Learning That Li Xiwu Was Going On A Blind Date

Xue Jinzhu looked like she was shocked. However, Li Xiwu did not know why Xue Jinzhu had such an expression.

Qi Jiangchi asked three consecutive questions. “Who else do you think she is? My assistant? At your disposal?”

One question for all.

Xue Jinzhu felt very guilty and quickly shook her head. Then, she pulled out the seat from before and said to Li Xiwu in a fawning manner, “Ma’am, please sit.” She even used the word ‘ma’am’.

Li Xiwu looked at Xue Jinzhu and raised her eyebrows in confusion.

Xue Jinzhu felt even more guilty. She lowered her eyes. “I’m sorry, I didn’t know you were Miss Li.”

Li Xiwu’s eyebrows lowered and her voice was calm. “It’s fine. Just sit.”

“No, no.” Xue Jinzhu was someone who put on airs in front of Qi Jiangchi, but she lowered her attitude in front of Li Xiwu. “This is Miss Li’s seat. It’s better for you to sit. I’ll stand beside you.”

“Suit yourself.” Li Xiwu was not sure what Xue Jinzhu was thinking. She went forward and sat down.

Xue Jinzhu leaned over and asked like a maid, “Miss Li, do you want coffee? I’ll make it for you.”

Li Xiwu didn’t flinch. “No need.”

Just a second ago, Xue Jinzhu was still ordering Li Xiwu around. The next second, she took the initiative to please Li Xiwu.

On the other hand, Qi Jiangchi smiled when he saw this scene. “Xue Jinzhu, are you looking down on me?”

Xue Jinzhu stood up straight and patted her chest. “I’m always keeping President Qi in my heart.”

Qi Jiangchi’s smile faded. “Alright, let’s get down to business.”

The official matter was none other than Xue Jinzhu’s subsequent resource arrangements. Whether to film or participate in the debut of the female group first, Xue Jinzhu had a lot of say in this matter. However, she did not make the decision on her own. Instead, she asked Li Xiwu’s opinion first.

“Miss Li, what do you think?”

Li Xiwu raised a hand to her jaw. “Depends on yourself.”

Xue Jinzhu was very obedient. “I’ll listen to Miss Li.”

Li Xiwu looked up at her. Xue Jinzhu smiled at her and openly showed how much she wanted to please her.

Qi Jiangchi’s smile deepened. “Xue Jinzhu, it seems that you’re very satisfied with your manager.”

Xue Jinzhu said, “Of course.”

Li Xiwu had mixed feelings, so she didn’t say much.

When they were almost done talking, Li Xiwu gave a plan for Xue Jinzhu’s direction. Most of it involved professionalism. Xue Jinzhu didn’t understand and her mind was filled with the cards for tonight’s meeting. Only when Li Xiwu looked at her did she immediately straighten up and smile.

After coming out of the office, Xue Jinzhu walked beside Li Xiwu. “Miss Li, do I have to attend acting class first?”

Li Xiwu said, “Yes.”

Xue Jinzhu asked, “Can I join the production team after the acting class?”

“We have to go through the process of signing for the new show. Take your acting class for the time being,” Li Xiwu said, looking at her wristwatch.

It had been more than half an hour. She wondered if Han Qianye had left first. She stood still and turned around to say to Xue Jinzhu, “I still have something on. Contact me on WeChat. Come, let’s add each other on WeChat.”

With that, Li Xiwu took out her phone. Xue Jinzhu quickly took out her phone and opened the QR code. She was making a note when she heard Miss Li ask her, “Did he tell you anything?”

“He?” Xue Jinzhu was stunned for a moment before she reacted. “Oh, he asked me to learn more from you. Don’t worry about the resources. You will arrange them for me.”

Li Xiwu said, “Got it.” She turned to go.

Xue Jinzhu stopped her. “Miss Li.”

Li Xiwu turned. “Yes?”

Xue Jinzhu took half a step forward. “I’m sorry about that day at the hotel.”

Li Xiwu said calmly, “There’s no need to tell me this. If you have any requests, ask him. He will satisfy you.”

Xue Jinzhu pouted. “That’s true. I accompanied him all night that day before he agreed to let me enter the entertainment industry to arrange resources for me.”

Li Xiwu smiled but said nothing. At this moment, Xue Jinzhu’s phone rang.

Xue Jinzhu picked up her phone and looked at it. “It’s him.”

Li Xiwu said quietly, “Go and answer it.”

Xue Jinzhu waved at Li Xiwu and turned to answer the phone on the other side.

Li Xiwu felt disgusted. Pei Jingzhou, oh Pei Jingzhou, you really know how to hurt one’s heart.

She went to the office downstairs.

Li Xiwu saw that the cameraman was still there and knew that Han Qianye had not left. She should be waiting for her. She felt slightly guilty. She had said half an hour, but she had added more than twenty minutes.

She walked in and the cameraman pointed the camera at her. Two or three minutes ago she’d been talking about work, and two or three minutes later she was on a variety show live.

“You’re back.” Han Qianye did not get up when she saw Li Xiwu return. She looked a little unhappy.

Li Xiwu apologized first. “Sorry about the delay up there.”

Han Qianye closed her eyes and remained silent.

It was almost noon, and it was time to eat. Li Xiwu took out her phone and opened the Meituan app. “What do you want to eat for lunch?”

Han Qianye said, “Anything.” Her tone was neutral.

“There’s a Sichuan restaurant I frequent. Can you eat Sichuan food?” Li asked.

Han Qianye said, “Anything.”

Li Xiwu got up. “Then let’s get moving.”

Li Xiwu drove to the Sichuan restaurant while Han Qianye sat in the front passenger seat.

[Brainless doesn’t look too happy today.]

[Li Xiwu is so busy with work. Doesn’t her mother-in-law understand?]

[They agreed on half an hour, but we’ve been waiting for almost an hour. Aren’t you allowed to be angry for a while?]

[Li Xiwu is too busy. Han Qianye has been sitting in the office and waiting for so long. I feel that there’s nothing to see today. It’s still more exciting on Group One’s side.]

[Group One entered the mall and kept shopping. Just the expenses in the Cartier shop are more than 600,000 yuan. We can only be envious of the world of the rich.]

[Min Hanrong is really good to her daughter-in-law.]

The comments were all discussing the first group.

Because Han Qianye was in a bad mood, the two of them did not interact much during the live broadcast. Their popularity was a little low, so there were not many comments.

Gao Yueban, who was sitting in front of the monitor, looked doubtful. “Ah, this…”

The assistant said, “Director Gao, didn’t you say that Miss Li is the walking script? But they are the least popular today.”

Gao Yueban frowned. “Let’s wait and see. It might have a reversal.”

However, Gao Yueban was too hopeful. Not only did Group Four’s mother-in-law and daughter-in-law’s live broadcast not have any reversal, but their popularity was also at the bottom. As they did not do anything, they just drank coffee and read magazines.

Finally, the live broadcast ended at five.

In the car, Han Qianye said to the driver, “Take me back to the Pei residence first.”

The driver adjusted the GPS.

Li Xiwu remained silent. As they drove slowly, Li Xiwu’s phone vibrated twice. She clicked on it. It was a WeChat voice message from Qiao Qiao.

She deliberately changed the speaker to the receiver mode, but she ignored the fact that the volume of the receiver mode was also very loud. Han Qianye, who was beside her, heard Qiao Qiao’s voice clearly.

Qiao Qiao: [Bae, did you go? I saw in the group chat that there are two high-quality men who are going on the blind date tonight. You should pay more attention to them. I’ve figured it out. Anyway, it’s for yourself. If you think it’s really good, hold hands and look everywhere.]

Li Xiwu took down her phone and was about to type a reply to Qiao Qiao. Suddenly sensing something, she glanced sideways and saw Han Qianye looking at her.

Before she could speak, Han Qianye asked, “Are you going on a blind date?”
