845 He either is sexually incompetent or has someone else in his heart.
The call was quickly picked up.
"Hello, Ge Ge! It should be quite late there; why are you calling me?"
Her best friend's cheerful voice came through at once.
"Xiaoyu, I have something to tell you!"
Her festive mood improved further upon hearing her best friend's voice.
"What is it? From your voice, it should be something good!"
Tang Xiaoyu grinned.
"Yes, it is! It's even more than that!"
Her best friend's voice was filled with bliss, and even through the phone, she could still perceive it.
"Hm?! Wait! Don't tell me right away; let me guess!"
With her interest piqued, she tried guessing what her best friend wanted to tell her.
"Are you perhaps… pregnant, so you'll have a shotgun marriage?"
Pei Ge rolled her eyes at this.
"Nonsense. Where is your imagination running? How am I supposed to get pregnant when Ziming and I haven't—"
She realized that she might have revealed something she should not have.
She quickly shut her mouth, but despite doing so, her perceptive friend still managed to catch on to it.
"The hell, Ge Ge! You two haven't had sex yet?! Are you serious? You guys have been dating for quite a while now! Don't tell me… that that fellow is sexually incompetent?" exclaimed her best friend in shock.
"Hey, don't spout nonsense! What sexually incompetent? He's very normal…"
She screamed her rebuke but soon quieted down as her expression turned shy.
"Yo, yo, yo, yo! It seems that you've seen his 'little brother'! How is it? Is it long? Is it thick?"
The other kept teasing her amid her embarrassment.
"Can you be more serious? You are a woman!"
She really had no idea how to counter her best friend's teasing. Although she was straightforward, she was still quite conservative.
If not for that, how would she still remain chaste even now when she clearly loved the man?
"Be honest with me; which stage are you guys in now?" Her best friend was apparently curious about that.
"J-Just a normal dating relationship," she replied, coughing slightly.
"A normal dating relationship? Like what?"
"Like going on dates, having meals, watching movies, holding hands… kissing, and…"
Her voice grew softer as she listed all that off.
"…" The woman on the other end was a little helpless.
"Other than kissing? Have you guys interacted on a more intimate level?"
"Huh? What interact on a more intimate level?" She cluelessly blinked.
What is Xiaoyu talking about?
"Fine, fine! I've been defeated by you two! Then, until now, you guys have merely kissed? Tsk! Indeed, if two tsundere people are matched together, they'll only ever be herbivores!" spat her best friend.
When her best friend despised them, she started speaking up for Ji Ziming and her.
"He cherishes me, so he doesn't touch me. It's not the nonsense you are thinking about. I… once said that we c-can do it, but he said that we should get married first before d-doing it…"
Her conservative words made her friend exasperated.
"Just say have sex; what 'do it'? Please. We are mature women who can't be more mature; can we not be this innocent anymore?"
"Cough, cough!" She lightly coughed out of embarrassment.
"Still, I find your boyfriend a little strange."
"Yes, he is extremely strange. Keep in mind that men are creatures that think with their lower halves. If he doesn't touch you despite you giving him the green light when he loves you this much, isn't that a little strange? Anyway, I think a man like that is sexually incompetent or has someone else in his heart!"
She froze a little upon hearing that, and her friend's next words made her heart tremble.
"Something happened on the day you gave him the green light, right? Did he show signs of arousal? For example, his lower half perking up, his face turning red, or his breathing turning ragged like he's under the influence."
"…" She was nonplussed.
The man… did not seem to have exhibited any of those when they slept in the same bed. He even seemed pretty gentle and calm.
Perhaps… Did I remember wrongly?
People tended to feel more insecure and imagine wild things when they were in love.
This call was to inform her best friend of that upcoming joyous occasion, but she suddenly felt as if her joy had been extinguished by a douse of cold water.
"Hello? What's wrong? Are you okay?"
Her best friend's queries jolted her out of her reverie.
"Yes, I'm fine."
"Aish. I misspoke earlier. Actually, I'm not an expert on how you guys interact, so don't mind my words too much." Seemingly thinking that she had said too much, her best friend hastily tried to play it down.
"Xiaoyu, have you, with your boyfriend, done those things?"
She pursed her lips and tactfully probed.
"Zhengrong and I?"
For some reason, this question made her best friend pause.
After a long time, her voice rang out happily again.
"Of course, we did! He loves me so much, so we've done it before!"
She could not help but feel a little desolate at her vivacious voice. Am I not attractive enough?
"Oh, right! What did you want to tell me, anyway?"
"I'm getting engaged to Ziming next week. Are you coming?"
