Chapter 378: This Relationship Seems to Be a Little Messy

Translator: Henyee Translations      Editor: Henyee Translations

Li Xiwu said, “She just looks very maturely dressed. I think she’s only in her early twenties.”

This was a judgment of perception and vision.

The first impression that Mrs. He gave people was a very mature and charming impression. If they didn’t talk much, Li Xiwu would probably think so. However, after chatting for a while, Li Xiwu realized that the other party should be very young.

And when she said early twenties, she was probably in her early twenties. She was so young. To marry an old man in his fifties who could be her father and only ask for glory and wealth?

But so what if she was rich? Everyone had their own way of living. She couldn’t speculate.

Pei Jingzhou played with Li Xiwu’s hand and rubbed her beautiful fingertips. “She’s on He Wangs side.”

At this moment, Li Xiwu had yet to notice anything amiss. She asked casually,

“So He Wang is on the same side as his second uncle?”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “His second uncle can’t wait to kill him.”

Li Xiwu glanced sideways. “Then how did He Wang convince this second aunt to stand on his side?”

Pei Jingzhou smiled but did not say anything. This expression was unreadable to Li Xiwu. Li Xiwu only knew a rough understanding of the He family’s relationship and had never clarified it. She had also seen very little of the He family.

Not to mention that Xiang Wanning was not Second Master He’s first wife, so it was even more impossible for her to meet her.

She only knew that the He family had changed. The internal battle was in full swing.

At this moment, He Wang was too busy to take care of himself, but Xiang

Wanning had come to look for Pei Jingzhou. If Pei Jingzhou had not said that

Xiang Wanning was on He Wangs side, Li Xiwu would probably think that Xiang Wanning had come to look for Pei Jingzhou to rope him into Second Master He’s side.

Seeing that Li Xiwu was in a daze, Pei Jingzhou asked with a smile, “Have you sorted it out?”

When Li Xiwu heard this, she raised her eyebrows. “Fourth Brother, do you think I’m figuring out the current situation of the He family?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “No?”

Li Xiwu shook her head. “No.”

Pei Jingzhou reached out and hooked his arm around her waist. “Why didn’t you ask why she came to see me?”

Li Xiwu took the opportunity to move closer to Pei Jingzhou. can tell that

Fourth Brother wants to explain.”

Pei Jingzhou said in a low voice, “But you never ask.”

Li Xiwu smiled. “Because I believe you. I said it just now.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Even if you believe me unconditionally, I still have to explain. She came to me to make a deal with me.”

At this point, Li Xiwu would be lying if she said that she was not curious. She asked, “What kind of deal?”

“She will provide me with favorable information in the middle and ask me to do my best to help He Wang obtain the inheritance rights of the He family. The reward is the Blue Eyes Mountain in the suburbs of the capital.”

No matter how calm Li Xiwu was, she could not remain calm when she heard that the other party was going to offer him the Blue Eyes Mountain.

As far as she knew, Blue Eyes Mountain was famous in the suburbs of the capital. It was a mountain full of sycamores. The entire mountain was famous for the lake shaped like an eye at the top.

However, that mountain belonged to the He family. A hundred years ago, the He family’s ancestor had introduced 20,000 sycamore trees. The amber eyes at the top of the mountain were artificially excavated. The He family had established itself in the capital for so many years because of that Blue Eyes


Li Xiwu asked, “Doesn’t she know that you were going to help He Wang?”

Pei Jingzhou shook his head. “She thought I was the one watching from the sidelines, so she came to me to make a deal.’

The Pei family’s power was something many aristocratic families wanted to rely on. However, because the Pei family was not associated with any aristocratic family, they could not be relied on even if they wanted to.

The corners of Li Xiwu’s lips curled up. “Then what was she thinking? She begged you to help fight for the family assets and gave an astonishing reward, but if she handed the Blue Eyes Mountain to you, what’s the point of He Wang fighting for the family assets?”

Pei Jingzhou said calmly, “Since she can transfer the takeover of the Blue Eyes Mountain to me, it means that she doesn’t want glory and wealth. She wants He Wang to be safe.”

Compared to those worldly possessions, what Xiang Wanning wanted was for He MJang to be safe.

Moreover, before He Wang participated in the competition for the family assets, Xiang Wanning did not agree with He Wangs involvement. They had talked about it, and He Wang had agreed, but who knew that He Wang would suddenly change his mind?

Helpless, she came to Pei Jingzhou and offered him such a huge reward.

Li Xiwu understood what she meant, but…

She suddenly looked at Pei Jingzhou with a surprised expression. “Xiang

Wanning is He Wangs aunt. What does she mean by helping He Wang?” Pei Jingzhou looked at her sideways and smiled faintly. “Guess.”

Li Xiwu looked at Pei Jingzhou’s expression and looked at him briefly. Although Pei Jingzhou did not say anything, it seemed to Li Xiwu that he had said everything.

Soon, Li Xiwu’s expression became subtle. “Could it be…”

Pei Jingzhou said, “It’s what you think.”

Li Xiwu was surprised. “How dare he?”

Pei Jingzhou’s voice was mixed with a smile. “He cared, so why wouldn’t he dare?”

Li Xiwu choked. For a moment, she didn’t know if she should express surprise or shock. She retracted her hand from Pei Jingzhou’s. “This relationship seems to be a little messy.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “More than a little.”

The complaints from Pei Jingzhou were on point. It was indeed more than a little messy. However, on second thought, it was not considered chaotic for a family like the He family. As for He Wang, she didn’t know what he was thinking back then. He actually touched someone he shouldn’t have and even coveted her.

Li Xiwu smiled and shook her head.

Pei Jingzhou said, “I’ve known He Wang for more than twenty years. 1 don’t know everything, but I roughly know his personality. When I found out about this, I was also surprised.”

Li Xiwu coughed lightly. “That Mrs. He is… after all, his aunt…”

Pei Jingzhou said, “He knows what he’s doing.”

Indeed, He Wang knew better than anyone, but he just couldn’t figure it out.

He had originally been playing around, but in the end, he had lost his heart. With this, Li Xiwu immediately understood why He Wang suddenly wanted to fight for the family assets.

Pei Jingzhou leaned over. “What are you thinking?”

Li Xiwu thought of a poem.

—Beauty is not a calamity. It’s a pity that I’m a lowly concubine. All my worries and troubles are caused by the mortal world.

“It’s hard to say anything else. With He Wang’s guts, he will definitely win this family’s assets,” Li Xiwu said with a smile.

Pei Jingzhou said, “l hope it’s as he wishes.”

On the other side.

At the Lu residence. After Boyuan sent Li Xiwu off, she went to the terrace. Seeing her come out, Lu Jia asked, “Is she gone?”

Boyuan nodded. “Yes, she just left.”

Lu Jia was about to continue asking when Boyuan gestured for him to wait.

She leaned over and coaxed Little Jingzhe. “Little Jingzhe, can you play with Yaoyao?”

Little Jingzhe puffed up her cheeks and said in a muffled voice, “But Yaoyao ignored me.”

Boyuan said, “It’s not that he doesn’t want to talk to you. He’s just very upset.

Go comfort him.”

“Is that so?” Little Jingzhe asked.

Boyuan nodded. “Yes, go quickly. Yaoyao needs you very much now.”
