I now realised that I’m the only user who’s stubborn enough to recount this story.
The blurb promises that my first day in Kingpin would have the ‘juiciest adventure’.
Dream sequence that Noah didn’t left, mirror (deliberately?) had characters in wrong place, anyways that’s not how mirrors work!
And Austin is back!!! Waking me up for some reason, and apparently Noah had broken her heart. Not to mention Austin is (rightfully) pissed I took the job with Kingpin. “Because Daniel’s EVIL!” But now (maybe because of my choices) I say Ellen’s evil. Obviously there’s more to Daniel’s backstory as seen as last time. But Austin dude, if you want me to know, TELL ME! (Now I think about it, did Zoe and Isa just let him in?). Now it’s a war between the magazines. And officially I’m mad at myself: Noah this, Noah that.
Anyways, me and the girls get picked up by Daniel and his limo to a surprise location (already then). Jesus Christ, Daniel unexpectedly has such a high regard of my team and me (well, higher than Sydney) sharing champagne and stuff. Now Sydney is a definition of a grudge. No matter, we’re going to the Hamptons. Something about a reclusive, mysterious party host named Gatsby, who disguises himself every party. The epitome of a Kingpin man Daniel says, and I have to expose him(Looking closer to Daniel’s face the beard looks weird penciled in). I get getting to be the strong-woman of Love Life, but for Kingpin? Something’s odd… And I’m not just talking about Daniel’s 4.5M dollar beach house. Anyways it’s a 1920s themed party.
Sydney threatens that I’ll be fired if I don’t dress great for the shindig. This great dress is a stunning pearl pale pick flapper outfit (gems again!). The new hairstyles frickin’ SLAY at the party, plus we bump into a guy in a blue tux and an undercut (wonder who’s he? ) Spoilers: He ain’t Gatsby . Viper suggests to look into the wait staff for Gatsby. (#2 at cricket) Playboy, charitable people under 25, 3b year coma from sky diving, that’s the gist of what we get to know. Anyways Gatsby eventually passes a note to MC to meet him in the balcony, and boy he has heterochromatic eyes I think. And of course, I’m the only person (i.e. reporter) who seems real. It looks like MC gonna be a flirt, we just kissed not even seconds later. And I need gems again to spend a night with him (for business AND pleasure, wink wink), so decline.
What’s nice that MC instead would spend a few more minutes with him. Instead, both of us discover Daniel doing the do (well, starting to) with Sydney. And Gatsby is frickin’ Liam, Daniel and Ellen’s kid!
Thank god, Ethan isn’t here. That would mean I would involved estranged rich kid, estranged ex-co-worker, estranged bad boy rockstar, weird one-minute blue tux guy AND a cheatee!
