Mandy almost jumped. “What?!”

The other Jessops were starting to get annoyed with her antics, but Mandy’s eyes went red right after her call with her manager ended.

She had been drifting along the lines of becoming a B-list actress and that TV series was supposed to solidify her status as one!

“What now?” Kyle asked impatiently.

“My manager called me, saying that the investors want another actress for my role.”

Kyle frowned. “If I remember correctly, it’s Windmill Pictures, which is owned by Levine Ventures, isn’t it? Did you upset anyone from their family?”

“No way! I don’t even know them!” Mandy quickly denied it, and cried in agitation, “I don’t care what it takes, Kyle—get that role for me! It’s important for my career!”

Kyle was puzzled too—casting choices would not be changed once decided.

Still, he suddenly remembered a little detail.

“I heard that Bob Davis and John Levine were childhood friends, and that they remained very good friends although John usually stays abroad. Maybe Bob asked for John’s help to harass you…”

“Bob is so despicable!” Mandy snarled viciously, not doubting Kyle’s words at all.

“If you want the role, I suggest you talk to Bob… or go straight to John,” Kyle suggested then.

“What are you talking about?”

“Dad just said a few days ago, didn’t he, that John was interested in meeting you? Wouldn’t it be easy for you to get that role once you marry him?” Kyle explained.

“No way! I don’t want to be a baby mommy! Not in this lifetime!” Mandy promptly refused. “I’d rather talk to Bob than John!”

Kyle said nothing to that—his sister had been pampered since a child and no one could ever force her to do anything she did not like!
