The three poor souls were once again thrown into the pool. They swallowed water, then got pulled
up again. This repeated over and over again.
Until Kirk finally got there.
Once Kirk arrived, the three men felt the threat of death looming above them. For a moment, they
didn’t want to be pulled out of the water again. They even wanted to pass away right there in the
But things didn’t always happen the way they wanted them to.
The three were mercilessly pulled out of the water and dumped in a heap before Kirk.
Meanwhile, Kirk played with the knife in his hand, not even looking at the three men.
But the men were terrified by this and started frantically begging for their lives.
“Sir, we were blind to offending you. Please let us go. We’ll never do it again!”
The three men groveled and begged to show their sincerity.
Kirk caressed the blade and said coldly, “Who sent you?”
The three started denying it immediately. “No, we only targeted her because we thought she was
pretty. We also… also did the same in the bar… Grabbed some pretty girls… But we really didn’t
Kirk put the knife away and suddenly cut them off. “Alright, then tell me which eye saw her first.”
The three blinked.
Kirk had already thrown the knife in front of the three men. “Gouge the eye out, and I’ll let you
The three men were so shocked that their faces turned white. They continued to grovel and beg in
Kirk calmly stood up and said, “Sean, I’ll leave the rest to you.”
Sean replied, “Alright.”
As Kirk walked out of the pool area, his displeasure hadn’t lessened at all.
Sean followed Kirk out swiftly after. He passed Kirk a cigar and teased, “Done so soon? Kirk, I think your prowess isn’t what it used to be.”
Kirk ignored Sean and lit the cigar. He took a deep breath and exhaled. The white smoke hid the annoyance in his eyes.
“How do you plan on explaining your marriage overseas to Caroline?” Sean exhaled a cloud of smoke as well.
Kirk looked up into the sky. “I don’t know yet.”
“Why don’t you be honest with her? Once you tell her the truth, there won’t be any more of these troubles.”
Kirk smiled mockingly. “Do you know why Caroline was so angry?”
“Isn’t it because she thinks you have another wife overseas? Because she thinks you’re a bigamist?
“If only it were that simple,” Kirk said.
“This isn’t the first time she’s asked if I would lie to her. Thus, the main thing about this is that I
lied to her.”
Sean inhaled a breath and scoffed.
“So if you tell her now that you’re Kirk Morrison, that the celebrity isn’t actually your wife, and
that you’re only doing this to trick Mr. Morrison Senior, she’ll only be more mad at you.”
Sean didn’t say anything more.
The two smoked in silence for a while.
Seeing that his cigar was about to come to an end, Sean suddenly laughed.
“Women are really interesting. Caroline is most afraid of being lied to, but Gwen seems to be most
afraid of being comfortable.”
Sean’s heart tugged at the mention of Gwen.
“In her world, dating should be happy and not involve any kind of fuss. If there’s any trouble, she would rather not date.”
Kirk put out his cigar. “Caroline was tricked by Eddy before. That’s why she minds it so much.”
At the mention of Eddy, Kirk’s eyes dimmed. If Eddy hadn’t been his nephew, he might have died a few times already.
Sean also put his smoke out. “I can understand why Gwen’s like this too. After all, her parents… Oh, how are we getting out of this impasse?”
Right then, a pained cry rang out from behind them. It was probably someone losing their eye.
Sean and Kirk didn’t look back. Instead, they looked quietly into the distance.
They were people who wouldn’t be troubled by anything. Yet, when it came to matters of the heart, they were being given a run for their money.
When Caroline woke up the next day, she looked at the clothes still on her body and heaved a sigh of relief.
Right then, a low voice rang out. “Awake?”
Caroline got a shock. She turned to look at Kirk standing by the door, like he was a ghost. “Y–y–y -you … How …”
“Here’s some hangover cure.”
Kirk brought some pills and placed them on the bedside table. He didn’t linger, going straight back to the door.
“I know you don’t want to see me right now, but you shouldn’t punish yourself because of my
After saying that, Kirk went out and closed the door softly.
Caroline was stunned. She turned her head to look at the pills on the table as memories of last
night slowly came to mind.
Last night, Kirk seemed to have brought her home. And then, they had even …
Thinking of the ache all over her body, Caroline’s expression changed. She rushed out of the
bedroom and said, “Kirk, last night, did we …?”
Kirk was currently cooking When he heard Caroline’s words, he turned to face her and asked, ”
Caroline’s face turned red “I mean that!”
Kirk was thoroughly confused. He put down the spatula and asked, “What?”
Caroline thought he was doing this on purpose in the past, she would have called this foreplay, but now she only thought that Kirk was being too mean. So mean that she couldn’t help but shove
“Get out, get out! Just get out of here!”
As Caroline pushed him along, Kirk said, “Caroline…”
“Don’t call my name!” Caroline protested, pushing Kirk right out of the door.
Helpless, Kirk knocked on the door. He said, “Darling, the stove is still on. You have to remember
to turn it off!”
“You don’t need to bother!” Caroline shouted at Kirk in anger. After shouting, she wiped the tears
off her face, feeling aggrieved.
What right did Kirk have to act like a gentleman here when he was a bigamist?
Despite what she said, Caroline still went in and turned off the stove when she passed by the
Although Kirk had done wrong, he had a point with what he said. Why should Caroline punish
herself when he was the one who messed up?
Caroline should live her life, eating what she wanted and doing what she wanted.
Thinking of that, she first went to the bedroom and took the hangover pills. Then, she scooped the
food in the pan onto a plate. To stop herself from overthinking, she purposely turned on the TV
and looked around for a sitcom to watch.
Right then, Caroline suddenly noticed the medication on the table. She picked it up in confusion,
only to find that the medication was a cure for aphrodisiacs.
Did that mean nothing had happened between her and Kirk last night? Then why did she feel so….
More memories flooded her mind. Being in the car. The three men. Kirk…
Caroline’s eyes abruptly widened, her hand trembling as it held the box of medication
Kirk actually hadn’t touched her?
Caroline shoved aside the strange disappointment she felt and opened the door.
But Kirk was no longer outside.
