After accounting for some matters with Yang Mei, Yun Bixue darted up to the study room and occupied the seat where Xie Limo usually sat. She grabbed a sheet of paper and listed out the items she needed to buy, as well as the dishes she had to prepare for every meal.
After taking a shower, Xie Limo headed to the bedroom but didn't see his wife around. Walking out of the room, he noticed that the lights in the study room were still switched on, and he went over. Looking at how his wife was deep in thought, he couldn't help but let out a chuckle.
Watching how adorable and muddled she appeared, his heart stirred, sending waves and ripples through it.
He leaned lazily against the door and silently studied his wife. It was as if he couldn't get enough of her, even though he didn't know what she was writing about that made her so engrossed.
Yun Bixue felt jittery as she wrote. Reviewing what she had jotted down, she crossed out everything and started writing again. She did this repeatedly, forgetting about her husband. In her heart, she was only thinking about her mother-in-law, and she wanted to present herself well.
She might not have a mother, but she would be good to Xie Limo's mother.
Finally, it was nine at night when Xie Limo checked the time. He shook his head and chuckled resignedly. Walking to a spot behind Yun Bixue, his exquisite eyes glistened when he noticed the things that she was writing on the paper. He laughed softly, "My dear, could you read out everything you just wrote for your husband?"
Yun Bixue was startled and frantically covered the piece of paper in her hands. "Nothing is written on it." She was just like a child, fearing that he would mock her.
After spending some time by Xie Limo's side, she realized that he was a genius who seemingly knew everything. She, however, paled in comparison to him.
Xie Limo leaned forward slightly and pinched a corner of the paper with his slender fingers. He spoke clearly, "My dear, I've already read through it."
Yun Bixue could only release her grip and muttered under her breath, "You're not allowed to tease me." Her husband possessed a photographic memory; since he had already seen it, there was no point in her covering it up.
At this moment, she realized that she would be fully in his embrace if she tried leaning backward. She smelled that faint and distinct fragrance that belonged only to him, and she felt intoxicated. She shook her head wildly, trying to discard the thoughts in her mind.
However, the harder she tried, the more absent-minded she felt. She recalled the time she saw his jade-like skin and how her eyes had almost popped out of her head. He had a chiseled body, and she simply couldn't describe it with mere words.
On the piece of paper, Xie Limo examined the list of items to be bought, the dishes to be prepared, and the things to take note of, and his lips curled into a gentle smile. She was truly his wife; how could he not pamper her?
When Xie Limo lowered his head, he saw his wife spacing out. He asked gently, "My dear, what are you thinking about?"
Without a second thought, Yun Bixue answered, "Thinking about you!" After she said it, she desperately wanted to bite her tongue off and hide in a hole. She lowered her head more and more, and her face flushed. Even her earlobes started turning red from embarrassment.
Xie Limo's exquisite aura grew warmer. After being together for so long, his wife was still so bashful. He needed to come up with a solution; if his mother arrived and saw such a sight, what would she think?
With that thought in mind, Xie Limo cast the piece of paper aside and lightly wrapped his arm around Yun Bixue's waist. He lowered his head slightly and gently kissed her forehead. He teased, "So you have been thinking about me!"
Yun Bixue's heart jumped uncontrollably. Just as she was about to shake her head, she looked up and met Xie Limo's alluring gaze. Her soul felt like it was caught in a trap, and her mind went blank. She involuntarily moaned his name, "Limo!"
