Chapter 393: How Can It Compare to Twenty Years of Childhood Friendship?

Translator: Henyee Translations       Editor: Henyee Translations

The smile on a person’s face was enough to prove how happy he was. Li Xiwu looked at the smile on Qi Jiangchi’s face and was quite happy. “President Qi, since the company is about to be listed, then next…”

Li Xiwu was interrupted by Qi Jiangchi. “Rest well from now on. Other than the morning meeting, you can make arrangements for the morning and afternoon yourself.”

Li Xiwu was stunned.

Qi Jiangchi asked, “Are you worried that no one will care about Xue Jinzhu?” Li Xiwu had yet to react. “I’m…”

“I know, I know.” Qi Jiangchi gave Li Xiwu a reassuring look. “You don’t have to worry about Xue Jinzhu. She’s your artist, so I naturally won’t hand her over to others to take care of. Don’t worry, I’ll watch over Xue Jinzhu personally.”

It was probably because Qi Jiangchi was in an especially good mood today. He said a lot more. Especially just now, Li Xiwu could not interrupt him many times. It was not until Qi Jiangchi finished speaking that Li Xiwu had a chance to ask, “So you’ve arranged everything for me?

Qi Jiangchi gave Li Xiwu a reassuring expression. “I didn’t arrange it for you. President Pei arranged it for me clearly. No phenomenal popular drama has urged the company to go public. I still have to work hard for a long time to do it. As soon as President Pei made a move, I flew to the cosmic space station on a rocket.”

At this point, Qi Jiangchi’s expression looked much more smug. “I haven’t told my father about such a big matter yet. If my father knew, he could start writing the family tree from me.”

This was a slightly exaggerated joke.

Li Xiwu echoed, “Then you’ll directly become a new ancestor.”

Qi Jiangchi couldn’t stop smiling.

Seeing Qi Jiangchi smile so happily, Li Xiwu was also happy. Although Pei Jingzhou was the one who spent the money, Li Xiwu still owed Qi Jiangchi a favor. “Thank you.”

Qi Jiangchi’s smile faded a little. “I don’t like to hear this.”

Li Xiwu smiled faintly. “Alright, I’m not going to say it anymore.”

Qi Jiangchi’s smile returned. “What do you want to do now? Go ahead and do it. I won’t do anything directly to Xue Jinzhu’s arrangements. I’ll tell you in advance. Don’t worry.”

Li Xiwu nodded. “Okay.”

After coming out of the meeting room, Li Xiwu returned to the office downstairs.

Yuanyuan was beside Xue Jinzhu. After Li Xiwu finished dealing with her matters, she left the company to meet the psychotherapist who had arrived on time.

On the other side.

After Pei Jingzhou sent Youyou to kindergarten, he did not go to the company. Instead, he went to see Gu Lanshi. Chen Xin was the one who handled the transfer of Youyou’s identity. Not only did Pei Jingzhou not appear, but Gu

Lanshi also handed these matters to his assistant.

In the tea pavilion, the two men sat facing each other.

Gu Lanshi held the tea needle in his hand and fiddled with the cinnamon in front of him. “I thought you wouldn’t see me after Youyou’s transfer procedures were completed.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “That was my original plan.”

The corners of Gu Lanshi’s lips twitched. He placed the cinnamon that had been opened with a tea needle into the cover bowl and poured boiling water. He poured it into the tea plate the first time and into the purple clay pot the second time.

He was skilled in every move. It was obvious that he drank tea a lot. After pouring tea into the teacup in front of Pei Jingzhou, Gu Lanshi said, “Do you Imow why I specially ordered the Tiger Roaring Rock?”

Pei Jingzhou picked up the teacup in front of him and smelled the fragrance.

“She likes it.”

Gu Lanshi looked up in surprise. “I thought you didn’t know.”

Pei Jingzhou’s voice was cold. “What makes you think so?”

Gu Lanshi choked. “That’s true. How can the time I spent with Little You compare to the time you were childhood sweethearts for twenty years?

Gu Lanshi said this with some realization. It couldn’t completely be said that he had put it down. Only he knew that he couldn’t put it down, but he couldn’t hold it either. Back then, he could not change Pei Jingzhou’s status in Li You’s eyes. Four years later, he still could not do it.

“Friends can still be friends.” Gu Lanshi picked up his cup of tea and sniffed it. “If I can’t even be friends, how regretful will that be? That’s why it’s only friends.” With that, he took a sip of tea and vented the pent-up frustration in his chest.

Pei Jingzhou did not drink it. He put down his teacup. “You took care of Youyou for three years. Logically speaking, I should thank you.”

Gu Lanshi played with the teacup in his hand and smiled casually. “To be able to make President Pei thank me, I’ve gained face here.”

In the past, Pei Jingzhou would not even look at Gu Lanshi. However, Youyou had been raised by Gu Lanshi. In the past four years, not only had Youyou grown up well, but she also had a good personality. It was enough to show that Gu Lanshi had taken good care of Youyou.

Of course, personality also had a lot to do with her nature. However, it was a fact that Youyou was in good health. Therefore, Pei Jingzhou was very patient and did not look cold. “There’s something I want to confirm with you.”

Gu Lanshi raised his eyebrows. “Go ahead.”

Pei Jingzhou asked, “Did Li You get pregnant behind my back to save her mother?”

Gu Lanshi lowered his eyes and did not answer immediately. He seemed to be thinking about whether to answer this question. Pei Jingzhou did not rush him. He waited patiently for Gu Lanshi to finish thinking and decided not to say it.

Pei Jingzhou was very patient. He waited for three to five minutes.

Gu Lanshi poured the tea in the purple clay pot and made a new pot. He poured himself another cup and slowly savored it. He seemed to be testing Pei

Jingzhou’s patience, but to Gu Lanshi, he had just not thought it through.

The two of them drink their tea quietly for a while without saying anything After a while, Pei Jingzhou spoke first. “She didn’t tell me. It’s not that she doesn’t believe me, nor is she afraid that I’ll be angry that she’ll gamble with the child’s life. She’s afraid that if she loses the child in the end, she won’t be able to face me, so she’s been hiding it from me since she was pregnant.”

Coincidentally, MO Zhu was sick. She needed to recuperate for chemotherapy. Li Xiwu used the excuse of accompanying her mother for chemotherapy to hide it from Pei Jingzhou. If it were any other reason, Pei Jingzhou would definitely not not come to Country T for a few months.

Gu Lanshi said calmly, “You’ve already found out everything you need to know. There’s no need to ask me again.”

“I didn’t find out.” Pei Jingzhou said truthfully, “It’s a guess.”

Gu Lanshi said, “Guess?”

Pei Jingzhou said bluntly, “Madam Di Xin blocked all information back then, so I was kept in the dark for so many years and didn’t know anything.

However, I knew about Madam MO Zhu’s leukemia back then. The appearance of Youyou and the concealment of her pregnancy back then made me guess that Li You planned to use umbilical cord blood to save her mother.”

Gu Lanshi said, “Your guess is right.”

Madam Di Xin’s power had absolute authority in Country T. It was indeed difficult for Pei Jingzhou to find out about the information she had blocked.

However, the reason why Madam Di Xin blocked the information was also a form of protection. If she did not block it, it would be exposed. She could not let those curious people in the outside world guess too much about what Li You had experienced back then..
