835 Let us get married after getting engaged next week.
"Pei Ge, let's get married."
She became flabbergasted when she heard that.
Her whole mind turned blank in her shock.
She had never thought that he would say that to her.
"Pei Ge, let's get married," he reiterated, noting her stunned look.
His clear voice was so low and magnetic, yet it was also filled with love and sincerity.
One could feel drunk from his voice alone, or at least, she felt herself melt at the sound of it.
"W-what did you just say?"
She regained her senses and shyly asked him while looking up at him.
"I said, 'Pei Ge, let's get married,'" he repeated. People said that important things needed to be said thrice, and coincidentally, he had repeated his words thrice.
"Are you pulling my leg?"
Although she heard him ask her to marry him thrice, she was still a little in disbelief.
"Do you think I will joke about this?"
The man raised an eyebrow at her, seemingly not pleased with her reaction.
"T-This is a little too sudden, though. We haven't even gotten engaged!"
She blinked at him.
"You want to have an engagement party first?"
She was cut off before she could finish speaking.
"Let's hold one next week, then," he said firmly.
Her mind totally went blank at this.
What do you mean by 'hold one next week'?! In which direction is this going?!
"N-Next week?!" She was totally bewildered by what he had just said. She heard that their mothers seemed to be keen on holding an engagement party in the late spring.
Although it is already early spring, isn't holding it now a little too fast?
"Do you think it's too late?"
He raised an eyebrow, looking as if he would push the engagement forward if she kept speaking.
"No, no, no! Of course not!"
She hurriedly shook her head resolutely.
"Still, if we get engaged next week, how do plan to inform your parents? Will they agree?"
He coldly snorted. "The person getting engaged is me."
"Do you have any problems with these three points?"
Seeing her blur look, the man reached out and pinched her cheek.
"N-No problem at all…"
She was still a little out of it, so she dazedly shook her head.
He nodded in satisfaction and looked at her with a wide smile.
"I'll go back with you tonight to move your luggage and to inform you mom about our engagement."
Still dazed, she nodded. She only registered what had happened after he left her office.
What did he say when he was here?
"Ah!" she belatedly exclaimed.
"E-Engagement n-next week?!"
Right now, she did not have the energy to think about whether Fu Mingxuan was as her boyfriend said: in love with her.
The only thing she could think of was…
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah! Did Ji Ziming just propose to me?!
Still, whose proposal is this simple?!
I seem to have agreed to it, though?!
Hence, the couple quarreling over Fu Mingxuan's matter suddenly patched things up and even agreed to getting engaged and then married fast.
Of course, it was a given that these two were no longer in the mood to work for the day.
The clock had just ticked to signal the end of working hours, but the man was already striding toward her office with a calm look but far-from-calm feelings.
The Ji Group employees respectfully greeted him on his way to her office.
After seeing him walk past and disappear into the corridor, the employees found the courage to gossip.
"Our CEO must be here to get the manager."
"That's for sure!"
"Aish! I really didn't expect our cold and proud CEO to be such a doting boyfriend!"
"Yes, yes. It's so unexpected!"
"I was actually in doubt of our manager being the CEO's girlfriend, but seeing him come get her every day after work regardless of the situation and look at her with such a gentle gaze, I can't continue denying it!"
Knock, knock, knock!
She looked up from the files to the door upon hearing this series of knocks.
Just as she looked up, the man strode in.
She immediately blushed at the sight of him.
Her mind instantly replayed what had happened earlier.
"Let's go move your luggage."
In contrast to her shyness, the man was totally calm as he said this expressionlessly.
Her cheeks burned even more at this.
"Yes, let's go."
With that, he walked up to her side and reached out his hand to pull her up from her seat.
Being dragged out of her office, she finally regained her senses.
"I can walk by myself!"
Feeling the crowd's gazes, she softly told him.
Although he usually got her from work, he was never this early. Moreover, he was even acting intimate by holding her hand in front of everyone…
"Don't make a ruckus. Be a little quieter."
Instead of loosening his grip, he held her hand even tighter.
Luckily, after getting into his private elevator, the fervent gazes on her disappeared.
Thereafter, amid her uneasiness and excitement, the man drove the car all the way to her apartment building.
