He Jichen heard what director Lin said, but he didn't have any intention of replying.
After receiving Zhuang Yi's call, he immediately rushed back. After a thirteen-hour plane journey, it was eight in the morning in Beijing when he landed at the airport.
As soon as he got off the plane, he headed straight for the office without stopping at home.
When he and Chen Bai stepped into the lobby of the office, he happened to bump into Cheng Weiwan, who dropped by for a meeting about the script. She was chatting with the lady at the front desk, so she didn't notice him and Chen Bai. Cheng Weiwan didn't turn around until the lady at the front desk greeted him with a shocked expression because he was still supposed to be in America.
In contrast with the front desk lady's shock, Cheng Weiwan looked unfazed and straightened up from leaning on the front desk. She strutted over to him in her high heels and said, "Xiao Yi's also in the office. She was called into conference room two by director Lin."
Ji Yi twisted her ankle. Why did she still come into the office today?
Hearing this, He Jichen didn't say a word to Cheng Weiwan. He walked right into the elevator and headed upstairs.
As he emerged from the elevator, he ignored the greetings of all the office workers. He headed right for conference room two, but before he could push open the door, he heard director Lin's voice inside saying: "If I don't push her out, who should be pushed out then?!"
Although he didn't know what happened in the conference room, he could sense that it wasn't anything good, so he immediately pushed open the doors and stepped in.
The expressions of Ji Yi, Zhuang Yi, and director Lin definitely showed that they were in some kind of an argument...
He Jichen continued to stare at director Lin for some time before he glanced at the file in front of Zhuang Yi.
He didn't move any closer but instead, he turned his head towards Chen Bai.
Chen Bai immediately walked over to the documents and started to flip through them.
Soon enough, Chen Bai closed the file and glanced first at director Lin before he turned to He Jichen and replied, "Mr. He, this file is a contract termination."
Contract termination document?
He Jichen creased his brows. A second later, he snatched the documents from Chen Bai's hands.
He flipped the file open and read through it for about three seconds before slamming it onto the table hard. He stared at director Lin and said with a cold voice, "What's going on?"
The corners of director Lin's lips twitched, but she didn't say anything and lowered her eyelids.
He Jichen stared deeply at director Lin. After some time, he realized she wasn't going to say anything, so he gave up questioning her. Instead, he looked right at Ji Yi and spoke with a far calmer voice than the cold tone he used with director Lin earlier. "What's going on?"
When Ji Yi heard He Jichen's voice, her eyelids shot open. She glanced at him then lowered her head.
She wasn't trying to be uncooperative and not say anything, but she really didn't know how she could tell He Jichen about what happened. After all, director Lin said some overly harsh things, so there was no way she could repeat them.
In comparison to how he waited for director Lin to speak earlier, He Jichen now seemed much more patient.
He didn't urge Ji Yi to talk, so no one else dared to make a sound. The entire conference room fell silent.
After about five minutes, He Jichen gave up waiting for Ji Yi to speak as he looked over at Zhuang Yi, sitting next to Ji Yi. "Zhuang Yi, you talk. What the hell is going on?!"
