After the five people finished breakfast, they followed the program group to their next location. According to the arrangements of the crew, they all took a car to a local private villa to experience the ‘aristocratic lifestyle’.
Supposedly this villa was the private property of a certain big boss who had lent it to them for the show.
In fact, Ruan Tian hated this word: ‘aristocratic’. After all, she had studied in a high school for those so-called aristocrats, but she had never made any friends and only ever experienced what the media called ‘campus bullying’ from Qin Yu and the others. So the word didn’t conjure up any fond memories.
Once they arrived, Ruan Tian quickly understood some things.
The place that they had come to wasn’t a villa, rather, it was obviously a small castle!
It looked like the residence of some noble prince from the Middle Ages.
Before they got off the car, Xu Jing, who hadn’t said a word this whole time, suddenly opened his mouth.
He said, “You haven’t followed me back on Weibo yet.”
Ruan Tian reached up and scratched the back of her head, “Huh, were you following me? Wow! I know it now.”
Xu Jing raised an eyebrow, “That’s it?”
Ruan Tian said hesitantly: “Then… should I remove you?”
Xu Jing felt he was about to be angered half to death, so he turned around and decided to ignore her.
Ruan Tian muttered to herself in a low voice, “A man’s heart is really hard to guess.”
Once they got into the castle, they found that all the decorations inside were precious authentic antiques.
Zhao Meng’er instantly turned around and asked the people from the program group if the owner of the castle was also there. After all, she had changed out her backer a few times over the years and she was always eager to climb up even further.
She had long been fed up with her current backer, the bald old man who was more than twenty years her senior.
Zhao Meng’er would be very willing if she could catch a new younger or richer backer this time.
However, sadly for her, the director was very tight-lipped and Zhao Meng’er couldn’t pry out any information at all.
Ruan Tian wasn’t the type to overthink so much the way Zhao Meng’er did, so she just chose a sunny room to settle herself down in.
Soon after that, a butler arrived and informed all the guests that they would be going to experience the local archery range at 3 p.m.
Ruan Tian wasn’t very interested in archery so she decided to return to her room, however, after opening the door, she saw a man sitting on the antique sofa inside.
Six words popped into her mind: What? This ghost is still here!?
Why was this Qin Yu everywhere she went?
It was just like how it was back when she was in high school. Back then, no matter how many times she would change to a different part-time job, Qin Yu would always accurately hunt her down and come to annoy her by ordering dozens of cups of milk tea at the tea shop or creating various difficulties in the convenience store. There had been no stopping him.
Back then, the only days that Ruan Tian could breathe were the days when Qin Yu was too ill and had no time to come bother her.
In fact, even until now, it seemed that Qin Yu’s body wasn’t in very good condition. After all, if she saw him ten times, probably eight of those times he would look pale and sickly.
Ruan Tian had actually long guessed that the owner of this castle was definitely Qin Yu.
Ruan Tian knew that Qin Yu had a bad temper, so she wanted to avoid him, but before she could do anything he had already slowly stood up. His eyes narrowed and he smiled faintly before saying, “Hello Miss Ruan, my surname is Qin, why don’t we take this opportunity to get more acquainted?”
When Ruan Tian saw his current expression, she was suddenly reminded of the day when he had used her crisis to take advantage of her.
The look in his eyes now was exactly the same as it had been then, like a beast looking at its prey.
To this day, Ruan Tian still remembered that kiss.
After she had escaped from that place, she had gone home and cried.
After all, it had been her first kiss, which she had wanted to save for Shen Shu.
Qin Yu had finally moved in front of her, “Why aren’t you saying anything?”
Ruan Tian suddenly felt full of resentment.
Back then, why had she ever signed herself to Qin Yu’s company?
“I don’t have any desire to get further acquainted with you.”
“Are you having fun?”
Qin Yu leaned closer, and he could smell the faint scent of pear blossoms on her body, a light yet intoxicating scent.
He clasped her wrist, leaned down to her ear, and murmured with a smile: “Ruan Tian, I’ve decided I won’t care about your career in the entertainment industry anymore, but you need to listen carefully. You are an artist under Qin Pictures, and all of the artists in my company are in my hands, so you shouldn’t dream of striving for a double harvest in both career and romance.”
“I handled the matter regarding that college student for you, but you need to see him less in the future…”
