Daphne wanted to become a world–renowned star through this role in “Daughter of the Sea“. That
way, maybe she could become Kirk’s real wife.
“Are we ready to start?”
Seeing the specially chosen actress standing on the stage without starting even after a long while, Marietta couldn’t help but frown.
Daphne quickly gathered her drifting thoughts. With a smile, she answered, “Yes.”
As she said this, she walked to the center of the stage and bowed before starting her performance.
Since Marietta’s script had to be kept extremely confidential, all the celebrities had only been given a sample portion.
One of the scenes involved the main character, Grace Fawkes, overseas and accidentally
discovering she wasn’t an orphan.
Instead, her mother was still alive and actually living in the same country. With the help of her
boyfriend, Grace finally found her mother.
Faced with the mother who had been absent for more than 20 years, Grace couldn’t find it in her to
forgive her. After an argument, they parted, upset.
This was a scene that involved conflict, so any actress with experience would choose to act out
Grace’s argument with her mother.
Daphne was no exception.
She knew very well how her acting skills measured up. However, she had no worries about her
performance since it had already been decided that she would be chosen for the role. Hence, she
wasn’t worried about acting out this scene.
Besides, it was a scene with a startling conflict. If she performed well, she would leave a deep
impression on Marietta.
It was the best move to make, yet also an easy one.
Onstage, Daphne began to act.
Below the stage, Caroline wasn’t paying attention to Daphne at all. She had told herself to get over things since she would be getting divorced tomorrow. But once Daphne went onstage, the heartache and fury rose uncontrollably within Caroline,
She was outraged.
Why? Why did she keep getting tricked by the Morrisons? First, she had been tricked by the Eddy and now Kirk.
How dare Kirk marry Daphne after marrying her? What did he think she was?
Her simmering energy quickly traveled through her legs to Kirk.
The way Caroline trembled was minute, like tiny bee stings that shot into Kirk’s heart. He wanted to pull her into his embrace and soothe her wounds. There was a lot that he wanted to do.
However, he realized at that moment just how useless he was.
He had once read that a lie needed a thousand more to be maintained. He hadn’t understood it
then, but now he felt it deeply.
Kirk raised his hand to hold Caroline’s.
The touch was like a jolt of electricity, and Caroline flung his hand away, her eyes flaring with
Although she didn’t say anything, her gaze was like daggers in his heart.
Caroline lowered her voice and said, “I don’t want to argue with you. You can say whatever you
want once we leave here.”
This was a theater. Caroline didn’t want to make such a fuss that everyone would find out about
“If you touch me again,” Caroline began icily, “then we won’t have anything to talk about.”
Kirk hesitated for a moment before obediently moving his legs away. The aggrievement in his
eyes made Caroline feel like a great weight had been placed on her heart.
