“She said her name is Liang Xinran.
Shes a pretty girl and looks a little familiar,” the assistant said with a smile.
Hearing the assistants words, Gu Jingyuan changed his attitude.
The assistant smiled and went out to inform them.
Liang Xinran walked in, looked around his overly empty office, and ran towards him.
She held the flowers up to him.
“A fan gave them to me.
I thought they looked good.
Ill pass them along.”
“Thank you.” Gu Jingyuan placed the flowers on his table and remembered that he had never given her anything, not even flowers.
He felt momentarily ashamed looking her smiling face.
“I just heard from your assistant that youre busy.
In that case, Ill get going and come back when youre not.”
“Its certainly a bit of a rush.
I need to rush through a report, but could you … just wait here until Ive finished, and then have dinner tonight”
“Sure! I need to read a script anyway!”
Liang Xinran was someone who would be very bright if given a little sunlight.
She immediately smiled extremely happily.
Gu Jingyuan reached out and patted her face gently.
Liang Xinrans smile overflowed, and her eyes shone brightly.
She reached out and cupped his hand in hers.
It was warm and dry.
It was what she had imagined it would be, yet it was different from what she had imagined.
She blinked and smiled.
“I was wondering what your palm would feel like.
Now I know.”
Gu Jingyuan allowed her to hold his hand.
The girls hand was soft and delicate.
It was not that he had never held Shi Jins hand before, but he had never thought about it carefully or felt it.
So she could be this happy without him doing anything.
He tightened his grip and clasped Liang Xinrans fingers.
His slightly warm and dry fingers squeezed between Liang Xinrans fingers.
There was a hint of shyness in Liang Xinrans smile.
She bit her lip lightly and immediately found it difficult to breathe.
Her mind was filled with joy and disbelief that he had actually taken the initiative to respond.
Her fingers rubbed together, and her heart felt like it was being squeezed by them, tangled and sweet.
There was a knock on the door.
Gu Jingyuan retracted his hand and coughed lightly.
“Ill go open the door.”
He went and opened the door.
His assistant had delivered a new report.
After receiving it, Gu Jingyuan replied, “You can read the script here.
Ill read the report over there.
Theres a pantry beside it.
You can get whatever you want to drink.”
“Okay, go ahead.” Liang Xinrans face was filled with happiness.
Gu Jingyuan sat back in his chair and read the report.
At first, he was still a little anxious and could not help but think of the soft touch on his fingertips.
It took a moment to gather his thoughts and read the report carefully.
Liang Xinran glanced at him from time to time and saw that he was serious.
Only then did she look at the script seriously.
After Gu Jingyuan finished reading a section, he saw that Liang Xinran was still reading and sent his assistant a WeChat message to ask him to prepare lunch.
He looked in Liang Xinrans direction again and saw her biting the tip of her pen and flipping back and forth to one of the pages.
Her brows were tightly furrowed and she was writing something again from time to time.
However, after reading for a long time, she only flipped to that page.
He rose and walked toward her.
“Whats taking so much effort to read” he asked quietly.
“I…” Liang Xinran blushed and was very embarrassed.
“Im reading a new script.
She looked troubled a few times, but Gu Jingyuan sat down beside her patiently.
As soon as she caught a whiff of his scent, she couldnt stop her imagination from running wild again.
He actually smelled of a very faint antiseptic solution mixed with other body odors that were hard to describe.
He was extremely attractive.
When she was smitten, she was exceptionally happy and adorable.
Gu Jingyuan gently took her script.
“Can I take a look”
He took it.
Her handwriting was a little untidy.
A page was scratched with all sorts of things, but that was all.
She was a little embarrassed and hesitated for a while before saying, “Im a little dyslexic.
Since I was young I have been unable to read long-winded things and cant grasp the accurate meaning the author wants to express.
So reading the script is a little difficult for me.”
She made a gesture ofa little bit, thought better of it, and said, “Its a bit hard with so many bits and pieces.”
She was embarrassed, but she didnt want to lie to him.
Since they were trying to be together, honesty was necessary.
Gu Jingyuan had already vaguely guessed it from her handwriting and performance just now.
No wonder when she usually sent WeChat messages, she mostly used voice messages and rarely typed.
When she finished, she looked up at him like a child who had made a mistake and was afraid that her parents would no longer like her.
“Am I embarrassing myself Will you still try to be a couple with me when Im like this”
Gu Jingyuans heart softened and he said softly, “Science can correct this problem if you feel that your life is disturbed.
Even if you dont correct it, it wont be a big problem.”
Liang Xinran immediately cheered up.
“Arent you doing fine now”
His tone was extremely sincere.
Liang Xinrans eyes were filled with happiness.
“Thank you for being so sure of me.”
“Then how do you usually read the script”
“Ill ask my manager or assistant to read it for me.
Ill try my best to understand.
If I can find a screenwriter, Ill try to consult them.
Sometimes, Ill ask them to teach the actors and colleagues.” Liang Xinran lowered her voice as she spoke.
“However, because of this problem, I havent taken on a female lead role until now.
Im still a little afraid that I wont be able to understand profound emotions.”
Only then did Gu Jingyuan understand why she had been playing supporting roles.
He had already seen many of her works.
Her acting skills were actually quite good, but she had never played the female lead before.
“So are you also fighting for a supporting role in this new script”
“My manager kept persuading me to take on the female lead.
She said I was perfect for the role, in every way.
But I was afraid…”
She was afraid she wouldnt understand the script and was already trying to read it.
After a morning of reading, shed taken a bunch of notes and wasnt sure if she understood them correctly.
She immediately smiled calmly.
“I can do as much as I can.
I can act as the third or fourth female lead.
I dont have many scenes, and the changes in my relationship are relatively simple.
Its easy and not tiring, and I dont have to fight with others.
Its quite good.”
How could Gu Jingyuan not hear the loneliness in her tone
She was very much like a small sun that absorbs all the good and bad and then only outputs light.
Everything else is secretly hidden.
“If you want to play the female lead, give it a try.
Ill help you understand the script in the future,” Gu Jingyuan said as he looked at her.
