If he truly believed her, why would she need to explain herself?
Before she let any words slip out, Ji Yi suddenly realized just how incredibly funny the situation was.
After all, she was too soft-hearted. Seeing how he brought her home that night from Lin Zhengyi's clutches, she had a change of heart about him. After she heard those stories about his current plight, she was full of guilt and felt sorry for him.
What's more, she clearly knew Lin Zhengyi was scheming against her, yet she still went straight into the lion's den with the recordings just to win his investment back.
She never spoke so softly and submissively or let someone force her to drink so much before. After she woke up from the car accident, she never thought of using dishonest methods to return to the entertainment industry. Instead, she patiently waited for over half a year for the right opportunity.
In an instant, Ji Yi's mood became slightly complicated.
She refused to be taken so lightly by He Jichen. She was upset over being mistaken as a traitor by him, and she felt wronged after being indiscriminately treated like that by him.
The bitterness in her eye grew more fierce, but she stubbornly refused to cry in front of him.
Compared to how flustered and afraid she was when she witnessed He Jichen's scathing anger in the past, she wasn't actually that scared at this very moment. In fact, she stared unwaveringly into He Jichen's eyes that were a thousand times colder than the dead of winter.
In any case, she was already worthless in his heart, so there was nothing to worry about.
At that thought, Ji Yi went ahead and said to He Jichen, "Yeah, since I saw that nothing was happening with 'Three Thousand Lunatics,' I went to find Lin Zhengyi to see if he could give me a role. He can give me whatever role I want, so why wouldn't I look for him?"
He Jichen's eyes squinted slightly as an aura of violence poured out from his body.
Ji Yi felt his fingers on her chin start to tremble. She knew he was furious, yet she scoffed as she spoke with no hint of stopping, "You asked since I stayed with him, why couldn't I let you touch me? You can, Mr. He, but I want to know what role you can give me? What perks can you offer me?"
He Jichen was so angry that his lips quivered, but he was also completely paralyzed; he couldn't say a word.
Ji Yi gave an even more charming and sweet smile as her voice turned gentle. She said, "Mr. He, now we can chat, and once we finish talking, however you want me to be of service to you, I'll do it..."
All of a sudden, He Jichen gripped her chin frighteningly hard. The pain stopped Ji Yi from finishing her sentence.
In a rage, He Jichen looked unexpectedly emotionless as he stared at Ji Yi with bloodshot eyes. She had no idea what he was going to say as the words seemed to build up in his mouth. Then, as though he was itching to ferociously peel her skin off, he said, "You want to make a deal? Do you really think I care about you? If it weren't..."
He Jichen paused for a moment, then he had a sudden thought and continued by saying, "... If I wasn't asked to help you, I never would've even bothered with you! I'm telling you, I never mess with prostitutes because I think they're dirty..."
Mess with prostitutes... think they're dirty... Ji Yi's fingers quivered. She didn't wait for He Jichen to finish before she interrupted him on her own tangent.
