Chapter 50 Collusion

I guess Shannon has a point…

I must be very lucky to have come across such an opportunity.

If my comic is well-drawn, I might become a famous cartoonist in this country.

After thinking about it, I realized it was quite possible for things to turn out far beyond what I could imagine.

Therefore, I entered into a contract with Flash and signed the non-disclosure agreement without hesitation.

If I disclosed any relevant news during the filming period, I would have to compensate the company. Besides, I had to keep the information about the comic confidential. They would only announce the simultaneous release of the drama and the comic when the drama premiered.

At the moment, they were making final preparations, and the filming was estimated to officially commence at the end of next month.

Luckily, I still had more than a month to settle things on my end.

First of all, I had to go home and inform my parents that I had divorced Julius.

Indeed, it was a wonderful day — my wishes were all coming true.

Shannon and I planned to have a celebration after signing the agreement, so we went to a café for a drink.

Suddenly, I received a message from Nicholas: I just finished my work and saw your message. Good to know that you’re fine.

I replied: Don’t worry! I get it. Look at you! You’ve been so busy. Take care and have a good rest!

He then responded: Why don’t you have dinner with me? It’s so pathetic to eat alone, and I’ll lose my appetite.

After reading his cheeky message, I could not help but chuckle.

Is he trying to act cute?

“Look at the silly smile on your face! Who are you chatting with?” Shannon stared at me with curiosity.

I raised my arm, beckoning her over. After she leaned toward me, I showed her my phone and whispered, “It’s your idol, Nicholas! He said he’ll lose his appetite if he has dinner alone.”

Immediately, I was rendered speechless when I saw the glint of excitement in her eyes. Shannon swooned at the sight of every attractive guy she saw.

Seeing that she was getting dizzy with excitement, I decided to change the subject matter at hand.

Then, I replied to Nicholas: Shannon and I are at a café along Bourbon Street. Do you want to join us for dinner?

Right away, he responded: Sure, wait for me!

I did not expect him to come over as it would be troublesome if others recognized him.

To avoid unnecessary trouble, I asked the boss for a private room. Once he got it prepared, I dragged Shannon to the room.

After two appetizers were served, a man wearing metal-framed glasses opened the door and walked into the room.

I blinked my eyes and stared at the man who looked like Nicholas. Is that him? Wait a minute… this man looks a bit different. That’s weird!

“I’ve disguised my appearance perfectly, haven’t I?” Instantly, I recognized that voice. It was indeed Nicholas.

I stared at him with my mouth wide open, surprised. I hadn’t actually expected him to show up.

How did he get here without being surrounded by his fans?

When celebrities go out, they normally wear caps, sunglasses, and masks, don’t they? He sure is bold!

“D-did anyone recognize you?” I stammered.

“I’m wearing makeup. Now, I’m just someone who looks like Nicholas Scott. Even if I walk in the crowd, they will only glance at me without realizing my real identity.”

He is really quite something to have come up with such an idea!

At that moment, a waitress came in to serve the food. Her attention was drawn to Nicholas immediately. Upon seeing her land her gaze on the man, my hands turned cold and clammy, whereas he remained calm.

“Mister, you look like my idol!” the waitress exclaimed with her voice trembling with excitement.

Nicholas smiled. “I know. Do you mean Nicholas Scott? Many friends have said that as well, but unfortunately, he is more handsome than me.”

Once again, his words set off a ripple of excitement within her. The waitress even began claiming that Nicholas was indeed the most handsome man.

Both Shannon and I were utterly dumbfounded. In fact, the former had been gaping at Nicholas in silence from the beginning.

He really was amazing.

The three of us enjoyed our dinner. Despite wanting to, I did not tell Nicholas I was going to draw the comic for “The Wind And Cloud” as I was supposed to keep things confidential.

Let’s see how it goes after I join the film crew.

The next day, after having inspected five houses, I decided to rent the one-bedroom apartment at North Park. It was big enough for me to live alone.

I paid for the rental and took the keys. Then, I headed back to Shannon’s place to get my stuff as I planned to move in that night.

When I was on my way, I received a call from Galaxy Entertainment.

Why are they calling me? Didn’t I settle everything?

“Ms. Zanetti, there’s something wrong with the contract we signed earlier. Do you mind coming over to our office for a discussion?”

Upon hearing that, my heart hammered in my chest. Could it be Dominic causing trouble for me after I’ve left him?

Huh, I haven’t even sued this b*stard for rape! How dare he play such a dirty trick!

After that night, I don’t think I owe him anything. If he dares to stir up trouble, I’ll definitely sue!

Still, I felt a little uneasy and wanted to find out more. “Well, what’s the problem? We dealt with it according to the normal procedures, didn’t we? Besides, there shouldn’t be any problem as the contract was drafted by your company.”

However, the person on the other end of the phone refused to reveal any further information, insisting that I come over to their office for a face-to-face discussion.

So, I had no choice but to ask the driver to send me to Galaxy Corporation, though I was reluctant.

After I arrived at the building, I walked into the lobby with my suitcase. Soon, a young lady in a white blouse and black pencil skirt approached me.

“Are you Ms. Zanetti? Please come with me.”

I felt unsettled as I could not figure out what had gone wrong with the contract. The fact that they had sent someone to wait for me in the lobby made me nervous.

That lady took me to a meeting room and then motioned me to go in.

Before I entered, I tidied myself up. I raked my fingers through my hair and retied a ponytail.

I thought there would be many people waiting for me in the meeting room. However, after I walked into the room, only one person was sitting at the center of the conference table.

Much to my surprise, it was Dominic.

As soon as I realized it was him, I immediately turned to reach for the doorknob.

D**n it, the door is locked!

“Why don’t you smash down the door and go out?” His grating voice came from behind.

I wished I could smash the door down, but there was only one chair in the huge meeting room, and he was sitting in it.

F*ck! He must have colluded with James.

These two are really evildoers. How dare they screw me over!

Since I was unable to escape, I could only stay away from him. Instantly, I let go of my suitcase and ran toward the corner farthest away from him.

Yet, the man did not seem to be in a hurry. Instead, he strolled toward me leisurely.

It left me no choice but to run to the other side of the room.

I kept running, and he trailed after me slowly. In the end, I was drenched in sweat in the air-conditioned room, whereas he was well dressed, looking happy and contented.

I felt as if I was about to burst from rage when I paused and turned to glare at him.

“What on earth do you want?”
