Zhou Zinan’s smile grew increasingly bright. Rubbing the back of his head, he said, “Thank you, Elder Sister Yun.”
“Why are you still thanking me? I treat you like my younger brother too.”
Zhou Zinan turned slightly red, and he lowered his head in embarrassment.
“Zinan, I heard from a lot of our female colleagues that you blush easily whenever you talk to them. That won’t do. Zifu is probably waiting for a sister-in-law to be introduced to her.”
At Yun Bixue’s teasing, Zhou Zinan became even more embarrassed. “Elder Sister Yun, I haven’t thought that far ahead yet. I’m just waiting for my elder sister to be released. It’s enough for me that we’ll be reunited.”
“You’re practical indeed. When I meet a nice lady, I’ll introduce her to you.”
“Elder Sister, I—”
“Go on and get busy. It’s already set. If you meet a lady you like here in the company, remember to pursue her with confidence.”
Zhou Zinan let out a sheepish laugh. He truly felt embarrassed. Nonetheless, he understood clearly in his heart that Elder Sister Yun meant well. She sincerely wanted to help him.
After settling everything, Yun Bixue’s mood brightened up. Sometimes, one would experience some depressing moments in life. However, once she thought about the wonderful things in her life, she would cheer up once again.
Indeed, having the right mindset was still a crucial thing.
Later, when Yun Bixue and Xie Limo were having dinner, Yun Bixue mentioned the text message from Su Lenghan.
Xie Limo was about to remove the bones from the piece of fish for Yun Bixue when his hand paused for a moment. He held the piece of fish in front of her mouth and said, “My dear, if you want to help him, I’ll support you. If you don’t, I’ll do the same thing. Just do whatever you want, okay?”
Chewing the piece of fish in her mouth, she asked, “Hubby, aren’t you jealous? He’s my ex.”
Xie Limo’s exquisite brows twitched, and a gentle glint flashed across his eyes. “Do you think I’ll be jealous?”
Yun Bixue’s eyes searched his face, looking for cracks on his peaceful expression. She pursed her lips, then said, “No, you won’t get jealous at all.”
Xie Limo removed a grain of rice from the corner of her mouth and chuckled softly. “You’re saying such willful things again.” After saying this, he sighed. “My dear, you know that I’m a normal man. I’m not a divine being.”
Yun Bixue’s eyes lit up. Raising her head, she looked at Xie Limo’s eyes and laughed teasingly. “My husband feels jealous too!”
Xie Limo shook his head resignedly. “You’re so happy just because I feel jealous.”
“Yes, because it just shows that you care about me. Don’t worry. Even if I were to help Su Lenghan, I wouldn’t do it if I don’t get something in return. I will consider it from a business point of view.” She really thought that Su Lenghan was rather pitiful. In fact, she no longer cared about the past. However, when she thought about how he had turned a blind eye to her initial request for six hundred thousand dollars during her desperate times, her heart turned cold.
That was why she decided that she wouldn’t be helping him unconditionally.
Xie Limo’s brows twitched. “In which aspect does my wife think that I don’t care? You’ll find out soon tonight.”
Yun Bixue hurriedly laughed it off. “My husband cares about me the best.” After a long time, she realized that her husband was sometimes high and mighty, just like a heavenly being. Sometimes, he would say sweet nothings as well, making him seem like a normal person.
She liked him so much that she couldn’t refuse him.
Xie Limo lowered his head and noticed that he could see the bottom of Yun Bixue’s bowl. He said softly, “Have less rice and eat more vegetables. You shouldn’t be picky.”
“Limo, everyone describes you as extraordinarily exquisite, divinely elegant, and mysterious, but I think…”
Xie Limo raised his brows. “You think what?”
Yun Bixue’s eyes curved into crescents. Tilting her head, she hesitated and answered, “I think my husband has the potential to become an old woman.”
Without any warning, Xie Limo lunged at Yun Bixue and hugged her. Pressing his body against her, he kissed her and asked, “So, you think I control you too much?”
“It tickles! I won’t say anymore, I won’t say anymore! My hands are dirty!” Yun Bixue giggled and turned her head to the side to avoid him. Her laughter burst out uncontrollably as her body felt ticklish all over.
