“Who’s going to recognize me in this town?” Eric scoffed. His lack of sleep was making him irritable. He was ready for the charade to be over, so he could get back to his real life.
“We can’t be too careful Eric. There is too much at stake. There are a lot of studio people still hanging around for the wrap party. Some of them know you from when you and Tina dated. Just keep a low profile until the coast is clear. We still have a few hours to kill before this drama plays out.”
“Speaking of drama, do you think Tina suspects anything?” Eric asked settling back into the leather seat as Mark pulled the car away from the curb and exited the airport.
“She’s clueless.” He was sure Tina had no idea of their involvement.
Aaron was busy tapping away on his phone sending text messages when he heard Sally let out a whistle. The sound escaped her lips before she even realized it when Tina came into view. Not only because the blonde looked stunning in the business suit but judging by her pronounced swagger and tight lipped smile Sally sensed that her boss was in kick-ass mode. Rarely did Tina show this side of her personality but she could be brutal when the situation warranted it. They were certainly in for a showdown.
Despite her outward appearance of being in total control, the movie executive was still trying to wrap her head around what had taken place over the past few days and how royally screwed she felt by the people she worked with. First to have Aaron and Kate sabotage the film’s ending, then to be accused of stealing the negatives was ludicrous. Now she had to protect herself not only against Kate, but also from her ex-boyfriend Eric, Aaron who up until now she thought was a trusted ally, and William the billionaire investor who might very well be the mastermind behind the entire deception.
“Hey boss.” Sally said giving Tina the once over and nodding her approval.
“Hey Sal. Did you get the hotel to set up the video conference for Max and the legal team to join us?” Tina asked not yet acknowledging the others in the room.
