A Beauty With Multiple Masks Chapter 1312
Save The Child
Is she questioning my acting?
Jason frowned and gave Arielle a sullen glare. In truth, he only made those mistakes because he wanted to spend more time with her.
“Trust me,” Jason reassured her curtly and walked toward the set.
As Arielle watched him leave, she froze for a moment. She regretted asking him that question. What have I done? Everyone in the industry knows he’s an excellent actor. How could I question his professionalism?
He must be mad at me.
Arielle followed right behind Jason. She wanted to clear up the misunderstanding with him but did not have a chance to do so.
Once the crew had completed their preparations, they proceeded with the shoot.
Arielle would act as a cop in the last scene, and the shoot would take place on the first floor of a preschool building.
In this scene, a thug, who tried to run away from the cops, barged into a preschool and held a child hostage.
“Help… Help me…” The child cried for help.
Coincidentally, the child was the nephew of a fitness coach—a character played by Jason. Upon noticing how the thug placed a dagger on his nephew’s neck, the coach named Bailey was ready to charge in his direction. Suddenly, a hand grabbed his arm and pulled him back.
“What do you think you’re doing? Can’t you see that the man is holding the kid hostage?”
Arielle, who was playing the role of a special agent named Sophie, held the impulsive coach back. “Stay right here.”
“I don’t want to hear another word from you. We have to think of a better way to save the child!” Sophie raised her voice.
The fitness coach took another closer look at the woman and finally recognized her. He was surprised to see her in a police uniform. Isn’t she the woman I tried to flirt with the other day? She does look like a cop, but I wonder if she’s capable.
Sophie then walked to the preschool’s entrance and spoke to the thug, “What do you want? Tell me. I’ll try to fulfill your needs, but you must promise not to harm the kid!”
“Five million in cash and a full-tank SUV,” the thug demanded.
“All right. I’ll speak to my boss right now. We’ll get everything ready once he approves your requests.” Sophie tried to appease the thug.
Upon hearing that, Bailey panicked. “How could you give in to his demand? We don’t have the money!”
“Shush!” Sophie glared at him. “You want to tell him that to agitate him? What if he decides to kill the kid?”
“But we don’t have the money. What are we gonna do?” Bailey’s face turned pallid. He wanted to rescue his nephew, but his financial status did not permit him to do so.
“Leave that to us. Just stay away and trust us.”
Sophie then instructed the other cops to distract the thug while she planned to rescue the hostage from the back. As Sophie made her way to the back entrance of the preschool, Bailey followed right behind.
In the next scene, Sophie and Bailey were seen observing the thug behind some trees. They were merely a stone’s throw away from the man.
“Could you stop following me? I’m on a rescue operation here, can’t you see?” Sophie expressed her dismay.
“I won’t get in your way,” Bailey looked into her eyes intently and said.
Initially, he thought that Sophie hit the gym because she was interested in him, but apparently, it was all a misunderstanding.
Sophie took a glance at him before turning her attention to the thug.
