546 Hubby, I am truly not thinking any nonsense about you!
At this moment, Pei Ge had just finished her lunch. She was still clueless that, in just one afternoon, she had already made a prominent person have zero good impression of her.
After lunch, she put on an apron, kept the utensils on the table, and started washing the dishes.
While she was washing the dishes, she roamed her eyes on the familiar setting around her and felt that she was in a dream. She had truly never expected to be able to live in this house her family had sold in the past again…
A cute meowing pulled her back to reality.
She turned her head and quickly spotted Pudding sitting next to her leg. It raised its furry head to look at her.
"Pfft!" She burst into laughter at how adorable it looked.
"You little buddy must be my Pudding. You are as clingy as my old cat!" She looked amusedly at the cat, which had its furry head tilted upward.
Perhaps… it's another present from my father.
She put the utensils to their proper places, washed and wiped her hands, and bent down to pick up the cat.
"Let's go, Pudding. We shall take a nap!" she said gently while rubbing its head.
'Meow!" The cat nudged her palm with its head and meowed as if it were responding to her.
With a wide smile, she carried it out of the kitchen.
Surprisingly, at the kitchen entrance, she spotted the man.
"Hm? You're still here?" she asked reflexively.
"…" Ji Ziming frowned at that.
Noting his displeasure, she hastily explained, "I thought that you had gone to work already."
It's already so late. This annoying fellow doesn't look like someone who has a lot of free time. That's why I thought for sure that he'd gone to work, she thought to herself.
"You want me to go so badly?" He continued looking at her.
"No—of course not. I was just showing my concern for you." She grinned at him and said this with an earnest look.
The crease in his forehead lightened at her smile.
"I'll be going to work now. Stay at home obediently and don't go running around. I'll be back at night," he stated blandly.
"Oh, okay! I will stay at home properly! Hurry and go to work!" She nodded vigorously and smiled more brightly at him.
For some reason, her bright smile made him feel strange.
Silently staring at her for a while, he finally turned around and made his way out of the house.
Her smile grew wider and brighter as she watched him leave.
Suddenly, the man turned back.
"Why are you smiling so happily?" He narrowed his eyes at her bright smile, which she was unable to retract in time.
She was caught off guard by him. "Huh? Ah, I was just thinking that it's pretty enjoyable to live with you…"
Her reply stunned him a little.
"Are you not happy?" She blinked at him and grinned.
"…" Happy? I guess.
His tightly creased forehead loosened at the thought and his face turned softer.
"Come here." He beckoned her.
Confused, she made her way to him.
"What?" She reached his side while feeling nonplussed.
"Send me out." He peered at her.
"Huh?" His words shocked her.
Send this annoying fellow out? What does he mean?
"You are my girlfriend." He did not even spare her a glance as he gave that succinct reason.
The corner of her lips twitched at that.
So, his meaning is that it's my duty to send him off when he's leaving as I am his girlfriend, right?
She felt exasperated inside.
Did this annoying fellow watch too many Japanese dramas?! If not, why would he say these things?!
Also! The people in those Japanese dramas are married couples!
When the husband returns home, the wife helps him take off his jacket and change his slippers. When he leaves, she helps him tie his necktie and stands at the door to send him off…
Ugh… That seems about right. We also got our marriage certificate.
When the woman did not speak after he had said that, he turned around, only to see her spacing out again.
"Pei Ge," he called with a frown.
What is this dumb woman thinking again?!
"Ah, hubby…" she reflexively called out in response to his call.
"!" He widened his eyes at her.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
"Ah!" She belatedly realized what she had just called the man before her. "I-I-I… It was a mistake! A mistake! Don't misunderstand! I wasn't thinking any nonsense," she explained in a fluster. However, her explanation was akin to a clumsy denial and only resulted in her getting exposed more.
"Cough, cough!" He lightly coughed at her explanation and turned around with a blank look. "Okay, let's go."
"Oh." Noting his calm reaction, she also calmed down.
Pei Ge, can you please buck up! What kind of nonsense are you thinking of?! It's all fake. Ignore those images. Just go along with how this annoying fellow wants to act. You need to stay calm! Stay calm!
Look! This annoying fellow is so calm!
She was thinking that she needed to stay calm like the man, but what she did not know was that a certain CEO's heart was not much better than hers!
Although a certain CEO looked very calm, actually…
This dumb woman just called me 'hubby'!
She called me 'hubby'…
Ha ha! That feels pretty good!
Why do I have this urge to change her way of addressing me into that?
