She didn't reply to the attendant nor did she care to find out what kind of alcohol he was carrying. She reached her hand out to grab a glass, put it to her lips, and downed it.
When she put down the glass, Ji Yi glanced back at where He Jichen and Xia Yuan were sitting.
Xia Yuan had finished the ice cream and was now eating the mango pomelo sago. Xia Yuan seemed to have spilled something on herself since He Jichen handed her a tissue. After she took the tissue, she looked up and smiled sweetly at He Jichen. Then she looked down and dabbed at her collar.
Ji Yi couldn't help but clutch onto the glass in her hands more tightly. The next second, she withdrew her gaze and put down the empty glass onto the attendant's tray. She picked upanother glass and raised it to her mouth again.
Since the alcohol was a little strong and she downed two consecutive glasses, Ji Yi was feeling a little dizzy. She found a place nearby to take a seat, then she asked the attendant to leave two glasses for her before she dismissed him.
As quite a few people passed Ji Yi, they would say "hello" to her. She smiled back reflexively, but she didn't really hear what they were saying to her - the corners of her eyes were glued to the two people in front of the tall windows.
Xia Yuan had finished eating, so she put down her spoon and picked up a napkin to wipe the corners of her mouth. Ji Yi couldn't hear what He Jichen said, but then Xia Yuan elegantly got up and walked over to the restroom.
The second Xia Yuan left, He Jichen called Chen Bai over.
Since Ji Yi was too far away, she couldn't hear them talking, but she saw Chen Bai pull out his phone after He Jichen finished speaking. After flipping through it for some time, Chen Bai then handed it to He Jichen as though he was waiting for some kind of confirmation. It wasn't until He Jichen nodded that Chen Bai took his phone back and continued to tap the screen.
Over ten seconds later, Chen Bai put his phone away. Ji Yi could vaguely make out the words: "Mr. He, it's done" from Chen Bai's lips.
Ji Yi figured that He Jichen must've asked Chen Bai to do something for him just now. After Chen Bai completed the task, he gave proof of this through his phone.
He Jichen gave a slight nod when Xia Yuan came back. She first said a few words to Chen Bai with a bright smile, then walked over to He Jichen's side. She didn't sit down but went right over and whispered something into his ear.
The expression on He Jichen's face didn't change, but he furrowed his brows and after about five seconds later, he got up.
She didn't know what he said to Chen Bai, but Chen Bai passed He Jichen a room key.
After He Jichen took it, he glanced over at Xia Yuan but didn't say a word and walked over to the elevator.
Xia Yuan waved goodbye to Chen Bai and caught up to He Jichen.
The two of them stepped into the same elevator. After the red figures above the elevator started to jump, Ji Yi's bewildered gaze fell to the wine glass in front of her.
He Jichen got a room key and took Xia Yuan upstairs? What're they doing upstairs?
It felt like Ji Yi's mind was going to explode; all kinds of questions started to fill her head.
She started to grow uneasy as she downed the two untouched glasses on the table without a second thought. She couldn't let go of this sudden agitation that came out of nowhere.
She slammed the now-empty glass onto the table, and she didn't bother with the attendant staring at her, alarmed by her sudden actions. Then she sluggishly got up.
