The Heiress’ Return & Revenge 54% Chapter 16 You Started It Simone’s team froze when Aaron made that demand. They turned to Simone, realizing from Aaron’s tone that he seemed familiar with her and was even being imperious. Speechless, Simone stared at Aaron. “That’s not how you ask someone for help. What makes you think you can make me cook for you?” Aaron fell silent once more. “I…” He wanted to say, ‘because I’m your brother,’ but when he caught the icy look in Simone’s eyes, he couldn’t say anything. Before they came on this show, Jodie had warned. him not to reveal their connection to Simone, just in case she got triggered and caused trouble.
That would be difficult to handle. Simone sneered. “Aaron, if your brain isn’t functioning, I suggest you get it replaced. I am not your servant.” Zac could see that Simone strongly disliked Aaron. Time to support my teammate. He raised an eyebrow at Aaron. “Well, someone has no shame. Simone is not on your team, and she doesn’t owe you anything. Why should she help you cook?” Just then, Aaron’s team emerged from the kitchen. Jodie looked apologetically at Zac. “I’m sorry. I hurt my hand while cooking. Aaron got worried, so he asked Simone for help.” She extended her right hand, showing a few red spots, and then looked at Simone. “Aaron was only concerned about me. Please don’t be angry with him.” Simone knew Jodie was trying to show how much Aaron cared about her, hoping to provoke her into saying something she shouldn’t. Simone raised an eyebrow. “Don’t flaunt your sibling love to me. If he truly cared, he would have cooked for you.
He shouldn’t have come to me. All I did was refuse his demand, and then you suddenly appeared, telling me to leave him alone because he was just worried about you.” Deliberately, she added, “And I have severed all ties with you. You have no grounds to morally manipulate me.” Jodie couldn’t believe Simone remained calm. She should have gotten angry and cursed at me. She quickly shook her head. “I’m not morally manipulating you or anything.” Simone’s last statement worried her. She feared Simone might reveal their relationship to everyone. Since Simone had cut off all ties with the family, Jodie hoped Simone would never get involved with the Grays again. I am Aaron’s only sister. She quickly took hold of Aaron’s arm. “Aaron, my hand is much better now. I ran it under cold water. I can continue cooking. You don’t need to ask anyone for help.” Aaron wanted to say something. He couldn’t tolerate Simone’s attitude. She said my brain isn’t functioning? And she claims that Jodie is morally manipulating her? It’s not like she hasn’t cooked for us. She even made herbal soups just to win us over. He held back because Jodie was shaking her head at him, and he scoffed. “I see someone thinks they’re too good for me now.” Simone replied, “Yes, I do. We are not even acquaintances, so please don’t act like you own me next time.” It wasn’t the right time to reveal their relationship. If she broke the news herself, it would appear as if she were seeking sympathy, someone who still cared about the Grays. However, if someone discovered it after some investigation, it would have a different impact. The latter would make her seem like a person deserving of sympathy due to her troubled past. She didn’t need their sympathy, but she wouldn’t reject it either. Aaron’s face fell. “Do not forget who you are, Simone. Know your place.” 1/3 Simone rolled her eyes. “You should really get a new brain.”
That’s not how you speak to your brother. Can’t you be more loving like Jodie? Jodie didn’t want them to argue any further. She was worried that Aaron might reveal Simone as his sister if he became desperate. So, she gasped and said, “Oh no, my dish. It’s going to burn.” She grabbed Aaron’s hand and pulled him back into the kitchen. “Help me, bro.” As Simone watched Aaron leave, she clicked her tongue. “My, my, holding hands just because you’re going into the kitchen. You two really do love each other, don’t you?” The viewers noticed that Jodie had pulled Aaron back to the kitchen by his hand. They found it a little awkward. Adult siblings wouldn’t engage in such intimate gestures as holding hands. Leon grew up with Simone. He knew she was not weak, but she was being forceful about Aaron and Jodie, so he said, “That’s enough, Simone.” Simone looked at Leon coldly and replied in an equally cold tone, “They started it.” In the past, the Gray Family would always blame her regardless of who initiated the conflict. So, Leon thinks the same way.
No wonder he prioritized Jodie over me in my previous life. Simone had endured and tolerated a lot because of family, but now they meant nothing to her, so she wouldn’t tolerate anything. Leon never expected Simone to look at him with such indifference and coldness. It made him feel uneasy. He was about to tell her that he wasn’t blaming her and just wanted her to calm down when Zac intervened. “They started it, Leon. Anyone with eyes could see who was at fault just now. You can’t be blind, can you?” Even Zac found Aaron’s imperious and condescending tone towards Simone annoying. Yet, Leon, who grew up with Simone, actually took their side. No wonder she cut off all ties. with him. Leon frowned and glared at Zac. “You know nothing. You have no right to comment.” Aaron was Simone’s brother, so she shouldn’t have embarrassed him like that in front of everyone. Simone knew Leon too well and could guess what he was thinking. She sneered. “So, you’re saying that I should obey his orders like a slave instead of resisting? Do you think I owe them anything?” Leon could see her eyes growing colder, and he hesitated. “No, that’s not what I meant. I…” He wanted to say that she shouldn’t treat her brother that way, but then he remembered that Jodie had asked him. to keep Simone’s relation to them a secret before they came on the show. He swallowed his words and sighed. “Forget it. I didn’t mean anything. Don’t overthink it.” Simone remained composed. “I couldn’t care less, so why would I even bother thinking about it? You guys love to accuse me of things I never did.” She didn’t mind how Aaron and Leon treated her, but that didn’t give them the right to scold or boss her around. If they wanted to start a fight, they should be prepared for a counterattack. She wouldn’t tolerate it. Leon pursed his lips and glanced at Simone. He didn’t say anything else and retreated back into the kitchen. This wasn’t the right time or place for a conversation. He would find an opportunity to talk to Simone later. Leyla didn’t expect Simone to be so confrontational.
She called Aaron an idiot and silenced Leon right after. Either she was very brave or very foolish. Does she realize we’re live streaming? Or is she trying to gain attention this way? 2/3 Initially, Leyla wanted to defend Aaron to get closer to him, but when even Leon was shut down so easily, Leyla refrained from getting involved in the argument. She also went back into the kitchen. gone Eric and Keira were also taken aback by Simone’s attitude, but they found it satisfying. Aaron had too far. Simone wasn’t his servant, but then they realized that their relationship must be more than what met the eye. 11:59 Sun, 26 Nov Guw.
