With that, Li You pulled Pei Jingzhou’s arm. “Let’s go and rest.”

Pei Jingzhou was about to follow when MO Zhu coughed lightly to remind him. “Ahem!” Li You stopped and turned to look at her mother. MO Zhu handed the plate of fruits to Li You. “l washed it for you. Eat it.”

“Okay.” Li You took the plate of fruits.

MO Zhu reminded her, “Come out early later. I have something to tell you.”

Li You obediently replied, “Okay, I understand.” Then, as quickly as possible, she brought Pei Jingzhou to the bedroom.

After bringing Pei Jingzhou to her room, the first thing she did was lock the door, afraid that her parents would suddenly barge in. Although she could not stay for long, she did not want to be disturbed when she was alone with Pei Jingzhou.

She set the fruit platter aside. She went over to close the curtains. When she turned around, she saw that Pei Jingzhou had already taken the fruits from the fruit platter and was peeling them. She walked over to him. “Do you feel better now? Do you want to go to bed early?”

“I’m not very tired.” Pei Jingzhou handed the peeled fruit to Li You. “Eat it.”

Li You took it and ate it. As she ate, she asked, “Did you know that Country T produces the most mountain bamboo?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “l remember that here, mountain bamboo is another name?”

“Yes!” Li You ate the mountain bamboo Pei Jingzhou had peeled for her in a few bites and replied, “It’s called mangosteen here. It’s as famous as durian and can be called a fruit queen.”

Pei Jingzhou asked, “Then do you prefer durians or mangosteens?”

Li You wanted to answer that she liked to eat mangosteen. She did not have much love for durians, but when she saw Pei Jingzhou’s gaze, the words on the tip of her tongue changed. She blinked and said, “Of course I like to eat you.”

Pei Jingzhou said sarcastically, “Unfortunately, you’re not in luck tonight.”

“l was just saying. Who wants to eat you? It’s not delicious at all.” She pursed her lips and turned around with another mangosteen. “Rest early. I’m going out. ”

Before she could take two steps, Pei Jingzhou reached out and grabbed her waist, pulling her back. She stepped back and leaned into Pei Jingzhou’s arms. Because he had drunk, he reeked of alcohol and his body was burning.

She twisted her body. Pei Jingzhou said, “Don’t move. Let me hug you for a while.’

Li You reminded him, “I’m sorry, sir. I’m not in luck tonight. Don’t seduce me.” Pei Jingzhou chuckled. “Guess if I’m sober or confused now?”

Sober or confused? She had thought that Pei Jingzhou was sober, but after his question, she was suddenly uncertain. She put the mangosteen aside and turned his wrist to face him. Their bodies were still pressed together. She looked up at him.

They looked at each other for a moment. No one said anything. Until Li You couldn’t help but ask, “Were you pretending to be drunk outside just now?” Pei Jingzhou smiled and asked her, “What do you think?”

At this moment, the smile on Pei Jingzhou’s face was completely different from when she asked him to smile.

He was deliberately pretending to be obedient just now.

He was clearly black-bellied now!

Just as she thought that she could take this rare opportunity to tease Pei Jingzhou and feel smug because of it, it turned out that Pei Jingzhou was teasing her without her knowing. With that thought in mind, Li You pushed him away, keeping her feet at arm’s length. Then she crossed her arms and turned sideways.

Pei Jingzhou leaned towards her. “Are you angry?”

Li You pouted. “No.”

Pei Jingzhou reached out and gently hugged her. Then, he rested his chin on her shoulder and said in a slightly hoarse voice, “I’m not completely drunk.” His breath landed on her neck. It was hot and itchy, and she shrank her neck to hide. Pei Jingzhou sensed that she was hiding and pressed his warm lips against her neck.

Li You liked this kind of intimacy, but they were at her house now. Her parents

would look over at any moment. She panicked and quickly pushed his head away. Because it was too heavy, she placed her elbow on his chest. “Pei Jingzhou, Pei Jingzhou…”

She was anxious and shouted twice.

Pei Jingzhou reached back and tightened his grip on her waist. “I’m here,”

Li You elbowed him in the chest. “Stop fooling around.”

Pei Jingzhou chuckled. “I’m not.”

“Get up.”

“Pei Jingzhou!” She was clearly anxious.

Pei Jingzhou almost leaned against her. Listening to her faster and faster heartbeat, the smile on his lips deepened. He slowly raised his head and kissed the side of her face. He whispered, “You haven’t called me brother.”

Li You said, “Call me sister again.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Sister.” He called out without hesitation.

Li You turned to face him, the smile on her lips almost reaching the back of her head. She bit her lip and called out in a ladylike manner,

Pei Jingzhou did not show any expression when he heard this. He even said calmly, “Actually, I don’t feel anything.”

Hearing this, Li You poked his chest angrily. “What else do you want to feel? If you really feel anything, you can forget about sleeping tonight.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “l have to sleep even if I can’t sleep. What if Father-in-law chases me out?”

Li You said, “If Dad chases you out, I’ll go out and pick you up again.”

Pei Jingzhou chuckled softly. Before letting go of her and letting her out, he whispered in her ear, “You haven’t kissed me yet.”

Li You’s cheeks heated. “Then close your eyes.”

Pei Jingzhou did as he was told and closed his eyes to wait. Li You slowly retreated, but Pei Jingzhou seemed to have sensed it. Before she could take half a step back, he pulled her back and kissed her.

Li You thought of her mother’s words and kissed Pei Jingzhou back. Only when he was satisfied did she free herself from his arms.

“You should go to bed early,” she said.

Pei Jingzhou looked at her with drunken eyes and replied, “Mm.”

After Li You came out, she carefully closed the door. The moment she came out, she saw her father and mother sitting on the sofa. Her heart was beating like a drum as she slowly walked over like a hero heading to the execution ground.

MO Zhu looked up and saw his daughter walking over. She pointed at the sofa on the other side. “Come out and sit.’

Li You sat down obediently. MO Zhu gave her husband a look. Of course, Li Huaisheng wanted to listen in, but he listened to his wife more. He stood up and said, “I’m going to sober up.” MO Zhu nodded. Li Huaisheng walked past Li You and leaned over to pat her shoulder. “Don’t be afraid. Your mother doesn’t eat people.”

Li You choked. “…Mm.”

After Li Huaisheng left, there were only Li You and MO Zhu left. MO Zhu’s casual gaze landed on her daughter. “Aren’t you going to explain?”

Li You knew that there was no point in saying anything else. She said directly, “We will get married.”

When MO Zhu heard this, she smiled gently. “Of course Mom knows.” Li You grinned and asked, “Will Mom object to getting married early?”

“l won’t object.” MO Zhu looked at Li You. “Because Mom believes in sincere love, Mom believes that you have met the most sincere love..”
