After the car stopped outside He Jichen's apartment, Ji Yi paid and got out of the car. Just when she was about to enter the apartment building, she saw He Jichen come out with someone trailing behind him.
It was the person Ji Yi didn't want to see the most... Qian Ge.
Why's Qian Ge here?
Ji Yi suddenly stopped walking, and a second later, she understood.
That's right... Qian Ge has liked He Jichen since she was young. Back then, I even helped Qian Ge and He Jichen meet in a grove at Sucheng Yizhong. Now, since He Jichen's gotten into this kind of trouble, Qian Ge's here to take care of him?
Ji Yi saw the two of them walk in her direction. She hurriedly snapped back to her senses and looked left and right. Taking advantage of the fact that the two of them hadn't seen her yet, she quickly hid behind a parked car.
"He Jichen, I've said so much already. Have you been listening?" Ji Yi heard Qian Ge say anxiously just as she took cover.
She was met with silence.
He Jichen must've sped upJi Yi heard the hurried stomps of Qian Ge's high heels which sounded like a light jog.
Deep down, Ji Yi was so curious, so she discreetly poked her head out a little. She saw Qian Ge pull on He Jichen's sleeve and block his path.
Before Qian Ge said anything, He Jichen furrowed his brows with a hint of impatience. "I have nothing to say to you. Please leave!"
Qian Ge acted like she didn't hear what He Jichen said as she tightened her grip on his sleeve. "He Jichen, Lin Zhengyi isn't stupid. It's hard to come by a script like the 'Three Thousand Lunatics.' He's a businessman, so being part of the project would bring him enormous returns. He didn't really want to pull his investment; he just wants some face by having Ji Yi personally apologize to him! He's doing this just to give himself a way out, but you won't let him, so he was forced to pull his investment. Hence, that's why the situation turned out like this..."
Lin Zhengyi wants me to personally apologize to him? How come I didn't know about this?
Ji Yi's brows furrowed slightly and two seconds later, she realized what He Jichen meant over the phone after breakfast the day after it happened. He said: "He wishes! Make her personally go apologize to him? In his dreams! Tell him to go die!"
So that day, I guessed right! He Jichen was on and off the phone because of the incident between me and Lin Zhengyi...
If I went to apologize to him that would fix everything, so why didn't He Jichen let me go?
Before the doubt settled in Ji Yi's mind, Qian Ge said, "The board of directors has given you your final notice. If you can't get the funding in three days, not only will 'Three Thousand Lunatics' not happen, you'll lose YC company. He Jichen, I didn't come here today to argue with you. I really want to help you, but you have to promise me that'Three Thousand Lunatics' won't be playing the supporting female character. Do this and I'll help you persuade Lin Zhengyi to invest again... invest twenty percent more than before, in fact!"
