Both Caroline and Eddy fell silent. None of them took the initiative to speak in the car. To be honest, she found the silence rather pleasant.
Unfortunately for her, Eddy chose to break the silence by saying, “Don’t take what Grandpa said to
Confused, Caroline turned to look at him. “What are you talking about?”
Eddy knitted his brows and said, “When he said he wanted you and your husband to live a good life together.”
Straightening her back, she told him, “Are you going to tell me to get a divorce then? Who are you to say those words? How I live my life is none of your business!”
Eddy opened his mouth to retort, but in the end, all he could say was, “He’s not the one for you.”
“How is he not the one for me?” Caroline snapped.
She could turn a blind eye if they were talking about something else, but not when it concerned Kirk.
“I don’t believe there’s any man who’s more deserving of me than him,” she said.
“Have you heard of soulmates before? He’s my soulmate. All he needs is just a glance to know what I’m thinking.”
Eddy exhaled slowly, but the weight on his heart didn’t diminish. It only served to trouble him more. He recalled the day he had spoken to Kirk.
Kirk said that Eddy yearned for Caroline simply because he couldn’t have her.
Still, hearing her compliment her husband made Eddy feel uneasy.
Eddy didn’t want her to continue praising that man. Instead, he wanted to be the person she spoke about. His grip on the steering wheel loosened when he realized what he was hoping for.
Did he just think of becoming her husband?
No, no, no! That definitely wasn’t what he was thinking.
However, even after he had calmed down, the same thought still occupied his mind. He took a
Caroline glanced strangely at him. He said nothing for quite some time, so she thought she had finally managed to persuade him.
Letting out a sigh, she said, “I hope that you won’t talk badly about him in front of me in the future. You don’t know him at all, so you don’t have the right to judge him.
“We won’t meet each other anymore, anyway.”
Eddy’s heart throbbed at her words, and his mood turned foul. “What now? Are you thinking of leaving Earth then?” His tone was icy.
Caroline glanced at him and smiled. “I don’t want Layla to look for me every other day.”
Layla had confronted her because Eddy had visited her at the hospital. Surely, Layla would burn Evans Group down if she found out that he had driven Caroline home.
It wasn’t that Caroline feared Layla. It was just that she had something more important to handle now. She wanted to turn Evans Group into a more powerful business as soon as possible.
She didn’t wish Evans Group to remain a small business. That wasn’t what she’d had in mind when she had taken over the company.
She wanted to use the company as a springboard to restore the Evans‘ name to its former glory.
That way, Kirk wouldn’t have to work under Eddy’s second uncle anymore or do anything against his will. Like getting registered on his behalf.
“Layla gave you trouble?”
