Chapter 5: Fame

5.3 Fame: Hot Topic

 

It was time for the meeting and the entire office was still reeling from the photos. Aaliyah refused to let them see her sweat she had to go about her day like this scandal was no big deal. She had to walk into that meeting full of her peers with her head held high and she did just that.

 

“Okay everyone I know you’ve seen photos, so let’s go ahead and get the questions out of the way.” She said as she sat down at the head of the long table.

 

“I think we should run the story before anyone else does and let you tell your side of the story,” Bianca said.

 

“Yeah, let’s do a spread with you and Dominic.” Someone else chimed in.

 

“Yeah, I’m sure Dominic would love to explain himself,” Raquel said sarcastically.

 

“You know what let’s interview the girl in the pictures too, she’s Raquel’s assistant,” Aaliyah said.

 

Raquel’s eyes got big as Aaliyah finished her sentence. What was she up to, she thought. Why would Aaliyah want to interview Sandra and put her in the magazine alongside her and Dominic, she wondered.

 

“Any objections?” Aaliyah asked gazing around the room. No one said a word and a mischievous grin formed across her lips. “Okay moving on.” She said.

 

“Bianca, what’s next on the agenda?” Aaliyah asked.

 

“We still need male models for the model article we’re doing,” Bianca replied.

 

“Any suggestions?” Aaliyah questioned.

 

“Jean Pierre is pretty hot right now,” Raquel answered.

 

Aaliyah swallowed hard and tried not to react. Somehow Raquel had found out Jean Pierre’s name, Aaliyah thought. Raquel was waiting on an answer from Aaliyah with a gleeful expression on her face. Aaliyah was stunned she had no idea how to handle this. If she said yes that meant that Jean Pierre would be here in her office building asking questions about her life trying to be closer than they were. Jean Pierre wanted to be serious but Aaliyah told him she wasn’t ready she said that she was focused on her career but the truth was she was already serious with someone else. How would she explain the huge diamond ring on her finger? Then she could say no but there would still be questions because he was the hottest model in the world right now.

 

“Aaliyah what do you think?” Bianca asked.

 

“Um yeah, he’d be perfect.” She replied. “Is that everything?” she asked.

 

“Yes, that’s it,” Bianca said.

 

“Okay, Bianca I’ll get with you later to set a time for the interview,” Aaliyah said. “Everyone dismissed.” She added.

 

Aaliyah looked calm on the outside but inside she was panicking. She quickly went into her office shut all the blinds and locked the door. She sat down at her desk and took a long deep breath.

 

“What are you up to now Raquel?” she asked aloud shaking her head. Aaliyah pulled out a bottle of vodka from her desk drawer and a glass. She slowly poured herself a drink then turned her chair around to face the window so she could think.

 

“Girl we got her now,” Raquel said as she entered her office.

 

“What happened?” Sandra asked.

 

“Well there’s good news and bad news,” Raquel replied sitting down on the couch in her office next to Sandra.

 

“What’s the bad news?” She asked.

 

“You have to do an interview for the magazine about sleeping with Dominic.” Raquel quickly blurted out.

 

“No way.” Sandra shook her head.

 

“if you don’t do it they will just make things up,” Raquel explained. “But we will discuss that later I got good news.” She said.

 

“Aaliyah is having an affair with a French model and he’s going to do a spread in our magazine,” Raquel said.

 

“She agreed to that?” Sandra asked.

 

“Yes she had to he’s hot right now, so that was the best decision for the magazine,” Raquel stated. “It’s not so bad for us either.” She grinned.
