58 She’s Really Too Considerate

“Han Qianye, you’re finished.” Lin Yourong spoke loudly, afraid that Han Qianye could not hear her.

Han Qianye asked, “Finished? Me?”

Lin Yourong reminded her, “Have you forgotten your ultimate goal in dragging Li Xiwu on this in-law variety show?”

Han Qianye said seriously, “I didn’t forget.”

Lin Yourong said in a resentful tone, “Then tell me yourself.”

Han Qianye asked, “Say what?”

Lin Yourong: “…”

Previously, it was Han Qianye who hung up first. This time, Lin Yourong was so angry that she hung up first. Han Qianye did not mind and wondered why Rongrong was so anxious. It must be autumn. The weather was dry and people were a little heaty.

She thoughtfully composed a WeChat message and sent it to Lin Yourong: [If you’re heaty, you have to brew Indigo Root to drink it. The effect is the best.] After sending the WeChat message, Han Qianye sighed. As her best friend, she was really too considerate. She looked at the time. It had been more than fifty minutes since she sent Li Xiwu a WeChat message.

Han Qianye suddenly stood up. She had to go downstairs and take a look first. Perhaps Li Xiwu had already returned.

Han Qianye stomped downstairs and looked around the entire hall. She only saw a huge grapefruit on the dining table and did not see Li Xiwu. Her expression immediately became disappointed.

“Why isn’t she back yet…” Han Qianye frowned. She picked up her phone and was about to call Li Xiwu when someone called her from behind, “Qianye?”

Ten minutes ago.

After Li Xiwu finished eating, she prepared to wash the bowl and rest for a while. While she washed the dishes, someone came to the inn to sell fruit. The person who came looked to be in his early fifties. He came in with a grapefruit in each hand. He looked around and asked in a loud voice, “Do you want to buy grapefruit?”

Li Xiwu looked up. “A grapefruit?”

The person said, “I heard that the inn is recording a variety show. There are a lot of people, so I brought two over to take a look. Do you want grapefruit?”

It wasn’t arranged by the production team? For a moment, Li Xiwu wasn’t sure. She washed her hands and wiped them clean before walking over. “Is this grapefruit sweet?”

Han Pin said, “It’s not that sweet.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

Han Pin said, “Business is all about integrity. It’s indeed not very sweet.”

Li Xiwu smiled and asked, “Can I try it before buying it?”

“Of course.” Han Pin enthusiastically took out half a grapefruit from his pocket and handed it to Li Xiwu. “Try it.”

Li Xiwu took it. “I thought I could taste that grapefruit you’re carrying.”

Han Pin chuckled. “It’s all the same.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

She could answer on any occasion. Only this time, she could not say anything. Before the grapefruit entered her mouth, her saliva glands began to secrete crazily. Li Xiwu frowned after eating a little.

Han Pin asked her, “I’m not lying to you, am I?”

Li Xiwu’s expression soured into a mask of pain.

Han Pin asked, “Are you buying it? Ten yuan each is equivalent to selling it cheaply.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

Logically speaking, she wouldn’t even want such a gift. Li Xiwu didn’t know which house in town the other party was from or how far he had walked. “Then I’ll buy one.”

Han Pin chose the largest of the two grapefruit for Li Xiwu. “Alipay or WeChat?”

Li Xiwu said, “WeChat.”

Han Pin grinned. “That would be best.” After paying, Han Pin said, “Why don’t we add each other on WeChat? If you want to eat grapefruit, buy it from me. It’ll be delivered.”

She could add him on WeChat, but she probably wouldn’t buy any grapefruits. Li Xiwu placed the grapefruit on the dining table and wiped her hands. Seeing that Han Pin was about to leave after promoting a grapefruit, she stopped him. “Mister, what other fruits do you have at home besides grapefruit?”

Han Ping stood at the threshold. “In addition to grapefruit, there is also grapefruit.” With that, Han Pin asked, “What fruit do you want to eat? My neighbor planted a little of all kinds of fruits. If you don’t mind me being the middleman, I’ll bargain for you. If I can’t bargain, I’ll help you steal some to try.”

Li Xiwu suppressed a smile. “Mister, do you have kumquat?” The kumquats were delicious this time of year.

Han Pin smiled and said, “My family has it, but I’m not selling it.”

Li Xiwu asked, “Can I try it?”

Han Pin was open-minded. “Of course.”

Hence, Li Xiwu brought the cameraman out to Han Pin’s house. Other than the cameraman, Director Gao also went.

Director Gao sat in his room for the entire afternoon. His butt hurt from sitting. He asked Yu Jing to keep an eye on it. When the time came, he had to broadcast on time. Then, he followed them to Han Pin’s house.

He wouldn’t know until he went. But he was shocked.

Han Pin, who was carrying two grapefruit to promote, was actually the richest family in town. He lived in a big villa.

Li Xiwu asked casually, “Has Mister always been in Fu Town?”

Han Ping said, “No, I used to live in the First Ring.”

Director Gao couldn’t help but add, “Yo, staying in the First Ring. The rent is extremely expensive.”

Han Pin turned around and glanced at him. “Rent? I didn’t rent it.”

Gao Yueban: “?”

Han Pin said, “Although the house I used to live in was relatively old, the courtyard is still considered big. It’s good to live there. If it weren’t for the demolition later, I wouldn’t have moved to Fu Town to enjoy my later years.”

Gao Yueban couldn’t help but speak up just now. Now he couldn’t keep his mouth shut. “Demolition? What house?”

Han Pin said, “A Siheyuan.”


Han Pin said, “Oh, it’s two Siheyuans.”

“… …”

Han Pin said in a neighborly tone, “Not much. Just a few billion.”

“… … …”

Gao Yueban coughed awkwardly. “I’ve never seen more than a billion yuan in denomination when I’m offering to my ancestors.”

Li Xiwu continued Gao Yueban’s words. “Director Gao, this kind of large denomination of hell money is no longer manufactured much. I heard that it’s not universally used below. Now, it’s all burned yellow paper.”

Gao Yueban: “…”

Han Ping was a very easy person to get along with. He said that he was the only one staying in the entire villa these few days. The rest of the family had gone to visit their relatives. And he was also bored. When he heard that the inn was recording a variety show, he came over with grapefruit.

Li Xiwu picked a dozen kumquats. Because she had to rush to the live broadcast, she could not stay long.

Gao Yueban was the director and had the right to decide. In the end, he decided to start a live broadcast at Han Pin’s house. The main reason was that he wanted to stay here for a while longer, and Han Pin was very willing.

However, Li Xiwu was the only one in the live-stream of Group Four. Han Qianye was still at the inn. Director Gao went to call Yu Jing and asked him to tell Han Qianye the location and ask if Han Qianye was willing to come over.

Yu Jing said, “Miss Li’s mother-in-law is probably almost at your place. The assistant brought her here.”

Gao Yue was surprised. “What? They’re already here?”

“Little Li.” On the other side, Han Pin walked over with a purple pot in his hand. “Are you done picking them?”

Li Xiwu replied, “Mister, I didn’t pick them all. They’re quite sweet. You can try a few.”

Han Pin took a sip of tea and said, “You’re interesting, girl. However, you might have to change the way you address me.”

Li Xiwu looked up at Han Pin. Han Pin looked unfathomable. “Just call me Uncle.”

Li Xiwu: “?”
