Chapter 42: Meeting Face to Face (9)
Underneath the sunshine, her hand was delicate and white with cleanly trimmed nails. Her pair of hands seemed suitable for playing the piano, and yet they contained such surprising power.
Meanwhile, Ye Peicheng’s lips raised to an almost imperceptible smile as he saw Qiao Moyu’s enthusiastic expression. He thought: ‘If she wasn’t a girl, I’m afraid she would’ve turned that block into rubble by now.’
However, everyone was focused only on Qiao Moyu. No one noticed Ye Peicheng’s sudden breath-takingly beautiful smile.
A few minutes later, the topic took flight throughout social media like a dandelion caught up in a spring breeze. Everyone was raving over the news.
[The Beauty in Plain White broke three boards with her bare hands]
[In the entertainment circle with many weak willow beauties, this heroine among women causes a surprise]
[Is the honorable sister Moyu actually a heroine who crossed over from ancient times?]
[I want to be ravaged by Sister Moyu. She’s beautiful and knows how to fight. Please marry me!]
News like this has blown up all over the internet. And Qiao Moyu, who was the main topic, has no idea that she was on the hot search all over again.
The number one search topic was: ‘Did Film Emperor Ye kiss his martial sister?’
Second place: ‘Film Emperor and Qiao Moyu’
Third place: ‘Qiao Moyu splits the board with her bare hands’
Fourth place: Xing Wanshuang’s Sword Dance
Fifth place: ‘Qiao Ruohuan and Xing Yichen’
And the last one: ‘Sheng Shi drama’s popularity surpasses Xing Hai.’
The fan meeting ended a success. Just when Qiao Moyu was about to leave, she saw Ye Peicheng coming out of the dressing room.
He had changed into a casual outfit, wearing sunglasses and a hat. There was no assistant following him. Since he had a car key in hand, he must be planning to drive home alone.
Qiao Moyu greeted him with a smile and was about to turn around and leave. However, she suddenly saw the actor bend over to pick up something from the ground.
Ye Peicheng unfurled the paper bill in his found and found it to be 150 yuan. He looked up and asked Qiao Moyu, “Did you drop this?”
Qiao Moyu shook her head. Ha ha, she knew where this money came from, but she didn’t tell him.
Since they both took time to remove their makeup and change into normal clothing, they were late on leaving the studio compared to everyone else. The director, Xing Yichen and the rest had already left, so the money on the ground didn’t have an owner to claim it.
Ye Peicheng looked at the bill in his hand and asked Qiao Moyu: “Is your driver not here?”
Qiao Moyu nodded: “The assistant’s car happened to be under maintenance today, so I came by taxi this morning.”
Ye Peicheng looked forward: “Let’s go.”
‘Does he intend to give me a ride?’ Qiao Moyu thought. It seems that Film Emperor Ye is actually quite approachable.
They walked together towards the underground parking, about two meters apart from each other. They didn’t converse with one another, as if they were simply passerbys.
When the elevator finally reached the bottom floor, Ye Peicheng suddenly paused, then went towards the pickup window of a red ice cream shop. He lowered the eaves of his hat and naturally asked Qiao Moyu behind him, “What flavor do you want?”
“Tiramisu,” Qiao Moyu replied without thinking.
“One vanilla, one tiramisu.” Ye Peicheng handed over the money he had picked up earlier. This ice cream was known as one of the most popular food items, costing 75 yuan per piece.
The server was quite busy, so she didn’t recognize the actor. By the time she finished prepping the orders, she handed the two ice cream cones over to him.
Ye Peicheng took the ice cream and passed the tiramisu flavor to Qiao Moyu.
Since he gave her a treat, Qiao Moyu felt somewhat flattered. Although the money was found because of her koi fish attribute, she still sweetly told him, “Thank you, Film Emperor Ye.”
“It’s alright.” He took a bite of the ice cream and felt the cold, sweet dessert melt at the tip of his tongue. His eyes locked onto her as he said: “I didn’t spend my money anyways.”
