151 Li Xiwu Began Investigating What Happened Four Years Ago

Li Xiwu was wiping the corners of her mouth with a tissue. When she heard the makeup artist’s words, she smiled. “Do you think so?”

The makeup artist said, “I didn’t think so. I saw it with my own eyes.” After a pause, the makeup artist added, “If I heard it, I probably wouldn’t believe it so much, but I saw it with my own eyes. There’s no mistake.”

Li Xiwu still only smiled and said nothing.

Because they were going to a poor mountain area, her makeup could not be too bright. It was all plain, and her lip gloss was also a light pink. Such makeup was still unbelievably beautiful on Li Xiwu’s face.

It was almost ten in the morning.

Li Xiwu was about to push her suitcase downstairs. This time, she did not ask Pei Jingzhou when he was leaving. She only said, “Fourth Brother, I’m leaving.”

Pei Jingzhou nodded. As he watched Li Xiwu push her suitcase away, Pei Jingzhou’s vision suddenly blurred. Those memories that had been sealed for a long time became clear again as they entered his mind.

—I’m leaving.

—Wait for me to come back.

—I’ll see you on New Year’s Eve.

When Li Xiwu went downstairs, she remembered Han Qianye’s reminder and took out her mask to put it on.

Gu Lanshi was still downstairs. He saw Li Xiwu wearing a mask from the crowd and stared at her for a moment before looking away.

There were four cars in total.

Tang Xian waved at Gu Lanshi. “Go back early.”

Xue Jinzhu was about to get into the car when Tang Xian pulled her back and hinted at her with her eyes.

Xue Jinzhu reacted and quickly imitated Tang Xian’s gesture and waved at Gu Lanshi. “I’m leaving. Go back early. Don’t miss me too much. Bye~”

Tang Xian: “…”

There was an obvious smile in Gu Lanshi’s eyes. “I wish you all the best.”

Xue Jinzhu threw a passionate flying kiss. “I will~”

Then she hurried to the car.

Tang Xian didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. She quickly got into the car. After that, Xiang Lan and Xu Muzhen got into a car. Immediately after, Min Hanrong and Tao Jing got into a car.

Finally, it was Li Xiwu and Han Qianye.

Before getting into the car, Li Xiwu turned around and looked at Gu Lanshi. When she looked back, she realized that Gu Lanshi was also looking at her, and he had been looking at her for a long time.

Han Qianye noticed that Li Xiwu turned around and met Gu Lanshi’s eyes. She quickly pulled Li Xiwu’s arm. “Get in.”

Li Xiwu looked away and leaned over to get into the car.

The cars heading to the airport had already set off one after another.


Li Xiwu’s phone vibrated. It was a WeChat notification. She opened WeChat. It was a WeChat message from Pei Jingzhou: [Have a safe trip.]

This was the most common blessing and the most sincere.

Li Xiwu typed a reply: [Okay.]

Then she put her phone away.

She glanced sideways at Han Qianye and saw that Han Qianye was also looking at her phone. From her angle, she could barely see that the page of Han Qianye’s phone was a design of a certain jewelry design.

Han Qianye must have planned to customize the necklace recently and was currently looking at the design.

Li Xiwu called out, “Auntie.”

Han Qianye did not look up and only replied with a hum.

Li Xiwu took the opportunity to speak. “I want to ask you something.”

Han Qianye still did not look up. “Ask away.”

Li Xiwu asked directly, “Was Fourth Brother seriously injured once in his early years?”

Regarding this matter, Li Xiwu remained calm and did not ask, but she could not suppress the curiosity in her heart. She wanted to know if Pei Jingzhou had really been seriously injured in his early years.

Han Qianye’s fingertips paused. She turned to Li Xiwu. “Why do you ask?”

Li Xiwu tilted her head and smiled. “I was just asking.”

Han Qianye pursed her lips and took a deep breath, wondering if she should say it. She also wanted to help her son pretend to be miserable, but this misery was for Li You. If she said it, he would not be pretending to be miserable. It would only speed up the divorce between her son and her daughter-in-law.

This was too difficult…

Li Xiwu could tell that Han Qianye was in a difficult position. She wanted to know, but she couldn’t keep asking. However, most of it was indeed because of curiosity.

After hesitating for a moment, she was about to withdraw the topic when Han Qianye suddenly said, “He was seriously injured…”

At the mention of that matter, Han Qianye did not feel too good. She paused for a moment before continuing, “That time, Jingzhou stayed in the ICU for seventeen days before his vital signs stabilized. After he was transferred to the ordinary ward, he stayed for another twenty days before returning home.”

Li Xiwu was ready to know about this. However, when he heard Han Qianye say that Pei Jingzhou was so seriously injured that he had been staying in the ICU for more than half a month, her heart skipped a beat.

Initially, she thought that the injury was probably a little serious, but she definitely did not expect it to be so serious that she would be in the ICU for so long. There was something she remembered. It was said that after living in the ICU for so long, it was often a narrow escape to survive.

Li Xiwu adjusted her unsteady breathing. “When was that?”

Han Qianye stuttered. “Six, seven years ago…”

Li Xiwu’s lips tightened.

Pei Jingzhou was seriously injured. Han Qianye could clearly remember how long he had stayed in the ICU and ordinary wards, but she could not remember if it was six or seven years ago.

Han Qianye stole a glance at Li Xiwu’s expression and could tell that she did not believe her. She also sighed that her lying skills were not good enough. Seven years was seven years. Six years was six years. Why did she say six or seven years?

She could even say clearly that he stayed in the ICU for seventeen days and twenty days in the ordinary ward.

But it was stuck at six or seven years.

Stupid! Han Qianye, you’re so stupid!

“I said six or seven years casually.” Han Qianye smiled. “Actually, it was four years ago.” Before Li Xiwu could speak, Han Qianye quickly added, “I won’t tell you the details. Don’t ask. That was in Jingzhou’s matters. It’s in the past.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “Okay.”

If she said she wouldn’t ask, she really wouldn’t. Li Xiwu was very calm.

After arriving at the airport, they boarded the plane. The location where the production team booked the plane tickets was also next to each other. Li Xiwu and Han Qianye sat together.

Perhaps it was because she woke up early today, Han Qianye was very sleepy. She slept the moment she boarded the plane. Even the U-shaped pillow could not stop her.

Li Xiwu wasn’t sleepy at all. Before the plane took off, she opened her WeChat chat with Qiao Qiao before the Internet was turned off. She typed slowly and sent Qiao Qiao a WeChat message: [I just got on the plane. I’m going to Mount Liang.]

Qiao Qiao replied to Li Xiwu’s WeChat quickly: [Have a safe trip. Send me a message when you land.]

Li Xiwu replied: [Okay.]

Qiao Qiao sent another cute emoji.

Li Xiwu stared at the emoji pack for a long time. At this moment, she should have turned off her phone in flight mode. After thinking for dozens of seconds, she typed another line of words and sent it to Qiao Qiao: [Ask your friend to help me check what happened to Pei Jingzhou four years ago.]
