In just a second, the driver swiftly put his phone away, pushed his car door open and got out.
When he walked around the front of the car to open the door for Ji Yi, he saw her walking barefooted with cuts of various sizes. She had several grazes on her arms and legs, and she was covered in mud.
The driver was stunned for a while before he worriedly asked, "Miss Ji, what happened? I'll call Mr..."
Before the driver could say "He," Ji Yi suddenly cried, "There's no need. Take me home!"
Her hurried tone of voice gave the driver a scare.
Ji Yi realized she sounded overly agitated, so she spoke again with a more relaxed voice. "You don't need to call him. Please take me home, thank you."
From Ji Yi's expression, the driver could tell that Miss Ji and Mr. He got into some kind of argument. The driver didn't bring up the topic again and replied with a "yes" as he helped Ji Yi pull the car door open.
After the driver got into the car, he stepped on the gas and drove out of the parking lot at the foot of the mountain. As the car drove out, Ji Yi turned her head and stared at the pitch-black night sky out the window as the tears came crashing down like a flowing river.
She was truly devastated. Even if she knew deep down that by rejecting He Jichen and leaving He Yuguang, it would be the best ending for her, for He Jichen, for He Yuguang, for the three of them she was still devastated.
Even if she knew that nobody else was aware she had feelings for He Jichen while liking He Yuguang, she still deeply despised herself for being this disloyal and fickle.
What's more, because nobody knew this bad-to-the-bone side of her, nobody could blame her. This was why she blamed herself so harshly.
From today onwards, He Yuguang would be just a memory to her, and as for He Jichen, she had to try hard to control her heart. She had to limit herself to this stage of infatuation and prevent herself from falling any deeper.
From today onwards, her future love life would not include He Yuguang or He Jichen ever again. She might get married in the future or she might not, but no matter what, her other half wouldn't be either one of them.
From today onwards, she had to say goodbye to the He Yuguang she liked and goodbye to the He Jichen she had feelings for.
At that thought, Ji Yi couldn't help but bite the back of her hand hard to stop herself from crying, and embarrassingly, to prevent herself from wailing.
It was already the fourth day Chen Bai couldn't get hold of He Jichen.
He didn't come to the office, he wasn't at home, he wasn't at the university, and his phone was switched off.
Chen Bai even tried calling He Jichen's home in Sucheng. The person who picked up the phone was the He family's housekeeper who told him that after he left in the spring, he hadn't visited in almost half a year now.
After finishing shooting "Three Thousand Lunatics," the company still had many follow-up projects for He Jichen to finalize.
For him to vanish into thin air, there was lots of work at YC that couldn't be carried out. Business was fine two days ago, but two days later, Chen Bai spent practically every day in the office receiving an infinite number of calls asking when He Jichen would hand them the signed documents.
All Chen Bai could do was handle the seemingly endless aftermath to prevent matters from getting even worse.
One night, after seeing that YC was going to lose several big projects, Chen Bai personally called everyone who ever had anything to do with He Jichen out of desperation. However, in the end, he couldn't manage to locate He Jichen.
