Yun Bixue froze after hearing Xie Limo’s words. She tried to check his missed calls, but she couldn’t find her cell phone. She rummaged through her bag and pockets, and even searched around her, but it was nowhere to be found.
Yun Bixue blinked. “I don’t know where my cell phone is. Could I have lost it?” After speaking, she was about to kneel on the floor and upend the contents of her bag.
A glint flashed across Xie Limo’s eyes. He grabbed Yun Bixue’s arm to interrupt her and said, “Don’t panic. Think about it carefully. When was the last time you used your cell phone and where did you put it? Why was it turned off? You probably didn’t drop it. Did you leave it somewhere?” He understood his wife well enough to know that she wasn’t someone who just left her things everywhere.
Yun Bixue slapped her forehead and thought about her previous actions before this. “I remember now. I think I left it in the office.”
After she finished speaking, Xie Limo grabbed Yun Bixue’s arm and walked into the elevator to go to her office.
At that time, only a handful of people were working overtime, so the whole building was quiet.
As soon as they stepped inside the office, they saw that the cell phone was indeed left on her desk. Yun Bixue picked it up and saw that the phone was fine. When she turned it on, a notification for several missed calls appeared at once.
She sneaked a glance at Xie Limo and stuck her tongue out playfully behind his back.
Xie Limo hung his coat by the side and slid a hand into his pocket. He walked towards Yun Bixue and took her phone. “Don’t turn off your cell phone next time.”
Yun Bixue nodded meekly. She turned off her cell phone earlier because she was distressed. It was impossible for a person to be in a good mood all the time—even she had some moments where she felt stressed.
Xie Limo lowered his head and carefully observed her expression. After a while, he asked, “Did anything happen today?”
“Nothing.” Yun Bixue shook her head, but she suddenly recalled the old man earlier. “Oh, there was this old man with a walking cane just now. He’s about this height, and he’s wearing deep red oriental clothes. He was bossy and kept sizing me up. He even said things like how could I let my husband cook for me… Anyway, it was very weird. Do you know him?”
While she was saying this, she ran towards the window and looked down. Other than the pouring rain, neither the car nor the old man was there.
“Oh, where did he go? He was just there.”
Xie Limo walked to Yun Bixue’s side and looked out as well, trying to find the person she had just described before saying, “Just ignore him if you see him again.”
Yun Bixue tilted her head and asked in a suspicious voice, “Does he know you? He’s not your grandfather?”
A dangerous glint flashed across Xie Limo’s elegant eyes. “He’s not, and you don’t have to bother with him.”
“Okay.” Yun Bixue didn’t ask him any further because she knew that if Xie Limo wanted to tell her, he would’ve told her. If he didn’t want to say it, she wouldn’t ask as well.
Nonetheless, she guessed that the old man had something to do with the Xie family.
It was a good thing that there were fresh towels in the bedroom beside the office. After drying themselves up, both of them packed up and drove back home.
As soon as they arrived home, Yun Bixue took a shower and laid on the bed. Her thoughts ran wild as she fiddled with the blanket in her hands.
Xie Limo came out in a bathrobe and saw Yun Bixue lost in her thoughts. He got on the bed and wrapped her in his embrace. He kissed her and asked, “What are you thinking about that got you so distracted?”
“Limo, since Snow Cloud Group entered the entertainment industry, and the drama’s shooting has recently wrapped up, I want to go to Zi Bei City and set up a press conference. Zi Bei City has always been the go-to place for promoting dramas.” Aside from this, she wanted to take this opportunity to reflect and take a breather as well. Being in a dazed state for a long time was bad for her relationship with Xie Limo anyway.
