Chapter 10 Is this the legendary paranoid forced love disease?
Lang Zhuoyu suppressed the confusion in his heart, thinking that he might be overthinking. After all, the last time he saw Lian Yin was more than four years ago, let alone it being in high school. Lang Zhuoyu had not carefully observed what Lian Yin looked like.
Since the two were relatives, it is not surprising that they looked alike.
What’s more, one was a girl and the other was a boy.
Lang Zhuoyu felt that he might have been bewildered by Lian Yin’s annoyance.
Standing in the corridor for a while, Liu Dawei came over and told Lang Zhuoyu that the little fresh meat who was injured from the other production wanted to take a few more days off.
Lang Zhuoyu pulled away from his personal emotions and frowned dissatisfiedly: “I remember it was just some superficial injuries.”
Liu Dawei shook his head helplessly: “I guess he doesn’t want to act, our crew doesn’t pay the actors very high, how can there be TV dramas that make money?”
This series has strict cost control, because of the pursuit of quality. Most of the budget was spent on scenery and costumes. Although the actors’ remuneration was not low, it was not lavish. If not because of Lang Zhuoyu had been in the limelight in the past two years, plus Wen Ting and other leading actors having their own considerations, it is impossible to invite such big-name actors.
It is also possible that the little fresh meat wants to make quick money and can’t endure hardship in the middle.
And because he was injured, it was impossible for the crew to force him back.
Lang Zhuoyu didn’t want to cause trouble, and said, “Then let someone talk to him about the termination of the contract, so we can call someone else.”
“Okay.” Liu Dawei nodded and asked again, “I heard that your girlfriend is here?”
“Not yet.” Lang Zhuoyu said lightly.
Liu Dawei snorted: “I saw her. She’s pretty. Why did she come to the production?”
“To cause trouble.” Lang Zhuoyu turned to look at the scenery, “She forced me to establish a relationship with her, and I’ve only met her once.”
Liu Dawei was stunned: “Is this how charming you are?”
He patted Lang Zhuoyu on the shoulder and sighed in the tone of someone who is experienced: “Some women are like this, they lack a sense of security. If you don’t hate it, it’s fine to try it out.”
Lang Zhuoyu was silent for a moment, and said: “I don’t really want to be with a woman my parents introduced.”
Liu Dawei noticed that his mood was down, and it was estimated that something had happened before, but he didn’t want to say it. Liu Dawei didn’t ask questions, just patted him again and left.
Lian Yin sat in the same place and began to plan how to stage a “forced marriage drama” in front of the crew later. Before he could understand his lines, he saw Lang Zhuoyu walking back with a tired face.
Lang Zhuoyu took the coat hanging on the hanger and said to Lian Yin calmly, “Let’s go, I’ll take you back first.”
Lian Yin was a little surprised, he asked, “Don’t you have to stay here?”
Lang Zhuoyu shook his head: “I don’t have to stay here all the time, I’ll go home after I send you back.”
Okay, Lian Yin couldn’t really act out in front of the entire crew. It seems that he can only continue to cause trouble another day.
When he left behind Lang Zhuoyu, Lian Yin clearly felt that his mood was not too high and until he sent Lian Yin home, Lang Zhuoyu did not speak to Lian Yin.
When he got off the car, he couldn’t hold back. He glanced at the driver’s seat and found that Lang Zhuoyu was not in the mood to say goodbye to himself.
He pursed his lips and silently closed the door and got out of the car.
Then Lang Zhuoyu immediately drove the car away without any pause, as if he didn’t want to stay here for an extra second.
Lian Yin was still standing on the street where he got off the car, watching Lang Zhuoyu leave the car without any reluctance. A feeling of sourness surged in his heart for some unknown reason.
Does this mean that Lang Zhuoyu really wanted to open up and kick himself out?
Does it mean that his task had been completed?
But why can’t he be happy, it felt like something was missing from his heart.
Lian Yin stood on the side of the street in a trance, and after a few minutes, he came to his senses and patted his face in disdain.
Lian Yin, why are you unhappy! You got rid of Lang Zhuoyu! You are done! You will get 3,000 yuan in no time. This is a happy event. Be happy!
After comforting himself, Lian Yin felt much better. He straightened his back and strode home.
This afternoon, Lian Yin had some classes, but he couldn’t listen to them very much.
He poked at the notebook with a pen… He was still thinking about Lang Zhuoyu.
It had been already a week since he was sent back to the studio after he made trouble last time. Lang Zhuoyu had not contacted himself and Lian Yin was too embarrassed to contact him.
On the other hand, when Tong Tong came to ask how the progress was, Lian Yin reported the measures he had taken to her one by one. Tong Tong was very pleased and praised Lian Yin for doing well, judging with certainty what Lang Zhuoyu’s actions meant. His attitude had become clear.
However, in order to ensure her parents’ belief, Tong Tong proposed that Lian Yin should save Lang Zhuoyu’s “Goodbye Declaration” in the form of screenshots of chat records. As long as there were these screenshots confirming Lang Zhuoyu’s attitude, Tong Tong will pay him his wages.
Lian Yin responded with mixed feelings in his heart.
He was not stupid. Tong Tong hoping to have evidence such as screenshots to explain it to her parents and the introducer was simply to prevent himself from lying in order to get the money as soon as possible.
So Lian Yin had must confirm with Lang Zhuoyu what his attitude was.
But after so many days, Lian Yin didn’t confirm it because as long as he thought of Lang Zhuoyu’s impatient appearance of rejecting him, he felt uncomfortable.
This escape was for almost a week.
When the bell rang for the end of class, Lian Yin sighed and packed up and left the classroom. He decided to go to Lang Zhuoyu tonight to make it clear and quickly get over the matter.
He walked out of the west school gate with a heavy heart, not noticing a sneaky figure hidden in the crowd.
Seeing Lian Yin coming out of school, Zhou Xu quickly lowered his head, covered his face with the brim of a cap, and then hid in the crowd.
Quietly following Lian Yin, he turned a corner and came to a shady corridor outside the school walls.
Zhou Xu also noticed that Lian Yin was absent-minded, seized the opportunity and hugged Lian Yin from behind.
“Who!” Lian Yin shouted in a panic, struggling with all his strength.
But Zhou Xu held him tightly and Lian Yin couldn’t break free at all.
“Zhou Xu!” Lian Yin had already recognized the person and yelled, “You lunatic!”
“Xiao Yin, Xiao Yin, don’t move!” Zhou Xu shouted frantically.
“Only if I’m stupid. You let me go!” Lian Yin ordered while struggling.
Zhou Xu’s eyes were red. He hugged Lian Yin tightly and asked, “Why don’t you give me another chance! Why!”
“You psycho.” Lian Yin cursed, then his brain worked quick. “I have a f*cking boyfriend, get out of here.”
Zhou Xu was full of disbelief, gritted his teeth and said, “I don’t believe it!”
Lian Yin calmed himself down and said to Zhou Xu in a soft tone: “I really have a boyfriend, if you don’t believe me, I’ll show it to you.”
“You let me go, and I’ll prove it to you.” Lian Yin followed suit.
Zhou Xu slowly released him. Lian Yin did not dare to act rashly. He took out his mobile phone from his bag, and called Lang Zhuoyu directly.
“Are you calling your boyfriend?” Zhou Xu’s eyes flashed with anger, and he still couldn’t believe it.
“En, I’ll ask him to talk to you, make it clear that you shouldn’t bother me anymore.” Lian Yin pretended to be calm, but in fact he didn’t know what to do. Calling Lang Zhuoyu was more for help.
It wasn’t that he didn’t think about calling the police at that moment, but Zhou Xu was likely to be provoked because of this and Lian Yin was frightened by Zhou Xu’s madness. He was afraid that Zhou Xu would rob him of his mobile phone.
Lang Zhuoyu was actually the first person he thought of asking for help at that moment.
“Hello?” The call was quickly connected. Lang Zhuoyu’s voice came from the receiver, and Lian Yin hesitated for a moment whether to keep his pseudo-voice to talk to him.
But at the moment of hesitation, the phone was snatched by Zhou Xu.
Lian Yin’s strength was not comparable to Zhou Xu. Zhou Xu was a big man, a strong northern man. Lian Yin was tall, but thin and the two were not the same weight class.
“Who are you to him!” Zhou Xu yelled at the phone with red eyes.
After a moment of silence, Lang Zhuoyu asked in confusion, “Who are you, the owner of this number?”
“I’m asking you who the h*ll you are to the person of this number! Are you his (this pronoun sounds the same as her) boyfriend!” Zhou Xu roared.
“…I’m not, sir, you’re looking for the wrong person.” Lang Zhuoyu’s voice oozed a bit of impatience.
Lian Yin’s heart froze. Lang Zhuoyu probably didn’t realize that he was being restrained by another, so he couldn’t help himself.
Lian Yin panicked and heard Zhou Xu roaring into the phone again: “D*mn it! Since you are not his boyfriend, then I warn you to stay away from him!”
After scolding Lang Zhuoyu, Zhou Xu was quite disdainful. He said to Lian Yin, “You just found this kind of thing, that won’t even admit to being your boyfriend?”
Zhou Xu hung up the phone quickly while talking, then naturally put Lian Yin’s phone in his pocket.
Lian Yin courageously reached out to Zhou Xu: “Give me back the phone, even if you want to talk to me, please do it another day, I have something to do today.”
“What’s the matter!” Zhou Xu said angrily, “Going to the bar to sell your time? Don’t go! I’m going to talk to you today!”
After that, Zhou Xu grabbed Lian Yin’s hand. His hand was very strong and he did not spare any effort. He dragged Lian Yin to the side of the car, opened the door, and tucked the person into the back seat.
With a bang, the car door closed. Zhou Xu himself sat in, and immediately ordered the driver to drive.
Lian Yin never thought that this young man came to kidnap someone and even brought a driver.
The vehicle drove to the suburbs at the maximum speed limit. Lian Yin could no longer restrain the panic in his heart and asked Zhou Xu in a trembling voice: “Where are you taking me?”
Zhou Xu said with a gloomy face, “To my house.”
“I’m not going, you let me down.” Lian Yin said.
Zhou Xu suddenly turned his face, glared at Lian Yin fiercely, gritted his teeth and said, “I have never begged someone in such a low voice in my life, you are the first, you better behave.”
Lian Yin unconsciously trembled, he was startled.
Then Zhou Xu said softly: “Just go to my house and sit for a while. We’ll talk things over, then you can go wherever you want.”
The car roared to the suburbs dozens of kilometers away from the city.
