No one had expected Sarn to walk away from it all,
so when he did, it shocked everyone, including Shandie
Even though he knew how big and profitable the movie would be, Sam refused to betray his principles for money,
It was no wonder he had a reputation for being tenacious and unrelenting.
Jerry had a moment of panic but soon regained his composure as he smiled at Shandie. “Please wait here. Let me persuade the director.”
Watching Sain leave had honestly terrified Shandie because unbeknownst to the people present, everything that she said had been a lie.
Even Vinson’s name card was a stolen item.
Nevertheless, Shandie coughed in response, determined to carry on with her act. Very well. FH wait for you”
Jerry finally caught up with Sam and tried, once again, to talk him out of quitting the movie.
Thankfully, he seemed to have changed his mind but still hoped to speak with Vinson to explain the situation
“Tve met Mr. Nightshire a couple of times, enough to know that he isn’t an unreasonable man. I dont want to put you in a spot either, Jerry, so get me his number, and I’ll talk to him myself.”
Oh gosh, I‘m just a producer Why would I have the muride of a prominent fique like Vinson Nightshire? Jerry was starting to panic again when he remembered Shandie’s card with Vinson’s number on it. “Okay, I’ll be right back with the number!”
After running back to the stage, Jerry approached Shandie and asked politely, “Miss, could you give Mr. Nightshire a call? Mr. Sleight would like to
Speak with him.”
Shandie became flustered at that sudden request. One call to Vinson was all it needed to expose her lies, and that was something she couldn’t allow to happen
The wheels in Shandie’s mind started turning as she thought of an idea
Vinson had no reason to help Shandie, but it would be a different story with Arielle. After all, Arielle had helped him before, and he owed her a favor
Shandie cleared her throat and handed the name card to Jerry. “Tell Mr. Nightshire that I’m Shannie and that I want to be in this movie. I also promise that I won’t let him down.”
At the rate things were progressing. Shandie had no choice but to take a garble.
She hoped Vinson knew that Arielle was Sannie, which sounded a lot like her own nickname, and that he would be willing to give Arielle a händ.
The call went through almost instantly, and a deep volce rang out from the other end. “Hello?”
“Hello, Mr. Nightshire!” Jerry said excitedly. “I’m the producer of the movie, Monsters in Jadeborough. Your friend, Ms. Shannie, is here for an audition and wants nothing more than to be in this movie. However, our director has some objections to casting her and would like to speak with you. Would that be all right?”
“Sannie?” Vinson asked in surprise.
I didn‘t know Arelle liked acting. There‘s clearly a lot more about her that I don‘t know
Despite that disappointment, the fact that Arielle Was willing to use his name card still made Vinson’s heart flutter with joy
On the other end of the call, Shandie was so nervous that her palms had started to sweat.
After a pause, Vinson continued, “I’m still in a meeting, so here’s what I propose. Have Sam pick a place to meet, and I’ll join him in an hour when my meeting’s over. I’ll talk to him then.”
“That’s brilliant! Thank you so much, Mr. Nightshire.”
After ending the call, Jerry gazed at Shandie, this time even more respectfully.
“Ms. Shannie, why don’t you head back first. MIL. inform you later of any news.”
“Sure,” Shandie replied before strutting out of the theater. She had to mask the excitement in her voice even though she was over the moon at how well her idea had panned out.
Shandie couldn’t believe that Vinson had agreed to help Arielle, and even though she was happy for herself, there was also a twinge of jealousy.
Never mind. Once I become famous, Vinson is going to notice and remember me. He‘ll forget about Arielle and only care for me. I have to be patient and take this slow.
An hour later, in a café opposite Midnight Theater, Sam and Vinson sat facing each other.
Sam decided to cut to the chase and spoke up. “Mr. Nightshire, I’ve met you twice before and know that you’re a reasonable man. So I’m going to be straightforward about this. Your friend has no talent for acting and doesn’t deserve to be in my movie. If we insist on casting her, the box office results and reviews will be severely affected.”
