Chapter 78 Poaching
After ending the call, Gwen
ego.” He indeed was the worst.
t next to Simone with a smile. “Well done! Sc’mbag No. 2 has an inflated
She smirked. “Insulting him alone won’t satisfy my anger. Not only do I want to make them angry, but I also want to poach their men.”
Gwen was surprised and asked excitedly, “Who exactly?”
Simone replied. The operations director of Gray Group, along with the team he leads. After Sembag No. I took over Gray Entertainment, Sembag No. 2 also joined the company as a manager. They didn’t like the original operations director, so they promoted their person,” she continued. “They even made a mistake and demoted the former director, Mr. Wills, to a supervisor, along with his team. Since they look down on them, we’ll take advantage of it
Gwen’s eyes lit up. “I like the sound of that. They underestimate them, but the demoted team will shine in our studio. By then, Sc’mbag No. 1 and No. 2 will be furious.”
Simone blinked. “That’s right.”
Of course, she wanted to poach their employees mainly because she had studied that operations team, who were indeed excellent.
Gwen decided to stop shopping for clothes. “Let’s end our shopping trip here today and start working.”
Simone stood up, and the two changed into their original clothes, purchasing everything they liked before. They left their address, and the mall would deliver the clothes to their home. Hand in hand, they walked to the car.
“Simone, where should we ambush them?”
She replied, “I found out that Mr. Wills has been picking up his kid from school every day recently, Let’s go to the school gate and meet him there.”
If they wanted to poach their men, they had to do it discreetly and could not openly go to their company. It would be detrimental if Sc*mbag No. 1 and No. 2 found out and intentionally hindered
Then, she mentioned an address.
Gwen turned on the navigation and drove out of the parking lot. “Simone, after we poach the operations team, should we get you an assistant?” she asked. “Then, we can recruit and discover more artists.” She was now filled with enthusiasm and wanted to achieve something with Simone.
Simone nodded. “Yes, I do need an assistant. I’ve been searching for one recently, but I haven’t found a suitable candidate. I’m not only an artist but also a part–time manager for artists, so I have high expectations for assistants. I just want to find a suitable candidate without wasting time and energy on constant changes.”
At that, Gwen pondered for a moment and said, “How about I recommend someone to you?”

Simone was interested and said. “Sure! Tell me about them. Gwen was someone she trusted.
Gwen replied, “I have a college classmate who used to be my roommate. We have a good relationship. Her mother was hospitalized due to illness before, and she took a leave of absence to take care of her for some time. Her boss was dissatisfied and wanted her to return to work, even assigning her many tasks to complete during her leave. As a result, she had no time to take care of her mother. And taking leave meant no salary. So, she was forced to resign.
“A few days ago, I saw in our group chat that she’s looking for a job. She’s trying to find a job that can advance her a few months salary because she needs the money for her mother’s surgery. But such jobs
hard to find. She’s capable. hardworking, meticulous, and not someone who talks too much. So, I think she’d be suitable to be your assistant.
She paused and continued. “She comes from a single–parent family. Her father passed away when she was young. Her mother never remarried for the sake of her and her younger sister. She works two jobs, one to repay the debt her father borrowed when he was ill and the other to support her and her sister’s education. She started working part–time in college to earn a living and reduce her mother’s burden. I’d stayed at her place for a few days. Although they aren’t wealthy, it is warm and full of love.”
Simone admired that warmth and motherly love. It was precious, and she hoped to preserve it. She thought for a moment and asked, “If she becomes my assistant, there may be times when she’ll get super busy or even have to leave Cebros. Can she handle that?”
Gwen replied. “Yes, she can. Her sister will graduate from college this year and has decided not to look for a job temporarily but to take care of their mother in the hospital. So, she’ll work and earn money for the surgery and medical expenses. She has work experience, so her salary will be much higher than that of a recent college graduate. The bond between the three of them is very strong”
She added, “She had a boyfriend before, and they almost got married. But then her mother suddenly fell ill, needing surgery and ongoing medical expenses. Her boyfriend and her family allowed her to send money to her mother every month, but she couldn’t quit her job and go back home to take care of her family. They wanted her sister to take care of her. Otherwise, they would postpone the wedding. They had been dating for several years, and she liked that guy. But after he made such a request, she broke up with him. So, besides her capability. I also highly value her character.”
Simone felt the same. “From what you’ve said. I think she’s great. Contact her and see if she’s willing to work for me. If we decide to hire her as an assistant, we’ll give her an advance salary.”
Gwen nodded. “Okay, I’ll contact her tonight.” She asked again. “For artist recruitment, should we poach from other entertainment companies or nurture unknown talents?”
Simone said meaningfully. “You tell me. Should we abandon and suppress the artists from Gray Entertainment or intentionally bring them over and cultivate their popularity?” She decided to sever ties with the Gray Family, and no matter what happened, she would never reconcile with them again.
Originally, for the sake of her favorite job and life, she wanted to work hard to make more people like her and cut ties with that family. However, to force her to submit. Sc*mbag No. 1 and No. 2 wanted to blacklist her in the industry.
Subsequently, they hired fake accounts to praise Jodie and criticize Simone on the variety show. This time, they went even further by constantly painting Jodie as the angel and launching attacks against

Had she not planned ahead and saved those photos, she would have been in a difficult situation. Additionally, Zac’s team was influential. Now, she was the one facing criticism and attacks all over the internet.
After being blacklisted, who would want to hire her? How would she be able to continue her career in the industry? This was cutting off her future path, which was simply too much. She did not want to have any further entanglements with them, but that did not mean she would allow them to bully and exploit her.
If everyone minded their own business, they could coexist peacefully. However, Sc’mbag No. I and No. 2 had caused her so much harm and wanted to destroy her future, so she had to retaliate.
Poaching artists, utilizing Gray Entertainment’s resources, and expanding her studio were some ways of seeking revenge. Those who could not make her popular and even intentionally suppressed and marginalized her would now flourish under her guidance.
Not only would it embarrass the Grays, but it would also make Sc’mbag No. 1 and No. 2 experience the bitter taste of regret after their failure.
Gray Entertainment was powerful, always attempting to blacklist and attack her, not allowing her to survive in the industry. If that was the case, she would take their place and bring Gray Entertainment down.
The one who had the last word was the winner.
