“Is that so?” Marietta’s eyes lit up at the mention of handsome men.
“I’m starting to look forward to Wednesday’s date.”
Caroline was confounded as she watched Cheryl and Marietta.
Right then, in the president’s office of SY Group’s Easton headquarters, Kirk was grimly looking at
Daphne on the screen.
After settling his work, he had started thinking about how to deal with Daphne He couldn’t drag
things out any longer.
Charles had not only found tiny, unnoticeable surveillance devices in Daphne’s room, but also that
Simon was searching for photos of Kirk
These two matters made Kirk feel rushed to make a decision as soon as possible.
He narrowed his eyes as he walked to the floor–to–ceiling window His gaze was conflicted as he
looked out the window at the traffic below.
He had to make Daphne disappear. Not just that–she had to disappear without a trace. There was
no way Caroline could ever find out about this.
Kirk’s eyebrows were tightly furrowed. After a long time, he relaxed. He smoothly turned and
“Get over here.”
After getting the phone call, Charles arrived in the office not half a minute later.
“Go and tell Daphne something. I will spare her life because we used to be fake married. However,
if she dares to ever harm Carrie again, I’ll make sure she pays for it.”
Charles looked at Kirk, not understanding what was going on.
Based on what he knew of Kirk, he wasn’t the kind of person who would take such associations
into account. When he did, it usually meant that he had the intent to kill.
Thinking of this, Charles felt a shiver run down his spine.
However, he couldn’t blame Kirk for being so ruthless. Kirk had warned Daphne many times, but
she had insisted on doing her own thing anyway. Now, she was going to reap what she had sown.
“Alright. I understand.”
Kirk looked at Charles and said, “Keep a close eye on her.”
After saying this, Charles left the office and rushed to Daphne’s home.
After being confined at home for so many days, Daphne hadn’t eaten or slept well. As a result, she had lost a lot of weight. Seeing how thin she was, Charles felt that she deserved it, but he also pitied her.
Actually, she didn’t have to end up this way. But she had been the one to cause trouble.
“Ms. Dawson,” Charles announced expressionlessly, “from now on, you have your freedom.
“Mr. Kirk said that he hopes you will remember something. That is, if you dare to ever hurt the madam again, you should be prepared to lose your life!”
Daphne slowly raised her head and looked at Charles in disbelief. “I–I’m really going to be okay?”
It had been too long since she had spoken. When she opened her mouth, it felt like she had sand stuck in her throat.
Charles nodded shallowly.
Daphne staggered as she stood up. Her eyes were burning with small flames, slowly lighting up with hope.
Charles looked at her with sympathy in his eyes. Daphne didn’t even know that she was about to die.
