Yun Bixue leaned her head against Xie Limo's shoulders. Breathing in the faint scent emanating from Xie Limo's body, her heart felt grounded. "I don't need him to see my wholesomeness." To her, what happened with Su Lenghan was irrelevant now.
Xie Limo looked at Yun Bixue, who was clinging onto him like a child, and said, "Yes, you don't need him to see that."
As he spoke, he looked at the skies outside and asked, "Are you hungry? You haven't had dinner yet, have you?"
Yun Bixue shook her head and replied, "I'm not hungry." In fact, she just didn't want Xie Limo to worry.
"You'll need to wait a while before the show starts. Be good and wait in the car for me." With that, Xie Limo opened the door and alighted from the car.
Yun Bixue was somewhat puzzled. Shortly after, Xie Limo returned to the car with two cups of milk and two hamburgers in his hands. He passed Yun Bixue her share and said, "Eat this while it's hot so that you'll have energy for later."
"Limo, why are you always so attentive?" She sometimes felt that Xie Limo was more thoughtful and took better care of other people than a woman did.
Xie Limo chuckled helplessly, "Let's eat!" He then lowered the temperature inside the car.
Yun Bixue munched on the hamburger and drank the milk. Within a short time, her stomach was warmed from the inside. She had her fill and felt more energized.
Watching the two women ahead still in heated debate, she asked, "Why isn't Su Lenghan here yet? Is he giving up on his fiance's matters?"
"He'll definitely come."
"Why are you so sure?"
Xie Limo laughed plainly without a word. He understood men. If his guess was correct, Su Lenghan would be feeling somewhat regretful right about now. He was probably imagining how things would've turned out if he'd stayed together with Yun Bixue instead.
If Su Lenghan truly didn't care after Yun Bixue called to inform him about Meng Xinyan's plight, whatever positive feeling left in Yun Bixue's heart would vanish. Men are creatures with very strong self-esteem. Therefore, he would surely arrive.
Of course, he had no intention of explaining this to Yun Bixue.
Yun Bixue was enjoying her meal and had dirtied the corners of her lips with numerous crumbs. Xie Limo gently wiped those crumbs away.
At that moment, Xie Limo's phone rang. It was Ji Qiongxin. She was worried about the two of them. The winds and snow were so heavy, and she wondered when they would return.
"Mother, I'm with Bixue. Don't worry."
Ji Qiongxin sighed in relief over the phone, "Okay. I can feel at ease knowing that the two of you are together. Our Xie family has several properties all over Ning An City. If the road back is too dangerous, just choose a villa to stay in for the night."
Xie Limo nodded. "Yes."
Right after hanging up, Yun Bixue noticed a dignified silhouette up ahead. Despite his hurried movements, it did not conceal his suaveness.
Tugging on Xie Limo's sleeve, she said, "Quick, take a look! He's here."
It was unknown what Su Lenghan said to the two of them, but Meng Xinyan leaned into Su Lenghan's embrace and started bawling.
Yun Mengshi stood to the side and looked rather lonely. Yun Mengshi thought for a bit and then opened the door. Alighting from the car, she walked over.
Su Lenghan was about to console Meng Xinyan, but then simply paused. As he looked at Yun Bixue, his heart twisted with complex emotions.
"Su Lenghan, I'm quite annoyed to see that someone is bullying my little sister. Especially this car, someone rammed into it on purpose for no reason at all. How should we settle this?"
Watching the unyielding and dominating Yun Bixue, Su Lenghan's gaze changed. He had constantly tried to search for the former Yun Bixue within her, but ultimately discovered that she had changed drastically. Her gentle and docile personality was nowhere to be found.
In reality, what Su Lenghan didn't realize was that Yun Bixue only displayed her gentle side in front of Xie Limo.
