Chapter 6 by I. MALCOM


In the private room that Brian booked, various dishes carpeted the table. But even with those mind-numbing meals, Eris didn’t have the appetite even for just a single bite. “Are you not feeling well?”. Brian looked at her with concern. She had been absent- minded since she came back from the bathroom. “No, no! Maybe it’s because of the jet lag that I don’t have any appetite right now. “Then, all the more that you have to eat something. You look thinner these days. Brian picked up some food for Eris and added with concern, “Even if you want to keep your figure, you have to eat! If you want to succeed and take your career even higher, you have to be in your best health all the time. But really, you don’t have to try hard in the entertainment industry. I can provide for you. “I want you to feel proud of me!”. Eris held Brian’s arm and continued coquettishly, ”. “I want everyone to know that Brian’s girlfriend is a successful woman. ” Heaving a deep sigh, Brian helplessly answered,. “Well…If that’s what you want, then I can’t really do something. Eris smiled sweetly in his arms, yet her thoughts were lingering on something else at the same time. Just now, when she went to the bathroom, she accidentally saw a woman who looked exactly like Wendy! The resemblance was uncanny! Her features and voice were exactly the same, but her temperament and build were totally different. The Wendy she knew wasn’t much into dressing up fancily, and she had always been thin. But the woman Eris met in the corridor was undeniably elegant and eloquent–—much like any A-list celebrities. She must be mistaken! It couldn’t be Wendy! She was already dead. Her mother threw that woman into the sea three years ago! Her remains would probably have been decayed already! ‘What the hell?! Why am I thinking of Wendy Finch?’ Eris cursed in her heart. Meanwhile, it was already completely dark when Wendy’s group finished their dinner. Roger drove her and Raymond to the house he rented for “Mommy, is this the city where you have lived for twenty years?”. “Yes, baby. Holding the little boy in her arms, Wendy gazed out of the window at the flashing neon lights and asked Raymond, “Do you like this city?”. “Yes, I do!”. “Oh? Why?”. “Because this is where mommy grew up. Wendy hugged the little boy and planted several kisses on his chubby cheeks. : How could her son be so cute and caring?! She must be so really blessed! Half an hour later and the car finally halted to a stop at a high-end residential area. Roger drove directly into it as he had the pass card. As the car slowly progressed inside, Wendy saw several guards patrolling the area with newly-built houses. For a moment, she was relieved to know that they were to stay in a secured community. The whole thing made Wendy realize how reli able Roger really was. In three days, she would go for an auditio n, and if successful, she would immediately start working, leaving Raymond home alone. As the community was so safe, she could rest assured that nothing terrible would happen to her son. After getting out of the car, Roger helped carry the luggage and led W endy and Raymond into the elevator

“The transportation here is very accessible. There is a bus station by the gate, and the shopping malls, supermarkets, and a hospital are very near. You won’t really have anythin g to worry about. ” Right after Roger said that, the elevator stopped on the 16th floor. The door opened, a nd he led the two t o one of the units. He took out t he key and op ened the door. As soon as Roger switc hed on the lights, the interior was revealed. Wendy could n’t be any m ore pleased. The apartment, which had two bed rooms and a living room, was sim ply draped with beige wallpaper. A chandelier, hanging by t he living room, shed brigh t lights on the grey sofa. At the center w as a white dini ng wooden table. Several shopping bags were stop on it, all of which were living neces sities Roger bought for their stay. Everything the y needed seeme d to be there. At the vestibule were sever al pairs of new slippers nea tly placed on the shoe rack. Wendy, who was holding Raymond in her arms, slowly s tepped foot inside, surveying the unit’s entirety wi th evident contentment in her eyes. ”Do you like it?” . “Yes, I like it so much!” . Feeling so thankful and touched, Wendy turned to face Ro ger and uttered, “Roger, thank you so much for this. I do n’t know how to repay you! Will marrying you be enough?” . “W end y!” . “W ha t?” . “If you could only sound any more sincere, then perhaps I’d believe you,” . Roger sneered, rolling his eyes ather . Wendy immediately raised a sheepis h smile and asked, “Am I not sincere?” . “Why don’t you ask your son that question?” . Roger turned to Raymond, who no w struggled out of his mother’s hands, and ran towards the sofa. After slumping on the soft couch, the young boy looked up at his mother and said, “Mommy, your smile is so fake. Instantly, Wendy was rendered speechless. And as the smile dissipated from her lips, she grabbed a pair of house slippers from the vestibules before walking into the living room. Wow! Even the size of the slippers fitt ed her feet perfectly! “I bought some food and drinks for you. There are also fruits in here. See if there is anything else you want. I’ll take you to the supermarket,” . Roger said, fol lowing her to t he living room. “No. No. You’ ve done enou gh already. Wendy sat down on the comfortable sofa, casu ally grabbing a pillow

Squinting her eyes, she sighed h appily and expressed, “It’s real ly nice to be so rich, isn’t it?” . “So, you have to mak e money and repay me as soon as you can!” . Roger te ased wit h a grin. Then, he threw a b ook at Wendy, who caught it quickly. “What’s this?”she a sked, looking at it, her brows furrowed. “You are not part of the crew yet, so you can’t get the script for now. According to some internal sources, this series plays close homage to the original work, so the script is almost exactly the same. You should read the original book f irst and get familiar with the character you are going to play. It will definitely help you with the audition later on. As soon as they started talk ing about acting, Wendy’s ey es instantly turned serious. Over the years, acting had not been only her hobby but also wh at she considered a livelihood. If she hadn’t made a living in t he US, she wouldn’t have been abl e to support herself and Raymond. Wendy quickly scanned t hrough the Story of Con cubine Ivanka the book. The character she was going to auditi on for was the third heroine and the second villain in the play, Lady Faye. She was a bea utiful imperi al concubine. When she became a member of the impe rial harem, she performed the pavane , which deeply attracted the emperor. Since then, s he had been f avored by him. And as if the character was really mean t for Wendy, Lady Faye’s character desc ription was so much like Wendy’s image. The more she read th e story, the more fa scinated she became. “Momm y? Mo mmy!” . “W ha t?” . The little boy, who had been trying to get his mother’s attention, looked helpless as he add ed, “Uncle Roger has called you several times. “Ah, I’m sorry . This book is too addicting. Sitting between We ndy and the little guy, Roger sighed. He then patted Raymond on the shoulder and said, “I t’s getting late. Go and take a shower. There are paj amas for you in the wardrobe of the second bedroom. The little boy looked at Wendy and then at Roger before leaving them i n the living room to take a shower. “Do you have someth ing to say to me?” W endy suddenly asked. Roger nodded and replied seriously, “You should be mentally prepared. The main he roine of this TV play has been decided. “Oh , ok ay. That had noth ing to do with her actually. Wendy wasn’t au ditioning for t hat role anyway. “The leading actr ess of this play… It’s Eris Finch. Upon hearing that name, Wendy’s fa ce suddenly froze
