“I have an audition for a film.”

“Get out of here!” Elena grabbed his arm and looked at him. “That’s amazing. What’s the movie? When’s the audition? Where is it being filmed?”

“Whoa, easy tiger, it’s just an audition. It’s here in New York, next week. The 
role is the love interest of a teenage girl, set in Italy.”

“That’s so exciting!” Elena clapped her hands. “Does that mean you will film in Italy?”

“I suppose so. But I have to get the part first.”

“I know you will. You play such a great romantic nice guy,” Elena said. “I’ve seen how the girls look at you.”

“You think? What about you?”

“I have to get an agent first. Maybe after the Shakespeare production?”

“No, I mean what do you think about me as a love interest?” Sebastien said.

“Perfect. You’re sweet and considerate, funny, smart and cute in that boyish way. I think you’ll get cast in those sort of roles a lot.”

He shook his head and sighed.


“Never mind.”
