BOGUS BILLIONAIRE - Season 2 Episode 14
Feeling a headache, Sean bit the bullet and said, “He goes by so many names that I can’t
remember his actual one”
“What name does he go by now? Caroline asked.
“Matthew,” Sean answered.
Then, he looked at Kirk smugly, raising an eyebrow.
He was telling the truth, Matthew was one of Kirk’s aliases.
“Matthew Caroline whispered in a clear voice.
Kirk’s heart skipped a beat when he heard her whisper his name. He looked at Caroline’s plump lips, feeling the urge to kiss her.
“Here’s the bread. The waiter put the plate of bread on the table, blocking Kirk’s view. When the waiter left, Caroline had already begun talking to Gwen about Layla.
“She must be so pissed right now! I’m happy just thinking about it!” Gwen took a bite of her bread.
“It’s so satisfying to see her suffer! If Layla had gotten the job, she would’ve acted all high and mighty, showing it off to you.”
Sean also took a slice of bread. He asked curiously, “Is Layla Eddy’s lover?”
“Oh, you know her too?” Gwen asked.
“I’ve been studying her medical records,” Sean explained. He chewed his bread slowly, in stark contrast to Gwen, who was gobbling her bread down.
“Why do you need to study them?” Caroline wasn’t familiar with medicine, so she didn’t understand. “Is there a problem?”
Sean explained, “Yeah, her records were normal for a few days Logically speaking, this shouldn’t even be happening.” (@
“I told you there was something fishy about her illness.” Gwen commented, “If you keep studying those records, I’m sure you’ll be able to find something.”
Sean looked at Gwen with a hint of tenderness. “You’re not even a doctor. How can you tell?”
i may not be a doctor, but I’m a woman before this, whenever Carol and Eddy’s wedding was back
on the agenda, layla would get seriously ill and he hospitalized
This time was even more outrageous because she apparently needs a kidney transplant
Gwen paused momentarily, then continued, “Besides, I’ve never seen a patient dying of an illness
running about and scheming against people. Sometimes, I genuinely think that she’s faking it!”
Sean’s smile froze, and a thought crossed his mind in the blink of an eye
He grabbed Gwen’s hand excitedly. He yelled, “You’re a genius, Gwent
His actions took Gwen aback After a while, she, usually a flirt, blushed when she realized that
Sean was holding her hand tightly “Let go of my hand!”
An Caroline watched from the sidelines, she couldn’t help raising her brows
When Sean realized what he’d done, he quickly let go of Gwen’s hand and apologized. “I’m sorry. I
got too excited. I never figured out why her records were normal. If she’s really faking her illness,
everything would make sense.”
Gwen was shocked. “1–I was just rambling…”
Sean waved his hand. “I’m just speculating as well. If we want to find out whether she’s faking her
illness, she just needs a thorough checkup.”
Then, he looked at Kirk.
Kirk tapped his fingers on the table and asked Caroline, “Do you think it’s necessary?”
When Caroline heard his question, she put down her drink and said, “Yeah. I also want to know if
she’s faking her illness.”
“All right.” Sean flexed his muscles, feeling eager. “I’ll arrange a thorough checkup for her when I
Then, they chatted about anything and everything. Gwen and Sean were the ones talking. Caroline
agreed with their words from time to time, while Kirk didn’t talk much.
Noticing the clean table and untouched glass of water in front of Kirk, she got up. “Go ahead and
keep talking. I’m going to buy something.”
“I’ll go with you.” Gwen and Kirk spoke, both standing up at the same time.
Amused, Caroline looked at them and smiled. “I’m not a child I’m just going to the convenience
store across the street.”
111 go with you too Getting Sean’s signal, Gwen took Caroline’s hand and pouted “Come on, Carol
Don’t leave me behind”
Caroline relented, saying. “Fine, let’s go.”
Then, they left Kirk behind
“Quit staring at them.” Sean waved his hand in front of Kirk. “I have something to ask you.‘”
Kirk responded half–heartedly, his gaze still fixed on Caroline.
Sen asked, “Are you seeing another woman?”
Kirk frowned “Get some help. You’re obviously delirious.”
“Caroline said it herself” Sean said sternly, “Be honest with me.”
Kirk’s expression was sullen “Caroline told you?”
“Not to me, but to Gwen. Gwen said that Caroline saw you with another woman, and she also found lipstick in your pocket,” Sean explained.
“Did she really say that?”
“Of course. Why would I lie to you?”
Sean said, “Isn’t she giving you the cold shoulder because of this? Kirk, you’d better think this through. Do you want Caroline or that woman you’re seeing?”
Kirk said irritatedly, “I’m not seeing anyone else!”
“Really?” Sean asked doubtfully.
Kirk looked at him coldly.
Sean shrank back. He said, “If you aren’t seeing anyone else, it inust be a misunderstanding. Everything will be fine after you talk things through.”
Kirk remained seated in his chair, motionless. The lights shone on his face, casting shadows over his facial features.
