Honeyed Marriage - Chapter 89
Edited by ABE
The man’s voice was low and magnetic, and the rustling fell on her ears, making her ears itchy, and her cheeks started to turn red, “Just…”

She moved her lips, and just as she was about to speak, there was a knock on the door.
The ambiguous atmosphere was broken, Ruan Yan immediately sat up straight, Zhou Mengyan coldly looked at the door:
“What is the matter?”
“Sir, Madam, dinner is ready. The old lady tells you to go downstairs, and there are guests at home.”
So the two got up. Ruan Yan was about to walk out of the bedroom and suddenly felt that her palm was being held.
Zhou Mengyan held her hand.
She felt the constant temperature in the palm of her hand, and her heart shook.
Usually Zhou Mengyan would only ask her to hold his arm. If it were needed, he would only hold her wrist and hold her hand only a very small number of times.
Both of them paused, and then he took her out of the bedroom naturally.
Ruan Yan walked, and quickly cut off the seedlings of her strange thoughts.
He should be doing it just for the purpose of bringing her downstairs. They even rolled over the sheets, holding hands and being ambiguous…
The two went downstairs. In the living room, a girl wearing a white down jacket with a ball-shaped head turned to see Zhou Mengyan. She immediately jumped up from the sofa and ran in front of him, smiling and holding his arm:
Zhou Mengyan frowned, pulled his hand back, and looked at her coldly:
The corner of Yun Lingshan’s mouth dropped, turned to look at Qin Xi, and said aggrievedly: “Aunt Qin, you see? I haven’t seen Brother Mengyan for so long, why is he still so indifferent?”
Qin Xi smiled and stepped forward, “Shanshan only came back to Lincheng during the winter vacation yesterday. Today, knowing that we have returned to China, she came over.”
Yun Lingshan lived next door to the old house. The family met a long time ago. She just entered her freshman year this year.
The girl looked at Ruan Yan next to the man and the hand they were holding:
“Is this brother Mengyan’s wife?”
Qin Xi nodded: “This is Ruan Yan, his wife, but Ruan Yan is actually only three years older than you.”
Yun Lingshan didn’t know that they were in a business marriage. When she remembered that Zhou Mengyan was about to get married some time ago, she was stunned. She didn’t expect her favorite brother from childhood to marry a wife.
Yun Lingshan reluctantly said hello, and then silently looked at Ruan Yan’s face——
She looked white and clean, and she was so cute.
Won’t one think she was younger than her?
Then Ruan Yan heard Qin Xi’s introduction to Yun Lingshan and greeted her with a smile, and the man next to her dragged her forward: “I’m eating.”
Qin Xi: “Yes, Shanshan, let’s eat.”
Yun Lingshan was led by Qin Xi and looked at Zhou Mengyan and Ruan Yan who were walking in front of her. She thought that the man hadn’t even looked at her for a few moments earlier, and her heart was even more unhappy. She had no sense of existence at all!
Sitting at the table, Ruan Yan and Zhou Mengyan sat on the side, opposite Qin Xi and Yun Lingshan, the one at the head was Zhou Sili.
After sitting down, Zhou Mengyan looked at the steak on Ruan Yan’s dinner plate, and then said: “Ruan Yan does not eat steak, please take it back.”
Ruan Yan was stunned, and heard him ask: “Give you creamy mushroom pasta?”
He unexpectedly knew her preferences.
Ruan Yan’s mouth lit up with dimples, “Okay…”
Qin Xi looked at the opposite side, surprised in her heart. Yun Lingshan beside her pouted: “Brother Mengyan, you don’t ask me what I like to eat, I want to eat pasta too.”
Zhou Mengyan raised his eyes and glanced at her lightly: “Ask for it by yourself.”
Yun Lingshan: “…”
Sure enough, there was no one else in his eyes except for his wife! Annoying!
Yun Lingshan looked at Ruan Yan, wrinkled her face and said, “Hey, Ruan Yan…”
Before she finished speaking, she raised her head to meet the man’s gaze. She immediately added a prefix: “Sister Ruan Yan—”
Ruan Yan stopped moving the knife and fork in her hand, “Huh?”
“When did you and Mengyan meet? Why didn’t I know when you fell in love?”
“We…” Ruan Yan was still wondering how to answer, Zhou Mengyan threw the words back directly:
“I still need to report to you?”
Yun Lingshan curled her lips, “I just feel like it’s a little sudden…”
Qin Xi smiled, took a dish and put it in her bowl, “Your brother Mengyan met sister-in-law Ruan Yan last year.”
“You only met last year, so you got married so soon?”
Ruan Yan thought to herself, they proposed to get married in less than a week after they knew each other [cover your face].
“Brother Mengyan, do you particularly like Sister Ruan Yan?”
A few seconds later, the man’s voice sounded:
“What do you think?”
An ambiguous answer.
Ruan Yan could hear that this was his denial in disguise.
However, in Yun Lingshan’s ears, it was such a disguised acknowledgement that she felt like she hadn’t eaten enough when she came to this meal. She ate a big bowl of dog food first.
Ruan Yan was eating, and Zhou Mengyan’s voice came from time to time in her ears, asking her what she needed. Ruan Yan thought that he was playing a love scene in front of his parents, so she tried her best to cooperate with him.
Opposite, Yun Lingshan, who was ignored during the whole process, looked at Zhou Mengyan’s almost subtle care for Ruan Yan, and felt that her worldview was gradually collapsing.
Was this still Zhou Mengyan, who she knew when she was a child, to be extremely cold?!
It turned out that people who were cold and indifferent looked like this in front of people they liked.
After the meal, Zhou Mengyan wanted to go upstairs to deal with official affairs. He originally took Ruan Yan up with him. Who knew,Yun Lingshan suddenly grabbed Ruan Yan and smiled at Zhou Mengyan: “I want to chat with Mengyan’s wife for a while. “

Yun Lingshan immediately saw the other person’s eyes, as if to say: What do you want to do?
The corners of her eyes dropped, “It’s really just a chat…”
Seeing this, Ruan Yan said, “It doesn’t matter, I just happened to want to be with my mother downstairs.”
The man finally gave Yun Lingshan a warning look, and then walked upstairs. Yun Lingshan stuck her tongue out proudly, and then looked at Ruan Yan, “Sister-in-law Ruan Yan, let’s go to the back garden. I want to go swinging on the swing.”
The wind outside in winter was a bit cold. The two sat on the swing, and the servant brought the freshly cut fruit, and then left.
Yun Lingshan was swinging on the swing, remembering the past, “When I was a kid, I would swing, and Meng Yan would often push me behind my back.”
Ruan Yan: “Have you known each other since childhood?”
“Of course, we are childhood sweethearts,” she said with a little tsundere, “I used to have a good time.”
Ruan Yan is curious: “Childhood sweethearts?”
Actually, when she met Zhou Mengyan, she was already in junior high school, and Zhou Mengyan was in college. “Yes, yes, and brother Mengyan loved me before. He often bought me a lot of things and took me to various places…”
Although many things Zhou Mengyan did were actually done by his parents, Yun Lingshan added fuel and jealousy. She said so vividly, just to imply to Ruan Yan that, even if Ruan Yan appeared, she was also Zhou Mengyan’s cutest sister next door, huh.
After hearing what she said, Ruan Yan felt that they had a lot of fun between them, “Mengyan is very good to you.”
“Of course, Mengyan likes me the most, even if you are married…”
Ruan Yan didn’t hear the second half of her words, and suddenly felt a cold wind blowing. She was so cold that her nose was itchy and she wanted to sneeze. Because of rhinitis, her eyes were also itchy.
She wiped her nose with the back of her hand and rubbed her eye sockets.
Halfway through her words, Yun Lingshan turned her head and saw her, she was suddenly shocked–
Eh eh eh!
Why were this person’s eyes suddenly red!
“You, what’s wrong with you?”
Ruan Yan shook her head, “It’s okay.”
Yun Lingshan mistakenly thought that she was going to cry, and she was dumbfounded. She didn’t do anything. When others saw her, they would think she was bullying Ruan Yan! This porcelain doll!
Ruan Yan, who was next to her, didn’t know that Yun Lingshan had made up so many scenes, but she felt too cold to bear it, “Shall we go in?”
Yun Lingshan, who followed Ruan Yan behind, thought that Ruan Yan would not talk to her anymore, and her heart throbbed.
Did I say something wrong?
Walking into the living room, Yun Lingshan looked at her and tentatively asked: “Sister-in-law Ruan Yan, you… you can see that the relationship between me and Mengyan is particularly good?”
The tip of Ruan Yan’s nose was itchy again. She endured not sneezing, but she spoke softly and muffled, as if she was being bullied: “Well…”
Yun Lingshan was completely confused.
Oh my God!
She was now looking at Ruan Yan with a guilty conscience, so she said: “Sister-in-law Ruan Yan, you go upstairs and rest, I am going home.”
Ruan Yan planned to go upstairs and get a coat.
After she left, Yun Lingshan was pacing in the living room, and the alarm bell in her head was loud–
It must be that she screamed in front of Ruan Yan. She and Mengyan were very good, and Ruan Yan was not happy. Yun Lingshan could understand this feeling. If she had a boyfriend, even a sister, who has been in front of her, telling her how good the relationship was with her boyfriend, she would also be jealous.
In fact, she liked Zhou Mengyan only as a sister liked her brother. Had Ruan Yan misunderstood?!
If Ruan Yan told Zhou Mengyan about this later, and he was going to clean her up, then she would be over…
Qin Xi walked out of the kitchen carrying fruits and saw Yun Lingshan: “Shanshan, what are you doing here alone?”
“Aunt Qin, where is Meng Yan’s study on the second floor? I have something to tell him…”
She intended to preemptively approach Zhou Mengyan to admit her mistake.
“Let the servant take you there.”
Finally, she went upstairs and knocked on the man’s study.
“Brother Mengyan, are you free…”
Zhou Mengyan raised his eyes and glanced at her, who was poking her head in, then looked down at the document again, “Just say anything.”
Seeing him seemingly unaware, Yun Lingshan walked in slowly, “Brother Mengyan… Sister-in-law Ruan Yan didn’t come to you just now, right?”
“After you finish listening… can you not scold me?”
Zhou Mengyan frowned, “What are you going to say?”
“It’s just… I seem to have upset my sister-in-law Ruan Yan just now. She seemed to be crying.”
The pen in the man’s hand stopped, and he looked up at her.
Listening to his suddenly cold voice, Yun Lingshan quickly described what happened just now, lowered her head, her voice aggrieved:
“Brother Mengyan, I was wrong. In fact, I just wanted to tease my sister-in-law casually. Who told you to ignore me during dinner? I didn’t mean it. Brother Mengyan, would you not be angry with me?”
Zhou Mengyan’s face was frosty: “Just you talking a lot?”
Yun Lingshan: “…”
Zhou Mengyan put aside his work, stood up, and walked to the door. Yun Lingshan stayed motionless and blocked the door, and the man’s face sank: “Get out of the way.”
“Go home and write your winter homework.”
Yun Lingshan cried.
Coming out of the study, Zhou Mengyan walked quickly to the bedroom, confused.
After hearing those words, was Ruan Yan really unhappy? Even misunderstood his relationship with others?
Pushing open the bedroom door, he saw Ruan Yan sitting cross-legged in front of the sofa, blowing her nose.
His eyebrows sank, and he walked quickly to her side, propped his hands on the sofa, bent down to look at her red eyes, and his voice was low and hoarse:
“Do not cry.”
“Huh?” She was stunned at first why he came over suddenly, and then she didn’t understand what he meant, “What did you say?”
The man sat down, put his hands behind her, and half-circled her in his arms, “Did you cry just now?”
Ruan Yan: ?
“I didn’t cry…”
“Your eyes are red, are you still going to hide it from me?”
Ruan Yan shook her head and explained: “No, I was so cold that I had rhinitis… I rubbed it red.”
This person is so strange.
Zhou Mengyan looked at her expression and knew that she was unhappy, and pretended to him without saying anything.
So does she care about him? Would she be jealous for him?
He resisted the urge to pull her into his arms, “Yun Lingshan asked me just now, did she tell you something about me and her?”
“En, what’s wrong?”
“She and I are just ordinary neighbors.”
Since childhood, he has only liked Ruan Yan, and he has never been ambiguous with other girls. Even if it was the sister next door, he does not want Ruan Yan to misunderstand him.
However, Ruan Yan, who was on another brainwave channel, was even more confused when she heard that, “Huh?”
“Don’t think too much, there is nothing between me and her.” Seeing Ruan Yan’s look confused, he added, “It’s like… you explained to me at the beginning, the relationship between you and Xin Mingzhe is the same.”
Ruan Yan suddenly realized.
“Are you afraid of my misunderstanding?”
“You have been thinking too much, I have not misunderstood it. And have you forgotten what you said at the beginning?”

Ruan Yanyun smiled lightly and thoughtfully recalled for him:
“You said these things have nothing to do with the contract between us, so I didn’t care at all, you don’t need to explain to me~”
Zhou Mengyan: “…”
It turned out that the pit he dug himself was here.
ABE: This is the kind of misunderstanding I like. :)) Yun Lingshan, I’m glad you’re not that shameless. I want to shake Ruan Yan awake though. So oblivious! *flips table*
Support to my work would be amazing and would really mean a lot, if you enjoy my work, kindly consider buying me a coffee!
