Yun Bixue turned and caressed Xie Limo’s face. She bent down and kissed his cheek before hugging him tightly with both arms, as if doing so could give him strength.
She suddenly understood how Xie Limo felt and why he did not want to have children now. Was he scared as well?
Yun Bixue felt guilty and blamed herself. In fact, it was her fault for not being strong enough. If she was strong enough, Xie Limo would not be worried about her.
Sensing his girl’s heartache for him, Xie Limo caressed her back and said, “It’s all in the past. Mother is a very strong woman. Actually, I didn’t know this before. I only knew it when Father told me after I got together with you.”
Yun Bixue felt touched when she heard that. Xie Yaocang was really a very good father.
Xie Limo tightened his hug around Yun Bixue as he said, “Father really loved Mother a lot. He could block off all the external dangers for her. However, there were some things that could not be prevented. If the enemy was so persistent, Father was not a divine god either. As the master of the family, he could not interfere with the affairs of the matron, so that incident was an accident. However, it almost caused Father and Mother to fall apart with each other.”
Yun Bixue was intelligent. She could understand Xie Limo’s heart after all that he had told her. “Limo, I will stay by your side. Father and Mother are living pretty well now. Besides, they have such an outstanding son like you. Those things are all in the past now.”
Yun Bixue was now comforting Xie Limo.
“Ah, Xue, do you know? I’m not dwelling on the past. I’m just afraid that if we have a child in our current situation, I won’t be able to stand having that slim chance around even though I can protect you.”
Hearing the somberness in Xie Limo’s tone, Yun Bixue’s heart clenched as she nodded. “Okay, I understand.”
She felt upset over how she had questioned him previously. She should not have asked him in that tone. At that time, she just felt like asking him if he would like a child since both of them loved each other and loved children as well.
Furthermore, Yun Bixue remembered that Xie Limo had lost a younger sister before, so this made her heart ache even more for him. Compared to her experiences, Xie Limo had indeed experienced much more pain in his life.
Xie Limo caressed her head and kissed her eyes as he said, “You know, if we’re just like any ordinary married couple, I would be very willing to work hard to have a cute and lovely daughter just like you. I think I will spoil her and give her all the best things in the world.”
Yun Bixue nodded and leaned on Xie Limo’s shoulder as she said, “Limo, it’s all my fault.”
“It’s not your fault. I feel like I owe this to you. You love children so much.”
“Having you by my side is enough. Without you around, I won’t be thinking about all these too, right?”
Xie Limo was warmed by Yun Bixue’s intelligence and sensibility. His wife was always so understanding.
Before this, he was still at a loss of how to explain things to her, worried that she would not be able to understand. However, after seeing her reaction when he said it all, he felt that his heart was no longer tensed now.
Xie Limo lifted Yun Bixue’s head and looked into her eyes as he said in a gentle voice, “Do you still remember Su Lenghan’s daughter? That was the first time I carried a baby. She was so cuddly and cute. Do you know what I was thinking about at that time?”
Speaking of that time when Xie Limo carried Yangyang, Yun Bixue also recalled that awkward incident where she misunderstood him because of a photo. Being reminded of that made her incredibly embarrassed.
“What were you thinking of then?”
“I was thinking that if I had a daughter with you who looks like you, I will really give her all the best things in the world. It was then that I understood Su Lenghan’s heart and his love for his daughter.”
