Hearing those whispers, Yun Bixue understood what they meant. She actually didn’t think that Chen Pei had tried to steal today. However, she found it hard to believe that Meng Xinyan had tried to strangle her daughter. Even a vicious tiger wouldn’t eat its own offspring. What was she thinking?
She thought that although Su Lenghan might not have done a good job handling certain things, Meng Xinyan must have made him reach his limit if he didn’t allow her to return to their home.
Therefore, she guessed that this didn’t happen out of nowhere. It was highly likely that Meng Xinyan had done something unforgivable.
Yun Bixue clicked her tongue as she wondered about it. After a while, she hooked her arm around Xie Limo’s and said, “Let’s go. This has nothing to do with us.”
Xie Limo caressed Yun Bixue’s head and answered, “Okay!”
“Hubby, if I were to do something about this, will you think that I’m being silly again?”
“My dear, you wouldn’t do something like that now, would you?”
Yun Bixue pursed her lips. “You still know me best.” It was true. After experiencing so much, she long learned that she couldn’t be too kindhearted. Those evildoers didn’t deserve her attention—she should only be kind to those who were worthy. This was the way of survival.
After checking out and stepping outside, someone almost knocked into them while turning in their direction. Luckily, Xie Limo pulled Yun Bixue aside. They avoided that person and didn’t collide into her.
However, their groceries on the cart got thrown all over the ground.
Yun Bixue couldn’t help but feel annoyed and said, “Watch where you’re going!”
Xie Limo held Yun Bixue and took a quick glance at the vegetables on the ground. His exquisite eyes narrowed dangerously as he looked at the person in front of them.
Yun Bixue turned around to look at the person who almost bumped into her. It was Meng Xinyan!
Meng Xinyan looked at Yun Bixue with jealousy and clenched her jaw. “Yun Bixue, you were just standing there and blocked the path on purpose. You wanted to make fun of me, didn’t you?”
“Meng Xinyan, you’re crazy. I don’t want to argue with you. You should pay for all of these on the ground. These vegetables aren’t expensive, so they should only be worth a few dollars.” She would no longer be softhearted towards Meng Xinyan. A kind person would only be taken advantage of, and she finally understood that.
Meng Xinyan looked at the vegetables on the ground. A few dollars? Recently, she sold her old designer bags to sustain her lifestyle. The meager monthly allowance that Su Lenghan was providing her was simply not enough. A few dollars was, indeed, not very much, so what would happen if she refused to pay up?
“Yun Bixue, don’t abuse your status and malign me. You obviously didn’t hold these vegetables tightly that’s why you dropped them, and now you’re trying to get money from me? In your dreams! Even if I have money, I won’t give you a single cent!”
At this point, some of the passersby began to crowd around them. Yun Bixue didn’t want this matter to blow up. She wouldn’t care about Meng Xinyan anymore. She just felt that it wouldn’t be nice to waste these vegetables.
Without a word, she began to squat down to pick up the vegetables. The damaged tomatoes and persimmons made her heart ache. Although she was earning a lot now, she had had a rough childhood. She didn’t want to waste any food at all.
Xie Limo glared coldly at Meng Xinyan.
His glare made Meng Xinyan shiver. She was utterly afraid of Xie Limo. Being stared at by him like that, she felt her entire body freeze in fear.
Xie Limo didn’t waste his breath on her and just gave Su Lenghan a call. He said a few words quietly, and it wasn’t clear what Su Lenghan replied over the phone.
After ending the call, Xie Limo said coldly to Meng Xinyan, “Miss Meng, Su Lenghan said that if you don’t even cherish and value these vegetables that only cost a few dollars, he won’t give you any more allowance in the future. I’m sure Miss Meng wouldn’t mind too!”
Yun Bixue wanted to laugh. Her husband was really tackling her right where it hurt the most. She placed the vegetables in the cart and glanced at Meng Xinyan. The latter’s face was pale and was even turning a shade of green. She shivered and said, “No… No way. That’s impossible. You’re doing this on purpose…”
