Chapter 109: Call Me By My Name(1)
Qiao Moyu slowly lifted the piece of paper that was underneath Xing Yichen’s foot. Her lips slightly moved as she greeted Ye Peicheng, “Film Emperor.”
Ye Peicheng heard the familiar but polite form of address, he felt like it was a little harsh to his ears.
Ye Peicheng withdrew his gaze and turned around. He began walking out.
Qiao Moyu didn’t know if he had misunderstood her so she quickly ran after him. After catching up with him, she said, “Film Emperor, it’s not what you think!”
He turned around and deeply gazed at her. Ye Peicheng smiled a smile yet not a smile, “Do you know what I’m thinking?”
Qiao Moyu was panting when she had caught up with him. Although she didn’t feel like she was obligated to explain the situation to him, she also understands that she is now an actress. There will be a big impact on her career as an actress if she has a sex scandal or if there’s negative news about her.
Right now, she is working on《The Light Before Dawn》with Ye Peicheng. If her reputation is damaged, it will affect the drama that they are working on together. If the drama is affected, then he will also be affected.
She said, “I’m sorry. That is a personal grudge between us. We don’t have an illicit affair or anything. In the future, I will make sure that nothing like this will ever happen again. I will also make sure that it won’t affect the crewmembers and the filming progress.”
Unknowingly, Qiao Moyu’s attitude was very good. But Ye Peicheng felt that his heart was gloomy for no reason at all.
As a result, the two of them stood there at a deadlock until Qiao Moyu’s phone rang. The caller id displayed that it was sister-in-law Yu who is calling her.
Qiao Moyu looked around saw that Xing Yichen had already left. Then, she glanced at Ye Peicheng and thought that since he had already seen Luo Luo, there was no point in trying to hide it from him. She slid her finger across the phone screen to pick up the call and answered, “Sister Yu”.
Unexpectedly, she heard Luo Luo’s tender and milky voice call out, “Mother!”
Qiao Moyu’s mouth immediately curved into a smile and soft light overfilled her eyes. She asked, “Baobei, why aren’t you asleep? It’s already very late.”
At this moment, the little guy on the other end of the phone showed an expression like he was caught in the act. His big eyes looked around and he covered his small mouth. Luo Luo began to snore, pretending that he was already asleep.
Qiao Moyu guessed that he was pretending to be asleep. She couldn’t help but smile, “Has Baobei already fallen asleep? Then who was it that had called me earlier? Could it be that there is another Baobei at home?”
Luo Luo continued to cover his small mouth with his hands. He looked at the clock that was hanging on the wall and recalled the instructions that Qiao Moyu had given him before she left. She had told him that when the short needle of the clock points to at the little bear, he will have to go to sleep.
Right now, the short needle had long passed where the little bear is. Because he missed his mother, he couldn’t fall asleep. So, he asked auntie to call his mother. However, he didn’t realize that by calling his mother, he would be exposing the fact that he hasn’t fallen asleep.
Will mother say that he isn’t an obedient Baobei?
When Qiao Moyu heard the snoring sound from the phone, she can’t help but laugh. She asked, “Is it because Baobei misses his mother?”
Luo Luo tightened his grip on the phone. He wanted to talk but he firmly restrained himself from talking.
“Oh, my family’s Baobei doesn’t miss his mother. But the other Baobei misses his mother because he had called his mother, misses his mother!” Qiao Moyu deliberately teased him, “I have heard the other Baobei’s voice. That Baobei’s voice is very cute!”
Luo Luo blinked his eyes, he felt very jealous. He couldn’t help but say, “It’s Luo Luo who missed his mother. There is no other Baobei!”
Qiao Moyu joyfully laughed, “There really isn’t another Baobei? Then who was the person that had answered the phone before?”
“It was Luo Luo!” Luo Luo felt so anxious that he was about to cry, “Mother only has one Baobei and that Baobei is Luo Luo!”
“My family’s Luo Luo is the cutest. I was wondering how could there be another Baobei who is just as cute as Luo Luo?” Qiao Moyu praised Luo Luo without any hesitation, “So it was Luo Luo who had answered the phone. I was just thinking, how could there be another Baobei cuter than my Luo Luo?”
The little guy was now shy, but he was unwilling to hang up.
His face turned red, but he doesn’t say anything.
Qiao Moyu knew what he was thinking so she said, “Mother misses Luo Luo too. Mother will be able to return home in two days.”
Luo Luo became happy when he heard that. He saw the moon outside the window so he said, “Mother, Luo Luo can see the moon.”
