77 Woman, stop it.
"Ji Ziming! You stupid bastard who only knows how to play but not to take responsibility!"
Pei Ge stretched her palm out and, just like that first time they had met, yanked him by his tie downward while he was not paying attention.
"Damn it! What are you doing?!" Ji Ziming, who was forced to bend his waist, narrowed his cold eyes dangerously.
However, the moment he lowered his head, his eyes were instantly filled with astonishment and elation, and the coldness in them vanished without a trace.
"What am I doing?! Of course, I'm punishing a jerk like you who can't control his lower half!" After saying this, she struck out with her signature move of sweeping her knee toward his crotch area.
However, Ji Ziming, who had suffered under Pei Ge's abuse many times, easily thwarted her attempt this time.
His arms lightly circled around Pei Ge to lock her in place as he easily pushed her sweeping knee away.
I've finally caught this little kitten that has been eluding me all this while.
With her in his embrace, Ji Ziming's eyes brimmed with gentleness. It was as though everything in the world was right as long as she remained in his embrace.
He himself did not realize this, though.
"You can try another new move next time." He bent down and lightly laughed, his lips right beside her ear.
Pei Ge wanted to beat Ji Ziming up until he was begging for mercy. However, instead of achieving her goal, she was the one eating a loss by his hands once more. She was even being teased by him. At this, Pei Ge was enraged that her eyes turned red and she started struggling with all her might as she bellowed at him, "You a*shole, let go off me if you have the guts to do so! I will show you my new moves!"
At that, he did not release her. The more she struggled in his embrace, the more he tightened his arms around her.
He embraced her so tightly that it almost seemed as though he intended to embed her into him.
"Woman, stop struggling." Ji Ziming's voice was low as though he were coaxing a disobedient child.
"Stop? Stop, your sister! Let go of me, you bastard!" If looks could kill, he would probably drop dead with her glares for ten thousand times.
Ji Ziming's charming eyebrows furrowed with displeasure at Pei Ge's words.
"I don't like to hear people curse."
"He he! Don't like, your ass! If that's the case, then I'll say it even more!" Pei Ge coldly smirked as she started spewing all the names she had called him inside the whole day, "Pervert! Jerk! Lowlife! Bastard! You only know how to flirt but not to take responsibility..." A series of curses and swear words that she would usually not speak of was spewed by her.
Just as Pei Ge was about to exhaust her vocabulary of swear and curse words, Ji Ziming, who had been staring at her with cold eyes this whole time, suddenly lowered his head; his stoic, handsome face got infinitely magnified in her eyes.
"You! What are you planning to do?!" She looked at him warily.
"If you don't stop your disobedient mouth, I don't mind using a special method to do so." Although he sounded flirtatious, it was hard to see that from his stoic expression and cold tone.
Hearing his words, she angrily glared at him and softly muttered, "I won't say anymore, then!" She had already exhausted every swear word she could think of, anyway.
Ji Ziming felt a little regretful when Pei Ge actually obediently quieted down.
"Hey, Ji Ziming, you let go of me. I promise not to smack you." She indignantly glared at him as she mumbled this.
Ji Ziming raised his eyebrows at that. "Why do you want to smack me?"
"Hmph! Because you're a jerk!" She rolled her eyes and lashed out at him.
"I'm a jerk?" Only then did he remember that she was scolding him for not taking responsibility. He frowned.
It would not be because of that call just then... right?
"Of course! If not you, then who is?! Someone is pregnant with your child, yet you're still this apathetic and unfeeling! Who else is a jerk if not you?! Hmph!" She coldly harrumphed as her tone was filled with disdain.
Ji Ziming's already furrowed brows tightened even more as he coldly asked, "What has that got to do with you?"
"How does it not have any, you a*shole?! I'm also—" Before Pei Ge could finish her words, she suddenly recalled Ji Ziming's cold look when he was talking on the phone moments ago.
'Don't let me see her again...'
No! I can't say it! If I say it out loud, not only will I lose my job, my child - my child will also be aborted by this demon!
"You're also what?" Seeing her stop mid-sentence as though she was hiding something, his gaze turned suspicious.
"Nothing. I just think that you're too much of a jerk!" She tugged at her lips and said this in a petulant manner.
Ji Ziming continued to look at Pei Ge with suspicious eyes as he sensed that she was hiding something from him.
"Bastard! Quickly let go off me! The elevator is reaching the first floor soon!" Pei Ge frantically changed the topic when she saw him look at her with suspicion.
Definitely! I definitely can't let this annoying fellow know that I'm pregnant, too!
At this time, the arms, which were tightly hugging her, relaxed slightly.
The moment he relaxed his arms, she quickly untangled herself from his embrace.
Pervert! Womanizer! The feeling of his embrace suddenly getting empty caused Ji Ziming to frown subconsciously.
Ding! The elevator finally reached the first floor and its doors parted open once more.
The moment they opened, her eyes immediately shone brightly as she prepared to make a run for it.
However, he did not give her the chance to do so.
With his large palm, he grabbed her wrist tightly.
"What are you trying to do again?!" Pei Ge turned her head around angrily and glared at Ji Ziming.
"I still have some things I want to ask you." His smoldering gaze intently focused on her.
"What is there to even ask?! We aren't even that close!" Her voice was filled with disdain as she glared at him rather harshly.
This was his first time seeing someone face him with such an attitude.
He coldly looked at her and said in a chilly voice, "For example, the reason you're here in my company."
Ahhh! I'm so dead! Hot-headedness is indeed the devil! This annoying fellow is actually going to ask for payback now!
Pei Ge! My gosh, Pei Ge! What were you thinking?! Why did you not hide properly but went spewing away with your cheap mouth, instead?!
