What if the mysterious person was a love rival?
What if that person had the same thoughts as Mia and sent her all those messages to sow the

She couldn’t contact Dolly, so she might as well try to find out who this “wife” of Kirk’s was.
Caroline took out her phone to message Marina. Her finger stopped abruptly before pressing the ”
send” button when she was suddenly reminded of something.
Caroline deleted the text she had been about to send and transferred ten thousand dollars to
Marina’s bank account instead.
“Thank you for helping me. My friend saw it already. The person you told me about was indeed the

You’ll be handsomely rewarded for this. -Caroline”
Money could open all doors. Indeed, Marina replied no more than three seconds after the message
had been qsent.
“Caroline, you’re being much too polite. Don’t worry, I’m on it! I’ll look into it first thing in the
Caroline sighed in disappointment, but it occurred to her that it was probably midnight where
Marina was, so she simply replied “Okay, thanks“.
She was about to switch off her phone, but it didn’t seem like Marina wanted their conversation to
end so soon.
Marina kept on asking Caroline about Caroline’s “friend” and why this “friend” of hers was so rich.

“I’ve worked day and night during your absence. Just look at these eyebags of mine.”
Kirk glanced sideways at Charles as he entered the office. “I’m sure the sales of our branches in
