174 Han Qianye Knew the Truth

In order not to waste Han Qianye’s time, Li Xiwu closed the fridge and walked over. She sat down opposite her. “Auntie, go ahead.”

Han Qianye opened her bag and took out a check. The check had been filled in with numbers: six hundred million.

Li Xiwu had good eyesight and could tell at a glance that the one Han Qianye had just taken out of her bag was a check. She could guess what was going to happen next, so she was also prepared to reach out and take the check at any time. She waited for Han Qianye to hand it to her.

Han Qianye cleared her throat. “After coming back from Mount Liang this time, I thought about it seriously and felt that it was not good to continue like this.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips.

Han Qianye looked at Li Xiwu’s reaction and sighed in her heart. In the end, she could not bear to part with her.

However, she knew that no matter how reluctant she was, this mother-in-law and daughter-in-law relationship had reached its end. Just as Rongrong had said, a large part of the reason why Li Xiwu was accommodating and good to her was because she was recording a show. Everything was acting and there was no real emotion.

Since all she wanted was money, she would give her money.

The sooner they divorced, the better.

Han Qianye slowly reached out and handed over the check in her hand. “This is my…”

Ding dong.

Ding dong.

Ding dong.

There was a sudden urgent ring at the door.

Before Han Qianye could finish, she changed the topic. “Who’s here?”

Li Xiwu stared at the check in Han Qianye’s hand. “It’s fine. Don’t worry about it for now. Are you going to give me this?” She was already holding out her hand when she asked.

Han Qianye retracted her hand. “Go and see who’s here first.”

Li Xiwu’s hand froze in midair. Seeing that Han Qianye had taken the check back, she took a deep breath and said helplessly, “Okay, I’ll go take a look first.”

Han Qianye stood up with her. “Which way is the bathroom?”

Li Xiwu pointed. “That way. Just turn around.”

Han Qianye nodded and walked over. When Li Xiwu went to open the door, her mind was filled with the check she had just glimpsed from the corner of her eye. The number with the caption seemed to be… six?


600 million?

Aye, she couldn’t think too well of it yet. What if it was 60 million yuan? It was also possible that Han Qianye planned to give it to her in installments. With that thought in mind, she opened the door.

Qiao Qiao was standing outside the door with a cake and a pile of food. When she saw Li Xiwu open the door, she raised her hands. “Clang, clang, clang! Bae, look, I brought you something delicious.”

Li Xiwu’s eyebrows jumped. An ominous feeling rose in her heart. She bent down and took out her slippers from the shoe cabinet. She placed them in front of Qiao Qiao and reached out to take the things she was holding.

Qiao Qiao quickly changed into her shoes. “It’s quite heavy. Don’t take it. I’ll do it.”

Qiao Qiao had come to Lake Lu many times. Every time, she would come when Pei Jingzhou was not around. Qiao Qiao was still quite afraid of Pei Jingzhou, afraid that she would meet him again.

But this time, she had to come. Her good friend was injured. No matter how afraid she was of Pei Jingzhou, she would have to overcome it. So she came over timidly. As she walked inside, Qiao Qiao hunched her neck and looked around.

Li Xiwu walked behind and smiled. “Qiao’er, do you know what you look like?”

Qiao Qiao placed everything on the bar before replying. “I know. Like a thief.”

Li Xiwu’s smile widened. “Indeed.”

Qiao Qiao sighed. “You’re still laughing. Do you know how much courage I mustered to come here today?”

Li Xiwu played along. “How brave?”

Qiao Qiao waved her hand. “Forget it. It took me half an hour just to mentally prepare myself before I went out.”

Li Xiwu asked, “Is it possible that Pei Jingzhou isn’t at home?”

Qiao Qiao’s expression froze for a few seconds. A few seconds later, she straightened her back and walked towards the sofa. As she walked, she said, “You’re so seriously injured this time. I thought Pei Jingzhou would stay at home with you. So I was thinking too much. If I had known, I would have come earlier.”

A waste of that half an hour of mental preparation.

Li Xiwu quickly went forward and reminded Qiao Qiao, “Keep your voice down.”

Qiao Qiao’s expression stiffened. “Is Pei Jingzhou at home?”

Li Xiwu shook her head. “No, he…”

She was about to say something when Qiao Qiao suddenly reached out and removed the fisherman’s hat from Li Xiwu’s head. “Why are you still wearing a hat at home? Doesn’t the inner edge of the hat press down on the wound? You can’t do this. Be good. You can wear the hat again when you’ve recovered.”

Li Xiwu could only signal Qiao Qiao with her eyes. Normally, Qiao Qiao understood what Li Xiwu meant when she saw her eyes. However, after Qiao Qiao took off her hat, she was so focused on the design of the hat that she didn’t notice Li Xiwu’s gaze.

After looking at the style of the hat, Qiao Qiao said, “No wonder you wear a hat at home. This hat is indeed unique.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

Qiao Qiao put her hat aside and went forward to hold Li Xiwu’s face. “Don’t move, Bae. Let me take a look at your wound.”

Li Xiwu didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “The gauze is on. You can’t see it.”

Qiao Qiao said, “Why did you hurt yourself like this for that old kerosene barrel? Fortunately, it’s above your hairline. A little more and you’d be disfigured.”

Li Xiwu quickly covered Qiao Qiao’s mouth.

Qiao Qiao thought that Li Xiwu thought she was being too emotional, but she couldn’t stop herself from saying it. She pried Li Xiwu’s hand away and said, “Put yourself first in everything. Take it that I’m begging you, bae. Don’t always be so reckless. If you had been a little more unlucky back then…”

Li Xiwu continued to cover Qiao Qiao’s mouth.

Qiao Qiao was stronger than Li Xiwu. She pried it open and finished speaking. “If you’re any more unlucky, you won’t exist in this world.”

Li Xiwu said in a low voice, “Alright, Qiao’er.”

Qiao Qiao was unconvinced. “You’re not letting me say it. I’m just angry that you almost lost your life looking for Han Qianye. Don’t be so stupid in the future.”

This time, it was too late for Li Xiwu to cover Qiao Qiao’s mouth.

As Qiao Qiao finished speaking, not far behind her, Han Qianye’s puzzled voice sounded. “What are you talking about?”

The unexpected sound made Qiao Qiao jump. Qiao Qiao looked up and saw Han Qianye standing not far away, dressed very expensively, looking at her and Li Xiwu.

It was actually Han Qianye? Why was Han Qianye here too?

Li Xiwu’s heart sank as she met Han Qianye’s gaze. “Auntie, she’s my best friend, Qiao Qiao. We were talking about what to eat for lunch today.”

Han Qianye said, “I don’t have bad hearing. I heard your friend clearly just now that you almost lost your life because of me.”

Qiao Qiao said, “So you don’t know. Then I’ll be a good person and tell you.”

Li Xiwu lowered her voice. “Qiao’er.”

Qiao Qiao didn’t listen to Li Xiwu. She said firmly, “You were in a car accident. Li Xiwu put herself in danger to find you. Did you see the gauze on her head? She was injured because she was looking for you. Han Qianye, I’m not trying to morally kidnap you, nor do I want you to return the favor to Li Xiwu. I just hope that you can give in to her and treat her a little better when you don’t see eye to eye with her.”
