He wasn't sure if he felt regret or heartache over her almost losing her life four years ago. He Jichen furrowed his brows hard and pursed his lips tightly.
He felt like something had violently torn his heart apart. The pain made it hard for him to breathe.
He truly was a b*stard. At first, during the audition for "The Palace" when Qian Ge told him Ji Yi hadn't wanted his child and aborted the baby straight away, he actually believed it. He was actually sad about it.
He was truly repulsive. He actually had the gall to be jealous when he saw how she smiled as she read He Yuguang's message?
It hurt. His heart really hurt. It hurt so much he thought he was going to die.
But the pain he felt wasn't for himself but it was for her.
So this is what real heartache feels like; a pain that makes you wish you were dead, a heart-torn, gut-wrenching feeling
He Jichen's entire body started to tremble from the pain then he forced himself to walk over to the sink. He stroked the ashtray, lit a cigarette, and started to take big drags as though he was torturing himself.
After hanging up Han Zhifan's call, Ji Yi started to worry since He Jichen still hadn't come out from the bathroom. She circled the room twice over. She couldn't help but walk over to the bathroom door, raise her hand, and knock the door.
She was met with a wall of silence.
Ji Yi waited for some time, but seeing as there seemed to be no movement at the door, she couldn't help but put her ear to the door.
It wasn't clear if the hotel was soundproof, but Ji Yi tried to listen intently for a long time, yet she still couldn't hear any movement.
What's he doing inside? Did I knock too softly so he hasn't heard me?
With that thought, Ji Yi knocked on the door again but this time, she knocked harder than before.
"Bang! Bang! Bang!" rang the door for some time, but there was no sign of it opening.
Ji Yi's heart started to grow a little uneasy.
Something couldn't have happened like Han Zhifan said, right? He Jichen doesn't look like someone who would take things too hard But when he went to the bathroom, he really didn't look too good. Han Zhifan even told me that if he doesn't come out from the bathroom, I should definitely go check on him
At that thought, Ji Yi was completely rattled. She went from smacking the door to kicking it until her feet hurt, but there was still no reaction from the person inside the bathroom.
All of a sudden, Ji Yi stopped caring about anything else. She walked around the room turning things over and throwing things around left and right until the entire room was in shambles. Yet she still couldn't find anything to break the door.
She was so worried that her forehead was drenched in sweat. Then she rushed over to the bathroom door and kicked it with all her might.
The sheer pain from the blow against her feet made her eyes water.
She raised her leg to hug her foot. Then, she suddenly had an idea. She hobbled out of He Jichen's room and chose the room opposite and hurled herself at the door, kicking and punching.
"Who is it?!" Because the smacking at the door was non-stop, the person who opened it was little annoyed. After his angry reply to Ji Yi, he pulled the door open.
It was the assistant director who opened the door. Over his shoulder, Ji Yi saw that the casting director and the male lead were sitting in his room.
There was a plate of fruit and beers on the table. The three of them were probably hanging out.
The assistant director was clearly stunned to see Ji Yi as he cried "Ji Yi?" in disbelief. Before he could ask why she was there, Ji Yi reached her hand out, grabbed the assistant director by the arm, and dragged him into He Jichen's room.
