Ji Yi's nose shifted to Chen Bai's chest and she buried her face in it completely.
Every hair on Chen Bai's body stood up, and without thinking about it, he blurted out, "Mr. He, I was wrong..."
Speechless with rage, He Jichen pointed to the doors of the hall and forced out the words "Get out!" to Chen Bai.
"Yes!" replied Chen Bai, without any hesitation.
Chen Bai had worked for He Jichen for many years now, so he was very familiar with his temper, and he knew that He Jichen was on the verge of erupting into a fit of anger. He really was afraid that He Jichen's fist would come hurling towards him, so Chen Bai now had no second thoughts about forcefully yanking Ji Yi off his body, even if it meant hurting her in the process. Without even thinking it through, he raised his hands, preparing to break away from Ji Yi's grip. However, before his fingers even touched Ji Yi, she suddenly turned her drunken self and directed her words to He Jichen: "Why are you getting angry?! Who are you telling to get out? You get out!"
Chen Bai's forehead started to sweat when he heard this.
Oh my god, I beg you stop talking. If you keep talking, I really won't live past tonight...
But it felt like the heavens wanted to play with Chen Bai - just as he made a secret wish for Ji Yi to shut up, she gritted her teeth and spoke again. "YouWhy are you still standing there like an idiot? Go buy me some correction fluid!"
He Jichen's face was already gloomy from Ji Yi's antics; he now looked as though he was at his limit and couldn't endure it any longer. He took big strides towards Ji Yi and yanked her fingers from Chen Bai's collar. With complete disregard for the amount of force he was using, He Jichen pried off her fingers, one after another.
Chen Bai's fingers hurt just from watching him do that; he couldn't imagine how painful it must be for Ji Yi.
"I told you to go buy some correction fluid - why are you pulling my fingers off?! Are you listening to what I'm saying?!" Ji Yi squirmed to free herself, trying to escape from He Jichen's hold.
With a calm and collected expression on his face, He Jichen ignored Ji Yi.
He violently pried off Ji Yi's fingers from Chen Bai's collar out of anger from her incessant antics. He reached his arm out and forcefully tugged on the corner of Chen Bai's collar. With a "sssseeeet" sound, he tore off the sleeve that Ji Yi had been clutching.
Chen Bai instinctively raised his hands and covered his chest.
He Jichen didn't even shoot him a glance and clawed the little woman into his embrace.
Ji Yi squirmed but couldn't escape He Jichen's embrace. She was so angry that she raised her leg and frantically kicked He Jichen. "Are you deaf? Did you not hear what I said? Why are you standing there like a fool? Go buy me some correction fluid! I want a hundred bottles!"
To He Jichen's surprise, he was kicked in the calf by Ji Yi's sharp stilettos. The searing pain further fanned the angry flame brewing in his heart.
He shot a glance at Ji Yi, who was so drunk that she didn't know what time or day it was, tempted to shout at her but he figured it'd be useless. "Are you deaf? Didn't you hear what she said? Why are you still standing there like a fool? Go buy some correction fluid!" demanded He Jichen, repeating Ji Yi's orders to Chen Bai.
Those were clearly the words Miss Ji shouted at Mr. He. Why's Mr. He shouting the exact same words back at me?
Chen Bai was suffering inside, but he didn't dare show it on the outside. All he could do was nod violently. "Yes, Mr. He, I'm going!"
