Chapter 131 You Have No Idea?
Jodie expressed her desire to borrow a mystical tool from Melinda, so the two masters decided to leave promptly. Steven instructed his secretary to escort them out. Harold had already left, and Freya didn’t want to stay either. She wasn’t acquainted with Jodie and knew that Jodie couldn’t assist her in borrowing the mystical tool, so she left to find a solution on her own.
After everyone departed, Steven sat there silently. Jodie was in so much pain that she couldn’t bear it, so she made a phone call to Melinda in front of them.
Due to Steven’s presence, she refrained from saying anything negative about Simone in front of Melinda. However, she did mention the need for the mystical tool and requested Melinda to lend her one, a precious antique that could ward off bad luck.
Melinda readily agreed.
Observing Jodie and Melinda conversing so familiarly on the phone, Steven couldn’t help but furrow his brows slightly. He hadn’t forgotten that his biological daughter, Simone, and Leon were once a couple. According to online rumors, Simone and Leon broke up due to his ambiguous relationship with Jodie.
Steven had business dealings with Adam and would often meet up to play basketball or have a meal together. Their relationship was quite good. He had a favorable impression of Leon, so he had assumed that Simone’s relationship with him was fine.
Little did he know that not only did they break up, but it also became widely known
As a result, his impression of Leon plummeted. Now, seeing Jodie and Melinda, it seemed more like a mother–in–law and daughter–in–law relationship. This disgusted him. Not only did Jodie lead his son astray, but she also snatched Simone’s boyfriend, crossing a line for him.
If it weren’t for his plan to investigate the relationship between Jodie and Master Shane, he would want his wife to send her away now. Anyway, she was already an adult and could survive on her own outside of the Gray Family.
Witnessing his two wayward sons, Steven was furious. “I’ll be going on a business trip abroad. in a few days, and you two will accompany me.
Luca and Andrew were both taken aback. “Why should we go? company and had no interest in business.
They didn’t work in the
Steven responded coldly, “If I tell you to go, then go. Don’t bother asking why.” Then, he ushered them out, saying, “I still have some business to attend to. You can go back first.” He planned to keep his two sons away from Jodie for a while.
Luca and Andrew could only reluctantly say, “Yes.”
They helped Jodie up but didn’t dare to be too affectionate.
Jodie knew that Steven was displeased, and she also felt uncomfortable. She could only obediently smile and say, “Dad, since you’re busy, we’ll go now.”
Steven didn’t ignore her. Instead, he showed a gentle smile and uttered, “Go ahead, if you need anything, you can come find me. Naturally, he wouldn’t want Jodie to be wary of him.
Seeing him like this, Jodie couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief. “Okay”
After the others left, Steven called in his secretary and instructed him to investigate Jodie and Master Shane. After giving the instructions, he began working on some documents.
Meanwhile, Simone also turned off the surveillance video.
Gwen sighed. “He is quite cunning. He seems amiable to Jodie, but then he orders an investigation.” The speed of this change was something she couldn’t achieve.
Simone smiled. “If he didn’t have some tricks up his sleeve, he wouldn’t have been able to become the chairman of the Gray Group. He has also developed the Gray Group very successfully.”
Steven was the most astute member of the Gray Family and quite suspicious. Therefore, Jodie would surely be suspected by him. Gwen curiously asked, “Do you think there is a relationship between Jodie and those two masters?”
Simone replied, “There must be a connection.”
Gwen felt that the relationship between the three of them was not simple. Today’s performance seemed like a collaboration between Jodie and those two masters.
“Shall we also investigate their relationship? Gwen asked.
Simone shook her head. “Mr. Gray has already sent someone to investigate. If we investigate again, we might alert them. They will take action if they want to deal with me.”
This matter was too deep, and she didn’t want Gwen to get involved, as it would be very dangerous. She would use her means to investigate Jodie and those two masters.
Upon hearing this, Gwen gave up, saying, “Okay” She began downloading the transferred documents. “I know that detective. He sent me the things he found.”
While the document was still downloading, Gwen’s phone rang. Seeing the caller ID, she felt perplexed. “Melinda called me. It must not be anything good.”
Cu Hhapter 131 Yoave No idea?
Simone guessed, “Most likely, she wants to get the mystical tool from you and give it to Jodie
Gwen also realized this and found Melinda unreasonable. She put the call on speakerphone, saying, “What brings you to call me out of the blue today?”
Upon hearing Gwen’s sarcasm, Melinda was not pleased, but upon considering the purpose of her call, she had no choice but to accept it. She spoke gently, “I’m your mother. Can’t I show some concern for you?”
Gwen didn’t fall for it. “So, today is not a normal day as the sun rose from the west.”
Melinda was speechless. Knowing that a gentle approach wouldn’t work, she decided to get straight to the point. “I have something to discuss with you.”
Gwen lazily responded, “That’s right; just get to the point. There’s no need to pretend to be a loving mother. It’s disgusting.
Melinda was so angry that she stumbled back. “You!” She took a deep breath and softened her tone as much as possible. “We’re mother and daughter, Must we make it so tense?”
Gwen yawned. “Why is it so tense? Don’t you have any motives? Stop beating around the bush. If you have something to say, say it. If not, just hang up. I’m busy and don’t have time to engage in this mother–daughter drama with you. If you want to act, go find Skyler and Leon. They would be happy to play with you.”
If it weren’t for something important, Melinda would have ended the phone call. Gwen was heartless and cold, unlike a caring daughter, so she didn’t beat around the bush anymore. “I want to borrow an antique with auspicious energy from you. I’ll return it in two weeks.”
“I do have one.” Gwen deliberately dragged her tone. “But I won’t lend it to you.”
Melinda’s face changed. “Gwen, you’re going too far. Since what I said to you didn’t work, do I need your father to come and talk to you personally?” She knew she couldn’t control Gwen, so she brought up Adam.
Gwen wasn’t afraid. “Then, let him come find me. By then, I’ll have a good talk with Grandma and him. And while we’re at it, I’ll have Grandma invite you back to the mansion for a meal.”
Melinda choked. “You ungrateful daughter! You do want to anger me to death, don’t you?”
Gwen smiled. “Don’t worry, if you die of anger, I definitely won’t pray for you. To spare you from feeling disgusted, I also think it’s a waste of energy to pray for you.”
If it weren’t for Adam and her grandfather, she would have been harmed by Melinda’s family in the past.

This time, she could settle the old scores. Melinda didn’t expect Gwen to curse her, and she was so angry that she almost spat blood. Unable to hold back, she wanted to curse loudly. “Y You wicked-”
But before she could finish, Gwen hung up the phone.
This infuriated Melinda even more. She immediately called Steven to complain and hinted that he should ask Gwen for the mystical tool.
