LTPC Chapter 56: We Need to Talk

When the lights at the top completely came on, Yi Ran hastily wiped away the tears at the corners of her eyes. She temporarily suppressed the trembling emotions in her heart and pretended to look at these big men around her.

Although this was only the first cut of the film, it had essentially expressed the essence of the whole story. Gu Tingchuan talked to several directors about their views.

Later, Sui Jinzhi also expressed his appreciation, “The Great Learning says that all matters have a beginning and an end. To understand the meaning of culture and literature, one must first understand matters at the most ordinary grass-root level. The style is really radical. Director Gu, I admire you very much for being able to make such a movie. ”

Gu Tingchuan was not modest at all as he accepted the praise, but also had the wherewithal to ask for more.” Then I’ll make an agreement with you first. Next time, we’ll cooperate as before. You’re not allowed to refuse.”

Sui Jinzhi laughed in response, looked at the time on his watch, and said goodbye with a smile.

Although it was getting late, Gu Tingchuan still had to stay in the office to deal with some of today’s feedback and then wait until tomorrow for additional discussions.

Lu Shan greeted everyone outside the screening room and then left, leaving only the couple facing each other.

Gu Tingchuan walked over first, bowed his head and kissed her. She hooked her arms around his waist and looked up at him, “Director Gu, your surprise is really too big. How can I easily accept it?”

He knew she would have this reaction, so he hugged her and chuckled in a low voice. “The best way I can express these sentiments is in a movie. As long as you can understand it, then you don’t need to be too agitated. I don’t want you to have the opposite reaction, which would be bad.”

Yi Ran’s eyes had a strong emotion. Gu Tingchuan looked down at her and coaxed her softly from the depths of his heart, “Don’t shed tears. I don’t want to see your tears when I do this.”

But, aside from tears, she didn’t know how she could express the love and shock that was beyond words.

Yi Ran shook her head and the tips of her ears turned red. “I haven’t done anything remarkable. Even before, I was just doing everything within the natural regards of a wife. I really don’t require you to spend a lot of time…”

Gu Tingchuan frowned. He really wanted to close her mouth. “It was my choice to confess to you, but it seemed to put you under a lot of pressure instead.”

Maybe it was his kindness that made her chest felt moved with such turbulence. After thinking about it, she lifted her head and placed both hands firmly on his cheeks. Then, she raised on tiptoes to kiss his hot lips.

This kiss was delicate and tender, and just like the surprise he gave her, it was full of indescribable emotions.

He kissed her back softly and tenderly, but the kiss soon deepened and became heavier. Her hot lips were gently bitten by him, making her feel drunk.

After kissing for a while, Gu Tingchuan pulled away, leaned his forehead against her won forehead and whispered, “Don’t many directors and authors like to dedicate their work to the person they love the most? This is what you deserve. You have to accept it frankly. Otherwise, I will feel uneasy. ”

Yi Ran put her head on the man’s chest, the place that always gave her a sense of endless security. Every time, it always felt so good.

“Okay. It’s not that I don’t like it; I’m just too happy. I think I just need a little bit more time to digest it.”

She snuggled against him for a long time before whispering, “You’re really too much. You always make me cry. You obviously know I don’t like crying. ”

He was so attentive to her that she really couldn’t help but be moved.

Yi Ran really had no idea what else to say. So, she could only say again, “Aside from thank you, I really don’t know what else to say. My heart is feeling some turbulence, but I understand that my feelings for you will only increase more and more.”

She didn’t dare look at his eyes anymore and could only rest her head on his chest with the corners of her mouth tipped up.

There were only two people in the screening room. At this moment, the light of the lamps were reflected in their eyes. She relaxed and her smile widened. “Now, I’ll go to the office to rest and wait for you. Then, let’s go home together later at night, okay?”

Gu Tingchuan also smiled and then raised his hand to smooth her messy hair.

They still have a lifetime to go. This surprise will eventually just become another notch in their long memory.

Since it was determined that their daughter had married into a good family, it was not an exaggeration to say that Mother and Father Yi finally put down half a lifetime of worry. They began to focus more on traveling, which made Yi Ran feel a little envious.

Not long after they returned from visiting Dalian, they contacted their daughter to ask her to come home for dinner. She ended up going alone because Gu Tingchuan had to supervise the follow up preparatory work for Farewell to Moonlight.

After the meal, Mother Yi brought in a plate of cut pears, and Yi Ran ate it with great interest. Her father, who was still drinking, looked back at his daughter and suddenly said, “Although he is usually very busy, your husband is still really good. He’s also good to our family.”

After saying this, he saw that Yi Ran didn’t respond and continued, “I heard that he took the time to see your cousin and her husband. ”

Yi Ran was stunned. She jerked her head to look at her father, her expression startled and unhappy. “Why did he see them? What did they want?”

Originally, it was understandable for them to want to have a meal together and so she didn’t mind asking Director Gu to make some time for them.

However, Yi Jinting went ahead and contacted Gu Tingchuan in private behind her back. She had never even told Yi Ran. This had made everything awkward.

Mother Yi was puzzled and said, “What’s the matter? You didn’t know? We heard it from Jinting’s mother. Oh, she said that the two planned to buy a house in Australia and wanted to take us there for vacation in the future…”

Yi Ran shook her head blankly and did not pay attention to the rest of her mother’s words. She just hurriedly said, “What happened? What did Gu Tingchuan do?”

Mother Yi thought about it and looked at her husband. Neither of them answered for a while.

“Well, it seemed that Xiang Dongsheng’s company needed help. It’s a business matter, and we didn’t understand it very well.”

Because of this, Yi Ran spent all evening fuming. She was upset with her cousin but she also didn’t want to call her and directly confront her. She also felt a little upset with Gu Tingchuan as well.

Although, at this moment, she still couldn’t determine exactly why she was upset with him, she couldn’t help but feel upset nevertheless.

When she got home, she went online and chatted with a few good friends for a while. Gu Tingchuan finally returned home at around 9 o’clock.

Recently, the weather in the daytime had started to dry out, and the occasional rain also did not help with the heat. Even with the air conditioner on in the office, he still felt sticky whenever he had to step out and return home. He walked up to Yi Ran and kissed her on the cheek, saying, “I’ll take a shower first and come out to talk later.”

However, it was clear that Yi Ran was not the type of person to hold things in her heart for long, especially when she had been holding in her unhappiness since dinner. She thought about it for a while, then she rushed into the bathroom, raised her voice and called out his name. “Gu Tingchuan, I have something to say to you.”

The bathroom was already full of steam. Through the frosted glass, she could see the vague outline of the man’s body. Initially, Director Gu thought he was hearing things and so he slid open the glass door to check. He saw her standing outside and his expression slightly twitched.

She was…planning to watch him take a shower?

Gu Tingchuan was silent at first but when he saw that she had no intention of leaving, he asked, “What happened?”

Yi Ran was too busy watching his reaction and did not pay attention to how embarrassing the scene was. She just said, “Did you plan on hiding what you did?”

Gu Tingchuan’s hair was already wet. Seeing her frowning so hard, his heart felt funny and so he remained silent for a while. He squeezed the shampoo bottle and began washing his hair.


“Do you dare say no?!” She took a step closer to him, staring at the other person’s expression and ignoring the parts that should be ignored.

Gu Tingchuan rubbed the shampoo over his black hair. The white foam gathered just above his eyebrows, making him look gentle and harmless and completely without his usual cold indifference. He cleared his throat and said, “Then what do you want me to say?”

“Why did you hide that fact that you met with Yi Jinting? Why didn’t you say anything to me?”

So it was regard this matter. If she hadn’t mentioned it, he would have completely forgotten about it.

Gu Tingchuan washed out the foam on his head and his black hair clung wetly to the sides of his head. He looked down at her with a softer expression than usual and his eyes no longer looked so sharp. He had already guessed what was on her mind. He said, “It’s not an important matter so I didn’t think to mention it to you.”

He frowned and added, “Your cousin’s company had encountered some troubles and needed some funding. They knew my family and I had a good relationship with the bank and wanted me to come forward to introduce them.”

“But I still felt uncomfortable.” Yi Ran pursed her lips tightly and involuntarily twisted her fingers. “I know that friends and relatives should receive favors and that family ought to help each other, just like Xiang Dongsheng had initially helped introduce me to my current job. But…you’re not this kind of person. You dislike people using these types of sentimentalities on you just to gain face.”

Gu Tingchuan saw that her eyebrows were furrowed and so he took her words seriously. He rinsed the hair conditioner out of his hair. As he stood under the hot water, he looked at her with heated eyes, making him look tempting and irresistible.

“You’ve stood there long enough.”

“…… ah?”

Before Yi Ran could react, Gu Tingchuan suddenly reached out to wrap his fingers around her hand. He leaned over and whispered lightly into Mrs. Gu’s ears, “Be good. Don’t make a sound.”

After hearing this sentence in his low, magnetic voice, even a girl with a bad temper can instantly become as obedient as a sheep.

He directly pulled her into the shower. Her clothes immediately became drenched. She squealed, then laughed uncontrollably. She turned around and tried to escape but was strongly restrained by the man and could not move at all.

Behind her was the cold tiles and in front of her was nothing but hot skin.

Yi Ran found that there was no way out.

The thin T-shirt on her body became completely wet and stuck to her skin uncomfortably. The man in front of her looked down very patiently as he blocked her in with his hands on both sides of the wall, completely enclosing her within his sphere of influence.

“I didn’t tell you about this because I thought they had already spoken with you. But, it wasn’t a big deal.”

“No one told me at all. It was only after dinner today that my dad mentioned it to me.”

She spoke with a little bit of grievance. She didn’t understand why they went looking for her husband but left her completely in the dark.

Did they think that she didn’t understand the operations and strategies of commerce? Or, did they think that she had no right to influence Gu Tingchuan at all?

It really made no sense to her.

Gu Tingchuan lowered his head and buried his face in her neck. He wrapped his arms around her waist, noting that the texture underneath the clothes was silky and alluring. He said quietly, “You don’t have to worry about these matters. It was only because they did something wrong. If I knew at first that they were like this, I wouldn’t have helped them.”

Xixi: This shower scene is so cute! I was hoping to get two chapters in today in order to wrap up this scene but had to do some last minute Christmas shopping. My bank account…(ಥ﹏ಥ)
