65 Her Ex-Husband Must Have Been Killed This Way

    Gu Nianshen's face became gloomier as he gritted his teeth and decisively blocked the number.

    How could a five-year-old kid be this mature? He must have been instructed by a female neighbour to lure Gu Nianshen into her trap. Such women brought tremendous misfortune to men around them. In Gu Nianshen's mind, her ex-husband must have been killed this way.

    ***

    Lin Yiqian waited for Gu Nianshen to go downstairs before she went into the dressing room to get changed. The black dress she had chosen had a round collar and was long enough to cover her knees. With a simple ponytail and no make-up on her face at all, Lin Yiqian gave off a very strict aura.

    During breakfast, Gu Nianshen sat across her as he ate in silence. He was first to finish as he got up to leave without saying a single word.

    Thereafter, Lin Yiqian slowly finished her meal as she walked out of the dining area and headed to the main door.

    "Mrs. Gu, are you heading out?" The housekeeper asked with a smile.

    "Yeah."

    "Here are the keys for all of the unused cars in the garage. You can choose whichever one you like."

    The housekeeper then opened a drawer which contained over a dozen car keys. In a single glance, Lin Yiqian could see that they were all brands of luxury cars.

    Once her office was done, she would have to leave the house every day. It was definitely much more convenient to own a car.

    If the Gu family was giving her a car, she would not need to buy one on her own. After all, she was supposed to be the 'poor' Lin Yiqian. If she bought an expensive car with her money, people around her would feel suspicious. However, if she bought a cheap car, the paparazzi would make a big deal out of it.

    As Lin Yiqian took such factors into consideration, she decided to accept the offer. In the end, she chose to drive a Mercedes-Benz which would not be too over-the-top.

    When she got into the garage, she pressed a button on the car key as an E-grade Mercedes-Benz, worth 500,000 dollars, lit up. She was surprised to find that the Gu family owned such an 'affordable' car.

    Lin Yiqian did not mind it at all. In fact, she preferred the low profile vehicle as it would not draw too much attention to herself.

    The graveyard in South City was very close to their home. When Lin Yiqian arrived, she parked the car in front of the garden. With a bouquet of flowers in her hands, she slowly walked uphill.

    Once she arrived in front of her mother's tombstone, Lin Yiqian swept away the layer of dust on it as she bent down to place the flowers in front of it.

    "Mother, I'm home."

    As she looked at the picture on the tombstone, she did not feel as emotional as she had initially expected.

    She continued to stare at her mother's picture for a very long time. Suddenly, she came back to her senses when a strong gust of wind blew at her face.

    "I still can't forgive them. I will never forgive them," she said.

    She had spoken each word with determination.

    Then, she started walking down the slope of the hill to her car.

    When she arrived at her previous house, Lin Yiqian stayed in the car as she looked at it.

    Suddenly, the gate opened.

    "Yiqian!" The person who opened the gate exclaimed excitedly when she saw Lin Yiqian in the car.

    "Tianwan, Yiqian is back," Jiang Yuexiang shouted as she turned around to face the courtyard.

    Tianwan...

    Lin Yiqian smirked. She remembered how Jiang Yuexiang used to address him with affection. Lin Yiqian could not believe that she had never suspected anything.

    After Jiang Yuexiang's loud voice was heard, several people came out of the house. Lin Yiqian finally got out of the car and walked toward the courtyard.

    Lin Yiqian did not acknowledge any of the people who had come out of the house. After entering the courtyard, she immediately turned to face Lin Tianwan. "I'm here to discuss with you about the company."
