Hearing Yun Bixue’s reply, a glimmer of light flashed across Xie Limo’s exquisite and alluring eyes. He lightly pinched her nose and said, “Not bad. Your memory has improved.”
Yun Bixue took Xie Limo’s hand away from her nose. “Before the wedding, I have to make sure I’m safe and sound. I know this very well.”
“Not just for now. You must ensure your safety at all times.”
Yun Bixue snickered when she saw Xie Limo’s stern expression. “Hubby, I heard that a belt can tie up a person. Do you want to try it?”
Xie Limo shook his head resignedly and said, “What a smooth-talker you are now?”
“This is not smooth-talking, this is reasoning.”
“Alright, you’re being reasonable then. I’m getting late, so I better leave now. Have a good rest.”
After Xie Limo left, Yun Bixue remained on the bed to rest. However, she was thinking about the current situation in Ning An City. On the surface, it looked like everything was peaceful and calm, with everyone focusing their energies on expanding the economy, but she had a nagging feeling that something was amiss.
Even though she thought hard about it, she could not think of anything wrong.
After struggling with that thought for a long while, Yun Bixue could not come up with anything and just sighed. She decided to stop dwelling on it and let things take its natural course.
Xie Limo arrived at a medical base in Ning An City and entered with his fingerprint to gain access.
It was like a mini villa that was remarkably elegant and quiet. There were several big rooms inside, all equipped with the most advanced medical equipment. They were suitable for surgeries and for one to recuperate.
Seeing an elderly man, with hair as white as a crane’s feather and a ruddy complexion, Xie Limo greeted him. “Elder Wusun.”
When the elderly man saw Xie Limo, he said, “You’re here. That kid is not bad. He’s pretty resilient. He’s undergoing acupuncture treatment now, and it will be done after an hour.”
Xie Limo knew that this kind of ancient Huaxia acupuncture had long been lost. Elder Wusun was the only person who could perform it. He asked, “Can I go in and take a look?”
When Xie Limo reached the room that Qin Huailing was in, he saw him lying there with his leg full of acupuncture needles. Without moving an inch, his body was drenched in cold sweat as he withstood the pain.
Three of Elder Wusun’s assistants watched him from the side.
Xie Limo just kept quiet and did not say a word. He knew that such acupuncture treatment required ultimate concentration. Even Qin Huailing could not move his body around and had to breathe steadily. If the needle went out of place, this acupuncture session would be wasted at the minimum. In the worst-case scenario, it would even injure his body further.
Once the time was up, Elder Wusun removed all the needles. When all of them were removed, Qin Huailing could finally move.
It was only then that Qin Huailing noticed Xie Limo’s presence. His eyes were filled with gratitude for him.
Xie Limo waved him off before he could say anything. He only asked, “Do you feel your legs now?”
Qin Huailing’s eyes glimmered radiantly as he nodded and replied, “Yeah. I didn’t feel anything before, but after drinking the medicine and undergoing acupuncture consistently, I started to feel my legs again since yesterday.” When he remembered that he actually felt pain, he became so overwhelmed with emotions that he almost jumped up.
“Not bad. I came here to tell you some news. I found information on the Yuan family for you, including the one on the incident back then and the daughter of the Yuan family.”
Hearing Xie Limo’s words, Qin Huailing’s expression changed as he asked, “Everyone in the Yuan family, including her?”
Xie Limo nodded. “Yeah. Even if the daughter of the Yuan family doesn’t stay in the Yuan household, as long as one is determined, her whereabouts can be tracked. I’ll pass the information on to you. Once your legs are fully recovered, you can see what to do about it. I can only help you up to this point, so the rest is up to you.”
