954 I wanted to sleep with him but was rejected.
"Pei Ge! Pei Ge! Is she that great?! Why are you all siding with her?! What's so great about her?! Why does she have so much love?! Why?! Why?!"
In this instant, Qiao Jingyun burst like a popped balloon. She was no longer her usually calm, smiling self.
With no trace of her elegance to be found, she was like a broken madwoman.
"What's so good about her?! In terms of family background, she pales in comparison to me! In terms of education, she's inferior as well! In terms of looks and body, she's a far cry from me, too! Why do you all want her and not me?! What potions did she feed all of you?! Ahh!"
Her words were shrill and sharp, and Fu Mingxuan moved the phone away from his ear.
"Fu Mingxuan, you cowardly b*st*rd should shut up! You clearly like her, but look at what you're doing now?"
She coldly cut him off with words full of mockery.
"You want me to marry you? What rights do you have to have me marry you? Who do you think you are? Do you think you can compare to Ji Ziming? Don't joke with me! I, Qiao Jingyun, will never settle for someone like you! Who do you think you are?! You think you're fit to marry me?!"
Her convoluted words clearly illustrated her panicky state, but as the man was in even more panicky than her, he did not catch the fluctuation in her voice.
"I'm telling you: you're dreaming! I will, and only wish to become, Ji Ziming's wife—the Ji family's young mistress, so stay away from me! Don't get in my way!" said the woman coldly after she took a deep breath to repress the quickening of her heartbeat, her anger, and her jealousy.
The man's expression turned ugly at her belittling words, and he looked downtrodden.
If even this method was useless, he really did not know how to stop her from hurting Pei Ge.
As if she did not want to hear him speak, the woman cut him off the instant he spoke.
"If you listen to what I say, I can consider not releasing your bedroom photos with her."
His face paled the instant he heard her threat.
"Qiao Jingyun, you!"
"Aiya! Don't get so upset! Don't worry; as long as you obediently listen to me, I won't release the photos, nor will I harm the woman that you love."
She laughed gently, her laughter sounding like bells ringing.
However, to the man, her laughter was like the devil's.
"You really benefited from this. Think about it; if I get together with Ji Ziming, then Pei Ge will be yours. In the end, you get what you want. The woman you love will turn to your embrace in her most vulnerable moment, no?"
"You shut up! You don't know what love is, nor are you fit to speak of it!"
After he said that, he hung up the call and collapsed tiredly in the chair.
In this instant, he hated himself for being so careless yesterday.
If not, things would not have turned out the way they did today.
That woman would have been unable to get between those two as well.
"What should I do…"
Even though she liked Pei Ge, he had let it go way back when he knew that there was only Ji Ziming in her heart.
Even if he still loved her, what he wanted more than anything else was for her to be happy.
He did not want her to become unfortunate because of his love.
Now… his hopes were about to be dashed.
He knew Qiao Jingyun well; right now, she had dirt on everyone, and she had successfully gotten into Ji Ziming's bed.
Thus… no matter what, and how he tried to stop it, Pei Ge would get hurt.
What he could do now was to reduce the damage on her… and the way to go about doing that was…
He took out his phone, stared at a phone number for a while, and then composed a text to that number.
[As long as you don't hurt Pei Ge, I'll take all your requests.]
Shortly after he sent out this message, Qiao Jingyun replied.
[Okay! Here's to us working together and getting what we want!]
After reading this message, he pressed his lips tightly together and turned off his phone without thinking.
"Pei Ge… Ji Ziming… sorry… sorry…" He muttered the two's names incessantly in apology.
The amount of pain that he was going through was no less than what Ji Ziming was going through.
Both men were going through excruciating pain, and it was all because of the same woman…
"Sister Pei Ge, where did you go last night?! I couldn't find you when I woke up!"
When she got up this morning, she could not find the man, nor did she get any call from him. Instead, Qin Qitong called her.
Thus, she was dragged to breakfast by her this morning, though the time was already closer to noon.
"Of course, I went to look for somewhere to sleep!"
She muttered as she sipped her porridge.
The girl did not pay much attention to her words. Pouting, the former started complaining about her matters to the latter.
"You have no idea how annoying Bi Zheng, that dummy, was. Yesterday… I…"
As she spoke, her voice became softer and softer, and a rare, shy expression appeared on her face.
"Mhm? What is it?"
She became a little curious when she saw the girl's shy expression.
The girl looked around, and when she saw that very few people were around, she whispered her complaints to her. "I was drunk yesterday, so I mustered up my courage to sleep with Bi Zheng. Who knew that that dummy would actually reject me?! He said that girls must be reserved! D*mn! I was so mad! I've never seen anyone as slow as him! Aiya! He'll be the death of me! The more I talk about it, the angrier I get!"
