The two of them wiped off their sweat before they greeted Xie Limo respectfully, “Young Master Xie, it will be done soon. It’s truly our fault. Please forgive us.”
Both Xie Limo and Yun Bixue did not bother giving them a reply.
The two of them started to plead in all ways, trying to portray themselves as pitiful people.
Yun Bixue looked at Li Sanliang’s greasy face before she pursed her lips. How much has this person sucked out from common folks? How could he be pitiful? Hmph!
When the dishes were done, Xie Limo and Yun Bixue left without saying anything.
Li Sanliang and Zhu Liang, who were left behind, glanced at each other. They wanted to cry, but no tears came.
“Brother-in-law, what should we do?”
Li Sanliang’s slap landed on Zhu Liang’s face. “All you know is to create trouble for me! Look at what you’ve done! I won’t bother with your matters in the future.”
“Brother-in-law, how could you slap me?”
“If not, what else can I do? I lost all my face today.” Indeed, today would be the death of him.
Zhu Liang cradled his swollen face in one hand. “Brother-in-law, can you blame me? It’s not easy to earn money, and it’s all used by you to bribe people.” This person was Li Sanliang’s wife’s younger brother, and they were in cahoots for personal gains.
Li Sanliang could not vent his anger in another way, so another slap landed on Zhu Liang’s face. “You dare talk back at me? You think it’s unfair with that pocket change of yours? If it weren’t for me, your restaurant would not be operating! Ungrateful bastard!”
“Brother-in-law, when you had nothing, my elder sister chose to follow you, but the person just now said that she committed suicide because of you.”
“And you believe him? He’s just trying to drive a wedge between us.”
Friction sparked, and they started to fight.
Meanwhile, the couple left for home, with Yun Bixue’s arm hooked around Xie Limo’s.
“Limo, we don’t have to cook tonight. We can eat after heating up these dishes.”
Xie Limo’s looked at her warmly. “You’re more cheerful now that we left.”
Yun Bixue rubbed her face with her other hand. “Well, it’s hard to be happy in that horrid and wicked atmosphere.”
“We will cook at home next time.”
“We still have to eat outside, but I guess we can bring lunch boxes. I’m scared that you will exhaust yourself.”
“It’s no problem.”
The two of them strolled around. Upon seeing a familiar lady, Yun Bixue paused in her steps. She said to Xie Limo, “Look, isn’t that Yuan Shuangrui from the Yuan family?”
“Yes. This is Tian Jing City’s First District. The first district is at the center of the city, so you will be able to see many people from major noble families on the streets.”
Yun Bixue looked carefully. The man who was driving Yuan Shuangrui did not look like An Yexuan. She asked curiously, “Who’s that man? Isn’t she together with An Yexuan?”
Xie Limo explained, “The Yuan and An families are related. That’s Yuan Shuangrui’s fiancé, someone from the Han family.”
“Their relationships are so complicated. I tried remembering it a few times, but there are still many people from major noble families who I cannot remember.” Yun Bixue looked at Xie Limo before she continued, “When you said Li Sanliang’s information earlier, I was shocked.”
“Before coming to Tian Jing City, I have to prepare for everything, so I looked through the basic information of all the government officials here.”
“You remembered it after looking through it once?” Yun Bixue was impressed. Although she could remember things after reading it once, that applied only to knowledge and books. For people, it was easy for her to mix them up.
After bringing the dishes back to their condo, the two were discussing whether to go to the supermarket to get some vegetables and fruits.
Xie Limo noticed Yun Bixue’s tired face and said, “If you’re tired, I can just get Xie Jiu to buy them.”
“I don’t know what vegetables I want to buy either. Let’s go and take a look. Once we see it, we will know what to get.”
