Chapter 517: Fourth Brother Couldn’t Help But Dig Up Old Scores

Translator: Henyee Translations    Editor: Henyee Translations

Xue Jinzhu was not exaggerating at all. She had spent a lot of effort snatching the roasted lamb leg that she had just brought to Li Xiwu.

She took out a wet tissue from her pocket and handed it to Li Xiwu. “Sister Li, quickly wipe your hands and try it. It’s so fragrant. President Pei has spent a lot this time. The roasted whole lamb that was treated by President Pei is a Damascus goat! ”

Li Xiwu was surprised to hear that the roasted whole lamb today was a Damascus goat. This goat was indeed very expensive, and it was a rare goat breed in the Middle East. Its meat was much more delicious than ordinary mutton.

Pei Jingzhou crossed his long legs and said calmly, “You don’t have to use the words ‘spent a lot’ on me. What’s this? It’s not even a piece of wool.”

Xue Jinzhu gave him a thumbs up. “President Pei is generous.”

“It’s not a big deal.” Pei Jingzhou reminded her, “Hurry back and eat more. It’ll be gone if you’re late.”

“Yes, yes, yes. It’ll be gone later.” Xue Jinzhu hurriedly turned around and left.

Li Xiwu reminded her, “Be careful not to fall.”

Xue Jinzhu waved her hand as she ran. ‘Got it, got it.”

Li Xiwu smiled and placed the candied hawthorn back in the box. She pulled out a wet tissue to wipe her hands, then used both hands to tear off a piece of mutton stained with chili from the roasted lamb leg. She subconsciously wanted to feed the mutton to Pei Jingzhou first.

Pei Jingzhou always gave her the first bite of delicacies, and she habitually gave him the first bite. He did not refuse when he saw her tear up the mutton and feed it to him. But Li Xiwu suddenly reacted and pulled her hand back. Pei Jingzhou looked at her quietly.

Li Xiwu suddenly remembered something she had almost forgotten. “You…

don’t like mutton.’

Seeing that she suddenly remembered, Pei Jingzhou asked her calmly, “Are you sure I don’t like mutton?” He just wanted to make sure she really remembered, so he asked her seriously.

Li Xiwu replied with certainty, “You don’t like it.”

Pei Jingzhou did not like to eat mutton tour years ago. At that time, he almost did not eat it. It was his personal taste, and there was no other reason. In the next four years, he would occasionally try some mutton and gradually try to accept it, but he would definitely not eat much. At most, he would take a bite.

After Li Xiwu retracted her hand, she fed herself the lamb leg meat she had just torn off. As she ate, she said, “1 remember that the first time you went to my house, my mother made mutton soup. You looked strange since you entered the house. At that time, I thought you didn’t like my house,”

That was the first time Pei Jingzhou had gone to her house. Of course, he was not her boyfriend. At that time, she and Pei Jingzhou were only 15 or 16 years old.

Pei Jingzhou continued, “After that day, you ignored me for a week.”

Li Xiwu stopped moving her cheeks and turned to look at Pei Jingzhou. “l knew that you would remember the week I ignored you very clearly, and for a long time.”

“Of course, but the reason I remember is because that was the first time I went to your house.” Pei Jingzhou smiled gently. “At that time, I racked my brains, but I still didn’t know the reason why you were ignoring me.”

“That was the beginning of our first cold war. We didn’t see each other for nearly half a year after that.” Li Xiwu swallowed the mutton in her mouth. The spiciness immediately rose. She opened her mouth and hissed.

Pei Jingzhou reached out and took the light purple thermos flask on the table.

He had picked this thermos flask when he went shopping with Li Xiwu. Li

Xiwu had been using it recently. Pei Jingzhou opened the lid and handed it to

Li Xiwu. “Come.”

Li Xiwu took the thermos and took a small sip. “Anyone who can eat spicy food feels a little spicy.”

Pei Jingzhou reminded her, “You’ve already stopped spicy food for a while. If you don’t eat it for too long, your tolerance will decrease.”

“That’s true,” Li Xiwu agreed. She took another sip of warm water. Seeing that Pei Jingzhou was about to put away the roasted lamb leg on the table, she quickly said, “1 want to eat more.” Although it was a little spicy, the spicier it was, the better it smelled. Especially since she hadn’t eaten spicy food for a long time. It was rare for her to touch it, so she couldn’t control her mouth.

Pei Jingzhou naturally wouldn’t put it away forcefully. When he heard that she wanted to eat it, he opened it again and reminded her, “Eat less.”

“Got it.” Li Xiwu tore off another piece of lamb leg meat. It was a pity that Pei Jingzhou did not eat mutton. Otherwise, she would definitely show off in front of Pei Jingzhou. As expected of the meat of a Damascus goat. It was delicious.

She was eating happily when Pei Jingzhou asked her, “I’ve never asked you. We ignored each other for half a year. If I hadn’t taken the initiative to look for you, would you really have ignored me?”

Pei Jingzhou had never asked about this before. Because there was no topic suitable to bring up. Pei Jingzhou asked because she had mentioned this topic just now.

Li Xiwu’s bulging cheeks slowly stopped. She took a sip of water and swallowed the meat in her mouth. She gently put down the thermos without turning to look at Pei Jingzhou. “I’ve thought about it.”

She could actually lie to Pei Jingzhou. After all, it had happened a long time ago. Even if she lied, Pei Jingzhou would not know. But she told the truth anyway. Therefore, she did not dare to look at Pei Jingzhou. After saying that, she felt guilty.

Pei Jingzhou smiled.

Li Xiwu suddenly sat up straight and mustered her courage to turn to look at him. “l was immature and childish back then.’

Pei Jingzhou said, “Are you so childish that you want to never contact me again?”

Li Xiwu said, “l…

Pei Jingzhou raised his eyebrows. “Hm?” She shouldn’t have mentioned this again. Li Xiwu regretted it. If she had known, she would have stopped Pei Jingzhou from bringing this up.

Li Xiwu took a deep breath and called him by his full name. “Pei Jingzhou, don’t push your luck.” She was at a disadvantage just now, but now that her mind was clear, she immediately took out her aura to suppress it.

Pei Jingzhou tilted his head and looked at her from the corner of his eye. His smile was a little too demonic. “Huh? I’m pushing my luck?”

Li Xiwu said, “It’s the New Year. Are you sure you want to dig up old scores with me?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “l was wrong.”

Li Xiwu drew a tissue to wipe her hands. “That’s more like it.” She threw the tissue into the trash can and looked up at Pei Jingzhou’s aggrieved face. She sighed and wondered if she was being too domineering. She pressed down on him fiercely every time.

Taking advantage of the fact that there was no one around, she got up and sat on Pei Jingzhou’s lap before he could react. She placed her hands on his shoulders. Fourth Brother, are you aggrieved?”

Pei Jingzhou naturally wrapped his arm around her waist to prevent her from falling back. “Aggrieved? No.”

Li Xiwu told him the truth. “Actually, I was really happy when you took the initiative to look for me.’

“I know,” he said..
