Qin Huailing was perplexed. He locked his clear, piercing gaze on Xie Limo and asked, “Why did you help me so much?”
Seeing how Qin Huailing was so eager to know, Xie Limo told him, “Although you chose the right side, it wasn’t worth such a huge effort from me. The biggest part was because of that time in Forest Green in Zi Bei City. When the men of sacrifice from the Du and Zheng families ambushed my wife, you extended a helping hand. That help from you is enough for me to do all these things for you.”
Hearing Xie Limo’s words, Qin Huailing finally understood. He could not help feeling fortunate that the help he had extended previously to Yun Bixue earned him this much.
In fact, he did not think too much about it at that time. His first thought was just to save Yun Bixue.
He felt a wave of emotions as he thought of how that moment of kindness earned him so much more in return.
Suddenly, Qin Huailing’s expression changed. He turned to look at Xie Limo in the eye and found that his eyes were like deep black vortexes. He asked, “How did you know about this matter?” He knew that Yun Bixue did not tell Xie Limo about this and even instructed her not to mention anything about it.
In Yun Bixue’s words, it was because she did not want Xie Limo to be worried.
Xie Limo just smiled. “If I want to know, you think I won’t be able to?”
Qin Huailing’s heart skipped a beat. He suddenly felt small in front of the Young Master Xie standing before him. This man was superbly strong. He had an aura like he controlled the world.
Qin Huailing suddenly felt gratified that he did not stand on the wrong side. He sensed a chill running down his spine as he thought about how those prestigious and influential families that were against Young Master Xie disappeared one by one.
“What do you not know?”
“There might be something or nothing at all. I will usually know the things that I want to know, but there’s one person in Country A who’s an exception to that.”
Qin Huailing was stunned. In a shocked voice, he asked, “Who?” He could not imagine who could evade Xie Limo’s probe.
Xie Limo did not attempt to hide it either. Once Qin Huailing asked, he replied, “It’s Wang Qianjin, the young master of the Wang family!”
“Wang Qianjin?” Qin Huailing felt like his brain was too slow for a moment. No matter how much he thought about it, his thoughts were limited to just Ning An City, Zi Bei City, and Tian Jing City. He had never really thought about things happening in the south.
Xie Limo knew what Qin Huailing was thinking. He suggested, “If you want to go far, you must think of the big picture by looking at the situation in Country A on the whole. That will broaden your perspective and ensure that you will cover all aspects of things.”
Qin Huailing sank into deep thought as he nodded his head. “Many thanks. I understand now. The Northern Xie and Southern Wang is real?”
Xie Limo nodded. “It’s real. Since you’re on my side, you should think about it carefully too.”
“Don’t worry, Young Master Xie. Your opponent is my opponent as well.” As Qin Huailing said that, he placed his hand over his heart and slightly lowered his head, showing his sincere loyalty to Xie Limo through this gesture.
As Xie Limo was about to leave, Qin Huailing could not help but ask, “Back then in Forest Green, she was really brave and strong. I’ve never seen a woman like that. She was clearly scared to death, but she remained firm and did her best. I think you’re the reason behind her motivation to be so resilient. Actually, she didn’t want you to know, but now that you do, don’t—”
Xie Limo cut off Qin Huailing’s words and said, “You don’t need to worry about this. I will naturally be the one protecting my wife. The past is in the past. However, one of the forces who participated in that ambush was from Tian Jing City.”
“Tian Jing City?”
Xie Limo answered, “That’s right. Tian Jing City. Revenge will come very soon for them.” As he said that, a dangerous glint flashed in his eyes.
