The words Lin Ya was about to speak suddenly dissipated into nothingness.
This... this is obviously my voice, but I didn’t say that earlier...
Bo He and Tang Huahua were also completely astonished.
The corridors were extremely quiet to the extent that you could hear Ji Yi’s voice, crystal clear: “What’s up??”
“My thing came...”
When Lin Ya’s voice was heard again, they finally suddenly snapped back to their senses and instinctively looked at the watch in Ji Yi’s hand.
So all this time, this watch they were looking at was no ordinary watch; it could record.
“...I felt a little strange just now so I went to buy some water. On the way, I took a turn into the restroom and found out that it really did come. I don’t know what’s going on this month... It came a few days early, so I’m not prepared. Maybe it was because I soaked in the hot springs—it’s a little heavy...”
Lin Ya and Ji Yi were whispering at the time, so the recording was a bit hard to hear. Even if Ji Yi turned up the volume to its very loudest, they still couldn’t quite make out some words. But with the words they could hear, they could make out it was Lin Ya’s voice, along with what she was saying.
Lin Ya’s face gradually turned pale, and her eyes shot over to He Jichen standing behind Ji Yi. She was visibly unsteady.
“...The supermarket is a little far from our room and since we’re only here for a night, I only brought an extra pair of pants. I’m scared that if I move around too much, I’ll get my clothes dirty so Xiao Yi, could you pick up some pads for me?”
The air in the hallway instantly turned tense with the sound of Lin Ya’s recorded voice.
Bo He and Tang Huahua looked over at Lin Ya.
Lin Ya’s pale face was flushed as she tightly pursed her lips and clutched her sleeves. She looked exactly like a thief being caught at the scene.
The recording was still going.
The hallway was frighteningly silent.
“...I’m about to go back to my room to get some rest, so drop it off at my room...”
With that, Ji Yi replied, “Mm, alright.” That was when Lin Ya remembered what she said afterwards and like she’d just been electrocuted, her whole body trembled. Then her whole body lurched towards Ji Yi with her claws. “Enough! Stop it!”
As she screamed, she hurled her handbag at Ji Yi’s head.
Unprepared, Ji Yi wasn’t ready for an attack by Lin Ya, so she didn’t have time to dodge.
While she stared at the bag on the verge of hitting her face, a forceful hand grabbed her arm. With quick reflexes, her entire body was dragged backwards.
The bag brushed past Ji Yi’s head and hit the door with a “Bang”!
Ji Yi only recovered from her shock seconds later.
He Jichen had pulled her away at the most crucial moment.
She didn’t even think about why He Jichen did such a thing before she instinctively pulled away from He Jichen’s hands. Then she took two steps forward and stood directly in front of Lin Ya.
