After hearing Ling Nanchen’s words, Xie Limo knitted his brows and grabbed his collar. He commanded, “Hurry up and tell me.”
Ling Nanchen’s neck was hurting from being choked. Looking at Xie Limo’s ashen expression, he could only reassure him. “Don’t worry, she’s fine. In fact, it’s a good thing that she unleashed all her pent-up energy. But still, you’re so cruel. You said you love her, but do you love her enough? Do you love her very much?”
“Love?” A glint flashed across Xie Limo’s exquisite eyes. He couldn’t answer whether he loved her or not.
“If she’s fine, you may leave.”
“I’ve prescribed some medicine for her. You can just collect it at the pharmacy. When she wakes up fully recovered, she would have already overcome her body’s limits, and her strength and agility would improve.”
After Ling Nanchen left, Xie Limo sat in front of the window with Yun Bixue. He gently caressed her face and whispered softly, “You’re always making me worried. What should I do with you, my dear wife?” As he spoke, Xie Limo lowered his head and kissed Yun Bixue’s forehead. He then gently took off her clothes and cleaned her body. After changing her into a fresh set of clothes, he covered her with the blanket.
He did all these in an extremely gentle manner, as though he was handling a precious object.
In her sleep, Yun Bixue felt like she had landed on warm clouds, and when she realized that Xie Limo was with her in this sea of clouds, she continued her deep slumber peacefully.
The following day, Ning An City declared a state of emergency. Even its citizens could feel the solemn atmosphere.
All the law enforcement officers were on standby for orders, and they didn’t dare to let their guard down. Every single checkpoint and juncture was guarded by the officers, and they were armed with high-powered guns as they patrolled their surroundings. Any suspicious individuals would be taken away.
For this reason, the citizens of Ning An City didn’t dare to go outside for leisure—they merely passed their days quietly. As expected, several gangs began to create trouble every day.
Hatchet Lin, a gang leader, was escorted into a car by two men wearing black suits. He was ‘invited’ to a villa somewhere.
Once they arrived at the villa, Xie Liu stared at Hatchet Lin, who stood before him. The former simply didn’t like what he saw, but he really needed people like him to show their worth. He asked, “Hatchet Lin, right?”
Hatchet Lin might have a wretched appearance, but he still kept up with the times. The moment he looked at the person in front of him and felt the aura emanating from his body, he knew that he couldn’t afford to offend this person. He nodded and bowed slightly as he replied, “Yes, yes. I am Hatchet Lin. Do you have any orders for me, sir?”
Xie Liu didn’t say a single word and just played with the dagger in his hands. He then threw the dagger casually towards Hatchet Lin’s face, piercing the cupboard behind the latter with a large slit.
Hatchet Lin’s Adam’s apple bobbed as he gulped. He had definitely experienced the feeling of looming death earlier, almost peeing his pants in fear. He had encountered countless people, and this sort of dark atmosphere was one that he should never ever trifle with.
“I have no orders, but Young Master Xie said that as long as you listen well and capture that person, all of you gang members and hooligans can continue your ways. If you don’t do your job well, oh, all of you would end up like that cupboard. Of course, you wouldn’t be satisfied with just that. I still have this…” When Xie Liu said the last sentence, he took out a gun with a silencer and aimed its barrel at the gang leader. He even made a few shooting gestures and blew on it.
In an instant, Hatchet Lin knelt down to show his obedience and loyalty. He would agree to everything Xie Liu said.
While Yun Bixue was sleeping, all the different forces in Ning An City began to get into their positions. They would strike stealthily and capture the people in the photo that had been sent to them earlier. This would lure out the masterminds who hired the assassins and force them to reveal their identities.
