120 Want To See Li Xiwu And Confirm It Again!

Li Xiwu looked up at Pei Jingzhou’s calm face. For some reason, she found it a little funny. “You’an didn’t know we would come. Also, don’t be so anxious next time.”

Pei Jingzhou’s expression was not good when he was interrupted. At this moment, Li Xiwu handed him a candy. Pei Jingzhou lowered his eyes and looked at the candy she handed him. “Did you make it yourself?”

Li Xiwu nodded. “Snowflake pastry. I made a lot last time.”

Pei Jingzhou took the snowflake pastry and saw that she was holding a sealed jar in her arms. There were only a few snowflake pastries left. “Is this all there is?”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips and smiled. “Yes.”

Pei Jingzhou’s face darkened. “If we don’t come, this bastard will empty this place.”

Li Xiwu said, “Not to that extent. Actually, there are quite a few—”

“But there’s not much left,” Pei Jingzhou added.

It was true, so Li Xiwu didn’t argue. Pei Jingzhou peeled the candy wrapper and ate it. He turned around and returned to the front of the cabinet. When he opened the cabinet, he saw that the rows of sealed jars were not empty, but there were not many left.

Pei Jingzhou said, “You took in a Taotie.”

Li Xiwu walked over. “You’an is growing.”

Pei Jingzhou closed the cabinet. “He had only increased in size but not in IQ.”

Li Xiwu couldn’t help but laugh. He was really his biological brother. He was extremely sarcastic. They both sat down. Li Xiwu took out the peach blossom wine she had brewed previously and poured herself a glass without pouring it for Pei Jingzhou.

Pei Jingzhou just looked at her.

Li Xiwu explained, “Fourth Brother is injured now. You have to abstain from alcohol.”

Pei Jingzhou asked, “I can’t even try it?”

Li Xiwu was silent for a moment before pouring Pei Jingzhou a little peach blossom wine. “A light taste is fine.”

Pei Jingzhou took the cup and looked at the pitifully small amount of peach blossom wine inside. “You’re more precise than a doctor.”

Li Xiwu raised an eyebrow. “Of course.”

Pei Jingzhou smelled it. “It smells good. When did you brew it?”

Li Xiwu slowly savored it. “At the beginning of the year.” She took a video and posted it on Mother Dragon’s account. The Peach Blossom Wine was also trending at that time.

Pei Jingzhou took a sip. “Good brew.”

Anyone would be happy to be praised for the results. Li Xiwu said, “Get better as soon as possible. You can drink to your heart’s content then.”

Pei Jingzhou’s eyes darkened. “It will get better soon.”

His gaze was like a hook as Li Xiwu looked away unnaturally. Thinking of his wound, she shifted her gaze to his injured arm. “Is the wound okay?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “It’s not a big problem.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “You made me worry after being injured.”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “It’s just my hand that was injured, not anywhere else. It won’t affect me.” He said it so casually. But the gauze on his hand was wrapped from his hand to his arm. It was obvious that the wound was very deep.

She looked at him. “You want to spill blood on the spot?”

Pei Jingzhou raised his hand and tucked the hair on her forehead behind her ear. His movements were natural and intimate. “Not to that extent. I can control it well.”

Li Xiwu slapped his hand away. “What else can you think except this?”

Pei Jingzhou said seriously, “I’m researching new tricks so that you won’t get tired of it.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

She took a sip of the peach blossom wine and fell silent. The more they chatted, the more dirty it became.

“Coming, coming. The rice noodles are ready.” Pei You’an walked in with a bowl of rice noodles. After putting it down, he quickly touched his earlobe. “Wait, there’s another bowl.” Then he ran to the kitchen and brought the second bowl over. “Brother, Sister-in-law, eat while it’s hot.”

Li Xiwu had prepared the rice noodles beforehand, and she had also mixed the ingredients bag herself. Pei You’an had already shown off five portions of rice noodles in the past two days. It couldn’t be helped. It was really too delicious. If it weren’t for the fact that he was a little afraid of living alone, he really wanted to live here for the rest of his life.

Pei You’an rubbed his hands and sat down. He rubbed his hands and realized that his brother was looking at him. Pei You’an paused. “Brother, what’s wrong?”

Pei Jingzhou praised, “Your skills are not bad.”

Pei You’an raised his hand and scratched behind his ear in embarrassment. “It’s alright, it’s alright. I can barely make it. Anyway, I won’t starve to death outside.”

Pei Jingzhou asked him, “Have you eaten?”

Pei You’an smiled foolishly. “Yes.”

Pei Jingzhou’s gaze was unfriendly. “Why are you sitting here after eating?”

The smile on Pei You’an’s lips disappeared. He stood up consciously and did not forget to complain before he left. “Brother, you’re so dictatorial.”

Pei Jingzhou picked up his chopsticks and handed them to Li Xiwu. “If I were a dictator, you would have been chased out by now.”

Pei You’an: “…”

After finding his book, Pei You’an went out and turned around to go next door. After taking a few steps, he turned around and leaned against the door frame. “Brother, that… I’m going to do the papers.”

Pei Jingzhou picked up the spoon on the table and threw it at Pei You’an.

Pei You’an reached out and caught it. He surprised himself. “I’m so impressive.” Pei You’an returned with the spoon and placed it carefully on the table. “Brother, I wanted to say… be quiet.” With that, he put down the spoon and Pei You’an immediately slipped away.

Li Xiwu tried her best to suppress the smile on her lips and reminded him, “For the sake of the adolescent’s physical and mental health, Fourth Brother, let’s wash up and sleep after eating.”

Pei Jingzhou: “…”

God knew how much Pei Jingzhou regretted suddenly changing his mind and coming to the small courtyard. If he had known, he wouldn’t have come.

The Pei residence in the wealthy district was brightly lit.

Han Qianye had already washed up. It was time for her to take care of herself. Not long ago, she called her youngest son and found out about the transfer. She put on a mask and went to look for Pei Qingji. “Hubby! Hubby!”

Pei Qingji was wiping his beloved small fishing rod. When he heard his wife approaching, he was so frightened that he quickly hid the small fishing rod under the bed. When he stood up, Han Qianye had already entered.

Han Qianye frowned. “What are you hiding?”

Pei Qingji was calm. “…Guess.”

Han Qianye walked closer. “You bought a fishing rod again?”

“No, how is that possible!” Pei Qingji denied it and pretended to be calm. “I stopped fishing long ago.” No one would believe that.

Han Qianye was about to bend down to look under the bed when Pei Qingji pulled Han Qianye back and conjured a gem with his hand like magic. “It’s here.”

Han Qianye looked at the pink-orange gem in Pei Qingji’s hand. “Yo.”

Pei Qingji thought to himself, Fortunately, he was prepared. He had just bought this Padparadscha gem a while ago. He had originally planned to make it into a necklace and surprise his wife on the day of the 27th anniversary of their marriage.

In order to protect his beloved little fishing rod tonight, he could only take it out first. He would prepare another anniversary gift.

“Do you want to make it into a ring or a necklace?” Pei Qingji asked.

What Han Qianye cared about was, “When did you buy it?”

Pei Qingji answered truthfully, “I bid for it last month.”

Han Qianye asked again, “How much did it cost?”

Pei Qingji recalled. “8.6 million.”

Han Qianye carefully put away the gem. “The other gems might be a little shabby at eight million yuan. But the Padparadscha is alright. I’ll make a necklace for Xixi.”

Pei Qingji: “?”

Han Qianye had completely forgotten the business of looking for her husband. She returned to the bedroom and put away the gem. She took her phone and prepared to contact the jewelry shop to design a style for her necklace. Coincidentally, as soon as she picked up her phone, she saw a call from Madam Di Xin.

Han Qianye remembered the trending topic yesterday and picked up the phone. “Hello~”

“Qianye, it’s me.” Madam Di Xin’s voice came on the line. “I’ll see you tomorrow. Is that okay?”

There was no variety show recording or live broadcast tomorrow, so she naturally had time. However, Han Qianye could not tell what Madam Di Xin was thinking. “Sure, sure. Ask me out alone?”

On the other end of the line, Madam Di Xin pondered for a moment and asked gently, “Can you bring Miss Li?”
