Ex-Girlfriend – Chapter 65

Amusing Ourselves to Death Arc

Agent 02

Xin Lan looked at the face in such close proximity, Shen Yun indeed had the capital of redness, and this face was delicate and charming.

At the beginning of her debut, she was defined as having a sweet route, playing the lively and cute supporting female roles. Shen Yun was not content with always playing supporting characters. She pleaded with the original owner to give her a leading role. The original owner had no choice but to put in a lot of effort and found her a leading role.

However, at that time, Shen Yun’s acting skills were not up to par. She couldn’t grasp the character well. The original owner spent a lot of money to hire a teacher to polish Shen Yun’s acting skills, and also spent time gradually accompanying Shen Yun to improve. This led to a better performance in her role in that drama.

It can be said that Shen Yun’s success is inseparable from the original owner. However, the original owner didn’t expect that despite giving her all, the eventual outcome would be so tragic.

“Why are you looking at me like that?”

Shen Yun felt a bit flustered under Xin Lan’s direct gaze, and managed to force out a smile.

“Don’t you have something you want to tell me?”

“Of course, I have a lot to say to you. You have no idea how much I’ve missed you this past month!”

“You know very well that what I want to hear isn’t just that.”

Xin Lan pressed the cellphone against Shen Yun’s chest, creating some distance between the two of them.

“You’re not getting jealous, are you? Huh?”

Shen Yun poked Xin Lan’s hand and looked playfully at her, showing no signs of panic.

“The girl just now is the second female lead in our drama. I know her a bit because we’ve been working together. We finished filming today, and since we might not see each other again, she came in to have a chat. I swear, that’s really all it was!”

Shen Yun stared straight into Xin Lan’s eyes, continuing to act cute and coaxing.

“If you don’t like it, I won’t interact with her anymore. I’ll immediately delete her from my WeChat. I won’t be in the same production with her. Please don’t be angry, okay?”

Zero Nine: A woman’s mouth is full of lies, deceiving ghosts!

Xin Lan looked into Shen Yun’s eyes and found that there wasn’t a hint of guilt on her face.

She truly was a tough one; either she had been through countless battles, or she possessed extraordinary talents.

“I’m feeling a bit hungry. Can you wait for me while I go to my room to freshen up, and then we can go out to grab something to eat? Just the two of us, no one else, a secret little date.”

Shen Yun coquettishly suggested, her eyes shining brightly.

Zero Nine: Oh my god, seriously, this person has no shame!

Zero Nine exclaimed in disbelief three times. If she didn’t know what had happened, just from watching Shen Yun’s performance, she would have thought she was really saying what she claimed.

Xin Lan had no intention of exposing her. The evidence in her hand was useful, but it wasn’t the right time to reveal it.

Since Shen Yun wanted to pretend she hadn’t cheated, Xin Lan would play along with her act.

This time, Xin Lan was planning to play the game of “support and destroy.”

Pushing someone little by little, lifting them up, and when they’re full of complacency, ruthlessly letting them fall.

From Shen Yun’s eyes, she saw what she craved: fame, fortune, status, and money.

Xin Lan raised an eyebrow and lightly pushed Shen Yun away.

Only then did Shen Yun become somewhat flustered. She bit her tongue to calm herself down.

“If there’s something that’s bothering you about me, just tell me directly, okay? You know I love you the most; I can’t handle you being so indifferent towards me.”

Shen Yun’s expression appeared aggrieved as she squatted in front of Xin Lan, looking up at her.

In reality, her composure wasn’t as strong as she was trying to show. Xin Lan’s unusual demeanor made her wonder if Xin Lan had somehow found out about what had just happened in the room.

Her mind was already in turmoil, but she clung to the delusion that Xin Lan hadn’t actually discovered anything.

If Xin Lan were clearly angry or not, she could come up with a plan, but sitting there like this, her reaction was different from usual. It seemed like she was smiling, yet upon closer inspection, the smile wasn’t there. She appeared possibly upset, yet her anger wasn’t evident, sending a shiver down one’s spine.

Shen Yun’s appearance seemed on the verge of tears; the original owner would surely feel sorry for her in this state.

But Xin Lan wasn’t feeling any sympathy. If Shen Yun were to truly cry, Xin Lan might as well give her a round of applause in her heart.

The most difficult thing about matters of the heart for those involved is what? It’s because of love, because they can’t let go.

However, Xin Lan had absolutely no pity for this scoundrel. The scoundrel acted violently out of love, but Xin Lan had no love at all.

“What have you done wrong? Haven’t you thought about it seriously?”

Xin Lan’s fingertip grazed the edge of her phone, still wearing an indifferent expression.

(If you're not reading on littlepandatranslations.com, it means this has been stolen)

Xin Lan’s current demeanor filled Shen Yun with inexplicable panic.

Shen Yun vaguely felt that the person in front of her seemed different. The face was the same, but there seemed to be a change in aura.

Previous Xin Lan had a very capable and strong-willed demeanor, but ever since they started dating, Xin Lan had been gentle and affectionate toward her. However, now she couldn’t sense any warmth from Xin Lan. There was only a bone-chilling coldness, and staring at her for too long would make her feel a shiver down her spine.

“You know I’m a bit slow at understanding things. Can’t you just tell me if I’ve done something wrong? I’ll change, that’s all.”

Shen Yun’s expression pleaded as she gazed at Xin Lan, her eyes filled with love and longing.

Xin Lan felt that the money the original owner spent to hire a teacher for Shen Yun’s acting wasn’t in vain. At least now, her acting skills were quite good.

Shen Yun might be a bit slow, with all the twists and turns in her mind. If she was considered slow, then the world would indeed be lacking quite a few intelligent people.

Since she had to proceed step by step, Xin Lan didn’t intend to make Shen Yun’s mindset collapse from the start.

After all, she was now Shen Yun’s manager, and she could still influence her success or tarnish her reputation if she wanted.

“I’ve been here for 15 minutes, and you still have some time to continue.”

Xin Lan glanced at her wristwatch and said so.

“It’s not what you think. Let me explain.”

Shen Yun’s face turned pale, and she quickly began to defend herself.

“Blaming it on being drunk? Shen Yun, I’m 28 this year, not 18. We’re all adults here, don’t treat me like a fool.”

“Ah Lan, it’s not like that between us. I only have feelings for you. I had too much to drink, that’s why… it’s true! Please believe me!”

Shen Yun hastily tried to reach out and grab Xin Lan’s hand, but Xin Lan pushed her away.

The air fell into a moment of silence. Shen Yun gritted her teeth and slapped herself.

The slap was quite loud, indicating Shen Yun’s force behind it.

If it were the original owner, they might immediately be shocked and angry. One reaction would be out of concern, and the other would stem from the fact that Shen Yun was a celebrity, relying on her appearance for her livelihood – how could she treat herself like this?

“Ah Lan, it’s my fault. This time, I was in the wrong. But I really… You can hit me, scold me, do whatever you want, as long as you calm down. Just please don’t push me away.”

Shen Yun spoke cautiously, her face filled with pleading.

(If you're not reading on littlepandatranslations.com, it means this has been stolen)

“Don’t act like this, how can you go to shoots with that face? If people don’t know the situation, they might think I hit you. If you’re caught like this by someone, it could explode among the fans and the company.”

Xin Lan’s tone was cool and sarcastic, completely unaffected.

The expression on Shen Yun’s face was almost impossible to sustain. Xin Lan’s current demeanor made her feel an unsettling sense of unfamiliarity.

Clearly, in the past, whenever she cried or acted coquettishly, Xin Lan would have no choice but to give in to her, fulfilling all her requests.

She did indeed make a mistake, but she wasn’t genuinely remorseful.

It was just a casual encounter after finding someone who caught her eye. How could she possibly have any involvement with her? Did Xin Lan really have to react this way?

Xin Lan unfastened the watch on her wrist and placed it on the table.

“I came here today originally to see you, to give you a surprise. But unexpectedly, it’s you who surprised me.”

“Please… please don’t take it off, okay?”

Shen Yun bit her lip, her voice trembling.

On Xin Lan’s hand was a pair of couple’s watches, which she had given to Shen Yun when they confirmed their relationship. It was like a symbol of their commitment, and Xin Lan had never taken it off all these years. But now, she was removing it.

“Shen Yun, let’s break up.”

Before dealing with Shen Yun, Xin Lan had already decided to end their relationship.

She didn’t want any emotional entanglements with Shen Yun. Her role was that of a manager, targeting her artist who had let her down.

“Break up? I disagree!”

Shen Yun widened her eyes, tears streaming down her face. She wanted to rush to Xin Lan’s side, but Xin Lan’s gaze held her in place.

“Just because of this incident, you want to break up with me?”

“Do you think this is a small matter?”

“I was just drunk, and I barely know Chen Qing. I won’t have anything to do with her in the future, I promise. Ah Lan, please don’t be angry. Don’t scare me like this. I can’t be without you. Think about our past… Please don’t abandon me, okay?”

As Shen Yun cried, she spoke, appearing quite pitiful.

“So, you’re saying it’s fine for me to go out and have fun with anyone without getting emotionally involved?”

Xin Lan retorted, her lips slightly pursed.

Shen Yun remained silent for a while before reluctantly admitting it.

“Shen Yun, what do you take love for?”

Xin Lan scoffed, staring at the tearful woman.

“I’m not discussing with you; I’m stating the outcome.”

Xin Lan stood up and tucked her long hair behind her ear.

“Stop crying.”

As she neared the doorway, she spoke to the person behind her.

A glimmer of hope sparked in Shen Yun’s heart. Xin Lan still cared about her, after all.

“Your schedule is quite tight. The day after tomorrow, there’s a morning advertisement shoot. Present yourself in the best condition. I don’t want to see you tomorrow with swollen eyes and face. Shen Yun, I believe in your professionalism.”

Xin Lan remained calm, not displaying the demeanor of someone who had just experienced a breakup due to infidelity. She opened the door, and Shen Yun caught hold of the edge of her clothes.

Xin Lan instinctively pulled her clothes back and turned around, furrowing her brows as she looked at Shen Yun with tear-stained face.

“Is there anything else?”

“Did you plan to break up with me long before?”

Shen Yun shouted with red eyes and a trembling voice. Otherwise, how could she be so calm? She suspected that Xin Lan had been planning to break up with her for a while, and now she was using this incident as an excuse.

“Have you fallen for someone else?”

“Who is it?”

“No one. The day after tomorrow is the endorsement for Yaluo Cosmetics. If your skin condition is criticized by their director, there’s nothing I can do to help you.”

Yaluo is currently one of the better-reputed makeup brands on the market. The original owner had worked hard to secure this endorsement opportunity. However, it wasn’t a sure thing because there would be other contenders, and the final decision on the spokesperson would be made by the brand’s director.

“Don’t change the subject!”

Shen Yun didn’t want to talk about endorsements right now; her mind was consumed with the fact that Xin Lan wanted to break up with her.

“Shen Yun, I hope you can understand that you’re the one who made the mistake in this situation. I’m discussing business matters with you right now because I don’t want to talk about private affairs.”

“I’ve only made one mistake. Why won’t you forgive me? Have you forgotten that we promised to be together forever? Have you forgotten that you said you would love me always? If you truly love me, why aren’t you angry when I make a mistake? Have you actually fallen out of love with me? Did my mistake give you a reason to finally let go and get what you wanted?”

Zero Nine: What kind of drama is this?
