The cigarette between He Jichen's fingers was pinched out of shape. Without so much as a glance at the wardrobe assistant, his line of sight fell on the assistant director, "Assistant director, call the police!"
The assistant director was left stunned by He Jichen's sudden instruction. "Call the police?"
"Yes! And while you're at it, call my lawyer over, take Ji Yi to check her wound, and prepare to sue in court!" When he finished saying this, He Jichen turned his head and glanced down at the wardrobe assistant who he interrupted, "Since you were the only one who touched this costume, you're the biggest suspect. Nobody has the time to listen to the entire story. Save it for the police!"
Thereafter, He Jichen turned around and headed for the stairs to pick up Ji Yi from the palace and leave.
After the wardrobe assistant heard "call the police," "lawyer," and "complaint," He Jichen hadn't even made it two steps forward before she suddenly screamed, "Director He, I didn't put the blade in there! Director He, I have nothing to do with this!"
Having not heard the answer he wanted to hear, He Jichen's footsteps didn't show the slightest hint of slowing down.
The assistant director beside him already dialed "110" according to He Jichen's instructions.
The wardrobe assistant couldn't care less about the money or getting kicked off the production team now. She just didn't want to go to the police station. Seeing as He Jichen had no intention of turning around, she raised her feet and chased after him. However, the guy took big strides, so she had to work hard to chase after him. Eventually, she ended up yelling straight out, "Director He, I really have nothing to do with this! It was Qian Ge Jie! Qian Ge Jie's assistant, Xiao Ying, messed with her costume. She was the one who tampered with her costume!"
He Jichen's feet came to a sudden stop.
The entire set instantly fell silent.
The picture seemed frozen in place. After about a good minute, all eyes fell on Qian Ge.
There were some with astonished glows in their eyes while others were filled with immense disbelief.
He Jichen had his back turned to everyone as he silently stood there for two seconds before slowly turning around. He took one step at a time on the stairs and walked back down again.
He reached the final step of the stairs and scanned the area left and right. Eventually, his line of sight stopped on Qian Ge's face.
Less than a second after he spotted her, he raised his feet and rushed over to her.
His steps weren't fast nor did he have much of an expression on his face, but the way in which he stared into Qian Ge's eyes was swift and fierce. His gaze made her want to tremble with fear.
All of a sudden, Qian Ge held her breath as she subconsciously prepared to make a run for it. However, her legs just wouldn't budge as though they were bolted to the ground.
As He Jichen drew closer, Qian Ge's heart felt heavier.
When the man stopped about half a meter away, Qian Ge clearly felt the cold air exuding from his body. Fear spread from the soles of her feet and climbed up her entire body.
He Jichen stared coldly into Qian Ge's eyes as he blurted a few simple words which gushed with destructive power. "You went that far to hurt her again?"
He Jichen's tone of voice was neither loud nor quiet, but he sounded particularlymenacing when he said the word "again."
His words were like a sudden clap of thunder which shook everyone's core.
Could that possibly mean that Qian Ge hurt Ji Yi before?
Suspicion arose in everybody's mind.
He Jichen's questioning made Qian Ge's body tremble.
