Chapter 107 Kiss
When everything was settled, Jasper showed up on the filming site
After the script was changed, there were still many scenarios to be shot in the sanatorium. The whole
crew had to stay in the sanatorium for a week.
Last night, it was raining outside. When Jasper got off the car and was blown by the cold wind, he
couldn't help but look at the row of ginkgo trees outside the sanatorium. The autumn wind swept the
golden leaves all over the ground. From time to time, a small quantities of yellow leaves were blew
down from the treetops.
Jasper couldn't help but catch them.
"Mr. Jasper is so romantic," Dylan asked in a teasing tone from a side front.
As Jasper turned around, the director, the scriptwriter, Francis, Dylan, Ashley and other main creators
of the crew all came out to receive him. When Jasper glanced at Ashley, she seemed to be a little
embarrassed. They looked at each other for a second or two and then looked away.
Since everything had been settled satisfactorily, Chase was in a good mood, "In the future, we have
one more member. Ashley, why not invite your boss in quickly."
When Ashley noticed Jasper, she felt her mood was hardly described easily by words. Being absent-
minded, she was shocked when someone called her name. She turned to look at Jasper
subconsciously, then she withdrew her gaze immediately as she found Jasper was also
looking at her.
Jasper skillfully diverged the conversation in just few seconds, "Chase, you are flattering me. I have to
rely on you for this play."
They continued the conversation with some small talk. After a while, Jasper was finally asked to come
in. Dylan, and Francis, and Jasper, the three investors, found a place to talk and the others went back
to the site to continue shooting.
After a week's scandal, Hazel was silent. She kept a low profile. She had 5 assistants to take care of
her in turn before, but now she only kept one by her side.
After the incident, if Hazel hadn't been aware of the reason for her being slandered, she would have
wasted her time in the entertainment circle. Seeing that Ashley was following the director's investor,
although she knew that it was all her own fault, she couldn't help but feel a little resentment when she
saw Ashley had gone well.
Ashley was walking towards the shooting site. When passing by Hazel, Hazel couldn't help saying
sarcastically, "You are so lucky to have so many people to escort you."
Ashley stopped and frowned in confusion.
It seemed that she didn't know the truth at all. Hazel continued with more sarcastic remarks.
'Oh, my God! Someone made great efforts to pave the way for her, but this woman doesn't know
anything about it at all.' How could she be totally unknown the truth? How could she be so free from
psychological burden? It was hard to tell whether she was satirizing Ashley or satirizing people's
unfairness to her. "Don't you know that I became like this just to give up the leading role to you?"
With her eyes wide open, Ashley understood what was going on.
"Ashley, you have to remember that no matter how glorious your future will be, it is made from the
bones and bloods of other people beneath your feet! I'll see if you can still sleep soundly every night! "
Ashley's heart sank and she stumbled a step back. She wanted to defend herself, but she didn't know
about it. Besides, she didn't want act the leading role. She didn't know this plan at all.
But she couldn't say anything.
Jamie stretched out his hands and held his artist who was standing in front of him. He looked at Hazel
who was full of jealousy and said indifferently, "Hazel, have you forgotten that no one forced you to
make a deal?"
Hazel's heart ached.
Jamie's tone became colder. "Nobody forced you to put on air, and nobody forced you to bully new
artists! You deserve all of these. What you have done has nothing to do with Ashley! "
It was true that when she lost position and influence, she would have to be subjected to much indignity.
Hazel's arrogance was still there. She immediately became angry, "You are an assistant..."
"Hazel, I'm sorry," Ashley said immediately, "If there is anything I can do for you in the future, I will try
my best to help. Let's go, Jamie!"
The fury in Hazel's heart was almost tore into pieces by what Ashley said. Mixed with astonishment
and anger on her face, she felt a sense of inexplicable strangeness.
In order to welcome Jasper, the new investor of the movie, and also to reward the crew, Francis invited
them to the largest restaurant near the film site. Naturally, as one of the main creator, Ashley sat
together with other investors.
When she took her seat, she chose a remote seat by the scriptwriter. She thought that she wouldn't
meet Jasper. However, not long after they sat down, Jasper and the other two investors finally came in,
and then sat beside her.
Noticing that his seat was occupied, Francis sat down next to Jasper. Dylan sat down straight without
being modest when he saw no one sit in the host seat.
This arrangement was a bit of a mess. Fortunately, it was not a formal banquet, and no one cared
about that much. When they almost sat down, Francis stood up and greeted them before the dinner.
Ashley's heart was like stuffed with a piece of magnet. The other magnet was in Jasper's hand. The
closer they were, the strong the magnetic force was. Ashley wanted to say something. She wanted to
greet this man naturally, but the more she cared, the more difficult she felt. She was so nervous that
she couldn't even look sideways.
Jasper picked up a piece of crab meat and placed it on the woman's plate. He said gently, "I didn't see
you today. Are you not feeling well?"
"No, she didn't." She shook her head not that she was too reticent, but that she didn't know how to get
along with him naturally, not letting him find anything unusual.
"Are you tired from work?"
She shook her head again.
Although Jasper knew that Ashley was not talkative, she spoke even less today. She guessed that
Ashley must feel embarrassed about what happened that night, so he said no more and turned to talk
about work with Francis.
When they almost finished their dinner, people at other tables began to propose a toast to the main
table one after another, especially to the three investors. After the toast, the three sat together at other
tables and encouraged each other.
The toast finished, and the banquet was over.
After seeing Jasper off, everyone went back to their own seats. Francis had drunk a little wine, so he
was unable to drive. Ashley stayed to be his driver. The autumn breeze was soughing, and the lights in
the suburb were not as intense as those in the city. When night fell, there were only faint street lights.
Their car was parked in the square in front of the hotel. All the street lights were turned on but with only
Before they were reconciled, they could talk as freely as friends. After that, they seemed to talk less
and less. After being silent for a while, Ashley finally started the conversation, "Is someone frame Hazel
Staring at the stars for a while, Francis asked instead, "You guessed it?"
"Uh huh," said Ashley. She couldn't help but feel nervous and asked with hesitation, "did you do it?"
"No, I don't."
Ashley let out a sigh of relief. She really didn't know how to deal with him if he did this for her.
"I hope I did it." Then Francis turned to look at her and continued, "If I can do this for you, can you pay
more attention to me?"
Ashley was startled and stuttered, "How... How can you say that? "
In such a dim light, Francis's facial expression was very obscure. Ashley couldn't see him through.
They just looked at each other for a while. Finally, Ashley couldn't stand the atmosphere any longer.
She said first, "Francis... HMM! "
The moment she called out his name, Francis pressed himself against her body and blocked her words
with his soft lips!
Ashley was about to push him away rationally. However, she failed because Francis strength was
When she came to her senses, she couldn't refuse him anymore.
How could she say no? This man was her boyfriend. He had given her a good role. He helped her a lot,
but she exploited him to revenge on Sheila...
Noticing that she stopped struggling, Francis slowly released his hand which was holding her waist and
held her tightly in his arms. His tongue and lips moved into her mouth bit by bit.
For Ashley, this sense of being captured was not from the man, but from the fate. She stepped back,
from resistance to slowly opening her heart to accept this man. She felt the power and ruthlessness of
The kiss made her feel hopeless--a kind of despair that she couldn't obtain the love she wanted from
the bottom of her heart. She had every possibility with anyone else, except Jasper. Just like Aimee, and
like those women who fell in love with Jasper, but left dejectedly.
She didn't know how long this kiss lasted before Francis finally let her off.
Ashley lowered her eyes obediently and numbly. Francis rubbed her lips with his fingers and
he seemed to have a sense of security. His emotions were no longer unstable as before, and he gently
held the obedient woman in his arms.
The atmosphere was still intense between them. However, a smell of tobacco enveloped Ashley's
nostrils. She turned her head abruptly, but to her surprise, she saw nobody.
Was it her illusion?
