Adopting and Raising the Male Lead and the Villain - Chapter 238
Yin Qiqi couldn’t help but scream, then turned to rush towards Huo Chengming.
Although it was done in an instant, Yin Qiqi thought about it clearly in her mind. Wen Yongchen made it clear that he wanted to be with Zhong Yuhuan, and she couldn’t offend Zhong Yuhuan. Gu Yuling wanted to be in a CP with Li Jinyuan. Therefore, wouldn’t Huo Chengming be the best choice?
Her movements were fast.
But Huo Chengming’s were even faster.
With one stride of Huo Chengming’s long legs, he went to Zhong Yuhuan’s side.
Yin Qiqi lunged at the air, but Ling Lan supported her from the side, or else Yin Qiqi would have face-planted on the ground.
Yin Qiqi awkwardly shot Ling Lan a smile, but Ling Lan wasn’t looking at her. Ling Lan was looking in Zhong Yuhuan’s direction. Yin Qiqi couldn’t help but follow her and saw—
Huo Chengming embracing Zhong Yuhuan.
Are siblings this intimate? Yin Qiqi thought sourly in her heart.
But from the previous episodes, she already knew. They were this intimate.
“Don’t you think it’s very weird?” Ling Lan said.
“What?” Yin Qiqi momentarily did not react.
But Ling Lan didn’t have the intention of repeating, and closed her mouth. Turning away, she immediately started talking quietly to Ge Mei and Gu Yuling. Yin Qiqi came back to her senses and was suddenly shocked. She just realized that Ling Lan, who had almost no sense of presence, had already begun to rise up in the show.
On this end, Zhong Yuhuan was a bit stunned.
This stunned her more than the gunshots.
Huo Chengming didn’t care how stunned she was. Using one arm to encircle her even harder and the other wrapped around her head, he tightly covered her ears.
This action was a bit too obvious.
Wen Yongchen couldn’t help but look back, feeling a bit regretful. But it was only a bit.
He had been in the circle for a long time and even his bones were engraved with the rules of the entertainment industry. He and Zhong Yuhuan could be ambiguous, and their interactions in the show can be sweet. However, there was nothing concrete and everything was good. If he really got close to Zhong Yuhuan without any scruples under the camera, his fans would definitely be unhappy, even though they said he was getting older and should date.
Or else, he would’ve long gone over to comfort Zhong Yuhuan.
Thankfully it’s only the older brother, Wen Yongchen thought as he stared at Huo Chengming’s back.
If he wasn’t the older brother, it would really be troublesome.
Thinking this, Wen Yongchen couldn’t help but look in Li Jinyuan’s direction.
Li Jinyuan was talking with the program group. When they failed to contact the embassy, Li Jinyuan decisively took the phone and sought foreign aid on behalf of the program group.
Wen Yongchen felt a bit regretful again.
In China, his acting skills and reputation were both pretty good. But those were not useful here. His language skills could only be enough for basic conversations… If this scene was recorded and left in the show, Li Jinyuan will probably gain a substantial amount of fans…
Right at that time, Li Jinyuan took the phone and suddenly raised his head.
Who was he looking at?
He was looking at Zhong Yuhuan.
A weird feeling emerged in Wen Yongchen’s heart.
Li Jinyuan only took a glance before looking away.
I was thinking too much right? There’s nothing weird, Wen Yongchen thought.
Soon, there was another sound of glass breaking, and a bullet came in.
An anxious atmosphere permeated the church again. Everyone vigorously reacted in that instant. Gu Yuling, Ge Mei, and Yin Qiqi quickly darted under the church’s pews and the program staff also dispersed, hurriedly looking for shelter themselves. Wen Yongchen also wanted to hide under the pews, but he stopped, instead turning to make his way to Zhong Yuhuan’s side.
Only to see Huo Chengming quickly taking off his jacket to cover Zhong Yuhuan.
Li Jinyuan squeezed the phone as he swiftly walked to them. Huo Chengming pushed Zhong Yuhuan into his arms, then took Li Jinyuan’s phone, saying, “I’ll call.”
Zhong Yuhuan had never experienced something like this in both of her lifetimes. She was still calm as before, but with Huo Chengming’s jacket draped over her and darkness all in front of her, Zhong Yuhuan’s heart reflexively clenched. A bit of panic struck her and she couldn’t help but shout, “Huo Chengming…”
Li Jinyuan slightly lowered his gaze as a strange look flashed across his eyes. He held Zhong Yuhuan’s hands and whispered, “Don’t worry, Huanhuan.”
Li Jinyuan turned and saw that although the cameraman was shaking, he still firmly pointed the camera in their direction. Li Jinyuan only then decided to amplify what he was about to say to Zhong Yuhuan for others to hear as well. “These people want political rights and won’t go into religious disputes. The bullet just now must’ve been an accident. It should be safe inside the church right now.”
Zhong Yuhuan slowly blinked.
She didn’t know who was holding her hand, but Li Jinyuan’s voice was useful, restoring her slightly flustered mood to normal.
But others weren’t the same.
They saw Li Jinyuan call, then Huo Chengming, but it seemed like everything was useless.
Even if Li Jinyuan was saying comforting words just now, this still left them nervous.
Only Wen Yongchen’s mood was different.
The strange feeling in his heart grew stronger as he looked at this scene.
