Listening to how her daughter-in-law spoke, Ji Qiongxin knew that it must be something interesting. She quickly put down the fruits that she was cutting on the table and moved closer to Yun Bixue's side. She began to read the article in the newspaper.
Every time she read the different theories on their relationships, Ji Qiongxin would snicker as well. "The author of this article indeed has a flair for writing, and an exceptional one. However, who is this 'Young Master Su'? Whoever has taken a liking to that Miss Meng must have poor judgment."
"Aunty, I think so too. No one can compare to Limo now." In Yun Bixue's heart, no one else was as important to her as Xie Limo was.
Listening to the tone of defense and pride in Yun Bixue's words, Ji Qiongxin pressed her lips and smiled. Ever since she started staying with her son and daughter-in-law, she had felt younger.
Pondering for a while, Yun Bixue explained, "Aunty, Young Master Su's real name is Su Lenghan, and he's also the next heir to the Su family. The Su family is one of the affluent and prestigious families of Ning An City. In the past, he and I had a verbal agreement to marry each other. However, after seeing my Yun family go bankrupt, and how my grandfather was gravely ill, he chose the Meng family."
Ji Qiongxin tightened her grip on the newspapers and lightly embraced Yun Bixue. "Poor child. No one will ever dare to take advantage of you again in the future. You have Limo and me, and we are your family. We will stay together forever."
"Aunty, thank you."
"After meeting your grandfather and settling the marriage arrangements with him, you'll have to address me as 'Mother'." After spending time with Yun Bixue, Ji Qiongxin grew increasingly fond of her daughter-in-law and even sincerely treated her as her own daughter. She didn't have her own daughter anyway, and Limo was her son. A daughter was indeed more considerate.
Yun Bixue's ears reddened and her eyes brightened up. She had a family to call her own now, and those feelings of loneliness that she used to possess no longer lingered.
At night, Xie Limo sat by the head of the bed, while Yun Bixue leaned on his thighs. He was currently drying her hair with a hairdryer. He'd started doing this because he was afraid that she might catch a cold from damp hair. However, he was already used to taking care of her.
He watched her as she looked at her phone and laughed, not knowing what she was amused about. Xie Limo shook his head with resignation and asked, "Why are you in such a good mood today?"
"Didn't you read the news? It's mind-blowing! The comments section have all exploded with messages about Young Master Su and his three women. Ah, and here I thought Su Lenghan had found such a compatible lover. It would have been wonderful if it were true, and I wouldn't have much to say. I'm only feeling sentimental nowadays."
Xie Limo took the phone in her hands and placed it on the table beside them. He continued drying her hair. "Lying down and using your phone isn't good for your eyes."
"Hmm, Limo, are you upset?" Yun Bixue suddenly realized that her husband was acting rather awkward tonight.
Yun Bixue turned around and smiled gently. Tugging on Xie Limo's sleeve, her brows curved and she asked, "Limo, are you jealous?"
Xie Limo coughed softly and replied, "Be good and stop playing around. Your hair isn't dry yet."
"Limo, if you're jealous, I won't tease you. I'll only be glad. My husband is finally feeling jealous over his wife."
"Have I not shown my jealousy to you before?"
Yun Bixue shook her head and said, "No, I used to think that you were like an almighty being, a god to many. Now, you've joined the mortals and have been influenced by earthly behaviors."
Xie Limo's exquisite gaze softened and he caressed her hair. "You're my wife. How could I not care? I was only used to pampering you in the past. And I'm confident in my wife, so her judgment wouldn't be that poor, right?"
