Yun Bixue was concerned about her younger sister. After picking up the call, she asked at once, “Bilu, what happened? It’s already late. Why aren’t you sleeping yet?”
“Elder Sister, I can’t fall asleep. I want to talk to you.” Yun Bilu’s bleak voice sounded over the phone.
After hearing Yun Bilu’s voice, she sensed that her younger sister needed her. Her expression softened, and she gently answered, “Elder Sister is always here for you. If you need me, I’ll be by your side.”
Yun Bilu gave a weak chuckle. “Elder Sister, it’s already so late. I’m not disturbing you and Brother-in-law, am I?”
Yun Bixue raised her head and looked at Xie Limo’s expression. Despite the interruption, he remained calm and didn’t show any displeasure. He still looked elegant and alluring. She gently covered her mouth and said, “Not at all. Is there something bothering you that you can’t fall asleep?”
“Elder Sister, my idol left to go home. It feels like something’s missing this past few days. I feel so empty inside, and I feel drained whenever I’m doing something.”
Yun Bilu’s sighs and gloomy voice could be heard over the phone, and this made Yun Bixue slightly worried. However, thinking about Huang Yize’s identity, she felt conflicting emotions. She asked, “Bilu, do you like Huang Yize a lot?”
“Elder Sister, I don’t know if I really like him a lot, but I’m a hundred percent sure that I like him. When he’s beside me or hugging me, my heart races and almost jumps out of my chest. With him by my side, I feel on top of the world, but now that he has returned home, I’m very lonely.”
At that moment, it dawned on Yun Bixue that her younger sister had already grown very fond of Huang Yize. If she were to persuade her younger sister to forget about him now, she would only upset her. Naturally, Yun Bixue didn’t want to stress her out, so she chose to support Yun Bilu. “Don’t let your thoughts run wild. It’s not time for him to graduate yet, so he’ll surely return. You have to take care of yourself and love yourself more. That way, you can love him better.”
“Yes, I understand. Elder Sister, it was raining so hard when he left, but he still came to see me! I know he cares about me, so I’ll wait for him to come back. I can’t hear his voice though, so I’ll still miss him.”
Yun Bixue’s brows twitched. The night when it rained heavily was also the night when that shooting incident happened. Huang Yize left on the same night. Could someone had intentionally targeted Huang Yize during that time?
Yun Bixue felt fear welling up inside her when she considered this possibility. Thankfully, her younger sister was safe.
She also understood how it felt to miss someone. When her husband left for a business trip in the capital, she also missed him very much even though they spoke on the phone every day. Since her younger sister had just begun her relationship with Huang Yize, being away from each other would probably feel even more miserable.
After a moment’s hesitation, Yun Bixue asked, “Bilu, are you really not curious about his background?”
“Elder Sister, he said that he can’t tell me for now. He’s afraid that I’ll be in danger. I know that he’s protecting me, but I’m not scared. As long as I’m with him, I’m not afraid of anything. Also, I, Yun Bilu, am not a scaredy-cat,” Yun Bilu said in a confident voice.
Yun Bixue knew that her younger sister had been strong and courageous since she was a kid. However, the Black Dragon Gang would still make one tremble in fear. This wasn’t a group of people who ordinary people like them should get involved with. Could her younger sister do it?
The two sisters talked to each other for a long time before ending the call. Once Yun Bixue hung up, she held her phone tightly and lowered her head, thinking deeply about their conversation.
After washing Yun Bixue’s empty cup, Xie Limo walked over to her side. Noticing that she was still dazed and lost in her thoughts, a hint of worry flashed across his eyes. He stepped nearer to her and said, “My dear, it’s very late. We should sleep now.”
Without waiting for her answer, Xie Limo picked Yun Bixue up in his arms and walked towards the bedroom.
