53 Will You Continue to Help Me?

    When she walked out of the dressing room, Gu Nianshen was already on the couch, mindlessly flipping through a magazine. He had already taken a shower and was dressed in the pajamas he took from the dressing room earlier.

    Had the sound not come from their room?

    Lin Yiqian pondered for a moment. In the end, she decided there was no need to find out where the loud noise was from. She then looked at Gu Nianshen again.

    Was he not planning on leaving?

    "Are you going to sleep here tonight?" Lin Yiqian asked.

    Gu Nianshen lifted his head slowly as his cold stare met Lin Yiqian's eyes. "Lin Yiqian, this is... my room."

    He stopped himself from saying 'our room'.

    As he spoke, he put the magazine away and stood up. Then, he put his hands into the pockets of his pajamas as he began walking into the bedroom.

    He was going to sleep.

    Lin Yiqian's script was still in the room. Without thinking of anything else, she immediately followed Gu Nianshen into the bedroom.

    She decisively walked to the desk to pick up her script and her laptop. "I still want to read the novel for a while longer. I'll be outside."

    Lin Yiqian would need to get her work studio done as soon as possible. Otherwise, she would not be able to work at home at all. There was very little privacy.

    As she continued to walk away with these thoughts, a cool man's voice suddenly interrupted her. "Lin Yiqian."

    "Ah?" She stopped walking.

    "When are you going to talk to me about your family's matter?"

    His stare was as cold as his voice. Lin Yiqian could not feel any sense of warmth from him.

    As if needles had pierced her heart, Lin Yiqian could feel tears welling up in her eyes from the pain.

    She tried to control herself for fear of revealing her emotions when she spoke.

    "Didn't you marry me so that Mega's investment could rescue your family?" Gu Nianshen continued. There was a hint of smugness in his tone.

    Lin Yiqian inhaled deeply. "I thought it's been made very clear in the contract. There's no need to discuss further."

    She had nearly forgotten how their marriage had come about.

    It was all because of his grandfather's will. Although Gu Nianshen was the first heir, he was not the only heir. If Gu Nianshen wanted to take over Mega, he would have to marry Lin Yiqian. Otherwise, anyone who was willing to marry Lin Yiqian would become the rightful heir.

    Gu Nianshen had married her only because of the Gu family's inheritance and the opportunity to become Mega's CEO.

    Lin Yiqian still could not understand why Grandfather Gu had left such a will before he passed away. In her mind, the old man was very similar to Gu Nianshen in that they both liked women who were smart but were very subtle about it.

    "If you spent a little time to care for your family, you would know that the 300 million won't be enough to solve your family's problem," Gu Nianshen continued.

    Of course, Lin Yiqian did know about her family's condition.

    However, what did her family's bankruptcy have to do with her?

    How would Gu Nianshen understand her perspective anyway?

    He must think that she was a horrible person.

    Lin Yiqian smiled as she nodded at Gu Nianshen. "I'll return home to find out tomorrow."

    She was prepared to leave the room. However, as though she had recalled something, Lin Yiqian turned around to face Gu Nianshen. "If more than 300 million is required, will you continue to help me?"

    Even Lin Yiqian thought that it was a ridiculous question.

    If not for the 300 million written on the will, Gu Nianshen probably would not even spend a single dime on her.
