Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 116
Edited by ABE
White snow fluttered and fell on the two of them. Ruan Yan stood by the tree and smiled: “You can take a few pictures with your camera.”
Zhou Mengyan went back to the RV and took out the camera. Just as he was about to take a photo, his mobile phone rang.
He saw that it was a call from a doctor.
Ruan Yan turned to him.
Zhou Mengyan then answered the phone and the other end said, “Mr Zhou?”
Ruan Yan walked to him, heard his faint voice, and was puzzled. After he hung up, she asked casually: “Who is it?”
“It’s the doctor.”
Zhou Mengyan looked at her with a low voice: “Your eye report is out.”
Ruan Yan was stunned.
She hurriedly asked: “The report came out… What was the result?”
He faced her without speaking.
Seeing his silence, Ruan Yan recalled the tone of his call just now, without any joy. She guessed the probabilities in her heart, and gradually sank.
She raised the corners of her mouth: “It’s okay, just say it, no matter what.”
The bitterness spread in her heart, and her shoulders were held. The next moment, the man’s low and smiling voice sounded in front of her: “Stupid, the report shows that everything is normal in your eyes and there are no recurring symptoms.”
“Furthermore, the doctor said, as long as you recuperate well, your eyes will quickly regain their eyesight.”
Ruan Yan was stunned for two seconds before reacting, “So I don’t need to worry anymore?!”
The stone in Ruan Yan’s heart finally fell.
She smiled. She was taken into his arms. He clasped his palm on the back of her head, and closed his eyes: “Now you can stay by my side with complete peace of mind, right?”
The only obstacle in her heart that she was afraid of was completely removed.
She could try to like him without considering these external factors.
Ruan Yan’s nose was sour, and she slowly raised her hand to hug him.
The snow drifted like catkins, and the two embraced under the Qiongzhi tree in Yushu.
Two days later, Ruan Yan and Zhou Mengyan returned to Lincheng contentedly after watching the beautiful scenery along the way.
After arriving home, Ruan Yan’s eye discomfort completely disappeared. Zhou Mengyan accompanied her to the hospital to retrieve the report, and the doctor gave a few more points to note.
Ruan Yan shared her experience of going out to Zhu Xingzhi, and Zhu Xingzhi couldn’t help saying:
“I think Zhou Mengyan really likes you. Wow, vigorousness does not necessarily mean romance, long flows of water are often the best way to reflect a person’s heart. You say that he is the president, so busy at ordinary times, and being able to accompany you like this can explain a lot of things.”
Ruan Yan nodded, “I’m so worried that he has delayed his work, but he must have fun with me…”
“Yanyan, I initially said to you that the post-marriage days will feel like years, but now it seems that my words really hit me in the face. I really never guessed that Zhou Mengyan would fall in love with you.”
“I didn’t guess either, and I started to get to know him during this trip.”
This trip between the two of them brought them closer. Ruan Yan also heard a lot about his past and truly understood him.
Being taken care of by a man in various ways, he prepared surprises for her from time to time, and she realized that he actually understood romance.
Some subtle changes have been planted in Ruan Yan’s heart, quietly taking root.
Zhu Xingzhi laughed: “You will continue to test him slowly, anyway he will always chase you.”
The two chatted for a while, and then hung up. Ruan Yan walked to the piano room. After coming back these few days, Zhou Mengyan wwa a bit busier than usual because he had to deal with official business in arrears.
He called her in the evening and said that there was a compulsory social engagement tonight, and he would be home late. Ruan Yan said it was okay.
After eating dinner, she received a call from Zhong Zhanjing, and the other party suggested that she had some time to come and visit her at home.
Ruan Yan hadn’t seen her for a while, since Zhou Mengyan’s birthday.
After she came, she brought two bags of Chinese herbal medicine, “Ruan Yan, this is the medicinal herb that I bought that is good for the eyes. You can ask your maid to simmer it for a while.”
“Thank you sister Zhanjing.”
The two went to the living room and sat on the sofa. Zhong Zhanjing looked at her and said, “How are you doing these days? Are you happy?”
Zhong Zhan smiled quietly, and said casually: “Mengyan really should accompany you more during this period. After all, he will go to the United States next month, and there is no time.”
Ruan Yan paused her hand holding the water cup, and suddenly raised her head, “Go to the United States?”
Seeing her surprised reaction, Zhong Zhanjing was slightly stunned, “Don’t you know? He is going to the United States in March.”
Ruan Yan was stunned, Zhong Zhanjing pretended to be shocked, “No way, hasn’t Mengyan told you yet?”
“I knew about this before the Chinese New Year. Fan Moni is going to enter the North American market this year, so Zhou Mengyan needs to go to the branch in the United States. I asked him about it before, and he said that it is still being arranged. It is estimated that it will be next month.”
Ruan Yan was completely confused.
Zhou Mengyan never mentioned it in front of her this week.
“Maybe he was afraid of your sadness, so he didn’t tell you,” Zhong Zhanjing paused, “but you are like this… doesn’t it mean you have to separate from him?”
Ruan Yan’s heart trembled for a moment.
She really had no way to leave here now. The first was that she was still treating her eyes, and the second was that she was still participating in a drama, and she had not graduated, so she could only stay here. And her father was still in the nursing home, she was not willing to leave Lincheng.
Ruan Yan lowered her eyes and shook her head, “I don’t know…”
“Mengyan likes you, I guess he can’t bear it. It’s just that this is a plan made very early,” Zhong Zhanjing sighed. “It’s just that I don’t know how long he will go to the United States. If it’s a year or half a year, you will be separated like this. The discomfort will also affect the feelings…”
“I have a friend by my side. Her husband was also transferred to another place because of work. Later, her husband had an affair outside, and even had an illegitimate child. He came back and divorced my friend a few years later.”
Ruan Yan was speechless for a while.
Seeing her like this, Zhong Zhanjing patted her on the shoulder and said softly: “Ruan Yan, I didn’t guess that Mengyan would be like this. Don’t get me wrong, but I’m a little worried.”
“Ok, I know.”
After a while, Zhong Zhanjing received a call from a friend and said that she was leaving.
After sending off Zhong Zhanjing, Ruan Yan took Coco upstairs and returned to the bedroom.
She leaned on the sofa, recalling what Zhong Zhanjing had said to her. Her heart felt like being emptied a little bit by others, and she felt more and more uncomfortable.
If what Zhong Zhanjing said was true… Then she really had to separate from him?
She remembered that in the prenuptial agreement, there was a provision that allowed for separation arrangements.
At that time, he should have considered the issue of separation.
Ruan Yan’s good mood these days had suddenly dropped down, making her heart sore and swollen for some reason, but could not find an outlet to vent.
After a moment of melancholy, she took out her mobile phone, slowly fumbled to Zhu Xingzhi’s WeChat, and sent her a few voice messages:
“Zhizhi, I heard one thing just now. That Zhou Mengyan seems to be going to the United States. I don’t know if it’s true…”
“I’m thinking if it’s true, then we’re going to separate. Hey, I just feel so flustered in my heart. I can’t go to the United States now, and he can’t just stay for me. He’s the company president.”
“He is still socializing and he hasn’t returned home yet. I don’t know if I should ask him later. I’m afraid he’ll say that it is true… Zhizhi, what do you say? I am super panicked…”
Ruan Yan fell on the sofa and made a lot of long voice messages, then locked the phone and let out a long sigh.
She waited for Zhu Xingzhi to reply. Three minutes later, the phone finally rang in the tone of WeChat.
She quickly picked it up, unlocked the screen, clicked on WeChat, touched the place where the first message usually pops up, clicked in, and finally found the voice message that came in, tapped open——
A man’s low voice came from inside.
“I will be home soon.”
She thought he reported going home to her, and suddenly clicked on the screen the voice message she had just sent: “Zhizhi, I just heard about something…”
Ruan Yan: ???!!
Did she send the message to Zhou Mengyan?!
She immediately sat up in a panic, read the screen by voice, and finally realized that she had really made a mistake!
She remembered that the chat interface was Zhu Xingzhi QAQ.
Over. It was over. She just said so many of the thoughts in her heart…
Ruan Yan’s cheeks burst red. Hearing the phrase “I will be home soon” he had said, it meant that he must have finished listening to her voice messages. Ruan Yan wanted to cry without tears, and wanted to bury herself.
Five minutes later, Zhou Mengyan hadn’t returned yet. Ruan Yan wanted to take a bath and calm down. She went to the closet to find clothes and found that the pajamas she wanted to wear seemed to be drying outside.
Ruan Yan walked out of the bedroom and met the maid, and the maid said to help her collect them.
Ruan Yan followed her to the balcony. After the maid had finished collecting them, she turned around and took them to her: “Madam, here you are.”
As soon as Ruan Yan took them, she heard footsteps behind her.
The maid looked at the man who walked up to the second floor, and then walked into the laundry room, and respectfully said, “Hello, sir—”
Ruan Yan was stunned.
When the maid left, Ruan Yan heard footsteps approaching her. She was holding her pajamas and her cheeks were red. For a while, she didn’t dare to turn her head in embarrassment. Her heartbeat was chaotic. The next moment her body was suddenly turned over.
The man put his arms around her, Ruan Yan stepped back, pasting the glass door on her back.
Feeling the man’s body pressed up, “You…”
Zhou Mengyan looked down at her red cheeks, his eyes were burning hot:
“I have finished listening to those voice messages.”
She buried her face, and before she spoke, the red ears were kissed, and his smiling voice fell in her ears:
“Can’t bear to see me go?”
