Xie Limo went to wash his hands first before going to the bedroom. He took off his coat and changed into his casual clothes. After that, he headed straight to the kitchen to cook dinner.
Yun Bixue also followed him into the kitchen and asked, “Limo, I saw the news today. Romantic Couple Restaurant had been closed down. Was this one of the first major changes you made after assuming office?”
Xie Limo placed the vegetables on the cutting board and started to cut them elegantly. He replied, “It is indeed the first. As for Li Sanliang, I have already gathered enough evidence to drag him behind bars.”
“That one wasn’t on the news, though.”
Xie Limo’s hands were very nimble. He had cut and placed the vegetables on the plate in no time. “You will see it tomorrow when you watch the news.”
Seeing how Xie Limo was busy cooking dinner, Yun Bixue said in a gentle voice, “Limo, you didn’t even take a proper look at me when you came home!”
She had been bored for the whole day. That was why she had been looking forward to him coming home. Of course, she also wanted to have a romantic moment with him first.
Hearing the slightly reproachful tone in his wife’s voice, Xie Limo paused in his movements before placing the knife back in place. He turned and stretched out his hands as he said, “Come here.”
Yun Bixue smiled as she walked up to Xie Limo and hugged him.
Xie Limo lowered his head and planted a kiss on her forehead as he said softly, “I miss you too. That’s why I wanted to cook faster so that I can keep my wife company as soon as possible.”
“To tell you the truth, Limo, my heart would always be on tenterhooks every time I’m waiting for you to come home.”
Xie Limo was stunned for a moment. He did not think that she would worry so much about him. He comforted her and said, “I’m just at work. Nothing will happen to me, alright?”
“I’ve been watching the news and the situation in the capital these past few days. Things are not so simple. There have been waves of disturbance rolling beneath the surface since a long time ago, so I’m worried.” Perhaps she was anxious because there was nothing she could help him with.
Xie Limo thought deeply for a while. He felt that he should not let his wife stay at home all the time. He was worried that she would think too much about things. It was better for her to find some things to do.
“The two secret guards from the headquarters will be coming here tomorrow. Don’t you want to enter the entertainment industry? All the licenses that need to be registered for the branch company here have been settled. Once they arrive, they will accompany you to run your film and media company. How’s that?”
The moment she heard this, Yun Bixue perked up. Her eyes shone brightly as she replied, “Okay.”
It was best if she had things to do. That would make her feel that she was working hard together with her husband, rather than hiding behind his back.
She wanted to fly beside him, rather than being an indoor flower.
Once they were done eating, Yun Bixue languidly sat down on the sofa.
Xie Limo sat beside Yun Bixue and conveniently rested her head on his lap, using it as her pillow.
“Seeing how you’re like this, is it because you feel bored at home?”
“Staying alone at home is really boring. I always think about what you would be doing at the Ministry of State Affairs. To better understand your work environment, I would watch the news. After that, I will wait for you to come home. I feel like I have no energy at all.”
“It’s my fault. I shouldn’t coop you up at home!”
“It’s not your fault. If I wanted to go out, you wouldn’t know, would you? Many people have already caught wind of the incident that day at the restaurant. I just want to keep a low profile for now.” Yun Bixue knew that An Yexuan would definitely know that she had arrived in the capital. She had not thought of how she would deal with the An family yet.
Xie Limo listened quietly to Yun Bixue’s rant.
It would be a lie to say that he was not tired from work. However, he looked forward to going home every day. Whenever he saw her and hear her voice, it gave him a warm feeling, which instantly washed away his tiredness.
When she was almost done talking, Yun Bixue got up from Xie Limo’s lap and stared at him as she said, “Limo, you haven’t explained. Why do you not want to have children soon?”
