She paused. Then her words sounded slightly more resolute as she said, "The man, that night... was you, wasn't it?"
He knew she was referring to what happened a few days agothat night he slept with her. As he was pretending to be He Yuguang, he remained silent.
When she spoke again, her voice sounded a lot more confident. "That night it was you, right?"
He already knew she'd gotten the wrong person that night.
But after posing as his brother like this and hearing her confirm it with her own mouth, he realized the sadness of the truth was quite unbearable.
He was afraid that if he continued on like this, he might lose it, so he might as well leave. But she continued to stubbornly go on as she said, "I know the person that night was you, I..."
Her words are all for my brother... He didn't want to hear any of it in the slightest. His footsteps hastened in hopes of running away from her, but she chased him even more. "A long time ago, I... I noticed you. I..."
Though she stumbled over her words, just as he was about to open the car door, she actually managed to grab onto his sleeves tightly. He turned to look at her.
"I've always liked you. I've liked you for a long time now. Do you..." asked Ji Yi with complete seriousness as she looked into his eyes. Thinking back on it now, his heart still ached. "... like me?"
Like... He liked her. To no avail. She asked if he liked her, yet those words weren't for him.
At this moment, he felt so unjustified for how well he treated her in the past. He Jichen felt his heart gradually grow unstable.
Like... He liked her. To no avail, she asked if he liked her, and yet those words weren't for him. They were for He Yuguang to hear.
In this very moment, he felt so cheated for how well he treated her in the past. He Jichen clearly felt his heart gradually grow unstable.
He tried to force himself to endure the jealousy and rage, but in the end, he couldn't do it. The word "boyfriend" in what she said next, "Will you be my boyfriend..." felt like three swift knives stabbed him brutally at the softest part of his heart.
He didn't even realize what he was doing when his hand grabbed her wrist, dragged her deep into an alley and pushed her hard against the wall. He spewed out bitterly, "Name a price."
He said that just to let her know he wasn't He Yuguang, the person she wanted to confess to, but He Jichen.
He saw with his own eyes just how bewildered she looked when he spoke.
"Give me a figure?" Whether it was a jealous rage in his chest, or his crazy and reckless side ignited inside him, his anger didn't look like it was going to subside. Faced with her silence, he lost even more control as he reached his arm out and ripped her top. He glanced down at her exposed skin with a cold look and thought back to how she called him "Yuguang" that night. After suppressing his emotions for so many days, he suddenly erupted. "See? Even if you stripped your clothes off in front me, I wouldnt be the least bit interested in you!"
