After finally hearing Xie Limo’s compliments, Yun Bixue’s mood lifted. She planted a kiss beside his lips as a reward and said, “You always make me happy.”
Xie Limo caressed her head and smiled indulgently. He tightened his embrace around Yun Bixue’s waist and wrapped an arm around her shoulders, refusing to let her move as he captured her lips. His kiss deepened, and it was as passionate as the sun.
Yun Bixue melted at once and could only hold onto him.
After the kiss ended, Xie Limo sighed quietly and rested his chin on her head. At that moment, he looked extraordinarily handsome as his exquisite gaze filled with endless indulgence.
Yun Bixue panted as she rested in Xie Limo’s embrace. After catching her breath, she gripped his sleeves and shut her eyes.
When Xie Limo noticed that Yun Bixue became too quiet, he lowered his head to take a look at her. After seeing that she had fallen asleep, he couldn’t help but chuckle. She was sprightly earlier in the morning but fell asleep so quickly.
He carefully moved Yun Bixue’s body, trying to make her more comfortable. But as he moved, Yun Bixue groaned softly, as though her sleep had been interrupted.
Xie Limo didn’t dare to move her anymore. He could only sit still with Yun Bixue in her arms, allowing her to continue sleeping. He thought that she must have been worn out. Last night, she had been looking through the information on the various noble families in the capital and fell asleep very late. Today, she woke up early to send Bai Yaoyao off.
It had been hard on her, both physically and emotionally. That’s why she had fallen asleep so quickly.
Xie Limo’s heart felt warm too. His wife hadn’t fallen asleep despite lying on the bed for such a long time, but did so quickly in his embrace. He understood that it was because she trusted and relied on him. That was why she slept so soundly.
Just like that, Xie Limo hugged Yun Bixue with one arm and scrolled through the latest news on the tablet with the other. He relayed instructions to Xie Jiu using the electronic system, ordering him to carry out his duties.
While he worked, Xie Limo frequently lowered his head to look at Yun Bixue. He gently adjusted her positions so that she could sleep more comfortably.
When it was almost noon, Yun Bixue finally opened her eyes in a daze. Realizing that she was still lying in Xie Limo’s arms, she was somewhat stunned.
When Yun Bixue moved, Xie Limo realized immediately that she had woken up. Lowering his head, he asked warmly, “Are you awake?”
Yun Bixue looked around and recalled how she had fallen asleep. Her cheeks flushed red as she asked, “How did I fall asleep?” It was the first time that this had happened to her.
Xie Limo rubbed her head and fixed her crumpled clothes. “You must have been exhausted, that’s why you fell asleep so quickly. Do you feel tired from hanging out with me?”
Yun Bixue shook her head. “No way. You filled my life with hope. I always felt that my heart was empty and lost. Now, I’ve finally found my direction.”
“Hmm? What direction?”
Yun Bixue blinked and didn’t answer him. She clearly knew deep down that she was working hard to get closer to her husband.
She wiggled out of Xie Limo’s embrace. When he stretched, a ‘pop’ sounded, and his muscles began to throb. Despite the soft sound, Yun Bixue still heard it. She asked anxiously, “What’s wrong?”
After a while, she finally came to a realization and apologized. “Are your arms hurting? I’ll massage them for you.”
At first, Xie Limo refused, but Yun Bixue insisted and looked at him begrudgingly, as though she would be unhappy if he rejected her. He chuckled resignedly and finally allowed her to massage his sore arms.
In fact, the soreness in his muscles didn’t bother him at all, but seeing how she massaged his arms tenderly, a myriad of emotions rippled through his heart.
