596 I used to date Ji Ziming.
You should know that he is never the type to need a woman's help to dodge another woman…"
Pei Ge was stunned by this.
Next, her mind was filled with Pei Shishi's words.
She has a point. That annoying fellow… with his personality… why will he need a shield?
He is arrogant and prideful. Since he never places anyone in his eyes, why will he rely on someone like me…
"Pei Ge, have you never considered this? Do you think that an average woman like you has any redeeming qualities that he will fall for? With just you?" Noticing her hesitation, Pei Shishi smirked.
With just you?
She was jolted out of her reverie by her cousin's mocking, and her lips curled up into a sardonic smile.
"Why not me? At least, Ziming is now my boyfriend."
Pei Ge, don't be affected by this woman's words. Her intentions aren't pure. She must have some ulterior motive for saying all that! Don't fall for her tricks! Don't let her fool you!
"He he… Pei Ge, you really are a fool." Pei Shishi chuckled, giving her a pitying look.
"Excuse me. I have neither the time nor the energy to waste talking nonsense with you. Ziming is waiting for me, so I'll go now." She had no patience to hear her cousin out, which would only agitate her further; hence, she merely gave her a curt answer.
Probably not expecting this reaction from her, her cousin's expression froze for a moment.
When she rushed to leave, her cousin seemed to come to the realization that she had no interest in what she had to say.
Seeing that she was about to reach the hall, her cousin hurried to call out to her. "Pei Ge, do you know? I've known Ji Ziming since long ago."
Her footsteps faltered at this, but she did not stop walking at all.
Isn't it obvious that they've known each other since long ago?
"Pei Ge, why do you think Ji Ziming's reaction to me is so drastic?" Pei Shishi noted the faltering of her steps and her peach-red lips curled up. "It's so drastic that he had you act as a shield just to hide from me… So much so that he chose you as his girlfriend."
Pound! She felt her heart pound loudly.
No matter how much she told herself that her cousin's words were unreliable, she still could not help her feet from halting.
That's right… That annoying fellow doesn't put anyone in his eyes. Why… does he only… have such a big reaction to my cousin?
Standing behind her and seeing her stop this time, a strangely smug smile appeared on Pei Shishi's face.
She slowly strode over and looked at her with a smile.
"Pei Ge, all this happened for a reason."
"Hur hur. Looks like you won't let me go unless you finish what you want to say." Pei Ge looked at her cousin calmly and smirked coldly. "Fine, then. Let me hear this supposed reason."
"Reason?" Pei Shishi covered her snicker with her hand, yet this smile did not reach her obsidian eyes as she continued to regard the other darkly. "The reason is, of course, I used to date him."
"What?!" she exclaimed in surprise, quickly rebuking, "You're lying!"
How is it possible for Ji Ziming to date my cousin?! That's totally impossible!
"Cousin, your lies to weaken our relationship are really too uncouth. Do you think I'm a fool to believe this?" she mocked.
"You don't believe me?" Pei Shishi still had the same smile on her lips, except it was much more solemn now.
"Hur… It's no wonder that you don't believe me. After all, he is hiding from me like this right now. As if I were a demon… he did not even hesitate in making use of you." She mocked herself in a deprecating tone.
"Pei Ge, you may not believe that we used to be an item, but it is the truth."
Saying this, she flashed a photo to her.
"Look; if I am lying to you, where do you think this photo came from?"
Pei Ge stared at the photo being shown to her. Her frown deepened upon the realization that she did not dare to receive it.
Still, in the end, she had to receive it.
"Pei Ge, I may have lied to you in the past, but this time, I am speaking the truth."
Hearing that, she finally took a good look at the photo in her hand.
Following which, her mind went blank.
Her eyes were filled with disbelief.
She could not believe her eyes and did not want to, either.
That was because the photo was exactly as her cousin had said. Seeing it… she finally understood…
The photo showed a man and a woman.
The couple in it looked intimate. The woman in a white dress with flowing black hair looked heavenly. She was clinging on to the man in a suit.
This man was none other than Ji Ziming, of course.
No. More accurately, it was the younger version of him.
The pair looked compatible, especially since… he had a smile on his face. There was even a warm curl on his usually cold lips…
Even if someone did not know him, one could see from his face that he liked the woman next to him.
"Pei Ge, do you see now? This photo was taken when we were still dating in the past." Pei Shishi felt extremely satisfied when she spotted the disbelief and panic in her eyes.
When she saw her looking upset, she felt as if all the blood in her body could course through her veins smoothly again.
"Pei Ge, why do you think he needs you, and why did he make you his girlfriend? All of that is because of me!"Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
