He Jichen had barely spoken since Ji Yi arrived.When he heard that he suddenly sneered, "You want to negotiate terms with me? Are you worthy?"
Qian Ge was stunned by He Jichen's retort as she clearly looked unsettled. It took some time for her to speak up again, and she didn't sound as confident as she did before: "I'm not here to negotiate terms. I'm wholeheartedly here to help you..."
"Wholeheartedly?" A mild chill appeared in He Jichen's eyes. For the first time since the beginning, he glanced over at Qian Ge. He turned his head slightly and looked at her with cold eyes as his voice turned low, crude and bold: "Put your fake act away and don't think I don't know Lin Zhengyi pulled his investment all because of your meddling! And don't think I don't know the true objective behind why you racked your brain so hard over this!"
When Ji Yi heard this, she understood everything.
So the only reason Lin Zhengyi pulled his investment was because Qian Ge instigated things behind the scenes. The only reason Qian Ge did this was to put He Jichen in a difficult position, to force him to kick me out of"Three Thousand Lunatics"!
But if I left the casting crew, that'd clearly solve things, so why didn't He Jichen do that?
Ji Yi furrowed her brows and lowered her eyes.
After a while, she came up with a reason: Could it be that Yuguang Ge asked him for help?
Aside from this, Ji Yi really couldn't think of another reason to explain this.
At that thought, Ji Yi raised her head again and secretly looked over at He Jichen and Qian Ge.
Qian Ge probably didn't expect He Jichen would see through everything. Her face looked vaguely awkward as she took a few deep breaths before she spoke again. "He Jichen, how could you lump me in with Lin Zhengyi and think that I'm trying to make things difficult for you? You know I'm sincere and that since I was little, I've lik-"
Ji Yi didn't need to think hard to know that Qian Ge was going to say the words "liked you."
But before Qian Ge could finish, He Jichen suddenly swung her hand away from his sleeve and took big strides past her.
He Jichen was quite heavy-handed, so Qian Ge was thrown back a few steps. She then forced herself to find her balance.
She wore a tall and thin pair of heels, so she accidentally sprained her ankle. She lowered her head and rubbed her ankle then angrily pulled out her phone and dialed a number.
After some time, Ji Yi saw Qian Ge's manager come rushing over.
Qian Ge's manager gave her a helping hand as they hobbled away together.
When Qian Ge disappeared, Ji Yi slowly got up from behind the car.
He Jichen wasn't at home anymore, so she didn't need to enter the building.
From his and Qian Ge's conversation, she could clearly tell how immense the pressure was on him.
Three days... In three days, if nothing was resolved, then everything he built all these years would go up in smoke!
