Although she was in a complete haze, she knew someone was kissing her softly. She forced her eyes open and saw He Yuguang's face.
It hurt and she felt shy, but she was overjoyed all the same. She didn't dare make a sound that night, but in the end, she couldn't help but cry his name out, "Yuguang."
It wasn't until she woke up that she realized it wasn't all a dream. She felt flustered but also a little thrilled.
Since He Yuguang took such good care of her that night, she questioned whether it meant he liked her too. However, she waited and waited but didn't receive any messages from He Yuguang. She thought maybe He Yuguang felt too weak so he didn't reach out to her, so she then took the initiative to meet up with him.
She never forgot that night she went to confess to himhow "He Yuguang" stood right in front of her and how her world crumbled suddenly when he spoke!
Never in a million years could she have imagined that the person standing in front of her was actually He Jichen.
Also, she never dared to imagine that the person she got involved with that night was also actually He Jichen.
She clearly sent the text to He Yuguang, so how was He Jichen the one who showed up? Afterwards, she flipped through her phone and realized that the text she sent to He Yuguang was merely saved as a draft and was never sent out...
So everything... she got all of it wrong.
She slept with her most treasured friend, while the person she liked was the older brother of her most important friend.
Her world was plunged into chaos in an instant. She didn't know how she was going to face He Yugugang, nor did she want anything to do with He Jichen. Left with no options, the only road she could take was to run away... run away from Sucheng, run away from He Yuguang and He Jichen, and run away from this absurd nightmare!
As time went by, the confused feelings she had for He Yuguang when she was young faded away. However, the pain she felt four years ago was still there. Especially, the hurtful words He Jichen said that night when he tore her clothes... they rang crystal clear in her ears. Every time she thought about it, it always made her lose her mind.
The phone in her hands suddenly started to vibrate. "Ding dong!"
Ji Yi hurriedly snapped back to her senses and looked back at the phone screen.
It seemed like He Yuguang didn't wait for her reply and sent another message: "Manman, it's me, He Yuguang. Do you still remember me?"
Ji Yi unlocked her phone, tapped on the screen a few times, and sent the message: "Yuguang Ge, long time no see."
"It's been a long time since we last spoke. I came to Beijing to see Jichen, and I remembered that you're also in Beijing, so I asked Jichen for your number. When are you free? Let's meet up."
If this was four years ago right after the ludicrous incident between her and He Jichen, Ji Yi definitely couldn't face He Yuguang, but now, thankfully those emotions from when they were young already faded and her scars disappeared. With He Yuguang's message, she only viewed him as a friend she hadn't seen for a long time.
Ji Yi accepted the idea of meeting He Yuguang and swiftly replied: "Sure, Yuguang Ge! Whenever is fine; you choose a time and place and send me the details."
The next day in the afternoon, Ji Yi got a text from He Yuguang with the time and location of the meetup: "Tonight at seven. Second floor cafe of the Four Seasons Hotel."
