In truth, Shi’an really hated Ruan Tian deep in her bones. After all, this woman was the person who had swooped in just when she was at her peak and shattered her dreams at the last possible moment. Shi’an smiled and replied faintly, “It’s still not certain who will complete the task first.”
Ruan Tian put a hand behind her head and said, “I don’t mean to humiliate you but, honestly, an opponent like you can’t even enter my eyes.”
To put it simply, this person wasn’t worthy of her paying any attention to.
Shi’an wasn’t already a popular artist like Ruan Tian was, so she didn’t dare to unscrupulously say whatever she wanted the way Ruan Tian did. This variety show was actually Shi’an’s first public appearance, so she had to play the part of a “good person” no matter what.
And Shi’an was a person with a meticulous mind. Since she had decided to do something, her actions would be watertight, so her next words were still graceful and full of tact despite the anger in her heart.
She even kept a smile on her face as she said, “Well, we’ll just have to wait and see.”
Finally, the young movie star didn’t seem to be able to stand it anymore. His face looked unpleasant as he said, “Learning to respect others is more important than victory. If a person doesn’t have even the least amount of respect for their fellow actors on set then I estimate that no one would ever want to act opposite of that person.”
Ruan Tian: ****, it was another one of these guys!
She put on a cold face and retorted, “Wait until you’ve lasted until the end to flap your lips in front of me, okay?”
The face of the young movie star immediately turned dark. Seeing him like this, Ruan Tian suddenly had a premonition that this young movie star hadn’t tried to get Director Cheng to kick her out of the movie last time because of her bad reputation, rather, it should have something to do with this Shi’an beside him.
The circle of aristocratic families was only so big, so it actually wasn’t too surprising if these two already knew each other from the beginning.
The young movie star put his hands in his trouser pockets and said low voice, “Even with the cameras on you like this you are so rampant, it seems that you must be even more excessive when no one is watching.”
Ruan Tian could feel this person’s malice toward her, but she just smiled unconcernedly and replied, “Thank you for noticing, after all, I’m already known as a big villain online.”
The movie star’s face turned even colder. His anger was obvious, but this time he decided to remain silent.
Outside the gates of the Princess’s Castle, one of the men in black suits was patrolling around.
Ruan Tian waited for him to patrol in the other direction and took advantage of the opportunity to slip inside before he could spot her.
Unexpectedly, there was someone one step ahead of her already inside.
It was Qin An! Who knew when he managed to escape from that pillar, but he had somehow become the first person to enter the Princess’s Castle.
Thus, there were two people from the red team, one from the blue team, and one from the yellow team who had made it inside.
Ruan Tian was curious and asked, “You’ve already been here for a while, so why haven’t you got the crown yet?”
Qin An snorted and looked away. He didn’t want to talk to Ruan Tian at all. After spending more than ten minutes clinging to that pillar his arms were in so much pain that he could barely even lift them anymore.
Suddenly, another announcement rang out:
【Now that four contestants have entered, the gates of Princess’s Castle have been closed. The four lucky guests who made it inside are Qin An, Ruan Tian, Ji Wangjiang, and Shi’an. Congratulations to all of the listed people, you will receive a Hold Token. However, you still need to find the real princess within the time limit. 】
【If no one manages to find the real princess, then a Puppet Token be issued. 】
【The person who receives a Puppet Token will have to escape from five “seekers” for a certain amount of time, and if they fail to do so they will be removed from their team. 】
【However, you can abstain from the task by using a Hold Token. If you use your Hold Token to abstain, you won’t be removed from your team. 】
Qin An’s legs immediately went weak. A single man in black alone was already enough for him, if it were to be changed to five at once he might as well directly check himself in to the hospital.
Shi’an was the first one to break the silence. She murmured: “After thinking carefully, I feel that this game is too risky. There is only a 50% chance of guessing the right answer, but if the wrong person receives the punishment and ends up eliminated by the seekers, then it will drag down their whole team.”
Qin An touched his chin thoughtfully. He felt that what she said was reasonable, so he spoke up, “I agree. Plus, we all already have Hold Tokens, so we won’t make any losses.”
This situation was why no one had been able to get an Elimination Token during the past two seasons of ‘Star Acceration’. The difficulty was so high it was almost impossible and the contestants were also provided with an easy out in the form of the Hold Tokens.
Almost all the viewers in the audience agreed with Shi’an’s words. They all felt that she had made a thorough analysis and settled on the best option.
