392 Let“s go get our marriage certificate at the Civil Affairs Bureau!

"Let's go to the Civil Affairs Bureau."

His words stunned her, and her porcelain face gawked at him.

"Huh? What for?" She felt dizzy just thinking of it.

Go to the Civil Affairs Bureau… What for? Don't tell me… Is it what I think it is?!

Thump, thump, thump! She must be overthinking this.

Just as this thought flashed through her mind, his next words struck her absolutely silly.

"To get our marriage certificate, of course!" he replied calmly. His lips curled into a faint smile as he observed the way she stared at him with eyes as round as large grapes.

She was so taken aback by his words she could not recover in time. Being stunned for a good while, she finally managed to spout, "… Huh?! M-Marriage?!" He's joking right?!

She looked at him in fright. Has this annoying person lost his mind? What is he doing?!

Seeing her look of fright, which was devoid of any happiness, his forehead scrunched up as his eyes glinted with displeasure.

Was his desire to marry this d*mn foolish woman so frightening a prospect to her?! Was he that annoying in her eyes?!

"CEO Ji, did you make a mistake somewhere?! W-Why…" She finally mustered the courage to speak her mind. "Why do we need to get married at the Civil Affairs Bureau? Are you alright?"

Coldly snorting at her question, he succinctly replied, "I'm very fine. I think you're the one who has problems."

"Ah?" She looked at him in confusion, not catching what he meant.

"We have a contract." His fingers tapped the contract on his desk lightly.

She nodded. "Yes, we have a contract, but that's just a counterfeit marriage."

Could it be that they were not faking it? What was the use of the contract, then?

"Heh…" He chuckled mirthlessly and arched a brow. His voice had a hint of challenge when he asked, "Who told you that this is going to be a counterfeit marriage?"

Ah? His words turned her silly.

'Who told you that this is going to be a counterfeit marriage?'

This question went on a loop in her head, making her feel dizzy.

Not a fake marriage? How can that be?! The contract clearly stated…

Thinking up to this point, she quickly snatched the contract from the table and anxiously read over it.

When she went through it earlier, she did not pay much attention to details, as she simply assumed that she was going to be a shield again – except that she got promoted from a pretend girlfriend to a fake wife this time.

However…

She carefully reread every part of the contract.

Only now did she realize that the contract never once mentioned anything about this being a counterfeit marriage.

An ominous feeling rose from her heart after rereading the contract.

"Are you done reading over the contract?" he asked at the sight of her standing rooted to the spot while staring at the contract in her hands.


"If you're done reading over it, then let's go."

At that, she suddenly screamed, "Wait!"

"Mhm?" He turned his frosty gaze on to her.

"While this contract doesn't state that this is a fake marriage, it doesn't say that I must marry you for real, either!" she seriously reasoned.

Seeing how serious and determined she was, the displeasure in his heart intensified.

Was it really that difficult for this d*mn woman to accept that he wanted to marry her? In what way was he so terrible that she refused to marry him?!

"Do you not want to marry me that much?" he asked in a voice filled with dissatisfaction while looking at her through narrowed eyes.

She was surprised by his question and eventually shook her head slowly as she held his gaze.

"I… I just think that marriage is a sacred thing. Only two people in love should get married…" Just like my parents… she mumbled to herself.

The anger in his heart instantly ebbed away at her words.

"Two people in love, huh?" he repeated with a slight frown. His eyes locked on to hers and his heart contorted with a strange feeling.

In that moment, he thought that perhaps it was not a bad thing for him to marry her.

"Mhm. CEO Ji, don't play around with a serious matter like this…" She nodded with a smile.

Although her heart truly beat for him and she leaped with joy when the annoying person said that he wanted to marry her, she knew deep down that this man was not in love with her and that all of this was fake.

No matter how much she loved him, she did not want to have a fake 'marriage' with him.

"Play?" He collected his thoughts and coldly glanced at her. "You think I'm playing?"

"Er…" For some reason, the way he looked at her made her feel guilty.

"Read the eighth passage on the last page," he ordered in a voice teeming with displeasure.

An ominous feeling rose in her heart at his words.

She gulped nervously, picked up the contract once more, and quickly flipped to the last page.

She patiently counted the clauses and then seriously read the eighth passage.

She was stunned speechless for a moment after she was done reading it.

"Th-This… This…" she stammered as her eyes went back and forth between the contract and the man in disbelief.

The clause actually—
