Kirk’s eyes turned slightly cold. He realized that, right now, Caroline would protect anyone but
“Look!” Caroline put her hands on her hips.
As if disciplining a pet, she scolded, “A smart man like Charles is now acting like a fool. Don’t you
know intensive work can drive people insane?
“If his family sued you for exploiting your subordinates, they would win every single time.”
Charles, who had been so moved that he was about to shed tears, gawked at her. “Huh?”
So she was so worried because she was afraid he would sue Kirk for abusing his subordinates?
A hint of a smile appeared on Kirk’s face.
“How are you still smiling?” Caroline became even more annoyed.
“You know, I can actually report you to the authorities for threatening your subordinate that you’ll
deport him to another country. Also, please have some common sense. Not every winter country
Charles wanted to interject and tell Caroline that there were penguins in winter countries.
However, this was the SY Group’s secret plan. It hadn’t been announced yet.
But soon, he realized that now wasn’t the time to dwell on this. Caroline was disciplining his boss
like a child.
As the only witness to this occurrence, he would probably have to be deported this time.
Everything was screwing him over!
“So are you worried about me?” Kirk asked.
His smile was so bright it could melt the coldest of hearts.
Charles was stunned by the sight. His… his boss wasn’t angry at all. Instead, he was quite happy
to be disciplined. Since when had Kirk become a masochist?
Caroline frowned, wondering how he had come to this conclusion.
The smile on his face had some strange allure. She felt as if warmth grazed her cheek, making her irritable.
“You’re nuts.” After saying these words, Caroline turned around and returned to her room.
Kirk looked at the closed door, his lips still curled into a smile. He smiled so brightly that it melted Charles‘ heart. It seemed that the couple was about to live a happy life soon.
As expected, Kirk coldly glanced at Charles the next moment. “Get out of here.”
Charles was delighted not to be punished. He took the opportunity and asked, “So … What about the investigation, sir?”
Kirk sneered, “Are you pushing your luck?”
Charles answered, “I wouldn’t dare.”
As he turned around, he heard Kirk’s voice behind him. “I’ll give you an extension for my wife’s sake.”
“How much time are you giving?” Charles looked at Kirk expectantly.
Kirk gave Charles a look, and then he went into the kitchen.
Charles walked out of the room and let out a sigh. Although Kirk hadn’t given him a deadline, judging from tonight’s situation, the coast was clear.
As long as Charles pleased Caroline, all his problems would be solved!
It didn’t mean he could just complain to her whenever he encountered something difficult, though.
Charles, who had found a backer, instantly livened up and happily walked out of the elevator.
At this time, in Caroline’s home, Kirk put the food he prepared on the table. Then, he walked to the door of Caroline’s room and knocked. “Darling, the food is ready.”
Caroline felt annoyed hearing Kirk’s alluring voice. She looked at the ceiling and tried to think back on something. Then, she remembered letting Kirk move in because her home had been robbed.
No, she couldn’t let him keep living here! They were fighting right now, but he wasn’t acting like
that was the case and was constantly showing up around her.
When Kirk spoke again, Caroline took a deep breath and opened the door expressionlessly. She
asked, “Where’s Charles?”
“He already left.”
Caroline frowned and was about to say something when Kirk said with a smile, “Don’t worry, darling. You were right. I’ve deferred the deadline for his work.
“It’s really difficult for him to investigate someone with little information. But I can’t help it. I
want to know who’s behind all this as soon as possible.”
