When it came down to it, Caroline wanted to experience the kind of joy that came from having the
support of her parents. She knew that Marietta would praise her for her taste when she met Kirk.
Seeing Caroline duck her head, Kirk felt a twist in his heart. He blurted out, “You want me to meet
These words sounded extremely familiar. So much so that Caroline instinctually denied it. “No, no.
It’s all up to you.”
Caroline didn’t want Kirk to do something he didn’t like because of her.
Feeling helpless, Kirk looked adoringly at Caroline.
“Didn’t you say that Marietta Weiss is a renowned playwright? We might have to work with her in
the future, too. It wouldn’t be a bad thing to meet her, right?”
Caroline’s eyebrows flew upward. “We’re going to work with her?”
She didn’t dare to imagine it.
Kirk laughed. “Of course. Maybe we will still be working on Marietta’s works.”
Caroline ran out of the bathroom and threw her arms around Kirk’s neck. “Honey, how are you so
Caroline’s hair was wet and dripping. Instantly, Kirk’s shirt turned damp too. It showed his defined
muscles through the material.
Kirk’s voice went husky. “Darling, are you doing this on purpose?”
Found out, Caroline let out a laugh. Before Kirk could make a move, she disappeared into the
bathroom and smoothly locked the door.
Kirk looked at the locked door and shook his head helplessly. Why was it that his wife was always
so silly when it came to him?
Though the door was locked, Caroline couldn’t stay in there forever. She would have to put out the
fire that she set herself.
Thinking about how Marietta would be coming into their home in a few days, Kirk felt the
amusement on his face disappear without a trace. He took out his phone and called Charles.
“Contact Marietta Weiss. Tell her I want to see her.”
Although Charles was curious, he didn’t ask too many questions. As a good employee, all he had to
do was complete the tasks given by his superior successfully.
Cheryl woke up early on Saturday morning.
After getting home last night, she hadn’t slept much. She hadn’t been able to stop thinking about
the date today.
She picked up the dress she had bought yesterday and placed it before herself. Someone at the
store had tailored the dress based on Cheryl’s figure and the shape of her face.
Yesterday, she had already gotten a small little surprise at the store.
In the past, the clothes she had worn either made her look dowdy or childish. However, this dress
brought out the inner version of her without limit, making her look less plain.
Joyfully, Cheryl changed into the outfit and looked at herself shyly in the mirror. Her cheeks were
heating up. She wondered how Jack would react when he saw her like this.
She waited and waited. Finally, night came.
Before leaving her place, Cheryl once again checked her makeup.
Only when she was sure that everything looked fine that did she head out. She was going to take
the subway to reach the spot for the date.
For some reason, Cheryl kept feeling as if countless people were staring at her as she went. When
she arrived, she hurried out and rushed to her destination.
Because she was going too fast, Cheryl accidentally bumped into someone at the entrance. She
was about to apologize when the other person walked right past her.
Finding it strange, Cheryl looked up. However, when she saw the woman’s features clearly, she
was taken aback.
That was Daphne Dawson!
Jane had gone to jail, but Daphne was all fine.
Also, who was that man next to her? Could it be… Eddy’s second uncle?
