Edited by ABE
Ruan Yan was confused when she heard this, “What?”

Zhou Mengyan didn’t answer, but he retracted his gaze and walked towards the door of his house.
She was dumbfounded.
What did this man mean?
“Madam, let me take you in.” The maid interrupted her thoughts.
Ruan Yan now only had the chocolate cake in her mind!!
When she went to the living room, she put the cake box on the coffee table and the maid went to the dining room to get a knife and fork to help her cut the cake.
Zhou Mengyan poured himself a cup of warm water. When he came out of the kitchen, he saw Ruan Yan sitting on the sofa, holding the dinner plate in her hand, taking a bite of the cake, and chewing slowly. Her mouth was full of cake.
Sure enough, girls were easily satisfied.
Zhou Mengyan stepped forward and sat down diagonally to her right.
“Is it delicious?”
Ruan Yan nodded when she heard his voice, licked the corner of her lips with the tip of her tongue, and dropped her head: “But I can only eat this piece.”
She whispered: “I am now in a drama. If I’m too fat, it won’t look good on stage.”
She also knows what a terrible crime it was to eat cream cake late at night.
The man frowned slightly: “Some people say you are fat?”
“No, I think so.”
Zhou Mengyan said: “Then can you see how thin you are now?”
He usually hugs her in his arms effortlessly.
Ruan Yan admitted that any girl would be very happy to hear such words. She raised her lips and scooped up the cake, “I mean keeping in shape.”
“If you are too thin, it will affect the body’s natural health and beauty. With poor resistance, few energy reserves, fatigue, lack of physical strength, etc., the possibility of illness is also higher. Do you think this physical fitness can carry it? Do you start acting as a drama?
Zhou Mengyan explained calmly.
She immediately said honestly: “I promise not to deliberately lose weight.”
“You need to deliberately gain weight.”
Zhou Mengyan stood up, glanced at her and her chocolate cake, “Eat if you want. You are now so thin, you don’t need to stay in shape yet.”
The man went upstairs.
Ruan Yan sat on the spot, blinked her eyes, and went over his words carefully.
Although spoken coldly, it was a bit nice to hear…
The drama “Time and You” had been a great success for three consecutive nights. Tickets for the last night were sold out early, there were no seats, and the response was particularly good.
With the end of the celebration banquet, the drama finally came to an end in Ruan Yan’s life.
Without receiving notice of the new drama, Ruan Yan would rest at home or treat her eyes. Compared with the previous time, she didn’t need to be so busy.
In late January, the days were gradually approaching the New Year.
Ruan Yan was reading in the study in the morning and suddenly received a call from Chen Rongyu.
“Yanyan has been so busy recently. How long has it been since you called?” The man’s joking voice was lazy and had a hint of a smile.
Ruan Yan was ashamed: “I was really busy the past few weeks… What is uncle doing now?”
“Just finished breakfast, and I’m going to take your grandma to go shopping outside.”
“Grandma?” Ruan Yan asked, “You’re back home?!”
The man hummed, “I just got home yesterday, and I have been busy with work. It is estimated that I will stay for more than half a month.”
Ruan Yan was surprised, “Great.”
“So should you come back to see your uncle? Or are you too busy? So I shouldn’t invite you?”
Ruan Yan smiled: “No! Then I’ll book a plane ticket and try to go back soon.”
In the evening, Zhou Mengyan returned from the company. Ruan Yan told him the arrangements for returning to Sucheng the next day. “I’m going back to see grandma, and see my uncle.”
Zhou Mengyan heard this and turned his eyes to look at her: “How many days are you going to be gone for?”

Today was Tuesday, “I’d stay for three or four days, I should be back on Sunday.”
He was silent. After a while, he replied, “Let Ye Qing accompany you.”
“Okay.” Ruan Yan got up, “I’m going to take a bath.”
The bathroom door closed. Zhou Mengyan looked back at the little duck yellow suitcase next to the closet and lowered his eyelashes.
The next day, accompanied by Ye Qing, Ruan Yan took Coco and flew to Sucheng.
Out of Sucheng Airport, Chen Rongyu’s assistant came to pick her up. After half an hour drive, the car drove to the door of the old villa.
Ruan Yan was helped out of the car by Ye Qing and heard the voice of her grandmother Gu Yuan behind the iron fence: “She’s finally here— ”
The girl was taken forward, and then smiled and took Gu Yuan’s arm: “Grandma, why are you here? Did you come to pick me up? It’s too cold.”
Gu Yuan touched her arm, “Are you cold, why do you wear so little? What kind of dog is this?”
“It’s called Coco, and it’s my guide dog. “
Gu Yuan touched Coco’s head, “It’s quite obedient.”
“Grandma, let’s go in, it’s cold outside.”
The two walked into the villa, and Ruan Yan asked where her uncle was, curious. Gu Yuan said he was there. He went upstairs and would be down soon.
Ruan Yan sat down on the solid wood sofa, and the servant brought the white fungus soup. Gu Yuan said, “Come on, drink some white fungus soup to warm your stomach.”
Ruan Yan took a sip, “Wow, it’s delicious.”
Gu Yuan asked softly, “That’s right. Where’s Meng Yan? Is he busy with work?”
Ruan Yan nodded.
Zhou Mengyan was even busier at the end of the year. She knew that he must have no time, so yesterday she didn’t ask if he would come back together.
“Drink, I’ll take a look at the kitchen.”
Ruan Yan leaned on the back of the sofa, humming softly, drinking white fungus soup leisurely, and suddenly heard Chen Rongyu’s deep voice coming from her side: “So happy as soon as you come home?”
Ruan Yan quickly turned her head and saw the fuzzy figure standing on the right side of the sofa. She smiled sharply: “Uncle–“
Chen Rongyu wore a dark gray sweater with one hand in his pocket, facing her. There was a sporadic gentle smile on the corners of his lips.
He walked over to Ruan Yan and sat down and looked at her: “Did you miss me?”
Ruan Yan smiled and took his hand, “I thought about you, especially.”
He raised his hand and rubbed her head: “Let me see. Your condition has been pretty good recently?” It was much better than when she had just become blind.
“Well, I have recently started acting in a drama, and my daily life can be enriched.”
“How rich? Tell me about it.”
Ruan Yan and he talked a big deal, vividly. Chen Rongyu finished listening with a smile, and his eyes fell on the small suitcase next to her, “Zhou Mengyan didn’t come back with you?”
“How does he treat you during this marriage? Does he bully you?”
Ruan Yan shook her head and murmured softly, “Actually … Meng Yan is very good to me.”
Chen Rongyu did not expect that he would hear such comments from Ruan Yan.
He has known Zhou Mengyan for so many years. He didn’t know him to be soft with others. Besides, it is still a contractual marriage.
“Zhou Mengyan threatened you to tell me this, huh?”
“Ah? No, what I said is true…”
He squeezed the girl’s face, and the corners of his lips curled up: “If you are bullied anyway, remember to talk to me. I said I will always stand by my niece.”
Ruan Yan nodded.
After Gu Yuan came in, the three of them sat in the living room chatting. Ruan Yan asked about Chen Rongyu’s arrangements for the coming year, and the other party said that he was considering whether to return to China.
He thought of something and said:
“Maybe I’d not go abroad for some personal reasons.”
“Private reasons? Isn’t it for someone you like?” Ruan Yan chuckled.
He curled his lips, “Would you like to introduce someone to me?”
“Yes, let me pay attention to it for you. But you have been abroad for so long, don’t you have a girlfriend?”

The younger uncle obviously had good looks and education. With a degree, how can it be difficult to find a girlfriend with such excellent conditions!
Chen Rongyu’s eyes twitched slightly, “Then I’d wait for you to introduce me.”
Support to my work would be amazing and would really mean a lot, if you enjoy my work, kindly consider buying me a coffee!
