Caroline was speechless. For some reason, she sensed the childishness in Kirk’s tone.
However, she was a reasonable person. Kirk’s words did make sense. It was difficult to figure
things out with such little information.
Caroline found it hard to drive him away now. Forget it. She would just tell him tomorrow.
She walked to the dining table. When she saw the sumptuous feast on the table, her already full
stomach started to growl again.
After eating, Caroline completely forgot about asking Kirk to leave.
She only remembered about it after she reached work the next day. However, she couldn’t tell
Jack to turn the car around.
She massaged her forehead resignedly, secretly breathing a sigh of relief.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the city, Daphne was helping Jane choose a dress at home.
It would be Jane’s 55th birthday soon, and Howard planned to take advantage of the occasion to
announce his cooperation with Eddy’s second uncle.
The public had actually known about this for a long time. But there was a difference between
having an official announcement and not having one.
An official announcement showed tangible proof of any relationship, like a marriage certificate..
In addition, the more important reason why Howard did this was because he made a lot of money
when he worked with Kirk. He was eager to show his capabilities and become the second–top
family of the big four families.
Hence, although this year wasn’t a significant birthday milestone for Jane, Howard still planned
to make a big event.
Daphne had been picking outfits with Jane for more than two hours. Seeing that Jane was also
tired, she hurriedly supported her. “Let’s sit down for a while, Mrs. Collins.”
Jane nodded. “Okay.”
immediately brought the two glasses of fruit juice when they sat down.
“Why are you free today? You even have the time to choose clothes with me.”
“Don’t even talk about this.” Daphne groaned.
“Now, the entire crew is rushing to flatter the female lead.”
“Yeah, it’s that Sonia girl. You know her, right?”
Jane mused, “She has been very popular recently. I heard she’s one of Caroline’s people.”
Daphne’s expression instantly darkened at her words.
“What’s wrong? Did Caroline piss you off again?” Jane asked after taking a sip of her juice.
Daphne told Jane what had happened yesterday.
After hearing this, Jane was so angry that she slammed her cup on the table.
“What a busybody! You’re Eddy’s aunt–in–law! What’s wrong with you hitting the female lead?
“You have the right to hit the entire crew if it makes you happy! So what if you did that?”
Jane’s words irked Daphne. Ever since she had become Kirk’s fake wife, she had the world in the
palm of her hands.
However, that perk had been ruined the day she met Caroline! Now, she didn’t even have the
freedom to hit anyone she wanted.
Daphne whispered, “Can you please help me teach her a lesson? I really can’t let this go.”
Jane’s expression faltered. It would be a miracle if Daphne could let this go.
Besides, she hadn’t gotten her revenge on Caroline for what happened to her daughter! However.
“We don’t have to go through so much trouble this time. We can just hire a bunch of punks to
teach her a lesson.”
“Will this work?” Daphne was worried.
“It’s best to take a simple approach. The simpler our methods, the more effective they will be. You
don’t need to worry. I’ll get someone to handle this.”
