Ji Yi was secretly happy as she was about to pick up a glass of milk and take a sip. A moment later though, she saw another call coming through on He Jichen's phone.
Ji Yi paused with the glass of milk in her hands and stared at He Jichen's phone screen.
As He Jichen's fingers tapped the screen, the screen didn't show a call - it was a video call...
So He Jichen hung up the phone just now not to end his call with Xia Yuan, but to change it to a video call?
Ji Yi felt overwhelmed by jealousy which made her feel incredibly uncomfortable.
He Jichen stood in front of the tall windows, video chatting for a long time with no intention of hanging up.
The jealousy in her chest grew heavier as Ji Yi started to get restless.
Isn't he not a talkative person? Why's he chatting with Xia Yuan for so long?
He Jichen's voice was really low. Ji Yi could only make out one or two words every now and then, but she couldn't make out what he was really saying.
Just as Ji Yi couldn't take it anymore and wanted to go into the bathroom to calm down a little, she vaguely heard He Jichen say, "Get married?"
Married?! What does that mean?
Is Xia Yuan talking to He Jichen about getting married?
He Jichen won't agree to it, right?
Ji Yi held her breath and concentrated on eavesdropping for a long time, but she really couldn't hear what He Jichen and Xia Yuan were talking about.
The more she tried, the more impatient Ji Yi felt.
He Jichen didn't pick up Xia Yuan's call at first, so he must not like her... But isn't there an old saying - hmmm, how did it go? It's as easy as pie to get a guy... Xia Yuan's pretty and she comes from a well-educated background. What if He Jichen agrees to it? What's most important is that He Bomu's with Xia Yuan so late at night... It's a good time to go to war for her and Xia Yuan's occupied everything...
The more Ji Yi thought about it, the more scared she felt.
No! I have to think of a plan to interrupt their video chat...
Ji Yi bit her fingernails and stayed silent for two seconds. Then she put the glass of milk on the coffee table, grabbed a fork, and tossed it at her foot.
Taking advantage of the temporary pain that traveled into her heart, Ji Yi deliberately raised her voice and shrieked.
He Jichen was standing in front of the tall window with his back to Ji Yi when he heard her shriek. He abruptly turned his head and looked over at her.
When Ji Yi met He Jichen's gaze, she immediately couched down on the sofa and covered her foot.
Even though she wasn't looking at He Jichen, she heard the sound of his footsteps striding over.
Soon enough, she saw He Jichen's feet appearing in her field of vision. "What's wrong?"
After Ji Yi heard this, she covered her foot and looked up at He Jichen.
He Jichen didn't hang up the phone and heard Xia Yuan's voice, "Jichen, who's in your room?"
She's not married to He Jichen, yet she's starting to check up on him?
And she even called him Jichen... Are they that close?
Ji Yi initially wanted to tell He Jichen she accidentally hurt her foot, but then she chose to hold her tongue. To show up Xia Yuan, Ji Yi first called him: "Chen chen..." Then she continued to say the words she held back initially: "...I accidentally hurt my foot..."
He Jichen's fingers around his phone suddenly shook.
He stared at Ji Yi for a few seconds and crouched down to check on her foot.
The fork wasn't heavy, so her foot just turned red. It wasn't a big deal.
