1216 There, there. Be obedient, my prisoner.
"You're shy? Aren't… you the mother of two kids?"
Hearing this nearly flirty murmur to her ear, Pei Ge's face turned beet red.
Her heart beat wildly in tandem.
For a split second, she doubted if the man standing behind her was really Ji Ziming.
That was because he behaved so outlandishly, which was a far cry from the man she knew!
When did he learn to flirt?!
"Mr. Ji, please show some respect."
Taking a deep breath, she tried to block the shameless couple out there.
"Respect? Did I do anything disrespectful?"
She was rendered speechless by his words.
Sh*t! Is the one standing behind me truly Ji Ziming? Where has his morals gone?!
"Your present behavior is inconveniencing me. Besides… you don't appear respectful at all."
She took another deep breath to calm herself down but did not expect the man push it even further.
"I'm not doing this, or am I doing this? How am I inconveniencing or disrespecting you?"
As he spoke, his hand reached for her hip and then her chest…
She could feel the coolness of the man's hand through her clothes.
In an instant, she felt electricity course through where the man had touched.
She covered her chest instinctively, her face turning redder.
"Really? I'm merely demonstrating to you what is considered inconvenient and disrespectful."
He dipped his head and gave her ear a peck.
Pop! At once, her mind went blank.
She did not expect him to do something so frivolous!
She struggled to find the right words.
"What's wrong with me?"
"Ji Ziming, you pervert!"
She turned around, glaring at the man.
She did not know, though, that this only made her look more seductive and alluring.
The man curled his lips and gazed intently at her.
It was as if he were ready to take things even further.
"…No! You're not! Can you let go of me first?"
Feeling threatened, she took back her words and glared at the man gloomily with a bright red face.
"What to do? I don't feel like letting go…"
He wrapped his arms around her tightly.
It was forceful, as if he were trying to fuse her into his body.
"I don't want to let go of you—not at all…"
The man rested his chin on her shoulder as he muttered this next to her ear. He looked like a lost child, which could make one's heart ache a little.
She was stunned to hear these words and feel his helplessness, but she quickly recovered herself.
"Are you ill? I'm not your girlfriend, nor am I your fiancée."
The little bit of gentleness that she had disappeared when she thought of those two women.
She laughed coldly and tried to push him away from her.
Her attitude had probably infuriated the man, for he—
"You *ssh*l*, let me go!"
Pei Ge could not believe the man. She did not expect him to tie her up! Without giving her a chance to fight back, he tied her up!
"Be quiet; you're my prisoner now."
Ji Ziming squatted, a small smile on his face.
He seemed to be in a good mood.
"Untie this! You *ssh*l*, let me go!" She exploded.
Disregarding her image, she yelled at the man.
What she did not expect was for him to be unfazed by her shout and to carry her in his arms, instead.
As he spoke, the man patted her on the butt.
She was overcome with shame that she thought of dying.
"Get lost, you pervert!"
By the time he carried her out from behind the tree, Shen Liangjia and the girl had already disappeared.
Judging by the empty surroundings and clear air, it was clear that the shameless couple had left a while back.
"Let go of me! Let go!"
Along the way, no matter how she struggled, he remained firm.
She was hoping for them to run in those two women of his, but she likely had bad luck or the two women got ambushed by others, for despite her calls, she never saw either woman, nor did she see anyone else.
Pei Ge only realized then that Ji Ziming had not taken the demarcated paths.
"Where are you taking me?!"
She had an ominous feeling.
Even though this feeling assailed her several times today, this was the only time she had truly felt threatened!
"Of course, I'm bringing you to my territory, my prisoner," the man replied plainly.
"What?! What 'your territory'? Besides, the road you're taking isn't on the map! Quickly walk me back! I don't want to be lost!"
"Heh… Don't you know that I'm this private lodge's owner?"
What?! This lodge belonged to him? Where was he bringing her, then, and what did he want to do with her?!
