The Ruan Tian that appeared in front of the camera didn’t show even the faintest shadow of depression. Looking at her, a person would think that her mood hadn’t been affected at all.
She was as beautiful and lively as ever.
Ruan Tian could vaguely feel that the director and the program crew seemed to be paying special attention to her today. For some reason, the eyes of the crew kept surreptitiously shooting toward her face, while the director openly scanned her up and down. Eventually, the director pulled her aside and whispered: “Ms. Ruan, are you okay?”
Ruan Tian, who suddenly had someone acting concerned about her, acted flattered on the outside while feeling confused on the inside, “I’m alright, why? Is something the matter?”
After the director was sure she wasn’t just putting up a strong front he felt relieved and he muttered a reply: “Hmph, the netizens have been saying you have depression. I almost believed it.”
Ruan Tian was surprised. Although it was true she had felt a little sad when her alternate account had been dragged out like that, it was far from the level of depression. Did people think it was really such a big deal to her?
She waved her hand dismissively and then made an ‘ok’ gesture while saying, “Don’t worry about me, it was just a small issue.”
As the stars began to board the plane, the film crew shut down the live broadcast as usual.
But even though the broadcast was coming to a close, the netizens continued to chatter wildly.
“I’d better quit the internet to protect my IQ. This time I really believed some random gossip accounts.”
“I have discovered that the things posted about Ruan Tian online are not accurate at all. I’m speechless.”
“Tian Tian was really beautiful today. I think it’s a new height of beauty for her hehe. Hey, is she still even human? Are we sure she isn’t just a little fairy who has come to play in the mortal realm~”
Who knows if maybe the funding for the show was bigger this time or something, but they had managed to book all of their guests in business class with adjacent seats instead of economy. Coincidentally, Ruan Tian and Xu Jing ended up sitting next to each other.
However, this time, Ruan Tian had come prepared. She had gone ahead and downloaded two movies to her phone ahead of time with the plan to watch them during the five-hour flight.
Thus, after sitting down, she quickly propped her phone up on the seat tray, put on her hat, adjusted her seat back as far as it would go, and then languidly nestled down to watch the movie.
But, in truth, Ruan Tian had just randomly downloaded these two movies from an annual top ten list, so she was shocked when the movie started playing and she found that the star of the movie was actually sitting next to her: it was Xu Jing. The movie seemed to be the big crime thriller that had helped propel him to fame.
In the end, Ruan Tian just attentively watched the movie and didn’t communicate with the people around her at all.
Because of this, naturally, she had no idea that Xu Jing’s gaze kept straying to her face and lingering there several times over the course of the flight.
As it happened, there were actually many star chasing little sisters in business class with the guests of the show this time. Most of them were Xu Jing’s fans who had managed to buy information about what flight he would be on and then found scalpers to buy tickets from so that they could ride on the same flight with him.
And, by coincidence, one of these ‘little sisters’ had managed to secure a seat diagonally behind the two stars that was close enough for her to secretly take two photos of them during the flight.
Both photos captured Xu Jing looking at Ruan Tian with faint, almost wistful eyes, while Ruan Tian was completely buried in her movie and not communicating with him at all.
Of course, the photo-taker didn’t dare to post these photos that were taken inside the plane’s cabin to her personal Weibo. She knew that if she posted them under her own name, she would definitely be chased and abused online by the fans of the two stars.
Thus, she waited patiently until the plane landed and she finally found a net connection. After that, she couldn’t wait to jump on the forums and post her two photos anonymously with the caption:
【It seems the TianxJing CP got divorced today. 】
1L: Photos from inside the plane? Where did these come from? Which little sister isn’t afraid of the law? This can be regarded as stalking you know.
2L: Tsk, this cold and alienated appearance, just looking at it you can tell that there’s nothing between the two of them.
3L: I feel that Tian Tian’s CP changes every day.
4L: One day she divorces because of disputes over property, then the next day she finds true love? This CP was always too good to be true.
5L: These photos are really sweet~ Xu Jing stares at her longingly from the side with a deep affection that can’t be conveyed with words. If this isn’t true love, what is?
6L: Xu Jing’s face is cold but his eyes are affectionate. Doesn’t he look jealous that Ruan Tian is just watching a movie and not caring about him at all? It’s just like the common ‘doting man feeling jealous’ scene often seen in dramas.
7L: Some people here have been brainwashed. A picture of two people who are obviously unfamiliar with one another can even be interpreted as true love.
In the photos, the screen of Ruan Tian’s phone on top of the small seat tray was also in the picture so everyone could see that Ruan Tian was watching a movie starring Xu Jing.
The onlookers on the forum were going wild and had already dreamed up an elaborate scenario where a doting Xu Jing was being ignored by Ruan Tian and feeling jealous.
Meanwhile, the little sister who had posted the pictures in the first place was feeling very speechless as she saw all these crazy ideas dreamed up by the netizens.
She was the one who was on the plane, so she saw it better than anyone else!
Xu Jing never paid any attention to Ruan Tian from beginning to end, okay? He just happened to take a few glances in her direction!
