Hearing his wife defend him to such an extent, Xie Limo found his mood improve tremendously. His arms around Yun Bixue hugged her tighter still. "My wife is defending her husband to such an extent, I am so happy."
Yun Bixue extended her finger and poked at Xie Limo's chest lightly. "You're my husband. It is only natural that I will defend you. I am. No one can hurt my family."
Xie Limo looked at her childish demeanor, and his heart almost melted. He said lovingly, "Yes, I am your family." It wasn't a bad feeling at all.
Since they collected their marriage certificated, his wife has showered him with surprises. As a result, he too started to anticipate good things to come in their marriage.
Yun Bixue laid contently in Xie Limo's embrace. Listening to his heartbeat, she said softly, "Limo, to tell you the truth, I consider nobody in the Yun family other than Grandfather to be my family." Since her confrontation with Old Lady Shen, what little semblance of a family she had with them had been erased.
Xie Limo sighed silently. Caressing her head, he said, "I know." He knew that his wife had endured a lot of hardships in the past, so he tried to give her all the love, care, and warmth that he could.
"In the future, I will be your family, and no one can hurt you." He will shoulder everything for him, and rid her of all her loneliness and hardships.
"Oh yes, Limo, regarding He family, what's your plan? We can't let them go off so easily. Although we need to take things a step at a time in tackling the conspiracy of those couple of rich families, but we ought to make an example out of the He family to intimidate the rest of them." Yun Bixue said coldly. After all she had been through, she had long since grown out of her innocent character. She understood that given current circumstances, she needed to be ruthless.
"Rest easy, the He family is finished for good this time, and Shen family's plan will fail. Since the He family's mining portfolio was to be surrendered to the government, one of the sources of financial income for the Shen family will be cut off as well. We need to keep in mind that there's someone important in the Shen family. As long as he helps us, the Shen family has no chance to turn the tables on us."
Yun Bixue thought for a while, frowning. Confused, she asked, "You're talking about Old Master Chen's illegitimate son, the third son Shen Wenluo? Isn't he on the side of the Shen family?"
Xie Limo raised his eyebrows. His expression was calm and relaxed, as he clarified, "Although word is that he's an illegitimate son, but what if he isn't Old Master Chen's son? What comes of it then?" He was steadily guiding his wife's sharpness and wit, believing that given time, she will be able to protect herself without his interference.
No matter how ruthless she does things, as long as he has her back, no one will dare to say otherwise.
Yun Bixue's eyes brightened. "You're saying that there's a high likelihood that... Shen Wenluo's father isn't Old Master Chen." If that were true, it would be the best case scenario.
Both Old Master Chen and the Old Lady Shen at her house were at the core cruel and ruthless people. They would stop at nothing to for their goals. She suspected that Old Lady Shen was involved with both grandfather's hospitalization as well as Yun family's matters. Despite marrying into the Yun family, this old woman's heart had always been with Shen family.
All these years, Shen family had used this vicious Old Lady Shen to use the Yun family for their own benefits.
Yun Bixue seemed to realized something and said, "Limo, I saw Chen Jingcui at the Luxury Emperor the other day. That woman is something else."
Yun Bixue bringing up this matter reminded Xie Limo of what Manager Sun reported to him on that day. He rubbed his forehead resignedly, and sighed softly, "That day, weren't you afraid of getting injured?"
Yun Bixue understood what he was talking about. Shaking her head, she said, "I'm not afraid. I only wished to end all of them in one stroke at the time. They dared to sabotage you behind your back, hence they are my enemies."
"According to Manager Sun, the situation that day was extremely messy, and he had a hard time cleaning things up. You were very fierce." Despite what he was saying, Xie Limo's tone was filled with love and indulgence.
Yun Bixue blinked. "Weren't you at the scene? That's why I wasn't afraid. I just wanted to teach them a lesson and didn't care for anything else."
Xie Limo looked at Yun Bixue's adorable demeanor and could not resist kissing her on the forehead. "You have done well my dear. In the future, no matter what you do, know that you don't need to worry. Your husband will back you up." He wondered what was Su Lenghan thinking when he chose Miss Meng over Yun Bixue.
Yet he was also glad that
When Xie Liu came to visit Young Master Xie, he heard Young Master Xie's laughter from outside the study room. Xie Liu felt a little emotional. Since Young Master Xie had spent time together with Young Madam, Young Master Xie had started to show smiles much more often.
The sight change in the atmosphere due to Xie Liu's presence was detected immediately by Xie Limo. "Xie Liu, come in!"
Yun Bixue was feeling sleepy, and let the study room to the two of them.
Su Lenghan had not returned to the Su family villa in a long time. Seeing him home today, his mother was delighted. "Lenghan, you've returned."
"Mother, has your condition improved? I am sorry that I didn't visit you while you while hospitalized earlier."
Looking at her haggard son, his mother felt a lump in her throat. "Lenghan, I know it's tough for you out there. I'm don't want to imagine what will become of the Su family if it wasn't for you."
"Mother, looking after the Su family is my responsibility. I wouldn't call it though. I only wish for your good health."
Looking at the tiredness on Su Lenghan's face, his mother felt a bit worried. She probed, "Lenghan, I know that the Meng family has chosen to keep their hands away from the matter this time. Could it be that Miss Meng has avoided meeting with you as well?"
Looking at his mother's concerned expression, Su Lenghan couldn't bear to lie to her. He remained silent.
His mother sighed softly and said, "Sigh, since you have chosen your path, you should follow it through. All women like to hear nice things. I have met with Miss Meng that time, and I believe that she does indeed have feelings for you. You should take some time away from the company to spend with her. Things could turn out for the better that way."
Su Lenghan's elegant eyebrows frowned slightly. After a moment, he said calmly, "Mother, do you think that I've made a wrong decision?"
His mother knew he was talking about the Yun family and the Meng family. She patted the back of Su Lenghan's hand gently and said, "Lenghan, you're right. Given the circumstances that the Yun family was in at the time, it was the right decision to choose the Meng family. I know that you have done this for the sake of the Su family. However, looking at it now, looking at how tired you are, I think your responsibilities to the Su family has restricted your freedom. If it wasn't for the Su family, maybe you would have been together with Yun Bixue. She is a good girl."
"Mother, I have true feelings for Xinyan." He was sure that he had chosen Xinyan from his heart. The Yun family bankruptcy might had a part to play in his choice, but the main reason was that he feels that Meng Xinyan was talented, good-looking, gentle and charming. It was easy for him to have fallen for her.
However, now that his mother asked him, all he had felt became faint. He could no longer discern what he had felt back then.
