Chapter 125 If You Want To Hurt, Let’s Do It Together!
After hearing Titus‘ words, Jodie no longer paid attention to herself as she was extremely angry.
Titus was becoming more and more disrespectful; he even treated her like this in front of Steven.
As she felt unjust, she sat back down and tightly held onto her bracelet.
She wondered how she could regain his favor in the future.
Titus felt the pain in his chest and stomach intensified. He looked at Steven and said, “Dad, Master Gordon is quite cunning! After he finished helping us, I felt even more pain.”
As he saw his pale face and sweat on his forehead, Steven felt a bit sorry for his son, but this time, it could also teach his second son a lesson. He sighed. “Just endure it for now; let’s see how he is when he comes back.”
If the condition had not improved, the only solution was to locate Simone.
Titus had an urge to hit the wall. He thought for a moment and grabbed Luca’s hand to squeeze it tightly.
Since his younger brother had just been so despicable, he would fulfill his wish.
Luca didn’t expect Titus to be serious. He was stunned for a moment and then screamed in pain. “Ah, Titus! Be gentle!”
Titus not only didn’t go easy, but he exerted all his strength and vented his pain.
He almost dislocated Luca’s hand.
Luca screamed in pain and tried to shake off Titus‘ torment but couldn’t. So, he shouted to Steven, “Dad, do something about Titus. He wants to harm me.”
However, he only received a cold glance from Steven. “Wasn’t this what you asked for just now? Titus is just fulfilling your wish.”
He had never expected much from his third and fourth sons, Even if they were just idle playboys who only knew how to eat, drink, and have fun, they couldn’t be foolish enough to be led astray and not realize it or even foolish enough to not distinguish between family and outsiders.
Luca was speechless. His own father was biased.
He was angry, but he didn’t dare to show it in front of Steven.
He could only be tormented by Titus.
Freya couldn’t bear it any longer and took the initiative to ask Harold for the jade pendant, but Harold seemed to be asleep and didn’t respond.
As she felt embarrassed, she apologized to Steven and rushed out of the office in tears.
She went to the secretary outside to ask for an ice pack to put on her face.
After Freya left. Titus looked at Harold and said, “Harold, I didn’t expect you to be so heartless! You made the little beauty cry and run away.”
Only then did Harold open his eyes and say indifferently, “What does it have to do with me?” He glanced at Jodie, who still had tears in her eyes. “Didn’t you also make Jo cry? Look at how pitiful she is You didn’t even hug and comfort her.
If you want to hurt me, let’s do it together! Let’s see who can hurt the other one harder.
When Harold said this, the expressions on Titus and Jodie’s faces changed. They both looked at Steven. whose face became even uglier.
Titus released his foolish younger brother and went to pull Harold to his feet as he supported him with a hint of gritted teeth. “Come, let’s go to the restroom
Harold didn’t resist and informed Steven before they both left.
However, they didn’t go to the restroom; instead, they went to an empty balcony.
After they entered, Titus had a serious expression and asked, “What did you mean just now? Were you deliberately saying it for my father to hear?”
Harold saw the pain in his eyes and handed over the jade pendant he was holding. Take this to ease the pain first.”
Titus was momentarily stunned, but without hesitation, he took it and held it in his hand.
The pain did indeed alleviate significantly.
Harold said, “So, you know that your relationship is not normal at all?”
Titus frowned. “Still, you don’t have to mention it in front of my father deliberately.
The Gray brothers had been scolded by their father before because they were too close to Jodie.
Harold thought for a moment and decided to speak his mind. “This adopted daughter of your family is not simple. If you can see it clearly now, don’t get involved any further, or else your family will be ruined. I’m just reminding your father. After all, your two younger brothers seem to be enjoying it.”
No matter what, they had been childhood friends for so many years, and Harold didn’t want the Gray Family to be ruined because of this adopted daughter
Titus rubbed his temples and said, “Don’t mention those two idiots. I can’t stand them anymore.”
Harold raised an eyebrow. “Weren’t you also one of those idiots before?”
Titus was at a loss for words as he glared at Harold. “Can’t we have a decent conversation? Although I spoiled Jodie before, I haven’t reached the level of those two idiots.”
Because she was an adopted sister and not a blood relative, she was usually obedient and well–behaved. so he spoiled her like a beloved pet
Just like how he took care of a favorite pet.
When the pet was bullied, he, as the owner, would help, but now that he realized the pet wasn’t as well- behaved as he imagined, he withdrew quickly.
Harold felt waves of pain coming from his body. Unable to hold back his pain, he commented, “Your sister is really ruthless!”
Titus held the jade pendant and felt helpless. “Indeed, she has a bad temper now, and I can’t afford to provoke her! You deserve it, too. Instead of treating someone else badly, you had to treat her best friend badly.”
r own sister. No
Harold sneered. “I didn’t treat Gwen badly. You were the one who was harsh toward your wonder you two are blood siblings.”
Titus didn’t want to talk about this matter. If he had known it would turn out like this, he wouldn’t have treated his own sister that way for Jodie. He changed the subject and asked, That beautiful girl by your side, isn’t she just for fun?”
Harold retorted. “Do you think I’m as foolish as you and your brothers?”
Titus found no words to reply. This guy’s mouth is really annoying, as he always hits where it hurts. He chuckled. “Then, why did you hang around with Gwen for her?”
Harold helplessly said, “I didn’t hang around with Gwen.
Then, he added with a deeper meaning. “It’s just useful, that’s all.”
Titus playfully remarked, “Is it to warm the bed?”
Harold’s expression turned dark as he retorted, “Get lost. I don’t have such poor taste.”
Intrigued, Titus inquired, “Then, why is it useful?”
Harold gave him a disdainful look and replied, “It won’t do you good if you know too much.”
He then pulled out a cigarette and offered one to Titus before lighting the other one for himself.
Titus lit his cigarette as well. Observing Harold’s somber expression through the smoke, he detected a hint of hostility that he had never seen before.
He decided not to ask further.
The two of them smoked several cigarettes in succession before returning to the office together.
Before they entered the room, Titus handed the jade pendant back to Harold.
Upon their return, Freya had already arrived.
When she caught sight of Harold, aurace of resentment and hurt flickered in her eyes.
However, Harold did not acknowledge her presence.
After a while, Master Gordon brought an elderly man wearing a gray robe with him. He introduced him to Steven and the others, saying, “This is my senior. You can call him Master Shane.”
Steven and the others greeted him in turn.
Master Shane nodded and glanced at Titus and the others. He then took out a compass and instructed, “The four of you, place your hands on this compass.
Titus was the first to place his hand on the compass, which caused it to move slightly.
The other three followed suit.
Master Shane carefully examined the four of them. “It appears that you were affected by negative energy on the day of the injury. However, the negative energy dissipated from your bodies quickly, leaving no trace but causing you unbearable
Steven inquired, “Did you manage to detect the negative energy, Master Shane?”
Master Shane shook his head and replied, “No, I made the judgment based on my experience. He added meaningfully. “The geomancer who caused the negative energy is very cunning, leaving no evidence but inflicting excruciating pain.”
Titus asked, “Can you help us resolve it?”
He was not interested in anything else; he simply wanted to alleviate his suffering.
