Chapter 299: That Was Pei Jingzhou’s Most Difficult Year

Translator: Henyee Translations      Editor: Henyee Translations

The atmosphere was quiet. Li Xiwu did not know what to say. She could tell that Pei Jingzhou wanted to know too much.


The scenes that had appeared in her dream appeared in front of her eyes. She thought for a few seconds and tried to find a topic to talk about. “Four years ago, did you expect us to have a child?”

To Pei Jingzhou, this topic was very different. But he would still answer her seriously. “I have.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “…Then four years ago…”

Pei Jingzhou looked at her. “What are you trying to say?

What happened four years ago was not far away, but Li Xiwu did not have any memories. She relied on the frames of her dream to remind her of what had happened in the dream. She did not know which was real and which were illusions in the dream.

For example, she had once lost a child…

She was very sad in her dreams because she had experienced it personally in her dreams. However, when she woke up, she was very empty and lost. Her blank memories could not be felt personally.

She hesitated for a long time before finally asking, “Have we ever had a child?” Her voice was soft as she asked this question.

Pei Jingzhou’s jaw tightened. “Why do you ask?”

Li Xiwu said, “I’m getting more and more curious about the past.”

“If you’ve thought it through, I’ll bring you to that place,” Pei Jingzhou said.

Where was that place? Li Xiwu thought of it. It was a place where she could be hypnotized again and help her completely regain her memory.

Previously, it was because Li Xiwu had not thought it through. Once she regained her memory, it meant that she had to bear the pain of the past. However, if she had really thought it through, Pei Jingzhou would not stop her from regaining her memory.

Li Xiwu lowered her eyes. “I do want to know, but I haven’t thought it through yet. Fourth Brother, you haven’t answered my question just now.”

[Have we ever had a child?]

Did they?

Pei Jingzhou replied, “No.”

This answer was both expected and unexpected. It seemed that the bulging stomach in the dream was a scene that had been formed by imagination, but she felt that it was very real…

Pei Jingzhou looked at her and said seriously, “If you want a child in the future, we’ll adopt one. If you want it now, you can adopt it now. I’ll arrange it. You can go to the orphanage in a few days.”

Li Xiwu asked, “Why must we adopt him?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “It’s fine if you don’t want to adopt it. Make it into a test tube, if you can accept it.”

The fact that he said this so frankly meant that he had no intention of hiding the fact that he could not give birth anymore.

Li Xiwu had joked in front of Qiao Qiao when she said that Pei Jingzhou couldn’t give birth because she had checked that there was nothing wrong with her and that she was fertile. It must be Pei Jingzhou’s fault that she was not pregnant.

It was common for men to undergo vasectomy, but Li Xiwu would never believe it if it happened to Pei Jingzhou. Therefore, she joked in front of Qiao Qiao that Pei Jingzhou couldn’t give birth.

Unexpectedly, Pei Jingzhou heard it. However, he did not explain anything at that time. He only said that if he wanted a child, he would adopt it or make test tubes.

She hesitated for a few seconds. Although she did not believe it, she still asked the question in her heart, “Fourth Brother, did you have a vasectomy?

Pei Jingzhou guessed that Li Xiwu would ask this question. He said, “No.”

The atmosphere fell silent again. For a moment, neither of them spoke. After a long time, Li Xiwu slowly said, “Actually, I don’t believe it either. It’s just that I’m still very curious, so I asked.”

Pei Jingzhou slowly stood up and sat down beside her instead of sitting opposite her. He pulled her over and only felt at ease when he touched her. “I should have told you about this, but there hasn’t been a suitable occasion to mention it. Since you’re asking now, I’ll tell you.”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows. “Huh?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I was seriously injured four years ago.”

Seriously injured four years ago. Li Xiwu suddenly remembered that Han Qianye had told her that Pei Jingzhou had been in the ICU for seventeen days. However, at that time, Han Qianye had deliberately messed up the time and said that it was six or seven years ago.

After that, she corrected the time and said that it was four years ago. Thinking of this, she asked, “Was it the time when you were in the ICU for seventeen days?”

Pei Jingzhou’s knuckles curled slightly as he held Li XiWU’S arm. He was a little emotional. “You remember now?

“No,” Li Xiwu said truthfully. “Previously, I asked Auntie indirectly. She told me that you were in the ICU for seventeen days.” After saying that, she confirmed to him again, “You said that you were seriously injured four years ago. Is that the time?”

Pei Jingzhou replied, “Yes.”

Li Xiwu held her breath and her reaction was slow. “What exactly did you experience four years ago?

Her expression spoke volumes of her urgency. She desperately wanted to know what had happened to Pei Jingzhou four years ago.

Seeing that she was anxious, Pei Jingzhou tightened his grip on her and pulled her into his arms. He rested his chin on the top of her head. “I had experienced… numerous difficulties and brought you back to home.”

Li Xiwu felt the reality of Pei Jingzhou hugging her tightly. “So, the price for bringing me back is to stay in the ICU for seventeen days…”

Pei Jingzhou said, “That’s nothing.”

Li Xiwu pulled out of his arms and said stubbornly, “Seventeen days in the ICU, not a normal ward. Do you know what this means? It means that you were loitering at the entrance of Hell for seventeen days and could be arrested at any time!

Li Xiwu lost control of her emotions. “If you hadn’t survived back then, I…

wouldn’t have you.”

This last sentence touched Pei Jingzhou. He reached out and pulled her back into his arms. “I was conscious for eleven days among those seventeen days in the ICU.”

Li Xiwu choked.

Pei Jingzhou said, “In those seventeen days, I just kept thinking about you and survived.”

Li Xiwu’s eyes welled up with tears.

That was Pei Jingzhou i s most difficult year.

Every year, he would fly to Country T for more than 200 days. That year, he did not see Li Xiwu for more than six months. It was because Ms. MO Zhu was sick and Li Xiwu had to stay by Ms. MO Zhu’s side to recuperate. Therefore, Pei

Jingzhou compromised and did not go to Country T to look for her. During those six months, he had never stopped contacting Li Xiwu.

He often videocalled, too.

He was worried that because of Ms. MO Zhu’s health, she would not care about her own health. He was worried that she would lose weight, that she would not sleep well, and that she would be bored and have no one to relieve her boredom.

Fortunately, she was in good condition every time she was on a video call. She even looked better and better. Her originally small face was now round and smooth.

He relaxed a little

This was because she had taken good care of herself during the few months when she was accompanying Ms. MO Zhu for chemotherapy in Country T.

Later on, he went to Country T because he found out that there was going to be chaos in County T. He was going to pick her up..
