1093 Why are you sending her away?
"Ah? Are you really coming over? It's good if you come over so that you can help me dissuade Ge Ge. This stubborn mule, you don't know how annoying she is! She wants to move to Cambridge just because of the appearance of Ji Ziming here! Really, she doesn't even know how to take care of her body!"
Tang Xiaoyu's words were spilling over the phone.
Gu Zhengrong could hear a gentle and clear voice refuting her nagging.
Listening to that gentle and clear voice, he took a deep breath and became more certain of his decision.
"Stay there with Pei Ge; I'll come shortly."
After saying that, he hung up and quickly walked over to his car. He sat down in the driver's seat and headed to the place where the two women were eating.
Along the way, many thoughts ran through his head, but at the same time, it felt as if he were not thinking about anything at all.
He soon arrived at Chinatown.
"Yo. Let me tell you. Once Zhengrong arrives, I'll complain to him about you. Look at yourself; you're perfectly fine staying here, but you still insist on moving!"
Inside a private room, Tang Xiaoyu drank a special concoction of cocktail as she grumbled to Pei Ge.
"Although both are in the US, there's still a distance between Cambridge and New York. Since our works are here, we can't always visit you there. If something happens to you—"
She was cut off before she could finish speaking.
"Alright, alright! Stop cursing," interjected the other woman softly but firmly as she rolled her eyes at her.
"Anyways, regardless of your thoughts, my mind is made up to move over there, so save your breath in trying to dissuade me. Even if your boyfriend or anyone else comes over, I won't change my mind."
What these two ladies did not expect was for the man not to veto this decision but support it, instead.
This place had fiery red décor, which embodied the Chinese aura.
Although these women were here to have sour fish soup, they, too, ordered hotpot.
Gu lu, gu lu!
The red and milky-white soup in the hotpot kept boiling.
The two foodies cooked their dishes while they waited for the man to arrive.
Thus, once he entered the private room, he saw the two perspiring from eating hotpot.
"Wow! You're finally here!"
Seeing him appear, Tang Xiaoyu quickly put down her chopsticks, stood up, and walked over to him.
"You must have not eaten yet. Sit down quickly and eat with us!"
As she said that, the woman picked up the chopsticks set at the side and passed them to the man.
She also poured soup in a bowl and scooped some rice for him.
Seeing her best friend acting like a virtuous wife and mother, Pei Ge smilingly rolled her eyes before teasing the man.
"Aw, aw, aw! This is the typical case of boys before pals! Look! Tsk, tsk, tsk! I don't even have such a treatment! Zhengrong, I really envy you!"
Hearing the woman's affectionate teasing, the man could not enjoy it.
Hence, he put the chopsticks his girlfriend had given him back on the table.
He then shot Pei Ge a serious look.
"I heard that you're planning to move to Cambridge."
Seeing his serious look, she subconsciously got serious as well.
"Yes, I am."
"Alright. When are you intending to move?" He nodded at that and softly inquired.
"I'm thinking of… moving next morning. Prof. William has arranged the accommodation for me long ago. I'll be living in an apartment near Harvard University."
Seeing that the man seemed not to be disapproving of her decision, she broke into a light smile.
"Actually, it's not just because of… Ji Ziming that I'm moving."
She paused slightly when she mentioned that person.
"I've spoken to the professor long before; I feel that I'm more suited to live in that city."
This time around, when she saw that man again, her determination to study was reinforced.
"Alright. If that's what you want, then move."
Gu Zhengrong nodded in agreement.
"I'll send someone to bring you there tomorrow morning."
Before she could thank him, Tang Xiaoyu started making noises.
"What are you doing?! How could you agree for her to move to Cambridge?! She's currently pregnant! How will she manage to get by without our care and concern?"
Her words, unfortunately, did not elicit any response from her boyfriend.
"Rest early tonight; just pack a few things. With regard to other things, they'll be prepared for you."
His gentle eyes were filled with reluctance and worry.
"Don't worry; if you move to that city, Xiaoyu and I may…" He paused, his voice sounding disappointed. "We may be unable to visit you often."
At that, Pei Ge unsuspectingly shook her head in amusement.
"I know. I say, we're all in the same country; is there a need to make it feel as if this is a matter of life and death?"
Tang Xiaoyu initially did not notice anything amiss but did so once she heard her best friend's teasing.
However, despite the numerous questions she had in her mind, she did not ask him any of those while in front of her friend.
Only after they had finished their meal and sent the other woman back did she ask him from her position in the passenger seat.
"What… did you mean earlier?"
She understood that this man loved Pei Ge more than anyone else. Why, then, did he send the woman away easily?
Something must be going on!
