Chapter 11

After Yun Bixue was done bathing and put on her clothes, she stood silently in the bathroom, her heart steadily turned cold as ice .

She could feel her hands trembling and her face was incomparably pale . She was biting harshly on her lips, extracting blood, yet it seemed unbeknownst to her .

She heard all the commotion from outside . She could hardly bear hearing those distasteful and derogatory words .

"Knock knock . . . " A gentle tapping sounded, yet Yun Bixue was disoriented as if fixated on a thought . Her vision turned black .

"Can I enter?" He hesitated . There was no sound coming from inside the bathroom . Xie Limo frowned .

He knocked and inquired again, only to draw no response . The beauty in Xie Limo's face contorted, as he drew out a card to swipe the door open . He closed the door after he entered the room, and the sight before him made him tremble .

Yun Bixue laid on the floor, powerless and pale . From her palms seeped a small amount of blood, seemingly caused by the digging of her nails . Her lips had been gnawed at, stained by streaks of blood . She laid there lifelessly as if she had taken her last breath .

At this moment, a sense of sympathy manifested within Xie Limo . He had never seen a woman in such a self-inflicted state of despondency, nor a woman who was unable to fend for herself . He wondered how she had managed to grow and mature .

Lastly, he sighed faintly and pulled her into his arms . He checked for her pulse and performed emergency compressions on several acupuncture points .

He then gave a call . "Within ten minutes, expel all the reporters in the Luxury Emperor Golden Rooftop Room 6 . "

Sure enough, sounds of cameras being smashed outside were heard, accompanied by the clamor of the hoard of reporters .

When the security guards finally evacuated the last reporter, the house was left in peaceful tranquility .

Xie Limo then carried Yun Bixue to the big bed, and everything quietened .

Yun Bixue only arose two hours later . Her heavy-lidded eyes showed purity and delicacy as if she needed to rely on something .

"You finally woke up . You must have been frightened earlier . Drink this milk . " With no questions, Xie Limo passed the glass of milk to Yun Bixue .

The scene earlier reminded Yun Bixue of a childhood trauma . Her desolate and forlorn heart warmed up bit by bit as she clutched the glass of heated milk in her hands . "Thank you for saving me again . "

"No problem . Living in the heart of society's struggles, you should get accustomed to such episodes . To prevent cumbersome situations from transpiring, you first need to toughen yourself—through protecting yourself, rather than evading the circumstances . " Xie Limo lifted his hand and glanced at his watch, appearing to have other concerns . Yet he remained attentive to Yun Bixue as he advised her .

"I only . . . Only . . . " She had not been able to learn from her grandfather to be merciless . Otherwise, she would not have allowed herself to be plotted against by others . She had not wanted to reach the point where even she could no longer recognize herself .

Noticing the uncertainty clouding Yun Bixue's eyes, the corners of Xie Limo's lips curved up lightly and at that moment, it was as if hundreds of flowers had bloomed simultaneously . "Sometimes, the more soft-hearted you are, the fewer retreat routes you have . "

Yun Bixue nodded as she repeated the comforting words of Xie Limo, evidently in deep thought .

After leaving the room, Yun Bixue felt unwell . She had wasted more than a days' time and was running out of options . As she inspected the document, she discovered that for it to be effective, marriage was a premise, and the opposite party must have a sufficiently wealthy background .

As she reviewed the document and continued her way, a rumor had been broadcasted across the entire Ning An City . Almost everyone was gossiping about the woman who had spent a night with Young Master Xie .
