810 An extremely jealous CEO Ji is very scary.
After making their rounds in the banquet hall, the excitement and happiness in Pei Ge eventually became…
That was right! It was indeed speechlessness!
She had never expected Ji Ziming to be such a jealous person. She merely spoke one extra remark to another man, and it was even a very courteous remark spoken in his presence, yet this man actually immediately gave her attitude!
More importantly, he even warned that innocent man!
"Ziming, don't do that. If you are like this, how are we supposed to work in the future?"
She looked at her boyfriend, feeling a headache coming on. Actually, when he was introducing her to others moments ago, she was already thinking of expanding her network.
Knowing those c-level executives or young masters would be pretty beneficial for her in work next time.
However, her boyfriend seemed to be very unwilling to see her speak to another person.
"You are my woman. Even if you don't work, I can still provide for you for a lifetime."
He lightly peered at her and domineeringly declared this.
Although he was the one who had suggested coming here, he was currently regretting it!
He had already been very displeased the moment he noticed those fervent gazes on the woman beside him.
Inside, he even had the urge to hide her away and not let anyone else see her so that she could only stay by his side.
Any woman would be touched to hear this from him, not to mention Pei Ge.
Still, what she felt more was displeasure.
That was because she did not want to be a kept woman. She preferred fighting alongside the person she loved with her abilities.
With their relationship not being equal, it gave her a feeling of inferiority that she hid well.
Right now, her goal was to diminish the inferiority she felt with her effort.
"Ziming, I don't need you to provide for me. I want to work hard with you."
She leaned her head against his shoulder. "I like you. Please also give me some freedom, okay?"
Her soft and earnest pleading dissolved the frustration in his heart a little.
He knew that he had been a little unreasonable today.
Lowering his head to look at the woman leaning against his shoulder, he nodded lightly.
"I understand. Sorry."
"No. You needn't apologize to me. I know that it's because you care for me so much!"
Saying this, she raised her head and lightly kissed his chin.
Her sudden kiss made him cough lightly as his ears flushed.
"Still, you must keep your distance from those people! You're forbidden from telling others your number. Also, don't let any man touch you and don't let—"
With a stern expression, he solemnly rattled off his rules to her.
However, before he could finish listing out all his requests, he was cut off by her.
"Stop, stop, stop!"
She rolled her eyes, feeling amused and displeased.
"Do you think your requests… are possible?" She shook her head in amusement. "First, how am I supposed to work without telling others my number? I'll be your company's planning manager soon; how can I not contact any clients?
"Second, don't let other men touch me? How am I supposed to greet other people and shake their hands, then?"
With a look that showed that she was very much done with him, she seemed to be disdainful of what he had just said.
She could not be blamed for saying these, though. After all, she had just told a certain CEO to give her some freedom, yet this annoying fellow's bad habits popped up again.
Tsk, tsk, tsk! Sometimes, love is truly a sweet burden!
"…" The man's brows twitched ever so slightly when she rebuked him point-by-point. Still, he quickly spoke again.
"I'll have Du Wen arrange an office number for you later. Don't tell others this number you are using now."
She nodded in amusement at the sight of him feeling conflicted over this kind of issue. With a grin, she replied, "I understand, my dear boyfriend!"
"Alright, alright! I'm a little hungry again! Accompany me to get some food!"
With a wide smile, she pulled him by his arm toward the buffet table again.
Ugh! It's a pity that I can't eat much; the desserts at this buffet are really delicious, too!
Hence, while others were chatting and sipping wine, she was dragging him everywhere to eat.
Just as she felt that she could not continue eating, the music in the banquet hall changed into waltz.
The elegantly dressed guests orderly put down their wine glasses and followed their partners to the dance floor.
"My prince, let's go, too! We need to digest our food a little after having our fill!"
Just like a man asking for a dance, she cheekily bent her waist toward Ji Ziming.
Despite wearing an evening gown, she did not look out-of-place performing this gentlemanly bow.
Rather, she seemed to have emitted an inexplicable queenly aura!
The man raised his brow slightly at her. How could this domineering and cold CEO place his hand in hers like a woman would, though?
He coldly snorted and then reached out his hand. Before she could react, he tyrannically pulled her into his embrace.
"Let's go, my princess."
Once in a blue moon, he also replied to her in jest.
Seeing the devilish glint in his eyes and slanted lips, her cheeks instantly reddened as she dizzily followed him to the dance floor…
The moment the two entered the dance floor and started waltzing, those around them left one after another.
Eventually and unknowingly, only the two of them were on the dance floor.
What they did not expect more was that—
