Yun Bixue was speechless after hearing the satisfaction in her younger sister’s words. If Huang Yize made her younger sister happy, she would still support her younger sister regardless of her worries and doubts.
“Bilu, you have to learn to protect yourself. I’m not by your side all the time, so please take good care of yourself. You and Grandfather are the only family I’ve got left.”
“Elder Sister, you still have Brother-in-law and Mummy Lu!”
Yun Bixue considered it, and the thought warmed her heart. Indeed, she had so many family members by her side, and she couldn’t help but feel very contented and thankful.
When the call with her younger sister had ended, Yun Bixue felt much more relieved. Since Yun Bilu had already returned to her dorm, nothing else should happen to her.
After spacing out for a while, Yun Bixue walked to the kitchen. She took a peek and saw that Xie Limo was cooking glutinous rice balls. “Limo, let me help you.”
“It’s alright. It’ll be done in a few minutes. If you’re bored, you can go watch TV.” Xie Limo’s voice was loving and gentle, and it sounded even warmer in Yun Bixue’s head.
When he saw that Yun Bixue remained beside him and refused to budge, he felt rather helpless. Tonight, his wife was exceptionally clingy, and he really was at a loss for words. He scooped out the rice balls and lowered his head to kiss Yun Bixue’s cheek. “Bring the glutinous rice balls over. We’ll eat it after it has cooled down.”
A sweet feeling surged in Yun Bixue’s heart as she looked at the rice balls in the bowl. She loved these glutinous rice balls. Even if she didn’t mention it to Xie Limo, he would have found out about it while observing her closely. Because of this, she was deeply moved as warmth spread across her heart.
While they were waiting for the glutinous rice balls to cool down, Xie Limo switched on the TV. The news reported about the latest updates in Country E—it was about the attack by the ruffians earlier. After the initial investigation, there had been many casualties. Some of them were young masters from royal families, and it caused a slight stir amongst the superiors in Country E. They frantically sent out their forces to search and hunt for the culprits.
The reporter concluded, “Country E will be further investigating this ruthless attack. We won’t let a single suspicious person off… Country E will fight against any dark forces to protect all its citizens. We will defend the country’s safety and stability, and maintain world peace…”
After watching this news, Yun Bixue sighed, “They must be from reputable and influential families to be able to enter the gaming building. I never expected something like that to happen.”
Xie Limo scooped a glutinous rice ball and blew on it to cool it down. He sent it to Yun Bixue’s mouth and said, “Don’t just watch the news. Here, eat your dinner.” After playing for a long time and receiving such a fright, she must be starving.
Yun Bixue looked at the spoon and ate the rice ball. After taking a bite, the soup poured into her mouth. It tasted sweet, just like how she was feeling at the moment. However, she couldn’t help asking about the recent attack. “Limo, do you think this is a serious matter this time around?”
Xie Limo knew that if he didn’t answer, she would definitely have further questions. He carefully replied, “Those who died and were injured might be important people, but they’re also dispensable. The superiors of Country E have to be provoked first to convene and carry out an investigation. Through this opportunity, they could reclaim some of the royal families’ power and forces. While doing that, they could also suppress some royal families. As long as they’re accused of colluding with the dark forces, they’ll definitely be investigated and charged later. Taking over them would be a walk in the park.”
Yun Bixue’s shocked expression was evident as she listened to his explanation. “Why does it sound like Country E is taking advantage of these opportunities all the time?”
Xie Limo thought about the strict and decisive heir who had taken office recently, and he explained, “Since the president is new, his control over Country E’s political realm is still unstable. That’s why he’s gathering all his power through such turbulent times.”
