The Heiress‘ Return & Revenge
Chapter 48 She Would Show No Mercy
Before the crew members returned with the list of items, the child obediently stayed in Simone’s arms, playing with her bronze coins.
Simone asked Jonah how long it would take, and after he made his phone call, he replied, “They didn’t finish gathering materials in the town, so they went to the county. It should take about two hours to make the round trip.”
Then, Simone suggested, “Let’s go back to the courtyard to rehearse while we wait.”
Sitting here for over two hours is just a waste of time. In the meantime, Zac and the others also had the same thought. “Let’s head back, then.”
Simone returned the child to his mother. “Once I receive the materials, I’ll make the talisman and send it over.”
Ross‘ wife took the child from her and murmured, “That would be great. Thank you, Miss Gray.”
Then, she invited them by saying, “Don’t cook tonight and come by my house for dinner.”
“That’s a great idea,” Ross chimed in. “You must come to my house for dinner tonight.”
Then, he could ask her privately about the charge.
Simone turned to the other three. “Should we come over for dinner tonight?”
Zac smiled. “Sure. Looks like we don’t have to worry about dinner tonight as well. It seems being on the same team with you is the best. We have nothing to worry about.”
Eric smiled and teased, “We’re riding your wave of good luck again tonight.”
Keira agreed with them. That’s right! We’ll ride along with you and get a free meal.”
Receiving their agreement, Simone turned to Ross and his wife. “Thank you for your kind hospitality.”
The couple waved their hands hurriedly. “No worries. We’re very grateful to you.”
After exchanging a few pleasantries, Simone and her group prepared to leave.
When the child in Ross‘ wife’s arms saw Simone was about to leave, he suddenly changed from being obedient to throwing a fit and crying. “Peety! I want peety!”
As he was crying, he reached his arms out to Simone, clearly indicating he wanted her to hold him.
Seeing the child crying so pitifully, Simone picked him up, and the child immediately stopped crying. He held onto Simone’s neck and said, “Peety!”
Embarrassed, Ross‘ wife tried to take the child back. “Come here. I’ll carry you. The pretty lady will come over later.”
But the child held onto Simone tightly and said. “No. Want peety.”
Although he might be young, he felt comfortable around the pretty lady and wasn’t as afraid anymore. Moreover, the young woman was pretty, felt soft, and smelled fragrant. He liked her a lot.
At a loss for words, Ross wife inwardly chastised her son for choosing a pretty woman over his mother. She cocidn’t help but smile wryly and explain. “My son has always been selective with people. Normally, he won’t let anyone except his grandmother and us hold him. I didn’t expect him to become so attached to you.”
This had never happened before, and it showed that Simone was indeed skilled. It was said that children had a strong sixth sense.
Seeing this situation, Simone smiled and suggested. “Why don’t I take him back to play with us? I’ll send him back when we come over for dinner later.
With their son being so clingy, the couple couldn’t say no. “Alright, then. We’re sorry for the trouble, Miss Gray.
Deep down, however, they were happy to have Simone spend time with her son. Maybe their son could share some of her good fortune.
Therefore, Simone and the others returned to their home with a cute little child in tow.
When they returned, the other team had already returned from helping the villagers.
Today, Leon searched the village but didn’t find a suitable job, so he returned to the farmer’s house. where he had previously helped pack vegetables. That job wasn’t as tiring, and they could each receive thirty coins and get a free lunch.
The four of them were sitting in the courtyard drinking water when they saw Simone returning with the child in her arms. They were all a bit puzzledi
Aaron was intrigued and asked, “Is your job for today looking after a child?”
At the mention of looking after a child, he couldn’t help but recall the feeling of being dominated by that little rascal on his first day here.
In the meantime. Jodie seemed to recall that day as well. Seeing Simone with a smiling and well- behaved child in her arms, Jodie kept a composed expression, but she tightened her grip on her skirt. Why was it that when she took care of the child, he would cry and throw tantrums at every little thing? With Simone, however, it was a different story
Hearing Aaron’s question, the audience also recalled how Jodie had volunteered to take care of the children on her first day here.
‘Does anyone still remember the incident where Jojo made a well–behaved child cry?
“How could I not? The child’s grandmother even got upset and chased them away.
Judging by Aaron’s expression, he seems to have a phobia of naughty children.
“Well, the child was not naughty and was actually well–behaved before Jojo came over….
There is no harm without comparison.”
them! In Aaron’s and Jodie’s fans‘ words, children have the sharpest eyes.
Til The comment above is spot on!
Both Arron’s and Jodie’s fans dared not appear as they felt quite embarrassed.
Zac glanced at Aaron and said, “We didn’t take on a babysitting job.”
He arrogantly added, “This little cutie saw that Simone was pretty and kept clinging to her.”
When the child heard his words, he seemed to agree and held Simone’s neck. “Peety! Peety!”
Jodie was speechless. I can’t wait to get rid of this kid!
Meanwhile, Aaron didn’t expect such a reason, but he had to admit that his biological sister was indeed pretty, combining all the best features of their parents. Of course, the five of them didn’t look bad either.
He then asked, “Where in the village did you meet this child?”
“We didn’t meet him. This is the child Simone helped, Zac explained.
Puzzled, Aaron repeated, “She helped his child? What does he meant
Looking proud. Zac recounted what happened at Ross‘ home. “If it weren’t for Simone, this little cutic would still be crying in his mother’s arms right now. He even ditched his mother and insisted on sticking with Simone.”
Aaron was taken aback and gave Simone a complicated look. He had always known that his biological sister knew physiognomy and geomancy. After all, the old man who adopted her did this kind of work, but they never really took it seriously.
Back at the Gray Residence, Simone had previously assisted Aaron and Andrew with her expertise in geomancy. However, she used to believe that her knowledge in this field was limited.
The family was aware that Simone had studied geomancy in college, but they didn’t know what to make of it. They had assumed she was merely a casual enthusiast, but now it was evident that she possessed considerable skill in this area.
She had previously used physiognomy to save Deuce’s son, and now she was helping Deuce’s cousin’s son. This was not something an amateur could accomplish. It appeared that they had underestimated their biological sister.
Unable to contain his curiosity, he glanced at Simone and asked, “Why don’t you take a look at me?”
Simone found Sc*mbag No. 5 to be quite bothersome. He didn’t bother her when she was being kind to him at home, but now that she was ignoring him, he kept seeking her attention.
Therefore, she calmly declined. “There are three types of individuals in our line of work that we are unable to assess. You happen to fall into one of those categories, so please refrain from asking me again.”
Since Sc*mbag No. 5 had provoked her first, she would show him no mercy. She knew that given his
personality, he would undoubtedly want to uncover the truth. This way, she could provide the gossip- hungry crowd with more room for speculation and allow the paparazzi to find a direction to investigate for a story.
Meanwhile, Aaron didn’t anticipate Simone’s rejection. Just as Simone had predicted, he furrowed his brow and inquired, “Which three types of people? Can’t you be more straightforward?”
He clearly didn’t believe her words and thought she was being dismissive towards him.
