147 An Unexpected Meeting of Love Rivals


Gu Lanshi!

Li Xiwu immediately reacted. The man who had draped his clothes over her just now was Tang Xian’s son, Gu Lanshi! After realizing this man’s identity, Li Xiwu did not say anything and pursed her lips.

On the other hand, Xue Jinzhu said in shock, “You’re Auntie Tang’s son? The whatever-shi?”

The man said, “Gu Lanshi.”

“Yes, Gu Lanshi… Uh, no, what, you’re Gu Lanshi?!” Xue Jinzhu was confused, and the rest was shocked.

Tang Xian walked over and explained, “Lanshi, the person in front of you is Miss Xue. You got the wrong person just now.”

Gu Lanshi looked at Li Xiwu, whose expression was slightly dark behind Xue Jinzhu. After a moment, he retracted his gaze and the smile on his face faded a little. “So I’ve got the wrong person.”

Xue Jinzhu was not in the mood to notice Gu Lanshi’s expression.

When she heard that he was Gu Lanshi, she, who was originally standing in front of Li Xiwu, immediately walked behind her and whispered, “Sister Li, he’s Gu Lanshi. Auntie Tang didn’t lie to me. His son has really been handsome since high school, but still, Brother is much more handsome than him.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

She looked up at Gu Lanshi. At the same time, Gu Lanshi was looking at her. After a few seconds of looking at each other, Li Xiwu looked into the other party’s eyes. As she looked, she actually felt a sense of déjà vu from this stranger.

But when she thought about it carefully, she didn’t remember this person’s face.

Under Tang Xian’s introduction, Gu Lanshi smiled apologetically at her. “So it’s Miss Li. I don’t usually pay attention to live broadcasts. I only heard my mother occasionally mention you on the variety show. I didn’t expect to make a fool of myself the first time I saw you. I’m sorry for being rude just now.”

Gu Lanshi was very sincere in apologizing.

Li Xiwu herself was only a little surprised. It didn’t rise to the level of anger. “I’m fine.”

Gu Lanshi waved the winter coat in his hand. “Miss Li doesn’t mind me, but I really feel bad. This winter coat is brand new. I want to give this winter coat to Miss Li.”

Li Xiwu refused directly. “No need. This is a coat for Jinzhu. Give it to Jinzhu. Mount Liang is very cold. She didn’t prepare a very thick coat.”

Gu Lanshi did not insist. “Alright, we’ll listen to Miss Li.”

“Oh…” Xue Jinzhu said from behind Li Xiwu, “This temporary boyfriend doesn’t seem to be that scary. He’s quite considerate.”

She heard that he had a powerful background and was quite imposing. In the end, it was not what she had heard at all. He was clearly gentle and smiling. He was also very gentlemanly.

Li Xiwu smiled and did not answer Xue Jinzhu. She had nothing to do here, so she planned to return to the inn.

At this moment, a car drove over.

Li Xiwu looked up and recognized at a glance that it was Pei Jingzhou’s car. She was stunned for two to three seconds before walking over without hesitation.

Xue Jinzhu was about to stop Li Xiwu when she saw the person in the car and immediately shut her mouth.

Gu Lanshi watched this scene quietly, his eyes dark.

The car stopped. A moment later, Pei Jingzhou got out of the driver’s seat. He had driven here personally. After closing the door, he opened the door to the backseat and lifted out two very large dust bags. Then he walked towards Li Xiwu.

Li Xiwu stopped when she got there. She stood there quietly and watched Pei Jingzhou walk towards her step by step. Her gaze fell on him. It had probably been a long time since she’d seen him go out dressed so casually.

A white shirt with a thick woven vest over it. Although casual, it still made it impossible to look away.

Li Xiwu remembered that Pei Jingzhou had always been a particular person. On many occasions, he would dress very formally and not casually. Most of the time, he would wear a formal three-piece suit or two-piece suit without a tie. He was mature and full of charm.

It was rare to see him dressed so casually outside today. He came over and stood in front of her.

She looked at his cold face and was a little distracted. “Fourth Brother.”

He nodded and took her hand first. Feeling the coldness of her palm, he lowered his voice. “Been out long?”

For once, Li Xiwu didn’t pull away and let him hold her hand. “Only for a while.”

Pei Jingzhou held her hand and walked in. As Li Xiwu followed him, she took the opportunity to withdraw her hand. Pei Jingzhou looked down at his empty palm and did not say anything. Thinking she didn’t like his contact, he suddenly heard her say, “Either let me carry these two dust bags or change your hand.”

Pei Jingzhou immediately understood what she meant. He smiled and changed the two dust bags to carry them in one hand, freeing the other to hold her hand. This time, before he could bend down, Li Xiwu took the initiative to hold his hand. “Isn’t this better?”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “What’s the difference?”

Li Xiwu walked beside him, her voice unintelligible. “The difference between healing faster.”

She was thinking about his injured hand, so she specially asked for another hand to hold. Pei Jingzhou did not reply. Li Xiwu was quietly led by him.

At this moment, Gu Lanshi, who was not far away, quietly looked at Pei Jingzhou, who had just arrived. The other party seemed to have sensed something and looked up in his direction. There was no ripple in either man’s eyes. It was as if he had never known him.

Pei Jingzhou quickly retracted his gaze and held Li Xiwu’s hand as they returned to the inn.

Gu Lanshi also retracted his gaze and looked at Xue Jinzhu. “Miss Xue.”

When Xue Jinzhu heard Gu Lanshi’s voice, she looked away. She looked at Gu Lanshi. “What?”

Gu Lan chuckled softly. “Miss Xue, is there anything you need? I happen to have time now. I can help you prepare it.”

Xue Jinzhu thought about it carefully. She couldn’t bring too much luggage. She just had to bring two thick clothes. There didn’t seem to be anything she needed, so she shook her head. “No.”

At this moment, Tang Xian said, “Was that person just now Xiwu’s lover?”

Xue Jinzhu perked up at the mention of this topic and nodded. “That’s right. That handsome man just now is Sister Li’s husband. He’s been on a variety show before, but it’s only the first two episodes. The two of us haven’t come yet.”

Tang Xian raised her lips. “I know that.”

Xue Jinzhu asked, “Auntie Tang, have you seen Sister Li’s husband before?”

Tang Xian looked at Xue Jinzhu and smiled faintly. “I’ve seen him before, but we haven’t interacted much.”

Xue Jinzhu nodded. She wanted to ask Gu Lanshi, but she remembered that he had already recognized Sister Li as her and had never seen her before, so it was even more impossible for him to have seen President Pei.

So she stopped talking and didn’t ask.

Tang Xian said, “You guys chat first. I’m going in.”

Seeing that Tang Xian had gone in, Xue Jinzhu naturally had no reason to be alone with Gu Lanshi. After all, they were not really a couple. She was quite embarrassed.

When she took a step forward and was about to enter, Gu Lanshi stopped her. “Miss Xue.”

Xue Jinzhu stopped in her tracks. “Huh?”

Gu Lanshi’s expression was calm. “I don’t know much about this variety show.”

Xue Jinzhu: “So…?”

Gu Lanshi turned to look at her with a dark gaze. “Can I ask you some questions?”
