Looking at the two people who were excited and acting a little rash, Xie Limo rubbed at his forehead. He felt as though he had a headache. One was an elderly man while the other was his lover—how could he soothe and reassure both of them at the same time?
“Grandfather, Xue, both of you need to calm down. Don’t be rash. Think about it carefully. If you were to go now, it would be dark by the time you arrive there, so you won’t be able to do anything right away. Besides, you don’t have any clues, so your search would be inefficient and time-consuming. Without any clues and a proper plan, you wouldn’t be able to find anything as well, right?”
Old Master Yun was carrying his clothes and packing his luggage as he prepared to leave. Hearing Xie Limo’s words, he replied without a second thought, “Even if that’s the case, I need to go and take a look before I can be at ease. If not, I won’t be able to fall asleep here either. I’m already at this age, so if I can find my son and daughter-in-law alive, I’ll be so happy that I will be able to live a few more years.”
While Xie Limo and Old Master Yun were having their exchange, Yun Bixue was looking at the map of Xiangnan Town. “Limo, I want to drive and take Grandfather with me.” As Yun Bixue spoke, her eyes twinkled brightly, as though lighting up the night sky. Within that gaze was also the burning flames of hope.

“What I’m trying to tell you is to first send someone to look for clues at Xiangnan Town and investigate what happened that year. After that, when you have a lead, we can go and find them. Don’t you want that?”
Xie Limo wanted to pamper his wife if it was something she wished to do. Even if he knew the best method to do it, he still didn’t want to upset her.
Yun Bixue shook her head. “Limo, I know that I might be a little rash and illogical right now, but really, I can’t just sit still and do nothing here. If it’s something about my parents, I want to go there personally. I want to personally search and investigate. I don’t care if it will be hard or tiring. If I have to stare and wait for news at home, I wouldn’t be able to eat and sleep properly.”
Hearing this statement, Xie Limo’s eyes leaked traces of tenderness as he caressed Yun Bixue’s head. After that, he arranged for bodyguards and a convoy of vehicles for their departure to Xiangnan Town today.
The five noble families that were headed by the Fang family were still gloating and preparing to cause trouble. Although he sent people to secretly monitor them and compromise their influence bit by bit, there was still danger everywhere. He couldn’t assure their complete safety, but he could no longer withstand the thought of losing Yun Bixue, so he was especially careful with his preparations.
After everything was planned meticulously, Xie Limo drove with Yun Bixue and Old Master Yun. Aunt Zhou followed as well to take care of Old Master Yun.
Xiangnan Town was not near. Even if he drove faster, it would still take him five to six hours.
As they drove, about five to six cars were protecting them nearby. There were also groups of five to six cars on other routes in order to confuse the enemy so that they wouldn’t know which route Xie Limo took.
Although the major powers wouldn’t dare to do much anymore, Xie Limo still made preparations for every possible scenario.
At eleven in the evening, they arrived at Xiangnan Town. Even though it was already dark, the place was still filled with the charm of the olden days. Red lanterns hung on the streets, lighting up the place like a sea of stars.
( B oxnovel.c om ) They went to the shop that purchased the painting during that time. After telling the shop owner their purpose, she welcomed them in.
Yun Bixue wasted no time and broached the subject immediately.
The woman sighed and replied, “I said that it was fated the other time because at first, we thought this lady and the woman who brought it looked similar. Who would’ve thought that both of them were actually mother and daughter?”
Yun Bixue’s heart started pounding. As long as it was something about her mother, she would be nervous and anxious like what she was right now. “I would like to ask if my parents mentioned that they would take the ship? Please think about it carefully. Did they say anything else?”
