“Sister Pei Ge? Sister Pei Ge, what are you thinking of?!”
Once she was done yammering, Qin Qitong realized that a certain individual was not paying heed to her and seemed to be zoning out, instead.
“Sister Pei Ge!”
Noting that she was still a little out of it, the young lady tugged her arms hard and finally pulled her wayward thoughts back in place.
“Ah?” Pei Ge looked at her questioningly, her gaze complicated.
That annoying fellow… isn’t really like what I’m thinking, right…
“Sister Pei Ge, what are you thinking about? You were actually spacing out while I was telling you such an important thing.” The girl glared at her in exasperation, pouting.
“T-That… Qitong, why did your uncle come looking for me?” Pei Ge did not have the time to care for the girl’s feelings as she was currently anxious and could only carefully ask the latter of this.
“Hmph! I’ve been telling you about it just then, haven’t I?” She sulked.
“I was wrong. Big Mistress Qin, please be benevolent and forgive me! Tell me again.” She blinked at her and tried appeasing her with this.
The girl smiled brightly at once as she was not truly angry in the first place.
“Fine. Only because this young lady her likes you that I will repeat this!” The girl grinned and repeated what she had said moments before.
“Actually, my uncle has long known of your existence! He was made to come here by my aunt to see you. He he!”
Beaming at her, the girl continued excitedly. “Actually, the fact that my uncle agreed to come here means that he is likely to approve of your relationship with my cousin! After all, he’s not the type to look for someone he dislikes. Since he agreed to come here, it means that he’s considering accepting you as his daughter-in-law!”
“…” With that, she confirmed that the cliché thoughts she had had earlier were totally off the mark!
“So, Sister Pei Ge will soon become my official cousin-in-law!” the girl squealed excitedly.
“…” Cousin-in-law? How is that possible… That annoying fellow and I aren’t even a real couple.
“Future cousin-in-law, when you guys get married, you must properly thank my aunt! If not for her, it will surely take some time for my uncle to accept you!” The girl eagerly looked at her.
Her cheeks heated up at the way she was addressed by the other, and she directed a fierce glare at her.
“Qitong, don’t speak nonsense!” What is this and that?!
Disregarding that she did not truly meet Ji Ziming’s father, even if she did, it was still impossible for her to become this girl’s cousin-in-law.
“He he! I’m not speaking nonsense! Anyway, I will only acknowledge you as my cousin-in-law! I won’t acknowledge any other woman!” The girl’s laughter grew louder upon noticing her blushing face.
Pei Ge speechlessly shook her head at this, mumbling, “Continue laughing here by yourself. I’ll go up to work first.”
“Aye, aye! Cousin-in-law, wait for me. I’ll go up with you!” The girl followed her up hastily.
“I already said: stop calling me cousin-in-law!”
“Cousin-in-law, don’t do this! We will be family soon, so it doesn’t matter if I call you like that in advance!”
“Qin! Qi! Tong!”
“He he! Cousin-in-law!”
The two went back to their respective offices under such bantering.
Affected by the girl’s claim that the man’s father would come to the company to look for her, Pei Ge was unable to focus on her work for the rest of the afternoon.
All she could think of was what she should say to the man’s father truly came? Also, what kind of attitude should she display before him?
Unexpectedly, while she was preoccupied with this thought the whole afternoon, her anticipated visitor did not even appear in front of her.
In fact, he did not even appear in the company!
After work, she did not need to go looking for Qin Qitong as the latter showed up before her at once.
“Sister Pei Ge, it seems that my uncle did not come today.”
She revealed before the other could ask.
Pei Ge frowned slightly when she heard this.
As they were the only ones left in the office, they were more casual with their words.
“I waited the entire afternoon but did not even see my uncle’s shadow, so I called my aunt, and she told me that he had come home very early on. My aunt then called my uncle’s chauffeur, and that chauffeur actually said that my uncle had already come to the company and left a long time ago, but I totally didn’t even see my uncle!”
The girl rattled off such a long speech.
Not only was the speaker’s voice filled with surprise, even the listener wore a surprised look on her face.
He came already? But… I didn’t see any foreign middle-aged man.
“Sister Pei Ge, my uncle specially came over to see you. Did you get to meet him?” The girl stared at her.
She shook her head at once and said, “No. After having lunch with you all, I went out for a stroll, then came back, and met you. I didn’t meet any middle-aged man.”
“That’s really weird…” Qin Qitong was confused when she heard this. “What do you think is up with my uncle?”
“… Please. If you don’t know, why would I know?” I have never met him before.
The two were puzzled and did not get what was happening or what had happened to the old man.
Meanwhile, in the Ji family’s living room, the atmosphere was very lively.
“Hubby, did you go to Mingming’s company this afternoon?”
Mother Ji stood up from the sofa when her husband returned.
“Mhm. I went.” He nodded apathetically and passed his coat to the housekeeper.
“Why did Tongtong, that child, tell me that she hadn’t seen you at their company?”
“Hmph!” Who would have known that he would snort when he heard this?
“That woman truly has a few tricks up her sleeves. Not only does she have my stupid son wrap around her fingers, she also has full control of Tongtong. She’s truly very scheming!”
The middle-aged madam was stunned when she heard this.
“Hubby, what are you saying?” Why don’t I understand a word of it?
“Right, and you, too. She actually managed to trick you over to her side. That woman is truly amazing!”
Noticing his wife’s lost and confused look, he became more repulsed by Pei Ge.
“Hubby, what are you saying? What ‘trick’?”
