&x201C;Of course you are not just a decorative item,&x201D; Xiao Chennan replied and his voice sounded a little hoarse. &x201C;I am just&x2026;very afraid of taking any medication.&x201D;
Vera could not help but smile when she saw the miserable and pitiful expression on his face. &x201C;Why are you still acting like a child even at this age? You have to continue filming tomorrow. How are you going to get well if you refuse to take any medicine? Please be good and listen to me. Take your medicine and then have a good sleep tonight so that you will be well enough tomorrow. Can you listen to me just this once?&x201D;
Xiao Chennan leaned against the bedframe before he nodded. &x201C;Yes, yes, I will listen to you.&x201D;
After that, Vera took out the cold and fever medicine that she had on standby for Jiang Yuning before feeding the medicine to Xiao Chennan.
After he finally swallowed the medicine, Vera helped Xiao Chennan lie down in bed before she said, &x201C;Go to sleep now.&x201D;
As soon as Vera turned around, Xiao Chennan quickly grabbed her wrist and asked, &x201C;Where are you going?&x201D;
&x201C;I am just going to look around and see if there is anything to eat in this room. I am worried that you will have nothing to eat if you get hungry later,&x201D; Vera replied helplessly.
Xiao Chennan let go of Vera&x2019;s hand before he silently watched as she walked out of the bedroom and got busy in the living room.
Perhaps it was because it had been so many years since he last felt this kind of warmth, Xiao Chennan suddenly felt a sense of security and comfort and he quickly fell asleep after taking the medicine. However, he did not sleep for too long and when he woke up, it was around eleven o&x2019;clock at night.
At this time, Xiao Chennan realized that the lights in the living room was still on but there was the sound of running water from the bathroom.
Was Vera taking a shower here in his room?
Xiao Chennan slowly got out off bed and when he stood up, Vera was also coming out of the bathroom after taking a shower.
As Vera did not bring any clothes with her when she came to Xiao Chennan&x2019;s room, she was wearing the hotel bathrobe and her hair was still dripping wet. Vera was also barefooted as she stepped into Xiao Chennan&x2019;s bedroom.
Vera was perhaps this relaxed because she did not expect Xiao Chennan to wake up in the middle of the night.
Therefore, when their eyes met, the atmosphere was a little awkward for a few seconds before Vera started blushing in an instant.
&x201C;I&x2026;I did not go back to Yuning&x2019;s room because I was worried about you.&x201D;
&x201C;Come over here&x2026;&x201D; Xiao Chennan said to Vera directly.
Vera was stunned for a moment but she walked towards Xiao Chennan&x2019;s bed barefooted and at this time, Xiao Chennan grabbed Vera and sat her down next to him on the bed.
When Vera heard Xiao Chennan&x2019;s words, she did not move or struggle at all.
&x201C;Vera, you are seriously overestimating my self-control.&x201D;
&x201C;But you are still ill,&x201D; Vera replied in a soft voice as she leaned against the man sitting beside her. At this time, it seemed as though they were both feeling a little warmer&x2026;and maybe a little feverish.
Xiao Chennan did not reply but he continued hugging Vera tightly. He was not a beast anyway. After all, he was down with a bad cold and fever and he knew that his body was inflamed. If he passed the infection over to Vera unintentionally, then he would also be the one feeling distressed in the end anyway.
So, after a brief moment, Xiao Chennan finally let go of Vera before he said, &x201C;Go and dry your hair quickly, then come to bed.&x201D;
Vera looked at the empty spot on the bed next to Xiao Chennan and she nodded her head before she went into the bathroom again.
As Vera was drying her hair, she started to prepare herself mentally and emotionally for what was about to come. In fact, Vera no longer had any reservations against Xiao Chennan. She was already certain that she could trust and depend on this man entirely. Therefore, she would be able to let go of herself but even if this was the case, women would always feel very excited and a little scared&x2026;when facing this kind of situation for the first time.
After a short moment, Vera finally returned to the bedroom and saw that Xiao Chennan was already sleeping on one side of the bed. Vera walked past Xiao Chennan and slowly climbed into the other side of the bed. After lying down in bed, Vera turned around to face Xiao Chennan before she reached out her hand to touch his forehead. Vera was relieved when she found out that his fever had already subsided.
At this time, Xiao Chennan suddenly grabbed Vera&x2019;s wrist as he whispered, &x201C;You had better behave yourself and sleep properly. Otherwise, you can take chances at your own risk.&x201D;
After hearing Xiao Chennan&x2019;s words, Vera laid down on her side of the bed in a very obedient manner. After a brief moment, she could hear that Xiao Chennan&x2019;s breathing had already slowed down and he was already falling asleep.
Vera moved closer to Xiao Chennan in the dark room before she rested her head against Xiao Chennan&x2019;s shoulder.
Xiao Chennan did not say anything but he simply reached out his hand and patted her head gently and he fell asleep shortly after that&x2026;
This was the first time that the both of them were sharing the same bed and Vera felt as though her heart could not stop beating so quickly. She tried to calm herself down and it took her a long time to calm herself down before she finally fell asleep.
When Vera woke up the next morning, she realized that she was the only one left in bed. This was because both Xiao Chennan and Jiang Yuning had to get up early as they had to film an early morning scene that was already scheduled for the day.
Vera quickly changed into her clothes but as soon as she walked out of the bedroom, she saw that Qing Yan was already sitting in the living room as though he had been waiting for her all along.
&x201C;Sister-in-Law, you are awake?&x201D;
&x201C;Well, I&x2026;&x201D; Vera stuttered as she ran her hand through her hair in an awkward manner.
&x201C;Brother Nan has already left to film his morning scene. Don&x2019;t worry about him, he is already feeling much better, he is well and healthy today. It seems as though you are really the only medicine that can cure him,&x201D; Qing Yan replied as he laughed. &x201C;Anyway, Brother Nan instructed me to heat this breakfast up for you when you are awake. Sister-in-Law, to be honest, this is the first time that I have ever seen Brother Nan being so sweet and caring towards anyone at all.&x201D;
When Vera saw the ambiguous look that Qing Yan was giving her, she knew that he had misunderstood whatever Vera and Xiao Chennan had done in the bedroom last night. However, Vera was too lazy to explain herself. After all, it was a fact that both of them had slept together last night. What else was there to explain to an outsider?
&x201C;Alright then, I will eat before I leave.&x201D;
It would be the Golden Shadow Awards ceremony soon and there were still many things that Vera had to prepare for Jiang Yuning. Furthermore, Vera was still liaising with Guangying Media about the matter involving Xiao Chennan&x2019;s own start up. Vera had to get all these things done as soon as she possibly could.
Jiang Yuning was initially very happy that she had managed to secured the popularity award at the Golden Shadow Awards ceremony but now, she suddenly felt very uncomfortable when she found out that Lin Kaiyan would also be at the awards ceremony. Although this was not the first time that anyone had looked down on her or belittled her acting skills, this was truly the first time that someone had publicly humiliated her because they looked down on her. This made Jiang Yuning very uncomfortable.
This was especially so because Jiang Yuning and Lin Kaiyan would be sharing the same stage at the awards ceremony that would be held in two days and she was certain that many people would be paying attention to them both.
[With regards to the incident relating to the cast of
[Exactly! You can look down on someone&x2019;s acting skills if they&x2019;re not up to your standards but you should not be humiliating anyone like this!]
[Lin Kaiyan is acting as though he has never once acted in any bad drama productions. Does anyone here know that in his early days, Lin Kaiyan had actually acted in some dramas that did not even reach a rating of 4.0? In fact, Lin Kaiyan would just laugh it off and brush this matter aside whenever the media asks him about it. It seems as though he is very ashamed of his past.]
[Some actress who can only win the popularity award should just leave my idol alone. So what if my idol looks down on you?]
[Hahaha. Did you all know that the popularity award is in fact the most insignificant award at the Golden Shadow Awards ceremony? Hahaha. That award is just to thank the artistes for attending the awards ceremony!]
[Since you already know that you are looked down on, then you should just get your act together and start working on yourself instead of picking a fight with Lin Kaiyan now. Don&x2019;t you know your own place at all?]
[Jiang Yuning, make sure that you remember to greet our idol and call him daddy when you see him at the awards ceremony.]
[Daddy? Does Lin Kaiyan really think that he is the pillar of the entertainment industry? In my honest opinion, how can he be the pillar when he does not even have the courage to go on the big screen or act in any movies even after being in the entertainment industry for so many years already? I think that both Song Chenxing or Xiao Chennan, who have worked with Jiang Yuning, would be able to teach Lin Kaiyan how to be a man in a few minutes.]
[Hahaha. Does Jiang Yuning think that she is ascending to heaven just because she is going to receive the popularity award? I am only afraid that she would be left out in the cold after this!]
Vera and Shen Yichen were extremely annoyed and filled with rage when they read all of these comments in the office at Guangying Media.
&x201C;If my memory serves me right, this would be the third time that Lin Kaiyan is running for the best top actor or the film emperor award?&x201D;
&x201C;Based on the information I have gathered, that would be correct,&x201D; Vera replied Shen Yichen immediately.
