Chapter 6: Restart (1/2)

Walking several blocks to the subway station, riding the subway, and then walked another few blocks to arrive at the studio was a three-hour long commute each way from home to work in the sweltering heat and high humidity for Elle….

Chapter 6: Restart (2/2)

Elle returned to Buzzy’s workroom with a red nose and puffy eyes.

Chapter 5: Job

On his way to Elle’s apartment the next morning with breakfast, JZ remembered his primary lyricist’s words, “End her misery already,” and that was what he intended to do.  He arrived at her apartment and knocked on the door.  No answer.  He knocked again and apologetically said, “Sorry I acted like a bad boy yesterday.  Please forgive me,” on the other side of the door.  Still no answer.  Worried…

Chapter 1: Infamous

“I finally found you.”

In a baseball cap, T-shirt, basketball shorts, and sneakers, JZ, the most famous singer, song-writer, multi-instrumentalist, and actor in Asia, was walking briskly down the busy streets of downtown Beijing in the summer time, and spotted a beautiful young woman sitting at a café reading the newspaper.  A pale, fresh face with rosy cheeks …
