Ji Yi held her breath and concentrated her full attention on trying to listen harder. That was when she heard the faint sound of running water from the other side of the wall.
The sound of running water...
Ji Yi instinctively looked up at the shower above her head...
Is someone taking a shower?
Besides He Jichen, Xia Yuan was the only other person in the room next door. Why are they showering?
As that thought flashed across Ji Yi's mind, an image of He Jichen and Xia Yuan intertwined and kissing popped in her head.
Ji Yi's fingers quivered and she was left completely stunned in an instant.
She looked up in a daze and stared at the shower without blinking for a long time. It wasn't until her neck started to hurt that she slowly withdrew her gaze and looked down.
They can't be doing what I'm thinking, right? But a man and woman alone in a room, and showering too... So, when I passed He Jichen's room earlier, could there have been condoms inside the black bag the attendant gave He Jichen?
Ji Yi's heart started to feel a sharp pain as she slowly turned her head and looked over at the wall again. Yet, she didn't have the courage to listen carefully for their movements again.
She didn't understand why she was afraid, but she was afraid to hear He Jichen and Xia Yuan doing what she was thinking...
Ji Yi stood in the sleek bathtub in a daze for some time before she walked out of the bathroom.
She walked over to the side of the bed in a daze. Just as she took a seat, her gaze fell firmly on the wall behind the cabinet by the headboard.
On the other side of the wall was He Jichen's big bed. He and Xia Yuan were just there...
The air in the room instantly became thin. No matter how hard Ji Yi tried to breathe, she just couldn't do it.
She spent a lot of energy trying to eavesdrop, but she barely heard the sound of running water. Deep down inside, she knew that the rooms had excellent soundproofing. However, at that exact moment, she was scared she would hear the breathing sounds that could make a person's face flush.
Ji Yi thought if she stayed in the room any longer, she would definitely go crazy. Without even picking up her room key, she grabbed her phone and suddenly bolted out the door and towards the elevator.
Returning to the bustling party, Ji Yi finally felt a little better. She picked up a glass of wine and found a random corner to sit.
But this feeling didn't last long. She stayed like that for a minute then she started to sneak frequent glances at the elevator.
Why hasn't He Jichen come downstairs yet? Are he and Xia Yuan still upstairs?
With that thought, Ji Yi picked up the glass and started to down the alcohol.
She wasn't sure just how many glasses she drank, but she felt like she was troubling the attendant from demanding one glass after another, so she eventually asked the attendant to get her an entire bottle. Then she continued chugging away.
After a third into the bottle, she pulled out her phone to check the time.
Twenty minutes had passed since she came down from her room, yet He Jichen still hadn't come downstairs...
Just how long is he going to be busy with her?
Ji Yi hiccuped while hugging the bottle. She put it to her lips again and drank so fiercely that she choked. She quickly put the wine down, bent over and started to cough violently...
He Jichen and Xia Yuan didn't have a particularly close relationship. He just treated her more politely than other women in honor of his most respected teacher.
