Gu Nian had gone to the bathroom and when she came back, seeing that there were only four actors left on the terrace, she walked over in a daze.
Luo Xiu was leaning back in his chair without moving, only turning his head when he heard footsteps.
Gu Nian stopped in a daze, and pointed to the three empty chairs diagonally opposite: “Where are they… people?”
“Probably went back for tutoring.”
“Well, the program team will take away their computers, mobile phones and other items tomorrow morning.”
Gu Nian was stunned and leaned against the long table: “Then they are going back to review the characters and plot materials on the computer.”
Seeing that she had no intention of leaving, Luo Xiu smiled and lowered his eyes: “Aren’t you going? They seemed to be racing against time when they left.”
Gu Nian brushed aside the hair that was blown to her ears by the sea breeze and smiled with the corners of her eyes curled up: “I don’t, I’m a talented player.”
Luo Xiu nodded seriously.
Gu Nian laughed: “Did you really believe it?”
“You are too easy to deceive, haha.”
“But even if you don’t say it yourself, I think so.”
Gu Nian was stunned, she looked down at him with her jet-black eyes, and asked for confirmation with a little uncertainty in her heart: “Why?”
Luo Xiu didn’t speak.
Gu Nian hesitated: “Do you know that I am…”
A sudden voice interrupted the delicate atmosphere between the two.
Gu Nian paused and had no choice but to turn around. Standing obliquely behind Luo Xiu’s chair was another male guest of the cast, with flaxen curly hair, wearing hip-hop-style loose clothes, and showing two small canine teeth when he smiled, he was full of youthful vibes.
Gu Nian knew him, Yu Song, he became popular when he debuted at the age of 20. He was only 23 this year, but his popularity in the industry was even half a line higher than that of Zong Shiyi.
The fact that the “Gold Medal Screenwriter” program group could invite him to be a resident guest so quietly was enough to prove that the background strength of this program was terrifying.
The other party took the initiative to say hello, so Gu Nian couldn’t ignore it anyway, she could only stand up straight from the table and nod to the other party: “Hello.”
Yu Song stretched out his hand, and the smile on his face made the little tiger teeth on the corner of his mouth become more obvious: “I am Yu Song.”
Gu Nian hesitated for a moment, but still raised the hand that was hanging by her side, towards the hand of the man who was stretching his hand towards her: “Gu Nian—”
Her hand was still a short distance away, when she was cut off.
Gu Nian’s eyes flickered, Luo Xiu had gotten up from the chair, held Yu Song’s hand one step ahead of her, and turned his back to block her from sight.
“Hello,” the voice of the person with his back to her was gentle, “I’m Luo Xiu.”
A very low hiss came into her ears, and Gu Nian stared blankly at Luo Xiu’s motionless back. Just as she was about to go around, she vaguely heard something like “You’re so stingy”.
Gu Nian: “…?”
Gu Nian was still wondering about what she heard, when Luo Xiu moved sideways to get out of the space in front of her, Yu Song was grimacing initially, but immediately changed to a bright smile after meeting her gaze.
Gu Nian hesitated for a moment, but still looked at Luo Xiu: “You guys, do you know each other?”
Yu Song smiled with his small tiger teeth, while Luo Xiu’s expression was indifferent, and the two spoke at the same time——
Yu Song: “Yes.”
Luo Xiu: “I don’t know him.”
There was a few seconds of silence.
Yu Song looked back with a hurt expression: “?”
Under Gu Nian’s gaze, Luo Xiu changed his words indifferently: “We’re not acquaintances, but we met once when I went to BH Media to sign the program contract.”
Gu Nian suddenly nodded— she was also wondering, although her baby was very handsome, but after all, he was the real 180 line star, it was reasonable for him to not have any intersection with Yu Song who was a first-line traffic star.
It turned out that they met when they went to BH Media to sign the contract together.
Gu Nian made Luo Xiu’s logic perfect by herself, completely oblivious to the fact that Yu Song was staring at Luo Xiu tearfully and accusingly while rubbing his hand that had been clenched red with a slight warning just now.
Luo Xiu pretended not to see it.
When Gu Nian came back to her senses, Yu Song had consciously returned to normal, and asked her with a smile: “Won’t screenwriter Gu go back to prepare tomorrow’s script?”
“There is nothing to prepare.”
Yu Song: “Haven’t the other three screenwriters already gone back to prepare?”
Gu Nian: “They are professional streamers.”
Yu Song: “Then who is screenwriter Gu?”
Gu Nian said with a face: “Heavenly horses flow in the sky.”
Yu Song: “…Pfft.”
Yu Song’s laughter quickly attracted the attention of the other two ladies at the end of the long table. They seemed to discuss something, then they got up and came towards this side.
Gu Nian glanced at them out of the corner of her eye, and wanted to hide under the long table with a headache.
Unfortunately it was not possible.
The two actresses who came over, one of them was naturally Zong Shiyi who had a little grudge against Gu Nian, while the other was quite special——
Wen Chu, the youngest actress in the domestic first-line film and television awards, 26 this year, a child star, her strong acting skills were comparable to some old drama bones, but she was very low-key on weekdays, without any marketing or hype, and thus had an excellent reputation.
This should be her first time participating in a variety show.
Gu Nian once again sighed in her heart that the background and connections of BH Media behind the “Gold Medal Screenwriter” program group were terrible.
Then she took the initiative to say hello to the two: “Miss Wen, Miss Zong.”
Aside from Wen Chu’s status as a movie queen, Gu Nian was still breastfeeding when she was a three- or five-year-old child star, and as a younger generation junior, she had to show proper respect.
Zong Shiyi immediately responded with a gentle greeting, while Wen Chu just nodded coldly.
Gu Nian was not surprised.
Unlike the 23-year-old Yu Song who was teased by everyone as “forever 18”, Wen Chu was only 26, but in the eyes of some acting juniors of the same age, her majesty was comparable to that of a 62-year-old senior.
It was not because she looked old, it was just that she had always been indifferent and didn’t like to talk. She always had an aura as cold as a female general who could kill you with a swing of a long knife at any time or when she wanted to take the dog’s head off your neck.
Therefore, among Wen Chu’s unusually low-key fan base, the largest number were girls who shouted “Sister is good” and “Sister marry me” all day long.
Gu Nian believed that there was absolutely no young man who could stand up to her heroic aura—
“Wow, sister is so cool, can you sign an autograph for me, sister?”
Looking at the young man who smiled brightly at Wen Chu with his little tiger teeth, she silently dragged back her previous words in her heart.
She was wrong.
There would never be a shortage of true warriors in the world.
Gu Nian didn’t like most social occasions, thinking about going to one was enough to make her feel tired. But perhaps because of Luo Xiu’s presence tonight, she enjoyed it quite a bit.
But this joy did not last past 9 o’clock.
The colder the sea breeze, the more cheerful the “sister” in her ear. Gu Nian secretly yawned and was mobilizing her sleepy brain cells to think about how to find a reason to leave, when she heard the chair beside her being pulled on the terrace floor.
“Sorry, it’s getting late, I’m going back to rest.”
Gu Nian raised her eyes immediately.
Before her eyes could fall on him asking for help, she heard the voice asking with a gentle smile, “Miss Gu, do you want to go back with me?”
“…” After being addressed closely for a long time, the phrase “Miss Gu” stunned Gu Nian.
Even though she knew that Luo Xiu was trying to avoid suspicion, Gu Nian still felt an inexplicable sense of loss. She didn’t have time to think about this emotion, she just got up quickly: “Okay, I’m also just a little sleepy.”
Saying goodbye to the other three, Gu Nian and Luo Xiu went down the terrace on the top of the mountain one by one, and walked along the stone steps towards the wooden house by the sea at the bottom of the short mountain.
The night was silent and Gu Nian was in a daze, as they returned to their residence without saying a word all the way.
After stepping in the wooden corridor, Gu Nian suddenly came back to her senses and looked behind her.
After taking a step or two behind her, the man looked at her tenderly with his brows and eyes. His gaze caused ripples on the lake in Gu Nian’s heart to ripple once or twice, and then they spread wider and wider.
She was inexplicably flustered, and hid her smile: “Luo Xiu, why didn’t you speak all the way?”
“Seeing that you are tired,” Luo Xiu smiled lightly, “I don’t want to disturb you.”
“Well, it’s actually okay.” Gu Nian was walking backwards, so when she lowered her head, she saw her own shadow being followed by Luo Xiu, step by step.
She was stunned again.
By the time she came back to her senses again, Gu Nian had already turned the corner outside the corridor and stood outside the door of her room.
She hesitated to open the door: “Then, see you tomorrow?”
Luo Xiu chuckled and asked, “Is there anything else you want to tell me?”
Gu Nian stopped.
Of course there was.
Seeing through the girl’s embarrassment, Luo Xiu sighed silently.
He lowered his eyes and took a step forward, just in time to meet the girl in front of him leaning against the door, turning her head up: “Tomorrow’s challenge—”
The courage she had finally summoned disappeared after seeing him at such a short distance.
Gu Nian froze.
Before her brain in a muddled state could react, a scene which was deeply burned into her sight appeared, the man slightly raised his arms to support the edge of the wall next to the door, and he bent slightly.
As if trying to match her height, his thin figure lowered under the eaves, and the light waves of the sea far away from the mountains seemed to surround him.
At the nearest place where Gu Nian would not be startled, he stopped.
Luo Xiu looked at her deeply, then lowered his eyes, and seemed to smile: “It may be a bit of a violation of the rules to say this, but I still can’t restrain my selfishness.”
“Tomorrow’s matching competition…”
Luo Xiu finally raised his eyes, and under the backlight, those brown eyes became like ink, bottomless.
He leaned into her ear, like an intimate whisper, a little secret shared between teammates –
“Do you want me, Gu Nian?”
Gu Nian froze suddenly.
