Chapter 375: Pei Jingzhou Is Henpecked (1)

Translator: Henyee Translations       Editor: Henyee Translations

In Li Xiwu’s opinion, this expression meant that there was someone else other than Pei Jingzhou in the office.

Li Xiwu asked, “Who’s here?”

“It’s, it’s…” Wang Kaiheng stammered.

Li Xiwu had already seen through it and smiled. “It seems that Secretary Wang is too free usually. You’re so free that you don’t even know how to open your mouth to speak.”

Wang Kaiheng:

She went forward and knocked lightly on the door. Just as she was about to push the door open and enter, Chen Xin suddenly came out of the office. Seeing Li Xiwu at the door, he asked in a normal tone, “Madam, when did you come?

Li Xiwu said, “I just arrived.”

With that, she was about to go in when Chen Xin stopped her. “Madam!” Li Xiwu frowned and looked at Chen Xin in confusion. “What’s wrong?

Usually, when Li Xiwu came to the company, Chen Xin would welcome her in immediately. Today, Chen Xin stopped her outside. Li Xiwu couldn’t help but wonder what Pei Jingzhou was doing inside. Or who he is meeting.

“Madam, Mr. Pei is on an important call,” Chen Xin explained.

Li Xiwu took a deep breath and said softly, “If he’s meeting someone important, I understand that I can’t go in and disturb him, but he’s just answering the phone. Why can’t I go in?

Chen Xin knew very well that his words were a little clumsy just now, but if he let Madam in at this time and saw that woman, it would probably be difficult to explain. He did not expect Madam to suddenly come over at this time.

“Chen Xin?” Li Xiwu called out.

Chen Xin came back to his senses and quickly replied, “Aye.” When he answered, Chen Xin did not dare to look at Li Xiwu at all, afraid that Li Xiwu would see through his panic.

Little did he know that the more he avoided her gaze, the less he dared to look at Li Xiwu, the more it meant that there was something wrong. Li Xiwu did not intend to ask anything else from Chen Xin. She pushed him forward and pushed open the door to enter.


Before Chen Xin could stop her, the door was opened by Li Xiwu. Just as Li Xiwu was about to enter, a woman suddenly appeared at the door. It was a woman Li Xiwu had never seen before.

It was a very unfamiliar face.

The woman was wearing a dark green cheongsam with a high slit. The cheongsam was printed with roses and permed flowers. Because the slit beside her legs was extremely high, it made her legs look fair and long. They were extremely seductive.

As the saying went, flirtatious, charming, and extraordinary. When Li Xiwu sized up Li Xiwu, she was also sizing her up. When they looked at each other, she covered her mouth and smiled. “You’re Mrs. Pei, right?”

Li Xiwu replied calmly, “Yes.”

Logically speaking, Li Xiwu should be very vigilant when a charming woman like Xiang Wanning appeared in Pei Jingzhou’s office.

But she realized that her emotions were calm. Was there a hint of anger? Yes, when Chen Xin deliberately lied to her just now. Other than that, she did not feel angry at all, because she did not think Pei Jingzhou would do anything behind her back.

She did not know why she was so firm in her belief, but she trusted Pei Jingzhou.

Xiang Wanning narrowed her slender fox-like eyes and said with a smile, guess those small employees wanted to take credit when I came to the company, so they reported it to Mrs. Pei, right?”

Li Xiwu smiled. “No.”

“Isn’t that so? I thought Mrs. Pei heard the commotion and specially came over. From the looks of it, Mrs. Pei is more patient than I thought.”

Chen Xin couldn’t stand it anymore. “Mrs. He, you…” Halfway through his sentence, Chen Xin saw Pei Jingzhou coming out and immediately stopped talking.

Xiang Wanning asked Chen Xin with a smile, “What about me?

Pei Jingzhou said, “You can leave.”

When she heard Pei Jingzhou’s voice, she did not turn around. She leaned her upper body against the door frame and smiled charmingly. “Compared to Mrs. Pei’s calmness, President Pei seems to be more impatient. I couldn’t tell that President Pei is also very henpecked.”

Li Xiwu looked up at Pei Jingzhou. She had seen him since he came out.

Pei Jingzhou’s voice was cold. “This is my company. Mrs. He, please save some dignity for me. If news of me being henpecked spreads from Mrs. He, as the boss, where will my dignity be in the company in the future?

Xiang Wanning smiled when she heard that. She played with her newly made burgundy manicure and said slowly, “President Pei is right. If I accidentally spread the news, not only will President Pei lose his dignity, but Mrs.. Pei will probably become a famous fierce woman in the entire aristocratic circle!”
