As Meng Xinyan watched the scene before her, she clenched her jaw out of jealousy and her face contorted. Why? Why is Young Master Xie so caring towards Yun Bixue?
The rage within Meng Xinyan escalated bit by bit.
The scene that Su Lenghan had just witnessed stung his eyes for a second, but he thought nothing more of it.
On another day, when this scene would flash back in his head abruptly, he would be suffering from endless regrets.
If he had reconsidered his choices back then, and paid attention to what his heart told him, would it be less difficult for him to redeem himself by then?
However, no matter how much anguish he felt at that point in time, it was of no use.
Xie Limo peeked at the couple's reactions through the corners of his eyes, and his lips curved up faintly. On the other hand, as he gazed at Yun Bixue, his eyes showed unparalleled affection.
"Okay, we'll continue shopping, but we're going to rest once we get tired." As he spoke, he wrapped his arm around Yun Bixue's shoulders and guided her forward gently and tenderly.
As they strode past Su Lenghan and Meng Xinyan, Xie Limo exuded a sharp and imposing aura. "Young Master Su, Miss Meng, please continue shopping. I will accompany Xue-er."
Meng Xinyan almost chewed through her teeth. Why was Yun Bixue so fortunate?
When Yun Bixue snapped out of her daze, she realized that she had forgotten about the couple just now.
As she watched how Meng Xinyan desperately wanted to eat her alive, Yun Bixue beamed. She lightly poked a finger at Xie Limo's waist. "Limo, did you do that on purpose? Meng Xinyan looked like she wanted to bite my head off."
A hint of alluring light flashed across Xie Limo's eyes, and he softly replied, "My dear, you've wrongly accused me. Am I not like this on a normal day too?"
Yun Bixue thought it over He was right; he always pampered her every day, so there wasn't really anything special about today. No, wait. "Limo, you don't normally call me 'Xue-er'."
"Could it be that my dear doesn't like it?"
Yun Bixue's face blushed. She couldn't bring herself to admit that she did. Picking up her pace, she arrived at a boutique. As she browsed through the clothes, she tried to borrow some time to quell the fire she felt inside her.
What was going on with her? Why could she never contain herself every time her husband seduced her with his charms and melodious voice?
She had to concede that her husband's voice was indeed uniquely compelling. His mellow tones enthralled her, and his voice tickled the deepest parts of her heart like a feather, sending ripples through her.
Both Su Lenghan and Meng Xinyan couldn't help but watch the silhouettes of the couple as they left. To everyone, they looked like a well-suited pair.
Meng Xinyan was reminded of the recent problems in her relationship with Su Lenghan, and feelings of sorrow and jealousy welled up in her heart. She had never desired for things to be like that, but she always failed to control herself.
Furthermore, she didn't know why, but her father was suddenly paying more attention to Meng Xintong. She was clueless to the tricks that Meng Xintong had pulled, but she seemed to be glowing. She had never been a valued member of the family, and the outsiders weren't even aware that the Meng family had another older daughter.
One day, someone had even addressed Meng Xinyan as 'the second daughter of the Meng family', and she threw a fit right away. Su Lengxian was also a devious and tricky opponent.
The more she deliberated, the more distressed she felt.
She tugged at Su Lenghan's arm and murmured, "Lenghan, let's go over and take a look too!"
Su Lenghan's body stiffened. In the past, he hadn't thought much of Meng Xinyan's voice, but now he felt that something was off and seemingly unnatural. It was exceedingly different from the coquettish tone that Yun Bixue and Xie Limo had used earlier.
"Lenghan, what's wrong?"
Su Lenghan shook his head. "Nothing." Perhaps he was reading too much into it.
There had been too many things going on at the same time, and he was truly worn out. He was supposed to attend a meeting today, but with Meng Xinyan pestering him to go on a shopping trip, he could only delay it. Otherwise, Meng Xinyan would be suspicious of him.
Moreover, with the recent episodes plaguing the Su family, the matter revolving around Lengxian could only be suppressed so long as the outsiders focused on the positive relationship between the Su and Meng families.
