As the stars’ discussion about transportation concluded, the live chat was very interesting.
“And Sister Zhao wins the first match. Tsk tsk, it seems that she really does hate Ruan Tian for cutting off her path.”
“I never knew Zhao Meng’er was so sweet and innocent. I shouldn’t have believed all those people smearing her before. Isn’t she much better when compared to Ruan Tian? These kinds of ‘my way or the highway’ people like Ruan Tian aren’t any good, right?”
“Sister Zhao Meng’er is a role model for the youth. Meanwhile, that Ruan Tian is too hardheaded!! She deserved to be isolated from the group!”
“If you ask me, I think Zhao Meng’er is just too good. She might be the last bastion of purity in the entertainment circle.”
Before she left, Ruan Tian asked, “Does anyone want to carpool with me?”
But no one answered her.
For his part, Xu Jing didn’t think it was a good idea to carpool and he felt that Zhao Meng’er was much more sensible than Ruan Tian.
This group of people who had never taken the subway during rush hour, they really didn’t understand the true meaning of pain!
Ruan Tian didn’t bother saying anything more, she just directly dragged her two suitcases behind her and headed to the parking lot outside the airport terminal.
Sure enough, there were many taxis outside soliciting customers.
Meanwhile, the program group divided into two teams and followed both parties.
There were many people waiting to see Ruan Tian make a fool of herself in the chat. After all, they felt that carpooling in a foreign country wasn’t something so easy.
The first problem was the language barrier, and the second was that foreign tourists were prime targets for scams.
“If I remember correctly, Ruan Tian only has a high school diploma? And then wasn’t she thrown out of her university because of poor performance? Suddenly, I’m extremely looking forward to hearing her English skills.”
“Lolol, she probably at least recognizes ‘abcd’, right?”
“As they say, ‘sharpening the blade will not delay the work of chopping the wood’. Please tell me that Ruan Tian at least received her college education before coming out to work.” (tl note: the idiom is 磨刀不误砍柴工. Basically means honing/preparing yourself is worthwhile.)
“She’s going to lose face for all contemporary female high school students.”
But then, as soon as Ruan Tian entered the parking lot, two men came up to her and started speaking to her in their local language, not speaking even one word of the more common international language English.
The audience were all dumbfounded. What were these guys saying?
But what was even more unbelievable was that Ruan Tian seemed to actually ****ing understand!
Not only could she understand what they were saying, she could even reply!
The men spoke in Arabic to her, and she spoke Arabic right back.
Back in school, her science grades had been a mess, and her English had been just average.
But then in the first year of high school, Ruan Tian was called on by the English teacher to read out loud. Her pronunciation had been terrible, and Qin Yu had taken the lead to laugh at her. In the end, the whole class, including Shen Shu, all laughed at her.
They all took her terrible rustic accent as a joke.
Qin Yu even used it to mock her during the school’s New Years performance.
Ever since that happened, Ruan Tian had worked hard and pledged to learn English perfectly until she could stand in front of Qin Yu and curse at him in English with: Your mother is dead!
As for Arabic, she had spent many days and nights learning it for Shen Shu.
Back then, she had wanted to be a better and more capable person for him so that she could stand by his side as an equal.
Back in the present, Ruan Tian went back and forth with the men for a while before managing to secure a ride to her lodgings for 30 yuan.
In the end, she was the first guest to arrive at the lodging. And although the viewers couldn’t understand what she said to the driver, they could tell that she somehow managed to save ten yuan from her predicted cost and only pay 30.
“WTF? Was Ruan Tian’s academic background faked? Did she really not graduate from college?”
“Idk, but this college student here suddenly feels very inadequate. I’m studying Arabic at my school but I can’t speak it half as well as her.”
“Sister Tian is really amazing.”
“I can’t laugh at her anymore, I feel like Sister Tian is slapping my face every day.”
“Ah, our TianBaby is really great. She’s really mother’s good daughter.”
“Don’t try to smear our TianBaby! The only ones who will be hurt and spitting blood in the end will be you! Meanwhile, our TianBaby will only get more and more famous!”
On the other side, the four people who had decided to take the subway had only just managed to get on the subway as Ruan Tian was arriving at the lodgings.
They were all people who had always rode in private cars all of their lives, and they had no idea about the real sufferings of the world. When the group first saw the huge mass of people standing at the subway station, they almost wanted to turn around right there and find a taxi instead, but in order to save face, they knew they couldn’t do that.
Zhao Meng’er also felt regret. She suddenly realized that taking the subway just to ‘beat’ Ruan Tian wasn’t worth it at all.
She felt like she was about to cry.
