Tang Huahua thought she was hearing things when she heard Ji Yi hurriedly saying, "Sorry, excuse me" from behind. After hesitating for two seconds, she turned her head to see Ji Yi running to the door while holding her heels in one hand and raising her dress in the other without a care about her image.
If someone took a photo and uploaded it online, wouldn't there be some kind of uproar?
Tang Huahua bolted up from the sofa without even bothering with her bag and ran over to Ji Yi's direction.
"Miss, Miss, Your bag!" cried the waitress carrying out her bag when she noticed that Tang Huahua left it behind.
After running for about five meters, Tang Huahua heard the waitress' voice then instinctively stopped running. She turned around and headed back to the waitress then hurriedly said, "Thanks." She took her bag then quickly ran out of the lobby.
After some distance, Tang Huahua caught glimpse of a barefoot Ji Yi looking left and right, walking back.
She looked like she was searching for something.
Tang Huahua instinctively thought that Ji Yi's old sickness was flaring up again and she was hallucinating again, looking for He Jichen like she did on New Year's Eve. She felt a dull pain in her heart and slowed down. After a few seconds, she waited for the pain to subside then sped up and walked up to Ji Yi. "Xiao Yi."
When Ji Yi heard someone calling her, she abruptly turned around as though she was pleasantly surprised by something. Without waiting for Tang Huahua to finish, she leaped over to her and grabbed her arm. "Huahua, do you know who I saw?" Ji Yi asked in excitement.
"You won't believe me, but I saw him!"
"Back then, in room number one, I saw him! I really saw him! He Jichen's back! He's really back!"
As Ji Yi went on, she cried excitedly with her head up, revealing the mess on her face. She was so ecstatic that she completely jumped up. "I'm not lying, Huahua! It's true! He's Ning Ning. He's Ning Ning!"
When Tang Huahua heard this, she realized Ji Yi wasn't hallucinating, but she didn't dare to believe it. All she could do was change the topic and comforted Ji Yi: "Xiao Yi, put on your shoes first. People are watching you and it'd be bad if they took photos."
"Oh, oh," said Ji Yi two consecutive times. After she swiftly put on her shoes, she grabbed Tang Huahua's arms and said, "Huahua, he's finally back! Do you know how hard it was waiting for him? He's finally back! This time, I definitely won't let him leave me!"
"Xiao Yi, be reasonable. Don't get so worked up. You say you saw He Jichen, but where is he?"
Tang Huahua silenced Ji Yi with her question.
Ji Yi saw how happy He Jichen was, but he said just a few cold words in an indifferent tone then left...
A bleak look surfaced on Ji Yi's face as she looked down and softly replied, "He's gone."
"Gone?" Tang Huahua furrowed her brows.
"He didn't even eat dinner with me and left," said Ji Yi softly.
