Chapter 84

After the day of the speech, Yun Bixue was seething with anger and her complexion was pale for the next few days . In the end, Yun Bixue only brightened up after Yang Mei placed the information on the investigation on the table .

After reviewing the information, Yun Bixue tightly clenched her fists and her lips curled up into a faint yet bloodthirsty curve . For daring to hurt Xie Limo, just wait for her revenge .

At night, Yun Bixue returned home early . Xie Limo wasn't back yet and so she personally whipped up a meal .

"Young Madam, we can do that for you," Xie Shiyi said respectfully after watching Yun Bixue bustling around in the kitchen .

Yun Bixue shook her head . "Xie Shiyi, you don't need to be so worried . I can do it . You may leave . "

"Yes . " Recently, Xie Shiyi had been obeying all of the Young Madam's commands . After the car accident, she had been deported to the overseas headquarters . If it hadn't been for Young Madam, the Xie family would have already forsaken her . To a loyal household servant, this was more excruciating than death .

Thus, she once again returned to Young Madam and was especially glad . Furthermore, before her return, Young Master Xie had given the order that her future master would be Young Madam . She had to place her safety as top priority and dedicate her loyalty to her .

Yun Bixue hummed while cooking . To her, this was her home, and cooking for Limo was a form of enjoyment . Furthermore, he had been swamped with work recently and came home drained every day . He hadn't been eating properly and her heart ached for him .

Yun Bixue became lost in her thoughts . Yes, her heart ached . Unknowingly, she had placed him on a pedestal . She used to crave for a home and now that she possessed one, she treasured it immensely .

When Xie Limo returned, he smelled the aroma of food just as he was removing his clothes . As he walked into the kitchen, he saw a silhouette scrambling around inside . A look of profound warmth spread across his face and his eyes glittered . A faint loving smile tugged at the corners of his lips .

Yun Bixue felt a presence behind her and glanced back, her brows arching up as she smiled . "You're back! Go and rest first . There's only the congee left to be cooked . It'll take a while to be done . "

A gleam of light flashed across Xie Limo's alluring and charming eyes before he stepped forward to hug Yun Bixue by the waist . Lowering his head, he gently kissed her lips and caressed her lightly, generating a rush of electricity that made her tremble .

Yun Bixue almost lost her balance . Gently pushing Xie Limo aside, she lowered her head—her earlobes were red . "My body smells like grease . Go change first and then come down . " Every piece of clothing on Xie Limo was expensive . The Xie family hired a personal tailoring team and every piece, regardless of workmanship or material, was top-notch . They were also commercially unavailable and did not have a brand label attached . However, she understood that the cost was hefty .

Xie Limo admired the shy and flushed expression that Yun Bixue displayed because of him . Showing a gentle and affectionate smile, he said, "Okay . " He then stroked her hair and finally left the kitchen . Returning to his bedroom, he changed out of his shirt into a comfortable set of clothes and walked down again .

Yun Bixue set the congee on the table properly . Seeing Xie Limo wearing comfortable home clothes, she couldn't help feeling affected . Her husband's body naturally had the proportions of a mannequin and he looked stunning in everything . The color white especially accentuated his magnificent and elegant aura .

Ever since she saw him wearing white that day, she would intentionally buy clothes in the same color . Back then she had yet to learn that her husband's clothes were all specially tailor-made .

However, she still enjoyed watching him . Whenever Xie Limo put on the clothes she bought for him, the seemingly ordinary outfit would look stunning .

Xie Limo lowered his head and observed the shining look in Yun Bixue's eyes . His heart softened as a tinge of elation bubbled up . He was glad that he could attract his wife's attention with his appearance .

"It's all done . Come and eat!" Yun Bixue happily passed the chopsticks to Xie Limo and then sat down for the meal .

Xie Limo received the chopsticks but placed it to the side . He then concentrated on picking up the fried prawns and removing the shells . After placing them in a bowl, he passed them over to Yun Bixue . "Eat, but don't eat too much . " He had only just discovered that his wife liked prawns but did not like to deshell them .

Yun Bixue picked up the deshelled prawns without holding back and ate them . Because she felt highly satisfied, her whole mouth was now dirty .

Xie Limo wiped off the grease around her lips . "Eating just like a child . " Although he said those words, his tone was filled with deep indulgence .

This reminded Yun Bixue of when she was young, when her parents were still around . She had enjoyed the warmth of having a family and her parents' love back then . She recalled how they used to spoil her in a similar way, but it had already been many years since she had been able to experience this feeling again .

Thus, she felt afraid—afraid that she would lose him, especially on the day of the inauguration speech . When the sound of the gunshot rang, she could feel her heart almost stopping . Luckily, she could see him beside her in great health now .

So from now on, she knew she had to grow stronger .

After eating, she cleaned the utensils and the two of them entered the study room . Yun Bixue passed the investigated information to Xie Limo . "I had this investigated recently . The Jia family must be truly desperate this time to dare treat you that way . "

Xie Limo caressed Yun Bixue's hair in a pampering manner and said, "The Jia family wouldn't have dared to execute this if they were acting alone . "

Yun Bixue frowned and asked, "Did the Shen family instigate them?"

"It might not be the Shen family's instigation . It could also be because the Jia family became the center of social attention for the mining accident . To remove all suspicion from them, the Shen family orchestrated all of this to point the accident to me . . . "

"So the Jia family believed that as long as they killed you and found a local resident to become the leader, they could then control the media and no one could act against them again? What a well-thought-out plan!"

Xie Limo's slender fingers lightly tapped on the surface of the table; his eyes surged with darkness . "These rotten apples should have been dealt with a long time ago . Rest assured, my dear, I will handle this myself . You only need to relax and be a good wife . " As he spoke, he gently pulled Yun Bixue into his arms .

He had actually checked on the matter a while back but didn't want to worry her and so he skimmed over the details . However, he didn't expect that her reason for bustling around these past few days was to investigate on this matter .

He didn't know how to not pamper her when she acted like this .

And with his agility, the bullet still wouldn't be able to hit him even if it came from outside . The speed of the bullet was still slower than his dexterity . In addition, he'd also put on a bulletproof vest .

In his embrace, Yun Bixue lifted her head and asked dully, "But I don't want to just stand to the side . I want to do something to protect you . "

Xie Limo felt a tremor run through his chest, and he smiled joyfully . "Okay, I know how you feel . However, there are plenty of rich and influential families in Ning An City . If you want to target one of them, you need to have a comprehensive plan . Otherwise, your actions will cause a butterfly effect . "

After thinking it over, Yun Bixue nodded . "I understand . You have your own things to consider . After all, these rich and influential families are joining forces to hurt you and that's indeed disadvantageous . So we should find a way to destroy them by searching for unfavourable evidence tied to those families . Whether it's employing threats or temptations, we have to make sure they're truthful . " As Yun Bixue spoke, her eyes darkened and her fists clenched tighter .
