194 Li You Is Really Very Outstanding

She took the opportunity to cut to the chase. “Can you give me Miss Yu’s contact number?”

When Han Qianye heard that she wanted Yu Hewei’s contact number, she hesitated for a moment before agreeing. “Sure.”

Yu Hewei was Li You’s friend. To be honest, Han Qianye did not want Li Xiwu to have too much contact with Yu Hewei. It was not that Yu Hewei was anything special. She just felt that Yu Hewei must have rejected Li Xiwu from Li You’s perspective.

However, since Li Xiwu had personally asked for it, Han Qianye definitely had to give it. Hence, Han Qianye took out her phone. “I’ll give you Yu Hewei’s WeChat name card.”

Li Xiwu almost thought that Han Qianye would not agree. But fortunately, she agreed. She nodded and waited.

After pushing the WeChat name card, Han Qianye gave Yu Hewei’s phone number to Li Xiwu. “I’ve sent you her WeChat and phone number.”

Li Xiwu said, “Thank you, Auntie.”

Although Han Qianye did not like her to call her Auntie, she could only listen first.

Next, Li Xiwu began to ask about Yu Hewei, intentionally or otherwise. “Miss Yu doesn’t look like she’s from Country T. Does she live in Country T all year round?”

Han Qianye did not want to talk about Yu Hewei at first, but since Li Xiwu asked, she could not fool her. “She’s from the Capital. She studied in Country T in her early years. After returning to the country a few years ago, she settled in Hai City.”

Li Xiwu probed, “Back four years ago?”

Han Qianye was about to nod. She suddenly realized why Li Xiwu had asked if it was four years ago. Han Qianye hesitated. “Actually, that’s all in the past.”

Li Xiwu turned around. “Auntie, can you tell me about Li You?”

This time, Han Qianye was really stumped. She could neither agree nor disagree. She could mention Li You to others, but in front of Li Xiwu, she really did not know how to mention Li You.

This was making things difficult for her!

Li Xiwu could also tell that Han Qianye was in a difficult position. “Actually, I didn’t know her name was Li You before. It was only after Madam Di Xin found me and mentioned this name that I realized that her name was Li You. She has the same surname as me.”

She only knew that there was such a person in Pei Jingzhou’s heart. No one could replace her. But she didn’t know this person’s name.

Han Qianye hesitated for a long time and thought that it would be fine to say a little. Anyway, Li Xiwu took the initiative. “She and Jingzhou are childhood sweethearts. She’s also Jingzhou’s first love.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips.

Han Qianye looked at Li Xiwu’s expression. “You can’t be angry. You took the initiative to ask me.”

Li Xiwu suppressed a smile. “I’m not angry. Continue.”

Han Qianye probed, “Do you really want to hear more?”

Li Xiwu nodded.

Han Qianye said first, “If you want to hear it, I can tell you slowly, but you can’t get angry after hearing it. If you get angry, you’ll implicate me. You can ignore Jingzhou, but you can’t ignore me, okay?”

She was worried that Li Xiwu would be angry after she finished speaking, that she was so angry that she would ignore her.

Li Xiwu smiled faintly. “Since I asked, I really want to hear it. I won’t be angry.”

When Han Qianye heard Li Xiwu’s words, she felt at ease. So she pulled Li Xiwu to the side hall next door and sat down to talk slowly. “Jingzhou and Li You have known each other for many years. We agreed to their engagement, but after Li You went to Country T, Jingzhou spent half of every year flying to Country T to see her.”

At this point, Han Qianye said, “That night at the inn, the past Jingzhou mentioned was his and Li You’s past.”

Li Xiwu lowered her eyes. “I figured.”

Seeing that Li Xiwu was not too sad, Han Qianye continued, “Four years ago, there was chaos in Country T. During a large-scale evacuation, Li You died in the line of duty.”

Li Xiwu heard two very important words. “Line of duty?”

Han Qianye asked Li Xiwu, “You know about the war between Country T and South Yue Nation four years ago, right?”

Li Xiwu had not known. But now she knows. But she couldn’t say she’d only just found out. She just nodded.

Han Qianye said softly, “Do you know this sentence? Other than soldiers, the closest to the sound of artillery is a diplomat.”

Li Xiwu nodded. “I’ve heard of it.”

Han Qianye continued, “Li You’s father, Li Huaisheng, is a very outstanding diplomat in our country. He’s an ambassador with special powers and plenipotentiary, the highest-ranking diplomat in our country. Everyone in the industry calls him Uncle Li. A woman inherits her father’s work. Li You is also a diplomat. She was about to return to the country to work as the press secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but unfortunately…”

Han Qianye took a deep breath to calm herself down. “Four years ago, if Li You had returned safely and become the press secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, you would probably be able to find her online now. Unfortunately, she will forever stay in Country T. But if you want to know more about Li You’s father, you can search for Li Huaisheng online. There are many introductions to him on the Internet and his photo.”

Li Xiwu wanted to say: I know. But she swallowed those words and said, “Okay.” At this moment, Li Xiwu’s heart was extremely stuffy.

Han Qianye looked at Li Xiwu’s expression. “Are you very sad to hear this?”

Li Xiwu’s lips quivered. “A little.”

Han Qianye could tell that Li Xiwu was feeling very depressed, so she stopped the conversation. “Alright, let’s not talk about this anymore. It’s time to eat. Let’s go down and eat.” With that, Han Qianye reached out to pull Li Xiwu.

Li Xiwu grabbed Han Qianye’s arm. “Auntie, don’t mention that I asked you these things to Fourth Brother.”

Han Qianye understood and patted the back of Li Xiwu’s hand. “Don’t worry, I won’t say anything.”

Li Xiwu followed Han Qianye down in the elevator. The Pei residence was too big and the second floor was very high. Most of the time, the stairs were taken by servants.

Pei You’an, who was lying on the sofa and playing Fight the Landlord on his tablet, heard someone walking over and glanced in the direction of the voice. The first thing he saw was his mother, and the second was his sister-in-law!

Pei You’an suddenly sat up straight. “My sister-in-law is here!”

Pei Jiao, who was sitting opposite the sofa and eating an apple, replied, “Yes, she’s here.”

Pei You’an threw the tablet to Pei Jiao. “Then why didn’t you say anything just now?”

Pei Jiao said, “You didn’t ask.”

Pei You’an: “…”

Pei You’an rushed towards Li Xiwu and opened his hands to hug her. Han Qianye suddenly stood in front of him. “What are you doing?”

Pei You’an stopped in his tracks. “I’m giving Sister-in-law a hug.”

Han Qianye waved her hand. “Go away.”

Pei You’an was not discouraged that he could not hug Li Xiwu. He circled around Li Xiwu and asked like a magpie, “Sister-in-law, when did you come?”

Li Xiwu replied, “Before five-thirty.”

Pei You’an’s mouth fell open. “You’re here so early? I’m taking a day off this time. School was over at five. If I had known, I would have run home with my bag after class.”
