Married by Mistake: Mr. Whitman’s Sinner Wife chapter 1967
“Carter Gray, you lose.”
Those four words gently drifted into Carter’s ears. Madeline’s voice, so pleasant to the ear, sounded extremely piercing to Carter right now.
An icy glint flashed across his cold eyes, but Madeline looked into his eyes fearlessly.
“Carter, you didn’t expect this, did you? My hypnosis was broken again. Everyone says that you’ re the master of hypnosis and that you have amazing hypnosis skills, but this shows that you’re not that great after all.”
Madeline parted her lips and continued with a slightly sarcastic tone.
“But perhaps it was because you had kept fighting for the royal succession, so your skills have deteriorated.”
Madeline’s words made Carter furrow his brows slowly.
At that moment, he did not know how to retort Madeline, yet he did not allow himself to stay silent for long.
A few seconds later, Carter chuckled lowly.
“Eveline, are you still mad at me? There are so many guests, and grandpa is also here. Stop making a fuss.”
Carter was speaking in a pleasant tone, furiously hinting at Madeline to take back what she said.
However, Madeline would not care about Carter’s hints of course.
“Carter, don’t always think about deceiving others. No matter how smart and skillful you are, it would be tragic for the people of St. Piaf to have someone like you as their next monarch.”
Madeline hit right where it hurt and did not hold back at all.
Carter stayed silent. He did not speak any further.
He could hear whispers all around him, and the fire in his heart intensified whenever the words crawled into his ear.
At this moment, the happiest person right now was Jim’s mother.
This situation was unfavorable to Carter, but this meant that it was great for Jim. Of course, as Jim’s mother, she was ecstatic.
Old Master Gray had not spoken for a long time. Presently, he looked at Carter who had been staying silent, and the Old Master finally spoke.
“Carter, you should answer me honestly in front of so many friends and family.” The old master’s face looked solemn, wisdom glinting in his aged eyes.
“Did you marry Miss Eveline Montgomery to use her identity and background to get the right to rule?”
Old Master Gray’s question was straight to the point. The atmosphere and air around them seemed to freeze in that instant. Everyone was waiting for Carter’s answer.
Camille was standing at one side. She looked worried and anxious.
Carter lowered his eyes and denied directly. “No, I would never use this kind of despicable means to reach my goals.”
“No, you did.”
This statement came from the crowd the next second after Carter denied that.
Carter’s pupils enlarged, seemingly in shock. In disbelief, he lifted his stunned but handsome face and followed everyone’s gaze toward the source of the voice.
He had not heard it wrongly because the person in front of him was none other than Shirley.
Shirley, seated in her wheelchair, moved the wheelchair skillfully and calmly toward Carter.
Old Master Gray and the Grays were not unfamiliar with Shirley. However, her current disfigured face and disability shocked everyone.
“Shirley?” Jim’s mother was the first one to exclaim in astonishment. “ It really is her. It’s been so many years, but how did she become like this?” exclaimed another shocked rich woman when she saw Shirley.
