The Rewritten Love: A Second Beginning By Max Charming chapter 177
Zach had gone to take a call.
Jadie happened to see the person coming back. “Madelyn, I made some gnocchi, do you want to have some?”
Madelyn shook her head and said weakly. “No need, you can have it. I’m going to bed.”
She held the handrail and went back to her room. After confirming the door was shut, she untied her shoulder straps and her dress slid down her body as she stepped barefoot on the carpet and walked into the shower.
Half an hour later, she got out of the bathroom, dried her hair, put on her pajamas and threw herself onto her bed. She did not even put away the clothes on the ground and just left them in a messy pile.
All the while, a men’s coat was hanging neatly on the hanger.
In the middle of the night, her phone by the bedside table lit up. She was deep asleep, and in her dreams, she saw a silhouette, its eyes deep and cold.
The next morning, Madelyn’s biological clock woke her up on time at 7:30 in the morning.
While she was brushing her teeth in the bathroom, she recalled the scene as she stepped into the door after she came back last night…
She had been too tired and had simply just left her skirt on the floor. When she woke up, her skirt was gone and also her pajamas….
Could it be? What she had seen last night..had it not been a dream?
Madelyn did not know what to think. She felt nauseous as she vomited violently into the toilet bowl.
Margaret was holding the clothes basket as she walked past and heard the commotion inside. the room. She put her ears on the door and heard the noise instead, so she knocked. “Miss Madelyn? Miss Madelyn… Are you alright?”
It took more than ten minutes before Madelyn opened the door.
“What?” The voice was cold and distant.
Seeing Madelyn’s bloodshot eyes, Margaret was shocked.
“Oh, good heavens, what happened to you? Did you not sleep well last night? Anyway, breakfast is ready, so go downstairs and eat. It’ll get cold otherwise.”
“You don’t have to bother me just for that.” Madelyn said as she slammed the door shut.
Having the door closed on her face, Margaret twitched her lips as she shook her head and said to herself. “What’s wrong with her? Everyone in this family sure has strange tempers!
Madelyn stood and looked out of the window. She was waiting for Zach and Jadie to leave before going downstairs.
After she went downstairs, Madelyn asked Margaret to contact a professional locksmith to install a separate sliding lock on her door. She had endured Zach again and again, but yet he still overstepped her boundaries.
“What was he trying to do, coming into my room?”
Madelyn arrived at class just as class was about to start. Everyone had gone back late from the banquet last night, and aside from her with dark eyebags, everyone else was focusing on answering the mock test questions.
Amidst the intense learning atmosphere, Madelyn quickly sat down and started working on yesterday’s remaining questions.
Yvonne walked towards her and said, “I’m sorry, Madelyn. I was too busy yesterday and couldn’t accompany you much. Did you have fun?”
A faint smile appeared at the corners of Madelyn’s mouth. “Yeah, it wasn’t that boring, and the desserts were delicious.”
“If you like them, I can bring you some tomorrow. What do you like? Ah, screw that, I’ll bring you some of each tomorrow!!!
“No need. Next time then.” Madelyn said, working on another question. “Since you’re looking for me so early in the morning, there has to be something you want. What’s up?”
Madelyn knew how Yvonne thought. The latter would not be nice to her for no reason and would not come looking for her unless she wanted something.
Yvonne said, “There’s actually two things. First, our Maths Olympiad teacher saw your results. and wanted to give you a chance to join the team, provided you pass your exams. The second thing is….
Please accompany me for dinner with your brother!”
Madelyn was left speechless.
