In a restaurant, Gwen’s mouth was open in shock from hearing Caroline explain the whole story
A–Are you for real?”
“T–That’s just absurd. Do you believe it, Carol?”
Caroline looked down at the tableware in front of her. “It is absurd. I didn’t believe it at first, but
various signs are pointing to it being true.”
Gwen said, “I still find it weird that Eddy’s second uncle asked someone to make a fake certificate.
“However, the minds of rich people aren’t something we ordinary people can understand Maybe he did ask Kirk and Daphne to register their marriage to make a fake certificate.”
She paused, then continued, “After all, if he registered the marriage himself, he would lose half of his property if they divorced.
“So what’s your next move? Are you going to forgive Kirk and pretend this incident never happened, or
Caroline picked up her fork and poked at the food on her plate. “I don’t know either. That’s why I invited you here.”
Gwen laughed. “Carol, you’re grasping at straws here. I can’t believe you’re asking me this question.”
Caroline laughed along with her. “Perhaps you can see things from a different perspective.”
“All right. Since you trust me so much, I’ll tell you what I think.”
Gwen sat up straight. “First of all, I think Kirk really loves you. Do you agree with that?”
Caroline nodded. This fact was irrefutable.
“Okay, since he loves you and you love him, you should forgive him. After all, he’s just a regular employee listening to his superior’s orders.
“He wasn’t even aware that his marriage had been registered. It’s understandable that he didn’t tell you.
“All of this happened because his father agreed to it. You just need to get Kirk to keep a close eye
on his father.”
Caroline looked down, remaining silent
Gwen asked, “What’s wrong? Am I wrong?”
“No” Caroline shook her head
“It seems all of this has nothing to do with Kirk. He’s innocent.”
“So… Are you going to forgive him?” Gwen asked with a small smile.
Caroline put down her fork and was silent for a moment. Then, she looked at Gwen with some
confusion “Gwen, do you think I’m being too lenient if I just forgive him like this?”
Gwen thought for a while and smiled. “No way. Look, you said it yourself. He’s blameless in all of
this. Why shouldn’t you forgive him if he’s innocent?
Caroline stared at Gwen silently.
Gwen asked, “What’s wrong? Did I say something wrong again?”
“No. You made an excellent point. Since he’s innocent, there’s no reason for me not to forgive him. Sean is also innocent, so why do you-”
“Come on, Carol! Whose side are you on? Why do you seize every opportunity to speak up for Sean? “Gwen smiled as she spoke.
Caroline also smiled. “Seriously, you and Sean-”
“Stop! We’re in different situations. You’re a brave woman, while I’m just a coward. This is the power of a broken family’s influence. Maybe I’ll never fall in love again in my life.”
Caroline watched Gwen talk and stopped trying to persuade her. One had to experience the relationship personally to know what it was like.
After their meal, Caroline planned to go to the marketplace.
Gwen laughed and joked, “Are you making food for Kirk so soon? I thought you would give him the cold shoulder for a while longer.”
Caroline glanced at her and questioned, “How are you so sure I’m cooking for Kirk? It’s possible
“But you just ate
Gwen’s words made Caroline speechless.
The two women smiled at each other. Then, Gwen drove away in her car.
As Caroline watched Gwen’s car disappear into the distance, she sighed softly. After a moment, she lowered her head and took out her phone. She hesitated for a moment before sending Kirk a
