Chapter 82 Within Her Expectations
Simone and Gwen were cooking in the apartment when she received a call from an unfamiliar number. She immediately knew it was Gary calling.
“Hello?” she answered, and Gary spoke. “It’s me, Miss Gray”
Simone asked, “Figured it out, eh?” Hearing Simone’s calm tone, Gary became even more convinced of her capabilities.
“Did you predict everything that happened tonight?”
Simone truthfully replied, “Well, not exactly. I only deduced from your demeanor that you attracted a streak of bad luck. Someone you trust has betrayed you, and thus person colluded with the misfortune. that befell you, Lalso deduced that tonight is the best opportunity for you to unravel the mystery and find the answers, hence my suggestion
She wasn’t a clairvoyant, so it was impossible for her to predict all the specific events that happened to Gary tonight.
However, she could roughly deduce certain things, such as Gary being cheated on by his wife and being betrayed by someone he trusted, and these individuals would continue to conspire against him.
Nonetheless, since they would become colleagues in the future and he was rather perceptive, there was no need to explicitly inform him about it.
Gary breathed a sigh of reliel. He had been deceived like a fool. His wife was sent to him by the other party, and he was made a cuckold.
It was too embarrassing, and he didn’t want his future superiors to know about it.
He asked, “Miss Gray, do you really want to retaliate again the Gray Family and peach the resources of the Gray Group?” He wanted to confirm it agam to strengthen his determination.
Simone replied, “Of course. Otherwise, why would I be poaching members of your team? The Gray Family are arrogant and intolerant of others. You’re way more capable than the new operations team, but you’ve been manipulated into doing menial work. I want to poach all of you and make our studio bigger and stronger in the future.”
She continued, “By then, people will think those brothers have no vision and are holding onto fake pearls, while I have a discerning eye. Not only will this make my studio stronger, but it will also humiliate the Grays, don’t you think? Eventually, they will start falling behind when competing for resources. Imagine the satisfaction of humiliating them! It will also make the shareholders of the Gray Group unhappy with Reuben, finding him incapable. If he can’t even manage an entertainment company, how is he supposed to take over the entirety of the Gray Group next time? So, Gary, are you willing to join my studio and help me take down the Grays?” After hearing Simone’s words, Gary knew she was serious and had thought this out..
It wasn’t just about taking down the Gray Family but also about bringing Reuben down from his position as the heir of the Gray Group. It had to be said that her words struck a chord with him.
He also wanted to teach the Grays and that new director a lesson; he wanted to let them know what

they were supporting and what kind of talent they were losing.
At this moment, he instantly felt a sense of camaraderie with Simone.
“Alright, as long as you’re determined to do what you just said, my team and I will join you.”
Simone smiled and said. “Welcome, Mr. Gary and team.
“We should switch titles. From now on, you should call me Director Gary
Gary said. Then I should call you Director Gray.
They exchanged a few more pleasantries.
Gary added. There’s a problem, though. They’ve been eyeing the information and resources in my hands. If I jump ship with my team without handing those over the company probably won’t let us go.”
Otherwise, they wouldn’t have used such underhanded means to plot against him
“If I forcefully resign, the higher–ups at Gray Entertainment will most likely spread rumors in the industry, saying that we are incompetent and such. Then, they will blacklist us and make it difficult for us to survive in the industry. Furthermore, if they find out that we are going to your studio, they might target you as well”
Simone replied confidently. “Do you think I’m afraid! They wanted to wreck my career early on, but I managed to gain fame. As long as we have strong capabilities, we can just ignore their nonsense.”
Gary was initially taken aback, but the frustration in his chest lessened a bit. “You’re right.”
“So, should we just resign forcefully? Simone asked. “Since you’ve gotten your answer tonight, you must have obtained some leverage, right? Gary was not an impulsive person, so he most likely had some leverage.
This statement made Gary look at Simone with even more admiration.
She had everything under her control, which was impressive.
“Yes. I do have some leverage.
Simone suggested. Tomorrow, you should go directly to Reuben and show him what you’ve got. Blackmail him and say that if you can’t leave the company without a hitch, you will make it public
She added, “Seeing how you’re in charge of operations and PR, they wouldn’t dare let you do that. Reuben loves upholding a certain image. By doing this, you’d be able to leave with all those information and resources. They will come after you once you leave, but soon, they’ll realize that you’ve joined my studio. I won’t pay attention to them, so it’ll be useless. We can also give them a taste of their own medicine.
Gary thought about it and agreed.
He had been considering whether to release the recording.
However, he had his concerns, afraid that the Grays would hinder his and his team’s path.

Now that Simone wasn’t afraid, he had nothing to fear either.
At worst, it would be a failure, and he would start over.
To vent his frustrations, he was determined.
“Okay, I’ll pay Reuben a visit tomorrow.”
The two of them discussed the details of his resignation and parted ways.
Simone asked, “You’re probably familiar
With the company’s artists and have their information, right?” Gary replied, “To some extent, yes. What’s the matter?” Simone said, “Are we poaching them as well?” Now, he was thinking from the perspective of Simone’s studio.
Simone continued, “Yes, but not those who are already popular. They wouldn’t be willing to jump switch. We need to focus on developing the artists early on. We will poach those who have been abandoned, shelved, or suppressed but have potential.”
She added, “Just like your team, they’re talented but sitting on the bleachers. We will give them another chance, and they will surely soar.”
Gary was pleased with the idea, saying, “That’s fantastic. For now, hiring these artists won’t raise any suspicions from the Grays. I’ve already copied the information and resources from the computer. I’ll compile a list and send it to you once I get home. You can choose a few suitable ones and let me know. I will reach out to them before I leave and convince them to join us.”
This was also his way of showing loyalty to the studio. As long as Simone could protect them, he would remain loyal to her.
Simone smiled and replied, “Alright. Thank you, Gary
After ending the call, they added each other as friends on social media.
Gary smoked a few cigarettes in the car before heading home.
Upon arriving home, his mother brought up his wife and expressed concern about his safety when coming back late, urging him to pick her up.
Seeing that his son was already asleep, Gary made up his mind and played the recording for his mother.
He couldn’t let his mother be deceived any longer by that woman’s acting. It was better to face the pain now than to suffer for a prolonged period.
After listening to the recording, Gary’s mother was filled with anger, feeling like she was about to explode.
“Divorce her. You must divorce her immediately.”
Gary narrowed his eyes and declared, “Not only will I divorce her, but I will also make her pay the consequences[”
