My Bossy CEO Husband, Chapter 46 Ex-boyfriend
‘It’s Jeffrey! Why would he be here, of all places?’ As Wendy pondered on this thought, the corners of her mouth quivered.
The two met each other when they were acting for the same movie in M country.
At that time, he was the main character of the film.
On the other hand, she was merely a stand-in who wasn’t even featured in the movie itself.
How it really started didn’t matter anymore.
The fact was, they started dating but the romance lasted for only three short days.
Afterwards, they went their separate ways.
Even though the relationship ended fast, she still considered him to be her ex-boyfriend.
While Carter was busy introducing them to each other, Jeffrey gave her a wink.
Looking at his bright green hair, Wendy’s lips twitched as she immediately shifted her gaze away from him.
The instant he took off his mask, lots of girls started screaming.
“Oh my! Can it be? It’s really Jeffrey!”
“I couldn’t believe it! He’s acting in the Story of Concubine Ivanka! Thank God! I’ll have the rare chance of seeing him in the set every single day.How lucky of me! Is this a dream? People say that he only takes up leading roles.Why on earth would he act in this one where the main male role has already been taken? That doesn’t matter though! I love him!”
“I love you too, Jeffrey!”
All of a sudden, the set transformed into a fan meet and greet of Jeffrey.
Almost all the women present, regardless of their ages, were screaming like teenage girls.
Their faces were flushed with exhilaration.
They could not be blamed for their indiscretion though.
After all, it was Jeffrey! It was a well-known fact that he was the most popular male artist in the nation by far.
When he was just sixteen years old, he made his debut as a singer, and had taken home prestigious music awards in the country since then.
Afterwards, he pursued a career as an actor.
His good looks and charming demeanor attracted a lot of adoring fans.
In all the movies and TV series he took part in, he always had the leading role.
As of the present day, he had entered and planned to dominate the international stage.
Considering this, it was a surprise that he was willing to play in the Story of Concubine Ivanka as a supporting actor! Truly, everyone was aghast by this news! A grin stretched across Carter’s face as he explained it to Wendy, “Jeffrey will be playing the role of Weston Taylor!”
“Seriously? Is that true?”
She couldn’t believe what she heard.
‘What the hell! He’s really going to play Weston Taylor!’ She was shocked.
Who was he in the film, then? He was Faye’s previous fiance before she entered the imperial palace! Her father and brother had rejected the emperor’s offer to have her as his concubine at first.
Fearing that the emperor would eventually force them, they quickly arranged a marriage for her.
During those times, people put more importance on literature than martial arts.
They held the belief that scholars had a higher regard than any other occupation.
Therefore, in order to improve the reputation of their family, which was a military clan, her father chose a scholar, the son of a civil official, to be his son-in-law.
The chosen scholar was none other than Weston.
Faye was only a young spoiled lady then.
This arranged marriage wasn’t favorable for her, but her father and brother looked up to Weston a lot.
She then became curious about what they saw in him, so she sneaked into the Taylor’s Palace in the middle of the night and broke into his room.
He turned out to be a handsome and gentle person, which was completely different from the boring bookworm she had imagined he was.
She fell in love with him at first sight.
Contrary to this, he wasn’t fond of this rude daughter of the general’s at first.
Although, as she pursued him ever so passionately, he fell for her later on.
Wendy then realized that she was going to play a couple in this play with her ex-boyfriend! Now, wasn’t this a dramatic coincidence?
“I sincerely apologize that I’ve not informed you about this until now.Jeffrey’s schedule was very uncertain at the time, so I ended up announcing his role in the play last minute.Now it’s settled,” Carter added.
She was in a trance and speechless to say the least.
Carter only thought that she too was a big fan of Jeffrey and was too excited to utter a word.
With his involvement in the show, there was no need to worry about the popularity and ratings of the TV series.Obviously, Carter was very glad about this.
Looking at the exhilaration of the crew that had reached breaking point, he knew that they couldn’t calm down and resume shooting.
Carter then waved his hand and announced in a joyful mood, “Well, let’s wrap up for today.We’ll continue this tomorrow morning!”
After Carter’s announcement, the women in the crew quickly rushed over to Jeffrey.
“Everyone, please stop!”
He motioned with his hand and everybody halted in their tracks.
Flashing a warm smile, he said, “It’s getting quite late now, guys.I just returned from abroad and I’m in need of some rest.If you want my autograph, I’m very willing to entertain you all tomorrow, okay?”
The entire crew nodded in unison.Jeffrey took the opportunity to escape from his die-hard fans.
“Wait! Wendy, where are you headed?”
As soon as the crew left, he moved forward to block her path.
He had delicate features, and fair skin.
His jet black eyebrows extended to his temples, adding much to his already masculine frame.
As he struck a pose, he placed one hand on the wall.
He eyed her as he asked, “Hey beautiful, would you like to have dinner with me?”
“No, thank you.I’m busy!”
She walked by without even looking at him.
Jeffrey strode to catch up to her and said, “I don’t accept that answer, Wendy.How could you act like this? I’m your boyfriend! We can’t even have dinner together now?”
She suddenly halted, and he almost hit her back.
“Excuse me, you are my ex-boyfriend!” She exclaimed.
“I didn’t even agree to call it quits with you.”
“Go screw yourself!”
Soon after, Wendy felt a shot of pain go through her head.
She then grabbed his wrist and said, “Come to my place!”
He raised an eyebrow and leaned towards her.
“Since when have you become so straightforward?”
She couldn’t resist the urge to slap him across his face.
“Take back all your dirty thoughts! I’m just asking you to pass by my home and take back your gold!”
Jeffrey wasn’t angered by her harsh actions.
Instead, his eyes brightened and he looked genuinely happy.
“Wendy, how did you know that those gifts were sent by me? It looks like you know me way better than I thought you did.Without looking back at him, she continued to walk forward.Upon hearing what he had said, she rolled her eyes and teased him mercilessly,
“I mean, it’s quite hard to forget about your terrible handwriting!”
He immediately guffawed.
She immediately covered his mouth in a rush and pulled him to a corner.
She then checked her surroundings and felt relieved when she saw that no one else was around.
He suddenly stuck out his tongue and gently licked her palm.
She was taken aback by the warm sensation it left.
Wendy swiftly withdrew her hand and continuously rubbed her palm against her dress until he felt ashamed.
“Tell me, Jeffrey, and answer honestly! Why have you come here? Why would you even consider a role in the Story of Concubine Ivanka? No more nonsense.Tell me the truth!”
“I did this because I’m going after you, of course!”
“Should I punch you right here and now?” Slightly flinching because of her threat, he muttered in a low voice, “Other women are just like bees seeing honey when they catch sight of me, while you always treated me so harshly.
Not once have you shown me any tenderness! She sneered at him and said, “You know you can enjoy the tenderness of many women if you want.”
“Well, I don’t want to.Maybe I have some masochistic tendencies, and that’s why I like you so much!”
Jeffrey rested one hand on Wendy’s shoulder.
He squinted his eyes at her and said, “Tell me, and be honest as well! Did you ever cheat on me when I was abroad?”
