Even though "He Yuguang" appeared for just one night and day, Ji Yi still felt empty inside as she stepped into the elevator.
She actually didn't want to let him go. In this world, there was nobody who didn't want to be with a person who was incredibly considerate and treated them incredibly well.
But she couldn't let him suffer or trouble him by making him stay in Lijiang with her, right?
Most importantly, she had been forcing herself to put some distance between them. If it wasn't for what happened with Lin Ya, if she hadn't twisted her ankle, and if he hadn't rushed there overnight, the two of them wouldn't have spent a whole day and night alone together...
She wasn't stupid; she clearly felt herself fall irresistibly harder for him in just one day and night.
The confused feelings she felt for him were far stronger than when she was younger.
She was really afraid - afraid that she would lose control and fall in love with him without a second thought, so she pretended like her foot was fine to allow him to leave without worrying.
Yes...Fall in love.
No matter how she felt about him when she was young, now that she thought back on it, it was just puppy-love.
But now, the feeling she had deep down inside was true love.
The way she felt about him was completely different from the past.
It was the same person, and it was just four years difference, so how could her feelings be so drastically different?
Ji Yi slightly furrowed her brows. Having not recovered from her confusion and bewilderment, her heart was engulfed by sadness and frustration.
If only he wasn't He Jichen's older brother, how great would that be... She wouldn't need to worry so much - if she loved him, she could do it openly...
Four years ago, she couldn't ignore the mistake she and He Jichen made that night, and it stopped her from following her heart with He Yuguang.
When the elevator doors opened, Ji Yi stood there foolishly for a while before she came out.
She didn't know how she made her way to the door of her hotel room, nor how she managed to swipe her room key to open the door... in brief, when she snapped back to her senses, she was sitting on the sofa in a daze.
Had He Yuguang not appeared, she wouldn't feel this lonely travelling by herself. Now, in the hotel room, whenever she looked over at the desk, she would remember how he worked there last night. When she looked over at the sofa, she would remember that he slept there before. When she looked at the bracelet on her wrist, she would remember that he gave it to her... Ji Yi's mood became instantly gloomy.
Ji Yi's ankle wasn't better yet, so she couldn't go out. Instead, she hugged a pillow comfortably on the sofa while watching television.
It looked like she was watching TV, but she actually didn't know what was on. It was only when housekeeping came in to help her clean up that she realized she'd been watching the shopping channel for half the day.
She hastily grabbed the remote control, changed the channel, then stared straight at the television.
The housekeeper cleaned up very carefully, quietly, never disturbing Ji Yi.
After the housekeeper replaced the bed sheets, she walked into the bathroom. She was busy working inside for about ten minutes before she suddenly came out. "Miss, is this yours? I found this on the tissue box in the bathroom."
Ji Yi turned her head when she heard the housekeeper.
"This looks pretty expensive," continued the housekeeper as she handed the object in their hand over to Ji Yi.
