902 The tumultuous ‘honeymoon’ has started!
"Dear passengers, the airplane has safely landed in Zhangjiajie. The local temperature is 20 degrees Celsius. The plane will still travel on land for some distance. Please properly remain seated in your seats. When retrieving your luggage, please ensure that the opening is closed to prevent the items inside from sliding out…"
Pei Ge slowly rose from her short slumber.
The moment she took off her eye mask, she spotted Ji Ziming looking at her with his head turned sideways.
She stretched her lazy back and smiled at him. "You didn't rest?"
As they were taking an early morning flight, she had gotten up early. Moreover, since they were in the first class, she fell asleep immediately after they got to their seats.
"Yes. I looked through some documents."
He nodded and tucked his thin, silver notebook into his laptop bag.
She nudged her lips at this, softly mumbling, "You dared tell me to leave my work aside, yet you yourself still worked while on board a plane."
"From this moment onward, I will start my holiday and concentrate on accompanying you." He rubbed her head in amusement as he gave this promise with a gentle smile.
"That's more like it!"
Amid their happy chatter, they got off the plane.
However, while they were getting off, a brief interlude caused her to grumble at him again.
"Do I look that easy to bully?"
When they exited the airport, she turned to glare at him in displeasure, her expression clearly conveying, 'I am very unhappy right now! Extremely dissatisfied! Quickly appease me!
The man shook his head in amusement when he saw his fiancée's adorable expression.
"Alright. It's just a stranger."
"Not a stranger! Don't I look like your girlfriend? That woman actually flirted with you in front of me! She's clearly not putting me in her eye!"
She huffed and pinched his arm.
This woman throwing a tantrum made him feel amused. "You also didn't give her any face and even taught her a good lesson."
"Hng! It's because you're too conspicuous! You'd better wear uglier clothes next time that you're out with me!" she righteously ordered, giving him a glare.
It was not surprising that she would get angry, though.
The man was just too eye-catching for her peace of mind! As soon as she woke up from her nap and prepared to get off the plane with him, more than four flight stewardesses flocked to his side and gave him suggestive winks.
Two beauties from the first class were even openly sending him flirtatious winks.
The more eye-boggling thing was that the woman blatantly sauntered over to seduce him.
How could she not get angry at all those?
She was not one to swallow her misery; hence, she immediately gave that lady a dressing down for attempting to seduce her fiancé.
She castigated that woman so much the latter nearly cried from losing so much face.
"Okay, okay, okay. Don't be angry anymore."
The man patted her head before planting a light kiss on her forehead.
Instantly, her incessant yammering stopped as her eyes shone with sweetness.
Those passersby who happened to witness this affectionate scene turned to shoot the two looks of envy.
"Whoa! That's so sweet!"
"Yeah! It's really romantic!"
"Eh? Why do I find them familiar-looking?"
"I do, too!"
Hearing the crowd's excited hubbub, Pei Ge grabbed his hand and ran out of the airport without a second's hesitation.
"Aye! Why are they running away?"
"Are they perhaps celebrities?!"
"Must be! If not, why would they be familiar-looking?"
Hence, their act of fleeing caused an unimaginable, huge chain reaction.
Seeing a trail of people chasing after a couple, the crowd in the airport joined in as well.
Pei Ge only intended to shake off their few pursuers so that both of them would remain unknown.
Who knew that a large crowd would end up chasing after them, though?! This made her really want to puke out blood!
"The hell?! Are all these people crazy? We're not even famous celebrities, so why are they chasing us?!"
She indignantly complained as she rushed out while pulling Ji Ziming with her.
A certain great CEO, who was taken by surprise by her action, regained his senses upon hearing her grumbling.
He eyed the horde of people running after them and then his fiancée, whose face was red from all the exertion, and cocked an eyebrow.
With that, he took the lead and brought her into a small alley.
"Eh? Where are they?"
After being dragged by the man to hide left and right, they finally shook of their pursuers.
Seeing that no one was chasing them anymore, the woman leaned against the wall feebly and panted heavily.
"Hah… hah… hah… I really don't know what to say about those people. We are no artistes and just a normal engaged couple, so why are there so many who know us?" She struggled to catch her breath while she commented helplessly.
In the end, when her gaze flitted on to Ji Ziming, she realized—
Eh?! This fellow! He's not sweating and his face looks fine!
"Ziming, we ran for so long; don't you feel tired at all?" she asked in confusion between her labored breaths.
"No. I worked out often." He lightly peered at the woman leaning against the wall weakly with a serious expression. "When our holiday ends, you must accompany in my daily work out."
"…" Sh*t! Can I choose to reject this?!
After staying in the alley for a while, the man made a call and left the place while holding her hand.
"Mr. Ji, your and Miss Pei's room has been prepared. We've already brought your luggage there."
