Why's Xie Siyao also leaving so soon?
The smile that crept on Ji Yi's face when she saw He Jichen suddenly disappeared.
He Jichen's grip on the door handle trembled slightly for amoment. Without a moment's hesitation, he turned his head and quietly told Ji Yi, "I'm going over there for a smoke."
As he said this, he shut the door again and walked to the back of the car.
"I never imagined you'd still be here..." He Jichen took just two steps when he heard Xie Siyao's voice. In contrast to earlier, Ji Yi heard the sound of her high heels clearly.
As she drew closer, the sound of her heels grew louder. Then Ji Yi heard Xie Siyao's voice again. "Huh? This is... Mr. He?"
He Jichen's footsteps didn't slow down in the slightest under Xie Siyao's curiosity.
Ji Yi clearly felt Xie Siyao's footsteps speeding up considerably. Just as He Jichen brushed past her, Xie Siyao stopped right in front of him. She raised her head and smiled brightly. "Ah, it's really Mr. He! I thought I got the wrong person."
Having been stopped, He Jichen shot a cold glance at Xie Siyao who wore a friendly smile on her face. He didn't pay her any attention as he sidestepped and tried to continue on his way.
But this time, before He Jichen's feet left the ground, Ji Yi, who was standing beside him, reached out and pulled on his sleeve.
He Jichen's brows twitchedslightly. He turned his head and looked over at Ji Yi.
Ji Yi smiled warmly at He Jichen and hugged the arm she pulled. Then she glued herself onto He Jichen's body completely, smiled right at Xie Siyao, and said, "Miss Xie, may I ask why you're seeking Jichen out?"
Jichen... He Jichen's body instantly froze.
Ever since they got together, she'd always called him "He Jichen." This might've been the first time she called him "Jichen."
Even though many people in this world called him "Jichen," none of them sounded so affectionate and pleasant until she came along.
Xie Siyao probably never imagined Ji Yi react this way. The expression on her face froze for a second before the corners of her lips curved into a warm smile as she said, "Well, it's nothing. When you left, the party was more or less over. I happened to see you both on my way out, so I called out to both of you. After all,the directors and producers are all familiar with He Jichen..."
Ji Yi's smile didn't fade but a cold scoff surfaced from deep in her heart.
She really lives up to the reputation of being Qian Ge's partner. The way she acts is identical to Qian Ge!
Does she think I'm stupid? As if I don't know she deliberately wanted to leave and purposefully attracted the group to the entrance just to embarrass He Jichen?
Deep down, she knew full well why He Jichen said he was going for a smoke when Xie Siyao called her the first time. She also knew that when Xie Siyao saw He Jichen trying to avoid her, she deliberately rushed over to He Jichen to stop him. That was why Ji Yi ignored Xie Siyao in front of He Jichen and pulled him back when he was about to leave again.
She wanted everyone to know that He Jichen was the man she truly loved and the man she was devoting the rest of her life to. No matter how other people viewed him, in her eyes, he was perfect.
What was most important was that she wanted to cheer up He Jichen, even though he lied to her tonight.
With that thought, Ji Yi's smile became warmer. "So I see..."
