May i ask the prounciation for aici?

Yes, you may. Would you prefer a description in the International Phonetic Alphabet, or would you prefer a description in terms of approximations to English pronunciations?

It can vary by dialect, so “ache ye” or “ecka” (approximately) can both be heard.

Roughly [ăɪkʲɪ] ?

I’d put it more on a continuum between /ˈe.kʲɛ/, /ˈɛ.kə/, and /ˈɛ.kɪ/.

Does "she has a boyfriend" make sense here
