Yun Bixue did not want Xie Limo to worry, so she shook her head and said that she was fine. However, her feet were aching nonstop, and she couldn’t help but feel restless and worried. She wanted to rush back home, so she could wash them and apply some medication.
They weren’t hurting when she left the house, but after walking for a while at the hospital’s corridors, they started to hurt. However, in order not to worry Xie Limo, she pretended as if nothing was wrong. Besides, she had an image to maintain, so she could not show any form of weakness or discomfort as well.
Now that she was in the car, she could finally rest them.
Seeing the discomfort on Yun Bixue’s face, Xie Limo thought that she was worried about Su Lenghan. A tinge of jealousy rose in his heart as he comforted her. “Su Lenghan just fainted. You don’t have to worry too much about him.”
Yun Bixue was startled. She sat up straighter and moved her elbow away from where it was leaning on the window. Turning to Xie Limo, she said in a coquettish voice, “You thought that I was worried about Su Lenghan? Hubby, you’re thinking too much.”
With his hands on the steering wheel, he retorted, “Isn’t that the case? If not, why are you so anxious?”
Yun Bixue was amused at the situation. “Mr. Xie, I realized now that you sometimes act like a child as well. How cute.”
Xie Limo’s mood turned for the better after seeing Yun Bixue’s smile. “My wife is making fun of me. I think she’s asking to be punished.”
“You’re driving right now. Don’t get caught or you will hit the headlines. They’ll be talking about how Young Master Xie broke the traffic rules.”
A chuckle slipped out from Xie Limo’s lips. “Dear wife of mine, do you think that the reporters would dare to report even if I had something bad to report about?”
Yun Bixue thought about it. He was right indeed. There used to be reporters who falsified news about her husband, saying things like he had an illegitimate child. Because of that, the entire media of Ning An City had been replaced in just a span of a few days, and this was something that everyone knew.
A sudden realization hit Yun Bixue. “I finally understand now. Despite the things that happened today, only the news that you saved someone was reported. The part about the two assassins and those five men that got beaten up were completely left out. There wasn’t even a trace of it online. I thought the whole situation was weird, but I get it now.”
“What a slow reaction!”
Yun Bixue shook her head. “I’m not that slow. I just didn’t expect that they wouldn’t report about those. At that time, I was thinking about how they could report anything they like. They can spread those pictures and videos around, but no one would dare to anger you in the future. That would save us the trouble from assassination attempts.”
After Yun Bixue said the last sentence, a cold and hard glint flashed in Xie Limo’s eyes. At the intersection, Xie Limo suddenly took a sharp turn. “The thing with Shen Jingcui was not just a coincidence. I’m having people investigate this to find the mastermind. From the information I got from Xie Jiu earlier, the only people who came in contact with her were the doctors and nurses. However, based on the video footage, there was a woman who wasn’t part of the staff.”
Because of the speed of the car, Yun Bixue’s body shook from the impact. Hearing Xie Limo’s words, she came to a realization as she gripped the seat belt. “I think that it’s Chu Fei’er. If it wasn’t her, then it would be someone she hired. Can we look at that video footage now? There’s something I wish to check.”
Xie Limo’s expression shifted as he turned to regard Yun Bixue seriously. “Now?”
Yun Bixue nodded her head. “Yes, right now.” At that moment, she had forgotten her sore feet. All she wanted was to clear the doubt in her heart.
When Xie Limo checked his watch and saw that it was half-past nine, he thought about it and hesitated. “It’s the perfect time to wash up and rest. If you check the video now, I’m worried that you’d be too tired tonight.”
