If things were how they were before, she could let herself be completely happy, but now... The more He Yuguang treated her well, the more torturous it felt for her.
She and Yuguang Ge hadn't seen each other for three months now. Now after meeting again, he created such a beautiful scene for her, but what about her?
She actually had sex with his younger brother while being married to him, and she even had feelings for his younger brother too...
Ji Yi stared at the rising sky lanterns that looked like little stars. Her heart started to ache.
She didn't say anything and he didn't a word; silence fell in this spot midway up the mountain.
A gust of the evening wind drifted past, blowing Ji Yi's long hair across his face. The itchy sensation was coupled with an intoxicating scent.
He Jichen's fingers around his phone couldn't help but relax as he finally turned to look at Ji Yi.
She raised her head and looked up at the sky lanterns in the night sky. It wasn't clear what she was thinking about.
With the dim lights beside them, he could see the unbelievably bright glow of the sky lantern-filled sky reflected in her eyes.
His heart trembled gently.
As long as he was prepared to confess his deep love for her with his older brother's identity and accept Ji Yi's love for his brother, then perhaps he could spend his whole life with her...
My whole life... Three captivating words...
He Jichen's Adam's apple bobbed up and down as he continued to stare at Ji Yi for a while. Then he withdrew his gaze and stared up at the floating sky lanterns in the distance for a moment. In the end, he couldn't resist the temptation and picked up his phone. He typed something and sent it to Ji Yi: "Manman..."
When she felt the vibration in her palms, Ji Yi suddenly snapped back to reality. She tore herself away from her troubled feelings over He Jichen and He Yuguang, looked down, and glanced at the screen.
It's just my name... What did Yuguang Ge call my name for?
Ji Yi turned her head in confusion then saw "He Yuguang" staring at the phone attentively like he was wondering how to tell her something.
Most of the time, a woman's sixth sense is very accurate.
Before "He Yuguang" could raise his fingers to type on the keyboard, Ji Yi already had an inkling of what he might say next.
Her fingers clasped the phone in her palms tightly.
After five seconds, she saw "He Yuguang"'s fingers move. He used the Nine Grid Chinese keyboard on his phone. She saw him first tap "9," then "6," then "9" again, then "4," but when his finger hovered over "4" for a second, a light bulb turned on in Ji Yi's mind, confirming her intuitions.
Seeing "He Yuguang"'s fingers about to tap "4" for the second time, Ji Yi suddenly cried, "Yuguang Ge."
Up on the quiet mountain, her voice sounded hurried, unusually sudden, and ear-piercing.
Having been frightened, "He Yuguang"'s fingers shook for a moment as he was concentrated on typing. Then he released his phone and turned to look at Ji Yi.
He couldn't speak but his eyes were filled with silent questions.
Ji Yi tightened her grip on her phone then she cried, "Yuguang Ge, I didn't come to see you tonight to meet with you like we usually do."
Ji Yi paused for just a second then continued to say, "Tonight, I came to see you because I have something to tell you."
The expression on her face was very serious. It was so serious that He Jichen really believed that she had something important to say.
