Thus, on the opening day of ‘Destined Immortals’, the TianTian Group all rushed over to the official Weibo of Qin Pictures to show their dissatisfaction and express their demands: they wanted Ruan Tian to be given a professional team immediately!
However, in response, the Qin Pictures PR manager just played dead and didn’t reply at all.
Jiang Lili also saw the fans fighting for Ruan Tian on Weibo and couldn’t help but sigh. In fact, she felt that for that cheap son of a bitch Qin Yu to only bury Ruan Tian but not personally take revenge on her was already a rare show of his humanity! (tl note: ‘bury her’ as in ‘block her opportunities in the entertainment industry’)
But to ask him to give Ruan Tian a whole team? That was just dreaming.
It should be known that back when Ruan Tiang signed on with Qin Pictures, no one arranged anything for her, not even an agent.
It was only because Jiang Lili was too idle that she happened to volunteer to take Ruan Tian on. Of course, after contacting Ruan Tian she found that she was really awesome! She could only lament that all those dog men really had no eyes.
Especially that ex-husband of hers! Jiang Lili secretly speculated that maybe his eyes were blind.
After the opening ceremony was completed, filming began immediately.
The first scene was a fighting scene. The little junior martial sister played by Ruan Tian had been captured by the sect and was facing trial. They fished her out of the dungeon and dragged her before the sect elders and then, despite her innocence, the elders declared her guilty. In the end, she ended up fighting her way free and even killing a sect elder.
The director had brought in a martial arts instructor to coach the actors for these fight scenes. Ruan Tian had long become accustomed to the pressures of the job, so she accepted the teachings as best she could. The movements the martial arts instructor taught her for the scene were a bit complicated but, after learning and practicing a few times, she felt she had mastered them to an acceptable degree and gestured to the director.
“Alright, first scene, action!”
The girl’s light and elegant white dress had been soaked in crimson until it had become blood-colored. Her long hair hung messily over her shoulders and her face was deathly pale, but her eyes were still firm in the face of this crisis. She just stood silently and stared up coldly at the elders on the platform conducting the trial.
“You are accused of going down the mountain without permission, hurting martial nephew Gu Jianzong, and forcibly taking away his spiritual grass. This is a large mistake, and it has tainted the reputation of our entire sect. Do you understand your crimes?”
The girl’s hands were bound, and her legs were so weak she could hardly stand, but when she heard these accusations she couldn’t help but bend over and laugh. She laughed and laughed, and only when her laughs were dry did she slowly straighten up and say: “What are my crimes? Gu Jianzong is the one who has committed a crime.”
The girl’s pale and weak face slowly lifted to look the elder in the eye and she said, “Gu Jianzong has used his position in the sect to eradicate dissidents, destroyed the roots of his peers in the same generation, refined humans into artifacts, and done all sorts of evil things that are against the will of the heavens. He is the one who is guilty.”
Gu Jianzong sneered and directly sent a palm to her heart: “I have nothing to say to a wicked person like you. I’ll just directly send you to see the king of hell.”
The girl vomited a mouthful of dark blood and collapsed backward, and the spiritual grass that she had been tightly clutching in her hand was taken away from her.
However, that spiritual grass was what she had only managed to obtain after risking her own life, and she planned to use it to treat her master’s illness.
Thus, when she saw the spiritual grass being taken away, the girl suddenly went crazy. Her eyes turned red and, with a simple motion, she threw off the people who were binding her arms and directly flew up to the platform from which the elders were passing their judgment and seized the sword of a nearby guard.
Then she pointed the sword directly at Gu Jianzong!
The director was a bit surprised by how well Ruan Tian performed. Looking at her, she seemed like an inconspicuous little girl, but she didn’t lose out at all while acting opposite these old veterans from the industry.
“Ruan Tian, when you attack him your eyes need to be a little more ruthless, and the fight should be a bit faster and sharper.”
Ruan Tian felt that she had already been fierce enough.
Like a tiger in the jungle!
But she could only follow the director’s instructions. Thus, on the second take, Ruan Tian’s murderous intent was even stronger. So strong, in fact, that in the moment when she raised her eyes and the veteran actor playing Gu Jianzong was exposed to it, he completely froze as he felt an illusion that the little girl opposite was really about to rush over and kill him.
Ruan Tian directly picked up the sword and soared forward, which was when the accident happened.
It turned out that the direction was a bit off, and Ruan Tian ended up directly slamming into a piece of prop rockery on the side and falling down.
Seeing this, the crew quickly began to move forward, and the director took off his headphones and looked over in concern. In an instant, Ruan Tian was surrounded by a swarm of people, and someone helped her up from the ground, “Ms. Ruan, are you okay?”
Ruan Tian quickly patted the dust off her clothes and waved her hands dismissively. “I’m fine, there’s no problem.”
The fall actually wasn’t that painful, so she felt it was fine.
Or at least it was still within her acceptable range.
When he heard that she was okay, the director wanted to resume shooting: “Alright, let’s do it one last time.”
However, Shao Chengyue, who had been silent until now, suddenly said: “Let’s take a quick break.”
From where he was standing he had been able to see that Ruan Tian did not fall lightly at all.
Thus, when he saw that she didn’t shed a single tear and just jumped right back up, he felt a little bit of admiration.
He had even been suddenly reminded of that day when this girl had raised her little chin and told him that he had forgotten his lines with a slightly proud expression.
