57 He Is My Husband

    Gu Nianshen was not only making a girl who cared a lot about her appearances shave her head. He was even forcing her to share a photo of the aftermath in their classmates' group chat.

    He was merciless.

    Lin Yiqian snuck a glance at Gu Nianshen. There was an expression of awe on her face as she did so. Sensing her gaze, Gu Nianshen turned toward her as their eyes met each other.

    The two hesitated for a split second before they both turned away from each other's faces simultaneously.

    However, Gu Nianshen was still patiently brushing her hair with his hands. Although Lin Yiqian could neither see his face nor tell what his facial expression was, she could sense that he was being very gentle with her hair and that he was trying not to touch her scalp. Despite that, he would still occassionally touch her scalp by accident.

    Each time that happened, she would flinch as if she had been shocked by electricity.

    "I'm not going to do it."

    Qian Jiaojiao and Zhou Hongling were both unwilling to accept Gu Nianshen's instruction. They subconsciously raised their hands to their heads.

    "Mr. Qian will personally bring you to the barber when you get home," Gu Nianshen replied.

    He was speaking so calmly that one could barely tell that he had any emotions at all. Qian Jiaojiao was so terrified by what he said that her legs began to tremble as hopelessness appeared on her face.

    Meanwhile, Zhou Hongling was paying attention to how Gu Nianshen carefully tended to Lin Yiqian's hair.

    He would frown each time he noticed a strand of stray hair on her head.

    Lin Yiqian, on the other hand, had also stopped acting proud as she had always done in the past. Instead of her usual enviable coolness, she now seemed like a fragile lady next to Gu Nianshen's tall and well-built body.

    In fact, she was like a tamed cat which would now let its master pet it as he wished.

    This was a huge contrast to how Zhou Hongling and Qian Jiaojiao had described Lin Yiqian as being abandoned by Gu Nianshen. They had insulted her as being an unloved wife which was the exact opposite of what Gu Nianshen was portraying now.

    Zhou Hongling was not going to let Lin Yiqian have her moment. She stared at Gu Nianshen with a furious expression. "Gu Nianshen, haven't you always hated Lin Yiqian?"

    She did not believe that Gu Nianshen would fall for a woman who had already been with another man for the last five years.

    Zhou Hongling's question sounded rang some bells in Lin Yiqian's mind. Lin Yiqian subconsciously took a step backward as she raised her head to look at Gu Nianshen, with an equally confused expression as Zhou Hongling's.

    Zhou Hongling was right. Had he not always hated Lin Yiqian? Why was he doing this then?

    Gu Nianshen's hand was now dangling mid-air as Lin Yiqian had backed away. For a brief moment, he did not know how to react.

    As he gradually lowered his hand, he naturally let it slip into the pocket on his jeans. Then, he turned around to face Zhou Hongling and Qianjiaojiao with slightly furrowed eyebrows. There was no way of telling what he was feeling right then.

    "He is my husband. How would you know if he hated me?"

    Lin Yiqian had no idea what had given her the courage to say such things.

    As soon as she finished her sentence, she stood still. Gu Nianshen turned around to look at her with an even deeper frown.

    Since she had already spoken those words, she would have to back them up. Lin Yiqian thought for a while before she stepped forward and wrapped her arms around Gu Nianshen's shoulders in an endearing manner. "Haven't you seen the news? He bought me forty-five purses and even brought me to the capital for a show. Why would he do that if he did not like me?"

    Thereafter, she immediately pinched hard on Gu Nianshen's shoulders and raised her head to give him a signal through a brief moment of eye contact.

    'Please don't embarrass me. You can do whatever you want later.'

    Was Lin Yiqian flirting with him?

    Gu Nianshen seemed very much confused, as shown by the deep frown on his face.
