After she said that, Ji Yi seemed tired and done with messing around, so she instantly calmed down.
The smile didn't disappear from her lips though, and a tinge of warmth came over He Jichen's eyes, watching her smiling face.
He stared at her for a while, but seeing that she stopped acting up, he turned his head. "Call a female attendant to help her get into the shower," said He Jichen to Chen Bai, who was standing at the door.
After the attendant helped Ji Yi into the bathroom, He Jichen grabbed his bathrobe from the wardrobe and entered the other bathroom in the living room.
His head and face were completely covered in correction fluid which wasn't easy to wash off. After he cleaned himself up with much difficulty, he casually wrapped himself in a bathrobe and stood in front of the sink. He grabbed a towel and was just about to dry his hair when he heard the attendant's restless voice through the locked bathroom doors. "Miss Ji, don't run. Miss Ji, be careful..."
After using so much effort to get her to take a shower and quiet down, she can't possibly be acting up again, right?
He Jichen's fingers trembled and without thinking twice, he tossed the towel into the sink. He pulled the door open and rushed out after hastily tying up his bathrobe.
A trail of correction fluid was scattered from the coffee table all the way to the bedroom.
Why did she grab the correction fluid again?
Just as He Jichen furrowed his brows in curiosity, he heard the sound of the attendant in the restroom. "Miss Ji, be careful not to fall over!"
As the attendant's voice rang out, a "bang!" was heard as though something had slid to the ground.
He Jichen shivered violently for a second. He couldn't care less about whether Ji Yi was wearing any clothes as he leaped into the bedroom and pushed the bathroom door open with one hand.
"Xiao" He Jichen cried out just that word when he caught sight of the woman crouched in a drenched bathrobe.
She had her back to him, so he couldn't see her expression clearly. "The correction fluid can obviously fix some mistakes, but after using so much of it in the bathroom, how is the stench still in this room" mumbled Ji Yi endlessly.
The anxious attendant stood to one side. Just as she was flustered trying to figure out what to do, she noticed He Jichen from the corner of her eye then ran over to him like he was her savior. "Mr. He, Miss Ji was well-behaved when I started to help her take a shower just now, but for some reason, she suddenly started to act up. She grabbed a bunch of correction fluid and covered the entire bathroom with it"
He Jichen didn't wait for the attendant to finish talking but pointed at the door as if to tell her to leave first.
After the attendant left, He Jichen walked over to Ji Yi.
Before he could reach her, he heard her mutter his name. "He Jichen, do you know that you upset me..."
He Jichen's footsteps came to a sudden stop.
He wasn't stupid. When she drank so much, he knew she must've had a lot on her mind. He just never imagined that he was the one who upset her.
He Jichen silently stared at Ji Yi's curled-up body for some time with no clue how he upset her. In the end, he figured there was no use thinking about it as he snuck out of the bathroom. He looked for his cell phone and gave Chen Bai a call.
After he hung up, He Jichen returned to the bathroom.
Ji Yi must've been tired out from acting up for so long because when he carried her out of the bathroom, she merely fought back for a moment then stopped struggling altogether.
