There was no need to say anything else. Li Xiwu pushed open the car door and got out. Just as she was about to close the car door, Yu Hewei stopped her. “Li You.”

Li Xiwu paused in the act of closing the car door.

Yu Hewei said, “Don’t you have anything else to say to me other than what you just said?”

Li Xiwu glanced at Yu Hewei. “What do you want me to say?

Yu Hewei said calmly, “Anything is fine. As long as you say it, I will cherish it.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. After staring at Yu Hewei for a moment, she said, “If…

happiness is too difficult, then I wish you peace.”

Yu Hewei said, “Thank you.”

Li Xiwu smiled faintly and did not say anything else. She closed the car door and turned to enter.

Yu Hewei stared at Li Xiwu’s back for a long time. It was only when she could not see her back that she slowly retracted her gaze. A smile appeared on her lips and she murmured, “It’s indeed the best blessing.”

Boyuan opened the door and saw that Li Xiwu had returned. She quickly pulled Li Xiwu in. “You’re finally back. I was so worried.”

“I’m sorry for making you worry.” Li Xiwu felt a little guilty.

“It’s fine. It’s good that you’re back.” Boyuan smiled.

Li Xiwu nodded and asked, “Youyou didn’t make a fuss, did she?”

“Youyou has a super good personality and doesn’t know how to make a fuss.” Boyuan’s tone was light. “I’m familiar with the teacher. The teacher agreed to let me pick Youyou up. Although Youyou looked a little lonely when she saw that I was the one who picked her up, after I told her the reason why you couldn’t pick her up, her expression immediately changed. She was very easy to coax.”

Hearing Boyuan’s words, Li Xiwu felt a little more at ease.

They had only been together for a short time and she had yet to completely understand her daughter’s personality. She could not help but be a little worried that Youyou would make a fuss when she go back on her word.

Boyuan said that Youyou and Little Jingzhe were in the children’s room. Li Xiwu glanced in that direction. “Wait for her and Little Jingzhe to play for a while more. I’ll go see if Yaoyao is awake.”

Boyuan said, “Yaoyao is already awake. Mr. Pei is inside with him. Go take a look. I’ll wait for you in the kitchen.”

Li Xiwu nodded. “Mm.”

When she reached the guest bedroom door, Li Xiwu gently pushed the door open and entered. She thought that she would see a very warm scene when she came in, but what she saw was a confrontation between an adult and a child.

Yaoyao’s face was tense, as if he was holding on to something. Pei Jingzhou’s expression was calm as he watched how long his son could last.

Li Xiwu walked over and asked, “What are you two doing?

The father and son turned around at the same time. The next second, Yaoyao ran towards Li Xiwu without hesitation. However, before he could take two steps, Pei Jingzhou grabbed his collar. “Why are you running? Do you want to complain?

When Li Xiwu heard the word “complain”, she asked Pei Jingzhou, “Did you deal with him?”

“Not yet, but if he continues to be so stubborn, he probably won’t be able to escape this beating.” Although he said that, Pei Jingzhou’s arm that was holding Yaoyao’s collar was not stable. He was afraid of strangling Yaoyao’s neck. As Yaoyao leaned forward, his arm moved forward.

Li Xiwu met Yaoyao’s aggrieved gaze and her heart softened. She quickly called out to Pei Jingzhou, “Let go first.”

Pei Jingzhou let go and ran behind Li Xiwu with Yaoyao.

Li Xiwu asked gently, “What do you want Yaoyao to do? Is he unwilling?”

Pei Jingzhou slowly stood up. “Take a shower.”

Li Xiwu was surprised. “Yaoyao isn’t willing to shower?

Pei Jingzhou said, “This kid doesn’t want me to bathe him.”

“I see.” Li Xiwu couldn’t help but laugh. “Yaoyao is shy to begin with. Of course he won’t be willing if you forcefully bathe him.”

Pei Jingzhou looked up at Li Xiwu. This glance clearly did not convey anything, but the smile on Li Xiwu’s lips immediately disappeared. She coughed lightly and her expression became unnatural.

Pei Jingzhou asked, “Aren’t you going to tell me?

Li Xiwu understood that it was impossible to pretend to be confused at this time. Pei Jingzhou clearly knew that she had gone to see Yu Hewei. She did not tell Pei Jingzhou in advance. It must have been Boyuan who told him that Pei Jingzhou knew about this.

Li Xiwu chose to be honest. “Yu Hewei and I were once good friends. I’m sorry for forgetting her. We sat down quietly and spoke frankly to each other. After that, she sent me back.”

She couldn’t say anything about Yu Hewei’s feelings for her for the time being. It was quite ridiculous. She couldn’t say it in front of Pei Jingzhou.

Pei Jingzhou did not ask what Li Xiwu and Yu Hewei had talked about. He only said, “Let me know in advance the next time you see her.”

“Okay.” Li Xiwu nodded with a smile. She turned to hold Yaoyao’s hand. “By the way, why are you suddenly bathing Yaoyao?

Pei Jingzhou’s thin lips curled up. “It’s rare for this kid to have a peaceful sleep today. It’s so peaceful that he’s dreaming…”

“Hmph!” Before Pei Jingzhou could finish speaking, Yaoyao pulled a long face and snorted angrily. This snort was a reminder to Pei Jingzhou—stop talking! Leave me some dignity!

Pei Jingzhou stopped mid-sentence. He noticed that Yaoyao’s expression was very lively. It was something that usually did not happen and could not appear vividly. Pei Jingzhou saw it all, so he said, “He was hot from sleeping, and sweated a little.”

“Is that so?” Li Xiwu pulled Yaoyao closer. “Let me see?’

Yaoyao avoided it and shook his head. “No, no.”

At this moment, Pei Jingzhou reached out to Yaoyao. “Come here, Yaoyao.” Yaoyao looked at Li Xiwu with pitiful eyes.

Li Xiwu wanted to help, but Boyuan was still waiting for her in the kitchen. The sooner she finished making the cake, the sooner she could go back. Auntie was coming tonight. In order not to waste time, Li Xiwu squatted down and coaxed Yaoyao. “I’m not watching anymore. Go take a shower first. Your body will only feel refreshed after taking a shower. Go take a shower obediently. There’s cake to eat after taking a shower. Do you want to eat it?”

Yaoyao nodded. “Yes.”

Li Xiwu smiled. “Alright, go take a shower with Daddy… with him now. I guarantee that when you come out of the shower, you’ll be able to eat delicious cake ”

Yaoyao nodded obediently. “Mm.”

Li Xiwu was a little surprised that Yaoyao was so easy to communicate with. Could it be the obvious effect after treatment? At this moment, Yaoyao was so easy to communicate and cooperate with. Li Xiwu couldn’t help but want to kiss him. However, before kissing him, she still asked politely, “Can I kiss you

Yaovao hesitated. then shook his head.

Li Xiwu was not surprised to be rejected. She reached out and gently stroked Yaoyao’s hair. Afraid that Boyuan would wait for her for too long, she stood up. “I’ll go out first. Remember to come out of the shower and eat cake.”

Yaoyao’s lips curved a little. He was smiling, but his smile was very restrained and didn’t look too obvious.

After Li Xiwu left, Yaoyao turned around and looked up at Pei Jingzhou. The smile on his lips disappeared completely when he looked at Pei Jingzhou for a few seconds. In the end, he walked up to Pei Jingzhou as if he had accepted his fate. He lowered his head and looked at the ground. “Thank… thank you.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “If you want to thank me, you have to look at me.”

Yaoyao looked up at Pei Jingzhou again. “Thank you.” Although he said thank you, it was obvious from his tense little face that he was still unconvinced.

Pei Jingzhou squatted down on one leg and looked at Yaoyao’s unconvinced expression. He suppressed a smile and said, “You were too soft. I didn’t hear you clearly.”

Yaoyao’s muffled voice said, “I’m going to tell her you have bad ears..”
