Back then, Yun Bixue merely listened to what Chu Fei’er said and didn’t think much of it. Now that she thought about it, she realized that Chu Fei’er was exceptionally cunning—she could take advantage of anyone.
Yun Bixue took a deep breath and instructed Xie Jiu to take Li Qiuyan away and interrogate her without holding back. Judging from Xie Jiu’s way of working, she could picture Li Qiuyan getting killed in the end.
An Yexuan had initially tried to stop Yun Bixue, but the latter shot him a murderous look. “An Yexuan, do you really want to save her? Did the two of you join forces?”
An Yexuan didn’t know why, but he swallowed his words and stopped in his tracks after seeing Yun Bixue’s fierce glare.
Seeing that Yun Bixue was almost done venting her anger, Xie Limo walked over and held her hand. Smoothening the creases on her gown, he said gently, “Let’s go. You shouldn’t get yourself worked up because of insignificant people.”
“You’re right.” At that moment, Yun Bixue felt weak. With Xie Limo holding her hand, she supported herself and walked away.
Watching her leave, An Yexuan felt that she was growing more and more distant from himself.
After taking a few steps, Yun Bixue tried to explain before returning to the hall. “About those photos…”
Xie Limo covered her mouth and answered, “There’s no need to explain anything. That happened when you were in university, and it doesn’t mean anything. My wife is the best. Do you understand?”
Yun Bixue nodded. Each time she felt upset and frustrated, he was always by her side. His every word calmed her heart, and she would forever cherish this warmth.
When they returned to the hall, the meeting had just concluded. Xie Limo went up on stage to deliver a speech. After that, everyone left one by one. Later, when everyone has already left, Xie Limo brought Yun Bixue to the car.
An Yexuan was still standing there. He looked up at the sky, and his expression was hard to decipher. Su Lenghan approached him and said, “An Yexuan, it’s hard to read someone’s mind. I hope that you’re able to understand yourself.”
In fact, Su Lenghan could understand what An Yexuan was going through. Men were blind when it came to love. When they loved someone, they would stubbornly believe that everything their lover said was right while others were wrong.
An Yexuan thought that way too. He believed that everything Chu Fei’er did was right and that Yun Bixue was wrong. Unless he came to a realization himself, it was hard to change such stubborn thinking.
After taking a deep breath, Su Lenghan finally left.
While Qin Huailing was leaving the venue, someone reported to him about Aunt Qin’s whereabouts. His thin lips curled upwards as he said, “Send that DNA test of Aunt Qin and her son to the Qin family’s headquarters. Ensure that every single member of the Qin Family Organization receives a copy of it.”
“Young Master Qin, what about Aunt Qin’s attempt to assassinate you?”
“Let her do whatever she wants. This time, inform the media and arrange for people to blow up the assassination. Let the entire Ning An City know about her actions. It would be best if certain people from Tian Jing City were to hear about it.” Back then, the Yuan family was also involved in the attempted assassination. One day, he would return to Tian Jing City and settle this score.
Inside the car, Yun Bixue leaned against the window and rested her head. She felt depressed and couldn’t smile at all. Xie Limo reached out his hand and gently caressed her cheek. “What happened? Are you tired?”
Yun Bixue shook her head and answered, “No, I’m just thinking about something. Limo, I think that we really cannot show mercy to our enemies. Those five families from Ning An City are surely planning something. They won’t just put up with it without a fight.”
Xie Limo’s expression turned distant as he answered, “Those five families can no longer cause any huge impact. After a few days, the media would report about it. Didn’t you say that you experienced an attempted assassination today? The leads will point to these five families, and this time, Ning An City will interrogate them. After all, they were the ones who ordered their men of sacrifice and broke the rules of Ning An City. They should be punished according to the other noble families’ rules.”
