Divorce Him

Li Xiwu saw Pei Jingzhou and the graceful woman hugging each other. She stared for a moment, then silently retreated to the corner and stood. About a minute later, the sound of high heels approached.

Li Xiwu pretended to walk and ‘just happened’ to bump into the owner of the high heels. Their eyes met. It was the graceful woman who had followed Pei Jingzhou downstairs. She was also the woman who had hugged Pei Jingzhou in the corridor just now. She was very beautiful and charming, but she was not like his first love.

Li Xiwu suddenly remembered that for the past three years, Pei Jingzhou only had her by his side. However, Li Xiwu knew very well that although he seemed to be clean and honest, it was actually because those women did not look like his first love. But now, there were women around him…

“How dare you walk in my way,” the woman said haughtily.

Li Xiwu gave way. Seeing this, the woman was very satisfied and left in her eight-centimeter high heels. She waited until the sound of high heels disappeared into the elevator before she composed herself and walked over.

Outside the door, Chen Xin raised his hand to wipe the lipstick off his cheek. He turned around and saw Li Xiwu walking slowly towards him.

Earlier, Chen Xin was afraid of wasting time and did not dare to speak much to Li Xiwu. Now that he saw Li Xiwu, he immediately came forward and asked, “Miss Li, are you here to see Mr. Pei?”

Li Xiwu smiled her standard smile. “No, I live on this floor.”

Chen Xin smiled awkwardly and made way resentfully.

Li Xiwu swiped her card and returned to her room. She changed into slippers and went to the bathroom to remove her makeup and take a shower. She ate an apple, mixed a glass of honey water, put on a heat mask, and went straight to bed. Probably because there were too many things on her mind, she tossed and turned, unable to fall asleep.

She took off the heat mask and took her phone from the bedside table. She opened her best friend Qiao Qiao’s WeChat and sent her a WeChat message: [Pei Jingzhou and I are getting a divorce.]

She waited a few seconds in silence. Her phone buzzed. Qiao Qiao had replied to her message.

[Is it convenient to pick up?]

Li Xiwu replied: [Yeah.]

Then, Qiao Qiao called directly.

Just as Li Xiwu pressed the phone to his ear, Qiao Qiao’s questions came from the other end of the line. “Are you going to divorce Pei Jingzhou? Have you found a lawyer? Is the lawyer reliable? Did Pei Jingzhou say how much divorce property he wants to give you? I have a friend who has made an entire legal team. Should I introduce them to you?”

Li Xiwu laughed out loud. As expected of her best friend. Not only did she not feel surprised, but she also immediately thought of a way to help her fight for the most benefits.

Qiao Qiao said, “How about this? I ask, you answer.”

Li Xiwu hadn’t figured out how to express her true thoughts to Qiao Qiao. Now that Qiao Qiao had unfolded the conversation, she took the opportunity to say, “Okay.”

Qiao Qiao asked, “What do you think of Pei Jingzhou?”

Li Xiwu didn’t hesitate when she answered. “Very impressive!!”

Qiao Qiao was speechless for a moment before continuing. “I mean, what do you think of him?”

Li Xiwu said, “He’s also very powerful.”

Qiao Qiao was speechless.

Qiao Qiao’s train of thought was diverted by Li Xiwu. She paused for a few seconds before continuing, “You were married to Pei Jingzhou for three years and led a noble life. You even started a career. Putting aside the fact that you’re husband and wife, just treat Pei Jingzhou as your sugar daddy. He doted on you and was willing to spend money on you. Now that you’re suddenly getting a divorce, I can’t bear to think about it.”

These words simply pierced Li Xiwu’s heart. “Yes.”

Qiao Qiao laid out the problems that existed now. “But you’re getting married by agreement. You might not be able to get much of a divorce property. You’ll just have to try to get as much as possible.”

At the mention of divorce assets, Qiao Qiao sighed even more than Li Xiwu. “It’s fine to get married normally, but it’s difficult to get married through an agreement. Wanting to get more divorce assets is equivalent to taking advantage of capitalists…”

Qiao Qiao continued, “For Pei Jingzhou to be able to dominate the capital for so many years, he’s not someone to be trifled with. Although it’s very stable for you to part on good terms, who doesn’t want to make a fortune from him before leaving? After all, this is enough for ordinary people to live for most of their lives. How about this? Wait for me. I’ll help you contact a lawyer and see if any lawyer is willing to take on the divorce contract between you and Pei Jingzhou.”

Li Xiwu thought that no lawyer in the entire capital would dare to accept her divorce from Pei Jingzhou. At this moment, the line was suddenly busy. Li Xiwu hurriedly told Qiao Qiao that she would talk to her tomorrow, then ended the call with her and took this call.

“Mr. Pei?” Her voice was as steady as ever.

On the other end of the line was Pei Jingzhou’s voice. “Come to 1822.”

Li Xiwu knew where 1822 was. Next door to her. Some distant thoughts were interrupted. She acknowledged them first, gathered up her dressing gown, and shuffled past in her slippers.

Knock knock knock –

She raised her hand to knock. The door was ajar. She pushed it open and went straight in. The suites on this floor were all the same. Brown-and-black business style.

Li Xiwu walked in and heard the sound of running water coming from the bathroom. It must be Pei Jingzhou taking a shower. After she came in, she stood quietly in front of the French window for a while, waiting for Pei Jingzhou to finish showering.

After a few minutes, the water stopped and Pei Jingzhou walked out with a towel wrapped around his lower body. He was very tall and worked out all year round. His figure was superior in all aspects, and his abdominal muscles were well-defined. Li Xiwu had seen him countless times in the past three years, but she would still take a few more glances.

Her gaze slowly moved up. Above his neck was an angular outline. His jaw was firm, and his nose bridge was like a mountain. Although he was expressionless, his aura was like a mountain.

After half a month, they seemed to have become strangers again. They probably needed to do something sweaty to regain their previous familiarity.

At this moment, Pei Jingzhou stood by the bed and gestured at Li Xiwu.

Li Xiwu walked over.

Pei Jingzhou must have missed her body very much. As she approached, his hand immediately reached for her waist and entered her robe. His palms were wet and warm, wide and strong. He quickly restrained her waist and pulled her into his arms.

According to the usual procedure, what to do next was unspoken.

Li Xiwu suddenly shouted, “Mr. Pei!”

Pei Jingzhou looked down at her.

“I…” Li Xiwu’s body stiffened. This was a sign of resistance. Pei Jingzhou had noticed it too.

“I didn’t shower,” she lied. His closeness just now made her feel physically uncomfortable. It was probably because he had begun to accept other women.
