Chapter 494: Awakened from the Dream

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

Pei Jingzhou asked, “Did you make this decision?”

She suppressed the ache in her heart and steadied her emotions as they approached the breach. “Yes.”

Pei Jingzhou asked her again, “Is your heart aching for me to run back and forth between the capital and Country T? You’re afraid that I’ll tire myself out and want me to stay in the capital to rest?”

Li You bit her lip so hard that her lips turned white. Look, at this moment, he would still take the initiative to find a reasonable reason for her. Li You gritted her teeth and replied, “Yes.”

Pei Jingzhou said calmly, “What if I don’t listen?”


He was testing her bottom line. Testing if she’d change her mind because of what he’d said. Li You said angrily, “Up to you. All I want to do now is stay with Mom.’

Pei Jingzhou asked her calmly, “Li You, what exactly do you want?”

Li You asked, “Do you think that I’ve fallen in love with someone else at this juncture and made this decision not to let you come to Country T because I want to be with someone else behind your back?”

They were about to start arguing. But in fact, the two of them had never quarreled seriously. Even if there were some conflicts in the past, they were only trivial matters. But this time, it seemed that if she continued, they would really argue.

Pei Jingzhou asked her, “Tell me, what exactly are you thinking?”

Li You said calmly, “l already told you what I was thinking. You probably didn’t listen to me seriously just now.”

Pei Jingzhou said in a low voice, “Li You!”

Li You also raised her voice. “Pei Jingzhou, what do you want? I just want to be by Mom’s side. I don’t want to miss every minute and second by Mom’s side.

Can’t I even do this?”

This reason was not far-fetched. It was the only reason she could use to deceive Pei Jingzhou. It did work. In the end, Pei Jingzhou really compromised. He sneered. “Alright, I promise you that I won’t come to

Country T. I’ll come back on the day you want to see me. How about that?”

He enunciated each word through gritted teeth. It was obvious how angry he was at this moment. However, despite being so angry, Pei Jingzhou did not hang up. He only ended the call after reminding her a few times.

After Li You took down the cell phone, she felt a lump in her throat. She raised her head and took a deep breath, trying to suppress her tears. After a long time, she finally forced her tears back. She slowly leaned back, bent her knees, and hugged her legs. She stared blankly at the photo of Pei Jingzhou on the cabinet opposite her…

In the following days, Pei Jingzhou did not come to Country T again. Li You accompanied her mother to the house Madam Di Xin had prepared for them.

Time flew by.

Li You’s pregnancy was already seven months old. In the past seven months, Madam Di Xin had accompanied Li You during every prenatal checkup. With the protection of the guards, nothing had gone wrong in the past seven months.

Usually, when Madam Di Xin was by Li You’s side, she rarely talked to her about the Cabinet. These days, however, every time Madam Di Xin mentioned it to Li You, it was about the Cabinet.

Because the war was about to start.

Li You was worried about the war that was about to happen at any moment while paying attention to her mother’s recent physical condition. She did not know if she had changed her address, but MO Zhu’s chemotherapy had been very effective in the past few months. Everything was going well.

But recently, for some reason, MO Zhu’s health was deteriorating and her mental state was getting worse.

Li You was worried that it would be too late. After discussing with the doctor, she chose to undergo a C-section in advance,

When Madam Di Xin found out that she was going to have a C-section early, she rushed to the hospital to stop her, but it was already too late. Li You went to the operating table.

After nearly two hours, Li You fell asleep and woke up again on the operating table. When she woke up, she fell asleep again. In a daze, she heard a baby crying. The tears she had been holding back for a long time finally fell.

At the same time, when Jiang Ce saw Li Xiwu’s pained expression because of everything that had happened in the dream, he understood that it could end here. He turned and extinguished the incense next to him.

As the fragrance went out, a moment later, the painful expression on Li Xiwu’s face gradually disappeared and she returned to calm. Jiang Ce reached out and snapped his fingers in Li Xiwu’s ear. “Dreams are the past, not where you belong. It’s time for you to wake up.”

Li Xiwu slowly opened her eyes. In front of her was Jiang Ce l s enlarged face.. She stared at it for a moment and murmured hoarsely, “l woke up from a dream…
