Su Lenghan felt a pang in his heart as he wallowed in thoughts of Yun Bixue. Back then, he took her for granted. He didn’t understand all these and didn’t learn to cherish her. Now that he wanted to treasure everything he had, it was already too late. Nobody in this world would stay at the same spot to wait for you. Everyone would walk forward and move on.
He heard that Xie Limo treated her very well and pampered her. After Yun Bixue left him, she was now living comfortably. Thinking back on his chance meetings with Xie Limo and Yun Bixue, he sneered at himself as he recalled the words that Xie Limo had said.
As a man, he was a failure. He couldn’t see past a woman’s pretense to judge if they were good or bad. He didn’t know how to appreciate Yun Bixue back then, and someone had eventually realized her wholesomeness.
To rub salt into the wound, Meng Xinyan had revealed hints of her true personality back then, but he remained blind and chose to trust her. He had never tried to believe Yun Bixue.
Su Lenghan’s stomach suddenly ached, breaking into his thoughts. Out of sheer habit, he opened a small box on the dashboard and grabbed a medicine bottle. It was already empty, but he couldn’t bear to throw it away. This medicine was given by Yun Bixue in the past.
Back then, she cared about his health, and she would leave a bottle of stomach medicine in his office and his car. Nowadays, no one cared about him. No one cared if he was eating or sleeping well. No one urged him to get off work earlier, and no one comforted and cared for him as Yun Bixue did.
Meng Xinyan was concerned only about herself and cared only about how she felt. Even if he ignored her past mistakes, it was exhausting to be the only one putting in effort into the relationship.
He stared blankly at the Yun family’s gates. Even though he knew that Yun Bixue no longer lived here, looking at the villa’s gates allowed him to reminisce the times they spent together. That time, they were both single, and it still gave him a little consolation.
The loud ring of his cell phone brought Su Lenghan back from his trip down memory lane. He sighed as he picked it up. He could only return to reality and continue to slog away for the Su family.
In Country E, Yun Bixue was browsing through the main page of Ning An City’s website. Looking at the latest news, she learned that Meng Xinyan had been chased out of the Meng family’s home. Chen Pei’s swollen and bruised face had also been reported. Every day, the latest news would be about the Su and Meng families, and after reading them, she understood their current situations. For some reason, she felt a bit sentimental. No matter how badly Su Lenghan had treated her in the past, she still pitied him after seeing the kind of life he was living now.
Some reporters took a few pictures of Meng Xintong, and in one of them, she was on her way to work with a happy expression. In the accompanying article, it was mentioned that she completely ignored the things that happened to the Meng family. She also announced that she had been chased out of the house by Father Meng prior to the exposé, so she had nothing to do with the Meng family at all.
While Yun Bixue was busy looking at Ning An City’s website, Xie Limo placed a cup of milk on her desk. Seeing how she browsed through the news every day, he chuckled softly and asked, “Are you so thrilled looking through the news every day?”
“Of course. Right from the start, I thought that Meng Xintong had to be the next heir of the Meng family. Everything is progressing as planned, and I naturally have to keep a close eye on it.” The only thing she had not expected was that she would become friends with Meng Xintong. In the future, the two of them would definitely do more for each other.
“We traveled here to Country E so you can have fun. Don’t worry about these things. It won’t be too late if you read the news after returning home. Here, drink the milk first, or it’ll turn cold soon.”
Yun Bixue picked up the cup of milk and took a sip. The temperature was just right, and she felt touched by Xie Limo’s thoughtfulness. She turned around and hugged him. “Limo, do you think we’re on our honeymoon now?”
Xie Limo bent down and kissed Yun Bixue’s forehead tenderly. “It’s not a honeymoon. If it were, where do you want to go?”
“Anywhere is fine as long as we’re together.”
While they were sharing an intimate moment and basking in each other’s warmth, Yun Bixue’s phone rang. Yun Bixue picked it up—it was Yun Bilu, her younger sister.
Yun Bilu wanted to talk to her elder sister. She had been feeling downcast ever since Huang Yize left.
