342 This woman can only be his!
The alley was already cramped, and with her being pinned against the wall by the man, it made it difficult for her to breathe.
"If CEO Ji has something to say, then let's find somewhere else to talk," she suggested softly as she lifted her head to look at him.
However, when her eyes met his ablaze ones, she reflexively averted her gaze by lowering her head.
"Pei Ge, what do you think I want to talk to you about?" he asked coolly.
"… I don't know," she pursed her lips and mumbled with hesitation.
His palm stretched out and pinched her chin, forcing her to look up.
"Lift your head and look at me."
She looked up reluctantly.
"Can't you tell?" he asked coldly as he gazed at her intensely.
"What?" She stared at him in confusion, her heart feeling panicky. She had no idea what this annoying fellow was up to again.
"I'm angry; I'm very angry right now," he growled as his eyes bore more deeply into hers.
His voice had anger in it, which made her feel scared.
"…" She bit her lower lip and kept silent.
His mouth twitched at her silence. With a frosty voice, he continued to ask, "Who let you go on a date? Haven't you learned your lesson before? Are you that desperate for a man?"
His cold gaze and blunt words immediately roused the anger of the initially frightened Pei Ge.
Pak! She swatted his hand away from her chin with her palm.
"Why? You, as a boss, want to manage a subordinate's date, too?"
"Pei Ge, don't provoke me!" He grimaced, his eyes blazing dangerously.
"CEO Ji, you are indeed my boss, but besides that, we have no relation." She lifted her chin and stared straight at him.
"No relation?" Stunned by her words, he let out a mirthless laugh. "Very well, very well."
He was so angry that he was laughing, and his eyes revealed this intense anger.
"Of course, you, CEO Ji, have told me this yourself. You told me not to be overly attached." Her heart trembled at his tangible fury.
She did not want to admit it, but… this man was really charming… and that made her unknowingly…
"CEO Ji, my boyfriend is still waiting for me, so please step aside and let me pass," she said lightly; her lowered eyelids concealed her emotion.
"Pei Ge, do you really want to make me angry?!" His eyes narrowed dangerously.
"I wouldn't dare," she muttered with her head still hanging low.
She only wanted to keep her distance from him. Even if she could not control her heart, she could at least control her body.
"Pei Ge…" He felt pained by her reluctance to look at him.
This woman could always easily get under his skin. He was often getting angry with her, yet he was always helpless to do anything about it.
"CEO Ji, your girlfriend is still waiting for you." She smiled and finally looked up at him.
"She's not my girlfriend!" Ji Ziming quickly clarified, as though afraid of her misunderstanding him.
She looked at him curiously, moistened her lips, and then continued with a smile, "Alright, your date, then."
"It's not a date; we're just having a meal." Realizing his abnormal behavior himself, he gave this reason.
Her mouth twitched at his words, and she lightly snorted. "I'm just having a meal, too."
How could it not be a date? Qin Qitong clearly said that he was going on a blind date!
"Pei Ge!" He lowered his head to lock gazes with her as his anger returned.
This damn woman always liked to fight him.
She saw the way he looked at her in anger, and her heart strangely did not feel fear. Instead, she found him rather adorable.
Pa, da, pa, da! The familiar sound of approaching high heels broke the atmosphere that was just starting to relax.
These footsteps were full of anger.
"Ji Ziming, I want to go home."
Ji Lelin's furious voice traveled to their ears.
The rather harmonious atmosphere dissipated upon her arrival.
Blocked by his body, she could not see Ji Lelin's face but could hear the intense anger in her voice.
"You go home yourself," he said curtly.
Her fists clenched tightly at his curt reply, and she said coldly, "Auntie Ji and Uncle Ji are still waiting for us at home."
Pei Ge felt slightly embarrassed for the woman.
She was clearly in a difficult spot. Never mind that she was dumped by the gay Wen Qimo, even her current date was treating her like this…
Thinking up to this, she struggled to escape his entrapment.
"CEO Ji, since you have something on, I'll return inside now."
She bowed respectfully to her before running out of the alley.
Only when her figure was gone did he shift his eyes away from her and to Ji Lelin.
"That woman has quite the charm despite her average looks. Not only does she have our company's CEO Wen in her hands, she even has you, the indifferent CEO Ji, hooked. Wow, one really can't be judged by their looks." She laughed with ridicule.
"Shut up." His narrowed eyes were devoid of any emotions.
"Ji Ziming, I know you don't like me, and I don't like you, either. Why don't we work together? I know you like that woman, and I happen to like her boyfriend. Let's work together."
She seemed not to be bothered by his frosty look and merely suggested this in a bewitching tone.
"Hmph." He shot her a cold look and exited the alley in big strides.
When he reached her side, he coldly refused, "I'm not interested."
To have the woman he liked, he did not require methods that could not be seen in the daylight.
Pei Ge would definitely not escape his clutches. She could only be his!
