Xie Limo tightened his grasp on Yun Bixue's hand. He knew that she had suffered a fair bit in the past, but with him around, no one would dare to take advantage of her in the future. Even he couldn't bear to reprimand her, how could others do so?
Everyone in the Xie family knew that Young Master Xie was exceptionally protective of his loved ones.
As the couple strolled around, Yun Bixue talked about her past to Xie Limo. She only chose to discuss her pleasant memories; she did not want Xie Limo to feel depressed over her bitter experiences.
"Limo, Old Lady Shen—who is also my grandma—hasn't been looking for me recently. Did the two of you come to an agreement?" It had been a long time, and she was growing suspicious. This was not her grandmother's usual style.
Thinking about that old lady, Xie Limo pursed his thin lips and replied plainly, "My dear, you don't need to worry about irrelevant people." That Old Lady Shen wasn't even Yun Bixue's blood-related grandmother, and so he would show no mercy in his actions. If Old Lady Shen still wished to be a tyrant in the Yun family, she needed to step up her game.
His wife may care about family ties, but he did not. The only person he cared about was his wife. The Yun family did not signify much to him.
Old Master Yun was the only exception. Old Master Yun spoiled his granddaughter, and for the sake of his wife, Xie Limo naturally regarded him as his own grandfather.
He had made arrangements for Old Master Yun's discharge from the hospital a long time ago. There were people guarding over him, so he didn't need to suffer when he returned to the Yun family home. Old Lady Shen wouldn't be able to do anything even if she wanted to.
Hearing Xie Limo's words, Yun Bixue knew that he must have done a lot for her.
After more than an hour, the couple returned home. Xie Limo looked at his cell phone on the table; his mother had called. He glanced at Yun Bixue before picking up the phone to return the call.
"It's already so late, why didn't you pick up the phone? I'm not interrupting you, right?" As his mother, she had been elated when she learned that her son had a wife. She had also been eagerly anticipating the day she could meet her daughter-in-law.
The corners of Xie Limo's lips curved up into a rare warm smile. "What do you think, Mother?"
"It would be my fault if it was. I should have picked a proper time to call you. I want to see my daughter-in-law. There's no need for you to hide anything, I won't bite."
Xie Limo looked up at his dainty wife who was busying away. A tinge of warmth lit up in his alluring eyes, and he said softly, "Mother, I'm afraid that she might not be used to it yet."
The woman on the other end of the phone laughed gently, "You're just like your father. It's only been a short while, but you're already so protective of your wife. But I truly am eager to see her, and the two of you should hurry up and give birth to a son."
At the mention of this, Xie Limo's brows twitched, as if he was preoccupied in some thoughts. He replied plainly, "No hurry."
"That's true. But since you've already collected your wedding certificate, you need to hold a wedding too. Our Xie family cannot do her wrong."
"Mother, rest assured, that will be taken care of."
"Have you two discussed when to hold the wedding? Luckily, I'm free to take charge of the planning with your father. As for that group of elders, you don't need to worry!" With the mention of those elders, the woman's tone grew solemn.
"Yes, I'll be sure to discuss with her on what kind of wedding ceremony she prefers." Xie Limo would naturally think of his wife and consider her feelings first. He didn't understand the expectations of women, but he wanted to provide the best for her.
"Wait for me to reach Ning An City, and we can discuss it together." With that, the woman started explaining her plans excitedly.
Xie Limo rubbed his brows with resignation. His mother indeed acted fast—she had even arranged a flight on her private airplane. It was impossible for her not to come.
