After returning to the set, Yun Bixue mulled over the recent disturbance. The time between Xu Miaodan’s appearance and departure was very short, but she kept thinking that something was off. Maybe she had been thinking too much?
Wang Man broke into her thoughts as she brought the food that had been heated. She asked, “Elder Sister Yun, did I give you any trouble today?”
Yun Bixue smiled at Wang Man and said, “Take it easy. Just do your work well. The Xu family doesn’t get along well with my Yun family already, so I don’t have anything nice to say to her. Besides, seeing that you’ve been bullied, I felt furious too.”
Wang Man felt grateful towards Yun Bixue from the bottom of her heart. If she hadn’t had this job, together with the people who care about her, she might perhaps have returned home feeling disheartened.
When Yun Bixue spoke to Xie Limo that night, she found out that he was coming home after a few days. She was elated, her voice becoming more cheerful.
At the other end of the line, Xie Limo could feel how happy Yun Bixue was as he listened to his wife’s voice. They had not seen each other for quite a while. Ever since they got together, they had not been separated for such a long time.
It would be a lie if he said that he didn’t miss her. Even his mood had put him out of sorts. Unknowingly, his emotions became affected by her.
The capital was also a place where the good and the bad mingled. It wouldn’t be an easy feat if the royal families and those with power wanted to break up and reorganize the structure in the country.
As the Xie family’s heir, he naturally bore the burden of the responsibilities. There were a lot of things he had to do, and this was also why he began his work in Ning An City.
The Xie family had a thousand years of historyit had to possess the power and authority to stand firm.
In Ning An City, Yun Bixue was an unexpected reward for him, catching him by surprise. He would protect this gem of his.
Every night, Yun Bixue would listen to Xie Limo’s voice. After hearing his voice, a day’s worth of exhaustion would simply melt away. She had grown used to it. If she didn’t hear his voice, she would find it difficult to fall asleep.
Before they ended the call, Yun Bixue suddenly recalled what happened during the day. She brought up the Xu family to Xie Limo.
A glint flashed across Xie Limo’s exquisite eyes. The mention of the Xu family only reminded him of the Jiang family in the capital, Tian Jing City. He spoke clearly, “The Xu family wouldn’t act rashly. The Xu family’s backer is the Jiang family in Tian Jing City. If the Jiang family doesn’t lift a finger, the Xu family wouldn’t do anything drastic.”
Yun Bixue nodded. “I see. I can feel at ease now. I can handle a cheap shot. As long as it isn’t the entire family’s collective effort, I still can manage.”
“Yes. No matter what happens, you have to learn to protect yourself. Remember to bring Xie Shiyi along regardless of where you go. There are still other men of sacrifice from the Xie family at home.”
“I know” Yun Bixue dragged her words out.
Xie Limo chuckled resignedly. “Do you find me irritating?”
Yun Bixue covered her mouth and giggled. She pretended to be solemn and answered, “Mr. Xie, you have the potential to become an old granny now!”
“You’ve learned to tease me, haven’t you?”
In the end, Yun Bixue couldn’t contain it and chortled.
Xie Limo heard her laughter through the phone. His expression turned gentle.
“My dear is becoming more and more capable now. You not only tease me, but also laugh at me, hmm? Aren’t you afraid that I’ll punish you when I return? Don’t beg me for mercy when that happens.”
Speaking of punishment, both of them were aware of what it meant. Yun Bixue’s cheeks flushed, her heart shuddering. Each time they laid on the bed, he would always lavish her with great pleasure. His intense passion was torturous. Likewise, their yearning for each other was torturous.
She looked forward to his early return, but had never urged him to do so, nor even mention it. This was because she knew that he wasn’t having an easy time.
