Invite Mr. Pei

Last night? What happened last night? Li Xiwu tried to remember if she had woken up halfway last night and something indescribable had happened between her and Pei Jingzhou. The memory was always blank inside. She began to think about something else. Pei Jingzhou wouldn’t do anything beastly to her while she was sick, right?!

The hand he’d used to tickle her cheek slowly slid down to grip her chin instead. “Do you remember?”

Li Xiwu answered frankly, “No.”

Pei Jingzhou pressed her onto the bed in a familiar manner. He had yet to make his next move, but Li Xiwu already knew that she was afraid. Although such things usually happened naturally in the morning, this was… a hospital. Besides, she still had to record a variety show later. She could not leave any traces on her body.

“Mr. Pei, I was wrong.”


“I was wrong,” she repeated. Although her entire body was stiff, her words were soft. She still gave in to him.

Pei Jingzhou’s fingers stopped on her collarbone. “It seems that you still haven’t remembered.”

“Fourth Brother!” She shouted just in time.

Pei Jingzhou’s eyes were filled with an unclear smile. “Do you remember now?”

Li Xiwu admitted, “I didn’t forget. I was just joking with Fourth Brother.”

Pei Jingzhou felt comfortable hearing her call him Fourth Brother. He grabbed Li Xiwu’s back and helped her up. “Be good.”

Li Xiwu looked at him with sparkling almond-shaped eyes. “What is considered good?”

Pei Jingzhou’s eyes darkened. “You don’t want to leave?”

Li Xiwu deliberately stretched out her delicate hands and placed them on Pei Jingzhou’s chest. Her beautiful lips curled up. “Fourth Brother, you probably won’t argue with a patient.”

Since she mentioned being a patient, Pei Jingzhou’s expression turned ugly. “How reasonable.”

After a while, Li Xiwu also called him Fourth Brother. “When did Qiao Qiao leave?”

Pei Jingzhou asked, “Why didn’t you ask me when I came?”

Li Xiwu said, “Then when did Fourth Brother…”

Pei Jingzhou: “In the middle of the night.”

Li Xiwu: “…” To be honest, she didn’t really believe it for a moment. But she couldn’t show it.

Currently, Li Xiwu’s condition has improved a lot. Her mushroom allergy symptoms happened in her stomach, so the infusion was the best.

Pei Jingzhou brought her to Shengshi Hotel for breakfast. Shengshi Hotel was the number one hotel under the Pei Corporation. Li Xiwu had been here many times and was already familiar with the place.

On the way in with Pei Jingzhou, they met two CEOs who were working with the Pei Corporation. These two CEOs were followed by beautiful young women. They were not secretaries or assistants because proper secretaries and assistants would not walk hand in hand with their CEOs.

In addition, she had followed the boss out of the hotel early in the morning. The rest was self-evident. When the first boss saw Pei Jingzhou, he went forward and greeted him politely.

Pei Jingzhou’s expression was calm as he replied politely.

The lover beside the boss sized up Li Xiwu with an unfriendly gaze. Li Xiwu met the other party’s gaze calmly with the same expression as Pei Jingzhou. The lover thought that the other party was competing with her in terms of aura. At this moment, the CEO beside her greeted her nicely, “Mrs. Pei, we meet again. You look so good today.”

Li Xiwu raised her lips. “Thank you.”

The expression on the lover’s face froze, and all her aura was instantly lost on the word “Mrs. Pei.” She had thought that she was a lover like her. Unexpectedly, she was the legitimate wife. In an instant, the lover lowered her head in shame, not daring to look into Li Xiwu’s eyes again.

Li Xiwu did not take this lover seriously at all. She was not Pei Jingzhou’s lover outside. Of course, even if Pei Jingzhou’s lover outside met her, she would not take it seriously. For example, the last time at the hotel, she could calmly ignore it.

After the boss pulled his lover aside, Pei Jingzhou held Li Xiwu’s hand and went to the hotel restaurant.

The waiter respectfully handed Li Xiwu the menu. “Mrs. Pei.”

Li Xiwu didn’t take it. “Same as before.”

Li Xiwu and Pei Jingzhou had come to eat in the restaurant of Shengshi Hotel a few times. The waiter had also served the two of them many times. He knew that Mrs. Pei liked to eat Cantonese breakfast, and Mr. Pei’s taste was the same as Mrs. Pei’s.

While they waited, Li Xiwu began to deal with work. Pei Jingzhou was also on the phone. The couple seemed to be extremely busy. After settling a small problem with Ji Weiling’s new scene, Ji Weiling sent her a voice message. For a moment, Li Xiwu forgot that she had set the speaker on. She clicked on—

[Miss Li ~ I love you ~ You have to always love me, okay ~ Always ~ ]

Ji Weiling’s soft voice was very soft. After the voice was enlarged by the speaker, it entered Li Xiwu’s ears especially clearly and Pei Jingzhou’s ears opposite her.

Li Xiwu was stunned for a few seconds. As if sensing something, she looked up at Pei Jingzhou, who was sitting opposite her. After seeing Pei Jingzhou’s gaze, she coughed awkwardly and explained, “It’s Ji Weiling.”

Pei Jingzhou’s gaze just now seemed to have already convicted her of having an affair with another woman behind his back. So she explained who had sent the voice message.

Buzz. Buzz. Ji Weiling sent two more voice messages in a row. Li Xiwu turned off the speaker and pressed the phone to her ear to hear what Ji Weiling said.

[Miss Li, focus on recording your mother and daughter-in-law’s variety show. The busier you are, the better. Don’t worry. I will listen to you and work hard during this period. I will definitely not be gluttonous on set. I will definitely not stay up late at night. I will definitely be your most outstanding baby.]

Li Xiwu: “…”

If President Qi had not sent her a message early this morning, she would have been confused by Ji Weiling’s words.

Before she entered the industry, the first person she brought up was Xie Wen. In just two years, she had raised Xie Wen to the position of the number one celebrity in Hua Guan, becoming the fastest money tree in Hua Guan in recent years.

After that, because of the matter of giving birth, Hua Guan gave up on Xie Wen. Ji Weiling’s management contract was signed with Li Xiwu. In just a year, Li Xiwu helped Ji Weiling win the Best Supporting Actress Award with a drama.

Now that there were many resources in Hua Guan, but the newcomers were always not very outstanding, President Qi signed a group of newcomers from the Drama Academy into the company. Currently, President Qi’s intention was for her to bring another newcomer while taking care of Ji Weiling.

This newcomer was chosen by President Qi. President Qi had sent her a message this morning, asking her to return to the company to meet this newcomer when she was free. Ji Weiling was clearly afraid that she would fall out of favor after leading a newcomer and feel threatened.

Li Xiwu replied to Ji Weiling, then put down her phone. She looked up and saw Pei Jingzhou looking at her quietly. Her eyes were filled with indifference as she casually cut to the next topic. “Does Fourth Brother know what Mother-in-Law Joy’s first season program has?”

Pei Jingzhou folded his hands and stared at Li Xiwu quietly. After a moment, he slowly said, “I didn’t pay attention.”

Li Xiwu, of course, knew that he wasn’t paying attention. She brought up this topic because she had something to say. “Mother-in-law Joy’s first season is very rich in content. In the future, the daughter-in-law will bring her husband on camera.”

Pei Jingzhou stared at Li Xiwu without blinking. “Are you inviting me or informing me?”
