She wasn't afraid of vile people per se, but she was afraid of vile people with no bottom line. Ji Yi was careless; never in a million years did she think Qian Ge would actually make such a shameless move. To have taken Ji Yi's things for her own, Qian Ge even went around and took a bite at her!
Ji Yi wanted nothing more than to post on Weibo and tell the whole world right now that she wasn't the plagiarizer, Qian Ge was!
But she knew deep down that "The Legend of Qingcheng" aired before "The Tempestuous Grand Tang." Even if she told the truth, nobody would believe her!
If she really did post anything like that on Weibo, she was afraid it would just serve to invite even more abusive and hateful comments.
Now, Ji Yi finally understood that the most upsetting situation in the world was the agony of not being able to explain yourself.
The agony of holding it in, of being hard done by, of being framed... All types of emotions instantly filled Ji Yi's mind and boiled chaotically until the complicated feelings turned into an air of resentment.
She realized she must've been very angry, which was why her fingertips and body were trembling. Her teeth even started to chatter!
It had been a long time since Ji Yi was this angry. She wanted to calm her agitation, but the more she thought about it, the more the fire inside crackled.
Ji Yi figured she had to do something or she might go crazy.
With that thought, Ji Yi opened the game on her phone. However, after she got in, her fingers trembled as she couldn't even control the character's positioning.
Ji Yi got so mad that she threw her phone aside, found a rag in the bathroom, and started to wipe the floors.
Her bedroom was no more than twenty or so square feet, so she cleaned it pretty quickly. She didn't sleep at all last night, so she was obviously very tired, but she couldn't stop cleaning as she wiped the clean floors again...
She didn't know just how long she crouched on the floor like that or how many times she repeatedly wiped the floorboards when suddenly her phone rang.
She instinctively got up and wanted to get her phone.
However, because her knees crouched on the ground for far too long while wiping the floor, they were so sore that she couldn't get up. All she could do was climb over to the bedside and reach around for her phone.
When she saw the screen with the three words "He Jichen.," Ji Yi's eyes heated up and tears almost came crashing down.
When she swiped the screen to take the call, Ji Yi didn't manage to say anything when He Jichen cried out with a worried voice, "Xiao Yi?"
Ji Yi wanted to reply to He Jichen, but when she opened her mouth, she realized she had an incredible pain in her throat. She just couldn't speak.
Over the phone, He Jichen seemed to know how she felt at that very moment since he spoke without waiting for her response. "I flew to America last night. When I landed, it was already six in the morning. I was afraid you'd be asleep, so I didn't disturb you and quickly bought a flight and hurried back. I just landed at Beijing airport."
Even though He Jichen didn't mention why he was in such a hurry to book a flight back, Ji Yi knew he couldn't deal with everything in America because he was in trouble. He had to fly back.
Her heart suddenly warmed. The lasting feeling of being done hard by and the anger which circled her mind instantly intensified.
After He Jichen's voice fell, he waited for a while. Seeing as Ji Yi hadn't replied, he spoke again, "Xiao Yi, I'll come to pick you up tomorrow morning. Come with me on my business trip to America?"
If he really wanted her to go to America with him, then he could've asked Chen Bai to book her a ticket for her to fly out there. Why did he come all the way back?
