Caroline had never treated Adrian this coldly before.
But now, because he had brought up divorce, she …
He said, “But since he hit me, aren’t you worried that-”
“He won’t.” Caroline fully trusted Kirk when it came to matters of physical violence.
“He wouldn’t do something like that.”
Adrian immediately became speechless. The silence wrapped around his chest like a web. After a
while, he smiled. “You’re right. He wouldn’t.”
Caroline looked at him, confused by his words.
Adrian smiled, feeling resigned. “He punched me just now because I provoked him on purpose. So
he wasn’t in the wrong. I’m the wrongdoer here.”
Caroline’s expression shifted at his words. “Are you telling the truth?”
Her expression tugged at Adrian’s heart, but he still said with a smile, “Yeah.”
“Why did you do that?” Caroline was angry.
Adrian looked at her, hurt swirling in his gaze. All the things he wanted to say were stuck in his
After a moment, he smiled sadly and apologized, “I’m sorry. I just wanted to test him, but I never
thought it would cause such a big misunderstanding.”
“You shouldn’t be apologizing to me,” Caroline snapped at him. Then, she ran out of the room.
Looking at the empty door, Adrian smiled. It stretched his wound again.
However, he didn’t feel any pain this time, probably because the pain in his heart overshadowed
the physical pain in his cheek.
He had known for a long time that Caroline and her husband had a very good relationship. But he
hadn’t expected Caroline to care about him so much.
Even when they were fighting, they were on the same side.
Adrian seemed to have lost. However, he was very unwilling to admit that.
After Caroline left Adrian’s room, she went straight to the first floor. Yet, Kirk and Sean were no longer in the lobby.
She quickly asked the receptionist, who said they had already left. But she didn’t know where they had gone.
Caroline ran to the door, feeling dizzy from anxiety. Then, she realized that they might have gone to a nearby clinic. She ran to the front desk again and asked if a clinic was nearby.
The receptionist’s English wasn’t very good, and she had a Macovian accent. Caroline used a lot of effort to figure out what she was saying.
Although she was a bundle of nerves, she tried her best to listen to the receptionist’s directions
After getting the directions, she thanked the receptionist and hurriedly left the hotel. Following
the receptionist’s directions, Caroline headed to the nearby clinic.
Half an hour later, she finally arrived at the clinic. She happily opened the door, only to find the small clinic packed with people.
This was probably the largest clinic nearby, so the Macovians were here to see a doctor.
Caroline searched around, but she still couldn’t find Kirk. The excitement she felt dissipated in an
Having no choice, she squeezed her way to the nurse’s desk and asked if two foreigners had been
The nurse answered, “Yes, but they’ve already left.”
Caroline was about to turn around in disappointment, but she almost collided with two people
walking toward her.
When she clearly saw who they were, she frowned in confusion.
