Pei Jingzhou Is So Good To You

Li Xiwu raised her lips in response. “It depends on how Fourth Brother interprets that.”

She knew very well that a big shot in the business world like Pei Jingzhou, who was famous in the entire capital, would not agree to record a variety show with her. Moreover, he would appear in front of the public in such a way.

Obviously, that wasn’t realistic.

Although Li Xiwu knew that he would not go, she had to let him know. If the production team asked, Pei Jingzhou would send someone to settle this matter first. She didn’t have to think of a reason to say anything. She could just film the show in peace.

Pei Jingzhou looked at her in confusion. “Why did you insist on recording this variety show?” The implication was, what good would it do her?

As the number one of the media company now, she was busy leading rising celebrities and planning their acting paths. She was busy endorsing celebrities and flying around several cities. She was so busy, but she actually agreed to film a variety show with Han Qianye.

Li Xiwu probably didn’t expect Pei Jingzhou to suddenly ask this. “There’s a fee for being on the show. It’s more than what I earn from running for a month. Why not?”

“Money again.”


Pei Jingzhou raised his chin slightly. “Did you go to the Haojiang Casino behind my back and become poor? Why are you so short of money recently?”

She just wanted to get a considerable amount of divorce property from Han Qianye. Gambling? She would never touch gambling and drugs in her life. Porn is counted separately.

After two or three seconds of silence, she offered another explanation. “I want to be more tired. It would be more fulfilling.”

She thought there was nothing wrong with her explanation. But to Pei Jingzhou, it sounded like another matter. “In other words, you aren’t tired enough so you can’t sense the sense of fulfillment?”

Li Xiwu still didn’t think there was anything wrong with this. She answered, “Yes.”

As she finished speaking, Pei Jingzhou raised his hand and pointed upwards. Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows, not understanding the gesture. But she soon understood, because Pei Jingzhou said, “Go back to Lake Lu or go up. Your choice.”

There was no need to say anything else. Li Xiwu immediately understood what he meant. She cleared her throat. “I just got out of the hospital. I was hoping Fourth Brother would be humane.”

“Li Xiwu, why are your words so incoherent? Just now, you said that you weren’t tired enough and didn’t have a sense of fulfillment.” Pei Jingzhou’s casual tone reminded her.

She’d clearly said that work wasn’t tiring or fulfilling enough. But how could she have known that these words would become another meaning in Pei Jingzhou’s eyes?

This breakfast did not take long. The phone beside her hand kept vibrating. It was a call from Qiao Qiao. Li Xiwu couldn’t pick it up, mainly because it wasn’t convenient to talk to Qiao Qiao in front of Pei Jingzhou.

Li Xiwu stood up. “Fourth Brother, I’ll go over first.”

Pei Jingzhou was indifferent and did not look at her. When Li Xiwu was about to walk past him, Pei Jingzhou stopped her. “Return to Lake Lu tonight. I’ll send someone to pick you up.”

Li Xiwu knew what returning to Lake Lu meant. “Not tonight,” she said. “Maybe tomorrow night.” She guessed that Pei Jingzhou might not agree. She would find another excuse when the time came.

However, the usually autocratic Pei Jingzhou actually replied, “Up to you.” With that, he stood up and buttoned the front of his abdomen. He raised his hand to look at his watch and reminded Li Xiwu before he left, “Remember to go home when you’re done playing.”

With that, he left.

Li Xiwu quietly watched Pei Jingzhou leave. For a moment, her emotions were in turmoil. Apart from not really loving her, Pei Jingzhou was really outstanding in all aspects.

And she had almost lost herself because of this man. She had even thought of completely replacing that first love and staying by his side forever. She would not make a fuss and spend the rest of her life with him in peace.

Now, whether it was the deadline of the agreement or the appearance of other women around him, they were all reminding Li Xiwu not to be stupid.

Getting out as soon as possible was her safest way out.

Yes, she must get out as soon as possible.

She left the Shengshi Hotel.

Li Xiwu got into the car that had been arranged by Pei Jingzhou to take her to Fu Town. She took the opportunity to call Qiao Qiao back. Qiao Qiao asked her anxiously, “Did Pei Jingzhou do anything to you?”

Instead of answering, Li Xiwu asked, “What time did you leave last night?”

“Speaking of that!” Qiao Qiao sighed. “Not long after I brought you to the hospital last night, you fainted. I even prepared a bed to sleep beside you. Who knew that Pei Jingzhou would call you at this time?”

At that time, Li Xiwu was in a coma.

Qiao Qiao looked at the vibrating phone and was a little afraid. She hesitated for a long time before answering. She wanted to hide it, but before she could say anything, she took the initiative to tell Pei Jingzhou about the hospital where Li Xiwu was, including her condition.

Qiao Qiao’s bitter voice said, “My mouth is useless in front of a capitalist.”

Li Xiwu soothed her. “Who isn’t?”

Qiao Qiao felt the comfort Li Xiwu gave her. Thinking about what she had seen with her own eyes last night, she reminded Li Xiwu, “To be honest, there really isn’t anything to say about how well Pei Jingzhou treats you.”

Li Xiwu didn’t understand the cause of her words. “Huh?”

Qiao Qiao passed on what she had seen last night to Li Xiwu. “You didn’t know since you were unconscious. A few minutes after I used your phone to answer Pei Jingzhou’s call last night, he came to the hospital. Without a word, he changed you to a separate ward and carried you over personally. After that, he chased me away. At first, I was worried. What would happen to you if I left? Pei Jingzhou said that he would guard you all night. He… didn’t really guard you all night, did he?”

Li Xiwu: “…”

When Qiao Qiao didn’t hear Li Xiwu’s reply, she knew she’d hit the nail on the head.

“This Pei Jingzhou is really good to you,” she said with a sigh.

Although Li Xiwu did not reply just now, it did not mean that she was not awake. Her voice was much lighter than before. “He has been very good to me for the past three years.”

It was only when she reached the entrance to Fu Town that Li Xiwu ended the call with Qiao Qiao. When she got out of the car and went in, she happened to see Tao Jing.

Tao Jing was surprised to see Li Xiwu. She asked worriedly, “Miss Li, why are you here?”

Li Xiwu guessed that she probably knew and pretended not to be on the same channel. “What’s wrong?”

Tao Jing said with concern, “I heard from Director Gao that you were hospitalized last night. Are you feeling better?”

Li Xiwu beamed. “I’m fine, thanks for asking.”

Tao Jing said, “You’re already in the hospital. How can you be fine? Seriously, you have to tell me in advance that you’re allergic to mushrooms. What if the situation is serious? Come in quickly. My mother-in-law made breakfast. Let’s eat together.”

Li Xiwu wanted to say that she had already eaten breakfast, but Tao Jing had already invited her, so she agreed. “Thank you.”

“Don’t mention it. We’re all filming together.”

Tao Jing took the initiative to take Li Xiwu’s hand and they walked in side by side. Just as they were about to step through the threshold, they bumped into Han Qianye again. The two of them met. Li Xiwu simply said good morning.

Han Qianye did not look very comfortable. She did not know what to say, so she reached out to Li Xiwu first.

Li Xiwu looked at Han Qianye’s outstretched hand and did not understand what she meant for a moment. She heard Han Qianye say in an uncomfortable tone, “It’s early in the morning. It’s cold outside. Come in quickly.”
