610 Pei Ge, those people are jealous of you!
She sucked in a deep breath and closed the email.
Stay calm! Stay calm! There's nothing to be mad about this. There's really nothing to be…Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
Didn't you already know that things would progress this way when your relationship got exposed?
I'm just a plain woman who can be a temporary, slightly prettier Cinderella with the help of Lily's magic touch.
Other than those times, I'm merely an unattractive woman who can't match up to Ji Ziming and has no redeeming qualities.
How can other people be willing to be defeated by a person like me?
So, isn't this something very normal…
She smirked wryly, her face turning cold.
Her heart also slowly turned frosty.
She remained in this gloomy state the whole morning because of this forwarded email.
At lunchtime, He Yan tried speaking to her, but Qin Qitong's appearance made this impossible.
"Sister Pei Ge, I heard that you had crushed everyone with your beauty at the dinner banquet my cousin and you attended yesterday!" The girl pulled her to the company's canteen by the arm as she excitedly chirped.
"Mhm." She merely gave her a listless reply, still affected by the email.
Engrossed in her excitement, the girl failed to notice her abnormality as she continued. "The waltz you and my cousin did was recorded by someone at the party last night! It's absolutely amazing! All my friends and mom's friend were full of praises for you, and they really want to meet you!"
She was jumping with joy every time she thought of how her usually haughty and strict mother got a very good impression of Pei Ge.
"Sister Pei Ge, my mom likes you a lot!"
"Mhm." Her reply was still listless.
The girl finally noticed the abnormality at this point.
"Sister Pei Ge, what's wrong? You don't seem to be very happy. Is there something bothering you?" The girl blinked at her concernedly.
'I…" She opened her mouth to speak, but recalling that earlier email, she did not know what to say.
In the end, she decided to keep mum about everything.
"It's nothing. I just didn't sleep well last night, so I'm feeling a little sleepy." She smiled at her.
"Ohhh! You didn't sleep well… Is it because of my cousin?" The girl's eyes lit up as she shot her an amorous look, wiggling her eyebrows.
"…" She exasperatedly tugged at her lips. "It's not what you think."
Although she did indeed not sleep well due to that annoying fellow, it was definitely not what this girl was thinking!
"Eh? What do you think I'm thinking?" The girl blinked innocently at her. "Sister Pei Ge, I have yet to think of anything, so what do you think it is, then?"
"…" Clearly having lost a point in their battle, she had no way to rebut her.
Amid their chattering, the pair reached the company's canteen.
The moment they stepped inside, Pei Ge realized at once that many gazes were on her.
"Look; that's the CEO's girlfriend."
"She looks really average."
"That woman doesn't look simple."
"I think that email is true."
"I think it is, too…"
Pei Ge's mood plummeted again upon hearing this buzz in the canteen.
"Sister Pei Ge, don't care about these people. They're just jealous of you! Ignore these gossipy b*tches." Qin Qitong, who was also hearing the buzz, swept a threatening glare at the crowd as she reassured her.
She nodded at the girl's comforting words.
"Mhm." She understood the logic, but she still felt uncomfortable.
Under the crowd's unwavering gazes, the two made their way to Pan Xinlei and Bi Zheng's table.
"Ge Ge, you're here."
Pan Xinlei hid a chuckle behind her hand once she spotted her.
Seeing her smile, Pei Ge knew at once that this good big sister of hers was laughing at her and Ji Ziming's expense.
"Aye, I really didn't expect our CEO to be such a jealous person. He is even jealous of me and Qitong." Pan Xinlei teased her, clearly unaffected by her becoming the CEO's girlfriend.
She felt relieved at her friend's normal treatment of her.
"Mhm. He's a petty man; ignore him." Pei Ge smiled back at her.
After a few friendly banters, she noticed Bi Zheng who was silently eating his lunch next to Qin Qitong. She then recalled that she had something more important to settle!
"Bi Zheng, are you and your girlfriend okay?" She put down her chopsticks and looked at him solemnly.
The man also put down his chopsticks at her question and, with a blank expression, answered, "Yes, we're good."
Seeing how much he resembled a robot, she could not help but fume. Finally, she understood how Qin Qitong had felt at that time.
"What do you mean 'good'? Is she acting abnormally recently?" she pressed on before nudging her lips.
"No." He peered at her, seemingly finding her to be the strange one.
"…" No? How is that possible?! His girlfriend is obviously fishing for a rich man. I don't believe that she's not acting abnormal in any way!
"For example, does she return home very late, always smells of alcohol, or, perhaps, has new items on her person?" she subtly hinted.
This guy's reply, however, only made her want to puke blood.
"No. She usually comes home late and regularly smells of alcohol. Oh, she also likes to buy things, but those are just part and parcel of her job."
He rarely spoke such a long sentence, but after hearing this, her expression turned ugly.
What the hell is all this?!
"Aiya! Sister Pei Ge, you should just tell him straight out! You can't get through his thick skull by simply subtly hinting to this dunce!" The girl, sitting beside him, urged her hurriedly.
She pursed her lips and decided to be straightforward about it.
"Bi Zheng, I saw your girlfriend hanging around intimately with a man last night. Also… it was more than one man."
"I knew it! I definitely didn't see wrongly!" the girl exclaimed.
Compared to her reaction, this man's response was lukewarm.
All the other three people around the table were dumbfounded by his reaction.
"'Oh'? Is this your only reaction? Are you a fool?!" The girl was instantly enraged by this and glared at him fiercely.
The man merely remained his usually calm self.
Recovering from her shock, Pei Ge calmly took out her phone.
"If you don't believe me, I took a photo of the incident. Take a look at it yourself."
