148 Pei Jingzhou: My Wife Is Especially Gentle To Me Today

Gu Lanshi wanted to understand Mother-in-Law Joy’s variety show? Then if he asked Master Tang, wouldn’t she know better than her?!

Xue Jinzhu frowned. “Actually… I suggest you ask Master Tang. She might know more.”

Gu Lanshi’s lips curled up. “This time, your production team arranged to go to Mount Liang to do charity. I’m not sure about the details, and my mother didn’t say much.”

Xue Jinzhu asked, “So you want to know more about the charity we’re doing on Mount Liang?”

Gu Lanshi nodded. “Yes.”

“That works too.” Xue Jinzhu happily cooperated.

When the director had informed her last night, she had listened carefully and could say a thing or two.

However, she and Tang Xian were a combination mother-in-law and daughter-in-law, and Gu Lanshi was Tang Xian’s son. Now that they were also a temporary boyfriend and girlfriend, they had to cooperate.

She was not afraid anymore. On the contrary, Xue Jinzhu was even more curious about Gu Lanshi now. Before Gu Lanshi could ask the question he wanted to know, Xue Jinzhu said, “May I ask what you do?”

Gu Lanshi did not answer immediately. He handed the jacket in his hand to Xue Jinzhu. “It’s a little cold. Put on this winter coat.”

Xue Jinzhu took it without hesitation, but she did not wear it. She was born to love beauty. Other than casually taking care of her beauty when she was alone, as long as there was someone around, she would maintain her beautiful side.

This winter coat was very thick. She would look fat with this one and affect her beauty. She hugged the winter coat and repeated what she’d just said. “You haven’t told me what you do for a living.”

Gu Lanshi smiled. “Miss Xue, you didn’t read the script?”

Xue Jinzhu was stunned for a few seconds. Ever since she entered the variety show, she had never seriously read the script. But she couldn’t admit that she really hadn’t looked, so she wasn’t going to ask again.

Just as she was about to brush this question off, she heard Gu Lanshi say, “Translator.”

Xue Jinzhu’s eyes darted around as she thought to herself, It’s not a very powerful identity! He was just a translator. It was a very common identity. Who said that Master Tang’s son had a powerful background and seemed to be quite a powerful person?!

Gu Lanshi took in Xue Jinzhu’s expression. “Miss Xue, what are you thinking?”

Xue Jinzhu answered, “I don’t believe in rumors.”

Gu Lanshi chuckled. “Miss Xue, do you think I made up a career?”

Xue Jinzhu quickly shook her head. “I-I didn’t think so.” With that, Xue Jinzhu asked, “You just said that you wanted to understand about this trip to Mount Liang to do charity work.”

Gu Lanshi smiled. “Let’s talk inside. It’s too cold outside.”

Xue Jinzhu could not stay outside and wanted to go in. When she heard the other party’s suggestion, she hurriedly nodded.

Li Xiwu brought Pei Jingzhou back to the upper floor of the inn. As soon as she entered the room, Pei Jingzhou grabbed her wrist and pressed her against the wall. The dust bag fell to the ground. He didn’t care. He cupped her face and kissed it. Li Xiwu looked up to accept his gentleness. After a moment, her breathing was a little ragged.

After calming her breathing a little, her expression changed. “I thought Fourth Brother was joking last night. I didn’t think you would come today.”

His palm slid behind her ear, the pad of his finger caressing the mastoid bone behind her ear. “You don’t trust me that much?”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows at him. “I do.”

The word fell. Pei Jingzhou’s kiss landed at the same time. This time, she didn’t know how much time had passed.

Li Xiwu’s breathing became even more ragged. It was a mess, and her eyes were misty. She regulated her breathing as his voice rang in her ears. “Do you know the man outside?”

Li Xiwu paused for a moment, then smiled calmly. “There are staff passing by outside and a director who woke up early. I wonder which man Fourth Brother is talking about?”

Pei Jingzhou lowered his head and sucked on Li Xiwu’s lips. Li Xiwu frowned. Her lips hurt a little. No, to be precise, it was a mixture of pain and numbness. She raised her hand to touch her lips and smiled. “I always say that Fourth Brother is a dog, but Fourth Brother doesn’t admit it.”

Pei Jingzhou hugged her waist. “Then you must be a cat. You always scratch ruthlessly.”

Li Xiwu corrected her. “There are no cats in the zodiac.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I didn’t say zodiac. I only said attributes.”

Li Xiwu was speechless. What twisted logic!

Pei Jingzhou had personally found a dust bag to put away the two coats. Before putting them away, he had specially taken care of them. He did not use anyone else’s hands the entire time. After putting them away, he personally drove them over.

Li Xiwu rarely saw Pei Jingzhou drive himself. When she saw him driving again today, he was actually an errand boy who had specially come to deliver clothes. She wanted to laugh but didn’t. She pressed the corners of her lips together.

The two of them talked for a while. At this moment, Pei Jingzhou mentioned Gu Lanshi again. “Have you seen that person?”

Li Xiwu was in a good mood and answered seriously. “I’ve never seen him before, but he feels familiar.” With that, she saw Pei Jingzhou’s jaw tighten and his expression gradually tighten. She frowned. “Does Fourth Brother know him?”

Pei Jingzhou looked at Li Xiwu quietly for a long time before answering, “Yes.”

Pei Jingzhou did not know that Xue Jinzhu’s mother-in-law was Tang Xian. If it was just Tang Xian, it was fine. However, the real reason why Tang Xian was on this variety show was probably not to promote embroidery’s culture, but Gu Lanshi’s arrangement.

Li Xiwu’s appearance on this variety show meant that more and more people were destined to look for her soon.

Li Xiwu looked at Pei Jingzhou’s unpredictable expression and guessed, “Did Fourth Brother have any grudges with Gu Lanshi in the past?”

Pei Jingzhou’s eyes darkened. “There’s a little conflict.”

Li Xiwu said, “Is it convenient to tell me?”

Pei Jingzhou looked at her and smiled. “My wife is especially gentle to me today.”

Li Xiwu’s lips pressed down. “Was I fierce before?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “A little.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

How was she fierce?

Pei Jingzhou looked at her lively expression. “You want to know about my conflict with Gu Lanshi?”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows. She didn’t think Pei Jingzhou would really tell her. So she raised her hand to push him away and bent to pick up her jacket from the dust bag on the floor.

Just as she stood up, Pei Jingzhou’s voice came from behind. “We sparred.”

Li Xiwu’s eyebrows jumped. She turned around and looked at him. “Fourth Brother fought with Gu Lanshi?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Mhm.”

Compared to knowing that the two of them had fought, Li Xiwu wanted to know more. “Did Fourth Brother beat him?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “No.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

When she found out that Pei Jingzhou had fought Gu Lanshi and did not defeat him, Li Xiwu thought meaningfully: Pei Jingzhou actually had times when he could not defeat others…

Pei Jingzhou glanced at Li Xiwu’s expression and knew what she was thinking. There was a dim smile on his lips. “I was a little injured before that. I was at a disadvantage.”

After Li Xiwu analyzed, she said, “A light injury shouldn’t affect Fourth Brother’s performance unless it’s a serious injury…”

Serious injuries…

With that, Li Xiwu was stunned.

When had Pei Jingzhou been seriously injured?
