Beatrice turned and put the phone away.
Ava said, “You should delete that photo”
Beatrice retorted, “Stay out of my business with Agnes.”
Ava replied, “I can’t ignore it since I saw it. Agnes and I are friends.”
Beatrice smirked, “Friends? I think you are trying to please her. You used to be an artist in the studio, and I know you’ve always wanted to sign with Starlight International Group. If you think pleasing Agnes can sign you to Starlight International Group, then you might as well please me, Agnes has no place in our family at all.”
Ava said, “You’re underestimating me. Starlight International Group isn’t the only agency in the world 1, Ava, don’t need to suck up to anyone. If Agnes has no status in your house, why is she the lead actress in this play and you’re just a supporting actress?”
The words really angered Beatrice. Beatrice was too angry to speak, but an idea came to her suddenly.
Beatrice changed her tone. “Ava, i remember you auditioned for the lead role too before, didn’t you?”
Ava asked, “What do you want to say?”
Beatrice shared, “Here’s the truth. Agnes was shoved in there because this play was co–produced by my dad and Ivan. My dad wanted to get Agnes into the entertainment. industry, so he forced her into the lead role. In fact, you were the first in the audition, but because of Agnes, you could only play a supporting role.”
Ava said, “Don’t try to stir things up. I won’t believe you.”
Beatrice played innocent, “I’m not lying Doesn’t it seem odd? You and Agnes go to the same school, but she’s a journalism student. How did she suddenly get into acting, and as the lead? Anyone would find that hard to believe. Plus, she’s doing this play just to get close to Justin.”
The mention of Justin shocked Ava
Beatrice knew Ava had a crush on Justin because she once accidentally discovered a fan tattoo of Justin behind Ava’s ear.
Beatrice went on, “Did you know Agnes is a super fan of Justin? She doesn’t show it in public, but her room is filled with Justin’s posters. She’s doing this play just to get
close to him”
When Ava got back to the dorm, Agnes could tell something was off.
Agnes asked, “What’s wrong? You seem to be in bad mood”
Ava said, “Where did you go after work? I couldn’t find you”
Agnes replied, “Oh, I went to the food street for dinner. I forgot to tell you.”
Ava’s face changed slightly, “You’re saying you ate street food tonight?”
Agnes nodded, “Yes, grilled meat.”
Ava muttered, “I see.”
Then she climbed onto the upper bunk and lay down with her back to Agnes.
Agnes felt confused, her gut telling her Ava didn’t seem very happy
Agnes didn’t tell Ava she was with Justin, fearing it would upset her more.
Agnes knew Ava had feelings for Justin, but she didn’t ask or intentionally mention it..
Ava lay in bed, feeling restless.
Justin had just dropped her off in his Ferrari. They clearly had dinner together.
There’s no way Justin would eat at a street stall with her. Everyone knew Justin was very picky about his food. He never ate what the crew provides and always had his own chef cook for him
Agnes was obviously lying
It seemed what Beatrice said wasn’t all false. Ava clenched her fists under the covers.
