126 Confirm Li Xiwu’s Identity! It’s Her!

Yu Hewei’s sudden movement was too obvious to ignore. Han Qianye stopped what she was doing and looked at Yu Hewei in confusion. “What’s wrong, Weiwei? Do you like mushrooms?”

Yu Hewei was stunned and did not respond for a long time. But those eyes were fixed on Li Xiwu.

Li Xiwu looked up and met Yu Hewei’s gaze. She didn’t know what was wrong with her. Perhaps she wasn’t welcome? Perhaps there was something on her face? Or perhaps it was some inadvertent person she had just done that made her look familiar?

All sorts of possibilities were only Li Xiwu’s guess. She pursed her lips and broke the silence. “Is there something on my face?”

Yu Hewei’s lips parted, but she did not answer Han Qianye, let alone Li Xiwu. At this moment, Madam Di Xin also realized that something was wrong, but she was still calm at her age. She reached out and gently pulled Yu Hewei’s hand. “Weiwei, sit down. Don’t lose your composure.”

Finally, Yu Hewei recovered from her surprise. She looked incredulous. As she sat down, she murmured softly, “That’s impossible…”

After sitting down, Yu Hewei looked at Pei Jingzhou again and saw that his expression was calm and composed. He was not surprised by her sudden movement. After a while, Yu Hewei came back to her senses. Underneath her calm exterior, her heart was in chaos.

At this moment, Han Qianye placed the delicious mushroom soup in front of Yu Hewei. “Does Weiwei like mushrooms?”

Yu Hewei was about to say no. When her gaze landed on Li Xiwu, she suddenly corrected herself. “Yes, I like it.”

Han Qianye adjusted the atmosphere. “From your reaction just now, I guessed that you should like mushrooms too.”

Yu Hewei glanced at the mushroom soup not far in front of her. It was very fresh and fragrant. It was a specialty of Qionglou Restaurant. The cooking method was unique and could be considered a signboard, and her mood was extremely complicated.

The meal was tasteless to Li Xiwu. Thinking about it, if she wasn’t here for the appointment, she would have settled her lunch in the small courtyard today. With Qiao Qiao by her side, she could take another video. She had been thinking about homemade buckwheat noodles for a long time, and the last update was a month ago.

She had just put down her chopsticks. Madam Di Xin’s voice came from the front. “Are these dishes not to Miss Li’s liking?”

Li Xiwu shook her head. “No, the food is delicious. It’s just that my appetite is smaller and I can’t eat much.”

Madam Di Xin’s face was full of pity. “But you’ve only eaten so little. Why don’t you eat more?”

Yu Hewei suddenly said, “Is it because these dishes are too light?”

Qionglou Restaurant’s dishes were very famous, mainly because they were very unique, but they were indeed light. They were healthy dishes.

Li Xiwu pursed her lips slightly. “It’s fine.”

Taking advantage of this moment, Yu Hewei suddenly asked, “Miss Li, do you like spicy food?”

Li Xiwu didn’t answer, because someone else had already answered for her—

“She does. Not only does Xixi like spicy food, but she also eats noodles with mouthfuls of spicy sauce.” It was Han Qianye who answered. Because of the in-law variety show, she knew a lot about Li Xiwu, so she could answer these questions for Li Xiwu.

Yu Hewei didn’t ask anything else, but when she reached for her chopsticks again, her hands were trembling slightly. When Madam Di Xin saw this scene, her mind stirred. This was probably why she had called Yu Hewei to the capital.

Weiwei was extremely familiar with Little You.

After the meal, Li Xiwu was pulled by Madam Di Xin to talk for a while. Pei Jingzhou accompanied her.

Yu Hewei walked over. “Mr. Pei, it’s been a long time. Shall we catch up?”

Pei Jingzhou’s voice was a little faint. “We’re not familiar with each other. Why are we catching up?”

Li Xiwu glanced at the two of them, then looked away, her indifferent expression clear. Seeing that Pei Jingzhou was not giving her face, Yu Hewei raised her voice. “Since Mr. Pei says that you’re not familiar with her, can I talk to Miss Li?”

Li Xiwu, who had been called out, looked over again. After looking into Yu Hewei’s smiling eyes for a moment, Li Xiwu smiled faintly. “Miss Yu, what do you want to talk to me about?”

“We’ll talk about habits and hobbies. There’s a lot to talk about between girls.” The smile on Yu Hewei’s face was very friendly.

When Li Xiwu was not familiar with the other party, she was not willing to interact deeply. She had come here today because she wanted to know how much she resembled the daughter of the benefactor Madam Di Xin had mentioned. However, other than when she first met her today, Madam Di Xin had not mentioned this topic again.

She wanted to refuse contact with Yu Hewei. Just as she was considering how to reject her, Pei Jingzhou slowly stood up and walked out. Yu Hewei smiled and followed Pei Jingzhou outside.

Li Xiwu looked away as the two of them left.

Han Qianye patted Li Xiwu’s arm gently. “Xixi.”

Li Xiwu looked sideways at Han Qianye.

Han Qianye smiled kindly. “Don’t misunderstand. Jingzhou and Weiwei are just ordinary friends.”

Actually, Li Xiwu did not think too much about it. Han Qianye specially explained and she was a little surprised. “I didn’t think too much about it.”

Li Xiwu did not show a hint of speculation. It was as if it had nothing to do with her. Han Qianye looked at Li Xiwu’s nonchalant expression and felt that her explanation just now was not well organized.


Pei Jingzhou stood in front of the screen at the entrance.

Yu Hewei walked over and stopped behind Pei Jingzhou. She said slowly, “After losing Li You for a year, you were afraid of forgetting her, so you found a very similar substitute to keep by your side. You doted on this substitute and valued her very much. You were so good to her and placed all your thoughts on her…”

Yu Hewei spoke for a long time. As she spoke, she walked up to Pei Jingzhou. She looked up at his cold and unreasonable face. “Aren’t you letting Li You down by doing this?”

Pei Jingzhou looked at Yu Hewei with cold eyes. “So what if I’m letting her down?”

So what? Yu Hewei smiled, but as she smiled, her expression returned to its coldness. “Pei Jingzhou, back then, you returned to the country after being seriously injured. I want to know… did you really return alone back then?”

Pei Jingzhou’s jaw tightened. “Is that all you want to ask?”

“That’s not all! I want to ask too much!” Yu Hewei’s voice was a little hoarse. “Li Xiwu looks like Li You. I can understand because she’s the one you picked out from thousands of people. Li Xiwu’s surname is Li. Of course, you carefully chose her, but she…”
