Uncle Wu’s heart ached for Yun Bixue. He had seen the sufferings that Miss had gone through, so he sincerely hoped that she could relax a little and not tire herself out so much.
Seeing how hard Miss Yun trained herself, the men of sacrifice of the Yun family ached for her as well. However, after seeing her perseverance, they could only watch on anxiously.
Yun Bixue was currently going through the obstacle course with the strict time limit that she had given herself. After each round, she tried to adjust the limit and push past it, improving her record as time passed. She also traded hands with a few men of sacrifice to strengthen her agility.
As long as Yun Bixue entered the old family house, she would tie a sandbag to her legs. Sometimes, the training would be so tough that her legs would feel sore, but she did not think much about it.
She had only one goal—to get stronger. And from there, get even stronger.
Whenever she was tired, Yun Bixue would remain standing. Even when she wanted to sit down, she would force herself to stand up.
Later, when Xie Limo saw his wife’s tired form, he went up to welcome her and asked, “Why have you been returning so late recently?”
“There were some things I had to do at the company. Also, I went back to the old family home, that’s why I came home later than usual.” If Xie Limo knew that she had been pushing herself over her limits, his heart would definitely ache for her. She certainly didn’t want him to worry.
Xie Limo carefully observed Yun Bixue’s expression and caressed her cheeks. “Why do you look so exhausted? Your skin looks a little dry too. Don’t stress yourself out too much, okay? You always have me.”
Yun Bixue shook her head. “Don’t worry, I’m not. I got lots of energy every day. It actually feels great. Oh, did you cook dinner? What dishes did you make? It smells so good! It’s making me so hungry.” After saying this, Yun Bixue quickly got out from Xie Limo’s embrace and ran towards the kitchen.
She hoped that this would distract Xie Limo. If he were to seriously question her, she wouldn’t know how to answer him.
Yun Bixue made it look like she was very interested in dinner. With a hand on her stomach, she did look like she was starving.
Seeing that Yun Bixue was about to enter the kitchen, he caught up to her and hugged her from behind before softly saying, “Just sit over there. You’ll be able to eat soon. Your nose must be really sensitive to know that I made good food for tonight, right?”
Yun Bixue nodded. “Yep, the moment I smelled it, I knew you made my favorite dishes.”
Xie Limo lightly tapped her nose. “I don’t know what to say. With just this, you became more lively.” As Xie Limo spoke, he sat her down before taking out the dishes one by one from the kitchen.
Seeing how Xie Limo was no longer suspicious, Yun Bixue heaved a sigh of relief inwardly. It was great that he didn’t notice much. She only wanted to do her best to help him and be worthy of him. She definitely didn’t want to drag him down.
Seeing Xie Limo carrying the dishes, Yun Bixue rushed in to help out as well.
However, right before she touched the plate, her hand was stopped by Xie Limo. He said in a stern voice, “What did I say before? You’re not allowed in the kitchen anymore!”
Naturally, Yun Bixue knew why Xie Limo said that. It was because she scalded herself the other time. Her expression shifted as she retracted her hands and pleaded, “Limo, hubby, husband of mine, my most handsome Mr. Xie, let me help you, please? Just a little will do. Besides, it’s just taking the dishes out. Why don’t you relax a little too?”
Xie Limo rejected her offer. “Wife, if I ever felt that this was tiring, I would’ve gotten the servants to cook dinner instead of doing it myself. I’m not tired, alright? I’m very willing to do it, that’s why I did it. Don’t think too much about it. Now, go over there and sit down, or else I’ll get really angry.”
