Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 102
Edited by ABE
When Ruan Yan was brought to the lounge by Ye Qing, she thought that Ye Qing was just taking her to find a place where no one was there to ease her emotions.
Pushing open the door of the room, Ruan Yan lowered her head and wiped her tears herself and sobbed. Who knew the next moment, a low and familiar male voice came out:
“You all go out first.”
Ruan Yan heard Zhou Mengyan’s voice, raised her dim vision in shock, and saw a person sitting on the sofa inside–
Why was Zhou Mengyan here?!
She suddenly stopped crying.
After Ye Qing closed the door softly, the lounge was quiet.
On the sofa, the man looked at Ruan Yan who was still a little bit unresponsive and stood still, so he immediately got up and walked to her.
In Zhou Mengyan’s vision, the girl’s face was covered with tears, her eyes were red like a rabbit’s. His brows furrowed, he raised his hand to clasp the back of her head, and sighed softly:
“How can you cry like this?”
Without waiting for Ruan Yan to answer, he leaned down and picked her up, walked to the sofa and sat down, letting her sit on his lap.
He wrapped her waist with one hand, then took the tissues he had prepared and wiped her tears.
Ruan Yan reacted, and for a while, her heartbeat was messed up by his strong and gentle movements, her cheeks were flushed, and her heart was embarrassed.
How did this person arrive early… just now she was crying without a care. QwQ
Zhou Mengyan embraced her and felt her head leaning against his neck, tears streaming down her face, and his voice was very cold with distress:
“I shouldn’t have let you play a drama in the first place.”
Knowing that she would be so wronged, and suffering such a grievance, he said that he didn’t want her to come out to act in a drama.
His tone was like accusing, but Ruan Yan could hear that he was caring about her.
Ruan Yan whispered: “Why are you here?”
“I’m done, I came to you in advance.”
Originally he wanted to take her on a holiday happily, but he didn’t expect coming here to make him so angry.
“Then you just… saw me rehearsing?”
“What do you think?” He looked down at her, “If I didn’t come today, did you plan to tell me about the rehearsal?”
She was so guilty that her voice was very soft, “In fact, it’s nothing, just rehearsing…”
He remembered the few times she fell just now, “Is there any injury or pain?”
Ruan Yan shook her head, “No, it’s all fake actions.” Since she coldly showed Yan Danqiu, the other party dared not make any small movements.
He wiped the tears from her cheeks with his fingers, “When did your screenwriter change the script?”
“In the afternoon…”
He suddenly asked: “How do you feel that she treats you normally?”
Ruan Yan was stunned. For a while, she didn’t know what to say, and the man saw her thoughts: “Tell the truth.”
She looked down: “I think she dislikes me a little bit, but it may be that I think too much…”
She always felt that it was her own illusion. After all, Zhao Yue was Zhong Zhanjing’s friend, and there was no entanglement between them, but during this period of time in the crew, she could feel that Zhao Yue was somewhat hostile to her.
Just like the previous two days, she made a small comment during the rehearsal. Zhao Yue said in a roundabout way that she was not worthy to come and tell her. Every time in rehearsals, if Zhao Yue was on the scene, she would basically be ignored. Zhao Yue would talk to other people only.
And Zhao Yue had never changed the script, but today, it happened to be Yan Danqiu’s body movements.
After listening to Zhou Mengyan, he only said: “I know.”
Seeing that he was silent, Ruan Yan slightly raised her head to look at him:
“Do you think I acted well just now?”
The girl didn’t care about the aggrieved matter at all, but instead cared about whether she was acting well or not.
The man laughed angrily at her for a while: “Do you still care about this now?”
It meant that her crying was worth it if she played well!
He held her tighter: “The performance is very good.”
It was so good, it was so real that he was so flustered and that he planned to stop her immediately, and pull her into his arms when he stepped onto the stage.
Reassured, the corners of her lips lifted up, and the man saw her smile, and the corners of his lips curled up, “You’re happy to be praised?”
“Yeah…” she whispered, “Especially your affirmation.”
“Because you didn’t believe that I could act well before, saying that I was just shooting my mouth, talking about my dreams. I am also afraid that if I do not act well, if someone knows me, I will lose your face.”
Zhou Mengyan did not expect that the words that hit her before would make her remember it until now.
He held up her face lightly and said dumbly: “Sorry, I was wrong before. I used to think you couldn’t do it, but now I see it.”
He had a gentle voice, “And when did I say I was afraid that you would lose my face, eh?”
He had never thought about it this way.
He rubbed the top of her hair, “You will only make me proud.”
Ruan Yan heard the words, and her heart was at a loss.
She never expected to hear such words from Zhou Mengyan’s mouth.
Ruan Yan felt like a spring breeze in her heart, blowing away the dark clouds that had been covering her heart. She smiled and heard him ask, “Do you still want to cry now?”
She shook her head.
She eased her mood.
He asked in a low voice: “Then I can take you away?”
Ruan Yan wondered, “Where are we going?”
“Go to eat.”
Ruan Yan got off his lap, Zhou Mengyan led her out of the lounge, Ye Qing and Jiang Cheng were waiting at the door, and the man said: “Take my wife to the car first. I’ll come later.”
Ye Qing nodded and left with Ruan Yan.
Then the man looked at Jiang Cheng, and his voice returned to coldness: “Where is the person?”
“In the theater.”
On the other side, the people in the theater gradually dispersed. Zhao Yue stood in front of the first row of the auditorium, reverberating in her mind what Zhou Mengyan’s assistant had just said when he came to her, sweating in her hands, and her heart beating up and down.
She never expected that Zhou Mengyan was at the rehearsal site just now, and she didn’t even notice him at all!
Was it possible that Zhou Mengyan approached her because… she changed the script?
Seeing Ruan Yan had suffered some grievances, he wanted to trouble her?
Zhao Yue was flustered, but she suddenly thought- what was she afraid of? She was the screenwriter of “Quiet Lake”! She had the right to change the script. All this was for the show. What right did Zhou Mengyan have to trouble her?!
QOTC— What is wrong with Yue?
