“I told you.”
Kirk calmly analyzed the situation. “My situation is different from yours. Caroline and I both have
the courage to face the uncertain future, but Gwen doesn’t.
“The trauma of her family life has caused her so much harm that she doesn’t believe in love. How
could someone who doesn’t believe in love embrace her feelings?”
“Didn’t you not believe in love too?”
Kirk answered, “Caroline was the one who made me believe in that feeling.”
“How did she convince you?”
For a moment, Kirk couldn’t find an answer to Sean’s question.
He and Caroline had been through many ordeals. These ordeals were like chains that bound them together and made their relationship stronger.
However, he had no idea when he had started to believe in love.
“There’s no point trying to duplicate our situation. There’s only one way to convince Gwen: let her undergo therapy to get rid of the fear she feels.
“But I’m not sure when or if she’ll get over her fear. So, as a friend, I advise you to give up.”
The hope in Sean’s eyes slowly faded away. “Do I really have to give up?”
Kirk remained silent. He could only give a suggestion. The rest was up to him.
Sean sat on the couch and said dejectedly, “I really don’t want to.”
This was the first time he had liked someone so much, even more than medicine.
Kirk looked at Sean silently and didn’t say a word.
Meanwhile, Daphne heard the doorbell in her apartment and froze. She thought she was hearing, things.
Ever since Charles had brought her home a few days ago, she had been stuck at home and wasn’t
Her manager only came to see her once and then hurriedly left. She had no idea what was going
As the doorbell rang, Daphne realized that the visitor was probably Jane. After talking to the
mysterious woman on the phone, she had called Jane.
However, Jane had been abroad at the time, so Daphne could only stay put and wait.
Thinking it might be Jane, Daphne’s desolate eyes lit up with hope. She didn’t even wear her shoes as she dashed to the door and opened it.
When she saw Jane at the door, she couldn’t hold back her emotions anymore and hugged her.
Jane patted Daphne’s head and comforted her. “I already know that Caroline’s actress stole your
role. There, there. Don’t cry. Let’s talk inside.”
With Jane’s help, Daphne returned to the living room. Her body was still shaking when she sat on
the couch, not because her role had been stolen, but because…
She really wanted to tell Jane that Kirk was Caroline’s husband, but she couldn’t.
She knew all too well how snobbish people could be. If Jane found out that Caroline was Kirk’s real wife, she would abandon her and curry favor with Caroline instead.
It didn’t matter if Caroline had made her daughter go insane.
“You have to help me, Mrs. Collins!” Daphne begged with tears in her eyes, trying to sell her misery.
“Caroline didn’t just take away my role to challenge me. She’s also trying to mess with the Collins family. Mrs. Collins, we can’t just leave her be!”
Jane asked, “What do you want to do?”
“I want to kill her!” Daphne raised her head, looking at Jane with a stern look.
“Mrs. Collins, all our troubles will be gone if she’s dead.”
