Yun Bixue raised her head and looked at Xie Limo. After seeing the dark and faint glint in his exquisite eyes, her heart trembled. She knew that he wasn’t lying.
Xie Limo was domineering. She felt lucky that she loved him. She recalled what Xie Liu had said before—the other women who were in love in Young Master Xie would feel miserable since they couldn’t have him.
And the woman whom Young Master Xie loved would feel either opposite extremes—she could be miserable or utterly blissful.
The difference between these two extremes was whether that woman loved Young Master Xie or not.
She knew that Xie Limo loved her and that she belonged in his heart. Being pampered and coddled by him, it was fortunate that she loved him, that was why she could enjoy such happiness.
Sometimes, she thought that if a woman was being loved by someone like Xie Limo, she would surely be moved by him too. How could she not like such a man back?
It was just like her heart. Regardless of how cold and broken it had been, it slowly warmed up and melted after being protected and cared for by him.
She didn’t know why, but with Xie Limo staring at her, Yun Bixue’s heart began to pound. She opened her mouth and wanted to refute, but she couldn’t say a single word.
After some time, Yun Bixue lowered her head. Pinching the corners of her shirt, she finally said, after feeling conflicted, “Ever since you pulled me out of my misery, I’ve wanted to spend my whole life with you.”
Yun Bixue’s low and gentle voice crept into Xie Limo’s ear. She sounded so soft, and it stirred his heart and brightened up his mood. Those words made him extremely happy. “Sure, my wife will stay with me for the rest of my life.”
Xie Limo paused for a moment then continued, “Since you’ve decided to spend your life with me, you have plenty of time to understand what I do and everything else about the Xie family, don’t you? There’s no hurry!” He was truly worried that he would cause his wife to feel too burdened.
Some time back, she had overwhelmed herself in order to share his burdens and strengthen herself. As a result, her body was worn out. If she were to learn more and force herself further, he couldn’t even imagine how she would push herself, given her personality.
In that case, it would be better for him not to let her know. He wanted her to live life in a carefree manner, without any stress and burden.
Later that night, the two of them went to the supermarket to buy groceries. They were discussing what to buy for their dinner.
“Hubby, we haven’t had tomato fried eggs in a long time. Let’s eat have these for dinner, okay?” Yun Bixue asked Xie Limo as she stood in front of the tomatoes and picked several of them.
“Okay, you want to eat what I cooked, right? I’ll cook it for you tonight.”
After picking two of the largest and ripest ones, she hooked her arm in Xie Limo’s. He pushed the cart, and the two of them continued walking. In fact, Yun Bixue liked the feeling of walking and buying ingredients together for their meal.
Just as the two of them were about to go to the checkout aisle, they heard an argument coming from the makeup shelf in front of them.
Yun Bixue wasn’t a nosy and curious person, so she didn’t go over to take a look. However, she heard a woman’s cry for help, and the voice sounded familiar to her.
Yun Bixue’s paused in her steps. When she turned around, she saw a crowd of people talking among themselves.
“Isn’t this Mistress Chen? Has she started to shoplift now? Tsk, tsk. She still pretends to look like a rich madam. So disgusting. She’s even here to steal things. What a disgrace!”
“I don’t know anyone like that. I heard that she had stolen several times already, but since her daughter was married into the Su family, their backing had allowed her to bail out. Now that Meng Xinyan had been chased out by the Su family, let’s see who can bail her out now.”
“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree indeed. I heard that Meng Xinyan even tried to strangle her own daughter. The Su family even refused to see her now!”
“Well, what do you expect? With Chen Pei as her mother, there’s no way Meng Xinyan could be nice!”
