Xie Limo switched off the air conditioner and rolled down the car window. He gazed far away into the distance. Even though he was filled with worry, he managed to calm himself down and think about things rationally. In Ning An City, he could definitely protect Yun Bixue and ensure that she wouldn’t be bullied nor harassed by reporters.
However, Zi Bei City was not Ning An City. Even if he could use his influence to protect her now, what would happen in the future when she was in a place he couldn’t reach? Would he have to do that as well?
He was well aware that one couldn’t grow without experiencing setbacks. If he continued to protect her in this manner, when she came to the Xie family headquarters, she probably wouldn’t be able to withstand the formidable millennium-old family.
Ever since she became his wife, he had never given her a chance to retreat. No matter what, he would take her with him as he moved forward, and he would never ever let her go.
Thinking about it, Xie Limo got out of his car and walked to the railings. With both hands in his pockets, he sank into deep thought while looking at the long winding river. Bleak darkness was reflected in his beautiful eyes as his emotions tossed and turned.
At that moment, he had made up his mind. He would protect her from behind and let Zi Bei City be her first training ground to spread her wings.
They had members of the Xie family and Zhou Pingyu at Zi Bei City, so she wouldn’t face any life-threatening dangers. However, she would have to resolve other situations on her own.
She would only be able to grow and face future challenges when she would personally handle such unpredictable situations and learn from them. Her character would grow stronger and become more resilient as well.
Although his mind had told him this, he was also aware that his feelings could easily gain the upper hand when it came to Yun Bixue. He couldn’t help but worry and be enraged.
Zi Bei City was quieter at night, unlike the clamor in the day. Accompanied by Xie Shiyi, Yun Bixue entered the police station and asked for the troublemakers to be taken out for her to interrogate.
Li Erkong looked at Yun Bixue insolently while chewing on a stalk of grass. He tilted his head towards her and spat out, “You’re that Yun Bixue? Heh. You’re nothing much… Bah…”
Xie Shiyi said in a threatening voice, “You have no right to speak to Young Madam like that.”
“Haha! Young Madam? That Xie Limo’s wife? Haha! He can’t touch Zi Bei City.”
Xie Shiyi was about to retort when Yun Bixue raised her hand to stop her. Yun Bixue spun the high chair around and crossed her legs. “Tell me who is the mastermind. If you tell me, I will let you go. If you don’t, there will be consequences.”
Li Erkong’s eyes widened in disbelief. “What are you going to do? Beat me up? This is the police station. Besides, if you’re talking about fighting, a woman like you is definitely no match for me. I should have thrown a wooden block at you during that time. You dare to threaten me just because you’re from a f*cking noble family? I’m not scared of you. Yeah, let me see what you’re capable of. Not saying that there’s someone behind me, but even if there is, I wouldn’t tell you.” Li Erkong had lived in this kind of society for a long, long time. As that kind of man, he had seen everything there was to see. A woman trying to scare him? It was a fool’s dream.
However, he quickly learned that Yun Bixue wasn’t just all words.
A cold glint flashed across Yun Bixue’s clear eyes. Swinging her legs, she stood up with her high heels and stepped forward. Using the force she used from stepping up, she leaped and lifted her leg to land a powerful kick on Li Erkong’s face.
Li Erkong staggered backward and fell flat on the floor instantly. Stunned, he raised his hand and held his numbing face with an astonished look. This… This woman’s an expert. She’s so powerful!
