Yun Bixue was groggy at first, but hearing that from Xie Limo, she forced her eyelids open slightly and stretched out her arms from the blanket.
Looking at Yun Bixue, who was acting like this, Xie Limo heaved a sigh of relief inwardly before he chuckled. “What’s the matter?”
Looking at Yun Bixue’s wilful self, Xie Limo’s heart grew incredibly soft. He sat on the bed and leaned down to hug Yun Bixue like a child. It was a hug full of adoration and love.
Xie Limo looked at the person who curled up like a kitten in his embrace before kissing her on the crown of her head.
“Weren’t you tired? You still have energy?”
It was rare to see a Yun Bixue who stuck so closely to him, but precisely because of that, it seemed like a layer of honey coated around his heart.
Yun Bixue smiled and said, “I’m tired, but I can’t bear to sleep. I want to look at you more.”
Xie Limo’s heart was taken down with that blow. He patted Yun Bixue lightly on her back. “Be good and sleep. I will accompany you here.”
“You’ll be going to work tomorrow morning.”
“Yeah. The workplace is near our home, so I’ll be coming back for lunch.”
Yun Bixue yawned, and drops of tears formed around her eyes. She rubbed them while saying, “Then I will prepare the ingredients and wait for you to come back to cook them.”
“Wait for me. Don’t go into the kitchen.”
“Worried that I’ll burn down the kitchen?”
Xie Limo shook his head. “Worried that your clumsy self will hurt yourself.”
“I will take care of myself.”
“I’ve told you before. You’re not allowed in the kitchen. Wait patiently, okay? Don’t go anywhere for the next few days.” He recalled what Yun Bixue said about someone staring at her ever since they arrived at the imperial capital, so he was worried.
“Yeah, I will listen to you this time.” After she spoke, Yun Bixue yawned some more.
Xie Limo tucked her in. “Go ahead and sleep.”
“You said you would explain it to me. When would you explain?”
Xie Limo kissed her on her lips. “When I come back tomorrow afternoon. You don’t have to wake up early. I will put your food in the microwave, so you can heat it once you wake up.”
Because he said he would explain, the oppressive feeling on Yun Bixue’s heart disappeared. She asked, “I will be alone here the whole morning?”
“Yeah. If you’re bored, you can watch some dramas or surf the net. I will arrange for two bodyguards from the headquarters for you.”
Yun Bixue shook her head. “You don’t have to. That’s not good. If the government officials caught wind of it, they would feel like we’re taking actions on our own.”
“They’ll be wearing ordinary clothes, so no one will notice.”
After a few sentences, Yun Bixue fell asleep.
Xie Limo’s heart warmed as he looked at her. He used to work hard for the sake of the Xie family, but now, he worked hard because he wanted to protect her smile.
There were some things that he had to think through before telling her because sometimes, simple things could become complicated when one tried to explain.
But he understood that he could no longer keep it from her. With regards to children, women minded it a lot, right?
In Country E
Zuoqiu Zimei was furious because she could not punish Yun Bilu. Moreover, all the news programs were reporting about the Zuoqiu family.
Even what she did that day was reported. The image that she tried so hard to maintain was as good as gone.
Within a day, rumors about her being petty and wanting to steal another’s boyfriend had already spread amongst the noble families.
Even her name as the most beautiful dancer was gone.
In just a short time, the Zuojiu family changed completely, so she started venting her anger everywhere.
