Yun Bixue’s heart felt a little heavy. The capital was the political center of the whole country. It was also where the Majesty resided. Although everything appeared calm on the surface, turbulent waves were rolling beneath it.
In Ning An City, her Yun family had a solid foundation. Not only that, but Xie Limo had his men here too. That was why they could suppress any opposing force and reshuffle the seats of power.
However, once they were in the capital, things would not be so simple. No matter how powerful the Xie clan was, after hundreds of years, a separate power structure unique to the circumstances in the capital had already formed. In other words, it would be very difficult to reshuffle the powers there.
Yun Bixue’s expression was ever-changing. Her brows furrowed whenever she was troubled by her thoughts.
Xie Limo did not miss the look on his wife’s face. Seeing how she was already so tired but still appeared to be in deep thought, he felt a little helpless as he asked, “What are you thinking about? Aren’t you sleepy?”
Yun Bixue hesitated. Should she tell her Mr. Xie that she was thinking about the political scene in the capital?
Yun Bixue’s eyes glimmered as she answered, “I’m thinking that if we go to the capital, won’t there be many beauties that would charm the eyes off my Mr. Xie?”
Hearing Yun Bixue’s seemingly serious tone, Xie Limo laughed.
Yun Bixue bit her lips as she said, “I’m saying this for real.”
“My dear, you need not fret over that. Though the river spans three thousand miles, one ladle is enough to drink. The only beauty in my eyes is you, my wife.”
Yun Bixue’s heart felt much better. She had to admit that women loved hearing sweet nothings, especially if it came from the words of her lover. Those words were the most touching and charming.
As they chatted, both of them gradually fell into a deep sleep.
In Country E
Yun Bilu followed Huang Yize to the villa. She finally realized why Huang Yize brought her over tonight. It was to teach her how to dance.
The day after would be the weekend, where she would accompany Huang Yize to a ball.
Yun Bilu felt a little unhappy at first as she asked, “Why do you want me to go?”
“Do you want me to bring another dance partner then?”
Yun Bilu immediately shook her head. As long as she was alive, she would never allow Huang Yize to have any other girl by his side.
Seeing how Yun Bilu was shaking her head, Huang Yize patted her head and said, “So, accompany me to this ball.”
“What kind of ball is that?”
Huang Yize’s expression turned a little dark. How was he supposed to tell Yun Bilu that it was not a ball for the school’s charity, but instead, it was an important mission for the Black Dragon Gang?
He had thought for a long time before deciding to bring her along.
As Yun Bilu watched Huang Yize’s dark and cold expression, she could sense that this ball would not be that simple.
Huang Yize pressed on Yun Bilu’s shoulders and told her solemnly, “If I told you, it would be very dangerous…”
Yun Bilu immediately grabbed Huang Yize’s elbows and raised her head as she said, “Even if it’s very dangerous, you can’t ditch me and think of bringing another girl with you. I won’t allow it!”
A glimmer of light flashed across Huang Yize’s eyes. He hugged Yun Bilu at once and held her tight.
This girl was really smart. She could understand what he meant even without him saying much about it.
“Don’t worry. With me around, you will be safe.” Even if it cost his life, he would protect her. Moreover, no matter how dangerous it was, it would always be under his control.
Most importantly, he wanted to train Yun Bilu, starting now. After all, to be the Young Madam of the Black Dragon Gang, she really had to learn to hold her own ground.
That night, Huang Yize started to seriously teach Yun Bilu how to dance.
Although Yun Bilu knew a bit about dancing, it was still difficult for her to pick it up again after so many years. Initially, Yun Bilu could not match Huang Yize’s pace when they practiced waltzing. She kept on stepping on his feet as they danced.
“Ah! I stepped on you again!”
