798 In my eyes, no one can compare to you.
"I like this surprise a lot; I truly like it very much."
Her eyes widened for a moment as her heart subsequently leaped with joy.
"Really? But I feel that what I gave you isn't surprise but fright, instead…"
She nudged her lips and cursed those two gossipy women in the corridor earlier.
If not for those two, her anger would not get the better of her and turn her surprise into a fiasco…
"No. As long as you appear in front of my eyes, it is a surprise. It will never be a fright." He gave her lips a peck.
She could not help but feel a little guilty upon hearing him say such loving words.
I've really gone too far moments ago…
"For earlier… sorry…" she timidly apologized, lowering her head.
"Stupid woman, you'll never need to apologize to me." He told her this before raising his hand and gently patting her head.
This made her feel as though her heart was soaked in honey.
"Ziming, I've missed you so much!" She hugged his waist and leaned her head against his chest.
"I missed you, too," he replied with a smile, gently caressing her back.
"I've got good news for you!" she excitedly exclaimed.
"Hm?" He raised a brow and motioned for her to continue.
"We'll be colleagues soon!"
"Yes! Your father has appointed me as Ji Group's planning manager! I can start working once I sign the contract!"
She beamed happily and looked at him with twinkling eyes.
"Father kept that position vacant for you, huh," he muttered understandingly.
"Eh? Uncle reserved that position for me?" She looked up at him in shock. Didn't uncle say that that position happens to be the only vacancy in his company?
"Yes. The previous planning manager was sacked by father," he confided.
"…" She was flabbergasted at this. After pausing for a bit, she burst out laughing.
"Pfft! Ha ha ha! Ziming, I realized that uncle is similar to you!"
This pair of father and son is equally adorable and awkward!
Uncle clearly likes me, too, yet he still acts tough with me.
Fine! Since it's like that, I shall reluctantly pretend not to know anything!
The man raised an eyebrow in confusion at her gleeful look.
What is this stupid woman laughing about again?
After sitting in the office for a while, the man made a call to change his passcode for the private elevator. He then knocked off and returned home with her.
Of course, a certain great CEO took her along to ride his VIP elevator.
The two held hands as they walked out of the office. Under the secretaries' shocked gazes, the pair entered the private elevator that she kept talking about.
"Have you remembered the passcode to it?" the man asked softly, keying in the passcode in front of her.
She nodded and smiled brightly. "I remember!"
Probably because Qiao Jingyun had just used it, this VIP elevator had the lingering smell of her perfume.
Smelling this faint sweet fragrance, Pei Ge started imagining the woman.
She should be quite pretty, and she likely has a pure, likeable, seductive appearance.
Also, she must be good at makeup and dressing up…
As she thought of this, she became a little unconfident.
Although she had acquired some skills in that area from Lily, she had never tried it on herself properly.
Just like today, she went looking for him with only light makeup. She did not even change out of her casual clothes.
No wonder those women didn't believe that I am his girlfriend.
Once I begin working here, I must dress well every day!
The elevator reached the first floor while she was lost in her thoughts.
Seeing that she was still in a daze, the man grabbed her hand and led her out.
Exiting the elevator in this way, those in the lobby were of course attracted to them.
Their intense gazes on them made Pei Ge a little embarrassed.
Luckily, being the head of Jiaheng once, she had dealt with serious matters, so although she felt a little abashed for her informal attire, she did not show it on her face.
Since it was not quitting time yet, few people were in the lobby.
There were just a few employees and security personnel present.
What she did not know was that, with the mouths of these few people, she had become an instant celebrity in Ji Group!
"What were you thinking of moments ago?"
After getting in the car, the man fastened her seatbelt.
She pursed her lips, feeling a little stifled inside. "Ziming, did my surprise visit make you lose face?"
"You fool; no one will dare to think that."
He shook his head in amusement at this and proceeded to poke her forehead lightly.
"Don't think of nonsense."
"I'm not. People won't think that we are boyfriend and girlfriend when they see me with you."
She nudged her lips. Although she did not want to admit it, their difference was truly a little huge.
Fine. It's probably not just a little.
"Ziming, is Miss Qiao very pretty? Does she really dress well? She must be quite outstanding since she can open company by herself."
She could not help but think of that woman. Although she had never met her, she still knew her from the rumors.
She must be quite outstanding.
"Pei Ge, in my eyes, no one can compare to you."
