The director, while holding a script and looking at the camera, shouted, “CUT!”
Lynette was shooting a romance movie at that time. Its title was Young and Beautiful. She was walking on the seashore by the sunset holding hands with a handsome male lead, Steve Reese. Lynette and Steve were called loveteam in the movie industry.
They were always paired together in movies, photoshoots, and even in interviews. They had been a love team for almost two years now and because they had been together for a long time, Steve had already developed a huge admiration for Lynette.
Although they made most romance movies together, they never had any kissing scenes or bed scenes yet. The reason is Lynette strictly added on her contract the ‘NO KISSING SCENE AND BED SCENE POLICY’. That was why Steve admired her even more.
The director walked toward the two and smiled. “If only you are allowed to have a kissing scene, this would be better,” he blatantly told Lynette.
“Director, if you really want to do that, we can shoot a silhouette and have another actress do it,” Lynette replied.
Actually, it was a good idea but Steve suddenly said in a firm tone “Then the actor must also be a double!”
The director clapped his hands and told them, “You two are really a perfect pair. You think alike. How could it have been better if you are a real couple~
Steve didn’t let the director finish his talks, “Director, you must be tired. Take some rest!”
The director was stunned but he still followed his suggestions. While walking away, he was shouting to all the crews that they need a double for Lynette and Steve for the silhouette kissing scene. They needed to shoot now that the sunset was still there, radiantly beautiful.
While listening to the director’s hoarse voice, Lynette asked Steve “Why don’t you take the scene?” Steve fixed her shawl on her shoulder first then stared at her, “I can’t forgive myself if I’m going to kiss another woman while you are watching.”
Lynette was shocked but chuckled after a moment, “You’re kidding right?”
Steve gazed at her and seriously said, “I’m not!”
Lynette couldn’t say anything. She treated Steve as her big brother and this was the first time that he confessed his feelings to her. There was an abrupt quiet moment while they were strolling by the seashore. Lynette seemed to lose her voice by Steve's sudden confession.
Lynette broke the silence, “Steve you know that my feelings for you are just like a feeling for a sibling, right?”
He didn’t say anything but he was glancing at the horizon while Lynette's eyes were fixed on him. He was 190cm tall so Lynette usually lifted her head a bit when she talked to him. Steve's mind was floating at that time.
He had been thinking and planning for the day that he’d confessed his feelings to her but just because of that kissing scene, he accidentally spilled it.
What was he thinking?
When the director said that the scene was way better if they kissed, he was already thinking of how to approach her. Although he knew that she wouldn’t agree, it still hurt him a slight bit when Lynette suggested having a double for that scene.
Steve was hoping that Lynette had also developed some feelings for him since they’d been called loveteam for two years and they were always together.
“Does she despise me? Disgusted?”
All of the possible negative reasons appeared on his mind. He liked Lynette a lot.
When did it start?
It was just last year and it had been six months. When they had a photoshoot together for a perfume advertisement. She was wearing a white skimpy two-piece bikini. Although Lynette wore some revealing clothes for the shoots sometimes, this was her first time wearing a skimpy two-piece. She was a walking goddess.
Even the crews on the set couldn’t take their eyes off her. And what added fuel to his burning sensation was the scene where they almost kissed. Their lips were just a few centimeters apart. When Steve saw the looks of the men on the set, he just wanted to punch every one of them.
Since then Steve promised himself to protect Lynette no matter what.
