Chapter 49 She Did It On Purpose
Simone gave Aaron a meaningful look and asked, “Are you sure you want me to tell you?”
Aaror: nodded firmly. “Yes, I want to hear it.”
He wanted to see what excuse she would come up with to brush him off. What’s wrong with assessing her brother? It made him uncomfortable that she was refusing him every time.
Hearing Simone’s words, Jodie suddenly had a bad feeling and reached out to tug at Aaron’s sleeve, shaking her head to signal him not to ask further.
Simone noticed Jodie’s discreet actions.
Knowing how much Aaron doted on Jodie, he might actually drop the subject, so she preemptively. answered, “Alright, then. If you insist, I’ll satisfy your curiosity. First, I don’t assess close relatives. Second, I don’t assess colleagues, and third, I don’t assess myself.”
Jodie’s expression subtly paled, thinking that Simone must have done it on purpose. Since Aaron didn’t fit the second and third categories, it left only the first one.
Jodie regretted not stopping Aaron earlier but blamed him for persistently pestering Simone when she refused to assess him. Wasn’t that asking for trouble? Now, everyone would be surprised and curious about their relationship.
An idea emerged in her mind, and she casually reached for a peach from the table and started peeling it with a fruit knife.
As expected, apart from Zac, Leon, and Keira, who knew about their relationship, Eric, Leyla, and the others at the scene all looked shocked.
Leyla couldn’t help but ask in shock, “Are you guys related?”
But at that moment, Jodie suddenly yelled, “Ouch!”
Everyone turned to look at Jodie and saw that she had accidentally cut her index finger while peeling a peach, staining it red.
She looked at her finger in a way that seemed like she didn’t expect to cut herself and then cast a slightly distressed look at Aaron. “Aaron, my hand hurts.”
Upon seeing that, Aaron quickly took her injured finger and instinctively put it in his mouth to help stop the bleeding.
Meanwhile, Leon got up and went to the kitchen to fetch the pack of Band–Aids they hadn’t finished. from the cupboard. He gave it to Aaron. “Help her put this on.”
Only then did Aaron take Jodie’s finger out of his mouth and apply the Band–Aid for her.
With slightly teary eyes, Jodie said. “Thank you, Aaron.”
Then, she looked up at Leon and thanked him too. “Thank you, Mr. Foster.”
Leon smiled at her. “You’re welcome.”
Jodie continued in remorse, “It’s all my fault for not being careful. Now that it hurts so much, washing and cutting vegetables later will be inconvenient.”
She deliberately changed the topic.
Leon assured her. “Don’t worry about it. Since you injured your hand, you shouldn’t be cooking.
While Jodie’s actions now seemed like an accident, he felt she might have done it intentionally because that would allow her to evade Leyla’s question. He suggested, “Since we’re being paid in cash today, why don’t we find a family to share a meal with? We’ll pay them for the meal.”
Since Jodie didn’t want anyone to know about the relationship between Aaron and Simone, Leon decided to help her by diverting the conversation.
In the meantime. Jodie breathed a sigh of relief and felt slightly proud. Leon was helping her, which would surely annoy Simone.
She smiled sweetly at Leon and nodded. “That’s a good idea. It’ll be a chance for you all to try something different.”
Now, she wouldn’t have to work hard to cook dinner. More importantly, with this minor incident, the matter Simone brought up earlier could be temporarily set aside. Jodie didn’t want others in the entertainment industry and the audience to know she was Aaron’s adopted sister. It felt like her identity was being downplayed compared to Simone’s.
From the moment Jodie started to peel the peach. Simone had already guessed what she was up to. Not only did she not bring up the previous topic, but she also deliberately changed the subject. And so, Simone told Zac and the others. “You should rehearse with the children. The performance is
By doing so, she was leaving the audience curious and intrigued. Also, the more she behaved this way, the more it meant she didn’t want anything to do with Aaron. Once everyone found out the truth later, they would understand her actions.
Though Simone had realized Jodie’s wish, she hoped the latter wouldn’t regret it later. Of course, this also gave Se mbag No. 2 more material to work with.
As for the fact that Leon had helped Jodie, Simone would certainly feel puzzled and upset if it were in her
life. Also, she would be curious to know why he would choose to help and protect Jodie. But now, she didn’t even have the slightest curiosity or desire to find out.
On the other hand, Zac had also noticed the situation. Not only was Jodie changing the Simone as well, so he smiled and said, “Sure. Want to come and give us some pointers?”
- topic, but
Keeping a little mystery is more intriguing, isn’t it? Simone nodded with a smile. “Let’s go.”
The four then brought the children for rehearsals.
Although Eric was curious, he held back his urge to ask. He could see that both Simone and Jodie didn’t want to continue the topic.
Chapter 49 She Did It On Purpose.
On the other hand, Leyla wanted to get to the bottom of this. She didn’t believe that Jodie had accidentally cut herself. How could such a coincidence happen? Clearly. Jodie feared her questions would lead to Simone or Aaron revealing something important.
The mese she thought about it, the more she felt Simone and Aaron had a special relationship. Are the two of them related! Or is it something more intimate than that?
Leyla wanted to pull the conversation back to the topic to make Aaron reveal more about it. Just as she was about to speak, she raised her head and saw Leon giving her a warning gaze while holding his back to the camera.
Startled, Leyla didn’t expect Leon to be so protective over Jodie. Since she wanted to continue her career in the entertainment industry, she dared not offend Leon because he wasn’t just a great actor. It was rumored that he had a strong background. As a result, she could only swallow the words she was about to say.
‘Oh? Why aren’t they continuing?”
It’s so agonizing to leave the topic unfinished!”
“Why aren’t you guys answering Leyla’s question?”
‘Did Jojo do that on purpose?”
‘Her sudden act interrupted Leyla’s question.”
‘She must have done it on purpose. I saw it with my own eyes. She started peeling the peach after Simone listed the three people she couldn’t assess.
‘Out of the three options Simone mentioned, Aaron seems to be the only one who fits.
‘It’s highly likely that it’s the first option. I haven’t heard of Aaron being involved in geomancy.
‘Oh no! Does this mean Simone and Aaron are actually related by blood?”
“If you put it that way, doesn’t it also mean Simone and Jodie are related?‘
‘But Simone hasn’t shown any interest in either of them since the beginning of this show. In fact, she’s been quite distant.”
I’m really curious about the relationship between these three people. I want to know
“Being stuck here is so frustrating. This is the first time I’ve disliked Jojo so much.”
I believe these three are somehow connected, and it’s definitely a big secret. Otherwise, Jojo wouldn’t have accidentally cut herself
‘Can’t the paparazzi be more efficient? It’s been days, and they still haven’t uncovered the relationship between these three.”
“I want some gossip. Paparazzi, get on it!‘
Indeed, the paparazzi companies had been investigating Simone and Aaron’s relationship for the past

few days. However, they had been approaching it from the perspective of a potential romantic relationship between the two.

The Heiress‘ Return & Revenge
Chapter 50 Be Embarrassed Again
The audience and fans were filled with curiosity, speculating about Simone’s relationship with the siblings. The topic “What’s the Relationship Between Simone and Aaron?” quickly became popular. Many who hadn’t watched the show clicked in, intrigued by their curiosity.
They were then engulfed in a wave of curiosity and gossip. Previous rumors about Simone pursuing. Aaron for resources seemed to have some truth, but the dynamics on the show surprised everyone. Simone wasn’t clinging to Aaron or trying to cozy up to him; instead, she seemed dismissive and indifferent. In contrast, Aaron often sought out Simone, almost inviting her to hurt him.
However, instead of immediately assuming they were siblings, the viewers speculated that Simone might be a close relative of Aaron’s..
Meanwhile, in the Gray Residence, Salma and Steven attended another banquet while Luca stayed locked in the room writing songs. Andrew was busy arranging the setup for the new drama. This left only Reuben and Titus watching the livestream.
Titus scowled. “Aaron has really lost his mind.”
He just can’t stop seeking attention with Simone. Now, everyone’s speculating about their relationship.
Reuben furrowed his brows. “If someone uncovers Simone and Aaron’s true relationship, wouldn’t that be detrimental to jo?”
Titus nodded. “Exactly. Whether it’s in terms of identity or relationship, it wouldn’t be good for Jo. There have already been rumors suggesting that Aaron and Jo don’t seem like siblings but more like a couple. Their interactions in the livestream were too intimate. If they are indeed siblings, while it might be unconventional, people wouldn’t think too much of it. But if the true relationship between them is exposed, there’s a high chance some might start thinking in a more scandalous direction.”
He sighed. “This is my biggest concern.”
Reuben pondered for a moment. “How about we use some paid followers to spread the rumor that Simone is Aaron’s cousin? Let’s prevent people from finding out about their actual relationship. I’ve been watching the livestream, and Simone doesn’t seem inclined to reveal their relationship. As long as she remains silent, this issue can be resolved.”
He added, “After this episode of the variety show ends, let’s all treat her a bit more kindly and coax her back.”
Previously, he used to receive messages from Simone almost every day, like reminders to eat properly and not skip meals. When he worked long hours, she would send him messages to remind him to get
and move around. If he came home too tired, she would use her special techniques to give him a shoulder and back massage. It made him feel comfortable and relaxed. At first, he didn’t pay much attention and thought she was being too talkative with the messages. Now that he was no longer receiving those texts, he couldn’t get used to it. After working a day without getting Simone’s massage when he came home, he felt uncomfortable all over. The next day, he woke up feeling tired, unlike before when he would wake up refreshed.
Titus agreed. “Alright, once the variety show ends, let’s give her an escape route. She has a recording of the day she left the Gray Family. It would be best to coax her into deleting it when she returns.
