A glint began to appear in Yun Bixue’s eyes as she stood at the door and looked at the stall. They glittered while she recalled how he had helped her when she was feeling utterly desolate. No matter how many years had passed, she would never forget about it.
Ahh, really. Back then, her heart had grown completely numb due to the misery and helplessness she felt when it came to her family problems and relationship. It felt as though the sky had collapsed on her. She had never imagined that she would be able to get over it someday.
During that time, she felt that despite the world being so broad and open, it had no place for her. She felt as though she had no one to rely on, and she was so lonely and miserable. No one would understand that kind of loneliness unless they experienced it themselves.
She even had the impulse to jump down when she strolled along the bridge. It was true. While wandering around aimlessly, she had harbored that thought and kept everything to herself.
Back then, she even wondered who would ever love her.
Why was it so hard to meet someone who loved her as much as she loved him? Why can’t he see her wholesomeness, even though she sincerely cherished him? Su Lenghan had chosen someone else over her. She really wondered if she could ever walk out of that state of misery. Would she find someone else again?
She thought that as long as her grandfather had recovered, and her younger sister had found her partner, she would have no regrets in life. It was fine even if she ended her life.
She had harbored those pitiful thoughts while feeling depressed, lonely, and helpless. No one would think that way unless they were really pushed to their limits.
Thinking back on the pain she felt during that time, she felt depressed deep down. As she recalled her memories of the past, Yun Bixue couldn’t control her tears from falling down.
Xie Limo realized Yun Bixue had turned emotional. Seeing her tears, his heart ached uncontrollably. “You were fine just now. Why are you crying all of a sudden?”
Yun Bixue wiped her tears away. Shaking her head, she answered, “It’s just that I’m feeling rather sentimental. Limo, thank you for staying by my side.” She was truly grateful to him. If he hadn’t been by her side, she didn’t even know how she would be able to live her life properly.
Xie Limo didn’t know what Yun Bixue was really feeling deep down and thought that she had been referring to him taking her to this hot pot stall. He wiped her tears and comforted her. “Silly girl. I’ve told you that I won’t make you cry again. Why are you still crying? I won’t bring you here in the future if you continue crying.”
Yun Bixue wiped her tears away and smiled at Xie Limo. “Okay, I’ll stop crying. I won’t cry in the future too, so you still have to bring me here.”
“I know that you love this stall. Let’s go in.” As he spoke, he held Yun Bixue’s hand and stepped inside.
The stall wasn’t crowded, and the owner noticed the two of them instantly. Smiling, she stepped forward to welcome them. “Bixue, young lass! You’re here!”
“Yes, Auntie. I wanted to eat spicy hot pot, so I came here.”
The auntie replied warmly, “Hurry up and sit down. It’s not crowded now, so I will personally cook it for you. This young lad is so sweet to you. He’s so thoughtful and caring.”
Yun Bixue nodded. “That’s right, Auntie. He’s really nice to me.”
“Wait for a bit, okay? I’ll cook for you now.”
When the food arrived, Yun Bixue cheered up. She looked around and sighed. “It’s been a year, but nothing has changed.”
Xie Limo chuckled softly and arranged the utensils for Yun Bixue. “You said that nothing had changed for the past three years when we first came too.”
Yun Bixue’s mouth dropped open, and she said, “Ahh? You still remember what I said back then!”
Xie Limo smiled and didn’t answer. He still remembered her mood and the words she said back then. During that time, she had a lot of worries on her mind, and she wasn’t as happy as she was now.
He couldn’t help but feel fascinated by how amazing fate worked.
Yun Bixue looked outside. Batting her eyelashes, she turned to Xie Limo and asked, “That was your first time eating spicy hot pot, right? I was still taking care of you!”
