Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 118
Edited by ABE
Ruan Yan’s cheeks were slightly red, thinking that she was uncomfortable when she went to school last time, and there was nothing to hide here, “No…”
“The theater company.”
“Let the driver take you to the company first.”
Ruan Yan responded, so she declined the person who invited her to go with her, saying that there were other things and she was late.
After the people from the troupe went to the five-star hotel where they were eating tonight, they walked in and looked at the magnificent decoration of the lobby and the large crystal fountain, exclaiming: “The crew is really generous to buy dinner this time, right? Our crew is really rich.”
Everyone arrived in the private room. There were a total of four tables in the private room. Several directors, directors of publicity and distribution and other important dramatists naturally sat at the front main table, while other actors and staff sat at other tables.
After people came one after another, Zhang Jin told everyone: “Tonight, it’s actually one of our investors who’s inviting us to dinner.”
Everyone heard the words, and some people guessed: “Could it be the biggest investor?”
Everyone was so happy that the investor invited them to dinner!
“Will he come tonight?”
“This person will definitely come if he invited you to dinner ah…”
“I really want to see who he is.”
After the people came, some people counted the number of people and found that only Ruan Yan and the investor were missing.
It was normal for the investor to be late, but they were just wondering why Ruan Yan hadn’t arrived yet, and Zhuang Qi who was close with Ruan Yan said: “I will send her a message, I will help her to reserve a seat.”
The investor hadn’t come, everyone could only wait. After a while, Zhang Jin at the main table received a call and quickly walked out of the private room with a few people around him.
At the door of the hotel, Zhou Mengyan walked in with Ruan Yan. Zhang Jin and others greeted them one after another, and said with a smile: “Hello Mr Zhou——”
Zhou Mengyan moved his lips lightly and shook hands with them.
Several people walked to the private room. Zhou Mengyan’s cell phone rang suddenly. He saw that it was the company’s call. He stopped so he could answer the phone.
Zhang Jin: “Is it okay if I bring Ruan Yan in first?”
Ruan Yan nodded, then followed Zhang Jin to the outside of the private room, and instructed the waiter at the door to pick up Zhou Mengyan again.
The waiter took Ruan Yan to the main table and left.
The people in the private room who saw this scene were taken aback for a moment, and then a few well-meaning people walked up to Ruan Yan and hurriedly said: “Ruan Yan, this is not your seat, you are in the wrong place…”
“Yes, there are a few leaders sitting at the table, the actors are sitting at another table. Let me take you there.”
Ruan Yan looked blank, and then she was taken to the corner table next to Zhuang Qi by a few people. She didn’t know where she should actually sit, and didn’t say anything, thinking of waiting for Zhou Mengyan to come in.
Several people at another table looked at Ruan Yan, nibbling on melon seeds, and whispered softly:
“It’s okay for you to sit directly at the main table as soon as you enter the door. Even if you’re a rich wife, don’t you know that you only have a small supporting role in the troupe?”
“Just now there was no one at the main table, she sat there alone. Later, if Director Zhang came in with the investors and saw her… Hey, I’m embarrassed for people again.”
“Be considerate, people can’t see, they don’t have the eye to see…”
On the other side, Zhou Mengyan walked in after the phone call, Zhang Jin and others greeted him again with a smile.
When he walked to the door of the private room, the waiter opened the door. After hearing the sound, everyone stopped what they were saying and looked out.
The first thing they saw was the man who was surrounded in the middle.
The man’s body was tall and straight, his face was clear and noble, and his aura was as cold and clear as the distant mountains in the mist and rain, so people only dared to look away.
Many people recognized him immediately after seeing him——
Wasn’t this precisely Zhou Mengyan, the president of the Fan Moni Group?!
Was Zhou Mengyan the investor?
Zhang Jin walked in, looked at everyone’s gaze, and introduced: “Mr Zhou of Fan Moni is the investor in our drama.”
Everyone hurriedly got up and nodded to say hello. There was an uproar and surprise. Several special actresses saw Zhou Mengyan. They couldn’t restrain their excitement and burst into pink bubbles in their hearts, “Zhou Mengyan is actually interested in drama…”
After saying hello, Zhang Jin slightly bent over to Zhou Mengyan and made a gesture: “Mr Zhou, let’s sit here.”
However, the man stood still, his eyes rolled around in the private room, and finally fell on the girl standing in the corner.
Zhang Jin was surprised when he saw Ruan Yan in his line of sight, “Didn’t I let someone sit you at the main table just now?”
Then the next moment, Zhou Mengyan stepped forward alone. Everyone was stunned when he finally walked to Ruan Yan. After some time, the man took Ruan Yan’s hand and his voice was as gentle as water: “Yan’er, let’s sit here.”
Ruan Yan was led by Zhou Mengyan and finally returned to the main table. The man also helped her to pull the chair intimately.
People who didn’t know were all dumbfounded, and some of them blurted out subconsciously: “Ruan Yan, you and Mr Zhou, you…”
Zhou Mengyan looked around, hugged Ruan Yan’s body lightly, and generously introduced:
“Ruan Yan is my wife.”
Everyone was stunned: What the hell?!
Ruan Yan turned out to be Zhou Mengyan’s wife?!!
Zhou Mengyan took Ruan Yan and sat down, and everyone gradually reacted.
Ruan Yan was too low-key!
No wonder Zhou Mengyan wanted to invest in drama, it turned out to be just for his wife!
Several people knew that Ruan Yan was a rich wife, thinking that she had just married into a wealthy family, but they didn’t expect that she was the wife of the president of the Fan Moni Group, and their expressions blackened.
Ruan Yan sat in the seat and felt Zhou Mengyan wipe her hands with a hot towel, and then asked her softly what she wanted to drink. She guessed that many eyes were converging on her, but Zhou Mengyan didn’t care about anything and his tone was calm.
Her cheeks were reddish, and after softly saying a few words, he helped her to do everything well.
After the dishes came, Zhang Jin looked at the interaction between the two opposing people and smiled: “Mr Zhou and Ruan Yan are really affectionate.”
Zhou Mengyan said: “Usually I am busy with work, and she is performing in the troupe. We’ve troubled you, looking after her.”
“Usually Ruan Yan performs very seriously in the troupe, and she has great potential. The only thing lacking is to study acting professionally.” Zhang Jin said this, not flattering, but really feeling that Ruan Yan was a moldable talent.
Ruan Yan smiled faintly: “No, it’s mainly because Director Zhang Dao is a good guide.”
“I don’t dare. By the way, we all respect Mr. Zhou…”
After the dinner began, people at other tables glanced in the direction of the main table from time to time and saw Zhou Mengyan’s extra doting on Ruan Yan. Everyone was forcibly fed a large bite of dog food. They also felt that Ruan Yan’s life was so good. She married such a good husband.
And Ruan Yan, as the party evolved… she was drinking all the time.
A crew member came over to toast. She, as “Mrs Zhou”, wanted to accompany the man. Gradually, she drank too much herself and took the initiative to add to her own. Zhou Mengyan saw her face flushed, afraid she was drunk, so he directly took the wine away from her hand: “Drink corn juice.”
However, Ruan Yan was a poor drinker and it was already too late.
She felt dizzy, with all kinds of thoughts bouncing around. The cup in front of her turned into little elves, two, three were jumping…
Her mind was completely messed up.
After three rounds of drinking, the dinner finally came to an end and was declared over.
Finally, Zhou Mengyan held Ruan Yan. Zhang Jin and others sent them off.
At the entrance of the hotel, the back door of the Rolls-Royce had been opened, and Ruan Yan was first put into the car by Zhou Mengyan.
After the car door was closed, Zhou Mengyan turned to look at the motionless girl beside him, only to see her eyes drooping slightly, her small face flushed, her apricot eyes blinking.
He turned sideways to face her, rubbing her chin with his fingers: “What is Yan’er thinking about?”
She heard the sound, snorted, and turned to the window, as if not paying attention to him.
He couldn’t help laughing: “What’s the matter?”
How did he provoke her?
“I don’t want to talk to you…” She turned her face further away from him.
Zhou Mengyan was stunned and coaxed a few words. When he saw that she didn’t turn around, he had to wrap his long arms under her knees, hold her directly on his lap, pinch her waist, and his eyes rolled, “What made you angry?”
Ruan Yan was furious, “Why didn’t you let me drink and tell me to drink corn juice?”
Zhou Mengyan: ?
“I don’t want to drink corn juice, I want to drink! Corn juice is for children, I am an adult, and adults want to drink.”
Ruan Yan said.
Zhou Mengyan reacted for two seconds, lightly pinched her chin, making her lift her face and raise her eyes, “Yan’er, are you drunk?”
“You’re the one who’s drunk…” Ruan Yan burped, “I drank corn juice, how could I be drunk!”
Zhou Mengyan confirmed that she was 100% drunk.
He scratched the tip of her nose and said, “Next time I bring you out, I will definitely not let you drink so much.” He didn’t know the specific amount of alcohol Ruan Yan had before. He didn’t expect the girl to get drunk so easily.
He looked at her and asked softly, “Is it uncomfortable now?”
She murmured, not knowing what she was talking about, leaning her head on his chest, and asked softly, “Where are we going…”
“Going back home.”
“Can I continue drinking when I go home?”
He curled his lips: “There’s still corn juice for you to drink at home.”
She frowned, exasperated by him, about to break free from his arms, “I don’t care about you…”
The girl unintentionally twisted her waist and limbs, and the man’s eyes darkened, and his Adam’s apple bobbed, holding her tighter, “Don’t move.”
Ruan Yan drooped the corner of her eyes pitifully. Zhou Mengyan saw this, held her earlobe, and coaxed her with a dumb voice:
“Yan’er, be good. Later when we get back, I’ll give you a drink.”
In this way, Zhou Mengyan coaxed the drunk girl back all the way.
When she got home, the man took her into the villa, and then told the servant that she didn’t need to come and take care of her.
Ruan Yan muttered persistently. Zhou Mengyan put her on the sofa, then went to the kitchen and poured a glass of lemonade.
Walking back to the living room, he saw Ruan Yan waving her hands and singing “Counting Ducks” earnestly. He smiled and put the lemonade in her hand. Ruan Yan took it, took a sip, and chirped, “How does this wine taste like this…”
He leaned down to look at her.
“What’s the taste like?”
“This is lemon wine, of course it has a lemon flavor.”
“If you don’t believe me, give me this wine.”
He made a gesture to grab it, Ruan Yan immediately protected the food and proudly raised her chin, “Not for you.”
Zhou Mengyan discovered how she could be so cute when she was drunk.
