Those talents that Xie Limo groomed would eventually become his important subordinates.
For his peace of mind, he needed them to be loyal, but before that, Qin Huailing had already impressed him.
Qin Huailing looked at Xie Limo and said, “Young Master Xie, thank you. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have any hope for my future.”
A playful curve appeared on Xie Limo’s lips. “You look like an ordinary teenager now. You’re smiling, and you look as bright as you should. You don’t look cold now.”
Qin Huailing was taken aback. He didn’t expect Xie Limo to say such things to him. He sounded just like what an elder brother would, and it made his heart turn warm.
He thought that Young Master Xie was someone who could make a person fear him, but he could warm one up like a ray of sunlight. He was a man of contradiction, but Qin Huailing was glad that he could work with Young Master Xie, instead of against him.
It was much better to feel his warmth than his murderous intent.
This year, he had witnessed what Young Master Xie was capable of, and it made him feel glad that he had saved Yun Bixue before. Indeed, you reap what you sow.
Because of this, he finally had a chance to heal his legs.
“Young Master Xie, I’m merely younger than you by a few years. Do I really look like a teenager?”
“If you pretend to be naive and innocent, no one would be able to tell what you’re really thinking.”
Hearing Xie Limo’s words, Qin Huailing’s heart skipped a beat. This was a gentle reminder by Young Master Xie—his face could protect him.
Qin Huailing’s heart accelerated in shock. He thought that in order to talk to Young Master Xie, one needed to have a strong heart. Unconsciously, one could be easily influenced by him. Not only that, but his every word held a deeper meaning. If one were to listen attentively, they would be able to benefit greatly.
With a surprised look, he answered, “Thank you!”
“You learn fast. There’s no need to thank me.” Xie Limo smiled calmly. He liked talking to intelligent people as they understood him immediately.
After hearing those words, Qin Huailing also realized another issue. Young Master Xie was going to the capital very soon. “You’re going there soon, right?”
“Yes, the capital has been rushing me to go there, but I have to settle the things here in Ning An City first. Besides, Bixue has tasks to finish here too. We have to take our time to do things as speeding things up would not be good in the long run.”
Qin Huailing nodded, agreeing with him.
The two of them chatted for a while. Before leaving, Xie Limo said, “Miss Yuan, the daughter of the Yuan family, will be engaged to Majesty Kang very soon. You probably haven’t heard about this, so I’m letting you know. You’re free to do what you think is appropriate.”
Qin Huailing’s face paled as his lips twitched. Regardless of how prepared he was, it still startled him to hear that news. The daughter of the Yuan family had been the lady who stayed by his side back then. Now, everything had changed. She no longer belonged to him.
He merely harbored hatred towards the Yuan family now.
Shutting his eyes, Qin Huailing clenched his jaw and said, “Thank you. I know what to do.”
“I’ll just give you a reminder—tolerance!”
“Yes!” Qin Huailing understood that he had to bear with it. Otherwise, all the effort that he had put in for the past few years would go down the drain.
After Xie Limo left, Qin Huailing broke out in a cold sweat. Nevertheless, it was beneficial for his body to sweat it out. Since the start of the year, his body had lacked warmth and had always been cold. As he underwent treatment for his legs, his old ailments seemed to be fading too.

After waiting for a long time, Xirong Ziye finally received some news about Bai Yaoyao. His subordinates reported that Bai Yaoyao had shown up in Ning An City in Country A.
