Asher ran down the stairs and headed towards the door. His mother saw him leaving the house.
“Asher?” She called out. He stopped and turned to face his mother.
“Yes Mom” he replied.
“Why are you leaving so early? Your father isn’t awake yet” she asked, giving him a questioning look. Mr Grayson was known to be an expert when it comes to fashion and beauty. She was just a woman in her early 40’s.
“I know. Dad isn’t going to the company for now. I’m in charge and I have to proof to father that I’m capable of handling the company so that he could give it to me once and for all” he groaned. He so much wanted his father’s company.
“Okay? At least, have some breakfast”
“I’m good, bye!” He yelled as he passes through the door. He got to the car and went in. Hudson was already waiting for him. When Hudson saw him, he yawned tirelessly.
“Let’s go” Asher said.
“You didn’t let me have my beauty sleep” Hudson complained.
“No time for that. We have to work and show dad what I got” he said.
“Whatever!” He yelled.
“We have to interview some models today and I hope we find the one that can replace Thelma. Meanwhile, we have to breech the contract we have with her. Her time is up!”
“Oh yeah, Cora is coming back to the country today. Isn’t that great?”
“What’s your problem with Cora? Asher asked with a frown on his face. He didn’t like the fact that that Hudson kept on talking about Cora.
“Even if you don’t want my love, no one will yours”
“What are you talking about? I… I love you”
“Don’t lie to me! You are playing with my emotions and it have to end now”
“No, don’t pull the trigger. Don’t….argh!”
She pulled the trigger and slowly dropped the gun. She watched as her fiance bleed and fell on the floor.
She didn’t care about her actions. She turned and walked out of the room.
“Cut!!!!” The director yelled. Cora sighed. Finally she was done with the movie.
“Thank you miss Cora. We’ve come to the end of this movie…woah!” Everyone cheered, well except from Cora. She didn’t have any one to party with except from her manager, who was also her only friend.
“We have to go Cora” her manager, Tiffany walked towards her.
“Yeah, pack up. We’re leaving” Cora said and turned to leave.
“Miss Cora, it’s nice working with you. I hope we meet again” the director said.
“I hope so” she replied with a weird smile. She saw the other actresses glaring hard at her.
“We have a midnight party. You are highly invited”
“I’ll have to say no to that. I have to leave the country now” she said.
“Fine then, I won’t try to convince you, I know it’s no use. Good bye” he said.
She nodded and turned to leave. Everyone watched as she left the house. They were happy that Cora has gone, they didn’t want her here at all.
The butler at Mr Grayson’s house announced Mr Brooks presence.
“Let him in…” He said happily.
He bowed and left. Soon after, Mr Brooks walked into the house.
He shook hands with Mr Grayson and sat down.
“I can proudly say that you know the reason for my presence” Mr Brooks said. Mr Grayson nodded.
“Sure, I do. I’ve been waiting for this day, you know” he replied. Mr Brooks furrowed his eyebrows, trying to get why he said that. He then shook the thought off his head and focused on the reason for him being here.
“So, I’ve agreed to share the profit equally, if we become partners” Mr Brooks said.
“What no… There isn’t any need for that. All we just need is to become family”
“Yes, I know about your daughter. We’ve meet couple of times and I like her to get married to my son”
Mr Brooks was surprised. He never expected that.
“You know I can’t decided for my daughter” he said.
“I can’t decide for mine also. But if you want us to be partners, that’s the only way” he said and folded his legs. Mr Grayson was tired of his son being around women.
“Come on Brooks, what do you want to say? We’ve known each other for years now, what could be..”
“Fine, I’ll talk to her about it. Just talk to your son” he concluded. He knew his daughter wouldn’t accept to this silly offer.
“It’s nice having you here at my mansion. Come on, let’s play a game of golf before you leave…”
“What’s your name?”
“Yeah, I know you’re famous. I mean, what’s your name?”
“I just said I’m famous” she replied again. Asher dropped his pen and groaned in frustration.
“Woah, you’re really famous. I know that. Now, let’s forget how popular you are and talk about business. What is your name?” She asked.
“I’m famous!!!” She yelled.
Hudson bent over and whispered into Asher’s ear.
“Her name is famous…”
“Oh! I’m sorry. Miss famous. I didn’t know you’re famous, like named famous. I don’t like your name so I can’t give you this job” he said, smiling weirdly at her.
“What? I’ve been outside for…”
“Next!!” Asher yelled, calling the next model into his office. He didn’t want to waste any more time. He had three models to go. He had not choose anyone from the twenty seven.
Famous left the room. They watched as a hot model entered into the office. She flung her hair and sat on the couch. Another middle aged woman followed her behind. Asher stared at his friend and back at them.
“Hi… What’s your name?”
“She’s Rachel” the woman replied. The model just stared into his eyes sexily.
“So, how many years have you been a model?”
“Can I hear it from the lady?” Asher asked in annoyance.
“She’s mute” she replied. He groaned again and leaned back on his chair covering his face with his hand.
“What the… A pretty damsel, mute? That’s super bad. I’m sorry, I can’t give you this job” he said.
“But why? She’s perfect” the woman tried to convince him but Asher shook his head.
“No, I mean yes, she’s perfect. What if she’s asked to say.. this is a very good product that you should use at the end of the commercial, she can’t. I’m sorry.. next!” She yelled. Rachel stood up and smiled at him. She walked out of his office and the woman followed behind.
“She’s so perfect” Hudson said with pity in his eyes.
“I know right, f*cking her hard but you won’t hear a single moan”
“What?!” Asher rolled his eyes and stared at the angry bird that walked into his office.
She sat and stared angrily at Asper.
“Sorry… What’s your name?”
The girl scoffed and grinned her teeth. She glared hard at Asper again.
“Are you saying you don’t f*cking remember me?!” She yelled.
“Oh yeah, I don’t think we’ve met before or have we?” He asked.
“I’m the girl from the stake house” she said.
“I’ve met a lot of girls from the stake house” he said.
“I’m the one!” She yelled and banged her hands on the table.
Immediately, Asher remembered her. He stood up and hid behind Hudson. Hudson couldn’t protect him from the angry lady.
“What did you do to her?” He asked.
“I had s*x with her in my car and unknowingly left with her clothes”
“Are you crazy?!”
“It was a mistake. I didn’t know I left with her clothes” he said.
“Where did you keep her?”
“I forgot about her at the backseat and went into the house with her dress. The driver took the car for repairs and…” Before he could complete his sentence, she rushed at him but the security guards barged in first.
They grabbed her and left.
“I’ll come back for you Asher! Mark my words!” She yelled.
Asher sighed and went back to his seat.
“I have to go back home. I’m frustrated” he said.
“You have two more models”
“Tell them to come back on Monday. I have to go” he said and left.
He walked pass the models but didn’t stare at them. Hudson told them about Asher said and they groaned. They’ve been here for almost three hours.
Asher didn’t speak too much in the car. His father was right, he couldn’t handle woman.
“What are you thinking about Asher?”
“Dad. He was right about me not been able to control women”
“No, women are the ones that can’t control men” Hudson said.
“No, I just don’t know” he said calmly. He had never been this embarrassed in his life.
“What you need is a strong woman, way stronger than you” he said.
“Whatever dude. There’s no one stronger than me”
“So, hey guys I’m finally home. Can’t wait to see my mom and dad and my elder brother. I’ve missed them so f*cking much. It’s good to be back again. Bye guys!” Cora said and cut off the live video. She sighed and leaned back on the chair as the driver pulled over.
The butler opened the door for her. She wore her sunglasses and stepped down. Tiffany took off the jacket that was hanging on her shoulder. She stared round and flung her long straight hair to the back, exposing her flawless shoulder.
“Is mom in?” She asked with her expensive voice.
“Yes miss” he replied. She smiled at catwalked into the house.
“Get the luggage from the car” Tiffany said and ran after Cora.
