With boarding pass in hand, Chen Bai walked with He Jichen all the way to the security check before he came to a stop.
The two of them said goodbye as they stood there chatting for a long time. He Jichen reached out and took his boarding pass from Chen Bai then he turned around and walked into the security check.
Chen Bai must've called his name because after taking just two steps, He Jichen stopped and turned back to look at him.
Ji Yi wasn't sure what Chen Bai said to He Jichen, but He Jichen's face froze slightly. He looked as though he was contemplating something, but after a long while, his lips moved a little before he turned around and strode down the VIP path to the security check.
Ji Yi retracted her entranced gaze from the security check after He Jichen's silhouette disappeared from sight completely.
The large airport was filled with the noisy chatter of people all around, but to her, it suddenly felt like she was the only one left in the world.
She felt a little lost and helpless; she glanced left and right for a long time as though she was searching for something. She stared and stared until her vision became so blurry that she couldn't see a thing.
After Chen Bai finished the check-in procedures, he walked He Jichen over to the security check. That was when he noticed Ji Yi.
He was so stunned that he stopped for a moment, but he saw that He Jichen was walking some distance ahead, so he quickly caught up.
As they reached the security check, the two of them came to a stop.
It was time to say goodbye. Before Chen Bai could say anything, He Jicehn said, "Please do take good care of her."
Even though He Jichen didn't mention a name, Chen Bai knew he was referring to Ji Yi.
Chen Bai gently nodded. "Mr. Chen, don't worry. I've already handed Huan Ying my resume. They called yesterday to set up a meeting with me."
"Mhm," responded He Jichen. He then replied after a short while, "Thank you."
"Of course," said Chen Bai.
Silence fell between the two of them.
Soon after, He Jichen added, "If you can't resolve anything, you can look for Han Zhifan."
After a pause, He Jichen didn't wait for Chen Bai to speak before adding, "His family background and business is powerful in Beijing, so there may be many situations when it'll be easier for him to resolve things. What's more, he also has Lin Sheng."
He's about to leave, yet everything he mentions is about Miss Ji...
Chen Bai's heart ached all of a sudden as he turned his head and looked over at the security check nearby before replying, "I got it."
He Jichen gently let out an "Mhm." A few seconds passed as he stood on the spot like there was nothing else left to say before he finally said, "I'm off then."
"Mr. He," Chen Bai instinctively cried out He Jichen's name.
He Jichen knew he was going to try to persuade him to stay, so he didn't wait for him to say anything and took his boarding pass from him. Then he turned and walked over to the security check.
After taking no more than two steps, Chen Bai's voice was heard again, "Mr. He, she's here."
It felt like He Jichen's pressure points were hit as he suddenly stopped.
Chen Bai added, "She came to the airport."
He Jichen knew he meant Ji Yi. He slowly turned around and looked over at Chen Bai.
"I just saw her. She's here to see you off. She's just over there. Would you like to say goodbye to her?"
Chen Bai waited for a while, but seeing as He Jichen looked unwilling to say anything, Chen Bai then added, "I'll help you go call..."
Before Chen Bai could finish, He Jichen spoke up: "No."
