The next second, Caroline’s car door was opened, and she felt a gust of wind. She raised her heavy head and vaguely saw Layla’s unsightly face.
“Come out here, you bitch!”
The sharp voice allowed Caroline to confirm that it belonged to Layla. She felt her scalp being pulled, which made her consciousness slowly return. In pain, she looked up at Layla coldly.
Layla’s heart stopped when she saw Caroline glare, but she said maliciously, “What are you glaring at? No one usually passes by here, so don’t expect anyone to come and save you.
“You fucking bitch! How dare you take advantage of Grandpa’s death to make Ed marry you? You’d really do anything to join the Morrisons, won’t you?”
Caroline was forced to raise her head, but the coldness in her eyes didn’t disappear. “You’re absolutely useless, Layla.”
“What did you say?” Layla was pissed.
Caroline retorted, “Am I wrong? Do you really think I’m the reason you haven’t married Eddy yet?
“Remember, I’m already married. Since Eddy would rather be with a married woman than you, have you ever considered that you’re the problem here?
“Even if you kill me, another person will come into the picture, and you’ll never gain Eddy’s favor.”
Caroline’s words hit the nail on the head. Layla raised her hand to hit Caroline.
At the same time, Caroline took advantage of Layla loosening her grip and slammed into her with
all her strength.
Layla was caught off guard by her attack, and she felt herself being pushed back before she
managed to hold Caroline’s head
Unable to move, Caroline took a trembling breath. Her head was dizzy, and she felt like she could
At this moment, she saw two huge beams of light shining at them. Seeing someone arrive, Layla
had no choice but to push Caroline away and flee angrily.
Caroline staggered backward, and just when she thought she would fall to the ground, a large pair of hands held her steady.
“Thank you.” Caroline turned around and was slightly shocked to see Asher. Then, her eyes landed on Aurora, who had just gotten out of the car and rushed over.
Caroline calmly avoided Asher’s grip and thanked him again. “Thank you.
“It’s no trouble at all.” Asher withdrew his hands and asked curiously, “Did you get into an accident?”
“Do I need to call the police for you?” The person who spoke was none other than Aurora. She had already walked over and looked at Caroline worriedly.
Even though Aurora had worked hard to feign her concern, Caroline could still tell it was fake. ” Thank you, but I can call them myself.”
“Then, let us take you home,” Aurora suggested.
Caroline thought momentarily and declined, “No, it’s okay.
After being rejected repeatedly, Aurora looked at Asher, discouraged. Asher said, “I think it’s safer to call a cab for Caroline and take her to the hospital.”
Asher’s suggestion wasn’t a bad one. If Caroline went straight home, Kirk would definitely be worried. So she agreed, “Okay.”
Asher helped Caroline call a cab. After Caroline got in the car and left, Aurora immediately dropped her pretense of concern.
“Who does she think she is? No one would even suck up to her if she wasn’t Marietta’s goddaughter!”
“All right, enough of that,” Asher comforted.
“I already told you first impressions are very important. Your assistant had upset her when you first met. It would be impossible for anyone not to have a bad impression of you.
But you have plenty of time to wow her. You managed to win me over, so why are you worried
about a small fry like her?”
