453 He actually had a nosebleed over a woman.
She blinked skeptically. Quickly walking to the door, she carefully looked at the floor.
Indeed, she spotted a few drops of blood on the floor. Maybe it was because quite some time had passed that, although not fully dry, the blood was slightly brown.
Could it really be… that annoying fellow's blood?
But… Why is he bleeding? Did I injure him when I fell down earlier?Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click for visiting.
"Ge Ge, what are you thinking of?" Lily, who had been nagging at her for a while, finally realized that her mind was elsewhere as she stood looking at the blood stains on the floor by the door.
"Ah. It's nothing important." She shifted her gaze from the blood, yet her mind continued to think of Ji Ziming.
That annoying fellow… should be fine, right? This blood… shouldn't be his, right?
Inside a pristine bathroom, tap water wetted a pair of elegant palms.
The pair of palms moved up to Ji Ziming's flawless face.
Alas, his face seemed to have an anomaly today.
Remnants of blood could be seen on his philtrum.
"…" He looked at his mirror reflection, and at the sight of this red liquid, his face turned murky.
Swaaah! He reached up and washed the blood from his nose.
His expression only brightened up once the blood was no longer there.
"D*mn it!" He switched off the tap. Beads of water dripped down his face that had tightly pursed lips.
He silently gazed at himself in the mirror, and with each passing second, the chagrin on his face grew heavier.
D*mn it! I actually had a nosebleed over that dumb woman!
His face turned as dark as the bottom of a pot the instant he thought about this.
Clang! He slammed his palms on the basin.
He had never suffered such a humiliation before. In fact, he considered this as the most shameful day of his life.
That was because he actually had a nosebleed over a woman! This was just inconceivable!
"Perhaps I'm just feeling stuffy," he mumbled after some time.
Yes! I'm just feeling stuffy, and it's not due to being stimulated by that dumb woman!
Once Pei Ge was done changing clothes, she sat in the studio and chatted with Lily for a while. However, she soon became a little restless when Ji Ziming was still not back.
What's keeping that annoying fellow from returning?
"Ge Ge, why are you looking around?" The stylist started teasing her when her eyes strayed on the door for the umpteenth time. "Are you waiting for CEO Ji?"
"N-No! I'm not waiting for him," she reflexively denied.
Lily nodded and, with a smile in his eyes, continued, "Really? Your actions belie your words, though. You seem to be waiting for him…"
She moved to deny this just as one of the stylist's assistants walked in with some drinks for them.
"Sister Lily, CEO Ji left long ago."
Not only her but also the stylist froze when this was said.
"He left?" He looked at his assistant in disbelief.
"Yes. CEO Ji left a while ago. He seems to be unhappy, too, as his face is as black as the bottom of a wok!" The assistant nodded fervently and then expressed his lingering fear.
The stylist perplexedly turned to look at her.
What happened between this awkward couple when I wasn't paying attention?
With her entire focus on Ji Ziming, she of course did not notice the stylist's gaze.
That annoying fellow left? Ji Ziming actually left without saying anything to me?
The stylist shot a pitying look to the woman, whose face had disappointment written all over.
Sigh… Poor little Ge Ge. Dating a man like that is really tiring! What a poor little thing…
"Ge Ge, what happened between you and CEO Ji? Did you offend him somehow?" he carefully asked.
She was shocked awake from her daze by his question.
Offend that man?
I don't even know how I offended him! The victim here is obviously me! I'm the one who was seen naked and got groped, so I should be the one getting angry!
Instead, that annoying fellow is throwing a tantrum? He is really sick! A lunatic!
"What is there to offend him about? He is always like this – more temperamental than a woman on her period; I can't be bothered with him anymore!" the angry her exclaimed.
"Pfft!" The stylist could not stifle his laughter at her indignant look. Even the assistant standing beside him smiled in amusement.
"Ha ha ha! Ge Ge, you are too adorable! This is the first time I heard someone say that about CEO Ji. You are truly very adorable." He had a long hearty laugh as though she had just told him a very funny joke.
"…" She rolled her eyes exasperatedly at the stylist and then mumbled, "Take your time laughing; I'll go home now!"
With that, she got up from the sofa.
"Ha ha ha! Be careful on your way back; keep me updated through phone."
"Mhm-kay. See you."
After bidding Lily goodbye, she left the salon.
Outside, she stood under the night sky and stared at where his car was parked before. Her mood instantly plummeted.
However, as luck would have it, a taxi happened to stop before her the moment she came out.
She quickly got into this cab once the previous passenger alit from it.
"Sir, go to…"
The taxi drove off quickly.
What she did not know was that, immediately after the taxi departed, a familiar-looking car to her stopped right outside the salon…
