Chapter 236 Finally Arrived
The three of them immediately thought of Jodie while Andrew glanced at the table and realized that he had eaten a lot, but he still didn’t feel satisfied. “I don’t know what came over me today. I’m famished and want to eat.”
Luca said, “Stop eating. If you keep going, you’ll ruin your stomach.”
Although Andrew still had the desire to eat, he wasn’t as hungry as before. In addition, he was afraid of overeating and damaging his stomach, so he reluctantly put down the food. “Alright.” He yawned. “I’m so tired. I’m going upstairs to sleep.”
Titus noticed that his fourth brother was in a very bad state, looking completely listless, and couldn’t help but ask, “Did Jo come to see you tonight?”
Andrew was puzzled. “Yeah, why?”
Titus asked again, “She asked you for luck, and you gave it to her?”
Andrew was stunned. “How did you know?”
Titus wanted to facepalm. This idiot actually gave it to her. Looking at Andrew with a sympathetic gaze, he said, “Andrew, you’re on your own now.”
Luca and Aaron were relieved when they heard that Andrew had given it to her and said in unison, “Andrew, you’re on your own now.”
Otherwise, they didn’t know what else to say. No wonder Andrew’s behavior was so strange just now; he didn’t even feel satisfied after eating so much, and his overall state of mind also looked very poor. As it turned out, he had given his luck to Jodie, but both of them were shocked once again by how quickly she reacted and deeply realized that this thing was too mysterious, and so was Jodie.
They were waiting to see what would happen to Andrew after seven days.
Being stared at by his brothers with sympathetic and angry gazes and being told to fend for himself, Andrew didn’t know why, but he had a strange and uncomfortable feeling. Glaring at the three of them, he exclaimed, “Are you guys crazy? I’m fine. And also, what’s going on with you guys lately? Why are you all against Jo? Did Simone say something to you? Although we are partly responsible for Simone leaving, you can’t blame Jo for it. You guys-” He lectured the three of them seriously and meant to tell them not to blame Jodie and to continue treating her well.
Couldn’t be bothered to argue with him, Titus reckoned that nothing he said would make a difference since Andrew had already fallen into the trap. However, he didn’t want to hear these senseless words, so he immediately interrupted. “Okay, I’m sick, alright? I’m afraid my
illness will affect you and Jo, so I’ll move out tonight.” He didn’t dare to stay at home anymore, and Andrew happened to give him an excuse.
Luca and Aaron were speechless, thinking, Titus is so clever to find an excuse so quickly. Neither of them dared to stay at home as well. Although Jodie had taken Andrew’s luck, nobody knew if she would be satisfied and continue to target them.
Luca said, “I’m sick. I’ll also move out.”
Aaron chirped in, “I’m seriously ill. I’m moving out, too.”
When Andrew heard the three of them say this, he was speechless. “Are you serious?”
Titus nodded. “We can’t be more serious. Andrew, this family relies on you now.” After saying that, he ran away. Quickly, he packed up in his room and left, not wanting to stay at home for even a minute.
Luca and Aaron became anxious when they saw Titus running so fast, and Aaron said. “Andrew, Jo and this family rely on you.” After saying that, he left, too.
Luca patted Andrew’s shoulder and said, “It’s hard for you to bear it alone, but keep it up! Call us if you need anything.” After saying that, without waiting for Andrew to respond, he also left.
Seeing the three of them disappear one by one, Andrew thought to himself, These three really have something wrong with their heads. But he was too tired and exhausted to think about anything else, so he went back to his room and fell asleep.
Titus and Aaron packed up their things and left home as quickly as possible. Luca was delayed because he received a call from his agent. When he finished packing and was about. to leave with his suitcase, he ran into Jodie in the hallway, the latter humming a tune and in at good mood.
When Jodie found Luca alone, her eyes lit up, and she sweetly called out, “Luca, why are you. holding a suitcase?”
In the past, when she smiled like this, Luca would find her sweet and cute. But now, with the dim light in the hallway, it seemed eerie no matter how he looked at it, and he felt as if he was a delicious piece of meat.
Despite his nervousness, he maintained a normal expression on his face. “My agent called and asked me to record a song.”
Jodie said, “But you don’t have to move out for that, right?”
Luca smiled. “I need to go out for a few days to find some inspiration.”
Pushing her wheelchair, she glided toward him and looked up at him with a dependent look in her eyes. “Luca, I’ve been having a rough time lately, and you-”
She was no longer satisfied with one-third of Andrew’s luck. If she wanted to become popular by counterattacking in the next variety show, she needed even better luck. Since she ran into Luca alone, she wouldn’t hold back anymore.
As soon as he heard her speak, he had a feeling that she had come for him. Afraid that she might suddenly grab his hand or find an excuse to touch him, he immediately interrupted her before she could finish speaking.
Raising his hand to check the time, he casually said, “Jo, I’m sorry, but I have to rush to the airport now. It’s getting late, and if I delay any longer, I won’t be able to catch my flight. I’ll talk to you properly when I come back.”
After saying that, he quickly dragged his suitcase and ran off. It wasn’t until he drove out of the villa area that he finally breathed a sigh of relief. Earlier, he was almost scared to death.
As he drove into the city, his tense nerves finally relaxed. Finding a place to park, he then took out his phone, created a separate group, and added his second and fifth brothers to it. Then, he sent a voice message to the group, recounting what had just happened.
Both Titus and Aaron were relieved that they had escaped quickly. This time, Luca had reacted swiftly and fled before Jodie could make a move. Otherwise, they would have wasted. a precious amulet, and all of them felt as if they had narrowly escaped a catastrophe. Simultaneously, they couldn’t help but sympathize with Andrew and lit a row of candles in their hearts in his honor.
Meanwhile, Jodie had just realized that Luca had fled so quickly, which left her speechless.
What’s happening? Why did Titus and Luca react so strangely upon seeing me? Her expression darkened as she narrowed her eyes and thought to herself, You can run, but you can’t hide. I won’t let you escape my grasp.
In the following days, Titus and the other two did not return home. At the same time, Reuben went on a business trip with Steven while Salma was back at her parents’ house. Only Andrew, who needed to rest for most of the day to recover, and Jodie, who was slowly regaining her appearance but was tormented by her etiquette teacher every day, remained at home.
On this particular day, Simone was about to report to the film crew when two unexpected guests arrived at her house.
