The moment she opened the door, the doorbell to He Jichen’s suite coincidentally rang.
Ji Yi wasn’t the least bit interested in who rang for He Jichen, nor did she care to glance at who it was. With her head low, she was just about to say: “Excuse me, could you please move aside” when Bo He said with a little uncertainty, “Xiao Yi?”
Ji Yi quickly swallowed her words. Besides Bo He, Lin Ya and Tang Huahua were also there.
“Xiao Yi, why are you...” blurted Tang Huahua, as though she didn’t dare believe her eyes. However, before she could finish speaking, Bo He nudged her in the arm and shot her a look.
Tang Huahua suddenly understood what Bo He meant and immediately shut her mouth.
From what Tang Huahua and Bo He knew, Ji Yi knew He Jichen solely through Lin Ya and He Jichen was Lin Ya’s boyfriend.
In that very moment, if Ji Yi wasn’t in He Jichen’s room to throw herself at him, then He Jichen was cheating on Lin Ya.
They were only there with Lin Ya to look for He Jichen, but in the end, they stumbled upon this...
Every so often, Tang Huahua and Bo He shot each other a glance.
The atmosphere turned a little awkward.
Ji Yi knew that Tang Huahua and Bo He had misunderstood.
But then again, it wasn’t their fault. A woman who appears in a man’s room in the middle of the night—it’s hard for anyone not to misunderstand.
Without a second thought, Ji Yi said, “Lin Ya, you...”
Lin Ya spoke at the same time. However, her words weren’t directed at her but at He Jichen, who was standing not too far behind her, “He Dage, we just ordered dinner and since you’re here, we wanted to ask if you wanted any.”
Though his anger had simmered down significantly, He Jichen still looked upset from his outburst. At Lin Ya’s gentle voice, he raised his eyelids and shook his head slightly to decline the offer.
“Then He Dage, if you’re hungry later, let me know,” said Lin Ya softly with a gentle smile, as though she didn’t mind He Jichen’s silence in the slightest.
This time, she didn’t wait for He Jichen to respond. Instead, she stared at Ji Yi with soft eyes as though she didn’t have a clue why she was there. In an innocent and inquisitive voice, she asked, “Xiao Yi, it’s so late. Why are you in He Dage’s room?”
Of all people, shouldn’t she know best as to why I’m here?
Ji Yi furrowed her brows and came to a vague understanding.
Bo He and Tang Huahua had no idea Lin Ya asked Ji Yi to help her with a favor. Now that they heard Lin Ya ask this to Ji Yi, they assumed Lin Ya was telling her off.
Everyone lived under the same roof in the same dorm. Bo He really didn’t want their relationship to disintegrate, so she quickly tried to smooth things over, “If I remember correctly, Xiao Yi spent her senior high in Sucheng and He Jichen is from Sucheng. Who knows, maybe they knew each other before. Maybe Xiao Yi was looking for He Tongxue to talk about something important.”
