Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 74
Ruan Yan was taken back to the bedroom by Zhou Mengyan. She sat by the bed and said that the medicine box seemed to be under the vanity mirror, and then Zhou Mengyan went to get it.
After he finished taking the medicine, he sat back next to Ruan Yan, and the girl said, “Take out the bottle of active oil and give it to me.”
She poured some activating oil in her palms, folded her palms, warmed them, and rubbed her knees.
She moved very lightly because she was afraid of pain, so in Zhou Mengyan’s eyes, it was like she was rubbing cotton.

How could this be effective…
The man had no choice but to tighten his eyelashes, and the next moment he held her slender calf with his palm. Ruan Yan did not react, and was pulled to his side. Her calf was itchy and she wanted to withdraw it. However, he was so strong that she couldn’t escape.
He covered her knees with his palms and began to rub.
Ruan Yan winced in pain. The force he used was at least twice as strong as her strength. She squeezed the back of the sofa so hard, her fingertips turned white.
“It hurts, please don’t…”
The girl wrinkled her eyebrows, her small white porcelain face seemed to be wrinkled, and her pained voice was soft, she couldn’t help being a little bit squeamish, something that could only be heard when Zhou Mengyan was teasing her on the bed.
However, the man’s actions at this moment did not bring pity to Ruan Yan at all, and he raised his eyes to look at her, “You know it hurts now?”
The underlying meaning of this was- You know the pain, still you had to act in the play?
Ruan Yan bit her red lips and stubbornly refrained from shouting.
She knew that Zhou Mengyan still felt she couldn’t do it in her heart. She wanted to act well in order to prove herself to him. She didn’t want to… shame him.
After a while, his movements were quiet and soft.
Ruan Yan could actually feel that he had her best interest heart, and the bottom of her heart has gradually become softer. She was close to him, her eyes slightly lowered, her lips faintly curled, and she actively said:
“Meng Yan, it was finally my turn to rehearse my scene today.”
Her voice fell gently on his ears, as if scratching it, his hand stopped, and he didn’t raise his head, “Well, how did it go?”
Seeing that he was willing to listen, Ruan Yan was very happy to tell him about the process of acting today.
In fact, she really liked to share stories with others, but Zhou Mengyan never asked or understood before. She didn’t talk much in front of him.
After she finished speaking, Zhou Mengyan asked, “Will you go to the theater tomorrow?”
“I can rest on weekends.”
She also felt that she had to combine work and rest. If every day in her mind was on drama, she would be under great pressure.
So this weekend she planned to stay at home, read a book, play the piano, and do some leisure activities.
Upon hearing this, Zhou Mengyan mentioned the weekend arrangements, “Oula will hold a new product launch conference on Sunday afternoon. Do you want to go?”
“New product launch conference?”
Zhou Mengyan said that it was a new watch designed by Oula for several months and it would be officially launched in China this weekend.
This is also why Zhou Mengyan was mainly busy during this time, and it was also the first battle that Oula would fight after it rose up again.
Ruan Yan hadn’t had any intentions to pay attention to Oula’s affairs recently. He only heard that the company had recently carried out drastic reforms under Zhou Mengyan’s hands. It turned out that new products had been designed recently.
Ruan Yan was very happy to hear the news, but she was skeptical. She couldn’t see it. It seemed that it wouldn’t matter if she went or not… Maybe she might see the Ruan family that she didn’t want to meet.
He saw through her thoughts, “Go if you want, don’t force it.”
In the end, Ruan Yan said she’d think about it and give him a reply afterwards.
On Saturday morning, Ruan Yan slept comfortably because she didn’t need to go to the troupe.
After waking up, she ran out to get breakfast, went to the game room to find Coco and played with him for a while.
Zhu Xingzhi called her and asked her how she was rehearsing the drama this week, “Can you cope?”
“It’s not bad, but more practice is needed.”
“What are your arrangements for this afternoon?”
“As usual, do acupuncture.” Now that her eyes were half clear, she should insist on treatment.
After chatting for a while, Zhu Xingzhi sat on the soft chair, looked sideways and picked up the invitation letter on the table beside her, remembering something, holding back and asking excitedly:
“By the way, you’re going to the new product launch conference of Oula, right?”
Ruan Yan was puzzled. She didn’t expect Zhu Xingzhi to mention this, “What’s wrong? You know about this too?”
“I have received the invitation letter.”
“I’m still hesitating…”
Ruan Yan just wanted to talk about the thoughts in her mind, Zhu Xingzhi was shocked: “Yanyan. Do you really not know? You’re telling me you’re hesitating?!”
“Huh? What is it?”
Zhu Xingzhi gave her a hint, “Do you not know who will be at this new product launch?”
“Duan Xingjing! My husband!”
Ruan Yan immediately bounced off the sofa and exploded in her head, thinking that she was hearing voices:
“That’s right, it’s what you think.”
“Why is he here?!!!”
“My God, it’s fine if you don’t know about your company, but you don’t even follow Duan Xingjing’s recent Weibo?! Oula’s new product, isn’t he the spokesperson?! I want to expel you from being a fan!”
Ruan Yan was dumbfounded.
Duan Xingjing can be described as a male star with stable strength and appearance in the current entertainment circle, and the only male star that Ruan Yan had admired since high school. Duan Xingjing was originally a drama actor. Ruan Yan once watched his performances in “Hamlet” and “Othello”. It was also his performance that made Ruan Yan come into contact with the field of drama.
Later, he transitioned to the entertainment industry. Because of his superb appearance and practical ability, he was completely popular, and his fanbase was huge. At that time, Ruan Yan and Zhu Xingzhi often went to class to knock on his dramas and variety shows, buy posters, and buy peripherals. It’s one of his most faithful “stars”. Although Duan Xingjing is going to run for three soon after this year, his appearance remains unchanged and his charm has increased instead of decreasing.

Duan Xingjing graduated from Lincheng Theater Academy. When Ruan Yan was a junior, she was lucky enough to have met him at a school film festival. At that time, she followed Ni Zhuang and just talked with him briefly, which made her happy. When she came back, Zhu Xingzhi envied her for a long time.
Duan Xingjing was not only a star she liked, but also a senior she admired.
She did not expect that the former would become the spokesperson of Oula, so close to her…
Oh my goodness!
Oula is too arrogant!
Zhu Xingzhi was excited: “Do you think I am interested in watches? I’m going mainly to see my husband. I can see Duan Xingjing with such a good opportunity. Are you stupid? You won’t go. You might still be able to talk to him then. Such words!”
Ruan Yan bubbled excitedly after thinking about it, how could she not go!
At noon, Ruan Yan went downstairs to eat. She saw Zhou Mengyan an the dining table and said her decision to go to the press conference.
The man sat opposite her and looked at the corners of her lips that couldn’t be suppressed. He didn’t know why she suddenly became so happy, “Have you thought about it?”
“En…” She was not ashamed to tell the truth directly, “I have time, so let’s check it out.”
Take a look at Duan Xingjing =^_^=.
Zhou Mengyan didn’t ask much when he heard it.

On Sunday afternoon, with an hour and a half before the press conference, Ruan Yan and Zhou Mengyan went to the scene.
Today Ruan Yan wore a blue tube top with a long skirt, the skirt was dotted with flowers, and on her neck was a string of vine-like diamond necklace.
The place set for the press conference was a large conference hall in an international five-star hotel in Lincheng. Ruan Yan took Zhou Mengyan into the lobby of the hotel and was first led upstairs by the welcoming staff.
The press conference had not started yet, so Zhou Mengyan arranged for Ruan Yan to sit in the lounge for a while and then come to the scene later.
Someone came to call Zhou Mengyan. The man left temporarily. Ruan Yan sat in the lounge. After a while, she received a call from Zhu Xingzhi, “Hey, where are you? I’m looking for you! Ah, ah, I’m so excited! “
Ruan Yan went out and asked the staff about the location. Zhu Xingzhi rushed over after learning about it.
The two “stars” gathered in the lounge. Zhu Xingzhi held Ruan Yan’s hand and smiled from ear to ear. Ruan Yan was stunned: “Why are you so excited?”
“I just saw Duan Xingjing at the hotel entrance just now!!”
At that time, Ryan Xingjing was guarded by the bodyguards around him and walked into the hotel. A large group of fans stood beside him calling his name. Zhu Xingzhi was also very excited. She remembered the last time she saw him, it was at the premiere of the movie starring him at the beginning of the year.
The star-chaser girl’s life had reached its peak again!
Ruan Yan raised her mouth when she heard what she said, “Hurry up, quickly describe to me what he looks like today?”
“Let me tell you, he wore a dark blue suit, wow, I love his figure, he is really good-looking in a suit, gentle and abstinent, just like a male protagonist! And he looked very white today…”
At the door, Zhou Mengyan came over and said, “En, I know.” He hung up the phone and opened the open door. He just heard the scream of Zhu Xingzhi:
“The most important thing is that Duan Xingjing smiled when he saw us! He laughed really well, so gentle!”
The two were so excited that they didn’t notice the man at the door.
Zhu Xingzhi: “I’m dead, I’m dead! I really want to have a monkey for my brother!”
When Zhou Mengyan heard such a deafening sound, his brows were lightly frowned. Who knew that the next moment he saw Ruan Yan holding Zhu Xingzhi’s hand, like a happy little sparrow:
“Don’t talk about it! I can imagine how handsome he is!!”
Ruan Yan held her flushed cheeks in her palm, and imagined his appearance, as if there were stars in her eyes:
“Why, Duan Xingjing is still so good-looking, I really like him…”
Support to my work would be amazing and would really mean a lot, if you enjoy my work, kindly consider buying me a coffee!
