Provocative Fiery Wife: My Superior Is A Affectionate Spitfire Chapter 276
"Actually…" Pei Ge raised her head and looked at him without blinking. "I'm happy to be your female companion."
Once she spoke these words, she felt the office become warmer by a lot. Lifting her eyes to look at Ji Ziming, she found his expression to be softer and… kinder?
"However." The room's temperature seemed to become a few degrees colder when she continued speaking. "I don't think I'm suitable to be your female companion."
She felt chills ran down her spine after saying this.
Aiyo, I'll be damned! Why do I feel that this annoying person's gaze is so frightening?
"Your suitability is for me to decide," he said indifferently while looking at her.
Still, there was a hint of displeasure in his voice.
"Oh." She actually did not want to attend any banquet with him, but she knew that this was not the right time for honesty. Otherwise, if looks could kill, she would be dead by now.
"Alright, you head out." He shifted his gaze away from her and toward the documents on the desk.
"Oh." She sighed in relief when he released her.
Just as she turned for the door, he suddenly called out to her, "Wait!"
She halted her footsteps at his call.
"Is there something else, CEO Ji?" she asked with a polite smile.
Her fake smile made Ji Ziming frown.
"Your smile is too ugly."
"…" Damn! The veins in her forehead felt like they were going to explode.
Her smile was thus replaced by a grimace. "Do you have other instructions for me, CEO Ji?"
Hmph, hmph, hmph! Didn't you say that my smile is ugly?! Let's see what else you have to say about my face!
"Brew me a cup of coffee," he replied calmly.
"Oh." She nodded and then went to the pantry within the CEO's office.
She had been to the CEO's pantry before. How could she not have been there when she was his secretary?
She was inexperienced in brewing coffee, though, so this particular task was often delegated to the other three secretaries. All in all, she had never brewed coffee for Ji Ziming before.
The pantry had wooden furnishings and white walls. She opened all the cabinets with unfamiliarity and eventually located what she needed.
She blinked at the coffee machine and, after a long time of poking around, eventually figured out how to operate it.
She really felt like she was going crazy when she saw the coffee beans.
"How to brew these?! Boil them?" She eyed the coffee beans helplessly.
Staring at the container of coffee beans for a while, she decided to find other types of coffee that were easier to brew.
She rummaged through the cabinets and drawers and eventually located a pouch of coffee in the last drawer.
"Found one at last!" She excitedly grabbed the small bag of coffee and poured it into the machine.
Di, di, di! After pressing the button, the coffee machine rumbled to life.
Soon, a strong aroma of coffee wafted from the coffee machine.
"Mhm! It seems okay!" She was satisfied with the appearance of the dark brown coffee.
Once she poured the coffee into a white cup, she thought that it somewhat looked strange.
"It looks like Chinese medicine…" She blinked and then eyed the white sugar and milk at a corner.
"Adding a bit of milk and sugar will be nicer!"
She added many cubes of sugar and some milk into the medium-size cup.
Only when the cup was filled to the brim and about to overflow did she stop her actions.
"Okay! Big success! It should taste fantastic!" She gazed smugly at the light brown coffee and brought it outside.
Since the coffee cup was full, she walked very carefully.
As a result, her steps were especially muffled when she headed to Ji Ziming's desk.
Naturally, the man did not notice her enter the room.
It was only when his nose caught a whiff of the weird-smelling coffee that he noticed her presence.
Despite getting alerted, he still jumped in surprise at her sudden appearance.
"Why don't you make any sound when you walk?" Watching her overly cautious steps, he found it funny.
"No choice; the cup is full," she answered, feeling depressed. She regretted it immediately after bringing the cup out.
I should've poured less coffee.
He frowned when he heard her reply.
Drinking coffee was an elegant matter, so the cup needed not be filled with it. Pei Ge's methods…
Once the cup was safely served to him, his mind blanked out.
"What is this?" His heart skipped a beat at the sight of the light brown coffee.
"Coffee!" She looked at him with puzzlement. "CEO Ji, you said you want to drink coffee, so I naturally brewed coffee for you."
"Then, tell me why this has such a color." Suddenly, he remembered that other time he had coffee with her.
Don't tell me…
"Of course, it's sugar and milk! Hurry up and drink it! It won't taste nice once it cools down."
His mouth twitched. He looked at the woman's happy smile and felt that, perhaps, she was playing him.
"I never add sugar and milk to my coffee. I only drink black coffee. Don't you know of this?" He took a deep breath and asked this while eyeing the light brown coffee.
