Every person at Beiyang Hall tonight was practically all in showbiz. Ji Yi was afraid there were others outside, so she hurriedly swallowed what she was going to say and spoke with an indifferent tone of voice: "If we have time when we get back, I'll tell you more about it."
Zhuang Yi nodded gently then reached out to support Ji Yi's arm.
Even though Ji Yi didn't sprain her ankle, the scene unfolded under an audience's watchful eyes. Even if there were no cameras around, they had to continue acting!
When the elevator doors opened, Ji Yi limped just like she did at the gala. She limped over to the side of the minivan with Zhuang Yi's support.
Zhuang Yi was just about to open the car door when the phone in Ji Yi's hand rang.
Ji Yi glanced down to see that it was He Jichen calling.
He couldn't have already caught wind of what happened between me and Qian Ge tonight at the BL Charity Gala, right?
As she thought about it, Ji Yi swiped the screen and took He Jichen's call. "Hello?"
The caller was silent.
Ji Yi furrowed her brows and said, "He Jichen?"
She was met once again by a wall of silence.
It can't be a pocket dial, right?
"He Jichen?" Ji Yi called He Jichen's name again. Deep down, she figured that if the person on the other side of the call still didn't reply, she would hang up...
But before that could happen, a honk came from the other end.
At the same time, she heard a honk also coming from behind her.
Over the two honks, Ji Yi could hear He Jichen's voice coming from her phone. "I'm behind you."
Ji Yi was so shocked by He Jichen's three words that her fingers trembled and she almost dropped her phone.
Before she could react and register what those three words meant, she heard the sound of a car from behind her. With a stunned expression on her face, Zhuang Yi, who was standing beside her, said, "Mr. He?"
Ji Yi turned her head and saw He Jichen in just a white shirt. He was walking closer to her with his pair of long legs, one step at a time.
Wasn't He Jichen with Han Zhifan at the Golden Lounge on business? Why's he showing up here now?
Ji Yi was a little confused.
Ji Yi only came back to her senses when He Jichen stopped about half a meter from her. "Why... did you come here?"
He Jichen didn't say anything. He crouched down straight away and lifted Ji Yi's skirt.
Ji Yi's entire body froze at his sudden, unexpected move. Her legs instinctively retreated a little, but He Jichen grabbed her calf. That was when Ji Yi realized that He Jichen was checking her leg, so she blurted out, "I'm fine."
He Jichen seemed to have not heard Ji Yi at all as he checked Ji Yi's left leg then her right leg.
"I'm really fine," repeated Ji Yi.
He Jichen still ignored her. He didn't get up until he checked to see for himself that she was fine. Then he pulled out his phone and made a call.
After a few seconds, the call was picked up and He Jichen spoke with deep, low voice. "Doctor Xia? You don't have to come. Mhm, it's nothing major. Mhm, sorry..."
