“Caroline,” came Sonia’s voice. She had come back with some food.
“I made it a bit bland, so I’m not sure if you’ll find it okay.”
Caroline had a few mouthfuls and praised, “It’s very good.”
“Really?” Sonia was overjoyed, her face lighting up.
“If you like it, there’s more.”
Caroline looked at Sonia without saying anything.
Sonia found this weird and asked in curiosity, “What is it, Caroline?”
Caroline asked her something back. “Do you remember the promise I made you?”
Sonia thought back on it for a little while before saying hesitantly, “Are you talking about when you said you would help me become an internationally famous actress?”
“Yes.” Caroline straightened.
She looked at Sonia and said, “Ms. Weiss is an internationally famous playwright. Her coming to Easton to find an actress for ‘Daughter of the Sea‘ is a good opportunity for you.”
Caroline waved her hand. “I’m sure you know that Daphne isn’t suited to this role. She doesn’t have the experience of being in theater.
“Unless Ms. Weiss doesn’t care about this script, she wouldn’t be silly enough to let Daphne be the leading female.”
She continued, “I’ve also looked it up. You were in theater, and your life experiences are very
similar to this character’s.
“I believe acting will come naturally to you when you have the same emotional journey. Your only
issue is Sarcozian. How’s your aptitude in the language?”
“I can communicate if necessary …” Sonia was forced to go along with Caroline.
“That won’t do.” Since they were talking about work, Caroline immediately became stern and
As she spoke, she clicked on a web browser and started a search. “Marietta will arrive in just one week. Memorize the script. You must be able to say the lines in Sarcozian. Will that be a problem?”
Hearing Caroline’s words, Sonia became invigorated. “No problem!”
“Good, then you better be off. Let me talk to your manager about the rest of it.”
Caroline watched as Sonia left excitedly. However, her own expression became twisted.
She had to admit that she wasn’t only helping Sonia get this role for the latter’s sake. She was doing this mostly for herself.
Daphne was Kirk’s woman, and Kirk was Eddy’s second uncle. Why could the Morrison family mess with everyone so thoroughly?
Was everyone expected to go along with it just because Daphne wanted the leading role of Daughter of the Sea“? What did the Morrisons think of the rest of the world? Were they just a bunch of nobodies?
No! Caroline wanted to show Eddy and Kirk that not everyone would lie down and be their playthings!
Caroline held on tightly to her sheets. Only then was she able to stop the way her whole body trembled.
Right then, on the opposite side of the planet, Avery was casually tasting some wine.
Beside her, Dolly shot her a look. “Avery, you seem to be in a good mood today.”
“Of course I am. You’ll be accompanying Marietta to Easton to audition for the lead female role. This is your first time working with a renowned playwright. I’m so happy for you.”
Avery swirled the wine in her glass. She looked at Dolly and smiled insincerely at her.
Dolly took a sip of wine. “It’s all thanks to you and your fervent support. Otherwise, I would never
have gotten the chance to work with Ms. Weiss.”
