He Jichen felt his sleeve being pulled and furrowed his brows slightly as he gradually came back to reality. That was when he heard Ji Yi say, "...How about we go back to the town together and write a letter for Ji Yi twenty,thirty, and forty years in the future? I promise every word will be about you..."
Wasn't she just talking about "You are Yuguang and the rest of my life"?
How did the conversation shift to the letter?
A hint of confusion flashed across He Jichen's eyes as his gaze darted over to Ji Yi's face.
His gaze happened to sweep over the letter clenched in her hands. At first, he didn't think much of it as he averted his gaze upward by two centimeters. But then his eyes shook and came to a stop.
After about two seconds, his gaze retreated back and hovered over the letter.
Isn't that... the letter I mulled over all day long? How did it end up in her hands?
Then she must know I was in a bad mood because of the letter?
She just told me she liked the wrong person all along and actually truly liked me... so after everything, isn't this inadvertently telling her why I was in a terrible mood all day?
What kind of joke is this? Do I have no sense of pride?
The next second, He Jichen reached out and forcefully snatchedthe letter in Ji Yi's hands, scrunched it up into a ball and shoved it into his pocket.
Seeing that he had such a strong reaction, Ji Yi knew her suspicions were right - He Jichen really was upset over the letter the entire day. "Now that it's all cleared up, don't be upset. Since we'll be free for a while, how about we go to the town tomorrow together?"
As soon as Ji Yi said this, He Jichen's cold voice came crashing down. "We're not going!"
Ah... is he acting out?
Ji Yi hugged He Jichen's arm then tightly glued herself onto his body. "Let's goooo, that town is really fun..."
"Let's go! Let's go!"
He Jichen looked like he couldn't be bothered to fight with Ji Yi and ignored her.
"Let's go! Let's go! Let's go!" Ji Yi emphasized it three times like it was very important.
He Jichen swept her a glance. He turned around and looked like he was about to get up and leave.
Latched onto He Jichen's arm, Ji Yi thought she saw something under the dim garden lights. The moment He Jichen turned around, Ji Yi caught a glimpse of a faint tint of red on his fair neck and ears.
So... He Jichen only firmly refused to go to the town with me because he's embarrassed?
But his flushed face looks really cute...
With that thought, Ji Yi became more careful as she tip-toed over to He Jichen's ear before he could leave and whispered, "Hey, He Jichen..."
She deliberately exhaled near his ear.
She clearly felt his body starting to tense up.
As she became secretly happy deep down, she deliberately and softly blew into his ear. "...Were you upset all day today because you were jealous?"
Having been seen through, the redness of his ears turned a darker shade.
The arch of Ji Yi's lips couldn't help but widen. Then with a firmer tone of voice, she said, "You were jealous, weren't you?"
Because Ji Yi's lips were really close to He Jichen's ear, she felt the temperature of his ears rising after her voice dropped.
