Ji Yi's expression didn't change as she turned to look at He Jichen. She used a little strength to pull her wrist from his clutches, then she turned around and stormed out.

Her calm and composed demeanor didn't make the rage in He Jichen's chest subside; rather, it intensified. He shut his eyes and took a deep breath in hopes of lowering the fury in his chest. However, when he opened his eyes, he saw the outline of her body on the bed. His heart felt incredibly stifled as he turned to watch Ji Yi's back as she disappeared. He suddenly lost control of his temper and roared in Zhang Sao's face, "What are you doing still standing there? Quickly take everything she touched in the room and throw it out! So freaking—"

Before he could finish his final word "dirty", He Jichen clearly saw a silhouette sway from his periphery. He suddenly shut his mouth.

Zhang Sao was so shocked that she didn't dare reply with a "Yeah." She hurriedly ran over to the bedside and started to tear off the bedsheets and duvet.

He Jichen stood in the bedroom with a cold expression on his face. It wasn't until he heard the sound of the living room door being slammed shut that he swiftly turned around and walked out. He entered the study next door, still in a fit of rage, as he slammed the door shut with a deafeningly loud bang.

He Jichen sat at his desk then turned the laptop on. He stared at the screen for no more than two minutes before angrily slamming it shut again.

He shut his eyes and silently leaned back in his chair for a while, expressionless. Suddenly he sat up, grabbed his phone and searched through his WeChat. His fingers hovered over Tang Huahua's name. He hesitated for a moment but eventually tapped her name and sent her a message.

Ji Yi wandered around He Jichen's residential area for a good while before she found the exit.

On her way out, she walked up the side of the road and tried to hail a taxi. She suddenly heard someone cry, "Xiao Yi?"

Ji Yi turned towards the source of the sound and saw Tang Huahua on the other side of the road.

...

After the intense pain in her stomach, Ji Yi was fine today, but she didn't dare let her guard down. She had a short chat with Tang Huahua then decided to take a trip to a nearby hospital.

Coincidentally, Tang Huahua wasn't busy, so when she heard that Ji Yi was on her way to the hospital, she enthusiastically offered to go with her.

It was already four in the afternoon when they left the hospital.

Perhaps because she wasn't feeling well, Ji Yi took the medicine and went to sleep after returning to the dorm.

The skies were dark when she woke up. They didn't know where Bo He was—only Tang Huahua was in. She was nestled snugly in bed with her earphones in, and every now and then, she let out a giggle. Ji Yi didn't even need to look; she was certain Tang Huahua was playing games.

Tang Huahua only realized Ji Yi was awake when she got out of bed and headed for the bathroom. She took out her left earphone and said to Ji Yi, "Xiao Yi, you're awake?"

"Mm," responded Ji Yi.

Tang Huahua nodded in the direction of Ji Yi's table. "Xiao Yi, I saw you were asleep, so I didn't wake you up. I figured that the canteen would be closed when you woke up, so I brought some food back for you."

That was when Ji Yi saw two thermal containers on her desk. She thanked Tang Huahua before going into the bathroom.
