Chapter 31

Yun Bixue's heart warmed and happiness lit up in her eyes . She ambled down the stairs and toward the side of the table . Looking at the appetizing dinner, her stomach rumbled again .

Hearing the noises coming from her stomach, Yun Bixue felt embarrassed . She didn't even have lunch and she was starving .

The lips of Xie Limo's pale pink lips hooked upward, showing off an alluring curve . Arranging the chopsticks properly, he said warmly, "You must be hungry . Go wash your hands and come back for your meal . " His speech emanated a sense of kindness and indulgence .

Although Yun Bixue nodded, her eyes stung slightly . Having suffered for many years, what she really wanted was a loving family that she could call hers .

She now had one and regardless of what the future held, she would strive to protect it .

While dining, Xie Limo was as attentive as before . He served her food and educated her on nutritious items that she should consume more .

Likewise, Yun Bixue also scooped food for Xie Limo . Although it was only the two of them sharing a meal, it was still heart-warming .

After the meal, Xie Limo informed Yun Bixue that he had to visit Tian Jing City for a meeting and could be away for a few days .

Yun Bixue understood . All who had held power over Ning An city had to first attend a meeting in Tian Jing City before his officiation .

"You should stay near and be under the protection of Xie Shiyi at all times . If any matters arise, call Xie Liu . Otherwise, you can call my private number as well, it's a number only for you . " The next day when Yun Bixue woke up, she recalled the words that Xie Limo whispered into her ears last night .

For the next consecutive days, her days were busy but fulfilling . She visited only three locations, hurrying from the hospital to the ancestral house to her new home .

Ever since the rumors that painted them in a positive light spread, the media seemed to be continually holding their silence .

The newspapers no longer published any information on Miss Yun and that granted her some peace .

That day, just as she exited the hospital, a middle-aged man approached her from the opposite direction . Bending down, he said, "Miss, Old Madam wishes to see you . "

Yun Bixue knitted her brows and sneered, "Sorry, Uncle Liu, I am busy today . I will return to see Old Lady when I have time . "

After experiencing the Yun family's bankruptcy and her grandfather's grave illness, she was thoroughly disappointed with that old lady .

Hearing Yun Bixue nonchalantly addressing her as Old Lady startled Uncle Liu . Regaining his composure, he said, "Miss, Old Madam said that giving excuses is simply being unfilial . If you are not afraid of being mocked, Old Madam would also not be . "

Yun Bixue could discern the threatening tone in his words . The rich in Ning An City were not only strict in discipline but also placed a heavy emphasis on filial piety .

The Old Lady had never been a benevolent person . Even though her grandfather had not been fond of her for many years, he had no choice but to maintain the marriage .

Yun Bixue squinted and glared at Uncle Liu . "I will return home this afternoon . Since I have to be filial, I cannot turn up empty-handed . "

Uncle Liu felt confused why the Miss he met today was different from before . Being stared at so intently, he felt coldness down his spine .

After Uncle Liu left, Xie Shiyi received a text from Yun Bixue and came to her . "Young Madam, do you really want to return to the Yun's?"

Yun Bixue nodded . "I must attend such a banquet . I want to see what tricks the Old Lady has up her sleeves . "

"Young Madam, Young Master Xie instructed your subordinates to protect you before he left . "

Yun Bixue nodded . "Yes, get changed and you will be leaving with me . " She needed to be prepared, of course .

Instructing Xie Shiyi to purchase some items, Yun Bixue arrived at the old mansion in Xishan all dressed up . After making a call, she entered the Yun family home with Xie Shiyi .
