Chapter 339: Pei Jingzhou Is the Qualified Husband

Translator: Henyee Translations      Editor: Henyee Translations

Actually, Li Xiwu already had an answer in her heart.

Youyou was the child she gave birth to back then.

It was just that she didn’t know what happened later that caused her to part with Youyou. Later on, she experienced that turmoil and lost her memory after returning to the country. She completely forgot about the existence of that child.

No, losing her memory…

She did not lose her memory because of that turmoil. Pei Jingzhou had asked the hypnotist to seize her past memories and seal them.

“Now do you know why I want you to regain your memories?” Gu Lanshi said to her.

Li Xiwu was stunned. She didn’t react at all.

Gu Lanshi stood up and walked to Li Xiwu, then squatted down in front of her. He looked up at her. “You did intend to hide it from Pei Jingzhou after you got pregnant, but it’s obvious that you can’t hide it. The reason why I said that Pei Jingzhou didn’t know about your pregnancy was because I wanted you to come over. If I hadn’t said that, you probably wouldn’t have come.”

With that, Gu Lanshi reached out and held Li Xiwu’s hand. “Pei Jingzhou knew what happened back then. He hated me, so after he took you away, he erased all your past memories. Before this, I didn’t know that he had taken you away. I could only take Youyou to various places until I realized that he had hidden you by his side.”

Li Xiwu did not move and let Gu Lanshi hold her hand. His grip tightened bit by bit, enveloping her hand firmly in his.

“Li You.” Gu Lanshi called Li Xiwu’s name in a low voice. “I couldn’t bear to disturb you when I saw that you had a new life, but Youyou often asked me why her mother didn’t want her. I blamed myself and didn’t know how to tell her. It’s not that her mother didn’t want her, but…

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “Gu Lanshi.” Gu Lanshi stared at her.

Li Xiwu said softly, “Don’t lie to me.”

Gu Lanshi was stunned.

Li Xiwu repeated, “You’d better not lie to me.” With that, Li Xiwu broke free from his hand, her expression colder than before. “I hate lying the most. I’ll recover my memories. If the memories I remember are different from what you say, do you know the consequences?

Gu Lanshi suddenly smiled.

Li Xiwu asked, “What are you laughing at?”

Gu Lanji said, “I’m laughing, because time can indeed change a person. Four years ago, you could still give birth to Youyou without Pei Jingzhou knowing.

Four years later, you can also disown Youyou because of Pei Jingzhou.”

The words sounded self-deprecating. In fact, it was also Gu Lanshi’s mockery.

Li Xiwu seemed to be agitated by this sentence. Her emotions clearly fluctuated greatly, and she subconsciously retorted, “It’s not that I don’t acknowledge my daughter.”

Gu Lanshi smiled. “Is that so?

“But the premise is that I have to confirm if Youyou is my daughter,” Li Xiwu said.

Gu Lanshi slowly stood up. “Yes, you should indeed confirm if Youyou is your daughter first. The truth can’t be based on my words. I have to let you see the truth with your own eyes.” As Gu Lanshi spoke, he raised his hand and looked at his watch. “It’s almost five o’clock. You should go back. If you’re late, Pei Jingzhou will probably look for you, right?”

Li Xiwu also stood up. “When are you going to let me see Youyou?

Gu Lanshi said, “Tomorrow.”

Li Xiwu frowned.

Gu Lanshi raised his hand and reached out to Li Xiwu, subconsciously wanting to smooth her frown. Just as his hand was about to approach, Li Xiwu instinctively dodged. Gu Lanshi’s hand froze in midair. Then, he said, “Don’t keep frowning.”

It would have been better if she hadn’t said anything. Once she did, Li Xiwu frowned even more.

Gu Lanshi retracted his hand and hung it unnaturally by his side. He continued to finish what he had not finished. “Come here at two-thirty tomorrow. I’ll take you to pick Youyou up. Then, we’ll do a paternity test.”

Li Xiwu asked in confusion, “Pick up? Who did you leave Youyou with?”

Gu Lanshi smiled and said helplessly, “Youyou is already in kindergarten.” Li Xiwu was stunned.

Gu Lanshi said, “Children can go to kindergarten after the age of three. If their parents are capable, they will also go to early school in advance. Youyou is already four years and three months old. She is already in kindergarten.”

Li Xiwu shook her head. “Sorry, I don’t know.”

She had never taken care of a child before, so she naturally ignored the fact that a child had already gone to kindergarten at the age of four. She even wondered how she could make up for the four years she had missed if Youyou was really her daughter.

Gu Lanshi saw Li Xiwu’s guilty expression and reminded her, “I won’t tell

Youyou that you’ll pick her up tomorrow.”

Li Xiwu didn’t ask why. She was just wondering if Gu Lanshi was afraid that she would snatch Youyou away.

Gu Lanshi could tell what Li Xiwu was thinking and explained, “If I tell Youyou in advance, what if you don’t come tomorrow? Will her happiness turn into nothing?”

Li Xiwu said firmly, “I’ll come.”

Gu Lanshi said, “No one can say for sure about last-minute changes, even if you swear now. If you can come tomorrow, just come to my place at 2:30.

Youyou’s school end at 3:00 sharp.”

Li Xiwu did not know what she was feeling when she left Gu Lanshi’s house. She returned to the car for a long time, still in a daze.

Buzz. Buzz.

Yuanyuan sent her a WeChat message asking when she was going back.

Li Xiwu replied: “On the way back to the company.”

After sending the voice message, she tossed the phone onto the passenger seat and prepared to drive back to the office. After a moment, she took the phone back, found the call history, and dialed Qiao Qiao’s number.

She couldn’t drive in her current state. She might as well relieve her mood.

Qiao Qiao could enlighten her.

As long as Qiao Qiao’s phone was by her side, she would always answer Li Xiwu’s call immediately. At this moment, Qiao Qiao, who picked up the phone, still didn’t know what had happened to Li Xiwu. She called out crisply. “Bae~ Did you miss me?

Li Xiwu nodded and said, “I miss you.”

Qiao Qiao said, “There’s nothing I can do even if you miss me. I can only strive to return to the capital as soon as possible. When the time comes, I’ll hug you and kiss you a few times. Don’t mind my saliva.”

Li Xiwu forced a smile. “Mm.”

Through the phone, Qiao Qiao couldn’t sense Li Xiwu’s emotions. She talked to herself. Gradually realizing that Li Xiwu had stopped talking, Qiao Qiao realized that something was wrong and quickly asked, “Bae, what’s wrong? Did something upset you?

Li Xiwu was a little distracted. Hearing Qiao Qiao’s caring words, she said softly, “It’s nothing.”

Qiao Qiao said, “Cut it out. If you’re honest, I’ll forgive you. If you resist, I’ll punish you severely.” Li Xiwu smiled. “Qiao’er.”

Qiao Qiao said, “Huh?”

Li Xiwu asked, “What do you think of Pei Jingzhou?”

Qiao Qiao immediately realized the crux of the problem. “Did you quarrel with President Pei?”

“No,” she denied automatically.

Qiao Qiao said, “You’re still denying it. You must have quarreled when you suddenly mentioned President Pei.”

Li Xiwu didn’t explain. “Why don’t you answer me first?”

“Well, are you referring to President Pei’s external appearance, or his wealth? Or in some other aspects?” Qiao Qiao asked.

Li Xiwu said, “Let’s talk about your evaluation of him.”

Qiao Qiao thought for a moment. “President Pei is rich, handsome, and a qualified husband. Back then, you thought you were a substitute, but he was so good to you. But now everythings out, you’re not a substitute. He’s so good to you.”

Li Xiwu smiled. “Your evaluation is quite high.”

Qiao Qiao chuckled. “Although President Pei is a little dictatorial and fierce, the truth can’t be twisted. I’m telling the truth.”

Li Xiwu took a deep breath and asked slowly, “Then if, I mean, if you had someone like Pei Jingzhou by your side who was so good to you, would you still fall in love with someone else easily?”

Qiao Qiao immediately grasped the crux of the problem. “Bae, did you cheat?”
