As for Ruan Tian herself, she didn’t even get up again until 2 p.m. that afternoon, and she only woke up because of hunger. She pulled herself out of bed while still feeling groggy and sleepy.
After stumbling into the kitchen Ruan Tian found some food leftover from this morning’s breakfast that she put into the microwave to heat up. After throwing in some random condiments to make it more to her tastes, she quickly ate all of the food and finally felt a bit full.
Ruan Tian stayed in the kitchen for a little while after that until she felt she had fully woken up, and then she began to work again. She went around and replaced some of the Western-style decorations of the walls with some traditional Chinese nature paintings. Once she was done, the teahouse almost seemed completely new, with a whole different temperament and style when compared to before.
It now looked a little more like an authentic Chinese teahouse.
There were a few more guests in the teahouse today compared to the day before.
Xu Jing was outside the door “advertising” by standing motionless at the door and treasuring his words like gold as usual. It seemed that he couldn’t put down his noble young master temperament to do this kind of work at all.
Ruan Tian couldn’t bear to see Xu Jing acting this way. After all, she wanted to bring in more guests! ! !
Therefore, she went up and patted Xu Jing on the shoulder, “You… can you open that golden mouth of yours?”
Xu Jing just frowned and said nothing.
Just then, a foreign person happened to arrive, and Ruan Tian got excited thinking that it was a customer.
However, the result was: the other party had lost their wallet and wanted to ask to borrow ten euros.
Xu Jing agreed, but just as he took his wallet out of his pocket, the other person suddenly stretched out his hand and vigorously snatched the wallet away before turning on his heel and sprinting away.
Ruan Tian and Xu Jing both froze for a second, but then started chasing in unison.
Unfortunately, the thief ran fast and was very familiar with the local roads, so they soon nearly lost sight of him. Ruan Tian reached up and tugged Xu Jing’s arm before saying, “Let’s call the police.”
Xu Jing was in a bad mood and he shook his arm to throw her hand off before, between panted breaths, saying coldly: “That wallet is very important to me.”
In the few seconds while they were stopped, the thief ran even further away.
Ruan Tian narrowed her eyes, then gritted her teeth and ran after the thief again.
After that, she didn’t know how long she chased him for. Her eyes were fixed on the foreign man in front of her until she could hardly see the rest of the world, and she kept running even as her breaths became heavy and her lungs began to sting. Before long, she could taste copper in her throat and her chest felt like she was suffocating, but her feet never stopped.
This time she was really convinced. This thief was definitely something.
She chased, chased, and ****ing chased some more.
She felt that if she kept running like this, she might run all the way to her death.
But in the end, the thief finally couldn’t run anymore and collapsed on the side of the road. Seeing that, Ruan Tian pounced forward and pressed a knee on his neck. Then, panting, she spat: “Give the wallet to this grandma here!”
The thief cried out and then quickly returned the wallet.
But Ruan Tian didn’t let up there. She quickly called the local police and then stayed there pressing down on the thief’s throat until the police arrived. She frowned.
After all, she knew that everyone had things that were important to them. Whether it was a memento left by a loved one or a meaningful photo or whatever, everyone had something.
Thus, even if it was Xu Jing, one of the people she hated, she couldn’t just let him lose such a thing in front of her.
When in a foreign country they, fellow countrymen, should unite, set aside their prejudices, and help each other!
Seeing how anxious and upset Xu Jing had been, this wallet probably contained a very important photo. In all likelihood, it would be a photo of the person Xu Jing had a crush on. Probably it was a hard won and rare photo that he had only acquired after much difficulty.
Ruan Tian understood everything clearly. She sighed. Who let her be so nice?
After that, she began to walk back. After walking for over ten minutes, Ruan Tian finally saw the teahouse in the distance and her hand unconsciously loosened. The wallet slipped out of her fingers and fell on the ground, where it flipped open.
When she looked down at the now open wallet, she saw there was indeed a picture inside.
It was a big group photo Zhou Xiaoqiao and them had taken after graduating from high school.
Shen Shu and Xu Jing were standing on either side of Zhou Xiaoqiao while Qin Yu was standing a little further out. The sun was shining and the breeze was just right to ruffle their hair in a picture-perfect way.
It was the perfect encapsulation of a certain Mary Su.
You could also say that it was the heroine and her heroes.
A certain thought crossed Ruan Tian’s mind: What a fool~
****, what a pain.
Ruan Tian finally went back and returned the wallet to Xu Jing with a sullen expression. After running for so long, she really had no energy and no mood to talk to him.
However, Xu Jing caught her by the arm and said, “I’m sorry.”
Ruan Tian’s face remained expressionless.
Xu Jing was sincere in his apology. He hadn’t meant to throw her hand off so roughly back then, he had just been too anxious.
“It was my mistake just now. Are you alright?”
Ruan Tian almost wanted to say that she wasn’t alright at all. She had just suffered a heavy blow just now, both physically and mentally.
To think another photo of Zhou Xiaoqiao’s would unexpectedly cast such a shadow.
It turned out men were all the same.
Shen Shu had also been very fierce with her because of a photo of Zhou Xiaoqiao.
The situation was so similar. Was it fate?
Fortunately, she didn’t care about any of this anymore!
Ruan Tian silently pulled her arm out of his and said seriously: “I’m fine, don’t mention it, it’s annoying.”
