Chapter 708: He Jichen isHe Yuguang (18)

She stared at Chen Bai, who had been averting his eyes from her and looking to the side for a while. All of a sudden, Ji Yi remembered something and said, "He was afraid these things would drag me down, so he kept his distance..."

This time, Ji Yi didn't add "Am I right?" or "Isn't it?"

Even though she asked so many questions, Chen Bai didn't give her a reply. However, in her heart, Ji Yi knew everything she said was right.

"I knew it. He didn't really want to send me to Huan Ying. I knew it. Something happened, so that's why he did those things. I knew it. I was right to think that at the time. I knew it. I knew it. I knew it..."

Ji Yi appeared to have completely lost it when she repeatedly said "I knew it" four more times. Towards the end, a single tear fell from the corner of her eye.

Back when she was signing the papers, she had her suspicions, but she remembered that He Jichen was married. She also thought about Yuguang Ge. It would've been better to cut things off between them sooner rather than later, so she signed it. But she never imagined that... What happened to He Jichen would be this serious...

If she knew earlier that he would have to experience all this, she never would've signed the papers and she definitely would've stayed by him.

He'd stayed with her through everything that happened for over a year now. However, he was now all alone in America...

Ji Yi's incessant repetitions of "I knew it" suddenly changed to "I need to go find him..."

As she said this, Ji Yi turned around and ran towards the door.

"Xiao Yi!"

"Miss Ji!"

Zhuang Yi and Chen Bai cried out at the same time.

Ji Yi pretended as though she hadn't heard them and continued to say the five words "I need to go find him" as she sped up.

Chen Bai's legs were long and his steps were wide, so with just two or three steps, he was able to catch up to Ji Yi and pull her back by the arm.

"Let me go! I need to go find him..." Ji Yi struggled with all her strength then cried weakly, "...I have to go find him, Chen Bai. Let go, let go..."

Chen Bai gulped, ignoring Ji Yi's pleas. He tightened his grip on Ji Yi's arm and brought her back to the sofa. "Miss Ji, you can't find Mr. He."

Can't find... Those two words instantly triggered Ji Yi as she struggled like crazy. Her voice sounded even more helpless. "I have to go find him. I told you! I have to go find him! Let go of me, Chen Bai. I said let go of me!"

"Xiao Yi, you have to calm down. Xiao Yi..." cried Zhuang Yi.

Right now, Ji Yi wasn't going to listen to what anyone said. Seeing that Chen Bai wasn't letting go of her, she started to curse at him. "You pr*ck! Chen Bai, let go of me! Chen Bai, you a**hole. Let go of me!"

From start to end, Chen Bai didn't utter a word. He just pulled out his phone from his pocket, called He Jichen's number then pressed thespeakerphone button.

"Sorry, the number you have dialed is not active."

The service announcement suddenly calmed Ji Yi down.

Chen Bai tried to call He Jichen again.

"Sorry, the number you have dialed is not active."

This time, Ji Yi heard it loud and clear. She stared transfixed at the phone screen for a while then gradually raised her wet eyelashes up at Chen Bai.
