Chapter 111 Fulfilling His Wish
Titus lounged lazily on the couch, and Jodie nestled in his arms as he engaged in a casual conversation with Harold.
The topic shifted to Titus online affairs as Harold inquired.
Unable to resist, he vented his frustration about his sister, Simone. Eventually, he downed a glass of wine in one gulp. lamenting. I have never been so embarrassed before, all thanks to my dear sister.”
Harold couldn’t believe that Titus had lost to Simone in such a miserable defeat. He looked at Titus sympathetically and sighed. “Both you and Leon are truly pitiful.”
“I called Leon to go out for a drink. Harold continued saying. “But as soon as he heard that you bringing your sister, he refused.”
He couldn’t help but chuckle, adding. “It’s the first time I’ve known that he can be so cowardly.
Harold also mentioned Leon’s fear of being seen with Jodie privately, as it might lead to Simone misunderstanding their relationship.
Been misunderstood for a long time? Is there any point in fearing it now? Titus rugged at his tie with a mocking look, saying. “It’s ridiculous that he’s pretending to be deeply in love now.”
“We used to be like best friends since we were both ruined by the same person. Titus continued. “But not only did he abandon me, he also blamed me. I don’t want to have a drink with him.”
Still angry about Leon. Titus added. “He and Aaron are both unreliable teammates.”
Harold remarked. “It can only mean that Simone is quite capable.
Although not familiar with Simone, he often heard Gwen mention her as a good friend. His curiosity about Simone intensified upon learning about the situations of his childhood friends. She must be extraordinary to make both Leon and Titus fail.
What troubled him was that Gwen did not pick up on Simone’s positive traits.
After Gwen returned, she never took the initiative to contact him or return to the company. As some time passed, he couldn’t sit still and had to come back to pick her up personally.
Who knew that when be contacted her, she not only refused to meet him but also hung up and blocked hurn?

Harold helplessly said, “Yeah, that’s why I’m afraid of the two of them being together. It would make it even harder for me to manage her.”
Harold didn’t expect Gwen to hit Leon like that, just for Simone’s sake.
Titus had a look of amusement on his face. “Definitely, I can’t wait to see the drama between you and Gwen. I wonder if you can win her back. Leon was rejected by Simone; it seems like she’s not planning to get back with him.
“You brought this upon yourselves. Why get caught up in all this lovey–dovey stuff? Be single like me. I can do whatever I want. No woman dares to disrespect me.”
Harold glanced at Jodie, who was being embraced by Titus, and raised an eyebrow. “So, you even…”
Although he didn’t finish his sentence, the meaning was clear. Titus glared at him angrily. “Stop talking nonsense. Jo is my sister.”
Jodie scolded Harold with a glance, “Exactly, Harold. Don’t overthink it. Titus just spoils me a bit.”
Harold was speechless. He had never seen someone embrace their sister so intimately before, but since he and Titus were good friends, he didn’t say it directly. He picked up his glass and drank. “Cheers!“,
Titus clinked glasses with him.
Simone and Gwen couldn’t help but feel a bit angered by their conversation.
Gwen continued to capture the scene, taking a few pictures of Titus embracing Jodie and casually conversing with Harold on the couch.
These photos would undoubtedly cause a sensation if released.
At that moment, they witnessed Innocent Lily standing up to pour more wine for Harold.
Then, almost as if she had slipped by accident, she suddenly fell onto Harold’s body.
Simone couldn’t help but laugh at the sight. “No wonder they’re sisters; they have the same style. Jodie did the same thing with Leon before”
She had previously exposed ambiguous photos of Leon and Jodie, though some angles were edited. Nevertheless, the two of them were indeed ambiguous, and the photos were unaltered.
Even if it was intentional on Jodie’s part, Leon still went along with it; it wasn’t fake.
It took two to tango. If he genuinely wanted to avoid initiating ambiguous situations with other women, he had to maintain his distance. Ultimately, when he claimed. “We’re innocent. You misunderstood, it was even more revolting than cheating.
Although the current ambiguity was initiated by Innocent Lily, if Harold hadn’t brought her around and provided the opportunity, how could she have fallen onto him like that?

Simone agreed. “Exactly.”
Then, she witnessed Innocent Lily fall onto Harold’s body, and he reached out to help her up.
Innocent Lily stumbled again as if she hadn’t found her footing. This time, she fell directly into his arms, making them look extremely ambiguous,
This was undoubtedly a deliberate act by Innocent Lily to show off in front of Gwen.
Simone heard Tutus look at Harold with a suggestive expression: seems to have a considerable amount of good fortune in love affairs.”
He joked. “If Gwen sees this. I wonder if she’ll tear you apart?”
say, “The aloof academic god
Everyone in the circle knew that Gwen had pursued Harold and gone abroad.
The others immediately joined in. “Why don’t we invite her to come out for a drink?”
Harold looked at them and said, “Stop teasing. If Gwen sees this, she’ll definitely tear me apart,”
They were still in a cold war because of Freya.
He looked at Freya in his arms and furrowed his brow, saying, “Are you okay?”
The implication was that she should get up quickly if she were fine.
Freya blushed and apologized, “I’m sorry; there was water on the ground, and I slipped.”
As she spoke, she seemed to be preparing to stand up but deliberately dragged her feet.
Upon observing this, Simone nudged Gwen and remarked, ‘Gwen, this is the perfect opportunity to end things with this Useless Rock completely.”
While their relationship remained undefined, Harold had been giving Gwen the impression of a romantic interest. His recent words only served to confirm this perception.
Now, with another woman sitting in his lap–though it was Innocent Lily, who had intentionally “accidentally fallen into his arms–it failed to alter the ambiguous situation they found themselves in.
Things wouldn’t be like this if he could maintain his distance and not give Innocent Lily a chance. What annoyed Simone even more was that they were involving her and Gwen in the conversation.
Coincidentally, she hadn’t exercised recently and wanted to stretch her muscles,
Gwen’s expression turned sour, clearly sharing Simone’s thoughts. She nodded and declared, “Alright. since he wants me to tear him apart. I’ll fulfill his wish now.”
