175 Han Qianye’s Heart Ached

When she saw Han Qianye’s shocked and disbelieving expression, three words flashed through Li Xiwu’s mind: Money is gone.

Be it 60 million or 600 million. They were all gone for the time being. Her heart suddenly began to bleed…

Qiao Qiao saw Li Xiwu’s uncomfortable expression and thought that Li Xiwu was touched that she had said it for Han Qianye to hear. In the end, she comforted her. “Bae, I just don’t want you to suffer.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “Yes, I know.”

With that, Li Xiwu sighed helplessly. Qiao Qiao heard this sigh and felt that Li Xiwu was too touched. “Bae, I think we should make things clear. You’re always indifferent, but my heart aches for you.”

Li Xiwu closed her eyes hard. “My heart aches too.” Her heart ached because it was bleeding.

At this moment, Han Qianye asked calmly, “Is what you said true?”

Qiao Qiao laughed angrily and turned to look at Han Qianye. “Do you think I have the time to make up a story to tease you?”

Han Qianye remained silent and turned to look at Li Xiwu. After a moment of silence, she called out to her, “Li Xiwu.”

Li Xiwu looked up.

Han Qianye said, “I still have something on. I have to leave first. Can you… send me off?”

Li Xiwu agreed and said to Qiao Qiao, “Wait for me.”

Qiao Qiao disagreed. “Han Qianye, are you human? She’s still recuperating. Do you know that she has a concussion? She can faint at any time.”

Han Qianye’s heart skipped a beat when she heard that it was a concussion. “Is that serious?”

Li Xiwu shook her head. “It’s not that serious.”

Qiao Qiao nodded. “It’s very serious! I’ll take over such a small matter.”

Han Qianye felt especially upset, especially in her heart. She felt as uncomfortable as if she had swallowed a needle. “No need. I’ll walk by myself.”

She didn’t say anything else and left with her bag. Li Xiwu gave Qiao Qiao a look, and Qiao Qiao pouted. “Okay, go ahead.”

Li Xiwu turned around to send Han Qianye off.

Han Qianye only realized that Li Xiwu had followed her out when she came out. She quickly said, “Don’t send me off. Go back and rest.”

Li Xiwu smiled faintly. “It’s fine. Qiao Qiao was just scaring you.”

Han Qianye frowned. “I’m sorry. I didn’t know about this.”

Li Xiwu said bluntly, “I asked the director and the others to suppress this matter.”

Han Qianye did not understand and said with concern, “You can suppress it, but you’re so seriously injured. You have to let me know, right? Besides, you were injured because of me.”

Li Xiwu said only two words. “I’m sorry.”

Han Qianye’s expression was tense. “I know you just want me to feel guilty. You did it. I really feel guilty and sad now.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips.

Han Qianye’s gaze moved up and stopped on the gauze on Li Xiwu’s forehead. She asked in a muffled voice, “Were you injured when you were looking for me that night?”

Li Xiwu’s voice was soft. “Yes.”

Han Qianye said, “So, at the county hospital, the director said that you left first. Actually, you were still in the ward at that time?”

Li Xiwu answered with the same word. “Yes.”

Han Qianye asked again, “After returning from Mount Liang, did Jingzhou take you to a big hospital for a checkup?”

Li Xiwu said, “Yes.”

Han Qianye asked, “Are you feeling better?”

Li Xiwu smiled faintly. “Actually, it’s nothing serious.”

“Nothing serious is what you said. This is a concussion, not a casual bump. I was so dizzy I thought I had a concussion, but the doctor said I was just in shock. A real concussion has vomiting and dizziness. The aftereffects last for days.”

With that, Han Qianye was angry and heartbroken. “Are you stupid?”

Li Xiwu smiled faintly. “Maybe. A little.”

Han Qianye: “…”

After a few seconds of silence, Han Qianye took half a step forward and looked at Li Xiwu with heartache. “Can you not hide everything from me in the future? I have the right to know.”

Li Xiwu was still smiling faintly. “Okay, I’ll try.”

Han Qianye said in a muffled voice, “You’re patronizing me again.”

With that, Han Qianye reached out to touch Li Xiwu’s face. Li Xiwu lowered her eyes and did not move, letting Han Qianye touch her. At this moment, Han Qianye carefully held Li Xiwu’s face with one hand as she looked up and carefully looked at the gauze on Li Xiwu’s forehead.

There was no sign of oozing blood on the white gauze. But she couldn’t see how the wound was under the white gauze. Was it big or small, or deep or shallow?

Han Qianye said gloomily, “Your friend is right. Don’t wear a hat for the time being. It will press down on the wound.”

Li Xiwu agreed obediently. “Okay.”

At this moment, Li Xiwu was like a good student. She would agree to whatever Han Qianye said. She would agree to whatever Han Qianye instructed her to do. She was so obedient that her heart ached.

At least Han Qianye’s heart ached.

However, in fact, the obedient expression on Li Xiwu’s face was only to pave the way for what she was about to say. She looked at Han Qianye’s emotions and probed, “…Auntie, did you come to me today for something else important?”

Han Qianye was still immersed in self-blame and sadness. When she heard Li Xiwu mention her motive for coming today, she belatedly remembered that she was here to give Li Xiwu a check and then suggest ending the relationship between mother and daughter-in-law in advance.

She pulled back and covered her bag, lying without blushing. “I was just bored and came to talk to you.”

Li Xiwu raised her lips. “Just… talking?”

Han Qianye nodded. “Yeah.”

Li Xiwu took a deep breath. “I just saw that you seemed to have taken out a check. Are you prepared…?”

As soon as she finished speaking, Han Qianye took out the check from her bag. “Aiya, I almost forgot if you didn’t mention it.”

Li Xiwu thought that Han Qianye was probably going to fool her. Unexpectedly, she took out the check again. The hand at her side was ready to reach out and take the check at any moment.

It was within reach.

Han Qianye held the check and said, “I’ve recently planned to invest in a hot spring hotel. When spring comes next year, I’ll probably be able to start this investment plan. This 600 million is the starting capital. I came here today to discuss the development plan of the hot spring hotel with you and want your opinion.”

Li Xiwu: “…”


A few seconds later, she finally sighed and smiled in resignation. “Shouldn’t you have brought a proposal to look for me when we’re discussing the development plan? Why did you bring a check to talk to me about investment?”

Han Qianye lied seriously. “I don’t know much about this. I only know how to throw blindly.”

Li Xiwu was surprised. “A blind throw?”

If they were to blindly invest like Han Qianye, then Pei Corporation definitely had a good incense offering since they did not collapse.

Han Qianye seemed to have seen through Li Xiwu’s thoughts. “What you’re worried about won’t happen. I’m a lucky person. I earn whatever I invest. I’ve never lost money all these years.”

Li Xiwu smiled.

Seeing Han Qianye put the check back into her bag, she gritted her teeth and thought to herself that this was how heartache felt.

It throbbed.

It was still dripping blood.

Qiao’er, thank you so much.
