"You think he's the same as you?"
Ji Yi's voice sounded particularly cold. After she repeated what Qian Ge said, she shot an icy glare at Qian Ge. "Could you not insult him like that? Are you worthy of calling him your equal?"
Qian Ge never imagined Ji Yi would sound so overbearing and threatening as her arrogant eyes froze.
"You can't possibly believe I would believe your whole act of pretending to be clear and logical?" Ji Yi spoke as her lips curved into a gentle smile. "Qian Ge, do you take me for some kind of gullible three-year-old kid?"
"Let me tell you, even if you hype up your story and make it sound possible, I would never believe you!"
"You lost your credibility long ago. Let's not even mention what you said to me today about He Jichen - even if you randomly dragged a beggar off the streets, I'd rather believe them over believing you!"
"So Qian Ge, if you're trying to drive a wedge between me and He Jichen, I suggest you save it!"
With that, a newfound confidence entered Ji Yi's voice: "Because that will never happen!"
What a joke!
What has He Jichen done for me? Compared to what Qian Ge has done to me?
Does she think I'm dumb or that there's something wrong with my brain? Why would I suspect He Jichen just because of what she said?
What's more, after He Jichen went to America and found out what happened to me, he dropped everything and flew right back.
As soon as he landed, He Jichen called me.Usually he barely speaks, but last night, he changed and stayed with me the whole time...
The more Ji Yi thought about it, the more she got angry at Qian Ge's claim that he and she were alike. It was a blatant insult to He Jichen!
How could He Jichen be like her?
With that thought, Ji Yi spoke again with an angrier tone: "Do you know what you just said makes me think you're a complete fool? You think your little act is really convincing, but I've been laughing at you for a while now!"
"Today, I'm knocking down your words right here and now. I choose to believe He Jichen. I choose to believe him tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, and every day in the future!"
"I didn't choose to believe He Jichen because of what you said. Even if someone else said what you did, I would still choose to believe in him!"
"I, Ji Yi, am not foolish enough to be repeatedly embarrassed by you. I can tell who is telling me the truth and who is pretending. I have enough intelligence to determine that at least!"
As Ji Yi said that, she shot a deadly glare at Qian Ge then turned right around without waiting for her to respond.
She took two steps forward but then her footsteps suddenly halted like she just remembered something.
Without bothering to glance back at Qian Ge, Ji Yi coldly said, "Also, I'm warning you - quit comparing yourself to He Jichen because it will only disgrace him!"
With a pause, Ji Yi thought back to when they were young. Qian Ge asked her long ago to help set her up to meet He Jichen at the school's grove. She added, "I finally get why He Jichen didn't like you in senior high!"
"It's because birds of a feather flock together. The two of you were never alike!"
