"I didn't want to drink at all, but there was nothing I could do. Lin Zhengyi said he would only talk to me alone as long as I drank all that..."
So, that was why he saw those videos of her drinking one glass after another...
And the only reason she did that was just so she could speak to Lin Zhengyi alone. She had those recordings to negotiate a trade with Lin Zhengyi for his reinvestment into "Three Thousand Lunatics."
But what about him? Not only did he misunderstand her, he even treated her so horrifically...
Despite having guessed that he made a mistake earlier yesterday night, He Jichen was unbelievably devastated and felt like a wild beast inside was tearing him apart when he heard what Ji Yi said. A sharp pain attacked every vein and cell of his.
So, unknownst to him, she really did care about him.
But her good will was brutally trampled on.
Although she never really liked to argue with him, it was no wonder that she became so sharp-tongued that night. He even thought she was really hateful to speak with such confidence. It seemed she must've been so devastated so she spoke out of anger!
No wonder when he left, she didn't want to stay a single second longer in the Four Seasons Hotel and also left.
No wonder after he spent a whole day and night looking for her, he found her sodistraught...
The more He Jichen thought about it, the more his whole body felt an unbearable pain. It became harder to breathe and his fingers trembled so much that he couldn't muster any strength.
Deep in her own train of thought, she didn't even notice how strange "He Yuguang" was. She lowered her eyes and stared at the old wooden desk for some time before continuing to say, "...I knew that if I wasn't drunk, Lin Zhengyi wouldn't let me leave the party room, so I deliberately pretended to be drunk. I was afraid he'd figure things out, and he.. he..."
Ji Yi wanted to say "molested me," but no matter how she tried, those last words couldn't come out.
He Jichen took in every last word, and though she only stopped halfway, he knew what she wanted to say in the end.
She only willingly allowed Lin Zhengyi to embarrass her because of him...
Heartache, annoyance, regret, self-blame... an infinite variety of emotions coursed through his entire body. The muscles in his hand ached with pain, causing his phone to fall through his fingers and crash hard onto the desk with a "dong!"
Ji Yi instinctively looked up and realized that "He Yuguang"'s face had turned utterly pale.
"Yuguang Ge, what's wrong?" Ji Yi completely forgot about her train of thought as she hurriedly ran over to "He Yuguang," distraught. She grabbed his arm and said, "Yuguang Ge, are you alright?"
She knew He Yuguang had always been in poor health since he was young. After asking him, she screamed out the door, "
Before Ji Yi could say "ambulance," He Jichen reached over and grabbed her hand to stop her.
Ji Yi looked down when she felt his touch.
He Jichen glanced over at Ji Yi then reached his phone out and opened the notes. With trembling fingers, he started to type.
