“I’ll definitely support her in the future. Her shows are worth watching for her talent and looks!”
As the actress listened to the compliments and praises by the audience around her, she was greatly encouraged.
Mu Yazhe held her hand and, with each holding the hand of a twin, the family left the theater. As they walked back to the carpark, they decided to take a stroll along the riverbank.
The night view was especially beautiful tonight.
The two boys dashed ahead as they teased each other along.
Their parents trailed after them. As Yun Shishi watched her kids have fun, a huge sense of contentment welled up within her.
This was exactly the kind of bliss that she had been seeking.
In fact, she was a conservative woman who yearned for a simple life instead more than material gains.
Now, she lived a life where she had everything she needed and a family to call hers—a family where she received warmth and love from a husband who doted on her and from her two adorable children.
She was fully satisfied with what she had now and asked for nothing more. Unlike other young girls, she did not like to seek thrill in bars, discos, or nightclubs. Such places were rowdy and predatory—something she disdained. She preferred to spend her time like this whenever she was free. Living a carefree life where she could take a quiet walk with the man she loved was good enough for her.
Some might call her a loser, but the truth was that she asked for nothing more. The good times did not come by easy to her, so thanking her lucky stars, she sincerely wished to treasure even more of what she had now.
Life was unpredictable, and one could never guess what the next day might bring.
Thus, she could only treasure what she had now.
“Life is good!” She suddenly blurted out. “It’s a blessing to enjoy a peaceful life such as this.”
“Why are you sentimental today?” asked the man with a chuckle.
“I was touched by what I have now.” She then gave a serene smile. “I plan to leave showbiz after acting in a few more films. I don’t wanna be caught up with work; I prefer a peaceful life like this. There’s no need to have lots of money—having enough to spend is good enough.”
“Haven’t I told you that you can stop acting any time? I can support you.”
“Of course, I know that you’re more than capable of taking care of me! In fact, you’re so rich that you can support me a few thousand times.”
“Then, why are you still so insistent on acting?” The man could not understand it.
“It’s my dream to act. A person must have dreams, or else one is no different from a shrimp. I want to have a go at self-actualization.”
“You’re a little moron.”
As the two chatted happily, they finally reached the carpark. The woman had to beckon their sons, who were fooling around, into the car before they could head home.
After coaxing the boys in bed, she went to wash up. Just as she crawled into bed, the energetic man wanted her again.
“It’s late, so we’d better go to bed!” She rejected his advances and pushed him away.
“But I want it now.”
His ambitious nature was apparent in his short reply.
His wife chose to ignore his desire. “It’s already 11 PM, and you have to wake up early for work tomorrow.”
“That’s not a problem; I have the stamina.”
“You can’t even if you have good stamina. I must wake up earlier than you for a shoot tomorrow!”
“It won’t take long.” The man could not hide his urge as he climbed on top of her, attempting to bargain his way through.
The woman blushed and mumbled, “I-I’m having my period these two days; it’s inconvenient—”
“Period?” He was not entirely convinced. “Are you sure?”
“Why should I lie about this? I’m really having my period now.”
