Su Lenghan felt a huge chunk of memories rushing back into his head. These memories that he had chosen to ignore and forget suddenly surged into his mind, and he almost couldn't take it.
"Lenghan, you always call me 'Bixue'. Can't you give me a pet name?"
He recalled how she used to throw childish tantrums occasionally, and he'd detested it. "The others don't know about our relationship yet, so I can't call you like that."
While they were watching television, he recalled how she muttered under her breath, "Some people get called 'Ling-er' and 'Qiu-er'. It sounds nice."
"You're already more than 20 years old, yet you still want such immature names. You'll only be mocked by the others. You have to grow up."
"My university roommates have pet names too."
"We represent the Su and Yun family. We're different."
Reminiscing about the past, Su Lenghan felt a sharp pain through his chest. He realized that he must have treated her very coldly, just like how Meng Xinyan had been aloof to him initially, and he had to chase her for so long. Men indeed cherished what they couldn't attain the most.
He couldn't pinpoint his exact feelings at this moment. Could it be regret?
No... He would never allow himself to feel regret. The Yun family had been in dire straits, and for his own family's sake, he could only abandon them to choose the Meng family. Moreover, he was fond of Xinyan. Why would he regret it?
Su Lenghan suppressed the feelings flooding through his heart, and the changes in his expressions vanished instantaneously. Nobody could even tell that he had been feeling peculiar.
With regards to what Xie Limo said, he only nodded to show his acknowledgment.
Xie Limo paid no attention to Su Lenghan's attitude. With his wife by his side, everything that he did was simply to support Yun Bixue.
He glanced askance at Meng Xinyan and never looked at her again. He couldn't bear to see how she blindly agreed to every word that Su Lenghan said.
Back in the past, the elders in his family had consistently attempted to offer him women similar to Meng Xinyan.
Feeling irritated, he didn't even bother to take a second look at her. In comparison, his wife was far superior. He really couldn't understand how Su Lenghan had been using his wits.
If Su Lenghan continued his ways, the Su family business would undoubtedly take a beating too.
However, all of this was none of his concern.
As Yun Bixue watched Su Lenghan, she felt that he had changed immensely. He used to be exquisite and elegant and had emanated a charming aura. Yet, he appeared somber and distant now, and it made the atmosphere oppressive.
As for Meng Xinyan, she had played a part in sabotaging her. Since Meng Xinyan had planned on messing with her, she naturally had to retaliate. However, the way Su Lenghan was reacted to it was beyond her expectations.
After snagging the one he loved, logically, he should be rejoicing. The way he behaved now was truly puzzling.
Well, Yun Bixue definitely wouldn't be able to comprehend the thoughts of a man like Su Lenghan.
Xie Limo removed his sunglasses and smiled tenderly at Yun Bixue. "Are you tired from walking? Let's go over there to rest. What do you want to eat? I'll buy it for you later."
Yun Bixue got caught up in Xie Limo's sudden attack of indulgence and couldn't resist it at all.
She felt her heart warming up, and her soul felt intoxicated as she met his shining and exquisite gaze. She murmured, "No, I'm not tired. I still have to buy those things for your mother later!"
Her tone sounded unintentionally flirtatious. As she leaned into his arms, she completely forgot about the two prominent third wheels who were just beside them.
