1238 You can only be my woman!
"Auntie, I haven't had the chance to introduce myself yet."
Just as she was feeling confused, given that they already knew each other, the woman next to her son curled her lips up.
"It's been a while; I'm Pei Ge."
Madam Ji was stunned. For a moment, she thought that her face blindness had worsened!
"Do you know what you're saying?! This isn't funny at all!"
"I'm not joking with you. If you don't believe me, ask you son," said the other calmly, smiling at her.
She refuted it at once, but she was left with no chance of denial by her son's following words.
"Mom, she's really Pei Ge. She's my supposed wife in the first place. I just want to complete the wedding, which has been postponed for five years." He told her straightforwardly.
"What?! She's Pei Ge?!"
Qu Jingwan, who had been out of sorts, returned to herself when she heard about this.
She stared at this woman in disbelief and shock.
"Ho-How could she be her?! Isn't Pei Ge that other woman?"
She assumed that that other woman was the one this man cared about. Little did she know that she had gotten it wrong!
"Hi, Miss Qu; I am Pei Ge, the one who ran away from him five years ago."
Pei Ge smiled at her, her expression gentle, but if one looked closely, they would notice that her smile was superficial.
"H-How's this possible?!"
Her eyes bulged in shock. She did not expect that chubby woman to return as this stunning lady!
"I don't care if you're Regina or Pei Ge. In any case, I don't agree to you being with my son!"
After getting used to the news, Madam Ji's expression turned cold.
She used to like this woman for saving her precious grandson, but all her positive feelings disappeared upon learning of the latter's identity.
"You left like that without a word five years ago. There's no way you can set foot in my family again! Do you know that my family became a laughingstock across the capital because of your disappearance? Do you know what my son has done for you?!"
She looked at her with fury.
She witnessed how badly her son had been hit when this woman had disappeared back then.
Besides, her departure was so sudden and amid that scandal. It had been a shameful affair for their family.
Back then, they had become the butt of jokes in the capital.
Her departure was akin to a slap in their family's face.
The smile on Pei Ge's lips froze a little when she heard the older woman's reprimand, but she quickly returned to herself.
"I'm sorry, but I've never regretted leaving."
If she had stayed, then her mother would never have recovered, and she would never have gotten all the knowledge and power for her revenge!
The older woman was upset with her reply.
She did not expect her to come right out and say something like that.
"Son, she's saying this, and you still want to marry her?"
The man nodded evenly and tightened his grip on Pei Ge's hand.
"In this life, I'll only marry her."
Her son's reply left her at a loss for words.
"Anyway, I won't agree to her marrying into our family, nor will your father agree!"
"It doesn't matter; I'm the one marrying her—not you all."
Her son shrugged his shoulders and arched a brow in nonchalance.
With him finally locating this woman, how could he give her up because of his parents' objection?
It was not possible five years ago. Now, it was even more impossible!
His mother clenched her fists tightly as she stared intently at him.
"Who's more important: her or your father and I?"
Without hesitating, he chose Pei Ge.
His reply left his mother angry and laughing.
This was her son!
"You truly are my good son!
"You have my father, but she only has me," he explained matter-of-factly. His mother had his father to love her, while his woman only had him, no?
When she heard his explanation, she did not know how to react.
"Okay, you two; don't argue over me."
Pei Ge opened her mouth to speak when she saw that the mother and son had finally stopped arguing.
After she spoke, everyone looked at her.
"I will not marry Ji Ziming, nor will I become your family's daughter-in-law." She smiled gently at the man's mother.
"What are you saying…"
The man got anxious when he heard her words.
He did not expect her to say something like this.
"Have you forgotten my words before? If you want me to marry you, you must get your parents' approval, but now there's no way that they'll agree to it, no?"
Turning around, she smiled at him. There was an unreadable expression in her eyes.
"That's why you should let go. There's no way we can be together in this life."
"That's impossible! I won't let go of your hand! You can only be my woman!"
To everyone's surprise, another deep male voice echoed in the room following his declaration.
"Oh? I never knew that my wife could only be the woman of another man…"
