Chapter 500 When he thought about Caroline’s text about seeing each other at City Hall on Wednesday, Kirk got even more upset.
Luckily, Charles already had a suspect. Soon, he found out that Daphne had indeed sent Caroline a message while Caroline and Kirk had been in Macovo. Plus, the timing was very close. That meant that it was most likely Daphne who had done it. With this proof, Charles immediately went to see Kirk. “Sir, look at this.” When he saw the proof, Kirk immediately frowned. “Call Daphne.” At this, Charles quickly piped up. “Sir, please calm down first. If you call Ms. Dawson now, Mr. Morrison Senior will find out about it and slowly discover your relationship with the madam. “When the time comes, your identity will be exposed without a doubt if Mr. Morrison Senior tells the madam about it.” Charles knew what Kirk wanted to do by calling Daphne. Indeed, it was despicable that Daphne had gone against the terms of her contract and told Caroline about her position. Yet, any sudden move could cause even bigger problems. Kirk massaged his pounding temples. He could only calm himself down by thinking of Caroline. After he calmed down, his messy thoughts untangled, and he could think a bit more clearly. Pinching the bridge of his nose, Kirk inhaled deeply before saying, “Go check what public events Caroline might attend in the coming days.” This was easy. All Charles had to do was send a message. Once he got a response, he said, “Sir, other than accompanying Ms. Norman for an audition tomorrow, the madam will spend all her time at the company. She has no events to attend.” Kirk hummed lowly for a moment. Then, he said, “I got it. You can leave now.‘ Charles hesitated but said, “Okay, sir.” After Charles left, Kirk stood up from his chair and walked to the floor–to–ceiling window. He looked at the stream of traffic below and felt uninterested in it for the first time ever. Compared to standing on top of the world, Kirk would rather be by Caroline’s side. +15 BONUS His gaze darkened as he thought about things. If he wanted to go back to Caroline’s side, he would have to calm himself and treat this the way he would when handling a difficult project at work. Otherwise… Although the logic was simple, Kirk found that he couldn’t see the situation as objectively as he would have before. Meanwhile, Caroline was the exact opposite. After being hurt in love, her thoughts became much clearer. She was even more energetic as she worked. After deciding on the time she and Sonia would set out tomorrow, Caroline looked at her watch. ‘ Go prepare yourself, then. Remember, you have to perform as I told you for that one scene.” Sonia hesitated for a moment before nodding. “Alright.” Earlier, Caroline had gotten her to stay because she wanted to tell Sonia where she thought the script didn’t quite make sense. When she had taken the changed script, Sonia had been stunned for a while. n A few days ago, when Caroline had said she found some parts of the script illogical, Sonia had thought that Caroline was just saying it offhandedly. She hadn’t expected that Caroline would insist on making changes to the parts she found inappropriate, even after finding out that Marietta Weiss had written it. After Caroline’s explanations, Sonia unconsciously began to feel that her edited version made more sense. Plus, she had only realized this after a few minutes of thought. However, Marietta was the one who had written this script. Surely, she wouldn’t like that someone had changed it. Sonia couldn’t help but worry about what would happen tomorrow. But the more she thought about it, the more she realized that she might not have gone to the audition if not for Caroline’s insistence and encouragement. Besides, since she already knew that this role would most likely be Daphne’s, why did she need to worry so much? She would be passed over anyway. As such, she might as well act out the scene the way Caroline had said.
