529 Why Is There A Bruise On Your Arm?

    In all five years Lin Yiqian had looked after Xiaoyu, he had never made her a wallet. However, Xiaoyu had put in so much effort after having only met his biological father for such a short period of time.

    "Mommy has a lot of purses in the cabinet. Daddy doesn't have any at all. I feel bad for Daddy." Xiaoyu pouted.

    Lin Yiqian was speechless.

    Gu Nianshen, the huge jerk, must have rescued the galaxy in his past life to earn himself such a thoughtful son.

    'Nevermind! Why should I be jealous of a jerk?' Lin Yiqian consoled herself before hurrying to get changed in the closet.

    When she walked out, she wore a white T-shirt and a pair of short, blue jeans. Not only did she wash off all the fake tattoos on her body, but she had also washed her hair.

    Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian's phone had not stopped ringing. The calls were all from Gu Nianshen.

    Once she was done preparing everything, she finally picked up his call as she walked.

    "Where are you?"

    Just as Lin Yiqian had thought, Gu Nianshen became worried after discovering that she was not in the office.

    "I took Xiaoyu out to get something done. Why don't you head on over to the restaurant and wait for me there?" Lin Yiqian replied calmly.

    "I'll wait for you here. In the meantime, I can also check if your mess of a company has turned into an even bigger mess."

    Lin Yiqian remained silent.

    Why must he speak so harshly?

    Annoyed, Lin Yiqian hung up and walked Xiaoyu out of the house with her cap lowered.

    Once they entered the lift, Lin Xiaoyu suddenly grabbed Lin Yiqian's hand and asked nervously, "Mommy, what happened to your arm?"

    He pointed at Lin Yiqian's elbow with his other hand.

    When Lin Yiqian looked down, she noticed that there was an obvious bruise on her elbow. Right then, she recalled that she had knocked her elbow against the wall when she was trying to fight Sergei off.

    "I accidentally bumped into something," Lin Yiqian replied before touching her bruised elbow.

    'Ouch! It hurts!

    'What am I going to do? I have to attend Suka's red carpet event in a few days. I must take some medicine to make this bruise go away as soon as possible.'

    ***

    Gu Nianshen was now sitting on Lin Yiqian's chair at her desk. After his call with Lin Yiqian ended, he put his phone down and looked at the neatly piled documents on her desk. He detested them so much that he thought of setting them ablaze.

    These were the rubbish that caused his wife to struggle so much every day.

    Casually, he picked up one of the documents and flipped through it.

    It was a document for a competitive bid. When he saw the share of revenue the Lin family's company was offering to the shopping mall, he nearly tore the document apart.

    How would the idiot make any money at all if her company offered such a large share of revenue to the shopping mall?

    Gu Nianshen picked up a pen as he flipped to the final page of the document. He wrote two words on the spot where Lin Yiqian was required to sign. "Get lost."

    After putting this document away, he picked up one after another. If he was pleased with the stipulated terms in the documents, he would put the documents back in their original place. However, he would write the same two words on those that he was not pleased with.

    In the end, there was only a single piece of blank paper left.

    After checking that both sides were blank, he began drawing aimlessly on the paper.

    Suddenly, his phone began to ring. Thinking that Lin Yiqian would be the only person to call him at such an hour, coupled with the fact that he was engrossed in drawing the silhouettes of two humans on the paper, Gu Nianshen did not check who the caller was before picking the call up.

    "Idiot, why aren't you here yet?"

    "Gu Nianshen, who do you think you are speaking to?"

    When Gu Nianshen heard Song Changwen's voice on the call, he was taken by surprise. His hand that was still holding onto a pen trembled a little.

    He hurriedly put the pen down as he held the phone up to his ear. "Chief Song, why are you calling me this late?"

    "Are you guys home yet? I want to spend some time with Xiaoyu later."

    "We aren't at home. You don't have to come over."

    "I called to check with Aunt Zhou earlier. She told me that you have asked the kitchen staff to go on vacation. Are you and Lin Yiqian eating out tonight?"
