What a coincidence! Caroline’s husband’s surname was also Morrison.
“Thank you.” Caroline walked her to the door.
“Be careful on the way home. Hurry up and go. It would be bad if someone recognized you.”
“Okay.” Sonia glanced at Kirk one last time before looking away. This man was someone she could
only dream of.
Caroline didn’t notice it just now, but Sonia did. She knew martial arts, so she understood a martial
artist’s instinctive reaction when facing danger.
However, Kirk had taken a step back, putting himself in more danger. This wasn’t something a
typical martial artist would do. Therefore, he had done it on purpose.
He had probably done it to make Caroline worry.
Sonia curled her lips into a smile. That man would even risk his own life to get closer to Caroline.
Nothing could get this man away from her, not even God.
At this thought, Sonia’s steps relaxed a little as she walked.
Caroline looked at Kirk, who was lying on the hospital bed with a pale face. His eyes were closed.
He hadn’t woken up.
The doctor said he possibly hadn’t woken up because he was in too much pain.
Caroline took the chance to see Kirk’s appearance carefully. After looking at him, she noticed he
had really lost weight.
He used to have more flesh on his cheeks, but now his cheeks were slightly sunken, making him

She nervously looked up at Kirk.
Seeing that he was still asleep, she boldly reached out again, carefully touching Kirk’s palm. His
familiar touch made her heart race, and she slowly touched his skin with her fingers.
People were greedy. After feeling a hint of warmth, she wanted more.
It wasn’t until Caroline’s entire palm covered Kirk’s hand that she finally circled his wrist with her thumb and middle finger. His wrist had become thinner as well.
As Caroline felt the bones on his wrist, she felt her heart sting. She wondered if he had lost weight anywhere else. She glanced at his body, which was covered by the blanket.
Unbeknownst to her, Kirk, who was lying on the bed, slightly opened his eyes and was looking at Caroline secretly.
Her distress for him was like a drug, lessening the pain in his back.
Time passed silently. It was a quiet and beautiful moment between them.
Then, Kirk heard the sound of high heels tapping on the ground. He frowned slightly.
The next second, Gwen opened the door and walked in, panting. She asked nervously, “Are you okay, Carol?”
Caroline quickly let go of Kirk.
Kirk rolled his eyes with his eyes still closed.
