Chapter 458: Sweet Happiness (1)

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

Li You had just arrived in Country T and was almost unaccustomed to all kinds of things. These unaccustomed included the climate here, the local customs here, and the environment here. After that, she had skin allergies and insomnia. At night, her skin was so itchy that she couldn’t sleep. The anti-allergy medicine she took didn’t seem to have any effect. With all kinds of discomfort, she missed the capital very much.

But this bit of hardship was nothing.

When her mother first came here, she was also not used to all kinds of things. Their situation was similar. The only difference was that her mother had her father by her side at all times.

She found her cell phone and called Pei Jingzhou, who was far away in the capital. She talked non-stop, but she did not mention a word about the discomfort here. Instead, she talked about the happy and interesting things she had encountered in Country T.

When Pei Jingzhou asked her, “Are you adapting there?”

Li You quickly took away her cell phone. Afraid that Pei Jingzhou would hear her gasp, she composed herself and pressed the phone back to her ear. She replied in an extremely light-hearted tone, “You don’t know me yet. I can adapt anywhere. Moreover, Country T only has the hot rainy season and the cold season. In other words, there’s no winter and it’s not as cold as the capital. I like warm places the most.”

She thought she had hidden her emotions very well. Little did she know that Pei Jingzhou had guessed everything in the few seconds when she took away the cell phone. “Li You.” He called her name softly.

Li You replied, “Yeah?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I’ll enter the company’s management in half a month.”

Li Xiwu blinked and recalled what Pei Jingzhou had said previously. He would enter the company in his second year and take over some of his father’s authority. However, it was postponed because of something.

Pei Jingzhou’s major in university was finance. He had decided to minor in computer science in his second year, so he had delayed entering the company. Mr. Pei wanted Pei Jingzhou to enter an investment bank after minoring in computer science.

In his second year of university, Pei Jingzhou studied while making very outstanding results in the investment bank. This year should be his busiest year in university. Be it semester or holidays, Pei Jingzhou’s figure was almost always in and out of the company, school, and computer laboratory.

Now that Pei Jingzhou’s results had been recognized by the upper echelons of the Pei Corporation, after the recent board meeting, Mr. Pei announced that Pei Jingzhou would directly enter the company’s management.

This also meant that Pei Jingzhou was about to take over the entire Pei Corporation.

Pei Jingzhou then told her, “There are a lot of things to do in school and the company’s management. I should be busy for a while. 1 don’t have much free time.”

Li You nodded. “I know.”

Pei Jingzhou asked her, “What do you know?”

Li You’s tone was as light as before. “You’re telling me this because you’re afraid that you’ll be too busy. If 1 call you but can’t find you, I’ll be angry. So you let me know first. This way, when I want to look for you but can’t find you, I’ll know that you’re busy and won’t be angry.”

Pei Jingzhou’s faint laughter came from the phone. “Yes, how smart.”

Hearing his laughter, Li You’s mood improved. “Of course. Don’t you know whose girlfriend I am?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “But that’s not what I meant.”

The smile on Li You’s lips froze. “Huh? Then what do you mean?”

Pei Jingzhou told her, “l said that I’ll be busy for a while, but I’m not so busy that I won’t even have time to pick up my girlfriends call. I’m just a little busier than usual.’

“Oh, I see.’


“What else?” she asked urgently.

Pei Jingzhou said, “l have a flight to Country T the day after tomorrow.”

Li You’s breathing stopped. “The day after tomorrow?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Mhm.”

Li You was not convinced and asked again, “The day after tomorrow?”

Pei Jingzhou replied patiently, “Yes, the late-night flight the day after tomorrow.”

“Pei Jingzhou…” Her voice was muffled and nasal. Pei Jingzhou smiled and asked her, “Why? Am I not welcome?”

Li You said, “I’ve only been in Country T for a week.”

Pei Jingzhou asked, “So?”

Li You said, “We’ve only been apart for a week and you’re already here. Actually, we can save up. How many times can you come a year? You’re here so quickly. I don’t know when the next time will be.”

“So that’s what you’re worried about?” He sounded amused.

“You’ll use the time you had before to fly to Country T to see me. How extravagant.” Although she said this, she was actually overjoyed.

Pei Jingzhou said, “Then following on, I’ll come to see you every few days. Other than being extravagant, will you be annoyed?”

Li You thought he was joking. Country T and the capital were two countries apart, not two cities. However, since Pei Jingzhou had made this joke, how could she disappoint him? “Of course not. Not only will I not be annoyed, but my happiness will soar to an unimaginable level.”

These words were sweet to Pei Jingzhou’s heart. He said, “Wait for me. I’ll see you the day after tomorrow.”

She replied, “Okay, got it, boyfriend.”

Li You’s voice was not delicate, but it sounded very soft, especially in front of Pei Jingzhou.

In her first year in Country T, Li You returned five times.

Pei Jingzhou had come to Country T a total of 128 times in the past year.

The next year, Li You returned to the country nine times, while Pei Jingzhou came to Country T 202 times. Most of the time, he returned after staying for a day. If it was counted separately, there were more than 400 flights.

It seemed that as long as he had time, he would come to Country T to see her and accompany her.

For the past few years, Pei Jingzhou had come to Country T to spend Li You’s birthday with her. Therefore, before Pei Jingzhou’s 22nd birthday, Li You secretly returned to the country a day early.

She took a taxi with her suitcase and was on her way to Bangkok airport when she ran into a minor car accident.

The forward stop of the car’s inertia made her bang her knee.

The car in front collided even more seriously. The ambulance was here, and Li You’s knees only bumped slightly, but the chauffeur still suggested that she change her flight and go to the hospital for a checkup first.

Li You was unwilling. She took another taxi to the airport. Before she boarded the plane, she received a call from her father. When he found out about her accident, he asked her to stay.

Li You did not know how her father found out so quickly, but in order to give Pei Jingzhou a surprise, she still boarded the plane. She thought that Pei Jingzhou did not know that she was back.

But when she got off the plane, she saw Pei Jingzhou. At that time, Li You was stunned on the spot and thought that she was hallucinating.

How did Pei Jingzhou know that she had secretly returned? Had her father told him?

Li You quickly pushed her suitcase over. The closer she got, the clearer Pei Jingzhou’s face became in her vision.. When she got closer, she looked up and asked in disbelief, “Why are you here?”
