The attendant was probably startled by He Jichen's successive orders as she stood there hugging the bed sheets. As she stared at He Jichen in a daze for a couple seconds, she replied with a "yes," and scurried out of Ji Yi's room.
Not long after, the attendant came running back with fresh sheets and two other attendants behind her.
The attendants had probably worked in the hotel for a long time now because as soon as they entered the room, it took just over ten short minutes to respectively finish their tasks; one changed the bed sheets, another changed the rug, and the other cleaned the floor with disinfectant. The entire room was like new.
Just as the attendants were about to leave, He Jichen asked the first attendant to stop and wait by the side. He Jichen walked over the shining floorboards to the door and stopped in front of Qian Ge.
The brows of the man who had been calm all this time instantly grew stern as he said with a menacingly quiet voice: "It's not up to you to say whether she's a qualified actress or not! Don't think that I have no idea about the little games you've been playing behind the scenes. You were the one who forced her to take such dramatic actions today!"
"I'm warning you! You better watch yourself! If there's ever a next time, I won't speak as nicely to you as I've done today!"
Qian Ge gently shuddered as a string of tears streamed down her face and flowed down.
She knew that the man in front of her definitely did this on purpose and he knew it! The most regretful experience of her life was being scolded in front of Ji Yi, and he deliberately wanted her to never get her way!
It was her mistake to think that he would be mad at Ji Yi instead and she'd get the chance to watch her get embarrassed after He Jichen overheard their conversation. She never thought this man could see through her trap!
Even if she was looking for trouble, she couldn't let Ji Yi have it so easy!
At that thought, Qian Ge gritted her teeth even harder and stared fiercely at Ji Yi. Then she took a step forward, drew closer to He Jichen's ear and whispered, "For you to protect her like that - isn't it painful for you deep down? Three years ago when she was in a coma from the car accident, you threw away your whole life for her. You cared so much about her safety, but what about her? She took what you cared most about and turned it into a weapon to scheme against me. She even tricked you after you panicked on set"
Ji Yi hadn't heard what Qian Ge said, but she knew Qian Ge must've said something awful because she saw He Jichen's fingertips silently clench into fists after hearing her words.
His fists trembled slightly as though he was heavily suppressing his feelings inside.
Just when Ji Yi thought He Jichen would burst into anger, he miraculously calmed down. Then, as though avoiding something dirty, he took a step back and put some distance between him and Qian Ge. With the same arrogant, patronizing voice, he said, "Didn't you just say you wanted Ji Yi to give you an explanation?"
She thought I didn't see through her little scheme?
She wanted to use me to mock Ji Yi? Are you kidding me? No matter how angry I get, I would never let her get her way!
At that thought, He Jichen spoke again with a tone that implied Qian Ge had overestimated her abilities. "Let me tell you this As long as I, He Jichen live, she, Ji Yi, doesn't need to give you any explanations!"
