Xie Limo didn’t ask Yun Bixue what was troubling her. He simply knew that he would always stay by her side no matter what happens. Moreover, she must’ve had her reasons for not telling him.
Hearing Xie Limo’s words, Yun Bixue finally felt relieved. “Limo, I’ll take good care of myself. Is your work at Tian Jing City running smoothly? Did you experience any tricky issues?”
“Don’t worry. Everything is running smoothly.”
Yun Bixue looked around, saw the clock, and realized it was already half past ten. Lying on the bed, she asked, “Hmm Hubby, are you tired?” Ever since Xie Limo left for his business trip, she became used to calling him ‘hubby’ over the phone.
“Not yet. Are you tired? If you are, sleep early. Cover yourself properly with the blanket.”
Xie Limo thought that Yun Bixue had fallen asleep as he hadn’t heard her voice after some time. He shook his head resignedly, his gaze turning gentle. Just as he was about to end the call, he heard a low voice from his phone. “Hubby, I can’t fall asleep.” In fact, she had grown used to him by her side. Without him around, she truly couldn’t fall asleep.
“It’s already very late. Didn’t you say that you have to work tomorrow at the company? Rest earlier tonight.” As he spoke, Xie Limo sighed softly. She was truly a dainty lady. Although they weren’t that far apart, he still couldn’t feel at ease without being by her side.
She never knew how to take good care of herself. While sleeping, she would unconsciously kick off the blanket. There were days that she didn’t even want to eat her breakfast. She would let her thoughts run wild occasionally. Sometimes, she was so strong that it made his heart ache; other times, she loved to split hairs and torture herself.
The more he thought, the more uneasy Xie Limo felt. He suddenly had the urge to go back to Ning An City immediately. Rubbing his brows, he inwardly sighed. Pampering someone could indeed become a habit.
While Yun Bixue was listening to Xie Limo’s indulgent and gentle words, she felt a lump in her throat. She said, “Hubby, I want to hear your voice more.” If it were in the past, the couple would still be awkward at exchanging sweet nothings.
That sentence sincerely came from Yun Bixue’s heartgenuine and without any doubts. She really felt that throughout her life, Xie Limo was the only one who was kind to her. He cherished and pampered her, so she wanted to express her heartfelt feelings at that moment.
Xie Limo listened to those words, his heart softening. He sat up in his bed, and gently said, “Sure. What do you want to hear?”
“Hubby, do you know how to sing? How about you sing for me?” At that moment, Yun Bixue was just like a child. Prompted by a sudden impulse, she wanted to listen to a song.
She thought that Xie Limo’s voice was so alluring, and wondered if his singing voice would be equally moving.
Xie Limo gently coughed, the corners of his lips curving upwards. Sing? He really hadn’t sung before. “Could you change it to something else?”
Yun Bixue exclaimed, “Hubby, haven’t you sung before? Even a nursery rhyme is fine. You definitely have learned nursery rhymes in kindergarten.”
Xie Limo’s lips curved even further. “My dear, your husband has indeed not attended kindergarten.” As the heir to the Xie family, he had to receive all sorts of training at a young age. He had not been able to enjoy an ordinary childhood. However, he had no intentions to tell Yun Bixue all these, lest she grew worried.
“Also, does my dear really want to listen to nursery rhymes? How old are you?”
“Didn’t you say that I frequently behaved like a child in the past? In your heart, I’m a child, and also your wife. In that case, what’s wrong with singing for your wife?”
Listening to these words, Xie Limo could imagine her unhappy expression as she pouted. He resignedly agreed, “Okay.”
After hesitating for some time, Xie Limo blushed. He held his breath for a long time.
Yun Bixue did not rush him. Holding on to her phone, she waited patiently. She held her breath as she listened. She knew that Xie Limo would never go back on his word. Once he had promised her, he would definitely sing for her.
