Listening to how rightful Yun Muzhong sounded in his words, Shen Zhengyao thoroughly understood what it meant by change being an ever-present element in the world and in relationships. When the Shen family used to be powerful, everyone who met himthe future heir of the Shen familywould surely be respectful. Even the usually wooden Yun Muzhong treated him lovingly and kindly. He had never shown such a hostile expression.
"Sure, sure Yun Muzhong, haha. My Shen family might be in the gutters, but even so, we don't have a youngest uncle like yourself. I wonder how Great Aunt and Youngest Aunt would respond to your affair."
Yun Muzhong's complexion turned pale. He definitely could know allow the old lady and his relatives from the Yang family learn of this. He glowered at Shen Zhengyao and said, "Shen Zhengyao, do you think that you would lead a better life after telling them? Don't treat them as fools! Regardless, I am also a blood-related son of the old lady, and you are merely her nephew!"
That was exactly Shen Zhengyao's Achilles heel. No matter what, his surname was Shen, and the Yun family would never wholeheartedly support him.
Wang Qiuge stood by the side and watched the show unfold. Especially when she saw how the Grand Young Master of the Shen familywho had previously lived a privileged lifewas feeling frustrated, she was not only delighted. In addition, her mission was also undoubtedly to sow discord between Old Lady Shen and Yang Siru. Regarding when her identity would be exposed, she was not at all worried. It was best that they found out sooner than later, as it would allow her to replace her backer in disrupting the Yun family, and to vent her anger.
Of course, the backer was Yun Bixue, who was observing the episode at that moment.
After just a while, Xie Limo arrived by Yun Bixue's side, accompanied by his elegant aura.
Yun Bixue was relishing in watching the scene, and she smelled a familiar faint and dark scent in the air. She sighed quietly. What was wrong with her? She had just spoken to him on the phone and was missing him already.
As she shook her moment, Xie Limo wrapped her into an embrace from her back with one swift movement. He lowered his head and softly sighed by her ear. "My dear?"
Yun Bixue was startled and she turned her head around. Such an alluring and exquisite face; if it wasn't Xie Limo, who else could it have been?
Yun Bixue looked all directions around her. Xie Shiyi had already retreated to somewhere near and had granted the couple some personal space. She lowered her voice and asked, "Isn't it working hours now? Why did you come out? Also, how did you know that I am here?"
Xie Limo laughed lightly, his sounds so low, as if an antique zither was playing right beside Yun Bixue's ear. "My dear, you asked me so many question at one go. Which should I answer?"
Yun Bixue's lips involuntarily curved up into a relaxed smile. As long as Xie Limo was by her side, her heart always felt grounded. Without further questioning, she pointed towards Shen Zhengyao and asked, "Take a guess, what would he do next?"
At that moment, Shen Zhengyao and Yun Muzhong were in heated debate. Yun Muzhong and Wang Qiuge had taken their leave, looking all puffed up. Only Shen Zhengyao remained at his spot.
Finally, he retrieved his things that had been scattered all over the floor, and carried them out the door.
A hint of light flashed across Xie Limo's exquisite eyes. He pulled Yun Bixue's hand and said, "Let's go. We will meet him again later."
"The Shen family overestimated their own abilities in the past. They still planned to rally the other prestigious families of Ning An City to plot against you. I want to hear what he has to say now."
Xie Limo looked at Yun Bixue with indulging eyes. "I know that my wife feels indignant inside. Later, you would be able to step all over him and vent your frustration as much as you desire."
Yun Bixue watched the solemn expression on Xie Limo's face, and flashed a dazzling smile. "Pampering me like that, aren't you afraid that I will go awry?"
"To spoil my dear till she becomes unruly delights my heart."
Yun Bixue's spirits lifted and she took initiative to lug around Xie Limo's arm. The two of them strode towards the same direction as their hearts shared tacit understanding.
Shortly after they arrived at Xie Limo's office, it was conveyed from someone outside that Shen Zhengyao had requested for a meeting.
