Chapter 598: It’s Really Only You (3)

Translator: Henyee Translations   Editor: Henyee Translations

Qiao Qiao was about to cry again. “Bae, every word you say pokes at my heart.”

Li Xiwu chuckled. “Make a decision.’

The call fell silent. There was no sound from Qiao Qiao’s end at all. Li Xiwu was in no hurry and waited patiently. About a minute later, she heard Qiao Qiao sniffle. Then, she heard Qiao Qiao say, “l know what to do. I’ll hang up first.’

Li Xiwu nodded. “Don’t stay up late. Go to bed early.”

The call ended.

Li Xiwu stared at the cell phone in a daze for a few seconds until Pei Jingzhou reached over and took the phone away. “It’s time to sleep.”

Li Xiwu turned to look at him. “Did you hear everything?”

Pei Jingzhou placed his phone on the bedside table. “Obviously.”

Li Xiwu moved closer to him. “Then what do you think?”

Pei Jingzhou took off her coat. “An upright official will have difficulties resolving family matters.” With that, he pulled her to lie down.

Li Xiwu was no longer sleepy. She wanted to sit up and chat, but as soon as she sat up, Pei Jingzhou pulled her down and she lay in his arms. She stopped moving and rubbed her brow against his chest, finding a comfortable position. “Just give me an opinion, based on what you’ve heard.”

Pei Jingzhou remained silent. Li Xiwu pinched him lightly. Pei Jingzhou laughed softly. “1 shouldn’t have woken you up.”

Li Xiwu pinched his finger and poked it instead. “Chat with me.” Although she had said a lot to enlighten Qiao Qiao tonight, only Qiao Qiao knew if it was useful. Those who did something wrong could just be persuaded. However, the probability of persuasion being effective for people in love was actually very small. Li Xiwu knew it too well, but she didn’t think she had a love brain.

Especially compared to Pei Jingzhou, who was more romantic. This was not her imagination. This was a fact that Pei Jingzhou had admitted.

“The Qiao family’s matter hasn’t been resolved yet, so I don’t have any opinions on Qiao Qiao and Shao Jingmo for the time being. If I have to say what I think, then everything will come to an end after the Qiao family’s matter is over.”

These were Pei Jingzhou’s rational words.

Qiao Qiao didn’t sleep well all night.

The next morning, she woke up with dark circles under her eyes. Her hair was not washed and her face was not wiped. She sat at the dining table and yawned frequently. Compared to Lin Xingruo, who was dressed very exquisitely, she looked like a village girl.

As Lin Xingruo smeared cranberry sauce on her toast, she asked Qiao Qiao, “Sister Qiao Qiao, you look so haggard today. Did you not sleep well last night?”

As Lin Xingruo asked, Father and Mother Qiao looked over, but Shao Jingmo did not look at her. Qiao Qiao quickly glanced over and lowered her head. “I’m not feeling well. I don’t have the energy to dress up.”

Mother Qiao’s heart ached. “Then take today off and don’t go to the office.”

Qiao Qiao subconsciously glanced at Shao Jingmo. Lin Xingruo sensed Qiao

Qiao’s gaze and also looked at Shao Jingmo. Then, her gaze moved back and forth between Qiao Qiao and Shao Jingmo twice before she suddenly smiled.

Lin Xingruo shouted, “Little Uncle.”

Shao Jingmo was focused on eating breakfast and did not look at anyone.

When he heard Lin Xingruo call him, he only nodded and did not look up. Lin Xingruo said, “Sister Qiao Qiao doesn’t seem to be feeling well. She wants to take a day off. Little Uncle, you’re in charge of the company. Can you give Sister Qiao Qiao a leave?”

At this moment, Mother Qiao also said, “Jingmo, she’s not feeling well. Why don’t we let her rest at home for a day today?”

Shao Jingmo put down his cutlery and wiped his mouth with a napkin. “If the employees need to take leave, they need to look for their direct superiors, not me. Just go through the process.”

With that, Shao Jingmo stood up and left. Mother Qiao’s expression changed. “Jingmo!

However, Shao Jingmo ignored her and walked far away. Even Lin Xingruo was a little surprised. “Is Little Uncle in a bad mood?”

Qiao Qiao suddenly stood up.

Mother Qiao looked at her daughter, who was in a daze. “You don’t have to go to the company.”

“l didn’t ask for leave from my direct superior. I still have to go,” Qiao Qiao smiled bitterly and turned to Mother Qiao. “Mom, I’ll go to the company first.”

“You haven’t finished your breakfast,” Mother Qiao shouted.

Qiao Qiao said, “I’ll go to the cafe downstairs to buy it.”

Lin Xingruo watched Qiao Qiao walk away with a curious expression. “Did Sister Qiao Qiao and Little Uncle fall out? Why do both of them look so bad?”

Mother Qiao smiled faintly. “Guigui’s like this when she’s uncomfortable. As for Jingmo, he’s always like this.”

Lin Xingruo couldn’t disagree. “I think so.”

Qiao Qiao thought that by the time she came out, Shao Jingmo’s car would have driven away and he wouldn’t be waiting for her. When she came out and saw that the car was still parked, she quickly ran over. She did not get into the car directly like before. This time, she asked outside the car, “Little Uncle, can I take this car?”

Shao Jingmo was looking down at his cell phone. When he heard her question, he replied, “Yes.”

Qiao Qiao opened the car door and got in. She said to the chauffeur, “Drive,”

A few minutes later, the car pulled out of the villa and drove steadily down the wide avenue. Qiao Qiao wanted to talk to him, but every time she turned around and saw his cold and distant side profile, she swallowed her words.

When she finally mustered the courage to speak, Shao Jingmo put away his cell phone and suddenly said, “In three days, the grudge between your Qiao family and the Bai family will be completely resolved..”
