After Gu Ren said this, he returned to his own room. When Ye Zhi came back to her senses, Gu Ren was already gone.
Ye Zhi was still sitting downstairs, and after a while, Gu Ren came downstairs again.
Ye Zhi looked up when she noticed some movement. Gu Ren had already changed into a clean set of clothes. He seemed to have taken a bath because his black hair was still a little wet.
Under the faint light, his complexion was cold and exquisitely white; so as his eyes, they were cold and clear as a starless winter night. He looked extremely charming.
But Ye Zhi didn’t pay attention to Gu Ren’s good looks at all. Her concern was that Gu Ren’s right hand was injured. Should she help him eat food?
Gu Ren saw Ye Zhi standing up and asked, “Are you hungry?”
Ye Zhi wanted to shake her head, but nodded when she thought that she could assist Gu Ren during the meal.
Gu Ren no longer paid attention at Ye Zhi, he walked out of the room and went into the dining hall. His voice slowly sounded to the maid, “Add a pair of chopsticks.”
Gu Ren was injured and he still chose to dine with Ye Zhi. This time, the chef made a lot of dishes and filled the table with nutritious foods. Gu Ren and Ye Zhi sat opposite each other.
Even before Gu Ren picked up his chopsticks, Ye Zhi opened her mouth, “Your right hand is injured. Let me help you.”
Gu Ren was stunned and stared at Ye Zhi.
After a while, Gu Ren slowly said, “No, I’m left-handed.” Then, he calmly picked up the chopsticks with his left hand and began to eat slowly.
Ye Zhi, “…”
Still, Ye Zhi didn’t dismiss the idea of helping Gu Ren. While eating, she secretly peered at Gu Ren. She found that he was only eating a few vegetable dishes.
Ye Zhi thought to herself, “This is not so good, his nutrition will not be balanced.”
Ye Zhi calmed down, she put her chopsticks on the side and picked up a sweet and sour pork and slowly put it in Gu Ren’s bowl.
Gu Ren looked down and saw the sweet and sour pork lay in the bowl, standing out against a pile of green vegetables.
Gu Ren raised his head, Ye Zhi smiled and said, “Eat some meat and nourish your vitality.”
Gu Ren’s eyebrows throbbed because he had never liked this kind of sweet and greasy food. However when he saw Ye Zhi’s clear black eyes, he could not have the heart to refuse.
Ye Zhi was already blaming herself. If he didn’t eat it, Ye Zhi might be even more upset.
Gu Ren stiffly ate a piece of sweet and sour pork, and then ate a few mouthfuls of rice before he could barely suppress the sweetness.
Ye Zhi watched Gu Ren eating so fast. She thought Gu Ren liked it so she added more into his bowl. Gu Ren silently looked at the extra sweet and sour pork with a complicated mood.
Seeing that Gu Ren did not move his chopsticks, Ye Zhi asked with concern, “What’s wrong?”
Gu Ren stiffened out a few words, “This… is too sweet.”
Ye Zhi picked some eggplants and put them in his bowl.
This time, it’s not a sweet and sour pork; Gu Ren was relieved. He picked up his chopsticks and resumed eating his meal. Time passed quietly and no one initiated to break the silence.
For the first time, they dined together. After returning to their respective rooms, Ye Zhi received a text message from the agency reminding her not to be late for the advertising shoot tomorrow.
The original owner could barely receive endorsements even from small brands.
Although the previous Ye Zhi graduated from the College of Performing Arts, she only had little experience but she was well prepared for the shooting.
The next day’s shooting went smoothly.
After filming, Ye Zhi thanked the staff politely and was about to leave the studio.
