Qin Yu continued to wear a smile that was not a smile. He looked at Ruan Tian and said, “You’ve already filmed everything. Why don’t you take it out and let me have a look?”
His tone was rather impatient, on the verge of anger.
Ruan Tian wasn’t really afraid of Qin Yu’s craziness anymore, so she said confidently, “Director, just take it out.”
After all, it had been filmed for the public to appreciate in the first place.
In the end, the director really took out everything they had shot that day for Qin Yu to see. Since it was still unedited, there were nearly ten minutes of clips overall.
Qin Yu was completely expressionless. He sat motionlessly and watched the screen with cold eyes. Once he finished watching, the whole room was still and silent. Even the sound of a pin drop could be heard.
Qin Yu wore a smile filled with unknown meaning. Finally, he gritted his teeth and spat: “Nicely filmed.”
Ruan Tian replied, “En, I think it was well filmed too.”
The air on set seemed to be filled with a strong smell of gunpowder.
It was as if the two people were about to start fighting the next second.
The director lamented that his life was really too difficult.
There was no one inside or outside he could turn to for help.
He felt like he was in the middle of a Shura field.
However, when he saw that Qin Yu didn’t seem to intend to force him to delete the clips, the taut string in the director’s heart couldn’t help but relax a bit.
After all, even though this ancestor was the one investing money, the director felt it would be best if he just gave money and didn’t interfere with the creative vision!
A few days after that, an unknown source from the set of the film leaked some things onto the internet, including two minutes of the bed scene Ruan Tian and Shao Chengyue had filmed.
“My keyboard feels like it’s on fire, I’m going to write so much about the both of them.”
“In the beginning, I never saw their potential as a CP. But after watching this two minute clip I suddenly sense the romantic tension between them.”
“F**k! There’s no way the emotions in that clip can be faked. They’re clearly in love with each other!”
“Shao Chengyue had always been one of Ruan Tian’s rare true friends from the entertainment circle. Whenever she has a new drama or variety show he always helps her by forwarding and promoting it with his social media accounts. And he has also taken the initiative to speak up for her many times, even when everyone else was against her.”
“Oh my god, this is finally it. The real CP, the story of the beautiful fairy who falls in love after divorce.”
“I’ve already started to write.”
Before promotion for the movie even began, the RuanTianXShaoChengyue CP unexpectedly started to blow up and their fans started digging around and trying to find all the places where the two stars had intersected in the past.
They pulled out behind-the-scenes clips from the projects that Ruan Tian and Shao Chengyue had worked on together and watched them over and over. Eventually, the netizens found that it seemed that the two of them actually had a really good relationship.
Shao Chengyue was usually a very taciturn person, but whenever he was around Ruan Tian he would not be so silent. The obvious difference in the way he treated Ruan Tian compared to how he treated other people made the netizens feel even more convinced that they had dug out the truth.
Meanwhile, Qin Yu was in a very bad mood these days. After the scene was leaked, his assistant felt that the boss seemed more gloomy than usual. He was spending a lot of time in his hotel room, seemingly brooding.
For the sake of his career, his assistant hardened his skin and bravely advised: “It’s better not to read all those messy comments online. The little girls of today are all muddled and like to talk randomly on the internet.”
Qin Yu was looking down at his phone. A particular headline had caught his eye: The couple with less “sugar” and more “Tian”.
(tl note: The Tian character (甜) in Ruan Tian’s name can mean “sweet” or “honeyed”, and I really don’t know how to translate this sort of thing into English properly, hence this line. Basically it’s like an eye-grabbing headline which uses the literal meaning of one of the characters in Ruan Tian’s name to make a pun of sorts.)
A post sticked at the top of the board read:【Regarding the couple with less “sugar” and more “Tian”, I’m looking forward to the day when the two get married. 】
Under this post, the screen was full of various fans doing everything they could to dig out every piece of interaction between Ruan Tian and Shen Chengyue and any other random details they could find.
Qin Yu sneered as he slowly scrolled through the thread. Eventually, he angrily tossed his phone aside and looked up at the secretary who tried to advise him and said, “You should take the rest of the day off. Go home.”
After the secretary left, Qin Yu left his hotel room and knocked on the door across the hall.
As it happened, Ruan Tian had been planning to go to dinner with the director so she had dressed up a bit and put on light makeup and was getting ready to go out just when Qin Yu knocked.
To her surprise, as soon as she opened the door of her hotel room, she immediately bumped into Qin Yu. She put on a solemn face and asked, “Boss Qin, have you changed your profession and are now a doorman?”
Qin Yu stood in front of her and blocked the door, then asked, “Where are you going?”
Ruan Tian craned her neck to look him in the eye and said, “I’ll go out when I want to go out. It has nothing to do with you.”
Qin Yu caught her by the wrist and said, “That won’t do. I still have something to trouble you with.”
Ruan Tian’s eyes were suddenly open wide like a rabbit, and she felt very alert. She replied, “Since it’s trouble, you don’t need to bring it to me.”
Qin Yu took two steps forward, entering the room, then closed the door behind him. He reached up with one hand and began to pull off his tie, and slowly said: “Since Teacher Ruan likes to shoot bed scenes so much, today I’ve come to teach you how to shoot them properly.”
After a pause, he chuckled, “After all, your performance was really bad.”
Ruan Tian could only sense one thing from all these words – a strong smell of vinegar.
