927 She is about to make the headline on the entertainment section
At this thought, Qiao Jingyun's eyes lit up.
She hurriedly began to question Sister Yun.
"Please repeat what you've heard again."
Just like that, what she had heard. Even though the older woman's words were not in verbatim, she could still deduce the key point of the couple's conversation.
"I understand. Thank you so much for this, Sister Yun."
She hung up the phone after she thanked the woman.
The instant she hung up the phone, a bright smile appeared on her face.
"Seriously…" She laughed with a face full of excitement. "Even the heavens are on my side!"
She then began mumbling to herself excitedly, "Pei Ge, even the heavens are on my side. What right do you have to trump me?"
Silly girl, your marriage certificate is bogus!
"La la la~" She hummed a tune to herself happily. Sitting down before her work desk, she readjusted the plan she had and then made a call.
"Hello, you can begin now. The plan has been brought forward again."
Pei Ge, the game has officially begun…
"Are you feeling cold?"
Seeing his woman sneeze, Ji Ziming instinctively increased the car heater.
"No, my nose is just a little itchy. I'm not cold at all." Pei Ge shook her head with a smile.
"We have a lot of banquets to attend, but you can skip attending them if you don't want," said the man tenderly at her as he stared straight ahead while driving.
"It's fine. I'll attend it with you," replied the woman without hesitation.
"Okay." He smiled when he heard her reply.
The traffic light turned red and he stopped the car.
"Right, Mu Heng asked us out for dinner. Do you want to go?" he asked, seemingly having just recalled the matter.
She nodded and answered seriously, "Yes, let's go. They are all friends you grew up with."
Looking at her serious expression, the man laughed.
It was nighttime. Even though the capital did not have starlight, it had neon lights, which were much brighter than the stars.
Dressed casually, Pei Ge followed the man to the five-star hotel Mu Heng had told them.
"Little Chili, long time no see. You're still as chubby, huh." The playboy teased her the moment she walked into the suite.
She rolled her eyes at the man.
"Same old, same old. You're still as annoying."
"Ha ha!" Instead of getting upset by her remark about him, the man laughed in clear pleasure.
"Not bad, not bad. You're really our Ziming's Little Chili now; you're not even shy around me anymore."
"Since when was I ever shy around you?" she muttered, rolling her eyes at his words.
"Where are the others?" asked Ji Ziming plainly, smiling a little when he saw that his fiancée and best friend were smack-talking each other.
"Oh, the two are still on the way. They'll be here soon!"
"Who else is coming? Senior Fu and that… Liao Gaofei?"
Because she was not very familiar with the latter, she paused a little when she mentioned his name.
"Yeah, that dumb bird is coming, too!"
Mu Heng nodded. "He just returned from overseas a while back. He said he had gotten you a pretty nice wedding present!"
"Mhm." Ji Ziming only nodded and did not comment on this.
"Wedding present? Do you guys even know when we are getting married?" the woman asked, blinking confusedly.
Even she found out about the date of her married only on her engagement honeymoon.
"Ha ha! You don't say; we're Ziming's childhood friends! This guy already notified us while you were on honeymoon and told us to get our gifts ready."
Mu Heng nodded with a smile, his expression indulgent as he looked at her.
"I gotta say that he really does care about you. This is the first time he's willing to come forward and tell us to get gifts for his beloved girlfriend."
She blushed when she heard the man's teasing. The rosiness of her face made her look especially shy.
"R-Really?" She glanced up at Ji Ziming with eyes full of smiles.
His gaze became tender when he saw the smile on her face.
As Mu Heng watched the couple regard each other lovingly, as if they were the only ones left in the world, he felt that he had just borne witness to a blatant public display of affection.
"Pfft! Okay, okay! Say; can you two tone it down a little?" He rolled his eyes in exasperation. "Every time I see your PDA, it makes me want to be in a relationship."
"Aren't you always in a relationship?" The woman pouted.
Not that she paid special attention to this Casanova, but his prowess was just well-known even in showbiz after dating one celebrity after another.
Thus, it was impossible for her not to know his relationship status.
"How can that be the same? That's for fun."
"Then, seriously find someone and get in a relationship." She rolled her eyes at the man's careless reply once more.
"I would love to do just that, but I must find someone that makes me want to get serious first." The man said in a carefree manner before yawning.
Looking at the man's nonchalance, she rolled her eyes at him for the umpteenth time.
"You're always on the frontpage of sleazy magazines and tabloids; you'll regret it once you do find the person you truly like."
"Tsk! Don't despite me. For all we know, you'll be featured on the frontpage of entertainment news, too!"
He was just making a passing comment, but little did he expect that she would… really make it to the frontpage of tabloids one day.
Plus, the male lead… was not Ji Ziming.
