After finally getting into the venue, Ruan Tian and Jiang Lili went to their two different assigned tables according to their invitations. But once she sat down, Ruan Tian noticed that Qin Yu was at the head of her table and, for some reason, almost everyone else at the table was a high-ranking person from the various companies in attendance. It seemed that she was the only artist.
Ruan Tian felt like she was sitting on pins and needles and she felt a chill on her back.
She felt that this was definitely Qin Yu’s plot to deliberately make things difficult for her.
None of the big shots at the table recognized Ruan Tian, so they were all speculating about who this woman might be. After all, there shouldn’t be anyone in their circle so eager to take their own life that they would blatantly arrange for a little lover to sit at the main table like this.
But, although they all had doubts, no one asked anything.
And no one suspected Qin Yu at all.
Ruan Tian planned to just bury herself in her meal and ignore everything around her.
But as soon as she stretched her chopsticks out, the other people at the table all stood up and toasted to Qin Yu in unison,
“““President Qin, a toast to you.”””
Ruan Tian pondered for an instant. She was bad with alcohol, so she decided not to toast as well, because that would mean she would have to drink.
Also, if someone asked her to toast Qin Yu respectfully, she really might not be able to control herself from throwing the wine in his face.
Thus, only Ruan Tian was sitting there, motionless as Mount Tai, even as everyone else at the table was toasting.
The head of the film and television department couldn’t bear to see this and quickly sent a few desperate winks while hissing, “Get up quickly.”
Ruan Tian stood up reluctantly and smiled dryly at Qin Yu, “President Qin, sorry but I’m ill. I’m afraid I might infect you, so I can’t toast right now.”
Qin Yu looked back at her with a smile that was not a smile. He swirled the wine in the glass in his hand and said casually, “It’s okay, I’m not afraid to get sick.”
****. Really shameless.
Hearing that, Ruan Tian fell silent for a moment before changing her words: “Then I’m afraid you might be sick and infect me, so I can’t toast right now.”
The people present all sucked in a cold breath, hardly believing that someone dared to speak like this to Qin Yu’s face.
Qin Yu sneered, his eyes cold. Unsurprisingly, Ruan Tian didn’t hesitate to challenge him.
After that, Ruan Tian ate until she was full, but she had no interest in watching or participating in this sort of event, so she quickly slipped away at the first opportunity.
In her mind, Qin Yu was like a plague god, and there would be nothing good any time she saw him.
Ruan Tian went to find Jiang Lili to asked to borrow a shawl before slipping through the back door to leave.
At the back entrance of the hotel, the streetlights were dim and the road was so dark that a person could barely see a few feet ahead.
Outside, Qin Yu was lazily leaning against the wall with one hand in his pocket in a pose that seemed somehow graceful. When he heard the sound of footsteps, he raised his alabaster face and smiled over at Ruan Tian, ”You’re full?”
Ruan Tian immediately stepped back and tried to open the door, only to hear a click and find that it had locked behind her.
Qin Yu slowly walked up to her and raised his hand until the tips of his fingers brushed across the side of her face. His eyes fixed themselves on her snow-white collarbone for a moment before slowly creeping down. Then he raised an eyebrow and said, “What are you doing running so fast? You think I’m going to eat you?”
Ruan Tian wrapped the shawl around herself tightly and pursed her lips.
Qin Yu was a madman who couldn’t be reasoned with. That was the truth she had understood about him ever since she was a child.
“I’ll drive you back, how about you cook me a meal?”
In order to get rid of him, Ruan Tian spat out, “Qin Yu, do you always show up in front of me because you like me? Because you can’t live without me?”
Qin Yu brows furrowed and he didn’t reply, as if he were really thinking about the question seriously.
Ruan Tian pressed on and spouted some nonsense: “Unfortunately, there are already too many people who are crazy about me, you don’t have a chance.”
