Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 131
Xin Mingzhe said: “After the Chinese New Year, I was sent by my dad to the branch in R City for training. I just happened to see that the first performance of your “Quiet Lake” this weekend was in R City. It was a coincidence. Then I will go to see you perform.”
“No, I’m actually playing a very small role…”
“Do you have a line?”
“It doesn’t matter if you don’t have lines,” Xin smiled, thinking that it would be nice to see her, “Just think of it as me relaxing and cultivating my emotions.”
The performance time was Saturday night, so on Friday morning, the crew will set off to R city.
Xin Mingzhe also sent a message to Ruan Yan, asking if he should come to pick her up at the high-speed rail station. Ruan Yan refused, saying that their crew had arranged a bus, and the other party said that Ruan Yan would be invited to dinner in the evening, but she had to go to the rehearsal today. There must be no time, and Xin Mingzhe didn’t force her, letting her prepare first.
After finishing the evening and returning to the hotel, Zhou Mengyan called her just after she had a shower.
“Open a video call?”
“I want to see you.”
Ruan Yan was so embarrassed that she wanted to refuse, but Zhou Mengyan was very persistent: “Just for a while, eh?”
In the end, she replied warmly, sat up quickly, looked in the mirror, trimmed her hair, and then turned on the camera. The other side was also turned on. Ruan Yan saw the man’s clean and elegant face. He seemed to be still in the study.
This was the first time they had opened a video call. Ruan Yan’s heart beat faster and her cheeks flushed. Zhou Mengyan looked at her silently for a few seconds, and finally smiled: “Are you so shy?”
“…No.” She whispered.
“Will your stomach feel uncomfortable today?”
Ruan Yan had her period yesterday. Since Ruan Yan had dysmenorrhea during her period some time ago, Zhou Mengyan started to keep track of her menstrual period and keep her from eating too many icy things.
“No, I didn’t drink ice drinks.”
As the two chatted, Ruan Yan gradually became less nervous, no longer sitting like a clock, but fell on the bed.
The man looked at the camera, and the girl’s singlet straps slipped slightly from her shoulder inadvertently, revealing a beautiful white collarbone, but she still looked like she didn’t know it, and she concentrated on sharing various things with him.
His eyes darkened a bit, and he suddenly wanted to be by her side at this moment.
Originally, they planned to talk briefly for ten minutes, but in the end, the chat lasted for nearly an hour. Ruan Yan showed signs of sleepiness and Zhou Mengyan said softly: “Go to bed and rest early.”
“Well, good night then.”
After watching her hang up, Zhou Mengyan clicked on WeChat’s travel trips and booked tickets immediately.
On the second day, all crew members gathered in the theater for rehearsals.
The venue for their performance this time was in the largest theater in R City. Tickets also sold very well. so you don’t have to guess to know that tonight is full of people.
In the evening, Ruan Yan was preparing in the background, and she received a message from Xin Mingzhe: [I’m here.] He also provided a picture of the scene.
Ruan Yan was surprised for an instant, but she didn’t expect him to come to see it.
Ruan Yan said that she was about to go on stage, and she might not have time to go out to see him. But Xin Mingzhe told her to continue what she was doing and to wait until after the show.
After the show started, Xin Mingzhe sat down and looked at Ruan Yan on stage. He felt that she was still as dazzling as ever after she regained her sight. Even a small role cannot conceal her brilliance in the drama.
In fact, every play that Ruan Yan has performed, he has seen them, but sometimes he will come to the scene silently and leave silently.
The performance ended smoothly and ended successfully.
After Ruan Yan finished packing up backstage, she and some of the actors headed outside. When they reached the lobby outside, Ruan Yan saw Xin Mingzhe’s poster next to her, holding a bouquet of pink eustoma*.
TN: It’s a type of flower. It’s really pretty, just like our Yanyan.
He turned his head to see her, and immediately raised his lips: “Ruan Yan.”
Ruan Yan and her friends around her froze, Ruan Yan said something to her friend and then walked up to him. Xin Mingzhe handed the flowers to her, “Congratulations, Yanyan, the performance was successful.”
Ruan Yan smiled lightly: “Thank you.”
Xin Mingzhe smiled and looked at her, “How about it, has it been hard these days?”
“Fortunately, my task is not very heavy.”
“Then I’ll take you out for a late dinner tonight? You said I asked you out these days, you didn’t even give me face, now that the show is over, it’s okay, right? I’m also considered half a host.” Xin Mingzhe looked at her with tender eyes.
Ruan Yan blushed: “I’m going out tonight–“
Before her voice fell, there was a cold male voice in front of her:
“She has no time tonight.”
When Ruan Yan heard the familiar voice, she suddenly froze and turned her head to see Zhou Mengyan’s figure come into view.
The man was dressed in a dark gray trench coat. He was tall and slender, with a delicate and clear face, his deep eyebrows and eyes were like ice and snow, his face was cold to the point of freezing, and he held a large handful of red roses in his hands.
Xin Mingzhe’s face was suddenly frozen.
Ruan Yan was shocked when she saw Zhou Mengyan walking to her side and grabbing her waist.
Ruan Yan was pleasantly surprised by him, “Meng Yan, you… why are you here?”
“Came to see you perform.” The man had a gentle voice.
Zhou Mengyan raised his eyes to look at the opposite Xin Mingzhe, his eyes getting cold, “Mr Xin, it’s so late, so I don’t want you to bother accompanying my wife to eat dinner. It’s not appropriate.”
Xin Mingzhe looked at Zhou Mengyan’s sworn sovereignty and was shocked and surprised when he remembered the man’s icy cold appearance some time ago.
“Zhou Mengyan, what do you mean?”
“It means I’m asking you to stay away from Yan’er.” Zhou Mengyan raised his lips, “Do you understand this?”
Xin Mingzhe frowned in shock: “Aren’t you a business marriage? Do you care about Ruan Yan at all?”
Didn’t Zhou Mengyan not care about Ruan Yan at all before? Last time Ruan Yan broke his foot, he called Zhou Mengyan in the hospital. The other party was indifferent and didn’t care at all. Why now…
When the man heard the words, his thin lips spat out a few cold words:
“Yes or no, what are you going to do?”
Xin Mingzhe was stunned.
Zhou Mengyan exhausted his patience and looked at him:
“Mr Xin, Ruan Yan and I are married, and we are in a good relationship now.”
“I advise you to stop playing with the idea of trolling and coveting someone who can never be yours.”
Zhou Mengyan grabbed Ruan Yan and led her away directly.
Xin Mingzhe stood in place, curling his eyelashes, and his eyes were scarlet.
Ruan Yan was taken outside by Zhou Mengyan, recalling his pledge of sovereignty just now, and his cold attitude of saying it didn’t matter when she took the initiative to explain in front of him before, it was a world of difference…
Ruan Yan raised her head and looked at his tight jaw line and extremely unhappy expression, and pressed down the corners of his mouth, “Should we change the flowers?”
He lowered his eyes to look at her, Ruan Yan looked forward and blinked, her voice was very soft: “I like the red rose in your hand…”
Only then did Zhou Mengyan react. It turned out that Ruan Yan was holding flowers from Xin Mingzhe.
The eustoma in Ruan Yan’s hand was immediately taken away, the red rose was stuffed in, and he said coldly:
“Of course my flowers look good.”
Ruan Yan finds that this person is so cute when he is jealous.
When he reached the door, Zhou Mengyan’s car was already waiting at the door, but Ruan Yan pulled on his sleeves: “I want to stroll around this street and buy some things. Will you walk with me?”
So the two put the flowers in the car and then walked forward.
A light swooped forward on the dimly lit street, with few people passing around.
Ruan Yan’s wrist was held by him. She looked at him with a dark expression and asked him, “You want to come here today and give me a surprise?”
He said quietly: “I was a step late, and my wife almost left with someone else.”
He was waiting at the door just now, but he answered the phone temporarily, and when he came back, he found Xin Mingzhe standing in front of Ruan Yan.
Ruan Yan tried her best to stop the corners of her lips from turning up, “How did you know that I was going with someone else?”
He looked down at her: “Will you have gone with him if I didn’t come?”
“I was just about to politely decline…”
“He came to R City for you?”
“How is it possible, he just happens to be working here.”
Only Zhou Mengyan will come for her.
Ruan Yan saw him but still did not speak, and suddenly pulled him to stop, smiling at him:
“Meng Yan, are you jealous?”
“What do you think?” He was upset, “It’s sending flowers and taking you to dinner. He still likes you to this day.”
As soon as his voice fell, the girl stood on her toes, gently tugged at his clothes with her fingertips, and kissed him gently on his lips.
She looked at him:
“But… I only like you.”
Support to my work would be amazing and would really mean a lot, if you enjoy my work, kindly consider buying me a coffee!
