Though Ji Yi had her suspicions deep inside, she chose to answer Chen Bai's question honestly. "It's more or less better now."
"Mm..." responded Chen Bai as he looked behind Ji Yi, a little distracted. He then said, "that's good, that's good."
For him to answer like that, Ji Yi didn't quite know how to respond. In the end, all she could do was address his concern as she said, "Thank you."
"It's nothing," quickly replied Chen Bai. He paused for a moment then asked again as though he was trying too hard to find something to talk about: "How did you feel during today's filming? Does the wound on your waist hurt?"
"It doesn't hurt." Ji Yi shook her head.
"It's good that it doesn't hurt" Chen Bai didn't look at Ji Yi, but his eyes kept wandering around the lobby of the Grand Hyatt like he was looking for something.
"Thank you," said Ji Yi again. Seeing as Chen Bai didn't say anything further, she thought their conversation was over, so she said, "Assistant Chen if there's nothing else then I'd better head up"
"No no no" cried Chen Bai anxiously as though he was frightened.
What joke is this?
Chen Bai's main mission right now was to hold her back so she was the last one to go upstairs. There were still some people in the lobby who hadn't gotten in the elevator yet and the phone in his pocket hadn't vibrated to tell him to let her go
At that thought, Chen Bai quickly improvised. "Miss Ji, though your stitches have been removed, it doesn't mean you're all healed If you have to film tomorrow but you feel unwell, you have to tell me If you're in bad shape, the scenes will come out bad too. We must bring our best selves to shoot, that way it'll move the audience"
With furrowed brows, Ji Yi stared at Chen Bai talking non-stop.
Why do I feel like Chen Bai's acting strange? Not quite the same as usual?
Ji Yi racked her brain thinking about it for a long time, but she couldn't figure what was off about him. Seeing as Chen Bai finally stopped talking, she politely replied to everything he said: "Thank you assistant Chen for your concern. I'll bring my best self to set."
"Mmhmm, I believe you." Chen Bai nodded profusely. After replying to Ji Yi, he clearly felt his phone vibrating in his pocket for a moment. He pulled it out and glanced at it. It was He Jichen calling. Suddenly, he looked like he received the greatest surprise, and a second later, he told Ji Yi, "Miss Ji, there's nothing else, so please go ahead."
Ji Yi looked at Chen Bai with eyes filled with suspicion, but she gave him a nod and said, "Then, assistant Chen, I'll be off first."
"Alright." Chen Bai continued to nod profusely as he smiled.
Ji Yi glanced at Chen Bai a few times oddly and said goodbye then turned around and headed for the elevator.
Ji Yi knew that the party was on the second floor.
As she stepped out of the elevator, she was just about to find a sign for the Cladrastis Pavilion when a young waitress in a traditional Chinese dress shot her a beaming smile and walked over to her. "Excuse me, do you need some assistance?"
"Where is the Cladrastis Pavilion?" asked Ji Yi, trying to save herself the trouble of looking for it.
"Miss, please follow me." The waitress smiled and pointed to the left as she escorted Ji Yi through the hall with the red carpet.
When she reached the entrance to the Cladrastis Pavilion, the waitress stopped. She didn't help Ji Yi open the door, but she turned around and told Ji Yi, "Miss, this is it."
"Thank you," replied Ji Yi politely.
