Li Xiwu said this unconsciously. When Pei Jingzhou asked her why she was sorry, Li Xiwu suddenly grabbed Pei Jingzhou’s wrist tightly. The next second, she sat up and stared at him in a daze.

Pei Jingzhou asked softly, “What’s wrong?

Li Xiwu’s breathing tightened. “What, what, what did I just say?

Seeing Li Xiwu like this, Pei Jingzhou chuckled. “Have you forgotten what you said?”

Li Xiwu swallowed and looked a little nervous. Pei Jingzhou could tell that something was wrong and asked gently, “Is there anything you want to tell

Li Xiwu subconsciously shook her head.

Perhaps it was because the heater was too strong, or because her body heated up easily after drinking, or because she was nervous, a thin layer of sweat appeared on Li Xiwu’s forehead. After a short period of consciousness, she felt as if all her strength had been drained from her body. When she got up, she could not focus. Pei Jingzhou supported her. “Where do you want to go?

Li Xiwu replied in a low voice, “I’m tired. I want to go to sleep.”

With that, Pei Jingzhou carried her back to the bedroom. He placed her on the bed and removed her slippers. He considerately adjusted the pillow so that she could lie more comfortably. When he was done, he slowly got up. Li Xiwu held his hand and refused to let go.

Pei Jingzhou said gently, “I’m not leaving.”

Only then did Li Xiwu release his hand. Pei Jingzhou sat by the bed and accompanied her for a while. Only when she barely fell asleep did he get up and go to the bathroom.

That night, Li Xiwu did not sleep well. She even had a nightmare.

In her dream, she was standing on the edge of a cliff with a baby in her arms. The baby was crying loudly. She was at a loss and did not know how to coax him. In the blink of an eye, Pei Jingzhou appeared in front of her and reached out to snatch the baby from her arms.

She was unwilling to give the baby to Pei Jingzhou. At this moment, Pei Jingzhou questioned her, “Why did you betray me?

She shook her head, looking very helpless. Her lips moved repeatedly, wanting to explain something, but she did not know how to explain it to Pei Jingzhou.

At this moment, the baby in her arms was snatched away by Pei Jingzhou. She wanted to snatch the baby back, but Pei Jingzhou raised the baby and questioned her, “Is this the evidence that you betrayed me?”

She shook her head in tears. “No, no…

The next second, Pei Jingzhou threw the baby off the cliff without hesitation in front of her. Her eyes widened. “Don’t

The moment she shouted, Li Xiwu woke up. All she could see was darkness. She couldn’t see anything.

She was breathing rapidly when the lights suddenly lit up. She subconsciously closed her eyes, and the hand that reached out from beside her blocked her eyes, covering her from the sudden light.

Li Xiwu was drenched in sweat. She slowly opened her eyes to adjust to the light, but she saw Pei Jingzhou’s hand blocking her eyes.

Pei Jingzhou’s voice sounded. “Did you have a nightmare?

Li Xiwu was sweating profusely and her heart was beating like a drum. When she heard Pei Jingzhou’s voice, she did not feel at ease. Instead, she shrank back in fear and avoided Pei Jingzhou’s touch.

Seeing this, Pei Jingzhou’s hand froze in midair for a moment.

Li Xiwu came back to her senses and realized that her careless behavior had hurt Pei Jingzhou. She explained, “I-I had a nightmare just now. This nightmare is very scary. I haven’t recovered yet.”

Pei Jingzhou looked down at her. “Am I in the nightmare?

This question stumped Li Xiwu. She was stunned and speechless.

Pei Jingzhou reached out to her. Li Xiwu understood and slowly reached out her hand and placed it in his palm. Then, she moved her body over bit by bit and leaned into Pei Jingzhou’s arms.

The fear from before dissipated, and she felt much more at ease now. Her soft voice asked, “What time is it?”

Pei Jingzhou looked at the digital clock on the bedside table. “It’s 5:07 in the morning. It’s still early. Sleep a little longer.”

To be honest, Li Xiwu could no longer sleep. Although she felt a little more at ease, she felt uneasy when she closed her eyes. She leaned against Pei Jingzhou’s arm and searched for a more comfortable position, like a cat in his arms.

As she arched, she heard Pei Jingzhou grunt. Stunned, she looked up at him.

Pei Jingzhou’s gaze was subtle. Li Xiwu knew that she had provoked him early in the morning, so she did not plan to extinguish the fire just like that. She took the opportunity to support his arm and climb up, placing her arm on his shoulder.

Pei Jingzhou looked down at her. “Mm?”

A sound came from the tip of his nose, echoing in Li Xiwu’s heart. Seeking something urgently, she took the initiative to raise her head and kiss him.

Actually, what should have happened last night should have happened naturally. Because of that small episode, it had been moved to this morning. It was not too late. The atmosphere was gradually getting better. It was very suitable.

Li Xiwu was selfish, so she took the initiative to kiss Pei Jingzhou. Although Pei Jingzhou did not respond inch by inch and allowed her to do whatever she wanted, the situation was about to become a mess.

At the critical moment, he pressed her hand down and pushed her away. “Sleep a little longer, or you won’t be able to get up later.”

Li Xiwu looked at him steadily. Pei Jingzhou knew what she meant, but she did not expect him to reject her. He made her anxious and pushed him back. “Pei Jingzhou, don’t you want to?” Pei Jingzhou did not answer.

Li Xiwu said directly, “I want to.”

Pei Jingzhou’s eyes darkened, and his voice was low and heavy. “Are you sure?

Li Xiwu said in a muffled voice, “I can’t sleep anymore. I can’t just get up and sit here in the cold and count the hours until dawn.”

Pei Jingzhou laughed. “So I became a tool?”

“Do you want to be this tool?” she asked.

Pei Jingzhou did not say if he wanted to or not. He had always proven it with his actions. He flipped over and pressed Li Xiwu under him, taking the initiative. The lights weren’t turned off. They were switched to warm-toned lights, flickering as figures bobbed up and down.

Li Xiwu was not sleepy at first. After that, she fell asleep.

Pei Jingzhou, on the other hand, was full of energy. He carried her to take a shower and even fed her water to moisten her throat. When he returned to bed, he was afraid that she would catch a cold, so he put on her pajamas before leaving.

Pei Jingzhou was buttoning his shirt as he came out of the bedroom. There were three unbuttoned ones left, so casually open. He picked up the phone he’d left on the sofa the night before It was after six-fifty. Soon it would be seven.

He found Chen Xin’s number and dialed it. In less than two to three seconds, Chen Xin picked up the phone and shouted in a low voice, “Mr. Pei.”

Pei Jingzhou asked, “Did you see it?”

Chen Xin said, “After Madam left yesterday, Gu Lanshi didn’t go out again.”

Pei Jingzhou walked to the floor-to-ceiling window and looked at the neon lights outside. “He didn’t go out last night either?”

Chen Xin replied, “No.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Then continue guarding.”

Chen Xin hesitated for a moment before asking, “Mr. Pei, will you go over when Madam goes to see Gu Lanshi again today?”

Pei Jingzhou lowered his voice. “If she goes again, stop her.”

Chen Xin said, “Yes.”

Pei Jingzhou frowned and said softly, “Forget it.”

Chen Xin was stunned. “…Huh?”

The sky lit up quickly. In the blink of an eye, the first rays of dawn appeared. Pei Jingzhou turned around and walked towards the kitchen. “It’s dawn. I have to make breakfast for her.”
