When Caroline saw Kirk, the smile on her face vanished.
The huge change in demeanor told Jack, clueless as he was being said to be, that Kirk and
Caroline hadn’t settled the issues between them.
This was the first time Cheryl had seen Kirk. It was only when Jack went forward to help him with the bags that she realized this was Caroline’s husband. She had been dying to meet him for
Damn! He was so handsome!
Cheryl wasn’t interested in fangirling, so she had never understood how excited people might feel
when they met their idols. However, she had a taste of that feeling just then.
After all, people just couldn’t resist a handsome face.
“Caroline, Caroline. Your husband is so handsome!” Cheryl clutched Caroline’s sleeve as she said
this. She completely forgot that Caroline and Kirk were currently fighting.
Seeing Cheryl lose her composure, Caroline felt less guilty.
See, it wasn’t just her who couldn’t stand up to the power of Kirk’s looks. He was simply too
handsome. So handsome that one’s principles turned to dust.
The four of them went into Caroline’s apartment.
“Sir, should we leave?”
Kirk looked up at Jack but didn’t say anything.
Stuck at the door of the kitchen, Jack didn’t know whether to leave or not. He complained
inwardly, “You should tell me properly if I should leave or not!”
It was a shame that Kirk couldn’t hear his thoughts. Rather, he was struggling with it himself.
This was the first meal they would be having together since fighting. Kirk had spent a whole
afternoon just buying the ingredients for dinner. Seeing the people Caroline had brought over, his
mood went down to the pits.
And seeing the unreserved way Caroline had laughed in front of them made Kirk burn with
He had already been debating whether to chase them off while downstairs. In the end, the choice
of not chasing them off won out.
After all, he still wanted to see Caroline smile, even if it wasn’t because of him.
“The madam invited you two here. Won’t it be disrespectful to her if you just leave?”
Kirk smoothly started washing the vegetables. As he did, he said, “I only bought enough food for two. Follow this list and go buy another portion.”
Jack’s eyes widened. “Sir, are you going to cook us dinner personally? That’s inappropriate, right?”
Although he said this, Jack was overjoyed inside. He guessed that not even Charles had
experienced having this billionaire cook for him.
Kirk shot him a cold glance.
Jack didn’t waste any more time chitchatting. He joyfully told Caroline that he was going grocery
shopping before he left.
Cheryl looked at Kirk as he busied himself in the kitchen. Then, she looked at the door. Abruptly,
her expression shifted. She clutched Caroline’s arm in unease. “C–Caroline …”
Caroline was currently turning on the TV. “What is it?”
“Do you think … Could Jack possibly … like your husband?”
The remote control in Caroline’s hand fell to the ground with a loud clatter.
After being stunned for a moment, she bent down to pick it up.
“What nonsense are you spouting, Cheryl? How could Mr. Jack like-”
“But,” Cheryl started, “do you remember? Jack said he stopped having that crush on you after he
met your husband.
“Could it be that it’s not because he saw how much your husband loves you but because he fell in
love with your husband?”
Caroline looked toward Kirk in the kitchen and fell deep into thought. “Is he … that popular?”
