Jude’s eyes widened at Simon’s words. “Simon, what proof do you have for that theory of yours?”
Simon hurriedly stepped forward and rubbed Jude’s back. “Sir, please calm down. I’m just making a guess. I don’t have any proof.”
Jude calmed down slightly at his words. “Then tell me, what made you think this way?”
Simon explained, “Sir, don’t you think it’s weird? Ms. Evans had zero help behind the scenes. There’s no way she could have beaten Evanson Corp, a company that Morrison Corp funded, at a complete disadvantage.”
He continued, “Also, Mr. Kirk and Ms. Dawson said they lived together, but Mr. Kirk rarely goes to her house.
“So where does he live when he is in Easton? Why can’t we find any information about him? The most suspicious thing was that Marietta Weiss came to Easton to cast auditions for Mr. Kirk’s sake.
“Logically speaking, since Ms. Dawson is Mr. Kirk’s wife, she would have definitely gotten the lead
“However, Sonia, someone Ms. Evans values, ended up getting it instead. Since we can’t find
anything about Ms. Evans‘ husband and Mr. Kirk, he could be …” Simon explained as he looked at Jude’s expression.
Jude frowned, remaining silent. After five minutes, he ordered, “If that’s the case, go and investigate Evans Group’s current funds. See if any outside finances are coming in.
“Also, find out the casting situation from the casting team. If Kirk is really Carrie’s husband, he’ll definitely leave behind some clues.”
“By the way, we can’t let our guard down around Daphne. If we take a two–pronged approach, we may find something unexpected.”
“Yes, sir.” Simon left the room.
When Kirk arrived at Caroline’s apartment building, he saw Sean’s car parked downstairs. He got
“Why not? I’m the reason you both reconciled, after all.”
Kirk took a few steps forward. “Are you here to see Gwen?”
Sean chuckled. “There’s no need to point out the obvious. Besides, I was the one who skillfully
manipulated Caroline when she called you on the phone back then.”
Kirk looked back at him.
Sean hurriedly said with a smile, “All right, sure. You recorded your lines in advance so I could
play them on the call.
“Even so, I should be rewarded for my efforts, so don’t be so petty. You already got your girl back
while I’m all alone.”
Kirk had recorded his voice in advance for the phone call back then. Sean really admired Kirk’s
He really knew Caroline well, to the point where he could guess what she would say. Otherwise,
everything wouldn’t have gone so smoothly.
Kirk walked to the elevator. “How are you sure that Caroline invited Gwen?”
Sean froze. “I’m sure she’ll invite her. You two have made up. There’s no way Gwen wouldn’t show
up for such a big thing.”
Kirk looked at him silently.
Sean panicked immediately. He asked anxiously, “Don’t tell me she isn’t coming.”
“Don’t you feel stupid for asking that right now?”
Sean grabbed Kirk’s arm. “Kirk, you have to help me out. I can’t see Gwen at all right now.”
The elevator had already arrived at Caroline’s floor while they talked.
Kirk knocked on Caroline’s door. “There’s nothing I can do.”
“I’m sure there is!” As soon as Sean finished speaking, the door opened.
When Caroline saw Sean standing outside the door, she said in surprise, “You’re here, Sean.”
