That's right. In private, Lin Zhengyi could mess around however he liked, but the things he said in the recording could never fall in anyone else's hands. If it was leaked, he would get caught up in an endless amount of trouble.
No wonder he boldly suggested that Ji Yi give him new terms; he wanted the recording in his possession.
Lin Zhengyi had worked in the business industry for many years, and to have survived all this time, he was naturally extremely knowledgeable. Ji Yi couldn't have used her beauty to make Lin Zhengyi obey her like this, so the key was this recording pen in his hands...
As that thought flashed across He Jichen's mind, everything that transpired in the past two days swiftly came to mind too.
Last night, Ji Yi and Lin Zhengyi had dinner together.
That same night, Lin Zhengyi contacted YC Corp to reinvest in "Three Thousand Lunatics."
Tonight, Lin Zhengyi, whose investment was rejected, came looking for Ji Yi in a panic to talk about new conditions...
All of sudden, He Jichen completely froze like someone hit his pressure points. He silently realized something.
Perhaps... perhaps he had gotten it all wrong. Ji Yi didn't see Lin Zhengyi last night to get a role in "Dust," but she went to...
He Jichen didn't dare speculate, because he felt if he did, it'd turn into some kind of wild story.
Ji Yi... How could Ji Yi go looking for Lin Zhengyi about the lost investment for "Three Thousand Lunatics"... She knew "Three Thousand Lunatics" was his series. She rejected him so much...
Even if he didn't believe it, Lin Zhengyi's text was crystal clear...
He Jichen held his breath as he couldn't help but tighten his grasp on the recording pen. An indescribable sense of powerlessness and panic suddenly engulfed his whole body.
If it was any other day, he would love that she had done something like this for him, but in that very moment, he was afraid. He was afraid she really went to see Lin Zhengyi for him...
Ji Yi didn't sleep all night the night before, so this time, she fell in a deep sleep for a long time.
When she finally woke up, the sky outside were bright. The bright rays of sunlight illuminated the entire city, making it look surreal.
She stayed in bed for some time before she finally climbed out and walked into the bathroom.
In the mirror, she stared at every little mark He Jichen left on her body as his eyes turned dark the previous night.
She didn't dare think too much of it and quickly pushed the thought to the back of her mind. She dried herself off and went to get changed into a conservative set of clothes in the change room. Having wrapped herself up tightly, she then walked back into the bathroom, grabbed her phone, and walked out the door.
"He Yuguang" was already awake. He was sitting on the sofa and reading the news.
There was a hired helper cleaning the house. Seeing Ji Yi come out, she shot her a beaming smile and said, "Madam, shall I prepare some food for you?"
Ji Yi nodded gently and said, "Thank you." When the the helper walked into the kitchen, she then sat on the sofa and greeted "He Yuguang": "Good morning, Yuguang Ge."
"He Yuguang"'s dark circles under his eyes exposed how he didn't sleep well last night. His phone probably wasn't on him, so he only shot her a smile because there was no other way for him to communicate with her.
After Ji Yi sat down, she glanced over at "He Yuguang" who was reading the news. Then she unlocked the phone in her hands.
To her surprise, there were dozens of unread text messages.
