Shen Shu remembered that, after Ruan Tian had insisted on entering the entertainment industry and the things that had happened with him, Ruan Tian’s relationship with the Zhou couple had become very cold.
Shen Shu’s eyes flickered, and there was contempt in his tone, “Did you come to see me?”
Ruan Tian was speechless.
“You think I came back because you were here?” She retorted.
Shen Shu also remembered that Ruan Tian liked him very much, otherwise she wouldn’t have done something like drugging him back then. He put out his cigarette and said, “You don’t have to try so hard.”
Ruan Tian was really speechless from the bottom of her heart!
Since she had caught a cold she was in a bad mood. She wrapped her scarf tightly around her face and said, “Fine, fine. Just treat it like I’m a stalker who loves you deeply.”
Shen Shu couldn’t really understand what he was feeling. He had always hated the things she had done, and hated the way she had forwardly loved him back then without ever hiding it. However, right now, he felt slightly moved by her small and fragile back for some reason.
However, after saying her piece, Ruan Tian didn’t bother to care about him anymore and turned around to head over to the pharmacy that was near the gate of the community. She bought some cold medicine and then staggered off towards the station carrying her plastic bag.
After a while, she stopped in front of a parked car and used the tinted window as a mirror to examine her reflection as she pulled out her phone to call Jiang Lili. As she examined herself, she began to mutter: “Hah, that Shen Shu dares to ask me why I went to the Zhou Residence? How can he ask such an idiotic question? It’s my house, why shouldn’t I go back? What if I just wanted to take a look at that pure and innocent white lotus, Zhou Xiaoqiao?”
“Just look at him. He’s really narcissistic enough to think that I still have feelings for him.”
“Then again, maybe he’ll use that pen of his to add a few more millions for me after the divorce since he now knows about my ‘true feelings’.”
Shen Shu sat quietly in the driver’s seat. His hands were on the steering wheel and his thumbs were lightly and rhythmically tapping against it. He looked out through the glass and saw that woman standing there, her voice traveling through the window that was open a crack and into his ears.
Shen Shu raised his eyebrows and laughed angrily.
After that, Ruan Tian developed a high fever and ended up falling asleep very quickly after taking the medicine when she got home. Because of that, she missed the message that Jiang Lili sent her telling her that the program group of ‘Star Transformations’ would come and fetch her from her home in the morning.
The next day, the weather in the capital was actually pretty good.
There was bright sunlight reflecting off the snow, and the sky was clear and bright.
And, at dawn the next day, the director and filming crew from ‘Star Transformations’ found the small and remote apartment that Ruan Tian rented and knocked on her door.
Ruan Tian was tired and in a daze after being woken up by the sound of someone knocking on the door. Confused about why her sleep was being disturbed she crawled out of bed and groggily went to open the door while still in her pajamas.
When she opened the door, her face was frosty and expressionless, and her eyes swept over the gather people in front of her coldly.
The director was stunned for a moment by her chilly and listless appearance. He uncomfortably tugged at his collar and said, “You’re Miss Ruan Tian, right? We are the film crew that is filming the sixth season of ‘Star Transformations’. We’re recording now, so could you please quickly pack your luggage and come with us? You’re only allowed one suitcase, and we need to set off soon.”
“Also, we’re recording live right now, as a pre-release for the pilot.”
Ruan Tian was stunned for a long moment. And, although her face looked icy and stern, actually she was just feeling muddled and confused.
However, after a while, she seemed to remember that she had indeed agreed to film such a variety show.
“Wait a moment.” She said tiredly.
Ruan Tian went back to her bedroom and quickly changed her clothes. Then she dragged out a small suitcase from under her bed and stuffed it with some winter clothes. She packed some pants, sweaters, and a few thick down jackets but, other than that, she didn’t pack anything else.
Meanwhile, the director was sitting in the living room and enduring his desire to complain.
Ruan Tian could at least be considered a small star, right? So why was she living in such a small and shabby place?! This apartment was way out on the edge of the city and it only had two rooms total! Just how poor was she?
Wasn’t she supposed to be the wife of Huanshi Entertainment’s CEO!? This place was really just too shabby.
However, seeing this place with his own eyes, the director really started to feel that the rumors outside were true.
Ruan Tian and her husband, the CEO of Huanshi Entertainment, were not on good terms at all.
Putting it bluntly, it seemed that the Shen family didn’t like her so much that, even after she married into the family, they still treated her like this.
In fact, the director was completely relieved when he saw this. It meant that this small star had no one to help her backstage and no background to speak of, so he could push her as hard as he wanted to on the show! After all, the audience liked nothing better than to watch stars making fools of themselves.
