Chapter 18: He and I Could Never Happen (8)

At that thought, Lin Ya couldn’t help but shoot a glance at Ji Yi with an ice-cold expression in her eyes.
Throughout dinner, Li Da spoke eloquently and for almost the entire time.
His conversation topics were mostly centered around He Jichen’s glory days in senior high school.
As they continued to chatter away, Li Da suddenly remembered that he didn’t have He Jichen’s contact details yet the meal was almost over. He turned his head towards He Jichen, who hadn’t really spoken during dinner, and said, “Chen Ge, I almost forgot. I forgot to leave you with my contact details. Do you have WeChat? Let’s add each other as friends; then I’ll send you my number.”
He Jichen reached for his phone and tapped the phone screen, then handed it to Li Da.
Li Da took the phone and scanned the screen with his.
Just as he was about to hand it back to He Jichen, Tang Huahua timidly said, “He Xuezhang, can I add you on WeChat too?”
Li Da instinctively looked over at He Jichen, who gave a gentle nod. Then, he handed the phone in his hand to Tang Huahua.
Tang Huahua cheerfully got up and scanned He Jichen’s QR code for WeChat. Upon seeing this, Bo He also added He Jichen on WeChat. Lin Ya had He Jichen’s number, but she didn’t have his WeChat, so she pulled out her phone and scanned it too.
Everyone added him but Ji Yi, who quietly drank her tea with her head down.
Seeing as everyone but Ji Yi scanned He Jichen’s WeChat, Li Da casually asked her, “Xiao Yi, you’re not going to add Chen Ge’s WeChat and leave your contact info?”
Ji Yi stopped drinking her tea and looked down at the redness of her tea for a moment. She finally raised her head and lied with a natural expression on her face, “I forgot to bring my phone; I left it in the hotel room.”
After hearing what Ji Yi said, the thick-skinned Li Da didn’t think twice and returned He Jichen’s phone. Then he asked a question on his mind, “By the way, why do you guys call Chen Ge, ‘ Xuezhang 1 ‘? If I remember correctly, Chen Ge isn’t part of B-film...”
Seeing as it was none of her business, Ji Yi lowered her eyes again.
The corner of her eyes caught a glimpse of He Jichen’s chin. She wasn’t sure if she was seeing things, but his chin seemed to have tightened. An indescribable coldness flowed out.
“He Xuezhang is from B-film...” replied Bo He.
With a mouth full of food, Tang Huahua nodded in agreement.
In a soft tone of voice, Lin Ya added to what Bo He said, “...He Dage is in the directing program, and we’re in the acting program. They’re different degrees.”
Just as Ji Yi was going to continue drinking her tea, her cup suddenly stopped in mid-air when she heard Lin Ya’s words.
He Jichen entered senior high early, but he was the top student in Sucheng. With the highest score in the nationwide college entrance exams, didn’t he get into the prestigious S University? To this day, he was still a legend at Sucheng; why did he change programs and give up his place at a prestigious school to come to B-film?
“Chen Ge, was there some mistake?” Lin Da accidentally knocked the bowl next to his hand, and his voice cracked, as though he’d just heard the most ridiculous thing. “You gave up a glorious spot at a prestigious school with a bright future.. you actually gave up taking over your family business just to go to B-film?”
In stark contrast to Li Da’s commotion, He Jichen looked carefree as usual as he took a long sip of tea, like the person on everyone’s mind wasn’t even him.
