My Groom Ran Away - Chapter 12.1
In the WeChat group, Ye Yanchu was passionately sharing today’s gossip with Gu Linlang.
Ye Yanchu: Hahaha, Sorry, but I never listen to reason! Cheng Yuelin is great. Linlang, you did not see, but Lin Jingfei’s face turned completely white!
Gu Linlang: Lin Jingfei is a green tea bitch who met a straight man. There’s no way she can reason her way out of it. But why is Cheng Yuelin looking for trouble with Lin Jingfei? I feel like there’s a problem.
Ye Yanchu: Probably cause she’s annoying. It was her fault for talking about people behind their back and letting them hear it. Back then, Cheng Yuelin got annoyed because Yinyin’s temper was too soft. Would he really let Lin Jingfei reason with him?
Gu Linlang: That’s right, Lin Jingfei has a golden tongue in front of Qin Jue, but this time she really kicked a steel plate. According to some reliable information, Director Liang is getting ready to recast the role.
Ruan Zhiyin had just finished showering when she saw this piece of news from Gu Linlang.
The fashion and entertainment circles had always been inextricably linked and Gu Linlang naturally had her own connections. If she was able to say this, then it was definitely not just empty words.
Even though they were rejoicing in other people’s misfortune, Ruan Zhiyin still felt that this personality of Cheng Yuelin was not that nasty.
Ye Yanchu: She deserves it! She relied on her background to steal so many people’s roles. This is karma! It’s a pity I crashed Yinyin’s car on my way back. Otherwise, I could have been happier.
When she saw the dejected sticker that Ye Yanchu had sent, Ruan Zhiyin could not help but laugh.
Ye Yanchu had just gotten her license, but she did not dare to drive. Ruan Zhiyin could not stand it and had ordered Ye Yanchu to drive on their way back.
She drove very ‘carefully and steadily’. She basically moved as fast as the electric scooters. However, unfortunately, they were rear-ended by the car tailgating them.
In the end, the other party was at fault and would pay the compensation. The car was towed away for repairs.
Ruan Zhiyin typed: It’s time for service anyway, and they were completely at fault. It had nothing to do with you. When you have time, you should practice driving. Then you would not have to squeeze onto the subway every day.
After she sent the message, a drop of water from a strand of damp hair landed on the screen. Ruan Zhiyin then put down the phone and prepared to dry her hair.
But just as she stood up, she stopped.
She had suddenly remembered that she had forgotten to buy a hairdryer.
When she moved that day, her hairdryer was at the bottom of the boxes and it was accidentally broken. Cheng Yuelin saw it and had said that his room also had a hairdryer and she could use it for now. So Ruan Zhiyin was not in a rush to buy a new one.
However, Lin Jingfei and then Cheng Yuelin appeared one after another, cutting off her shopping spree, so she had completely forgotten about this matter.
Ruan Zhiyin was prone to headaches. If she did not blow dry her hair after washing it, the next day her head will hurt.
She sighed, resigned to her fate as she walked towards Cheng Yuelin’s room.
The master bedroom was next door. Just as Ruan Zhiyin was going to knock, she found the door was wide open and was never closed.
She carefully called out, “Cheng Yuelin, are you here?”
There was no response.
Her hair was still dripping. It was not very comfortable.
Ruan Zhiyin knocked on the open door a few times. She hesitated, but she still walked forward a few steps.
However, the bedroom was empty and not a shadow was found.
Maybe he had gone out again?
Fair enough, he had just returned from his business trip. Going back to the company to handle a few matters would be normal.
She breathed a sigh of relief and did not think about it anymore. She walked into the bathroom to grab the hairdryer.
But just as she turned around, the bathroom door slammed open.
The person inside took a big stride out. Ruan Zhiyin was not able to stop in time and walked into a wide, firm chest.
She rubbed her nose and raised her eyes to look. Ruan Zhiyin froze in place.
The man’s short hair had only been wiped half dry and behind him, hazy steam flowed out. His upper body was completely bare. His torso was lean but sturdy and his abs were sexy and tight.
Crystalline water droplets slowly flowed across his handsome profile. His thin lips were tightly pursed and as they flowed down past his attractive mermaid lines, his waist was loosely encircled with a bath towel.
The image in front of her was too exciting and Ruan Zhiyin’s brain crashed. Her slender and white wrist still held onto the strong arm in front of her.
Until Cheng Yuelin’s deliberately low voice entered her ears. “Ruan Zhiyin, what are you doing?”
Ruan Zhiyin abruptly returned to her senses, and the embarrassment was enormous. She subconsciously curled her fingers and swallowed her saliva.
At this moment, whoever backed down first would be the one who would be embarrassed.
So she forcefully suppressed her emotions and then retrieved her gaze that was staring at his chest. She met the man’s gaze calmly, as though nothing had happened, and calmly said, “Your figure… isn’t bad.”
Cheng Yuelin: “…”
Half an hour later, the two people sat face to face in the living room.
The air was stale and silent.
There was an indescribable air of embarrassment.
Ruan Zhiyin looked at the man’s poor complexion and paused before she spoke. “Why don’t you speak first?”
“Hm, what can I say?” Cheng Yuelin sloppily raised a brow and crossed his arms as he looked at her. “This lord’s innocence has been completely seen by you.”
Ruan Zhiyin heard the gritted accusation from his words and was silent for a few seconds. But she could not help defending herself. “Strictly speaking, I did not see everything.”
After all, there was still a bath towel.
“What, from these words, saying you did not see everything, does that mean you wanted to see more?” The man smiled meaningfully and leaned back casually. “Blame my poor eyesight, I never realized that you… to me…”
“Harbored bad intentions.”
Ruan Zhiyin was speechless. She took a deep breath and denied it. “I do not.”
Cheng Yuelin raised his chin slightly and chuckled as he continued to ask, “No? Then why would you suddenly break into my room?”
“I only wanted to borrow the hairdryer.” Ruan Zhiyin suddenly thought of something else and furrowed her brow as she asked back. “Why didn’t you close the door when you were showering?”
If he did not shower without closing the door, then the incident that happened just now would not have occurred.
