1006 Can... I trust you?

"Ji Ziming, I've told you before that I don't need your apology."

In that split second, the sweet atmosphere between the two turned bad.

"…What do you want me to do, then?"

The man stared unblinkingly at Pei Ge after he was pushed away by her.

"Hoo!" She expended a heavy breath when she saw his unflinching gaze on her. "I don't know."

That was right. She did not know. She did not know what to do with him and what she should do with their relationship.

Her mind was in a jumbled mess right now.

She felt that horrible things were swamping her at once.

Only God knew how happy and blissful she was not too long ago…

"Are you all right?"

The bitterness on face only caused the man to be sure that something was off with her.

"Nothing. Let's head back."

It was obvious that she did not want to elaborate.

She walked past him and went to the passenger seat.

Opening the car door, she sat down in the seat.

Soon, the man was also sitting in the driver's seat.

In the driver's seat, he looked at the woman beside him and saw no expression on her face. It seemed that she did not wish to speak to him. His brows furrowed tightly at this.

As someone who was not good at talking, he did not know what to say; thus, the two of them just kept quiet and did not say a word as they headed to the capital's main hospital.

When the car stopped, she moved to get out of the car but was surprised to find that… the car door would not open.

"Ji Ziming!"

At this point, she realized that the man had locked her inside.

She stared furiously at him.

"Pei Ge, what on earth is wrong with you? Is it because I wasn't by your side at this time?"

He removed his safety belt, turned around, and looked at her earnestly.

"If it's because of that, I guarantee that it will never happen again."

"Heh! You guarantee it? Is there any use to your guarantee? It's obvious that there's none!" She scoffed at him with chilly eyes. "After you've gone missing before, you told me that there won't be a next time, but where were you these past few days in the end? Didn't you disappear again without notice?"

All the guarantees that there would be no next time and it would not happen again were all lies. Why did she not see through his lies before?

"I'm sorry; it's really my fault this time, but the company—"

She quickly interrupted him before he could finish.

"The company! The company! The company! Are you really truly busy with company matters?"

The moment he mentioned that, she immediately thought of him and Qiao Jingyun walking together at the hospital.

"Pei Ge…"

The man looked perplexedly at her, appearing to be at a loss.

"I'm sorry; I'm slightly tired today. Open the door as I want to visit my mother."

Realizing that she had overreacted, she took a deep breath and suppressed her anger.


The man nodded and opened the car door.

Once the door was opened, she left without looking at the man.

Seeing her receding back, the man frowned in stun. Almost immediately, he went after her.

Just like this, neither the one in front and the other at the back initiated a conversation and simply walked along the hospital corridor in silence.

"Ji Ziming, please head back first; I need some time alone."

She only spoke when they arrived at Zhang Manhua's ward.

The man pursed his lips into a straight line at her words.

"You're angry." He held her hand gently.

"I'm not." She shook off his hand.

"You are."

He once more stubbornly captured her hand in his.

This time around, she could not break free from his grip.

She took a deep breath and looked sternly at the man.

"Is there a difference between me being angry or not? The key is what you've done, isn't it?"

Her words made him became flustered for no reason.

Anxiety quickly gripped his heart.

"Pei Ge, what have I done wrong? I can change."

For the first time in his life, Ji Ziming pathetically begged someone.

This high-and-mighty man appeared to be a loser in love as he groveled pathetically.

Seeing him like this, the woman was slightly stunned. Her heart immediately softened up as she was not cold-hearted to begin with.

For a split moment, she wanted to believe him again.

Perhaps, there was a misunderstanding here or she had been overthinking it. Maybe, her cousin had lied to her. Maybe…

Her defenses crumbled at once because of his simple act of pleading.

"Ziming… can I trust you?"

She looked at him with tears in her eyes.

Although it was a question that was filled with uncertainty and required an answer, her heart seemed to have already gotten the answer she wanted.

I can trust you, right?

"Of course, you can."

Holding her hand, the man pulled her into his embrace.

He dipped his head and lightly planted a kiss on her forehead.

"You're my wife; of course, you can choose to believe in me…"

This statement made her gain some confidence. Her withered heart seemed to have been resuscitated, and in that moment, she was filled with courage.

The courage to clarify everything.

"Why are you—" With Qiao Jingyun this afternoon?

However, before she could voice out her question, a doctor in a white robe walked toward them.

"Are you two the family of the patient in V1 ward? I've been looking for you this whole afternoon…"
