Chapter 412: She Troubled Herself

Translator: Henyee Translations      Editor: Henyee Translations

Pei Qingji agreed. “Good idea. In the future, if anyone wants to marry my daughter, they have to marry into my Pei family and be under my control.

Otherwise, they have to get lost as far as possible.”

Han Qianye was furious. “My Jiaojiao’s grievance this time is definitely not for nothing. I’ll remember this debt from the Wei family.”

Although Han Qianye usually scolded Pei Jiao for being stupid, this was actually all because she spoiled her. She had never asked her daughter to be like the daughters of other aristocratic families. She only wanted her daughter to live freely and happily.

That was why Pei Jiao had developed her current personality.

Pei Jingzhou and Li Xiwu had come back for nothing today. She had thought that the patriarch of the Wei family would visit today. Who knew Wei Yu came in the name of the patriarch of the Wei family? His goal was to cancel the betrothal.

He left as he wished.

Pei Jiao was still in the dark and did not know that she had been unilaterally dismissed by Wei Yu.

Han Qianye left Li Xiwu and Pei Jingzhou for lunch before leaving. The two of them agreed. After that, Li Xiwu contacted Dr. Xu and went to Boyuan’s house in the afternoon to treat Yaoyao.

During the meal, Pei Jiao ate quietly. No matter what Han Qianye and Li Xiwu talked about, she did not participate in any topics.

Han Qianye knew that Li Xiwu was going to Boyuan’s house to accompany Yaoyao for mental treatment in the afternoon. She also wanted to see Yaoyao and suggested that she go with her.

Li Xiwu nodded. “Sure. Yaoyao must be very happy to see you.”

Han Qianye was worried. “I’m just afraid that Little Yaoyao won’t even remember me.”

“No.” Li Xiwu was very sure. “Yaoyao has a good memory. He must have remembered you.”

These words comforted Han Qianye.

After lunch, Han Qianye went up to change her clothes. Pei Qingji went to the library, while Li Xiwu and Pei Jingzhou sat in the living room and waited.

Taking advantage of the fact that there was no one else around, Li Xiwu said,

“When we were eating just now, I realized that Pei Jiao was in a bad mood. Did she guess?

“So what if she guessed?” Pei Jingzhou said, “With Pei Jiao’s personality, she won’t like Wei Yu.”

Li Xiwu, who had never come into contact with Wei Yu and did not even know anything about him, asked, “Why are you so sure?

Pei Jingzhou reached out and wrapped his arm around Li Xiwu’s waist. “This person is two-faced and extremely shrewd.”

Li Xiwu immediately understood. “No wonder you didn’t say a word back then.”

At first, when Mr. and Mrs. Pei lied to Pei Jiao that Wei Yu was very ugly, Pei Jingzhou did not say a word. He was like a bystander. He did not respond because he wanted to avoid saying anything unnecessary. Pei Jiao would not be agitated, but she would still lose face.

“Sister-in-law. Pei Jiao walked over from behind, not as sloppy as usual. After walking over, she called Li Xiwu sister-in-law obediently.

Li Xiwu smiled back. “When we were eating just now, you looked listless. You probably didn’t rest well. Walk around a little and catch up on your sleep later.”

Pei Jiao replied, “Okay, I’ll walk around first to digest my food.”

With that, Pei Jiao looked at Pei Jingzhou. She was not as well-behaved as when she called Li Xiwu sister-in-law. When she called Pei Jingzhou the God of Fortune, her tone returned to its usual sloppy tone. “God of Fortune, it’s really not easy to meet you. Please come back to the old residence more often.” Pei Jingzhou looked up at Pei Jiao. “How much do you want?”

Pei Jiao grinned and rubbed her hands. “As expected of the God of Fortune. Just give me some.”

In any case, her brother was generous. If he gave her some, it would be enough for her to spend for a long time. Of course, this was only because her budget would take a long time, because the money she earned now was not wasted. It was all saved up for an early retirement.

This was not the first time Pei Jingzhou had seen Pei Jiao like this. He took out his phone and handed it to Li Xiwu. “Your sister-in-law has the authority over the finances. Tell her how much you want.”

Pei Jiao turned around and looked at Li Xiwu with shining eyes.

Li Xiwu, who was hesitating about whether to take the cell phone, had no choice but to take it under Pei Jiao’s shining gaze. She realized that Pei

Jingzhou’s phone had already added her face to unlock it. The screen lit up, and after identifying it accurately, she unlocked it. She looked up at Pei Jiao. “How much do you want?”

Pei Jiao was too embarrassed to say how much she wanted in front of Li Xiwu. She smiled and said, “Sister-in-law, just give it as you see fit.”

Li Xi nodded. She opened the business application and found the transfer record Pei Jingzhou had given Pei Jiao. The limit was 500,000 yuan, so she entered 500,000 yuan and transferred it to Pei Jiao.

After that, she transferred another 500,000 yuan. Pei Jiao’s phone beeped. She picked it up and looked at it. “Damn! Sister-in-law, you’re still the generous one?’ A million dollars with a wave of her hand. She hit the jackpot.

Pei Jingzhou looked at Pei Jiao’s money-grubber expression. “Are you implying that I’m not generous enough to you usually?”

“Not at all. Definitely not.” Pei Jiao shook her head. “The God of Fortune and the Goddess of Fortune are very generous.”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “You can talk.”

Pei Jiao’s smile was especially bright. She raised her cell phone and waved. “I won’t disturb you. I’ll leave first.”

After Pei Jiao disappeared from Li Xiwu’s sight, she retracted her gaze and handed the phone back to Pei Jingzhou. Pei Jingzhou did not take it. “Just leave it there for me.”

“No, take it yourself. I still have to look for you when a call comes,” Li Xiwu said as she stuffed the phone into Pei Jingzhou’s hand.

He held the edge of his cell phone and laughed softly. “If a call comes in, can’t Mrs. Pei answer it for me?

Li Xiwu said, “Mrs. Pei is very busy.”

Pei Jingzhou smiled dotingly. “What are you busy with, Mrs. Pei?”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows. “I’m busy… ignoring Mr. Pei.”

Pei Jingzhou: ‘

Pei Jiao took her cell phone and went back upstairs. She locked the door and transferred the million yuan she had just received to another account. Only then did she feel at ease.

The computer screen kept flashing. It was a link from Beike. Pei Jiao dealt with it briefly and turned off the computer. Then she called Beike. “I have something on recently. Don’t look for me.”

Beike immediately became nosy. “Blind date? Preparing to have a refreshing love for a period of time?

Pei Jiao’s lips twitched. “Sorry, I’m not dating. I’ll go beat someone up and hide for a while after I’m done.”

Beike’s gossipy tone turned into a curious one. “Beat up who? Do you need me to shake someone for you?

Pei Jiao coughed lightly. “In a lawful society, it’s wrong to fight in groups. I can handle my own private matters.”

Beike became more and more curious. “What is it?”

Pei Jiao did not want to say it, but at the thought of that, the gloominess in her heart deepened. In the end, she gritted her teeth and said, “I’m despised. He actually came to my house specially to annul this betrothal.”

Beike: “Annulled?”

Pei Jiao took a deep breath. “Yeah.”

Beike: “In front of you?

Pei Jiao couldn’t suppress her anger anymore. She said angrily, “No, my parents refused to tell me. They were afraid that I would be embarrassed. I called him and asked him myself. Do you know that he broke the fantasy I made up? It’s fine if he changed his gentleness that day and spoke coldly to me, but he even told me not to pester him. How am I pestering him? I just called to ask what was going on. F*ck, I’m so angry. I can’t take this lying down, so I plan to teach him a lesson and let him know that I, Pei Jiao, am not someone to be trifled with.”

Beike understood. “So you were abandoned before you even started?”

Pei Jiao was speechless. This stab accurately pierced Pei Jiao’s heart, causing her heart to ache.

Beike quickly corrected himself. “This is too much. This is really too much.” Pei Jiao finally felt a little better.

Beike continued asking, “Then what are you planning to do to him? You’re not planning to rape him, are you?

Pei Jiao was stunned, then she grinned. “Not a bad idea.”

“Are you crazy? You’re going to sacrifice yourself just to teach him a lesson? That’s too much of a sacrifice.” Beike felt very unfair for Pei Jiao and advised her not to do it.

Pei Jiao laughed evilly. “You’re the one who’s crazy. How can I sacrifice myself?

Since he’s so arrogant, let others touch him. Let’s see how arrogant he can be!”

When Beike heard this, he had goosebumps all over his body. He sincerely reminded her, “Just don’t go overboard. Be careful not to get yourself killed..”
