82 Of Course You Must Give In

    Lin Tianwan continued to speak. "Then, her grades continued to improve. At one point, she even became one of the best three students in her class."

    "Her mother and I had plans for her to study overseas. However, she managed to get herself accepted into a top university on her own."

    Gu Nianshen suddenly turned around as he frowned at Lin Tianwan, appearing almost as if he was troubled by something Lin Tianwan had said.

    "Have I said too much?" Lin Tianwan chuckled.

    Without replying to him, Gu Nianshen slow shifted his gaze away from Lin Tianwan.

    "I'm leaving," Gu Nianshen said after taking a few steps towards the door.

    "Why don't you stay here for lunch?"

    "No, thank you." Gu Nianshen hastened his footsteps as he replied.


    After Lin Yiqian had returned home, she stared at the share transfer agreement for nearly an hour.

    The words 'Lin Tianwan' was written across the front page, which was annoying and ironic to her.

    Thump. Thump.

    Lin Yiqian's thoughts were interrupted by the knocking sound at the door. Her immediate reaction was to put the agreement away as she chucked it into a file.

    As she responded to the knock verbally, she stood up and walked over to the door.

    It was Aunt Zhou.

    "Yiqian, Nianshen is back. Come down for dinner."

    "I'm not eating. I just had fruits."

    In order to stay fit, she had been eating fruits for dinner for years.

    When Aunt Zhou heard that Lin Yiqian was not going to eat, she berated her. "Why aren't you eating every night? Your body will get weaker if this goes on."

    "Don't worry. I'm used to it." Lin Yiqian shook her head.

    Having failed in her attempt to convince Yiqian to have dinner, Aunt Zhou gave up. "If you feel hungry later, you can get someone to make you dinner in the kitchen," she said as she walked away.

    Gu Nianshen was the only person in the dining hall. As he sat alone at the large dining table, Aunt Zhou felt somewhat sorry for him.

    "Yiqian said she won't be eating," Aunt Zhou said.

    She wondered when the couple would start treating each other better.

    When Gu Nianshen heard that Lin Yiqian was not coming down for dinner, he seemed disappointed.


    Without saying another word, he picked up his chopsticks and began to eat.

    After taking a few bites of the food served, he wiped his mouth with a napkin and stood up.

    "These are all your favorite dishes. Why have you eaten so little?" Aunt Zhou asked hastily.

    "I haven't got much of an appetite," he replied.

    As Gu Nianshen rushed upstairs to his room, he noticed that Lin Yiqian was no longer in the bedroom.

    He stood in the center of the hall for a moment before pacing around and finally returning to the door. As he pulled his door open, he leaned on the doorframe and peeked out at Lin Yiqian's room.


    'Oh yeah!' As if recalling something, Gu Nianshen's eyes lit up. He hurriedly picked up his phone and turned on the search engine.

    "What should I do if I have had a misunderstanding with my wife?" He typed furiously.

    This was the most frequented blog for discussions related to relationships. As soon as Gu Nianshen wrote his post, an internet user immediately responded to his post.

    'Battle Chicken: In a relationship between two people, the most important thing is trust. Women are generally more sensitive and are emotionally weaker.'

    When Gu Nianshen saw this reply, he frowned skeptically. Was Lin Yiqian emotionally weak?

    She seemed to be even stronger than most men.

    Another internet user replied. 'You must, of course, give in. You need to kneel before her and apologize.'

    After reading the reply, Gu Nianshen nearly typed the words 'get lost' as his reply.

    However, he decided to ignore the particular reply as he read the next one. 'Make sure you make it up to her. Get her a gift or do something which will make her feel touched. If something similar happens again, you must remember to trust her. Don't let this happen more than once or twice. Otherwise, she might start withdrawing away from you emotionally.'
