Xie Limo couldn’t even bear to find faults with the loved ones that he cherished over others himself. He surely wouldn’t allow others to criticize them as well. Thinking that someone might have aggravated Yun Bixue, Xie Limo’s expression turned slightly cold.
Yun Bixue naturally noticed the the displeasure in Xie Limo’s tone. She knew that he was still concerned about her, but her heart still felt uncomfortable. She clearly knew that she shouldn’t be so calculative, but a couple had to be calculative in a relationship.
Deep down, she only thought of spending her life with him until their sunset years. Even if they were too old and couldn’t walk, she also wished to hold his hand and take strolls together. She didn’t really need him to carry her, she just wanted him to appease her. However, he had actually not understood how she feltshe was, therefore, rather unhappy.
Yun Bixue raised her head and looked at Xie Limo. Indeed, she could see her own silhouette filling up his eyes. His gaze was brimming with tenderness for her, and she was soon basking under the gleaming reflections of his eyes.
Looking at Yun Bixue’s dazed expression, Xie Limo lowered his head and kissed her lips. Flicking his tongue, he brought out a burst of shudder. He lowered his voice and hummed beside her ear, “Quick, tell me. Who made my wife angry?”
Yun Bixue reflexively answered, “It’s you.” However, after snapping out of her shock, she desperately wanted to bite off her tongue and hide in a hole in the ground.
She didn’t dare look at Xie Limo’s expression before frantically escaping.
On the other hand, Xie Limo stood rooted to the ground in shock. A hint of doubt and confusion flashed across his eyes. When he took a second look at Yun Bixue, she had also ran into the house.
Ji Qiongxin noticed Yun Bixue, and happily chirped, “Yun Bixue, are you done putting up the couplets outside? You must be tired. Here, have some jujube rice cakes to fill up your stomach.”
“Mum, Limo is putting them up alone. I came in first to retrieve something.”
“He can do it himself. Here, eat something.”
Yun Bixue took a bite and her eyes lit up. “Mum, these jujube rice cakes are delicious.”
Ji Qiongxin laughed, “It seems like the two of us share the same taste. I don’t know how to make this. This time, your father-in-law brought some ingredients back, and had made it in the kitchen himself.”
“Does Dad know how to cook too?”
Ji Qiongxin laughed and answered, “He only knows how to prepare this dish. His culinary skills cannot be compared to that child, Limo.”
Yun Bixue recalled that she had been dumbfounded when Xie Limo had demonstrated his culinary skills. Back then, he told her that his mother had groomed him only because his father was inept at cooking.
Thinking back from that period till now, they had already spent so much time together. It had only been half a year. However, all these bits and pieces could all warm her heart.
Reminiscing the past days she spent with Xie Limo, she felt that her actions had been uncalled for. She clearly should have cherished him, so why did she throw a tantrum? She felt embarrassed and wanted to speak to Xie Limo.
Ji Qiongxin was unaware of the turmoil in Yun Bixue’s thoughts. She just wanted Yun Bixue to eat up.
After Yun Bixue finished her food and took a look outside, the couplets had already been put up. For a brief period of time, she couldn’t locate Xie Limo. Her heart felt dejected. She wondered if he was angry at her, and if he thought that she was bad-tempered.
She had definitely minded this. It was precisely because she cared about it, that she was behaving in this manner.
While Yun Bixue was looking for him, Xie Limo looked for Yun Bilu. He asked, “You understand your elder sister better than I do. Is she angry? Why is she angry with me?”
Yun Bilu happily answered, “Aiya, Brother-in-law, you’ve finally come to ask me. I almost couldn’t hold it back anymore.” Noticing that the expression on her elder sister’s face was odd, Yun Bilu felt anxious. She wanted to speak to her brother-in-law for a long time. She wanted him to understand and dote more on her elder sister.
