The ambulance reached the hospital in no more than ten minutes.
The car came to a stop. The car door opened and Han Zhifan was immediately taken by the nurse waiting at the hospital entrance.
Cheng Weiwan was never more than a single step away from Han Zhifan's side; she followed the nurse from the ambulance. The two of them followed behind Han Zhifan as he got out of the car.
After the people in the ambulance stepped out, Ji Yi picked up her handbag, got up and quickly got out of the car.
She found her feet then told Cheng Weiwan she was going to help look after Han Zhifan, so she was going to change into a hospital gown. That was when she suddenly heard a familiar voice next to Han Zhifan's ambulance saying, "What's the situation?"
As she heard this voice, a tall, slender figure barged into Ji Yi's sight. Both the word "Wanwan" from her mouth and her footsteps towards Han Zhifan came to a sudden stop.
Her fingers clutched her bag more tightly and her gaze slowly lifted as she looked over to Han Zhifan's side.
A middle-aged man in a long white gown who looked like he could be the president of the hospital was talking to Cheng Weiwan.
Beside them was a man in a white top and black bottoms. He stood leisurely as he stared at their exchange with a rather unconcerned look on his face.
Ji Yi's gaze stopped on the man's face for no more than two seconds before her eyes were drawn to the man's wrist.
Under the dazzling light from the hospital entrance, the red string looked unusually striking.
In actuality, when she heard the voice, she knew it was He Jichen. But it was only after she saw the red string that she realized he was real.
It really is He Jichen... It's He Jichen, who I haven't seen for about a month...
Ji Yi stopped in her tracks and stared at He Jichen but didn't come close.
The middle-aged man in the white gown must've finished speaking to Cheng Weiwan as he was now saying a few words to He Jichen standing beside him. Then he headed over to Han Zhifan's bedside and started to talk to the nurse beside him who was waiting to prep the operating room.
Cheng Weiwan didn't go to the bedside; she but turned her head to look over at He Jichen.
He Jichen's lips moved. As they were quite some distance apart, Ji Yi couldn't hear what he said, but from the shape of his lips, she could tell he was asking Cheng Weiwan about what happened.
Without even waiting for Cheng Weiwan to speak, He Jichen turned his head and quickly said something to the nurse beside him. Then the nurse quickly removed her long white jacket and handed it to He Jichen.
He Jichen took it and handed it to Cheng Weiwan. She hesitated for a moment before taking it; she must've said: "Thank you." Cheng Weiwan paused for a moment then continued to speak for some time.
From start to finish, He Jichen didn't make a sound, but the expression on his face became colder and colder.
After Cheng Weiwan finished speaking, he turned to look in the direction where Ji Yi was standing.
He stared at her so unexpectedly that Ji Yi wasn't prepared at all as her immediate attention was captured by his eyes.
He wasn't looking at Cheng Weiwan, nor did he even notice Cheng Weiwan saying anything. All he did was nod gently, raise his feet and start to walk over to Ji Yi.
His footsteps were big. As Ji Yi snapped back to reality after their gazes unexpectedly met, he was already standing in front of her. His eyes started to scan her entire body up and down.
