68 Pei Jingzhou Said, “I Liked Her First.”

How did she have a bad memory? Her work required her to be good at communication, so her memory was naturally not bad. In so long, no one around her had ever said that her memory was bad.

Han Qianye, who was beside him, couldn’t sit still anymore. She suddenly said, “Jingzhou, how can you say that Xiwu has a bad memory? I think Xiwu remembers the sweet past between the two of you the most.”

Han Qianye wanted Li Xiwu to say it. She knew very well that with her son’s EQ, it was impossible for him to say it directly in front of the camera. He had only married Li Xiwu because she looked like his first love. Because he regretted not getting together with his first love, he had found someone who looked like her to comfort his longing.

This was too ridiculous!

However, Li Xiwu was indeed a ‘peripheral’ identity.

Sigh! The more Han Qianye thought about it, the more worried she became. She felt that it was better for Li Xiwu to say it. This way, Li Xiwu could say whatever she wanted and feel better. Han Qianye had yet to realize that she had already begun to think for Li Xiwu in every way. She was unwilling to investigate the change in her heart. She could not bear to see Li Xiwu suffer.

At this moment, Min Hanrong noticed Han Qianye’s expression and asked with a smile, “Qianye, why do you look so pale? Are you feeling unwell?”

Han Qianye immediately hid the emotions on her face. “I just ate a little too much tonight. It’s not easy to digest.”

Min Hanrong thoughtfully handed Han Qianye a glass of fruit juice. “Drink some kiwi juice to help with your digestion.”

Han Qianye said, “Thank you.”

Min Hanrong smiled meaningfully. “Why are you so polite? You looked so pale just now. Those who didn’t know better would think that your son and daughter-in-law were friends who introduced them to each other and got married in a hurry. They didn’t have any experience of knowing each other.”

Han Qianye maintained the smile on her face. “You’re worrying for nothing.”

Min Hanrong had a valid reason. “How can this be called worrying for nothing? This is clearly called concern.”

Everyone was looking at Li Xiwu. She did not dare to look at Pei Jingzhou because Pei Jingzhou’s terrifying aura made people only dare to glance at him briefly.

Li Xiwu smiled brightly. Since Han Qianye had taken the initiative to speak, she was also prepared to let her talk about her ‘acquaintance and love experience’ with Pei Jingzhou. No matter what, she had to finish recording the show safely first.

Just as she was about to compile a story, Pei Jingzhou straightened his posture. “Let me explain.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

Li Xiwu closed her eyes for a moment before giving in. She gritted her teeth and spat out a word. “Okay.”

Just say it!

However, when Pei Jingzhou spoke, there would probably be endless negative controversy about her. Fortunately, she was strong enough in her heart. Just now, she was thinking that she had to finish recording the show to resolve Xie Wen’s matter.

But now, she realized that it didn’t matter if she didn’t finish recording the show. As long as she resolved the matter between Xie Wen and Chi Xu in advance, that would be enough.

In just a few seconds, Li Xiwu thought about a lot of things. At this moment, Pei Jingzhou’s short sentence entered her ears clearly and also into everyone’s ears.

Pei Jingzhou said, “We’re childhood sweethearts.”

The word ‘childhood sweetheart’ surprised everyone. Even Xie Wen, who knew that Li Xiwu and Pei Jingzhou were married, was surprised when she heard this word.

Min Hanrong looked a little embarrassed. Zheng Yuehua looked very surprised. Tao Jing and Xu Muzhen looked envious. Xu Muzhen even exclaimed, “I didn’t expect Sister Li and Brother-in-law to be childhood sweethearts!!!”

Han Qianye slowly sat up straight, her expression even more solemn than before.

Li Xiwu’s tone was steady. “Yes.” She had been guessing how outstanding Pei Jingzhou’s first love was, but they were childhood sweethearts. It had nothing to do with whether she was outstanding or not. The relationship they had since they were young was precious compared to any relationship.

Xu Muzhen urged kindly, “Brother-in-law, tell me quickly. I’m really looking forward to the things between you and Sister Li.”

Pei Jingzhou glanced sideways at Li Xiwu and saw that her jaw was tightening. He reached over and held Li Xiwu’s hand. “We were childhood sweethearts. I liked her first. I wooed her. We were in the same middle school. I was two years ahead of her. I defeated every love rival she had. I placed every apple in her desk drawer. She fell and hurt her leg at a sports event. I carried her for a month and seven days. Later, her parents had to go overseas for work, so she followed them overseas to live.”

Although it was a simple and straightforward conversation, she could tell that every word was filled with emotion.

Xu Muzhen asked enthusiastically, “Then did you fall in love long-distance?”

Pei Jingzhou tilted his head. “Sort of.”

“Sort of?” This time it was Xie Wen who asked. She was also very curious, especially when she heard from Mr. Pei that he and Miss Li were childhood sweethearts. She remembered hearing from Miss Li in the past that she and Mr. Pei were introduced through blind dates.

Han Qianye, who was beside her with a solemn expression, had the urge to stop her son from continuing. Not to mention Li Xiwu, she could barely listen.

Childhood sweethearts were her son and Little You’s past. Not to mention Li Xiwu’s feelings, even Han Qianye felt a little heart-wrenching when she said his past with Little You in public.

Pei Jingzhou’s tone was calm. “Because every year, I will fly overseas for more than a hundred days to see her.”

The words ‘fly oversea for more than a hundred days to see her’ were enough to shock people. How strong must one’s willpower and perseverance be to persevere? Long-distance relationships were the most testing!

Tao Jing couldn’t help but sigh. “Many people ended up breaking up because of long-distance love. When they remember it, it will be filled with regret.”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “No regrets.” It was a very firm statement. Pei Jingzhou glanced sideways and looked at Li Xiwu with a gentle and firm expression. “Later, she returned to my side and we got married.”

[Help! They’re really childhood sweethearts!]

[The key is that they’ve been childhood sweethearts for so many years and nothing has ever happened!]

[About the day when the romance novel was reflected in reality but not completely in reality. After the male lead in the novel left the country, he turned around and met a new female lead, causing his first love to become the one who interfered. I’m so envious of Li Xiwu and her husband’s love run!]

[He flew overseas for more than a hundred days every year! Who’s envious?]

[Back when I was in a long-distance relationship with my ex-boyfriend, I only saw him two or three times a year. Then we broke up, so he was an ex-boyfriend.]

[The stories came from other people’s mouths. One was overseas and the other was in the country. Who knows if the two of them had changed their minds? Later, they realized that childhood sweethearts were still suitable. In the end, they got together again.]

[What’s wrong with someone’s speech? Is she allergic to romance?]
