As the last syllable dropped, Ji Yi strode away without lingering for a second.
After she finally released all her pent-up anger through venting at Qian Ge just now, Ji Yi walked right up to the front desk and curved her lips into a smile.
The lady at the front desk came over to Ji Yi when she saw her and immediately escorted her over to the room where her mum was.
Her mum was sitting on a European-style sofa while quietly discussing what she wanted to have done today with a much older technician.
After the lady at the front desk asked her to take a seat, she spoke a few words into the walkie-talkie she carried on her body. About a minute later, the door to their room opened and a technician younger than Ji Yi's mum came in with a cup of rose tea.
After the lady at the front desk left, the young technician handed Ji Yi a list of treatments then crouched down, raised Ji Yi's feet and soaked them into a foot spa filled with warm water.
Because He Jichen was at the front of her mind from when she said such harsh words to Qian Ge just now, Ji Yi suddenly wanted to talk to him.
She casually glanced at the list of treatments. After ordering a treatment, she started looking for her phone.
After searching for a while, Ji Yi couldn't find it. Then she remembered that when her mum rushed her out of the house, she specifically left her phone at home to avoid reading the comments online.
Without having He Jichen to share her thoughts with, Ji Yi realized just how much she missed him.
When she had something on her mind with no way of calling He Jichen, she realized she really wanted to see him.
What time did he sleep yesterday? Is he awake now?
The more Ji Yi thought about it, the more strongly she wanted to see him. After her technician finished wiping her leg with a towel, she suddenly stood up.
"Xiao Yi, what are you doing?" Sitting beside her, Ji Yi's mum jumped in shock.
When Ji Yi heard her mum speak, she turned to glance at her then casually said, "Mum, wait here at the spa for me. I'm going to go look for He Jichen!!"
"Why are you looking for Jichen?"
"I'll tell you when I get back..." replied Ji Yi to her mum as she apologized to her technician: "Sorry." Then she put on her shoes and hurriedly ran out of the beauty salon.
She hailed a taxi and headed for He Jichen's apartment.
The door opened the second after she rang the doorbell, but it wasn't He Jichen - it was the helper he hired, Zhang Sao. "Miss Ji, why are you here?"
"Where's He Jichen?" Ji Yi asked.
"Mr. He went to the office with his assistant Mr. Chen an hour ago." After Zhang Sao spoke, she made a hand gesture to welcome Ji Yi into the room. "I'll call Mr. He now and inform him you're here. Please wait inside for him."
"No need to trouble you. I'll go look for him at his office."
"Alright then, Miss Ji. Take care."
Ji Yi replied to Zhang Sao with a smile but didn't utter a word. She retreated to the elevator and pressed the button.
At the office, there was still no security guard on shift on the third day after new year's.
Ji Yi paid her driver and walked through the empty lobby then stepped into the elevator.
Reaching the top floor, Ji Yi weaved past the secretary's office and headed right for He Jichen's office door.
The office door wasn't completely shut but it was left half-open.
