Yun Bixue leaned in Xie Limo's embrace. Listening to Xie Limo's melodious and alluring voice, her heart seemingly felt comforted within an instant.
She raised her head and looked at the somber expression on Xie Limo's face. She questioned, "I was really too fierce just now, wasn't I?"
Xie Limo caressed Yun Bixue's hair and gently cooed, "Even if you were fierce, my wife is still the most adorable to me in my heart." He would never admit that he truly admired how she behaved like an enraged kitten with its hairs standing on its end.
The her earlier on was strong and it granted him some comfort. What he hoped for was that she would constantly be able to protect herself when he was not beside her to guard her.
"Then in the future, I"
Before Yun Bixue could complete her sentence, she was interrupted by Xie Limo. "In the future, my wife should be fierce when she needs to. When Mother was by your side, hadn't she fought several times? You can learn more from Mother."
Yun Bixue recalled how cool and dominating her mother-in-law was. Her heart welled up with admiration and she no longer felt conflicted over how violent she had been. "Seeing Shen Zhengyao just now, I felt a surge of anger within me. Moreover, I did all these because I had my justifications."
Xie Limo nodded and said, "I know. You wanted him to admit the existence of the Shen family's men of sacrifice. As long as the Shen family's men of sacrifice were forcibly revealed, the Shen family would truly be subdued."
Yun Bixue's eyes lit up and she commented, "Limo, you really read my mind."
Amused, Xie Limo shook his head and said, "More like I understand my wife well."
After Shen Zhengyao was thrown out, he coincidentally was blocked by the reporters. With a few close-up shots, he made the front-page headlines of the newspapers.
Despite experiencing the earlier episode and harboring fear for Yun Bixue within himself, Shen Zhengyao truly grown to hate Yun Bixue. He definitely had to seek revenge for this.
A sinister glint flashed across Shen Zhengyao's eyes and he spewed out a mouthful of blood before staggering home. Just as he was racking his brains for ideas, he received a call from a stranger.
"Who are you?"
"You need not care about who I am. I am someone who can help you. If you want my help, then go to There will be someone to receive you."
Shen Zhengyao went ahead feeling skeptical. In a building, an old man wearing a cap requested for him to activate his family's men of sacrifice.
"That can't do. The Shen family's men of sacrifice can only be activated by the heir." He still was not clear if this man was friend foe, and he naturally could not reveal his secrets.
The old man chortled, "What if I say I represent the Wang family from the South?" "
Shen Zhengyao's expressions changed drastically. The Northern Xie and Southern Wang! Could this be the Wang family that were the Xie family's rival a thousand years ago? The Xie family had controlled the North, and the Wang family the South.
Did the Wang family want to attack the Xie family?
"You ought to deliberate well. Only our Wang family from the South could handle the Xie family. Your Shen family can only survive if Xie Limo is taken down with one strike"
The old man guided patiently and systematically, and it stirred up Shen Zhengyao's heart.
Noticing that Shen Zhengyao had almost been taken in, the old man reminded, "Old Master Shen is bedridden now. As his grandson, it is not impossible to obtain the family's stamp to command the family's men of sacrifice, right?"
This sentence instantly struck a chord with Shen Zhengyao. His greed escalated within his heart and it grew uncontrollable.
Yun Bixue and Xie Limo had constantly arranged for someone to keep an eye on Shen Zhengyao. Looking at the blurred image on the laptop in her hands, Yun Bixue said, "Limo, although this old man is very stealthy, I think we cannot let him off."
"My wife is so clever. This person might be just a insignificant character but can serve as a warning to others. If the opponent can utilize the Shen family's men of sacrifice, we can also do the opposite and likewise exploit them." Xie Limo's voice was as calm as a breeze, as though he was discussing a more-than-normal topic.
