1504 If you cannot wear one set a day, then wear two sets in a day.
"It's He Yun calling about the company's matter. Continue sleeping." Ji Ziming hugged his woman as he closed his eyes slightly and thought of the person behind Huang Zhian.
Upon hearing that it was about company matters, Pei Ge felt relieved and went back to sleep. By the time she woke up, the man was already dressed in his suit and was sitting right by her side.
The clock in the room showed that it was already past 10 A.M. She had completely forgotten that there was still a shareholder's meeting at Red Star today, and all the more, she had to attend it as the legal representative. However, the man had too much 'valor' last night, so her head was still fuzzy right now and the lower part of her body hurt so much that she could not get up.
"Are you going to Red Star now?" She wrapped herself in the blanket and lay flat on her stomach as she asked the man this.
"Mhm, but I'm waiting for you to wake up." The man nodded, and as he saw her arms, which were outside the blanket, all of last night's activity surfaced in his mind.
"What are you doing?" The woman looked warily at him as he reached out for her. She quickly hid her arm under the blanket and left only her head exposed.
"What's wrong? We just did it last night, and now you're disowning me?" He narrowed his eyes at her. He had long seen through what she was planning. What was the use of hiding from him when he had seen every part of her body?
"You…" Pei Ge was infuriated but could not come up with a word to refute his words. In the end, she could only chide him. "It's all your fault; get out! I'm getting up to change."
"What if I say I'm not leaving?" Ji Ziming began to behave mischievously as his gaze on her became intense.
"You… Alright, alright, alright! If you're not leaving, then I'll change under the blanket."
'To counter soldiers with arms and water with an earth weir,' it was not the first time she had changed under the blankets.
"Come out and change; I'll leave. I got Auntie Zhang to prepare some breakfast for you." The man finally relented.
"Why am I still having breakfast at this time? It's almost time for lunch, alright?" She rolled her eyes, and if it were not for him torturing her last night for so long, she would not be sleeping until this late. Her biological clock had always been on time, yet she actually woke up late today.
"It's not good to go with an empty stomach. Since you're awake, I'll go out for you to change your clothes." He stood up and looked down at her. His beautiful, thin lips moved. "Those existing shareholders are already waiting for us."
"I know; I'll try to hurry up. Don't get Auntie Zhang to prepare food. We can have lunch right after the meeting."
"The meeting will take some time, and since you're my woman, you must listen to me." His eyes swept across her, and she stopped talking. Since her resistance would be of no use, she might as well listen to him.
Walking out of her room, Ji Ziming saw Qu Jingwan, who was sitting on the sofa. Although she was wearing a pink, long dress, the most eye-catching was still her scarlet lips. The lady was honestly beautiful, curvaceous, educated, and better at pleasing men than Pei Ge. She was the perfect lover.
However, he simply was not short of such women. It was the case in the past, now, and in the future. He only loved Pei Ge, and no matter how times changed, his heart would always only beat for her.
Since this lady wanted to stay in his family so badly and was even cracking her brains on how to join his company, he decided to let her enter it, given how much effort she had put in trying to get in.
After Pei Ge changed her clothes and left her room, she looked at the man, who was leaning on the railings, and said, "We can leave; I'm done."
Ji Ziming turned around and saw her in a beige, casual wear. Her clothes were the newest arrivals from Gucci's early spring collection, but he did not remember buying these for her. "These clothes?"
"Oh, it's Gucci's team that sent these yesterday, and I placed them in my room."
"Why don't you wear what I bought for you?" He frowned and was upset that she accepted clothes sent by others. As long as she wore clothes not bought by him, he would think that they looked ugly.
"You gave me too many clothes, and even if I wear one set a day, I can't finish wearing them. These clothes are new arrivals, and Gucci's team—"
"If you can't finish wearing one set a day, then wear two sets in a day."
Pei Ge was stunned; she did not expect him to be jealous over clothes.
"If you can't finish wearing two sets in a day, then wear three sets in a day. There's definitely a way to wear everything."
"Then, am I here to wear my clothes or show them off?" She carried her bag and was about to head downstairs when she was pulled by him. "You're my woman; shouldn't I have a say in what you wear?"
In the living room on the first floor, although Qu Jingwan did not look in the direction of the staircase, she heard all that was going on upstairs.
"Alright. I'll wear two sets in a day, and if I really can't finish wearing them all, I'll give them away, alright?"
"The clothes are bought for you; you can't give them away!" he said authoritatively. Pei Ge stopped arguing with him because she knew that it was pointless no matter what she said. He would always use a new excuse to voice his unhappiness.
"Alright. I know." She was not angry because of this; in fact, she thought that the man was quite adorable for acting like this.
"Mhm." Upon receiving her agreement, Ji Ziming let out a sigh of relief and supported her down the stairs.
As they walked past the living room, she shot a glance at Qu Jingwan, who was sitting on the sofa. Neither did they greet each other nor was there eye-contact. THe lady appeared as if she did not notice them passing by her. She typed furiously on her laptop, appearing very busy and not wishing to be bothered.
In the car, Pei Ge mentioned this to the man, but the latter only smiled when he heard it and told her what happened yesterday. After listening to him, she felt that it was not so easy to deal with that lady; she probably had some ulterior motives for staying in the Ji family.
"I had someone check her background, and there should be a result in a few days' time."
"Isn't she the eldest mistress of the Qu family? Why do you still want to investigate it?" Pei Ge was baffled. As the eldest mistress of the Qu family, their only motive should be to marry her into the Ji family and become in-laws with them. With that, they would have a high standing in the capital, and nobody would dare to bully them.
"I'm afraid that it isn't so simple. My man told me that, before she came to my family, she once gave all her savings to a cousin called Qu Qingyu."
"Cousin?" She searched her memories but could not find this particular piece of information.
"You know him?" asked the man as he drove his black Lincoln.
"I don't." She shook her head.
