The moment he left the lounge, Chen Bai stopped, turned around and glanced at He Jichen. With a moment's hesitation, he said, "When Miss Ji saw your signature, her first reaction was to rub the letters..."
At the time, my own heart ached when I saw her do it. How must Mr. He feel?
Deep down, he understood that if Mr. He knew, he would definitely feel terrible. However, Chen Bai felt as though Mr. He should still know that the woman he loved and sacrificed everything for didn't immediately misunderstand him after seeing his signature...
"...Miss Ji even asked to see you. I told her that there was no point in seeing you. She asked me if something happened for you to do such a thing."
Chen Bai clearly saw He Jichen's body sway for a second before his head quickly turned to the window.
"Miss Ji even asked if this was similar to the scandal during Chinese new year and if you were giving her some kind of surprise."
"She even asked if you really wanted to send her to Huan..."
Chen Bai didn't manage to say the final word "Ying" when He Jichen cried, "Get out!"
His voice was loud and his tone wavered as though he was afraid of something.
After saying everything he wanted to say, Chen Bai spoke no more and swiftly left He Jichen's office.
After he heard the door close, He Jichen stared out the window as a tint of red slowly crept up around his eyes.
While the wetness blurred his vision, he suddenly remembered a song.
"Can't speak about the sadness when breaking up. When friends ask you about me, I always play it down like I never loved you. I never told anyone that actually, I can't live without you."
"Actually, the love I gave you was more than you imagined. Actually, I love you more than you imagine."
Eventually, Ji Yi decided to sign the document.
In actuality, she really didn't want to sign it at all. She really wanted to stay at YC so she could keep seeing him. Even if she couldn't see him, they were at least in the same place and they belonged in the same company: YC.
That way, she could at least imagine she was close to He Jichen.
If she signed it, she was afraid they'd be worlds apart. If neither of them took the initiative to call the other, it'd be really difficult to see each other again.
But despite how unwilling she was to sign, she waited for herself to calm down before seriously analyzing their situation. She realized that signing was the best ending for them both.
It wasn't because Chen Bai's words were hurtful, but it was mostly because they wouldn't have a good ending.
He Jichen was already married. The person he married was the woman he loved deeply for many years - "Cola Girl." He wouldn't t divorce "Cola Girl."
Even if he really got a divorce, she liked He Yuguang and she even got married to him! Even if she was now completely in love with He Jichen, she couldn't hurt He Yuguang.
There was no way she could stop loving He Jichen. Every time she saw him, it was hard for her to control herself.
Since she could no longer bear the pain and torture of not being with him, she thought she might as well swiftly cut ties like she did with He Yuguang.
It'd definitely hurt, but the pain would only be temporary.
So, she might as well use this chance to swiftly break things off.
Ji Yi cried all night after she made the decision.
Fortunately, she didn't have any scenes to shoot the next day, otherwise, she was afraid that even makeup wouldn't be able to cover up her puffy eyes.
Since she made the decision, Ji Yi didn't give herself any chance to back out. When she woke up the next morning, the first thing she did was flip through the document.
