Chapter 40: Who’s the Pervert
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Ji Buwang had been unconscious for four years and had only woken up a few days ago.
Four years had passed, and everything was different. After a period of recovery, these days he would walk around and take a breather.
The news of him waking up was not publicized. Anyway, those who visited him personally would know. It was fine if everyone did not know, for they would find out eventually.
After staying in his hometown for two days, he passed by and saw a cultural performance. He remembered hearing that his niece would be performing at this event and decided to come and take a look since he was bored.
Apart from cute little kids, he had not expected to see a pervert entering the ladies’ room.
He had heard of peeping toms in ladies’ toilets, but this was the first time he had seen a man enter the ladies’ toilets in such a brazen manner.
It was with heaven’s blessings that he had managed to wake up, so he had to be a good person and do good deeds to repay that. He naturally couldn’t ignore such a thing now that he had come across it.
Ji Buwang went forward without any hesitation and knocked that person out.
‘I almost didn’t succeed. I still have to train and recover my strength.’
Ji Gou gazed at the pervert lying on the ground and wanted to call for help. However, there was no one around, so he decided to drag her to the side so she would not get in the way.
When he bent down and tried to drag the person by the armpits, Ji Buwang felt that something was amiss. Why was it so soft? What was this sensation?
Ji Buwang couldn’t help but squeeze.
This sudden attack had made Mu Jingzhe faint before she could react.
Eventually, the pain woke her up.
As soon as she woke up, Mu Jingzhe couldn’t help but swear.
‘Damn it, I actually met a pervert!’
And he had been so eager to start.
Mu Jingzhe was furious.
Her flat chest had been through too many hardships. Previously, she had been hit by a rock, and now, she had been subjected to this. It just so happened that right now, she was also in pain because she was on her period.
As the owner of those boobs, she had to avenge herself! She had to teach this pervert a lesson!
Amidst the sparks, Mu Jingzhe grabbed that evil hand and threw a punch.
The gangster fainted.
Mu Jingzhe touched the back of her neck, which was still in pain, and called for security to tie him up.
To think a crook had actually sneaked into the cultural performance! It would be terrible if this guy went on to harm or even abduct little kids.
She had to get to the bottom of this. Otherwise, she would take him to the police station.
In order to prevent him from hurting anyone, she tied his hands up before pinching his philtrum1.
In TV shows, people were woken up by getting drenched with a bucket of water. In reality, it was more convenient to pinch them by their philtrum, as it evoked a quicker response.
Ji Buwang quickly woke up. When he saw the scene, his first reaction was to think that he had been kidnapped.
“What do you people want?”
“We haven’t asked you what you’re doing,” the security guard said righteously. “Tell us honestly what you’ve done.”
“Other than good deeds, what else could I have done?” Upon seeing Mu Jingzhe beside him, he was furious. “How dare you capture me instead of that pervert?”
The two security guards and Mu Jingzhe looked at each other. “We are arresting a pervert. You.”
They despised people who molested women.
The two security guards looked at him in disdain.
Ji Buwang: “Who’s the pervert?”
When he saw the hand that was pointing at him, Ji Buwang sneered.
A pervert? Him?
He laughed in anger and accused Mu Jingzhe of trickery. “You’re a thief crying out to stop another thief! He’s the pervert! I saw him enter the ladies’ room with my own eyes!”
Mu Jingzhe: “If I don’t enter the ladies’ room, where should I go? Brother, are you short-sighted?”
Wasn’t this too much? Her hair was just a tad short!
Although she wasn’t wearing a skirt, she wasn’t wearing a male outfit either. Even if she was a little flat, she still had feminine curves…
Mu Jingzhe lowered her head to look at herself. Alright, it wasn’t very obvious. But anyone with eyes could tell that she was a woman, right?
Why did she have to suffer such an unexpected calamity?
Mu Jingzhe stared at the man suspiciously.
He looked like a decent human being, but why was there something wrong with his eyes and brain? Or was he pretending?
Ji Buwang was completely dumbfounded. “Why… Why is your voice so feminine?”
Mu Jingzhe couldn’t help but roll her eyes. “Because I’m a woman to begin with. Brother, if you’re short-sighted, you ought to get yourself a pair of glasses. I just have shorter hair.”
“That’s right. If you look closely, you’ll be able to tell she’s a lady.” The security guard agreed.
Ji Buwang: “???”
To think this was actually a girl. Then what he had touched previously was…
Ji Buwang was shocked.
What had he done?
Ji Buwang was in a state of shock. Heat emanated from his hand toward his entire body, making him feel boiling hot. Besides, his mind insisted on recalling that sensation against his will.
Ji Buwang pushed these thoughts away with all his might and cursed himself for being a hooligan.
Ji Buwang’s face turned red as he apologized. “My eyesight is bad, so I misunderstood. I’m sorry…”
He no longer dared to look at Mu Jingzhe.
Mu Jingzhe: “…”
So the reason she had been knocked out and subjected to that treatment was because he had bad eyesight and she had short hair?
The pain in Mu Jingzhe’s chest was still there, but she couldn’t go forward and take revenge.
There was nothing to pinch anyway. Her chest looked really flat.
Mu Jingzhe awkwardly retracted her gaze. “So you didn’t do it on purpose?”
“Of course not.”
Although Mu Jingzhe was speechless, she did not insist on sending him to the police station after the misunderstanding was cleared up.
The freed Ji Buwang stood in front of her, no longer looking as pathetic as before. He looked sincere and convincing.
He was thin and he was wearing a white shirt paired with a suit and suspenders. He looked clean and neat, and he had a hint of a cultured and elegant yet ruffian-ish air. He gave off the vibe of a senior at school during the 1920s.
His facial features were exquisite. With a combination of the look of a man and a woman, he looked both very handsome and pretty. Mu Jingzhe couldn’t help but think of a modern male celebrity.
His skin was very fair, and his hair was curly and longer than Mu Jingzhe’s.
This was the first time Mu Jingzhe had seen such hair in real life. There were many people with naturally curly hair, but this color was slightly yellow, and his hair curled as if it had been specially styled. This hairstyle gave off a modern sense of fashion, as if it was from the modern era.
It might not stand out so much in the modern age, when plenty of fashionable people walked in the streets, but in this day and age, it was extremely eye-catching. It was the sort of thing that caught people’s attention at first glance.
If it hadn’t been for the previous incident, Mu Jingzhe would probably have felt very close to him.
Okay, now he looked a little familiar too.
First of all, his hair resembled Xiao Wu’s hair. Secondly, it had a modern vibe.
However, Mu Jingzhe knew that this person was truly from this era. Just look at how he’d treated her like a man just because of her short hair.
“I hope you could look more closely next time. In the future, more and more girls will have short hair, and there will also be boys with long hair. Don’t assume that a person with short hair must be a man and someone with long hair must be a woman. This kind of distinction is too narrow-minded.”
Ji Buwang: “Yes, I’ll be more careful.”
Though he agreed, he felt bitter in his heart. Guys had long hair, while this girl had short hair. What was he to do?
“I’m leaving first. Remember to go get a pair of glasses.” Mu Jingzhe reminded him when she saw his good attitude.
Ji Buwang smiled bitterly. If only a pair of glasses could remedy this.
His eyes weren’t something glasses could save.
After smiling bitterly, he suddenly realized that he had not asked for her name.
“Wait, I forgot to ask for your name. My name is Ji Buwang. Let’s get to know each other.”
Ji Buwang chased after her.
“My name is Mu Jingzhe. I have other matters to attend to, so I’ll leave now. We’ll talk again when we have the chance. Goodbye.” Mu Jingzhe, who was eager to go back to Little Bei, waved her hand and then left directly.
She didn’t think they would meet again.
Ji Buwang watched Mu Jingzhe walk away, wanting to say something, but stopped himself.
He still had something to say.
Although this was not ancient times, his actions had taken away the girl’s innocence.
But since he had done that sort of thing, should he… take responsibility for what he had done?
Or compensate her?
