Simone could sense that something had happened just by looking at Gwen’s expression. She asked. “Did you have an argument with him?”
Gwen shook her head. “It wasn’t really an argument.”
She looked relieved and said. “I suddenly realized something. After pursuing him for so many years. I haven’t captured his heart. It’s pointless
She shrugged. “So, I gave up.”
Simone was surprised. You really gave up this time? Are you willing to let go Gwen forced a smile that was uglier than crying. Tm willing. I truly gave up
“If you’re willing to let go of Leon, then I’m willing to let go of Harold”
She continued. “It was your inspiration that helped me make up my mind. Otherwise. I might have continued to waste my youth on him.”
That was the truth. She saw Simone break up with Leon and suddenly understood a lot of things
Simone agreed. “You’re right: why waste our youth on someone who isn’t worth it? I support you!
Gwen reached out and played with Simone’s fingertips, sighing Simone. I suddenly realized that our experiences are similar. You were abandoned by your family, and when you found your way back, they favored the adopted daughter. As for me, although I haven’t experienced abandonment, my parents don’t love me either. And we both have childhood sweethearts that we like. But these two people are both heartless individuals.”
Her eyes turned red, but she didn’t cry. “It seems like we’re a bit unlucky and miserable.”
Simone knew that Gwen must be feeling sad about letting go of Harold.
Just like in her previous life, she was betrayed by her family and Leon, and it broke her heart.
She held Gwen’s hand and squeezed it. “That was in the past. We’ll have a better future. It’s better to endure a short pain than a long one, and it’s better to feel pain early than late. It’s just family and men. If we don’t want them, we don’t need them.”
She continued, “Like the two of us. We’re not blood sisters, but we’re closer than blood sisters. And as for men, out with the old, in with the new. Just like that.”
Gwen nodded vigorously, “Yes, just like that. From now on, we’ll live completely for ourselves. To hell with family and men, we’ll leave them all behind.”
After saying that, she asked, “I feel like drinking. Do we have any alcohol at home?”
Simone shook her head. “No, we didn’t buy any.”
“How about I order takeout?” Gwen snapped her fingers, “Order, order, order!” Simone used her phone to order takeout.

status, there’s no need to be so bitter and slanderous.”
These words made Melinda so angry that she fell backward, her voice even louder and sharper. “Gwen. you wicked child. If you dare, learn from Simone and just leave the family. You and she really belong together, both lacking any manners.”
Simone heard this and looked at Gwen, who pointed to her own mouth. I want to speak, can I?
Gwen made an okay gesture to her.
Simone sarcastically said. “Mrs. Foster, you really have good manners, talking behind people’s backs like that. No wonder you re someone who can marry above your own league.”
She had met Gwen’s mother a few times, and the other woman never liked her.
Before returning to the Gray Family, she was with Leon and had encountered Gwen’s mother.
Leon introduced them to each other, and she was about to greet her.
Gwen’s mother glanced at her coldly, with an air of looking down on her as if she couldn’t measure up.
Simone was someone with dignity, so she naturally didn’t approach her.
She also put on a cold demeanor without even saying hello.
Gwen’s mother discreetly approached Leon and expressed her disapproval of Simone, urging him to end their relationship. Simone overheard the conversation and relayed the message to her.
Upon returning to the Gray Family, Gwen’s mother maintained a cordial relationship with Salma bur still harbored dislike toward her
In contrast, she displayed clear favonusm toward Jodie.
There were two instances when Gwen’s mother belittled Simone and made sarcastic remarks.
Perhaps she assumed Simone would endure it
Little did she know that Simone would stand up for herself, causing Gwen’s mother to be embarrassed. This only fueled her hatred toward Simone.
Of course, Simone didn’t like Gwen’s mother either.
It was evident that they couldn’t stand each other.
Therefore, there was no need to ask: Simone could have already anticipated the situation.
The pendant must have been given by Gwen’s mother to Leon, who then secretly passed it on to Jodie.
Gwen’s mother likely intended for Jodie to become her daughter–in–law.
On the other hand. Gwen’s mother was taken aback when Simone suddenly spoke up, which quickly turned into fury.
If Gwen wasn’t present, she would have been tempted to strangle this troublemaker.
She intentionally p
the call on speakerphone, allowing Simone to listen in on their conversation. Being mocked by Simone in this manner became unbearable for Gwen’s mother.
She sneered, “Did I say something wrong? Your words alone reveal your lack of refinement. I will have a serious conversation with your mother another day.”
Simone deliberately smiled and retorted. “Then you should hurry and have that conversation with your good friend, Salma. After all, I may have a mother, but I’m left to my own devices. I’m an unrefined woman, remember?”
Gwen’s mother didn’t anticipate Simone saying this and choked on her words. She quickly changed the subject, “Gwen, you have one hour to return, or else, don’t ever come back to the family.”
Gwen’s mother knew that Simone didn’t even show her respect when she was dating Leon, and she spoke to her rudely.
Now that she was in conflict with her second son, Simone wouldn’t show Melinda any respect.
She then directed all her anger toward Gwen.
