Provocative Fiery Wife: My Superior is a Affectionate Spitfire|
Chapter 1632 - Threaten
“Then, where is the car now?”
“It will be here in another five minutes.”
Ji Ziming raised his hand to look at the time. As expected, it would reach the Ji Group in five minutes. He Yun had already sent the specific location to the person driving the car over.
Pei Ge was slightly surprised, yet she did not know what was strange about it.
“Mhm. It’s already considered slow.”
He looked at her and squinted, saying in an enchanting voice, “The time was just right when I met you.”
“Here you go again.”
She shyly scolded him as she peeked at him, only to find that he looked even gentler and more affectionate than any other time. In that instant, it felt as though a string deep inside her heart had snapped. In this small space, she could only see her reflection in his deep eyes.
“We’re here. Let’s go.”
Just as she moved to speak, the elevator doors opened with a ding!
He stepped out of the elevator first, leaving a handsome and straight back view for her. Behind him, Pei Ge softly muttered, “What even. Seriously.”
Ji Ziming’s lips uncontrollably lifted at the corners. His little woman was getting more interesting by the day.
Soon after they reached the CEO’s office, the phone on the table rang. The man picked it up casually, only to find out that it was a call from Ellie expressing her gratitude. His dark eyes darkened instantly; his voice then became cool too as he emitted an impassive feeling.
“If you think that the company’s phone is for you to settle personal matters, then you no longer need to work here in the Ji Group. I can now approve your resignation.”
Knowing that he would be of this attitude, Ellie did not get angry. She merely acknowledged her mistake and hung up the call. In comparison to the joy in her heart earlier, she felt that even the almost-dead lotus on the window sill was more alive and fragrant.
She liked anything he sent, be it flowers or cars.
Because it was him—because she secretly admired and loved him.
However, at this moment, the man did not think the same way while sitting in his office. He knew that with Ellie’s personality, she would think something of the car. He had already informed her in advance that it was Pei Ge’s idea and had nothing to do with him, yet when that general manager’s call still arrived, he realized that he had still underestimated a woman’s imagination.
Pei Ge sat on the sofa as she watched him frown, then chuckled. “What’s wrong? Is it a bad thing that Ellie is thanking you?”
She knew that he was simply trying to do something good yet was given the title of a good man unknowingly. She even knew that he had gifted the car to the woman under her name. The reason she chose to remain mum about it was that she merely wanted to protect this man who treasures his employees.
As long as it was right, she did not care which woman he gifted presents to or brought out for a meal.
As a leader in a company, she herself knew the importance and rarity of having a capable employee.
“You can still laugh?”
His eyes turned cold as he regarded the woman in a white business suit. He felt that she was caring more and more about the company.
“What’s wrong? Can’t I laugh? Then, should I be crying now, instead?”
She crossed her legs. Her slender and nicely shaped limbs were another form of enticement for the man, but she did not even realize that her movements had become tinged in pink bubbles in the man’s eyes.
She retrieved a file from the coffee table, but before she could flip through two pages of it, the man already strode over in a mere few steps and snatched it away.
His expression was cold as his large, fair hand waved in front of her eyes. He looked down at her and said in a teasing voice, “Cry for me.”
She subconsciously reached out to grab for the document he had taken away but failed.
Suspecting that she had heard wrongly, she widened her beautiful doe eyes at the man. The confusion in her eyes was apparent to him. “You didn’t hear anything wrong. Cry for me to see.”
The smile on his lips gave her an eerie feeling. This was totally different from the sweet and loving tone of his in the elevator previously.
She pouted and scolded, not trying to grab the file in his hand anymore. Instead, she picked up another from the coffee table. When she saw that it was the name of her company, she suddenly had an ominous feeling.
There was still no news regarding the person she was suspecting. Although Ji Ziming had already supported her act of digging out the background of that person, she still had not received any reply from her subordinates.
“The document I am holding is regarding that person. Do you want to look?”
The ruminating expression on his face became even stronger. He just wanted to see her try to snatch it from him yet failed at it.
“You! Hurry and give it to me!”
She uncrossed her legs and stood up. In her high heels, she took a misstep and started falling backward. Nervous, she closed her eyes yet fell into a gentle embrace.
Her moist eyes abruptly opened and met with the man’s deep ones as though he had been awaiting her awakening.
“Did you get hurt?”
His voice was hurried as he looked at her with a light frown.
“I… I didn’t.”
She could feel her heart thumping as she looked at him from this proximity. How could she possibly resist his attractiveness? Just one look at him was enough for her to have an urge to spend her lifetime with him.
“It’s good that you aren’t.”
His smile unconsciously became even more apparent when he spotted the blush on her cheeks. His right hand tightened around her slim waist as he brought his left hand up to caress gently the side of her cheek. His gentle fingers slowly slid down her skin. It felt as though a fire trailed behind the path his fingers touched.
The feeling she felt was so strong that it was almost uncontrollable.
Suddenly, the man frowned and quickly stood up, saying in a low voice, “Hurry and look at your document. This person is it, and now they left your company.”
The moment she heard this, Pei Ge no longer dared to space out on the sofa. She quickly stood up and picked up the document he had discarded to the floor while in a panic to catch her from falling just then.
The moment she flipped it open, it was the family background of the HR manager. The manager was called Ji Miao who had a twin.
