Yun Bixue waited patiently while lying on the bed. Holding the phone closer to her ear, the corners of her lips turned up.
After a while, a deep melodious voice was heard from the other end of the phone. “Little swallow donning a flower dress and coming here every spring Little swallow said that it is the most beautiful here in spring”
His singing voice was just as she had expected. Like his normal voice, it was melodious and moving, hypnotic and sweet. His voice gently tugged at her heartstrings. As Yun Bixue listened, she felt enchanted. She never knew that a nursery rhyme like that could move her so much.
She listened attentively and held her breath, afraid that she would interrupt him. The corners of her lips turned up even higher. Her eyes were also filled with excitement and fascination.
It was so sweet-sounding! This was what the voice in her heart said. Moreover, what fascinated her was that her heart felt even more soothed as she listened to Xie Limo’s song.
In fact, it was Xie Limo’s first time to sing this song. He had thought carefully about it, but could not think of any other song. Therefore, he tried to recall the childhood songs from the past, and finally remembered this song. He didn’t even know if he could sing it well.
However, in order to please his wife, he could only sing. Due to the worry and concern in his heart, his singing voice had a hint of gentleness. After a while, he still hadn’t heard her voice over the phone. He lowered his tone and asked softly, “My dear, are you asleep?”
Yun Bixue happily answered, “No, hubby. Limo, your singing is lovely.” This was a compliment that came from the bottom of her heart. It was truly lovely, and she couldn’t get enough of it.
Xie Limo gently laughed. He had finally managed to appease her. “Can you sleep now?”
“Yes, I can fall asleep listening to your song.”
In the end, Yun Bixue was lulled into sleep by Xie Limo’s singing. She didn’t even realize she had fallen asleepshe was sprawled across the bed, clutching the phone.
Light breathing sounds were heard from the other end of the phone. Xie Limo ended the call, then called Xie Shiyi. He instructed her to take good care of his wife.
Xie Shiyi understood what he meant. With light footsteps, she came inside the bedroom. She removed the cellphone from her Young Madam’s hands, and placed it on the nightstand. Afterwards, she shifted Yun Bixue into a more comfortable position, then covered her with the blanket. Finally, Xie Shiyi left silently.
Yun Bixue was dreaming, smiling sweetly. It was as though she had forgotten all her troubles. Even her dreams were sweet.
The next day, Yun Bixue went to Snow Cloud Group. She wanted to bring Yun Bilu along, but her younger sister shook her head and refused. The latter said that she would be visiting the Old Witch Shen and Yang Siru.
Yun Bixue laughed. “Don’t go overboard. If you’re bored, come to Snow Cloud Group.”
“Yes, I know. Elder Sister, don’t tire yourself out too.”
Yun Bixue arrived at Snow Cloud Group and began to review the documents for the new year. She requested for the Film and Television Department to prepare a proposal. She intended to establish a new subsidiary company which would specially take charge of films and television programs. This was because the profits would be inconceivably high after managing the film industry well.
When Wang Man entered to deliver some documents, Yun Bixue raised her head and noticed the odd expression on the former’s face. A hint of suspicion flashed across her eyes. Yun Bixue asked, “Wang Man, why are your eyes so red? Did you cry? Did someone in the company bully you? Tell me. No one can take advantage of my subordinates.” It wasn’t that she was overprotective, but rather, Wang Man was simple-headed and kind. She would easily be wronged.
Looking at Yun Bixue’s worried face, the sorrow in Wang Man’s heart almost overwhelmed her. Trying to keep down her emotions, she answered, “Elder Sister Yun, I’m fine. Really. Nobody bullied me. Everyone in the company is nice to me.” After the huge reform across the company, the old employees left and the new hires were all nice people.
Yun Bixue stood up, then pulled Wang Man to sit on the sofa. She asked, “What happened? Tell me. Perhaps you would feel better after letting it out.” Holding a lot of things in one’s heart could cause one to fall ill after some time.
In the end, Wang Man slowly spoke. She had actually broken up with her boyfriend who had been studying abroad. Also, he was heartless and utterly neglected all the effort Wang Man put in throughout these years.
