218 You are still young, so you think of purer thoughts.
Seeing that Ji Ziming did not mind the breakfast's appearance, Pei Ge spiritedly served it from the food container.
The breakfast in the container already looked horrible from all the rolling on the floor that it had suffered, yet it looked even worse after she had transferred it to the bowls.
"CEO Ji, you go ahead and eat first; I'll go out for a while," she informed him upon placing the noodles and side dishes on the square table.
Ji Ziming, who was sitting in the chair, lifted his eyes to glance at Pei Ge, who was standing beside him, and asked coldly, "What for?"
"Knowing Qitong, she is probably still outside." At the mention of Qin Qitong, a streak of shyness flashed through her eyes.
She really did not know whether she should feel thankful for Qin Qitong's timely arrival or not.
It was really awkward to be seen in such an embarrassing position by others, after all.
"You don't have to care about her." He frowned.
Hearing his cousin's name caused him to fume.
That lass was not to be trusted!
"I think I'd better go and check on her still…" Saying this, she proceeded to leave the room.
He gravely watched her leave and gave his cousin a strike in his heart.
Poor Qin Qitong, who was currently ecstatically pressing her ear on the door to the ward with a gossiping look on her face, did not know that she had unlucky earned her cousin's ire.
Who was her cousin? The man was someone who had always maintained his distance from women! Never mind that he managed to explain himself away from the pregnancy test the other day, today was definitely not something he could simply explain away!
Mhm! She knew it. Her cousin and Sister Pei Ge truly had a relationship! This relationship… He he! It was the special kind of relationship between a man and a woman.
Hei hei! I like Sister Pei Ge. If she becomes my sister-in-law, I'll be more than happy!
Pak! The door suddenly opened, and Qin Qitong, whose head was leaning on the door to eavesdrop, fell straight into the room.
"Ah!" she cried out in shock.
Pei Ge eyed the young lady who had fallen into her embrace and laughed while shaking her head. "Didn't you say you are leaving? Why are you still here spying on your cousin?"
"Hei, hei, hei!" Qin Qitong smiled widely as she hugged Pei Ge. "Sister Pei Ge, it's so comfortable to be hugged by you! You're so soft and sweet-smelling! I finally know why my cousin likes you!"
She felt embarrassed upon hearing her words and shot the latter a look. "You lass! What blind nonsense are you spouting?!"
"Hei hei, uhm, I'm blindly speaking - blindly speaking the truth!" She grinned from ear to ear as she gave this reply.
"Go, go, go!" Pei Ge pushed her away from her body and pretended to be mad. "If you spout more nonsense, I shall not bother with you again."
"No, no, no! Sister Pei Ge, I won't say it anymore!" Qin Qitong blinked and said this innocently.
Pei Ge was really helpless with Qin Qitong. "Have you had breakfast yet?"
"Yes! I had breakfast before coming here. I thought of bringing my cousin a portion as well, but when I opened the door, I unexpectedly saw…" Qin Qintong trailed off as she batted her eyelids in a suggestive way at her.
Pei Ge was long overwhelmed by this silly girl's teasing, yet she did not reveal this on her face and merely rolled her eyes at Qin Qitong.
"Saw what? Wasn't it just me falling on to CEO Ji? Your head is always filled with impure thoughts. You are still young, so you think of purer thoughts," she chided with a serious face.
Hearing her reproachful words and serious face, Qin Qitong was really frightened.
However, she quickly regained her composure and pouted. "Sister Pei Ge, you are mistaken. How is it that my thoughts are impure? You two were clearly—"
Before she could finish her words, Pei Ge interrupted her. "Didn't you say you brought CEO Ji breakfast? Follow me in."
Hmph, hmph, hmph! See if you dare say such words before that cold-faced Ji Ziming!
Qin Qitong immediately clamped up at that. She was well aware of her cousin's volatile temper, after all.
Still, her cousin clearly wanted to kiss Pei Ge earlier!
Having thwarted her cousin's plan unintentionally, going in now would be akin to committing suicide.
"No, no! No need, Sister Pei Ge! You can deliver breakfast to him on my behalf! I'll go off first! I still need to go to work!" Qin Qitong tried to pass the food container to Pei Ge after she had said this.
However, Pei Ge merely grinned and pulled Qin Qitong into the room.
"Yi, yi, yi! Sister Pei Ge, I really need to go to work…" She was just happily teasing Pei Ge moments ago, but her heart was now full of dry tears.
Aiya, my mouth! Also, Sister Pei Ge, why do you have so much strength?!
"Work?" Ji Ziming, who was eating breakfast, saw his cousin being dragged inside by Pei Ge and shot her a cold look.
"Hei hei…" Feeling his frosty gaze on her, Qin Qitong shivered as she laughed dryly. "I really need to go to work…."
"Really?" He put down his chopsticks and elegantly wiped his mouth with a napkin.
"What time is it now?" He stared intently at Qin Qitong with his bottomless eyes.
Qin Qitong looked like a child who had made a mistake the way she lowered her head and fiddled with the hem of her clothes. She replied, "8 A.M."
"And what time are you supposed to report for work?" he coldly asked.
Witnessing such a strict scene, Pei Ge regretted pulling Qin Qitong into the room. She initially thought that since Qin Qitong was his cousin, he would treat her more kindly, yet who knew that he was also merciless even to his relatives?
"Cou - Cousin, I am in the wrong…" She was frightened by his sharp gaze and immediately admitted her mistake.
"CEO Ji, Qitong was not late on purpose and just wanted to visit you. She even brought breakfast for you."
Hearing Pei Ge speak for her, Qin Qitong was immediately filled with gratitude.
Wu, wu, wu! Sister Pei Ge is still the best! My cousin is a bad person! Hmph! Next time, I won't speak good things about this bad person in front of Sister Pei Ge!
