Beatrice understood that Agnes‘ words were not trying to scare her
She did hire a stand–in, only to trip Agnes up during the press conference
However, this incident made Director Zoe very angry.
And Justin got hurt in the process too He wasn’t as easy to bully as Agnes. If he found out that she was the cause of his injury and hospitalization, coupled with how protective Justin was of Agnes….
Just like Agnes said, she might get kicked out of the crew.
Beatrice asked, “Agnes, what do you really want?”
Agnes replied, “I won’t say it yet, but I hold onto this secret. If you pull any more stunts, I assure you, your reputation in the entertainment industry will go down the drain”
“Agnes, you wouldn’t dare!”
“Just watch me!”
Beatnce was so angry that her fingernails dug deep into her palm, but finally turned away in her high heels.
From the side, Ava watched Agnes, thinking how foolish Beatrice was to think Agnes was a pushover.
At this moment, Agnes radiated power. Her grace and elegance were rare, and her upbringing made her stand out in an aristocratic way. Agnes was the true blue–blooded princess
At dusk, Agnes went to visit Justin in the hospital.
Justin was sitting on the bed, seeming lost in thought. He didn’t even react when Agnes knocked on the door.
Agnes walked in, and Justin turned his head to look at her, asking, “What do you want?”
Agnes asked. “Justin, are you mad at me?”
She could tell that ever since the press conference, Justin hadn’t spoken a word to her.
Justin replied, “Of course I’m pissed”
“Why? What did I do to offend you?*
“You getting married is one thing, but why the hell did you choose to marry Jared?”
If it were anyone else, he’d still have the confidence to compete, but Jared…
Agnes found it amusing. She could tell Justin was upset, but she didn’t expect it to be over this.
But she was marned. Who she married was none of his business.
Agnes walked over to Justin, and asked seriously. “Justin, do you have some beef with Jared? Is that why you’re taking it out on me? But he’s him, and I’m me.. Don’t take it out on me.”
Justin couldn’t be bothered explaining, so he turned away, no longer paying her any attention.
Agnes said, “Regardless, I want to thank you for stepping in during the press conference. Otherwise, it would be me in this hospital bed right now.”
Justin still didn’t say anything.
Feeling a bit awkward, Agnes rubbed the corner of her clothing. “Well, you rest up. I won’t bother you anymore.”
Just as she was about to leave, Justin suddenly said, “Agnes, is that all the thanks I get?”
Agnes was taken aback, “What do you want me to do?”
Justin said, “I’m planning to go to Verve Holiday Resort for a vacation tomorrow. Would you accompany me?”
Surprised, Agnes asked, “Why should I go with you?”
Justin replied, “Agnes, don’t forget. I got injured saving you. I even have a concussion. You helping me with my luggage, meals, and daily life, is that too much to ask?”
Agnes realized, he just needed a companion nurse
Agnes asked again, “Then why don’t you ask your agent, Sandy, or your assistant, Yvonne, to go with you?”
Justin replied, “Sandy is too busy, and Yvonne is too clumsy. If they were to come with me, would that even be a vacation?”
He then raised his voice, “Agnes, you just don’t want to, do you? I risked my life to save you, and you can’t even do this small thing in return. That’s disappointing…”
Agnes immediately said, “Fine, I’ll go with you”
Before Justin could finish his sentence, Agnes agreed
Justin’s way of talking was surprising. He actually said such sharp words out. Who knows what else he’ll say next.
Justin raised an eyebrow, seemingly in a better mood, “Then you go home and pack your luggage, we will set off tomorrow morning”
