129 Knowing One Truth

Li Xiwu turned, her expression unnatural. “I was joking with Qiao Qiao.” Pei Jingzhou walked behind her and silently hugged her from behind. Li Xiwu’s body suddenly stiffened. She took a deep breath and asked, “Fourth Brother, are you angry? If you’re angry about this, I apologize.”

Pei Jingzhou’s low voice sounded in her ear. “You don’t have to apologize. I really can’t give birth.”

Li Xiwu: “?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “So I’m destined to have no descendants in this life. I’ll be alone and helpless.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

If she didn’t know about this, she definitely wouldn’t believe Pei Jingzhou’s casual admission. However, she had personally confirmed this matter, so when Pei Jingzhou admitted it himself, her heart tightened for no reason. She couldn’t tell what she was feeling.

“Honey, do you pity me?” Pei Jingzhou asked her.

Li Xiwu answered truthfully. “A little.” After answering, she pried open his wrist and turned around to ask, “Is there a way to resolve infertility? Are you planning to never have a child?”

Pei Jingzhou curled his beautiful lips. “Isn’t it good to have no descendants?”

Li Xiwu took a deep breath. “It’s too early to say. Medical technology is advanced now. There might be a chance.”

Pei Jingzhou asked her, “Are you having a child with me?”

Li Xiwu was stunned.

At this moment, Pei Jingzhou took off the scarf around his neck and wrapped it around Li Xiwu’s neck. “It’s starting to become cold today. Cover yourself with a blanket when you sleep tonight. I’ll leave first.”

Li Xiwu: “?”

He left just like that? Li Xiwu was stunned. Seeing that Pei Jingzhou had already walked to the door, she took two steps forward and called out, “Fourth Brother.”

Pei Jingzhou paused and turned to look at her. “Yes?”

Li Xiwu’s lips moved. She wanted to ask him if he had eaten, but the words were still on her lips.

Pei Jingzhou returned and hugged Li Xiwu. “You didn’t go home tonight, so I thought I’d come over to take a look. I’m relieved to confirm that you’re here.”

Li Xiwu’s eyelids fluttered. After a light hug, Pei Jingzhou let go of her. Li Xiwu shouted again, “Fourth Brother.” She had nothing else to say. “Be safe on the road,” was all she said.

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “Okay.”

It had only been a few minutes since Pei Jingzhou came and left tonight. Li Xiwu thought that he would probably not leave tonight. Qiao Qiao might not feel comfortable staying.

Who knew. He came over just to make sure she was here. Once he confirmed, he left.

Li Xiwu was silent for a long time. The warmth on her neck spread to her limbs. The travel-worn figure kept appearing in her mind.

Qiao Qiao leaned against the door frame. “Damn, Pei Jingzhou actually left?”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “Yes.”

Qiao Qiao walked in and walked to Li Xiwu’s side. “Did you argue? No, there didn’t seem to be any noise just now. Pei Jingzhou left just like that. That shouldn’t be the case. I thought I was the one who should leave.”

Li Xiwu focused. “He came to make sure I was here.”

Qiao Qiao immediately fell silent. It was quiet for a long time. When they were at the table for dinner, Qiao Qiao spoke first to break the silence. “Are you conflicted now?”

Li Xiwu ate her food. “A little.”

Qiao Qiao said pertinently, “If Pei Jingzhou can really live well with you, it’s not impossible.”

Li Xiwu picked up some food for Qiao Qiao. “Let’s not talk about this. After you’re done, wash the dishes and go to bed early. I still have to record a variety show tomorrow. That 400 million is getting closer and closer to me.”

Qiao Qiao’s eyes lit up when she heard 400 million.

At the mention of washing the dishes, Qiao Qiao sighed. “I’m so miserable.”

Li Xiwu smiled. “Alright, I’ll wash.”

Qiao Qiao quickly said, “No, no, no. I’ll wash it. I can still tell the difference between having one delicious meal and having a lot of delicious meals.”

The next day.

Just as Pei Jingzhou had said, the temperature had dropped. As soon as she went out, cold air rushed into her neck from all directions. She tied the scarf Pei Jingzhou had brought her last night and rubbed her hands together. She felt warm and got into the car.

Li Xiwu and Qiao Qiao didn’t go in the same direction, and Qiao Qiao left earlier. Li Xiwu was alone when she went out.

At a few minutes past eight, the car arrived in Fu Town. As soon as Li Xiwu got out of the car, she heard someone call her, “Sister Li!”

Li Xiwu looked up and saw Xu Muzhen waving at her. She locked the car and walked over.

When Xu Muzhen spoke, white mist came out of her mouth. “Sister Li, you’re early.” It was because the day was too early. There was frost in the morning, so white fog would appear when she spoke.

Li Xiwu said, “I’m not early. Obviously you’re earlier than me.”

Xu Muzhen chuckled. “Actually, my mother-in-law and I have only been here for a few minutes. By the way, your mother-in-law is here too.”

Xu Muzhen had just finished speaking.

Han Qianye, who was wrapped in a black down jacket not far away, was rushing over. As soon as she arrived in front of Li Xiwu, she said, “Xixi, I just learned a magic trick.”

Li Xiwu said, “Magic?”

“Yes,” Han Qianye said. “This magic trick is to make a strong wind blow in your mouth instantly.”

Xu Muzhen knew what Han Qianye’s next step was. She laughed so hard that she held her waist. “Hahahahaha…”

Li Xiwu was a little stunned. She looked at Xu Muzhen, who was smiling, and then at the serious Han Qianye. “How?”

Han Qianye said, “Open your mouth first.”

Li Xiwu hesitated.

Han Qianye said, “I’m not fooling you. It’s really magic.”

Li Xiwu slowly opened her mouth. Han Qianye raised her hand and stuffed a candy into Li Xiwu’s mouth.

Li Xiwu tasted it. “Mints.”

Han Qianye blinked with anticipation. “Is there wind in your mouth? Is it a gale?”

Li Xiwu: “…”

Later on, Li Xiwu learned that the mint was Xu Muzhen’s. Just because Xu Muzhen said to Xiang Lan that she felt a strong wind in her mouth every time she ate the mint, Han Qianye followed suit and turned around to tease Li Xiwu.

There was a hawthorn tree on the other side of the inn. Xu Muzhen discovered it first. Xu Muzhen picked a few hawthorns for Li Xiwu. Before Li Xiwu ate them, Xu Muzhen tasted one herself and immediately narrowed her eyes.

Li Xiwu, who was about to take a bite, saw Xu Muzhen’s expression and silently put away the hawthorn.

Xu Muzhen shrunk her neck in sourness. “Fu Town is good at everything, but the fruit is too sour.” She’d tasted a little of the last grapefruit and almost had a trauma over it. The hawthorn picked today was on par with grapefruit.

“Miss Li!” Gao Yueban waved his hand and shouted.

Li Xiwu walked towards Gao Yueban. When she got closer, she heard Gao Yueban ask, “Miss Li, have you greeted Miss Xue?”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “Yes.”

Gao Yueban was relieved. “That’s good.” After saying that, he casually said, “As expected of someone who came out of nowhere. This Miss Xue is also from a wealthy family.”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows in surprise. Did Xue Jinzhu still have the image of a wealthy family? However, she was not sure.
