Chapter 365: Siblings with Different Personalities

Li Xiwu cowered. “…Don’t.”

Pei Jingzhou buried his face in her neck and rubbed it gently. “I drank two more glasses tonight.”

Li Xiwu laughed when she heard that. “The smell of alcohol is so faint. It’s probably the first and last glass of two glasses.”

Otherwise, who would dare to force Pei Jingzhou to drink? Even if an old friend dared, Pei Jingzhou had a way to avoid it.

Pei Jingzhou nodded. The warm kiss lingered on Li Xiwu’s neck, making her feel a little itchy. She raised her hand and pushed him gently. “Go take a shower.”

“Mm,” Pei Jingzhou replied, but he had no intention of leaving her neck.

Seeing that he could not stand up, Li Xiwu moved her hand to Pei Jingzhou’s waist and twisted it.

“Hiss…” Pei Jingzhou hissed in pain, but he did not retreat from Li Xiwu. Instead, he tightened his grip on her lower back. His fingertips slid to the top of her back and stopped at the bra button.

It was a dangerous gesture. All it took was a gentle flick of his fingertip and the buckle behind her would be lifted.

“Wait, wait a minute…”

Before she could stop him, his fingertips had already picked open the bra button. Li Xiwu felt the front suddenly relax. Right on the heels of that, that hand became more and more wanton. Li Xiwu pressed his hand down. “Fourth Brother, not here.”

Pei Jingzhou quickly replied, “I know.”

Why did he still mess around when he knew! There were no longer only two people in the house. Now, there was Youyou and Auntie Lin. It would be very awkward if they made any noise and were heard.

However, Pei Jingzhou knew his limits and would not go overboard. Because he had drunk tonight, Pei Jingzhou was afraid that the alcohol smell from the meal would be despised by Li Xiwu, so he kissed Li Xiwu’s neck.

Li Xiwu was helpless against Pei Jingzhou, so she could only threaten him. ‘Go take a shower. If you don’t go now, stay alone tonight. I’ll sleep with Youyou later.”

Pei Jingzhou chuckled. “Okay, I’ll go right away.”

With that, Pei Jingzhou retracted his hand. Before returning to the bedroom to wash up, Pei Jingzhou stood outside the guest bedroom for a while, as if he wanted to go ln.

Li Xiwu noticed and put Pei Jingzhou’s jacket away. She walked over and said,

“Youyou should be asleep now. If you want to go in and take a look, you can.

She shouldn’t wake up. However, try to be as quiet as possible.”

Pei Jingzhou replied, “Okay.”

He did open the door to the guest bedroom, but he didn’t go in. He didn’t turn on the lights. He just stood in the doorway for a moment, then came out and closed the door quietly behind him.

Seeing this scene, Li Xiwu smiled knowingly and went back to the bedroom to wait for him.

Half an hour later, after washing up, Pei Jingzhou wrapped himself in a robe and went to bed.

Li Xiwu was sitting and waiting for him. When Pei Jingzhou reached out, she slapped him back. “I have something to tell you.”

Pei Jingzhou reached out again. “You can do whatever you want. What I do won’t affect each other.”

Li Xiwu was caught between laughter and tears. She pressed his hand down.

“Listen to me first.”

Pei Jingzhou looked at her serious expression and smiled. “Huh?”

Li Xiwu told Pei Jingzhou about Gao Yueban’s invitation to the parent-child variety show. Pei Jingzhou twirled a strand of her hair with his fingertips and played with it casually. After hearing her words, he asked her, “Do you want to go?”

“Not really, but I think I have to tell you,” Li Xiwu said. Pei Jingzhou paused and looked at her. Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows and asked with a smile, “Were you touched by your wife’s behavior?

Pei Jingzhou leaned over. “Yes, I’m touched.”

It was clearly a casual tone, but his expression was so serious.

Li Xiwu continued, “I’m not an artist. Your identity isn’t suitable to be in front of the camera all the time. Besides, the production team has arranged for a child to be taken care of for us. Why don’t we take Youyou ourselves? But I don’t have any plans to expose Youyou yet.”

This was Li Xiwu’s clear attitude. Everything else was a small matter. She did not want to expose Youyou’s existence too early. All she wanted now was to live a stable life with Youyou and Pei Jingzhou.

Pei Jingzhou looked at her. “Is there anywhere you want to go?

Li Xiwu said, “Hmm?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “We’ll bring Youyou out to play. It’s just the three of us.” Li Xiwu smiled and asked, “Next year?

Pei Jingzhou said, “There are still ten days until New Year’s Day. It’s indeed next year.”

When Auntie Lin mentioned that it was almost New Year’s Day, Li Xiwu did not think that it was almost time to welcome the new year. Now that Pei

Jingzhou reminded her, Li Xiwu realized that it would soon be a new year. She took the initiative to move over and lean into Pei Jingzhou’s arms. “After the annual meeting, which is after New Year’s Day…” With that, she looked up at Pei Jingzhou and paused for a few seconds before continuing. “I’ve always planned to go to Country T to meet Madam Di Xin. Why don’t we take Youyou to Country T after New Years Day?”

Pei Jingzhou said, ‘You want to see Madam Di Xin to ask about her pregnancy back then?”

“Yeah.” Li Xiwu nodded. “I dreamed of sitting and talking to Madam Di Xin when I was pregnant in Country T back then. Other than Gu Lanshi, Madam Di Xin was also someone who knew about my pregnancy, so I wanted to meet her.”

Pei Jingzhou pondered for a moment and replied, “Okay.”

Li Xiwu noticed the slight change in Pei Jingzhou’s expression. “Fourth

Brother, you should be investigating already, right?”

From the day he recognized Youyou, Pei Jingzhou should have started investigating what had happened back then. However, she did not know how much Pei Jingzhou had found out so far. She sat up and looked at Pei Jingzhou seriously. “Fourth Brother, if you’ve already found out the truth about my pregnancy back then, I hope you won’t hide it from me.”

She really wanted to know.

Pei Jingzhou sat up and pulled her into his arms. “Back then, you could give birth to Youyou without me knowing. I only know about it now, but I’m only starting to investigate now. It’s no different from adding a lot of trouble. If I find out the truth, I’ll tell you.”

This last sentence was his promise and assurance to her.

Li Xiwu’s voice was muffled. “Actually, I suspect that when I was brought back to the country by you back then, my mental state was terrible when I woke up. It wasn’t just because of my parents’ death. I should have thought that Youyou was gone too…”

Actually, Pei Jingzhou had also thought of this.

Otherwise, why would she be in so much pain when he went to see her after he was discharged? Her mental state was at its peak. He was still afraid when he thought about it. If his hypnosis had been a step later, Li Xiwu’s mental state would definitely have suffered aftereffects.

“Other than meeting Madam Di Xin, there’s also Yaoyao. I miss him quite a lot.” At the mention of Yaoyao, Li Xiwu’s face was full of smiles. “Madam Di Xin said that Yaoyao has slight autism. I wonder if he’ll feel better after returning to Country T.”

Yaoyao’s stubborn appearance appeared in Pei Jingzhou’s mind. Gradually,

Yaoyao’s stubborn look formed a sharp contrast with Youyou’s smiling face. He said lightly, “Two children with completely different personalities.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “I learned from Madam Di Xin that Yaoyao was originally an orphan..”
