Chapter 136 Walk into the Same Trap
Simone was on the phone with Jonah, discussing the upcoming variety show. Unfortunately, Leyla had been in a car accident and wouldn’t be able to participate. Jonah decided to replace her with a new regular guest and have a few more flying guests throughout the week’s
The show had become so popular that there were many people vying for a spot. Jonah couldn’t refuse some of the companies and individuals who wanted to be on the show. To do Simone a favor, he allowed her to bring one of the artists from her studio as a flight companion for two days. Simone had recently held auditions for Fiona and Ethan, so she planned to take Harry with her and informed Jonah about it. Harry was not well–known and lacked popularity, so a spot on the show would be good for him.
After ending the call, Simone informed Harry that he would be going on the variety show with her. Gwen suddenly remembered something and asked Simone when they were going to release the photos she took on her phone.
Simone knew she was referring to the intimate photos of Sc mbag No. 2 and Jodie. She told Gwen to send them to Gary and that they would be released at a more appropriate time on the next episode of the variety show. Relcasing them now wouldn’t have much of an effect, but if they found the right timing, it would definitely boost Jodie’s fame even more. Gwen understood and smirked.
Simone and Gwen returned to their apartment together after finishing their work. Meanwhile, Jonah informed the other guests about Leyla’s injury and the need for a replacement. When receiving Jonah’s call, Aaron was playing games with Luca, who happened to overhear that Harry had been confirmed as a flying guest and therefore felt somewhat displeased.
After Aaron hung up the phone, Luca said, “Aaron, now that your regular guest got injured, how about me taking his place?”
Surprised, Aaron asked, “Didn’t you say you hate programs like the show?”
Luca replied, “You, Jodie, and Simone are all participating, and I want to join the fun too. Besides, I don’t want to go abroad with Dad.”
He was still unhappy that Simone was bringing the st*pid Harry to the show. So, he decided. to be part of it too. Then he could outshine Harry there, and redirect Simone’s attention back to himself as her brother. Of course, he didn’t explicitly state this.
After thinking for a moment, Aaron thought Luca joining was not a bad idea, so he wouldn’t be stuck as the middleman between Simone and Jodie.
Ill ask Jonah, Aaron said as he redialed Jonah’s phone.

Jonah was surprised to hear that Luca wanted to participate in the show. He knew Luca was a well–known singer in the country and usually focused on singing–related shows. He didn’t mmediately agree but told Aaron that they would have to discuss this matter with Gray Entertainment.
After the call, Jonah contacted Simone again and informed her about Luca’s interest in replacing Leyla. Simone guessed that Luca must be doing it for Jodie, as Sc’mbag No. 3 and Sembag No. 4 were the closest to her among the Gray brothers. She hinted that if Luca appeared on the show, there would be a lot of intimate contact with Jodie and more. information about her in the next episode. Simone believed that releasing the intimate photos at that time would create the perfect opportunity for a scoop.
Jonah laughed and agreed that the next episode of the show would definitely be popular if Luca participated. He decided to wait for someone from Gray Entertainment with authority to come and discuss it.
Meanwhile, Luca couldn’t sit still after hearing the conversation between Aaron and Jonah. He was afraid that someone else would take the guest spot, so he took the initiative to contact
Inside a clubhouse, Titus was having drinks with his two troubled friends. Seeing his brother’s call, Titus felt a bit puzzled. He answered, “What’s up?”
Luca explained his desire to participate in the show, saying. “Titus, get a spot for me.”
Titus was speechless. “You want to join the next show? Are you out of your mind?” snapped. Titus. In the previous show. Aaron had his reputation rained by Simone. The lessons were still fresh. Now Luca wanted to willingly walk into the same trap?
Displeased, Lucas said. “Titus, just say whether you’ll help or not.”
Titus, recalling the incidents where his brother competed for his prayer beads today. chuckled. “Sure, you’re my brother. Of course I’ll help you. Considering the bond of blood, he decided to indulge this fool. He would let Simone deal with him and help him think better.
For some unknown reason, Luca felt a chill down his spine, “So, it’s a deal then?”
Titus assured, “No problem. I’ll handle it for you. Although Titus’s reputation was currently tarnished, and he was temporarily cast aside by the company, he was still the second young master of the Gray Family with influential connections.
“Thank you, Titus, Luca exclaimed, joyful.
I hope you’ll still be thankful after the show, Titus thought to himself. On the phone, however, he just answered, “You’re welcome.”
ver hanging op, Titus contacted a director from the company’s investment department, omeone familiar with Jonah. Since the person had a good relationship with Jonah, he agreed to help Laca secure a spot without hesitation.
Titus felt relieved after making the call and poured himself a glass of wine, smiling as he
Harold glanced at him and remarked. “Are you really that pleased with yourself for deceiving your brother?”
Titus raised an eyebrow and retorted. “Weren’t you happy when you deceived your brother?”
Harold chuckled. That’s a different matter.”
Titus shrugged nonchalantly. “Although what I did was different, it was still foolish and required someone to rectify it.”
Harold burst into laughter. “Indeed, your brother is quite foolish. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to have Simone help him regain his senses”
Both of them smirked and clinked their glasses.
Meanwhile, on the other side. Simone received a notification message.
She discovered that Jodie had sent a text message to an unfamiliar number that was not saved in her phone contacts.
The message read: [Bro, I can’t bear the pain anymore. I’ve asked everyone I know, but couldn’t find a mystical tool to alleviate it. Can you arrange for someone to send one to me?]
Soon, a reply came: [Okay!]
Simone followed up on this response and traced it back.
However, she found that it was from an anonymous SIM card and couldn’t determine the sender’s identity.
There were no messaging apps installed on the phone.
Instead, there were several text messages exchanged with Jodie, all from numbers without saved contacts, only displaying phone numbers.
