He Jichen stepped into the elevator. With no regard to whether there were other people behind him, he pressed the button to close the doors.
The elevators stopped at the underground parking lot, and just as the doors opened halfway, he stepped out.
He figured his mind must've burst with rage by the videos from the WeChat group as he circled the parking lot several times around but couldn't remember where he parked his car. Eventually, he pulled out his car keys and clicked the button to unlock it. In the distance, he saw his car lights blink, which was when he realized that his car was parked right in front of the elevators.
He Jichen got into the car, and without even strapping on his seatbelt, he immediately stepped on the gas and raced out of the underground parking lot of the Golden Lounge.
He realized the background in the video looked very familiar - it was the Yue Yuan he had been to a few times.
As soon as He Jichen drove onto the main road, he immediately turned the car around and headed straight for Yue Yuan.
After toasting every last person in the room, Ji Yi's resilient heart finally relaxed slightly.
She fought the turbulent feeling in her stomach that made her want to vomit, and with trembling fingers, she slowly put the glass back down on the table.
Her tolerance to alcohol was neither good or bad. Not only did the alcohol Lin Zhengyi forced her to drink tonight make her feel completely drunk, if she stayed there, she'd inevitably end up muddled. By then, she would undoubtedly be fish meat on a chopping board for Lin Zhengyi to pick at will.
At that thought, Ji Yi glanced back to look at Lin Zhengyi, who was clinking glasses with the producer. When he finally put the glass down, she went over to him and whispered, "Mr. Lin, I drank the wine as you wanted. Can you give me some of your time now?"
Lin Zhengyi's seemed stunned as he turned to shoot a glance at Ji Yi. Then he continued to casually pour the wine.
Ji Yi clearly caught a flash of astonishment across Lin Zhengyi's face just now.
She furrowed her brows, but before she could react to his astonishment, he raised the wine bottle and started to pour wine into her glass when he saw she'd finished her glass. "Come, Xiao Yi. You just drank to everyone here but me. Now, let's both drink a glass."
When Ji Yi heard this, she sluggishly turned around.
As it turned out, Lin Zhengyi's real objective was not only to put her in a difficult position but to get her completely drunk to make things easier for him.
So, if I'm not completely drunk on the table tonight, Lin Zhengyi won't give me a chance to talk to him alone...
Ji Yi looked down and stared at the glass before she picked it up and drank all of it with Lin Zhengyi.
The moment she put the glass down, Ji Yi deliberately loosened her grip and pretended to have had one too many to drink. Since she didn't hold onto the glass properly, it smashed to the ground.
She copied how drunk people looked on TV then slurred the words "Sorry," as she sneakily glanced at Lin Zhengyi. She realized the man had a malevolent smile at the corner of his mouth. That was when Ji Yi knew Lin Zhengyi's true objective.
Wine, she couldn't drink any longer.
But she had to keep up her drunken act.
Ji Yi quietly schemed for a moment before she said, a little tongue-tied, "Mr. Lin, I-I'm going to the restroom."
With that, Ji Yi got up swaying and walked towards the opposite direction of the restroom.
The waitress standing nearby heard what she just said and kindly reminded her, "Miss, the restroom is over there."
