Xie Limo caressed Yun Bixue’s head and said, “How cheeky. You must be careful still. This Yun Mengshi must have a motive for getting close to you too. It’s just that you went to her first.”
“I know. I’m not the person I used to be. I know what I should do now. I only came across her profile by chance, which made me think about her backer and her motive. Rather than letting her get close to me secretly, I might as well find her first and pull her over to keep a close eye on. She won’t be able to do anything drastic under my watch.”
Xie Limo felt a little more reassured after hearing Yun Bixue’s words. “Shall I arrange a few more bodyguards for you?”
Yun Bixue immediately waved him off and said, “Don’t. If I go outside with a few people tagging along, won’t that make me look like a lady boss of a gang? It’s too eye-catching. That’s not good.”
“Even if you know it in your heart, you must not let your guard down. Just tell me if you have any problems.”
Yun Bixue felt a little embarrassed as she said, “I can’t depend on you for everything.”
“I’m your husband, so I should protect you and be your pillar of support. If you become too strong and independent, it will make me feel like I’m not needed anymore.” As he said that, Xie Limo placed the piece of fish, which he had already removed the bones from, in front of Yun Bixue’s mouth.
Yun Bixue ate it at once and smiled at him with her eyes. After swallowing it, she said, “Hubby, I’ve become more and more picky with food because of your cooking. I would even lose appetite when I eat the meals I cooked myself.”
A wave of happiness surged through Xie Limo’s heart. He thought that he should continue to improve his culinary skills next time.
After dinner, Yun Bixue laid on the sofa and browsed through the news for a while. She felt very puzzled by what she saw.
After washing the dishes, Xie Limo went to the living room and saw Yun Bixue lying there. He frowned and went up to give her a pillow as he said, “How many times have I told you? You still don’t listen. Lying like this makes you prone to getting cervical spondylosis.”
“I will take note next time.” Yun Bixue stretched out her hands and hugged Xie Limo’s neck, giving him a peck on the lips before looking down to continue browsing the news.
Xie Limo stood up and placed his hands in his pockets. A small smile tugged up the corners of his lips as he felt a little helpless against his wife.
Yun Bixue looked up and was about to ask Xie Limo something. However, the light was too strong, making her squint her eyes. Right at that moment, she saw her husband’s elegant and flawless body. There was an unparalleled magnificence in his elegance and beauty, which made her heart beat faster and faster.
No matter when and where, she would always be easily stunned by his gorgeousness.
Xie Limo did not get the look in Yun Bixue’s eyes. He thought she was feeling unwell and asked in a concerned voice, “What’s wrong?” As he said that, he even touched her forehead to see if she was having a fever.
Yun Bixue took Xie Limo’s hand down and said, “I’m fine. I just saw that there have been quite a few officials that have fallen from grace recently. Are these cases linked to you?”
“It was only because these people were too corrupt and lawless. I only acted according to the wishes of the public, so I collected the evidence and handed it over to the law enforcement officers.”
Yun Bixue smiled and said, “So, you’re still the one who did a good deed for the citizens. I read the news online. The things that these few people did were really terrible and made people angry, especially how they bullied the common folk. That’s why you’re a good official, Limo.”
Xie Limo chuckled but did not say anything. He did not care whether he was a good official or not, but hearing her compliments and how his work made her proud of him, it made him feel like being a good official was worthwhile after all.
Later, when Yun Bixue was about to go to sleep, she received a call from Bai Yaoyao.
When she saw that it was Bai Yaoyao, she immediately sat up on the bed and said, “Yaoyao, are you alright? I finally got a call from you. I know you said to limit our contact as much as possible because of Xirong Ziye, but it’s been a long time since I last heard from you.”
