No matter how much Aunt Qin screamed and shouted, Qin Huailing did not turn back. When he left, he looked at his legs and laughed self-deprecatingly. Who was Miss Yuan? He should have long forgotten about her. Now, all he knew was that the Yuan family was his enemy!
From now on, he was in charge of the Qin family. He would bring the Qin family into Tian Jing City and get back what they had lost from the Yuan family.
For the next several days, the headlines in Ning An City’s news were all about what happened in the Qin family.
Yun Bixue had a habit of reading newspapers in the office, so she knew about what happened to the Qin family in this period. She turned to look at the stocks on her computer screen and saw that the Qin family’s shares had been fluctuating a lot for the past few days. Despite the inconsistency, its overall value increased.
At that point, Qin Huailing became the true head of the Qin family. Although his legs remained crippled, no one opposed his rise to the seat.
Yun Bixue was curious. How did Qin Huailing become this powerful? His rise to power was so effortless that he had appeased and satisfied everyone in such a short time.
That night, when she was about to sleep, Yun Bixue voiced her question out loud to Xie Limo. The latter just caressed her back and smiled without a word.
Yun Bixue came to a sudden realization and raised her head. “Limo, could it be that you helped him?”
Xie Limo continued to smile. “I gave him information about most of the people in the Qin family. Everyone has their weakness. As long as he took down a few people, it will be easy. Of course, what comes after that would be all up to him.”
“Hubby, you really helped him out a lot. I’m sure he will be grateful to you.”
Xie Limo ran his slender fingers through Yun Bixue’s hair and said, “He was good on his own and has accumulated enough power. All I did was to boost it a little. Even if I did not help him, he would eventually get the Qin family back. If he was someone who couldn’t hold his own against an enemy, I wouldn’t have helped him.”
“But didn’t you say earlier that since he once helped me, you’re returning the favor? You even said you would give him a big gift as well.”
A glint flashed across Xie Limo’s eyes as he lowered his head to peck Yun Bixue on her cheek. “So, my wife still remembers that. That’s right. The international doctor will arrive here in Ning An City soon together with his talented team. They will be taking a look at Qin Huailing’s legs.”
Yun Bixue pulled Xie Limo’s arm and shifted her body to lean into his embrace. She fiddled with his fingers while saying, “Hubby, you have done so much for me, but I feel like I’ve only done so little for you.” Frankly speaking, Yun Bixue had always felt guilty that she did not return the same amount of love that Xie Limo had given her.
Hearing Yun Bixue’s words, Xie Limo’s heart started aching, as though a needle had pierced through it. He tightened his hold around Yun Bixue and rested his chin on the crown of her head. Sighing, he answered, “Don’t say that. You have no idea how much you’ve done for me. If it weren’t for me, you wouldn’t have to work so hard or face so many dangers. If you’re talking about heartache, it would be mine since I didn’t protect you well enough last time.”
Xie Limo paused for a while before continuing, “Also, you’ve brought color to my life in so many ways. Because of you, I got to experience the warmth of a family, not to mention the love that my parents had for one another.”
Yun Bixue’s heart stirred, and she turned to kiss Xie Limo. With their fingers interlaced, she said with determination, “Hubby, I will always be by your side so that you can always feel that warmth.”
