As that thought flashed across Ji Yi's mind, her fingers shook as she held her chopsticks, causing her to accidentally flick the food from her plate onto "He Yuguang"'s plate.
He instinctively looked up from his food towards Ji Yi.
Ji Yi was afraid that "He Yuguang" would catch on to how she felt from the expression on her face, so before his eyes could meet hers, she quickly looked down at the leftover food on her plate.
She tried to look nonchalant as she picked up her food and resumed eating.
He Jichen glanced over at Ji Yi. Seeing as everything was normal, he didn't pay much attention to what happened. He casually looked away and continued to eat his food.
Ji Yi waited for her roaring heart to calm down slightly then she raised her eyelids and sneaked a peek at "He Yuguang."
He drank his coffee with a warm expression on his face as though he hadn't noticed her accident just now.
When Ji Yi's anxious heart finally settled down, she put her chopsticks down as she was full from the meal. She stared over at "He Yuguang" for two seconds and said in low voice, "Yuguang Ge, I'm actually fine. You really didn't have to come all this way."
He Jichen drank his coffee leisurely then put the cup down to grab his phone from the table. His fingers moved a few times then he handed Ji Yi the phone.
After taking the phone, she looked at the three lonely words on the screen: "Worried about you."
Ji Yi's fingers trembled for a moment, causing the phone to fall from her hands and crash onto the floor.
In a panic, she hastily picked up her phone and held it tightly as she glanced up at "He Yuguang." When her eyes met his, she couldn't help but look away.
His three words were too blunt - they were so blunt that Ji Yi didn't know how to respond. Her gaze faltered for a moment before she forced herself to regain some composure and she pretended to smile calmly. "Anyway, Yuguang Ge, I still have to thank you. I ..."
Mid-speech, Ji Yi suddenly didn't quite know how to continue. She felt her heart race faster as though it was going to burst out of her chest. She then suddenly caught a glimpse of the bed from the corner of her eye and she thought about how he rushed there overnight, so he probably hadn't gotten any rest. An idea suddenly came to mind, and she continued by saying, "...I slept for a really long time, so I've slept enough. Yuguang Ge, you must've not had a good night's rest, rushing over here last night. Now that you've eaten, how about you go freshen up and get some rest?"
He Jichen didn't refuse Ji Yi's kind gesture and responded with a soft "Mm." He picked up the cup of coffee from the table and drank it all before getting up to go to the bathroom.
After freshening up, He Jichen walked out dressed in comfortable clothes. He glanced over at Ji Yi in silence and fell right into bed in exhaustion. He pulled the covers over his body and fell asleep soon after.
Ji Yi didn't dare watch TV in fear that she'd wake up "He Yuguang" from his sleep, so she simply pulled up "Three Thousand Lunatics" and read it from start to finish.
After staying in the same position while reading for a long time, Ji Yi also felt a little tired.
She put down her phone and rubbed her sore neck. Her eyes involuntarily fell on "He Yuguang" who was deep asleep on the bed.
