A Billion Stars Can't Amount To You Chapter 123


Chapter 123: Keeping the Whole World in the Dark About Loving You (2)

He was watching a video. From the video resolution and color, she could tell the video was considerably old.

The background in the video looked familiar. Ji Yi instinctively averted her gaze, but before she did, she saw where the video was shot. The girl in the red clothes caught her attention.

She didn't manage to take a good look at her face, but just a glance was enough for Ji Yi to figure out that the young girl in the red clothes was her younger self.

So "He Yuguang" isn't busy with work, but he's watching videos of me when I was younger... What's more, it's been so many years. Has he been keeping these old videos all this time?

Ji Yi's heart skipped two beats.

When she was about to calm down and take a closer look, "He Yuguang" finally sensed someone standing beside him. He turned his head slightly as his line of sight landed on her face. He looked evidently tense and suddenly raised his hand to reflexively cover the computer screen.

He Jichen wasn't certain if Ji Yi saw the video he saved of her younger self, so he felt slightly flustered. After a second, he was back to normal and looked at the cup of tea Ji Yi just put down. He grabbed his phone as though nothing happened, typed a few words, and put the phone in front of Ji Yi. "Manman, how come you're in here?"

Ji Yi could tell that "He Yuguang" was hiding the video he was just watching. She didn't want to expose him, so she simply smiled and replied, "I took a walk and came back home. I coincidentally saw Ayi 1 make you a cup of tea, so I thought I might as well bring it to you."

He Jichen gave a gentle nod, took his phone back and continued to type: "Do you feel a little better?"

"Lots better."

Even though Ji Yi replied like that, He Jichen still got up and reached his hand out to feel her forehead. After he confirmed that she didn't have a high temperature, he then went back and grabbed his phone. He continued to type: "Have you taken your medicine?"

"Not yet..." Ji Yi paused and said, "...I'll go take it now."

He Jichen nodded gently but didn't type anything.

Ji Yi suddenly remembered that she wanted to thank him. "Yuguang Ge, thank you for last night."

He Jichen knew Ji Yi was talking about when he took care of her all night long when she couldn't wake up from her fever... Oh, no, she probably thinks it was He Yuguang... He Jichen lowered his eyes to cover up the loneliness in his eyes. The next second, he plastered on He Yuguang's smile from the video and gently curved his lips. With a warm smile, he gradually shook his head as if to say "you don't have to thank me."

The study was silent for a moment. After a while, Ji Yi pointed at the door. "Then Yuguang Ge, continue with what you were doing. I'll take off first to take my medicine."

He Jichen nodded and saw Ji Yi out with his eyes. He waited for her to close the door then diverted his eyes back to the computer again.
