We are not. We become!

This is the story of Laura. A beautiful 26 yo italian young woman in couple with Mario. She knows what she wants and acts consequently.
Her next step in life is to buy a house in is hometown and have her own store. But money doesn't just fall from the sky. Even less so in this rather poor part of the country.
It's her partner who's going to push her into an adventure that will take her into a world she doesn't know. A world unlike her own, where money seems easier, especially when you're young and beautiful. But it's also full of dangers.

The story so far...

Episode 1

Laura and Mario are a couple of street vendors selling fruit and vegetables. They've been together for eight years, travelling the markets around Bria, a small town in Puglia. Laura would now like to set up her own shop in the town. After a bit of research, they found the right building, available as a life annuity. But the building is beautiful and well placed, so it's expensive, and they don't have the necessary start-up funds.
Mario hears about a game show that could earn them enough money to get a loan from the banks. The game is a competition organised by Canale 6, in which one contestant stands to win €50,000 and a role in a TV series. The series will feature a star who has just taken a two-year break from acting and is making a comeback. The winning candidate will play the role of his wife, but her identity will be kept secret until the competition is launched.
Laura was initially less than enthusiastic, but a meeting with the owner and a helping hand from the town mayor persuaded her to accept. After a casting session in Naples, her application was accepted. She spent a week with 19 other candidates in an undisclosed location, filming two programmes.

Episode 2

Episode 1 ended with an unpleasant surprise for Mario: the star is Vincenzo Ecosibelo, a handsome heartthrob whom he hates. Because of his past and accusations of domestic violence, Laura isn't too keen on Vincenzo either. She had been a fan of his in the early days.
During the week, however, and after filming a scene for the competition, she gets to know him a little better and gradually revises her judgement. Vincenzo seems to have been the target of a tabloid press hungry for scandal, and was completely exonerated at his trial, but no one ever knew: that was during his retirement from public life. What's more, he's friendly and personable, and although he's always a target for female candidates, he's neither flirtatious nor arrogant.
In the second show, four candidates were selected for the final. Laura finished first!

Episode 3

Laura caused a stir during the show by preparing and using hilarious fruit figurines. She created a buzz, and every child in Italy wants to make one! Vincenzo, who is no dummy, had a nose for it from the start and secretly asked Laura if she would be willing to take part in an advertising campaign. At 5,000 a day, it was hard to refuse. But what will Mario say? Seeing Laura spend more and more time with this Vincenzo, bothers him a little. But he's also thinking about the building and the money...
He agrees to let her go to Rome for a photo shoot with Vincenzo. It's a chance for her to start discovering a different world from that of the markets: a luxury hotel, the world of advertising... And all this with Vincenzo, who is as charming as ever.

Episode 4

We are not, we become! Life is a path that we travel, no one stands still.
Whether she likes it or not, the trip to Rome has left its mark on Laura. And as you're always on your own, it's up to her to deal with it. The four winners have to prepare for the final, which will decide the winner. To do this, they have to shoot a few scenes in their home town, which will be assessed by the professional jury and the public during the final show.
The film crew arrives in Bria, greeted by the mayor and a surprising assistant: Gloria, the owner of the building! It's the first meeting between Vincenzo and Mario... Given what's at stake, Mario is clever enough to hide his enmity. And so much the better! After lunch and the filming of a tourist clip, the main reason for the mayor's involvement in the project, Laura and Vincenzo shoot the first of three real scenes. It ends with a kiss. How will Laura negotiate this?

    Hey bro can you add a payment platform in Bkash? Since in Bangladesh PayPal is not available and I don't have any cards...So if you can Add Bkash/Rocket/Nagad any payment platform for the premium user subscription it will be really helpful for me.

        Bro in our country there are multiple pages who sell games on steam and epic games platform and they get payment in BDT Tk from bkash and add the game to our account, that's how we buy games in our country those who don't possess their own credit/debit cards. So if it is possible, then kindly add Bkash payment system.It is a good mobile banking system and really famous in our country, Bangladesh. So if you add it maybe you can get your subscription from Bangladesh also. My request to you please give it a thought.

          You know, I have to pay for about each payment system I add, and adding one just for your country would cost me 10 times the amount I'd get from subscriptions. Mathematics is cynical, sometimes... You could say: "Just gimme that bloody game, what does it cost you after all?". Well, I did it once. And I found the file shared two hours later. People are cynical sometimes. So just be patient, I'll try to release free short stories from time to time... I have one in stock.

      Hi. I'm currently working on episode 2. I need at least two more weeks to finalize it. I suspect this episode to be longer than I expected. I'm probably going to modify the cut of the scenario according to the number of lines of code and the length, so that the next release to be published this month at the latest.

      You must subscribe to have instant access. If you didn't, you'll have to wait for a 'hero' to find a hacked version on the usual sites.
