71 Poisoned by Li Xiwu

Lin Yourong smiled and said, “Qianye! You finally understand my painstaking efforts.”

What painstaking effort? She was clearly black-hearted! Han Qianye guessed correctly, and her expression was even worse than before. “Let’s talk about it another day, Rongrong. I’m going to sleep. I have to get up at five tomorrow morning.”

“Hey, wait a minute. I’m not done yet…”

Beep, beep, beep…

The busy tone sounded. Han Qianye had hung up first.

Han Qianye threw her phone aside and thought angrily, “I’m worried about keeping my daughter-in-law, but you’re busy introducing me to a new daughter-in-law?”

Rongrong’s niece? Thinking about it, she seemed to have seen her before. She was only so-so. She could not even compare to Li Xiwu’s finger. Hmph!

These thoughts of unconditionally favoring Li Xiwu kept appearing in her mind. Han Qianye was stunned. “Am I poisoned by Li Xiwu?”

The next morning.

The alarm clock began to vibrate frequently at five. Li Xiwu took the phone and turned off the alarm. She was about to get up when an arm came around her waist and pulled her back under the blanket. The blanket was pulled up so that not a breath of wind could enter and wrap her tightly.

Li Xiwu wanted to rub her eyes, but she couldn’t even take her hand out. She said helplessly, “Fourth Brother, I’m getting up.”

A very hoarse voice asked her, “What time is it?”

Li Xiwu said, “Five o’clock.”

She’d set the alarm for five last night. Xiang Lan had to get up at five-thirty for her morning exercise. Although it was indeed a little early, since she had agreed, she had to go. Not only did she not have to be absent, but she also had to try not to be late.

After about half a minute, Pei Jingzhou finally removed his hand from her waist.

Li Xiwu propped herself up on her arm. “Is Fourth Brother going to participate in today’s morning exercise?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “No.”

Li Xiwu said, “Early workouts are good for the body.”

Pei Jingzhou opened his eyes and looked at her. “It’s not appropriate for me to do it here last night. It’s not because I’m not in good health.”

Li Xiwu choked. Nothing happened last night. Initially, she was worried that Pei Jingzhou would insist on doing something at the inn last night. After all, the soundproofing was not that good. If there were any discordant voices, it would be awkward tomorrow morning.

Although they were husband and wife, it was not good. And her worries last night were unnecessary. Pei Jingzhou did not do anything. He did not even let her look at her phone for a few more minutes. After turning off the lights, he tucked her in and hugged her before falling asleep.

Li Xiwu got out of bed and walked, trying to be as light as possible. After washing up, she changed into a lady’s physical suit. She thought that Pei Jingzhou was still asleep, but when she came out, she realized that he had already woken up and was pouring water. As she approached, Pei Jingzhou casually handed her the water he had just poured.

Li Xiwu took it naturally. “Aren’t you going to sleep a little longer?”

Pei Jingzhou watched her finish the water. “I can’t sleep without you around.”

She had finished the water, but Li Xiwu choked on her own saliva. She put the cup back. Pei Jingzhou reached out to take it and poured himself another cup.

Last night, the two of them had slept without chatting. He had not dealt with his work, nor had he let her deal with hers. It was probably because she had gone to bed early. Although she had woken up early, she was in good spirits.

As it concerned today’s live broadcast, Li Xiwu asked before going downstairs, “Is Fourth Brother leaving today?”

Pei Jingzhou raised his eyebrows at her. “Chasing me away?”

Li Xiwu sighed and smiled. “Unfortunately, I don’t have the right.” She raised her hand to look at the wristwatch she’d just put on. It was five-oh-seven. Twenty minutes to five-thirty.

Originally, Tao Jing had casually suggested the morning exercise last night. The director felt that this suggestion was not bad, so he discussed it with Director Gao. Hence, they decided to start the live broadcast at five this morning.

Mother-in-Law Joy’s official Weibo account had also released the post last night. It would start broadcasting at five o’clock and officially broadcast her morning exercise at five-thirty. This time, no one could slip away even if they wanted to.

Li Xiwu took her phone and replied to the WeChat message she hadn’t looked at last night. She even sent Qi Jiangchi a WeChat message. The general content was to trouble Qi Jiangchi to use his right to investigate what had happened during the filming of “Glory of the World” two years ago.

Qi Jiangchi was still asleep at this time, so he naturally wouldn’t reply. Li Xiwu put away her phone and turned to go downstairs. She almost bumped into Pei Jingzhou when she turned around. She consciously moved away and Pei Jingzhou stopped her. “Are you going to investigate that production team?”

Li Xiwu turned around. “You saw it?”

Pei Jingzhou must have seen the WeChat message she sent to Qi Jiangchi. He was standing behind her just now.

Pei Jingzhou turned around and asked her, “What production team? When?”

Li Xiwu was stunned for two to three seconds. Although she did not know why Pei Jingzhou would ask about this, she still answered every question. “The production team of ‘Glory of the World’ two years ago.”

As soon as Li Xiwu finished speaking, Pei Jingzhou picked up his phone and made a call in front of her. After the call was picked up, he said concisely, “Investigate the situation that happened during the filming of ‘Glory of the World’ two years ago. Get the most specific information as soon as possible.”

After giving his instructions, Pei Jingzhou hung up.

Li Xiwu was a little surprised. “You…”

Pei Jingzhou asked, “Am I just for show?” He was clearly the authority. All she had to do was say the word, but she didn’t mention it at all. She did this in silence and didn’t look for him, her husband, even when she looked for her superior.

Li Xiwu lowered her eyes. “Don’t you think I’m being nosy?” Initially, Li Xiwu did not know some details until she heard Chi Xu’s memories last night. These details were connected in her mind. Thinking about it, it was really terrifying.

At that time, her assistant, Yuanyuan, would tell her what had happened to Xie Wen on set. She would find out about it later, but what she found out was not much different from what Yuanyuan had said. Because the matter was too meticulous, it was difficult for people to notice that something was wrong. Even she did not realize it back then.

Now that she connected the dots, she realized that it was not that simple.

Pei Jingzhou looked at her deeply furrowed brows and raised his hand to calm her down. “It’s a little nosy, but that’s what others think.”

Li Xiwu: “?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I don’t think so.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “…Fourth Brother, do you believe me?”

Pei Jingzhou tapped her forehead. “It’s you who don’t believe me.”

Li Xiwu was silent. In this matter with Xie Wen, she was the only one acting. No matter what she said or did, she would definitely not be understood. Others would think that she was being nosy. She was ready to fight alone. Because she couldn’t watch Xie Wen struggle in fire and water without helping her.

However, Pei Jingzhou seemed to be able to hear her thoughts. He knew what she was thinking and what she was planning. He did not care and stood on her side without hesitation. He cooperated with her and helped her investigate.

She looked up at Pei Jingzhou. His eyes were cold at all times and he did not look like someone to be trifled with. Only when he looked at her would his eyes soften unconsciously.

This version of him would give her an uncontrollable illusion.

The illusion that the person Pei Jingzhou loved deeply had always been her.
