Ji Yi's mind rang continuously with He Jichen's words that Li Da shared with her over the phone: "Impossible. I've waited so long for this day, only to get so close. I can't just give up!"
Li Da said he thought He Jichen was referring to his dream of becoming a director.
To chase his dream, he gave up on his prestigious school, gave up on his grand future, and started from the bottom again at B-Film...
Even if He Jichen really did it for Yuguang Ge, she didn't want him to make such grave sacrifices behind the scenes!
Since everything started with her, it should end with her too!
Ji Yi stood quietly on the spot as her eyes fell to the watch on her wrist.
She silently stared at it for a moment then took it off and put it close to her ear. After listening to it for some time, she walked out of He Jichen's neighborhood.
Ji Yi didn't return to the university but went straight to a nearby electronics store and bought a recording pen. She transferred a recording to the recording pen and started to type a text asking for Lin Zhengyi's contact information.
After some time, Ji Yi got Lin Zhengyi's WeChat ID from Xu Yi.
Ji Yi didn't hesitate at all before adding Lin Zhengyi as a friend.
After about a minute, Lin Zhengyi accepted Ji Yi's friend request. She swiftly tapped a string of text on the phone and sent it out: "Hello, Chief Lin. It's Ji Yi. I have something I'd like to speak with you about. Could you please let me know when you're available?"
After some time, Ji Yi received Lin Zhengyi's reply: "Tonight, I have a dinner at Yue Yuan. If you need to see me, you'll find me there."
Ji Yi didn't reply. As she walked over to the sidewalk, she hailed a taxi and gave the driver the address for Yue Yuan.
There was a minivan parked on the road opposite.
Qian Ge didn't reply but stared at where Ji Yi was just standing through the window.
Could it be that Ji Yi was in He Jichen's neighborhood to look for him just like me?
But if she went to look for He Jichen, why'd she buy a recording pen from the electronics store?
She held her phone and stood by the side of the road for such a long time before she left. Is she taking the pen somewhere?
The driver didn't receive any response from Qian Ge so he prompted her, "Qian Jie?"
After a few seconds, Qian Ge snapped back to her senses as her eyes continued to stare at the same spot. She replied flatly, "Not back to the company. Turn around and follow that taxi."
