THE RECORD LABEL TYCOON

.


[NARRATED]


After the heated conversation Gracelyn had with Chloe she decided to come home and prepare supper as usual


It's almost dinner time and Chloe is not at home yet that means she is two hours late from the usual time


Gracelyn set the table and few minutes later Mr and Mrs James walked in


Gracelyn: "Uncle sir..Ms Ma'am...good timing dinner is ready"


Jenny: "You just saved a soul.."


She sat then settled...


Gracelyn: "You can sit uncle sir"


Hector: "Where is Chloe"


"Right here dad"


That was Chloe walking in and settled after her dad sat


Chloe: "Even parent...how was work"


She asked with a fake energy...you can even see that she is guilty but doesn't want Gracelyn's words to get to her


Hector: "Work always have to be fair and you should keep on recording dear"


Jenny clears throat and chuckles


Jenny: "You mean they should keep on recording?"


Hector: "Please Jenny please...this meal is scrumptious and l don't wanna lose appetite for it"


Silence...


Chloe: "Dad actually..l will be performing more than creating more music..my fans..my very own fans are demanding"


Hector: "Understandable"


Chloe: "and Tomorrow your girl has an interview on screen...grace please prepare the best dress for me..l want to rock the beautiful body l have and please call the makeup artist..will you please do that?"


Gracelyn: "l got you..."


Chloe: "l know l can count on you"


They continued to eat in silence...


[GRACELYN]


Just in the middle of the night l decided to open my curtain a little bit so l can be able to see the Moon...


Seeing a moon gives me hope...yes the chance for it to be seen comes at night and l also believe that l shall be recognised even though l am in the darkest days of my life


As l was deep in thoughts l saw my bedroom door being opened before l could scream Ms Ma'am turned the light on and came to sit next to me


Jenny: "everyone is sleeping"


Me: "l will call it a sleepless night"


Jenny: "And you decided to stay in the dark? "


Me: "In the dark it's where l belong...isn't l am in the dark side of my life"


Jenny: "please do not say that"


Me: "She is in billboards.. flyers... Power points... handouts...TV..radio with my songs..my voice and energy of recording


Jenny: "Gracy you know l would like to help you but l have no say in whatever Hector decides"


Me: "Yet he is your husband!"


Jenny: "Yes...l am Hector's wife because he needs a title of having a wife...you know whenever we disagree on something he always reminds me of my past...that l was a porn star and how he paid a lot of money for my videos to be removed online..."


Me: "whoah...l know Ms Ma'am you don't have to remind me"


Silence...


Me: "so if you don't mind..can you share how you met"


Jenny swallowed....


Me: "You don't have to tell me if it's uncomfortable"


Jenny: "He was already the tycoon when we already met and l was a vixen...we were shooting a scene at the pool where l was half naked and he asked about me and my numbers were handed to him..l thought it was for business since everyone knew what kind of a job l do..being a porn star of course...He invited me over and l thought it was for a business but we had dinner and the next minute l was in his chest...few weeks later we became a couple...the next we were expecting...and we got married and he got my videos removed online...in the name of fixing my life and building a home with me..."


Me: "He has done quite a lot for you huh?"


Jenny: "Quite a lot...maybe l was going to be dead or even sick by now because we were involved in drugs..that ernegy you see from the videos...it isn't natural...male porn stars take drugs for their Di**ks to rise and enlargement..and us on the other side we do it with no condom"


Me:" whoah l think you have said a lot"


I said to save the awkward moment...


Silence...


Me: "So that's why he is treating you like this?"


Jenny: "absolutely"


Then tear drops escaped her eyes  and the least l could do was to hug her


[NARRATED]


Its during the day and Hector was reading a newspaper when Gracelyn appeared and turned on the TV...By coincidence Chloe was on the guest in the show which was on screen and it's live


Hector: "oh my word...!!!! that's my daughter...that's my baby..Look how hot she looks... Jenny!.. Jenny!.. Jennifer!! "


Mrs James appeared with a concern


Jenny: "what's wrong?"


Hector: "wrong?...wrong?..why don't you ask what's right?...look Jenifer..our baby is live on TV"


Jenny: "she never said anything like being a guest in this show?"


Hector: "But there she is...there she is... rocking the dress and when she depart that place she is going to shoot another show... gracelyn increase the volume"


Gracelyn increased the volume and they all went silent... focusing on the show


"So Chloe it's your birth name.. l mean it's in your identity documents"


"Absolutely...It's Princess Chloe James"


"Okay... interesting..so tell me why do you think it's a good thing to use your name or why you didn't have to give yourself a stage name? "


"Using my own name keeps me as myself like l love my name and l don't wish l has any other name besides this one..l love how l live my life and l believe that l am my own role model and never in a million years will l impersonate someone"


Jenny: "oh really"


Hector: "Jenifer please not now...what's exactly wrong with you"


Jenny didn't answer her she decided to focus on the screen


"Well nice one Chloe...so what would you like to tell someone who is young at home and absolutely wanna be you?"


Chloe: "Never let fame get into you..if you are indeed meant to entertain there will absolutely be a way for you to be recognised and never ever forget that you are unique love yourself and Everything happens for a reason..god will never give your a battle you won't overcome"


"Oh that one touched me..l am inspired Chloe"


"That was the aim"


"Oh...wow you are one of the kind"


(They laugh)


"So you are unique"


"Extremely"


"In such a way that you don't collaborate or sing in acapella"


"Yeah"


"Why?"


"Because l am Chloe and l wanna do things differently and mind my own...the reason why l don't sing in acapella it's because l can't sing when there is no beat or sound that drives me to sing.. remember l don't sing jazz..l am not a fan and l won't even try to"


"Oh now l Understand the acapella but can you kindly explain the collaboration part..why don't you collaborate"


"Artists don't love each other...we pretend when we share a stage... especially when you see that l am the most selling artist and l have more fans more than you do obviously you won't like me and that's why l am avoiding collaboration...you know when we collaborate and make a nice song...l mean a hit that will make people talk about it for years..then after that you decide that you are tired of pretending and shoe me your true colours what happens to the song"


"I hate the song and we won't perform it"


Laughs...


"You see...that's why l won't even in million years collaborate..and my dad will forever be my producer "


"Why your dad Chloe"


"That man is my partner in everything and l swear if he wasn't my dad he was definitely going to be my husband because he is my partner..always by my side dark or blue...thunder or storm..even the time we were going through court cases because they claim that l am singing songs of an unknown artist who died long time ago"


"That was a stupid story right?"


"Absolutely stupid but you wouldn't blame anyone phela Jealousy is a terrible disease and l pray they heal"


"They shall...so Chloe can you give us a dance floor"


"Not without my personal DJ"


Jenny: "You mean not without the mic"


Hector gives Jenny an awkward look..Jenny then departed the room since the show was on ad break
