Chapter 30 Granting Your Death Wish
Edwin still didn’t realize he was displayed on the big screen, so he nodded without hesitation. “I would do anything you say, Maddie.”
Madeline chuckled. “Then would you be willing to tell all of our classmates present what really happened back then? How it was a peaceful breakup between us two and that we didn’t even hold hands when we were together?”
It was different from the rumor Edwin started. He said Madeline was clingy and slutty.
Edwin’s lips trembled, and he said weakly, “Maddie, I was wrong, but… it’s been so long. There’s no need to dig up the past.
“Huh.” Madeline sneered, “It seems like your words were not sincere, and you call yourself a simp.” After saying that, Madeline turned around and was about to leave when Edwin stopped her. “Maddie, don’t go!” Edwin panicked too much that he accidentally slipped on the floor and grabbed onto Madeline’s ankle.
Her slender ankles were smooth and fair, and Edwin was reluctant to let go of them.
Madeline frowned and then shook off his hands in disgust.
She looked down at Edwin lying on the ground and suddenly smiled. “You say you’re willing to do anything I say, right? Well, why don’t you polish my shoes?”
Edwin was stunned for a moment. He actually took off his suit to polish Madeline’s shoes.
At that moment, many people gathered in front of the big screen to watch the unfolding drama.
“Pfft, Edwin is the perfect epitome of the word simp.”
“Oh wow, it never crossed my mind that Edwin had been pretending not to care all this time.”
“I really overestimated this old friend of mine. I can’t believe he would go to such lengths for a
Sebastian narrowed his eyes and kept his attention on the aloof woman on the big screen above
Madeline didn’t show any emotion on her face from the beginning to the end. There was no sign of happiness coming from her even when Edwin was humbling himself to please her.
Sebastian couldn’t help smiling as a tsunami crashed over his heart.
Suddenly, there was another woman on the big screen.
“Edwin, have you gone crazy? What are you doing polishing Madeline’s shoes?”
The furious Juliette couldn’t believe her eyes.
Madeline calmly straightened her clothes and tucked her hair behind her ears. She was about to pull back her foot when to her surprise, Juliette pushed her down like a crazy person.
Behind them was a fountain several feet deep.
The water splashed everywhere as Madeline pulled Juliette down together.
Sebastian suddenly panicked and thought, “Madeline is afraid of water!”
He ran to the fountain like crazy.
However, someone reached there before him. Louis threw off his suit and jumped into the fountain
“Ah… Help! Help me!”
Juliette couldn’t swim. She kept on bobbing up and down in the water.
Madeline, who also fell into the water, poked her head out and grabbed Juliette’s hair. “Are you trying to kill me?” asked Madeline in a cold voice.
“Ah, please help me, Madeline,” Juliette shouted for help.
They were some distance away from the edge, and no one knew what had happened.
“Save you?” Madeline sneered, grabbed her hair, and pressed her hard into the water.
Juliette sensed her mouth and nose were being filled with water, so much so that she nearly couldn’t breathe anymore.
Madeline pulled her out of the water.
Then she pressed her down again.
“Let me grant that death wish of yours, Juliette.”
Madeline’s voice was cold.
“Just know that you deserve everything that’s coming for you today.
“The headline tomorrow would read ‘Ms. Juliette Jennings Died From Drowning’.
“But…” Madeline said coyly, “I have yet to humiliate you in front of everyone.”
Madeline was pumped with adrenaline. She wasn’t about to let go of the opportunity to humiliate
Madeline pulled Juliette out of the water. The latter was gasping for breath and looked every
bit as pitiful as a drowning dog.
Madeline calmly swam to the edge with Juliette in tow just as everyone was rushing to them.
Louis, who had already swam to the center of the fountain, breathed a sigh of relief when he saw the two of them were fine. “Ms. Jennings, you nearly scared me to death! Promise me you won’t ever pull something like this again.”
“I’m more able than you give me credit for,” said Madeline with a faint smile.
“I know that, but you never know what could have gone wrong.” Louis swam up to Madeline. “Up you go now. Take care not to catch a cold during these few days.”
The way Louis was looking at Madeline was filled with fondness. It was obvious he spoiled him like his own sister.
“Alright,” drawled Madeline languidly as she pulled Juliette the troublemaker up to the shore.
Even though both Juliette and Madeline fell into the water, the latter seemed to be made even more gorgeous. Madeline’s dress actually turned from white to red after being soaked in water, which made her even more alluring despite her being bare-faced.
She was even more enchanting than Aphrodite herself.
Everyone subconsciously took a gulp when they saw how stunning she looked.
As for Juliette, her makeup had been washed off, and she looked extremely pitiful with her wet clothes clinging to her body.
It just so happened that Juliette chose that time to cough vigorously which ruined her ladylike. image even more.
Juliette managed to snap out of it a little and was about to badmouth Madeline when she turned around and was vexed by what she saw.
What she saw was Louis gently drying Madeline’s hair. “It’s easy to catch a cold when your hair is wet. Behave yourself and don’t be angry.”
“Madeline, drink some latte to warm up your body.”
The classmates next to her offered her a cup of latte.
Madeline leaned lazily against the sofa and allowed Louis to wait on her hand and foot.
Sebastian, who was standing some distance away from them, tightened his fists slowly when he saw the loving scene in front of him.
Madeline’s smile struck a nerve in Sebastian.
“Is she really that happy after leaving me?”
Sebastian’s eyebrows twitched. He stood there unmoving for a few minutes.
Madeline used to be afraid of water, but now she was like a different person.
He couldn’t figure it out.
But one thing was for sure, he was more interested in Madeline than before.
“Madeline, how did you fall into the water just now?” asked someone in confusion as she didn’t know what happened.
Madeline put down the latte in her hand and smiled lightly. “Why don’t you ask Juliette instead?”
“It wasn’t me! Madeline tried to kill me when we were both in the water. You have to believe me.
She’s not as innocent as she looks. She wants me dead!”
Juliette tried her best to defend herself.
But everyone was looking at her like she was a dimwit.
“We all saw what happened on the big screen. You were the one who pushed Madeline into the
“Edwin was the one who tried to cheat on you. It has nothing to do with Madeline. How could you
be so ruthless to her?”
“Yeah, I never thought you’re this kind of person, Juliette. I can’t believe I’ve ever trusted you.”
“How can the two Jennings daughters be so different?”
Everyone was reprimanding Juliette.
Madeline closed her eyes and bathed under the sunlight. “Damn, this feels good.”
