957 The great CEO ran away after he bedded her.
"Sister Pei Ge, what are you thinking about that you're so engrossed?"
Qin Qitong shook her hand doubtfully when she saw that the other was out of it.
"En, nothing," replied Pei Ge as she shook her head to dislodge her thoughts.
"Really? You seem to have a lot on your mind, though." The girl worriedly blinked at her.
"Huh? It's really nothing. I was just wondering if Ziming is busy with work."
Otherwise, why would there be no sign of him? she muttered to herself.
"Eh? You don't know where cousin is?"
Seeing that her brows were knitted together in thought, the girl blinked confusedly.
"Haven't you two been together these two days? How come you don't know where cousin is?"
Hearing this question, Pei Ge was at a loss on how to explain things.
In the end, she just smiled without saying anything.
"Maybe cousin has something urgent to deal with."
"Mhm." She nodded a little worriedly, her expression still a little conflicted.
For some reason, even though she should be happy that their relationship had reached a new stage of intimacy, she felt uneasy.
Her feeling of uneasiness intensified with the man's disappearance…
As she was talking to this girl about the man, her phone suddenly rang.
When her phone rang, she excitedly picked it up, only to see a message from Ji Ziming.
"Sister Pei Ge, from the way you're smiling at the phone, my cousin must've messaged you," teased Qin Qitong when she saw the smile on her face.
Seeing how blissful the woman was, she felt somewhat envious.
She was envious of how Pei Ge could successful marry the man she loved and loved her back.
Unlike her and Bi Zheng, they were already together, but…
As she was thinking of this, she saw the woman's expression change.
The bliss and smile on her face seemed to have dimmed the moment she read the message.
"Sister Pei Ge, what's wrong?" She grabbed the woman's wrist nervously.
"N-Nothing," replied the latter with a shake of her head.
Nonetheless, she felt that something was off judging from the other's reaction.
"You must be lying to me."
As she spoke, she grabbed the latter's phone.
"'I'm on a business trip'? 'I'm on a business trip'?! Cousin's on a business trip? He went on a business trip after sleeping with you?!"
She freaked out when she saw this message. She was not the protagonist, but her reaction was more fitting than the other.
Pei Ge's expression dimmed even further when she heard the girl's words.
She really did not know what to say.
Even though she knew that Qin Qitong's reaction was out of concern for her, this was still a little too much!
Thankfully, there were few people around, or that would be really embarrassing.
"Sister Pei Ge, cousin's too much!"
The girl lowered her voice according to her warning, but her tone was still rather agitated.
"It's not that bad. Your cousin's not an idle person; he must really be busy," she said, taking her phone back from the girl.
This message made her feel a little uncomfortable. After all, they did that last night. The man upping and leaving without a word this morning was just too much.
However, after reminding herself that he was a CEO with lots of decisions to make and that it was not easy for him to take time off work for her, she told herself not to ask for too much.
"What's he so busy with? You two are getting married soon, yet he's still…" Qin Qitong grumbled nonstop, feeling indignant on her behalf. "Cousin is usually quite nice to you, but the more I look at this message, the more uncomfortable I feel…"
The girl's comment made her pause, and doubt rose in her heart suddenly.
That annoying fellow rarely sent her a message; he would usually call whenever he could.
Even if he did message her, it would not be something so awkward and formal…
Just as her thoughts were preoccupied with the man's message, a sweet and seductive voice rang near her.
"Morning, Ge Ge, Qitong."
When she raised her head, she saw Qiao Jingyun standing before her.
She was still wearing her coat from yesterday, but her clothes underneath had become a man's shirt.
For some reason, she felt that the shirt looked familiar.
"He he! Qiao Jingyun, why are you still here? Don't you know that the Ji family or anyone else doesn't welcome you?"
When facing this woman, Qin Qitong would always turn into a fierce lady.
She gave off this quarrelsome vibe as if she were ready for combat at any time.
"Oh, really? I really didn't know that," countered the woman while smiling at her.
The girl pouted when she saw how unaffected the woman was.
Qiao Jingyun did not place further attention to the girl; instead, she looked at Pei Ge.
"Ge Ge, did you sleep well last night?"
"En, pretty well."
She replied with a nod and a bright smile, despite being unsure of this woman's intentions for asking that.
"Really? So did I."
As she spoke, her face turned crimson. As she looked down, she unintentionally or otherwise revealed her parts of her collarbones under the shirt.
The hickeys in those places were glaring to the eyes of the other two women.
