After that, Thomas introduced Sean in front of everyone. “This is my uncle’s son’s…”
Someone asked, “Is this Mr. Eddy’s second uncle? I didn’t expect him to look so young and handsome!”
“Yeah! He’s really handsome, graceful, and elegant. I wonder if he’s married yet.
“Oh my God, I can’t believe a handsome man like him actually exists!”
Their discussions began to spread throughout the room.
Caroline glanced at Gwen, who was gritting her teeth, and whispered, “Are you jealous, Gwen?”
“Jealous? Why the hell would I be jealous?” Gwen spat.
Caroline was rendered speechless by her answer.
Gwen, who had noticed the change in her attitude, quickly added, “I’m angry because I don’t know why he came here instead of Eddy’s second uncle.”
“I’m not sure about that either.”
At this time, everyone else learned from Eddy that the person before them wasn’t the president of SY Group but his good friend.
“I apologize for the misunderstanding,” Sean said with a smile. His gaze naturally swept past the crowd and landed on Gwen.
“I’m here on behalf of my friend, and I believe I should explain the situation. Mr. Morrison isn’t here for such a big occasion because he’s stuck in Newonia. He asked me to apologize to you on his behalf.”
Then, Sean gave Thomas a solemn nod. Right now, Thomas couldn’t tell whether Sean was telling the truth, but he still had to maintain pleasantries.
“You’re too kind. I know he wishes to be here, but things happen. There’s nothing we can do about that.”
“Thank you for understanding, sir.” Sean exchanged a few more pleasantries with Thormas before being guided to the seat that belonged to Kirk.
The funeral ended soon after Sean’s arrival. Then, everyone left and headed to the hotel.
On the way, Gwen stopped Sean. She questioned, “What are you doing here instead of him?”
When Sean saw Gwen, he said with a smile, “Like I said, my friend is stuck in Newonia, and he couldn’t come back.”
Gwen turned back and asked Caroline, “Do you believe this nonsense, Carol?”
Caroline said, “I think he’s telling the truth. Grandpa’s passing is such a major thing. He would definitely attend the funeral if he wasn’t caught up in something.”
When Sean heard her words, he wanted to praise her for understanding her husband well. She was right. Kirk hadn’t attended the funeral because he hadn’t had a choice.
After all, Jude was Kirk’s uncle, so it would be inexcusable for him not to attend his funeral. However, if he did, his identity would be exposed.
At such a crucial time, Kirk had no choice but to have Sean step in for him.
Gwen still thought this was too much of a coincidence. However, she had no proof to say otherwise, so she could only frown and enter the hotel with Caroline.
Caroline had arranged the guests‘ seating herself, so she had arranged for her and Gwen to be in a quiet corner.
However, as soon as they arrived at their seats, people occasionally greeted her with flattery she had never seen for a long time.
Caroline wasn’t used to it before, but now she was calm and composed.
After seeing off a group of guests, Caroline was about to take her seat when Gwen tugged at the corner of her clothes. She warned, “Watch out.”
Caroline looked over in confusion and saw the newcomers, Asher and Aurora.
“They’re clearly up to no good,
Gwen muttered, “You’d better be careful.”
Caroline nodded slightly at Gwen’s warning.
In just a short while, the two had arrived before Caroline. Caroline composed herself, watching
