Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 64
Translated and edited by CutieBinkie
“Teacher Ni is sorry, I should have come to see you, but you came to see me.”
“It’s okay, you are like this now. It’s better for me to see you.” Ni Zhuang saw Ruan Yan’s appearance, and sighed, “It’s a pity. Originally, this time in the “Anna Karenina” drama, you must be able to participate.”
Ruan Yan was selected at the beginning, and rehearsals were about to begin after the school started, but now the plan cannot keep up with the changes and she missed the performance.
Ruan Yan is one of the few talented girls that Ni Zhuang has ever seen, and she has good appearance, but her fate has made such a joke.
Ruan Yan lowered her eyes, feeling bitter in her heart, “I missed this opportunity myself, and the teacher helped introduce me to it.”
Ni Zhuang shook his head and comforted her, “Hey, this is something that can’t be predicted. By the way, how is your father now?”
“He hasn’t woken up yet and is still undergoing treatment.”
“Then take care of yourself first and keep your eyes on the most important thing. There will definitely be opportunities.”
Ruan Yan nodded.
“In fact, don’t think of blindness as a particularly bad thing. It will be a special experience in your life, and it may be of great help to you in acting. This is a blessing in disguise.”
Ni Zhuang said: “You can’t see now, so you will focus more on what you hear. You will have a deeper understanding of the lines, because sometimes, the voice alone can also impress the reader. This is also the charm of the performance…”
Ruan Yan replied, “Thank you, Teacher Ni, for your advice. Even if I can’t see it, I will listen to more dramas at home, and I won’t forget the basic skills.”
Ni Zhuang patted her hand, “Teacher believes in you. If you need help during this period, you can tell me. You can also come to me for drama.”
After meeting Mr Ni Zhuang in the morning, Zhu Xingzhi came to pick Ruan Yan out at the agreed time in the afternoon.
Today was a comfortable and cool ten degrees, without the big sun, so Zhu Xingzhi drove to the riverside, wanting to walk with Ruan Yan on the plank road on the riverside, blowing air to relax.
After stopping the car, Ruan Yan took Coco and got out of the car.
If she doesn’t need special help when going out now, Ruan Yan will only bring cocoa.
The whole plank road continues to stretch forward along the river bank. It was just completed last year. It is a beautiful urban landscape in Lincheng. There are flowers and plants beside the plank road, swaying in the breeze, looking at the past, green and fresh.
“I haven’t been out for a long time, and I feel that this riverside is too beautiful.” Zhu Xingzhi sighed.
Ruan Yan held Zhu Xingzhi, and the two walked along the plank road.
“How did you go back to your hometown this time? This seems to be Zhou Mengyan’s first business trip with you, right?”
“Well, I am very happy, and I went back to see Grandma.”
“Zhou Mengyan went with you?”
“That’s good. Will you feel embarrassed when you and Zhou Mengyan go out?”
“It’s okay. In fact, he is basically busy with his own affairs during the day, and we don’t have many opportunities to communicate.”
“Yes, it’s not important during the day, so you talk in bed at night.” Zhu Xingzhi grinned, “It’s still very harmonious, right?”
“…” Ruan Yan was so embarrassed that she beat her, and was so angry that she wished Xingzhi, a young driving expert!
“By the way, I’m a little curious- did Zhou Mengyan talk to you about children?”
“You don’t have any plans to have children now, right?”
“How could there be…”
Let’s not say that Ruan Yan hasn’t graduated yet. Zhou Mengyan has never mentioned this to her since he got married. Every time before he rolls the bed, a man will take protective measures.
Zhu Xingzhi struggled for a while and asked her doubts:
“Did he take into account that it is still too early, or is he not planning to have children with you?”
“I do not know.”
Ruan Yan also doesn’t know what Zhou Mengyan’s thoughts are in her heart. She has no way to imagine what kind of mood she would be like if she had children in this kind of marriage that only tied up with interests.
She suddenly remembered the question Zhong Zhanjing asked Zhou Mengyan.
Indeed, she didn’t even know how long this marriage could last. It was too early to consider the issue of children now.
“Let’s take one step at a time. For you, just enjoy the life of Mrs Zhou now. Anyway, if you want to worry about the future, everyone will die.”
Ruan Yan smiled helplessly.
“I still feel that my life is so boring.”
“Boring? Is it because you can’t see?”
Blindness really restricts Ruan Yan’s many activities. Although she is at home, she has no material pressure, academic pressure, and a luxurious life, but every day feels like it passes, emptily. Looking back, it feels like just repeating the day. It is indeed monotonous.
“Yanyan, I feel that you have nothing to do that makes you feel bored. If you don’t consider your eyes, what do you want to do most now?”
She remembered the conversation with Ni Zhuang this morning.
“…I want to act in a drama.”
This is her favorite thing.
“This time I went to Sucheng, I met a female high school classmate of Zhou Mengyan,” Ruan Yan thought of Zhong Zhanjing, “I especially envied her living condition, independence, and love direction, but I feel that now that I say it, they all are unrealistic expectations.”
Zhu Xingzhi rubbed her head and held her shoulders, “It’s okay, wait until your eyes are ready, what do you want to do! Seriously, you have to like drama, I will get two tickets, let’s go see it together, to be precise, you are going to listen, but will you feel closer to what you like and not so uncomfortable?”
Ruan Yan’s brain brightened, “Okay…”
This is better than her being moldy at home.
“This is called ‘listening to plums to quench thirst’.”
Ruan Yan was amused by her, Zhu Xingzhi: “How are you doing with acupuncture recently? Is it better?”
“The effect is not so obvious, but it feels like it is recovering.”
Zhu Xingzhi is still the old saying and continues to insist on treatment.
After strolling around Jiangbin, the two returned on their original path.
Zhu Xingzhi went to the vending machine at the entrance of the parking lot and bought two bottles of water. After returning to the car, she unscrewed the cap and put Lemon Vitamin C in Ruan Yan’s hands. “Why is your husband looking for you?”
Just before getting on the bus, Ruan Yan received a call from Zhou Mengyan.
“He said he had something to go to the nursing home tonight and asked me if I wanted to see my dad. I said yes.”
“What do you say now? Where should I send you?”
“Send me to the Fan Moni Group.” Zhou Mengyan knew that Ruan Yan was outside, so he asked her to come directly to the company after he was busy, instead of waiting for a while and returning home to pick her up.
Hearing that Ruan Yan was going to Fan Moni, Zhu Xingzhi’s eyes lit up and took her hand: “Yanyan, I have something to tell you.”
Ruan Yan heard her suddenly pleased, and immediately guessed the careful thought of her girlfriend, “What do you want to do?”
“Please do me a favor.”
Zhu Xingzhi smiled slyly, “I want to buy a Fan Moni handbag, a special model of the Shadow of autumn series that I just posted, the world’s top limited edition luxury model, only 500, but I can’t buy it. I want it next month. To participate in Paris Fashion Week, if I can get such a bag to attend and kill the audience in seconds, I will be crazy.”
“…Are you buying a bag crazy demon?” Ruan Yan heard that Zhu Xingzhi had just bought a six-figure bag two days ago.
“This bag is particularly difficult to buy. The ladies and young women around me can’t buy it even if they want to break their heads.”
Zhu Xingzhi hugged her arm and acted like a baby: “Bag is my life, which girl doesn’t love me, Yanyan I beg you, just take out your distinguished presidential wife status and help me ask your husband?”
Ruan Yan is entangled, she has never mentioned this to Zhou Mengyan…
“Just ask for me? If it doesn’t work, just forget it, woof, just treat it as a benefit for your girlfriend, and I will promise you whatever you ask.”
On the way to send Ruan Yan to the company, Zhu Xingzhi acted spoiled and finally let Ruan Yan agree.
“Yanyan, you love me the most.”
Zhu Xingzhi led her out of the car and hugged her happily.
“Hey, we’re at the door of the company…”
“I’d take you in.”
Zhu Xingzhi led Ruan Yan into the Fan Moni Building. As soon as she walked in, Ye Qing who was waiting greeted her: “Madam, you are here, I will take you upstairs to find Mr. Zhou first, he is not finished yet.”
So Zhu Xingzhi left, and Ruan Yan was supported by Ye Qing to the exclusive elevator.
As the floor went up, Ruan Yan’s heart couldn’t help but hang up.
This is the first time she came to work in Zhou Mengyan.
On the floor, Ye Qing: “Madam, here it is.”
Ruan Yan was escorted out of the elevator. This entire floor is the core office area of the President of Fan Moni, and there are several large conference rooms.
Ruan Yan walked forward, stepped on the ground of Microsoft, and smelled the faint scent in the air, which seemed to be a fragrance specially designed for this building, with a little bit of gardenia and jasmine.
The environment here is very quiet, Ruan Yan can feel the efficient office atmosphere.
And she walked five meters further, and there were two rows of people in suits and ties standing on both sides. The employees of the President’s Office saw Ruan Yan and bowed: “Hello, Mrs President——”
Ruan Yan was slightly surprised.
How do they all know…
Her cheeks are slightly red, and the corners of her lips are raised to say hello to everyone. Everyone smiled and responded enthusiastically.
Support to my work would be amazing and would really mean a lot, if you enjoy my work, kindly consider buying me a coffee!
