Ji Yi knew "He Yuguang" meant he already caught a taxi from the airport. She first replied with a smiling emoji then quickly typed a reply: "Yuguang Ge, give me your address. I'll mail you the jade."
"He Yuguang" must've been on his phone as he replied swiftly: "You don't have to go through all that trouble. Keep it with you for now, and let's talk about when we see each other next."
Ji Yi replied with an "Alright." She stared at her phone screen and gently bit her bottom lip. After thinking about it for a few seconds, she nonchalantly replied with a few words: "Yuguang Ge, is the jade missing a piece?"
"He Yuguang" replied quickly as usual, with a simple: "Mhm."
Ji Yi was just about to ask "He Yuguang" what happened to it when another new message popped up on her phone: "Accidentally dropped it."
Accidentally dropped it... It's exactly as the nurse described...
Ji Yi's breaths suddenly caught in her chest. After about a good half minute, she forced herself to steady her trembling fingers. She continued to casually ask him: "You never got someone to fix it? I hear that people in the trade are really skilled; they could make it so that you can't even see the crack!"
"He Yuguang" replied: "At the time, I couldn't find the corner that broke off."
At the time...
The nurse said that the guy picked up the big piece of jade and left in a hurry. Wasn't that when he dropped it and broke off that small piece?
Is it possible that the owner of the jade is Yuguang Ge?
Ji Yi thought about it before she flipped through the photos on her phone and found a photo of "He Yuguang" and sent it to the nurse. She also added a comment: "Liang
After she was discharged from the hospital, Ji Yi hadn't really kept in contact with the nurse, so she was afraid she would've forgotten her by now. After texts were successfully sent out, she thought about it for a moment then called the nurse directly.
The nurse probably got her messages, so she immediately picked up to say, "Xiao Yi, it's him! That's him!"
Before Ji Yi could say hello, the reserved confidence in her voice became stunned.
The nurse was even more excited than she was as she chattered non-stop over the phone. "I definitely didn't remember wrong. Even though I see many people at the hospital, it's rare to see someone with such striking features, so I know I'm right. Xiao Yi, how did you find him?"
Seeing as Ji Yi didn't reply, she raised her voice and said, "Xiao Yi? Xiao Yi?"
Ji Yi snapped back to her senses a little, but still sounded a little absent-minded as she said, "En?"
"How did you find him?"
"Me?" Ji Yi's mind went blank for a moment before she realized what the nurse asked. She sounded dazed as she said, "I, I... He is an old friend..."
"Then he definitely has a crush on you, Xiao Yi. You don't often see this type of person. To actually be able to meet... Ah, you must treasure this..."
The nurse was talkative as usual - Ji Yi knew that if she didn't stop her, the nurse would talk for ten whole minutes. After the nurse spoke for a while, Ji Yi found an appropriate time to cut her off: "Liang Jie, sorry to have disturbed you. I still have some things to deal with, so I've got to go."
As soon as the call ended, Ji Yi's fingers relaxed and the phone crashed to the ground.
She didn't bother to pick it up as she hugged the cushion firmly and sat back on the sofa.
