Chapter 32 Deterrence Penology 

Before the break of dawn, Madeline was awoken by the sound of a barking dog.

She scowled and turned over in her bed, feeling dissatisfied as the noise downstairs grew louder and more grating by the second. It was an unwelcome disturbance to Madeline’s peace and quiet. Madeline donned her pajamas and stumbled down the stairs lazily.

As she descended, she was greeted by the sight of a massive wolfdog lounging in the center of the living room, with Juliette standing nearby, teasing the animal with gleeful abandon. Madeline shared her mother’s distaste for large animals. They were both gentle women who preferred small pets over big, wild creatures like wolfdogs.

The fact that this particular wolfdog had disturbed Madeline’s sleep only intensified her dislike. “Juliette, are you out of your mind?” Madeline screamed, with her frustration evident.

The wolfdog was untrained, and its teeth were sharp and dangerous. It could easily bite someone.” Suddenly chastised, Juliette lost her good mood and became a little afraid of Madeline. She explained, “My friend brought this back from abroad. It’s worth millions of dollars. I have to take care of it.” She spoke with a hint of pride in her voice.

Madeline couldn’t help but laugh inwardly at the naivety of her cousin. “How foolish to believe everything people say,” she thought to herself. “This is clearly a wild dog. You can’t just buy it overseas.”

Madeline motioned to Noel and instructed him, “Lock this dog up in a cage, and don’t let it out.” Juliette was unafraid of the wolfdog, but Madeline was concerned that such a large animal could harm the servants of the Jennings family.

“No, you’re not touching it,” Juliette shouted, subconsciously wanting to protect her beloved wolfdog.

“What an idiot,” Madeline commented dryly.

“Noel, lock the dog and Juliette in separate cages. Only when I wake up can you release Juliette,” Madeline said with a yawn, wanting to return to bed for a nap. This left Juliette stunned by her sudden command.

Juliette instinctively stepped back as Noel approached and warned, “Don’t touch me. I’m Juliette Jennings, the second daughter of the Jennings family.”

Madeline sneered in response, “Juliette, let me remind you that I provided everything you enjoy in the Jennings family. If I don’t want to give it to you, your status will be no different than that of the dog.”

Noel was cold-hearted but couldn’t help feeling a sense of thrill at Madeline’s words. “That’s how Ms. Madeline Jennings should be,” he thought. “Proud and unrestrained. No one can bully her.”

“Noel, take them away. If anyone disturbs me again, they’ll receive the same treatment,” Madeline ordered before gracefully making her way upstairs.

This was a clear demonstration of deterrence penology.

The servants who once served Juliette in the Jennings residence immediately dared not protest.

Even when performing their duties, they did so as gently as possible so as not to disturb Madeline’s rest.

After her nap, Madeline felt refreshed and ready for the day ahead. Dorothy had already prepared her breakfast by the time she woke up. It wasn’t until just before she left for the office that Madeline vaguely recalled having locked a person in a dog cage.

As Madeline emerged from her car and placed her feet on the ground, her balance faltered, and she found herself face to face with a pair of sleek black leather shoes attached to a pair of long, straight legs.

“Dominic,” Madeline rasped, her nose instantly reddening. It was her second-oldest brother, back in

town too!

“My little girl is crying again. I didn’t believe Wilson when he said you were crying last time, but now I do,” Dominic teased, delicately producing a tissue to dab away her tears.

Madeline was always closest to Dominic, confiding in him all her secrets. As a child, he was her protector, standing in front of her and showing her how to stand up to bullies..

“Did someone bully you again?” Dominic asked, wiping her tears away with his hand.

Madeline sniffled and replied, “No, I’ve gotten rid of all the bullies.”

“My Maddie is so strong.” Dominic beamed, his cheeks displaying two shallow dimples.

“Domi, let’s head to the office first. I’ll be done for if someone snaps a photo of us,” Madeline said, helplessly sticking her tongue out.

Her brother had become an international celebrity. Dominic was incredibly talented, and his looks alone were enough to make all the young heartthrobs pale in comparison. It was no exaggeration to say that he was the hottest guy on the entire planet.

“No one would dare take pictures of us together,” Dominic said, affectionately ruffling Madeline’s hair.

“I brought you a gift. Let’s take it inside,” said Dominic as he took out a gift box from behind.

Madeline’s eyes lit up. She loved getting surprises from Dominic.

“Let’s go inside,” Madeline said, taking Dominic by his arm to the CEO-only lift so they wouldn’t be

seen.

Upon entering the office, Dominic’s eyes roamed around the wide space and the bright floor-to-ceiling window.

His attention was drawn to the solid red wooden table that had a simplistic decoration and a family photo sitting among some office supplies.

After a brief moment of silence, Dominic flashed a smile at Madeline. “Maddie, these colors are too dull. Don’t you prefer pink? I can have someone decorate it for you.”

Madeline declined his offer with a shake of her head. “Dad used to work here. I don’t want to ruin it. This is good enough.” The mention of their father weighed heavy on her heart, causing her mood to drop once again.

You silly girl, how could a redecoration ruin anything? It’s a new beginning, and your leadership will be the best promise to them. And when Jennings Group prospers under your lead, your brothers will join you and work for you.” Dominic’s words always had a way of amusing Madeline and

making her feel relaxed.

“Domi, are you leaving again?” Madeline asked, looking up at him expectantly.

The big city was very lonely for Madeline, without any family around.

“I’m not leaving,” Dominic replied, looking at Madeline’s reflection in the window. His little sister had grown up so quickly and was now so beautiful. “I’ll be staying to accompany you,” he added. with a smile.

Madeline felt relieved. “Yarwood still has a vacant apartment. Would you like to live there?” she asked but then thought better of it. She wanted to wait a while and let her three brothers live in the Jennings estate. She told herself to “wait for the right moment.”

“Hmm?” Dominic smiled. “Now my little sister can support me,” he joked, thinking of bragging to his friends in their group chat later.

“Anyway, it’s vacant. You can just get someone to clean it and live there,” said Madeline.

Dominic did not expect that from Madeline. He thought Madeline was so caring as to have an apartment ready for him to live in. “There’s no need. The agent arranged a place for me. The place where I sleep every day is different,” he added with a helpless sigh.

Madeline tilted her head, trying to understand the challenges of being a big star.

Dominic grinned mischievously as he approached the table, gift box in hand. “Maddie, I’ve got something for you,” he announced, his eyes lighting up with excitement. With a flourish, he lifted the lid of the box to reveal a dazzling pink diamond necklace. It was a rare piece that had made international headlines for its exorbitant price and mysterious buyer. Madeline’s heart skipped a beat as she gazed at the stunning piece of jewelry. She had always wanted to own it, but back then, when she was still a member of the Faraday family, she had to keep her desires hidden for fear of exposing her true identity. Little did she know, the mysterious buyer was none other than her own brother, Dominic.

Chapter 33 Seemingly Unbreakable Ties

Madeline was at a loss for words. “Domi, how could you…” she exclaimed, surprised at the extravagant pink diamond necklace that her brother had just presented to her.

“The first time I saw it, I thought of you, Maddie. It matches you very well. Except for you, it would

be a waste for anyone else to wear it,” Dominic said seriously, looking at his sister with admiration.

Madeline was touched once again by her brother’s thoughtful gesture.

As tears began to form in her eyes, Dominic comforted her. “Don’t cry. I’ll put it on for you.”

As the cold necklace touched her skin, Madeline trembled slightly.

She realized how good it felt to have her family around her, especially after being alone for so long.

It was a reminder that despite everything, she was not alone in this world.

As Jonas entered the office, Dominic was taken aback by the sudden knock on the door.

“It’s Jonas.” Madeline chuckled, amused by her brother’s reaction.

Dominic scratched the little girl’s nose playfully and promised, “I won’t disturb you anymore. I’ll take you to eat street food next time, okay?”

Madeline swallowed her saliva at the thought of the savory food. Dominic truly understood her. She gave a fervent nod, determined to visit the street food vendor again soon.

As Dominic left, Jonas entered, momentarily stunned at the sight of Mr. Jennings back in the office. “Yes… Mr. Jennings is back!” he exclaimed.

Madeline beamed with joy. “Yes, my brother is back.”

Jonas clenched his fists, his heart filled with elation. He thought to himself, “Mr. Jennings’ return meant that Ms. Jennings wouldn’t have to shoulder the burden alone.”

He couldn’t be more thrilled for Madeline.

“How is the design department?” Madeline swiftly shifted into work mode.

Jonas had come in solely to deliver a report on the matter.

The Jennings Group had always been a major player in the real estate industry, with other businesses considered mere sidelines. In the past, they struggled in non-real estate ventures, but with perseverance, they managed to turn things around. Unfortunately, their design department had hit a creative drought for many years.

“The gross merchandise value you mentioned earlier is slightly better than last month, but it’s still not good enough. Their design inspiration is almost non-existent,” Jonas reported as he placed the integrated materials on Madeline’s desk.

Madeline quickly scanned through them and formulated a plan.

“We need to shake things up. Let’s bring in people from the entertainment industry to lead the design team and elevate Jennings Group’s reputation,” Madeline declared, her eyes narrowed as she contemplated her next move.

She was determined to make the Jennings Group a comprehensive company, just as her father had envisioned.

“Alright, I’ll take a look at the recruitment list. We’re going to make some serious changes to the

design department,” Jonas replied, nodding in admiration of Madeline’s bravery.

He knew that the entire department might have to endure some gossip and criticism, especially since Madeline wasn’t just promoted to leadership but rather was placed in a high-ranking position. from the get-go. Naturally, some people would be unhappy about it.

“Don’t worry, Jonas. If anything goes wrong, I’ve got your back,” Madeline reassured him. With her shoulders lowered and her eyes gleaming with determination, she exuded a sense of unwavering strength.

Jonas found himself unexpectedly inspired by her words.

Madeline was engrossed in thoughts about the property listings when a voice message from Louis interrupted her. His booming voice nearly made her drop her phone. “Maddie, are you a damn wizard or what? The share price of Faraday Corporation has skyrocketed after its major dip, just as you predicted!”

Madeline raised an eyebrow, unsurprised by the sudden change.

The stock market was unpredictable, but the fluctuation in Faraday Corporation’s share prices seemed suspiciously orchestrated.

Most people wouldn’t notice, but Madeline had a sharp eye for such manipulations.

“Stop buying it,” Madeline typed back to Louis, her slender fingers tapping on the keyboard.

The share price was too volatile, and anyone who jumped in now was likely to lose money.

“Say, Maddie, are you that enigmatic investor who always hits it big?” Louis inquired playfully.

Madeline gazed thoughtfully at the screen before typing a calm reply, “Did you fall asleep with your head on the ground and wake up still dreaming?”

Louis was left speechless. He’d never won an argument with Madeline, who always remained composed and elegant, never stooping to insults or profanity.

Madeline was feeling overwhelmed as she glanced at the papers spread out before her.

She had never enjoyed reading when she was in school and would often doze off after just 30 minutes of reading.

But despite this, her mind would absorb all of the information she needed in that short amount of

time.

Madeline remembered the doctor telling her during a physical examination at the hospital that her brain was different from that of ordinary people, meaning that she was exceptionally intelligent. However, this also meant that she had to be careful not to reveal it so as to avoid becoming an experimental subject.

From that point on, Madeline made a point to avoid physical examinations.

Madeline shook her head, feeling slightly dizzy. It looked like she would have to visit the hospital again.

Meanwhile, at Yarwood Hospital, a caretaker stood guard outside a ward, urging. “Mr. Faraday, please reconsider. Mrs. Faraday is in a fragile state right now. Going inside might worsen her condition.”

“Mrs. Faraday said that you can only come in if you take Ms. Jennings home,” the caretaker

reiterated Agnes’ words after a moment of hesitation.

Sebastian pursed his lips tightly, suppressing the sadness in his heart, and asked, “How is Agnes. doing?”

The caretaker shook her head. “Her blood pressure stabilized briefly, but your divorce triggered her again, causing the tumor in her brain to start spreading. The doctors say that without prompt. surgery, even the miracle doctor may not be able to save her.”

Sebastian’s eyes narrowed. He hadn’t expected the situation to be so dire.

But he had yet to find the miracle doctor.

“Schedule the surgery for next week,” Sebastian said in a low voice.

He decided to abandon the search for the miracle doctor. Even if he found one, Agnes might not survive long enough for the doctor to treat her.

Instead, he would invite foreign doctors to perform the surgery in a week’s time, hoping for a higher success rate.

Sebastian stepped forward, and the caretaker quickly blocked his path. “Mr. Faraday, please, I implore you not to enter,” the caretaker pleaded, fully aware that she had no real authority to stop him.

Sebastian narrowed his eyes. “I’ll just take a look from outside,” he said, stepping closer to the glass door to catch a glimpse of Agnes.

In today’s visit, Agnes looked frail but still had the strength to flip through a photo album belonging to Madeline.

On the other hand, Sebastian avoided looking at her and instead focused on the ground.

He couldn’t quite understand his own thoughts about Madeline.

It seemed that everything in his life at the moment revolved around Madeline. “How could this woman be so capable that she swayed even his grandmother? Or was it him who wanted everything to be connected to her in some way?” thought Sebastian to himself.

Sebastian felt like he was trapped in a never-ending cycle and the one at the center of it all was

none other than Madeline.

Sebastian reached into his pocket to grab a cigarette, but then he remembered that he was at a hospital and decided against it.

“Please take care of my grandmother. Call me if anything happens,” Sebastian instructed the caretaker, leaving his business card with her before making his exit from the hospital through a side door.

As fate would have it, Madeline arrived through the front door just as Sebastian left.

Though he walked with his head lowered and missed her, Madeline caught a glimpse of Sebastian’s slim profile.

The ties between them seemed unbreakable.

For years, Madeline had been in love with him, and she knew his scent like the back of her hand-she could pick it out from a mile away.
