The Heiress’ Return & Revenge @51% Chapter 22 Jealousy Although his face was pale, a bright smile shone in his eyes. Looking at Simone, he said in a slightly hoarse voice, “Thank you!” She smiled at him and replied, “There’s no need to thank me. It was something I could do.” She had always had a good impression of this man. Not only was he one of the very few men who never tried to please Jodie, but he also had a genuine and open personality. Even when the reservoir’s gate was closed and the two kids were not in immediate danger, he chose to jump into the water and swim toward them, showing that he trusted what she was doing. Like her, he also did not want the two kids to be in danger, and at the same time, he had a compassionate heart. Seeing the smiles in their eyes and hearing their conversation, Leon felt an uncomfortable tightness in his chest.
He had wanted to reproach Simone for being so foolish as to risk her safety to save Zac; if she had not managed to rescue him, she might have lost her life as well. However, considering they were being live-streamed, he forcibly held his tongue. Otherwise, Zac’s fans would surely criticize him, while other viewers would also call him cold-blooded. So, he approached them, his expression full of concern as he looked at Simone, asking, “Simone, are you alright?” The smile in her eyes faded slightly. She shook her head and replied flatly, “Thank you for your concern, Mr. Foster. I’m fine.” Leon was left speechless as frustration filled his chest. He wanted to ask why she had to talk to him in such a cold and distant manner, but as they were being live-streamed, he had no choice but to keep it to himself. In the end, he managed to squeeze out the words. “Glad that you’re okay.” Aaron also wanted to reprove Simone, thinking she must have lost her mind to save Zac despite the danger. At the same time, he felt a pang of jealousy, but he also restrained himself as they were being live-streamed. Moreover, seeing her act so indifferent toward Leon, he stopped himself from approaching them to speak. Seeing that Simone was not only fine but also managed to rescue Zac, Jodie became extremely unhappy. At this rate, not only would Zac owe Simone a favor, but many viewers who were watching the livestream would see her in a different light. She would have to work even harder to do well after this, or else she would not be able to stand out in comparison to Simone.
After regaining some strength, Simone and Zac returned to the farmhouse. During this time, the live chat was lively once again. It was initially flooded with grateful comments. from Zac’s fans, with one of them saying, ‘Aaaaah! You’re so brave and cool, girl! I’m a fan now!’ Another commented, “Thank you, beautiful lady, for saving Zeus. I love you.’ “Thank you, pretty lady, for saving Zachy. I’m a fan now, too!’ ‘You were so cool just now, girl. I love you!’ Thanks to the incident, many of Zac’s fans began to like Simone and became her fans right away. Fans of the other guests and casual viewers also adored her and became fans of Simone. There were also numerous comments praising her. One wrote, ‘Girl, you’re my dear Simone from now 1/3 Chapter 22 Jealousy on.’ D Ah, I’m falling in love! Now I think I love Simone more than I love Zachy ‘Simone is amazing. She could tell someone’s child was in danger just by reading their face! ‘She’s truly incredible. And besides, she even predicted where the children would be in danger ‘Had she and Zac not jumped into the water in advance, the two kids would’ve been in danger Feeling displeased, fans of Aaron, Jodic, and Leon began to post insulting and sarcastic comments. One of them commented, “There’s no such thing as coincidence! I think the production team planned this in advance.’ Another chimed in, ‘I agree. How could she predict it so accurately? I don’t believe it, anyway! ‘Didn’t they say Simone had a sugar daddy? And Zac is from a prestigious family. This is a publicity stunt arranged especially for them. “The production team went to great lengths to promote these two. They even came up with such a publicity stunt, which is amazing. These comments left casual viewers and fans of the other guests astonished. One of them criticized, ‘Does your publicity stunt work like this? One wrong move and four lives would be at stake!” “This is being streamed live! Did your eyes stop working just now?” ‘Didn’t you see how intense and dangerous those moments were? Anyone with eyes can tell it wasn’t staged.’ ‘Why don’t you try acting out a scene based on this publicity stunt? If you can pull it off, I’ll eat my hat. ‘And besides, why can’t reading faces be amazing?” ‘Weren’t there several masters of mysticism who did live fortune-telling before?” ‘I’m speechless at these brainless fans. ‘Don’t you feel a pang of conscience belittling such a heroic act?’
‘In the eyes of these brainless fans, all they need to do is worship the people they idolize and ignore everything else. ‘Fans of Aaron, his sister, and Mr. Foster, this is enough. Even I, a casual viewer, can’t stand this anymore.”‘ “That’s right. It’s not like Simone and Zac desecrated the graves of the people they worship. Is it necessary to keep targeting them like this?’ ‘I find them annoying now, and it’s making me dislike those three as well. This time, it was not just Zac’s fans who disliked the trio; even fans of Eric and Keira, as well as casual viewers, were annoyed by these offensive comments. Naturally, the trio’s zealous fans refused to back 2/3 Chapter 22 Jealousy down, so they came into conflict again with casual viewers and fans of the other guests. Meanwhile, after Simone and Zac finished showering and getting dressed, Deuce and Uno brought their two mischievous kids to the farmhouse. They looked at Simone and Zac with gratitude, expressing, “We can’t thank both of you enough for what you did today.” They even wanted to bow to the duo to express their gratitude, but Simone stopped them in time. “Knowing that the two kids were in danger, we certainly wouldn’t have just stood by and done nothing when saving them was within our capabilities.” It was the second time she had used the phrase ‘within our capabilities’ today. Instead of turning people off, it made everyone think she was very down-to-earth. She saved lives without deliberately seeking credit for it. Deuce stressed gratefully. “No matter what, our families owe you two a huge favor.” If Simone hadn’t noticed something wrong with his appearance, rushed to the reservoir on time, and jumped into the water to save the children before they were in danger, he couldn’t bear to think about what might have happened to them. Uno nodded in agreement. “That’s right! We’ll always remember your kindness.” Both of their families had only one son, whom they cherished dearly. If their sons had been swept away and drowned in the reservoir, it would have been extremely difficult for their families to accept. Feeling indebted, they insisted on repaying Simone and Zac. They asked them what they wanted and were willing to offer anything within their means. Their sincerity made it difficult for Simone to refuse directly. So, she said, “In that case, how about treating us to a meal?” Initially, when she saw the distress on their faces, she had only wanted to save the children as quickly as possible and had no intention of accepting any repayment. It was only because she sensed their unease, as if they couldn’t live with themselves without repaying the favor, that she suggested they treat her and Zac to a meal.
However, Deuce proposed, “A single meal is not enough. How about this? While you’re filming in the village, you can come to my house for meals.” Still, he believed there must be a more appropriate way to repay the duo’s kindness. Uno hurriedly added, “You can come to my house for meals as well. All your meals during your stay here are on us.” Jonah was left speechless. If all their meals are covered, what will be left for the viewers? Fortunately, before he could intervene, Simone declined their offer with a wry smile, saying, “You don’t have to do this.” She suggested, “How about each of your families treats us to a meal instead?” However, the two men continued to warmly invite them, suggesting that they take turns dining at their homes in the following days. Finally, Jonah couldn’t help but interrupt, “We’re in the middle of filming. They can’t keep going to both of your houses for meals.”I will quickly upload a new chapters..share website with friends.. thanks
