117 Fourth Brother Is Angry, Have To Coax

Li Xiwu’s hair was still wet when she went out. A few minutes later, the car arrived at the Pei Corporation.

Chen Xin saw Li Xiwu’s car and walked towards her. “Miss Li!”

Li Xiwu closed the car door and looked up at Chen Xin. “Is he still in the office?”

Chen Xin was completely relieved to see Li Xiwu. “Yes, Mr. Pei hasn’t left.”

Noticing that Li Xiwu’s hair was half wet and dry, Chen Xin said worriedly, “Miss Li, your… hair?”

Li Xiwu brushed her hair behind her back and lied expressionlessly. “The hair dryer is broken.”

Chen Xin: “…”

Alright, he would not expose her. At this time, most of the Pei Corporation’s employees had already gotten off work. Other than the people from the president’s office. As they did not dare to leave. After all, the big boss had yet to leave.

When Wang Kaiheng saw Assistant Chen bring the lady boss up, he immediately stood up. Just as he was about to call for help, Li Xiwu said, “Thank you for your hard work. You can get off work first.”

Wang Kaiheng did not dare to make a sound and silently glanced at Chen Xin. Are you leaving?

Chen Xin pursed his lips. Why are you looking at me? I’ll leave if you leave first!

Wang Kaiheng swallowed. You should go first. I’ll leave immediately once you do!

Chen Xin: Why aren’t you leaving?!

The two of them chatted with their eyes until they were almost arguing. As soon as Li Xiwu entered, Wang Kaiheng immediately walked to Chen Xin’s side. “Assistant Chen, aren’t you going to meet the beauty tonight? Is it too late?”

Chen Xin glared at Wang Kaiheng. “Please don’t be so nosy.”

Wang Kaiheng said, “I’m not gossiping, but the lust on your face has been too obvious recently.”

Chen Xin raised his hand and straightened his collar, thinking, Did I?

Just like in the morning, Li Xiwu entered the office and did not see Pei Jingzhou. She walked to the door of the lounge and knocked lightly. “Fourth Brother.” She waited a few seconds, but there was no response.

Li Xiwu opened the door and went in. As bright as the light outside was, the lounge was as dark. She reached for the light switch, but before she could touch the switch, she was suddenly grabbed by the wrist and was pulled.

Li Xiwu was shocked. Even though she knew it was Pei Jingzhou, she was still shocked. In the blink of an eye, the door closed behind her. She was pressed against the back of the door by Pei Jingzhou. There was no expected pain. His arm was across her back shoulder blade.

At close range, their breaths intertwined. Being pressed against him, she couldn’t break free. She steadied her breathing and shouted, “Fourth Brother, it’s me.”

Pei Jingzhou’s voice was magnetic. “You’re only picking me up now?”

In the darkness, she couldn’t see his face clearly. All she could see was the outline of his jaw. “I’ve been running around today. I went back first and washed up and changed my clothes before coming. Is that considered ritualistic?”

Pei Jingzhou let go of her. “You just forgot. You’re making excuses.”

Li Xiwu choked. Alright, she was definitely making excuses.

“Why is your hair still wet?” His fingertips touched the ends of her hair.

Li Xiwu went with the flow. “It meant that I can’t wait to pick you up.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “What a glib tongue.”

Li Xiwu: “?”

Pei Jingzhou turned around. “But I like to hear it.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

She reached out to turn on the light. In front of her was Pei Jingzhou’s back. It looked a little like he was… sulking?! At this moment, the sulking man went to the bathroom and came out with a hairdryer. “Come and dry your hair.”

Li Xiwu raised her hand to touch the ends of her hair. It was half-wet and dry. “It’ll dry later. No need.”

Pei Jingzhou suddenly asked, “What month is it now?”

Li Xiwu answered seriously. “November.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “You know it’s November.”

Li Xiwu: “?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Be good. Come and dry your hair.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. It was already winter in November in the capital. It was fine during the day. But at night, the cold wind would attack. She came out with her hair wet and was indeed not very responsible for her body.

Walking over, she reached out to take the hairdryer. “I’ll do it myself. It’ll be faster to blow it myself.”

Pei Jingzhou raised his eyebrows. “You think I’m slow?”

Li Xiwu: “…”

It was better not to reply easily, or the words would change their meaning. Perhaps because he had dried her hair a few times before, Pei Jingzhou was familiar with his actions and quickly helped Li Xiwu dry her hair.

Li Xiwu went to the bathroom to tidy her hair. When she came out, she saw Pei Jingzhou standing in front of the French window, preparing to light a cigarette. As she walked over, he took it away.

Li Xiwu stood beside him. “I don’t mind. Fourth Brother, you can smoke.”

Pei Jingzhou glanced sideways. “Smoking is not good for your health.”

Li Xiwu: “?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Why aren’t you controlling me?”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “…”

He threw the cigarette on the table beside him and looked up at the lights outside the window quietly. He had no intention of going home.

Li Xiwu asked calmly, “Fourth Brother, aren’t you going home?”

Pei Jingzhou did not respond. Li Xiwu thought of the warmth and gentleness when he was drying her hair just now. She looked at his side profile and apologized seriously. “I was indeed so busy today that I forgot. Don’t be angry.”

It was not that she had lowered her attitude, but she had not done what she had said. Regardless of whether Pei Jingzhou was her husband or not, she should apologize solemnly.

Pei Jingzhou’s cold voice became a little muffled. “It means that you didn’t take me seriously. That’s why you forgot when you were busy.”

Li Xiwu took a deep breath. “There’s really a lot going on today. Don’t you know that too?”

Pei Jingzhou: “So this is the reason?”

Li Xiwu was speechless for a moment. After a few seconds of silence, she walked around Pei Jingzhou and stood in front of him. “Are you going home?” Her tone was straight up, not as gentle as before. When she did not hear Pei Jingzhou’s answer, Li Xiwu said, “If you don’t reply, I’ll leave first.”

Pei Jingzhou was unmoved. Li Xiwu left immediately and turned to leave the lounge. She hadn’t gone far when she heard the crisp sound of a cup hitting the floor in the lounge. Li Xiwu paused, closed her eyes hard, and exhaled. Finally, she returned to the lounge.

Pei Jingzhou had just poured a glass of water. Seeing her return, he said coldly, “My hand was inconvenient, so I accidentally broke a cup.”

She knew he was deliberately mentioning his inconvenient hand. She composed herself and walked over in a few steps. She wanted to be gentle, but she couldn’t suppress her anger. “I’ll ask you again. Are you going back?”

Her tone was fierce. Pei Jingzhou was not the only one stunned. After Li Xiwu finished being fierce, she was stunned for a moment.

However, her surprise did not show on her face, but in her heart. She thought that since she was already fierce, she could not change her style immediately. Otherwise, it would seem like she was joking.

“Pei Jingzhou, are you listening to me?” Her tone remained unchanged and was slightly domineering.

Pei Jingzhou was silent for two to three seconds before smiling. “If you don’t go home, my wife will attack me.”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows slightly. They came out of the Pei Corporation building.

Li Xiwu asked, “Is Fourth Brother driving, or should I?”

Pei Jingzhou used his uninjured hand to close Li Xiwu’s collar to prevent the cold wind from entering. There was a meaningful smile on his lips. “You drive now. I’ll drive when we get back.”
