80 Be More Considerate When You Speak

    Could he have drunk so much that he had forgotten everything that had happened last night?

    "I understand."

    Gu Nianshen got into a state of panic after hearing what Aunt Zhou had said.

    He immediately ran downstairs.

    As he stopped in front of the door and gazed at the empty porch, Gu Nianshen realized that he did not have a clear direction at all.

    What would he do or say once he saw Lin Yiqian?

    He slowly walked into the house.

    ***

    "Mr. Gu, is there something wrong?"

    This was the fifth time Gu Nianshen had called. The first four times was him asking about unimportant matters before hanging up.

    Aunt Zhou finally could not take it anymore as she popped the question.

    "Nothing's wrong." Gu Nianshen cleared his throat. "Is dinner ready?"

    "I've not started cooking yet. Will you come home early for dinner today?"

    Aunt Zhou sounded jolly as she thought Gu Nianshen might be coming home early.

    Gu Nianshen did not answer her question. Instead, he pursed his lips for a moment before speaking. "Has Lin Yiqian not come home yet?"

    He did not sound happy.

    "No, she hasn't," Aunt Zhou replied.

    Gu Nianshen glanced at his watch. It was almost five o'clock in the afternoon.

    It had been nearly ten hours.

    "I understand," Gu Nianshen replied nonchalantly as he hung up.

    As if remembering something, Gu Nianshen picked up the phone and tapped into Li Nanmu's Wechat.

    "I have decided to give Qi Wuyue the nightclub." He wrote.

    After Gu Nianshen's message was sent, he immediately got a call from Li Nanmu.

    Although Gu Nianshen canceled the call, Li Nanmu kept calling. He finally picked up the call. "Li Nanmu, you'd better not contact me for some time."

    "Why's that?" Li Nanmu sounded confused.

    He needed a reason for the sudden punishment.

    "Next time, be more considerate when you speak. Practice being more observant from Qi Wuyue," Gu Nianshen shouted into the phone before hanging up after that.

    Having tossed the phone away, he ignored all incoming calls.

    Despite the huge amount of work that needed to be done, Gu Nianshen could not bring himself to focus on the tasks at hand. Scratching his head, he decided he would shut down the computer.

    ***

    Gu Nianshen's subconscious had brought him to this place.

    As he sat in the car, he looked at the familiar house and the number on the sign in front of it.

    Although he was not feeling particularly courageous, Gu Nianshen mentally forced himself to get out of the car and to ring the doorbell.

    "That looks like Nianshen's car."

    All of a sudden, a familiar voice came from behind Gu Nianshen's car. Gu Nianshen immediately looked away from the house. Through the car's rearview mirror, he could see Lin Tianwan and Jiang Yuexiang approaching his car.

    "It really is you, Gu Nianshen. Why are you here?" Lin Tianwan was both surprised and overjoyed.

    Gu Nianshen's hands were still placed on the steering wheel as he smiled at Lin Tianwan. "Do you not welcome me?"

    "Of course that's not what I meant." Lin Tianwan shook his head with a panic-stricken face.

    "Come on in and have a seat." Lin Tianwan pointed at his house.

    Gu Nianshen did not reject Lin Tianwan's offer as he got out of the car.

    As he followed behind Lin Tianwan, he felt increasingly confident.

    This neighborhood was built nearly sixteen years ago. Although the houses all seemed expensive and grand, most of them were surrounded by greeneries of all sorts.

    Gu Nianshen seemed to be enjoying the view as he walked along the pathway.
