Yun Bixue’s words allowed Xie Limo’s heart to finally find a place to shore on. His magnificent eyes shone enchantingly, deeply gazing at Yun Bixue as though he never had enough of her.
He caressed her hair affectionately with gentle strokes, and then lowered his head to give the crown of her hair a searing kiss.
Yun Bixue could feel that her husband’s mood had improved at that moment, despite not hearing anything from him. “Limo, the stars should be out now. Let’s go and take a look.” This season had cooler nights, and the stars shone especially bright in the night sky.
The two of them went to the loft, and they both held hands as they laid on a blanket. They could see the stars once they raised their heads.
The stars were indeed brighter under the dark sky. Yun Bixue felt like she could pick them if she lifted her hands.
While looking at the sky filled with stars, she said to Xie Limo, “Hubby, the stars tonight are beautiful. They’re just like what I saw when I was young. I didn’t have parents, and it was just my younger sister and me. Our friends would mock us, and the people at home would sneer at us too. During those moments, I would miss my parents, and I miss them even more when I see children who were adored by their parents. My younger sister and I only had each other…”
Xie Limo had never heard about Yun Bixue’s past from herself. It seemed too painful, and he hated that he couldn’t run to embrace, love, and indulge her past self.
Yun Bixue tilted her head and met Xie Limo’s gaze. Such magnificent eyes, just like the night sky she used to look at when she was young. They moved her incredibly, and it felt like they lit up her lonely heart.
“I’m no longer sad. Mummy Lu took great care of my younger sister and me. She brought us to the balcony to stargaze and pointed out to us which was Altair, Virgo, and Big Dipper… She even told us that people become stars when they die, and that the two brightest stars were our parents. Every time I missed them, I would wait until it was dark and look up into the sky. I felt contented doing that, and sometimes, I would fall asleep while stargazing… When I grew up, I eventually figured out that Mummy Lu just made it up. Nonetheless, I was still grateful because I had something to hold on to and be happy about.”
After speaking, Yun Bixue shifted her body and leaned into Xie Limo’s embrace. “That’s why, hubby, choose a star too. I’m sure that it would be your younger sister.”
After a pause, Yun Bixue continued, “Hubby, compared to the Cowherd and the Weaver, I’m contented that I can see you every day. I feel really blessed.”
“What a silly lady. My silly wife,” Xie Limo replied. However, the strange thing was, his heart felt lighter upon hearing what she said.
After that night, the couple had a silent agreement to never bring up the photo again. Instead, they would keep his younger sister in their hearts. By not mentioning it, a person wouldn’t wallow in sorrow, and it would help one move forward.
When it was late in the night, Xie Limo asked Yun Bixue about the person who told her about the photo, and the latter told him about what happened earlier in the day.
Xie Limo told her not to worry. With the photo that Yun Bixue provided, he had already ordered the subordinates of the Xie family to find the said person.
Seeing the murderous glint in her husband’s eyes, she insisted, “Hubby, if you find her, hand her over to me.” Yun Bixue fully intended to settle the old scores with Chu Fei’er.
