Chapter 226: Pei Jingzhou Telling Li Xiwu Her Background

Translator: Henyee Translations  Editor: Henyee Translations

Pei Jingzhou smiled. Then he stood up and turned to leave.


He left just like that without saying a word. Li Xiwu only stared at his back in silence, feeling even more stifled. She ate in silence, but she couldn’t taste the food.

Just as she was so depressed that she couldn’t continue eating, Pei Jingzhou returned.

Li Xiwu noticed that Pei Jingzhou, who had returned, was holding a yellow paper bag. He walked to her side and sat down as close as before. He opened the yellow paper bag and took out the document inside.

He gently placed it in front of Li Xiwu. “Take a look.”


Of course, Li Xiwu would not ask Pei Jingzhou what this was again after seeing the words ‘prenuptial agreement’. She opened the document and read it to confirm that it was the one from back then. It was also signed by Pei Jingzhou.

Curious, she turned to him. “Is there a problem with that?”

Pei Jingzhou pointed at a certain spot. “The last clause of the general provisions of the agreement: The final right of the agreement belongs to the couple.”

Li Xiwu: ‘


Pei Jingzhou smiled. “You should know the last sentence of the general rule of the agreement. It’s very important.”

Li Xiwu: ‘

That wasn’t all.

Pei Jingzhou’s fingertips moved up and stopped on the sixth article of the general provisions of the agreement. “During the agreement period, if Party B unilaterally proposes to end the marriage and violates the agreement, the final break off of the agreement will belong to Party A. Now that you’ve mentioned it, the final rights will belong to me.”

Li Xiwu: ‘

She took a deep breath and tried to calm herself. “Back then…’


Pei Jingzhou said, “Back then, it was written clearly in black and white. There were also surveillance cameras in the room where you signed. Everything I said to you and everything you said was monitored.”

Li Xiwu choked. She closed her eyes hard. Finally, she sighed. “So this is a scheme.”

Pei Jingzhou smiled meaningfully. “How can it be a scheme? It’s to protect my rights and interests. I’m focused on maintaining my marriage, but you’re thinking about divorce. If I don’t protect my rights and interests and you run away, how can I live without you for the rest of my life?”

He said it casually, as if he was joking. However, Li Xiwu noticed the helplessness and grievance in Pei Jingzhou’s eyes when he said this. Li Xiwu was a little moved, but she still asked rationally, “Did Fourth Brother say that to me or her?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “No one else. Only you.”

Li Xiwu blurted out, “Then am I a substitute?”

Pei Jingzhou replied without hesitation, “No.”

Li Xiwu suddenly stood up. Pei Jingzhou sat still and looked up at Li Xiwu quietly. Li Xiwu was not very calm. From her expression, it was obvious that she was flustered from the inside out. After she surprisingly obtained the answer she wanted from Pei Jingzhou, she first cowered and did not have the courage to continue asking.


She knocked over a stool as she retreated. Pei Jingzhou stood up immediately to support her. “Be careful.”

Li Xiwu looked at Pei Jingzhou, who was worried about her, in a daze. She pondered for a moment before asking, “Why did you choose to tell me this time?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I wanted to tell you.”

Li Xiwu choked on a laugh. “It should be because I’m slowly recovering my memories after returning from Mount Liang, right?”

Pei Jingzhou did not answer. Li Xiwu said, “You’ve seen the sketchbook?”

Pei Jingzhou admitted, “Yes.”

Li Xiwu calmed herself down and asked with a sigh, “So, is Li Huaisheng… really my father?”

Pei Jingzhou stared into her eyes in silence for a long time before slowly saying, “Yes.”

The moment she really knew the truth, Li Xiwu calmed down. Why? Because she had no memories of the past now, except when she heard Pei Jingzhou admit that she was not a substitute. She was very surprised that Pei Jingzhou chose to tell her tonight.

Pei Jingzhou looked at Li Xiwu, who had quickly calmed down. “I respect everything about you, but I won’t tell you much about your past memories for the time being.”

Li Xiwu asked, “Why?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “That’s too painful for you.”

Pei Jingzhou would never forget that when he came out of the ICU and woke up after being in a coma for more than ten days, he saw the scene he did not want to remember the most in his life. Even after four years, his heart still ached uncontrollably.


The destroyed face, self-mutilating wounds, walking corpse…

She had no intention of living. She was so thin that she looked withered, and her body was almost exhausted.

Li Xiwu asked hesitantly, “Is it too painful because of my father’s death?”

Pei Jingzhou was too afraid that the person in front of him would return to her previous self. He would not mention much about the past and only agreed.

Li Xiwu said, “What about my mother?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “She passed away.”

Li Xiwu’s breath caught. “…Don’t I have any other family?”

Pei Jingzhou said word by word, “The Li family is a descendant of Zanying. There are some collateral families, but your grandparents are no longer around. Your father is your grandparents’ only son, and you are your father’s only daughter. As for your mother, the MO family in the Capital provides your longevity token. ”

Li Xiwu was surprised. “The MO family in the Capital, the Longevity Token?” Pei Jingzhou pulled her into the house. “Your grandmother didn’t believe that you were gone, so she offered a longevity tablet for you in the MO family and prayed for your longevity. Now that Madam Di Xin has come, I believe it won’t be long before the MO family comes.”

Li Xiwu stopped, and so did Pei Jingzhou.

Li Xiwu looked up at him and asked, “Why did you choose to tell me this today?”

Pei Jingzhou’s expression was so gentle. “You’re already recovering your memories. I don’t want the past that you remember intermittently to become a worry that traps you.”

Li Xiwu sighed. “If I say I can handle the past, you can— Pei Jingzhou interrupted her. “It’s late. We should rest.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. In the end, she did not ask again. She knew that no matter how much she asked, she could not personally feel the past because there were no memories in her mind. As for pain, Li Xiwu couldn’t imagine how much her previous experience had hurt her. Just as Pei Jingzhou had said, what if she really couldn’t bear her previous memories?

She came into the room.

Yaoyao, who should have been sleeping soundly, was sitting on the bed with a blank expression, looking around the room curiously. When he saw Li Xiwu enter, his dazed eyes instantly became clear. “Hug

The moment Li Xiwu saw Yaoyao reach out to her, all her worries were temporarily put aside. She went forward to hug Yaoyao.

The smile on Li Xiwu’s lips spread unknowingly. “Have you been waiting for me today?”

Yaoyao nodded..
