Chapter 499: Mr. Pei’s Heartfelt Words

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

Not long after, it began to snow outside. It was cold. The fireplace in the Li Mansion was burning and filled with warmth. Uncle Cai was busy in the backyard, and Qiao Qiao had probably slipped to the backyard. Now, only Li Xiwu and Pei Jingzhou were in the entire huge living room.

Five days was not long, but it felt like five years to Pei Jingzhou. He kept muttering in Li Xiwu’s ear, “l haven’t eaten or slept well in the past five days. I’m even distracted at work.’

He then picked up Li Xiwu’s hand and pressed it against his chest. Through the cashmere fabric, she felt the heat from his body. It was quite warm. As she warmed her hands, it burrowed into his clothes. Pei Jingzhou asked her, “Did you feel it?”

Li Xiwu nodded. “l feel it. It’s quite warm.”

“I’m not asking you to feel warm,” he said faintly.


Li Xiwu pretended not to know. “Then what do you want me to feel?”

Pei Jingzhou asked her, “Don’t you think I’ve lost weight?”

She raised her hand and tapped his chest with her slender fingertips. It was a faint gesture that was a little seductive. Then she asked quietly, “Well… did you?”

Pei Jingzhou looked at her heartless expression and his molars itched. “You didn’t feel it at all?”

Li Xiwu looked at his gritted teeth and said with a smile, “Okay… I feel it.” These words finally had a hint of coaxing. But that tone always sounded a little perfunctory. Pei Jingzhou grabbed her hand that was messing with his chest and said in a low voice, “I’ve really lost weight. I’ll show you tonight.”

Li Xiwu bit her lower lip. “Actually, I was lying when I said I felt it.”

Pei Jingzhou’s expression was dark. “I could tell long ago.”

Li Xiwu looked up at him with a serious expression. “The feeling is fake, but the vision is real. I noticed it when you came in just now. Fourth Brother, you’ve really lost some weight in the past five days.”

If what she said just now was a little coaxing, then her words now were really coaxing him.

He loved every word he heard.

Seeing that his expression had improved a lot, Li Xiwu thought to herself that this person was really easy to coax. It has been like this in the past and now. Nothing had changed after so many years.

She retracted her hand from Pei Jingzhou. In the end, she couldn’t pull it back after two tries. Pei Jingzhou clenched his fists tightly. Li Xiwu said, “Before you came, Qiao Qiao and I were cutting paper. We’ve already cut one. I’ll cut another one and plan to put it on the wall in the bedroom upstairs.”

Pei Jingzhou let go. “What was cut?”

Li Xiwu replied, “A word.”

Scissors and paper cuttings were placed on the coffee table. If she kept cutting these, she could kill the afternoon. Li Xiwu picked up the scissors and paper cutting. Pei Jingzhou did not disturb Li Xiwu from continuing to cut. He casually picked up the paper cutting on the coffee table and opened it. It was a ‘Fu e word.

The cut was not exquisite. Pei Jingzhou gave an evaluation. “It’s barely neat.”

Li Xiwu was not angry when she heard that. She stuffed the scissors and paper cutting in her hand to Pei Jingzhou. “l want a rabbit. Cut a rabbit for me.”

Pei Jingzhou looked at the scissors and paper she handed him and said honestly, “l don’t know how to.”

“Then cut a puppy?” she said.

Pei Jingzhou said, “l don’t know that either.”

Li Xiwu looked at him calmly, her eyes full of mockery. “Fourth Brother, what do you know how to cut?”

Pei Jingzhou returned the cutting paper to her and praised, “l don’t know how to cut anything. Mrs. Pei, you cut it well. You’re the best.”

Li Xiwu took the paper cut from Pei Jingzhou. “Against your conscience.”

Pei Jingzhou retracted his gaze. “How is it against my conscience? It’s clearly from the bottom of my heart.”

Li Xiwu suppressed a smile so that she didn’t laugh too much. “It’s a little perfunctory, but it’s nice.”

Pei Jingzhou raised his eyebrows and retorted, “Perfunctory? How is it perfunctory? Mrs. Pei, you did a good job.”

Li Xiwu snorted. She had done it on purpose just now. The word “fortune” was indeed not well cut, but the level of what she had just learned was only so-so. There was still the upper limit, but it would take time.

However, after Pei Jingzhou said that, she immediately became competitive. Seeing that Pei Jingzhou admitted defeat so easily, she smiled to herself and couldn’t help but think of the past. In the past, Pei Jingzhou would compromise with her every time.

Calculating the time, she had known him since she was five years old. Other than the three years when she lost her memory and got married, Pei Jingzhou had become a serf. She had been bullying Pei Jingzhou for the rest of the seventeen years.

Thinking of this, Li Xiwu couldn’t help but laugh. Pei Jingzhou asked her what she was laughing about.

Li Xiwu moved the word away and moved closer to Pei Jingzhou. She looked up and asked him, “When I think about how I’ve bullied Fourth Brother for more than ten years, do you sometimes feel aggrieved?”

“Aggrieved! Of course I’m aggrieved.” He finished her sentence with a resigned tone. “Sometimes it’s so aggrieved to think about it. It’s been more than ten years, not a few years.”

He acted it out. However, Li Xiwu could not tell and thought that Pei Jingzhou was taking the opportunity to talk to her. Guilt immediately rose. She straightened. “l was a little naughty in the past. I was young and frivolous and insensible. It’s different now.”

Pei Jingzhou raised his eyebrows and looked at her. “What’s different now?”

Li Xiwu said, “Now 1 know how to reason.’

Thinking about the past, how could she be willing to be reasonable? Sometimes, she was really domineering. However, Pei Jingzhou was willing to dote on her and spoil her, but she was still domineering.

“Then tell me a reason now.” He waited patiently, rather seriously.

Li Xiwu reached out to him and gently covered the back of his hand with her palm. “I’ll be gentler to you in the future.” Pei Jingzhou looked at her calmly. Li Xiwu didn’t hear him speak. She leaned closer to him. “I’m serious. I’ll be gentler in the future and treat you well.”

Pei Jingzhou raised his hand and pointed between her eyebrows. “l believe you…” Li Xiwu grinned. Before she could laugh for more than two seconds, he added, “if I’m a fool.’

I believe you if I’m a fool.

The smile on Li Xiwu’s lips froze as she waved his hand away. “Between husband and wife…

“There’s no trust between husband and wife.” Pei Jingzhou seemed to know how to read minds and guessed everything she wanted to say. “Mrs. Pei, is that what you want to say?”

Li Xiwu was instantly speechless. She admitted that she was occasionally at a disadvantage in terms of words. After all, the other party was Pei Jingzhou. She had to accommodate her husband.

Although she was so clear-headed, she did not look happy. Pei Jingzhou saw it all.

Pei Jingzhou smiled and asked, “Are you angry?”

Li Xiwu said nothing. She took the scissors and paper and cut the other word as quickly as possible. After cutting it, they would compare it. Well, it was barely symmetrical. Then, she took the word ‘fortune’ and got up to walk upstairs.

After taking a few steps, she did not hear a sound behind her. She turned around and saw Pei Jingzhou still sitting on the sofa, looking at her with a smile.

Li Xiwu raised her hand and looked at the fifteen-carat pink diamond ring on her middle finger. She turned to look at Pei Jingzhou. In the end, she decided to turn back for the sake of the pink diamond. “Fourth Brother, please go upstairs..”
