That was when Ji Yi started to get worried. She hurriedly ran over to the bar counter, pointed at her table and anxiously asked the server, "Excuse me, did you see where the woman sitting at that table went?"
The server heard what Ji Yi said and stopped what he was doing. He looked towards the direction of her finger and back at Ji Yi like she recognized her. Without saying a word, he grabbed a note from the table and handed it to Ji Yi.
Ji Yi stared at the note in confusion for a while then picked it up.
She opened it up to see a message from Cheng Weiwan. "Xiao Yi, I wanted to be alone for a bit, so I left first. Sorry."
Cheng Weiwan actually left on her own. She was in a terrible mood; she couldn't be hiding somewhere to cry, could she?
With that thought, she politely said "thanks" to the server and reached for her phone to call Cheng Weiwan.
Cheng Weiwan didn't pick up her phone. Just as Ji Yi was about to call again, she got a text message from Cheng Weiwan: "Xiao Yi, I'm fine. You don't need to call me."
Ji Yi knew Cheng Weiwan wouldn't pick up if she called again, so she tapped on her keyboard and replied with one line: "You have to take care. If you need anything, call me at any time."
Ji Yi replied with a hug emoji then stared at her phone screen for a while. She didn't wait for Cheng Weiwan's message, knowing that she wouldn't reply.
Ji Yi put her phone away, a little worried. She then raised her head and happened to catch He Jichen and Chen Bai walking over to her.
"Miss Ji, what happened?" asked Chen Bai.
"It's Wanwan..." Ji Yi waved the note in her hand but spoke to He Jichen who stopped and stared at her. "... She left a note and left on her own."
"So scriptwriter Cheng was here. Is she..."
Knowing what happened with Cheng Weiwan, Chen Bai naturally wanted to express a few words of concern, but before he could finish by saying "alright?", He Jichen flatly interrupted him: "And what about you?"
Ji Yi was stunned by He Jichen's question. A few seconds later, she realized what He Jichen meant. With Cheng Weiwan gone, what was she going to do since she made plans to have dinner with Cheng Weiwan?
Ji Yi wanted to ask He Jichen to eat with her, but then she thought about He Yuguang and He Jichen's marriage certificate and couldn't bring herself to ask.
"If you're not doing anything in the evening, how about we have dinner together?" asked He Jichen when he saw that Ji Yi wasn't moving or saying anything.
It was so difficult for them to bump into each other. Even though Ji Yi knew that the closer she got to He Jichen, the more she would suffer, she still hesistated for two seconds before smiling at He Jichen. "Sure."
"What do you want to eat?" He Jichen glanced outsid the bar and waited for Ji Yi to walk ahead before he raised his feet.
"Anything." Ji Yi replied with the universal answer, but deep down, she secretly thought: As long as I can eat with you, I'll be happy eating anything.
In the end, He Jichen took Ji Yi to a new Thai restaurant near YR plaza and her parent's house.
