The assistant was so frightened that she took two steps back, causing the wine glass to fall to the floor. A "crash!" followed as Qian Ge spoke sternly, "Why didn't I catch the slightest wind of YC signing Ji Yi? I pay all you people so much, yet you guys didn't even know about a piece of news like this?"
"Qian Jie, it's not that we didn't know - we knew long ago that YC was looking for artists to sign, but if Mr. He of YC wasn't frequently meeting with Jiang Xinxin, then he was with Lin Siyi. Everyone thought he was going to sign them. Yesterday, there was all this commotion about it on Weibo; everyone was guessing who YC would sign, but in the end, who knew that YC would officially announce that the person they signed was Ji Yi..."
The second Qian Ge heard this, she hurled a half-full bottle of red wine across the room.
The red wine crashed into the wall and shattered, causing the red liquid to splash across the floor.
"Which means it was all premeditated! Which also means that YC wanted to hype Ji Yi up long ago, and this was planned long ago. Whether He Jichen was talking to Jiang Xinxin or Lin Siyi, none of them were important. They were just used to hype Ji Yi up to the max!" Qian Ge raised her chin then clenched her teeth as she spoke: "If they wanted to boost her popularity, they could've done this long ago, but they just had to wait till "Three Thousand Lunatics" was released. They obviously wanted to use the double threat from the news and drama to get that b*tch a following..."
"Ah, He Jichen is truly devious..." A smirk emerged from the corners of Qian Ge's lips. "...But did he think he could actually make that b*tch famous? In his dreams! Every day that I, Qian Ge, remain in the entertainment industry, that b*tch Ji Yi will never become famous!"
Good, really good... but I, Qian Ge, am not a force to be reckoned with!
Qian Ge quickly calmed down and in a short minute, she thought of a plan. Qian Ge turned to look at her assistant then said, "Tell the company that no matter the consequences, go investigate! Find out about all the upcoming jobs Ji Yi has! Steal as many of them as possible, and for the ones that we can't steal, I'll think of another plan!"
In other words, she wasn't going to care about the consequences; she wouldn't hesitate to stop Ji Yi from ever making it big in the entertainment biz!
It was eight in the evening when He Jichen woke up.
Ji Yi didn't get much sleep the night before. After they took out He Jichen's needle, she couldn't take it anymore and fell asleep, sprawled out on the bed.
But she was still worried about He Jichen's illness, so Ji Yi didn't sleep very well. After He Jichen woke up, his leg twitchedslightly, causing Ji Yi's eyes to open wide. She bolted up from his arm that she used as a pillow. She happened to catch He Jichen as he slowly opened his eyes.
"You're up?" exclaimed Ji Yi.
After He Jichen heard this, his brows twitched; he assumed he was just hearing things. He stared up at the ceiling for a long time before his gaze fell on Ji Yi.
He didn't dare speak in fear that it was all a dream; he was scared that as soon as he opened his mouth, he'd wake up to find that she was gone.
When he caught her gaze, Ji Yi spoke again: "Is there anywhere you don't feel well?"
He Jichen only stared at Ji Yi without making a sound.
Ji Yi reached her hand out and touched He Jichen's head. "Still a little hot..." she mumbled as she got up and pressed the button for help by He Jichen's bedside.
