172 So Pei Jingzhou Has Such a Clingy Side

Han Qianye had already thought it through.

If this was what Li Xiwu wanted, then she would satisfy her and give her money. It wouldn’t be a problem even if it was another 100 million or 200 million. Anyway, she had plenty of money. As long as Li Xiwu was happy.

When she expressed the idea of giving Li Xiwu an extra 200 million, Lin Yourong restrained the smile on her face and was the first to disagree. “Why did you give her so much?”

God knew how happy Lin Yourong was when she heard Han Qianye say that she wanted to end her relationship with Li Xiwu in advance. She tried her best to suppress her crazy smile. In the next second, she heard Han Qianye say that she wanted to give Li Xiwu an additional 200 million!

“200 million! That adds up to 600 million.” Lin Yourong’s face was tense as she said seriously, “Qianye, why are you being such a sucker? Just the 400 million is enough for Li Xiwu to squander for a few lifetimes.”

Han Qianye reasoned, “But Li Xiwu has been married into our Pei family for three years. I can count on my fingers the number of times I’ve seen her in these three years. I’ve never given her a good attitude once. The 400 million is compensation for being the daughter-in-law of the Pei family for three years. The other 200 million is compensation for her as an incompetent mother-in-law.”

Lin Yourong was furious. But she couldn’t show all her anger. Hence, she tried to persuade her in another way. “Qianye, you’re born to be soft-hearted. If others treat you a little better, you think they’re extremely good. Don’t forget that you’re on a variety show this time. How can she not treat you well in front of tens of thousands of viewers? She also cares about her reputation, okay? What she did was just for show. In fact, you don’t know how she scolds you for being pretentious behind your back.”

Han Qianye asked with a long face, “Am I pretentious?”

Lin Yourong was embarrassed. She said a bunch of logic, but Han Qianye caught the last sentence.

Lin Yourong put down her coffee cup and moved over a little. She smiled awkwardly and said, “It’s not pretentious. I was wrong just now. It’s just that as wealthy ladies, we’re always more noble than those country bumpkins. However, in those people’s eyes, they think we’re not easy to get along with.”

Han Qianye looked at Lin Yourong. “Country bumpkins? Which one of them isn’t from the countryside generations ago? Do you look down on country bumpkins?”

She asked three consecutive questions. Lin Yourong was stunned.

Han Qianye was in a bad mood and stopped the conversation. “Alright, don’t persuade me anymore. Anyway, I’ve already thought it through. I’ll give Li Xiwu 600 million yuan. From now on, we’ll go our separate ways. As long as she’s doing well, it’s fine.”

Lin Yourong knew that nothing she said could change Han Qianye’s decision. She was also afraid that she would be annoyed, so she stopped the topic. She took the opportunity to mention something else. “Qianye, do you remember that Huanhuan wanted to customize clothes for you? We happen to have time today. Why don’t we go to Huanhuan’s studio now?”

Of course Han Qianye remembered. For this matter, she had already stood up on the young lady once. She raised her hand to her wristwatch. It was almost four-thirty. “Let’s go, then.”

Night had just fallen.

Li Xiwu nestled on the pumpkin sofa in front of the French windows to take a call from Ding Wei. When she came back today, she deliberately said goodbye to Ding Wei and Ah Yue and asked for Ding Wei’s number.

Ah Yue couldn’t bear to part with her. Apart from a few words from Ding Wei at first, Ah Yue was the one talking to her. The awkward Mandarin was mixed with a local accent, so Ah Yue spoke slowly, afraid she wouldn’t understand.

Actually, after interacting with Ah Yue, she could understand his words. As he spoke, Ah Yue’s tone gradually became choked.

Li Xiwu was silent for a moment before saying slowly, “Ah Yue, live well. If you can walk out of the mountain, you must walk out of the mountain.”

Ah Yue agreed. “Okay, Sis.”

Li Xiwu was slightly stunned when she heard this. If she remembered correctly, at Ah Yue’s place, being called Sister was a polite way of addressing guests her age. Sis was what he called his biological sister.

Ah Yue treated her as his biological sister.

After ending the call, Li Xiwu was silent for a long time. After composing herself, she began to deal with the work messages on WeChat.

Not long after, Pei Jingzhou came to call her. “It’s time to eat.”

Li Xiwu agreed without looking up, then continued to reply to work messages. As she replied, her phone suddenly disappeared. When she looked up, the phone was already in Pei Jingzhou’s hand. The next second, it entered Pei Jingzhou’s pocket.

He said, “Time to eat.”

Li Xiwu said, “There are still two unanswered work messages.”

Pei Jingzhou was unmoved. “Let’s eat first.”

After looking at each other for a moment, Li Xiwu finally compromised. Tonight, Pei Jingzhou cooked very lightly.

Someone like Li Xiwu, who loved spicy food, had never had much of an appetite for food that was too light. Perhaps most patients had the same mentality. The more injured they were, the more they wanted to eat something that stimulated their taste buds.

She got up, wanting to go to the kitchen and get a jar of her own hot sauce.

Pei Jingzhou saw through her intentions. “The doctor said to avoid all food that stimulates your taste buds.”

Li Xiwu tried to negotiate. “Is a little okay?”

Pei Jingzhou looked up at her and rejected her mercilessly. “Not at all.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

After returning from the county hospital in Mount Liang, Pei Jingzhou was worried and brought her to the hospital in the capital. She did a thorough checkup. Other than the wound on her head, there were no other problems.

The doctor had specially instructed her not to eat food that stimulated her taste buds during her recuperation.

Li Xiwu sighed. “Not even the hot sauce I made?”

Pei Jingzhou was still unmoved. “No.”

Li Xiwu muttered softly, “I should have returned to the small courtyard.”

Pei Jingzhou picked up some vegetables for her. “Do you have a misunderstanding about me?”

Li Xiwu was stunned. “Huh?”

Just as she thought that Pei Jingzhou was about to say something serious, Pei Jingzhou said, “You mistakenly thought that I was deaf.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

Although the dinner was tasteless, Li Xiwu did not let Pei Jingzhou worry too much because he had been working for the entire night. However, Pei Jingzhou probably really took care of her like a child. He would follow her wherever she went.

Like a little tail.

This was also the first time Li Xiwu felt that Pei Jingzhou had such a clingy side. Moreover, he gave her a legitimate explanation. “I’m afraid that you’ll fall if you’re not careful. I won’t be able to discover it immediately.”

Li Xiwu smiled. “Am I a child?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “In my eyes you are.”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows. “It seems that Fourth Brother likes to take care of children.”

Pei Jingzhou suddenly asked her, “Do you like children?”

Li Xiwu said truthfully, “I like it.”

She liked it, but that didn’t mean she wanted to have one herself. Other children were little angels that could heal everything. If she had one with Pei Jingzhou, it would be a burden.

After all, it was the Pei family’s bloodline. In terms of final custody, even with the law in front of her, she might not be able to compete with the Pei family.

As she thought this, her chin was suddenly lifted.

When their eyes met, Pei Jingzhou said in a low voice, “In the future, let’s adopt a child.”
