Actually, Qin An was from a younger generation than his brother and his brother’s friends, so he had never really hated Ruan Tian before, he had only heard various bad things about her. However, after getting along with her for so long on the film crew, he had mainly learned two things. One was that Ruan Tian had a really damned good hold on her temper, and two was that her appearance when she occasionally finally lost her temper was strangely cute.
And most importantly, Qin An really couldn’t help but give two thumbs up to the strength of Ruan Tian’s heart.
After all, even when the netizens were screeching like banshees to scold her online every day, she never showed any emotional changes, and just ate and drank as usual like nothing was going on.
She was always calm and collected, and she never showed much on her face.
After working together for so long, Qin An felt that he and Ruan Tian could barely be considered as half friends by now and, because he had heard various stories about Ruan Tian’s escapades regarding Shen Shu, Qin An felt that she must be secretly feeling unhappy now that she had been dumped by the man.
Thus, he one-sidedly tried to comfort her, “Ruan Tian, you don’t have to feel so bad. Didn’t you know from the start that Shen Shu didn’t like you? In fact, it’s best to be dumped as soon as possible, because this way you can quickly begin looking for new love, right?”
“I wasn’t dumped okay, can’t you wrap your mind around that?! After a mutual agreement between both parties, we decided to peacefully break up, okay? Do I have to carve those words into your thick skull so that you can understand what they mean?”
“Why are you yelling at me? I’m not the one who dumped you, right?”
Ruan Tian groaned. Some people were just too stupid. Communication was impossible.
Ruan Tian somehow felt that she really needed to clarify her attitude towards Shen Shu right now. She was definitely not weeping and moaning without him, okay? If she fell out of love, she fell out of love, and that was that!!!
Who hadn’t been blind and stupid when they were young and ignorant? Were people not allowed to heal and grow?
“I used to be an idiot.”
“That’s why I liked Shen Shu.”
“But now that all the water that was in my brain has finally evaporated, I can say that I really don’t love him anymore. I sincerely wish him and Zhou Xiaoqiao a hundred years of happiness, and I pray that she can give birth to a son for him early. I hope they get married this year, be a mother and father next year, have two in three years, and three in four years.”
Hearing that, Qin An just fell silent for a long time and didn’t say a word, not seeming to believe her at all.
After pondering for a while, his face became serious, and he asked, “You really don’t like him?”
Ruan Tian shook her head.
But despite her solemn refutation, Qin An still didn’t really believe her. After all, Ruan Tian had always been stubborn, and her previous level of infatuation had been too crazy and well known.
On the day that Ruan Tian announced the divorce, Zhou Xiaoqiao called Shen Shu while crying sadly. She quickly put all the blame on herself, asking between sobs: “Brother Shen Shu, is this because of me that you two…”
Shen Shu calmly answered that it had nothing to do with her.
But Zhou Xiaoqiao kept whimpering softly on the phone, as if she were very sad, before saying, “Tiantian will definitely blame me. She never liked me very much in the first place, so now I really don’t know what to do.”
Shen Shu listened to her crying, but for some reason, he only felt she was noisy and tiresome this time.
There was none of the usual heartache he would feel from hearing that sound.
In the end, he said a few perfunctory words of comfort and then hung up the phone.
Zhou Xiaoqiao slowly wiped the tears from her face and sat quietly on the sofa for a while. Eventually, she picked up the phone and made another call, this time to Qin Yu. Just like before, her voice was tearful and pitiful, “Brother Qin Yu…”
Qin Yu carelessly hummed a sound of acknowledgment, and then asked, “What’s the matter?”
Qin Yu didn’t dislike Zhou Xiaoqiao, after all, she was basically like the little sister that he never had.
She was also the only girl among their little circle of friends, and she had been spoiled by all of them.
He felt that her heart wasn’t bad, but that she had too many little thoughts.
Zhou Xiaoqiao wiped away her tears before hiccuping and saying, “Tiantian and Shen Shu divorced. I feel like it’s all my fault.”
Qin Yu leaned back casually in his office chair and said lazily: “It’s nothing to do with you, don’t think too much.”
Then after a short pause, he said, “I have to hang up first, something’s come up.”
On her end of the line, Zhou Xiaoqiao could only hear the steady beep of a disconnected call, and she suddenly felt strange. She didn’t like this feeling of being ignored, and she began to feel afraid that Ruan Tian was going to take everything from her.
For instance, all the men who like her, or the envious eyes of the people.
Zhou Xiaoqiao bit her lower lip thoughtfully for a moment before deciding that she would need to go and have a chat with her dear sister soon.
