302 I am not as kind as my girlfriend.
Wen Qimo's sudden appearance gave Pei Ge an instant headache, and her urge to leave the place grew stronger.
Seeing the man's good looks and exceptional demeanor, bubbles of jealousy toward Pei Ge boiled further in Liu Yue's heart.
"Pei Ge, I really didn't expect for you to be this capable!" With jealousy in her eyes, she said mockingly, "You already have CEO Ji, yet you've ensnared this man, too.
"You are indeed very formidable. With your current state, you are still able to seduce so many men. How shameless you are."
Her voice was not soft and was rather loud, so everyone nearby heard her clearly, causing a slight hubbub to start in the shop.
"Excuse me, this miss here; Ge Ge is my girlfriend, so please be mindful of your words. My temper is not as good as my girlfriend's. I am the type of person who takes measures through legal means, and your words just now can already be considered as libelous." Although he still had a gentle smile on his face, his words were laced with hostility.
Seeing Liu Yue become so frightened by his threat that she shut her mouth, Pei Ge could not help but laugh.
Inside, she thought, Having a fake boyfriend who looks like a gentle Adonis on the outside but is totally black-hearted on the inside is actually not too bad.
It's even better since I don't need to worry of this fake boyfriend taking advantage of me with him being gay! A guy who likes men and not women!
"Qimo, let's go." Pei Ge walked to his side and smilingly hooked her arm through his.
The moment she touched his arm, she could clearly feel the man's body stiffen.
Of course, she did not suspect anything and only thought that he disliked any form of physical contact with women because he was gay.
They quickly footed the bill and left the coffee house. Once they were out on the street, she quickly released his arm.
"Sorry for touching you just then. I forgot that you dislike physical contact with women. I'll definitely take note of it next time." She put her palms together and sincerely apologized.
Wen Qimo's mouth twitched at her apology. He really wanted to crack open her head right now just to see what was in it exactly!
"There. Is. No. Need. To." He glared daggers at her and said this through gritted teeth.
"Oh." Totally oblivious to the real reason behind his rage, she completely assumed that it was due to him being repulsed by her intimate touch just then.
"Let's go; I'll send you home," he took a deep breath and offered.
Without pretending to hedge, she agreed with a nod and got into his car.
Liu Yue watched the couple intimately walk out of the place, and, for some reason, the indignance she felt inside completely vanished.
Pei Ge… is indeed Pei Ge…
No matter how or what she turns into, whether ugly or pretty, she is always this iridescent, this dazzling, and this attractive. I am totally jealous of her…
Her life goal in the past was to become someone like Pei Ge…
However, once she realized that it was an unachievable goal, a seed of hatred was planted in her heart toward that girl, who was so outstanding that no one could catch up to her.
When she met her again, the latter was no longer that high and mighty, princess-like girl of the past; she had turned into this disappointing, unsightly mess.
In that moment, the seed of evilness and hatred in her heart, which had been planted years ago, sprouted.
Within the coffee shop, in contrast to Liu Yue's pensive and nostalgic thought, another waitress's mind was much more lighthearted and wild.
Aiyo! The hell?! What the hell?! That woman's boyfriend turns out be a different person and not my male god! She must be blind!
Pei Ge got off Wen Qimo's car with a wide smile when they reached her neighborhood.
"Thanks for today," she said with a grateful smile.
"It's nothing; I merely lifted a finger. You are my girlfriend, so I can't just let someone bully you before my presence, right?" he rhetorically asked with a smile.
"And here I thought you were merely enjoying the show and had forgotten about who I am." She raised an eyebrow.
"Hm? You actually knew that I was there all along, huh." He did not defend his act of watching the show from the sidelines earlier and openly admitted to it.
"Was the show interesting?" She rolled her eyes at him. So much for his good looks and gentlemanly aura. This Wen Qimo is a black-sesame rice ball wrapped in white glutinous skin! A black-bellied idiot who is white on the outside but black on the inside!
"Wu, it's not bad. In fact, I am now a little curious about you." He nodded his head with a wide smile.
"What are you curious about?" She pouted.
"I am curious of how pretty you were in the past for someone to still be jealous of you even today." He seriously regarded her and then tut-tutted.
"I am also pretty curious; are you really a homosexual? You are actually curious about a woman," she countered while copying his demeanor.
"…" His mouth twitched. "Alright, you win."
F*ck! I am honestly not gay! It's perfectly normal for me to be curious of women, alright?!
After waving him goodbye, she took light steps toward her house.
The moment she stepped inside, she was barraged by her mother's series of questions.
Zhang Manhua only relaxed once she had finished recounting everything.
"As long as your second uncle knows of the truth, all is good."
"Yes. Mom, you should go to sleep now. Don't think nonsensical things anymore. My second uncle merely drank too much yesterday," she smilingly assured her mother.
"Alright, you rest early, too." With a relieved smile, Zhang Manhua nodded her head in acquiescence.
After chatting for a bit, the mother-daughter pair returned to their respective bedrooms.
Once she was in the privacy of her room, she lay in her bed and finally thought of Pei Shishi's issue.
"Sigh…" She tossed and turned for a little while and eventually audibly sighed.
The two sisters' conversation at the bus stop kept surfacing from her memories.
It was as the elder sister had said; they were sisters, so what was one man worth?
However, she could not fathom why that would change when it came to her cousin. Was it because Ji Ziming was really that important to her or because… she had never had any importance to her cousin to begin with?
Whatever the case might be, a change occurred to her mentality today.
"Cousin, from now onward, I will not hide."
If her cousin really decided to stretch her vile hands toward her, she would not just let it pass like she had done before.
Cousin, three strikes and you are out. Don't disappoint me, or else…
