Marrying the Ugly Heir for Truth and Wealth Chapter 15
Christina had been hurt before, so she didn’t trust anyone now. Naturally, this included Nathaniel.
She gripped the black card in her hand. I suppose this card is still useful if I need to put on a front when the situation calls for it.
With the black card in her hand, she left the room.
Nathaniel wanted to call out to her and stop her from leaving, but the gorgeous figure had already gotten far away.
After leaving Scenic Garden Manor, she took a taxi and went straight to her workplace—Seven Nights Bar.
In order to give her mother a better life and not to get bullied constantly by the Steeles, Christina had been working hard to earn money all these years.
Seven Nights Bar was a place where the people from the upper-class society get their entertainment. The furnishings were known to be the most lavish in the city, and the pay was naturally quite high. The commission rate was three times more than an ordinary bar.
In the dressing room, Christina changed into a black uniform and tied her hair into a high ponytail, her youthful and delicate appearance reflecting in the mirror.
Under the light, her porcelain-white skin looked as pure as the snow, and her watery eyes were calm.
After getting changed, she left the dressing room and went to work.
It was the third anniversary of the bar. The atmosphere was livelier than usual, and the place was already crowded before it was nine o’clock.
To celebrate the anniversary, the bar manager hired the most famous DJ in the country. Not only that, but there were also other performances for the finale of that night.
It was said that the manager had also invited the most well-known dance crew to perform, and there would also be a solo dance performed by the famous dancer, Peacock.
There was obviously an increased number of customers that night.
Christina was so busy that she didn’t even have time to take a quick break. Just as she went to the dressing room to drink some water, the door was pushed open.
With a panicked look on her face, Yasmine entered the room. Her expression changed when she saw Christina as if the latter was her last hope. “Christina, you must help me tonight no matter what!”
Christina was dumbfounded, her bright eyes filled with confusion. “What’s wrong, Yasmine?”
Yasmine was extremely worried, and she couldn’t waste any more time. “This is urgent! Put on a mask and help me replace Peacock on stage!”
Replace Peacock, the famous dancer?
Christina immediately shook her head. “No, I can’t! I just know some basics! How can I be compared to her? I’ll be exposed as soon as I start dancing!”
If Nathaniel finds out I performed a dance on stage, I’ll definitely not live to see another day.
Yasmine instantly waved her hands and explained, “You’re just replacing her temporarily and performing a short dance. The audience won’t be able to see you clearly since it’s dark and the lights keep flickering.”
Peacock had eaten something bad and had a stomach ache. She fainted and was sent to the hospital for emergency treatment.
Christina looked troubled. “I really can’t…”
Yasmine patted her chest and guaranteed that everything would be all right. “She called and informed us just now she would be back as soon as she finished her IV drip. You just have to replace her for a short while until she returns. Everything will be fine. No one can recognize you when you have a mask on, anyway.”
As Yasmine had always taken good care of her, Christina began to waver.
Yasmine held Christina’s hand and persuaded, “If there isn’t any performance, the guests will surely make a scene. Our boss will fire me if he finds out.”
Yasmine was a single mother. It wasn’t easy for a woman to raise her family alone. Seeing that they were both unfortunate people, Christina finally agreed after hesitating for a while. “All right, I’ll help you!”
