128 President Pei Is Infertile

This was the first time Li Xiwu had mentioned that person’s name in front of Pei Jingzhou. She had never mentioned it before and had never asked.

Occasionally, she would mention that she only wanted to go to Country T with Pei Jingzhou. However, at that time, his expression would always change, but it was not anger. Instead, it was a complicated feeling that she could not see through.

After that, she never mentioned going to Country T again. When the contract marriage was about to end, she met Madam Di Xin and Miss Yu, who hugged her with red eyes.

Li Xiwu’s heart was in a mess. This had nothing to do with her, but subconsciously, she felt that it was all related to her.

After being silent for so long, Pei Jingzhou did not expect Li Xiwu’s first question to be this question. His jaw tightened. “What kind of answer do you want to hear?”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “The truth.” She looked into his eyes. Her steady gaze conveyed that at this moment all she wanted was a real answer.

Pei Jingzhou replied, “Yes.”

Li Xiwu looked at Pei Jingzhou’s cold face. “It’s been three years. Can you still distinguish between her and me?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “There’s no need to distinguish.”

“It has to be distinguished.” Li Xiwu’s voice faded a little. “No matter how similar we are, we’re not the same person. If she finds out, she won’t be happy. Fourth Brother, don’t make the girl you love angry.”

Pei Jingzhou asked, “What about you?”

Li Xiwu looked relieved again. “I’m different. I’m her substitute. I keep getting and having. I’ve never lost it, so I’m free.”

At this point, Li Xiwu even relaxed a lot. The complicated emotions Yu Hewei had brought her in the Qionglou just now had already disappeared.

Pei Jingzhou reached over and held Li Xiwu’s hand. “Honey.” Li Xiwu’s heart trembled when she heard him call her that. She looked up at him. Pei Jingzhou’s pupils were deep as he stared into her eyes. “I love you.”

The moment these three words came out of Pei Jingzhou’s mouth, Li Xiwu’s heart trembled and her pupils constricted. A few seconds later, she retracted her hand from Pei Jingzhou’s palm as if she was burning. She took a deep breath and reminded him, “I’m not Li You. Fourth Brother has given me your favor. Don’t put such a serious love on me again.”

Pei Jingzhou looked at her quietly for a long time. Then he cupped her face in his hands and kissed her. The driver consciously raised the barrier, cutting off the scene behind him.

Li Xiwu was very obedient and allowed Pei Jingzhou to kiss her. Be it her eyebrows, nose, cheeks, or the last corner of her lips, she did not resist. There was no response either.

Pei Jingzhou did not care if she responded. When the deep, loving kiss ended, he pulled her into his arms, his lips calming his breath in her ear. “Are you disappointed in me?”

Li Xiwu lowered her eyes and did not reply. There was another silence. After a long time, Pei Jingzhou said, “That day will come eventually…”

Li Xiwu spent the afternoon dealing with work.

Only work could keep her mind clear and make her feel grounded. She was busy until around four o’clock. She went to visit Ji Weiling’s production team. Ji Weiling was especially happy. Initially, she only treated Li Xiwu to milk tea, but because she was in a good mood, she treated the entire production team to milk tea.

At night, Li Xiwu did not return to Lake Lu.

She went to the small courtyard. Qiao Qiao was here too.

Li Xiwu looked at the soup in the pot. “Qiao’er, make the fire bigger.”

Qiao Qiao smiled as she added firewood. “You use the induction cooker when you’re alone. You start the fire when I come. I’m impressed. You’re making my face gray.”

Li Xiwu thoughtfully took a tissue. “I’ll wipe it for you.”

When best friends were together, they barely talked about work. They talked about the present, about everything, and about privacy.

After knowing what was on Li Xiwu’s mind, she said frankly, “You only went on the in-law variety show after getting 400 million yuan for the divorce. In the end, not only did you get on good terms with your mother-in-law, but your relationship with your husband also improved a lot. You’re not rushing for a divorce, you’re rushing for a two to four babies.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

She put down the spoon in her hand and turned to look at Qiao Qiao, who was sitting on the small bench and burning the fire. “Forget about the first child. Two to four babies? Am I a sow?”

Qiao Qiao continued to add firewood. “At this rate, if you don’t have two or three babies, one baby won’t be far away.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips and her expression was a little serious. “Perhaps. Even if Pei Jingzhou and I continue like this, we won’t have children.”

Qiao Qiao understood. “Of course. Who would have a child with someone who doesn’t love them? You’d be stupid to have one.”

Li Xiwu looked at Qiao Qiao with a serious expression. “Pei Jingzhou is infertile.”

The air went quiet. The only sound was the crackling of firewood. The topics between best friends were bold to begin with. The two of them chatted about everything in private. After about ten seconds, Qiao Qiao sat upright. “Please tell me the details.”

Li Xiwu picked up a spoon and stirred the soup in the pot. She tasted it. “There were several times when I didn’t take precautions, just in case I wanted to get a contraceptive shot. Taking medicine is ultimately bad for your health. But before I got the shot, I went to the hospital for a checkup. Not only is it normal, but I’m also susceptible to pregnancy.”

Qiao Qiao’s eyes widened. She couldn’t wait to continue. “Please continue.”

Li Xiwu crossed her arms and supported her chin with one hand. “But I’ve never been pregnant, so I think Pei Jingzhou must be infertile.”

Qiao Qiao looked like she had eaten a melon. “Damn! This is why Pei Jingzhou can’t have children!”

Li Xiwu nodded. “Then I quietly confirmed that I really wouldn’t get pregnant, so I think my guess was right.”

After Qiao Qiao recovered from her surprise, she looked regretful. “Tsk, President Pei’s family is rich, but it’s a pity that they don’t have a descendant.”

Li Xiwu laughed. “Don’t they still have Pei You’an?”

“Oh, that’s true. There’s also Pei You’an.” Qiao Qiao asked again, “Does Pei Jingzhou know that he can’t give birth?”

“I just found out.”

Li Xiwu was not the one who answered. Instead, it was a voice from outside the door.

Qiao Qiao shuddered. She turned around and looked at the man who had come in. She was frightened. “…President Pei!”

The corners of Li Xiwu’s mouth stiffened. Indeed, one could not speak ill of others behind their backs. But she didn’t seem to be saying anything bad. It was a fact she’d developed.

Pei Jingzhou looked at the terrified Qiao Qiao from the corner of his cold eye. “Are you surprised to see me?”

Qiao Qiao swallowed hard and laughed dryly. “How could that be… Hehe, please sit, President Pei.” She laughed dryly as she stood up and slowly moved her feet out. She moved to Li Xiwu’s side and whispered, “Didn’t you say that today is our happy time? Why is Pei Jingzhou here?”

“Uh…” Li Xiwu was speechless. She said that Pei Jingzhou would not come, but that’s what she thought.

Qiao Qiao looked at Pei Jingzhou’s Yama-like face and panicked. “I-I’ll go over and find some snacks to eat. I’m craving it a little.” She left after saying that.

Li Xiwu: “…”

Pei Jingzhou walked over and said, “I accidentally heard you mention that I’m infertile?”
