Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations

“You have to go!”


Then a voice came from outside the door. Before Lin Yourong could turn around, she heard the butler say, “Young Master is back.”

Zhou Qing walked in and slowly walked up to Zhou Maoyi. He looked at Lin

Yourong, whose face was red and swollen. “Mom, you have to go to the Zhou

Corporation’s press conference tomorrow.”

Lin Yourong looked at her son’s attitude. “You know too?”

Zhou Qing’s voice was calm. “I did, but I found out too late.”

Without the anger she had expected, Lin Yourong felt a little relieved. “That woman shouldn’t have entered our Zhou family in the first place. Ah Qing, fortunately, you weren’t soft-hearted back then.”

Zhou Qing said word by word, “I regret not being soft-hearted back then.”

Lin Yourong said angrily, “How is that Gao Sisi worthy of you!”

Zhou Qing calmly asked, “Then how were you worthy of Dad back then?” Lin Yourong was instantly speechless. Zhou Maoyi snorted coldly.

Zhou Qing did not say anything else and turned to leave. As soon as he came out, the butler went forward and asked, “Young Master, you’ve just returned. Why are you leaving again?”

Zhou Qing’s eyes darkened, and there was no light in his eyes. “To do what needs to be done, although… it’s already too late.”

Soon, Zhou Qing’s figure disappeared into the night.

After his son, Zhou Qing, left, Zhou Maoyi was about to leave when Lin

Yourong stopped him. “Old Zhou, where are you going?”

Zhou Maoyi coldly pried Lin Yourong’s hands away and walked out with a cold expression. “Reflect on yourself and prepare yourself to attend tomorrow’s press conference. If you embarrass me again, get out of the Zhou family.” Lin Yourong was stunned.

After being slapped just now, Lin Yourong’s face became even more red and swollen. Now she felt numb all over.

Watching her son and husband leave one after another, Lin Yourong threw things crazily—

At this moment,

Li Xiwu and Pei Jingzhou had already arrived at the hotel.

The location of this hotel was about a kilometer away from the hotel booked by the production team. It was not far.

The specifications of the suite were according to Pei Jingzhou’s usual travel plans. The room was much larger than the room arranged by the production team. There was also a hot spring and an audiovisual room.

Pei Jingzhou took off Li Xiwu’s jacket and placed it on the chair at the end of the bed. “Look, do you like this place?”

Li Xiwu had been scanning the room quickly since she entered. “More or less.”

Pei Jingzhou laughed and walked to her side. “What do you mean, more or less?”

Li Xiwu looked up at him. “The hotels are all the same. There’s not much difference. That hotel had a hot spring too, but there’s no audio-visual room.

Oh, and there’s no gym.”

Pei Jingzhou held her hand and walked out. Li Xiwu followed obediently.

Outside was a courtyard-style hot spring. The hot spring had been prepared in advance. At this moment, fog curled around it, and faint heat mixed with the smell of iron assaulted her face.

Her eyes lit up.

Because this hotel was very high up, it was already late at night. When she looked up, she could see the waning lights in the distant mountains and the entire mountain range. Li Xiwu knew that it would be beautiful to admire the night scenery of North Water Town here, but she did not expect it to be so beautiful that she could barely look away.

After looking at it for a long time, she looked away in satisfaction. When she heard footsteps behind her, she thought that Pei Jingzhou had come to call her.

She turned around.

The moment she saw Pei Jingzhou, Li Xiwu’s expression froze.

Did she look at the night scenery for a long time just now? Why were Pei Jingzhou’s clothes gone the moment she turned around?

Not only were the clothes on his upper body gone, but the pants on his lower body were also… gone. There was only a towel around him, revealing his well-defined abs.

Li Xiwu said, “You..

Pei Jingzhou walked towards her. “To soak in the hot spring.”

Li Xiwu was surprised. “Now?”

Pei Jingzhou pulled her towards the hot spring. “Of course. Or should I wait till late at night? You wouldn’t have the strength to get up and soak in the hot spring late at night.”

Li Xiwu: ‘

A few minutes later, Li Xiwu entered the hot spring with Pei Jingzhou beside her.

The 40-degree water temperature was just right. Her entire body was hot, and her pores opened bit by bit, absorbing the effect of the iron hot spring. Mist lingered in front of her. Li Xiwu could not see Pei Jingzhou’s expression too clearly. She leaned forward a little and closed the distance between them. Recalling what Pei Jingzhou had told her in the car, her interaction with Yu


“Fourth Brother,” she called softly.

Pei Jingzhou’s gaze was on her. Even through the lingering fog, he kept looking at her. “What else do you want to ask?”

Li Xiwu smiled brightly. “I haven’t even asked. How can Fourth Brother be sure what I want to ask?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “You forgot that I can read your mind.”

Li Xiwu raised her eyebrows. “That’s true. I almost forgot that Fourth Brother can read my mind.”

In the water, Pei Jingzhou’s hand lingered on her waist. “If you have any thoughts, you can tell me.”

Li Xiwu pursed her lips. “I originally planned to officially ask for a divorce after the variety show ended.”

The hand lingering on Li Xiwu’s waist paused for a moment, then became even more wanton.

Actually, Pei Jingzhou knew everything, including the 400 million yuan. However, when he heard Li Xiwu say it again, his heart inevitably skipped a beat. He asked her, “What about now?”

Li Xiwu threw him a sentence. “I haven’t thought about it yet.”

Pei Jingzhou leaned over. “Do you want me to help you think about it?”

Li Xiwu raised her hand to his chest. “Fourth Brother has done a lot for me.

Her gestures could not resist Pei Jingzhou. In a few moves, Pei Jingzhou dismantled her and got closer and closer to her. “So, after all I’ve done for you, how do you plan to repay me?”


“Yes, repayment.”

“What kind of repayment does Fourth Brother want?” “Then what kind of repayment are you willing to give me?” “We’ll talk about repayment later.” Li Xiwu looked up and smiled. “Thank you, Fourth Brother, for coming out personally tonight. To be honest, I saw the relief in Gao Sisi’s eyes that had been suppressed for so long. I’m a little touched.”

Pei Jingzhou could always tell what she was thinking at a glance. “Zhou Qing could divorce Gao Sisi because of Lin Yourong’s instigation. Are you wondering what I would do if this happened to us?”

Li Xiwu’s eyelids fluttered. She wanted to know Pei Jingzhou’s attitude. She didn’t care so much before, but now that she suddenly wanted to know, she hesitated and didn’t ask. She didn’t expect Pei Jingzhou to see through her and say it directly.

Since he said it, she didn’t deny it. She nodded.

Pei Jingzhou said, “I won’t do anything.”

Li Xiwu smiled and asked, “Why?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “Because I won’t let that happen.”

Li Xiwu did not believe this. “If Fourth Brother doesn’t want such a thing to happen, you should have forcefully removed me from the variety show from the beginning.”

Not letting her on a variety show was the best way to avoid conflict.

Pei Jingzhou’s answer to her was, “You’re my wife. I can’t dissuade you, so I can only indulge you. What else can I do? Tie you up and bring you back to watch you at home every day?”

Li Xiwu smiled brightly. As she smiled, Pei Jingzhou turned around in the hot spring and placed his arm on the edge of the hot spring.

His body came up behind her. “I know what I’m doing.”

Li Xiwu knew very well what he was going to do when he suddenly changed his posture. She gritted her teeth slightly. “I’m not done talking. Although I know about my interaction with Yu Hewei, I still want to know if my current name was something you thought of casually back then. Also, you… Ah…”

She was pulled forward.

The water in the hot spring rippled..
