Sean helplessly looked at Kirk in the passenger seat. However, Kirk was in a good mood. The corners of his lips curved into a small smile.
Following yesterday’s route, the two of them started visiting each house. With translators like Sean and Kirk around, they did better than yesterday.
Caroline finally had the opportunity to introduce the items she had brought from Easton, and Macovo’s residents could have a better understanding of the things she was giving them.
This approach undoubtedly increased the residents‘ trust in the four of them. And sure enough, they began opening up to them.
Several people said they were at the skating rink that day and saw that girl falling by herself.
Since she had made too much noise and was an outsider, they remembered her as clear as day.
They even offered to help record a video to prove Gwen’s innocence if necessary, which was an
Although they were only witnesses, they could at least prove that Mia’s side of the story was false.
Then, if Sean came forward and said that his girlfriend at the time was Gwen, it would greatly reduce Mia’s credibility.
Gwen had never thought of letting Sean admit that she was his girlfriend. She had never given
him the chance either.
After Mia had shown up, Gwen had been afraid that she could become like her mother or Mia,
someone who would become the worst person for the sake of love. Therefore, she had sent a
breakup text to Sean.
Thinking about it now, Gwen felt somewhat amused by her actions.
“What are you smiling about?” Sean asked as he drove, noticing Gwen smiling in the rearview
Gwen immediately stopped smiling. She glanced at Caroline, who was sleeping next to her, and
“Kirk is also asleep.”
“What are you talking about?” Gwen hissed, looking at Sean warily.
Sean gently looked at Gwen in the rearview mirror. “I’m saying we can take this opportunity to talk. After all, it’s still an hour’s drive to the next house.”
“That’s pretty far.” Gwen looked at the snowy roads outside the window. It was clear she was avoiding Sean’s topic.
“Gwen, I think we need to talk.”
“What is there to talk about?” Gwen leaned against the window.
“We’ve known each other for so long. After knowing about my relationship history, you should know that this is how I am. I’m fickle in relationships.”
“I don’t think so.”
Sean analyzed calmly, saying, “I think you’re afraid of being in a relationship because you’re afraid of losing it.”
When Sean hit the nail on the head, she said meekly, “Since you’re so good at analyzing people, why don’t you become a psychologist?”
Sean replied seamlessly, “Because I only want to be yours.”
Gwen let down her guard slightly, and she looked out the window uneasily. “Things aren’t that
simple. Relationships are like nails.”
“That’s right. Haven’t you heard of this analogy? When a nail gets hammered into a wooden board,
even if it gets removed, it’ll still leave a scar on the wood.
“Growing up, my parents were either talking about divorce or fighting. Do you think someone like
me can have happiness?”
Sean was about to speak when he heard Gwen’s faint voice.
“Actually, I dreamed of being with someone too. After all, who wouldn’t want to live in bliss with
“But after seeing Carol in so much pain, I gave up. If even someone as brave as Caroline isn’t
happy, do I deserve to be happy? I might as well be alone!”
