Cheryl was confused when she came into the office. “Mr. Lane,” he said.
Charles threw a panicked glance at Caroline. He really didn’t know how to explain things. Thus, he could only try to keep her calm.
“Madam, there must be a misunderstanding here. Please calm down first. Don’t act rashly.”
After saying that, Charles rushed to leave. He had to tell Kirk about this as soon as possible.
In the beginning, he had submitted documents to say that Kirk was already married so that Jude wouldn’t become suspicious. However, the documents never stated who Kirk’s wife was.
Caroline must have found out about this from that mystery person. Charles was sure about it.
se Charles left, the strength that had been holding Caroline together disappeared. She slumped
hair as her complexion turned pale.
is, Cheryl got a huge fright. She felt extremely worried for Caroline.
“Caroline…” she called.
Caroline waved her off. “Get Sonia to come in,” she said.
Cheryl tried again. “Caroline.”
“I’m fine. The audition for the role of the female lead in ‘Daughter of the Sea‘ is tomorrow. We don’t have much more time. Hurry and have Sonia come in.”
Although she was saying this to Cheryl, she meant it for herself. Caroline had to put all her focus into Sonia. She would help Sonia get the lead female role.
Caroline wanted to prove to the Morrison family, especially to Kirk, that not everyone would be their plaything. They couldn’t do whatever they pleased with them!
Helpless, Cheryl could only summon Sonia.
In the SY Group’s branch office, Charles was panting. He even forgot to knock before he barged into Kirk’s office.
“Sir, we’re in trouble,” Charles said, still out of breath.

Kirk’s expression became stormy. His knuckles went white where he held the armrests. “What did
“I just went to see the madam. She told me your wife abroad is Daphne Dawson, and Daphne is Mr.
Eddy’s second uncle’s wife.
“I think she only guessed that you’re Mr. Eddy’s second uncle because she found out that Daphne
is your wife. But I never gave a name for your wife on your papers-”
Before Charles could finish speaking, Kirk grabbed him by the collar.
“Did she say anything else? Was she very angry?”
Charles was at a loss for words. He thought that Kirk had missed the point.
I was only thinking that I had to rush back to you. I wasn’t paying attention …” Charles didn’t

Looking at Kirk’s reddened eyes carefully, he repeated carefully, “Sir, I didn’t give a name for your wife on the papers.”
He elaborated, “That means the madam wouldn’t have been able to know your wife is Daphne even
if she managed to contact the higher–ups in Macldo’s administration.
“Do you think that… Ms. Dawson…” Charles hesitated.
Kirk had a vein bulging at his temple. Feeling worked up, he said, “Spit it out!”
“This is only a guess.” Charles swallowed.
“Could Ms. Dawson have told the madam about this?”
Kirk suddenly let Charles go. “Investigate it immediately!”
“Yes, sir.” Charles turned to leave in a hurry.
Kirk rubbed his nose before picking up his phone hesitantly. When he unlocked the phone, he was met with the sight of Caroline’s sweet smile.
