"Shocked to learn that the hidden yearning actually bore into my bones long ago."
"If it's you in the end, it's truly fine if it's a little late."
"A million beauties in the world, yet you were the only one I fell for."
"You brushed past my adolescence for a moment, but you are stranded in my memory for a lifetime."
Ji Yi didn't know just how many photos she flipped through or how many romantic phrases she read. When she reached the final one, she read a familiar line."I would rather stay within your radius. Should my heart not return to me, it is yours.You can choose to love me or not; I am still yours no matter what."
Those were the lyrics from "Within Your Radius." Why would Yuguang Ge write down the lyrics to the song He Jichen sang?
Ji Yi furrowed her brows in suspicion then continued to read on. She never imagined seeing another familiar line: "The person I love is not my lover."
The person I love is not my lover... He Jichen clearly wrote this three years ago! He wrote these words with his finger on the window of the hot pot restaurant opposite the school!
The person I love is not my lover...
What's going on here? Could it be that He Jichen read what He Yuguang wrote behind these photos, thought they were beautiful and copied them?
Ji Yi hesitated for a moment before she continued to flip through the photos. "Actually, I'm really not so bad. Do you want to try to fall in love with me and not hate me so much?"
This was also what He Jichen said to her...
Ji Yi's mind was a little chaotic. She tried to make sense of it for a while, but she couldn't figure it out. Then she turned to the next photo. "Ji Yi, I really do love you, who I can never be with."
This line made Ji Yi's heart ache for some reason. Then her brows creased harder.
That's not right...if Yuguang Ge wrote this, he would call me "Manman." Why would he call me "Ji Yi"?
But this is Yuguang's handwriting! Back then, he spent a lot of time highlighting passages in my textbook. There's no mistaking it...
The more Ji Yi thought about it, the more she couldn't figure it out. She thought she might as well spread out the final two photos.
On one photo, the words read, "Ji Yi, I'm sorry."
On the other photo, it said: "My name has your surname in it Ji."
"Ji Yi, I'm sorry"... those four words look familiar. Really familiar...
At the bottom of her heart, Ji Yi mumbled two lines then pulled out the purse she always carried with her. She pulled out a note He Jichen wrote for her in the hot pot restaurant.
The four words on her note also read,"Ji Yi, I'm sorry."
Ji Yi put those two sentences together to compare. They were identical!
That's right. This really was He Jichen's writing. If Yuguang Ge wrote this, it'd be "I only see you" - it wouldn't be "My name has your surname in itJi."
So He Jichen wrote this one, but what about this one?
Amongst the pile of photos, Ji Yi pulled out the one that read: "I wish you could be lost forever and come to my side."
The same handwriting... so He Jichen also wrote this?
But if He Jichen wrote these, then in senior high, the highlighted parts in my textbook... He Jichen couldn't have also done those, right?
