Chapter 212: Not a Substitute

Translator: Henyee Translations       Editor: Henyee Translations

Li Xiwu asked, “Where’s Yaoyao?


Pei Jingzhou said, “He’s standing at the entrance, unwilling to come in.”

Li Xiwu walked to the entrance and took a look. Yaoyao squatted there and looked at her pitifully. Li Xiwu put the snacks aside and went to Yaoyao. “Yaoyao, what’s wrong?

When she communicated with the little guy, Li Xiwu did not realize that her voice had become very gentle. It was a rare gentleness from the inside out.

Yaoyao did not speak, so she pulled Yaoyao up.


Yaoyao didn’t cooperate, so she picked him up.

Then, she carried Yaoyao over and placed him on the sofa. She squatted down in front of Yaoyao and opened all the snacks. She placed them in front of Yaoyao. “Here, eat whatever you like. If there’s nothing you like here, you can

Most of these snacks were brought by Qiao Qiao last time. Yaoyao did not refuse the snacks. He chose a bag of chips from the snacks Li Xiwu had opened.

Li Xiwu smiled gently. “Sure enough, children like to eat potato chips.”


Yaoyao picked up an incomplete chip from the potato chip bag. He was about to give it to Li Xiwu. She remembered the phrase, “Try not to refuse something given by a child.” She was about to reach out to take it.

At this moment, Yaoyao suddenly retracted his hand and stuffed the potato chip into his mouth.

Crack, crack, crack.

There was the crisp sound of crisp chips.

Li Xiwu smiled. Of course she wouldn’t be angry. Although she had never interacted much with children, it was normal for children to be eccentric.

Just as she was thinking this, she saw Yaoyao carefully find a complete potato chip from the potato chip bag. This time, she looked carefully and confirmed that it was very complete before giving it to Li Xiwu.


Li Xiwu thought the little guy was teasing her again and cooperated by reaching out to take it. To her surprise, the little guy did not take the chip back this time. She also noticed that it was a complete potato chip. It was a piece the little guy had carefully selected for her.

Li Xiwu was surprised that she didn’t eat it. The cracking sound suddenly stopped and Yaoyao looked at Li Xiwu quietly.

Li Xiwu guessed, “Do you want to change to a different flavor?

Yaoyao said softly, “Aren’t you eating?

So thafs what he meant, Li Xiwu thought. She stuffed the chip into her mouth, then asked, “Do you want to watch TV? I’ll watch TV with you for a while.” Yaoyao nodded.

So Li Xiwu turned on the television and found a cartoon. M/hen she tuned it, she paid attention to the expression of Yaoyao. When it stopped on the cover of a cartoon, Yaoyao’s reaction was the most obvious, which meant that he wanted to watch that cartoon.

Not long after it started playing, Qiao Qiao called. Before answering the phone,

Li Xiwu called Pei Jingzhou over. “Take a look at Yaoyao.”


Pei Jingzhou agreed reluctantly.

Yaoyao was so focused on watching television that he did not notice that the person sitting beside him had changed. When he was laughing happily, he fell onto Pei Jingzhou’s lap. Sensing that something was wrong, he opened his big eyes and looked up. Pei Jingzhou:


The two of them were speechless.

Yaoyao quickly got up and sat back down. Pei Jingzhou patted his pants and smoothed out the creases. Both of them despised each other. At this moment, Pei Jingzhou reached out for the remote control and casually switched to the financial channel.

Yaoyao puffed out his cheeks aggrievedly.

Pei Jingzhou watched and said indifferently, “If you have the ability, cry.”

Yaoyao felt even more aggrieved. “Bad guy.”

Pei Jingzhou sneered. “If I were a bad person, I would be counting the money I earned from selling you.”

Yaoyao looked up. His soft face was filled with emotions. He looked at Pei Jingzhou anxiously and asked, “Will you really sell me?

Pei Jingzhou said, “Not bad. This time, you said five words in one go. I thought you had speech retardation.”

Yaoyao didn’t know what speech retardation was, but he wouldn’t ask. Because it seemed embarrassing to ask. His face was only so big. He couldn’t lose it again.

On the terrace outside the bedroom, Li Xiwu was on the phone with Qiao Qiao.


Qiao Qiao, who was grounded in the hotel, was fighting with Qiao Jingmo from morning to night, thinking of ways to slip away.

There were five days in total. It had only been a day and she was going crazy. After fighting for most of the day, by the time she had time to look at her phone, Li Xiwu was back from the hospital.

Qiao Qiao asked a bunch of worried questions. Li Xiwu told her everything she remembered at the time, except what happened after she fainted. She wasn’t too sure.

Qiao Qiao was shocked. “Did they really knock you out in broad daylight?”

Li Xiwu said, “But I’m fine.”

Qiao Qiao said, “This isn’t about being fine. This is about calling the police. Does Pei Jingzhou know? Did he call the police for you? Were those two arrested at the police station?

Li Xiwu smiled faintly. “None of these happened.”

Qiao Qiao was furious. “That won’t do. We can’t let them get away with it.”

Li Xiwu knew what Qiao Qiao was worried about, but this concerned the reputation of the Li Mansion. The other party had probably grasped this key point, which was why they had taken action today. If it were before, Li Xiwu might not have cared so much about the reputation of the Li Mansion. It was a threat to her life.

But now, she had to take care of it.

Li Xiwu chose to tell Qiao Qiao something from the bottom of her heart. “Actually, I have some doubts about my background. This matter also involves my background.

Qiao Qiao immediately fell silent.

Li Xiwu continued, “My background seems a little complicated. I should have been through a lot, but I forgot about it later.”

Qiao Qiao asked suspiciously, “Then who do you suspect you are?

Li Xiwu said, “I suspect that I’m Li You.”

Qiao Qiao:

Atter interacting with her tor so long, Qiao Qiao knew Li Xiwu very well. Li Xiwu wouldn’t say anything she wasn’t confident of in advance. Since she said it, it meant that she was confident. However, what shocked Qiao Qiao even more was that the person Li Xiwu had just mentioned was Li You!

That was Li You!

If Qiao Qiao and Li Xiwu were just ordinary friends, Qiao Qiao would have laughed by now. Why was Li You involved in the scam? She was Uncle Li l s daughter, a diplomat as outstanding as Uncle Li!

But now that she heard this speculation from Li Xiwu, Qiao Qiao believed it without hesitation. “I didn’t think about it carefully, but when I thought about it carefully, I realized so many details. You’re an orphan, and your surname is Li. Moreover, you look like Li You. Especially since your current educational background is on a completely different level from your actual performance.”

After analyzing, Qiao Qiao was curious about something else. “But why did you lose your memory? Could it be because you were in danger when you evacuated overseas during the turmoil in Country T? You didn’t die in the line of duty, but were saved, but you lost your memory when you woke up?”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “I’m not sure what’s going on yet.”

Qiao Qiao suddenly realized.. “Then if you’re Li You, you know, right? You’re actually not a substitute at all…’
