Yun Bixue had donned a dress the color of a lagoon and covered it with a coat. Her hair was tied up into a high ponytail, and she wore a pair of diamond-studded high heels. It made her look exquisite and refined.
When she noticed Xie Limo, she merely smiled gently but somehow looked as gorgeous as a flower. Her entire appearance was alluring.
A subtle light flashed through Xie Limo's eyes, and he stretched out his hand. The gentleness in his gaze seemed to disregard everything else in the world.
Yun Bixue slowly trotted over to Xie Limo's side on her heels, and she placed her hand into his palm. He tightly held onto her hand.
She entrusted her whole heart to this very pair of slender hands, and they had given her a home.
Xie Limo looked at Yun Bixue affectionately and said, "You're so beautiful today. Are you ready?"
Being complimented by Xie Limo, Yun Bixue felt a sweetness welling up in her heart. She nodded and replied, "I'm ready. Let's go and pick up your mother."
"She's also your mother."
Xie Limo drove alongside Yun Bixue, and after more than half an hour, they arrived at an expansive private parking lot for airplanes. There were hundreds of workers surrounding them.
When all of them noticed Xie Limo, they collectively greeted him with respect, "Young Master Xie!"
Their voices were filled with admiration and also sincerity.
Xie Limo seemed to have sensed Yun Bixue's skepticism, and he lowered his head slightly to give an explanation close to her ear, "Ten of the commanders here belong to the Xie family. The rest have received training in Country A and have been appointed here."
Yun Bixue nodded. She now felt even more doubtful towards the Xie familywhat kind of influential family could wield such powerful authority?
After a while, the airplane landed.
Yun Bixue's breath hitched. Shortly after, the airplane doors opened, and a row of men dressed sharply in suits filed out. A dignified and poised woman followed after. She was dressed in a full suit of wine red, and she emanated an air of competence amidst her elegance. Her eyes lightly slanted upwards. Her hands were soft and tender like a newborn, and her skin was pale and delicate. The way she walked was imposing.
Her slanted eyes shifted, and they seemed to contain a look of delight. She strode over to Xie Limo and Yun Bixue and said, "You must be Yun Bixue, my son's wife and also my daughter-in-law! Hello, my name is Ji Qiongxin, Xie Limo's mother. You can follow after my son and call me that too." After speaking, she pulled out a jade bangle from her body and reached for Yun Bixue. She slipped on the bangle right away and examined it from various angles, seemingly very pleased with it.
Startled, Yun Bixue tried to collect herself. Xie Limo's mother was truly unpredictable. After she snapped out of her shock, she didn't even know how to address her.
"Aunty, this is too precious." Although she was well-informed, she'd still never seen a jade bangle of such quality. She presumed it must be very costly.
"Just call me 'Mother'. No need for so many rules when it comes to family." Ji Qiongxin took a closer look at Yun Bixue, and her heart felt lighter. She would naturally adore the person that her son liked. This child was delicate and pretty; her personality must be great too.
Xie Limo stepped in just in time to help Yun Bixue from her embarrassment. "Mother, don't frighten her."
"Look at you! Okay, treat your wife well yourself. Keep this bangle on. Take it as my gift to you for our first meeting." For her son to somehow find someone he liked and get married to her, she felt that the load on her chest had finally been lifted.
Yun Bixue looked up at Xie Limo, and he gently said, "Since Mother gave it to you, keep it on. You need to know that." As he spoke, he caressed Yun Bixue's hair.
They displayed their love for each other before his mother without any reservations.
