950 Nothing happened between us last night.
The next morning, bright sun rays seeped into the room through the clear windows and thin curtains.
In deep slumber, Pei Ge's eyelids fluttered open slightly at the bright sunlight. Her long eyelashes were akin to the wings of a butterfly as they moved and revealed her watery eyes.
Her mind only cleared up after she had slept a little longer.
Feeling uncomfortable from head to toe, she furrowed her brows.
Not only was she feeling groggy from being drunk, her body was aching terribly, too.
This was especially so for her lower half…
Aye, aye, aye! Lower half?!
She widened her eyes all of a sudden. Faltering, she looked down and lifted the blanket.
It was then that she saw…
She let out a shriek. Her eyes, which were originally not fully awake, were like saucers in shock and fear.
"W-W-What on earth happened?!"
She saw herself naked.
She was in shock.
Furthermore, she froze when she saw that her body had many purple and red marks.
What on earth happened?! Why do I have all these things on my body?! Why am I naked?!
At this moment, her brain seemed to coagulate and become a pot of glue as she was at a loss on what to do.
"Pei Ge, think about it; don't panic! Think about what happened last night…"
She took a deep breath and tried to calm her nerves.
She furrowed her brows in deep thought.
"Last night, I went drinking with Qin Qitong and Lily… Afterward, I went looking for Ziming…"
Slowly, as she recollected, the memories from last night became clearer.
Probably because she was too scared and nervous, despite her memory being unclear and disjointed, she could still recall what had happened last night.
"Afterwards… I found Ziming, then…"
In that moment, the scenes from last night appeared in her head instantly.
Those pants and moans… as well as the muscular and sexy body… and that…
Her cheeks flushed red as she gulped. It was as if boiling water had splashed on her body.
"S-So… I d-did it with that annoying fellow?!"
She widened her eyes as she thought of it.
Then! These scary marks of my body were caused by him?
Anyway… where is the man who 'ate' me up?
Pei Ge, who was originally terrified, put on a bright smile and glowed in happiness as she recalled what had happened last night.
"Ziming, are you here?"
At this moment, the man whom she was looking for was in another guest room…
"…What on earth actually happened?"
The man's brows furrowed when he saw a naked Qiao Jingyun lying beside him.
"What are you doing here?"
Seeing the naked woman beside him, as well as the amorous red and purple marks on her, he subconsciously thought of his fiancée.
He knew he did it with a woman last night, but he thought that the woman was Pei Ge!
He clearly heard her voice and saw her walk to his side…
Qiao Jingyun, whose eyes were originally shut, opened them when she heard his voice.
Half-awake, she looked at him with a lost expression.
"Last night…" All of a sudden, he did not know how to continue.
It seemed that women were at a disadvantage when it came down to situations like this.
After hearing his words, she immediately woke up.
"Nothing happened between us last night!"
She stared at him with wide, round eyes, in all seriousness.
Hearing her response, the man was slightly stunned.
Seeing that he seemed to have misunderstood her words, she quickly clarified. "Ziming, I know that the one you love is Ge Ge and not me. L-Last night was an accident. I know that you didn't want it to happen either, so… so you can pretend that nothing happened last night and it was just a dream."
As she said this, she wrapped herself tightly in the blanket and slowly got off the bed.
Seeing her cautious behavior, he lifted the blanket. The moment he saw the mess on the bed, he shuddered.
The fresh blood on the bed seemed to hint at something. He must admit that he and Qiao Jingyun had done it last night! Also… it was very intense…
His lips pursed into a straight line at the sight of the blood stain on the bed.
A complicated look flashed in his cold eyes.
Lifting his head, his vision shifted to her who had already worn her clothes.
After a moment's silence, all the words that he wanted to say were reduced to an apology.
However, he did not know what else to say to this woman except for sorry.
Although this might be her first time, he did not love her. The person whom he loved was Pei Ge, and he would soon marry this woman he loved.
Therefore, he could not take responsibility for her…
"Yes, yes!" Qiao Jingyun shook her head and looked at him with a smile.
"Ziming, I don't need you to apologize to me. I know that it wasn't your choice last night, though I don't know what happened and why things turned out this way…"
As she spoke, she lost her smile and started sobbing.
Unabated, crystal-like teardrops fell from her big eyes.
Although she was crying, her face was full of smiles.
"I-I liked you. From the moment I met you, from the moment I saved you, I have been in love with you, but I know that I'm not the one you like. I know that you like Ge Ge, so I gave up…"
