Yun Bixue knew that Xie Limo referred to their home in Ning An City. After staying in Zi Bei City for a few days, her heart felt warm after reading that message. She missed home too. She hadn’t heard his voice in a long time.
After hesitating for a while, Yun Bixue called him. Xie Limo answered the call, “Hello, Madam?”
Yun Bixue almost cried the moment she heard his melodious and familiar voice. All the hard work she did was for him—to stay together with him. She was also worried about losing him.
In particular, after seeing that diamond ring that day, she had told herself that she didn’t care. However, her thoughts still ran wild. She wondered how it would be like in the headquarters of the Xie family, and how the rules of the thousand-year-old family would be enforced. Could she really spend a lifetime together with Xie Limo?
In addition to that, she had bumped into an odd old man a while ago. She recalled that the old man she had met on that rainy night might have disapproved of her staying together with Xie Limo.
She questioned herself about a lot of things. She had clearly told herself to trudge on bravely, but because she had fallen too deep in Xie Limo’s gentleness, it was hard for her to extricate herself from him.
Since she couldn’t lose him, she thought about calming herself down and trying even harder. Even if it would be too exhausting, she wanted the day when she would be worthy of him to arrive—the day when no one would object against their relationship when he brings her home.
Yun Bixue’s grip on her cell phone tightened. After composing herself, she said gently, “Limo, hubby, thank you.”
“Silly. How many times have I told you that I don’t want you to thank me? You’re still doing it. Are you tired? Don’t go to bed too late. Remember to drink a glass of milk before going to sleep. It can’t be cold, alright? You need to warm it up, or it’ll be bad for your stomach. Also, don’t kick your blanket away while sleeping. For breakfast, you must always have an egg. It’s nutritious and a good source of energy…”
Yun Bixue closed her eyes and listened to Xie Limo’s words silently. Hearing him care about her was such a pleasure. Her heart felt calmer and became more grounded because she knew that he was still by her side.
“Hubby, yes, I know. You shouldn’t go to bed too late as well. Don’t exhaust yourself. As soon as I’m done with my work here, I’ll go home.”
“Okay, don’t work too hard. If anything happens, I’m here for you. No one can take advantage of you, do you understand? I’ll give you a surprise when you come back.”
Once Yun Bixue heard that Xie Limo wanted to give her a surprise, she perked up immediately. “What surprise? Can I know in advance?”
“It won’t be a surprise anymore then. You need to come back if you want to find out.”
Yun Bixue smiled sweetly. “Okay, wait for me. Hubby, you’re not allowed to look at other women, or I’ll get jealous.”
Xie Limo chuckled softly. His deep voice reverberated through the phone, and the feeling was intoxicating. “My dear, you can come back and check on me. See for yourself if your husband is loyal enough.”
Yun Bixue blushed at Xie Limo’s teasing words. “In short, you can only look at me.” She thought that she must exercise her rights as Young Madam Xie. She had already thought things through—there’s no point in letting her imagination run wild. She must live in the present.
Xie Limo replied good-naturedly, “Okay, everything my dear says is correct.”
This phone call made their previous awkward atmosphere disappear, and they had returned to their normal state of being naturally sweet to each other.
In Country E, Yun Bilu dutifully attended her classes, but since Huang Yize was not around, her heart felt empty. She had grown used to having him by her side, and now, his absence made her feel uncomfortable and incomplete.
“Bilu, eat some more. Look at you! You’re not eating enough lately. You’ve lost so much weight.”
“Yeah, why aren’t you smiling anymore? Only Young Master Huang can save you.”
“I don’t even know when Young Master Huang will come back. It’s been such a long time. If he were to come back now, he would definitely be heartbroken to see how skinny Little Lulu has become!”
