Yun Bixue cried silently for a long time. After a while, Xie Limo took her away. “Don’t feel sad. Mommy Lu would surely want to see you happy.”
“Yes, I want to do something myself so that Mommy Lu can rest in peace.”
Xie Limo nodded.
Afterwards, Xie Limo drove with Yun Bixue, and they arrived at a secret base in Ning An City. The Demon, the second-ranked assassin in the whole world, was locked up here.
Ever since the Demon had tried to escape from her prison, her bones had been pierced through to keep her in place. She truly regretted provoking Xie Limo every single day. The Xie family’s heir was indeed someone who couldn’t be taken down.
She had never thought of crying nor regretting her actions before, but now, she could only feel remorse and self-reproach.
Today, she finally met them, but it wasn’t Xie Limo—it was Yun Bixue.
She looked at Yun Bixue. She knew that she was Xie Limo’s wife, but she appeared far different from the rumors. The woman in front of her had the coldest and most intimidating eyes. Although she was pretty and calm, her iron-clad resolve was hard to ignore.
Yun Bixue went straight to the point. “Are you the Demon? Since you can’t talk now, you don’t have to answer me. I’m only here to do one thing, and that is to avenge Mommy Lu. Because of you, that fire almost burned me alive. Also, your intention was to kill Limo, so I cannot forgive you.”
As soon as the last word was spoken, Yun Bixue fired the gun in her hands at the Demon.
Yun Bixue continued, “Mommy Lu perished during that fire. That was my second point.” She fired once again at the Demon’s arm.
Yun Bixue kept on talking, and every word she said made the Demon feel that she was absolutely unforgivable.
All her shots landed on the Demon’s arms and legs.
Yun Bixue aimed her last shot at the Demon’s head. However, right before she pulled the trigger, she tightly pursed her lips, and the bullet grazed the Demon’s ear.
She didn’t kill her because it would dirty her hands.
In fact, the most important reason was that Xie Limo didn’t want Yun Bixue’s hands to be stained with fresh blood. She could leave everything to him, and he’ll handle it for her. He only wanted his wife to be happy.
The Demon was stunned deep down. She hadn’t expected that Miss Yun, the darling of a noble family in Ning An City, would possess such excellent shooting skills. She didn’t understand why Yun Bixue didn’t kill her, but she knew deep inside that her life didn’t have much value anymore.
In the end, Xie Limo released the Demon and sent her back to her assassin group, but she was eventually killed by her own comrades.
While in Xie Limo’s car on the way home, Yun Bixue felt very depressed. Her heart felt so heavy, and she couldn’t put this feeling into words. It felt as though she was incapable of ever smiling again.
Xie Limo turned the car around and drove to where their old villa was located.
Yun Bixue looked out of the window, and her heart jumped at the sight of the road. “This… This is the way home?” She no longer dared to say the word ‘home.’ Ever since their villa had been burned down, her heart would ache each time she thought of that word.
Xie Limo nodded. “Yes, I’m bringing you back to take a look.”
Yun Bixue didn’t want to go back at all, but Xie Limo still drove forward and didn’t change the direction.
After arriving there, Yun Bixue saw the villa in perfect condition. Its structure and surroundings hadn’t changed at all. It was as though the fire and explosion didn’t happen.
Yun Bixue’s mouth fell open. She was utterly speechless and didn’t know how to respond. Her tears fell as she covered her mouth with her hand. “Limo, is this for real? Our home is still here?”
Xie Limo hugged Yun Bixue and said, “I said that I won’t let you cry, but you still cried. This place looks the same as before. I’ll bring you inside to take a look.” He had hired the most capable team and got them to construct this villa for several days and nights. Coincidentally, they had put everything together today, so he brought her here to take a look.
