Used your body... Director Lin's words became more and more cutting as Ji Yi's face turned red from agitation. Her hands over her knees clenched into fists and started to tremble gently.
Having been rendered speechless by director Lin earlier, Zhuang Yi decided to speak up again at that very moment: "Director Lin, you have to have evidence for what you say. For you to criticize people without any proof like this really makes it impossible to believe. Additionally, Ji Yi only replied to you, yet you used her words to give her an ultimatum if she doesn't sign? With that logic, aren't you just shoving false words down people's throats?"
"How am I trying to shove false words down her throat? I'm giving Miss Ji a chance to prove that she has skills. Didn't she say she was innocent? If so, then Mr. He signed her for her own skills, and if she does have her own skills, she won't have to worry about not being able to work in the industry. Even if YC canceled her contract, she won't have to worry about other people signing her with her skill set," said director Lin cleverly. Then she averted her gaze to Ji Yi. "Unless Miss Ji doesn't want to sign because she doesn't actually have any skills? Or! Miss Ji's so-called skills are only in the bedroom?"
"Director Lin, you're obviously not doing this for the company, but you're trying to force Ji Yi away!" Zhuang Yi lost her cool from director Lin's aggressive words as her voice became a little agitated.
"Yes, I'm trying to push her out!" Director Lin had always been quick-tempered. With Zhuang Yi's retaliation, her demeanor suddenly became more overbearing. "She ruined the hard work of countless people at YC, she made YC suffer severe losses, and she wasted a great opportunity handed right to her. I can't think of any good traits about her. If I don't push her out, who would?!"
"Director Lin, who are you trying to push out?" A second after director Lin spoke, the conference room doors flew open, and a cold voice floated in.
All of a sudden, the atmosphere in the room froze for a moment. Then everyone's heads turned to look over at the conference door in unison.
He Jichen walked in dressed in a simple black suit, looking worn out from his travels.
Hurriedly following behind him was Chen Bai.
Under everyone's watchful eyes, the two of them quickly walked over to the conference table.
That was when everyone in the conference room snapped to their senses and intuitively straightened up as they cried, "Mr. He."
He Jichen acted like he hadn't heard them as he ignored everyone's greetings and stopped in front of Ji Yi.
He didn't say anything but he lowered his head and stared at the cast on Ji Yi's leg.
He looked at her for about ten seconds before his gaze rose to Ji Yi's face.
She didn't look particularly good as annoyance emerged from her darkened eyes.
He Jichen didn't make a sound but furrowed his brows then his gaze fell on other people's faces.
Zhuang Yi had a faint hint of anger between her brows; a vague sense of discomfort appeared in director Lin's eyes...
He Jichen's gaze couldn't help but linger longer over director Lin.
Deep down inside, director Lin was terrified by He Jichen's glare as she couldn't help but speak out. "Mr. He, weren't you in America on a business trip? Why are you back now?"
