LTPC Chapter 43: I’ve Liked You From the Beginning

Yi Ran lowered her head and rubbed her cheeks, which had flushed red due to the ambiguous atmosphere. With her mind finally settled, she turned her attention to the lake’s crystallized surface. In the distance, the large moon hung in the sky. This scene really complemented the appearance of the man next to her.

“The scenery here is really good. Do you come here often?”

“When I used to live here, I would come out on the weekends to relax and organize my thoughts.” Gu Tingchuan smiled gently, holding her shoulder with one hand. He murmured softly, “Here in the summer, you can take a boat ride on the lake. There are also oak trees and willow trees nearby and more types of beautiful flowers than you can imagine.”

Yi Ran’s breath was a puff of white mist in front of her. She leaned her head on his shoulder and looked up silently at the distant lights. After a while, she said, “I don’t know if I’m disturbing your interest, but I’m really hungry…”

After she quietly muttered this, she raised her eyes and smiled at him. “And you haven’t been eating well lately. Shall we go for a big meal?”

Gu Tingchuan’s face was amused, as if he had already guessed it. “I already told Xiao Zhao to book a restaurant. Let’s go.”

Once Yi Ran was inside the car, Gu Tingchuan simply instructed the driver to drive and did not specify the destination. She felt a bit puzzled and smiled at him. ”Director Gu, are you giving me another mystery?”

The man’s expression was calm and unhurried as he leaned against the backseat of the car. He lightly said, “In short, it will be a place you’ll like.”

Yi Ran eagerly waited until they arrived at the luxurious hotel they were at last time.

Gu Tingchuan had booked the hotel’s high-level Chinese restaurant in advance. Neatly arranged on both sides of the elegant rectangular dining table were tableware and lamps that looked like unique works of art. Waiters shuttled silently between the tables and chairs while guests occasionally talked in polite murmurs.

Director Gu sat before the white tablecloth, his eyes calm and clear. His temperament was incomparably outstanding. While looking at the menu, Yi Ran told him, “Eat a little warm food to nourish your stomach.”

Gu Tingchuan nodded, made a pot of tea, and ordered a few snacks such as shrimp dumplings, crystal cakes, and other similar dishes, wanting to let her pad her belly first.

Yi Ran silently buried her face behind the menu and snickered. My God, this feeling was really great.

But, after thinking it over, she didn’t feel right. The man…hadn’t said “that” to her yet.

Even if she could almost confirm Gu Tingchuan’s thoughts, but without the words, she would always feel that there was something missing.

Gu Tingchuan inadvertently looked over and didn’t know what the girl was doing.

He had remembered what she said before very clearly. Since she had never stayed at this hotel before, he wanted to take her for a night.

Yi Ran ate hot food and looked more lively. Once they got to their hotel room, she checked it out both inside and out. Then, she took off her shoes, slipped her feet into soft slippers prepared by the hotel staff, and fell back on the comfortable bed.

This was the best presidential suite, ah… She felt that even breathing in this room would cost money.

Gu Tingchuan calmly took off his jacket, then reached out and began undoing his collar. When Yi Ran slightly raised her body to look at him, she saw that the man’s gold-plated buttons were open, and his posture was elegant and ambiguous.

Her eyes laughed at him. “Have you ever stayed alone at a hotel before?”

Gu Tingchuan’s was still taking off his clothing. He casually glanced at her and said, “Otherwise, would Xiao Zhao stay with me? I’ll take a shower first.”

Yi Ran felt that he seemed particularly anxious and didn’t know why. She just wanted to dig for some gossip and to ask if he ever had a female star coming knocking on his door before.

She turned her head and saw the bright night view of the city outside the floor-to-ceiling window. The light and furnishings in the room catered to the breathtaking view outside the window. The visual feast of this scene formed a beautiful enjoyment.

Hearing the faint sound of water flowing from the bathroom, Yi Ren still could not hold back, and her face was constantly beaming.

Not long after, Gu Tingchuan came out with a white bath towel wrapped around his narrow hips. She was curled up on the sofa, looking at her mobile phone. She glanced at him from the corner of her eyes and saw the man’s firm pectoral muscles. His back and abdomen were tall and straight. Feeling her mouth suddenly go dry, she hurried up and handed him a bottle of mineral water. “Oh right. I wanted to ask you…”

Gu Tingchuan took the water from her, but still didn’t plan to say anything. He just told her directly, “Go wash up. You were at the lakeside and your body is probably cold.”

Yi Ran: ” … ”

Why did it feel like her husband didn’t want to chat with her?

She pursed her lips. The heater was on in the room and she even ate already. She was obviously already warm enough. But, he was silently looking at her so she had to pick up her bathrobe and walk away.

The bathroom was very warm, making her feel hotter after taking a shower. Yi Ran took a water bottle from the cupboard and took a few sips. When she walked back to the bedroom, she unexpectedly happened to see the man with his bath towel off, revealing the contours of his strong legs. The area between his legs was bulging spectacularly underneath his brief.
She choked on the water in her mouth and stared at him speechlessly.

“You, what are you doing …”

Yi Ran was trembling slightly. She knew they would roll the sheets tonight, but he really was too anxious.

Gu Tingchuan heard her voice and turned around. She saw that he was on the phone but did not hear what the other party said. The man had already said, “I’ll call again later,” then promptly hang up and walked over.

Yi Ran took a step back, but he wrapped his arms around her waist and lowered his head to lightly nuzzle the slope of her neck.

“It’s itchy …”

Gu Tingchuan lightly nibbled her neck as a bit of punishment and whispered, “Do you remember … when was the last time?”

Yi Ran’s cold fingers brushed across his warm cheek. He lifted his head and gently pressed his forehead against hers. She lowered her eyes and did not dare to look at him. After all, it had been a while since they were so intimate.

“But we need to talk for a bit and cultivate the atmosphere.”

Gu Tingchuan laughed softly and lifted her slightly wet hair away. “Then we’ll talk in a while.”

Yi Ran’s entire body felt as if it was bright red as she fell back on the bed. As he was coming up, she rolled over slightly and, as a result, was hugged from behind.

She had delicate facial features, and though they were not particularly striking, she was still very beautiful. But, her face became even more charming when she blushes.

“Wait a minute …” Even if they weren’t chatting, he had to say it first.

Gu Tingchuan lowered his eyes, which were unable to hide his restlessness. “What’s wrong?”

“You, did you miss something this afternoon?”

He maintained his composure but smiled in amusement. “What?”

Yi Ran turned her face to look at the great director, her eyes bright. “You really don’t know? That… I won’t be at ease if you don’t say it.”

Gi Tingchuan tightened his hug from behind her. After a few seconds of silence, his lips parted against her ear. “Yi Ran, in fact, I’ve liked you very early on.”

It was the complete truth.

Yi Ran’s heart seemed to be swept up by a storm, and her whole body felt as if it was floating. It turned out… After being confessed to in this way, all her senses were infinitely amplified.

His lips pressed lower and lower while his fingers undid the knot of her bathrobe and peeled off the garment.

Yi Ran’s eyes were moist. Her slender figure was now lying prone on the bed, her long legs curled up, and her hands trembled as she gripped the headboard. Every slight movement of his mouth stirred her whole body, as if she was a bowstring underneath his touch.

Yi Ran couldn’t help but straightened even as she clung tightly to him. His posture made made her gasp slightly.

Gu Tingchuan’s eyes were full of amusement. “Why tremble? Are you cold?”

Yi Ran mumbled, “From behind, you’re much sexier than me.”

She still remembered the first time she saw Director Gu. From the waist to the curve of his butt, the sight was like a picture, giving her a considerable “shock”.

He embraced her, not knowing if he should express his gratitude for her praise. But, there was such a soft and smooth landscape in front of his eyes that he couldn’t help saying, “The usual practice is good.”

She was tempted into helplessness and could only slowly open her body in his arms, her toes clenched tightly. As the gap between them disappeared, she could feel the man’s inherent strength. No matter how many times, each time was a temptation that she could not resist.


The night scene was titillating. After physically exhausting her several times, Gu Tingchuan held her as they laid in bed. She turned over and looked at him, feeling that this moment was rare and incredibly satisfying.

She had always wanted to lie down and chat with him like this. However, she really didn’t know what to say. She pressed her lips together and propped her head up with her arm. She saw his profile and felt emotionally moved.

Gu Tingchuan was just talking to someone on the phone. She closed her eyes and thought for a while. Afterward, she finally said, “You said earlier that you wanted to base your movie on teachers?”

Gu Tingchuan placed the phone aside and his eyes narrowed slightly as he thought about it. “I have some ideas. I’ll see if I can write a script when we got back.”

She was deeply touched, and after thinking about it, she looked up and asked him, “Guess which of your movies I like the most? ”

Gu Tinghuan looked at her with clear eyes. “Dark River?”

“You’re so smart!” Yi Ran’s face brightened. “When I watched this film, I always felt that the thought I wanted to express was already expressed in the most beautiful way in the world. When I think of it, the whole person will feel refreshed.”

The light from outside the window scattered over her raven hair, making her look bright and hazy. It was just like her character. She was always full of contradictions, making her seem so unpredictable.

At this moment, he gave it a little thought. “In that case, let’s continue.”

After saying this, he lowered his head and kissed her forehead. He said huskily, “I won’t avoid it in the future. Even when things get difficult, I won’t avoid my feelings. I don’t think there is much I can do in this life, but at least I can leave something in the form of a movie.”

Yi Ran’s response was soft and firm as she said, “Director Gu, you will become a great master.”
