The Heiress’ Return & Revenge D Chapter 21 Thankfully, They Were Rescued Deuce observed as the two celebrities swam towards the two children. He watched nervously, but refrained from impulsively jumping into the water. It was already too late for him to do so. All he could do now was pray for the safe return of the two kids, thanks to the efforts of the celebrities. Only then did he understand why Simone had immediately jumped into the reservoir upon arrival. She had predicted that the two children would soon be in danger. Now, the others also realized why she had taken the plunge and swam towards the children when they were not yet in danger. Jonah, who had been watching the live stream, immediately sensed that the situation was more complicated than it seemed when Simone dived into the water. He knew of her skills in physiognomy and other mystical arts. Thanks to her talisman, his wife had been saved from an accident before.
Therefore, he quickly called the head of the medical team they had brought along, instructing them to hurry to the scene and prepare for a rescue. However, when he saw Zac jump into the water as well, his expression turned to horror. “Why did this guy jump in too? If anything goes wrong, the show and I will be finished!” Thankfully, Simone and Zac swiftly reached the children before any accidents occurred. Simone arrived just in time to grab one of the kids when the current pulled them away. Zac followed a few seconds later, managing to seize the other child. After securing both kids, they swam towards the shore while the onlookers anxiously held their breath, watching their progress. Following Jonah’s instructions, the production team quickly snapped a tree branch from the surroundings. Simone swam towards the shore with the child in her arms. Waves crashed against her, and one wrong move could lead to their demise. However, she possessed physical strength and knew how to use it wisely. Despite the water pushing against them, she successfully reached the shore. She first pushed the child onto the coast, but just as she grabbed the tree branch offered by the crew members and was about to climb onto the shore, someone suddenly cried out, “Oh, no! Zac!” She turned and saw Zac, who had also pushed the other child ashore. However, the current grew stronger, and a huge wave engulfed him before he could grab the tree branch.
Without hesitation, Simone let go of the tree branch and swam towards him. Witnessing her sacrifice the chance to climb ashore and instead swim to save Zac, most people on the shore had only one thought. “Is she insane?” Aaron and the others, who had just arrived, also witnessed the scene. They had spent the entire morning searching and finally found a family that needed help picking fruit. Following the family to the orchard, they saw Simone running in a certain direction. Moments later, they saw Zac and others chasing after her. Sensing that something might have happened, they followed suit. When they arrived, they witnessed 1/3 Chapter 21 Thankfully, They Were Rescued @51%8 Simone and Zac pulling two children out of the reservoir. However, before they could fully comprehend the situation, Simone gave up the chance to climb ashore and turned to save Zac instead. “Simone!” Both Aaron and Leon’s expressions changed as they instinctively ran towards the shore. Jodie’s eyes darkened as she observed their strong and anxious reactions.
Deep down, she felt extremely displeased. She watched as Zac was swept away and disappeared into the water, while Simone dove in after him and could no longer be seen. “What an idiot she is! Risking her life to save someone else.” As water was released from the reservoir, the current became rapid and turbulent, threatening to wash the two away at any moment. “It would be nice if Simone drowned right away. I would no longer have to worry about her stealing my possessions and the love and care I receive. A person who should have been dead in the first place deserves such an end.” However, she concealed her true feelings and feigned deep concern. Meanwhile, after seeing Zac being dragged below the water’s surface, Simone also dove underwater. Visibility was poor, but she managed to discern the direction in which he was being carried. Following the current, she quickly swam to his side and grabbed him by the arm. However, the strong current swept them both towards the reservoir gate. Despite the challenging circumstances, Simone remained calm. She held her breath, gripping Zac’s arm with one hand while clutching the jade pendant around her neck with the other. This jade pendant was a mystical tool given to her by her mentor, possessing the power to ward off evil and bring good fortune. Soon, the jade pendant began to emit a glowing, flickering light, and an inexplicable phenomenon occurred. Suddenly, the water around them seemed to halt and no longer crashed against them. Seizing the opportunity, she swam to his side, wrapped her arm around his waist, and headed towards the shore. Although Zac’s eyes were tightly closed, he remained conscious. Initially, he had thought his impulsive actions would cost him his life. Being pulled further away by the current, he experienced a leg cramp at a critical moment. Unable to swim upward to save himself, he also choked on a considerable amount of water. Unable to breathe, he felt like he was going into shock. Just as he thought he might drown, a hand suddenly grabbed his arm. Soon after, he was held around the waist and pulled forward. “Am I being rescued?” If he could survive, he certainly did not want to die. At that moment, the people on the shore and the viewers of the live stream watched with bated breath. The live chat remained empty, as everyone was too nervous to type. Fans of Simone and Zac silently prayed in their hearts, desperately hoping that nothing unfortunate would happen to them. Even casual viewers and fans of the other guests wished for the duo’s safe return.
Despite their prayers, the swift/current and the reservoir’s depth posed a significant challenge. If the two were to disappear amidst, the waves, their chances of survival would be slim. At that very moment, a small number of Aaron, Jodie, and Leon’s fans harbored ill wishes towards the two. Just when everyone thought the two might be lost, Simone suddenly emerged from the water with Zac in her arms and swam towards the shore. 2/3 Witnessing this, the people on the shore and the livestream viewers couldn’t help but shout in excitement, while their fans were moved to the brink of tears. Then, a series of heart-pounding moments unfolded. Simone managed to swim closer to the shore with Zac in tow, only to be repeatedly swept back by the strong current. However, instead of giving up, she persevered and continued to swim against the waves. Finally, she succeeded in reaching the shore. Just as another powerful current came crashing towards them, she reached out and grabbed the outstretched tree branch held by the people. At that moment, the person on the other end of the tree branch hastily pulled them towards the shore with all their strength, quickly hauling them up. The majority of the onlookers, both present and those watching the livestream, let out a collective sigh of relief. Fortunately, they were saved! Once on the shore, Simone sat down, panting heavily. Despite her regular exercise routine, the struggle she had just endured had left her completely exhausted. On the other hand, Zac was in a semi-conscious state.
Luckily, the medical team had arrived by then and promptly administered first aid. Soon, he coughed up some water, choked a few times, and slowly opened his eyes. When he turned his head, he saw Simone sitting beside him, her hands resting on the ground, gazing at him. In that instant, his eyes revealed a hint of unprecedented tenderness. So, it was she who had risked her life to save him.
