THE RECORD LABEL TYCOON

[NARRATED]


Justin is walking the yard with a frowning face followed by gracelyn who was begging him to listen to her but Justin seemed to be fed up


Gracelyn: "please Justin l am Begging you let's go back"


Justin: "gracelyn..we only made R178 and we are not even half way to R500 the money is needed today before 12:00 and now it's 10:30"


Gracelyn: "l know..."


Justin: "no you don't"


Gracelyn: "No l know...l know how we will raise funds"


Justin: "and how are we going to raise funds"


Gracelyn: "take your guitar and drums and bowl..you are going to perform in town people will throw coins they have"


Justin: "and you think it will reach R500"


Gracelyn: "it's worth a try  go"


Gracelyn said then walked to the hut and took the bowl...just followed then took a guitar together with a drum


Gracelyn: "as much as l wanna go with you..you know l have reasons not to be in town..good luck"


Justin Nodded and departed the hut


[NARRATED]


Just as anyone is expected to have a cup of tea in the morning...Mr James is having a bottle of whiskey and that must be a red flag to anyone Normal


Yes a glass is not a big deal but who finishes the whole bottle right in the morning


The well dressed Chloe appeared and approached her dad


Chloe: "Dad"


Hector: "What?"


Chloe: "Do you think what you are doing its a right thing to do?.. overdosing alcohol?


Hector: "You wouldn't understand what can gracelyn cost us and l am plotting a plan on how to deal with this all alone whilst you are enjoying yourself at the so called auditions"


Chloe: "That's harsh and you didn't have to dwell much on detail dad"


Hector: "l was trying to put you on my shoes"


He said then stood up and took his leave


Chloe: "well l am also off old man"


Chloe said then left


[NARRATED]


Justin went to perform in town and Gracelyn's plan seemed to be working on his favour


Justin completed the amount needed and more but in enjoyment of the performance he lost track of time


He was expected to register his contesting number by 12:00 and when he checks the time it's 13:00


He ran like a racing horse but by the time he arrived at the auditioning location his ticket was already suspended and the only choice he had was to que and start every auditioning process from scratch...


Justin gave up the process and thought going to the mall to buy flowers for gracelyn will make the matters better


He bought a bunch of flowers.. immediately after he departed the store he got a place then sat down an wrote a message on how gracelyn completes him


[NARRATED]


As much as stressed Hector was he knew that if gracelyn can say a thing about the way he operates it is indeed the end of him


Not only he will be arrested and ruin his reputation..his house and cars will be repossessed and his bank accounts will be frozen as he is gonna be sued


Thinking about all that he decided to visit the radio station and says a piece of him


Gracelyn was waiting for Justin to come back bearing good news for him when she suddenly finds herself listening to Hector's interview


"It's is indeed the lovely evening for all of us but l must say it's a bad one for Chloe...l must say also say jealousy is indeed a terrible disease..we pray for people to heal from it..this morning Mr James who happens to be Chloe's dad and the record label tycoon shared news about the hospitalisation of Chloe after their housekeeper poisoned Chloe and escaped..the tycoon also released a statement that states that if anyone can find gracelyn and bring her to him then those people will have a million in their pockets"


Gracelyn didn't even bother to listen to the rest she took a piece of a paper and a pen and wrote a note and after that she stormed out of the hut


[NARRATED]


It's few minutes after the auditions came to an end and most of the crew members left 


Chloe was busy pressing of her phone when one of the judges approach her


Judge: "Chloe"


Chloe: "Darling how are you..l am sorry l arrived late and we didn't have a chance to greet each other"


Judge: "That's not anything to worry about..l am glad our job was easier than l expected"


Chloe chuckles...


Chloe: "it was the fear of the unknown and you are better because you have experience..unlike me l am being a judge for the first time in my life"


They both share a laughter


Judge: "Trust me..you are good at this and l will forever remember these auditions..they are for a lifetime..l cried and laughed and enjoyed


Chloe: "l am glad you did"


Judge: "Thank you for the Hospitality and l hope we wil meet again"


Chloe: "we shall"


They hugged and each and broke it...then the judge left


After the judge left...one of the stars from the record Label owned by Hector (incredible Jay) stormed in and gave Chloe a glance without a word


Chloe: "should l ask what's wrong or you will tell me?"


Incredible Jay: "No...you explain what exactly your father is up to"


Chloe: "What my father is up to..about what exactly?"


Incredible Jay: "oh so you haven't heard the statement your father released?"


Chloe: "what statement Jay?"


Incredible Jay: "oh so you don't know?...well he mentioned something like you being hospitalized because gracelyn poisoned you for no reason and everyone believes that it's out of jealous"


Chloe: "what?"


Incredible Jay: "He also offered a reward of a million to whoever who will find gracelyn"


Chloe: "No he didn't"


Chloe says in denial...


Incredible Jay: "so funny l thought l am the only one who doesn't understand your dad but seems like l ain't on my own...Chloe something doesn't make sense here.. according to the information l know.. gracelyn is sent to the music school and all of the sudden she is wanted after poisoning you?..does that make sense?...well it doesn't have to but l only understand one thing...did Gracelyn go to the so called Music school or she has been your housekeeper all along?"


Everything Jay was telling Chloe it made her head to spin around


Chloe stormed out of the room and slammed the door 


The way Of which Chloe acted raised red flags for Jay and that's where he knew that something is wrong


[NARRATED]


Justin got home carrying flowers singing the "cheerleader" song by OMI


The room suddenly got cold when he didn't feel anyone's presence...


Normally if Justin sings Gracelyn sings along but this time the opposite happened


Justin looked for Gracelyn till he got tired and frustrated since he believed it was a game gracelyn was playing


He begged her to come out and hear the news he has for her 


Begged her till he insulted her and apologized but still no sign of gracelyn


When he finally made up his mind of giving up he stood up and saw a white note which grabbed his attention


He read the letter and it totally didn't make sense about Gracelyn's leave


The letter had incomplete details as she stated that she has to leave and how she doesn't have time to explain everything 


Justin destroyed the bunch of flowers he was carrying out of anger and he was shedding tears without even caring that he has mucus and both the mucus and tears are getting inside his mouth


All he wanted was gracelyn....


A part of him agreed that 

its easy to cry and easy to die but its not easy to say goodbye.


He literally felt like he is just  having the worst nightmare after the best dream.


There was severe pain he felt in his heart which you will never see because it appears when Gracelyn isn't there.


A even gained thoughts which made him believe that It’s better to dream of something you may never have than to lose something you always dreamed of having.


It was dull for Justin 


[NARRATED]


When the triggered Chloe walked in she got to calm down when the aroma smell passed by her nose


She went to the kitchen and found her shirtless father in apron making whatever he was


Chloe: "Dad..what are you on about?"


Hector: "l am cooking..dinner on set by chef James tonight.. hahahah"


Chloe: "Dad and l am not talking about the fucking dinner!..l am talking about the damn reward and statement"


Hector: "first of all watch your tone..l am not your friend you stupid child...you should be grateful for whatever l am doing for you..Chloe you are stupid and you are an idiot actually you are a slow learner..do you have any idea of how girls with the capacity of your brain end up?...the Luckiest become housewives and the less fortunate become cleaners and the unfortunate ones became prostitutes..so now tell me if it wasn't for me..where do you think life would've taken you with that stupid brain of yours...Chloe your are worthless but the world see you differently and it's all thanks to me..so don't ever question any move l am making okay?"


Chloe stormed out of the kitchen and went to her bedroom and locked up herself
