500 The CEO Who Shows up like a Phantom to Save a Beauty
Following a dreamless night, she woke up early the next day and took her leave after having breakfast. Once she was downstairs, she quickly spotted her new chauffeur.
"Good morning, Miss Pei!" The boy greeted her spiritedly as he opened the car door for her.
She smilingly nodded at him in return before she hopped into the car.
"Li Qi, you should stop calling me Miss Pei. It sounds weird." She sat comfortably in the back seat. "You can just call my name."
"That's no good. How about I call you Sister Pei Ge?" He gave her a smile.
Unlike other women, she did not feel aversion to that form of address, so she easily nodded in acquiescence at him.
"Sister Pei Ge, last night, Brother Du said that I don't need to fetch you, so I didn't go." Li Qi explained why he had not shown up last night.
Unbothered by it, she said with a smile, "In fact, I find Bauhinia Court's traffic not to be pretty hectic. You actually don't need to come and fetch me all the time."
"No matter how unhectic it is, having a car send you to and from places is still better. Don't make this chauffeur here lose his job," Li Qi joked.
"Pfft! All right. I won't make you lose your job." She broke out in laughter.
It was worth mentioning that she had never felt this relaxed in Du Wen's car before.
As they exchanged banters and jokes, the two quickly became close.
The two of them were still happily chatting when her phone rang.
"Let me take this call." She told the man this with a smile.
"Okay." He nodded.
Fishing out her phone from her bag, she hesitated when saw the flashing name on screen.
In any case, she could not ignore this call, so with a deep breath, she accepted the call.
"Hello, Ziming…" she said softly.
In truth, after she recognized her feelings for the man, she felt more awkward to interact with him.
"Mhm. How are you feeling today?" he asked in his low voice.
His question stunned her for a moment.
Is this annoying fellow really still thinking whether I'm sick or not?
"I already said it before; I am really not sick. I merely wore too many clothes yesterday, so I felt hot to the touch," she complained. Sweetness spread in her heart unknowingly.
What she did not know was that her current behavior was akin to a woman acting cutesy toward her boyfriend.
The chauffeur saw her bliss through the rearview mirror and smiled as a result.
Sister Pei Ge and Mr. Ji are really a couple, huh. She's really in a relationship with the boss!
"… Okay. It's getting colder recently, so you should wear warmer clothes." The man continued after a while.
"All right. I get it. You should wear warmer clothes, too." The smile on her face turned sweeter, and she gave off a blissful aura.
"I will come to Bauhinia Court this afternoon."
"Don't forget not to touch water with your injured hand."
The two chatted in this way, which was how couples talked.
"CEO Ji, it's time…"
She heard Du Wen's voice come from the phone. This was when she realized that the man was at work!
"Ziming, are you in the office right now?"
"Mhm," he hummed in confirmation. "I'm about to go to a meeting."
"I see. You should go on, then! I'll just see you in the afternoon," she said with a smile.
"… Yes. See you later." He paused for a bit before he gave this reply.
She did not know why, but the man sounded happy.
Even after the call ended, the sweet smile lingered on her face.
"Sister Pei Ge, is that your boyfriend?" The chauffeur posed this obvious question.
Clarity returned to her at the chauffeur's question.
Is he considered that? I don't think so.
Her mind instantly cleared up.
"Drive the car. You'll get it from me if I'm late." She skipped over the topic.
"Yes, yes, yes. This one here will drive the car properly and won't cause Sister Pei Ge to be late!"
She watched the scenery outside continuously changed as she absentmindedly thought of her relationship with the man. Soon, she was before Bauhinia Court.
She nervously entered the room for her morning lesson… only to come out later with a look of utter disbelief on her face.
By the time her last mentor left, she had become so shocked it almost seemed as if she would not recover from it. In fact, a long time passed first before she could eke out a bit of clarity.
"This doesn't make any sense…" She tried to blink her confusion away.
This made no sense at all! Those high and mighty teachers suddenly had a one-eighty change in attitude toward her today!
Not only were they all affectionate, they also treated her very nicely and respectfully!
This was just like a dream, and she found it inconceivable!
"Could it be because of him…" She suddenly recalled her conversation with the man about her teachers prior to this day.
Was that annoying fellow responsible for this? Did he say something to those proud and mighty teachers, which caused them to change their attitude toward me?
She was still thinking about this issue when the voice of the man in her heart and mind sounded.
"Ah!" She jolted backward in shock as she reflexively looked up. Standing in front of her was the man.
At the same time, she forgot that she was in the room for her etiquette lesson.
Since she had to practice her sitting posture here, the seats in this room had no backrests. Thus, when she jumped backward in her shock, there was nothing to support her weight, and her body continued to topple backward as a result.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
"Careful!" The man, who was keeping tabs of her every move, quickly shouted this warning before he sprinted toward her with his hands outstretched to rescue her from falling…
