When Yun Bixue called, the call connected, but she did not hear Xie Limo’s voice.
Yun Bixue’s heart clenched tightly, and she said gently, “Limo?”
When she still did not get a reply, she chewed on her lip, and her tone softened even further. “Mr. Xie, my dear husband, hubby? Can you hear me?”
Hearing Yun Bixue’s coquettish tone, his heart could not help but soften. He sighed. “What were you busy with? Xue, you did not answer when I called you. I was worried.”
Yun Bixue’s heart warmed, and she felt a little guilty when she heard Xie Limo’s sigh and resigned tone. Looking at the grand entrance of Elite Tower, she thought that it would be better if Xie Limo didn’t know. She replied evasively, “I was busy at the company. Since I turned the volume of my phone down, I didn’t hear it ring. I only saw your missed calls when I was checking for the time. I called back right away after I saw them.”
“Okay. Even if you’re busy with work, you shouldn’t exhaust yourself. If you have to go out, remember to be careful.”
Yun Bixue was touched. The feeling of being cared for was heartwarming. “Yeah, I know. You too, don’t overtire yourself because of work.”
Yun Bixue recalled that it was still Xie Limo’s working hours, and it was unusual for him to call at this time. She asked worriedly, “Limo, did something happen? Is that why you called me?”
“Xue, I have a dinner party tonight, so I will return home later. I can’t tell you what time exactly I will be back either. Once you’re done with your work, return home right away, eat well, and sleep early too. Don’t wait for me.”
Dinner party? It was Yun Bixue’s first time hearing those words from Limo.
Although she was worried, she did not say anything in consideration of her hubby. She trusted that her husband knew his own boundaries.
“I will wait for you, no matter how late it gets.”
“Xue, listen to me. Don’t make me worry. Rest early. If you don’t want to cook, buy a take-out or eat out, but remember to bring your bodyguards. Don’t eat cold or spicy food…”
Hearing Xie Limo’s instructions and his nagging, Yun Bixue’s mood turned for the better as she listened patiently.
“Xue, are you listening?”
“I heard you. Okay.” She enjoyed the feeling of being cared for by him.
It was just him returning home late, so why did it feel like they would be separated for a long time? Why did he have so many instructions?
After they were done, when Xie Limo was about to hang up, Yun Bixue said in a rush, “Limo, you’re not allowed to look at beautiful ladies. No matter how pretty they are, you have to think that they’re not better than me.”
Xie Limo smiled heartily and replied, “Okay, my dear wife.”
Hearing his voice that carried traces of a smile, she flushed. She was glad that he couldn’t see her face at that moment.
Yun Bixue put her cell phone in her pocket and fanned her face with her hand to cool herself down.
Later, when Xie Limo returned home, the lights of the living room was still on, and he could still hear the sound of the television. His brows furrowed as he thought, “Why was Bixue still awake?”
When he changed to his indoor slippers and walked over, he saw Yun Bixue holding onto the remote control as she laid there fast asleep.
Xie Limo’s heart ached for her, and he felt helpless at the same time. When he was not at home, she really did not know how to take care of herself. He took the remote control away before turning off the television.
Xie Limo gently swept her hair aside, which was over her cheeks. His movements were extremely gentle in order not to rouse her.
