He was, alas, not the owner of this painting, so he could not decide on his own.
Moreover, this painting was really rare and precious; how could it be purchased with just ordinary money?
What was more; this painting was cherished deeply by his old friend. It was his baby. Even when someone offered a shockingly high price, he did not even bat an eye.
After the food was served, the manager entertained them with a few more words before excusing himself.
Yun Shishi was famished beyond belief. She quickly held her chopsticks and tried to pick up a sweet-and-sour pork rib. She felt helpless as she was not very good with chopsticks and was rusty at using them; plus, the pork rib was very slippery, and she could not pick it up no matter how hard she tried. For a moment, she was in a fix.
She was embarrassed…
She sulked a little. Biting her lower lip, she looked at the other dishes and chose something else instead. Just as she dipped her head to taste the delicacy, a piece of pork rib appeared on her plate.
Startled, she looked up, only to see him putting down his chopsticks as he looked at her indifferently.
Her heart was warm from this little consideration he showed.
Mu Yazhe smiled gently. "If you like it, eat more."
The man grabbed onto his chopsticks again, now a little hungry himself.
She did not know why, but her gaze was attracted to his milky and long knuckles.
His hands were truly beautiful. His slim and smooth fingers had distinct joints. He wore a diamond steel ring on the middle finger of his hand, which was more beautiful than a woman's.
With a hand like this holding such exquisite chopsticks, the image could not be any more stunning.
The man cast her a sidelong glance. Seeing that she was just staring at his hands, he could not help but raise a brow. "Why aren't you eating?"
"Your hands are so beautiful! They're so white and long," she gushed admiringly.
His eyes twitched as he barked, "Eat!"
When the two were done with dinner, they left the restaurant together.
Opposite the restaurant was a river. Full from their recent meal, she pulled him for a walk on the riverbanks.
Suddenly, without warning, her phone rang.
She picked up the call when she realized that it was from her manager.
"Shishi, I've gotten it for you. It's decided that you'll play Qin Xianhui of 'Lethal Beauty'."
"It's been hard on you, Mr. Qin!"
"Hmph! If I must say it, I think you are foolish. Instead of choosing the female lead role, you wanted the villain's! Don't say I didn't warn you, but after this show airs, shield yourself with a pot cover. If those drama fans recognize you, you may get pounded like a sack of vegetables."
She laughed dryly. "Will it be that bad?"
"Has the female lead been decided yet?"
"Yes! It's already decided that Lin Zhi will play it."
She pursed her lips before suddenly inquiring carefully, "Who'll play the male lead?"
"It hasn't been decided yet. When there's an outcome, I'll let you know!"
As she hung up the call, she practically radiated happiness.
She raised her head and told the man with her smilingly, "I just took on a new show; I am so happy!"
Originally, she thought that after what had happened, the chances of her getting an acting role in 'Lethal Beauty' would be slim.
Never did she think that she would clinch such an important role despite offending one of Global Pictures' top brasses.
Yun Shishi excitedly threw herself into the man's embrace. Hugging his waist, she bounced and hopped like a kid.
Even Mu Yazhe could not refrain from being infected by her happy emotions.
In his embrace, he could smell her natural fragrance and could not help tightening his arms around her body. Seeing her unable to contain her joy behind her smile, he was a little entranced.
Was she this happy just from getting a supporting role?
