Xie Limo chuckled at Yun Bixue’s statement. He lowered his head so that their noses were touching—their lips were so close that they almost touched. “So, my wife is saying that I’m the hero while you’re the beauty? Didn’t you just say that I was in charge of the looks while you were in charge of earning for the family?”
Yun Bixue pursed her lips and pressed them against Xie Limo’s. She even stuck her tongue out and licked his lips. Like candy floss, Xie Limo’s lips tasted of all sorts of flavors, so much so that she wanted to taste it again. She murmured, “You said that I’m pretty, so I’m the beauty.”
Xie Limo pressed a hand behind Yun Bixue’s head and deepened the kiss, their tongues intertwining. There was no space for her to retreat, so she could only receive his deep kiss and respond in kind.
The kiss carried such deep emotions that Yun Bixue felt like her heart was about to jump out from her chest. Her mind was muddled, and her heart stirred. Her grip on Xie Limo’s sleeves gradually tightened without her realizing it.
Right before Yun Bixue suffocated, Xie Limo finally let her go reluctantly. He sighed and said, “My wife is, of course, a beauty. The beauty of my heart!”
Yun Bixue nuzzled into his neck to calm her heartbeat and breathing. After hearing his words, the corners of her mouth tilted up into a radiant smile—it was gentle and angelic.
It was a blessing that it was him who she had met.
At that moment, Yun Bixue had already forgotten about her aching feet. She looked at the clock on the wall and remarked, “Oh, it’s already late. We have to sleep soon.”
Yun Bixue began to stand up in a rush, but the moment her foot met the floor, pain spiked through her body. She yelped in pain, remembering that her feet were injured.
Xie Limo asked in a worried voice, “What’s happened? Look at you. You’ve already forgotten about your injured feet. This is bad.”
Yun Bixue started blaming herself. “Don’t worry. This is my fault. I always get into trouble.”
Xie Limo kneeled down and picked Yun Bixue up in a princess carry. “Don’t spout nonsense. No matter how big of a trouble you get into, you always have me.”
While Xie Limo was carrying her upstairs to their bedroom, she couldn’t help but say in frustration, “But I always cause trouble for you and tire you out. If it weren’t for me, you wouldn’t be so tired.”
Xie Limo paused in his steps as he adjusted Yun Bixue in his arms. “You always think about these things. I really don’t know what’s in your head? Even though you were a surprise, you brought countless joys into my life. If I didn’t have you, my life wouldn’t be this warm. There’s no such thing as being tired between a married couple. There is only willingness and happiness to provide for your partner. Unless you’re telling me that you wish for me to return to that cold and stiff life that I led before?”
Yun Bixue shook her head. “No, I don’t. I wish for your life to be colorful and filled with joy.”
Xie Limo leaned down and kissed her forehead. He spoke softly, “My wife, don’t you know? You’re the most vivid brilliance in my life—the person who makes me happy.” He didn’t feel much in the past, but now, his heart felt like it was becoming smaller—it was so small that he could no longer withstand it if she were to face more danger.
Because of her, he worked harder and persevered longer. He passionately pursued life because of her existence.
Ever since his younger sister left him, his life was like a stark white canvas. But because of Yun Bixue’s presence, the coldness in his heart had finally disappeared bit by bit.
