54 Support You

Fourth High School was the best high school in the capital.

Pei You’an was just an ordinary student in school. Other than the principal who knew Pei You’an’s identity and background, the form teacher and the other teachers did not know about Pei You’an’s powerful background.

Li Xiwu entered the office. There were two or three teachers sitting inside. They looked to be in their fifties and were very experienced.

Pei You’an’s form teacher was in her fifties. She sized Li Xiwu up and asked, “Who are you to Pei You’an?” Her voice was strong and authoritative.

Li Xiwu answered truthfully, “I’m Pei You’an’s sister-in-law.”

The form teacher nodded. “Since ancient times, the eldest sister-in-law has always been like a mother. I have nothing to say. Since you represent Pei You’an’s parents, you have to take on the responsibility as their parent.”

Li Xiwu said, “Go ahead.”

As they conversed, the bias in the form teacher’s tone was obvious. “Pei You’an’s grades are bad, and he’s at the bottom of every exam. Not only is he not focused on studying, but he’s also focused on dating. Is this what he should do at his age? Chi Xia’s grades are so good, and her future is bright. Pei You’an is ruining Chi Xia’s future.”

After hearing this, Li Xiwu only said, “Can I meet Chi Xia? Our You’an did something wrong. I want You’an to apologize to her seriously.”

When the form teacher heard this, she felt that Pei You’an’s eldest sister-in-law indeed had the demeanor of a parent. She didn’t pester hrt like other parents and say that she was wrong or criticize her as she protected her child. Instead, she sincerely said that she wanted to apologize.

In the past, there were parents of male students who slandered female students in all sorts of ways the moment they arrived. Their words were very unpleasant. Just based on Pei You’an’s parents’ attitude, the form teacher was very satisfied.

The form teacher stood up. “Wait a moment. I’ll call Chi Xia over.”

Li Xiwu nodded. “Okay, sorry to trouble you.”

The form teacher waved her off and left the office. When she went out and saw Pei You’an standing there obediently, she did not forget to reprimand him before leaving.

Pei You’an’s expression was not good. When he looked up and saw Li Xiwu coming out, Pei You’an perked up and asked, “Sister-in-law, how did your discussion with the Mediterranean go?”

Li Xiwu took a step forward and looked at Pei You’an, who was a head taller than her. She said slowly, “Apologize to Chi Xia later.”

Pei You’an exploded when he heard this. “Why should I apologize to her? She was the one who framed me. She’s sick. I think she should go to a doctor.”

There was also grievance in his voice. He did feel quite aggrieved. How could he have expected that casually accepting a love letter would cause him so much trouble that he would call his parents?

The Pei family’s upbringing was not strict, but Father Pei was relatively strict. Even if this matter was not Pei You’an’s fault, he was still afraid that it would alarm the family and cause even more trouble. That was why he asked Li Xiwu to come over and just go through the motions.

Unexpectedly, she actually wanted him to apologize to that lunatic! So frustrating!

Li Xiwu looked at Pei You’an’s angry expression and could not help but want to laugh. But it was indeed unkind to laugh like that. After all, it was such a serious matter. She took a deep breath. “I’ve already told your form teacher just now that you have to apologize and admit your mistake this time. If you don’t apologize, my trip here today won’t be of much use. In the end, they’ll probably still report it to your parents.”

Pei You’an said aggrievedly, “Sister-in-law, I thought you were here to support me.” He was almost 1.8 meters tall and looked like a child when he was aggrieved.

Li Xiwu suppressed the corners of her lips and said calmly to him, “Although you’re still a year away from adulthood, you’re half a man, right? Think about it. If I really scold that girl called Chi Xia in front of you, do you think this is support?”

Pei You’an thought for a moment. “No.” However, he would be really unhappy if he apologized like this.

Li Xiwu could understand his unhappiness. She looked up at Pei You’an and reminded him, “When you apologize, you have to say that you have realized that you have caused a lot of trouble for the other party. Every word has to express your apology after deep reflection.”

Pei You’an: “?”

Forget about the apology, why did he have to sound so sincere? Pei You’an felt extremely aggrieved. “Sister-in-law, are you really my biological sister-in-law!”

Li Xiwu said, “Couldn’t be any more fake.”

Pei You’an: “..”

Buzz. Her phone was vibrating. Pei You’an said, “Sister-in-law, your phone is ringing.”

Li Xiwu took out her phone and looked at it. It was a WeChat message from Han Qianye: [Are you back?]

Li Xiwu typed a reply: [About half an hour.]

Han Qianye did not reply. Li Xiwu put away her phone.

Pei You’an asked, “Is it my mother?”

Li Xiwu smiled faintly. “You saw?”

Pei You’an said, “Sister-in-law, I’m really afraid that you won’t be my sister-in-law after you come back from the variety show.” He knew that his mother did not like his sister-in-law. This time, his mother probably had ill intentions when she dragged his sister-in-law to the variety show.

Just as he was thinking this, the Mediterranean form teacher brought Chi Xia over.

Li Xiwu looked past the form teacher and at the girl behind her. She had a ponytail and was wearing the school uniform of Fourth High School. She was of medium height and looked very delicate.

Li Xiwu sighed.

Pei You’an immediately said, “Sister-in-law, I’m sorry. This has been hard on you. I apologize.” Pei You’an thought that Li Xiwu sighed because he was disobedient and unwilling to apologize, making her feel troubled.

But in fact, Li Xiwu sighed because she was sure. This Chi Xia was Chi Xu’s biological sister, Chi Xia. There was no mistake. Because she had seen Chi Xia on the day Xie Wen gave birth.

At that time, she waited in the ward until Zheng Yuehua and Chi Xia arrived. When Zheng Yuehua found out that Xie Wen had given birth to a daughter, she was not in the mood to come to the hospital at all. After Chi Xia came, she called her sister-in-law. Chi Xia took the initiative to do what Zheng Yuehua was unwilling to do.

At that time, Li Xiwu had a good impression of this little girl.

At this moment, the Mediterranean form teacher brought Chi Xia over and said with a long face, “Pei You’an, hurry up and apologize to Chi Xia!”

Chi Xia looked at Pei You’an and smiled smugly. After her gaze landed on Li Xiwu, her smile immediately disappeared.

Li Xiwu saw the change in Chi Xia’s expression when she saw her. She took half a step forward. “Pei You’an said that your name is Chi Xia, right?”

Chi Xia’s gaze drifted and she did not dare to look Li Xiwu in the eye. “Yes.”

Li Xiwu introduced herself. “I’m Pei You’an’s sister-in-law.”

Chi Xia nodded, still not daring to look directly at Li Xiwu.

Li Xiwu said, “I’ve already understood the situation from your form teacher. It’s an important moment to prepare for next year’s college entrance examination. Pei You’an’s actions have severely affected your preparation for the college entrance examination. I’ve already reprimanded Pei You’an just now. He also deeply realized his mistake, so he wants to apologize to you.”

Hearing this, Chi Xia then looked up at Li Xiwu. After a moment of looking at each other, Chi Xia saw a kind smile on Li Xiwu’s face.

Did she… not recognize her?
