Chapter 132 You Have No Idea:
Simone guessed, “Most likely, she wants to get the mystical tool from you and give it to Jodie
Gwen also realized this and found Melinda unreasonable. She put the call on speakerphone, aying, “What brings you to call me out of the blue today?”
Upon hearing Gwen’s sarcasm, Melinda was not pleased, but upon considering the purpose of her call, she had no choice but to accept it. She spoke gently. Tm your mother. Can’t I show some concern for you?”
Gwen didn’t fall for it. “So, today is not a normal day as the sun rose from the west.”
Melinda was speechless. Knowing that a gentle approach wouldn’t work, she decided to get straight to the point. I have something to discuss with you.”
Gwen lazily responded, “That’s right; just get to the point. There’s no need to pretend to be a loving mother. It’s disgusting.”
Melinda was so angry that she stumbled back. “You!” She took a deep breath and softened her tone as much as possible. “We’re mother and daughter. Must we make it so tense?”
Gwen yawned. “Why is it so tense? Don’t you have any motives? Stop beating around the bush. If you have something to say, say it. If not, just hang up. I’m busy and don’t have time to engage in this mother–daughter drama with you. If you want to act, go find Skyler and Leon. They would be happy to play with you.”
If it weren’t for something important, Melinda would have ended the phone call. Gwen was heartless and cold, unlike a caring daughter, so she didn’t beat around the bush anymore. T want to borrow an antique with auspicious energy from you. I’ll return it in two weeks.”
“I do have one.” Gwen deliberately dragged her tone. “But I won’t lend it to you.”
Melinda’s face changed. “Gwen, you’re going too far. Since what I said to you didn’t work, do I need
your father to come and talk to you personally?” She knew she couldn’t control Gwen, so she brought up Adam.
Gwen wasn’t afraid. “Then, let him come find me. By then, I’ll have a good talk with Grandma and him. And while we’re at it, I’ll have Grandma invite you back to the mansion for a meal.”
Melinda choked. “You ungrateful daughter! You do want to anger me to death, don’t you?”
Gwen smiled. “Don’t worry, if you die of anger, I definitely won’t pray for you. To spare you from feeling disgusted, I also think it’s a waste of energy to pray for you.”
If it weren’t for Adam and her grandfather, she would have been harmed by Melinda’s family. in the past.

Gwen ended the call and stared at Simone in disbelief. “I can’t understand why Melinda treats Jodie so well. She treats Jodie much better than she treats me and Leon. I even feel like she treats Jodie better than Skyler.”
“I can’t help but wonder if Jodie is her biological child.” Simone chuckled. “If Jodie is her child, she wouldn’t have gone to such lengths to pair Leon with her,” Gwen responded.
Gwen had secretly conducted a DNA test between her, Skyler, Leon, and Melinda, confirming that Melinda was their biological mother. So, Jodie couldn’t be Melinda’s child.
Gwen pondered for a moment and said, “That makes sense. But I still can’t understand. Could it be that Jodie is related to Melinda’s family?” Melinda treated her own family much better than she treated them, especially in terms of support.
“Why don’t you help me analyze their features and see if there is any blood relation between Melinda and Jodie.” Simone smiled and said, “Sure. Show me a picture of Melinda.” Gwen nodded and found an old family portrait in an album. She also retrieved a photo of Jodie taken that night from her phone.
“Let’s compare them.” Simone took the phone and carefully examined the photo of Melinda. In the family portrait, Melinda had minimal makeup and no camera filter, so her facial features were clear. Then she looked at Jodie’s photo and made a comparison.
“They aren’t mother and daughter, and they have no blood relation.” Simone wasn’t surprised by this. But Melinda did treat Jodie exceptionally well, which was a bit strange. She went back to look at the family portrait again. Then a look of surprise appeared on her face. “I noticed something significant.”
Gwen leaned closer and asked, “What is it?” Simone looked at Gwen with a somewhat awkward expression and uttered, “Your dad has been betrayed.”
Gwen was stunned. She looked at the photo on her phone. Then she suddenly realized what Simone meant. “You mean my dad has been cheated on by Melinda?” She asked again, “So Skyler is not my dad’s biological child?” When she secretly did the DNA test before, she also took a sample of Adam’s hair, and it matched. If that was the case, then Skyler was the one with the problem. She hadn’t considered this before.
Simone nodded. “Yes. Based on the photo, there is no blood relation between Skyler and your dad, but he is Melinda’s child.” Then she seemed to remember something and opened Jodie’s photo again. Continuing with the family portrait, Gwen enlarged the picture of Jodie’s face. She had always felt that something had been overlooked, and now she knew what it was.
When Gwen saw her action, she couldn’t help but widen her eves and ask “Sl.

their faces, they are half–siblings.”
She continued, “Melinda is really something. After marrying into the Fosters, she had an affair and gave birth to an illegitimate child. She even kept it a secret until now. And Skyler has already been brought to the company by your dad to be groomed as the heir, right?”
Gwen was stunned by the revelation, and it took her a moment to recover. “She’s really something.” Things that she couldn’t understand before suddenly became clear.
“No wonder she never liked me and Leon but liked Skyler so much. If it weren’t for accidentally getting pregnant with us, and having an abortion would harm her body, she wouldn’t have wanted to give birth to us.
“No wonder she treats Jodie better than us and even tries to pair her with Leon. It turns out that Jodie is her lover’s daughter, and she loves her too.”
It had to be said that Gwen was disgusted by her own mother. Simone also understood why Melinda didn’t like her, but instead liked Jodie. She had always helped Jodie with her impression in front of Salma. It turned out to be a case of loving the whole family.
At this moment, Gwen’s phone rang again. Seeing the caller ID, Gwen showed a hint of complexity on her face. ‘It’s my dad calling.” Simone said, “Don’t tell him about this on the phone.” It wasn’t safe to talk about it over the phone.
Gwen nodded, answered the call, and said, “Dad.‘ She treated her biological father much better. Although he had a love brain, he secretly protected her and Leon. She was forcibly sent to Melinda’s family and had a difficult time. Adam often sent money and had people bring her food and entertainment.
Knowing that she was being abused, he subtly reminded her that she could live with her brother. She was smart enough at the time to think of her grandfather, so she called him. Sure enough, her grandfather came to take her in and didn’t let Melinda and her family
She was able to keep the things her grandfather left for her, thanks to Adam’s secret protection. She still had feelings for Adam. Especially now, she sympathized with him even more. He fought his way out of the Fosters and became the powerful and decisive chairman of the Foster Group. He was not only a love brain but also betrayed by his wife. Adam was truly pitiful.
She couldn’t help but speak with a touch of sympathy. “Dad, are you okay?” When Adam heard Gwen’s voice, it seemed to carry a sense of sympathy, which was somewhat inexplicable.
“I’m fine, what’s wrong?” Adam responded.
Gwen changed the subject. “Did Melinda complain to you?” Adam uttered, “She conveyed

your conversation to me.” Gwen pouted. ‘She doesn’t have any other skills, but she’s excellent at complaining.” In her mind, she added, she was also excellent at seducing men, shameless. Adam helplessly said. “You know what kind of person she is, why to bother arguing with her?”
Gwen dissatisfiedly said. “She picked a fight with me, and I don’t owe her anything. You don’t of it, it’s like giving a have to say anything. I won’t lend her that mystical tool. If she gets on hone to a dog, there’s no going back.”
She knew exactly what kind of person Melinda was. Melinda said she wanted to borrow it, but in reality, she definitely wouldn’t return it. Most likely, she would just give it directly to Jodie. And even if she did return it, she wouldn’t have lent it in the first place. Not to mention that Gwen also discovered those dirty secrets, so she definitely wouldn’t have lent it.
Adam sighed helplessly. “What are you saying? Dogs and all, don’t mention it again in the future.” Gwen rolled her eyes. “I never intended to.
Adam sighed again. “Then what should we do? She ordered me to get that mystical tool from you today no matter what.”
Gwen firmly stated, “Forget it, I won’t lend it anyway.
Adam persuaded, “Why don’t you reconsider? Or come up with a way to deal with her.
Gwen’s frustration with Melinda had reached its peak. “No need to think about it. She can forget about touching any of my belongings.”
Adam seemed to have thought of something. “Why don’t you ask your grandmother? I’m out of options.” Those words resonated with Gwen. “That’s exactly what I was thinking.”
Even if Adam didn’t make this call, she was prepared to seek out Old Mrs. Foster. Not only would Melinda , but she would too.
Adam’s voice carried a tone of affection. “You!” Gwen had put the call on speakerphone, so Simone heard their conversation as well. She typed a few lines on her phone and handed it
