Adrian frowned imperceptibly when he heard Caroline use such a formal form of address.
I’m here about yesterday.” Adrian started.
“Andrea said you wanted to sign with one of the female celebrities under Sorkin Group. Is that
Seeing that Adrian was talking about business, Caroline’s tense back finally relaxed. “It’s Sonia Norman This is the contract we’ve drafted. Please have a look.”
She continued, “As for the fee, we will use a new model. There will be a basic fee for her to become our ambassador, and then 10% of the profits. Is that alright?”
Caroline had checked Sonia’s other sponsorships. Sonia was paid a million dollars or more every year. With Evans Group’s current situation, every cent had to be spent well. Thus, Caroline had offered a fee of 800 thousand dollars and then profit sharing later on.
To Sorkin Group, this amount wouldn’t lose money, but it wouldn’t make money either. For business people, not making money amounted to a loss.
Hence, Caroline wasn’t confident that she could get this contract signed.
“Not a problem.” Adrian was very decisive.
“We’ll go with the amount you set.”
Caroline froze for a moment. She had been prepared to bargain with Adrian.
But Adrian quickly signed the contract and then looked up at Caroline. “Ms. Evans?”
Caroline came back to herself and looked at Adrian’s bold signature on the page. She hesitated for
a moment before saying, “Mr. Sørkin, can I ask you something?”
“What is it?”
“This amount is unfair to you, isn’t it?”
“Indeed, it is,” Adrian replied honestly.
After watching Caroline hesitate for a while, Adrian smiled.
“Before I case, Andrea already told me that I have to sign this contract, even if you don’t pay
anything. She said you helped her before, so this is her repaying the favor.”
Hearing that, Caroline’s heart returned to its rightful place.
Adrian also noticed the visible way Caroline relaxed and could guess why. A bitter look flashed in
Suddenly, he was glad that he hadn’t said what had been on his mind last night. Caroline had
already put distance between them before he said it. If he had, she might never see him again.
At that thought, Adrian pushed away the sadness he was feeling. He said, “Alright. If there’s
nothing else, I’ll take my leave now. My girlfriend is still waiting for me downstairs.”
Hearing about a girlfriend, Caroline froze for a moment before smiling. “Is it that woman you had a
blind date with before?”
Adrian wasn’t paying attention to what Caroline was saying at all. He was too focused on the way
her eyes lit up. It was as if she had had a burden lifted from her when she heard that he had a
It seemed that she really didn’t have feelings for him.
After finding this out, Adrian simply said something in answer and hurriedly escaped.
Watching Adrian leave, Cheryl said in admiration, “Seeing how quickly Mr. Sorkin is leaving, he
must really want to see his girlfriend fast. What a great man. Oh, I wonder when I’ll get a sweet
romance of my own.”
Caroline giggled and teased, “Ask Mr. Jack, and you’ll know!”
Cheryl’s face immediately turned red. “W–why?”
Caroline only laughed, not giving an answer.
Cheryl’s face became redder. “I’m ignoring you, Caroline.”
“You can’t ignore me.” Caroline passed the information on Sonia to Cheryl.
“Sonia Norman will be our brand ambassador Later, you will have to get into contact with her manager and use the company’s official social media to announce the news.”
Cheryl looked at Sonia’s information and said, “This actress doesn’t seem to be very popular.”
“Yes,” Caroline replied.
“But she has a new webseries airing soon. I’ve watched it. It might only have a small budget, but the story and costumes are decent.
“I can’t be sure that it will be a hit, but I think it will be quite popular. Sonia did especially well with her acting. She stands out in a small–budget webseries like this. She will be noticed by
Listening to all of Caroline’s logical points, Cheryl couldn’t help but say, “Caroline, what if … just what if … this webseries fails? Then wouldn’t our 800 thousand dollars go to waste?”
