Cheryl looked at Caroline in disbelief.
“Caroline, you must be joking, right? Your husband’s so handsome, and he’s a manager at Morrison
Corp. Do you know how many people would want to marry him?”
Caroline really didn’t have a clue.
After Cheryl explained things, Caroline finally understood that Kirk was an exceptional man when
it came to ordinary people. He was a very successful man.
Caroline had only considered Kirk an ordinary person because she had been comparing him to
men from wealthy families, those with riches that had been accumulating for multiple
Indeed, when compared to such men, Kirk didn’t have many advantages.
“Besides, women now have to look at more than what’s in men’s wallets. We also have to consider
their looks. With your husband’s looks, countless people would throw money at him even if he
Caroline was confused by this, and it showed on her face.
“I can tell that you don’t pay attention to what goes on in the entertainment industry at all. These
days, a male celebrity who’s not very handsome can easily find a sugar mommy to provide for him.
Seeing that Caroline had no idea how valuable her husband was, Cheryl started yet another round
By the time Jack got back, Caroline fully understood the situation. In fact, Kirk wasn’t an ordinary
person. Instead, he was much rarer than an endangered animal.
Cheryl’s explanation made Caroline understand why Dolly had directed her to investigate Kirk’s
marital status. She also understood why that mysterious woman had done what she had.
It was like what Mia had done, too. Since that person knew she couldn’t get Kirk, she wanted to
ruin Caroline’s relationship with him.
Caroline frowned as she looked at Kirk in the kitchen. After some thought, she handed the remote
control to Cheryl.
“Give me a holler when it starts.”
“Oh, sure.” After Cheryl said this, she watched as Caroline went straight toward the kitchen. She
couldn’t help but look, but Jack’s large figure blocked her line of sight.
Jack’s face was filled with joy, and he looked like he had won the lottery. This made Cheryl even
more suspicious that he might be in love with Kirk.
What a joke. Had her first romantic experience really ended with her falling for a gay man?
As she thought this, Cheryl prayed to any deity who would listen that it wouldn’t be so. She had
been a good person in her life, right? She deserved to have her prayer come true.
In the kitchen, Caroline pulled the door closed behind her, leaving Jack outside as he picked
through the vegetables he had bought.
Caroline leaned against the sliding door and looked at Kirk. “How’s the investigation going?”
Kirk paused in his work and looked at Caroline. “What investigation?”
“Dolly and that mysterious person?”
“There’s no development yet. I’ll have Charles put more effort into it.”
Caroline frowned as she looked deeply at Kirk.
In the end, she said in a huff, “Kirk, is it so hard to explain why it says that you’re married in your
Kirk gazed deeply into Caroline’s eyes, his gaze filled with grief. “I can only tell you that I can’t
explain things right now.”
“Then you…” Suddenly, Caroline remembered that there were outsiders beyond the door.
She took a deep breath and lowered her voice. “Can you give me a deadline?”
“I …” Kirk pressed his lips together.
“Darling, I hope even more than you that we can stay together. But if I can’t find a reasonable way
to deal with this, I’m afraid that I might hurt you very deeply. That’s not something I’m willing to
