"Well, with this personality, he's really losing out. All he does is play it cool and pretend to be cold. In the end, after all he's done, he didn't take credit for anything, so everyone definitely misunderstood him."
Before, when would she ever care if I was misunderstood? Does this mean she's worried about me?
He Jichen's fingers trembled slightly when he read that message; his eyes were transfixed on the phone screen.
After a dozen seconds, he realized that the group of people in his video conference were staring at him with odd expressions. He quickly composed himself and put on a serious attitude as he continued to reply to Ji Yi: "Looks like tonight's dinner changed Manman's impression of Jichen quite a bit."
"To be precise, it changed a lot. Everything that I learned tonight completely overturned everything I knew about him. He's the complete opposite of my impression of him. Deep down inside, I thought he was condescending, arrogant, and rude, but tonight, I realized he's not like that. He's cold on the outside but warm on the inside, kindhearted from the bottom of his heart, and he treats friends and family very well. What's more, he's very passionate about the girl he likes. He has good traits that few men have..." Ji Yi paused for a moment then added, "He looks good, has a good background, and he's very talented. To think about it, he really is perfect."
As Ji Yi said this, she thought about "Cola girl" and couldn't help but complain to He Yuguang: "Now that I think about it, the girl he likes must be blind not to have chosen him."
It hadn't even been ten seconds after she sent that message when she heard the sound of soft chuckling.
She instinctively turned her head to look over at He Jichen who was sitting behind his laptop, laughing while staring at his phone.
Isn't he in a meeting? How did he slip up like that? And to laugh out of control like that
He Jichen raised his head and shot a glance at Ji Yi as though he sensed her gaze upon him. After he met her glance, he immediately withdrew the smile on his face. Then he glanced at the indescribable expressions on the faces of the executives. He cleared his throat, fixed his expression and replied, "Continue."
"He Yuguang" must've been tied up with something as he didn't reply to Ji Yi's message.
Ji Yi figured she might as well browse Weibo and wait for sleep to overcome her. After a while, she opened WeChat and noticed that He Yuguang still hadn't replied.
She was just about to exit WeChat and continue to browse on Weibo when she caught a glimpse of what she sent to He Yuguang from the corner of her eyes: "He's cold on the outside but warm on the inside, kindhearted from the bottom of his heart, and he treats friends and family very well. What's more, he's very passionate about the girl he likes. He has good traits that few men have"
Those compliments for He Jichen were actually typed out with my fingers?
Ji Yi furrowed her brows in slight disbelief for a moment then looked at the next line: "He looks good, has a good background, and he's very talented. To think about it, he really is perfect."
Ji Yi was completely stunned as though her pressure points had been pressed.
Unbeknownst to me, I actually actually changed my perception of He Jichen this much?
Ji Yi instinctively looked over at He Jichen through his reflection in the tall windows nearby.
He was moving his lips, speaking quietly with his headphones on.
She couldn't hear what was being said, but she was lost in her thoughts again as she stared at him just as she did on the car ride back from West Lake.
