Huai Mo looked down and his eyelashes fluttered, “I just didn’t dare to tell you. I was afraid that you didn’t like people like me.” He raised his head and said with a lonely smile, “I have no friends and no parents.”
Ruan Tian didn’t say a word, but the soft spot in her heart had been touched, and her posture unconsciously loosened.
However, when they arrived on the fifth floor, Huai Mo suddenly caught her wrist, and his strength was a great contrast to his boyish looks. His expression turned sharp, and his dark pupils stared at her without blinking. His cold breath brushed past her cheeks, and his lips were pressed into a thin line. After a moment of silence, he said: “TianTian, I was wrong, I shouldn’t have hidden it from you.”
The two of them were stuck too close together, and Ruan Tian couldn’t help but blush.
His aggressive male aura wrapped around her domineeringly.
From this, Ruan Tian could clearly feel the disparity in strength between men and women, and she could no longer associate Huai Mo with the poor young man who had squatted at the door of her apartment, too broke for even a bite of food.
His domineering strength clamped around her wrist tightly, and Ruan Tian could hardly move.
She gulped nervously, “Let go first.”
Huai Mo obediently released her arm.
Ruan Tian breathed a sigh of relief, “I’m tired, I’m going to bed, bye bye.”
Huai Mo smiled faintly and replied, “Well, have a good dream.”
He had already achieved his goal, so he felt he had done enough for today. He had let TianTian see clearly that he was a man.
A man who had enough ability. Both to suppress or to protect her.
When Huai Mo was a child, he had once stumbled across the scene of his father confining his lover in a room.
However, Huai Mo hadn’t felt it was sick.
Rather, his only thought at that time was that if he ever had someone he loved…
He would also want to hide her.
Never show her to anyone.
He could be the only person she would see, from when she woke up in the morning to when she went to bed at night.
And she could give birth to their children.
However, Huai Mo was a little reluctant to treat Ruan Tian like this.
She would probably not be happy.
Thus, so long as TianTian was willing to love him, he was also willing to make certain compromises.
Huai Mo headed back downstairs in a good mood. Once he reached the lobby he ordered the hotel manager to return the jewelry box to Ruan Tian’s room before leaving.
Because of the incident with Huai Mo, Ruan Tian’s mood wasn’t very good. And usually every time she was in a bad mood, she would dream of Zhou Xiaoqiao. It seemed that tonight was no exception. She dreamed that Zhou Xiaoqiao fell down on the ground and started to cry.
Of course, Ruan Tian hadn’t even touched her, she just fell down by herself and then immediately had tears streaming out of her eyes.
However, all of her classmates looked at her condemningly, pointing and whispering.
“Why is she bullying her sister again?”
“Zhou Xiaoqiao is so unlucky. Doesn’t she feel embarrassed to do this kind of thing to her kind sister?”
“God, how can such an evil person exist? And that person is our classmate! It’s so terrible.”
“Ruan Tian is still just standing there stupidly. Does she not know how to help her sister up? Xiaoqiao is too pitiful.”
Ruan Tian retorted that she hadn’t done anything.
But even though those people claimed to believe her with their lips, their eyes were still full of disgust.
Finally, Shen Shu came over and helped Zhou Xiaoqiao up.
Then the dream came to an abrupt end, and Ruan Tian was frightened awake.
She felt that all dreams were a sign.
Zhou Xiaoqiao had already begun to play her role as the heroine.
After recovering from her illness, Zhou Xiaoqiao’s Weibo was updated more and more frequently, and many netizens looked at her photos and reposted them every day.
Seeing those photos, Ruan Tian began to have a bad feeling.
For that pure white lotus Zhou Xiaoqiao to come out so aggressively like this, even if she never ended up joining the entertainment circle, she would definitely eventually find Ruan Tian unpleasing to the eye, and who knew what she would do then.
At the same time, although she and Zhou Xiaoqiao were twin sisters, they actually didn’t look much alike.
Maybe five points of similarity at most.
Thus, fortunately, no one recognized their relationship.
These days were very uncomfortable because whenever Ruan Tian thought of Zhou Xiaoqiao, she always felt like she was stepping in mud!
And at the same time, for some unknown reason, as Zhou Xiaoqiao’s followers increased she also began to post many specious words on Weibo.
@XiaoQiao: “I have a younger sister and I love her very much, but she doesn’t seem very fond of me.”
@XiaoQiao: “In fact, she doesn’t like me.”
@XiaoQiao: “All these years, as long as she liked it, I’ve always been willing to give it to her. This even includes the boy I loved back when I was seventeen.”
There was definitely a conspiracy.
Ruan Tian would see those posts and a certain phrase would pass through her mind: There’s always another bitch out to harm bengong! (tl note: bengong is the imperial ‘we’ used by high-ranking women in ancient harems. Also could be translated as ‘this palace’ but I think that sounds dumb)
With her little bit of intuition, she could detect something was off.
Zhou Xiaoqiao, that white lotus bitch, was definitely trying to stir up trouble.
Thus, adhering to the concept of ‘striking first to obtain victory’ Ruan Tian made a counterattack.
Ruan Tian took a screenshot of those posts and directly posted it to her own Moments with the caption: “I think that if a person has delusions of victimization, she should be treated. @Capital’s First Mental Hospital, please come and accept the patient.”
The Zhou family sisters…
Tearing face today!
Ruan Tian felt very satisfied. It seemed she was finally walking the path of the vicious supporting female character in the original book.
The coolness factor was 100%!
