Yun Bixue was stunned and couldn’t react in time. A glint flashed momentarily across her eyes, and she asked, “Organize a business meeting and invite all of these people there?”
Xie Limo recorded down the names of these families on his laptop—there are over twenty of them. “Yes, we’ll invite all of them. The business meeting will be held at the largest dining room in Luxury Emperor’s ground floor. We’ll spread the word around in the next few days. The larger the impact, the better. It would be best if it caused a stir in Ning An City.”
Hearing Xie Limo’s serious words, Yun Bixue was speechless. She understood deep down that what Xie Limo was arranging this time around must be something huge. He was trying to reshuffle the entire hierarchy in Ning An City.
Her heart began to pound. She pursed her lips as she pondered for a while. “Limo, is now really the time for this?”
Xie Limo looked away from his laptop and turned to Yun Bixue. He explained, “Do you think that this is too sudden, or do you feel that you’re not ready yet? It’s okay, I’m here. You just have to play your part as Young Madam Xie. After this ends, we will hold our wedding. No one will be able to disrupt us then.”
“The reshuffling of the century-old hierarchy of Ning An City will cause a huge uproar. Will that be fine?” She still felt rather worried. They were talking about the entire city! Ning An City wasn’t an ordinary city. It had an iconic presence in the entire Country A, not to mention that it was where the largest noble families congregated. It was also the poshest and most luxurious place in the whole country. If they were to completely reshuffle the hierarchy in Ning An City, it would cause a huge stir in the country.
What Xie Limo was about to do was definitely not a trivial matter. This was just like turning the entire Ning An City over and changing it. Yun Bixue’s heartbeat accelerated as she listened.
Looking at the rigid expression on Yun Bixue’s face, Xie Limo stood up and pulled her into his embrace. Caressing her head, he said in a reassuring voice, “Relax. You’ll grow old very quickly if you worry too much. It’ll be fine, alright? You just have to listen to me.”
“I’m only in my twenties. I’m not old.” Women hated being reminded that they would age quickly.
Xie Limo used his thumb and caressed her puffed-up cheeks. “I was wrong. You’re the youngest and prettiest.”
Yun Bixue eventually calmed down after being comforted by Xie Limo, but she was still in disbelief. “Can’t we adopt a gentler approach?”
“My dear, it’s not good to be too softhearted. In the future, you’ll become Madam Xie and our matron. Your heart has to toughen up.” As Xie Limo spoke, he pointed his finger at Yun Bixue’s chest.
Yun Bixue blushed and answered, “I’m not softhearted. It’s just that I’m afraid it would affect you if the entire Country A were to be stirred up.”
Xie Limo’s heart turned soft, and a gentle glint flashed across his eyes. “My dear, are you worried about me?”
Yun Bixue looked away. “I’m not worried at all!”
“You’re angry! There’s no need to be worried, okay? It will be fine if we’ve made the necessary arrangements. Most importantly, they tried to assassinate you again and again. That fire and explosion had already triggered me by targeting my weak spot. That’s why I won’t just sit back this time around. Besides, the private businesses of the Fang family and those noble families who colluded with them had already suffered a blow. They are now under the control of my subordinates. Not only that, there are several smaller noble families who are itching to eliminate them so they can take their place…”
As Xie Limo explained all of his arrangements, Yun Bixue grew increasingly shocked. She clutched Xie Limo’s sleeve tightly with a grave expression as she listened to him. After a while, she made up her mind and said in a resolute voice, “Limo, I’ll support you in everything you do. Assign some tasks to me too.”
Delight and satisfaction were evident in Xie Limo’s eyes. “Sure, there’s definitely something for you. You’ve already trained yourself for this. I’ll bring my wife to the business meeting so we’ll look more impressive.”
