While she was still distracted, Xu Jing had finished adjusting his state. He glanced over at her, and then said to the director: “Let’s do it one last time.”
Xu Jing was really surprised today. He didn’t expect that Ruan Tian, this white lotus bitch, would really be able to withstand this ‘water play’. And so, after being dunked in the water over and over again until he was satisfied, she was finally fished out with a face that was whiter than paper.
The last take was finally over.
Ruan Tian breathed a sigh of relief and didn’t think much of it. She had long understood the truth that money was hard to make and shit was hard to eat.
Xu Jing suddenly walked towards her through the crowd.
Ruan Tian silently rolled her eyes and before Xu Jing could open his mouth she said: “I know, I know. Don’t ever think about harming Xiaoqiao, don’t dream of grabbing her possessions, she’s much better than I’ll ever be, and I’m not even worthy to be compared with her.”
Ruan Tian had long memorized the only things that Xu Jing would want to say to her.
Xu Jing, who had been blocked by her, felt very upset in his heart. However, seeing that she was self-aware, he snorted coldly, then turned his head and left.
After removing her makeup, Ruan Tian changed back into her own clothes. She sat down in the lounge and swiped through her phone for a while. Eventually, she opened Moments and saw that she had been tagged.
Her sister Zhou Xiaoqiao, whose operation had been a complete success, had moved back to her villa on the outskirts of the capital.
Before Ruan Tian exited WeChat, her phone screen suddenly lit up, and a bunch of familiar numbers appeared in front of her.
Although she had never dialed this number, she still recognized that it was probably Shen Shu’s.
Her intuition told her that this call from Shen Shu was definitely so he could negotiate a divorce.
Ruan Tian wasn’t too upset.
She only cared about how much money she could get from the divorce! ! !
Ruan Tian had liked Shen Shu quite a bit.
Even back when she and he were plotted against and forced to have their one-night stand, there had been a little bit of joy in her heart.
After getting married, she had foolishly wanted to be a model couple with Shen Shu, and she even had naive dreams of having a beautiful love with Shen Shu.
Then reality gave her a series of hard slaps to the face, making her wake up again and again.
Shen Shu was his father’s eldest son and the eldest grandson of the Shen family. Ever since childhood he had always been the most stunning man in the crowd, with a cold and exquisite face that a person would never forget after seeing once.
After graduating from college, compared with the other uninspiring men his age, he had an excellent reputation and was very pleasing to his elders’ eyes.
At the beginning of the marriage, Ruan Tian struggled to pretend to be intellectual and elegant in front of him. Later… well, that boat was overturned a large number of times and she became too lazy to pretend to be in front of him.
Shen Shu had always been cold and indifferent to her, and he would look at her with the same eyes he would use to look at a stranger, as if to say ‘You have nothing to do with me, even if you are my wife’ or ‘Your life or death has nothing to do with me’.
Ruan Tian hadn’t cared back then, after all, she had very thick skin! She had repeatedly fought and been defeated again and again. Thought she knew that he didn’t like her, she couldn’t help but rush to his side.
Then one time, Ruan Tian accidentally broke into his study and happened to see a photo from high school where he was alone with Zhou Xiaoqiao. She had picked it up in her hands and looked at it several times while sighing.
“Zhou Xiaoqiao is so damned beautiful.” Back then, she couldn’t help but make that admission aloud even as she felt a slight pain in her heart.
Youth without this kind of painful plot wasn’t worthy of being called youth!
Ruan Tian had been busy thinking that she had a real penchant for the melodramatic when her hand suddenly loosened, and the glass frame fell to the ground and shattered.
She swore a few times and then squatted down to pick up the photo, but before she could the door of the study was kicked open by Shen Shu.
The man’s face was blue, his eyes were icy, and he glared at her coldly.
Ruan Tian was so startled by Shen Shu that she jerked and her fingers accidentally grazed the broken glass, and her blood spattered over Zhou Xiaoqiao’s face in the photo.
Ruan Tian endured the pain, stood up slowly, and smiled, “Although you may not believe it, I really didn’t mean to.”
It was a standard white lotus line.
Shen Shu’s eyes grew colder, and he stretched out his hand and pushed her away. Then he picked up the photo carefully and said in a cold tone, “Who allowed you to come in?”
“How were you educated? Don’t you know you can’t just come into someone else’s study?”
Ruan Tian, who had been pushed, fell on the ground. There were many small shards of broken glass in the spot where she caught herself with her palm, and she didn’t even need to look to know that her palm was full of blood.
Shen Shu didn’t care whether she was hurt or not, he only seemed to be concerned about his memories with Zhou Xiaoqiao being spied on.
Only two words had popped into Ruan Tian’s mind at the time: **** ***.
She endured the tingling pain in her palm, stood up, hid her hands behind her back, lowered her head, and said: “I’m sorry.”
Life wasn’t easy, she felt really damned angry, but her mouth said sorry.
After that day, Ruan Tian moved out of the Shen residence and solemnly vowed to herself that she would die before she ever went back to that place.
But then, just as she was gearing up to show off her skills in the entertainment industry, she lost her savings of 60,000 yuan to scammers.
When Ruan Tian found herself too poor to eat, she selectively forgot the solemn vow she had made and, embarrassedly, planned to ask Shen Shu if she could borrow some money for emergency provisions.
However, it was then that she remembered that she didn’t even deserve Shen Shu’s phone number.

I do know marriage without love exists, but since both were innocent in the matter it was clear mc didn’t deserve such treatment.
To be honest I’d love if mc continue on divorced or ended with someone decent that certainly not his husband… Or ex-husband soon.
Thanks for the chapters!
God I really hope none of the men who treated her like trash are the ML. There’s novels where I’m like yeah okay I ship it but this one, nope! Xu Jing literally forced her to do a scene where she was being drowned multiple times for the fun of it. Let’s not get started with the oriML, just reading how he acts with MC makes me want to drop kick him.
Please tell me that the ex husband is not the ml
You know what (╬▔皿▔)╯
I really want to kick him
Scums everywhere 🤮
