As soon as Qin Pictures released this statement, the Liu Yilee superfans who had been fanning the flames for so long suddenly went quiet, and soon after that, they began to silently start deleting their most inflammatory posts.
Unfortunately for them, they weren’t up against just anyone this time, they were up against the powerful group of lawyers from Qin Pictures. It already wasn’t something that could be settled by deleting a few posts from Weibo.
At the same time, Ruan Tian’s fans were suddenly overflowing with confidence and momentum. They seemed to be laughing as they posted:
“I’ve never seen anyone who switches sides so quickly.”
“Congratulations to everyone on the list. I wish you all a happy stay in your local detention center.”
“Even when you’re online you still have to be kind and not just kick out randomly, otherwise you can just wait to pay the price when you encounter the iron plate.”
“So cool, so cool! Also, I tentatively agree to the TianBabyXQinYu CP!”
“What’s a man next to Sister Tian’s beauty? All you CP fans need to remember that a man is just a tool to stand beside Sister Tian and emphasize her beauty! Real fans only have Sister Tian in our hearts! We only follow our TianBaby!”
Meanwhile, Ruan Tian really couldn’t understand what Qin Yu and Qin Pictures were playing at.
When Qin Yu treated her badly, that she could understand perfectly, but if Qin Yu suddenly began acting like he was acting today, seemingly suddenly caring about her life and death, she only felt uncomfortable all over.
Meanwhile, Jiang Lili was just as shocked as she was. She felt it was unbelievable that the company had suddenly decided to help Ruan Tian out this time.
“Did you sleep with Qin Yu?”
Ruan Tian: “Scram.”
Jiang Lili just felt the whole situation was ****ing incomprehensible and no matter how she thought about it, she couldn’t figure it out.
Back then, she had been there on the day that Ruan Tian had quarreled with Qin Yu in order to terminate her contract. Ruan Tian had gone to his office in a rage and, without controlling herself at all, had directly smashed up everything in sight. Even until today, the battle was still fresh in Jiang Lili’s memory.
Qin Yu’s face had been darker than the bottom of the pot, and before it was over he had gripped the pen in his hand so tightly that it had snapped in two.
Jiang Lili continued to guess, “Then… could Qin Yu have gone crazy?”
Ruan Tian felt that was probably the most likely scenario, so she nodded and said, “It seems very possible.”
In her mind, Qin Yu had always been a mad dog after all.
Jiang Lili slumped down on the sofa, “TianBaby, I have to say, this feeling that the company is backing us up for once is really very refreshing.”
For her part though, Ruan Tian honestly didn’t feel much. Perhaps it was because she had developed an ability to dissociate herself from it all, no matter how badly people scolded her online.
In her mind, it was as if the person being scolded wasn’t even her at all.
“Eh, it’s alright.”
As she was speaking, Ruan Tian’s phone on the coffee table in front of them began to buzz and vibrate.
Mother Zhou’s phone number flashed on the screen.
Ruan Tian was a bit surprised. Considering Mother Zhou’s strong personality, Ruan Tian had been pretty sure that after she had shed all pretenses with the woman last time she would probably never contact her again in this life.
Ruan Tian indifferently watched as the screen darkened, lit up, and then darkened again a few times in a row.
In the end, Mother Zhou persistently made three calls but Ruan Tian didn’t answer any of them.
When the phone finally stopped, Jiang Lili gave her a thumbs up, “I’ll tell you now, I’d had just about enough of your mother from a long time ago. It’s good that you’ve finally finished sorting your garbage and thrown the burnable-trash where it properly belongs.”
Ruan Tian nodded in agreement, “En, I’ve had enough too.”
Ruan Tian had no good memories from answering Mother Zhou’s calls and this time too, she just assumed that the other woman wasn’t looking for her for anything good.
Ruan Tian clearly remembered that in the latter part of the novel, Mother Zhou ruthlessly drove the evil supporting character out of the house without caring about her life or death at all in favor of the daughter she truly loved, so she had difficulty caring much about what the woman wanted with her.
Jiang Lili spoke happily: “Fortunately, you didn’t ever change your surname. How suffocating that would have been.”
In fact, the name ‘Ruan Tian’ was a name that she had given herself. ‘Ruan’ was the surname of the homeless old lady who had helped her back at the beginning, while ‘Tian’ was the character she had chosen for herself when she grew a little older and began to learn to read.
It was a name chosen because she loved to eat sweets, and because she had hoped that she could live every day sweetly.
It contained her hope that there would always be sweets to eat and someone to eat them with. (tl note: ‘Tian’ is ‘甜’ which the dictionary lists as ‘sweet; honeyed’ or ‘happy; pleasant’)
“I never wanted the surname Zhou.” Ruan Tian said with a frown.
