Xie Limo chuckled and pinched Yun Bixue’s nose. He asked in a soft voice, “Why? Do you feel it’s unfair for them?”
Yun Bixue shook her head. “It’s just that if the rules were not implemented and enforced properly, everyone would exploit the loopholes.”
Yun Bixue did not know that because of her one statement, Xie Limo—as the leader of Ning An City—would order for stricter rules during examinations. Favoritism was never allowed to come into play especially during the interview stage. This created many opportunities for talents without influential background and allowed new blood to join Ning An City’s political scene.
An idea popped up in Yun Bixue’s mind. She leaned on Xie Limo’s back and whispered, “Say, what do you think of letting Meng Xintong bring her boyfriend back to the Meng family?”
Xie Limo caressed Yun Bixue’s head. “How naughty of you. Aren’t you worried that the Meng family will become chaotic?”
“Based on Meng Xintong’s situation, she is already very disappointed in the Meng family, to the extent where it is almost unbearable. In any case, that is something which will be revealed eventually, so before that happens, letting Meng Xintong play for a while isn’t a bad idea. I think she wants to bring her boyfriend home. Both of them are so in love with each other that they hate that they couldn’t just bring each other home.”
Xie Limo did not object to Yun Bixue’s thoughts. He supported anything she wanted to do.
“Limo, two noble families—the Du and Zheng family—just fell into shambles. If anything happens to the Meng family, would it have any negative impact on you?” Yun Bixue was worried that the remaining noble families would come together to form an alliance, or how people might take the chance to spread the idea that it was Xie Limo’s fault which would affect his career.
In other words, she had a lot to consider about.
Xie Limo looked at Yun Bixue lovingly. “You worry too much. With me here, you can do whatever you want. Even if the sky falls, I will be there to hold it up. Besides, the Xie family headquarters is not located in Country A. No one in Country A can restrict me, do you understand?”
“I know that the Xie family is powerful, but I’m still worried that you would become stressed trying to balance the power all around.” Her heart ached for him when she saw how busy Xie Limo was every day.
Yes, this was heartache. Her past self did not understand the feelings of a married couple. However, ever since she met the right person, she understood the feeling of heartache.
Xie Limo shook his head and spoke softly, “Don’t think too much about it. You just have to take good care of yourself. If I’m busy, you can call up a few friends to go out with.”
Friends? Yun Bixue was startled for a moment. Her best friend was Bai Yaoyao, and she couldn’t reach her—she had no idea where she went.
Xie Limo seemed to know what she was thinking. He said, “If your friends are not by your side, you can ask your colleagues.”
Yun Bixue’s eyes lit up. Yes, she could ask Wang Man. Wang Man was only two years younger than her, so the two of them actually had a lot of things they could talk about.
She knew that her husband was too considerate. He was always thinking about everything for her, and he was also more attentive than she was.
Meanwhile, Li Xu—who had heard the recording that Wang Man played for him—isolated himself in the house for a few days. After that, he acted like he didn’t know anything and continued spending time with Xu Miaodan, catering to her every whim.
It was one thing when he didn’t know about the truth, but now that he knew, he couldn’t ignore anything. For example, when they were eating, Xu Miaodan received a call and said that something happened at home and she had to leave.
The Li Xu in the past wouldn’t think too much about it, but now, he had a hunch that Xu Miaodan was meeting with another man.
