"You're not allowed to do so." He sat by the bed and refused her at once.
She frowned. "Why?"
"You're already so skinny; if you slim down some more, won't you be just a stick figure?"
She pitifully whined, "I'll look better if I'm slimmer – more photogenic, too!"
Hugging her would feel painfully empty.
It was better for her to be a little chubbier, or else she would never fill his embrace.
She commented, "I think I gained some weight recently. Hmph. Say; if I gain more weight, won't I be a pig already?"
The man bluntly replied, "You don't have to wait till then; you're already as stupid as a pig."
She felt very hurt by his statement, as if tens of thousands of arrows had pierced through her heart.
The lights in the bedroom suddenly went out, and he covered the both of them with the quilt.
She was startled, unable to see anything clearly in the dark.
She had a severe case of nutrition loss from a young age, resulting in her severe night blindness; thus, she was afraid of the dark.
It was also from a young age that she stayed alone at home, faced the darkness alone, and hid under the blanket alone; hence, she developed a bad sleeping habit.
She groped around in the direction of the man. "Hey, Mu Yazhe… you…"
Her hand was suddenly held tightly by a big, warm hand. With a pull, she was drawn into his arms and spacious chest.
From overhead came his faint voice. "I'm here. Behave when you sleep!"
"Don't I behave when I sleep?!" she argued.
"Your sleeping posture is ungraceful, just like a koala."
Yun Shishi: "…"
The man pulled her more securely into his embrace and locked his arms around her. "Let's sleep!"
She blushed as she mumbled something before lightly shutting her eyes. She fell asleep soon after.
Lightly caressing her silky hair, he pouted his lips and gave her a light peck on the forehead.
She deliberately woke up early the next day. As he was still sleeping, she covered him with the quilt properly. She let him sleep in a little longer since it was rare for him to be on leave.
Treading lightly into the bathroom, she washed up and got dressed to head to the production site.
Before leaving, she checked her phone and saw missed calls from unknown numbers. She pursed her lips at this but did not return the calls as she was rushing to the production site; thus, the calls went unanswered.
After that elevator scare, Mu Xi exposed that hotel on the Internet; following which, it evoked a massive outrage among the netizens.
It then got revealed that the hotel would often receive obscene little cards; its privacy was not secured and so on.
As the hotel was a part of an express hotel chain, the CEO of this hotel specially opened a Weibo page to apologize for the matter, but it still could not calm the fury of the netizens.
What a joke! Gu Xingze and Yun Shishi were trapped in the elevator, and the video of it was still posted online.
It caused the fans of the two to join hands in the siege.
In short… the hotel suffered from terrible consequences.
How the hotel manager wished he could beg for mercy on his knees?! Only after a while did the matter die down, but of course, this was a story for another day.
Fully focusing on filming again after adjustment, Yun Shishi's condition resumed its best.
That day, she received a mysterious gift; it was a Mercedes Benz nanny van.
When her manager passed the set of keys to her, she got startled for a bit. "What is this?"
She carefully looked at the Benz logo on the keys and asked doubtfully, "A Benz?"
"Well, yes," he said, "a nanny van."
"So generous?" She laughed. "Boss Qin, how extravagant of you!"
