Li Huairou maintained the rhythm of releasing one album every year, sang theme songs in her spare time, held concerts, and spent her days in leisure in the entertainment industry.
When the movie Youth they collaborated with was released, Li Huairou also attended as the singer of the theme song at the premiere ceremony. But when she saw the relationship between Cao Rui and Jiang Xinyue, it didn’t look that way.
Oh gods, this was an official match. Cao Rui’s career as a director started with Youth, and then one thing led to another. As he was the director, Jiang Xinyue’s beauty under his camera was incomparable. He could always discover a different side of her. The cooperation between them was known as a perfect match. In fact, in the plot, from the beginning of Youth, some people speculated that Cao Rui liked Jiang Xinyue, because if there was no love, how could he take a picture of a person so beautifully?
However, toward such rumors, Cao Rui and Jiang Xinyue never responded.
Jiang Xinyue looked at the distressed Li Huairou and laughed dumbly. She really couldn’t think of anything worthy of Li Huairou’s expression.
But when she learned the reason, she was speechless. Should she be honored that Li Huairou paid so much attention to her? After all, this was treatment that even Ji Yingze had never received.
“Do you and Cao Rui really mean that? I think he likes you, right?” Li Huairou approached Jiang Xinyue with the expression of “if you tell me, I promise not to tell others”.
Jiang Xinyue felt a little helpless. Actually, she didn’t know what was going on between herself and Cao Rui. At work, they had a tacit understanding. She could always be the first to understand his thoughts, and she was also the first to perceive his meaning.
There was affection, but Jiang Xinyue didn’t know whether it was because of her own assumptions or real emotion caused by facing each other day and night during the filming.
She could estimate that Cao Rui himself couldn’t tell the difference, so after the filming was over, the two were not close.
But, judging from today’s premiere, Cao Rui didn’t seem to mean it that way.
Was it because she was overthinking it?
Jiang Xinyue laughed at herself. Just as she was about to speak, she saw Cao Rui walking over. Li Huairou’s eyes lit up, and she stood up knowingly. “I’ll go out first. You two can take your time.”
Then she greeted Cao Rui, walked out, and gently closed the door.
Then she stuck her ear on the door, trying to clearly hear the movement inside.
Inside, Cao Rui lowered his head and remained silent for a long time.
Seeing him like this, Jiang Xinyue felt a little nervous for some reason.
Cao Rui hesitated for a long time, then raised his head. “Xinyue, I…”
Jiang Xinyue looked forward to it faintly, looking at Cao Rui with encouragement that even she didn’t notice. “Huh?”
Cao Rui hesitated again and again, as if he had finally made a decision. “Xinyue, the script outline for the second play has been completed. Do you want to have a look? If you want, we can cooperate again.”
Jiang Xinyue laughed, not bothering with the faint disappointment in her heart. “Alright!”
After Cao Rui finished speaking, he was a little annoyed. Obviously, what he’d wanted to say was not that. But, without knowing why, he just couldn’t say it.
Seeing him standing there motionlessly, Jiang Xinyue asked, “Where’s the script outline?”
“Oh, I—I didn’t bring it, so I’ll send it back to you.” One wrong step after another wrong step; Cao Rui was a little frustrated.
Jiang Xinyue suddenly smiled. After getting along with him over this period of time, she also understood Cao Rui’s character. Contrary to his talent, he himself was actually not good at speaking, even a little dull. In this life, she probably wouldn’t be able to hear what she wanted to hear. Jiang Xinyue even felt that if she really wanted to further confirm the relationship, she might have to speak first.
It was just that she hadn’t decided yet whether the man in front of her was worth entrusting herself to for life. It might be a bit ridiculous to say that she entered every relationship to get married, but the results had been so unsatisfactory. Thus, she needed to be cautious.
“Is there a digital file? Show me first!” Jiang Xinyue changed the topic to the new movie.
Li Huairou listened from outside the door for a long time, and she was very disappointed. With this speed, she was afraid that the two of them wouldn’t have achieved a positive result even after Ji Yingze’s son was already born!
Speaking of Ji Yingze, the last time he went to France to collect pictures, he’d met a passionate French girl. She was impressed by his talent, fell in love at first sight, and then began to violently pursue him. And, all the way back to the country from France, she was still vigorously pursuing him.
The French girl, whose name was Chloe, was extremely patient. Even though Ji Yingze rejected her many times, she still persisted in pursuing him. She even went to a language school to learn Chinese in order to make the relationship between them closer.
She even got to know Madam Ji by mistake, and the relationship between the two of them was still good. So it was even worse for Ji Yingze—being pinched by two women at the same time, suffering unspeakably. And there was no way to avoid it, so he pulled Li Huairou away to pour the bitterness in his heart out every now and then.
However, in Li Huairou’s opinion, Ji Yingze probably also liked Chloe deep down. Otherwise, he would have left long ago. It was just that he hadn’t realized it himself.
Whether it was Ji Yingze and Chloe or Cao Rui and Jiang Xinyue, Li Huairou had no intention of playing matchmaker to pierce the paper window for them. Life was boring and tedious—she needed the buzz.
[A Chinese idiom, meaning “to let out the secret”. In times when glass was not yet invented, paper was pasted over windows. When poking holes in the paper, people could see what was happening inside the house. This phrase figuratively means to expose something and make it public]
Li Huairou shook her head and walked away. Damn, what should I eat for supper? How distressing. How about going out? She should get crayfish. In the scorching summer, crayfish and beer was a perfect match!
When Liang Tian saw that the trending search that the company had bought for his new movie had been quickly suppressed by the trending search of Li Huairou eating crayfish, he didn’t know what to say.
He felt that Li Huairou was his nemesis. No matter what he did, she was beating him to death. He’d hired an acting teacher to teach him personally. In this movie, his acting skills had finally improved, and he no longer just pretended to be cool and handsome. So he’d struck while the iron was hot and bought a hot search.
As a result, by day, he was overwhelmed by Jiang Xinyue’s Youth, and, by night, he was overwhelmed by Li Huairou’s hot search of crayfish-eating.
Upon clicking on the trending searches, a single gust of praise blew out: “Who’s my little ducky, so cute when eating, so down to earth?” There was even a discussion about whether crayfish was more delicious with garlic or made spicy. Based on clues, some netizens found out the specific location of the roadside stall where Li Huairou was eating crayfish, and they ran over to check.
Liang Tian reluctantly quit Weibo, took out his cellphone, and called Sister Zhang. “Hey, sister, where are you? Can we meet tonight?”
After hanging up the phone, Liang Tian’s smile disappeared. He threw his cellphone on the sofa, walked to the French window, and looked at the busy traffic outside with a solemn expression.
Sister Zhang had become more and more indifferent to him recently. She’d even asked him to fall in love last time. Yes, he liked those young and fresh girls, but, besides bringing him short-term happiness, what else could those girls bring him? Resources? Wealth? Wasn’t it totally impossible?!
Liang Tian thought that he’d eventually find a young girl, marry, have children, and live a normal life. But that was after he reached the pinnacle of his career and became famous, not now.
Sister Zhang was tired of him, so she wanted to kick him away. But it wasn’t that simple, unless he found someone who was better than Sister Zhang, or as good as Sister Zhang in raising him. He had limited contacts, and even if he had them, they were Sister Zhang’s contacts, not his.
Liang Tian decided to find a time to have a good chat with Sister Zhang and ask her to help.
The time would come soon.
Under Liang Tian’s repeated invitations, Sister Zhang came to Liang Tian’s birthday.
Liang Tian directly expressed his thoughts to Sister Zhang.
“You said that you want to marry me?” Sister Zhang felt a little funny.
“Yes!” Liang Tian said seriously. “But this is my original idea. I know, Sister Zhang, that you may not like me anymore, and that you’re even bored with me. I promise to get together with you. It’s just, Sister Zhang, I don’t want to find a girl who has nothing. I hope Sister Zhang can help me.”
Sister Zhang took a deep breath. Very good, Liang Tian had successfully refreshed her cognition.
“Fine, no problem.” Sister Zhang smiled.
Liang Tian also laughed. It was a joy to talk to smart people.
A few days later, Sister Zhang took Liang Tian to a private reception, and they met a woman in the same grade as Sister Zhang, who was surnamed Wang.
Liang Tian took the woman’s hand familiarly, calling her and coaxing the woman to smile. Liang Tian and Sister Wang left first, before the reception was over.
The next day, Liang Tian moved out of the house that Sister Zhang had given him.
Later, when they met again on other occasions, the two of them did not talk, instead nodding and greeting each other from a distance.
After Li Huairou found out, she no longer knew what to say. For some people, their lowest point really didn’t exist.
“Huairou, are you home? Open the door,” Ji Yingze suddenly called.
Li Huairou opened the door, and Ji Yingze dejectedly walked in. He sat on the sofa without saying a word. Li Huairou didn’t ask him anything. She took a bottle of fruit beer from the refrigerator, opened it, and handed it to him.
Ji Yingze took it and gulped it down.
Li Huairou took out another bottle and was about to open it.
Ji Yingze stood up suddenly and left without saying a word.
Li Huairou blinked her eyes. Was he just thirsty?
Soon, Li Huairou knew what was causing Ji Yingze’s abnormality. Chloe was pregnant!
Ji Rushan and Wen Wanlan called Li Huairou home to discuss marriage.
Ji Yingze stared at Chloe’s stomach in awe. Obviously, he was not so conflicted about the marriage. Ji Rushan and Wen Wanlan felt relieved and began to discuss the matter of marriage.
Cholel was baffled at first, but when she finally understood what they were talking about, she shook her head again and again, speaking in less-than-fluent Chinese: “No, no, no, not to get married.”
Ji Yingze widened his eyes and replied in French. “Not getting married? Why? You are pregnant!”
“Being pregnant doesn’t mean getting married. I don’t want to get married!” Chloe replied.
“You don’t want to marry me? So what are you doing?” Ji Yingze expressed that he didn’t understand.
“I just want to have a romantic relationship with you. I don’t want to get married.” Chloe said seriously.
Ji Yingze was speechless.
Ji Rushan and Wen Wanlan blinked and blinked again. They didn’t know French, so they had no idea what the two of them were talking about. So they looked at Li Huairou.
Li Huairou also didn’t know French, but she’d turned on a translation software on her cellphone and understood what the two of them were talking about.
“Chole said that she just wants to fall in love with my brother, not get married.”
