"I wondered who might've hurt Ji Yi, but I never imagined it was you!"
The more He Jichen spoke, the angrier he got. He looked around him then randomly picked up a floor lamp and smashed it on Han Zhifan without a second thought.
The floor lamp crashed against Han Zhifan's bodyhard, making him shrink in pain. He violently coughed for a moment then heaved as he looked at He Jichen. "I'm sorry, Chen Ge."
"Don't tell me sorry. I won't accept it!" He Jichen angrily turned his back on Han Zhifan.
"Chen Ge, I'm truly sorry. Actually, I wanted to tell you a long time ago, but I just had a sliver of hope you would never find out..."
"Shut up! I told you I'm not going to accept any apologies!"
"Chen Ge, I truly never meant to hurt Xiao Yi. That whole thing was an accident. I felt guilty because I didn't mean to drag Xiao Yi into all this, then afterward I invested so much into Xiao Yi in hopes of making it up to her. Chen Ge, I'm truly sorry..."
"Han Zhifan, do you think there's any use in apologizing?" In contrast with his fury earlier, He Jichen calmed down a lot more, but he was still icy cold.
The coldness and softness in his voice made Han Zhifan's heart a little flustered. He really did care about his brother, He Jichen, so without thinking twice, he said, "Chen Ge, I had my reasons. I know I crossed a line and made you mad, but I really didn't mean to hurt Xiao Yi. I was only going for Cheng Weiwan. You know about my sister, my biological sister Lili, who was a year older than me. She died horrifically on the operating table. My sister was only eighteen years old. She died a month after her coming-of-age ceremony; I'll never forget the scene. Later, I learned that the person who killed my sister was Cheng Weiguo. Cheng Weiwan is Cheng Weiguo's daughter and it's only natural for children to repay their father's debts. I want Cheng Weiguo to feel the pain he inflicted on Lili by giving his daughter a taste of that pain, so I went after Cheng Weiwan. That's why I gave her flowers every day and acted as a hero saving the damsel in distress that night..."
The anger in He Jichen's eyes didn't disappear, but he didn't say anything more.
"As for Xiao Yi, I'm really, really sorry. No matter how you hit or punish me, I have no qualms about that, but Chen Ge, Lili was my sister who I loved and spoiled ever since I was young. She was killed just like that by someone. I can't just sit by and do nothing about it..."
Perhaps her fantasies in the taxi were just too beautiful, but she was in an excellent mood as she rode the elevator up.
Many people knew her at Han Zhifan's office, so as soon as she stepped out of the elevator, Han Zhifan's secretary ran up to her. "Miss Cheng, why are you here?"
Cheng Weiwan noticed something was off with the secretary and assumed something must've happened to Han Zhifan. She hurriedly cut to the chase and asked, "What's wrong? Did something happen?"
"It's Mr. He - he angrily barged into Mr. Han's office and it seems he even hit him. We didn't even dare to go in. Quickly go in and check on them..."
Before the secretary could finish speaking, Cheng Weiwan ran over to Han Zhifan's office.
After two steps, she remembered she was pregnant now, so she turned her jog into a quick walk.
