After hearing what Xie Limo said, she melted into a puddle again. Her eyes glistened as she looked at Xie Limo and said, "Limo, you're wonderful."
Xie Limo smiled softly. It felt like a myriad of flowers had bloomed simultaneously, and he seemed to be filled with all the grandeur in the world. "This makes me wonderful?" Really! He had done so much for her, and she had never been so touched. He merely requested for Xie Shiyi to lead a team to help her prepare and she was now so moved.
Such a young lady was so easy to please.
Yun Bixue nodded fervently. "Of course. It would be even more wonderful if you could help me when Mother-in-Law arrives."
Xie Limo shook his head. Everything she did had been revolving around his mother. He tucked his hands into the pockets of his pants and chuckled resignedly. It seemed like he was still one step behind his mother. Should he be feeling jealous?
"What do you want to know? I've already told you everything." For the past two days, she had clung to his side as she hounded him with questions. As long as she asked, he would offer his replies, but she was still jittery.
Xie Limo hoped that when his mother arrived, his wife would not be intimidated. When his mother's bright personality shone through, she was really... Recalling that, Xie Limo's lips curved up into a gentle smile.
Yun Bixue suddenly thought of something and asked, "Oh right, what's your mother's personality like?"
Xie Limo's exquisite brows twitched. "Why are you asking that?" It was obvious that Xie Limo wasn't following Yun Bixue's line of thought.
Feeling bashful, Yun Bixue said, "Well... I want to impress Mother-in-law while she's here."
The hands that were holding onto the newspapers stiffened, and Xie Limo lifted his head to look at his wife solemnly. He noticed the odd, frustrated expression on his wife's face and he involuntarily rubbed the center of his brows. "You're thinking of presenting yourself to follow what Mother likes?"
Yun Bixue nodded in embarrassment. "I have to make Mother-in-Law like me no matter what."
Xie Limo's chest rumbledit was the first time he let out a hearty chuckle. With one swift movement, he grabbed Yun Bixue and pulled her into his embrace. Inhaling her scent from the top of her head, he said gently, "My dear, I think you have it wrong. The person you should impress most is me, and not my mother. As long as I like you, my mother will too."
Yun Bixue pouted and replied, "So if I don't get into your good books, you won't be nice to me anymore? You won't like me anymore?"
Xie Limo tenderly bopped Yun Bixue's nose. "Of course not." No matter what, she was still his wife, and he would still give in to her as always.
Yun Bixue wrapped her arms around Xie Limo's neck and said, "Then no, the person I need to impress is not you."
"Enough, it's already late. You should sleep now. You have to wake up early tomorrow."
"Yes." Yun Bixue nodded. As she stood up, she inadvertently rubbed against his body, and it made Xie Limo gasp.
He shook his head and laughed resignedly. He had always possessed admirable self-control, but would always lose himself every time he dealt with his wife.
Yun Bixue blushed instantly. She felt the changes throughout his body, and she rushed to lie on the bed. Wrapping herself in the blankets, she covered her face to conceal her flushed cheeks.
Watching her shy reaction, Xie Limo's heart softened, and he lay down beside her.
The two of them shared the same blanket, but Yun Bixue instead felt a rich atmosphere in the air. Her heart started beating faster.
Just as she was lost in her thoughts, Xie Limo flipped over and covered her in his embrace.
Feeling how tense her body was, Xie Limo sighed lightly. He turned over and hovered above her. Looking down at her clear eyes, his slender fingers gently tidied the stray strands of her hair.
