521 Let us cohabit starting next week!
"Also! Why did you tell auntie that we are going to live together?! There's clearly nothing about that in the contract!"
She poured all her grievances to the man who was staring at her wrist.
However, as if he did not hear her, the man just continued frowning at her wrist with the red imprint.
"Hey, I'm talking to you!"
She felt her rage boil when he just ignored her.
This annoying fellow is too hateful! Why is he always like this? He decides things on his own and doesn't listen to me!
"Ji Ziming!" She reached her hand out, wanting to tug him, but…
The hand she had extended was grabbed by him again.
"Is it painful?" With an emotionless face, he held her hand gently in his.
"Huh?" She was a little taken aback by his concerned voice. She lowered her head and finally realized that the hand she had used to tug at him was the one with the red imprint.
She subconsciously shook her head upon seeing his serious look. "It's not painful."
He lightly stroked the reddened skin of her hand with his fingers thereafter.
D*mn it. This dumb woman is too fragile. Next time… I should be gentler with her.
Her body involuntarily shivered at his feathery touch.
While his fingers were clearly cold, for some reason, everywhere he touched her seemed to burn.
With this heat from him that was nearly making her blush, she felt her heart accelerate at an alarming rate.
No, no! Calm down! Calm down! Calm down a little, Pei Ge!
She bit on her lower lip and quickly retracted her hand from his grasp.
"Wha-What are you doing?!" Afraid that he would discover her embarrassment, she lowered her head while feeling a little guilty inside.
He felt out of sorts when she shied away from his touch.
"Ji Ziming, let's speak with words and not actions!" Taking a few deep breaths to calm her pounding heart, she looked up at the man again.
"While we still have time, let's say all that needs to be said!"
He frowned at her.
"I remember not reading anything in our contract about us having to cohabit." She looked at him, and when she saw that he was not angry, she continued speaking. "So, I won't come live with you."
He did not reply to her immediately but just continued staring at her calmly.
"Wh-Why are you staring at me like that?" She felt goosebumps rise on her skin from his stare.
A short pause later, he asked, "You hate the idea of living with me?"
Her lips moved ever so slightly as she sighed inwardly, Rather than hate, it's more of me being afraid…
She was afraid that she would like him even more if they lived together. Also, when their contract expired, only she would get hurt…
Hence, it was not 'hate' but 'fear', instead.
"Why don't you want to live with me?" At her silence, he reiterated his question, but his tone this time sounded frosty.
"I…" She raised her head to look at him.
"Our relationship is fake. You're not my real boyfriend, and I'm not your real girlfriend. We can't live together. I still need to marry someone someday." she mumbled under his cold gaze.
He was originally already angry at her explanation, and when she spoke that last part of her statement, his rage reached a boiling point.
"Hur! Pei Ge, you seem to be forgetting that we are already married." He smirked at her darkly.
A little stunned at his words, the picture of them at the Civil Affairs Bureau surfaced in her mind.
Right! I forgot that we are married already!
Sigh… I really sacrificed a lot for him this time! I'm actually a wife now!
"Still… Even if we are married, our relationship is still fake, so I don't want to live with you! This is totally against the rules!" she said firmly, even shaking her head.
He scowled unhappily at her.
Peering at her coldly with his dark eyes, his lips parted open again.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
"Pei Ge, you seem to be forgetting that the contract you signed states that you must obey all my orders."
Does this d*mn, stupid woman despise me that much? She actually doesn't want to live with me to this extent!
He was actually intending to reject his mother's suggestion earlier, but when he spotted her gloating look, he impulsively agreed to it.
When he saw her strive to avoid him, a rebellious streak came over him, and he thought, The more this dumb woman doesn't want to live with me, the more I will insist on us living together.
The last straw was her saying that she did not want to live with him because she would still marry someone someday.
Whenever he thought of her belonging to another man and marrying someone else, his heart would burn with an unexplainable rage.
"Still, our contract doesn't include me having to live with you!" She was piqued by his domineering attitude.
"The contract states that you must listen to my orders, so, starting next Monday, you will be living with me." He spoke with ultimatum as he shot her a cutting glance, clearly not intending to give her any leeway.
