Chapter 166 Giving It Back
Luca was suddenly overwhelmed with the urge to grab the cocktail glass and pour it over his younger brother’s head. He had never seen his brother behave like such a jerk. “This guy and that son of a b*tch, Zac Turner, seem more like real brothers.”
With so many people around and the live-streaming going on, he had no choice but to tolerate it. Grabbing the cocktail, he held his breath and downed it in one gulp.
Not only was it difficult to drink this time, but it also had a spicy kick to it. Quickly, he grabbed a bottle of mineral water from the table and drank half of it.
Jodie felt relieved when she saw her two brothers helping her share the cocktails and cast them a grateful look. “Thank you, Luca and Aaron!”
Aaron felt a strange sensation when she looked at him. Awkwardly, he smiled and said, “No need to thank us. You’re still on Luca’s side. If you guys get five glasses as a punishment later, I won’t be helping out anymore.”
It meant that if she had to drink five glasses of cocktails as punishment, he wouldn’t help her drink again. Helping her with two glasses was already the best he could do as an older brother.
If she could be as straightforward as Simone, she could completely refuse to accompany Luca, but he had a feeling that she wouldn’t refuse because she wanted to maintain her image as the little angel.
Sure enough, Jodie’s smile froze for a moment, but she said, “If neither of you will stand on Luca’s side, then as his sister, I’ll accompany him.”
At the same time, it was a pun. She meant that while both of them were his sisters, Simone not only didn’t accompany her real brother but also betrayed him. On the other hand, Jodie was an adopted sister, but she would stand by his side.
Meanwhile, she also had a lot of resentment toward Aaron. She could feel that since the end of the previous live variety show, Aaron hadn’t been as caring and considerate toward her as before and even seemed to be avoiding her at home.
She knew it was because of Leon and Simone. He thought she had deceived him, but she was innocent! He didn’t believe her, so she deliberately kept her distance from him.
In the past, he would have compromised first and pampered her. Now, he had hidden. meanings in his words, forcing her to make a choice, which made her very angry.
Aaron chuckled. “Well, you are Luca’s dear sister. I support you both!”
Reaching out, Luca hugged Jodie by her shoulders, deliberately saying, “My sister is the best!” When he finished speaking, he glanced at Simone. “Both are my sisters. Why can’t Simone learn a thing or two from Jo?”
Simone gave him a disdainful look, wondering what this se mbag was thinking.
What is Luca doing with my wife? My wife has already cut ties with you, thank you very much!
Luca disgusts me. Just hold onto your lover tightly and stay away from my wife!
‘Of course, she’ll stand by you. After all, she is your lover
‘Seems like Luca is quite familiar with this embracing gesture. He must have done it times before.”
‘Definitely, even Aaron confirmed that they are the closest,
‘Closest? I guess everyone can imagine.
Their relationship is not just about being siblings; it’s about showing affection.
Jojo is quite funny. She meant something else with what she said earlier!
My wife can’t pick up on this kind of thing. Having Jojo is enough for him.
“Yes, my wife won’t play along with them!
Simone’s fans were speechless as these two were intentionally showing affection in front of
their real sister.
Luckily, their wife, daughter, and granddaughter had cut off ties with people like them. Otherwise, they would be disgusted and sickened.
After seeing this, Gary immediately instructed the team to generate more buzz. Soon, Luca and Jodie Showing Affection became a hot topic, and they were criticized by netizens.
Meanwhile, Luca and Jodie made a bet on five drinks each. On the stage, half an hour had passed. When it was time, Harry turned off the video and stood up, signaling to a lady that he was ready.
To make a fair comparison, the lady played the video of Luca singing just now. Many viewers. who were watching the live broadcast also recorded the song and prepared to compare the performances of the two.
In the bar, the lady announced that it was starting. The lyrics were displayed on the big screen as usual, but this time it was muted.
Harry walked to the center with his guitar, and the people in the bar quieted down as they kept their eyes glued to Harry on the stage.
Calmly and coolly, Harry started singing, changing the melody of the first line. His voice was beautiful, more suitable for sentimental songs, so he instantly outshined Luca.
What was even more astonishing was that this song was written and sung by Reuben, but Harry infused it with emotions, which made it sound even better and captured the essence of the lyrics more than Luca. Furthermore, he made more changes to the song this time compared to the previous one. Each modification was a finishing touch, making it more suitable for him. It gave people the feeling that after this song was recomposed this way.
it sounded better indeed.
When he finished singing, everyone felt that he had taken the same song to a higher level. This time, even without Simone leading the applause, the customers in the bar spontaneously clapped.
Hearing the enthusiastic applause throughout the bar, Harry couldn’t help but turn teary- eyed. “I didn’t embarrass myself in front of the boss. I’ve proved myself.”
In addition, he had returned what Luca had given him before. Immediately, he looked toward Simone and saw a smile in her eyes, and she even gave him a thumbs up and said, “Well done!”
Another warm feeling surged through his heart. “It’s great to have such a manager,” he thought, and was even more grateful that he had chosen to switch companies. Not only did he prove himself to be a genius among geniuses, but he also surpassed Luca.
Luca’s face fell, and his eyes were filled with disbelief as he murmured, “How is this possible?”
His voice was not loud, but Simone heard it and said to him, “Luca, just because you can’t do it doesn’t mean it’s impossible.”
Actually, she could learn and adapt this song in half an hour as well, but she wouldn’t suggest performing it herself and stealing Harry’s thunder. This was his moment to prove himself, and she was happy and proud of him.
Luca gazed at Simone in astonishment, feeling both confused and hurt. She was his sister, so why did she keep hurting him?
Zac, noticing this, added, “Aaron and Jojo, your ten drinks have arrived.”
He had just asked the bartender for assistance in preparing ten drinks that were the most affordable, largest, and most challenging to consume.
At this moment, the bartender had finished making the drinks, and the waiter had brought
As they stared at the ten glasses of drinks with unusual colors on the table, both Luca anil Jodie rejected them in their hearts, thinking. “Can we simply choose not to drink them?”
Aaron smirked at Luca and commented, “Luca, Jo is your sister. How can she handle so much? Why don’t you help her finish them?”
By doing so, he would be returning the favor and allowing his brother to experience how it felt.
