By the time Ji Yi fell asleep from exhaustion, it was almost one in the morning.
He Jichen picked up the phone from the bedside table. He glanced at the screen. It was a text from Zhuang Yi received over two hours ago. "Mr. He, I'm here."
He Jichen didn't reply to Zhuang Yi but put his phone down and gently pulled off the covers. He walked into the bathroom to quickly freshen up then walked over to the bed in his loungewear. When he was certain Ji Yi was really asleep, he carefully pulled the covers over her. He grabbed his phone and wallet then walked out of the bedroom.
The cafe was close to the apartment - it was just over two hundred meters away, but He Jichen still chose to drive there.
There were no vacant parking spaces near the cafe, so He Jichen randomly found an empty space by the roundabout and walked over.
There were no other customers in the cafe aside from Zhuang Yi.
Perhaps it was because she waited so long that Zhuang Yi was a little bored, so she was lying on the sofa and had almost dozed off. It wasn't until He Jichen walked up to her, the waiter handed him the menu and asked what he would like to order that Zhuang Yi woke up. She straightened up and cried out, "Mr. He."
He Jichen ignored Zhuang Yi. He pointed to an item on the menu and asked for a cup of coffee.
After the waiter left, Zhuang Yi spoke again. "Mr. He, is there something you wanted to talk about with me?"
He Jichen didn't say anything but looked at Zhuang Yi in the eye.
Zhuang Yi was a splendid manager in the industry. She was always able to hold down a situation, but at that very moment, she just sat there wearily under He Jichen's glare.
She vaguely understood why He Jichen had called her out, but she made a promise to Ji Yi, so she was torn for a while. In the end, she chose to act dumb and repeated what she just said. "Mr. He, is there something you wanted to talk about with me?"
The waiter brought the coffee He Jichen ordered. He put it to his lips and elegantly took a sip. When he put the cup down, He Jichen flatly swept her a look. "You know what I want to hear."
"I'm not particularly clear about..."
He Jichen didn't wait for Zhuang Yi to finish pretending to play dumb before he said with a cold tone of voice: "Zhuang Yi, I didn't believe Xiao Yi because I could tell she wanted to lie to me. I let her lie to me."
Zhuang Yi didn't say anything more.
"I'm asking you because I don't want to have to personally go to the studio. If you don't tell me, I'll go to the studio right now."
Zhuang Yi knew full well that He Jichen saw through Ji Yi's act. Even if she wanted to help Ji Yi hide the truth, she couldn't with He Jichen.
Rather than for him to run over to the studio and cause trouble, she might as well tell him.
Zhuang Yi was deep in thought for a while then finally said, "Xiao Yi did get into an argument on set..."
"Because of Xie Siyao?"
"No." Zhuang Yi shook her head. "It was Yang Li."
Yang Li? He Jichen furrowed his brows.
Zhuang Yi assumed He Jichen forgot who Yang Li was, so she quickly said, "He's been quite popular for the past two years. He even came to see you back when he was filming. He's the number one guy at HT..."
He Jichen let out an "Mhm" and said nothing more. He flashed a look at Zhuang Yi as if to tell her to get to the point.
"I don't know if you know that this guy is rather perverted - he's famous for being a playboy in the industry. He's been in relationships with many female celebrities..." Zhuang Yi paused for a moment then really got to the main point. "He's interested in Xiao Yi."
