After her birthday, Ji Yi's life on set was evidently a lot calmer.
Ji Yi knew that this kind of calm was only temporary. Qian Ge would never let her off that easily, but since she didn't know what was going to happen next, all Ji Yi could do now was do her best in her scenes.
Life on set wasn't completely tedious. For example, Han Zhifan seemed to have a thing for the scriptwriter, Cheng Weiwan. Every day, he would send a bouquet of flowers to the set. His pursuit of her was on fire, making the entire cast and crew buzz.
As time went by, spring flew by and summer came. In the blink of an eye, they were at the end of shooting for "Three Thousand Lunatics."
In the summer, Hengdian got hotter by the day. This year on June first, Children's day, it was recorded as the hottest day in history. After shooting the final scene, Ji Yi was completely drenched in sweat, through and through.
As soon as she removed herself from the scrutiny of the camera lens, the first thought on her mind was to immediately head back to the hotel for a shower. However, before she could get changed in the changing room, an old acquaintance who she couldn't quite remember called out to her: "Ji Yi."
It was a man with a familiar, yet perhaps unfamiliar voice. Ji Yi was stunned for few seconds before she slowly turned her head towards the source of the sound.
The man wore a suit and he was standing under a nearby tree smiling right at her.
He looked incredibly familiar, but Ji Yi couldn't quite remember who this old acquaintance was all of a sudden?
"Ji Yi" The man called her name again then walked over to her. Just as he was about to reach her, he continued to say, "What a coincidence! I never imagined that"
Before the man could even finish, Ji Yi finally realized who he was. In the shock of it all, she let slip, "Fatty?!"
Ji Yi didn't wait for the man to reply and looked him up and down twice over. A second later, she said in astonishment, "It's really you! Fatty, I can't believe you're so skinny now. I couldn't even recognize you just now!"
As Ji Yi said that, she realized she just called him by his old nickname, so she quickly corrected herself: "I'm sorry, force of habit! I should call you Su Han."
"That's alright." Su Han didn't mind at all and continued from where he left off. "I learned a few days ago that Chen Ge was filming here. I just happened to be in Hangzhou and I had a free day today, so I figured I'd come to visit Chen Ge. I never imagined that you'd be on Chen Ge's production team."
After a pause, Su Han said, "Oh, that's right! It's still early. Chen Ge and I have plans to have dinner later in Hangzhou - why don't you come along too?"
He and He Jichen planned to meet up, but he's inviting me to come along Does He Jichen know?
Just as Ji Yi was torn over how to answer him, He Jichen came over after rewatching all the scenes shot that day, confirming that there were no scenes to reshoot. Without waiting for Ji Yi to reply, he said dully, "We're all old classmates and it's been so long since we saw each other. It's a perfect time for us to get together."
"Yeah, Ji Yi. You can't snub me like that, right? After all, I helped you buy breakfast for a whole year at school" said Su Han as added to He Jichen's words.
Even though He Jichen was the one who ordered Su Han to buy the breakfast for her for a whole year, now that he brought it up, Ji Yi didn't have the heart to decline even though she hadn't decided if she wanted to go. She lowered her eyelids and smiled. "Then, I'll head back to the hotel to get changed. See you guys later in the hotel lobby."
