His eyes were hauntingly dark. The pressure of his gaze made it impossible for her to breathe.
Daphre only knew one person who was this intimidating. It was none other than Kirk, her fake husband. Thinking of her fake husband, Daphne instantly felt emboldened, and she wasn’t afraid of the man before her anymore. “Who do you think you are? How dare you stop me?” Kirk shook off Daphne’s hand with a sullen look. It was as if he could tear Daphne apart with his glare. Daphne looked Kirk up and down, completely unaware of his hostility. “Oh… If I’m not mistaken, you must be Caroline’s husband.” The situation would still have been manageable if Daphne hadn’t said anything. When she did, Kirk and Caroline both looked at her with chilling glares. However, Daphne didn’t notice anything and continued to mock, “I know you! You’re Caroline’s unsightly husband. You’ve been married for so long, but you must be very ugly if you don’t dare to show your face in public!” Her words made Caroline speechless. Anyone could call Kirk whatever they wanted, but she absolutely couldn’t condone anyone calling him ugly. If Kirk was ugly, everyone else was a monster. “Don’t change the subject, Daphne!” Caroline walked up to Daphne, dragging Sonia with her. “Why did you hit Sonia?” “She deserves to get hit! She didn’t have the right to take my role away!” Her excuses amused Caroline. /‘Ms. Marietta wrote ‘Daughter of the Sea‘, and Collins Group and Morrison Corp invested in the play. What makes you think the role is yours?” “The fact that I’m the wife of Eddy’s second uncle!” Daphne spoke confidently, putting her hands on her hips. Caroline really wanted to expose the truth that Daphne wasn’t the wife of Eddy’s second uncle. 1/2 *15 BONUS But when she thought about how much trouble Eddy’s second uncle had gone through to keep it secret, she gave up on the idea. After all, he had helped her before. She couldn’t bite the hand that fed her “You’re his wife, you say?” Someone spoke, their voice filled with contempt. Everyone’s eyes landed on Kirk. Daphne’s face flushed in anger when she realized that Caroline’s husband had talked back at her. Am I not?” “I’m sure you know the answer to that question.” Kirk looked at Daphne sullenly. Daphne’s heart skipped a beat at that. Then, she remembered that Caroline’s husband was just an ordinary person. He didn’t have the power or the chance to be on the same level as Eddy’s second uncle, so she became confident and bold Daphne yelled, “Of course I do! You, on the other hand, have been aggressive and pushy. Anyone else would think you’re my husband instead.” She sneered, “I want to see who you actually are! How dare you talk to me like that?” As she spoke, she lunged forward and pulled Kirk’s mask from his face. Kirk wanted to stop her, but it was already too late. His true face was exposed to everyone present. When Daphne saw Kirk’s face, her expression shifted. She stammered, “M–Mr. …‘ Kirk grabbed her neck and growled, “That’s right. I’m Kirk, Caroline’s husband.” Fear appeared on Daphne’s flushed face. Her mouth was open, but she couldn’t utter a single word. “You must be the mysterious person.” Kirk glared at Daphne. “You’ve really gone to great lengths to destroy our relationship.” Today’s Bonus Offer
