"I told her that you only care about the ratings for 'The Tempestuous Grand Tang' and increasing YC's shares. I told her she's just a money-making tool to you!"
"You know what her reaction was at the time?"
She actually never imagined He Jichen would go overboard like he did. He first said some horrible things, then he even told her he only chose to expose her today because it was Ji Yi's birthday.
He used my demise as a birthday present for Ji Yi?
Her heart had suffered enough, but the heavens didn't let her go as if she hadn't been tortured enough tonight.
After Ji Yi appeared, she made his whole stern demeanor soft and gentle. From the moment he asked why Ji Yi was there, he insulted me by implying I wasn't a person.
He clearly knew Qian Ge liked him. Since they were young, she was infatuated with him like crazy, but he was so affectionate towards Ji Yi right in front of her. He even crouched down to tie her shoelaces.
I'm clearly a person. How could he be so cold and merciless to me but turn around and be so tender with Ji Yi?
Tonight, my whole reputation was swept away and I was called a million different names. The image I worked hard to mold for so many years was completely ruined and my career entered its lowest point, but Ji Yi's experiencing the exact opposite. After four years of silence, Ji Yi is starting to make it to the top with the help of the man I like... How can I accept that?
Since I'm having a hard time, they can forget about having an easy time!
With that thought, Qian Ge didn't hesitate in the slightest and said, "She asked if it was true or false."
"When I told her you knew a week before the whole scandal broke out but didn't do anything, she got angry right there! Her face changed like she'd been lied to!"
"He Jichen, you schemed so carefully to set up such big game, but did you know that the person you're helping doesn't actually trust you in the slightest?"
When Ji Yi heard this, her eyes abruptly widened in disbelief and she stopped midway in getting into the car.
What kind of nonsense is Qian Ge spewing? That clearly wasn't the reaction I had when I heard what she said that day!
I was mad but I was mad at Qian Ge, not because I didn't believe He Jichen!
"He Jichen, if it wasn't for tonight, did you think she would come running to you because of all the things you did for her? If it wasn't for what happened tonight, her heart would definitely be filled with hatred because you hyped up the scandal and got her mum injured in the process..."
Ji Yi had to admit she hated He Jichen then, but she didn't misunderstand him because of what Qian Ge said. She was only hurt because she overheard his conversation with Chen Bai at his office.
Qian Ge really tried to set a new bottom line by actually flipping the story! She was now trying to challenge her and He Jichen's relationship!
Deep down, a sense of disgust started to brew. Suddenly, her glare on Qian Ge became intense. She took a step towards Qian Ge and was about to speak when He JIchen reached out to stop her.
Ji Yi instinctively turned her head to look at He Jichen who had a neutral gaze on Qian Ge. For some reason, a sense of anxiety crept into Ji Yi's heart and her fingers clutched onto his sleeve for a moment. Then she heard He Jichen say, "Are you sick in the head?! I don't even know you! Why should I believe what you're saying?!"
