‘‘Ryan is here?’’ Wendy thought inwardly.
She was stunned for a moment.Then she sat up and coughed lightly.
“You are overthinking. Maybe he is here to see you.”
“Maybe,” Jeffery agreed flatly.
But deep inside him, he complained, ‘He will never pay me a visit without a good reason.’
Although he was complaining in his heart, he didn’t dare to delay his action.He pressed a button, and the gate of the villa opened automatically.He then opened the door of the house spontaneously and waited at the door in a fidgety manner.
From a distance, he saw Ryan slowly walking towards him in grey casual clothes.Ryan was only wearing casual clothes, but with his solemn face, his momentum was still unabated.
Behind Ryan was Luke, carrying a huge package in his hands.
In contrast with Ryan, he was dressed in a fancy shirt printed with peony patterns.
Seeing the two men, Wendy breathed a sigh of relief.She turned to Jeffrey and said in a low voice, “Look, they are here to see you.Obviously, they care about you.”
Jeffrey glared at her fiercely.
While they were talking, Ryan and Luke were about to walk into the living room.
“Hello, there.Why are you here?” Jeffrey suddenly said.
“Why? Are we not welcome here?”
“Oh, no, no, no.Come on in!”
Jeffrey quickly turned his body sideways, giving way for the two men to enter the house.
As soon as Luke entered the living room, he exclaimed exaggeratedly, “Wow, what a coincidence! Wendy, you are also here!”
‘Oh, heck! He is acting again, ‘ Jeffrey thought, his mouth twitched wildly.
He was not convinced that they didn’t know that Wendy was here.
While they were talking, Ryan and Luke had already sat down on the sofa.Ryan sat next to Wendy, leaned against the sofa, and stretched his arm at the back.It was as if he was hugging her.
Jeffrey was taken aback.
What he was seeing right now only confirmed his conjectures.
As far as he could remember, Ryan had never taken the initiative to get close to a woman.
He was now positive that Ryan liked Wendy.
‘’Damn! Wendy is not vigilant at all, ‘’ he complained inwardly upon seeing that she was still as calm as before.
“Bruce, I’m thirsty.”
Upon hearing this, Jeffrey went to the kitchen and fetched several ice-cold drinks, including beer, Coke, Sprite, and mineral water.
When he returned to the living room, he said, “Take whatever you want to drink.”
Ryan took a bottle of mineral water, Wendy took the can of Sprite, and Luke took the can of beer.
Jeffrey sat down on the other side of Wendy, opened the can of Coke, and took two gulps.
All of a sudden, Ryan said, “Don’t you know that Coke decreases the motility of sperm cells?”
Jeffery was so shocked by Ryan’s words that he almost squirted out the Coke in his mouth.Wendy almost chocked on the Sprite.Luke, on the other hand, couldn’t help but burst into laughter.
Before Jeffery could finish his words, Ryan took the package from Luke and threw it to him, saying, “Your grandfather has asked me to bring this to you.He knows that you’re back, so he wants you to go home and have a meal with him when you are free.”
“Okay,” Jeffrey obediently said, standing in front of Ryan like a primary school student.
The way he reacted amazed Wendy.
She didn’t expect him to be afraid of Ryan.
Jeffrey put down the Coke on the coffee table and said, “I’ve been busy with shooting since I came back, so I’m sorry I haven’t been able to visit you.But I’ve brought gifts for Precious from abroad.I’ll give it to her next time we meet.”
Then…There was pin-drop silence in the living room.Sitting between Ryan and Jeffrey, Wendy felt embarrassed.So she moved her body uneasily.
“Do you feel uncomfortable?” Ryan asked, looking down at her.
“No, no, no.”
“You said you’re going home to take a nap, right? Why are you here?” he asked very naturally.
“I’m here because we’re going to rehearse for the scene we’re going to shoot tomorrow.”
As she spoke, Wendy took out the script and smiled awkwardly.
“We are a couple in the ‘Story of Concubine Ivanka.’ I haven’t been to the crew for several days because of the trouble caused by Evie.But I’m going to shoot tomorrow, so I’m here to practice with Jeffery in advance.”
Upon hearing her explanation, Ryan glanced at the script casually.And when he saw the content of the script, his eyes narrowed slightly.
“What’s wrong?” Wendy asked in confusion.
She noticed that the expression on his face changed.
“Nothing,” Ryan said and withdrew his gaze.
“Are you done now?”
“We haven’t started yet.”
He nodded and took two sips of his mineral water.
Sitting there as if he had no intention of leaving, he said, “You can start now.”
Wendy was rendered speechless.And so was Jeffrey.
In the end, the two of them bit the bullet and began to play their roles.But under Ryan’s gaze, she couldn’t focus on her acting.
She got distracted, especially in the parts where she had to flirt with Jeffrey or when she had to have physical contact with him.
She felt that a chilly wind was blowing behind her, making her unable to get into the scene at all.
Not only her but Jeffrey was also affected by Ryan’s powerful aura.He couldn’t play his role as well.
“It can’t work this way! The atmosphere is not right.We can’t even internalize our roles.Let’s just do it in the shooting site tomorrow.”
‘Humph! Ryan, don’t think that I don’t know what you’re thinking.But you can’t do anything with it.We will definitely shoot the kissing scene, ‘ Jeffery thought to himself.
Thinking of this, he casually threw the script.
Luke sat down beside him and put his arm around his shoulder as if they were intimate to each other.
Luke then leaned over and asked curiously, “Bruce, how did you meet Wendy?”
“I fell in love with her at first sight when we were filming a scene together,” Jeffery replied calmly.
“Then you pursued her and broke up with her when the fun was over?” Luke asked again.
Jeffrey’s face turned gloomy at once.
“It’s true that I pursued her.But it wasn’t me who dumped her.It was her who dumped me.”
“Uh…” Luke became more curious.
He looked at Jeffrey and then at Wendy.
Scratching his head anxiously, he said, “Bruce, tell me what happened.”
“I also want to know,” Jeffery said crossly because he also didn’t understand why.
He was so handsome and popular.
He treated Wendy well, and he didn’t mind that she had a son.
But he didn’t expect that she would break up with him.
“Wendy, tell me quickly, what is going on between the two of you?” Wendy sighed.
She said, “Luke, it’s a pity that you didn’t become a paparazzo.”
“Come on, tell me!”
This time, not only Luke but Ryan also became curious.
Wendy’s scalp tingled.
She said vaguely, “Just after we were together, I realized that we didn’t get along well as a couple, so I broke up with him.”
Luke was obviously disappointed.
“What else can there be?”
‘Boring, ‘ Luke thought inwardly.
He expected that there would be more stories.
“It’s half past three,” Ryan suddenly said.
Then he looked at Wendy.
When he saw the confuslon on her face, he added, “It’s lime lo prepare dinner.”
Once again, Wendy was rendered speechless.
It was summer now, so it usually got dark at seven o’clock in the evening.
Besides, they had just eaten lunch.
“Are you already hungry?”
“Oh.I’ll go back and prepare dinner then.”
The more Jeffrey listened to them, the more strange he felt.
‘‘Why do I feel like the way they converse sounds like they are a married couple? Yes, they’re like husband and wife.I’m sure others who can hear them will also feel the same.But how can it be? What the hell! When Ryan said that he would go to Wendy’s house for dinner, she looked as calm as usual.It’s as if she is already used to It.Shit! I’ve told her that Ryan has his own purpose, but she doesn’t believe me.No, this can’t be.I must let her see Ryan’s real intention.’’
Thinking of this, Jeffrey stood up at once and said, “I’m hungry too.I’ll go with you.”
