Pei Jingzhou said, “He hasn’t been picked up yet.”


Li Xiwu was stunned. “Yaoyao hasn’t been picked up yet?”

Pei Jingzhou told her, “Madam Di Xin is not out of the hospital yet. The little ghost will stay at our house for the time being.”

Madam Di Xin was sick, so Li Xiwu naturally couldn’t speculate much. She just thought, “Then all day today…”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I watched him all day. He never left my sight for a minute.”


Li Xiwu was a little surprised. “So, Fourth Brother has been at home all day to take care of Yaoyao?” “Not at home.” “Hmm?”

“I took the kid to the office.’

Not only did Pei Jingzhou take care of Yaoyao for the entire day, but he also brought him to the company. This was something Li Xiwu would never have expected.

Pei Jingzhou guessed what she was thinking. “Are you surprised?”


Li Xiwu  said truthfully, “A little.”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “Just treat it as adapting in advance.”

Li Xiwu was slow to react for a few seconds. “Adapt to what in advance?”

Pei Jingzhou was in a good mood. Even his voice was mixed with laughter. “What do you think?”

Li Xiwu, who had reacted, was speechless. She hung up. Just as she was about to drive, she looked up and suddenly realized that her lips were curled up in the rearview mirror. It turned out that her mood had improved a lot after this call.


It wasn’t so heavy anymore.

She arrived at the restaurant.

Li Xiwu waited for about half an hour before Lan Min arrived.

Lan Min came alone. When she entered the private room and saw Li Xiwu, she came forward and hugged her kindly. “Long time no see, old friend.”

Li Xiwu returned the same enthusiastic smile. “How have you been?”

Lan Min placed her bag on the seat beside her and sat down beside Li Xiwu.

“Whether it’s good or not, you have to be more specific. For example?”

Li Xiwu said, “Your health.”


Lan Min smiled faintly. “My health is not as good as before. In the past, I often stayed up late to deal with work and suffered from some occupational diseases. Recently, I’ve been drinking Chinese medicine to recuperate.”

Li Xiwu said caringly, “Take care of yourself.”

Lan Min looked at Li Xiwu. “What about you? How have you been? Is there a lot on your mind?”

Li Xiwu’s lips were flat. “Some.”

Lan Min asked kindly, “Do you need any help? I’ll help you if I can.”

Li Xiwu looked up at Lan Min. “I need help, but it depends on whether Miss Lan is willing.”

Lan Min raised her hand and patted Li Xiwu’s arm. “What do you mean by whether I’m willing or not? You’re being too polite. We used to be in the same company after all. You were even guided by me.”

The last few words were a deliberate reminder to Li Xiwu of what had happened back then. Lan Min personally guided her, but when she turned around, she replaced Lan Min.

Li Xiwu said, “You can ask for anything.”

Lan Min smiled. “What request? As long as you tell the truth publicly.”

Li Xiwu asked, “What truth?”

The smile in Lan Min’s eyes faded as she looked at Li Xiwu coldly. “Admit publicly that back then, you schemed to snatch five resources from me and forced me to quit Hua Guan Media.”

It was a matter of reputation.


Lan Min knew that it was impossible for Li Xiwu to agree, but she had something on her now. She had to grind it until Li Xiwu agreed.

However, to Lan Min’s surprise, Li Xiwu agreed without even beating around the bush. “Sure.”

Lan Min raised her eyebrows. “Do you think I’m joking with you?”

Li Xiwu’s gaze was serious. “Are you kidding me?”

Lan Min was speechless. The next second, Lan Min laughed out loud. “When I questioned you back then, you refused to admit it. Now that you’re famous, you know to care about your reputation, so you have to admit it, right?” Li Xiwu looked very calm. “So all you want is a public apology from me?”

Lan Min looked at Li Xiwu. “Yes.”

Li Xiwu said, “Sure.”

Lan Min looked down on her. “Compared to losing your reputation, such an unimportant public apology seems too easy for you.”

Li Xiwu smiled.

Lan Mindi looked at Li Xiwu. “First, there was Xie Wen, then something happened to Ji Weiling. Do you think the netizens will think that there’s something wrong with you? The two female celebrities you brought up are both love-minded.”

Li Xiwu’s face darkened. “Let Ji Weiling go.”

Lan Min pursed her lips. “I don’t have the ability to get Qi Zishen to help me do anything. I just got Qi Zishen’s previous girlfriend to help me a little. Qi Zishen is too clear about which is more important between his career and a woman.

Although it might be… not enough?”

Li Xiwu’s hands clenched at her sides.

Lan Min suddenly leaned closer to Li Xiwu. “Do you know how I caught you?”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows in curiosity. “I’m all ears.”

Lan Min said, “It was all such a coincidence. My cousin also participated in this blind date show. What’s more, she was at the same time as you. Because we didn’t meet during that period of time, I didn’t hear her mention what happened during the recording. In the end, we met two days ago. Guess what?

My cousin saw your WeChat Moments.”

“No!” Lan Min corrected her. “It should be that post on your friend’s Moments. I heard my cousin complain that your friend’s plastic surgery is making her look more and more like a female guest on a certain in-law variety show. She even took a screenshot for me and asked me if she looked like her. When I saw it, I realized that it was not just a resemblance. It was clearly the same person.” Li Xiwu:

Lan Min’s face was about to burst into laughter. “Does your mother-in-law on the variety show know that you were on a blind date show during the recording of the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law variety show? Does your executive husband know that you were on a blind date show? It’s not easy to be the daughter-in-law of a wealthy family, right? Is life like walking on thin ice? However, it’s just an ordinary wealthy family. They’re flaunting their worth on the show like hundreds of billions. I think the settings are still a little exaggerated.”

Li Xiwu  pursed her lips. “So what do you want?”

Lan Min looked straight at Li Xiwu. “Use your Internet celebrity account with tens of millions of fans and publicly apologize to me. Introduce me to a copy of the good resources in the future. I don’t want the money, in case you say that I’m extorting you.”

Li Xiwu smiled. “I’ll think about it.”

Lan Min said, “Take your time. There’s no hurry.”

Throughout the meal, they each had their own thoughts.

When Lan Min left, she even hugged Li Xiwu affectionately. “Think about it when you get back.”

Li Xiwu said, “I’ll think about it.’

After Lan Min left, Li Xiwu sat quietly in the private room for a long time.

Finally, she called Qiao Qiao and told her about the situation.

Qiao Qiao’s temper was very explosive. When she heard this, she was furious. “Is this person shameless? She’s clearly the one who’s incapable and shallow.

That’s a resource she didn’t want and gave it to you. It just happened to make Xie Wen famous. Now, she’s saying that you snatched it away? Is she learning shame?”

Li Xiwu said, “Alright, Qiao’er. It’s useless to say this now. She has something on me.”

Qiao Qiao quieted down. Thinking that she was responsible for a lot of this, she whispered, “Bae, what should we do now?”

Before making this call to Qiao Qiao, which was the few minutes of sitting quietly, Li Xiwu had thought it through. She said slowly, “I’ll just expose everything. I’ll bear all the consequences..”
