43 Photo of The First Love

She said at the show that she wanted to have supper when she got home? Li Xiwu was pretty sure she hadn’t said that. But…

The director had said that. At that time, she had picked it up casually. The director had only said that because she had been distracted.

Li Xiwu was a little surprised, but she also confessed, “I followed the director’s words at that time. I had dinner before the recording. I’m not hungry now.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I didn’t eat.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

She thought that he was really worried that she was hungry, so he remembered her casual response on the stage. Indeed, she was thinking too much.

Before Pei Jingzhou entered the kitchen again, he reminded her, “Take off your makeup first.”

Li Xiwu remembered that she had specially put on a little smoky makeup before going on stage tonight. She was quite satisfied with the makeup. After all, such makeup was not usually needed. It was rare to put on makeup. Instead of going, Li Xiwu asked, “Doesn’t this makeup look good?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “It looks good.”

Li Xiwu said, “Then why remove it?”

Pei Jingzhou clicked his tongue. “It’s an eyesore.”

“So many eyes have seen it. It doesn’t matter if it’s for a while more. Can’t I remove it before I sleep?” she said.

Pei Jingzhou said, “Up to you.” With that, he turned and went into the kitchen.

Li Xiwu was in a good mood. She realized that she liked to go against Pei Jing more and more. If this continued, it would probably not be long before the divorce was successful. She could also get Han Qianye’s 400 million. It was beautiful to think about.

She went to sit on the sofa and turned on the television. She found a recent popular drama and opened the box of biscuits Pei Jingzhou had given her. She was relaxed and content.

Ten minutes later, Pei Jingzhou’s voice came from the kitchen. “Li Xiwu, come in.”

Li Xiwu put down the small biscuit box and stepped into the kitchen. “Yes?” There were two bowls of hot dried noodles on the kitchen counter. Pei Jingzhou asked her to bring one out. Li Xiwu touched the bowl and retracted her hand. “It’s too hot.”

Pei Jingzhou looked at her. “The bowl is insulated. That bowl is yours too.”

Li Xiwu smiled. “I didn’t say I wanted to eat.”

Pei Jingzhou laughed angrily. “Li Xiwu, you can be more spoiled.”

“Sure.” Li Xiwu pointed at the two bowls of hot dried noodles and said in an arrogant tone, “You, bring these two bowls of noodles out.”

Pei Jingzhou: “…”

Li Xiwu wanted to continue to go against Pei Jingzhou’s words and annoy him. She wanted to annoy him. As she thought this, her waist was suddenly grabbed.

Before she could react, Pei Jingzhou took off her clothes. Li Xiwu pressed his hand down. “This is the kitchen.”

Pei Jingzhou’s expression was dark. “Since you don’t want to eat noodles, I’ll eat you. Right here. It’s not the first time anyway.”

Li Xiwu’s neck heated up as fragmented images flashed through her mind. After being married to Pei Jingzhou for three years, she knew a lot about him. He did not mess around easily. However, once he messed around, this 400 square meter flat would be considered small.

She was afraid that he would really mess around.

Li Xiwu softened. “I’ll eat.”

Pei Jingzhou snorted. “As expected, you haven’t eaten dinner. You don’t even have the strength to speak.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

There was nothing wrong with giving in. At least, Pei Jingzhou did not mess around again.

After eating the noodles, Li Xiwu stopped watching television. She picked up her phone and opened WeChat. She continued to pester the D perfume brand and strived to successfully get this endorsement for Ji Weiling before President Qi gave her an ultimatum.

It was impossible for her to give up Ji Weiling. Ji Weiling was her child. Her career was rising now, and it was the time when resources were advancing from all sides, she had to stabilize Ji Weiling’s follow-up resources. As long as Ji Weiling became a B-list female artist before next spring, her position in the company would stabilize.

Pei Jingzhou was also busy. He took two calls in a row. By then, the clock on the wall was pointing at eleven.

After Pei Jingzhou finished his work, he saw that Li Xiwu had yet to return to her room. She was sitting there and sending a voice message. She was patient and full of flattery. He could tell that the other party was from a big brand. Otherwise, her attitude would not be so good.

He walked over and called to her in a low voice, “Li Xiwu, go to sleep.”

Li Xiwu didn’t turn around. “You sleep first.”

Pei Jingzhou leaned over and took her phone away. “Look at the time yourself.”

Li Xiwu noticed the time on the wall clock. “It’s only eleven.”

Pei Jingzhou: “Only?”

Li Xiwu was not someone who would lose her temper easily. Even if Pei Jingzhou snatched her phone, she would not be angry easily. She stood up and looked at him. In a negotiating tone, she said, “Is an hour okay? I still have to wake up early to meet the brand tomorrow.”

Actually, they were done chatting. She had just sent the brand a “see you tomorrow” emoji when Pei Jingzhou took her phone away.

Pei Jingzhou turned around and entered the bedroom. “It depends on your performance.”

Their bedroom was very big, about 70 square meters. Li Xiwu’s cloakroom took up a lot of space. There was also a large balcony outside. The display and furnishings were all done according to Li Xiwu’s preference. Pei Jingzhou never asked about this. Even if she changed into pink sheets, he would still sleep in it.

To accommodate her like this, it had to be because of her face. He would not be angry when he looked at her face. Actually, sometimes, Li Xiwu really wanted to see his first love’s photo. She wanted to see how similar the two of them looked to make Pei Jingzhou love her so much…

The next day.

The sunlight penetrated the fish tank by the window like a faint golden aurora falling on the marble tiles beside it. Li Xiwu got out of bed and looked at the well-dressed man who was about to leave. “Pei Jingzhou, are you still human?”

They had agreed to see how she performed. She had performed so well last night, but he had still eaten her up. They say men can’t be trusted in bed. They couldn’t be trusted under the bed either.

Pei Jingzhou’s expression showed that he was in a good mood. He put on his expensive wristwatch and reminded her calmly, “I am, and I’m your man.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

She had just woken up when Pei Jingzhou was already preparing to leave. She dragged her sore body to the bathroom. When she came out, she thought that Pei Jingzhou had already left, but he was still standing there. She ignored his presence and turned to the cloakroom to change.

After coming out, Pei Jingzhou was still standing there.

Pei Jingzhou asked her, “Are you done?”

Li Xiwu was puzzled. “Is Fourth Brother waiting for me?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “What else?”

Li Xiwu thought of her slow speed just now. “You didn’t rush me when I was so slow. Fourth Brother is quite a gentleman.”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “It’s not your fault for being slow. It’s my fault.”

Li Xiwu, who recalled last night: “…”

Finally, Li Xiwu followed Pei Jingzhou out. He took her to breakfast. This time they went to a different restaurant and ordered Cantonese morning tea, as usual. After that, Pei Jingzhou asked the driver to send her to the company. Before he left, he reminded her, “Go home tonight.”

His special reminder always made Li Xiwu feel like a streetwalker who did not like to go home, and Pei Jingzhou was her worried father.
