49 Pei Jingzhou said, “I miss you.”

The unanswered call was fixed at 56 seconds. The line would automatically hang up after fifty-six seconds.

Li Xiwu waited until the 50th second to pick up the phone. The person on the other end said nothing. Li Xiwu screwed on the lip enamel cover and pressed the phone to her ear. Her voice was calm. “Fourth Brother, good morning.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “If you have the ability, don’t answer it.”

Li Xiwu raised her lips. “I wouldn’t dare.”

Pei Jingzhou’s voice was so cold that it could almost penetrate her. “Li Xiwu, is there anything you don’t dare to do?”

Li Xiwu said, “I wouldn’t dare to do this, I wouldn’t dare to do that.”

Li Xiwu did not know that Pei Jingzhou had been angry all night. Even before answering Li Xiwu’s call, his anger had not subsided. He picked up Li Xiwu’s call angrily, yet he was once again angered by her.

It went on and on.

Pei Jingzhou’s voice was very deep. “Li Xiwu, sooner or later, you’ll anger me to death.”

On the other end of the line, Li Xiwu smiled harmlessly. “Thank you for thinking highly of me, Fourth Brother.”

Pei Jingzhou snorted.

Li Xiwu paused for a moment before saying, “If I really have the ability, can I remarry when Fourth Brother is gone? Then… other than remarrying, can I become Fourth Brother’s first heir?”

The line went quiet. Li Xiwu knew she had stepped on a mine. However, she was not afraid at all. She became serious again. “Fourth Brother, don’t be angry. I’m thinking about necessary problems. You and I don’t have children. We have to consider the matter of the first heir.”

She did make it sound serious.

Pei Jingzhou only gave her three words. “You heartless thing.” It was fine if she wanted him to die, but she couldn’t wait to remarry. In the end, she didn’t forget to inherit his assets?

Li Xiwu couldn’t stop laughing, but she tried not to laugh out loud. Those serious words just now really didn’t sound very kind. If she laughed again, Pei Jingzhou would be so angry that he would rush towards Fu Town and capture her.

It was enough to lick the blood off the tip of a knife once. If she licked too much, she would accidentally lick her own blood. Li Xiwu asked about serious matters. “Fourth Brother called me several times last night. Is something the matter?”

Pei Jingzhou asked, “Why are you asking me now?”

Li Xiwu explained anyway. “I accidentally muted my phone yesterday afternoon and rested at Qiao Qiao’s last night. I left in a hurry this morning and didn’t have time to check my phone for missed calls. I’m sorry.”

Sometimes contradiction and obedience did not conflict. When combined, this was called knowing when to advance and retreat.

Pei Jingzhou: “You didn’t look at your phone all night?”

Li Xiwu said truthfully, “I didn’t.”

Pei Jingzhou laughed angrily. “Li Xiwu, good job.”

Apart from Li Xiwu’s contradictions at the beginning, they did not talk much after that. Pei Jingzhou’s anger was not directed at Li Xiwu because he could not vent it. His voice sounded a few degrees colder, but it was like a paper tiger.

Li Xiwu didn’t ask anything about booking the Waldorf Restaurant. What was the point of her asking about his date with his lover?

Before hanging up, Pei Jingzhou asked her, “How many days of rest are you going to broadcast this time?”

The director had said early on that they would rest every three days. Li Xiwu said, “Three days.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Another three days.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips and smiled. “We’ve only been apart for a day. Fourth Brother, do you miss me already?”

The remark was a joke. It was just a casual saying.

Unexpectedly, Pei Jingzhou replied, “Yes, I do.”

The words were simple. Li Xiwu felt strange. She couldn’t describe it. When she heard a knock on the door, she said to the man on the other end, “The director is urging me.” Then she hung up in a hurry.

Li Xiwu turned the phone to silent before getting up to open the door. Xie Wen was standing outside the door. She was alone. Shenshen should be with Zheng Yuehua.

Xie Wen said, “Miss Li, the director just told me about the scene of us meeting later.”

Li Xiwu knew about this and came out to close the door. “The director’s arrangements are a little exaggerated. I don’t think there’s a need. A tacit look is enough.”

Xie Wen was an actress, so how could she not know what kind of gaze could control the hearts of the audience? She said, “That’s what I thought.”

The door next door did not open. Li Xiwu told Xie Wen to wait, then raised her hand and knocked on Han Qianye’s door. A few seconds later, Han Qianye came over and opened the door. “Did the director rush you?”

Li Xiwu nodded. “Everyone’s downstairs.”

Han Qianye thought about how the four groups of mother-in-law and daughter-in-law were gathered together, and her microsocial phobia acted up. After coming out, she wanted to walk beside Li Xiwu, but Xie Wen occupied the place beside Li Xiwu, so she had no place.

Han Qianye was dissatisfied. As she walked, she shouted, “Aiya!” Li Xiwu and Xie Wen turned around. Han Qianye stood there and pointed at her eyes. “My eyelashes on my left eye seem to have taken off. Li Xiwu, come over and help me take a look.”

Li Xiwu turned back. Xie Wen could only go downstairs first.

Li Xiwu took a closer look at Han Qianye. Her left eye was still covered in makeup. Not only that, but Li Xiwu’s gaze was also attracted by Han Qianye’s surprisingly good skin for a few seconds. She could not help but sigh. It was indeed the charm of hot-madge.

Why did she have to be rich? When she reached Han Qianye’s age, she might not even have skin like Han Qianye’s. Only money could stay young forever.

Seeing that Li Xiwu was staring at her face intently, Han Qianye asked, “Did my makeup fall off?”

Li Xiwu looked away. “No. The makeup is exquisite and clean. Little dust might have flown into your eyes just now. Your eyelashes are still on.”

Han Qianye said, “That’s good.”


Melodious piano music came. It was a familiar scene.

Li Xiwu recalled the first day of the live broadcast. Under the encouragement of her mother-in-law, Min Hanrong, Tao Jing displayed her piano skills and received unanimous praise from online netizens.

At that time, that clip was still half edited and posted on Mother-in-Law Joy’s official Weibo. Many netizens who had missed the live broadcast were looking forward to the premiere of Wind Platform because of this clip.

Today, under the director’s deliberate arrangement, Li Xiwu and Xie Wen had a scene of them meeting. After all, the netizens had been looking forward to it. The production team would naturally satisfy the netizens, so they had specially arranged such a scene.

After officially starting the live broadcast, Li Xiwu, Han Qianye, Tao Jing, and Min Hanrong sat down at the long table. On the long table was the breakfast prepared by the production team and a fruit platter. It was very exquisite.

The moment Min Hanrong saw Han Qianye, she greeted her warmly, “Qianye, it’s only been a day since we last met. I miss you exceptionally.”

Who didn’t know how to speak plastic?

Han Qianye gave her face. “Me too. I feel like you’re my long-lost sister.”

Min Hanrong said, “Your makeup looks good today.”

Han Qianye said, “Your hairstyle is also good.”

Min Hanrong said, “The style of your clothes is very unique.”

Han Qianye said, “Your shoes are also unique.”

Everyone: “…”

It sounded like praise, but at the same time, it didn’t sound like praise too.
