Zhou Pingyu was shocked beyond words, and his heart trembled for some time. What he thought to be extremely difficult was so easily solved and explained by Xie Limo. Was it really so simple to handle?
As though he understood what Zhou Pingyu was thinking, Xie Limo said calmly, “Your political career has just begun. You don’t have much experience now. When you’ve handled more situations in the future, you’ll gain some experience. After you’ve secured the leadership of Zi Bei City, I’ll take you to Tian Jing City.”
Zhou Pingyu’s heart shuddered. He really felt as though he was sitting on a rollercoaster ride and couldn’t react in time.
In the past, he had worked continuously hard for his examinations, but he had never been accepted into the political scene in Ning An City. Everyone told him that he had to have connections, but he refused to believe it. Based on his own hard work, he wanted to walk along this path with his head held up high. However, the outcomes told him again and again that what he had initially thought was wrong.
Just as he was feeling helpless and had no choice but to reflect on himself, Xie Limo had appeared and directed him to a particular direction. Xie Limo had lit up a path for him, and he could then prove his worth. This allowed him to gain confidence.
Nevertheless, the bigger surprise had yet to come. He could have the chance to go to Tian Jing City.
Xie Limo turned his laptop around and tapped on it a few times. “I’ll send all the information you need to your secret email. Remember to take a look. If you want to achieve new heights, you have to be daring. Nothing is impossible. A soldier who doesn’t want to become a general isn’t a good soldier. Do you understand?”
Zhou Pingyu stood up in excitement. He bowed to Xie Limo and said, “Young Master Xie, thank you. I’m really grateful.”
“No need to be so worked up. Do your job well, and don’t show any odd behaviors from today onwards.”
“Yes, I understand!”
After Zhou Pingyu left, Xie Limo sighed quietly and rubbed his brows. Leaning back against the chair, he rested for a while.
Shortly after, he heard knocking on the door.
Xie Liu walked in with his cell phone and said to Xie Limo, “Young Master Xie, you have a call from Young Madam.”
A glint flashed across Xie Limo’s eyes. He seemed to have forgotten to inform his wife that he had safely arrived in Zi Bei City. He took over the phone and said, “Hello?”
After a while, he didn’t hear any sounds from the cell phone. Xie Limo removed it from his ear and looked at the screen—the call was still connected. He continued, “Hello? Why aren’t you speaking?”
“Have you arrived in Zi Bei City?”
A distant voice sounded from the other end of the phone. Xie Limo chuckled softly. “Are you angry because I didn’t call you?”
“I know you too well. Why are you denying it? I can tell everything from your voice. I haven’t been slacking away. I initially wanted to call you, but I’ve been busy working on some matters. Aren’t you working now?”
“Yes, I’m working now, but… But I just wanted to give you a call.” In fact, Yun Bixue had missed Xie Limo, and it was really torturing her. It had only been a short while, but her heart felt very empty. She didn’t even feel like working at the moment.
Xie Limo’s heart trembled as he listened to Yun Bixue’s soft voice. After arriving in Zi Bei City, his mind was full of her. He sighed quietly and asked, “Did you have a proper lunch?”
“Yes, I had a bento set for lunch. What about you? What did you eat?”
Xie Limo chuckled gently. “Didn’t we have some dumplings left from last night? You packed them for me, and I warmed them up earlier.” At that moment, Xie Limo was extremely happy after exchanging such simple words with his wife. Strangely, his heart would calm down after hearing her voice.
