Chapter 1147: 1147

Late at night .

 Pei Ge poured herself a glass of red wine . She sat on the sofa at the patio and sipped her wine quietly .

 She raised her head and looked at the dark sky above . There never were stars to look at in the night sky of the capital; all one could see was a city full of neon lights .


 She placed her glass gently on the table and picked up the invitation that she had casually left on the couch .


 She pursed her lips as she eyed the black and gold embossed invitation, which looked simple yet elegant .

 Even though she did not want to meet those people from her past, the capital was really not that big for the rich . Besides, they were in the same field, so it was only a matter of time before they met .

 At this thought, her eyes dimmed .

 She rubbed her fingers against the invitation in her hand . Feeling friction between her fingers, her heart calmed down .


 She smiled, the curves of her lips looking rather mocking .

 “What’s there to be afraid of? What of them recognizing me?”

 She sneered, narrowing her eyes at the invitation between her fingers .

 Raising her hand, she picked up the unfinished glass of wine . She shook it gently and finished the last bit of it .

 “I’m no longer who I used to be…” she murmured softly, sounding a bit lost .

 However, more in her voice was determination .

 Just as her best friend said; even if her mother woke up from her coma now, she might not even recognize her, not to mention Ji Ziming and the others .

 Besides, even Mu Heng failed to recognize her .

 There was nothing to be troubled about, really .

 Rather than speculating, she should focus on why a small real-estate company like the Minghao Group would get invited by a big company like the Ji Group .

 The Ji Group did not often have business gatherings .

 Even if they did, their guest list was restricted to the elites in the nation .

 Even though the company she was in now was doing rather well, they still were still far from deserving an invitation .

 Why exactly did they get invited…


 Mu Heng did not expect the casual favor he had asked of his best friend would lead to her speculation .

 Even now, he was still thanking Ji Ziming .

 “Have you already had someone send an invitation to Minghao? I should be able to see my goddess tomorrow, right?”

 He blinked at his best friend expectantly .

 He had not seen Pei Ge since she rejected him last time .

 Thus, when he found out that the Ji Group was hosting a business gathering, he made a rather selfish request to his friend .


 The man looked away from the documents and glanced at his friend upon perceiving his excitement .

 “Given . ”

 The latter almost whooped in joy when he received the former’s confirmation .

 It was the first time the man had seen him like this .

 “That’s great!”

 Thinking that he could see his goddess tomorrow, Mu Heng felt warm and happy inside .

 Even though he knew that his goddess was married with kids, he still could not stop thinking about her .

 “My friend, you’re forbidden from stealing my limelight tomorrow . ”

 He threatened the other suddenly as if reminded of something .

 Of course, his threat did not have any effect on the other .

 “Hey, I’m being serious here . You have enough on your hands already when it comes to romance . You should just try to make yourself look as ugly as possible . ”

 When his friend ignored him, he continued insisting with a smile .

 “Also, tomorrow…”

 Ji Ziming looked up from his work again when he judged that his friend would keep talking .

 “Are you done?”


 The latter shrugged with a smile despite knowing that he was a little annoyed .

 “Okay! I won’t talk to you further! I gotta prepare myself for tomorrow . If I do that, maybe her majesty will see me finally . ”

 “Hurry up and leave, then,” he said coolly, tugging at the corner of his lips .

 “Tsk . I’ll leave even without you chasing me out . ”

 Mu Heng glared at his friend one last time before leaving the office excitedly .

 Hearing the door close gently, Ji Ziming paused and looked up .

 Because of his best friend, he was beginning to get a little curious about Minghao’s newest board member from New York’s Wall Street .

 “Regina…” he uttered coldly, “has some capabilities, it seems…”

 He raised a brow at this thought .

 Even if his best friend did not request for him to invite that woman, he might invite her as well .

 After all, capable people deserved attention; did they not?

 Knock, knock, knock!

 He rapped his knuckles on the surface of the study table pensively .

 Still, that woman was strange .

 Even though he had spent quite some time in New York’s Wall Street, he had never interacted with her, nor had he seen her before .

 While he had heard about her, he had never seen her in person .

 At this thought, the man frowned subconsciously .

 He felt like something was off deep down, but he did not pay much attention to her, given that the name was rather unfamiliar to him .

 It was just a stranger .

 He scoffed lightly, not taking her existence to heart .

 He only thought of that woman because he rather admired talented and capable people .

 That must be it . He smiled and buried himself in work again .

 Little did he expect that he would regret not meeting the woman, whom he had scoffed at, sooner when they finally met…
