Chapter 120

Yun Bixue was just about to get up when Ji Qiongxin pushed her back onto the couch . "Don't busy yourself, you can't get tired . What do you like to eat? I'll prepare it for you . "

Yun Bixue could feel her mother-in-law's enthusiasm and kindness, but she felt very uneasy at not doing anything at all .

After the pickled fish had been served, Xie Limo pulled Yun Bixue over to the side . "Mother, watch the television if you're bored . I can't manage by myself, and I need Bixue's help . "

Hearing Xie Limo's words, Yun Bixue finally heaved a sigh of relief . She rushed into the kitchen with Xie Limo .

Ji Qiongxin pretended to be unhappy and whined, "Child, why don't you feel bad for my daughter-in-law? What if she feels tired?"

"Mother, enough . She's not used to you being like that . She'll feel intimidated . " Xie Limo had been familiar with his mother's temperament since his childhood . She usually appeared indifferent like a goddess, but after getting to know someone, she would be fully devoted to treating them well .

His mother regarded only a few people like that . One of them was his father, and the other was him . Now, she was treating her daughter-in-law that way too .

He felt glad deep down . Bixue had lacked motherly love since her childhood, and he felt more thrilled than anyone else at knowing that his mother treated her well . However, Bixue would definitely not be able to adapt to her initial display of over-enthusiasm .

Thus, they both needed time and space to accommodate and adjust to each other's personalities .

Ji Qiongxin pondered and nodded . "You're right . Go and get busy . I'll watch some tv and update myself on Ning An City's affairs . "

When Xie Limo entered the kitchen, Yun Bixue was patting down on her chest and exhaling audibly . He stepped forward and encased her in his arms from the back . "Why? Do you not like Mother?"

"No, I think your mother is truly great . For a moment, I felt that I was experiencing motherly love, but for some reason, I feel afraid, like I shouldn't try to welcome these feelings . Hey, do you think I'm a coward?" She'd always heard that the relationships between mothers and their daughters-in-law were difficult to manage, but she genuinely felt so fortunate to have met not only a husband who pampered her, but also a wonderful mother-in-law .

Her mother-in-law's concern and gentleness could certainly melt her heart, and it made her feel as though she was re-experiencing her mother's love .

Xie Limo gave a soft sigh and hugged her even more tightly . After the two of them got together, he learned about her past . Therefore, he pampered and doted on her, showering her with all the love that she had lacked .

However, he still couldn't replace the form of indulgence that could only be offered by her parents . He only wished for her to be happy .

Yun Bixue enjoyed the warmth from his embrace and quickly suppressed her feelings . She turned around and said, "Limo, it's almost noon . Mother must be starving, so let's hurry and get cooking!"

Xie Limo nodded, and the couple worked harmoniously . After a while, eight dishes, and a century egg congee were completed .

"Aunty, the dishes are done . But I'm not sure if they'll suit your taste . " Yun Bixue passed the chopsticks to Ji Qiongxin before scooping a bowl of rice and placing it before her .

Ji Qiongxin's eyes lit up . "Yes, these are all things that I like . "

Xie Limo chuckled by the side . "Mother, you have no idea . Ever since she found out that you were coming, she's been so nervous . She asked me about everything—about what you liked to eat and your favorite color . She insisted on buying everything personally, saying that it's only respectful to select everything in person . "

Yun Bixue lowered her head in embarrassment and eyed Xie Limo with disapproval . Should he be saying that?

Xie Limo met the challenge and complaint in Yun Bixue's dainty eyes . An indulging glint of light flashed across his exquisite eyes, and he continued, "Mother, you shouldn't tease her . She's shy . Yesterday, she was even looking everywhere to prepare her makeup . "
