Chapter 514: Doting On You

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

On the steps, Pei Jingzhou chatted with Shao Jingmo. Qiao Qiao came out of the house and looked up to see two charming men standing together and chatting happily on the steps.

Seeing this, Qiao Qiao turned around and said to Li Xiwu, who was behind her,

“Bae, don’t blame me for being evil. As long as we don’t know them, they’re a couple in my eyes at this moment.”

Hearing this, Li Xiwu walked out from behind Qiao Qiao and looked up at the two figures standing on the steps in front of her. After watching in silence for a few seconds, Li Xiwu turned to look at Qiao Qiao. ‘You’re right.”

Qiao Qiao held back her laughter. “If President Pei finds out that even you agree with the evil couple I’m in, his expression will definitely be interesting.”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows slightly. “Then tell me, what will happen to you when Shao Jingmo finds out that you’re into the evil fauxmance of him and my husband?”

“Tsk, what can he do?” Although Qiao Qiao was showing off, the smile on her face had gradually disappeared.

She can’t get into it! Something was going to happen if she got into it!

Seeing that Qiao Qiao couldn’t smile, Li Xiwu nudged Qiao Qiao with her elbow. “Why don’t we go over and talk to him?”

Qiao Qiao shook her head crazily. “No, no, no.”

How could she complain that her life was not long enough?

Li Xiwu’s words had a deeper meaning. “Even if you say it in front of Shao Jingmo, he won’t do anything. After all, you’re just husband and wife in name now.”

“That won’t do either. I can’t always jump on the edge of a knife. There’s a limit to Shao Jingmo’s tolerance for me.” Qiao Qiao knew her limits.

Seeing that Qiao Qiao’s expression had changed, Li Xiwu stopped teasing her. She mentioned staying at the MO residence tonight again and said, “It’s more lively here at Grandma’s place. The Li Mansion is too deserted. You’ll be more comfortable here than being alone with Shao Jingmo.”

Qiao Qiao said in a low voice, “Actually… it’s not that restrained.”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows. “Huh?”

Qiao Qiao bit her lip and smiled in embarrassment. After chatting for so long inside, Qiao Qiao didn’t mention to Li Xiwu that she had already shared a bed with Shao Jingmo in the hotel, although nothing had happened between the two of them.

She had not planned to say anything else about this matter, but for some reason, she could not help but reveal a little to Li Xiwu. “Actually, it’s fine to be alone with Shao Jingmo. I won’t be as restrained as before.”

Li Xiwu looked surprised. “You…?

Qiao Qiao quickly waved her hand to clarify. “We’re not there yet.”

Li Xiwu nodded meaningfully. “Oh…”

“It really didn’t come to that.” Qiao Qiao regretted mentioning this in front of Li Xiwu. It was easy to explain.

She had no choice. That was how it was with people she trusted.

Li Xiwu looked at Qiao Qiao’s nervous expression and couldn’t help but laugh. “l didn’t think too much about it. Besides, so what if it comes to that? It should be your decision at that time. He won’t force you.”

Qiao Qiao agreed with Li Xiwu. But there was a little bit she corrected. “l won’t.” Her tone sounded quite firm.

Li Xiwu’s voice was gentle. “It’s good that you won’t. That’s your decision. Even if you change your mind one day, don’t worry about me laughing at you. To me, your happiness is the most important.”

Qiao Qiao hugged Li Xiwu and kissed her fiercely. “l was in a hurry to reincarnate in this life and forgot to bring anything. I’ll definitely dote on you in my next life.”

The corners of Li Xiwu’s mouth twitched. “Where did you learn this?” Qiao Qiao said righteously, “On the Internet. There are many such jokes.” Li Xiwu was speechless, only caught between laughter and tears.

Qiao Qiao walked towards Shao Jingmo. She slowed down and almost didn’t make a sound. At that moment, Pei Jingzhou and Shao Jingmo talked about children. Shao Jingmo said, “President Pei is very lucky, but others’ children are the best. It’s too troublesome to have my own.”

Pei Jingzhou smiled faintly. “Your own child is the best. How can you be sure before you have one?”

Shao Jingmo looked at the night sky. “I’m not as lucky as President Pei.”

“You’re not unlucky.” Pei Jingzhou smiled and glanced sideways. “Niiss Qiao likes children very much.”

Qiao Qiao, who was slowly approaching, almost staggered when she heard Pei Jingzhou say, “Miss Qiao likes children very much.” She barely stabilized herself and shifted her gaze to Pei Jingzhou, looking at him steadily.

Shao Jingmo met Pei Jingzhou’s gaze. “President Pei actually understands a certain logic. Just because you like something doesn’t mean that you have it too.”

Pei Jingzhou could not deny this. “Indeed.” As soon as he finished speaking, Pei Jingzhou looked back and saw Qiao Qiao standing there. Pei Jingzhou said, “Miss Qiao, did you hear everything?”

Qiao Qiao smiled dryly. “Hear what?”

Seeing that Qiao Qiao was pretending to be confused, Pei Jingzhou did not say anything.

When it was almost seven o’clock, Qiao Qiao left the MO residence with Shao Jingmo and headed for the Li Mansion.

Qiao Qiao leaned against the car window and waved at Li Xiwu. “Bye-bye~”

Li Xiwu said, “Be careful on the road.’

Qiao Qiao turned to Shao Jingmo and said, “Did you hear that? Drive slowly on the road.’

Shao Jingmo replied, “Okay.”

The car drove away and gradually disappeared from view.

Li Xiwu glanced sideways at Pei Jingzhou. “What did you talk to Shao Jingmo about just now?”

Pei Jingzhou reached out and naturally wrapped his arm around Li Xiwu’s back. “He envied me for having both children and said that I was so lucky. I comforted him that Qiao Qiao liked children very much. His reaction was probably expressing that he wasn’t as lucky as me.”

Li Xiwu: ‘

She didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “Fourth Brother, why don’t you take a loudspeaker and tell the world that you have both children?”

“I’ve had this thought,” Pei Jingzhou said.

Li Xiwu laughed at him. “Childish.”

Pei Jingzhou refused to admit it. “Is it childish?”

Li Xiwu nodded. “Very childish.”

“Childish it is.” He didn’t argue further. “It’s my fault for having both children.’

Li Xiwu sneered and couldn’t be bothered to talk to him anymore. Recalling Shao Jingmo’s expression just now, she asked, “Did you say something to provoke Shao Jingmo?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Not really.”

Li Xiwu chased after him and asked, “Tell me quickly.” Pei Jingzhou glanced sideways at her. “Why are you looking at me?” she urged him. “What else did you talk to Shao Jingmo about?”

Pei Jingzhou said truthfully, “1 told him that Qiao Qiao likes children.”

Li Xiwu suddenly remembered that day in the courtyard. Qiao Qiao had almost kissed Yaoyao till he was on the verge of tears. At that time, Pei Jingzhou had asked Qiao Qiao if she liked children very much. Qiao Qiao had said yes without hesitation and said that she liked children the most. She did not expect Pei Jingzhou to spread this news to Shao Jingmo!

No wonder Qiao Qiao looked so strange at that time.

Li Xiwu didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. She quietly reminded Pei Jingzhou, “Qiao Qiao’s relationship with Shao Jingmo hasn’t reached that stage yet. Don’t mention this in the future.”

Pei Jingzhou raised his eyebrows. “Looks like I was worrying for nothing..”
