606 No good; I“m no good without you.
A voice broke through her imagination just as it was starting to gallop wildly.
"Ge Ge, why are you still here? Let me send you back."
Lifting her head, she saw Fu Mingxuan's dashing, warm, innocuous face appear in front of her.
"Senior?" She looked behind him but did not see either Mu Heng or Liao Gaofei.
The thought that this was a little weird just popped up in her head when the man spoke again.
"Let's go; I'll send you back."
"It's okay senior; Li Qi, my driver, will be here soon." She smiled but rejected his offer.
Thinking of how she had read too much into things earlier, she felt weird facing this man now.
"It's been so long. Your driver is probably being held back by something. Why don't you give him a call to ask?" he proposed, smiling gently at her.
"How can it be…" She reflexively replied as she looked straight at him.
However, before long, she received a phone call from her chauffeur, as if proving this man's words right.
"Sister Pei Ge, I got caught up in a small accident. I'm stuck with the traffic enforcer for the time being and can't come pick you up soon. How about you take a cab home this one time?" Li Qi suggested over the phone.
She paused at the driver's suggestion and at the smile on Fu Mingxuan's face.
How can it be so coincidental?
"Okay. I'll go back on my own," she acquiesced, hanging up the phone thereafter.
The man smiled at her after the call ended and gently persisted.
"Come on, Ge Ge; I'll send you back."
She pursed her lips, a hint of hesitation on her face.
For some reason, the man was giving her the chills today.
"Why, Ge Ge? We count as good friends, right? Are you not going to give me face?" He looked at her a little gloomily and sighed, his expression reminiscent. "I guess that it's been so many years; our relationship is no longer what they used to be. You even sat on the back of my bicycle in the past."
Looking at his gloomy face, Pei Ge was racked with guilt as she thought that she might have overdone it.
Actually, I may be overthinking things. What does senior's problem with his beloved goddess have to do with me?
In the end, she nodded with a smile.
"Okay, let's go. I'll trouble senior to send me back home."
"Eh, dumb bird, where's Mingxuan?"
After Mu Heng came back from the bathroom, he saw that only Liao Gaofei was left in the room.
"Oh, he got a phone call and left; it's something about his company," the other replied casually, proceeding to put down his wine glass.
He frowned at his reply. Instinctively, he felt that something was off.
"That's not right… Dumb bird, do you feel that he's acting a little weird today?"
"Strange? Strange in what way?" The other eyed him with confusion.
Feeling exasperated upon seeing his clueless look, Mu Heng gave the guy a side-eye. "I call you a dumb bird, and you really are one, huh! Couldn't you tell that Mingxuan's been acting really weird today? D'you think that, with his personality, he's the type to say those mushy things?"
"Oh, you're talking about that." Liao Gaofei finally got it and replied nonchalantly, "It's normal for him to act weirdly and say things differently today. After all, he has just run into the goddess he hasn't seen for over a decade. Unfortunately, before he could rejoice, she disappeared again. No matter who it is, they'll certainly be different from the usual."
Mu Heng frowned at his reply and still felt that something was wrong.
"Seriously, I never thought that Mingxuan and Ziming's girlfriend know each other." Liao Gaofei sighed, taking a sip of wine.
A thought flashed through the Casanova's mind at his remark, but before the former could catch it, the latter's reply interrupted him.
"Hey, since it's just the two of us left, let's find a fun place to relax," he smilingly suggested.
These words caught his attention and made him toss that earlier thought aside.
While these two were gamely seeking fun, it was painfully tense on Pei Ge and Fu Mingxuan's side.
The woman felt awkward as she sat in the passenger seat next to the man and listened to the soft music playing in the car.
Although she was once very familiar with him, and given time, they would have become good friends, it had been more than a decade. Now, they were strangers.
"Cough." She coughed to ease the tension in the air, silently regretting accepting his offer.
"How have you been all these years?"
The man, who had maintained his silence all this while, finally spoke up.
"En. Pretty good," she replied with a smile, visibly growing more relaxed.
"When did you meet Ziming?" probed the man. He seemed to be making conversation.
"It's been a while," she answered honestly, pausing a little but did not think more of it.
As she spoke, she recalled her first encounter with Ji Ziming, and all the funny things that had happened in the company later because she was trying to hide from him.
As she reminisced, a bright smile showed on her face.
Lost in her memories, she did not realize that the man beside her had stopped the car and was now looking at her with a complex look.
By the time she returned to her senses, he had already retracted his gaze and started driving again.
"Er, senior, you've been doing well for yourself all these years, right?" She thought to ask about him in return.
He kept his eyes on the road as he replied to her neutrally.
"No, I haven't been well all these years."Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
