301 Ge Ge, we are really fated.
"Of course, it is as such."
Liu Yue was elated when Pei Ge finally showed a reaction.
The latter had not revealed any sort of emotion since she walked into the coffee shop.
No matter what spiteful words she said, Pei Ge remained calm, and it made her feel as if she were a jumping clown.
"Why would I lie to you? Your cousin wanted to deal with you, and I was merely convinced by her into lending a helping hand." Liu Yue excitedly stretched out her neck to look at Pei Ge in hopes of seeing the hurt that was surely on the latter's face by now.
After a while, Pei Ge finally lifted her head.
Her face was unexpectedly devoid of hurt or anger. Instead, it held indifference.
"Don't tell me you don't believe my words?" she asked. She firmly bit her lower lip as her eyes flashed with disappointment at Pei Ge's lackadaisical expression.
"Of course," her lips curled, and, amid Liu Yue's anticipation, she coldly said, "I don't believe you."
"You actually don't believe me?!" Liu Yue exclaimed in disbelief.
Her agitated exclamation attracted the attention of the shop's other patrons.
"Indeed, you are quite dumb." Recovering herself, Liu Yue lowered her voice and mockingly said this to Pei Ge.
Pei Ge laughed the moment she heard her say that.
"Liu Yue, you think you are smart? If you are, then how did you end up like this today? Are you under the impression that I'm gullible enough to believe a liar like you again?" Once she was done asking this, the smile on her face vanished and in its place was a steely look.
"What do you mean? What lies have I spoken?" Liu Yue nervously moistened her lips.
"You said that my cousin had sought you first. He he! Do you really think that's possible? You were invisible in middle school; how could my cousin remember a small fry like you and take the initiative to find you?" She placed the cup in her hand down and gave the other a mocking look.
Liu Yue paled at her words.
Yes, she had lied. It was her who had looked for Pei Shishi first.
She could tell that there was a slight friction between the two cousins that one time she and Pei Ge bumped into Pei Shishi and Zhou Zhuoyang at the Chanel store.
Taking her chance, she went to find Pei Shishi and learned that… the latter also passionately hated Pei Ge.
Pei Ge knew that she had guessed correctly from Liu Yue's expression.
"Miss Liu, I've asked all my questions, so I'll take my leave now." Pei Ge stood up and smiled at her.
Whatever she needed to ask, she finished asking, and whatever she wanted to know, she actually already knew.
She no longer had to waste her time accompanying such a person.
Liu Yue stared dazedly at Pei Ge once the latter declared her intention to leave.
She had neither asked her anything else nor shared any information with her. She wanted to leave just like that?
"Oh, and don't worry; I will pay for this table of food." Pei Ge smiled lightly and then turned to leave.
"Pei Ge!" Liu Yue yelled when she saw her head for the exit.
Pei Ge stopped walking and turned to indifferently look at her. "What's the matter? Do you have something to say, Miss Liu?"
"Don't you want to know why I am against you?!" Liu Yue demanded.
Pei Ge looked at her curiously, clearly not expecting for her to ask such a question.
"I don't want to know, and there is no need to know." Her lips curled slightly. "You are just a stranger whom I won't ever see again. Why do I need to know things that are of no concern to me?"
Her words were like a sharp sword, and they deeply pierced Liu Yue's heart, causing the blood on her face to drain.
"'Things that are of no concern'…" Liu Yue lightly muttered and then dismissed it. "Ha ha ha! You are always like that! Acting high and mighty, you really haven't changed at all!"
"…" Pei Ge frowned at her words, completely unaware of what she was talking about.
"Back in middle school, everyone, including me, thought that you are kind. Why didn't you stop them from bullying me if you are really kind?! Why did you make me believe that I am beautiful?!" Liu Yue's eyes were red as she yelled these words.
'Who says that we all have to be the same? My father said that personality decides everything. Liu Yue, you must be bolder next time.'
'B - But I feel that we are too different; you are very beautiful pretty, while I… am very ugly.'
'You're ugly? I don't think so! You're actually very cute!'
'Yes! Your face is as round as a big apple and your eyes are expressive! Very cute!'
"Pei Ge, you did that on purpose! You convinced me to retaliate and lied about my appearance; in fact, you just wanted to see me embarrass myself!" Liu Yue spoke in a voice dripping with so much loathing.
Pei Ge was amused by the whole situation.
She really did not expect that her goodwill would be seen in such a bad light by the other party.
I wanted to embarrass her? I did it on purpose? He he! This is truly a case of a dog biting Lu Dongbin and not knowing its fortune…
Pak, pak, pak, pak! A resounding clap echoed about as Pei Ge was looking speechlessly at Liu Yue.
"I've finally seen what the paranoia of a victim looks like today." A cold yet magnetic male voice rang out.
Pei Ge looked curiously over her shoulder at this familiar-sounding voice. In that moment, she was stunned at the sight of the man walking toward her.
"What are you doing here?" She was surprised because the approaching person was not just anyone but her currently confirmed… fake boyfriend, Wen Qimo.
"Ge Ge, what a coincidence to meet you here; we really are fated." The corners of Wen Qimo's mouth curled into a warm smile.
"It is indeed coincidental." Her mouth twitched at this wry event. She really did not expect to encounter Wen Qimo here and did not think he would witness such a ridiculous scene.
However… Why was this man here?
