Chapter 72 Breaking News (A woman resembling the wife of GK Pictures’s CEO has an affair with an actor)
The headline caught his eye, which reddened with a murderous look inside. Below the headline was several pictures, the first few of which showed the snowy ground outside the villa as the background, and in the picture, a young man, ostensibly Howard, was carrying Kisa in his arms. The last picture was a comparison of two photos: Kisa’s current state versus her look from five years ago. The two photos had been deliberately zoomed in, and those two pairs of eyebrows looked almost identical.
Seeing the article in front of him, Gilbert tore up the paper, his handsome face grave. “Davian! “he called out.
Davian came rushing in, looking a little groggy, obviously having just woken up. Gilbert glared at him. “I’m surprised you didn’t deal with it first when news like this came out.
Davian looked at the scraps of newspaper on the floor, his face turning pale with anxiety. “I-I have just found out about it, too.” He blamed it on Kelvin in his mind, as Kelvin brought him to drink last night, causing him to oversleep. ‘Drinking really can ruin things,” he thought to himself. “I-I’m going to get someone putting a lid on it now.” He tried to remedy the situation.
“It’s too late.” Gilbert snapped coldly. Looking at the two men’s unusual expressions, Robert was alarmed, and he asked cautiously,” Mr. Kooper, what is wrong? Isn’t this news a good thing for us? It gives the drama a good deal of hype, and it is free.”
“Is that so?” Gilbert’s icy glare sent a chill up Robert’s spin. He suddenly remembered something and said,” Mr. Kooper, you mind that this woman looks like your late wife?”
Gilbert said nothing this time, his face horribly grave.
Seeing this, Robert could confirm his suspicion. “You don’t mind, as everyone knows this woman is not your wife. How can she be your wife when she is so ugly and, at most has a slight resemblance to your wife? The media are deliberately using this headline to get attention, so you can let it be. The more buzz it gets, the more publicity the drama will gain.”
As Gilbert’s face was getting even frostier, Davian hurriedly said to Robert, “All right. If there is nothing else, leave us now.”
Robert had only come for the role of Howard, and now that he had achieved his goal, he really did not want to spend any more time in front of this surly man. So he hurriedly nodded his head. “Okay, I will leave now.”
The news really pissed Gilbert ofl.As Davian saw the wound on Gilbert’s chest bled again, he hurriedly called Kelvin over.
Gilbert stared at the scraps of newspaper on the floor and laughed grimly. “No wonder I could not find her. It turns out she is hiding out with the pretty boy. How could I forget about this pretty boy?”
“Mr. Kooper-” “She will do anything to make this pretty boy famous.” Davian stared at Gilbert’s frosty scowl for a moment, not really knowing what to say. He had a vague feeling that something was fishy about the story, but he did not dare speak up for Kisa in front of Gilbert.
In a cottage, somewhere remote–
Kisa was alarmed when she woke up in the dark and unfamiliar surroundings.
