From Omega to Luna
Chapter 71 The studio shooting
I didn’t blame Diana for opening the door for Jack. To be honest, I wasn’t surprised that he could find me so easily, after all, I knew all along that I couldn’t hide from him. And besides, even if I fire her and hire another person, how would I know if this person is sent by him again?. “Diana, I need to go to work now, could you put them in bed? You can stay in the guest room. ” I put on my jacket and said to her. “Of course, Katherine,” she smiled, and then walked to me and bowed, “I’m sorry for lying to you, but I promise you that I will take good care of them. “I believe you, Diana,” I tapped on her arm and asked: “Jack is their dad, I have no right to keep them all to myself. If you need to report back to him about the kids, that’s no problem. Closing the door, I took a deep breath. I couldn’t hide forever, and I knew that all along. So if Jack wanted Diana to watch me and the kids, than I would let it be. Right now I just hoped he could figure it out sooner and stop torturing himself…. Diamond City at night has a different kind of charm. I used to love the forest at night because it was always quiet and no one would disturb me. Whenever I feel sad and hopeless, I would hide in the woods by myself and look at the moon. When I close my eyes, I could only hear the wind, and sometimes the cool dew at night would wet the corners of my clothes. Sometimes I would run as hard as I can, and I didn’t need to care about the judgmental eyes of those in the pack. That was a much simpler time, lonely but pure. And the world I live in now is never that quiet again. I stood in the doorway of the studio and sighed softly. This is a filming location, Elaine will be shooting a commercial today, and I - her part-time assistant needed to serve her. Suddenly, the door was opened from inside, and I met a pair of pretty eyes. “You are late, Katherine Green,” Elaine grabbed my arm and pulled me in, and said in a low voice: “did you see the news, Athan went abroad, is that true?”
She had heavy makeup on her face, but it didn't make her look tacky at all, but instead showed her extravagant temperament. “I don’t know,” I shook my head and tried to get out of her hand “can I work now?”. “Your job is to take care of me!” she frowned and stared at me, “and now I need you to find out about Athan’s whereabouts!”. She was being so unreasonable, I didn’t bother to pay attention to her and was about to walk away when someone stopped me. "Katherine, hi, it's nice to see you again. " It was Elaine's agent Soo, she had a kind smile on her face: “you came just in time and I need your help. “I thought she works for me?” Elaine behind her said dissatisfiedly, "If she leaves, who will serve me?". “Don’t worry hon, I will just borrow her for a little while. ” Before Elaine could say anything, Soo dragged me away. "One of the models in our commercial today has taken a leave of absence, which originally did not affect the shooting, but the director requested a substitute, otherwise the shooting would not start. But Elain has other jobs later and we can’t wait for too long, so I was wondering if you could. “I’m sorry, Soo. I told you I don’t want to show my face on the camera. ” I interrupted her, “you should find someone else. “The director's casting is very strict, I believe you are the only one that will make him satisfied, you have great body and face. And don’t worry, we will only shoot you from your back,” Soo said sincerely, “I will pay you double, triple! Please help us…”. She was almost begging me, and I hesitated for a moment, then nodded. Triple pay, that’s one month’s rent…. Yet at the time if I had known what was going to happen in the near future, I don't think I would have said yes to her. It took almost five hours for the shoot to end, which is really absurd. I was supposed to be an assistant, but somehow I became a model. The director even kept complimenting me, saying that I was a natural beauty. "Honey, seriously, you should go professional," the director's voice was rough and deep, but his gait as he walked was incredibly alluring and sexy
"Thank you, but I'm not considering that at the moment," I politely declined. He shrugged regretfully, not pressing the matter further. After all, in this industry, they were not lacking in beautiful women. The opportunities I didn't want were naturally something countless others would strive for. However, at this moment, Soo pushed me from behind with force. "Katherine, aren't you in need of money? You know that doing an advertisement pays much more than your monthly salary as an assistant. I turned to look at her, intrigued. I asked, "How did you find Elaine?". She's a werewolf, and a powerful one at that. Why would she choose to become an actress?. Seeing that I had abruptly changed the topic, Soo didn't persist. She casually said, "I didn't find her, she came to me. So, Elaine chose to become an actress on her own. Then what's the reason?. After filming, I quickly took off that sexy dress and changed back to my own. After I walked out of the dressing room, I found Elaine smoking a cigarette waiting at the door. “Do you really having no idea where Athan is?” . Her beautiful lips were pursed together and she looked serious. "No, I don't. She looked at me thoughtfully, as if she was thinking whether what I said was true. After a while, she shrugged and said, "I thought you were so important to him, it seems that you are just another toy he played while he looks for his missing mate. Her words were so light, but they exploded in my ear like a bomb. Athan Buffay, he had a mate?
