201 Long-awaited Acquaintance

The security guard stared at Li Xiwu with a burning gaze. He seemed very excited, but there was also a hint of doubt mixed in with his excitement. He kept muttering, “How can it be so similar… How can it be so similar…”

But at this moment, no guest noticed his excitement.

Xue Jinzhu turned to ask Li Xiwu, “Sister Li, how many places are you not checked in?”

Li Xiwu said, “One.”

Xue Jinzhu’s eyes widened. “Just one?”

Li Xiwu nodded and asked, “What about you?”

Tang Xian, who was walking over, said, “We’re still short of two.”

Xue Jinzhu sighed. “I still have a date tonight. Looks like I have to work hard later.”

Tang Xian replied casually, “It’s fine. Lanshi can wait a little longer.”

Xue Jinzhu cooperated with a shy smile. “Auntie, that’s not very good.”

Tang Xian smiled faintly. “If he doesn’t have the patience to wait for you now, what will happen when you get married in the future?”

Xue Jinzhu had an epiphany. “That makes sense.”

Han Qianye walked to Li Xiwu’s side. “Xixi, let’s go to the next place.”

Li Xiwu turned sideways. “Okay.”

They could not enter Qiang Yue Garden. Even if they could, Li Xiwu and Han Qianye’s group arrived late. They could only find the next place to check in.

They were about to turn when—

The security guard suddenly shouted, “Wait! Wait!”

Li Xiwu stopped in her tracks and turned around at the same time as Han Qianye. After the security guard saw Li Xiwu’s face clearly, the shock in his eyes was even more obvious than before.

Han Qianye saw that the security guard had been staring at Li Xiwu and was a little unhappy. She frowned and asked, “What’s wrong?”

The security guard smiled apologetically. “Give me a minute. I’ll make a call and ask.”

Xue Jinzhu shouted, “Ask what? Could it be that we still have a chance to enter?”

The security guard was afraid that they would really leave, so he nodded and dealt with it first before asking, “So many of you are recording a show, right?”

Xue Jinzhu nodded. “Yes, yes.”

As the security guard searched for the phone number, he asked distractedly, “The kind of show that’ll be on TV?”

Xue Jinzhu was about to continue saying that she was right, but she quickly realized that this security uncle really did not watch variety shows. He had no idea what form the variety show they were recording was or what it was worth watching.

Before Xue Jinzhu could answer, the security guard held the phone to his ear and said something to the person on the other end of the line.

A moment later, the security guard ended the call and strode over to Li Xiwu. He had been a little far away just now, but now that he was walking over, the security guard stared carefully at Li Xiwu’s face at close range and realized that she really did look like her. However, he didn’t say anything nonsense. He only asked, “May I ask your surname?”

Li Xiwu was neither servile nor overbearing. “My surname is Li.”

The security guard’s pupils constricted visibly. He seemed even more surprised than before. “Your surname is Li?”

Li Xiwu nodded.

In his surprise, the security guard’s expression became much more serious. “Wait a moment. Mr. Cai will be out soon.”

Li Xiwu did not know much about Qiang Yue Garden and Li Mansion. She did not know who Mr. Cai was. She wanted to ask, but the person in front of him had already turned back and was looking up, waiting for Mr. Cai to appear.

[I know who it is as soon as I hear Mr. Cai.]

[Damn! What kind of face does Li Xiwu have? Mr. Cai is coming out to see her?]

[Mr. Cai is highly respected. He has been guarding the Li Mansion for decades and was Uncle Li’s mentor.]

[No way, no way. Does Sister Li have any other identity that we don’t know?]

[Hahaha, just kidding. Don’t tell me Li Xiwu went home.]

[Joke moderately. Perhaps Li Xiwu is the only one who has an appointment. But if she has an appointment, it proves that this one-line mission is a script.]

Millions of netizens speculated.

Xue Jinzhu poked her head over Li Xiwu’s side curiously. “Sister Li, do you know each other?”

Li Xiwu shook her head. “No.”

The security guard looked at her strangely just now. She couldn’t describe it specifically. Perhaps he had seen someone he hadn’t seen in a long time?

A few minutes later, a white-haired old man walked out of the side door of Qiang Yue Garden.

“Mr. Cai, she’s over there.” The security guard raised his hand and pointed in Li Xiwu’s direction in front of the old man.


Cai Buqu’s expression was serious as he walked towards Li Xiwu.

When Xue Jinzhu saw Cai Buqu walking over, she quickly waved her hand. “Old Mr. Cai!”

Cai Buqu followed the voice and looked at Xue Jinzhu. There were many people visiting the Li Mansion, so he naturally could not remember who Xue Jinzhu was, so he returned a very polite smile.

Han Qianye looked at Cai Buqu walking over and stood in front of Li Xiwu immediately. “Hello, Mr. Cai.”

Cai Buqu looked at Han Qianye and smiled back. “Mrs. Pei, long time no see.”

It had been a long time since he had seen Han Qianye. Recently, he had seen her on the variety show they were recording. At first, he did not know that there was someone on this show who was very similar to Little You.

And when Little Gu told him, he didn’t take it seriously.

It was not until Little Gu said that the person who looked like Little You was Han Qianye’s daughter-in-law that he realized that he had almost missed something, so he paid attention to this variety show that night.

It had not premiered yet. Instead, he waited for the live broadcast. Their expressions were indeed similar, but there was still a clear difference between her looks and Little You’s.

Little Gu said that he had already arranged for Han Qianye to bring Li Xiwu to Qiang Yue Garden today. He had also made preparations in advance and specially assigned a security guard who had seen Li You to stand guard.

Finally, she arrived.

At this moment, Han Qianye frowned. Until the fourth episode, her husband’s family had never been officially exposed. Just now, Cai Buqu had called her Mrs. Pei. She didn’t know if there would be any implications.

Cai Buqu did not continue on the pleasantries. He looked past Han Qianye at Li Xiwu behind her and asked, “Can I speak to Miss Li for a moment?”

The smile on Han Qianye’s lips froze. This Old Cai was indeed not blind. However, at this point, Han Qianye could not avoid anything even if she wanted to. She just did not want Xixi to be recognized as Little You frequently and feel uncomfortable.

She turned sideways to make way for Cai Buqu.

Beside her, Xue Jinzhu pretended to be surprised and said to Tang Xian, “Auntie Han and Mr. Cai seem to know each other.”

Tang Xian listened to Xue Jinzhu’s exaggerated tone and looked at her exaggerated expression. She cooperated and said, “I’m quite surprised.”

Xue Jinzhu giggled and said, “Auntie Tang, do you think Old Mr. Cai and Sister Li know each other?”

Tang Xian said calmly, “I guess… they know each other.”
