Today Ruan Tian was filming her last scene in ‘The Replacement Princess’. In the scene, when the arrogant and paranoid princess couldn’t get her beloved man, she simply tried to kill him so that no one else could have him either.
Ruan Tian went to the makeup department. Soon she had her ancient costume on along with her exquisite makeup that made her look gorgeous and unparalleled. She wore a deep and amorous smile and held the prop knife in her hand. And when she thought of ‘killing’ the male lead played by Xu Jing, her lips couldn’t help but curl into a smile.
The director sat behind the monitor and made a gesture.
“Act one, scene Thirteen, begin!”
The gorgeous woman was like a blooming lotus and she walked step-by-step to the man’s side. Her eyes were fixed on the man’s face, burning with something crazy, a terrible mixture of extreme love and hate all at once.
A breeze rippled through her black hair and rustled her wide sleeves.
She placed the tip of the knife against the man’s heart and slowly smiled. She leaned close to his ear and whispered, “Should I kill you?”
Her tone seemed cheerful, but there was a trace of sadness if you listened closely.
“That way you will love me.”
“You will belong only to me.”
As she finished the line, a few warm tears rolled down from the woman’s reddened eyes.
The tears stained and marred her beautiful cheeks.
Then, suddenly, there was a stinging pain in her chest. However, all she did was smile slightly, as if she wasn’t surprised at all.
She looked down, and saw that the man had stabbed her before she could stab him.
“Well done Ruan Tian, excellent work!”
The director poked his head out from behind the monitor after the scene finished and was completely unable to hide his smile. He praised her in front of everyone: “Ruan Tian, your performance just now was very good.”
Ruan Tian returned a pleasant smile, “Thank you for saying so, director.”
Xu Jing, who had already been surrounded by his assistants, had an unpleasant look on his face and deeply furrowed brows. He really didn’t want to admit that, for a moment, he had been dumbfounded by Ruan Tian. To the point that he had almost forgotten his part in the scene.
Xu Jing hesitated for a while. He wanted to leave, but it was as if his feet were not obedient to his will, and soon he found himself walking in Ruan Tian’s direction.
Ruan Tian had already removed her makeup and changed back into her street clothes. She had a big scarf wrapped around her head and covering half of her face, only revealing a pair of round eyes.
She was in the dressing room holding a cup of milk tea that Jiang Lili had bought for her but, the moment she pulled back the curtain that served as a door and stepped out, she ran into Xu Jing head-on. The milk tea in her hand immediately spilled everywhere, it splashed onto Xu Jing’s suit jacket and even a little bit went on his face.
Veins popped out of Xu Jing’s forehead. He tried to endure, but soon his pampered young master temperament couldn’t bear it and he snarled. “Ruan Tian, did you fucking do it intentionally!?”
Ruan Tian blinked innocently, “No.”
Xu Jing felt he must have been ill, why would he think to come and chat with Ruan Tian? She was a jinx!
Ruan Tian was afraid that he might want to settle the score, and even more afraid that he would ask her to compensate him for his clothes, so she silently snuck away while he was distracted.
By the time Xu Jing had recovered from his temper, Ruan Tian had already run away long ago.
After she finished filming, Ruan Tian returned to the dim and small apartment that she rented to sleep.
Then, when evening fell the next day, she received a call from her mother.
Mother Zhou’s voice was soft and gentle like water, “Tian Tian, your sister came back, do you want to come home and have a meal together tonight?”
Ruan Tian struggled to drag herself up from the bed.
She had almost forgotten that her Mary Sue heroine of a sister had already been discharged from the hospital and was coming home.
Ruan Tian really wanted to refuse.
She suddenly remembered the dream she had after hitting her head. It seemed that this time Father Zhou and Mother Zhou asked her to come home because they wanted to tell her that they planned to give Zhou Xiaoqiao all the shares of the Zhou Group, even the ones they had said belonged to her.
“I got it.”
#what a broken book, if you can’t write, just scram#
Ruan Tian strongly felt that, although she didn’t have the halo of the female lead and couldn’t be loved by everyone, she had no desire to just lie down and be a stepping stone for her.
