Xie Limo walked to the living room. After boiling some water, he added some cold water to it, making sure that the temperature was alright. He then poured a glass of it and took it back to the bedroom for Yun Bixue. “The temperature is just right. Don’t drink too much before you sleep.”
Yun Bixue’s eyes met Xie Limo’s gentle and warm gaze, and her heart stirred. He treated her so well that she felt afraid that she was just dreaming. After drinking a few mouthfuls of water, she pulled the blanket over them and wrapped it around Xie Limo’s neck.
“What’s wrong?” Xie Limo asked in a worried voice. He gently pushed her away as he lowered his head and looked carefully at her expression.
Yun Bixue hid her face. Her eyes were wet with tears, and her heart was brimming with conflicting emotions. She didn’t know if she felt bitter or moved—she couldn’t tell them apart. All she knew is that her heart felt exceptionally fragile after spending several days and nights in a foreign country. She just wanted to hug him and lean against him. She would only feel at ease after hearing his heartbeats.
Xie Limo was at a loss about what to do. He didn’t know what happened to Yun Bixue, but it was useless to feel flustered, so he could only pat her back as though he was consoling a child.
“I only went to the study to review something. I’m just here by your side, alright? I didn’t leave, so don’t be afraid now.”
Yun Bixue wailed, “I’m not afraid. You’re the one who didn’t rest well.”
With that sentence, Xie Limo was struck with a sudden realization. She had actually been feeling sorry for him. He sighed softly to himself and said, “Okay, from now on, I will rest properly. I’ve been like this since I was young, and I’m used to having only a few hours of sleep. Don’t worry anymore, okay?” While he was saying this, he lowered his head and tipped Yun Bixue’s chin up with his finger. Resting his forehead against hers, their eyes met. This way, she could see every single expression clearly.
Yun Bixue blinked and giggled. Every time she felt dispirited, she would cheer up as long as he consoled her. Unknowingly, he had grown more and more important to her. She had become used to having him around, so she panicked and felt disappointed when she didn’t see him after waking up earlier. This was something that she had never felt before, but tonight, this feeling emerged in her heart.
After hearing Xie Limo’s words, she couldn’t imagine how he had spent his childhood. Did he have a hard time? Deep down, she was worried, but she decided to keep her concerns to herself and not bother him any further. She would definitely have a chance to find out in the future.
Xie Limo removed his shirt again and laid on the bed. After covering both of them with the blanket, he wrapped her in his embrace and whispered in her ear, “Did I wear you out tonight? Does it hurt?” He had been thoroughly intense earlier, and he couldn’t hold himself back when it comes to her and certain things.
Yun Bixue naturally knew which body part Xie Limo was referring to. Her cheeks flushed red, and she hurriedly pulled the blanket over her head. Thinking about their passionate love earlier and those moments filled with lustful desire, she felt her face burning hot.
Xie Limo chuckled softly. His wife was still easily embarrassed.
Underneath the blanket, Yun Bixue grumpily said, “You’re laughing at me.”
Xie Limo composed himself and replied warmly, “Okay, I’m not laughing at you. Don’t hide anymore, or you’ll have a hard time breathing. If you fall sick, where would I find such a wonderful wife?”
As he said this, Xie Limo yanked the blanket away from Yun Bixue, revealing her small blushing face. His heart stirred while watching her, and a fiery hot feeling surged through him. He took a steadying breath to suppress the fire inside him and kissed Yun Bixue’s cheek instead. Even though he wasn’t satisfied, he didn’t want her to feel overly tired. He could only rein in his desire and let her sleep.
Yun Bixue pouted and said, “Limo, hubby.”
Xie Limo patted her head. “I know you’re tired. I won’t torture you anymore. Go to sleep now. Don’t worry, I’m just here beside you. I won’t go anywhere.”
