Xu Jing was fine, but he found his eyes seemed to unconsciously wander over to Ruan Tian. As he looked at the young girl who was the one who had actually gotten injured and was grimacing in pain but who didn’t seem to intend to speak up, he felt something uncomfortable twisting in his heart. He pointed over at her and said flatly, “Go and treat her first.”
Ruan Tian was shocked by this sudden twist.
But her ankle did hurt quite a bit, so she didn’t complain.
It was as if the assistant director suddenly seemed to find Ruan Tian much more pleasing to the eye, and the way he spoke suddenly overflowed with politeness. He directly changed his way of addressing her and said: “Teacher Ruan, it doesn’t hurt, right?”
“It really hurts a lot actually.”
“Then let’s head backstage first. Apply pressure for now.”
Ruan Tian was helped back to one of the lounges backstage by the staff and a doctor quickly arrived to give her a check-up. There were no major problems with her foot, and the final diagnosis was that her ankle had been cut by a piece of flying glass.
After a brief treatment by the doctor, she just sat dazedly in her chair.
Ever since Xu Jing had entered the lounge, his eyes would unconsciously look over at her.
He understood that if Ruan Tian hadn’t moved to push him away then the chandelier wouldn’t have hit the ground at all, but rather it would have fallen directly on his head.
Xu Jing’s eyes lingered on her ankle that was swaddled with gauze, and he suddenly thought that she must be in a lot of pain.
But she didn’t say a word.
In the end, Xu Jing wasn’t an ungrateful person. He walked over and said slowly, “Thank you.”
Hearing this thank you made Ruan Tian’s whole body break out in goosebumps.
Just having Xu Jing suddenly show her a good face made her feel uncomfortable all over.
For him to suddenly start acting kind, it was too scary!
She felt terrified.
Finally, Ruan Tian managed to squeeze out awkwardly: “Oh, you don’t have to be so polite…”
“…even if it was a dog standing there just now, I would have still saved it.”
Xu Jing: “…”
Ruan Tian really did have the ability to anger a person to death with her words.
Around an hour later, the stage had been rearranged and repaired.
All the remaining games were canceled, and the guests were all invited back to the stage to continue recording.
In the end, the studio didn’t finish shooting until it was almost nine in the evening.
Ruan Tian called a taxi as usual but, before the car arrived, Xu Jing’s agent suddenly appeared with a smile and said to her, “Teacher Ruan, Big Brother Jing said to come and offer you a ride home.”
Seeing this money-saving bargain falling from the sky, Ruan Tian felt like she would have to be a fool not to agree.
But when she got into Xu Jing’s car and inevitably met his usual icy face, she suddenly felt that it was more likely for Xu Jing to send her down the Yellow River than it was for him to send her home.
Xu Jing dropped her off at her apartment complex, and this was the first time he realized that she lived in such a shabby place.
Suddenly there was some inexplicable sympathy in his heart.
Ruan Tian was completely unaware of Xu Jing’s inner turmoil, and she happily went to buy herself a bottle of milk tea before jauntily heading upstairs.
Xu Jing closed his eyes and the scene of Ruan Tian pushing him away from danger earlier this afternoon flashed through his brain. Somehow, his mind was muddled and painful right now. He muttered, “Liu Pang, what do you think of Ruan Tian?”
Manager Liu Pang scratched his head and replied. “I think she’s pretty good.”
She was at least very pretty and cheerful, right?
Xu Jing hummed, unclear if he agreed or not. At times like this, he would usually rest in the back seat while his manager was driving, but today he didn’t feel like resting for some reason. Instead, he logged into Weibo for the first time in a while and began to take a look at the news about current affairs.
Inadvertently, he found himself on Ruan Tian’s page.
He glanced through the selfies she had posted up and saw all the praise in the comments.
For reasons unknown probably even to himself, Xu Jing suddenly went through Ruan Tian’s Weibo and sent out a dozen likes in one breath. At the same time, pictures of Ruan Tian getting into his car in order to be sent home began to circulate online. At first, the fans were collectively silent, then they collectively exploded, and finally they collectively reached acceptance.
【Have you all noticed that Xu Jing deleted the post he made referring to Ruan Tian from before? 】
“She’s really a fox, right?! It’s only been a few days ahhhh!!! Now poor Brother Jing had his soul hooked away!”
“Wasn’t everyone saying that she couldn’t match up to him? That he refused to say one word to her? All these industry gossipers’ words are worth less than farts.”
“Even if the pretty sister is a fox, she’s the most beautiful fox in the entertainment industry. Ah, I feel I can love this sister for a lifetime.”
“Who isn’t able to love this sister? There’s no one right!”
“Follow me! I’m willing to go through life and death for the beauty.”
