Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 68

“However, it will be more difficult for you to act like this. The line is one aspect. You spend more time on the line. You have to be psychologically prepared.”
Qi Qian said, “You think about it. If you really have this idea, I support you very much.”
Qi Qian’s words were like a stone thrown into the calm lake in her heart, causing waves.
Her original loss instantly turned into excitement, constantly thinking about the possibilities Qi Qian said.
She is like this now, can she act in a drama?
Maybe she can really try it?
Once this idea is completely catalyzed, it will thrive and become irresistible.
In the evening two days later, Ruan Yan hesitated for a long time, and decided to tell Zhou Mengyan what she thought, and listen to his opinions.
In the bedroom, she was sitting by the bed and heard Zhou Mengyan just coming out of the bathroom.
She called to him: “Meng Yan, are you free? I want to talk to you.”
The man wiped the water droplets on his black hair with a towel, then walked to her, “What’s the matter?”
She struggled for a while and spoke her mind:
“I plan to act a drama.”
When Zhou Mengyan heard this, he frowned, “Acting a drama?”
Ruan Yan guessed that he must be surprised.
“Yes, my eyes are getting better now, right? I want to play some simple roles, even without lines.”
Zhou Mengyan sat on the sofa opposite her, under the black hair that was dripping with water drops, and looked at her with black eyes: “Did you go to a drama with your friend the last two weeks?”
“Well… what’s wrong?”
“After watching a drama, are you going to perform it?”
Ruan Yan was stunned and understood what he meant that she thought she was hot for three minutes, “No, I liked it before and I also acted…”
Seeing that the man did not say a word, she added:
“I don’t have anything to do at home every day. I don’t want to be idle and be a vase.”
Her life was just like the world she sees with her eyes now, with no focus and no center.
She didn’t want to live a canary life very early. Assuming that Zhou Mengyan is no longer with her, what else does she have? She wants to do what she likes and make her life more fulfilling and happier. This was her simple little wish.
The room was quiet for a long time, and the man finally spoke:
“You imagine things too simple.”
Zhou Mengyan raised his eyes to look at her:
“No matter what else, how can you step onto the stage if you can’t see it? If there is another accident, what would you do?” She can’t see it, and the safety of the drama is difficult to guarantee. What would she do if hit she something or fell?
Ruan Yan suddenly became silent.
It was indeed inconvenient for her to do a lot of things now, and she has some difficulties even taking care of herself completely, but she thinks these can be overcome…
Zhou Mengyan calmly and rationally explained his reasons, “Acting a drama is not a matter of touching your lips. The lines, positions, expressions, etc., these are the most basic, which are very difficult for you.”
Ruan Yan retorted in a low voice: “I can practice.”
She would try her best to complete it.
“If you just feel that life is boring and want to have some fun to relieve your boredom, you can go shopping and travel, stay at home, read books and play the piano. It is not necessary to choose this.” He had a light tone.
“I’m not looking for fun…”
She had a very soft voice.
His denial of her was like a needle pierced into her heart.
In his eyes, does he think that her greatest value is to be a vase-like Mrs Zhou? In his heart, he felt that she couldn’t do it at all, so she could only stay at home, live a life of pampering and being cared for.
“When your eyes are completely healed, you can do whatever you want.”
Ruan Yan turned her head to one side and was so angry that she didn’t want to bother him.
Seeing her stubborn and aggrieved little expression, Zhou Mengyan’s tone still did not slow down, “I don’t recommend you to do such a thing during this time period. Think about it yourself.”
The man got up and walked out of the bedroom.
Perhaps because of this conversation that did not reach a consensus, Ruan Yan and Zhou Mengyan had little communication or physical contact for the next two days, and the relationship between the two suddenly dropped.
The servants in the family could see that Ruan Yan was not in a good mood, and they were aware of the subtle atmosphere between her and Zhou Mengyan.
In the morning, she sat on the bay window in a daze, and finally decided to call Gu Yuan.
“Grandma… I want to tell you something.”
Gu Yuan laughed, “Yanyan would say whatever she wants, I would listen.”
Ruan Yan told Gu Yuan about the things that had been tangled for a long time recently. After Gu Yuan listened, “Grandma, do you support me in acting?”
Suddenly she didn’t know how to choose.
Zhou Mengyan’s words are heart-wrenching, but they are true. From the most objective point of view, he gave an analysis to weigh the pros and cons.
“As long as Yanyan likes it, I will support it unconditionally.”
Ruan Yan’s heart warmed up and teased herself, “…but I’m also afraid that I won’t be able to do it on my own. What should I do if I am embarrassed on the stage?”
Gu Yuan smiled, “I don’t believe it, my dear baby is so smart, right?”
“Grandma, you are so kind…”
Ruan Yan really likes this feeling of being trusted unconditionally.
Gu Yuan finally said to her, “If you want to do it, don’t ask about your future. Even if you try, you will not regret it if you don’t succeed. The most important thing is that you know what you want.”
The night after finishing the phone call with Gu Yuan, Ruan Yan reopened the video of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” that she had acted in.
After the performance of the drama at that time, it caused a sensation in the whole school. For three consecutive days, it was full of friends. Many people in the drama school also knew the name of Ruan Yan. Not only was she a financial scholar, but she also had a talent for acting.
At that time, Ruan Yan was regarded as the most arrogant girl in drama.
Because she had an innate charm of acting, she could play each role in a real and natural way, and bring her own unique imprint, no matter what kind of personality, she could control it.
Only now, the scenery is no longer as before.
She put on the headphones and listened to the conversation inside. Then she couldn’t help standing up, facing the floor-to-ceiling window, and following her own lines inside, she couldn’t help but recite.
She read the lines, added gestures and facial expressions, gradually getting better, and then reset the progress bar to the beginning, performing by herself.
The girl was intoxicated, and she didn’t know that the bedroom door behind her was opened.
Zhou Mengyan finished his work, returned to the bedroom, opened the door and saw Ruan Yan, who was performing well.
“Dad, sorry. I can’t be his wife. I don’t love him. I have fallen in love with Lysander.”
“Demetrius once said that he loves my friend Helena…”
Zhou Mengyan’s eyes were surprised.
Ruan Yan, who was in front of him, is wanton and lively and energetic, with a focused and serious expression on her face, her eyes seem to shine, and she seems to be totally not alone in her restrained and quiet peace.
She was like a proud little peacock, full of confidence.
She had never shown this appearance in front of him.
“We meet in the forest, please pray for us, and don’t tell others, goodbye, Helena.”
Ruan Yan finished reciting the last line of the first act, and was overjoyed to find that because of the long-term contact, the feeling of acting was not unfamiliar to her because she was blind.
She was happy when she suddenly heard a sound behind her.
She was taken aback, turned her head immediately, and saw the outline of a certain someone standing at the door.
“You, when did you come in?”
Why didn’t he make a sound? He wouldn’t just have all…
Zhou Mengyan walked in, closed the door, and met her eyes: “You were just performing.”
Ruan Yan recalled her performance just now, and her face immediately blushed.
She stood there, but suddenly remembered what he said to her the previous two nights, “You imagined things too simple”, and her emotions rolled over.
The room fell silent. Zhou Mengyan saw that she had no intention of speaking anymore, so he withdrew his gaze, and walked to the cloakroom, and suddenly heard her voice:
“Wait, I want to say something to you.”
Zhou Mengyan turned and looked at her.
Ruan Yan approached the silhouette of the man, and finally stood in front of him.
She lowered her head, spoke in the bottom of her heart for a while, and finally raised her face, her white cheeks were a little red, but she said firmly and earnestly:
“I like drama, not the three-minute enthusiasm you said, to pass the time. Although I did not choose to study my favorite drama school in college, it has always been a dream I love. I have liked drama since I was a kid. I performed at that time and won the first prize.
I have never mentioned it to you, because I know that you are not interested in my life and would not want to understand, but I want to tell you… I am serious. “
Ruan Yan, with little self-confidence, strives for her own reason:
“I have considered the question you mentioned before. Although I can’t see, I’d use my mobile phone and try to memorize it after listening.
I will also try to adapt to the stage, understand the position, walk the stage over and over again, so that the audience will not see that I have visual impairment. There are still many difficulties, and I will overcome them to make sure not to cause trouble to others.”
Ruan Yan: “I know things are not that simple, but before I try it, please don’t think I can’t do it, just in case…”
What if she succeeds!
Zhou Mengyan looked down at her.
Ruan Yan clenched her palms, like a little rabbit whose tail was stomped on, mustered up the courage, and took the words that had been held in her heart for a long time back.
“In short, Zhou Mengyan, you can’t just touch your mouth and say I can’t!”
