Chapter 129 Simone Must Be Doing It On Purpose
Tax and Harold’s choices were indeed unexpected for Simone.
Truth be told, she had never considered killing Titus.
She would only retaliate in the same way he harmed her.
Since he wanted to tarnish her reputation on the jinternet, Simone turned the tables and
The negative energy she had inflicted on them before was just a minor trick to mess with them.
As Master Shane had said, it wouldn’t harm their bodies.
Furthermore, the negative energy had long dissipated. Its only effect was amplifying the subconscious pain in their injured areas.
It was similar to phantom pain.
For that reason, Master Gordon’s mystical tool could alleviate and suppress their pain.
Moreover, the greater the pain, the more it helped to clear one’s mind.
As Titus always had a screw loose in his head, Simone figured it was good for him to regain
She was proven right since Titus could think clearly now.
Of course, the past couldn’t be erased.
Therefore, even if Titus became normal and started caring about her, she would never forgive and reconcile with him.
As long as they didn’t have any ill intentions toward her or take the initiative to harm her, she wouldn’t seek revenge on them and vice versa.
As for Steven, Simone couldn’t deny that he was a competent chairman in his career. However, he failed as a father.
Not only did he neglect me, but he also neglected his five sons.
He only demanded more from Reuben, considering he was the future heir, after all.
On the other hand, his other sons were left to their own devices.
Steven could still accept it as long as they didn’t get involved in illegal activities, even if they were just playboys who indulged in eating, drinking, and having fun.
Such was the tradition of the Gray Family. Other than the heir, the rest of the children were left to their own devices.
Outwardly, it might seem like the open-mindedness of the elders of the Gray Family.
However, Simone speculated that they probably didn’t want the other siblings to be overly outstanding, fearing that it would lead to conflicts over the family inheritance and affect the development of the Gray Family.
What they solely wanted was for the heir to have outstanding abilities.
Even though they would still pay attention to the others if they were competent, it would. never surpass the heir.
If they lacked business acumen, they would just hold onto their shares, receive annual dividends, and be free to do whatever they pleased.
That was why, apart from Reuben being a tyrannical president, Steven showed his support instead of opposing or hindering when his other sons, Jodie, and Simone entered the entertainment industry.
As Steven had always paid attention to the Gray Group and his work, and coupled with Jodie’s excellent disguise, he didn’t realize that his sons had been influenced and led astray by his adopted daughter since childhood.
Now that he had realized it, it was too late.
Steven didn’t completely ignore Simone, but he didn’t pay much attention to her either. Among the entire Gray Family, Steven was considered relatively normal.
Unlike others, Steven didn’t deliberately favor Jodie and target her.
In Simone’s previous life, Steven was still abroad on his business trip and wasn’t present at the scene when she and Jodie were kidnapped.
For that reason, she didn’t know how he would choose.
Nevertheless, his choice didn’t matter anymore
His past inaction had left her with no expectations or feelings toward him.
For her, it was too late for him to realize his mistake and want to make amends now.
No matter how the Gray Family changed, she would never step foot into the Gray Residence
in this lifetime.
It was even more impossible for her to continue being a family with them.
In her birth certificate, there would only be herself, and that would be the only outcome.
If anyone wanted to condemn her for being heartless and cold, so be it. She didn’t care.
Gwen turned her head and asked, “Simone, do you want to relieve Sc*mbag No. 2 and Harold’s pain?” Upon hearing that, Simone nodded. “Yeah. Originally, I just wanted to teach them a lesson. If these two geomancy masters and Jodie insist on interfering, then let them continue this act.”
With Steven’s shrewdness, he should be able to see through the flaws.
After she finished speaking, she gestured a few times in the air.
Then, she pointed at Titus and Harold in the surveillance footage. “Break!”
On the other side, Harold didn’t hesitate or show reluctance after hearing what Master Gordon said.
He handed over the jade in his hand. “Thank you, Master Gordon!” This little pain is nothing. I can endure it for ten days to half a month.
Still, Simone is indeed ruthless. I might want to avoid her in the future.
Master Gordon didn’t expect Harold to have such a high tolerance for pain.
Despite retrieving the jade with a smile on his face, he wasn’t happy in his heart.
Jodie, on the other hand, didn’t want to return the bracelet. Hence, she didn’t make a move.
“I can’t bear the pain. Master Gordon, can you let me wear it for a few more days? I promise to return it to you once I’m better.”
She knew that Master Gordon wanted the mystical tool back only to force Titus and Harold to make a choice.
By saying this, she wanted to stimulate her other two brothers to continue helping her.
She wanted to make them come forward and make Titus drip his blood to break the spell.
Master Gordon understood her intentions. Smiling apologetically, he shook his head. “Our sect has rules that prohibit lending or selling this mystical tool. I lent it to you just now because I’ll be back soon, and you didn’t take it outside. So, it doesn’t count as an exception.”
Upon seeing Jodie behaving like this, Steven involuntarily frowned.
Jodie and the two masters seem a bit off.
It’s as if they’re trying to force Titus to drip his blood through various excuses.
Looking at Jodie, he spoke unhappily. “Jo, don’t force others to do things they don’t want to do.”
Not only is this adopted daughter of mine petty, but she also lacks moral vigor.
She insists on borrowing it even when others refuse, which is embarrassing.
The more Steven indulged in his train of thought, the more he wondered if she acted like this because she was in pain. Meanwhile, Jodie felt a sense of resentment toward him, thinking that he was being too controlling.
But outwardly, she obediently nodded and handed the bracelet to Master Gordon.
After Master Gordon took it from her, Jodie suddenly felt a sharp pain. She crouched down. and hugged herself, trembling in pain.
When Andrew witnessed the situation, he couldn’t help but express his concern, “Dad, you’re really pressuring Jo into doing something she doesn’t want to do! You’ve forbidden the masters from resolving the spell, and now you’re insisting that Jo returns the bracelet. Can’t you see that Titus and Jo are in great distress?”
Steven glared at him angrily and retorted, “Keep quiet!”
However, Andrew stubbornly replied, “I won’t.”
Just then, Titus and Harold noticed that the pain in their injured areas was gradually subsiding.
In an instant, they exchanged surprised glances Are you still experiencing any pain?” They both shook their heads simultaneously. “Suddenly, the pain is gone.”
“In that case, we no longer need this mystical tool,” Harold said with a meaningful tone.
He speculated inwardly that Simone must have done something.
Titus nodded and turned to Steven, saying, “Dad, we’re no longer in pain. Simone must have resolved the spell.”
Based on the appearance of these two masters, they don’t seem like the ones who have broken the spell for
Therefore, it must be Simone’s doing
Jodie abruptly looked up. “Titus, I can’t believe you would lie just to avoid resolving the spell
As she was still experiencing a great deal of pain, she firmly believed that Titus was being
Raising his eyebrow, Titus said, “I wouldn’t lie about this. I genuinely don’t feel any pain”
To prove his point, he even deliberately jumped a few times afterwards.
Im not in pain either, Harold chimed in.
Freya, who had remained silent all along, covered her face and exclaimed, “But I’m still in a lot of pain.
Upon hearing that, Titus shrugged his shoulders. “Then I don’t know why.”
Could it be that because both of you used your blood to resolve the spell, but it ended up unresolved?” Harold added and thought, Simone must be doing it on purpose.
However I’m slightly confused. Could it be that Simone is aware of what has happened here? Otherwise, how can she deliberately relieve only our pain and not Jodie and Freya’s?
Likewise, Titus also suspected that Simone had done it intentionally.
At once, he felt somewhat uneasy in his heart.
This biological sister of mine is truly remarkable! I can’t believe she can even anticipate what has transpired here. I will never provoke her again in the future. It’s terrifying!
