Chapter 127 1 Misjudged Her In The Past.
Meanwhile, at the Gray Group’s office building, the talisman on the compass suddenly ignited and exploded.
Master Shane’s pupils shrank. He wanted to throw away the compass, but he was too slow. As a result, a backlash force struck him and nearly caused him to spit out a mouthful of blood.
However, he forcefully held it back and swallowed the blood just to prevent anyone present from noticing.
Then, with a heart full of shock, Master Shane realized that Simone’s strength had become. incredibly strong. But that’s impossible!
Although Master Shane didn’t spit out blood, Harold and Steven keenly noticed that his hand trembled and chest heaved when the talisman burned and exploded.
His facial expression instantly turned considerably pale.
Therefore, Steven tentatively asked, “Master Shane, did you fail again this time?” Despite feeling extremely uncomfortable, as if his internal organs were burning at this moment, Master Shane put on a carefree appearance and replied, “I failed again because the blood is not enough.”
Looking at Titus, he added, “Young friend, I still need your blood if I’m going to alleviate the pain in your body.”
Right after these words escaped his lips, everyone present shifted their attention to Titus.
For some reason, Titus felt resistant to offering his blood.
Just then, Luca spoke. “Titus, what’s there to hesitate about? Hurry up and offer your blood to stop your pain!” Immediately afterward, Andrew echoed, “That’s right. Jo and you are in so much pain. So, hurry up and offer some blood.”
Steven was speechless. How did I end up with these two foolish sons?
Even so, he didn’t immediately speak up to stop them. Instead, he wanted to see how Titus. would decide on his own.
As for Harold, he had been staring at Master Shane and noticed something.
Suddenly, he asked, “Master Shane, is it true that you have to harm the one who has inflicted the negative energy on us first in order to use our blood to break it? And if it fails, will you also be injured?” His question stunned the Gray Family’s father-and-son quartet.
Master Shane was taken aback, for he didn’t expect that Harold would know.
With his facial expression unchanged, he nodded. “The principle is indeed like this.
The reason I’m telling the truth is that I can’t deceive them.
Mr. Gray or Harold will find out the answer if they consult a powerful Geomancy master.
So, I might as well admit it openly.
Furrowing his brows, Titus said, “So, it means the person who inflicted negative energy on us will be harmed through my blood?” Upon hearing that. Master Shane nodded. “Yes, only through this way can the curse be broken.”
Immediately afterward, he added. “The other person won’t be seriously injured. After all, I’m just reflecting the pain and suffering back to that person. You can consider it as a case of treating others as they have treated you.”
In other words, it was perfectly fine to retaliate.
If it weren’t for Steven being here and knowing that Simone was the one who cursed them, Jodie would have involuntarily persuaded Titus.
Still, with Titus’ cunning and vengeful nature, she figured he certainly wouldn’t let Simone. off the hook.
Unexpectedly, Titus hesitated.
Won’t my grudge with Simone deepen if I retaliate? My previous actions toward her were purely for the sake of reputation.
I just wanted her to apologize, come home, and admit her mistake.
After all, there isn’t much loss for her to give up being a celebrity and return home to enjoy her life as the daughter of the Gray Family.
The thing is, I don’t know whether this old man has any malicious intentions.
What if Simone experiences more than just the pain inflicted on us? What if the retaliation causes significant physical harm or even endangers her life? I had heard that battles between geomancy masters can result in severe injuries for the losing side.
After hesitating, Titus said, “Forget it. I won’t break the curse.”
“Master Shane, can you lend me a mystical tool like the one Master Gordon has? I just need it to alleviate my pain. No worries. I will pay for it.
Although he was mad at Simone, he wouldn’t be so heartless as to put his biological sister in mortal danger.
Also, it was mainly because he didn’t know whether Master Shane would deceive him or not.
Otherwise, he did intend to let Simone experience the pain herself.
she wouldn’t use such ruthless methods against him again.
Upon hearing Titus’ decision, Steven breathed a sigh of relief.
Thank goodness Titus still hasn’t become so ruthless as to disregard everything.
However, Jodie couldn’t fathom Titus’ choice.
Since when did Titus become so forgiving? Shouldn’t he have agreed to retaliate mercilessly? Why? Just because Simone is his biological sister? No! I absolutely can’t accept this!
Even though she didn’t dare to express her anger directly in front of Steven, she actually reached out and tugged at Luca’s clothes when Steven and the others weren’t paying
However, Luca hesitated. Is it really okay for us to retaliate against our biological sister? What if something goes wrong or there are unforeseen consequences? If not, maybe we can let Simone experience the pain herself. That might prevent her from being so ruthless in the future.
Seeing Luca keeping silent, Jodie pinched Andrew’s back a little.
To her dismay, Andrew had a similar thought to Luca.
When Jodie saw neither of them immediately offer their help, she was infuriated.
What’s the meaning of this?! Have they become mute when it comes to Simone?! Could it be that I have to suffer in vain?! Besides, I don’t want to endure pain for days on end!
She spoke up, feeling wronged and pitiful. “I have to appear on a variety show next week, but my finger is still hurting even while I’m holding this bracelet.”
I won’t let Simone off the hook under any circumstances today.
I have to help these two masters obtain Titus’ blood.
Upon hearing Jodie’s words, Andrew felt a pang of sympathy..
Thus, he asked Master Shane, “Master Shane, is the retaliation really just to let the other party experience the pain and not cause any other harm?” Master Shane nodded. “Yes. Don’t
It indeed won’t hurt Simone too badly this time, but it won’t be the same in the future.
Andrew let out a sigh of relief and then turned to Titus, saying, “Titus, since there won’t be any further harm, you don’t have to hesitate. Go ahead and offer your blood. That way, you won’t have to endure the pain anymore.”
Titus looked at him and asked, “Are you saying that don’t want me or Jo to suffer anymore?” Andrew confidently replied. “Of course, I don’t want either of you to suffer anymore. Titus, don’t tell me you can’t do this. It doesn’t seem like you.”
Among the five of us brothers. Titus is the most heartless and ruthless.
Titus was angry. Is Andrew suggesting that I am heartless and ruthless?
Thinking about this, he sneered, “I can only pray for you. I hope you don’t end up in Simone’s hands in the future. Otherwise, you’ll regret it.”
With Simone’s intelligence, she will definitely figure out if I offer my blood today.
That will escalate our conflict.
There’s no hope for reconciliation; our interactions will only breed more hatred in the future.
Moreover, considering Simone’s current temperament, she will likely torment me relentlessly in the future.
Andrew smirked. “Do you really think I’m afraid of her? Besides, we’re just giving her a taste. of her own medicine. After all, she was the one who started it. Titus, why are you so indecisive?” Titus’ face twisted with displeasure as he was mocked by his younger brother.
Just as he was about to speak, Steven’s angry voice interrupted. “That’s enough. This matter ends here.”
If it weren’t for the presence of others, I would have wanted to slap Andrew.
Jodie pretended to be helpless and played the victim, yet Andrew willingly engaged in the conflict. How foolish!
As expected, this adopted daughter of mine is manipulative. Look at how she intentionally sows discord among my sons and Simone!
I had truly misjudged her in the past.
