THE RECORD LABEL TYCOON

.

[NARRATED]


The bond between gracelyn and Justin just became unbreakable


I don't know how but l absolutely think this is crazy like you do


You might as well envy how they live...yes the Justin boy doesn't have much


He is just living in a hut down the bush having two pots and a blanket and few utensils


He used the hut to sleep..bath and stay but he does the rest outside...even his kitchen is outside


He is living the village life in town but you wouldn't really say it's a town because the houses in that area are far from each other


Gracelyn and Justin went to collect firewood together and trapped a bush bird for themselves...and they made a braai for two


[NARRATED]


Hector waited the whole night for Chloe who happened to come back at the middle of the night drunk and passed out on the couch


Hector woke up and made himself breakfast and sat next to Chloe who was deadly asleep


Hector turned on the radio and the noise woke Chloe


Chloe woke up and rubbed her eyes and held her heavy head


Chloe: "good morning dad"


Hector: "and how did we end up here Chloe?"


Chloe: "Dad there is still hope okay?"


Hector: "Not after we know what gracelyn is up to"


"A very good morning to you listeners...l.know you must be good since our queen is still at it"


Chloe increases the volume


"It is by great pleasure to announce that she will be abroad just in few weeks...yes l mean Chloe..the Chloe whom left her fans hanging after singing an acapella but some of the fans are not satisfied because the star wasn't visible enough"


Chloe aggressively stood up and switch of the radio


Hector: "Chloe l turned on the radio because l wanna listen to it okay?"


Chloe: "Dad you wanna listen to that negativity just in the morning?...are you being for real?"


Hector: "listening to negativity is what l needed in the moment...so that l can come up with a technique of dealing with those who think they know us to well to an extent of suspecting that you ain't the one who was performing...oh well it hurts because indeed it wasn't you"


Chloe: "l am going to take a bath...the auditions will start in an hour and l am one of the judges"


Chloe said whilst standing up heading to her bedroom


[NARRATED]


Gracelyn suddenly appeared and jumped to Justin who was washing dishes outside his hut


Justin: "what is it?"


Gracelyn: "l sucessfully registered you in the competition"


Justin: "what?!"


Gracelyn: "you are a contestant"


"GET OUT OF HERE!!!"


Justin said the lifted gracelyn up and thanking her.... gracelyn got of him


Gracelyn: "well l think we have celebrated enough and it's time to rehearse"


Justin: "Rehearsals"


Gracelyn: "yes rehearsals...now before we rehearse you should decide whether you will sing..pop..gospel or what"


Justin: "well yeah rehearsing it is but...how about we rehearse tomorrow"


Gracelyn: "To what?....Justin we have no time okay!...Your turn is today only today..and in few hours you are supposed to be out of here...so choose two songs you will sing there"


Justin: "oh let me think..."


Gracelyn: "You better think fast because you have to win this..l won't be there when you are on the stage...you will be on your own"


Justin: "what do you mean l will be alone?"


Gracelyn clears throat...


Gracelyn: "l mean l won't accompany you..you have to go on your own.. remember l am on the run and if l am found l could be dead"


Justin: "who are you running from and what exactly did you do"


Gracelyn: "it's not me...it's what they have done to me"


Justin: "and what is it?"


Gracelyn: "please not now"


Silence...


Gracelyn: "Have you decided on a song?"


Justin: "yes what about Eva max...sweet but pyscho or Sia... elastic Heart?"


Gracelyn: "what about Selina Gomez ft Kygo"


Justin: "l like it"


Gracelyn: "nice.. proceed"


Justin sings


[NARRATED]


The audition location is on set and most of the judges arrived


When Chloe arrived the judges grabbed their sits since they were readily waiting for her


Unfortunately Mr James sent a report that states that he won't be available for the first round of auditions...


Even though he couldn't make it..the event seemed to have light upon it since contestants came in numbers


They proceeded the auditions and it was quite an experience..judges cried... laughed..got disappointed etc


Trust me when l say there was no emotion they didn't go through


They called off the auditions for tomorrow hence they already listened to more than 2k+ contestants...surely you have an idea how tired they must be


When the judges were about to separate..there was sudden noise somewhere in the building..that grabbed the judges attention and they approached the side were the noise came from


When they arrived they saw a guy (Justin) who was on his knees begging to get inside and sing


The security was explaining to him that the auditions will resume tomorrow


The guy kept on Begging and explaining that the reason he wanna audition today so badly it's because where he come from it's many hours away from here


Chloe felt pity for the poor guy although the level of underestimation was on another level


The judges stood and waited for Justin to sing


Justin was shivering but the minute he opened his mouth and sang it was easier for him to go with the flow


The judges have him the entry card with pleasure and a part of then felt like announcing him as the winner already but hey..you know protocols are protocols and they might find someone is talented more than justin


[NARRATED]


Hector is pacing up and down as nothing seems not to be working out for him


He clearly missed the auditions for nothing because his lords of investigators are not wining


[NARRATED]


Gracelyn fell asleep outside whilst sitting on the bench waiting for Justin


He woke up when he heared Justin who was over the moon and chanting in celebration of him officially selected as a contestant


They hugged each other and celebrated together but all of the sudden Justin cutter of the celebration phase


Gracelyn: "What's wrong?"


Justin: "the audition number registration it's R500"


Gracelyn: "R500?"


Justin: "yes and l do not have that amount"


Gracelyn: "Don't worry l do have a plan"


Justin: "plan?"


Gracelyn: "Yes..we will ask for donations"


Justin: "and you think we will have R500 tomorrow before 12:00"


Gracelyn: "it's worth a try... follow me"


Justin: "where to?"


Gracelyn: "just follow me"


Justin followed Gracelyn as her shadow disappear
