'Cassandra?'

Johnny instantly remembered the woman who came to audition yesterday. He believed that she would make a name for herself in the future.

But this didn't matter anymore.

Johnny closed his eyes and said in a hoarse voice, "I would prefer if you don't get involved. I can deal with this matter myself."

He was in grave trouble. If the public found out that Cassandra had anything to do with him, they would also slander her. She was a pretty girl and had excellent acting skills. After some time and experience, she would become a star.

Unfortunately, he wouldn't be able to wait for her to become one.

"I trust you, Johnny. I believe in your innocence, and I have a way to prove it."

Johnny's back stiffened, and his eyes narrowed. Shock was written all over his face. He held the phone tightly in his hand, Cassandra's words echoing in his head.

'I trust you.'

The words were like a lightning bolt that electrified his entire being.

Ever since the scandal broke out, she was the only one who stood up to say that she trusted him. When everyone else had abandoned him, this woman he had only seen once wanted to defend him and prove his innocence.

Johnny pressed his lips together, and his free hand trembled at his side. He gripped his phone so tightly that his fingers turned white. The others cast curious glances at him and wondered who would call him at a time like this.

He raised his head and asked in a hoarse voice, "Why are you doing this?"

Why would she believe him when no one else did? Her words still meant a lot to him even if she just said those to comfort him.

On the other end of the call, she chuckled and said, "Because you're Johnny, and I know that you would never do such a thing. All you can think of is work. You don't deserve to end up like this. Please put your trust in me and give me a chance. I will prove your innocence in a week."

Johnny answered, "I do trust you. However, the company won't give me a week."

"Are you with Wendell He right now?" Cassandra asked.

"Yes," Johnny replied.

"Give your phone to him. I'll have a word with him," Cassandra said.

Johnny had a confused look on his face when he asked Wendell, "Mr. He, would you please answer the phone?"

Wendell was also puzzled by how Johnny was acting. Judging by the way he was acting, Wendell could sense that this call seemed to have changed something.

Wendell was cautious because if he couldn't figure out a way to solve the problem, he would lose a talented director and lose the company. He couldn't make the wrong move.

Wendell rubbed his temples and held a hand out for Johnny to give the phone to him. "Hello?" he said.

"Hello, Mr. He. I'm not here to talk nonsense to you. I'm here to solve your problem. Both Johnny and your company will be saved. Are

you interested in hearing what I have to say?" Cassandra asked.

Wendell had no idea how to deal with his problems. Was there really a way out of this?

This was a complicated matter, and he was hesitant to place his faith in a woman he had never met before. Could she really solve this?

Wendell asked, "Who are you? If you're planning on taking advantage of this situation, I think you're speaking to the wrong person."

Wendell's reaction didn't faze Cassandra. The set-up was executed perfectly. If she didn't know for sure that Johnny was innocent, she wouldn't have had the courage to defend him.

"Mr. He, are you willing to give up what you have now? Others may not know what Johnny is capable of, but you should know that he is your last hope. Are you really willing to give him up?" Cassandra asked slowly with a knowing smile.

Wendell's expression froze, and his grip on the phone tightened. He glanced at Johnny before he asked in a deep voice, "Why should I believe you?"

He'd been in the entertainment industry for many years, but he still couldn't find a way out. How would she solve this?

"Mr. He, do you have any other ideas? Even if you decided to sacrifice Johnny, would you be able to protect the World Media? The online users won't let you go. Besides, everyone knows that the World Media sucks. Don't you think FX International Group will get rid of both the World Media and Johnny?" Cassandra smiled, knowing she landed a blow.

Wendell's face darkened, and his pretense of calmness shattered into a million pieces. With a stern look, he gritted his teeth and said, "What can you do about it?"

Cassandra knew she had won him over. "You don't need to know that. All you have to do is trust me. I promise I'll clear Johnny's name in a week. By then, your company will be saved."

Wendell's brows furrowed when he asked, "Do you have any conditions? Don't tell me you're doing this out of kindness."

Cassandra raised her eyebrows and said, "I want a long-term contract with the World Media."

Wendell was stunned. He thought she would ask for a large sum of money, and he wasn't expecting her to ask for a contract with the World Media. If she could keep her promise, he would be happy to offer her a deal.

"That's easy. I can promise you that. But what if you fail?" Wendell narrowed his eyes.

Cassandra continued, "If I fail to protect your company, I'm afraid you're going to be at your boss's mercy."

Wendell's face became serious. "Who the hell are you?"

"That's an irrelevant matter. Everyone has their secrets. The only thing you need to know is that I can protect your company, right?" Cassandra asked.

After a moment's silence, Wendell gritted his teeth and said, "Okay, I trust you."

He had no choice but to place his faith in this mysterious woman.
