Once Jiang Lili had left for the company, Ruan Tian had nothing else to do so she concentrated on reading the new script and trying to understand the role.
Meanwhile, the ratings of ‘The Replacement Princess’ continued to climb steadily, and Ruan Tian’s scenes continued to generate a lot of heat and discussion from the netizens, so Fruit Station quietly edited some of her cut scenes back in.
During this time, Ruan Tian’s Weibo followers climbed to 3 million and she was suddenly raised up to be a slightly famous 17th-line actress.
The praise from the audience continued to flow endlessly, and the fans started to blow rainbow farts her way.
【Originally, I wanted to look for TianBaby’s previous works, but I couldn’t find them at all. Turns out that our TianBaby is finally making a name for herself ooo 】
【TianBaby, would you please take more selfies! ! ! Don’t hide such a pretty face. 】
【TianBaby, remember to eat well. Mama is looking forward to your next role.
Whenever she took the time to take a look at what they were saying, Ruan Tian always felt that all these little fans were pretty interesting.
Then, the day before she was set to go record the promotional program for Fruit Channel, Tian Ruan received a call from her mother. Immediately, the woman on the phone started screaming, “Where have you been!? Didn’t I tell you that you should stay in the hospital to take care of your sister?!”
Ruan Tian pursed her lips, “I’m at home.”
Mother Zhou’s tone wasn’t good at all, completely impolite, “Well, hurry up to the hospital!”
Ruan Tian’s mind spun rapidly, and she was shocked to realize that the ‘story of the novel’ had already reached the dog blood plot regarding Zhou Xiaoqian’s second operation where she, the sister, would be asked to donate blood.
Of course, in the story the vicious cannon fodder had been very unwilling so, in the end, Mother Zhou found someone to tie her up and drag her to the hospital so that she could ‘convince’ her to donate blood using both soft and hard tactics.
Ruan Tian slowly spoke to the noble lady on the other end of the phone: “Alright, I’ll be there soon.”
Truthfully, Ruan Tian had always longed for family affection. And she always felt deep down that, even if her biological parents were partial, they wouldn’t be partial to a ridiculous extreme.
However, if her so-called parents hadn’t shed a few sad tears on the day they found her, Ruan Tian would have never even suspected that she was their child, so she didn’t hold out much hope at this point.
She hurried to the hospital ward and, just when she had barely caught her breath, Mother Zhou pulled her away and asked to draw her blood.
Zhou Xiaoqiao frowned, “Mom, don’t do this, sister probably isn’t willing.”
Ruan Tian stared at Zhou Xiaoqiao who was laying on the hospital bed. Her face was pale, her brows were slightly wrinkled, and her long black hair was spread out like a halo behind her head. She was the picture of a quiet and fragile beauty.
Ruan Tian thought: She’s really the female lead.
Mother Zhou wasn’t polite at all, and she stared at Ruan Tian coldly, “You don’t want to do it?” Then she hissed, “This is your sister, okay! Are you really reluctant to do such a small thing for her?!”
Ruan Tian lowered her eyes, “Of course I’m willing. I already sent a message to sister and told her as much, so I thought she knew.”
Zhou Xiaoqiao’s eyes immediately turned red and teary, “I’m sorry sister, I didn’t see it.”
Seeing this, Ruan Tian was convinced. This was really a level of white lotus that she would never be able to reach.
This woman really had the face to say that she didn’t see the message?
The ‘P’ in picture was a reference to your eyes, okay*? How could she have ever seen the message if she didn’t open her damned eyes? !
Ruan Tian didn’t want to waste any more words, “Anyway, let’s go.”
Mother Zhou quickly grabbed her and, without asking anything, took her to have 500 ml of blood drawn.
After the blood draw, Ruan Tian sat alone on the hospital bench and held the piece of cotton the nurse had given her over the wound in her arm in a daze.
Fortunately, according to the story, this should be the one and only time that these people would find her to donate blood to Zhou Xiaoqiao. If they asked her a few more times, she might just have to find a petrol tank and die together with them.
Distantly, Ruan Tian noticed that someone was talking about her.
“Is that Ruan Tian?”
“Ah, ah, ah, it’s really her.”
“The real person is much more beautiful than on TV.”
“What kind of illness does she have to need to come to the hospital? Ah, I really want to go over there and ask for an autograph.”
Seeing what was happening, Ruan Tian quickly pulled a mask over her face and sprinted away before a crowd could form.
Panting, she ran all the way until she was out of the hospital. Once she was outside, she tried to find a taxi, but then a black Maybach stopped in front of her. The window slowly rolled down and revealed Shen Shu. He looked over at her and said lightly: “Get in the car, I’ll send you.”
*so obviously this pun about the Chinese character for picture and the English letter ‘P’ doesn’t translate, like at all. Sorry.
