Though they were quite some distance apart, he clearly saw her fingers tremble.
He Jichen’s mouth pursed slightly as he stared at Ji Yi’s fingers for a few seconds, then he opened his mouth.
The words he wanted to say didn’t manage to escape his lips before Ji Yi, who had her back turned from the door, suddenly repeated Lin Ya’s words, “After I’ve treated you so well all this time...” Her tone of voice wasn’t pitiful like Lin Ya’s but taunting instead.
“Huh...” chortled Ji Yi as she said that. “...Lin Ya, doesn’t your face hurt after saying those things?”
“Ji Yi, what do you mean? You were obviously the one who used me, and you schemed to embarrass me in front of so many people. Not only are you not the least bit sorry, you have the nerve to say such things. Just what the hell do you want?” Lin Ya cried violently and started to shiver as though Ji Yi had frightened her. She looked as innocent and pitiful as could be.
Bo He and Tang Huahua stared at Ji Yi, visibly upset.
Ji Yi pretended as though she hadn’t seen Lin Ya’s reaction and stared unwaveringly at her. “What do I want to do? I don’t want to do anything. I just want to ask you a question. Lin Ya, everything you said tonight—were you messing around or were you for real?”
“Xiao Yi, at a time like this, are you still not going to admit you tried to sabotage me? You still want to berate me and blame the victim...”
B lame the victim... Nice word choice. Just who’s blaming the victim here?
Ji Yi didn’t wait for poor, teary-eyed Lin Ya to finish speaking as she interrupted in a low and a far more serious tone of voice, “Don’t talk shit to me!”
Since Ji Yi’s tone of voice was so aggressive, Bo He couldn’t help but cry out, “Xiao Yi!”
Ji Yi ignored Bo He’s complaints and stared at Lin Ya, speaking freely, “Lin Ya, answer me this. Are you just messing with me, or are you for real?!”
“Xiao Yi, I never thought you were this type of person...” Lin Ya avoided her questions like before.
Ji Yi didn’t say anything but immediately removed her waterproof watch.
“I truly saw you as a friend. Even then, after I learned that you used me and embarrassed me...” continued Lin Ya.
Ji Yi pretended as though she didn’t hear what Lin Ya said and clicked a button on her watch with disregard for everyone around her.
“...Though I’m really upset and angry, I don’t really blame you...”
Ji Yi put the watch to her ear as though she was trying to hear something.
“...I still hope we can continue to be friends...”
Ji Yi brought the watch down from her ear and quickly clicked the button on her watch a few times.
“...So much so that I want to tell Bo He and Tang Huahua that we should pretend what happened to us tonight never happened at all. The four of us are still best roommates and best frie—”
Before Lin Ya could finish her final word, a voice was suddenly heard, “Xiao Yi, can you do me a favour?”
