[sound of a phone dialing]
ACHILLES: Hey, you reached Achilles. I’m clearly busy right now. You know what to do.
ECHO [audibly upset]: Hey, it’s Alex. I mean, you know that. My name is on the screen. Shut up, whatever.
[phones ringing in the background]
I- [sigh] Okay. Hi. I’m at work and I just saw Narcissus…. He- he got a deal with Olympus Records. A deal with Zeus.
And I’m looking at the contract right now, and… I’m happy for him! I am! Shut up, of course I am.
But he hasn’t been answering me for like… days. I know, I know he always was bad at texting me back, but he’s leaving me on read.
I looked at his Instagram. And he changed his profile picture. He deleted some of our old couple photos, and I’m… You know how Zeus is about his boys dating someone. Especially if they’re a new upstart.
Achilles, I’m scared. I don’t know what to do.
Please call me back. I need my best friend.
I-I have to go before Zeus sees me on my phone. And I- I don’t know. Whatever. Um… Bye. Please call me back.
