Qin An, as an outsider, had never been able to tell that his brother liked Ruan Tian before. That was because his brother was really too excessive and overboard with the way he had treated Ruan Tian in the past.
Of course, when he thought about it, it seemed that the only person his brother liked to treat that way was Ruan Tian. So it was special treatment, in a sense.
But he really wanted to say… big brother, that’s just not how you chase girls!
You’ll definitely never be able to find a wife if you chase girls like this!
After realizing the problem, Qin An had thought up ten thousand different ways for his brother to get Ruan Tian to forgive him. But whenever he thought of Ruan Tian’s bullheaded temperament…
Well, his brother should just wash up and go to sleep instead.
It would be easier if he could just give up as soon as possible!
Qin An finally said in a small voice: “I think Sister Xiaoqiao is much better than Ruan Tian, brother maybe you… could change the person you like?”
After all, Sister Xiaoqiao was gentle and elegant, she had good character and high culture, and overall she was a refined woman that was very pleasing to the eye, right?
Qin Yu directly ignored this suggestion. Then, before he went back to his own room, he even confiscated the game machine that was worth tens of thousands of yuan on his way out.
Qin An, with no more games to play, felt bored and sent a message to Ruan Tian for help: 【Sister Ruan, you were right. My brother seems to be crazy recently. Please help me, your favorite little brother. 】
Ruan Tian:【If it really isn’t working, maybe you should try to find a bigger and better hospital? 】
Qin An: …
One thing Ruan Tian didn’t expect was that, even after she had scolded Qin Yu so badly and even called him “disgusting” before ruthlessly kicking him out of her house with both feet, he still didn’t give up.
These days he would often send her messages and photos. Many of the photos were from their high school days, and who knew when Qin Yu had found the opportunity to take these strange pictures.
For instance, there was a photo of her dozing off on her desk during lunch break, then there was a photo of a time when she was in front of the teacher’s office because she had made a mistake, and other such innocuous photos of her life from back then.
In fact, Qin Yu was most fond of how Ruan Tian looked whenever she was asleep. At those moments he felt that she looked soft and obedient and not disagreeable at all.
Back then he had watched her closely every day like a lunatic, so he had often seen Ruan Tian indulging in her habit of piling up her textbooks on her desk and secretly sleeping behind them.
Whenever she did that he face would press against the desk until it turned red with an imprint of the desk.
But one thing that never changed, whether she napped through the class or not, was that as soon as the bell would ring she would immediately spring up for her desk and go try to cozy up to Shen Shu.
In the eyes of that seventeen-year-old Ruan Tian from back then, it was as if she had never met a person called Qin Yu.
As if no such person existed.
And when he thought he that he just…
Meanwhile, the one receiving the messages all the time, Ruan Tian, could only feel both helpless and speechless about Qin Yu’s continuing crazy behavior.
It was already early December, and winter had begun.
Fruit Station released their first trailer for ‘Destined Immortals’, and it was officially announced that the show would begin its broadcast on December 25th.
A day later, ‘Emperor’s Bound Songstress’ also officially announced the day they would begin their broadcast.
It was a day and a minute off from a direct clash.
Before the broadcasts began, the data showed that all aspects of ‘Emperor’s Bound Songstress’ were suppressing ‘Destined Immortals’. Its novel had been a trendsetter in that industry, so right from that start it had a large number of fans drawn over from the book.
These fans saw the promotional videos and stills from the production and had their appetites thoroughly whetted, so now there were all very excited for the show and couldn’t wait to see it.
Zhao Meng’er, as the production’s female lead, was already raking in dividends before the broadcast even began thanks to the IP behind her, and she had gained more than 100,000 fans in the past few days.
Meanwhile, when compared with the explosive popularity of ‘Emperor’s Bound Songstress’, ‘Destined Immortals’ seemed much less conspicuous. Its IP was not as well-known and the advertisement campaign behind it proved to be not good enough. In the end, its current popularity was mediocre, probably only at the level of an ordinary drama.
Zhao Meng’er was elated. She had been waiting for this day for a long time.
She wanted nothing more than for Ruan Tian to be humiliated!
Furthermore, after her own popularity exploded, she really hoped that her fans would scold Ruan Tian half to death, and preferably they could implement some actual cyber-violence against her.
A few days before the broadcasts began, there was already the smell of gunpowder in the air.
A certain influencer who mainly covered topics related to TV and dramas even held a vote.
As a result, they found that more than 80% of respondents said they would go to see ‘Emperor’s Bound Songstress’, while another 70% said they were optimistic about ‘Emperor’s Bound Songstress’ chances of shooting to fame.
At 7:30 p.m. on Christmas night, ‘Destined Immortals’ finally made its debut without much fanfare.
The first episode showed the pretty martial younger sister, who was played by Ruan Tian, being picked up by her handsome and powerful master.
On the screen, the girl turned her head back and her shining black eyes gazed over at her handsome master, her beauty like a fairy.
This single glance, a person would remember for the rest of their life.
Meanwhile, in a certain forum full of fans supporting Zhao Meng’er’s appearance in ‘Emperor’s Bound Songstress’ this time, an inconspicuous post appeared:
【Everyone here has been talking about ‘Emperor’s Bound Songstress’, but let me break some bad news. I actually went to take a look at ‘Destined Immortals’ tonight with the mentality of wanting to see how bad it was compared to ‘Emperor’s Bound Songstress’. However, after watching the first two episodes, I can only say that it’s much better than I expected! 】
