Just as she walked up to the door, before she could even reach her hand out to open the door, it suddenly swung open with a hard kick from the outside.
Ji Yi was so frightened that she took two abrupt steps back to just avoid getting smacked in the face by the wooden doors.
She let out a cold breath of air in a panic before she looked up, slightly angry. She was about to ask the person who kicked the door "What are you doing?", but the words never came. Instead, she stared at the arrogant person in an all-black ensemble at the door for a long while.
The expression on the man's face was as distant and cold as usual. His fine facial features were breathtaking and he was frighteningly handsome under the lights from the corridors.
He stared deeply into her eyes with a killer charisma, but all that Ji Yi was focused on was a trace of sternness which gave her an immense trembling fear.
An air of danger silently crept into Ji Yi's heart and she instinctively lowered her head to avoid his gaze. From the corner of her eyes, she caught a glimpse of the man's red string on his wrist, and that was when she woke up a little.
It was He Jichen. Why... is he here?
The thought hadn't settled in Ji Yi's mind when she felt He Jichen, who was standing at the door, finally move.
She instinctively looked down and saw his transfixed gaze upon her as he drew closer, one step at a time.
As he drew closer, Ji Yi clearly felt a threateningly cold air coming from his body.
Ji Yi's fingertips trembled and she was about to take two steps back to keep some distance between her and He Jichen, when he suddenly reached his arm out and pointed at Lin Zhengyi behind her.
His actions were simple, yet there was a dangerous air pouring out from his body.
Ji Yi thought he was immediately going to start cursing, but to her surprise, he didn't say anything. He merely pointed at Lin Zhengyi up and down. The next second, his hand moved over to Ji Yi's side. Without giving any time for Ji Yi to react, he grabbed her wrist and dragged her out.
He Jichen brushed past someone who knew him at Yue Yuan and greeted him politely.
With a cold expression on his face, he ignored everyone around him and blindly dragged Ji Yi down the long and winding corridors, then out the doors.
His strides were long and fast, so Ji Yi, who stumbled behind him in her heels, almost tripped several times.
He grabbed her frighteningly tightly on her wrists, and it felt as though her bones were being crushed. It hurt so much that Ji Yi's teeth were left chattering.
The doorman at the entrance of Yue Yuan saw He Jichen come out and immediately handed him his car keys. "Mr. He, your car is..."
Before the doorman could finish, He Jichen snatched his keys and headed right for the parking lot nearby while taking large strides and dragging Ji Yi along with him.
As he reached his car, He Jichen pulled the car door open and forcefully shoved Ji Yi in. The door slammed shut.
He used such force that the car door created a loud slamming sound. Having been shoved into the car seat, Ji Yi still hadn't snapped back to reality when she heard the sound of a door in the front open.
Ji Yi raised her head and saw He Jichen get into the driver's seat.
Before she even saw him start up the car, the car sped off at an alarming speed.
Without a seatbelt on, she toppled forward.
