The more Ji Yi thought about it, the more fired up she got, and the more she felt like those words didn't come from her dreams.
About half a minute later, Ji Yi's eyes opened wide.
Yeah... Those words weren't from my dreams. Those words were what he said to me over the phone, the day after my scandal broke out.
But at the time, Ji Yi was sleepy and groggy, so she thought it was all a dream.
So as it turns out, He Jichen hinted at his intentions a long time ago. I just didn't pay attention... I misunderstood him!
At that thought, Ji Yi suddenly turned around and rushed to the sidewalk.
She raised her hand, hailed a taxi, and got in.
Without waiting for the driver to ask where she was headed, she beat him to it. "Sir, take me to the airport."
After her voice dropped, she quickly pulled her phone out from her pocket and started to check flight times.
It took an hour to fly to C city. As Ji Yi booked her ticket, she rushed the driver to drive faster.
Two minutes after she paid, Ji Yi's phone rang. She glanced down at her phone to see that it was a notification telling her that her ticket was successfully booked.
She locked her phone screen and turned to look out at the night speeding by. Her heart started to race for no reason and with each beat, it jumped to life and pulsed with energy.
Soon enough, Ji Yi reached the airport where she paid the fare and bolted out without picking up her change from the driver. She rushed over to the departure floor and checked in.
It was almost time to board, so Ji Yi headed straight towards security. She managed to reach the boarding gate a minute before it closed and successfully made it onto the plane.
She took her seat, fastened the seatbelt, and switched her phone off.
After the plane ascended three million feet in the air, Ji Yi still thought this was all a dream, so she discreetly pinched her thigh. Then she pinched her own arm, still thinking this was all so surreal. She turned her head and reached her arm towards the middle-aged woman sitting next to her. "
The middle-aged woman glanced at Ji Yi like she was crazy then turned away to the other side, putting some distance between her and Ji Yi.
All Ji Yi could do was proceed to forcefully pinch her own face.
Her lips curved into a smile as she realized that everything that happened tonight was real when she felt the sharp pain from her pinch.
She removed her hands from her face and noticed the Ayi had already shifted to the empty seat next to her.
C city was close to Beijing. The plane landed safely at C city's airport after half an hour.
Ji Yi got off the plane and darted towards a taxi in the taxi area. She waited two minutes in line and got into a taxi.
On the way to the Television Awards, Ji Yi pulled out her phone and opened the live stream.
The awards were already reaching the final segment. The hosts were giving out the annual achievement award.
Midway through the journey, the awards show finished, so celebrities were shown on the screen as they made their way out of the venue.
Ji Yi was afraid He Jichen would've already left by the time she made it over. Just as she was going to call He Jichen, she saw He Jichen and Chen Bai on the live stream.
As soon as the two of them stepped out from the awards show, they were stopped by a group of interviewers.
"Excuse me Mr. He Jichen, may we please trouble you for a couple minutes of your time for an interview?"
