Chapter 50

Xie Jiu drove Yun Bixue back to her house, where Xie Shi stood waiting outside .

At lunchtime, Xie Limo returned home . He looked at the person in a foul mood sitting on the sofa and poured a glass of warm water . Then he sat next to Yun Bixue and asked softly, "What's wrong? Are you upset?"

Yun Bixue turned her head away . Although he did help her, she didn't get to vent all her anger at the time . It was natural that she was upset .

Looking at her biting her lips to suppress her feelings, Xie Limo couldn't bear to lecture her . He put the glass on the table, patted her head and sighed . "Couldn't you have given the matter a little more thought? Was violence the only solution?"

Yun Bixue kept her head low, and she sunk lower into the sofa . She emanated an air of loneliness and desolation . In this world, the only kin that she recognized was Grandfather and her younger sister . She had sent her sister overseas, far away from trouble, but as for Grandfather . . .

Yun Bixue's eyelashes concealed all her emotions . Xie Limo just sat there, keeping her company . After deciding that Yun Bixue had calmed down, he said slowly, "You don't have to worry about your grandfather's health . But he is old, and might not be able to withstand a further blow to his heath .

"If you don't want to make him worry, don't put yourself in danger . Don't you know how much danger you were just in?"

Yun Bixue looked up at Xie Limo, her eyes slightly red . "Limo, I don't have much family left . I want to protect what I have, but I can't . . .

"I didn't know what else I could do . I only wanted to tell them, that I'm not someone to be trifled with . They'd better not make any plans about my grandfather again!

"As for the shock that Grandfather received, it must be because he heard about my accident . I wonder what Yun Mengshi and Yang Siru told him that triggered the heart attack . "

For many years, she had grown used to shouldering all the problems by herself . Thinking, doing, and enduring everything by herself alone . Now that Xie Limo was at her side, she felt a mix of warmth and surreality . She at least had someone to talk to .

Looking at Yun Bixue in such a state, different from her usual smiling self, Xie Limo's eyes were filled with loving care .

He pulled her into his embrace and said comfortingly, "From now on, I'll be your family too . "

Perhaps she'd suffered for too long by herself . He could feel that Yun Bixue has grown used to shouldering problems on her own .

Yun Bixue's slender hands grasped Xie Limo's clothes lightly, and she rested her head on his shoulder . She closed her eyes and said gloomily, "I won't let anyone who hurt Grandfather get away scot-free . "

"Alright, I'll support anything you do, but make it a priority not to place yourself in danger . Try to tackle problems using your wits if you can . Additionally, my wife, you need to learn to rely on your husband . " Xie Limo patted Yun Bixue's back a bit awkwardly, but with a certain degree of naturalness . It was as though he was consoling a child .

Yun Bixue felt a little dazed . It was like she had returned to the past, back when she was still very young . Her parents were still alive then, and her father would sometimes pat her back in the same way that Xie Limo did, to help her go to sleep .

As she thought about those things, she couldn't help but smile . "Mr . Xie, maybe I'll become someone evil to certain people in the future . Will you then regret what you just said?"

"If you can become a little more ruthless, I can feel more at ease . Since the day you proposed to me, I've been telling you to believe in me . I also said that you won't get the chance to regret it . " Xie Limo laughed a little . He felt even more like he was soothing a little child .

Yun Bixue's eyes seemed to clear up . With him by her side, it was easy for her to calm down .

At last, Xie Limo managed to make Yun Bixue laugh . The gloomy atmosphere in the house also changed to a warm and peaceful one .

"Let's go, Madam . There are no more ingredients in the kitchen . I'll take you out for today," Xie Limo said, handing Yun Bixue a glass of water .
