167 She Went Back Behind Everyone’s Back

Li Xiwu said calmly, “No need.”


“I like peace and quiet. Just like I said.”

Gao Yueban was speechless.

Li Xiwu had looked at her phone just now to see if Pei Jingzhou had called or sent her a WeChat message. She had looked at it carefully, but there were no missed calls or WeChat messages. That meant that Pei Jingzhou did not know yet.

Looking at Gao Yueban, who wanted to say something but hesitated, Li Xiwu said, “If the car accident can’t be suppressed, make it public. But it’s best not to say a word about my injury last night.”

Gao Yueban didn’t understand. “Why?”

Li Xiwu: “Ever since Xie Wen’s incident, the words ‘Li Xiwu’ have been receiving a lot of attention online. I don’t want to see netizens think that I’m maintaining a persona, nor do I want to receive too much attention. After all, after the variety show ended, I’m still that ordinary person.”

At this point, Gao Yueban naturally understood what Li Xiwu meant. However, Gao Yueban always felt that this was too unfair to Li Xiwu.

Just as Gao Yueban was about to persuade her again, Li Xiwu looked up at Gao Yueban. “Director Gao, sorry to trouble you.”

Gao Yueban held back what he wanted to say. In the end, he sighed silently. “Miss Li, you’re welcome. Don’t worry, we’ll do as you say.”

Li Xiwu nodded. Not long after Gao Yueban and Yu Jing left the ward, Ding Wei and Ah Yue left the ward one after another. If everyone stayed here, it would affect Li Xiwu’s rest. After all, Li Xiwu needed to rest after a moderate concussion.

Meanwhile, in another large ward.

Min Hanrong was telling Tang Xian and the others about the car accident last night. Xiang Lan broke out in a cold sweat for them. Xu Muzhen’s heart skipped a beat when she heard this and she shouted, “That was close!”

Tang Xian sighed when she heard that. “That’s why I said that you’re lucky.”

Min Hanrong said, “I think it’s because the incense offerings are good.”

As soon as she finished speaking, Gao Yueban and Yu Jing walked in. Seeing that Tang Xian, Xiang Lan, and Xu Muzhen were all here, Gao Yueban greeted them and asked, “You’re all down. Is the snow on the road thick? Did it go smoothly down the mountain?”

Tang Xian looked up. “A car took that road first this morning, so we came down smoothly.”

Gao Yueban nodded. “That’s good.”

He was still worried that the snow would seal the mountain this morning and prevent them from going down. Next, Gao Yueban asked everyone about their situation with concern before getting down to business.

After hearing Gao Yueban’s serious tone, Xue Jinzhu was the first to speak. “I insisted on leaving this time. It has nothing to do with the production team. I don’t want to hear those people on the Internet scold me for causing trouble. Anyway, this is my attitude. As for the rest, ask them.”

Between pretentious and embarrassing, Xue Jinzhu naturally chose the former. The latter was too embarrassing. If she hadn’t insisted on leaving, this wouldn’t have happened.

Gao Yueban thought that Xue Jinzhu would be the hardest to talk to. He did not expect that pride was indeed more important.

After receiving Xue Jinzhu’s thoughts, Gao Yueban looked at Min Hanrong and Tao Jing.

Tao Jing pursed her lips, her voice still a little weak. “I thought the same as Xue Jinzhu. After all, the production team didn’t ask us to leave this time. We wanted to leave ourselves. Anyway, it’s not a big deal, so we won’t make an announcement.”

With that, there was silence for a few seconds.

Then, Min Hanrong said in a neutral tone, “Let’s leave it at that. It’s indeed not good to make it online. There are still two episodes left. We have to finish recording steadily, right?”

Gao Yueban came with trepidation. He was already prepared to be scolded, but he did not expect everyone to reach an agreement.

Before Gao Yueban could be happy for a few seconds, Xue Jinzhu suddenly sat up and asked, “Director Gao, where’s Sister Li? When is she coming?”

The smile on Gao Yueban’s face froze. He glanced sideways at Yu Jing, who was also unable to smile halfway. Yu Jing received Gao Yueban’s gaze and quickly cleared his throat. He said for Gao Yueban, “Miss Li… has already gone back first.”

As soon as she said this, everyone stared at Yu Jing.

Yu Jing panicked and explained, “Miss Li left in a hurry because she had something very important to deal with, so she couldn’t come over to tell everyone.”

Han Qianye, who had been quiet for a long time, suddenly stood up. “Is she really gone?”

Yu Jing felt his scalp tingle. “Yes.”

Han Qianye sat back down expressionlessly. “I understand.”

Yu Jing felt very upset. He felt really guilty for lying. However, Miss Li’s instructions were still around his ears. He gritted his teeth and swallowed the words he wanted to say.

Tang Xian said at the right time, “Xiwu is already very busy with work. When she was recording the show previously, she could still go back at night to deal with other work matters. This time, she stayed at Mount Liang for two days and couldn’t deal with work matters. It’s probably a very necessary job that made her so anxious to rush back.”

Xiang Lan immediately added, “Yes, it must be something very important at work. She needs to go back and deal with it as soon as possible.”

No one else said anything.

Gao Yueban was worried that he would not be able to help but tell the truth. After saying what he needed to say, he quickly called Yu Jing to leave with him.

The huge ward was deserted again.

Han Qianye sat in the chair without saying a word. Her expression did not look good.

Min Hanrong took a sip of water and cleared her throat with emotion. “It did not happen to her. It’s normal to be indifferent.” Tao Jing gently tugged at Min Hanrong’s sleeve, indicating for her not to say that. Min Hanrong did not say anything unpleasant. She sighed and said, “I was just sighing. I didn’t say anything.”

Xue Jinzhu said angrily, “Who are you being sarcastic to? Didn’t you see Sister Li rushing over last night? Didn’t you see her help shine the light at the front?”

Min Hanrong choked. “I didn’t say anything. What kind of tone is that?”

Xue Jinzhu straightened her neck. “I was born with that tone.”

Min Hanrong chuckled. “Qianye didn’t even say anything. Did she tell you when she left?”

Xue Jinzhu: “…”

Min Hanrong knew her limits when she said these words. She knew that she could not offend Han Qianye, but she understood her expression.

Especially when Han Qianye found out that Li Xiwu had left first, her face was as black as the bottom of a pot. It was as ugly as it could be. When she said that just now, Han Qianye did not say anything, which meant that Han Qianye was very angry. She just did not show it because of her mother-in-law’s identity.

Xue Jinzhu was angered by Min Hanrong. She turned to the silent Han Qianye and said, “Auntie Han, look at how she speaks. Sister Li has something to settle first. Is there a problem? Who doesn’t have something urgent?”

At this moment, Han Qianye stood up. “You guys chat. I’m out for breakfast.”

With that, Han Qianye left the ward expressionlessly.

Xue Jinzhu: “…”

Min Hanrong smiled and thought to herself that it was as she had guessed.

Tang Xian also stood up. “I’ll ask what time the return flight is booked. You guys chat.”

With that, she left the ward.
