Xie Limo’s expression softened at Yun Bixue’s cheerful face. He stopped teasing her and wrapped her in his arms. Lowering his head, he stared straight into her eyes and asked again, “Tell me, do I control you too much?”
She shook her head, wiping her dirty hands on his body.
Xie Limo grabbed her hand and placed it on his lips, kissing it. He said tenderly, “Cheeky.”
Yun Bixue stuck out her tongue. However, she felt sweetness bursting in her heart—she knew that Xie Limo would still indulge in her no matter what she did.
The two of them took a shower after eating, and they changed into their sleepwear. Yun Bixue sat on the couch, sipping on her tea while calling Yun Dong. She instructed Yun Dong to attempt to get closer to Xu Miaodan and win over her trust. By constantly staying by her side, she would surely have a chance to get some information on the woman hidden in Xu Miaodan’s shadows.
After listening to Yun Bixue’s instructions, Yun Dong asked excitedly, “Miss Yun, is this my second mission?”
Yun Bixue giggled. “Yes, I guess.”
Yun Dong’s whoop and elated voice sounded from the phone. “I assure you that this mission will be a success.”
“Don’t underestimate the enemy and always be on your guard. That Xu Miaodan is not an easy feat. It never hurts to be too careful.” With such a cold aura, it would be hard to win Xu Miaodan trust.
“Don’t worry, Miss Yun. I will complete the mission, no matter how tough it is.”
Before sleeping, Yun Bixue finally replied to Su Lenghan’s text. She arranged to meet him the next day.
Su Lenghan stayed in his office and didn’t go home. In the past, he would look forward to going home after work. His parents would be waiting for him after preparing a meal back then. Regardless of how late it was, they would always leave the lights on, warming up his heart.
When he had just started his relationship with Meng Xinyan, he had also anticipated getting off work earlier to meet her. He would take her out on dates, and they would eat dinner at a restaurant.
Nowadays, once he thought about going back to the Su family’s villa, his heart would feel repulsed. Every time he went home, Meng Xinyan would either be throwing a tantrum or creating a ruckus. He didn’t even have time to catch his breath. Because of this, he spent most of his time sleeping in his office.
He had been holding his cell phone for an entire day, but he had yet to receive Yun Bixue’s reply. He laughed mockingly at himself. When she had been desperate back then, he didn’t even fork out that insignificant sum of six hundred thousand dollars. Now, the tables had turned, and not only that but what he was asking was an exorbitant amount of money. Why would she help him?
Su Lenghan was about to give up and abandon any hope in his heart when he heard his phone’s notification sound. When he saw the words ‘Yun Bixue,’ his heavy heart became lighter, and he could distinctly feel how his heartbeat was accelerating.
When he saw the contents of her reply, waves of emotions crashed over him. When everyone had refused to help the Su family, it was Yun Bixue who was willing to lend a helping hand.
The words ‘thank you’ would probably not be enough at this time.
Clutching his phone tightly, Su Lenghan bent down and rested his head on the table. No one must see his expression now.
That night, the news reported the Meng family’s recent updates. Chen Pei’s ugly acts had become known to everyone in Ning An City. It could be said that no matter where Chen Pei brought her son, the two of them would be despised.
Chen Pei’s son, in particular, had stolen a woman’s wallet on the streets today and was caught by the police. The boy did not show any remorse and even claimed that he was capable enough to steal it from her.
During the interview, the reporters asked him, “Why do you think that way?”
“My mother said before that as long as I have the capability, I can snatch anything for myself.”
These words stunned the reporters. Once again, Chen Pei became the hot topic of the day with everyone looking down on her.
In the hospital, Mother Su regained her consciousness and was slapping her leg several times. She cried out, “What happened to our Su family? How on earth did we bring in this Meng Xinyan? Lenghan, Lenghan, you don’t want her anymore, right? I support your decision, okay?”
