The man stood elegantly yet leisurely with both hands in his pockets. His gaze fell calmly on both Ji Yi and Dr. Xia.
After unexpectedly bumping into him tonight, she hadn't had enough time to really look at him; now that she did, Ji Yi realized that He Jichen got a haircut. It was a lot shorter than the last time she saw him a month ago, and he looked a lot skinnier.
She wasn't sure if it was because he was really busy at work lately, but it looked like he hadn't been sleeping well. The dark circles under his eyes were very heavy and his eyes looked deeply exhausted.
"Miss Ji..." said Dr. Xia suddenly, startling Ji Yi, who was staring at He Jichen through the window in a daze.
She hurriedly looked to see that Dr. Xia had already taken care of her wound and was pulling out medicine from his medical kit.
As he grabbed the medicine, he said, "...these are to be rubbed on the skin, and these are to be taken orally... The wounds are alright, not considerably deep. Today, I'll wrap them up for you. After you remove the bandages tomorrow, you won't need to bandage them up again. Tonight, don't let the wound on your knee touch water - your other areas are fine. Tomorrow, if a scab forms, you can take a shower as normal..."
When Dr. Xia finished speaking, he had already put his medical kit away and gotten up from the sofa. He said goodbye to Ji Yi then walked over to He Jichen. "Don't worry. Her wounds aren't serious. If there's anything else, call me. I have an operation at the hospital, so I'll be on my way now."
He Jichen nodded and said, "I'll see you out."
He Jichen walked Dr. Xia to the elevator doors. When they opened, Zhang Sao walked out from inside.
Seeing both He Jichen and Dr. Xia standing in the corridors, Zhang Sao was stunned and greeted them. "Mr. He, Dr. Xia."
Dr. Xia smiled at Zhang Sao but headed straight for the elevator because he couldn't stay for long, considering that he had to rush back to the hospital.
The elevator doors closed and Zhang Sao was about to walk over to the door when she noticed He Jichen still standing at the same spot. She stopped and turned to glance at He Jichen in confusion. "Mr. He, are you not going inside?"
Ji Yi must be physically and mentally exhausted from what happened to her and Cheng Weiwan tonight. With me at home, she probably won't be able to rest well, so it'd be best if I don't go back. Anyway, when I received Cheng Weiwan's text, I was busy working, so there's still a bunch of work waiting for me...
At that thought, He Jichen withdrew his gaze from the elevator and shook his head "no."
After three seconds, He Jichen looked over at Zhang Sao. "These next few days, take good care of her. If she's ever feeling unwell, call Dr. Xia immediately. When her wounds form scabs, they'll definitely be itchy. When she sleeps, she'll definitely scratch them, so please pay a bit more attention to her at night and watch over her..."
He Jichen carefully ordered Zhang Sao to do many things and only stopped when he ran out of things to remind her.
He stood there for a long time before he glanced over at the closed door to his apartment with a lonely look. Then he walked over to the elevator, pressed the button to open the doors, and stepped inside without looking back.
He Jichen drove the car out of the underground parking lot and stopped by the road. He lit a cigarette and smoked half of it when he suddenly remembered something. He pulled his phone out from his pocket and gave Chen Bai a call. "Tonight, something happened to Ji Yi in the courtyard of Nancheng. Try to find out about those people and while you're at it, find out who's behind this!"
