Chapter 29: Thank You for Your Generosity (9)

Her reaction was so intense—was she afraid of everyone hearing the words she said next?
Ji Yi wasn’t a particularly virtuous person, but she never bothered anyone if they didn’t bother her. Since Lin Ya came looking for trouble, she wasn’t going to just idly sit around!
In the middle of the scuffle, the recording finished playing but Ji Yi wasn’t done. She rewound the recording a little and continued to play it.
“...I almost forgot, Xiao Yi. I’m not in the room next to yours anymore, I moved to room 1808....”
Ji Yi waited for Lin Ya’s words to completely finish playing before she refastened her watch onto her wrist. Then she nonchalantly raised her eyelids and stared coldly at Lin Ya. “I gave you a chance, but you didn’t want it!”
Lin Ya’s face was frighteningly pale as she bit down on her lips so hard that they turned blue. Despite this, Ji Yi didn’t hold back; in fact, she became even more swift and fierce like a queen, full of gloating. “Since you already know the big shot Ji Yi who joined B-film four years ago is no ordinary person, let me offer you a bit of advice: don’t mess with me!”
Ji Yi then turned right around and strode out in her high heels.
Bo He and Tang Huahua didn’t snap back to reality until Ji Yi stepped into the elevator.
The two of them glanced at Lin Ya, then they each found an excuse to leave.
All of a sudden, it was just the two of them—Lin Ya and He Jichen—left in the corridors.
Lin Ya lowered her head, a little afraid to look at He Jichen.
Actually, she never wanted to take on Ji Yi; she only planned tonight’s act because of He Jichen.
She was popular for being the most beautiful woman in B-film. There were so many guys lusting after her that they could form two rings around the school track, but her standards were too high. Not a single one of them caught her eye until she met He Jichen.
She had a friend from her hometown who studied in the directing program. It was because of him that she was able to meet He Jichen. From that point onwards, she often hung around her directing friend just so she could try to catch He Jichen’s eye, but he never paid any attention to her. It wasn’t until a month ago when she picked up Ji Yi’s call while in the middle of a conversation with her friend that it all started.
That day, they were eating at the canteen. She deliberately sat next to He Jichen, and when she cried “Ji Yi”, He Jichen turned his head and shot her a glance.
At the time, she thought the look was because she was a little too loud, but after that meal, he began to show up at different points in her day. She figured that she’d finally gotten his attention, so she was unbelievably happy inside.
Later, what made her even happier was when she went over to clean her plate that he came up to her and asked, “Classmate, can I get your number?”
In that very moment, she was ecstatic.
She tried her best to contain her excitement and tried to casually exchange numbers with him.
She often made the first move to contact him. He rarely replied so she assumed it was just because his personality was naturally distant.
Even though he didn’t explicitly express that he wanted to be with her, she didn’t clear things up when Tang Huahua and Bo He mistook them for being a couple.
Because she felt that they already were a couple.
Otherwise, why would he invite her to dinner and to parties?
Oh wait—he never really invited just me. Every time, he said the four words, “You and your roommates”...
But at the time, she was so overcome with happiness to be able to get closer to him that she didn’t notice anything wrong with his words.
That is, until the night of the outdoor party. When she came back from the party, Ji Yi told her that He Jichen had called the dorm room’s phone to look for her.
