In the end, MO Zhu exposed his daughter’s true thoughts. “The person you can’t bear to part with is actually Little Pei, right?”

Li You suddenly felt a lump in her throat. Since her mother had said it outright, she didn’t hide it anymore. “1 can’t bear to leave him,” she admitted frankly.

MO Zhu asked, “Does he know about this?”

Li You nodded. “He knows.’

MO Zhu: “Then what did he say?”

What did he say…

Li You recalled that afternoon. She had mentioned this in front of Pei

Jingzhou, who had only said, “You can go wherever you want.”

It was really just this sentence. There was nothing else. At that time, Li You felt stifled, not because of Pei Jingzhou’s attitude. Even if he treated her coldly, she would not feel stifled. She felt stifled because of her current choice.

However, she did not tell her mother what Pei Jingzhou had said. She only said, “He knew about this, but he didn’t say anything.” MO Zhu said, “1 don’t believe he didn’t say anything.”

Li You was stunned.

MO Zhu gently pinched his daughter’s cheek. “You two are so close. One day, you suddenly told him that you were going overseas to study. Did he really not say a word? Mom doesn’t believe you.”

Li You’s nose turned sour. She threw herself into MO Zhu’s arms and said in a low voice, should stay in the country where he can see me.”

MO Zhu gently held her daughter in her arms and sighed. “Have you thought it through?”

Li You shook her head. “No.”

MO Zhu said gently, “Then think again.”

“But I don’t know how to make a decision.” Li You’s sobs deepened.

MO Zhu gently patted his daughter’s back shoulder. “There are many choices you can make. You can’t make up your mind now. It doesn’t matter. Just think again. ”

After standing outside for a while, MO Zhu led Li You into the living room.

When Guan Suling saw Li You’s current state, she swallowed her words. Her son-in-law had also told her something just now. She no longer tried to force Li You to stay. She would just wait for Li You to make her own decision.

That night, Li You slept with Guan Suling.

Guan Suling patted Li You’s arm gently, just like when she was young. “Good girl, I don’t care if you stay or go abroad. Nothing is more important than your happiness. Don’t be too conflicted. Do what you think.”

Li You nudged Guan Suling. “When I go overseas, Grandma won’t be able to see me all the time.’

Guan Sulings tone was filled with doting. “If you go overseas to study, Grandma can come and accompany you. Country T is too far away. Grandma will definitely stay for a month or two every time I go. I’ll be satisfied.”

Li You replied, “Okay.”

The next day, Li You had specially dressed up before leaving. After graduating from high school, she had spent some time dressing up, although her appearance did not require too much fancy dressing.

She wore a fog-blue knee-length dress and carried the small bag her mother had bought for her on her shoulder. She went to Pei Jingzhou’s school to look for him. She had been here so many times in the past month that Pei Jingzhou’s roommates knew her.

Before she got close, she heard one of her roommates say, “Old Pei, your girlfriend is here,”

To Li You, being called a girlfriend was more or less uncomfortable. Even though she had already taken the initiative to confess to Pei Jingzhou and become his girlfriend on the day the college entrance examination ended.

Pei Jingzhou looked up and saw her outside the laboratory. She was wearing a fog-blue dress that was beautiful and enchanting. She was so beautiful that he could not take his eyes off her. She stood on her tiptoes and waved at him.

Pei Jingzhou threw the book to his roommate. “Help me bring it back.”

His roommate took the book and looked envious. “Old Pei is such a boring person, but he actually found a girlfriend with such a lively personality. They simply complement each other. My girlfriend can’t wait to not contact me 24 hours a day.”

Pei Jingzhou glanced sideways and replied, “Feelings should be maintained from both parties. You can take the initiative to contact each other.”

His roommate sighed. “That won’t do. I have to be steady.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “It’s good that you’re steady. Then you’re not far from being single. ”

His roommate: “…Damn! How can your thirty-six-degree mouth say words that are negative thirty-six degrees! ”

Pei Jingzhou ignored him and walked towards Li You, who was waiting for him at the door. Seeing Pei Jingzhou come out, Li You went forward and held his arm. Pei Jingzhou asked her, “Why didn’t you send me a WeChat message before you came?”

Li You said, “l want to give you a surprise.” Pei Jingzhou said, “It’s indeed a surprise.”

“I’ve thought about it,” Li You suddenly said.

Pei Jingzhou stopped in his tracks and looked at her sideways. “Thought about what?”

Li You stopped and took a few steps forward. She looked at Pei Jingzhou and said, “I’ve thought it through. I’m not going to Country T.”

Last night, with her mother’s counsel and her grandmother’s encouragement, she had thought it through. If she did not leave the country, she would stay at her grandmother’s place. That way, she would not have to be in a long-distance relationship with Pei Jingzhou.

“If I don’t go to Country T and stay in the capital, we won’t be in a long-distance relationship. I can look for you anytime. You can see me anytime.” Li You’s smile was very bright. “Are you very happy?

She was genuinely happy. Therefore, she hurriedly told Pei Jingzhou, hoping that he would be as caring as her. However, to Li You’s surprise, Pei Jingzhou was not as happy as she had expected. After hearing what she said, his face was almost expressionless.

The smile on Li You’s face gradually faded. She did not understand why Pei Jingzhou had such a reaction. “Are you unhappy?

Pei Jingzhou replied softly, “I’m happy.”

Li You let go of his arm. ‘You’re lying. Your expression tells me that you’re not happy at all.”

Pei Jingzhou said, “I’m really happy. I’m not lying to you.”

Li You looked at his calm face. “Then your expression doesn’t look like you’re really happy at all. You looked reluctant.”

“There’s no reluctance. How can I not be happy if you’re willing to stay in the country because of me?” he said softly.

Li You caught the underlying meaning. “Do you have something else to tell

Pei Jingzhou held Li You’s hand and said as they walked, “1 said yesterday that you can go wherever you want. I wasn’t angry.”

Li You nodded.

“Li You,” he called her name.

Li You replied gloomily, “Mm.”

Pei Jingzhou’s unhurried voice landed in her ear. “No matter what, I won’t trap you by my side in any name, unless I have no choice.”

Li You looked up at him. “Why only as a last resort?”

Pei Jingzhou said, “If there’s really such a time, it means that you really need me at this time. There’s no other way, and it’s a last resort. Other than that, I promise you that I won’t trap you by my side in any name.”

Li You said, “But…

Pei Jingzhou said, “Go to Country T and stay by your parents’ side. I’ll be by your side in my own way.”

Li You was stunned. “Your own way?”

At this moment, Li You did not know how Pei Jingzhou would accompany her in his way. His way was actually to take more than 200 days out of 365 days to fly to Country T to see her..
