94 Out of Control, Madness

Li Xiwu rarely spoke without thinking. Her professionalism controlled her words and actions outside, but she could not control her words and actions in front of Pei Jingzhou. Only when she said it did she regret it. However, she had already said it. It seemed that she could not take it back.

Pei Jingzhou smiled meaningfully. “I didn’t hear you clearly. Why don’t you say it again?” Li Xiwu pursed her lips and turned to leave. Pei Jingzhou smiled and pulled her back. “I heard you clearly.”

Li Xiwu: “…”

She did not intend to continue the conversation. If she was in the live-stream, the netizens might have finished with a few lines of “Ahhh”. However, she did not know what subtitles would be added after the cameraman recorded and edited it.

Pei Jingzhou took the macaron from her hand. Li Xiwu reminded her, “It’s too sweet for your taste.”

Pei Jingzhou took a bite and commented meaningfully, “Yes, it’s indeed not as sweet as my wife.”

Li Xiwu: “…” Cameraman, please turn the camera. Thank you!

At this moment, the other guests had already returned upstairs to rest. Currently, only Xie Wen and Chi Xu were still outside the inn. Li Xiwu remembered that Xie Wen and Chi Xu were already outside the inn at around eight-thirty when she and Pei Jingzhou returned. She was still a little worried after thinking about it. She raised her feet and prepared to go outside.

Pei Jingzhou suddenly said, “There won’t be any scenes of me tomorrow. Aren’t you going to accompany me more?”

Li Xiwu paused. “I—”

There were indeed no scenes of Pei Jingzhou tomorrow. Originally, the three of them were supposed to go out to play today, but because of Zheng Yuehua’s incident, the director had temporarily arranged a date between the two of them. Now that the date was over, their husbands would leave after breakfast tomorrow morning.

Did Pei Jingzhou need her company? While Li Xiwu was hesitating, Pei Jingzhou said, “Come back early. I’ll warm the bed for you.”

Li Xiwu had an idea. “Okay.”

Pei Jingzhou went upstairs first. Most of the staff had already gone to rest. Only two cameramen stood beside the camera. Li Xiwu stepped out of the inn threshold. Forty to fifty meters away from the searchlight, Xie Wen and Chi Xu were still there. She walked down the stairs and walked over.

“Xie Wen,” Li Xiwu shouted as she walked over.

Xie Wen turned around and saw Li Xiwu walking over. “Miss Li, why are you out?”

Li Xiwu glanced at Chi Xu and looked at Xie Wen. “It’s quite cold outside. Why did you stay outside for so long?”

Xie Wen smiled and replied, “I’m fine. It’s not that cold.”

Li Xiwu did not speak. She held Xie Wen’s hand in silence. After a moment, she said, “You’re so cold and you still say you’re not cold? Is your body more resistant to the cold than before?”

Xie Wen smiled bitterly. “…I actually don’t feel anything myself.”

Li Xiwu let go of Xie Wen’s hand. “That’s because you’re numb from the cold.” With that, Li Xiwu looked at Chi Xu. “It’s only about ten degrees at night in late autumn. What are you thinking?”

That didn’t sound polite.

Chi Xu pursed his lips. “What does what I think have to do with Miss Li?”

“Miss Li!” As Chi Xu finished speaking, Xie Wen immediately shouted. Li Xiwu glanced sideways at Xie Wen. Xie Wen explained, “My mother-in-law is not in a good mood. I wanted to bring Shenshen outside for a while. Chi Xu has been accompanying me.”

Li Xiwu sucked in her breath. “She caused her own bad mood. What has it got to do with you?”

Xie Wen wanted to say something and send Li Xiwu a distress signal, but in the end, she pursed her lips and remained silent.

Li Xiwu looked up at Chi Xu. “Xie Wen is very afraid of the cold. Didn’t you know?”

Chi Xu was expressionless. “I know.”

Li Xiwu chuckled. “I hope you really know.”

It was so cold outside, so what other reason could Xie Wen have waited until now? Before Li Xiwu came out, it was not that Xie Wen had not thought of snatching her daughter back from Chi Xu’s arms. It was too cold. She could freeze, but Shenshen was still young. What if she caught a cold?!

But when she was about to do so, Chi Xu looked at her sadly. “Why did you do that?”

Xie Wen shook her head with an ugly expression. “Mom’s matter was an accident. I didn’t do anything.”

Chi Xu asked her, “Do you have plans? Do you want to divorce me? Wenwen, do you want to leave me?”

Xie Wen shook her head silently.

Chi Xu asked again, “You said that you would never leave me. Are you going to go back on your word?”

Xie Wen still shook her head silently.

Chi Xu’s expression became even sadder than before. “Don’t try to leave me. You know that without you and my daughter, there’s no point in me living.”

At that moment, the air froze. The pressure was like a thousand-pound switch pressing down on Xie Wen, making her almost unable to breathe. She was so cold that her entire body was numb. For a frustrated moment, she thought that she might as well freeze to death here.

Everything would be over once she’s dead.

However, when they saw their daughter sleeping soundly, she stopped thinking about death. She gritted her teeth, endured, and waited. The stalemate lasted for more than an hour.

Just as she was about to collapse, Li Xiwu came over. But she was too cowardly to ask for help.

Li Xiwu saw that Xie Wen’s face was filled with helplessness. She pulled Xie Wen behind her and reached out. “Chi Xu, give me Shenshen.”

Chi Xu was unmoved.

Li Xiwu’s tone was calm. “It’s too cold. Do you want to see Shenshen, who’s only a few months old, hospitalized with a cold? As far as I know, if a child as young as Shenshen has a cold infusion, the IV needle has to be inserted through the vein in her scalp.”

When Xie Wen heard this, her heart tightened. In the months since she gave birth, Shenshen had been in good health and had never been hospitalized with a cold. Her heart would ache to death if she saw the slender needle poke through the scalp vein with her own eyes.

At this moment, Xie Wen looked at Chi Xu nervously. Probably because Li Xiwu’s words had some effect, Chi Xu finally gave Shenshen to Li Xiwu. The little fellow was wearing thick clothes and did not seem to be cold. She was sleeping soundly and showed no signs of waking up even if someone else carried her.

The moment she saw Shenshen in Li Xiwu’s arms, Xie Wen heaved a sigh of relief. Li Xiwu turned around and handed Shenshen to Xie Wen. “It’s too cold. Go in.”

Xie Wen’s eyes turned red with gratitude and she was about to thank her. Li Xiwu interrupted. “Go in first.”

Xie Wen nodded, her voice muffled. “Okay.”

Li Xiwu was about to follow her in when Chi Xu suddenly stopped her. “Miss Li, can we talk for a while?”

Li Xiwu stopped in her tracks, and so did Xie Wen. Li Xiwu gestured to Xie Wen. “Go in first. I’ll talk to Chi Xu and come in soon.” Xie Wen nodded and carried her daughter in first. It was only when Xie Wen entered the inn that Li Xiwu turned to look at Chi Xu. “Tell me, what do you want to talk about?”

At this moment, Xie Wen was not around. Chi Xu questioned her sternly, “What do you want to do?”

Li Xiwu raised an eyebrow. “What do you mean?”

Chi Xu approached step by step, his eyes dark and aghast. “What exactly do you want?”

Chi Xu looked very scary.

Li Xiwu calmed herself down. “Chi Xu, you should understand—”

Before she could finish, the next second—

Chi Xu grabbed Li Xiwu’s neck desperately, his eyes almost popping out. “Just take it that I’m begging you, don’t interfere, okay?”
