Lu Jinnian, who had his head down and only cared to drink, raised his head when he heard those words. He stared directly at Qiao Anhao.
Qiao Anhao seemed as though she were shocked by this sudden scene, looking startled, giving no reaction at all.
The man recited every word from the script with deep emotion.
Following his lines, a hint as if she was being torn appeared on Qiao Anhao's face. The people in the room of her birthday party all egged her on to say 'yes'!
Lu Jinnian, who had a gla.s.s of wine in his hands, started to tighten his grip. In that split second, when Qiao Anhao nodded, he couldn't help but stand up and quietly leave.
Qiao Anhao, who hadn't even glanced at him, looked over to see his back. As though she was hesitating over something, she finally accepted the ring from the man on one knee.
The entire room was filled with cheers. Lu Jinnian, who stood outside, looked particularly lifeless.
The atmosphere in the room was beaming with joy, whilst outside, Lu Jinnian was alone in despair.
Following the director's signals, Qiao Anhao found an excuse to leave the room. When she was out, she was face-to-face with Lu Jinnian, who stood outside the door. The two of them didn't speak, but their eyes silently crossed. Then Qiao Anhao trotted over to the restroom in her high heels.
When she came out from the restroom, Lu Jinnian, who originally stood at the door, appeared near the restroom. Just like before, their eyes never met. This time, Qiao Anhao said her lines, "You go in first."
Then, she even gave Lu Jinnian a gentle smile as she strode towards him. Walking alongside her, Lu Jinnian balled up his hands into fists. Because of the strength, his knuckles were prominently white.
When he couldn't see her from the corner of his eyes anymore, he suddenly raised his arm and accurately grabbed Qiao Anhao's arm behind himself. Then he pushed her body up against the wall, lowered his head, and kissed her lips.
Qiao Anhao struggled, wanting to push Lu Jinnian off of her, but he had clamped her arm down hard. It wasn't easy for her to fight back the deepening kiss.
Qiao Anhao struggled even harder. In the end, unsure of where the strength came from, she suddenly pushed Lu Jinnian off. She raised her hand, according to the script, and slapped him across the face.
Of course, as they were filming a drama, the slap looked as though it was hard, but in fact it only lightly brushed him. Then, with her whole body trembling, Qiao Anhao recited her line, "What the h.e.l.l do you want?"
Lu Jinnian, who had just been slapped, stared straight at Qiao Anhao with trembling lips. "I just want to ask you one question..." After Lu Jinnian said this, he remained quiet for a long time. "If I told you that I fell in love with you, would you fall in love with me again?"
"No!" Qiao Anhao didn't hesitate to reply with that one word. An expression of hopelessness started to cross Lu Jinnian's face. His hand that held her shoulder gradually loosened up, and just when he really was about to pull away from her, she recited, "Because I never stopped loving you."
Lu Jinnian was stunned. Then, he suddenly kissed Qiao Anhao's lips again.
This time, the two of them needed to act like they were really into the kiss. And with that kiss, it would be the end for their filming together.
