He Jichen didn't say a word, but Chen Bai saw a hint of his brow loosening up.
Chen Bai knew it meant He Jichen wanted to read the contract...
He didn't say anything more but grabbed the document from his briefcase in the front passenger seat. He opened it and gave it a quick read over. Once he was sure he hadn't made a mistake, he turned around and handed it to He Jichen sitting behind him.
The corners of He Jichen's lips twitched as he silently reached over to take the document.
When the red light turned green, Chen Bai held onto the steering wheel and stepped on the gas again.
While the car drove down the road, the reading light in the back seat was turned on and the crisp sound of paper turning could be heard.
The car was very silent. Chen Bai, who was staring at the road ahead, was a little curious about He Jichen reading the document so every now and then, he peered into the rearview mirror.
He Jichen flipped through the document rigorously. Chen Bai wasn't sure which page he was reading, but it looked like his pressure points had been hit as he didn't flinch at all.
When they reached theunderground parking lot of He Jichen's apartment, Chen Bai glanced over at He Jichen again and saw that he was still staring at the document in silence. Chen Bai couldn't help but prompt him, "Mr. He, we're here."
He was met with a wall of silence.
Chen Bai waited for a while. Seeing as He Jichen didn't react, he was about to call his name again. All of a sudden, He Jichen softly said a few words.
Because he spoke very quietly, Chen Bai simply couldn't hear him.
The silent atmosphere continued to envelop the car for a while before a faint word escaped He Jichen's lips, "...cry..."
He said a couple of words, but Chen Bai only heard the single word "cry."
Chen Bai was just about to ask He Jichen why he was crying...
When in the end, before the words could reach his lips, he looked at He Jichen's fingers gently placed on top of the document.
He Jichen's fingers trembled like crazy as Chen Bai's heart shook. He instinctively raised his chin and caught sight of a teardrop beneath He Jichen's fingers.
So Mr. He meant to say that... Miss Ji cried when she signed it?
The thought just flashed across Chen Bai's mind when he heard a faint mumble from within the car. Chen Bai probably guessed right as he picked up He Jichen's slurred words. "...I made her cry again..."
Ji Yi's mood took a dive again because she accidentally bumped into He Jichen.
After returning to the private room, not only was she not in the mood to sing, but she wasn't even in the mood to talk.
Bo He could tell she was in a terrible mood, so not long after, she suggested that they leave.
They paid the bill before Bo He and Ji Yi called their respective taxis.
Just as the three of them reached the lobby of The Golden Lounge, Bo He's taxi back to B-Film arrived.
Ji Yi said her goodbyes to Bo He and Tang Huahua then the two entered the taxi. After they left, Ji Yi walked over to the sidewalk.
Before she could take two steps, she saw He Jichen in the distance leaning against a lamppost, smoking with his head down.
Ji Yi's footsteps involuntarily came to a stop.
She didn't call him like she did at the restroom door. Instead, she just stared at him silently.
Chen Bai's car appeared. He Jichen got in and left with Ji Yi still staring in a daze at the spot where he was standing.
