70 Sweet Nothings

Pei Jingzhou took off his jacket. He had a white shirt on. His arms were wrapped in cufflinks that stuck to his arms, abstinent and seductive. As the wife who had slept with Pei Jingzhou for three years, how could Li Xiwu not know how good Pei Jingzhou’s figure was?

He worked out all year round and sometimes even pulled her to work out with him. He was really self-disciplined, but one of the disadvantages of such self-discipline for Li Xiwu was that he was too energetic!

Li Xiwu looked away from him and praised with a bright smile, “Fourth Brother’s sweet nothings are very nice.”

Pei Jingzhou’s thin lips curled up. “You think it’s sweet nothings?”

Li Xiwu raised her palm-sized face. “Isn’t it?”

Pei Jingzhou looked into her eyes. “Look at the myriad worlds. The mountains, rivers, the sun, the moon, and the stars. They’re inferior to you in every way.”

Li Xiwu: “?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Listen carefully. This is what sweet nothings is.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

Pei Jingzhou asked her, “Can you tell?”

Li Xiwu said, “That’s tacky.”

“Then I’ll say something extraordinary.” Pei Jingzhou smiled. “I have two wishes: You by my side, and me by your side.”


Li Xiwu did not expect him to continue. And compared to the previous corny sweet nothing, this one sounded even more… corny. She leaned back a little, and there was a smile in her calm eyes. “Fourth Brother not only knows how to say sweet nothings, but you also know how to be romantic.”

Pei Jingzhou turned to look at the night sky. “Then are you into it?”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows. “Me? It’s useless whether I’m into it or not. It’s fine as long as someone is into it. Besides, that person is Fourth Brother’s treasure.”

Pei Jingzhou did not say anything and just looked at the night sky quietly. At this moment, the phone in Li Xiwu’s hand vibrated. She picked it up and saw that it was Qiao Qiao. Just as she was hesitating about whether to pick it up, Pei Jingzhou’s cold voice sounded in her ear. “Answer it. I want to hear how your friend ridiculed me.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. Was he sure that Qiao Qiao was calling to complain about him?

As if reading her mind, he said, “Does your friend not complain about me often?”

Li Xiwu: “…”

Of course, she wouldn’t betray Qiao Qiao. She lowered her head and rejected Qiao Qiao’s call. But the next second, Qiao Qiao called again.

Li Xiwu hung up again. Then, she opened WeChat and sent Qiao Qiao a WeChat message. She was typing when Qiao Qiao called again.

In the past, as long as she hung up, Qiao Qiao would know that it was inconvenient for her to pick up. What happened today? Did something happen to Qiao Qiao? Li Xiwu suddenly became worried. This time, she didn’t hesitate for long before picking up Qiao Qiao’s call.

Qiao Qiao said, “You finally answered the phone!”

Li Xiwu did not avoid Pei Jingzhou and asked worriedly, “Did something happen?”

“What can happen? It’s all because of you. I’m so angry.” Qiao Qiao’s tone was filled with anger, and she was furious. “How could Pei Jingzhou tell his story with his first love as yours with clear conscience? I was really angry when I watched the live broadcast. Where’s his shame?”

Li Xiwu looked up at Pei Jingzhou. Qiao Qiao scolded on the phone while Pei Jingzhou listened expressionlessly. Although it was not on speaker, the surroundings were silent and empty. The voice coming from the receiver was clear. She reminded Qiao Qiao, “Wait a minute…”

It was too late. Qiao Qiao’s mouth was like a flood.

Qiao Qiao continued, “Especially when the comments are all about childhood sweethearts! It’s so sweet and affectionate. The more I look at it, the angrier I get.” Qiao Qiao continued, “I posted: It’s all fake! They’re acting! And that post was gone with a swipe. Millions of viewers are online. My speech is too weak.”

Li Xiwu knew that stopping her was useless. “You called a few times just to complain?” She thought there was something important!

Qiao Qiao’s tone still sounded very angry. “I was just angry and insisted on calling you. I only felt better after complaining. By the way, you seemed to want to stop me from coming just now. Could it be that Pei Jingzhou is beside you?” Why didn’t she have this realization earlier!

Li Xiwu smiled bitterly. “He’s here.”

Qiao Qiao: “…”

Okay. Goodbye.

Qiao Qiao, who had scolded so happily one second, hung up as dejectedly the next.

Smiling, Li Xiwu inhaled and turned to go back. Noticing that Pei Jingzhou had not moved, Li Xiwu shouted, “Fourth Brother.”

Pei Jingzhou turned around and looked at her quietly. Li Xiwu realized that Pei Jingzhou’s pupils were dark and deep, thicker than the night. Li Xiwu asked, “Are you going in?”

Pei Jingzhou turned around. “Let’s go.” He took her hand. His broad and warm palm wrapped around her slender hand. Li Xiwu was used to it. She did not pull her hand away and walked beside him.

If the heart did not move, the faith would not move. She didn’t care, so she wouldn’t resist anything. As she walked, Li Xiwu took the initiative to find a topic. “Did Fourth Brother come today because he saw the live broadcast?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Of course.”

Li Xiwu smiled. “I thought—”

Pei Jingzhou interrupted her. “Don’t always think so. Can’t you inform me first? If you have anything to ask, just ask. As long as you ask, I’ll tell you.”

Of course Li Xiwu wouldn’t ask. The smile on her lips rippled. “I’m called sensible.”

She heard the man beside her snort coldly. “Now you’re saying you’re sensible. Why didn’t you say you were sensible when I couldn’t find you after calling a dozen times?”

Li Xiwu asked, “Fourth Brother, are you still angry about this?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I’m not angry. I’m magnanimous.”

Okay, he was not angry, he was magnanimous. Li Xiwu retracted her hand from Pei Jingzhou’s, but Pei Jingzhou reminded her, “Hold my hand.”

Li Xiwu said, “No.”

“Li Xiwu.”

“None of your business!”

Pei Jingzhou: “…”

Li Xiwu walked very quickly. Pei Jingzhou did not chase after her and slowly walked back. They reached the inn. They went back to their room and closed the door.

Next door.

Han Qianye was still answering Lin Yourong’s call.

On the other end of the line, Lin Yourong said, “What happened tonight was even more exciting than I originally thought. Li Xiwu must be feeling uncomfortable.”

Han Qianye said, “I don’t feel good either.”

Lin Yourong asked, “What’s wrong with you? Isn’t it what you wanted?”

Han Qianye was in a very low mood. “I’m in a bad mood now. Don’t say this. Tell me something to make me happy.”

“That’s a lot.” Lin Yourong mentioned, “You know that I have a little niece, right?”

Han Qianye pouted. “I asked you to say something to make me happy. I didn’t ask you to change the topic so far. Why is it about your niece?”

Lin Yourong said, “Let me finish first.”

Han Qianye nodded. “Okay.”

Lin Yourong continued, “My niece is coming back from Country H in two days. She’s a top designer and a talent that the country is fighting for. She’s also beautiful, especially after learning Country H’s fashion sense and makeup. I plan to wait for her to come back and get her to teach us how to dress up.”

In the past, Han Qianye would definitely be very interested. But now, she was not in the mood at all. “Forget it. I’m recording a variety show. Go learn from your niece yourself.”

Lin Yourong panicked. “It’s so boring for me to learn alone. Don’t worry, I’ll arrange it.”

Han Qianye was just not in the mood, but she was not stupid. She caught herself and sat up. “Are you planning to introduce your niece to my son?”
