Yun Bixue looked at Xie Limo and touched the furrows in his brows, removing the frown from his face. “Limo, don’t wear yourself out. I can help you with whatever you need. I can share the burden with you, alright? I’m growing stronger now too.”
Xie Limo’s heart stirred as he looked at Yun Bixue’s increasingly gentle gaze. It was oozing with warmth.
No one had ever told him that they would share the burden with him. No one had felt worried that he was exhausted. To everyone else, the Young Master of the Xie family was also its heir. He was resilient and strong, and nothing could bring him down. No one had thought about whether he would feel tired or not.
Only his wife pampered him. She worked so hard to become stronger for him. How could he not care about someone like her? She was the person that he kept in his heart. For this reason, he was willing to shield her from all sorts of dangers. He would indulge in her and protect her.
Xie Limo gently held Yun Bixue’s hand. Placing her hand by the side of his lips, he kissed it. “My wife, you don’t have to worry. I won’t wear myself out. I need to have a healthy body in order to keep you company all the time.”
Yun Bixue felt the warmth from the kisses that Xie Limo planted on her fingertips. His kisses felt like electricity surging through her and cruising through her heart. It made her shudder endlessly, and her cheeks flushed red instantly. In order to not let Xie Limo see her bushing face, Yun Bixue rested her head in Xie Limo’s chest, arching her back just like a little kitten.
As Xie Limo lowered his head, he could see Yun Bixue’s reddened ears. He knew that she must have been feeling shy. It’s been such a long time, but his wife was still easily embarrassed. He couldn’t do anything about it, but his heart remained sweet. Her unique actions were only put on display in front of him.
The way she was behaving now was beautiful, and only he could witness it.
Xie Limo gently patted Yun Bixue’s back. “My dear, it’s time for dinner.” When it was time to eat, she wouldn’t do so when she’s alone. It wasn’t healthy for her stomach. His wife didn’t know how to take care of herself. As her husband, he felt responsible for taking good care of his wife.
Yun Bixue felt the concern in Xie Limo’s voice, so she stood up at once and went downstairs to eat dinner with him.
The Meng Family Home
When Father Meng found out that Meng Xintong had purchased some of the Zheng and Du families’ properties, he didn’t look pleased. In particular, Chen Pei would occasionally ignore him. Father Meng naturally grew upset.
While they were eating, Father Meng looked for an opportunity to discuss the Zheng and Du families’ property matters with Meng Xintong.
“Xintong, leave the Du and Zheng families’ properties to the veterans in the company first. Let them handle it. It’s also a good chance for us to expand our Meng family’s business.” Father Meng had recently favored his eldest daughter, but he was still very biased against her.
He especially felt that his youngest son was the most important. Under Chen Pei’s constant persuasion, Father Meng thought that he should leave the best things to his son so that he could carry on the family line. The value of his eldest daughter laid in the fact that she could create a lot of advantageous opportunities for the family.
After hearing Father Meng’s words, Meng Xintong felt extremely disappointed, and she couldn’t help but mock herself. Recently, she had been looking forward to some fatherly love. It was such a pity to realize that she had been overthinking about it. To the Meng family, she was there only because she had value and could bring benefits for them, and not because of love.
She raised her head and looked at Father Meng. He looked as though it was expected of her to do that. On the other hand, Chen Pei seemed extremely pleased with herself.
Meng Xintong’s expression froze. “Father, you should know that I didn’t use the Meng family’s money at all. I used my friend’s money to purchase the Du and Zheng families’ properties, so they do not belong to me. I’m just managing them.”
Chen Pei’s chopsticks immediately dropped on the table. The remaining properties of the two royal families didn’t belong to the Meng family? Does that mean that they didn’t belong to her youngest son too? How could that be? She had already planned everything. If those businesses were managed well, they could bring in a huge fortune. How could they be gone just like that?
