Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
In a blink of an eye, Song Ci had arrived at the audition venue. It was a five-star hotel. She looked around, but David was not there. Earlier, he had received a message from a staff member, asking why Song Ci did not turn up. Hence, he called her. Of course, David had zero expectations. He was already in a hurry to find a producer who would sleep with Song Ci.
Song Ci could roughly guess why David did not come. Upon thinking about this, she made up her mind to succeed in the audition. She asked the crew about the current situation and left her contact information for one of the staff. Then, she went to find a quiet place to rehearse. To win a battle, one had to be prepared. Her meeting with Lu Gan was all coincidental.
Song Ci left the meeting room and went up the stairs. She could not find a suitable place. There were too many people in this hotel today. Since Song Ci had no choice, she chose the parking lot. It was a big place. There were a lot of cars but not many people. If she was lucky, she might not run into anyone.
Song Ci coughed as she took out her phone. After looking through her lines, she began her rehearsal.
Meanwhile, Lu Gan was sitting in the car. He raised his hand to look at his watch and planned to get out in an hour.
“Young master, aren’t you getting out of the car?” asked the driver.
Lu Gan replied softly, “There’s no rush. Tell them to wait.”
Just as he finished speaking, he heard a woman’s sorrowful voice coming from outside. The woman’s voice sounded familiar.
“Why? Why did you leave me?”
Then, the voice was suppressed to sound more manly and old.
“I didn’t have a choice. Yisha, we… We really can’t be together.”
After saying that, the voice changed back to a woman’s.
“Why can’t we be together? I don’t mind that you’re older than me. I love you. Besides, you love me too, right?”
Once again, the voice switched to somewhat manly.
“We can’t be together because I’m your long-lost father…”
Lu Gan looked at the familiar face that was not far away. Then, he thought to himself, ‘What kind of idiot would write such a script?’
Anyway, the other party was still immersed in her act and kept switching roles. One moment she was mad, the next she was miserable. It was rather heart-wrenching to watch. Lu Gan winded down the car window. He was enjoying the show.
Song Ci was so engrossed in her acting that she did not notice that someone was observing her.
However, the more Lu Gan watched, the more sleepy he became. His eyelids became heavier and heavier. Eventually, he slowly closed his eyes and leaned against the car seat before falling asleep.
When Lu Gan opened his eyes again, an hour had passed. The driver had woken him up.
“Young master, shall we get out of the car?”
Lu Gan was in a daze. After a while, he said in disbelief, “I… Fell asleep?”
The driver nodded.
Lu Gan was silent for a long time. He looked at the spot where Song Ci was performing earlier. She was no longer there. Regardless, he was shocked at himself.
Did he actually fall asleep?
Unbelievable. Ever since the accident, he had trouble sleeping. Even if he was extremely tired, he could only lie down. His brain would still be very active and his body could not rest.
No matter how many doctors he visited, none of them could find a solution for him. His insomnia just got worse and worse.
He was haunted by the accident. Whenever he closed his eyes, he would see the moment when his brother and sister-in-law died. Despite that, he somehow fell asleep just now.
The much-needed rest made him feel a lot better.
What was Song Ci doing? Was there anyone else around her? What was her purpose? At this moment, Lu Gan felt that none of it mattered.
If she could make him sleep peacefully, then that was all he needed.
He would let Song Ci do anything as long as she did not harm Lu Suo.
A person could only achieve their goals if they could keep living and lacking sleep would deteriorate one’s health.
Lu Gan still had many things to do, such as raising Lu Suo. He could not afford to die yet.
As Lu Gan thought about it, he found Song Ci’s number and sent her a message.
“Come over tomorrow.”
Song Ci had just come out of the bathroom when she saw the message. She could not help but shake her head.
‘Tsk, what an arrogant man!
‘Look at his text. Does he think he’s a benevolent emperor?’
Nonetheless, she still pretended to be excited and quickly replied, “Really? That’s great. I’m so happy!”
Lu Gan hastily responded as well.
“There’s something else that will make you even happier.”
“Let’s get married.”
“Really? I’m elated. I love you! Kisses!”
Lu Gan looked at Song Ci’s enthusiastic response. Her acting skills were really good. The salary paid to her was totally not in vain!
