Ling Nanchen forcefully rubbed at his eyes with trembling hands, making sure that he did not imagine things. It was hard to believe that this Miss Yun—no, she was Madam Xie now—would dare to touch the tiger’s face.
The heavens were turning his world upside down. This was Young Master Xie, the heir to the Xie family. Even the most influential people had to be respectful in front of him. He was genuinely impressed with Yun Bixue right now.
There’s a saying that says everything has a weakness. No, it’s perhaps closer to how tempered steel could also be shaped into something soft .
In the Xie family, many big players, who were exceptionally skillful in their fields, still had to be respectful and careful in front of Young Master Xie. Even so, Young Master Xie remained elegant and charming, carrying with him a mysterious and unpredictable aura. Only when he was in front of Yun Bixue did he show such a gentle side of him without any masks on.
When he was summoned by Young Master Xie previously to treat Old Master Yun, he was just curious about this Miss Yun. Who would have known that within a year, the two of them would have already progressed into a lovey-dovey relationship which was torturous for people to see?
Looking at Young Master Xie and Yun Bixue, yes, he suddenly believed in love. Should he go back to find one for himself and settle down as well?
Xie Limo knew it the moment Ling Nanchen stepped foot inside. Ling Nanchen paused for a moment—he didn’t approach Yun Bixue right away. He was startled as Xie Limo’s gaze swept across him.
He immediately recovered his playboy facade. His peach flower-shaped eyes turned into slits as he smiled, and he walked forward to check on Yun Bixue’s injury. When he saw that it was only a mild burn, his eyes widened, and he felt exasperated. “Limo, I thought it was a severe injury since you called a top doctor like me in the middle of the night.”
Xie Limo sat at the side while he drank his tea. He said indifferently, “Aren’t you the best doctor in Ning An City? I would be completely at ease if it were you.”
With a single sentence, Ling Nanchen’s rage was extinguished. It showed that he was at least different from the others in Young Master Xie’s heart. He was both his friend and his subordinate, but this trust he had in him turned his mood good.
Ling Nanchen smiled. “Miss Yun, the Madam Xie now, you really are the apple of Young Master Xie’s eyes. I’m a top doctor from a gold medal doctor team, and even complex diseases can’t get me to move. Only he can get me to treat a small burn like this for you.”
Hearing Ling Nanchen’s dispirited whining, Yun Bixue lightly smiled. “Thank you for saving my Grandfather that day. I have never gotten the chance to express my gratitude. Have you eaten yet? Do join us for a meal.”
An indescribable joy shone in Ling Nanchen’s eyes as he caught a whiff of the food from the kitchen. “Young Madam is the most generous. I shall stay then.”
Yun Bixue didn’t see Xie Limo’s expression, which was turning colder and colder. She blinked her eyes while smiling. “They’re personally cooked by him too.”
Ling Nanchen was startled. He had almost twisted Yun Bixue’s arm, afraid that he had heard wrongly.
Yun Bixue’s brows furrowed from the pain, but she was too shy to say anything. Xie Limo strode over and pulled Ling Nanchen aside, lowering his head to check on Yun Bixue’s hand. His heart ached as he asked, “Does it hurt?”
Yun Bixue shook her head. “It’s okay. It doesn’t hurt. He was just too excited and did not notice.” She had trained before, so using that ability, she was able to sense that Ling Nanchen was specially trained as well.
Ling Nanchen picked himself up from the floor and coughed lightly. “Limo, look, your wife already invited me. If I don’t accept it, then won’t I be disrespecting the feelings of Young Madam?” No kidding, it was a meal that Young Master Xie personally prepared! It was a great honor to be able to eat it. After this meal, he would brag about it to his friends. Indeed, it was worthwhile to come tonight.
