Chapter 28: Her Heartbeat Was Loud And She Was Full Of Smiles


TL: Resonance

    而奚墨这一垂眸低头,阮夜笙立刻又水到渠成地接上了奚墨的戏。

And with Xi Mo lowering her head, Ruan Yesheng immediately followed up smoothly towards Xi Mo’s acting.

    她看了奚墨几秒,转而怔怔看向怀里死去的“父亲尸体”。这过程虽短暂,却痛楚得如同生生撕扯皮肉,她的表情也在这一个转折过程中,由悲愤渐渐地过渡到了灰白的绝望。

She looked at Xi Mo for a few seconds, then stared blankly at the dead “father’s corpse” in her arms. Although this process is short, it was as painful as the tearing of flesh and skin. During this turning point, her expression also gradually transitioned from grief to despair.

    邓训死了。

Deng Xun is dead.

    对于邓绥来说,今晚这一切及至以后的很多事,都结束了。

To Deng Sui, everything tonight and many things in the future are over.

    很多影视作品里一旦什么角色“逝去”,就会有扮演这人亲人朋友的角色在旁边抱着尸体,负责一边大哭一边大叫“逝者”的名字,还一定要使劲地摇着“逝者”的身体,坚决是一副不把对方骨架子摇散誓不罢休的模样。也许人还没死透,真被这样摇晃也合该断气了,也不知道是谁规定的。

In many film and television works, once a character “passes away”, there will be a person playing as the character’s relative or friend, holding the corpse and responsible for crying and yelling the name of the “deceased”. They must also shake the body of the “deceased” vigorously, resolutely doing so like they wouldn’t stop until the “corpse’s” bones fall apart. The person might not have truly died yet, but probably would die after being shaken like this. Who knows who set these practices?

    好在林启堂说戏的时候没有如此要求,剧本里也没有明确的限制,阮夜笙完全可以按照她对角色的理解来做出反应。

Fortunately, Lin Qitang didn’t ask for that when explaining the script, and there were no clear restrictions in the script. Ruan Yesheng can react according to her understanding of the role.

    邓绥早期虽然是聪慧烂漫,性格偏温柔,却并不意味着她软弱,相反她的骨子里顽强得很,这也是她日后临朝听政的基础之一。眼下看邓训浑身是血,死状惨烈,邓绥明白已经是无力回天,这一剑不光是断送了父亲邓训的性命,与此同时也将邓绥那原本少女气息的皮囊撕扯了个血肉模糊,她在此刻的血泊中蜕变,丧父的悲痛纵然盈满周身,却依然倔强地将这股子痛竭力压在骨血里。

Although Deng Sui was intelligent and had a gentle personality in the early days, it did not mean that she was weak. On the contrary, she is very tenacious deep down. This is also one of the reasons why she was able to stand in the imperial court and partake in government affairs. Seeing that Deng Xun was covered in blood and had died tragically, Deng Sui understood that things can no longer return to that of the past. This sword had not only taken the life of her father Deng Xun but had also torn her skin as a young girl into a bloody mess. She is currently changing amidst this bloody mess. Even though the grief of losing her father envelops her whole body, she stubbornly still did her best to suppress this pain within her body.

    她的父亲是被人杀死的。

Her father was killed by someone.

    她不可以软弱,只为有朝一日能手刃仇人。

She must not be weak, for the sake of being able to kill her enemies one day.

    阮夜笙的情绪被调动得越来越到位,眼眶通红,头越来越低,泪花盛在眼中模糊了长睫,却仍旧不愿落下。

Ruan Yesheng’s emotion was becoming more and more on point. Her eyes were red and her head went lower and lower. Tears filled her eyes and blurred the long eyelashes, but they were still unwilling to fall.

    真正的悲伤不需要点上眼药水大声哭嚎,因为真正伤到的时候,已经没有力气去做那些流于表面的呐喊了。

Real grief doesn’t need one to put on eye drops and cry loudly. Because when one was really hurt, they wouldn’t have the strength to make those superficial shouts.

    阮夜笙全程没有说一个字,垂着脑袋,发饰都散了,双肩耸动,镜头特写出她额头隐隐浮起的青筋,领口在之前的惊慌失措下也早已拉开些许,能看到她因为竭力忍住哭泣而绷紧到抽搐的颈间肌韧。她在这种低头中一手抱住“尸体”,另外一只手哆哆嗦嗦地伸出去,寻求救命稻草似地攥住了奚墨的袖口,抓得紧紧的。

Ruan Yesheng didn’t say a single word throughout the process. Her head was just lowered with her hair accessories scattered and her shoulders were trembling. The close-up shot showed the faintly bulging veins on her forehead. Her collar has already been pulled down slightly due to her panic before, and her neck muscles which are twitching due to her trying her best to hold back her tears could be seen. With her lowered head, she hugged the “corpse” with one hand while her other hand stretched out tremblingly like it was looking for its last hope and grasped onto Xi Mo’s sleeve tightly.

    父亲没有了。

Her father is gone.

    她觉得她还有定厄。

She feels that she still has Ding E.

    这场哭戏太过重要,林启堂事先就已经说过戏,这个时候,定厄看到邓绥还是像小时候那样遇到伤心事就习惯地攥她的衣袖,便会像年少时那样去抱邓绥。

This crying scene is too important, Lin Qitang has already talked about the scene beforehand. At this time, Ding E saw that Deng Sui was still like how she was when she was young, holding her sleeve whenever she felt sad. Then, Ding E would hug Deng Sui like how she always does when they were young.

    然而奚墨并没有动。

However, Xi Mo did not move.

    她演了这么多年的戏,本身的哭戏也好,与有哭戏的演员演对手戏也好,都是信手拈来的,现在她却做不到了。

She has been acting for so many years. Whether it’s her own crying scenes or acting with actors who have crying scenes, it all came easily at her fingertips. But now, she couldn’t do it.

    她惊讶地发现,她突然添了一件害怕的事。

She was surprised to find that she suddenly added something she was scared of to her list.

    她发现自己害怕阮夜笙哭。

She found that she was afraid of Ruan Yesheng crying.

    以前在各种作品里看到阮夜笙的哭泣,或许是隔着冰冷的屏幕,对她而言并不算什么,高傲如她,她自认可以哭得更好。而此刻她是第一次在现场近距离地看到阮夜笙哭,她挨她挨得那么近,打光的灯照在她和阮夜笙的脸上,她能清楚地看到阮夜笙眼中欲坠未坠的眼泪,能看到她因为痛苦而轻颤的身体,她散乱的发丝和头饰,还有她攥过来的手指温度,全都在那么真实地诠释她的哭泣。

She had seen Ruan Yesheng crying in various works before. It meant nothing to her, perhaps due to the fact that it was behind a cold screen. The arrogant her thinks that she can cry better. At this moment, it was the first time that she saw Ruan Yesheng crying at close range. She was so close to her. With the light shining on both her and Ruan Yesheng’s face, she could clearly see the tears in Ruan Yesheng’s eyes that were about to fall yet not falling. She could see her body that was trembling from her pain, her scattered hair and hair accessories, and the temperature of her fingers which was grabbing onto her. All of them were so clearly expressing her cry.

    阮夜笙是个真正的妖精。

Ruan Yesheng really is a siren.

    她一哭,别人就真的发自内心地想去哄她。

When she cried, others would really want to comfort her from the bottom of their hearts.

    也就是在那么一刹那,奚墨觉得心底有了那么点手足无措的感觉。她不喜欢阮夜笙哭,更害怕阮夜笙哭,因为她并不知道该如何哄她才能让她停止哭泣,也就是这样短暂的一个犹豫,并没有让奚墨立刻按照剧本发展的要求去做。

And for that very instant, Xi Mo felt a little at a loss from the bottom of her heart. She doesn’t like Ruan Yesheng crying, and she’s even more afraid of Ruan Yesheng crying, for she doesn’t know how to coax her to stop her from crying. It was just such a short hesitation which caused Xi Mo to not immediately act according to the development requirements of the script.

    那边林启堂却快急死了。

Lin Qitang was dying of anxiety over there.

    眼下这么好的气氛,这场压抑的哭戏也堪称完美,要知道对演员而言酝酿一个哭的情绪是多么难,如果他这时候喊咔,之前的一切都可能付诸东流,太浪费了,喊咔补拍的话,奚墨和阮夜笙也不一定能回到之前那么好的状态。

The current atmosphere is so good and this suppressed crying scene can also be considered perfect. It should be known how difficult it is for an actor to build up their crying emotion. If he shouts cut at this time, everything before may end up in vain, which is too wasteful. If he shouts cut and re-record this part again, Xi Mo and Ruan Yesheng may not be able to return to their previous great state.

    好在林启堂也不是吃素的,当场就揪着身边一个助理往阮夜笙和奚墨的对面空地跑,只留下了副导演在那盯着监视器。

Thankfully, Lin Qitang is not to be belittled. He immediately grabbed an assistant next to him and ran to the open space opposite Ruan Yesheng and Xi Mo, leaving behind the assistant director to stare at the monitor.

    助理一时有点懵,踉踉跄跄地被林启堂拖到了一处合适位置。

The assistant was momentarily confused and staggered along as Lin Qitang pulled him to a suitable location.

    林启堂没喊咔,奚墨自然表现得还在戏中,只是没有立刻进行下一个举动而已,不过她的余光瞄到了林启堂和导演助理。多年的拍戏经验让奚墨轻松地明白了林启堂的意图,导演没说咔,那就别停,她也就只是保持余光瞟过去,并没有停止拍戏。

Lin Qitang didn’t shout out “cut”, so Xi Mo was naturally still acting her part. It’s just that she did not immediately make the next move. However, she caught sight of Lin Qitang and the director’s assistant from the corner of her eyes. Years of filming experience made it easy for Xi Mo to understand Lin Qitang’s intentions. Since the director did not ask to cut, then do not stop acting. She only looked at him from the corner of her eyes but did not stop acting.

    导演助理被林启堂一把按倒在地,跟着下一刻,林启堂一把抱住了助理。

The assistant was pushed down to the ground by Lin Qitang, and the next moment, Lin Qitang hugged the assistant.

    助理彻底懵了:“?”

The assistant was thoroughly bewildered: “?”

    奚墨:“……”

Xi Mo: “…”

    林启堂只是看着他的助理,低声说了句戏里台词:“……小姐,不哭。”

Lin Qitang just looked at his assistant and whispered a line from the script: “… Miss, don’t cry.”

    助理更懵了:“??”

The assistant became even more bewildered: “??”

    奚墨:“……”

Xi Mo: “…”

    这场戏并不是现场收音,即使现在林启堂说话也没有关系,毕竟到时候都是消音状态,再进行配音配乐加音效后期,只要画面演到位即可。现在有的导演遇到重要的戏,就会一边在旁边说戏,演员一边配合拍摄,甚至有的演员功底不好,台词忘记了,还有演员的助理在旁边提示台词,虽然方便了拍摄,却大大降低了部分演员的台词功底,台词说得再烂,也还有配音顶着,如今娱乐圈里能直接现场收音的演员也所剩不多了。

They were not live recording the sound, so it was fine even if Lin Qitang talks. After all, the sound of the recording will be muted and dubbing, background music and sound effects would be added in during post production. All they needed was for the acting to be in place. Nowadays, when some directors encounter important scenes, they will talk about the scenes next to the actors while the actors act. There were even actors who have poor skills and forget their lines. Their assistant would be at the side reminding them of their lines. Although it is convenient for filming, it greatly reduced the skills of some actors in remembering lines. No matter how badly they have said their lines, they could still rely on dubbing. Nowadays, there are not many actors in the entertainment circle whose live recording can directly be used.

    为了拿下这场戏,不浪费几位演员那么好的表现,林启堂身体力行地开始说戏。

In order to clear this scene without wasting the good acting of the few actors, Lin Qitang began to talk about the scene personally.

    林启堂一边抱着助理,把自己当定厄,把助理当邓绥,一边对奚墨说:“阮夜笙,记得我之前怎么跟你说的,这个时候亲眼目睹父亲死亡的邓绥是非常脆弱的,她很需要定厄,所以当奚墨抓着你手寻求安慰的时候,你犹豫一会,然后就要抱住奚墨!”

Lin Qitang regarded himself as Ding E and regarded his assistant as Deng Sui. While hugging his assistant, he said to Xi Mo, “Ruan Yesheng, remember what I told you before? Deng Sui, who witnessed her father’s death at this time, is very fragile and needs Ding E very much. So when Xi Mo grabs your hand for comfort, you hesitate for a while before hugging Xi Mo!”

    这抱住两字让奚墨打个哆嗦。

The word hug made Xi Mo shiver.

    阮夜笙这个角度是背对着林启堂,看不到林启堂的举动,却能听到林启堂的说话声,不过她也依然保持着还在戏中的姿态,演邓训尸体的老戏骨胸口插剑,更是一如既往的敬业。

Ruan Yesheng has her back facing Lin Qitang from this angle. She can’t see Lin Qitang’s movements, but she can hear Lin Qitang’s voice. However, she continued maintaining her acting posture. The senior actor acting as Deng Xun’s corpse with a sword in his chest is also as dedicated as ever.

    “先是伸出手,慢慢地抱。”林启堂一边说,一边轻轻将助理抱住了,以作示范。这助理是个虎背熊腰的纯爷们,真汉子,这下子顿时像小鸟依了人似的,半晌不敢动弹。

“First, stretch out your hand and slowly hug her.” Lin Qitang said as he gently hugged the assistant as a demonstration. This assistant is a sturdy man with a wide back. A true man. However, he now looked like a little bird and didn’t dare make a move.

    助理:“……”

Assistant: “…”

    林启堂面朝奚墨道:“阮夜笙你现在演的定厄这时候心里很复杂,刚杀了邓训,看见邓绥这心里必然起伏剧烈,面上又不能表现出来。过程不要太快,你就这么缓缓伸手,然后再紧紧抱住奚墨她!表现从小到大一起成长的主仆之间的那种羁绊!”

Lin Qitang faced Xi Mo and said, “Ruan Yesheng, your current role as Ding E is feeling very complicated in her heart at this time. She has just killed Deng Xun. Seeing Deng Sui now, her heart will surely be in turmoil. However, she can’t show it on her face. It shouldn’t be done too quickly. Just stretch out your hand slowly, and then hug Xi Mo tightly! Show the kind of bond[1] between the master and servant who grew up together!

    奚墨:“……”

Xi Mo: “…”

    你还懂什么叫羁绊呢!

You even know what ‘bond’ is!

    林启堂你这么爱演,要不你自己来演吧!

Lin Qitang, you love acting so much. Why not come and act yourself!

    还能一人分饰两角!

You can even act for two roles!

    在片场边上看戏的冯唐唐一听林启堂那么喊,也有点糊涂,怎么就羁绊了?难道不是男主角和女主角,汉和帝刘肇和邓绥彼此之间有深深的感情羁绊,原来女主和女配也有什么主仆羁绊,在冯唐唐简单堪比金鱼脑的脑子看来,这部古装宫廷大剧的羁绊也是有点多的。

Feng Tangtang, who was watching the scene on the side of the set, was a little confused when she heard Lin Qitang’s shout. How is this a ‘bond’ already? Isn’t it the male lead, Emperor He of Han, Liu Zhao, and the female lead, Deng Sui, who have a deep emotional ‘bond’ with each other? It turns out that the female lead and the female supporting character also have some master and servant ‘bond’. In Feng Tangtang’s mind, which is as simple as a goldfish’s brain, the ‘bonds’ in this ancient palace drama seem to be a bit too much.

    她跟旁边的顾栖松一说,顾栖松木木地道:“什么是羁绊?”

When she told Gu Qisong who was beside her, Gu Qisong replied woodenly, “What is a ‘bond’?”

    冯唐唐:“……”

Feng Tangtang: “…”

    算她没说。

Count it as she didn’t say anything

    不过经林启堂一提醒,奚墨的确清醒了过来,刚才那种陌生的不适也暂时被她甩去脑后。之前那一小段可以被后期剪辑剪掉,她还身在戏中,只要之后继续保持状态,对她而言,此刻也不晚。

But with Lin Qitang reminding her, Xi Mo indeed came to her senses. The unfamiliar discomfort just now was temporarily forgotten by her. The short section before can be cut out during post production. She is still acting in the scene. As long as she continues remaining in this acting state, this situation is still not too late for her to redeem.

    揣摩着定厄此时应有的反应,奚墨手指微微抖了几下,她的手上都是人造血浆,有台机位特写了她的肢体表现,跟着她终于抬起手,扣住了阮夜笙攥她衣袖的手指,阮夜笙配合着肩膀耸动得更厉害了,奚墨终于揽住阮夜笙,头靠了过去。

Trying to figure out how Ding E should react at this time, Xi Mo’s fingers trembled slightly. Her hands are full of fake blood, and a camera was taking a close up of her body’s actions. Then she finally raised her hand and held Ruan Yesheng’s fingers which were holding her sleeves. Ruan Yesheng cooperated and made her shoulders tremble even more. Xi Mo finally held Ruan Yesheng and leaned her head over.

    定厄抱住了邓绥。

Ding E hugged Deng Sui.

    她也轻轻抱住了阮夜笙。

And she has also hugged Ruan Yesheng gently.

    这一抱,她忽略了自己的心跳,却好像又跳进了另外一个世界。在这个世界里,她能感觉到阮夜笙的灼热呼吸,还有阮夜笙的心脏跃动,那么贴近,而她也不知道因为什么,阮夜笙的心跳竟然会变得那么快,一下一下贴着肌肤撞过来似的,快得让她觉得一丝莫名的尴尬,比和别人演任何对手戏都尴尬,后背甚至都开始有了汗。

Through this hug, she has forgotten her own heartbeat, but seemed to have jumped into another world. In this world, she can feel Ruan Yesheng’s hot breaths and Ruan Yesheng’s heart beating which were so close. And she didn’t know why Ruan Yesheng’s heartbeat would become so fast. They seemed to be hitting her through the skin, so fast that she felt inexplicably embarrassed, much more so than with any other actors she has acted with. Her back was even starting to sweat.

    即使如此,戏依然要继续。

Even so, the filming still has to continue.

    “小姐。”奚墨化身定厄,轻轻呢喃。

“Miss.” Xi Mo turned to Ding E and whispered softly.

    她的手放在了阮夜笙的背上,轻轻拍打:“不哭。”

She put her hand on Ruan Yesheng’s back and patted gently as she said, “Don’t cry.”

    仿佛之前积攒的情绪此刻决堤,邓绥的悲痛也终于可以被暂时安放了,阮夜笙那双泪眼随之一垂,睫毛颤了颤,泪珠滚落了下来。

As if all the accumulated emotion from before have burst off at this moment, Deng Sui’s grief can finally be expressed temporarily. Drooping her pair of tearing eyes, Ruan Yesheng’s eyelashes trembled and tears started falling down.

    她抱着老戏骨的“尸体”,靠着奚墨,哑着嗓子像个小女孩似地哭出了声来,刹都刹不住车。

Holding the senior actor’s “corpse”, Ruan Yesheng leaned on Xi Mo and cried out with a hoarse voice like a little girl. Nothing could stop her tears.

    “林导,林导。”那五大三粗的助理却还被林启堂抱着,尴尬道:“这都示范完了,您……您把我先放开呗?”

“Director Lin, Director Lin.” The sturdy assistant was still being held by Lin Qitang, so he asked awkwardly, “The demonstration is already done, could… could you please let me go?”

    林启堂看他一眼,一脸我一代大导让你配合说戏是你等小民的造化,把助理放开了,从容镇定地回到监视器那边看刚才拍的那幕怎么样。

Lin Qitang gave him a glance with a ‘a big director like me getting a commoner like you to act with me is your fortune’ look before letting the assistant go. He then calmly returned to the monitor to see how the scene just now went.

    这场夜戏最终完满完成,林启堂激动地大声道:“咔,非常好!大家先休息一下,化妆师过去补妆!”

This night scene was finally completed successfully. Lin Qitang exclaimed excitedly: “Cut. Very good! Let’s take a break first. Makeup artists, go touch up the makeup! “

    冯唐唐卖力地鼓起掌来,其他工作人员松了一口气,也都笑起来。

Feng Tangtang clapped vigorously. The other staff members were relieved and all laughed too.

    老戏骨一听终于咔了,顿时弹了起来,奚墨和阮夜笙知道他是这个圈子的泰斗,很尊重他,跟他说声李老师辛苦了,老戏骨点点头,同她们俩说了几句话,大多是赞赏的意味,跟着被工作人员接到一旁休息。

Finally hearing the ‘cut’, the senior actor immediately sat up. Xi Mo and Ruan Yesheng know that he is a respectable individual in this circle and respect him very much. They both said that teacher Li had worked hard, to which the senior actor nodded his head. He also said a few words to the two of them, most of it praising the two of them. Then, he was guided by a staff to rest at one side.

    先前阮夜笙听林启堂在那说戏,她心里简直快笑死了,不过她就是有这种精分的本事,心里想笑,演技却是实打实的,泪珠不带一点假,眼下见这条戏一过,她一下就放松了,眼里还带着泪,噗嗤一声笑出来,可见她是个敬业的演员,笑场都能留到拍戏后。

When Ruan Yesheng heard Lin Qitang talking behind her earlier, she almost laughed out loud. However, she had the ability to control herself. Although she wanted to laugh, her acting skills were solid enough to hold her back and her tears did not contain any sense of fakeness. Seeing that this scene has passed, she immediately relaxed. With tears still in her eyes, she laughed out loud. It can be seen that she is a dedicated actor, for her laughter could be kept until after the filming.

    阮夜笙直接笑倒在了奚墨身上。

Ruan Yesheng laughed and fell directly on Xi Mo.

    奚墨原本就抱着她,这下子皱了眉:“现在才笑,你反射弧这么长?”

Xi Mo was originally hugging her in the first place. She frowned and asked, “You’re laughing only now. Does it take so long for you to react?”

    阮夜笙歪在她怀里,冲她眨眨眼,轻声说:“刚才抱了这么久,不在乎再多一会吧?我这还没缓过来呢。”

Ruan Yesheng leaned in her arms and blinked at her. She said softly: “We have hugged for so long earlier. You won’t mind hugging for a little longer right? I still haven’t gotten over it yet.”

    奚墨没有反驳,也并没有松开她,只是嫌弃说:“你赶紧把眼泪擦擦。”

Xi Mo didn’t refute nor did she let go of her. She just said with disgust, “Hurry up and wipe away your tears.”

    阮夜笙下意识抬手擦了擦自己的眼睛,眼角还是红的,笑意却更娇媚了:“哎,真是,哭得我妆都花了。”

Ruan Yesheng subconsciously raised her hand and wiped her eyes. The corners of her eyes were still red, but her smile became even more coquettish. “Hey, really, I cried so much that my makeup is all ruined.”

    奚墨看她这哭戏前后的反差,顿时感觉自己刚才那种害怕她哭甚至还有点想哄她的心情直接被拿去剁碎喂了狗。

Seeing the difference of Ruan Yesheng before and after the crying scene, Xi Mo suddenly felt that her feelings just now of ‘scared of her crying and even felt like comforting her a little’ had been minced and fed to dogs.

    “奚姐,我来给你补个妆。”待会还有戏要接着拍,化妆师一路上小跑着过来了。

“Sister Xi, I’ll help you touch up your makeup.” There is still a scene to be filmed later, so the makeup artist trotted over.

    眼见来了人,阮夜笙也不好意思当着化妆师的面卖俏,她现在可是扮着别人,顿时就又端起了冰脸子,从奚墨怀里直起了腰身,再慢慢站起来,不咸不淡说:“好,我们过去那边。”

Seeing someone come over, Ruan Yesheng felt embarrassed to act coquettish in front of the makeup artist for she is pretending to be someone else right now. She immediately put on an ice cold expression and straightened up from Xi Mo’s arms. Then, she slowly got up and said indifferently, “Okay, let’s go over there.”

    奚墨眼看着阮夜笙在自己面前一秒切换,觉得她简直精分。

Xi Mo watched as Ruan Yesheng changed demeanour before her within a second and felt that Ruan Yesheng simply had a split personality.

    阮夜笙走开了,奚墨自己依然挂着冰脸子在那坐着,冯唐唐跑过去亲昵问她阮阮要不要喝水,奚墨刚想用自己原本高岭之花的冷艳瞪她一眼,一想到自己也得扮别人,转过去的瞬间就又温柔笑开了,娇宛似花地接了矿泉水瓶:“糖糖,我刚好渴了,谢谢你啊。”

After Ruan Yesheng walked away, Xi Mo was still sitting there with a cold face. Feng Tangtang ran over and asked intimately if Ruan Ruan would like to drink water. Xi Mo had wanted to glare at her with her original cold demeanour, but as she remembered that she was acting as someone else, a warm smile formed on her face the moment she turned her face around. She received the bottle of mineral water delicately like a flower and said, “Tangtang, I just happened to be thirsty. Thank you.”

    她也自然而然地精分了。

She also had a split personality naturally.

    今天邓府的夜戏结束在十一点左右,留下一些工作人员整理场地,其他人拖着疲惫的身体回酒店休息。

Today’s night scene in Deng’s mansion ended at about eleven o’clock. Some staff stayed behind to tidy up the place, while the rest dragged their tired body back to the hotel to rest.

    阮夜笙和奚墨住同一个酒店,回去的时候顺便也同坐一辆车,她其实心底是想和奚墨说点什么,碍于同车还有路清明和顾栖松,也就没怎么吭声。偶尔阮夜笙会拿眼风瞟过去,多半看到奚墨把自己那张脸顶了个大写的旁人勿近,车上非常安静,加上路清明又坐到前面去了,奚墨并未再演戏。

Ruan Yesheng and Xi Mo stayed in the same hotel, so they rode in the same car back. She actually wanted to say something to Xi Mo, but because there were Lu Qingming and Gu Qisong in the same car, she didn’t say much. Ruan Yesheng would glance over occasionally. Most of the time, she saw Xi Mo using her face to wear the large words ‘do not approach’. It was very quiet in the car, and Lu Qingming sat in front again, so Xi Mo did not act any more.

    也许她真的累了,在这种疲累中显露了她真正的自己,按照她自傲的性格,除去拍戏,每天都要在别人面前扮演另外一个人,的确是为难她。

Maybe she is really tired, and she revealed her true self because of that. With her arrogant personality, it’s indeed troubling for her having to act as someone else when they were not acting for the sake of filming.

    阮夜笙看了她一会,发现她脑袋垂了下去,身体却还是十分端庄地靠在后座上,以一种倔强的高难度姿势睡着了。

Ruan Yesheng looked at her for a while and found that even though her head was hanging down, her body was still dignifiedly leaning on the back seat, falling asleep in a unbending and difficult posture.

    车里空调温度有点低,阮夜笙从后面摸出一条薄毯子,轻轻盖在了她身上。

The temperature of the air conditioner in the car was a bit low. Ruan Yesheng took out a thin blanket from behind and lightly covered her.

    到了酒店,几个人一起上电梯,八楼先到,奚墨象征性地摆摆手,说声明天见,径自走了出去。

When they arrived at the hotel, the few of them went up together on the same elevator. Arriving first on the eighth floor, Xi Mo waved her hand as a sign and said ‘see you tomorrow’. Then, she walked out on her own.

    奚墨走后,电梯门眼看就要关闭,阮夜笙立刻又按了开门键将其卡住,对路清明道:“我想起有点戏里的事要和阮夜笙商量下,你们先回去吧。”

After Xi Mo left, the elevator door was about to close. Ruan Yesheng immediately pressed the open button to keep it open and said to Lu Qingming, “I remembered something in the script which I have to discuss with Ruan Yesheng. You guys go back first.”

    白天的死鸡事件令路清明心有余悸,说:“让顾栖松跟着你,到时候好送你回房间。”

The dead chicken incident during the day left Lu Qingming’s heart with lingering fear. He said, “Let Gu Qisong follow you. He can send you back to your room afterwards.”

    “就隔了几层楼而已,说完我就回来,用不了几分钟。”

“It’s just a few floors apart. I’ll be back when I finish speaking. It will take only a few minutes.”

    路清明有时候油盐不进:“那让顾栖松等着你,到时候好送你回房间。”

Lu Qingming can be quite stubborn sometimes. “Then let Gu Qisong wait for you. He can send you back to your room afterwards.”

    阮夜笙蹙起眉。

Ruan Yesheng frowned.

    路清明一看她这表情,犹豫了片刻,说:“那好,我们先上去,你说完就赶紧回来。以前你也没什么话要和那位阮小姐说的,如今虽然在同一个剧组,我还是希望你除了拍戏必要的一些接触外,不要与她有进一步的什么沟通,你也知道,现在想靠你蹭热度的人太多了,奚墨,你要记得和不相干的人保持距离。”

Seeing her expression, Lu Qingming hesitated for a while before saying, “Fine, we’ll go up first. Hurry back up when you’re done speaking. You didn’t have much to say to that Miss Ruan before anyway. Although the two of you are in the same crew now, I still hope that you will not have any further communication with her except for the necessary contacts for filming. You also know that there are too many people who want to rely on you to gain popularity. Xi Mo, you must remember to keep your distance from irrelevant people.”

    阮夜笙心里送他一记白眼,没说什么,走出电梯。

Ruan Yesheng rolled her eyes in her heart. She then walked out of the elevator without saying anything.

    颜听欢住在0825,估计早就会见周公去了,奚墨住在她隔壁,摸出房卡准备开门,感觉后面有人,回头看见阮夜笙跟了过来,道:“有事?”

Yan Tinghuan is staying in room 0825 and has probably gone into her dreamland already. Xi Mo was staying in the room next door. She took out her room card and prepared to open the door when she felt someone behind her. Looking back, she saw Ruan Yesheng following after her. She asked, “What’s the matter?”

    “有事才能找你?”阮夜笙反问。

“I can find you only if there’s a matter?” Ruan Yesheng asked back.

    奚墨微不可觉地皱了下眉头,刷开了门:“要进来坐一下么?”

Xi Mo frowned imperceptibly. Opening the door, she asked: “Would you like to take a seat inside?”

    阮夜笙发现奚墨脸色虽然不太好,如今却会主动邀请自己进去,换做以往那是完全不可能发生的事。她是个一点都不贪心的人,在这个小小的变化中尝到的这一点甜足够令她开心许久了。

Ruan Yesheng found that even though Xi Mo’s expression didn’t look that good, she was actually taking the initiative to invite her in. This was something that definitely wouldn’t happen in the past. She wasn’t a greedy person at all, and the sweetness she has tasted from this small change is enough to make her happy for a long time.

    将耳畔的发丝拨了一缕过去,阮夜笙低眉说:“不了,我只是想跟你说下,身边没有顾栖松这样的保镖,你要小心,白天那件事可大可小。”

Tucking a strand of hair behind her ears, Ruan Yesheng lowered her eyes and said, “No need. I just want to tell you that you have no bodyguard like Gu Qisong by your side, so you have to be careful. The incident during the day can be quite serious. “

    奚墨看了她一会,发现她的神情虽然大大方方的,却好像又带了点难以捉摸的羞涩,顿时以为自己是眼花了。

Xi Mo looked at her for a while and found that although her expression was open, it seemed to have a little bit of imperceptible shyness. Xi Mo suddenly thought her eyes had gone bad.

    就像是很多影视桥段里演的俗套剧情那样,女主角与她默默喜欢了很久的人原本没有什么交集,只能远远看着,可是突然有一天,因为所谓的命运转折,女主角和她暗恋的人一起陷进了什么棘手事件中,于是在担心之余,女主角也终于可以鼓起勇气,有各种各样正当的借口来接近那个人了。

It’s just like the clichéd plots performed in many film and television shows. The heroine and the person she has secretly liked for a long time have nothing to do with each other, so she can only watch from a distance. But suddenly one day, because of the so-called turning point of fate, the heroine and her crush were caught together in a tricky incident. Whilst worried about their situation, the heroine can finally muster her courage and have all kinds of legitimate excuses to approach that person.

    看着看着,奚墨突然又觉得之前拍戏抱她时的那一星半点的尴尬又回来了,面上端着说:“嗯,我知道。”

As Xi Mo watched, she suddenly felt the embarrassment she felt during the hugging scene earlier coming back to her. While keeping her expression from changing, she said, “Mn, I know.”

    那点异样顺着奚墨的脊背往上爬,她顿了顿,自觉自己这时候也许要对阮夜笙温和一点了,于是加了一句:“谢谢提醒。”

That strange feeling creeped up Xi Mo’s back. She paused for a moment and felt that she needs to be gentler to Ruan Yesheng regarding this, so she added, “Thanks for the reminder.”

    阮夜笙笑了,只是看着她,眼里像有花在盛开。

Ruan Yesheng smiled. Just by looking at her, it seemed as if flowers were blooming in her eyes.

    “很晚了,你不回去休息么?”这气氛越来越令奚墨不自在,关键她自己都不明白这种气氛到底是什么时候倒腾出来的,她觉得应该尽早结束这场对话,寻求解脱。

“It’s getting late, are you not going back to rest?” The atmosphere was becoming more and more uncomfortable for Xi Mo. The main thing is, she herself doesn’t know how this atmosphere came about. She feels that she should end this conversation as soon as possible to be relieved from this atmosphere.

    “我这就回去了。”阮夜笙朝她点点头,看她一眼,转身往回走,脚步轻盈极了。

“I’m going back now.” Ruan Yesheng nodded at her. Giving her a glance, she turned around and walked back. Her steps were extremely light.

    奚墨盯着她的背影,心想,她现在就像是大学时候那样。

Staring at her back, Xi Mo thought in her heart: Her behavior now is just like how she was in university.

    可是大学的时候自己表现得不是很乐意与她待在一起,因为阮夜笙老不要脸地烦自己,现在她看着她,突然觉得她大学时候其实就很好。

But when Xi Mo was in university, she had expressed that she wasn’t that happy to be with her. It was because Ruan Yesheng always annoyed her shamelessly. Now that she looked at her, she suddenly felt that Ruan Yesheng was actually very good when she was in university.

    奚墨愣了一会,准备关门,却又听到身后一声唤:“奚墨。”

Xi Mo was stunned for a while. When she was about to close the door, she heard a call from behind, “Xi Mo.”

    她回过头,看见阮夜笙突然停住了,转过身来。

Turning back, she saw that Ruan Yesheng had suddenly stopped and turned back.

    “什么?”

“What?”

    “你还没有跟我说晚安。”阮夜笙站在走廊那似朦似胧的光下,手背在后面,笑着看她。

“You haven’t said goodnight to me yet.” Ruan Yesheng stood under the hazy light in the corridor. With her hands behind her back, Ruan Yesheng looked at her with a smile.

    你还没有跟我说晚安。

You haven’t said goodnight to me yet.

    奚墨乌黑似墨的眸子凝住了。

Xi Mo’s eyes which were as black as ink froze.

    以前晚自习之后,家里每天晚上都会派人过来接自己,有时候阮夜笙会跟着奚墨一路走到停车区,奚墨让她别跟,阮夜笙每次都会说她回宿舍本来就要经过这片停车区,奚墨也就没辙。

In the past, after their night self study, there would be someone from home coming over to fetch her back home. Sometimes, Ruan Yesheng would follow Xi Mo all the way to the parking area, and Xi Mo let her follow. Ruan Yesheng would always say that she would have to pass this parking area when she returned to the dormitory, so Xi Mo didn’t dismiss her.

    上车之前,阮夜笙也会跟她说:“同学一场,你还没有跟我说晚安。”

Before getting into the car, Ruan Yesheng would say to her, “As classmates, you haven’t said goodnight to me yet.”

    她不记得自己是否每次都跟她说了晚安。

She couldn’t remember whether she said goodnight to her every time.

    太久远了,她已经忘了。

It’s been too long, she has already forgotten.

    “晚安。”奚墨倚着门,长发披散在肩头,轻声对她说道。

“Goodnight.” Xi Mo leaned against the door. With her long hair draped over her shoulders, she said softly to her.

    阮夜笙满意地走了,上电梯,回到房间,像曾经那个少女一样,扑倒在柔软的被子里。

Ruan Yesheng left with satisfaction. She got on the elevator, returned to her room and fell into the soft blanket just like the young girl she was before.

    心跳喧嚣,笑意盈满。

Her heartbeat was loud and she was full of smiles.

    此刻,她觉得自己是幸福的。

At this moment, she felt that she was happy.
