Yun Bixue blinked her eyes and asked, “You heard those words before?”
Xie Limo nodded.
Yun Bixue started to sit up, and Xie Limo hurriedly placed a pillow behind her. As she sat and rested her head on his shoulder, she chuckled and said, “Let me tell you something. What I said earlier is a statement that came from my TV drama that was adapted from a game. The drama is top-rated and very popular, so everyone is familiar with its lines.”
Xie Limo pinched Yun Bixue’s nose. “My wife is so amazing. In that case, you don’t have any more problems while entering the entertainment industry, right?”
“Limo, Zhou Pingyu is actually a helper that you arranged for me a long time ago, isn’t he?” Yun Bixue pouted. She felt that her husband had already planned out many things for her, and on the contrary, she didn’t do much for him.
“You already know? I just didn’t want you to feel too tired. As for Senior Hong, he comes from the Wang family.”
Yun Bixue nodded. “When I went to see Senior Hong in Zi Bei City that day, I didn’t think too much about it when I met Wang Qianjin in his house. After that, I realized that Senior Hong belongs to the Wang family. Wasn’t it the Northern Xie and Southern Wang? Why did the Wang family hold some power in the North too?”
A stern look flashed momentarily across Xie Limo’s eyes. He explained to Yun Bixue, “The Northern Xie and Southern Wang were formed after a thousand years. Several centuries ago, the Xie family shifted its base out of Country A and controlled the North from outside the borders. However, because we haven’t placed our focus on Country A in recent years, other powers have, naturally, infiltrated in. This is inevitable. Besides, our Xie family has some hidden power in the South too.”
Yun Bixue seemed to only understand briefly. “So, the purpose of your trip to Ning An City is to remove those unfavorable forces, clean up the North, and take back the powers for the Xie family?”
“Yes, my dear. You got it right. Country A originally belongs to the Xie and Wang families. Even if history had changed the situation drastically, we cannot allow other forces to gain control. Also, it’s not as simple as it seems. You’ll understand in the future.”
Yun Bixue shook Xie Limo’s elbows and answered in a frustrated and dissatisfied voice, “Do you think I’m a child? Why do you think that I’ll understand only in the future?”
Xie Limo chuckled softly and held Yun Bixue’s hand. “Are you throwing a tantrum? Even if I explain to you now, you won’t be able to understand. Instead of understanding, it will just become a burden to you deep down. When the time is ripe, I will inform you, alright? Come on, smile now. You’re not pretty if you don’t smile.”
Yun Bixue smacked Xie Limo’s hand away and turned around, pretending to ignore him. He kept saying such things. She understood that Xie Limo meant well, but she wanted to do something for him and share his burden. She didn’t like to be kept in the dark with everything.
Xie Limo looked at Yun Bixue’s upset figure and lowered his head to peer at her. However, she turned her head away, so he couldn’t see her expression. He could only hug her around her shoulders from behind. “Are you really angry?”
Yun Bixue struggled and wanted to leave, but Xie Limo hugged her tightly. “My dear, do you want to leave?”
“Hmph! You don’t tell me anything at all. I want to go outside to cheer myself up.”
“My dear, you know that I won’t allow you to leave. You must stay here by my side even if you’re angry.”
Yun Bixue turned her head angrily and looked at Xie Limo. “You’re too bossy!”
Xie Limo was neither angry nor frustrated. Instead, he grabbed Yun Bixue’s hand and placed it on his chest. “My dear, it’s because you’re inside here. Based on my capabilities, I can find you no matter where you go. If you don’t want me to hold you back, you should stay by my side obediently. You know how important you are to me. Don’t say such things, okay?”
