536 People Claimed That She Relied On Her Husband

    "What are you worried about then?" Lin Yiqian leaned back and crossed her arms in front of her chest. "Are you worried that I might cheat on you while I'm away for business?" She raised her brows.

    Gu Nianshen ignored her while he picked up his phone. "I'll speak to Manager Ma and the others. They can go on your behalf."

    At first, Lin Yiqian thought Gu Nianshen would not ask her about where she was going away for business. She assumed that she only needed to inform him about it.

    After all, that was what happened last time when she participated in Life's event in the capital. She did not expect Gu Nianshen to react negatively this time.

    Although she was slightly surprised, there was a larger part of her which felt happy.

    Even if it meant he distrusted her, at least he did not treat her like a stranger and ignore her completely.

    However, she needed to be away for those few days. "Gu Nianshen, are you attempting to restrict my freedom?" Lin Yiqian needed to use a hard-line approach.

    Lin Yiqian frowned while she looked at Gu Nianshen suspiciously.

    "Who are you taking with you?" To her surprise, Gu Nianshen immediately yielded.

    Seeing that he had changed his mind, Lin Yiqian relaxed her tone of voice. "I'll just bring my secretary along. I'm only going for two to three days. Three days would be the maximum number of days. Besides, I'm only going to be in Beijing."

    Why did Lin Yiqian feel like she was trying to convince her mother to let her go on a faraway trip?

    When she looked at Gu Nianshen again, there was a look of unwillingness on his handsome face.

    "Make sure Manager Gao is with you at all times."

    Although Gu Nianshen agreed, he was still worried.

    While speaking, Gu Nianshen took his phone out to give Manager Gao a call.

    Since Manager Gao was Gu Nianshen's employee, Lin Yiqian could not let him follow her around. How would she be able to get away?

    Lin Yiqian began to panic. "I've been able to look after myself for five years while I stayed abroad. Why wouldn't I be able to do so on a business trip within the country?"

    Right after she finished speaking, Lin Yiqian realized she had let the words slip out unintentionally.

    She immediately stopped herself from speaking further.

    Meanwhile, Gu Nianshen also stopped trying to call Manager Gao as he looked up at Lin Yiqian. "Were you alone?" He raised his brows.

    Lin Yiqian hurriedly changed the topic. "Gu Nianshen, I'm telling you, I have to personally oversee the case in Beijing. I want to prove my own capability. Please don't interfere with my work in the future. Obviously, I am a very capable person and I can accomplish things on my own. However, people still claim that I rely on my husband to be successful."

    When Gu Nianshen heard her saying the word 'husband', he could not help but feel joy in her heart.

    Most importantly, Lin Yiqian had suddenly mentioned that she had spent the past five years abroad on her own.

    After Gu Nianshen gave up on calling Manager Gao, he locked his phone before turning to look at Lin Yiqian. "Call me every day when you're away."

    Although it was a seemingly normal reminder, it felt like a romantic phrase to Lin Yiqian.

    It was far too romantic for Lin Yiqian to handle. She lowered her head to smile in secret as she bit her bottom lip. "Are you very worried about me?" She then looked up at Gu Nianshen.

    "Obviously!" Gu Nianshen rolled his eyes at Lin Yiqian before looking down.

    He began to smile in a shy yet joyful manner.


    While Gu Nianshen's car moved on the driveway, Lin Yiqian's car followed right behind.

    Gu Nianshen looked at Lin Yiqian's car through the rearview mirror. Suddenly, it seemed as if he had suddenly thought of something. "Didn't I ask you guys to investigate Song Changlin's visit to America? Why didn't you update me about it at all?"

    Up to this point, Gu Nianshen still did not know what Lin Yiqian had used the two hundred million dollars she asked from him for.

    Of course, it was unlikely that she had given them to Song Changlin.

    Gu Nianshen was aware that Song Changlin was far more ambitious than he might have imagined.

    "We only managed to find out that, on the day Chief Song arrived in America, he was with... With..."
