Busy spending time at home with my wife...
A second ago, Ji Yi was burning with anger, but the second after hearing that line, her lips couldn't help but curve.
Xie Siyao was obviously slyly provoking He Jichen, but who knew that He Jichen would actually reply to her with a line like that? Incidentally, Xie Siyao's punch landed on wool; its impact was stunted.
Ji Yi instinctively averted her gaze over to Xie Siyao's face.
So she just had the same thought! Xie Siyao's smile turned stiff.
Xie Siyao sensed Ji Yi staring at her. Right as Ji Yi stared at her, Xie Siyao also glanced back at Ji Yi.
Ji Yi instantly felt better when she met Xie Siyao's gaze. The corners of her lips deliberately curved more visibly.
As Xie Siyao's gaze fell on Ji Yi's smile, it was particularly irritating to her and the expression on Xie Siyao's face worsened.
Having achieved her goal, Ji Yi's smile grew bright.
Xie Siyao was so angry that her hands clenched into fists. The moment He Jichen reached his hand out to pull the car door open, she abruptly blurted, "Mr. He, do you mean to say that after retiring from showbiz, you haven't been working?"
Xie Siyao put extra emphasis on the words "after retiring from showbiz" again.
How can someone be so b*tchy?
Ji Yi felt good for just one second when all of a sudden, her anger rose once again.
She withdrew her smile and looked over at Xie Siyao. "Xie Siyao, you..." she blurted coldly.
"Xiao Yi." Ji Yi only let out a few words when He Jichen, who was standing beside her, flatly stopped her.
Ji Yi turned and looked over at He Jichen.
She thought He Jichen would retaliate by saying something back to Xie Siyao like before.
Who knew that He Jichen would actually pull out his phone and make a call?
After a couple seconds, the call went through, and He Jichen's voice softly rang in the night air. "Where are you now? Ah, okay, the entrance of China World Hotel Beijing..."
It wasn't clear who the person over the phone was or what they said, but He Jichen lowered the phone from his ear and pushed the button to hang up.
Ji Yi and the group of people beside them stared at He Jichen with an odd look on their faces as they assumed he was going to say something but instead, he ended up making a call. After he hung up, everyone waited for what He Jichen was going to say next.
Even Ji Yi was waiting.
Who knew that He Jichen would elegantly stand by the car without any hint of uttering a word?
Gradually, Ji Yi couldn't help herself. She leaned closer to He Jichen and wanted to quietly ask him why he wasn't saying anything. All of a sudden, a car stopped right in front of He Jichen.
The car door opened. The first to step out was a gentleman in an all-black suit. Thereafter, two women in uniforms stepped out of the passenger car door.
The gentleman bowed politely to He Jichen and cried, "Mr. He". Then he walked around to the back of the car and opened the trunk.
The two women quickly caught up to the gentleman and hurriedly carried a couple of shoe boxes from the truck.
The gentleman brought out a foldable chair and a rug. He walked over to Ji Yi and first placed down the rug. Then he opened the chair and placed it on the rug. Thereafter, he turned around and politely said, "Miss Ji, please take a seat."
