The Rejection

Often, a talent is invited to join the entertainment industry because he/she fits a certain type. For example, a young man has the looks of a matinee idol and his career might be centered on building toward that goal. Similarly, talents who have innate skills, such as making people laugh, would gear toward comedy. Unfortunately, only a handful can freely move from one stereotype to another.

All-around Talent (AT) realized that his looks could only take him so far. AT has a certain look that would make him awkward if he shifted away from roles that were originally intended for him. Production teams have a hard time finding a different role for AT, especially now that projects are limited. Moreover, the A-listers are prioritized over other talents. Although AT has connections, he is still not in the list.

AT approached his Secret Backer (SB) and asked if they could hook up again. SB knew that giving in to AT would have a catch. Thus, SB refused AT and said that she has no time to think about her urges, as she has to deal with the effects of the pandemic. Pressure from management and the new normal in the production have resulted in changes. SB has to focus on work instead of spending intimate moments with AT. Besides, management has issued a reminder discouraging extra-curricular activities in exchange for slots in projects. AT could not do anything, but wait for projects.

Rumors have it that AT had to contact his previous clients for possible service bookings while between jobs. After all, staying idle will not pay the bills.
