However, Asher didn’t say anything mean to Caroline. Instead, he was very friendly. “Long time, no see, Caroline How have you been? I heard you’re now Evans Group’s CEO. I’m really happy for you.”
Caroline looked at Gwen hesitantly Gwen was also surprised by Asher’s attitude. However, they didn’t let their guard down After all, Aurora was standing behind Asher, eyeing them warily.
Although Gwen had never clashed with Aurora, the actress had a well–known reputation among the upper class. If anyone dared to upset her, she would tear them apart
However, Aurora dropped her arrogant and obnoxious attitude and greeted Caroline with a smile, saying, “Hello, Caroline‘
Asher glanced back and forth between them. “Do you know each other?”
Aurora answered naturally, “Yeah, we had a little misunderstanding before, so we got off the wrong foot.”
Asher raised an eyebrow and asked, “A misunderstanding? What kind of misunderstanding?”
Caroline and Gwen weren’t fools They could tell that the couple was putting on an act. However, they didn’t interrupt them either. They simply watched them ramble on in silence.
As expected of an actress, Aurora told Asher what happened that day with an emotional attitude.
However, she put all the blame on her assistant, painting herself as an innocent bystander who got implicated by accident.
Gwen couldn’t help but want to roll her eyes as she listened to her words. Meanwhile, Caroline remained neutral, simply letting Aurora babble on.
After Aurora was done, Asher said, after a moment’s thought, “So your assistant went too far.”
“Yeah. Later on, I realized I was wrong, so I fired her. Although she has worked with me for years and we were close, it’s just not right.”
Asher looked at Caroline. He asked, “Caroline, are you happy with her decision? If not, we can do what you want instead.”
Caroline said with a smile, “It’s been a long time since that happened. I would have forgotten about it if you hadn’t mentioned it now.
Asher smiled awkwardly. “It’s our fault for bringing up the past. But you can let us know if you’re unhappy with anything.
“In any case, the Evans family was one of the big four families. We will stand up for you if someone messes with you.”
“Thank you. I think your arrangements are good enough, so we should let this issue go,” Caroline suggested.
Then, she raised her glass. “Cheers.” She was subtly asking them to leave.
Understanding her intentions, Asher could only drink with Caroline before pulling Aurora away.
After they left, Gwen couldn’t resist asking, “God, what’s up with the two of them?”
She could understand Asher’s politeness. After all, he was just making small talk. People like them knew best about maintaining superficial relationships.
However, Gwen couldn’t understand Aurora’s reason for being polite.
Caroline glanced at Aurora and shook her head.
“Did she come here to curry favor with you because she knew you were Marietta’s goddaughter?” The more Gwen thought about this possibility, the more likely she felt it was possible.
Although Aurora was a world–renowned individual, everyone knew how much she wanted to be part of Marietta’s plays.
Everyone claimed that an actor’s life could only be complete when they played a part in Marietta’s work.
These claims might sound exaggerated, but many actresses were proud to be part of Marietta’s plays.
Thinking of this, Gwen pursed her lips. She hugged Caroline’s shoulders and nuzzled against her.” What should I do, Carol? I’m so jealous.”
Caroline gently pressed her fingers against Gwen’s forehead to stop her. “Be careful. If you keep nuzzling yourself against me, Kirk will get jealous.”
