87 Pei Jingzhou Is Too Provocative

It was not that Li Xiwu had never experienced Pei Jingzhou’s flirting methods. He was good at it. He could always easily control every subtle change in her mood and then control it ruthlessly. Although she always joked that he could read minds, he probably did. He knew her well, better than she knew herself.

Li Xiwu changed her grip on the fishing rod. “I want to eat grilled fish. Are you confident, Fourth Brother?”

Pei Jingzhou pressed his cheek against Li Xiwu’s. “I have to be.”

Li Xiwu’s eyes lit up. “Then it’s up to Fourth Brother.”

Pei Jingzhou chuckled. “Okay.”

[I’m too intoxicated by the extreme flirting.]

[The key is that they’re still a real couple! It’s legal flirting! It’s legal!]

[I like to see real couples like this. They’re so exciting.]

[I’m clearly watching a couple’s date, but I actually feel a rush of excitement.]

[This couple’s interaction immediately touched my… er, heart.]

[I really like the style today. It won’t be too much to record for another two days.]


About ten meters away were two people fishing with their heads lowered. Li Xiwu did not go over and disturb the others. She stayed here and found a suitable seat to sit down and watch Pei Jingzhou fish.

Han Pin glanced to the right from the corner of his eye and lowered his voice to ask Pei Qingji, “What should we do?”

Pei Qingji said, “If you ask me, who should I ask?” How could he have expected to catch his son? When he heard from Han Pin that his son and daughter-in-law seemed to be recording a show here, Pei Qingji was speechless when he saw that there was a camera. He could not greet them at all. Otherwise, if he was on camera, wouldn’t Qianye know that he was fishing here?

That wouldn’t do. When the time came, he wouldn’t be able to keep the fishing rod. This was already the 28th fishing rod. From a fishing rod worth more than a million yuan to a fishing rod worth dozens of yuan, who knew what he had experienced in between.

Now that he heard his brother-in-law ask him what to do, Pei Qingji asked, “What can we do? Can we slip away?”

Han Pin said seriously, “I’ll cover for you. You can slip away first.”

Pei Qingji was skeptical. “Why are you so loyal today?”

Han Pin patted his chest. “Are you kidding? I’m your brother-in-law!”

Pei Qingji really believed his brother-in-law. He didn’t even have time to pack his fishing rod. “Keep the tools for me. I’ll wait for you outside. Let’s continue fishing somewhere else.”

Han Pin made an OK gesture. “Just wait for me!”

Pei Qingji suddenly felt that his brother-in-law had done something today! However, this thought was too early. As soon as he got up, he heard his brother-in-law shout, “Old Pei! Where are you going?”

Pei Qingji: “…”

When Han Pin shouted this, his voice was loud and clear. It could be heard from all directions. With Pei Qingji’s bad temper, he almost couldn’t help but kick Han Pin into the water. Since he had been sold, he did not stand on ceremony. He raised his voice and asked, “Professor Han! Why are you so free recently?”

The smug smile on Han Pin’s face gradually disappeared…

They wouldn’t be able to play happily together in the future.

Li Xiwu and Pei Jingzhou were not far away from the lake, so they naturally did not ignore the voices coming from there.

Li Xiwu looked up and recognized Pei Qingji. “Uncle.”

Pei Jingzhou lowered his voice and reminded her, “Wrong name.”

After Pei Jingzhou’s reminder, Li Xiwu realized that this was on camera. If she met her father-in-law but called him uncle, the netizens would probably make all kinds of guesses. She also saw Han Pin and reacted quickly. “It’s Uncle Grapefruit, who owns a big villa in Fu Town.”

This form of address sounded a little funny to Pei Jingzhou. “Uncle Grapefruit?”

Li Xiwu explained, “I was impressed by the grapefruit he sold.”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “Is it so sour that it left a deep impression on you?”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. Could he have been watching the live broadcast?

Pei Jingzhou leaned close to her ear and said, “He’s my uncle.” Li Xiwu was slightly stunned and looked at Pei Jingzhou in confusion. Pei Jingzhou’s expression told her that he was not joking.

Li Xiwu immediately understood. So Uncle Grapefruit hadn’t lied to her that day. In terms of addressing him, she really should have called him uncle, but she’d only been guessing at the time and wasn’t sure. She had seen many relatives of the Pei family, but she had really not seen many of Han Qianye’s relatives. It was not her fault that she could not recognize them that day.

She asked, “Do you want to go over?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I’ll go over and take a look first. I’ll be back soon.”

“Okay.” Li Xiwu thought so too. Pei Jingzhou could just go. She didn’t have to go over. She rarely interacted with the elders of the Pei family. After being married for three years, not only did she not see Han Qianye much, but she also rarely saw Mr. Pei. She had never called him Dad.

She had only heard that Pei Jingzhou’s father was a very powerful person when he was young.

Now that Pei Jingzhou controlled most of the business empire, Pei Qingji was basically in a semi-retired state. Other than going to the company occasionally, he liked to fish to kill time when he was free.

Without Pei Jingzhou, the comments in the live-stream decreased. However, the popularity of watching online did not decrease.

Next, Li Xiwu focused on fishing. She rested her elbows on her thighs and rested her chin on her palms, watching the calm lake ripple from time to time. The lake water was very clear. She could see her own appearance if she looked down.

As soon as Li Xiwu looked down, she saw the reflection of an old lady behind her on the lake. Caught off guard, she seemed to see a face floating up from the water and was undoubtedly shocked.

She turned abruptly. After confirming that the old face did not appear in the water but was really standing behind her, her heartbeat calmed down a little. Her tone was steady as she stood up and nodded politely. “Hello.”

The old lady looked to be in her seventies. She was wearing a long black woolen dress, and her silver hair was covered by a black hat brim. She looked very good. From the old lady’s high nose bridge and deep eye sockets, she should be a foreign old lady.

The old lady was also polite. “Hello.”

Li Xiwu asked casually, “Are you here to watch the fishing?”

The old lady smiled. “Yes.”

This was probably the most elegant and polite old lady Li Xiwu had seen so far. From her every move, she could tell that when she was young, she must have been a white jade pearl in a high pavilion. More than that, the old lady spoke Chinese so well that the accent was barely discernible.

The old lady asked Li Xiwu politely, “May I sit here?”

That folding stool belonged to Pei Jingzhou. However, Pei Jingzhou was not back yet, so Li Xiwu naturally would not refuse. She placed the folding stool properly. “Please sit.”

The old lady said to her, “Thank you.” Then the old lady brushed her skirt and sat down on the folding stool that Li Xiwu had put for her. After straightening her dress, she straightened her back without the slightest hunch. She was very elegant from head to toe. The old lady turned and said, “Don’t worry. I’ll be quiet. I won’t disturb your fishing.”

Li Xiwu sat down. “I’m not a professional fisherman. I just pass the time. It’s not a disturbance.”

The old lady smiled. “May I ask what your surname is?”
