Yun Bixue was so engrossed watching the news that she had forgotten to treat her wounds on her feet. She grabbed her phone and began to research about the news on the Internet. She looked through social media and realized that everyone was talking about Xie Limo.
All the news were about how Young Master Xie had saved someone, and the articles were accompanied by lots of ‘likes’ and comments.
“He’s really Ning An City’s wonderful official. As a citizen of Ning An City, I feel exceptionally proud.”
“With someone like Young Master Xie, Ning An City’s future will flourish.”
“Wow! Young Master Xie is really my idol. I really respect him.”
“What a wonderful man. Someone like him is so rare these days. He’s definitely a talented and all-rounder person!”
“Young Master Xie didn’t care about his life and jumped into the river to save a life. It’s so touching… There’s still such a wonderful official around nowadays, serving his people… I must give Young Master Xie a hundred ‘likes’…”
Yun Bixue read all the comments one by one. Within a few hours, there were already more than ten thousand comments, and the number was growing at a rapid pace. Those figures made her extremely surprised. This time around, Xie Limo’s reputation had become even more favorable.
Deep down, she felt excited and proud of him.
As she read, the corners of her lips showed a radiant smile.
Yun Bixue continued reading and lost track of time. When she heard the sounds of the bathroom door opening, she snapped out of her daze and promptly put down her phone. After hurriedly rubbing the medication all over her feet in a messy manner, she sat on the sofa and watched TV, as though nothing had happened.
When Xie Limo entered the room in a bathrobe, he saw Yun Bixue leaning lazily against the sofa and watching TV. He glanced at the TV screen and realized that it was airing today’s news. In his opinion, there was nothing extraordinary, and it was just about him jumping into the river to save the child.
A distant glint flashed across Xie Limo’s eyes as he walked forward to sit on the sofa. He picked up the remote control and was about to switch the channels.
Yun Bixue hurriedly stopped Xie Limo and said, “Why are you changing the channel? This is pretty entertaining.”
Xie Limo held Yun Bixue’s hand and asked, “My dear, are you still a child? Why are you still watching such news?”
Yun Bixue smiled. “They’re all praising you! Of course I want to watch such news. You may feel that these reporters are just trying to suck up to you, but this news isn’t fabricated. Besides, the business meeting is coming up soon. It’s definitely beneficial for you to build up a positive image.”
While Yun Bixue was leaning close to him, Xie Limo could smell the medication. He lowered his head and looked at her soles.
Yun Bixue frantically jumped—she couldn’t let Xie Limo see it.
Xie Limo asked quietly, “I just want to see if the ointment has been applied properly. Why are you trying to hide your feet? Afraid that I’ll see them?”
Yun Bixue shook her head and tried to laugh it off. “In the past, a man cannot look at a woman’s feet so easily. Haven’t you heard of that?”
Xie Limo couldn’t help but chuckle. “My dear, what era is it now? Besides, which part of you have I not seen before? Can’t I even look at your feet? Hurry up and show me. Have you applied the ointment on your feet properly?”
As Xie Limo spoke, he was determined to take a good look.
After hearing those words, Yun Bixue suddenly recalled something, and her expression turned dull in an instant. She asked, “Earlier, Shen Jingcui said that you’ve seen her body. Quick, tell me the truth. What happened? You promised that I can ask you this after we come home and you’ll tell me the truth.”
Xie Limo stopped moving and looked at Yun Bixue. Seeing the determination in her eyes, he asked, “Do you really want to know?”
