Chapter 91: Chen Xiuqi Returns (2)
Everyone likes people who worked hard, especially when they had the talent. People would like them even more. Director Zhou had been a director for many years so he treasures talented people, like Su Yaya.
Su Yaya was focused on learning from other people’s photoshoots that she didn’t know about Director Zhou Tongguang’s change of thoughts. She waited for everyone to finish their photoshoots then went to eat with them.
While eating, Chen Yan who was the female lead and the person treating them out, sat in the center. To her left, was Zhou Tongguang and to the right, was Yu Hui. Then, it was the male lead, Xu Chaoran. Then, it was Su Yaya and then the second male lead, Zhang Yue, co-director, and then the photographer. There were ten of them in the table.
While eating, Chen Yan was great at making the atmosphere more lively. The entire table laughed and chuckled every now and then. They drank quite a bit of alcohol. Su Yaya sat by the side, well-behaved. She would drink a few glasses when it was her turn. She didn’t dare steal Chen Yan’s spotlight but wasn’t too quiet either. It was just right for her. Xu Chaoran sat by her side and seeing that she was from the same company as him, he reminded her not to drink too much. When she didn’t have to drink, don’t drink.
Chen Yan had heard this and pointed at him, saying, “My male lead actually cares about someone else other than me.”
Xu Chaoran said calmly, “Well, she’s my junior sister!”
“Nice, nice!” Yu Hui clapped his hands and everyone laughed along.
After they finished, it was almost two hours later. The others had their own plans but Su Yaya was free, so she had Xiao Yu drive her home.
When she returned home, Su Yaya went to nap first then continued to look through the play script after she woke up. Without realizing, another day had passed. At night, Su Yaya laid on bed after rinsing and recalled how she hadn’t contacted Chen Xiuqi the entire day. She didn’t know what he was busy with.
She opened her WeChat to see the message still there. Chen Xiuqi hadn’t replied. This wasn’t good. She decided to call Chen Xiuqi and ask. That way, he could tell how much she cared for him!
She clicked on Chen Xiuqi’s number and called him. Yet, it said that he was busy and the call ended after a few rings.
Su Yaya pursed her lips. She couldn’t get ahold of him so she could only send him another text. She sent him a cute “I miss you” picture and then turned her phone off. She went to have her beauty sleep.
The next morning, Su Yaya and Zhou Peiyun went to the Fruit TV Station to find Producer Sun Lei to talk about the specifics of 《Food and Guests》. Everything went by successfully and Su Yaya just needed to cook three specialty dishes of hers for the program and answer some of the questions posed by the host. Of course, the host would go through the questions with her beforehand so she could think about how to answer the question in the program. This episode would be broadcasted next Wednesday and the treatment was pretty good. Su Yaya was very satisfied.
Zhou Peiyun and Sun Lei both flattered each other and they were looking forward to next week’s collaboration. They successfully signed the contract then Zhou Peiyun brought Su Yaya along to say goodbye to Sun Lei. Then they left the Fruit TV Station.
On the way back, in the car, Zhou Peiyun reminded Su Yaya, “You will be going to the set tomorrow to film scenes. You have to be smart and don’t let others bully you. Xiao Yu will follow you. Call me if you have any problems.”
Su Yaya asked, “Sister Zhou isn’t following me over?”
Zhou Peiyun said, “There’s an urgent matter and I need to handle some things. After I’m done, I’ll go over and find you. I will ask the set for the day off for Wednesday in advance so you just need to focus on filming your scenes.”
Su Yaya said, “I know.”
When the car drove back to the villa, Su Yaya said goodbye to Zhou Peiyun. She got out of the car and walked to the door, punching in the password and walking in. She saw a man’s leather shoes by the door and a faint smell of smoke in the air.
Was Chen Xiuqi back?
Su Yaya raised her head and called towards the room, “Hubby, you’re back!”
There was a slight movement behind the curtains of the balcony. Su Yaya took off her high heels and ran barefoot over to the balcony without even changing into her slippers.
She pulled the ocean blue curtains over to see Chen Xiuqi sitting on a chair smoking, just as expected. Su Yaya walked over and hugged him. She softly and sweetly said, “Hubby, when did you come back?”
Chen Xiuqi put out the cigarette and placed it in the ashtray. He reached over and pulled Su Yaya to sit on his thigh. He held her waist and rubbed his chin against her neck. “Have you missed me these few days?”
Su Yaya wrapped her hands around his throat and looked at her reflection through his eyes. She pursed her pouting lips and acted cute, saying, “Of course I do. I miss you a lot. I even sent you texts but you didn’t respond.”
Chen Xiuqi looked at her and pursed his lips. He said gently, “I have been busy these past few days so I didn’t see the texts.”
“Oh, I guessed that would’ve been the case.” Su Yaya wasn’t upset by Chen Xiuqi not responding to her messages. Instead, she asked in concern, “Are you done with your work?”
Chen Xiuqi continued to hold her and hummed in agreement. He pecked her lips and asked, “Why don’t you ask what I have been working on?”
