Xie Limo caressed Yun Bixue’s head and said, “Don’t worry. Wait for me, okay?”
“Remember to call me.”
Even after Xie Limo left, Yun Bixue stood rooted to the spot. As the car drove further away, her heart seemed to feel smaller and smaller. The two of them were always together, and she was already used to seeing him every single day.
The thought of not being able to see him for the next two to three days depressed her.
Ever since she met her husband, she was becoming more unlike her usual self.
“Young Madam, it’s cold outside, please go in!” A servant called out to her, worried that Young Madam would catch a cold. It was the start of autumn, so mornings were colder than usual.
Yun Bixue turned around and thought that it was Xie Shiyi, but it was not.
Ever since the fire, she had not seen Xie Shiyi. Xie Limo said that Xie Shiyi was sent back to the headquarters to receive her punishment. No matter what she said or how she pleaded, Xie Limo never allowed Xie Shiyi to return.
That was why she guessed that Xie Shiyi had passed away. When she asked Xie Liu, he was tight-lipped and refused to give her an answer as well.
With a sigh, Yun Bixue returned inside the house before packing for work.
When Xie Limo arrived in Zi Bei City, he arranged to meet with Qin Huailing immediately.
The two of them sat in a private room in a restaurant. Qin Huailing eyed this magnificent man in front of him. With that elegant aura surrounding him, it was no wonder why women fell for him at first sight.
“I don’t know why you called me here. What is it?” Qin Huailing went straight to the point.
Xie Limo waved his hand at Xie Liu, and the latter took out an agreement contract before placing it in front of Qin Huailing. “Young Master Qin, this is the agreement Young Master Xie prepared for the partnership.”
Qin Huailing eyed Xie Limo, not understanding his meaning.
Xie Limo said plainly, “You will understand once you’ve read it.”
Qin Huailing lowered his head and carefully read the contract. As he flipped through its pages, his face paled several shades, and by the time he reached the final page, his fingers were trembling.
He raised his head and stared hard at Xie Limo. He never knew that Xie Limo’s goal was, in fact, the entire Ning An City.
“Why did you choose the Qin family? You should know that Aunt Qin is the one who holds the power in the family, not me.”
A serious glint flashed across Xie Limo’s eyes. He smiled lightly and said, “Qin Huailing, your true capabilities are not that simple. For such a long time, you’ve been biding your time and accumulating your power. You still wish to seek revenge, don’t you? What happened to your leg was not an accident!”
Qin Huailing’s heart trembled as he looked at Xie Limo. He felt as though he was completely seen through by Xie Limo. What a scary and powerful man.
“So, you already know everything. As expected of the Xie family.”
Xie Limo crossed his arms and rested it on the table before calmly replying, “If the Xie family wished to find out about the Qin family, we will naturally have our ways. Although you don’t hold the power of the Qin family yet, you’re waiting for a chance, and I can provide you with that.”
Looking at Qin Huailing’s skeptical look, Xie Limo continued, “As for why I want to help the Qin family, you can just take it as me returning the favor. That time when Yun Mengshi wanted to use you against Bixue, you refused and protected her. Her matters are mine as well, so you can just treat it as me returning a favor for that time.”
A glint flashed across Qin Huailing’s eyes. “Young Master Xie, that time, the Yun family wanted to give Yun Bixue to me. Do you not mind?”
A dangerous glint flashed across Xie Limo’s eyes as a murderous aura cloaked him. If Yang Siru wasn’t dead and Old Lady Shen wasn’t dying, he would continue to deal with them. “It doesn’t matter if I mind it or not. That was all in the past. All that matters now is that she’s by my side as my wife right now.”
