Yun Bixue wiped the tears from her eyes, and placed the flowers she held in her hands on the tombstone. “Dad, Mum Yun Bilu and I are here to see you. This time, I even brought my husband along. He is your eldest son-in-law, and he treats me very well. Dad, Mum, if you knew about this, you would feel happy for me too, right?”
Yun Bilu knelt before the tombstone too. She wept silently and burned the joss papers.
Xie Limo bowed thrice before the tombstone, and said, “Dad, Mum, I will treat Bixue well. I will also take care of Younger Sister. Don’t worry.”
Yun Bixue noticed the solemn and sincere expression on Xie Limo’s face. She felt so touched that words could not describe what she was feeling. All daughters were like thatif their other half respected their parents, their hearts would especially approve of him. Yun Bixue was just an ordinary girl, and she was no exception. That was why she was extraordinarily moved.
As they returned from the graves, Yun Bixue began recounting her parents’ story in the car. “Limo, most of the marriages in Ning An City were arranged, but my parents were truly in love with each other. Grandfather was very kind. He insisted on his own stance, and did not object. Back then, Old Lady Shen had mocked my mother for being an orphan, and Grandfather then quarreled with Old Lady Shen. After that, my parents decided to move out. It was also during that time when they had found information about my mother’s family. My father accompanied my mother to look for her family, but they never returned When we heard that they perished at sea, Grandfather fainted. My younger sister and I were also shocked”
Although a long time had already passed, Yun Bixue’s heart was still heavy with grief whenever she spoke about this. If her parents were still alive, they would have been a blissful family.
Yun Bilu sat in the backseat. Suppressing her emotions, she harshly wiped away the tears on her face. She couldn’t let her elder sister worry about her.
Xie Limo softly sighed. In a tender and comforting voice, he said, “Don’t feel sad anymore. The two of you are wonderful. You have each other and also Grandfather, isn’t it? You have to cheer up for your family members.”
“Yes.” Yun Bixue nodded, and tried hard to calm herself down. In the past, she was always with her grandfather. Unfortunately, her grandfather became sickly, and could no longer take a hike in the mountains. Since then, she always came alone. This year, she had her husband and younger sister by her sideshe wasn’t lonely anymore. She was definitely in greater spirits than the previous years.
With one hand on the steering wheel, Xie Limo used his other hand to caress Yun Bixue’s head. “Don’t feel sad anymore. Show me a smile.” His voice was soothing and encouraging.
Tickled by Xie Limo’s caress, Yun Bixue chuckled. Her smile was radiant, but her eyes were filled with tearsXie Limo reached out and wiped them away.
Upon Yun Bixue’s request, he pulled the car to a halt. Yun Bixue went to the backseat, and the two sisters leaned against each other. They comforted each other silently.
When they arrived home, the two sisters didn’t bring up any upsetting matters. They knew that their grandfather was feeling downcast, so they stayed by his side and talked about light-hearted and fun topics. Yun Bilu particularly talked to her grandfather about the interesting events that happened in school.
That evening, they cooked the glutinous rice balls. Once the rice balls were ready, the aroma wafted around the whole house. They chatted while eating the rice balls, and they all had a wonderful time.
Just as the family was waiting to watch the lantern festival on the TV, Xie Limo took out several tickets. He promptly announced, “Let’s go. I’ll bring everyone to the venue and watch it live.”
Once they heard they could go and watch the show live, the whole family became ecstatic. Not everyone could get tickets to the live show of Ning An City. Many affluent figures around the world had to wrack their brains trying to watch the show live.
Yun Bixue was stunned. Xie Limo had not left their sides for the entire afternoon. How did he manage to get the tickets? In addition to that, he got tickets for the entire family!
