Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 106
Edited by ABE
She heard the man come in and turned around, Zhou Mengyan gave her the warm milk in his hand: “Drink it before going to bed.”
She took it.
After a few seconds of silence, she suddenly heard his voice in front of her:
The man looked at her blushing cheeks, the corners of his lips curled up slightly, he leaned down, and said in her ear:
“You will be pursued well.”
Ruan Yan wanted to cover her face and hide.
The next day, the two returned to the city from Yuexin Lake Bay. Because it was the weekend, Ruan Yan stayed at home for a day and only returned to the troupe on Monday.
In the morning, when Ruan Yan entered the rehearsal hall, she just ran into director Zhang Jin. Zhang Jin saw her and raised a smile on his face: “Ruan Yan, here you are.”
“Good morning Director Zhang.”
“How are you?” Zhang Jin asked concernedly.
“I’m fine, thanks.”
Zhang Jin smiled and said, “The rehearsal hasn’t started yet. You can sit by the side for a while. We will reschedule the play to 14:00 today. We will talk about it later.”
What did it mean to reschedule to later?
After Zhang Jin left, Ruan Yan sat in the front row of the audience and got acquainted with the next lines. After a while, the actors gradually arrived in groups, and Yan Danqiu also came.
Several actors sat and chatted together. When talking about Valentine’s Day two days before, someone jokingly asked Yan Danqiu: “Your fiance came to pick you up on Valentine’s Day. Did you go somewhere romantic?”
Yan Danqiu thought of what happened that night, her heart became irritable, but she still smiled: “He took me to the mall for dinner and to watch a movie. He booked it in advance, but I told him to cancel it…”
But in fact, she told her fiance very early that she wanted to go to Yuexin Lake Bay, and heard others say that the scenery there was particularly good. If you could stay there for one night, it would be very romantic.
But who knew, that day when the two drove the car for nearly an hour, they were unexpectedly informed that it would be closed tonight and not open to the public.
Yan Danqiu was angry that he hadn’t done his homework in advance, and they had gone for nothing. After returning to the city, she was hungry and tired. It was crowded everywhere. After eating a meal for two hours, she didn’t even watch the movie. In general, it was unpleasant.
Others: “Very good, my husband just cooked me a table of dishes, simple.”
“A good man at home.”
“By the way, Ruan Yan, where did you go with your husband?” They looked at Ruan Yan.
Ruan Yan faintly smiled: “We went to Yuexin Lake Bay.”
Yan Danqiu: ?!
“How is it possible when Yuexin Lake Bay was not opened to the public that night?” Yan Danqiu blurted out the question.
“My fiance went to find out about it. Yuexin Lake Bay was closed on Valentine’s Day. You are so funny. How did you get in?”
Yan Danqiu rolled her eyes in her heart. Was this person more pretentious than her? Didn’t expect to be exposed?
Ruan Yan heard this, the corner of her lips lit up:
“Yuexin Lake Bay was indeed not open to the outside world that night, because my husband had reserved it and we were the only ones inside.”
Yan Danqiu’s face instantly froze.
Ruan Yan knew this the next day, and Zhou Mengyan told her when he took her to eat breakfast in Yuexin Lake Bay. She didn’t like to tell outsiders about this kind of thing, but Yan Danqiu’s tone just now obviously was that she felt arrogant that she hit Ruan Yan in the face.
Ruan Yan was not someone to be bullied. Sometimes she didn’t show off her wealth. Some people would step on her head and scorn her.
Others heard her, “Ruan Yan, you are too romantic, right? Your husband really loves you.”
“Sure enough, we and the rich live in two worlds…”
Yan Danqiu’s face turned into a pig liver color.
After a while, the assistant director came to inform Yan Danqiu and Ruan Yan to let them come.
The two were called in front of Zhang Jin and another deputy director. Zhang Jin told them to change back to the original script: “We went back and discussed it. We’ll use the original scene where the second concubine drove Xiangli out of the house. In the script, the second concubine lets Xiangli leave without a care, removing those angry verbal actions.”
Yan Danqiu was shocked: “Return to the original one again?!”
“Well, what’s the problem?”
Yan Danqiu suddenly wondered: “Is the screenwriter Zhao not here today?”
“Yes…” Zhang Jin looked at Ruan Yan, “Screenwriter Zhao has been unwell recently, and she has taken a leave of absence for a while, and she will not appear in the troupe again.”
Yan Danqiu was full of questions.
So Ruan Yan and Yan Danqiu were in the right scene again, only one action was saved, and the scene where Ruan Yan fell was also removed. Except for the necessary movements, all the scenes where Xiangli was beaten were deleted.
Yan Danqiu was suspicious and faintly felt strange, but she did not dare to ask.
When the rehearsal was about to begin, Chen Kang, the producer of “Jinghu”, suddenly came to the scene.
The producer is the person with the most authority in the entire drama team, and he is in charge of the overall situation. Usually, only the director was in charge during rehearsals, but today nobody knew which wind brought him.
Chen Kang first communicated with several directors and other creative staff, and then went to meet several leading actors.
After the greeting, everyone gradually dispersed, but Yan Danqiu was stopped by Chen Kang.
“Danqiu, I will tell you something.”
Yan Danqiu saw that Chen Kang only left her, thinking that he was going to say something important to her, and was full of expectations. When only the two of them were left, Chen Kang looked at her and asked:
“Danqiu, you have also participated in some of the plays I produced before, right?”
She laughed: “Yes.”
Chen Kang’s face turned cold: “But if you still want to participate in the plays I make in the future, you have to be honest and not make small moves in private.”
Yan Danqiu’s heart sank: “What does this… mean?”
“There are some people who shouldn’t be provoked, you must not provoke them, otherwise you can’t afford the consequences.”
“Producer Chen, I don’t understand what you are talking about…”
He suddenly mentioned these two words, “Do you understand now?”
Yan Danqiu was completely stunned.
After a while, she nodded and said respectfully: “…I understand.”
“Don’t cause me any more trouble.”
After Chen Kang left, Yan Danqiu’s eyes widened in shock. She didn’t expect Ruan Yan to be so powerful!
She thought of the rehearsal that day. She deliberately used that scene to vent her dissatisfaction with Ruan Yan, but she didn’t expect this incident to reach the producer’s ears…
So Zhao Yue did not come here, it was very unlikely that it was a leave, but because the script was changed that day, which angered Ruan Yan or the people behind her.
Yan Danqiu suddenly thought, was it possible that these were all related to Ruan Yan’s husband?
She was completely stunned…
On the other side, Zhang Jin arranged the props group and the lighting group. Chen Kang, who had talked with Yan Danqiu, came over, pulled him away, and lowered his voice: “Don’t make any more moths, Zhao Yue is the only one.”
Zhang Jin’s face changed slightly, and he nodded.
After the actors took the stage, Ruan Yan stood on the right side and waited. Before starting the rehearsal, Zhang Jin walked over and said to her: “Ruan Yan, you’re usually rehearsing for too long. If you feel uncomfortable with your eyes, we will ask for a rest. We want each actor to be comfortable.”
“Well, well… I’m fine.”
“Don’t feel embarrassed, your body is the most important thing.”
After Zhang Jin left with a smile, Ruan Yan thought with emotion, what did Zhou Mengyan say to the group of people behind her back…
In the morning, Ruan Yan and Yan Danqiu rehearsed in accordance with the new script. Yan Danqiu’s attitude towards Ruan Yan changed a lot, and she almost didn’t write flattery on her face.
There were no other minor moves, and the rehearsal went smoothly. As the role of Xiangli did not appear in the afternoon scenes, Zhang Jin asked her to go back to rest early.
Ruan Yan went for acupuncture again, and when she came out of the clinic, Ye Qing took Ruan Yan back to the Yinan Mansion.
On the way, Ruan Yan closed her eyes and fell asleep when she suddenly received a call.
It is Zhong Zhanjing.
“Hello, sister Zhanjing?”
Zhong Zhanjing on the other end stood in front of the glass window of the office and heard Ruan Yan’s voice. Her heart grew colder, but her voice was gentle, “Ran Yan, are you busy now? Am I bothering you?”
“I’m free, what’s wrong?”
Zhong Zhan smiled quietly, “Actually, I have been embarrassed to contact you these days, but I am still worried that you are angry.”
“It’s about Zhao Yue changing the script. I know that Meng Yan is very angry. Do you blame me? Sorry, I don’t know about it. Zhao Yue’s personality is like this. She is very strict in her work. In fact, she doesn’t mean any harm. Don’t misunderstand other meanings.”
Ruan Yan looked at the sunlight outside the window, and said after a while: “Well, I didn’t misunderstand.”
“You are both my friends. To tell the truth, it’s like this… It’s ugly. I was in a dilemma. Zhao Yue felt aggrieved. When she came to my house, she cried for a long time. She really didn’t mean it.”
Ruan Yan didn’t know what to say for a while.
