Ji Yi didn't snap back to her senses until she felt a vibration on her palm.
She looked down at her phone to find that He Yuguang sent her a message: "From what you said about Jichen's girl, she does sound like she could be a little blind."
Ji Yi nodded at his sympathetic response and replied, "Not just a little blind, she's practically too blind!"
Ji Yi let out a yawn after she sent that message.
After some time, He Yuguang replied, "It's getting late. You should go to bed."
"Mhm. Mhm," Ji Yi replied.
He Yuguang: "Goodnight."
"Goodnight." After she replied, Ji Yi sat still on the sofa for a while. She was feeling drowsy now, so she grabbed her phone and got up.
Her actions alarmed He Jichen, who was still in his meeting. He raised his head and looked over at her.
Ji Yi realized that if she spoke up, the people in the video conference would hear her. She gestured towards the bedroom as if to tell him that she was going to bed.
He Jichen must've understood the message as he gave her a gentle nod.
With that, Ji Yi made her way out of the living room and into the bedroom.
She shut the doors and went to take a shower. She changed into her pajamas and laid in bed for a while then fell asleep.
Perhaps it was because she drank too much over dinner that night with Fatty that Ji Yi needed to use the washroom, so she woke up from her dream.
The curtains were shut, so she couldn't see the color of the sky beyond the windows. It wasn't until she walked into the bathroom that she realized there was already a glimmer of light outside the tall windows next to the bathtub.
As she came out of the bathroom, Ji Yi felt a little thirsty, so she pulled open the bedroom door. Just as she was about to grab a bottle of water, she heard sounds of pitter-pattering from the keyboard from the living room.
She was stunned for a few seconds; her sleepiness dissipated completely.
He Jichen's... still busy at work. He didn't go to sleep?
She instinctively turned her head and saw He Jichen at the desk with his concentrated gaze on the laptop. His fingers were flying as they typed away on the keyboard.
He was probably wholeheartedly engrossed in his work. He hadn't even noticed that she opened the bedroom door.
So, he actually looks even more charming and captivating when he's hard at work.
It's true what they say - a working man is the most charismatic.
Ji Yi wasn't sure just how long she'd been lost in her thoughts while staring at He Jichen. He stopped typing away on the keyboard, raised his hand to rub his neck and sank into his chair as though he was exhausted.
After massaging his neck a few times, his eyes swept over to her. He stopped what he was doing and turned to look at her.
Sensing his gaze upon her, Ji Yi immediately snapped back to her senses and pointed over at the counter nearby. "I was thirsty."
After she said this, Ji Yi walked over to the counter and poured herself a glass of water.
She thought about it for a moment and poured He Jichen one too. She brought it over to his desk.
When she set the glass down, she saw the opened file on the laptop. With just one look, she recognized it to be the script for "Three Thousand Lunatics."
It was full of struck-out lines Some lines already seemed perfect, but He Jichen still reworked them.
Ji Yi couldn't help but ask, "Did you make all these amendments?"
"Mhm," responded He Jichen softly as he picked up his glass of water and drank half the glass.
She never imagined that he was someone who strived for perfection, and most importantly, that he treated work with such seriousness. Very few directors personally read the script in such detail.
At that thought, Ji Yi's admiration for He Jichen grew even more.
