Caroline raised Dolly’s chin. “Tell me, why did you put on that act? And who ordered you to do that?
“I–I don’t know. I don’t know anything.” Dolly shook her head, trying to break free from Caroline’s
However, she immediately felt immense pain in her jaw. Caroline’s strength was utterly unlike that of a woman.
“How about now?” Caroline glared at Dolly. The look in her eyes was terrifying.
Somehow, Dolly noticed that she had the same intimidating air as Kirk. She couldn’t resist looking up at Kirk.
Kirk’s eyes were cold as they followed Caroline’s movements from his spot a distance away. He wasn’t looking at her at all. It was as if he didn’t know her. But she was Avery’s friend!
Moreover, she was an actress whose appearance was top–notch. She couldn’t believe Kirk didn’t remember her at all.
Before Dolly could continue her internal rants, she felt another wave of pain in her jaw. She took a breath. ““I–I’ll talk! I–It was…”
Everyone looked over at Dolly, including the nonchalant Kirk. His eyes were heavy and
emotionless, but a hint of killing intent was hidden in that gaze.
Dolly shivered at the sight and braced herself. “I–I don’t know what her name is.
“She transferred a sum of money to me and ordered me to do what she asked, including… acting
out a scene and telling you those words. She ordered me to do all of that.”
“She transferred money to you?” Caroline let go of Dolly’s jaw.
“Do you know what her account number is?”
“I never checked, so I don’t know.”
Charles then volunteered himself. “I’ll go ahead and investigate it, madam.”
Caroline turned back to look at Charles, her gaze filled with distrust.
Charles rubbed his nose awkwardly.
“The bank provides the transfer records “He was implying he couldn’t make a fake even if he wanted to.
Caroline thought for a moment and felt it made sense, so she said, “How long do you need?”
“Just a few minutes if they’re quick.”
“We’ll wait for you here.”
“Okay,” Charles said, and then he left the warehouse.
Caroline and the rest remained in the warehouse. Dolly secretly glanced at Kirk, finally getting a chance to breathe after Charles left. But she was met with Kirk’s cold glare, and she lowered her head in fright.
Soon, Charles returned. He handed the phone to Caroline and explained, “Here’s what I found. The account that transferred the money to this woman belongs to Daphne.”
Dolly was stunned when she heard the name. Everything she had just said was what Avery had told her to say before she came here.
Avery had said that she just needed to follow her instructions if she ever met Kirk, and everything
would be fine.
Therefore, she was still confused when she heard that the money was transferred from Daphne’s account. Could this Daphne be the actress who had participated in the audition today?
Contrary to Dolly’s uncertainty, Caroline was relieved.
It seemed that Daphne was behind all this. She was the one who instigated Dolly behind the scenes, which led her to investigate Kirk’s polygamy abroad.
Since Kirk couldn’t tell her the truth because of the non–disclosure agreement, this incident had torn them apart.
In addition to the unpleasant situation at the bridal boutique that day, there was likely another reason Daphne had done this.
She probably thought that if Kirk annulled the marriage with her, she could register her marriage with the actual president of SY Group, Eddy’s second uncle.
In this way, it didn’t matter if she ended up divorcing Eddy’s second uncle. She would end up
owning half of the property that belonged to him
After thinking about it this way, everything made sense to Caroline now.
