639 A Taste of Their Medicine
"I want you to leave Chenguang and Beijing—"
"What? Leave Chenguang and Beijing?!" Before he could finish his statement, she already cut him off in shock.
"That right. Leave the capital." He raised his chin coldly.
"… What if I say 'no'?" She clenched her fists tightly. She had never thought of leaving the city where she was born and raised.
Besides, her mother was here; how could she leave?
"Miss Pei, don't be so eager to reject this as I'm not done talking yet." Seeing how strong her reaction was, his lips curled into a sardonic smile.
She said that she was not in it for his son's money but for his love, instead, but now that he was giving her a chance, she still did not want to leave here and his son…
"… Uncle, I'm sorry. Please continue," she said apologetically, pursing her lips.
"I intend to have you at one of our branch companies to receive training. If you want to enter the Ji family in the future, your position as an assistant isn't good enough."
He stared intently at her.
"Although we don't need a lady of equal social standing as our family to be this house's next madam, she still has to be good enough, so I'll transfer you to a company of my choosing and let you climb up the ranks slowly…"Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
Listening to his words, she easily got what he meant.
Ji Ziming's dad wanted to relocate her to a branch outside the capital for training, and he would bring her back when she was capable enough.
As such, she, a woman with no notable background, could climb up the ranks bit by bit and eventually be somewhat of a match to her boyfriend's status.
Actually, his offer was very tempting to her.
Right now, at Chenguang, she was labeled as the CEO's girlfriend. Not only did her colleagues felt uncomfortable around her, their stares also made her conscious.
If she could leave that company and go somewhere she could learn, it was indeed a good idea.
"How is it? Do you accept my offer?"
He smiled gently upon seeing the hesitation on her face.
"I…" The hesitation on her face deepened. Her mother was still here in the capital; if she left…
"Uncle, can I know where the branch will be? Is it far from Beijing?" she asked, frowning slightly.
"Why? Is a small, unknown place too demeaning for you?" He scoffed.
She shook her head at once, replying fast, "Of course not. It's just that my mom will be left in this city alone; plus, I don't want to be too far from her…"
Her reply made him pause again, not expecting her reason for asking to be that.
"Don't worry. It's not very far. You can come see your mother anytime." Hiding his surprise, he assured her.
"Really? That's great!" A bright smile appeared on her face.
Looking at her smile, he paused again. He could tell that her smile came from the heart.
If she was indeed a scheming woman, why would she have such a clean smile?
"Since you've agreed to it, I'll make the arrangements. Someone will send you to the branch company tomorrow," he informed evenly, still hiding his confusion.
"Okay, uncle." She nodded.
He suddenly realized that he could not spend more time with this woman before him because her behavior and attitude made it impossible to dislike her, and it also made him start thinking that he might have gotten the wrong idea about her.
"That's all from me; you can go now." He snorted. While his impression of her had improved by a lot, he still strove to put on an unhappy expression.
"Okay. I'll get going then, uncle." She actually wanted to ask about her role in that branch company, but upon perceiving his impatience with her, she decided against it.
"Hold up!" She was about to step out of the study when he stopped her again.
"En? Uncle, is there anything else you want to tell me?"
She turned to look at the middle-aged man sitting behind his desk confusedly.
"When you're transferred to that branch company, you can't contact Ziming for the first two weeks. You can't let him know where you are, either; I'll get someone to change your phone then." He stared at her coldly.
She paused a little at his request but quickly smiled thereafter.
"Okay, I got it, I definitely won't contact him."
He did not expect her to agree so readily, and judging from her face, she seemed happy to do it.
In that instant, he could not understand how her mind worked.
"Uncle, is there anything else? If there's none, can I leave now?" she asked politely. Seeing his contemplative look, with deeply furrowed brows, she smiled.
He returned to himself when he heard her question and hastily shook his head. "There's nothing else. I hope you live up to your promise. You can go now." Looking at her, his eyes became filled with hesitation.
"I understand. Bye, uncle."
With that, she stepped out of his study. Once she was outside, the smile she was hiding appeared.
"Ha ha ha! Ji Ziming, just you wait! I'll give you a taste of your medicine! Hmph! Didn't you up and leave without a word? Now, I'll do the same thing to you! Hmph, hmph, hmph!"
