That moment had happened too suddenly, so Yun Bixue didn’t have time to react at all. She hadn’t expected that these threats would come at her from both directions with Xie Limo just in front of her.
Inside the car, Xie Limo had initially been looking at Yun Bixue with a warm smile and was waiting for her to get on. However, the instant he saw the two threats approaching her, his expression turned cold and sinister instantly. His gaze was icy, and his killing intent filled the entire car.
At that moment, he could feel his breath hitch, his heart almost jumping out of his throat. He desperately wanted to lunge forward to Yun Bixue’s side and shield her from the two of them. He even wanted the two attackers to stab him directly at his heart instead.
Xie Limo couldn’t even think at all. In a split second, he flung the car door open and raced to Yun Bixue’s side. Nevertheless, he was still a distance away, so he couldn’t arrive by her side immediately to protect her.
Just before Yun Bixue was about to throw some punches, a dozen guards appeared from hiding. With lightning speed, they managed to subdue the two attackers.
“Ahh!” Both of them laid on the ground in a daze as they groaned in pain. Their limbs had already been snapped.
They moaned and yelled on the floor, rolling around because of the excruciating pain. The guards protecting Yun Bixue truly wanted to pierce the two attackers’ hearts with their knives, but they had to wait for their Master’s instructions.
When Xie Limo arrived by Yun Bixue’s side, he hugged her tightly, and a hint of pain and concern flashed in eyes. Trembling, he asked, “How are you? Are you okay?” His voice revealed his intense worry and heartache, and even self-reproach.
Yun Bixue had just snapped out of her shock. Shaking her head, she answered, “I’m fine.” However, her heart was still pounding despite her words.
She really hadn’t expected that there would still be a lapse in security, even with Xie Limo and the guards around her. She had just taken a few steps, and this dangerous incident had already happened. Although she had the capability to protect herself, she could still get injured too.
Xie Limo’s arms were still shaking as he embraced Yun Bixue. The moment he thought that he could have lost her just now, he couldn’t handle it. Fortunately, she was safe and sound.
Thinking back on the countless dangers that she had to go through, Xie Limo’s heart welled up in immense guilt and pain.
Yun Bixue could feel Xie Limo’s body trembling. She hugged him back and assured him, “Limo, don’t worry. I’m fine. Nothing happened to me at all.” At that moment, she had already calmed down and began to comfort Xie Limo.
Xie Limo gently released Yun Bixue from his arms and began to examine her from head to toe. After looking at her multiple times and ensuring that she was completely fine, he finally heaved a sigh of relief. Earlier, his heart had almost leaped out of his throat. He couldn’t verbalize the worry and fear that he had just felt, so he merely stared at Yun Bixue with pain and love in his eyes.
Yun Bixue shook her head and said, “Limo, don’t worry. I’m really fine.”
Xie Limo gently caressed Yun Bixue’s hair—his eyes were bloodshot. “If something were to happen to you, everyone will have to pay the price.”
His words were dripping with murderous intent, frightening Yun Bixue as well. She shook her head and held his hand, and in a gentle voice, she said, “Look at you. Don’t scare me. This little incident can’t harm me. You’re always so worried about me and treat me like a weak porcelain doll.” As she said this, she gently touched the corners of his eyes. Seeing them bloodshot, she felt hurt as well.
She turned around and looked at the two attackers lying on the ground.
Just as she was about to walk over, Xie Limo grabbed her hand, refusing to let her go near them.
Yun Bixue paused in her tracks. Turning back, she smiled reassuringly. “Leave it to me, okay? Trust me!”
