Chapter 1507 What Goes Around Comes Around
“Leave first thing tomorrow morning,” Vincent ordered impassively. “And you can forget about joining my production.”
As soon as Vincent left, Hazel immediately grabbed onto Timmy, the assistant director. “Timmy, you have to help me out here! I’ve only made a mistake out of whim. Why can’t Director Cooper give me a break?!”
“It’s not that he doesn’t want to, but do you not realize whom you’ve messed with? Young Master Julian, of all people! And have you no clue who Jessie is to Young Master Julian?!”
“What do you mean?” Hazel asked apprehensively. “He led her into showbiz himself. She’s his. Whoever dares mess with her is just as good as messing with him! You’ve shot yourself in the foot this time.”
“Wait, Timmy, are you saying Young Master Julian is pursuing Silverstein?”
At that, Timmy leaned closer to Hazel and whispered, “Who’s to say if she’ll become the second young mistress of the Gilmore Family?! Good luck out there!”
Hazel’s face blanched in response, finally realizing whom she had screwed with. The newbie she had despised so much might possibly be the future Second Young Mistress of the Gilmore Family?! If Jessie really became the Second Young Mistress of the Gilmore Family, then her words would weigh a lot! Not to mention when she’d be banned from the industry instantly if Jessie gave the word!
“F*ck! H-How did I end up messing with such a powerful character?!” Hazel stomped in panic. Leaving this production wasn’t the worst possible scenario, but her entire career would be ruined because of her stupidity.
I have to apologize to her! mused Hazel as she pushed the conference room door open and hurried toward the elevator. She had to get to Jessie quickly.
She pressed the doorbell, but no one answered, so she had no choice but to wait at the door. I need to apologize, or I’m done for! Please, oh heavens, save me! She waited and waited, but to her dismay, the first to return was Lexie.
“Is there something I can do for you, Miss Hazel?”
“Lexie, is Jessie inside?”
“No. She’s gone out for dinner and hasn’t come back yet.”
“Do you know when she’ll be back then?”
“Should be soon. Do you want to come in?”
“Alright. I’ll wait for her inside. I have something pressing to talk to her about.”
Right then, Jessie was in the restaurant with Julian, who had received a call saying they had found out who the slanderer was.
“It’s Lestrange.” Julian snorted without mercy.
“Why would she do that?”
“Vincent said she’s not happy about the fact that she’s playing a supporting role to a newbie, which is you. So, she thought of pulling this scandal to have the fans hate on you, forcing Vincent to eventually replace you.
“Well, she sure pulled a harsh one.” Jessie had gotten a taste of showbiz’s darkness at this point. She didn’t do a single thing to Hazel at all, and yet the latter would pull such a nasty trick in the shadows.
Just then, she got a text from Lexie.
‘Jess, when will you be back? Hazel’s waiting for you in our room.”
At that, Jessie said to Julian, “Hazel’s waiting in my room now. She probably wants to apologize. Let’s go. I’m done eating.”
Julian nodded and accompanied her back to the hotel and even escorted her to her room. Jessie was seething with fury right then. As amiable as she was, she wouldn’t be nice to those who tried to bully her.
“Jessie! Jessie, you’re back!” Hazel ran up to Jessie as soon as she entered the room and found Julian right behind the latter.
At that, her smile instantly stiffened. “Y-Young Master Julian, you’re here too…”
“Lexie, please see our guest out. I’ve had a long day and would like to rest,” Jessie instructed Lexie and pretended as though she didn’t see Hazel.
Lexie, on the other hand, had learned of Hazel’s act from the production group chat. So, she naturally wouldn’t give a damn about the A-lister anymore. “Please leave, Miss Hazel.”
“Jessie, Young Master Julian, I’m sorry. Please give me a chance to apologize!” Hazel cried out anxiously.
“What goes around comes around,” Julian condemned. “Get out.”
