“Sis Pei Ge, Sis Pei Ge, what are you thinking about? You’re spacing out.”
She only returned her senses after the driver called her several times.
Only then did she realize that, unbeknown to her, the car had arrived before the company’s entrance.
“Ah, we’re here already,” she mumbled, still a little out of it.
“Yes, Sis Pei Ge. I’ve been calling you multiple times.” The young man looked at her with a teasing smile. “What were you thinking so deeply about? I think you’ve been lost in thought all the way here.”
“It’s nothing,” She smiled but said nothing. Bidding the driver goodbye, she stepped out of the car.
“I’ll get going now. Bye.”
“Okay. I’ll come pick you up when you get off work later.”
She felt burning gazes on her the moment she got out of his car.
The burning gazes, on top of her gloomy mood, frustrated her.
It’s all that annoying fellow’s fault!
Her mood somewhat improved after she cursed the man mentally.
The doors to the elevator opened, and she stepped under dozens of people’s watchful gazes.
Clearly, with a lot of people in the elevator, there was not a lot of space available, but a gap around her was present when she got in it.
This made her feel as if she were some kind of bacteria people wanted to stay far away from.
“…” She pursed her lips but kept quiet.
Watching the employees exit the elevator one after another until she was the only one left inside, only then did she feel that the ambiance was less oppressive.
She stepped out of it and slowly walked to the CEO Secretariat.
Pei Ge, you got this. Ignore the others’ looks and what they think! You got this!
Although she spent all her time working this morning, most of her thoughts were still on Ji Ziming.
Because he left without a word, she would get distracted wondering if something had happened to him. Otherwise, why did she not get even one phone call or text from him?
“Pei Ge, do you have something on your mind? You look as if something is weighing down on you.”
Pan Xinlei asked her that during their usual lunch together.
“Yeah, Sister Pei Ge. You look a little haggard today. Did you not sleep well yesterday?” Qin Qitong, who was sitting at the side, nodded in agreement.
She was touched by their concern for her, but she was too shy to share her worry to them.
This was because… She found it difficult to open up regarding such things to them.
Having learned that Ji Ziming had an ex-girlfriend that he liked, she felt this strong need to mask her feelings for him.
“Nothing. I just had nightmares last night.”
Chatting for a while, Pan Xinlei went back to take a power nap, and Qin Qitong left after taking a call.
As such, she decided to take a walk to digest her food.
What she did not expect was that this walk, which was supposed to improve her bad mood, only made her feel worse.
“What is so good about that Pei Ge? She has no figure, is not pretty, and is not even especially intelligent; how else would she have graduated from some lousy university only?”
On her way back to the office after taking a stroll at a pathway with lush greenery on both sides, she heard an unfamiliar voice mention her name.
Although she did not know who it was, she subconsciously slowed down her steps.
“Yeah! I don’t get it, either. Such a lousy woman like her can get her hands on our great CEO. This doesn’t make sense at all. It’s so aggravating!”
“Hey, hey, hey! Didn’t you all see that mailed exposé? That woman may not have the face or the body, but she is definitely good at playing tricks, especially the underhanded kind! Haven’t you heard that quite a handful of secretaries in her department were chased out by her?”
“Yeah. Especially that incident Liu Yue spoke of, that one blew up pretty big, right? I even despised that Liu Yue, but who knew…”
“Unexpectedly, the one to be despised by us should be Pei Ge, right?”
“Exactly! Thinking of it now, she’s so good at pretending to be innocent; how disgusting! She actually cheated our CEO into becoming her guardian angel and defending her…”
“Tsk! Her tricks are probably part of it, but I think that the other part of it is her skills in bed.”
“En. I think so, too. Don’t forget that message Liu Yue had sent back then included our CEO and that woman meeting at a nightclub! Besides, Pei Ge only came to work at our company because she learned that our CEO would be acquiring it!”
“That’s right. I used to think that that information is fake, but now I think that it’s all true! That woman is really scheming; she’s probably just after our CEO’s money…”
Pei Ge’s mood grew worse the more she heard of the women’s increasingly ridiculous talk.
When their defamation became personal attacks, she could take it no more.
“Who does she think she is? For sure, she’ll be dumped by our CEO sooner or later! Just look at her; she’s just a woman that can be played around with as long as one has the money…”
Just the women were getting into their conversation and their words were becoming increasingly vicious, they were cut off by a series of applause.
Clap, clap, clap, clap!
The loud clapping surprised the women.
Before they could turn to see who it was, they heard a cold voice say, “Tsk, tsk. In this day and age, it really doesn’t cost anything to defame someone, huh…”
