Actually, Jiang Lili had been Ruan Tian’s agent since the first day Ruan Tian had entered the circle. Unfortunately, due to various reasons, she had never been able to get any good roles for her over the past few years. However, she had always been by Ruan Tian’s side, seeing her always working hard, playing all sorts of roles, and suffering a lot for barely anything in return.
So now that there were finally some signs that she was getting popular, Jiang Lili almost cried with joy.
For her part, Ruan Tian couldn’t get used to this sudden situation where good news seemed to have dropped into her lap.
“Ow ow ow, get off me! We can’t say that I’m going to be famous now.”
Ruan Tian was a realist. At most, this just meant that there were a few more fans and a bit more enthusiasm than before.
It was still a far cry from being truly famous.
Ruan Tian slowly began to read the comments again and felt a little uncomfortable.
She had never been praised so much in her life.
It was honestly to the point that she felt that if the first half of her life was a book, the title would be something like ‘The Life of the Despised Ruan Tian’.
“Tian baby, starting from today, you must properly pay attention to matters on Weibo.” Jiang Lili suppressed her excitement and continued. “In fact, I’ve already received several calls to interview you and also some invitations to variety shows this morning. I feel like I’m walking on clouds-”
Ruan Tian paused from scrolling through the phone and raised her head to look at her agent, “So did you pick all of them up?”
Jiang Lili’s voice came to an abrupt halt, and she said with a slightly awkward expression, “I agreed to an interview for now. The rest were turned down.”
Ruan Tian: “You don’t want to live anymore?”
Jiang Lili’s eyes were full of frustration, but in the end, she had to tell the truth: “…the company turned them down for you.”
Upon hearing this, Ruan Tian was not surprised.
Ruan Tian had been fooled by a scout back during her debut and ended up signing a contract with a large entertainment company. Although it wasn’t the largest company in the industry, it was definitely one of the best, so she hadn’t hesitated much.
Of course, Ruan Tian had been full of hope and excitement when she first joined the company.
But then, on the first day after she signed her contract, she ran into an acquaintance in the elevator.
It was Qin Yu.
Qin An’s older brother, and the man who had read her love letter aloud to Shen Shu in public back when they were in high school.
Ruan Tian had never been a soft persimmon who was easy to push around so, after Qin Yu deliberately humiliated her, she had rushed him one day after school. She was strong, and Qin Yu had been defenseless, so she had easily subdued him and pressed him to the ground with a bang and beat him up.
From then on, the two of them had been like fire and ice.
And in the Mary Sue novel, Qin Yu was one of the important secondary male leads who always secretly kept a woman hidden in his heart. Of course, that woman was her sister, Zhou Xiaoqiao.
So, that day, when Qin Yu met her in the elevator, although they didn’t exchange any harsh words, it was obvious that the atmosphere wasn’t friendly.
However, Qin Yu was already a sophisticated man, good at concealing his emotions, so even if he was full of unhappiness, or if he was trying to humiliate her, it would never show on his face.
He had given her a smile filled with unknown meaning and said, “Ah, so it’s Ruan Tian.”
Ruan Tian never showed a good face for Qin Yu, so she had retorted flatly: “Don’t call my name.”
“It makes me want to vomit.”
“Guh, I feel dirty.”
“Your filth has spread to me.”
Hearing her insults, Qin Yu’s smile had frozen and his face had sunk. Then, when there was no one around, he whispered in her ear as he passed by: “I’ll see how long you can wag your tongue like this.”
At the time, Ruan Tian didn’t understand what he meant.
Then later on she learned that Qin Yu was actually the boss of her company.
How to say it…
From there, her acting career was basically over before it even began.
However, Ruan Tian had always been a person with a great amount of flexibility and resilience, so she had gone to Qin Yu’s office early the next morning to try to make peace with a smile.
Unfortunately, whenever Qin Yu was alone with her, his mouth turned poisonous like a snake and he never had anything good to say. In the end, he made her so angry that she stormed out.
After that, it could be estimated that even if you searched the whole entertainment industry, you wouldn’t be able to find a second pair of boss and employee who hated each other like this.
Ruan Tian came back from her musings, “Well, that’s just normal. Qin Yu will feel an itch in his bones any day he doesn’t make things difficult for me.”
Behind the big boss’s back, Jiang Lili always stood firmly in Ruan Tian’s camp and didn’t hesitate to throw him under the bus, “You’re right, that Qin Yu really isn’t a good thing at all. He’s just an embarrassment to humanity.”
Ruan Tian suddenly felt a bit melancholy and changed the subject. “Anyway, this means I have another job, right?”
Jiang Lili hurriedly replied, “There are a few, yes. You need to go to Fruit Station on Saturday to help promote ‘The Replacement Princess’. Also, I’ve secured an audition opportunity for you, this time for the second female lead in a movie. I’ve brought the script along so look over it and be ready to go audition next weekend.”
Ruan Tian smiled, “Alright.”
After leaving the script, Jiang Lili headed back to the company.

— Thanks for the chapter~ ^^.
So this Qin Yu is the supposed male lead? The scum male lead, scum and scum regardless of reasons etc. whew.
Waaah. So amazing. Thank you for working on this novel.
And now my ranting 😉
I wish she NEVER goes back to that despicable excuse of a man. And I wish all those bastards of his friends who like to humiliate people just for the fun of it meet with the worst of luck. Watching a girl being dragged in an alley?! Trying to drown a person just because?!
As for her white lotus sister – just live your life with those scums. Great paring. Have fun in hell.
And her so called family? Scram and loose the company for all we care.
Just counted 4 good people so far – assistant, old couple from the village and the haui guy.
For what I read on the comments of novelupdates, he is.
Qin yu seems to be on of also main reason why the raiting is so low in this novel.
I’m really so frustrated with the original mls like wth is their problem??? They are so rude and like, no respect whatsoever?? How is that a Male God???? Istg if they are the love interest for our Tian Baby, I’ll be stifled to death. I hope they regret, fall in love with MC, but MC rejects them. And then throw them away just like the garbage they are.
