Useless person... Even though she was at fault, director Lin's unrestrained words made Ji Yi feel so utterly horrible that she could no longer apologize.
"Director Lin, though Ji Yi's at fault, don't you think what you said went a little overboard?" Zhuang Yi furrowed her brows, clearly disapproving director Lin's choice of words.
"Overboard?" Director Lin let out a light chuckle. "If you want to earn respect, you have to respect the other person. What right does this person with no good qualities have to talk about other people going overboard?"
Zhuang Yi fell silent.
The entire conference room fell silent.
After about two minutes, director Lin noticed that Ji Yi didn't pick up the pen to sign it. Impatient, she started to pressure her by saying, "I really don't have time to spend with you here. Please sign it quickly."
Ji Yi pursed her lipstightly as she looked down at the contract on the table for some time. Then she raised her eyes and looked over at director Lin. "Is this what He Jichen wants?"
He was the one who sought her out first to sign her. That night in the hotel room by the West Lake, he asked if she was willing to trust him.
Even though it was a long while back, she still remembered that night and her heart still raced endlessly over those words.
She knew director Lin, with her position in the company, could decide if she stayed or left. However, for some reason, she suddenly thought about He Jichen and she wanted to know if he was also responsible for asking to terminate her contract.
"Miss Ji, I also have a say in this matter. Even if I can't call the shots or make decisions on my own, it was a decision the entire board of directors made last night. The people in charge of the company were all there, so you can ask each and every one of them!"
As director Lin's voice dropped, all the representatives nodded one after the other as they sat in front of Ji Yi.
Director Lin waited until everyone stopped nodding before she swept Ji Yi a look. After a bout of silence, she spoke again, "Perhaps, Miss Ji, there's a reason why you suddenly brought up Mr. He? Are you telling me that you and Mr. He's relationship isn't so simple and you're using him to threaten me?"
"Miss Ji, I know you were signed specifically by Mr. He. I don't care for whatever despicable methods you used to get Mr. He to sign you, but you breached the contract and I have the right to terminate that contract!"
"I've met many women like you who use their sex appeal to get what they want. Take this incident as a lesson to not use your youth and moderate looks to use men to get to the top. With no skills, you're just trash!"
Despicable methods, sex appeal to get what I want, use men to get to the top... The words director Lin blurted out ignited an anger from the bottom of Ji Yi's heart. "Director Lin, this incident was my fault, but I hope you don't maliciously attack people and use your opinion to judge other people!"
"What Miss Ji means to say is that you didn't use men to get to where you are today? If that's the case, sign it. As long as you sign it, I'll believe you're innocent!" After director Lin said this, she raised her chin towards the contract in Zhuang Yi's hand.
It was obvious that if she didn't sign it, that would mean she joined YC under false pretenses... Ji Yi's hand instinctively clenched into a fist.
Director Lin waited for a while. When she noticed that Ji Yi didn't respond, she said, "What? Not signing? Are you secretly admitting that you used your body to join YC?"
