772 She has an ill-fate with Ji Ziming.
The man naturally did not manage to guess her little scheme.
Of course, he also did not believe that she wanted to thank Qiao Jingyun.
He was not blind and could see that she disliked his benefactor.
"Actually, we don't have to go." After thinking about it, he told her this.
He gently hugged her and dipped his head to whisper, "Although she saved my life, you are still more important to me."
Whether it was the hot breath fanning her ear or those sweet words, she felt very ecstatic.
"I know; I believe you."
She rested her head on his chest and parted her red lips to express her thoughts.
"Actually, my aim for wanting to go there is to let her know that you're mine and that you'll only like me in this lifetime!"
As she said this, she circled her arms around his neck and tiptoed to plant a kiss on his cold lips.
This man can only be mine!
If anyone dares to snatch him away, I won't cower and will let those naïve people know that I, Pei Ge, am not one to be trifled with!
This sudden kiss caused the man by surprise. Finally, he got why his girlfriend wanted to do that.
His heart promptly leaped with joy.
This stupid woman is actually like me…
This time, without any unperceptive person to disturb them, the two shared a deep kiss.
The temperature around them rose as the air around them sparked with tension.
Soon, however, this pair of lovebirds reluctantly ended this fiery kiss.
There was no other reason except that… she was hungry!
The rumbling of her stomach effectively destroyed the amorous atmosphere.
Ahhh! Gosh! Why is my stomach making noise at this moment?!
She was in dismay the moment she heard her stomach growl!
She had nearly tasted 'meat', but now the mood for this was entirely ruined.
The man lowered his head to look at her, seemingly very amused by her frustration.
"Okay. Let's eat."
He led her to the dining table by the hand and had her sit down to start eating.
"This is good."
"This one is also good for the body."
While the couple was harmoniously having dinner, a certain woman at another place had a very dark face.
"Pei Ge… PEI GE!"
Nearly hysterical, Qiao Jingyun swept everything on the table to the floor.
"Ma'am, are you—"
Her assistant rushed in the moment she heard the commotion in the office, but she had just stepped in when she was chased out by her boss's growl.
Hence, Qiao Jingyun remained in the office alone as she vented her anger.
Pei Ge, the nerve of you!
She smirked coldly as an eerie smile appeared on her lips.
"Do you think I don't know that it's you who wanted to come…"
She had been by his side for a long time, so how could she not know the personality of the man she liked?
That apathetic man would never change his mind once he made a decision.
Hence, when he agreed to attend her company's opening ceremony, it must be due to that woman.
"Why… Do you wanna take me a notch down by displaying how happy you two are? Hur!" She snorted coldly with a mocking look.
"Unfortunately, that'll be just wistful thinking! Do you think your petty tricks will work on me? Dream on!"
She had already known about her existence even in New York.
Before she returned from abroad, she had her investigated and understood her past.
As mentioned in Master Sun's Art of War, the way to victory was to know one's and the enemy's strength.
"Pei Ge, the show has just started. I hope that you don't disappoint me too much."
Her gloominess was soon replaced by smugness.
Ji Ziming is mine! He can only be mine! Back when I became his life savior, our ill-fate began…
She… was the man's real soulmate.
If not, the person he found back then would not be me but that… person.
Thinking of this, she shook her head to discard the blurry image in her mind.
It's been so many years. Why did I think of that girl again?
After shaking away that image in her mind, she picked up her phone from the ground.
"It's time for Pei Shishi to make a move!" If that d*mn woman really gets engaged with Ji Ziming, it won't be fun otherwise.
She tapped on the screen of her phone to call Pei Shishi.
"Hey. It's time for us to make a move.
"Relax. Everything is within my control. There won't be any trouble coming your way. You only need to… do as I say.
"That's why I'm asking you to follow my orders. Don't you know that the trust between a man and a woman is very fragile?
"It only takes a seed of doubt for misunderstanding to blossom… Trust me. No matter how loving they are now, I can still… make them doubt each other."
A storm was brewing. Alas, the loving couple was clueless that two people were scheming to separate them using despicable means.
"Ziming, be honest with me! What is my caller ID on your phone?" After they were done having dinner, Pei Ge clung onto his arm and probed.
"…" The man froze for a moment at this question.
She narrowed her eyes at his reaction.
"Give me your phone for a minute."
Who knew though that, not only would he refuse to hand his phone over, he would even hide it at her order?
"Pass it over!" She also put her request into actions.
After a game of snatching, she won with a slight advantage!
As she lay on his chest, her fingers quickly swiped his screen and tapped open the call log.
In the end—
"'Foolish and stupid woman'?!" What the hell is this name?! Also, how am I foolish and how am I stupid?
"Cough!" he coughed lightly, wanting to get away from under her.
How could she give him this chance, though? She planted her hand on his chest and coldly harrumphed.
"Quickly change my caller ID on your phone! If not, I'll make you unable to leave this sofa today!"
"I think… this name is pretty good."
"How is this good?! Hurry and change it!"
"What do you want to change it to?"
"You think about it yourself!"
"Go and die!"
