Yun Bixue looked at Xie Limo’s unmoving face and placed her chopsticks down before tugging the corners of his mouth with her hands.
Xie Limo pulled her hand down and chuckled. “I really cannot do anything to you!” His resignation and adoration resonated in his melodious voice.
Yun Bixue leaned into his embrace and spoke softly, “Laughing means you’re happy, so you can’t frown anymore, okay?” Although her husband radiated elegance even when he wasn’t laughing, she still preferred his warm look.
Xie Limo lightly pinched Yun Bixue’s face. “Since when did I do that?”
Yun Bixue thought about it. Her husband was always gentle and attentive. Of course, there were times that he would get angry, especially when she made mistakes such as injuring herself or placing herself in harm’s way.
That time when the explosion happened, he was enraged, so she knew that her husband had a temper as well. That was why she must take good care of herself.
“That’s true. But you didn’t eat much today, so I can tell that you’re not in a good mood.”
Xie Limo lowered his head and pecked at Yun Bixue’s lips. In a voice filled with adoration and heartache, he said, “I’ll eat more, so you have to eat well too.” He could tell from the dishes she cooked today that all of them were his favorites. His wife was, indeed, very attentive to him.
He had always known about her goodness, that was why he wanted to give all the best things in the world to her. After a long time of spending their days together, her figure had already been carved in his heart.
Later, when it was time for them to sleep, Xie Limo was about to cuddle Yun Bixue when he received an emergency call from Xie Liu—the Demon escaped from prison.
Xie Limo’s expression turned frosty.
Seeing Xie Limo’s face, Yun Bixue got off the bed and went to his side. “What’s the matter? Did something happen?”
Looking at Yun Bixue’s bare feet, Xie Limo carried her and placed her on the bed. “The floor is cold. I need to settle something for a while, but I’ll be back as soon as it’s done. Be good and sleep now.” After saying this, he tucked her in.
“I want to go with you.”
“You can’t. You need to sleep, alright? Didn’t I say that taking care of yourself is helping me take the weight off my shoulders?”
After putting on his coat, he left in a rush.
Even though Yun Bixue was worried, it was true that she was feeling tired lately. She tried waiting for Xie Limo by reading a book, but after an hour of waiting, she fell asleep while leaning on the pillows.
Xie Limo arrived at the prison and looked around, his expression turning cold as he heard the details from Xie Liu.
“Young Master Xie, based on my initial investigation, she had some outside help. It was probably ordered by someone. There were a few suspicious people like the person who delivered the food and the janitor… This janitor has always been cleaning within a few hundred meters. I suspect he was sent here to observe…”
Xie Limo looked at the night sky and instructed in a stern voice, “Interrogate secretly and don’t alert anyone. Inform Ning An City and the Xie family members to do a manhunt and arrest the Demon. Order the political department and the street gangs to close off all the checkpoints. No one is allowed to enter or leave the city. Investigate them carefully…”
After hearing Xie Limo’s words, Xie Liu hurriedly left to carry out his orders at once. Because of the Demon’s escape, the departments in Ning An City were mobilized, plunging the city into chaos.
It was a night that was fated to be filled with misfortunes. No one knew that this night would be a turning point in Ning An City’s history.
