Hearing these words, Yun Bixue was struck by a horrific realization. Her face paled, and her body trembled all over. She couldn’t help feeling that she had been played for a fool. It seemed like everything she did that day was a joke.
Yun Bixue was devastated, and an excruciating pain pierced her heart. A multitude of complicated emotions surged within her, and she could no longer keep her tears from falling. She said with a choked voice, “So, when you saw me appear, you didn’t wake up on purpose? Even when I was defending you, you continued to pretend that you were unconscious?” All the bitterness she felt couldn’t be contained. She was truly shattered, and she couldn’t stop herself from getting upset.
Her devastation and pain, when she tried to fight for him, were there for everyone to see, and yet he pretended not to see?
Hearing Yun Bixue’s cracking voice, Xie Limo raised his head and saw her tears, and it felt as though a knife was stabbed into his heart. There was no way for him to explain himself under her reproachful eyes and the way she continued to bear with it, so he could only apologize over and over again. “Xue, please don’t cry. Don’t cry. I’m sorry, it’s all my fault.” His heart ached so much at the sight of her tear-filled face.
Yun Bixue raised her head towards the ceiling. She didn’t want to cry, so why was she so weak-willed? So what if she cried? She tried her best to hold her tears back, but she just couldn’t do it. The more she tried to stop it, the more tears leaked out from her eyes.
Xie Limo could only anxiously use his fingers to wipe her tears away. He tried to comfort her by saying, “Xue, don’t cry. It’s my fault… There won’t be a next time, okay? This won’t happen again.”
Frankly speaking, Xie Limo didn’t know how to comfort people nor had he comforted any women before. This was an urgent situation. He didn’t know what to do or say, so he could only say words of apology again and again.
What Xie Limo didn’t know was that the more he did this, the more Yun Bixue couldn’t control her emotions. She hated what he did that day, but she still couldn’t bear to say anything to him.
Why was he still so gentle to her? He even called her ‘Xue.’ Such an affectionate way of saying her name—how could she bear to scold him?
At that moment, Yun Bixue’s emotions were in disarray. Her mind was in a mess as well because of her crying. When she followed her head and said the first thing that came to her mind, she asked, “Limo, did you think that I was silly when I did that? Were you mocking me?”
Xie Limo froze as he wrapped his arm around her head. He held her head and kissed her tears away. His heart ached for her as he said, “What nonsense are you saying? Why are you so silly?”
Yun Bixue pushed Xie Limo away roughly. “Yes, I’m stupid because I care for you. Because of you, I can even throw my life away…” As she said this, tears started pouring out again.
Xie Limo pulled Yun Bixue into his embrace. “Okay, okay. It’s all my fault. I’m really sorry, my dear. I will do whatever you want, okay? Whatever you wish to have, I will give it to you. I will even pick the stars for you as long as you stop crying, and as long as you’ll forgive me…”
The more Xie Limo said, the more Yun Bixue cried. She was really scared that day, so with this crack in her emotions, all the bottled-up feelings were released as well.
She leaned on his shoulders, and with all her force, she punched his chest with both hands. “You bastard. How could you put yourself in danger? How could you do that? Don’t you know how worried I was? I was so scared… Knowing that something happened to you, I was ready to follow you… And that Wang Qianjin was a bastard. You bully me, and he bullies me too. You’re all bullying me…”
Yun Bixue could still feel the despair she felt that day. It was the kind of feeling one felt when you finally found a support, only for it to disappear suddenly. It was like a tidal wave had come crashing out of nowhere.
Fear still lingered in her heart, and her resolve had crumbled down. She was still glad that he was okay, so she couldn’t help leaning against him and cry her heart out.
