Jared and Justin were two completely different breeds.
Justin had a pretty face that blurred the line between genders, with a hint of allure hidden in his eyes. If he lived in ancient times, he’d be the kind of pretty boy that women
would swoon over
But Jared was a different story Jared’s face had a masculine edge and lacked those feminine touches, his looks were just right.
He was the guy who had perfect features, and when put together, he was simply stunning His every move made your heart race
All this time, Agnes seldom looked at Jared deeply because a single glance was enough to get her hooked.
Justin couldn’t hold a candle to a man like Jared
“So, who are you talking about?” Ava asked
Agnes stammered. She couldn’t utter Jared’s name.
Ava laughed, “See, you can’t even say it. There’s simply no man handsomer than Justin in this world, Agnes, I’m so jealous of you. You get to be his love interest in the show.”
Agnes replied. “Don’t you have plenty of scenes with him too? I remember there’s even a kissing scene.”
Ava seemed excited at the mention of this.
Her character was Angelina, the rich girl and childhood sweetheart of the male lead, Samie.
Although her character wasn’t exactly likable, she had plenty of romantic scenes with Samie, even a forceful kissing scene.
The thought of shooting a kissing scene with Justin got Ava all hyped up.
After a while, someone from the crew knocked on the door, saying that the director was taking the investors to dinner. They’d heard that the crew had managed to secure a 50 million investment in one go, solving their financial issues.
They wondered who the rich benefactor was
Agnes said, “Why would we go to a dinner hosted by the director for the bigwigs?“;
Ava chimed in, “It’s pretty standard. You’re new to the industry. You’ll get used to it. A lot of investors are just after the young stars, but as long as we keep our noses clean, we’re good. Come on, remember to drink lightly tonight, and not drinking at all definitely won’t do.”
The dinner was at a platinum suite in a six–star hotel.
Beatrice was there too, dressed to the nines. If you hadn’t known, you’d think she was going to some grand gala.
Agnes, on the other hand, was dressed casually, looking like a student.
When Agnes and the others arrived, the director and his group were already there. And the man sitting next to the director, chatting with him, was none other than Jared.
Agnes was stunned when she saw him.
Ava nudged Agnes, “I just heard the CEO of the Tim Group is the big shot who invested in this show. Look, normally everyone dodges these social events if they can, but today everyone’s all dolled up, there’s gonna be some drama tonight, everyone wants to marry him. Even if they don’t get far, a scandal with him would skyrocket their value in the showbiz.”
Agnes looked around
Sure enough, all eyes, intentionally or not, were on Jared. The girls were practically shooting lasers from their eyes.
Suddenly, Agnes felt like Jared was prey being targeted by a pack of hunters.
At that moment, Justin spotted Agnes, and quickly waved her over, “Agnes, come over here, sit next to me.”
Jared slowly lifted his head at that moment.
His gaze fell on Agnes. For some reason, Agnes felt a hint of coldness in his gaze.
