Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 141
Ruan Yan heard the words and felt Zhou Mengyan’s sad and angry emotions, and hugged him distressingly, spreading the warmth of her whole body to him.
“I know, I know all your feelings.”
She knew the hidden pains that were buried in his heart. His childhood that brought him unforgettable trauma, what he cares about, and the things he can’t let go of, she knew them all.
Ruan Yan touched his head lightly, saying with a gentle voice:
“The matter is over, don’t feel angry because of those people anymore, he has been driven away by you anyway, right?”
Zhou Mengyan held her tightly, with his head buried in the nook of her neck.
Ruan Yan whispered softly, coaxing him like she would coax a child.
Maybe these childhood traumas were never mentioned by Zhou Mengyan to his parents. He kept it all to himself, so she knows that he needs company and care the most at this moment.
Until a while later, after his emotions had settled down a bit, he kissed her between her eyebrows: “Yan’er…”
The girl held his hand and smiled: “After speaking out, do you feel better?”
Zhou Mengyan looked at her, his eyes gradually calmed down: “Yeah.”
“Meng Yan, what I want most is your happiness.” Both of them looked at each other. “Maybe others will put other things first when considering problems, but in my heart, the most important thing is your happiness. You know, in this world, I always care about you the most.”
The back of Ruan Yan’s head was grabbed, and a few seconds later, the man’s kiss sealed her lips.
His lips rubbed her lips carefully, gently and long, as if he was dealing with a fragile and precious item.
Ruan Yan closed her eyes and silently conveyed all her love.
After a long time, Zhou Mengyan slowly loosened his lips and pressed her forehead lightly.
The voice that sounded was hoarse and loving:
“I love you.”
Ruan Yan’s apricot eyes were full of stars, “I love you too.”
Zhou Mengyan asked her if she hadn’t taken a nap, Ruan Yan nodded, and he led her to the bed, “Lie down.”
Ruan Yan lay down, “Then you’ll work?”
The next moment, the man got on the bed and took her into his arms, “I want to lie down with you for a while.”
Ruan Yan laughed: “Don’t you need to work?”
“That are not as important as you.”
“If you say this, I really feel that I am here to affect your work.”
He scraped the tip of her nose with his finger and said, “I’m not busy for the time being, can I?”
Ruan Yan laughed, “Okay.”
Ruan Yan leaned on his chest, and he went out after falling asleep.
In the late afternoon, Ruan Yan woke up and based on what she heard, Zhou Mengyan seemed to be talking about the company outside. She sat on the bedside and finally called Ye Qing.
“Sister Ye Qing, I want you to check one thing for me.”
“Madam, what did you say?”
“Meng Yan has a cousin whose surname is Xu. I want you to help me check the recent status of that family. I heard that a child in their family is sick. I want to know what is going on. Can you find out for me?”
“Okay, I will help you out as much as possible.”
Ruan Yan hung up the phone, then walked to the entrance of the lounge, and gently opened the door.
Zhou Mengyan was chatting with the director of the company’s finance department, and a voice came from the corner. The two turned their heads and saw a head poking out of the lounge.
Ruan Yan met the eyes of the two precisely.
She was most afraid of the sudden silence in the air.
The words of the director of the finance department suddenly stopped, and a few seconds later he said: “Uh… good afternoon Mrs Zhou!”
“Hello, you, you continue…”
Ruan Yan quickly retracted her head, blushing with embarrassment.
After a while, the outside voices stopped, and Ruan Yan saw the chief financial officer push the office door and leave.
Ruan Yan walked out of the lounge and found the man sitting on the sofa with his legs crossed, so he could watch her in time.
Zhou Mengyan watched her motionless figure, and the corner of his eyes curved as he smiled:
“Is there a second person here?”
Ruan Yan stepped down, ran over and ran into his arms, and said in embarrassment, “I haven’t seen that person before. How does he know that I am Mrs Zhou?”
“Do you think the woman who can come out of my lounge is not the president’s wife?”
“For example… Where did the beautiful young lady come from?”
Ruan Yan asked stupidly: “Meng Yan, when you didn’t like me, did you want to find other women?”
Zhou Mengyan narrowed his eyes and pinched her chin, “Huh?”
“What are you babbling about?”
Sensing the danger, Ruan Yan shrank her chin inward and muttered in a low voice, “I’ve heard that it’s normal for rich men, such as wealthy men like you, to have red flags fluttering at home, but the colorful flags outside are normal…”
TN: Having mistresses…
He laughed angrily at her, bit her earlobe lightly, and asked in a deep voice:
“Do I have colored flags, don’t you know it clearly when you are in bed at night?”
Ruan Yan: “…”
This man is indeed so energetic as if he can’t find a place to vent.
“Why?” she asked suddenly.
“What do you mean why?”
“I mean why… don’t you look for girls outside?”
Zhou Mengyan raised his eyebrows, “This is the first time I’ve seen a wife actually ask her husband why he’s not keeping someone outside?”
He flicked her forehead: “I have a habit of cleanliness, and I don’t like chaotic relationships between men and women.”
“And to be fair…” He kissed her chin, “With you, I really can’t look at other women.”
Ruan Yan laughed, “Okay, I’ll assume that you are complimenting me for my beautiful body and good shape.”
He laughed, “Come back to me to check it out tonight.”
“…” This person is a hooligan!
A few days after the company’s incident, Ye Qing sent her a message saying that Xu Hongwen’s family was finally investigated.
Ye Qing said some specific details, and then sent the contact information.
Ruan Yan dialed the phone.
“Hey, who are you?”
“Hello, I’m Ruan Yan, Zhou Mengyan’s wife, can we see each other when you have time?”
After understanding, the other side agreed, so he told Ruan Yan of the location.
In the afternoon, the sun fell on the camphor tree by the roadside, passing through the leaves, casting patches of light and shadow.
The private car stopped at the entrance of the Third People’s Hospital. Ruan Yan got out of the car and saw a man wearing a dark blue lapel and short sleeves standing in the front door.
She walked over with a fruit basket, Xu Hongwen saw her and froze: “Hello, you’re my sister-in-law, right?”
Xu Hongwen rubbed his palm against the hem of his pants, rubbing the sweat from his palm: “I’ll take you up.”
The two walked inside, and when they waited for the elevator, Xu Hongwen asked, “Did… Meng Yan tell you to come?”
“He doesn’t know about this, but I want to come and see it myself.”
After getting out of the elevator, he walked to the ward, and finally opened a door. Ruan Yan saw a little boy lying on the hospital bed with a tube on his body. His body was thin and his complexion looked pale.
The two women beside the bed stood up and greeted Ruan Yan, one was Xu Hongwen’s wife and the other was Xu Hongwen’s eldest daughter.
“Jia Jia just fell asleep.”
Ruan Yan stepped forward, looked at the little boy, and asked softly, “What disease does he have?”
“ALL, that is, childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.”
“Can it be treated?”
“I just found a suitable bone marrow type a few days ago, but…” Xu Hongwen moved his lips and pressed the bitterness in his heart, “It’s okay, it can be treated.”
Ruan Yan sat in front of the hospital bed, looked at the little boy for a while, then got up, “Why don’t we go outside and talk? Let’s not disturb Jiajia’s rest.”
TN: Sorry for the delay lately. Been really busy with things irl.
Support to my work would be amazing and would really mean a lot, if you enjoy my work, kindly consider buying me a coffee!
