When she got to that point, Gwen laughed. “It was better in the past when I would dump them
after I got them
“I didn’t have to worry about the guy cheating at all. As long as we break up fast, they won’t get to
cheat on me.”
Caroline smiled as she looked at Gwen, but it didn’t reach her eyes. Gwen was right. Love was
really quite tiring. One needed to nurture love with a lot of effort so that it could last forever.
“What about you?” Gwen asked, turning her head toward Caroline.
The smile was still on Caroline’s face, but now her gaze drifted. “I … Do you remember I told you I
“The husband was a murderer, but the wife only found out when the police came to their door …”
Gwen sat up. “You mean

“What exactly happened?”
Caroline shook her head and looked at the time. “I’m not sure yet. I still have to wait…”
Caroline just had to wait a little more–just two hours and a bit more. Then, the answer would be
“I think you can ask Quentin for help with your problem.” Caroline turned the topic back to Gwen’s

“It doesn’t matter anymore if I’m innocent. In any case, this way, I can rest for a while. At worst, I’ll
go home and inherit the family business.
“But just the thought that it was the old man who built the business makes me feel dirty.”

Carcaine watched Gwen silently Without saying anything more, she walked to the door and
changed into her shoes
Then, she asked, “Why don’t you come to my company?”
“No, thanks I can take care of myself at home” Gwen pushed Caroline out the door.
“Hurry up and go to work. Don’t worry about me. Go make money and support me in the future.”
Hearing the words “support me, Caroline’s heart trembled. Kirk had seemed to say the same
words before. When Caroline thought of him, her eyes dimmed.
Caroline shook her head, dispelling Kirk’s lingering image from her brain.
Once she got the information from Marina, she would be free from this agony. Whether or not it
was true, she would put an end to things.
Once she left Gwen’s apartment, Caroline rushed straight to the company. Once she went inside,
she saw Cheryl trying to tell her something with her eyes.
“Caroline, guess who came?
“Who?” Caroline asked.
“Mr. Sorkin!” Cheryl forced her excited voice down.
“He’s in your office waiting for you right now! He said he’s here to sign a contract. Caroline, is Mr.
Sorkin investing in our company?”
Although the Sorkin family couldn’t compare with the Morrison family, it would make a great
impact on Evans Group’s unstable situation if they were to invest.
Caroline paused in her footsteps as she looked toward the door not far away. “Adrian is inside?”
“That’s right.” Cheryl was about to push the door open, but Caroline stopped her.
“Hold on.” What happened yesterday really gave Caroline a headache.
“I… Mr. Sorkin is here to sign a contract…”
Before she could finish speaking, the door was opened from the inside.
Caroline looked at Adrián standing before her and found herself unable to escape. She forced a
smile and said, “Mr Sorkin …”
“Sonia Norman will be our brand ambassador. Later, you will have to get into contact with her manager and use the company’s official social media to announce the news.”
Cheryl looked at Sonia’s information and said, “This actress doesn’t seem to be very popular.”
“Yes,” Caroline replied.
“But she has a new webseries airing soon. I’ve watched it. It might only have a small budget, but the story and costumes are decent.
“I can’t be sure that it will be a hit, but I think it will be quite popular. Sonia did especially well with her acting. She stands out in a small–budget webseries like this. She will be noticed by everyone.”
Listening to all of Caroline’s logical points, Cheryl couldn’t help but say, “Caroline, what if … just what if … this webseries fails? Then wouldn’t our 800 thousand dollars go to waste?”
