He Jichen's gaze first landed on Ji Yi's face. Having heard Cheng Weiwan retell the events of that night, his cold eyes were bleak.
He pursed his lipsslightly then after a while, his gaze dropped.
Her nude-colored clothes were covered in dirt and there were some areas which were so worn out that there were holes.
Her fair arms were grimy and the inside of her forearm had a large graze.
He Jichen's hand balled up into a fist as a murderous impulse entered his heart.
Those people not only hit her face, but they injured her in other areas too?
He Jichen's chest started to heave from rage, and after some time, he withdrew his gaze and averted it to the lower half of Ji Yi's body.
With just one glance, he could see the traces of blood beneath her dress in the area of her covered knees.
Is that Han Zhifan's blood or is that from her injuries?
He Jichen walked over, crouched down and lifted Ji Yi's dress.
Ji Yi jumped in fright from his unexpected actions and instinctively took a step back. He grabbed her calves.
His palms were really hot; they burned Ji Yi's legs until she instinctively tightened up and her fingers clutched her bag even more tightly.
The wounds on her legs were far more serious than the grazes on her arm; her left knee already turned purple. The injured area was still bleeding... so, someone pushed her to the ground?
He Jichen squinted his eyes and a thick, vicious aura suddenly emitted from his body, adding to the already-heavy atmosphere.
Ji Yi stood frozen in place for a long time. Her legs were a little uncomfortable, so she couldn't help but shift around.
He Jichen snapped back to his senses and released his hands. As he stood up, he said with his cold, angry voice, "I'll take you in to get looked at."
As he said this, he snatched the handbag in her hands and pulled her wrist. Then he dragged her and walked over to the emergency unit.
Yeah, Ji Yi was in some pain, but she knew that her muscles and bones were intact; she would be fine if she applied some ointment from home. Her injuries weren't worth making a big fuss over; she didn't need to see the doctor. She instinctively relaxed a little as she stepped back. "It's okay. I'll be fine after I put some ointment on it when I get back home."
He Jichen kept dragging her and walked ahead like he hadn't heard what she said.
All Ji Yi could do was make up some random excuse. "What's more, you need ID to be seen by a doctor. I don't have my ID with me today..."
He Jichen stopped his footsteps.
Standing with his back to Ji Yi, He Jichen looked back at her. "Then I'll take you back home."
As he said that, he dragged her wrist and headed for the nearby parking lot.
"It's alright. I'll go back by myself. There are many taxis here..."
Ji Yi's knees hurt so much that she couldn't walk steadily. After walking a couple steps, He Jichen noticed this and stopped walking.
Ji Yi thought by his actions, He Jichen was allowing her to head home on her own, so she tried to draw her fingers back from him. All of a sudden, he forcefully dragged her in front of him, bent down, lifted her up, and carried her over to the car with big strides. He pulled the car door open and without giving her any chance to fight back, he shoved her in and locked the door while he was at it.
He Jichen quickly got into the car and bent over to fasten Ji Yi's seat belt. Then he stepped on the gas and drove out of the hospital.
