Chapter 39: Let Her Leave (9)

Could it possibly be that he’s...
For some reason, the thought of Lin Ya suddenly flashed across Ji Yi’s mind. Her whole body froze like her pressure points had been pressed. After some time, she continued her thought.
... trying to apologize on behalf of Lin Ya?
He was Lin Ya’s boyfriend—Bo He and Tang Huahua both said she moved in with He Jichen. Yesterday, she saw the two of them together outside the supermarket with her own eyes.
Back at the hot spring resort, Lin Ya was exposed for doing such outrageous things to me that she moved out of the dorm room. As her boyfriend, he probably didn’t want his girlfriend to fall out like that with her roommates, so maybe that’s why he was so patient with me. He tried to get me to eat the congee and take the medicine to express his apologies. He hoped that I could consider the fact that he saved me last night to stop arguing with Lin Ya over the past...
Ji Yi knew just how much He Jichen hated her. He definitely wouldn’t have done this out of genuine care for her, so the more she thought about it, the more she was convinced by her own reasoning.
He Jichen handed the cup of water and medicine to Ji Yi. He waited a moment, then seeing as she was staring at a random spot on the ground with no reaction, he said, “Take the medicine.”
A second later, it was like he suddenly remembered something. He turned his head towards Zhang Sao who was about to leave and instructed her, “Zhang Sao, find some paper and write down Dr. Zhu’s instructions on how often to take the medicine. Give it to her later...”
Zhang Sao didn’t have time to say “yes” before Ji Yi snapped back to reality and the words “It’s okay” slipped out.
After hearing Ji Yi say this, Zhang Sao hurriedly swallowed her words and looked over at He Jichen with a little confusion.
Ji Yi instinctively knew that Zhang Sao would look to He Jichen for clarification, so she turned to look at him too. She repeated it again, “Really, it’s okay...”
He Jichen didn’t say anything, but his gaze towards the door turned blank. After a while, he blinked gently and looked over at Zhang Sao again. He wanted to give her a nod to tell her to do as instructed. All of a sudden, Ji Yi, who stood quietly next to He Jichen for a long time, finally spoke, “You don’t have to do all this for me...”
Ji Yi’s words had He Jichen confused. He held back a nod and turned his head slightly towards her.
Ji Yi quietly gulped as she gathered the courage to say these next few words, “...I know the only reason you’re treating me like this is because of what happened back at the hot spring resort. You’re apologizing on Lin Ya’s behalf for what she did to me.”
The corners of He Jichen’s lips pursed tightly. His fingers trembled and gradually started to tense up as he held the cup of water.
“Don’t worry. I won’t do anything to her. What’s more, I’ll pretend as though you never saved me last night.” Ji Yi paused for a moment. Then, she swiftly pulled out her purse, unzipped it and pulled all her cash out in front of him. “This money here should be enough to pay for the medical bills from last night.”
