Chapter 56

An Yexuan's stern face turned cold . His slender fingers pinched the handle of the tea cup, and he took a slow sip . He said blandly, "There's no need to fetch her back . Let's eat, everyone!"

Master Meng knew that the An family's heir was talented and scheming . He was also mysterious and unpredictable, and Master Meng could not comprehend why he agreed to a meal at the Meng's . With decades of experience, Master Meng had considered himself to be adequate at reading people, but he couldn't see through An Yexuan at all . No one could decipher the latter's mind .

By the time Miao Zifu arrived at the Meng family home in a woeful state, they had already finished their meal . This time, Chen Pei no longer looked at Miao Zifu as earnestly as before, but instead with a hint of derision .

Similarly, Meng Xinyan no longer acted as intimately with her as before . Their attitudes dampened Miao Zifu's heart and her feelings of humiliation and unjustice intensified . Just wait, she would make these people regret this .

When she left with An Yexuan, Miao Zifu continued to be absent-minded and An Yexuan didn't ask after her . When it came to Miao Zifu's presence, he neither rejected it nor attempted to get closer .

Miao Zifu walked out the doors of the Meng family home . Looking back at Su Lenghan and Meng Xinyan, her heart swelled with envy . The couple had already started to discuss their marriage, yet she didn't know when she could finally occupy a space in An Yexuan's heart .

After Yun Bixue and Xie Limo returned home, she washed her hands and started to prepare the food . Recalling her grandfather, she still felt worried .

"Grandfather's health is fine . I've sent some people to guard him, and there won't be anyone disturbing his rest . Nanchen has gone over too . You can rest assured and prepare the meal . When Grandfather is awake, I'll make sure to inform you first . "

Yun Bixue could finally sigh in relief . Her grandfather was in the ICU, and she could only wait outside . With the top-grade doctor, Ling Nanchen, around, she felt more at ease .

Yun Bixue put on an apron, and Xie Limo walked forward to tie a bow on her back . Yun Bixue could feel him coming closer . He was as beautiful as snow, as elegant as a flower and was simply dazzling . Her heart tensed up involuntarily .

Xie Limo looked as Yun Bixue long hair tumbled around her; it was smooth like satin yet somewhat of a hindrance . He found a hairband and lightly bundled her hair up .

At this moment, it was as if time had stopped and she blanked out . It seemed as though every action could appear graceful if Xie Limo was the one doing it . His hand combed through her hair, and she recalled her feelings earlier that day when his hand glided across her skin . She blushed involuntarily and stood there awkwardly .

"Limo, are you done?"

Xie Limo's eyes swirled darkly as he looked down at his wife's reddened earlobes . His lips curled as he said, "Done . "

Because of this small incident, Yun Bixue couldn't concentrate on cooking . When she cut the vegetables, a cry rang out . She'd cut her finger .

On the sofa, Xie Limo resignedly helped Yun Bixue cleanse the wound and put on a band-aid .

Looking at the silent Xie Limo, Yun Bixue felt anxious . "Am I too clumsy?" She'd wanted to prepare a sumptuous meal, but it ended up like this . If it weren't for him, she wouldn't have been distracted .

Xie Limo nodded . "You're quite clumsy, always getting hurt . " With how things had rolled out, it looked like he shouldn't count on her to prepare their meals anymore .

In the afternoon, Yun Bixue dashed to the Yun family ancestral home right after lunch . "Yang Mei, you handled today's affairs very well!" Yang Mei's skills at operating the computer were internationally acclaimed and hacking into the supermarket's CCTV system was easy for her . It was just that she looked masculine—with sharp facial features and a neat buzz cut . In fact, Yun Bixue had mistaken her for a man the first time they met .

"Miss, that's something your subordinates should be able to do," Yang Mei replied . To her, protecting Yun Bixue was a given .
