Once the guests all arrived at the airport, the program group began the live broadcast.
First, they went around and introduced the guests one by one.
Zhao Meng’er smiled gently at Ruan Tian and stretched out her hand, “Elder Sister TianTian, to think we’re meeting again like this. I’ve missed you.”
To be honest, Ruan Tian was a little scared when this woman suddenly started acting like this.
She was feeling dumbfounded inside, because this was definitely not how Zhao Meng’er had acted when they were both on the crew of ‘The Replacement Princess’! Back then, she was the heroine who had been personally handed her role by some higher up, and she had always acted like it. She had never cared about anyone else on set except for Xu Jing.
One time, Zhao Meng’er had even gotten furious at Ruan Tian because she accidentally touched her water bottle.
So it was a little strange for her to suddenly be acting so sweet now, right?
Ruan Tian cleared her throat and said, “I am twenty-two.”
Then, she continued slowly: “You are twenty-seven.”
Zhao Meng’er was definitely not the right age to be calling her ‘elder sister’!
When Ruan Tian’s words fell, the smile playing about the corner of Zhao Meng’er’s lips froze, and her whole body stiffened almost imperceptibly. She could feel her breath getting blocked up in her chest, and she just about died from anger.
But on the outside, Zhao Meng’er adjusted her expression to look tender and weak, and tears began to well in her eyes as if Ruan Tian were bullying her. She looked fragile and delicate.
But once they all boarded the plane the live broadcast was temporarily suspended, Zhao Meng’er immediately returned to her usual form.
With no cameras around, she couldn’t be bothered to keep up the act. She quickly spent a bit of money and got herself transferred straight to the first class, and was too lazy to care about Ruan Tian anymore.
Ruan Tian stayed in economy class though.
Of course, she also wanted to go to first class too but…
Who told her to be so poor!
Ruan Tian and Xu Jing happened to be sitting on the same row, and Ruan Tian assumed that he would also upgrade and leave without hesitation, but unexpectedly he stayed put.
Xiao Pang carefully went forward and asked Xu Jing if he wanted to change seats.
But Xu Jing didn’t even open his eyes, he just muttered in a low voice, “No.”
Seeing this, Xiao Pang really wanted to cry.
If the scene of these two riding together on the plane got out, he was definitely going to be scolded by Xu Jing’s fans again!
After the plane took off, Ruan Tian didn’t feel tired enough to sleep, but her phone had no signal on a plane, so she was bored. Of course, she wouldn’t ever take the initiative to try to chat with Xu Jing, so she just leaned back against her seat and tried to empty her mind. In the end, that was just too boring, so she took out her phone and began to play one of the games installed on it.
However, the flight to the island was scheduled to take seven hours.
And after Ruan Tian played on her phone for less than half an hour she could already feel a headache coming on.
She turned to a staff member who was sitting in the staff seating behind her and asked, “Miss, do you have any extra blindfolds?”
“Sorry, we don’t provide those on this flight.”
Ruan Tian mumbled an acknowledgment.
But then Xu Jing, who had been silent until now, suddenly said, “I have extra.”
He looked over at Xiao Pang, and Xiao Pang immediately found a new unopened blindfold and handed it to Ruan Tian.
Ruan Tian accepted it casually, put it over her eyes, and fell asleep.
Xu Jing glanced over at her but then swiftly moved his eyes away.
In the past few months, it was more difficult not to have seen the news about Ruan Tian since all the news outlets covered her divorce so extensively.
Xu Jing hadn’t expected for Ruan Tian to divorce Shen Shu so soon. After all, everyone in his circle of friends had seen her relentless and crazy pursuit of him back in high school.
In their entire school, there had been no one else like Ruan Tian, who pursued someone else so openly and so without hesitation.
Without any consideration, she had been like a moth drawn to a flame, always rushing forward fearlessly.
Back then, Xu Jing had never liked her much because he had always felt her behavior was inappropriate and her mind wasn’t pure. Because of that, although perhaps not as overtly as Qin Yu, he had made trouble for her from time to time.
However, these past months Xu Jing had begun to feel that, despite knowing Ruan Tian for so many years, he had actually never known her at all.
