The crowd of onlookers watched Meng Xinyan and continued their chatter. “Yeah, she’s just like her mother.”
“No way. Meng Xinyan is not so simple to deal with. She knocked into someone but still tried to reason and wash her hands off? What a bully!”
“Yeah, exactly. Look at Miss Yun. All those vegetables have been thrown, but she still picked them up to avoid wasting them. She’s totally unlike some person who disregards a few dollars. What’s worse, that person still thinks she’s Miss Meng.”
“That’s right. I wonder what Old Master Meng is thinking for allowing her to still use the ‘Meng’ surname.”
“It’s useless even if she has the ‘Meng’ surname. The Meng family has already removed her from their family tree. It’s Meng Xintong who’s calling the shots now in the Meng family.”
Meng Xinyan listened to those words and found them extremely irritating. What worried her the most was that Su Lenghan had threatened to stop giving her monthly allowance. Trembling, she pointed her finger at Yun Bixue. “Y-You— Both of you—”
Yun Bixue smacked Meng Xinyan’s hand away. “Meng Xinyan, what are you trying to do? Chen Pei was caught stealing from the supermarket. Didn’t you come here to look for her? Don’t waste your time now. If you keep delaying, Chen Pei will be taken away.”
Meng Xinyan was so surprised that her eyes almost popped out of their sockets. “What did you say?” Her voice raised an octave, and she appeared to be shouting.
Didn’t her mother say that she had bought too many things and couldn’t carry them herself? She also said that she had bought Meng Xinyan plenty of goodies, so she wanted to meet her here. She said that if Meng Xinyan arrived late, she wouldn’t buy them anymore since she couldn’t manage them alone.
She didn’t expect things to turn out this way. Her mother actually had the nerve to ask her to show up at such an embarrassing scene!
Without saying anything, Meng Xinyan pushed the crowd aside and ran away. She totally couldn’t be bothered with Chen Pei.
Yun Bixue looked at Meng Xinyan’s retreating figure and shook her head. How could their relationship be so shallow? She just couldn’t understand it.
Xie Limo placed his arm over her shoulder. Pushing the shopping cart, he said, “Let’s go. We have nothing to do with these people.”
Yun Bixue looked at Xie limo and thought that with him by her side, there was no reason to be upset because of a single incident. She hooked her arm around his and walked away from the supermarket.
Even though this was just an insignificant episode, Xie limo would still secretly deal with those who disrespected his wife or had taken advantage of her.
After they left, the crowd dispersed. However, Yun Bixue was captured picking up the vegetables on the ground, and those photos were published online. A new horde of people supporting Yun Bixue was born, and the number of her fans grew quickly.
Because of the movies that Yun Bixue invested in, those people who followed her closely became her fans too.
Half of Zi Bei City’s population also began to grow familiar with Miss Yun who hailed from Ning An City. Their impression of her changed, and they started to feel protective of her.
“She has such a high social status, but she doesn’t waste food. She personally squatted down to pick things up. It just shows that she has a great personality.”
“Of course. Didn’t you see how protective and fond the citizens of Ning An City are of her? Those who criticize her definitely has something against her.”
Yun Bixue wasn’t aware of the heated debate that had risen from that incident. She returned home and happily cooked together with Xie Limo in the kitchen.
Of course, Xie Limo cooked, and Yun Bixue watched at the side. She wasn’t allowed near the stove and hot oil.
She knew that Xie Limo was afraid that she might injure herself because of her clumsiness. Therefore, she couldn’t touch anything and could only accompany her husband by chatting with him.
Later, while they were eating their dinner, Yun Bixue felt as though they had returned to the earlier days of their relationship. It looked like nothing had changed and their home was still around.
However, every time she thought about Mommy Lu, her heart would ache so much. No matter how she consoled herself, she couldn’t undo Mommy Lu’s departure from this world.
After eating, Yun Bixue said to Xie Limo, “I want to visit Grandfather.”
“Okay, I’ll take you to visit Grandfather tomorrow.”
