669 The most romantic confession I like is...
The next day, as it was a holiday, Pei Ge slept until the afternoon before she crawled out of bed.
"Hah! What a peaceful sleep!"
She stretched her lazy back and stood while yawning before the basin to wash herself up.
Brushing her teeth and washing her face, she looked at herself in the mirror. When she noted her fine complexion, her mood brightened further.
"Ha ha! Indeed, people look good when they have sufficient sleep!"
She patted her cheeks and said to herself happily.
She exited the washroom with a refreshed look and was pondering on what she should eat for lunch when her phone rang.
"Hello, Ge Ge. What do you want to eat for lunch? Let's have lunch together."
Fu Mingxuan's gentle voice came through the receiver.
She raised a brow at this. "Senior, you're supposed to be getting ready for your big confession today. Why are you still inviting me for lunch?"
"He he! I'm here to get some more tips." He chuckled in a relaxed manner.
"Yo, looks like senior is in a good mood! You seem to be awfully confident!" She could not help teasing him when she noted how happy he sounded.
"Probably not confident, but I just feel that she shouldn't hate me."
"Pfft! What do you mean by not hating you?"
She shook her head in amusement at his assessment.
"Come on out. I'm downstairs of your house."
"Okay. Wait for me a little. I'll be down soon."
She did not drag this out further. Thinking that she had not had lunch, anyway, she quickly picked up her bag and left her apartment.
She had just gotten into the car when he passed her a cup of hot tea.
"Thank you!" She received the hot tea and took small sips.
"Ge Ge, what do you want to eat?"
"Hm? Something light will do. My small clique of assistants has been getting me meat and fish that I've become a little fatter," she helplessly said.
Unknown whether she was good with people or fast foods near her company were being honest, yet her recent meals had been extremely good. She wanted to slim down while she was still busy with work, but she did not slim down much at all.
His expression froze a little at her complaints.
"It's no good?"
He had carefully chosen a five-star restaurant for her. Did it not suit her taste?
"It's not that it isn't good. Rather, it's too good that I didn't manage to slim down in the end."
Her reply made him burst into laughter.
"Stop laughing. That's not even funny."
She truly felt that her senior was easily amused as he could laugh for no reason.
"Ge Ge, frankly speaking, you are fine like that. Don't keep thinking about slimming down." After he was done laughing, he gave her his honest advice.
"Is that so…" She could not help but think of Ji Ziming when she heard this.
Actually, when one fell for someone, they would wish to match up that person.
Before, she had never thought of slimming down for someone. Even when she was with Zhou Zhuoyang, the thought of slimming down for him had never once crossed her mind.
Now, she was willing to do it for that annoying fellow.
"Ge Ge, no matter whether you are fat or skinny, in my heart, you are the most beautiful person."
Noting her reminiscing look, Fu Mingxuan's eyes dimmed as he said this to her in a hoarse voice.
When she heard him say that, though, for some reason, she had the urge to flee.
"H-Ha ha! Senior, you shouldn't joke like that. The most beautiful person in your heart should only be the woman that you like. Ha ha! Senior, stop trying to reassure me by telling me lies."
She laughed dryly, feeling awkward.
He was not Ji Ziming. In fact, his EQ was above the average person's.
Thus, he easily detected her uneasiness.
"Ge Ge, your inferiority complex seems to be more severe than in the past. Don't forget that you used to be your school's flower, so you're really the most beautiful person in my heart back then."
His lips curled into a sincere smile.
"Still, the woman in my heart is of course similarly beautiful."
Her emotions slowly returned to normal at this.
"The past is unbearable to recall. 'A hero is silent about his past glories', so let's not talk about this anymore. We should properly discuss what to eat for lunch!"
"Yes, I also think that food is more important."
After deciding what to eat while in the car, they quickly reached their destination.
As she entered the restaurant to have lunch with the man, Ji Ziming reached Tianjin and secretly started busying himself.
"Senior, I suddenly recall; aren't you planning to confess tonight? Why do I hear that you're attending Jiaheng's year-end gathering?"
Pei Ge peeled her lobster while asking him that.
"You'll know it, then."
He smiled and placed the lobster he had peeled in her plate.
"Tsk! So secretive."
She rolled her eyes at him and dug into her lobster.
"Ge Ge what time do you think I should confess?"
He wiped off the lobster juice from his hands and smilingly asked her.
"Hm?" She blinked at him. Carefully pondering on it for a while, she replied, "I heard that it'll snow tonight, so it'll be a quiet night. I think confessing while snowflakes drift down will be quite romantic!"
It's better if, in the background, there are sparkling neon lights and fireworks!
As she continued yammering, she felt a little excited even.
"Are you suggesting outdoors?"
He was made muddle-headed by her suggestion as he confirmed in shock.
"Yes, that's right. I think that women like that kind of romantic scene!" She nodded affirmatively.
"Flowers, fireworks, stars, and snow – these only affect women more and never less."
"Do you like that, too?" He looked at her in confusion.
"As for me, I can't say that I like it. Fine, to be honest, I like it, too." She confessed in the end, smiling sheepishly.
Actually, if the man I like confesses to me, I'll agree to it whether he does something romantic or not.
Still, receiving a romantic confession makes the memories fonder and harder to forget.
"He he! Ge Ge, I realize that I really don't understand you at all." He could not help shaking his head while laughing when she honestly admitted this.
So much for arranging that in advance. Looks like the plan will have to be changed!
"He he! I'm a regular person from the start! I'll also like all the things normal women like!"
While she smiled, she felt a twinge of envy for the woman he liked inside.
Sigh! It'd be great if the person I like could confess like that to me, too!
