Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 103
Edited by ABE
Even if he felt bad for Ruan Yan, how could his hand reach this crew? What could he do to her?!
After waiting for ten minutes, Zhao Yue’s heart became more and more anxious, and she clearly felt that Zhou Mengyan was deliberately chilling her, and her panic and guilty conscience suddenly turned into anger.
Why did he make her wait here? Why should she listen to him?
Zhao Yue picked up her handbag, and had just walked two steps forward when he saw that the door was pushed open. Zhou Mengyan’s figure appeared in the dim vision, and the emotions on his face could not be seen.
The man walked towards her slowly, Zhao Yue tried to stand up straight, and waited until he walked in front of her. She looked up at him.
“Mr Zhou, is there anything to do with me?”
Zhou Mengyan looked at her, his eyebrows melted into the cold light a little bit:
“Is the script changed satisfactorily?”
Zhao Yue’s heart sank, and the corners of her lips were raised, “I am a screenwriter, and it is my duty to change the script. Isn’t it weird if you ask me about this?”
What she meant was, what qualifications did he have to ask?
“The “Jianghu” is well written.”
He played with the lighter in his hand and looked at her: “After finishing the script, your screenwriter’s work can be temporarily stopped and you can take a good rest at home.”
Zhao Yue felt that she was hearing voices.
“What do you mean?”
“I will notify the crew that I don’t need you for future drama scheduling.”
Zhao Yue’s eyes widened, “What do you want to do?! Let me never appear here again? Mr. Zhou, this is the Guangying Theater, not your company! You have no right!”
“I am the biggest investor in this drama, do I have the right?”
Zhao Yue was dumbfounded.
Investor… The investor who suddenly landed in the air a few days ago?! It turned out to be Zhou Mengyan?
Zhao Yue felt that her whole body was shocked, and she glared:
“Zhou Mengyan, just because I changed Ruan Yan’s script, you just retaliated against me like this? If it weren’t for my script, your wife wouldn’t even act in the drama!”
Ruan Yan had something wrong with her eyes!
When Zhou Mengyan heard the words, he suddenly smiled.
“Ruan Yan doesn’t have this drama, she can act in other dramas. But what would happen if Miss Zhao didn’t have the job as a screenwriter?”
“Zhou Mengyan, are you serious?”
He even threatened her with the job?!
“If it’s no big deal to you, you can try me.”
Zhao Yue looked at him calmly, and knew that with Zhou Mengyan’s capital behind it, if she completely angered him, what he said would really come true…
“I really didn’t deliberately target Ruan Yan when I changed the script today…”
He looked at her coldly: “Really?”
Listening to his determined tone, Zhao Yue felt that her legs and feet were soft, and her fingertips trembled uncontrollably. She curled her eyelashes and shook her voice:
“Mr Zhou, I am going to change the script back, I beg you to…”
Before Zhao Yue finished speaking, the man turned around and left.
Zhao Yue looked at him from behind, as if her soul had been drawn, and realized what the consequences would be on her.
Ruan Yan sat in the Rolls Royce and waited. After a while, the door on the right was opened and Zhou Mengyan sat in.
“What did you do?” Ruan Yan asked casually.
“Some little things.”
Zhou Mengyan told the driver: “Yuexin Lake Bay.”
The Maybach drove out, drove through the neon night, drove through the crowded urban area, and drove to the outskirts.
In the car, Ruan Yan’s mobile phone vibrated. She wore headphones, opened the screen, read the screen by voice, and finally clicked on the voice message from Zhu Xingzhi:
[Where are you tonight? At home? 】
Ruan Yan replied: [No…I’m outside, just coming out of the troupe, and I am going to eat. 】
[Are you alone? 】
[No, there is also Zhou Mengyan. 】
[Zhou Mengyan is now with you?! 】
Ruan Yan also wondered why she was so surprised, [What’s wrong? 】
Zhu Xingzhi said excitedly: [You two are also celebrating Valentine’s Day? ? ? 】
Ruan Yan was taken aback when she heard the words–
Today was February 14th?!
She checked her calendar and it turned out to be true. She had been so busy recently that she didn’t even know that it was Valentine’s Day.
Zhu Xingzhi: [Did Zhou Mengyan take the initiative to take you out? 】
[Well…] He really asked her.
[He’s taking you out for Valentine’s Day!! My God…】
Ruan Yan felt hot in her head and immediately denied it. How could it be possible! He took her out for Valentine’s Day, it’s absolutely impossible.
Zhu Xingzhi: [Where is Zhou Mengyan taking you? 】
Ruan Yan: [It seems to be called Yuexin Lake Bay. 】
Zhu Xingzhi: [? ? ? ! 】
[Have you never heard that there is a super beautiful Lovers Lake in Yuexin Lake Bay? It is a beautiful holy place for couples dating. 】
Zhu Xingzhi seemed to jump with excitement over there: [On Valentine’s Day, Zhou Mengyan takes you out for dinner. Why does he go to Yuexin Lake Bay if he doesn’t have any thoughts about you? Haha…]
Ruan Yan exploded, her cheeks like a little tomato: [Don’t talk nonsense! 】
It was impossible…
Ruan Yan rubbed her mobile phone, her heartbeat was a little chaotic.
After a while, she plucked up the courage to speak: “Mengyan…”
The man turned to look at her, “What’s wrong?”
She tentatively said: “That… Did you know that today is Valentine’s Day?”
A few seconds later, he said: “I know.”
Ruan Yan: ??? He actually knew?
“Then, then we tonight…”
He looked at her panic and raised his eyebrows: “Aren’t you willing to come out with me?”
“Wait until later.”
Ruan Yan: “…?” She felt more dizzy in her mind.
Half an hour later, the Rolls-Royce drove into the Yuexin Lake Bay Scenic Area, which was officially developed as a tourist attraction on the outskirts of Lincheng City last year. It was built around the largest lake in the south of Lincheng City, Yue Lake. The scenery was pleasant and surrounded by mountains. It was near the water, surrounded by mountains, and equipped with restaurants, hotels, and other infrastructure. The outline of Yue Lake was particularly like a heart, so it was called Yuexin Lake.
T/N: Heart in Chinese is 心 (Xīn) hence the name.
Ruan Yan didn’t understand why Zhou Mengyan brought her to eat in this place where people could easily dream and fantasize.
After arriving at the place, the car stopped at a building. Zhou Mengyan got out of the car first, and then he walked to Ruan Yan’s seat and helped her open the car door, “Give me your hand.”
She was stunned for a moment, stretched out her hand, and was pulled out of the car by him.
The staff who came to receive them bowed to them: “Mr Zhou, Mrs Zhou, please come with me.”
Ruan Yan was led by the man and walked forward, feeling that the surroundings were very quiet, as if there were no other people besides them.
Today was Valentine’s Day, weren’t there a lot of lovers here?
Guided by the staff, they walked into the restaurant first. Ruan Yan heard a melodious sound of music, and the symphony orchestra was playing music.
The lighting in the restaurant was dim and romantic, and every table was empty. The two of them walked in and finally sat down by the window.
Outside the floor-to-ceiling windows beside them, they could overlook the most beautiful Yue Lake.
The waiter pulled out the chair, and Zhou Mengyan took Ruan Yan and told her to sit down slowly, and then sat opposite.
As soon as Ruan Yan sat down, something was placed in her arms, and the waiter’s voice sounded in front of her:
“Mrs Zhou, these are roses for you. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Mr Zhou.”
Ruan Yan was dumbfounded.
T/N: QOTC— Are Mengyan’s efforts going to pay off?
