Agnes never thought that a dude like Jared would be caught dead in the kitchen. Wasn’t a guy like him supposed to be all about takeouts and dining out?
But you had to hand it to him, watching him cook was a sight for sore eyes. Every move he made was like watching a masterpiece in the making.
Turning around, Jared caught Agnes in his‘ view. “Off to school?” he asked.
Agnes just nodded, almost robotically.
“Breakfast is ready. Eat before you go.” Jared suggested in the most nonchalant manner,
Thinking about last night’s events, Agnes was still down in the dumps.
She sat down silently and started on her breakfast.
The breakfast was the whole nine yards. Jared’s pancakes were to die for. But right now, all Agnes wanted to do was skedaddle out of there. So, she wolfed down her food hastily she burned her tongue.
Just as Jared was about to sit down, Agnes was already done. Dropping her fork, she announced, “I gotta jet. It’s the opening ceremony today, can’t be late.”
Jared could sense that something was off. Frowning, he asked, “Agnes, do you remember anything from last night?”
Acting all innocent, Agnes replied, “What happened last night? I don’t remember a thing.”
Jared’s eyes flickered for a moment before asking, “Do youjwant me to drop you off at school?”
“No need, it’s not far away, I can walk.”
With that, Agnes grabbed her backpack and bolted from the dining hall like a bat out of hell. She remembered all too well about last night, but it was too awkward to bring
The opening ceremony was over in no time and Agnes was officially a sophomore. In the afternoon, she was notified about a meeting at 3 pm by The Journalism Society.
Agnes was majoring in journalism, and Lakeside College was a well–known media university. The Journalism Society was one of the four major clubs in the school.
During the meeting, Agnes bumped into Jenny. She almost forgot that Jenny was now the vice president of The Journalism Society, a position that Agnes had bowed out from.
While the president, Lily, was running the meeting, Agnes was spacing out. She did hear something about The Journalism Society planning to start a new column called Big Shot, and they were discussing ideas for the first interview..
There were all sorts of suggestions. Some mentioned the school’s most popular med student hottie, Ryder. Some suggested the bad–boy hacker, Javier, an e–commerce student. Some even suggested the budding starlet Ava from the art department.
Amidst the lively discussion, Lily turned to Jenny and asked, “Jenny, any bright ideas?
Jenny replied, “If we want to make a splash with this column, our first interviewee has to be a big fish. We shouldn’t limit ourselves to the campus. I suggest we invite the youngest CEO of the Tim Group, Jared.”
The room went dead silent after Jenny’s suggestion..
Everyone knew who Jared was. He was this untouchable, big–shot figure. Reportedly, no media had ever successfully interviewed him.
Even Lily thought Jenny was shooting for the moon. Lily responded, “That’s a pipe dream, Jenny. Though Jared is one of the most influential figures in Willowbrook Town and a great fit for our magazine, he’s notoriously hard to get in touch with. Even mainstream media can’t land an interview with him, let alone us.”
Jenny retorted, “That’s exactly why we should try. What if we pulled it off? If we managed to get an exclusive interview with Jared, our Journalism Society would become the bee’s knees. Plus, we wouldn’t have to chase after people anymore, they would be lining up for us.”
Another member chimed in, “Easier said than done. Why on earth would Jared agree to our interview
Jenny, with a glint in her eyes, responded, “I think this task should be given to Agnes.”
