155 Pei Jingzhou: “I’m Jealous. I Can’t Stand Seeing You So Happy.”

Pei Jingzhou looked up. “Assistant Chen seems to be in a good mood.”

Chen Xin smiled cautiously. “Hehe, it’s alright.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Is that so?”

Chen Xin scratched his ears and said in embarrassment, “I’ll indeed be very happy to be missed by my girlfriend all the time.”

Pei Jingzhou: “…”

After Chen Xin finished speaking, he realized that he had said too much. Miss Li probably did not take a photo of the snow for Mr. Pei. Moreover, not only did she not take a photo, but she might not even have called him.

However, he had imperceptibly pierced Mr. Pei’s heart!

It’s over!

Being in love was really dizzying.

Pei Jingzhou lowered his eyes and picked up the report again. His voice was cold. “Assistant Chen is conscientious. You’re still thinking about returning to the company to work overtime at this time. I’m very relieved to have an employee like Assistant Chen.”

Chen Xin had nothing to live for. “Mr. Pei, I was wrong…”

Pei Jingzhou turned a page of the report. “Assistant Chen, I just asked if you were in a good mood. How did you answer?”

Chen Xin was nervous. “It’s-It’s alright.”

Pei Jingzhou’s lips twitched. “I’m jealous. I can’t stand to see you so happy.”

Chen Xin: “…”

The driver, who was driving, almost suffered internal injuries from holding back his laughter. His face was almost twisted.

Don’t laugh, don’t laugh. He mustn’t laugh, or he’ll be the next one to suffer!

Pei Jingzhou was a man of his word. In the end, Chen Xin complained about his boss’s dictatorship while returning to the company to work overtime. However, when he thought about this month’s salary and the fact that he had to support his girlfriend, he started working!

Pei Jingzhou returned to Lake Lu.

After coming out of the bathroom wrapped in a bathrobe, he went to the wine cabinet to get a bottle of red wine and went to the audiovisual room. The flickering light on the curtain shone on him. From time to time, he glanced at his phone, which was lying on the armrest. After what seemed like an eternity, the phone page finally lit up.

Pei Jingzhou immediately took the phone.

Seeing the caller ID on the screen, Pei Jingzhou sighed and picked it up.

Pei Jiao’s voice came from the phone. “Brother! I’m here for business!!”

Pei Jingzhou narrowed his eyes at the curtain. “You want to make money from me?”

Pei Jiao said, “Hehe.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Tell me.”

Just from the voice, one could tell that Pei Jiao was excited. “God of Fortune, someone wants to investigate you and offered a good price. I’m quite tempted. Look, do you want to spend some money to intercept this news?”

Pei Jingzhou: “Intercept?”

Pei Jiao said, “In layman’s terms, hush money.”

Pei Jingzhou raised his eyebrows. “Investigate me for what?”

Pei Jiao smiled brightly. “To investigate what happened to you four years ago.”

Pei Jingzhou was silent. Pei Jiao could not say much about who wanted to investigate. She had already done something without professionalism. She could not do anything shameless. In any case, whoever gave the most would just have to do the job.

Therefore, how could Pei Jiao let go of her brother, the God of Fortune?

Pei Jiao asked with a smile, “Brother, have you thought about how much money you want to use to intercept it?” Before Pei Jingzhou could say anything, Pei Jiao said considerately, “We’re all family. Brother, don’t worry. I won’t cheat you.”

Pei Jingzhou sneered. “So you know what I experienced four years ago?”

Back then, when he returned from Country T and was hospitalized in the ICU, the doctor had even given a notice of critical illness. It was not a secret in the Pei family, but only Mr. and Mrs. Pei knew what he had experienced in Country T and how he was seriously injured.

Pei Jiao raised her voice confidently. “Don’t underestimate me. Of course I know.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Tell me about it.”

When Pei Jiao said it accurately, the smile on Pei Jingzhou’s lips disappeared. “What else do you know?”

Pei Jiao smiled ingratiatingly. “Brother, I usually listen to others and never investigate this. This time, someone asked me for help, so I investigated. To be honest, I didn’t know about it before.”

Pei Jingzhou’s voice became stern. “I asked you what else you know.”

Pei Jiao was shocked and stammered, “About how you got injured.”

What was going on? She hadn’t even asked for a price, but the God of Fortune had turned on her. She was so frightened that her tongue was tied in knots. Even though she was frightened to death, she could not forget to ask for money.

Pei Jiao mustered her courage. “Brother? Brother? If you want me to intercept it, I’ll reject this order. If you don’t intercept it, I’ll take the order.”

In the past, Pei Jiao would take the order with money after seeing it. This time, when she saw that the person she was investigating was her biological brother, she was a little more cautious. Instead of taking the order directly, she called her brother first.

Reporting was the main thing. Next, of course, was money. The God of Fortune was a little fierce, but he gave a lot.

When she did not hear Pei Jingzhou’s voice, Pei Jiao became a little anxious. “Brother, say something. If you don’t say anything, I’ll accept it.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I’m not intercepting it.”

Pei Jiao was very disappointed. “Are you really not going to stop me? Brother, do you want to reconsider?”

Pei Jingzhou held his phone in his other hand and said in a low voice, “I’ll transfer you five million yuan later. You’re not allowed to investigate this matter further. If I find out that you took my money but went against my wishes, don’t even think about having pocket money for the next three years.”

When Pei Jiao heard five million yuan, the smile on her lips gradually became impudent. When she heard that she could forget about having pocket money for three years, the smile on her lips froze.

Three years?

Three years??

What was so serious that he had to stop her pocket money for three years?!

Pei Jiao took a deep breath. A gentleman loved money. For the sake of endless pocket money in the future, she would never touch her brother’s reverse scale. Fortunately, she was not curious. If she’d been more focused on her curiosity in the matter four years ago, she would be crying now.

As if afraid that Pei Jingzhou would go back on his word, Pei Jiao quickly agreed. “Then let’s put it this way. I’ll earn both sides’ money. God of Fortune, you’re not allowed to go back on your word.”

Pei Jingzhou hung up. When Pei Jiao heard the busy tone on the phone, she almost couldn’t suppress the excitement in her heart. She told herself first, “Calm down! Calm down! It won’t be too late to laugh when the five million is transferred.”

Just as she finished, her phone beeped with a text message. Pei Jiao picked up her phone with trembling hands and opened it. A five-million-yuan remittance message appeared in front of her!

The next second, Pei Jiao threw her phone and shouted excitedly, “I’m rich, I’m rich! I’m rich!”

It was already 10:30 pm.

In the big room of the village club’s office, Li Xiwu and Han Qianye slept on the same wooden bed.

The blanket was quite thick, and it was a bed with two blankets. It was completely enough.

Han Qianye wrapped herself tightly in the blanket and tossed and turned. She could not fall asleep no matter what. She wanted to get up, but the coldness that poured in when she lifted the blanket made her flinch. She shivered and lay back down obediently.

Li Xiwu lay quietly. The movements of Han Qianye tossing and turning were infinitely magnified. This situation lasted for about half an hour. At almost 10:30, Li Xiwu suddenly said, “Can’t you sleep?”

Han Qianye, who was moving under the blanket, immediately stopped moving.

After a long moment, she said awkwardly, “I… want to go to the toilet.”
