Xie Limo finally understood what Yun Bixue was saying. His hands trembled as he hugged her, and his embrace grew tighter. He almost wanted to swallow her up.
Yun Bixue’s mind went blank. Besides feeling apologetic and hurt, she didn’t even know what else to do. She had even forgotten how painful her feet were feeling.
Suddenly, Yun Bixue came to a realization. She pushed away Xie Limo and grabbed his arm. “Let’s hurry up and go home so you can change. You should take a warm bath first. I don’t want you to catch a cold. It’s all my fault. I’ve forgotten all about it.”
Hearing that Yun Bixue had somewhat calmed down, Xie Limo finally heaved a sigh of relief. He picked up her heels and carried her too, as though there was no one else around them. He carried her in his arms as he walked across the bridge and towards the car.
There were still a few people on the bridge. After witnessing that scene, they felt incredibly envious.
Just before they reached the car, Yun Bixue suddenly thought of something. “Limo, put me down. I want to see who that person is. You know, the one who jumped into the river with Yangyang?
A glint of disapproval flashed in Xie Limo’s eyes. Yun Bixue wrapped her arms around his neck and whispered beside his ear, “I just want to see who that person is. I thought she looked rather familiar.”
Under Yun Bixue’s persistence, Xie Limo put her down and the pair of high heels, but she refused to let him put them on for her. She stepped away from him and went over to take a look. Startled, she exclaimed, “Limo, it’s Li Wenhui!”
Xie Limo clearly knew who she was. The look in his eyes turned distant, and his expression became ambiguous.
Yun Bixue felt rather shocked. She had never expected that Li Wenhui would choose to end her life this way.
After taking a quick look, the police officers arrived at the scene. Yun Bixue then followed Xie Limo and went home.
As soon as they returned home, Yun Bixue immediately got a fresh set of clothes for Xie Limo to change into. She switched on the water heater and pushed him into the bathroom. “Hurry up and go. Take a proper bath, or I’ll feel worried.”
While Xie Limo was being pushed forward by Yun Bixue, he looked at her feet and said, “I’ll clean and treat the wounds on your feet first.”
Yun Bixue shook her head. “I’m not a child, and I can do it myself. Quick, take a bath now, or else I won’t let you sleep on the bed tonight.”
An intoxicating glint flashed across his eyes, and he smiled briefly before turning around. “My dear, you’re becoming more and more daring. You don’t even let me sleep on the bed now.”
“Of course, I have the final say. You have to listen to me.”
Xie Limo lowered his head and kissed Yun Bixue’s forehead. “Okay, I’ll listen to you tonight, but your feet must already be cleaned and treated before I come out of the bathroom. Otherwise, you’ll be punished later.”
The word “punish” carried a much more intimate connotation between the two of them. Yun Bixue blushed and hurriedly pushed Xie Limo into the bathroom before shutting the door.
She leaned against the bathroom door and placed a hand on her thumping heart. Despite spending a long time together already, she still felt embarrassed whenever he said such things.
After a moment, Yun Bixue began to search for the first aid kit. She turned on the TV then sat on the sofa while treating her feet.
Right after switching to the news channel, the news aired about the good deeds that had been captured today. It was about a child falling into the water, and it even showed Xie Limo trying to save her. The headlines read, “Ning An City’s leader, Young Master Xie, personally jumping into the river to save a child!”
Hearing those words, Yun Bixue put down the medication on the table, watching the news without blinking. As long as it was related to Xie Limo, she would watch it seriously.
Some passersby were also interviewed, and all of them were talking about what had happened earlier. She focused mostly on the scene right before Xie Limo had jumped. Through the footage, she could clearly see Xie Limo holding her back and jumping into the river himself—this scene tugged at her most tender heartstrings.
