Although Yun Bixue’s tone was laid-back, it had a sharp and piercing aura to it, making others break out in a cold sweat.
The service crew was stunned. Throughout these years, non-locals had always been discriminated against in the capital, but nothing serious ever happened. As time went by, they thought themselves to be high and mighty, and that they could look down on them.
However, the series of events today really reversed everything they had previously known. They had yet to recover from the scene that happened before them just now.
Seeing how the service staff were still in a daze, a dangerous glint flashed across Yun Bixue’s clear and beautiful eyes. “Why, you guys don’t want to entertain your customers even though you’re running a restaurant?”
Yun Bixue’s words were evidently powerful. It was so powerful that it implied that they did not want to continue running their restaurant if they did not attend to their customers.
One of the service staff, who was standing right in front, stared at Yun Bixue and stuttered, not knowing what to say. She felt that if she said something wrong, the whole restaurant might very well be destroyed. She believed that the woman before her was very capable of doing it.
“Miss, beautiful customer, I… I’m just a staff working for the restaurant… I don’t know…”
Yun Bixue rested her head on her hand at the counter while knocking on the countertop with her other hand. She said coldly, “You guys served your customers for so many years. You’re telling me today that you don’t know? Ha! Do you think I’m a fool? Huh?”
The service staff immediately waved her hands frantically and answered, “No, no…”
“Then serve the dishes. Charge us according to the prices on the menu!” As she said that, Yun Bixue pointed at the prices listed on the menu.
A few of the service staff exchanged glances. Finally, the manager stood out, wiping his cold sweat as he gathered his courage and replied, “Yes, please wait a while. We will serve the dishes immediately!”
The manager left at once and went into the kitchen. A moment later, the thugs lying on the floor were helped up and escorted away.
Yun Bixue pursed her lips before returning to her seat. She slumped on the table and supported her head with her hands, looking like she did not want to move again.
Xie Limo also returned to his seat and sat down. He gently caressed Yun Bixue’s hair and asked, “Are you tired?”
Yun Bixue nodded. “Yeah, fighting and being angry is physically taxing as well.”
Xie Limo could not help breaking into laughter.
“Is it that funny?”
Xie Limo shook his head. “It’s not that it’s funny. It’s you. You had always been uptight in Ning An City, always being so calm and collected. It’s pretty nice that you’re like this now. Just let go of yourself, alright? Do whatever you want to do.”
“In Ning An City, I can do whatever I want, but this is the capital where noble families are everywhere. It’s a place governed by the prestigious and influential. If we let our guard down even just a little, you and I will both be in danger.” She was still very clear about how they had to be careful wherever they went, as long as they were in the capital.”
Seeing Yun Bixue’s expression, Xie Limo said seriously, “I won’t let you any harm come to you.”
Everyone around them stared at them in envy. They were really a pleasing couple to look at. Just the sight of them sitting on the table and talking to each other quietly made them look exceptionally beautiful and harmonious together.
Especially when the sunlight shone on them, they became even more eye-catching. Looking at them made one feel as though the sun’s rays were shining right into one’s heart, warming it up fuzzily.
The two of them were as stunning as light, emitting a warm glow wherever they went.
After saying a few words to Xie Limo, Yun Bixue’s stomach started rumbling.
Xie Limo knew she was hungry the moment he heard this sound. He sighed and said, “I shouldn’t have brought you here to eat.” They had been here for almost an hour because of the delay from the incident earlier. His heart only ached for making his wife hungry.
Yun Bixue patted her stomach and replied, “I’m fine. We will be able to eat soon.”
Seeing the listless look on Yun Bixue’s face, Xie Limo suggested, “Do you want me to take you somewhere else to eat? Or we can go and buy some groceries, and I’ll cook something for you.”
“We can just eat here. Besides, we’re already in the capital. Sooner or later, we will go out and dine somewhere. We can’t always stay at home and cook. What’s to come will come. We’re only settling it in advance!”
