475 A particular CEO who reaches out his devil“s claws to Pei Ge.
Du, du, du…
She was stunned speechless when the disconnected tone rang about. Only after she had lifted the phone away from her ears did she discover that her best friend had hung up on her!
"Tang Xiaoyu, you rascal!"
Right at this moment, she had the urge to throw her phone out of the window.
"Wipe your face."
She was about to lose her cool over this when a well-defined hand appeared before her eyes.
This well-defined hand was offering a clean tissue to her.
She looked at the man in shock and then hastily thanked him.
"No problem." His gaze seemed to say that he did not mind her crying.
Accepting the tissue from him, she realized then that he had parked the car at the side of the road.
She held the tissue and waited for herself to calm down before she used it to wipe the tears off her face. She even blew her nose into it loudly.
The sound of her clearing her nose broke the silence in the car completely.
However, this gross noise, coupled with her unladylike action, did not annoy the elegant man, who had a slight case of obsessive compulsiveness. Instead, it made him just feel helpless about her.
She felt much calmer after clearing her nose.
Sensing that she had calmed down, he asked gently, "Feeling better?"
"Mhm." She nodded lightly as she held the tissue. Feeling such overwhelming emotions, all she wanted to do now was to open up to someone – even if that someone was this unfriendly CEO.
"Don't you think that she's too much? She became unreachable the moment she reached the U.S. She did not call, much less sent a message, to let me how she's doing in these three weeks. Do you know how worried I was? There were times I couldn't sleep because, the moment I closed my eyes, I was plagued by worry about her wellbeing…"
The man patiently listened to her ranting without a hint of annoyance.
How could he not have known that this dumb woman was unable to reach her friend when he had been observing her all that while?
Nonetheless, he was unaware that Tang Xiaoyu's disappearance had made her this uneasy.
For some reason, he felt a rush of complex emotions as he looked at this ranting woman.
He could not explain it but his heart ached for her. Still, somehow, there seemed to be another sort of feeling…
Of course, the relatively low-EQ CEO did not know that this other feeling was… jealousy.
Yes, this petty CEO once more jealous of the dumb woman's best friend.
He was unaware of it, unfortunately.
"Say; you also think she's too much, right?" She punctuated this question with another noisy blowing of her nose into the tissue.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
"Mhm. Too much." His voice was faint and did not carry any emotions, yet he readily gave her this reply.
She was totally not expecting to receive a reply from him, though.
As such, she blinked at him in amazement. Even the anger she felt for her best friend faded for a little.
Seeing her blink at him with her moist eyes, his hands suddenly tingled.
"Cough! Really too much." He tried to cover this up by lightly coughing and repeating his words.
"Pfft!" His out-of-character response made her laugh. She was really pleased with his present attitude.
Seeing her all smiles again, the corners of his mouth lifted. He proceeded to pass another tissue to her.
"Thank you," she expressed, receiving the tissue from him yet again.
"Did I scare you earlier?" She pursed her glossy lips and lifted her eyes to him.
She just had an emotional break down moments before; it must have seemed unsightly to him.
"No." He shook his head plainly and regarded her with gentle eyes.
Right now, he was treating her without any of his earlier anger.
As for her, when she heard his reply, her mood considerably improved.
"You're not angry anymore?" he asked in his cold voice; his hands gripped the steering wheel tightly.
Her mouth twitched, and she shook her head, a look of determination flashing on her face. "No. I'm still angry."
The man was clearly taken aback by her reply as his face expressed surprise.
Wasn't this stupid woman smiling earlier? Her face didn't show anger, too.
"I won't forgive that despicable Xiaoyu easily!" With that said, she switched off her phone.
"Hmph! From here on, I will make her get a taste of her medicine and experience what it's like for her friend to be unreachable!" With a harrumph, she lifted her chin slightly.
This display of hers only made the man feel that she was absolutely adorable.
It was to the extent that he really wanted to pat her head.
"I want her to have a hard time contacting me. I…" Mid-speech, she felt a hand gently patting her head!
Huh, huh, huh, huh?! What?! A hand is patting my head?!
She speechlessly looked up at the hand patting her head.
"… J-Ji Ziming?! What are you doing?!" Her eyes widened in shock, and she cast a stunned look in his direction.
Yes! Ji Ziming, who had failed to resist the urge this time, reached out his devil's claws to pat the head he had been wanting to touch.
"…" As if he could not hear her, he did not reply to her question and just continued to pat her head without any expression on his face. In the end, he made a mess of her hair.
She shifted uncomfortably at his expressionless action.
What craziness is this annoying fellow up to this time?!
"You! You are still touching! Ji Ziming, stop right now!"
