Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 73
After it was over, he looked at Ruan Yan, with an emotion in his heart, but his face remained unchanged, “It’s okay, start all over again.”
After several rehearsals, Ruan Yan’s performance became more and more handy, and her coordination with Shu Ting Lu became better.
After Cui Zimo said that she could play the next game, Ruan Yan relieved her burden, and Shu Ting Lu said to her, “You played well.”
“Thank you Sister Lu.” She was very happy to be praised.

Ye Qing took Ruan Yan aside to rest. A few boys approached her and chatted with her, “Ruan Yan, you are so cute!”
“Yes, the performance was very good.”
Ruan Yan smiled and thanked them. After they left, she asked Ye Qing, “You have recorded what I played just now. You can listen to me later.”
In the afternoon, Bu Jia came to the scene to give guidance. Ruan Yan had the second and last scene in the fifth act- giving the male lead a watch.
It was raining in this scene. Before leaving for the airport, Shen Nan, played by Yin Zheng, waited at the door of the house for the heroine who had agreed to come. However, the heroine was still reluctant to face the separation and asked her sister to hand over the envelope and watch.
The protagonist waited in the rain for a long time, until it exceeded the agreed time by fifteen minutes. He thought that the female lead would not be coming, and dragged the suitcase to get into the car. At this time, Ruan Yan caught up.
However, what Ruan Yan did not expect was that the difficulty in this scene was not her interaction with the male lead, but the action of running out from the right side of the stage to catch up.
Because she couldn’t see clearly, she had a subconscious fear of running.
When the director started shouting, she hesitated and ran out. After two steps, she was stopped by Bu Jia. He joked, “Ruan Yan, when you ran, it is estimated that Yin Zheng had already taken the car to the airport.”
Everyone present laughed.
Ruan Yan was embarrassed.
“You have to run out of that very urgent feeling. If you are anxious, you must see the male lead, understand?”
Ruan Yan felt that her legs were a little weaker. When she ran for the third time, who knew that because she couldn’t see clearly and couldn’t grasp the distance, she almost ran into Yin Zheng.
“Are you okay?” Yin Zheng held her arm.
Bu Jia stepped forward and understood Ruan Yan’s problem, and said, “What should I do? If you run unnaturally, the audience underneath won’t understand.”
Ruan Yan: “Director, you can rest assured, I will practice well in private, absolutely no problem.”
She will never let these things affect her performance.
Yin Zheng: “Walk, or don’t run away first and take a picture of the dialogue afterwards?”
Because of the seven or eighty-eight reasons, after rehearsing today’s play, it was already nearly seven in the evening.
Everyone packed their things and prepared to go back. When they saw that Ruan Yan hadn’t planned to leave, they asked her. Ruan Yan said she wanted to stay here and practice again.
Cui Zimo and others walked out, and the friend beside him said, “Ruan Yan is really a hardworking girl.”
Cui Zimo raised the corner of his mouth, “Isn’t it right to be able to make up for one’s weaknesses with diligence?”
“Oh, I said, you are too strict, and there is no compliment to others. Anyway, she surprised me today.”
Cui Zimo looked forward and did not speak.
Only Ruan Yan was left in the theater. She teased Coco for a while, and Ye Qing returned after buying the meal.
The two sat in their seats and ate, Ruan Yan said with emotion, “Thanks for your hard work, and staying with me.”
“It’s okay, madam.”
“Wait a moment, you will accompany me to the opposite scene on the stage.”

In order to overcome her fear, she first asked Ye Qing to lead her. Ye Qing ran ahead and she was behind.
This scene was a raining scene. There were no lights in the auditorium, only a few beams of light in the middle of the stage, so when Ye Qing symbolically turned off a few beams of light, Ruan Yan felt almost darkness in front of her eyes, even scarier than in the afternoon.
After several attempts, she was still a little timid and couldn’t overcome it.
No, this won’t work.
She asked Ye Qing to stand aside, she ran on her own and could not rely on others.
After she took a deep breath, she planned to summon the courage to challenge her mentality. Who knew that she only wanted to run fast, but her left foot accidentally tripped her right foot. She was thrown forward and fell directly on the ground.
“Madam, are you okay!” Ye Qing rushed up.
Ruan Yan: “…”
Oh my God, can she be a little more stupid TvT
She felt hot pain in both knees. She was helped to stand up, patted the dust on her hands, and smiled easily, “It’s okay, it’s okay.”
Ye Qing heard a “bang” sound when she fell down, so how was it okay?
Ruan Yan rubbed her knees and stood upright, “I will do it again.”
“Do it again?! Madam, otherwise you should stop practicing and take a break.”
She shook her head and said, “I have to practice. It doesn’t matter if I fall now. It will be embarrassing to fall during the performance at that time.”
Running in the dark was difficult. Ruan Yan usually doesn’t even dare to walk fast, let alone running.
But she believes that that fearful emotion can be overcome slowly.
It was almost nine o’clock before Ruan Yan and Ye Qing left the troupe.
On the other side, in the quiet and quaint box*, the light was scattered, the marble round table slowly turned, and the man beside him got up and smiled, adding wine to Zhou Mengyan’s cup.
T/N: A box is a private/booked room in a restaurant.
The man sat in the middle, with sparks extinguished at his fingertips, his face was cold, and the light above his head fell on his distinct jaw line, drawing a perfect outline.
He talked quietly with the people around him, his eyes raised and restrained, indifferent.
After three rounds of drinking, the dinner came to an end.
After everyone removed the topic from Zhou Mengyan, Zhou Mengyan’s phone vibrated suddenly and a message popped up.
From Ye Qing.
The man’s eyes fell on the screen of his mobile phone, and he explained the general situation of Ruan Yan today.
The words “fell down” at the end are particularly conspicuous.
After reading the information, he locked the phone screen.
After a while, the dinner was over and everyone went out. Yang Kangjian of the Yang Group walked to Zhou Mengyan and smiled, “Zhou Mengyan, would you like to show your face and sit in the Mi’an Club? The box has been booked.”
Not to mention Yang Kangjian, anyone with experience around him could hear the hint.
Probably no one will refuse to feast and play, with beautiful women as companions.
Zhou Mengyan turned his ring finger’s wedding ring unconsciously, and his voice was weak, “No, there’s something else I have to do.”
Yang Kangjian lowered his head and noticed his ring, so he laughed and said it was okay.
After Rolls-Royce drove out, the man in the back seat said, “Is Ruan Yan over there?”
Jiang Cheng: “Your wife has gone home.”
The car finally stopped in front of the Yinan Mansion, Jiang Cheng opened the rear door and Zhou Mengyan got out of the car.
Arriving on the second floor of the villa, the man first glanced into the bedroom, with a dark lamp inside, quietly, then he stepped towards Ruan Yan’s study.
Ruan Yan nestled on the sofa, muttering to consolidate today’s lines, and suddenly heard a knock on the door.
“Please come in.”
She turned her face and saw that the door was pushed open, and the figure at the door was tall and thin.
Ruan Yan heard him approach, put down her phone, and bent her lips slightly, “Are you also just coming back?”
He sat down beside her, “Yeah.”
Ruan Yan smelled the scent of alcohol and tobacco on his body, and guessed that he went out to socialize, she said softly, “I also just came back from the troupe.”
As soon as her voice fell, she felt him wrap his arm around her waist, her body was in front of him, half of her leg was placed on his thigh, then she felt the skirt being lifted.
Zhou Mengyan knew that she had fallen, but the moment he pulled up her skirt, he was still stunned–
A large area, bruised to a blackish green on both knees was shocking, and it contrasted sharply with the white skin around it.
She was taken aback, thinking that he was going to do something unscrupulous. Who knew she heard the man’s slightly deep voice, “How did this happen?”
Ruan Yan: !!
How did he know?!
She quickly covered her knees with her skirt, “No, I accidentally fell while rehearsing today…”
Zhou Mengyan asked in a cool voice:
“Did you go to rehearse or fight?”
Ruan Yan narrowed her mouth and retorted in a low voice, “This is really accidental.”
“Haven’t I talked to you about safety before? Are you going to play a drama and knock your whole body over?”

Ruan Yan: “…”
Was it that serious?
Ruan Yan thought he was so fierce, and she didn’t know why he was so fierce.
After both of them were silent for a while, the man spoke again, “Have you taken medicine?”
“It doesn’t matter, I don’t have to, I think it will disappear after a few days?”
The man did not answer.
She took the initiative to obediently say, “Go! I’ll get the medicine right away.”
