Yun Bixue’s attention was focused on the news. The accident happened on the intersection just outside the border of Zi Bei City. The roads there were dangerous, and a large number of car crashes had happened there in recent years, that was why it was not a surprise that such an accident occurred in this kind of weather.
She hoped that the rescue team could find those missing people as soon as possible. She wished that all of them would be safe.
Just as she was about to switch the channel, the footage aired a cell phone that had been dropped on the ground. It was right beside the railings that had been damaged by the impact. That cell phone… looked familiar. Yes, her eyes were definitely not playing tricks on her. Without a doubt, it was Xie Limo’s phone.
She was very familiar with his phone because she sometimes played games on it. She even attached a little red ribbon on his phone.
Yun Bixue didn’t dare to think about anything. She felt her head spinning. Her vision dimmed as her heart began to pound loud enough to drown out all other sounds.
No, no way… At that moment, Yun Bixue only felt agony. Her heart throbbed and ached. A wide range of emotions overwhelmed her in an instant—panic, pain, fear, anguish…
When Xie Shiyi returned and stepped into the living room, she immediately noticed that something was amiss with her Young Madam. Her entire body was shrouded with a quiet and grave atmosphere. She asked, “Young Madam?”
Xie Shiyi’s voice caused Yun Bixue to snap out of her shock, and she hurriedly picked up her cell phone on the table. She was shaking all over. With her clumsy movements, she couldn’t even grab her cell phone.
Xie Shiyi’s suspicions were confirmed—there was definitely something wrong with Young Madam. She dashed over at once and said, “Young Madam, are you trying to pick up your phone?” She helped Yun Bixue and placed the phone in her hands.
“Yes… I want to call Limo.” Even though Yun Bixue forced herself to remain composed, her hands still trembled uncontrollably. She had never felt this way before. She should stay calm, but her body refused to cooperate.
In a split second, she dialed Xie Limo’s number, but to no avail. She then dialed their home’s phone number, and Mummy Lu answered, “Hello?”
“Mummy Lu? It’s me, Bixue.” Yun Bixue was all choked up as she felt a lump in her throat.
“Bixue? My child, how are you in Zi Bei City? You haven’t called home in such a long time. Young Master Xie is thinking of you all the time… You have to take care of yourself—”
“Mummy Lu, is Limo home?” Yun Bixue’s voice cracked as she asked this question. She was dreading to hear the answer—absolutely terrified to listen to it and confirm the devastating news.
“Young Master Xie was so worried about you. The rain was so heavy, but he still went to Zi Bei City to see you…”
After ending the call, Yun Bixue felt that all the strength in her body had been completely drained—she couldn’t even stand straight anymore. Her legs gave way beneath her, and she collapsed straight on the floor. If Xie Shiyi hadn’t caught her, she would’ve fallen flat and gotten injured.
“It’s Limo, it’s really Limo…” Yun Bixue repeated this sentence over and over again. She couldn’t stop the tears from trickling down her face. At that point, she truly felt desolate. It was as though her pillar of support had suddenly collapsed and the world crashed down on her.
If she really lost him, what’s the point of all her hard work?
“Young Madam, what’s wrong? What happened? Young Madam, you have to stay calm. Didn’t you say that you’ll deal with all matters rationally?” Xie Shiyi had no idea what had happened, but seeing Young Madam’s face and the emotions written all over her body, it was clearly not a small matter.
After hearing Xie Shiyi’s words, Yun Bixue hurriedly dried her tears. She turned to the TV and continued watching the news. After a while, it was reported that there hadn’t been any progress with the search and rescue operation. A resolute glint flashed across her eyes. It was good news that no one had been found yet. She could possibly be wrong!
She stood up immediately and clutched Xie Shiyi’s hands tightly. She said, “Let’s go to Road 606 in Zi Bei City.” She wanted to look for him personally.
“Yes. I, your subordinate, will follow wherever Young Madam wants to go.”
