Yun Bixue saw how displeased Xie Limo looked as she rubbed her ankle. “It really doesn’t hurt. It only started hurting just now.”
Xie Limo sighed deeply. “My wife, don’t treat me like an idiot. Of course I can tell when these blisters formed and when they burst.”
Yun Bixue met Xie Limo’s deep gaze and deflated visibly. “But really, I’ve only realized it a while ago.”
“Yun Bixue, you’re still lying. If you continue to do this, I won’t allow you to leave the house for the next few days.”
Yun Bixue tugged Xie Limo’s sleeves anxiously. “Don’t do that. I won’t tell lies. I have important matters to deal with at the office for the next two days, so how can I not leave the house?” She couldn’t stand being cooped up at home. As long as she had tasks to finish, she would still want to go to the office. However, she also knew that Xie Limo wouldn’t compromise when he got angry. That was why she had to negotiate and must not anger him.
Perhaps it was Yun Bixue’s lack of concern for herself that utterly angered Xie Limo. He grabbed her foot and took a closer look again.

Xie Limo felt helplessness and impatience in face of this situation. “Yun Bixue, you finally know that it hurts? Didn’t you endure it very well before this?”
Yun Bixue lowered her head, not unlike that of a child who had done something wrong. She replied in a soft voice, “I was scared that you’d be worried.”
“You didn’t say it because you didn’t want me to worry? Because you didn’t want me to worry, you let your feet hurt this much?”
Xie Limo’s questions rendered Yun Bixue speechless, so she just bowed her head. She assumed that he would be fine after he let out some steam.
Xie Limo sighed. “Yun Bixue, really, are you a child? Do you still need me to ask you about these things? Do you need it to hurt this much before you even tell me?”
Yun Bixue muttered, “Even if the blisters broke, I didn’t want to say it.”
Xie Limo had to grit his teeth at this point. He
