That night, Yun Bixue had been in a deep slumber. As she slowly opened her eyes, she saw Xie Limo rising to answer a phone call. She started rubbing her eyes, but when she heard Xie Limo addressing his mother, she became clear-headed immediately.
She felt nervous yet expectanteven uneasyas all kinds of thought started popping into her head.
She then ransacked her drawers in search of something.
After ending the call, Xie Limo noticed that his wife was no longer lying in bed. He saw her small silhouette looking for something and shook his head resignedly. He asked tenderly, "It's already so late. What are you trying to find?"
"I'm looking for my makeup and taking out the clothes that I'll be wearing." Xie Limo's mother was coming, and she must leave a positive impression.
Watching how silly his wife looked, Xie Limo's eyes lit up. "You look great just like that. You don't need makeup."
Yun Bixue blinked her eyes and looked at Xie Limo doubtfully. "Am I pretty?" When comparing herself to her alluring and exquisite husband, she could only feel mad at the drastic contrast. He was beautiful, but she was immensely less so.
Xie Limo's eyes shone brightly. It felt like whirlpools had formed in his eyes and it sucked Yun Bixue in. He gently stepped forward and caressed her head. "In my heart, my wife is naturally the most beautiful."
There was no pretense in his words. He thought that life was indeed fascinatinghe used to be surrounded by countless beauties but had never wavered. Now, he was willing to pamper her and even felt that he was too fortunate to have met her.
Watching the seriousness and gentleness in Xie Limo's face, Yun Bixue felt a sweetness in her heart. Pretending to be upset, she said, "You're lying to me. If you want to meet the most beautiful person, you should look in the mirror. Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all? Xie Limo is." Yun Bixue started teasing him by mimicking the lines from the fairy tale.
Xie Limo burst into a fit of laughter. Gently bopping Yun Bixue's nose, he said, "So playful."
Seeing how she let go of everything and was revealing her relaxed side, he was willing to pamper and indulge her. She was similar to a child, but even if she were a child, he would continue to do so.
"Oh right, Limo. Is your mother arriving soon?" Yun Bixue didn't realize that she was treating Xie Limo more and more like her family, and their interactions were becoming more natural and harmonious.
"Yes, the private plane should arrive tomorrow morning. I'll take you there to pick up her up."
It was good for his mother to meet her. After all, he and Yun Bixue were already married, but he had yet to give her a grand wedding ceremony. This naturally would require his mother's assistance to prepare, and she would offer her the greatest indulgence on behalf of the Xie family.
He did not wish for his wife to suffer any form of indignation.
Yun Bixue knew that the Xie family was affluent, and having their own private plane was not surprising. She asked curiously, "Where is the private plane landing?"
"There's an area in the eastern suburbs in Ning An City, and it's just for my private use. There are personal lots for the planes." The Xie family had amassed a thousand years worth of riches, and each generation grew richer than the previous one. Money was not particularly attractive to the Jia family now and was only a representation of numbers. Thus, no matter where they settled down, the Xie family would surely establish a certain area for their private use.
"Okay." Yun Bixue did not probe into the finer details and believed that Xie Limo had already prepared everything.
Xie Limo could tell that she was feeling nervous. Although he had asked his mother to delay her arrival, it seemed that she had yet to calm down. Forget itthey had to meet eventually. "Enough, don't worry. Rest earlier so you'll have more energy for tomorrow."
"I'm going to take out everything first to prepare. Then it won't be too much of a rush."
Xie Limo watched the determination in Yun Bixue's expression and sighed gently. "Tomorrow morning, I'll ask Xie Shiyi to lead a professional team to help you prepare. You just need to be there."
