Why do I have to believe what you say...
Sometime after He Jichen's voice fell, the words still seemed to ring in Ji Yi's ears.
She felt a slight chill as the evening wind brushed across her sweaty body.
But when He Jichen's words echoed for a third time in her mind, Ji Yi suddenly felt a ball of fire ignite and insulate her body from inside.
Qian Ge never imagined He Jichen would answer with such conviction in Ji Yi. A wall of confusion crossed her troubled eyes as an indescribable sense of uncertainty filled her chest.
That day at the beauty salon, Ji Yi responded to her in the same resolute way when she tried to drive a wedge between them. Ji Yi trusted He Jichen then and now that Qian Ge tried the same trick on He Jichen, he also chose to trust Ji Yi.
At that moment, Qian Ge felt like a clown. She used all her willpower, yet she still couldn't achieve her goals. She wasn't sure if she was angry with herself or if she was jealous of Ji Yi, but a sudden menacing ray of light shot from her eyes as she stared at the two people standing together in front of her. "Yes, you don't have to believe what I say, He Jichen, but facts are facts. Between the two of you, you have always been the one who trusts the other..."
He Jichen's already stated his position. How has Qian Ge still not given up?
If Ji Yi was just a little unhappy before, she was definitely real mad now.
Just as she was about to retaliate, He Jichen spoke first with a flat voice, "I believe her and that's my business. I never asked her to believe me."
Ji Yi's thoughts instantly froze.
She hadn't recovered from what He Jichen said when he pushed her into the car and got in himself.
Chen Bai shut the car door, quickly got in, and started the car.
As the car drove past Qian Ge, Ji Yi instinctively turned her head and looked through the back window.
Qian Ge gritted her teeth as she stared at the car. Flustered and exasperated, she made a few stumbling steps with tears still flowing from her eyes. She looked really sullen and impatient. After the car drove some distance away, she suddenly dropped to the ground. Her shoulders trembled and she started to sob.
The car gradually sped up. Ji Yi sat in the car, thinking about that last image of Qian Ge crying on the ground and her lips couldn't help but curve up slightly.
Qian Ge intended to strike He Jichen's heart with a thunderbolt and scar his relationship with Ji Yi. However, she never imagined He Jichen would reply the way he did.
Not only did Qian Ge not achieve her goal, but her own heart was struck and she was afraid it would take a very long time before she could release the pent-up feelings she had tonight.
The more Ji Yi thought about it, the happier she felt. Eventually, she even put on a toothy grin.
"What are you laughing at?" He Jichen couldn't help but ask as he sat next to her. Since he got into the car, he'd been staring at her through the rearview mirror and noticed she had the same satisfied look for quite some time; she was so happy.
"Laughing at Qian Ge..." blurted out Ji Yi.
He Jichen shot a glance at Ji Yi and said coldly, "You must have so much free time to think about that piece of garbage!"
