Her eyes glanced over the screen, pretending to check out the expressions in their photo. She opened her lipsslightly and gently whispered into Qian Ge's ear, "Do you know why Cheng Ke pulled out of the BL Charity Gala tonight at the last minute?"
As Ji Yi's voice dropped, she clearly saw Qian Ge's expression freeze on her phone screen.
But after all, Qian Ge had worked in showbiz for many years now; the stiffness in her expression only lasted a split-second before she softly arched her eyes.
Ji Yi pressed the camera button and raised the phone to eye-level, pretending to take a picture, but in actuality, she opened the photo of Qian Ge from four years ago. Then she brought it in front of Qian Ge. After she took a good look at it, Ji Yi said, "Qian Jie, this one's really good, isn't it? Let's take two more?"
As Ji Yi said this, she pulled the camera app in front of her and Qian Ge again.
Just like before, she acted as though she really liked Qian Ge. She leaned into her hair for a kiss and spoke at a volume only the two of them could hear. "It was because I took this photo and showed it to Cheng Ke. I told him you and I were great friends, so the next time we went out, you were going to invite him to come too."
Ji Yi knew Qian Ge far too well and she could clearly tell that Qian Ge knew what she meant fromher furrowed brows.
"So, Cheng Ke thought you were trying to use him to become popular, so he left at the last minute..." explained Ji Yi as she tapped the camera button a few more times then moved away from Qian Ge's ear.
Ji Yi didn't give Qian Ge any chance to react and said, "Qian Jie, I took the photo. Have a look and see which ones you don't like - I'll delete them."
Ji Yi knew Qian Ge's heart was unbelievably stifled right now. Ji Yi also knew Qian Ge was just itching to free herself from her and find an isolated area to vent her anger.
But I can't give her that opportunity because I have a show coming up since my chest is on fire!
With that thought, Ji Yi brought the phone up to Qian Ge's face, pulled up the photos, and pretended to examine the photos with her. In actuality, she kept taunting Qian Ge, "...I heard you've always wanted to work with Cheng Ke, but now, I think you've got no chance..."
Ji Yi was so close to Qian Ge, so she clearly felt Qian Ge's body tighten up.
The moment the word "No..." left Qian Ge's lips, Ji Yi immediately cut in, "Wow! Qian Jie, you're really pretty in this photo!"
All Qian Ge could do was confront Ji Yi's compliment with a smile. Backing up, Qian Ge excused herself: "Excuse me, I have to go to the restroom."
Ji Yi took the opportunity and said a few quick words to Qian Ge: "Ah right, there's something I forgot to tell you. You don't know just how cold the expression on Cheng Ke's face was after what I told him. Whenever Cheng Ke sees your name, I bet he's going to definitely move as far as possible for you!"
After she said this, Ji Yi tilted her head and raised her glass at Qian Ge. "Qian Jie, thank you for taking a photo with me. I hope we get the chance to work together again like we did for Three Thousand Lunatics," Ji Yi said with a radiant smile.
