Chapter 98: It Hurts…(1)
That day was the day Su Yaya’s first joined the crew and began filming, and she only had one scene then with the male lead, Xu Chaoran. Currently, her role as the supporting female lead is only a fair consort. In order to obtain the favor of the emperor that was played by Xu Chaoran, she bribed all of the eunuchs by his side. After learning of the emperor’s tracks, she secretly ran to the lotus pond, took off her shoes and socks, and sat down on the stones beside it, playing with the water.
She had a beautiful and delicate pair of feet that looked pure white like jade, especially when submerged under the dazzling water. After the emperor walked by and saw the scene, he was captivated by her beautiful feet in an instant. They were absolutely beautiful to him. As if he was being led by the devil, he felt the need to touch her feet.
Based on the plot written down in the script, the emperor will successfully touch the feet of the consort and fall in love with them instantly. Then, he will carry this consort away with him back to the Ganyuan Palace. After a passionate night together, he will name her as his favored woman.
However, an accident happened during the shooting. Dressed in the heavy historical costume, Su Yaya took off her shoes and sat on the stone by the lotus pond and played with the water. The sun shone down through the gaps of the leaves on top of Su Yaya’s body and the surface of the water like a fine layer of gold, creating a dazzlingly beautiful scene.
Xu Chaoran who was dressed in the emperor’s costume appeared at this moment, and he saw Su Yaya’s feet. Fair and beautiful, they attracted his gaze in an instant. He couldn’t help but come towards her and reached out his hand, hoping to touch her feet while he spoke his lines, “My dear, how beautiful…”
And this was where the accident happened. According to the script, Su Yaya should try to evade his touch bashfully. But who knew that she would accidentally slip while attempting to do so, and landed her entire person inside of the pond.
With a splash, Su Yaya fell in.
Originally, Su Yaya could swim. Even though she wasn’t good at it, she still wouldn’t drown. However, she was wearing the historical costumes today which consisted of layers upon layers of fabric. Every piece of her clothing was wide, and they wrapped around her hands and feet after they had gotten wet, stopping her from freeing herself. It was ridiculously heavy as if something was pulling her down. Seeing that she was going to be pulled underwater, she accidentally choked on a few mouthfuls of water during her panic.
Xu Chaoran was the closest to Su Yaya when it happened. He froze for a moment when he saw Su Yaya fall into the lotus pond but he quickly came back to his senses. This was not what it said in the script. Su Yaya had really fallen into the water. Then, without even thinking, he quickly took off his loose robes and jumped in to save Su Yaya.
After Xu Chaoran jumped in, the other crew members had also realized that an accident had happened. They quickly ran over to help them.
Xu Chaoran jumped into the water and quickly swam his way to Su Yaya. He grabbed onto her from behind and took her to the shore. Holding her wet body, he brought her up.
“Brother Chao, Brother Chao, are you okay?” One of the crew members ran over and asked him anxiously.
Xu Chaoran responded, “I’m fine.” Then, he looked down at Su Yaya in his arms. When he saw how pale her face was, he asked in worry, “How do you feel?”
“I…I’m okay.” Su Yaya forced down the discomfort in her body and answered.
“You don’t look so good. I think it’s better for you to see a doctor,” Xu Chaoran suggested.
“I don’t think that’s necessary…”
“Listen to me. If you get sick, then you’ll also delay the filming for the rest of the crew,” Xu Chaoran said to her with a serious face that accepted no refusals.
Su Yaya, “…”
Yu Hui had also rushed over. He said, “I think Chaoran is right. It’ll be for the best to have a check.”
He knew very well that Su Yaya was Chen Xiuqi’s woman. If anything were to happen to her in the crew, then things would still be fine if Chen Xiuqi didn’t care. If he got angry because of this, then the entire crew would be in deep trouble. And, according to the rumors, Chen Xiuqi seemed very concerned about Su Yaya. It’s hard to guarantee anything, and he didn’t dare to take the gamble. Whether she was fine or not, she should still be sent to the hospital for a check-up just in case.
