Although she used irrefutable arguments to dismiss Bo He's suspicionsthen, she still had deep doubts in her heart.
When He Jichen called the dorm room, she was right next to him. Bo He and Tang Huahua were also with her, so was he looking for Ji Yi?
At times, a woman's intuition is really accurate.
She had to admit, when she invited He Jichen out that weekend, she deliberately told He Jichen that Ji Yi was going to the hot springs too.
So when she unexpectedly saw He Jichen at the Peony Pavilion, she finally understood.
He Jichen wasn't into her. He obviously wasn't drunk in love with her, but Ji Yi.
And for over a month now, I've been foolishly used as a pawn.
How could I just take that? How could I?
Yet she didn't want to lose face in front of He Jichen, so she plotted to ruin Ji Yi. She wanted Bo He and Tang Huahua to look down on her, and she wanted He Jichen to think she was a sly, calculative woman... so she put on that show tonight.
Lin Ya prepared well in advance for that night. She had been full of confidence, but she never imagined that Ji Yi would have a recording device on her.
In the end, she hadn't ruined her target but ruined herself. Bo He and Huahua definitely looked down on her now, and as for He Jichen...
At that thought, Lin Ya's fingers trembled. She carefully raised her head and looked up at He Jichen.
He was bending down to pick up her bag...
In that very moment, a sliver of hope surfaced Lin Ya's ashen heart. If he's doing this, does that mean he forgives me?
"He Dage, I..."
Before Lin Ya could finish, He Jichen straightened up, raised his hand and threw the bag at her face.
With that, an immense pain pierced Lin Ya's heart. Her heart was instantly shattered.
He wasn't helping me pick up my bag; he was giving me a taste of my own medicine by throwing the bag I just hurled at Ji Yi!
Tears instantly filled Lin Ya's eyes. She turned her head and looked at He Jichen as she said, a little choked up, "He Da..."
She only managed to get those two words out before He Jichen took a step back into his room. It was as though he wasn't willing to waste any more time with her. He slammed the door right in her face.
After their fight, Ji Yi wasn't in the mood to spend the rest of the weekend at the hot spring resort, so the next morning, she sent Li Da, Bo He, and Tang Huahua each a text. She gave a weak excuse and returned home, back to the city.
Ji Yi didn't go back to school dorms that nightsince she only had class the next morning. When she returned to school, she went straight to the classroom.
Lin Ya never showed up, even after the bell rang for class.
After class, when Bo He and Tang Huahua looked for Ji Yi to talk, Ji Yi learned that Lin Ya didn't come back to the dorm room last night either.
In the following days, no matter in the classroom or the dorms, Lin Ya was nowhere to be found.
When the three of themJi Yi, Bo He, and Tanghuahuafinished class and went back to their dorm on Friday, Tang Huahua was just about to pull out her keys to unlock the door when someone from inside pulled the door open.
It was Lin Ya, who they hadn't seen for a few days. She emerged from the room with a suitcase and walked out.
