Ji Yi snapped back to her senses.
He Jichen probably called for Lin Ya... Could it possibly be that Lin Ya's phone ran out of battery, so he called her dorm room because he couldn't get ahold of her?
Ji Yi answered with a calm sneer and asked, "Excuse me, are you looking for Lin Ya?"
Nothing came from the other side of the phone.
Does he not want to speak because I picked up the call?
Ji Yi waited for about a minute before she spoke again, "Lin Ya's not here right now. When she gets back, I'll tell her to call you. If there's nothing else, then I'll..."
Before Ji Yi could say "... hang up", He Jichen cut the call. Ji Yi was met with a hangup tone.
Lin Ya, Bo He, and Tang Huahua didn't return to the dorm room until Ji Yi was almost asleep.
Having been woken up, she groggily sat up in her bed and said in a raspy voice, "Xiao Ya, did you not have any battery on your phone?"
"No, what's up?"
"Tonight..." Ji Yi hesitated for a moment as she swallowed the words "He Jichen" and changed them to "...your boyfriend called the landline looking for you."
"He Dage?" asked Lin Ya in return.
Ji Yi let out a "Yeah".
After overhearing their conversation, Bo He casually picked up the phone and checked the call logs. "Huh, it was at ten in the evening. Wasn't he with us at the time?"
Lin Ya paused as she put her hair up in a ponytail.
He Jichen made plans with her to go to the outdoor party together, but just as they arrived at the venue, he dropped her, Bo He, and Tang Huahua off. He didn't even get out the car as he said farewell and left.
In the evening, she called him to ask when he was coming. He told her "later", so she waited until ten before he eventually showed up.
She pestered himand talked to him a lot, but he wasn't really responsive.
Naturally, she was a little unhappy, so she eventually quieted down too. In the end, he deliberately asked for the phone number to her dorm room.
He has my cell number, so why did he need the number to my dorm room?
She was curious, but since she was afraid of annoying him, she didn't dare ask. Instead, she gave it to him obediently.
Who knew that he'd actually turn around and call the dorm looking for me...
She was sitting next to him at the time, so he definitely wasn't looking for her. There were only four people in the dorm room, three of which were at the party. Ji Yi was the only one not there.
Lin Ya couldn't help but tense up her hand in the middle of tying up her hair, but her voice was soft and smooth as satin as she said, "He Dage asked for our dorm number, so I added it to his phone for laughs. He deliberately saved our number as his home phone number, then when he actually wanted to call his home phone, he accidentally called the wrong number."
"Oh so that's what happened..." Bo He and Tang Huahua dismissed the matter and took their time to freshen up.
Ji Yi, who was dead tired, laid in bedand shut her eyes.
Lin Ya stood in place for a long while before she tied her hair up with a hairband. Then, she turned to look over at Ji Yi lying in bed.
Without so much as a blink of an eye, she stared at Ji Yi sleeping for quite some time before she grabbed her makeup remover and walked into the bathroom.
