98 It’s Worth Losing His Life For Li Xiwu

Qiao Qiao was stunned at first. She thought that it was machines that operated and sewed these days. Why would he still step on the sewing machine? When she reacted, she suddenly let out goose laughter. “As expected of you, you’re just too kind!”

Li Xiwu was infected by Qiao Qiao’s laughter and felt much better. “People have to pay the price for what they’ve done. He didn’t just control Xie Wen. The few opportunities he had to get close to her were all crimes.”

Qiao Qiao said, “I understand why you want to help Xie Wen so much. It would be strange if Xie Wen could escape on her own with such a lunatic.”

Li Xiwu sighed. “As long as you understand me.”

After ending her call with Qiao Qiao, Li Xiwu looked out the window in silence. She had spent so much effort on Xie Wen. From the perspective of others, it was probably too nosy. Even she sometimes wondered if she really cared too much.

But every time such a thought appeared in her mind, the scene of her first arrival at Hua Guan Media would subconsciously appear in her mind. As a new manager without any qualifications, no female artist was willing to sign a management contract with her.

Because the risk was too great.

When others signed a capable manager, their acting career would take off. A new manager like her might not be able to help an artist get a decent show for a year or two. At that time, the newcomers who signed into the company fought to sign in with the old manager.

Only Xie Wen took the initiative to find her and asked her carefully and politely, “Can I sign an artist management contract with you?”

At that time, Li Xiwu teased half-jokingly, “Everyone is fighting to find the most stable backer, but you barged into my place. Are you a tiger?”

The short conversation made Xie Wen feel that Li Xiwu was an easy person to get along with. So she was no longer so careful with her words. Instead, she said confidently and generously, “I’m not going to a place with more wolves and less meat. It’s another matter if I’m lucky. If I’m unlucky, not to mention meat, even bone dregs won’t be mine.”

Li Xiwu was stunned for a long time.

Pei Jingzhou did not support her entering the entertainment industry to begin with. He wanted her to be Mrs. Pei, who lived a luxurious life. However, such a life was undoubtedly a canary in a cage to Li Xiwu. She wanted to have her own career. Otherwise, when the contract marriage expired, she would be a useless person who knew nothing.

She begged repeatedly before Pei Jingzhou gave her a chance. However, if she could not make a name for herself in the management industry, she still had to go back and be Mrs. Pei. She was discouraged to think that she might really not make a name for herself.

But at her most discouraged moment, Xie Wen took the initiative to walk towards her. This was undoubtedly the greatest encouragement for her to step into the industry.

Later on, she and Xie Wen encouraged each other and faced difficulties head-on. She tried her best to get resources for Xie Wen. Xie Wen did not disappoint her. She kept shining on the stage and quickly welcomed the peak of her career.

Xie Wen became the female celebrity who had the shortest career, but the fastest to become a B-list celebrity. And because Li Xiwu had promoted Xie Wen, her status in Hua Guan Media had soared. Everyone in the industry had to politely call her Miss Li.

That wasn’t just Xie Wen’s proudest moment in her career. It was also when Li Xiwu was most proud of her career. She had pushed her career to the limit with her own efforts. However, Chi Xu’s appearance later reduced all of this to zero.

Pulling her thoughts back from her memories, Li Xiwu’s eyes flashed. She lowered her head and unlocked her phone. She found Pei Jingzhou’s number and dialed it. It rang five times before the other end picked up.

Li Xiwu took a deep breath. “It’s me.”

Pei Jingzhou’s gentle voice came from the receiver. “Honey.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips and said nothing. She didn’t know how to describe how she felt at this moment. In short, it was complicated. After gathering her emotions, she asked, “Where are you?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “At the company.”

Li Xiwu didn’t believe him, but she didn’t question him. She casually found a topic to chat about. “I don’t even know when you left this morning.”

Pei Jingzhou’s voice was as gentle as ever. “You’re still asleep when I leave at seven.”

Li Xiwu said, “Why didn’t you wake me up?”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “Did my wife miss me?”

Li Xiwu smiled too. “Yes.”

The line went silent with those words.

Li Xiwu barely thought when she answered “Yes.” It was only when the line fell silent that she realized what she had replied.

—Did my wife miss me?


She actually responded with a yes before she realized it. Li Xiwu sucked in her breath. “I—”

Before she could finish, Pei Jingzhou interrupted her. “I miss you too.” There was no humor in his voice. But it was heavier than before and sounded more serious.

With a thought, Li Xiwu gripped her phone and quickly cut to the chase. “Does Fourth Brother know that Chi Xu was in a car accident?”

Pei Jingzhou only grunted in response. He didn’t say that he knew or didn’t know. Li Xiwu wanted to continue this topic, but at this moment, Pei Jingzhou suddenly asked her, “Have you eaten breakfast?”

Li Xiwu knew why he had changed the subject. “I’ve eaten,” she replied.

Pei Jingzhou reminded her, “Drink more water and speak less.”

Li Xiwu immediately held her breath. Her lips were pursed tightly. After a long while, she asked with difficulty, “Is Fourth Brother planning to keep me out of this? You’ll do everything. What will I do?”

Pei Jingzhou pondered for a moment. “Don’t be willful.”

Li Xiwu said, “I’m never willful.”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “I really don’t know what to do with you.”

Li Xiwu asked gently, “Are you hurt?”

She wouldn’t know.

She wouldn’t know that to Pei Jingzhou, it was worth it even if he lost his life all for those words of concern.

Because he didn’t care about anything else. He only cared about her.

When she did not hear Pei Jingzhou’s answer, Li Xiwu became anxious. “Are you still listening? Fourth Brother? Are you alright?”

Pei Jingzhou smiled. “Your husband is fine. I’m fine. Don’t worry.”

When Li Xiwu heard him say that he was fine, although she was still not convinced, her mood was indeed a little better than before. “I’m serious. Don’t fool me.”

Pei Jingzhou’s tone was gentle and unhurried. “Which sentence sounds like I’m fooling you?”

Every word sounded like he was fooling her. Li Xiwu pursed her lips. In the end, she asked again worriedly, “Is Fourth Brother really in the company?”

Pei Jingzhou still replied, “Yes.”

However, Li Xiwu did not know that on the other end of the phone, the doctor was silently bandaging the wound on Pei Jingzhou’s arm.

The shattered windshield drew a twenty-centimeter wound across his arm. It was very deep. Before it was bandaged, his arm was dripping with blood. Blood kept dripping from his palm, making it look especially terrifying.
