He Jichen's incoherent words stunned Ji Yi, so she asked, "What?"
He Jichen's eyelids drifted over to the trash can, "Why is there so much blood there?"
That was when Ji Yi came to her senses and hastily explained, "I've been having nosebleeds. I've been dehydrated these few days, so my nose bled."
He Jichen's fingers around the glass suddenly tightened.
It wasn't like he didn't pay attention to her on set. What's more, every now and then, he shot her a mindful glance. Filming was an exhausting and tough process, so there were many actors and actresses who drank some water as soon as they finished filming. When she first joined the cast, she did the same, but she started drinking very little water about half a month ago.
He too was puzzled as to why she never drank water. It wasn't until today when he heard what the wardrobe assistant said that he finally understood everything.
It wasn't that she didn't want to drink, it was that she didn't dare to drink because of the risk of someone messing with her water. There were many people from the cast and crew who looked annoyed that day when she messed up during her shoot. She was afraid there would be a repeat episode, so just to be cautious, she chose not to drink. In turn, this caused her to become dehydrated and get nosebleeds
The fury he suppressed with great difficulty on his drive back to the hotel was now coming back.
He was angry with Qian Ge, but he was even angrier with himself.
She had him on her side, so why was she still suffering?
After Ji Yi heard He Jichen's two questions, he stood there holding the glass of water as still as a statue. He looked deep in thought.
Ji Yi waited for a while, but seeing as he didn't look like he was going to snap out of his daze, she deliberately cleared her throat.
He Jichen raised his head in shock and shot her a glance. Then he walked over to her bedside, carrying the glass of water.
Ji Yi took the glass, looked up at He Jichen and muttered, "Thank you." She then accidentally met the man's gaze. From his eyes, she could see a sliver of indistinct anger.
Is he angry? Who pissed him off?
Ji Yi, who had personally seen He Jichen in a fit of rage many times over, suddenly became cautious. She was afraid that He Jichen would take out his anger on her the next second.
The man stood unwaveringly by the bedside with his cold expression.
He reached his hand out after she finished drinking her water.
When he put the glass back on the table, He Jichen saw two boxes of instant noodles on the ground.
One of the boxes hadn't been opened yet, whereas the other box had just two packs left.
The wardrobe assistant said that since she joined the cast, she hadn't eaten any lunch boxes on set even though He Jichen deliberately got the floor runner to order some of her favorite foods She actually ate instant noodles every day instead?
He Jichen was so angry that he instinctively tensed his fingers. Having forgotten that he had a glass in his hand, he crushed the glass cup.
The shards of glass stabbed his palms, but it wasn't like he felt anything. The anger in his brows grew fiercer.
Ji Yi heard a noise and instinctively turned her head to find that He Jichen's hand was dripping with blood. She abruptly sat up in her bed and accidentally pulled on her wound. The pain forced her to inhale a cold breath of air. After a short while, she called his name: "Director He"
When he heard her voice, He Jichen's body shook for a moment, but he didn't turn his head. Instead, his gaze continued to stare unwaveringly at the two boxes of instant noodles.
