The three subordinates heard Young Master Xie’s instructions and heaved a sigh of relief. Deep down, they deeply admired Young Madam. Only she could turn Young Master Xie’s hardened heart soft.
The three of them had been standing for a long time. Before Young Madam returned, the room was shrouded in an icy, oppressive aura, and it was only after she returned that the entire living room began to feel warmer.
They gave Yun Bixue a grateful look and bowed respectfully before rushing off.
Yun Bixue blinked curiously and asked Xie Limo, “Why were they staring at me like that? They looked so grateful. What did I do?”
“I don’t think so. They might be looking at me instead. It has nothing to do with Young Madam.”
Yun Bixue nodded. She looked as though she suddenly thought of something unhappy.
Xie Limo washed the utensils and removed his apron. Seeing how unhappy Yun Bixue looked, he stepped forward to her side and wrapped his arms around her. “You were feeling fine earlier. What’s wrong now? Do you feel sick?”
Yun Bixue rested her head on the other side of the sofa and shook her head. “No, I’m not sick.”
“You’re still lying to me. Something must be bothering you. What is it? Tell me.”
Seeing that Yun Bixue refused to talk, Xie Limo began to guess. After a while, he asked, “Is it about the news earlier? You know, you treat that child pretty well too. You’d be even more surprised to hear that I’ve carried that child!”
Yun Bixue listened to Xie Limo’s words, her emotions swaying. She turned back and looked at him with a clear glint in her bright eyes.
Xie Limo chuckled as he reached out to hold Yun Bixue’s hands. “I knew that you wanted to know what happened. You know this child too. You still don’t have any idea who she is?”
Yun Bixue began to ponder about the child’s identity. After a while, her brows knitted even tighter. Suddenly, her eyes lit up. “Could… Could it be Su Lenghan’s child?” She thought that it was highly possible. Because of the business meeting, Xie Limo would definitely invite Su Lenghan, who might bring his daughter along too. Everything made sense that way.
Yun Bixue batted her eyelashes and looked at Xie Limo seriously, waiting for him to give her a confirmation.
Xie Limo nodded. “You finally understand now. What are you even thinking about?”
Yun Bixue’s mouth dropped open. “So it really was Su Lenghan’s daughter.” Yun Bixue hurriedly turned around and looked at her phone to read about today’s latest news. After zooming into the photo and looking at the infant closely, Yun Bixue could tell that she really was Su Lenghan’s daughter.
Xie Limo gently hit Yun Bixue’s head. “Do you understand now? You have to be punished for not trusting me.”
Yun Bixue’s cheeks turned red, and she answered awkwardly, “It’s not that I didn’t trust you.”
“What is it then? You must trust your husband.”
In reality, Yun Bixue had very sensitive thoughts when it came to children. It was because she cared too much about Xie Limo. Anybody’s mind would also blank out if they saw their loved one involved in that scene. They wouldn’t have time to process anything or calm down to think rationally. If they could do that, they were simply just too heartless.
Seeing that Yun Bixue remained silent, Xie Limo asked, “Do you know that you’re wrong now?”
The light in Yun Bixue’s eyes flickered, and she smiled at Xie Limo. “I know, but don’t be angry and don’t punish me, okay?” She remembered someone telling her that women should know how to be willful and flirtatious. As long as the other party cared about you, you would definitely get things to go your way.
Yun Bixue pouted and acted adorable in front of Xie Limo, trying to get him to forget about this incident. It would be great if he could forget about how irrational she had been.
