Chapter 98 I’ll Take the Same Path as Him, Leaving Him No Way Out
Leon watched Gwen disappear through the doorway.
He sat on the ground once again, filled with pain.
The saying goes, “Belated affection is worth less than grass.
But he had always liked Simone. Otherwise, how could he have enticed her to approach and constantly rely on him when they were young?
Did he make a mistake?
The wine was kicked over, but the bottle didn’t break
He retrieved it, continued drinking, and drowned his sorrows in alcohol.
When Adam returned, Melinda caught him and complained to him.
He went upstairs to find Gwen, only to discover she was gone.
Seeing Leon’s room door open, he walked in and saw him in such a desolate state.
At the sight, Adam frowned. “Drinking won’t solve anything.”
Leon looked up. “Then, what can I do?”
The older man closed the door tightly and walked to his son’s side thereafter. He sighed, reached out, and patted Leon’s shoulder. “If you’re already in the game, you can’t run away. To break the deadlock, you need patience. You’re still too naive.”
Leon didn’t understand. “What do you mean?”
Seeing Leon so discouraged, Adam felt a little heartache. “Don’t be so devastated for the sake of a woman.”
Leon chuckled. “Isn’t that what you did for Mom I guess it runs in the family.”
Adam’s eyes deepened. I’m different from you.
What’s the use of regretting now after plotting before?” Leon looked at his father and asked, So, what should I do?”
Adam thought for a moment and said. There are only two paths now. Why don’t you give up and cut off all thoughts?”
Leon smiled bitterly. “If I could, why would I be in such pain?”
Then, the older man continued, “Then, pull yourself together and strive again to fight for it.”
pester her, or she’ll only dislike you more. When she needs support, go and her. Maybe you can move her and change her mind.”
The last sentence comforted Leon. “Alright. I’ll try my best.”
He suddenly asked, “Dad, you don’t want me to marry Jodie?”
Adam laughed. “Why would I let you marry Jodie? That’s your mother’s idea, not mine.”
Leon raised an eyebrow. “Aren’t you afraid that Mom will get angry when she finds out?” Adam returned the favor and did the same thing. Then, will you complain to her?” “No.” Leon laughed.
“Then, that’s settled,” Adam commented and patted Leon’s shoulder again. “Grow up.
After saying that, he didn’t stay any longer and turned around and left.
Leon had always been aware that Melinda had a clear bias towards Reuben.
He thought Adam also appeared to favor Reuben. But in reality, he didn’t treat him and Gwen poorly.
However, as he watched Adam’s diminishing figure now, he felt an indescribable sensation, as if he was becoming increasingly inscrutable.
On the other side, Gwen took the documents and returned to the studio.
She put them in the safe and went to Simone’s office.
Simone was checking the online trends at the moment.
When she saw the manipulation that came out earlier, she knew that Sc’mbag No. 2 wanted to provoke her relationship with Zac.
He also wanted to instigate a fight between their two fan bases.
However, Stinbag No. 2 clearly underestimated their fans.
When Gwen came in and saw Simone deep in thought, she smiled and asked, “What are you thinking about?”
Simone snapped back to reality and said, “I’m thinking about how to continue to provoke Sc*mbag No. 2.*
Gwen became excited when she heard this and asked, “How do you plan to provoke him?”
Simone’s current words definitely didn’t refer to counterattacking, so she replied, “Sc*mbag No. 2 has made a series of arrangements. The first arrangement was broken by Zac and his fans on their own. Sc*mbag No. 2 must be very unhappy about it and is holding back his anger. Then, he will continue with the second arrangement, using sock puppets to expose the fact that I signed with Fiona and provoke a backlash.”
She paused and continued, “Originally, I thought I would let him provoke and enjoy it for a while, but now I’ve changed my mind. I want to take the same path as him and leave him with no way out. I want him to realize that I anticipated his anticipation and make him furious.
Gwen agreed. “That’s a good idea. So, are you suggesting that we voluntarily expose this
“Exactly.” Simone knew that Gwen understood her.
“I will reveal it myself, rendering all their preparations useless. With his arrogance and the belief that everything was under his control, he will definitely be infuriated. Let him feel dejected and utterly frustrated.”
Gwen clapped her hands. “That’s a great idea!“,
Simone sent a message asking Mr. Wills and Fiona to come to the office.
After the two arrived, she explained her intentions.
Mr. Wills smiled and said, “This counterattack is good. It will definitely hit Titus hard.”
He had always been arrogant. If he found out that Simone anticipated his actions and acted first, he would definitely be angry and frustrated
Fiona saniled. Although I don’t understand all this, I think it’s more satisfying this way. I support it and will fully cooperate
Simone knew Titus habits and could roughly guess when he would have his team expose the matter. She told Fiona, Tomorrow morning, I will post an announcement on Facebook welcoming you to join the studio. You just need to reply to the announcement.
us will definitely send his sock puppets to cure, and your haters, especially those who
were misled before, will also come to curse. I will post another announcement, and you will
need to share it.
“After that. We need to worry about it. Just wait for the situation to escalate.” She smiled meaningfully. “Let the Gray Family spend money to buy hot searches and sock puppets to hype up our popularity.
“The hotter they hype, the more beneficial it is for you to turn the tables. We can save a lot of money on whitewashing operations. Then, we can invest it in Gray Entertainment and compete with them, making more profit. Perfect!”
Gwen laughed. “The Gray brothers will want to thank us later.”
Others couldn’t help but laugh, too. Simone really had a cunning move. They were looking forward to seeing the expressions of the Gray brothers when they found out. It must be exciting.
After discussing the next steps, Fiona and Mr. Wills left the office with smiles on their faces.
Gwen and Simone shared with each other the conversation they had overheard between Melinda and Leon.
Simone smiled and said, “You said what I wanted to say.”
It was not just “belated affection is worth less than grass. She did not care about it and did not mind either.
Leon and the others made their choices for various reasons, and once they made them, they couldn’t undo them.
Furthermore, there was still a past life connection between them. How could she forgive and forget in just one reunion?
Gwen said. “Because that’s what I believe.”
After that, she sighed again. “I really wish I could slap my past self right now.”
Simone put her arm around her shoulder and commented, “Who hasn’t fallen for a jerk when they were young? Just focus on the present and the future.”
Gwen nodded. “You’re right. I won’t slap myself anymore.” She touched her face and cherished it, saying. T’m so beautiful. It would be a shame to ruin it.”
Simone laughed. “Exactly
