89 Huh, Men!

    That was a blatantly false statement. Their grandmother had clearly promised Lin Yiqian that the house was hers. Lin Yuqing had forcefully taken it away from her.

    Lin Yiqian decided that she would let Gu Nianshen deal with such a shameless person. Meanwhile, she silently rolled her eyes at Lin Yuqing.

    However...

    When Gu Nianshen replied Lin Yuqing, he sounded somewhat more pleasant than usual. "In that case, I'm not going to ask for a discount. In fact, I will pay more as a gift added to your dowry."

    He was not asking for a discount and was even giving them extra as a gift.

    Lin Yiqian raised eyes to look at Gu Nianshen confusedly. He seemed as jolly as he had sounded.

    When Lin Yuqing heard that Gu Nianshen was forfeiting the discount on her behalf, and was going to pay an even higher amount, she immediately became overjoyed. "Thank you, brother-in-law. You are so nice to me."

    She knew it. Gu Nianshen could not have forgotten about her.

    After thanking Gu Nianshen, she immediately glanced at Lin Yiqian victoriously.

    Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian was still waiting for Gu Nianshen to suddenly change his tone of voice with a nasty comeback.

    However, his smile became even wider. "You are most welcome."

    'Huh, men!' Lin Yiqian thought to herself as she snorted.

    She then looked at Lin Yuqing. Earlier, Lin Yuqing was still refusing to acknowledge Lin Yiqian as her cousin. Now, she was addressing Gu Nianshen as her brother-in-law.

    'Huh, women!' Lin Yiqian thought.

    After Gu Nianshen had replied to Lin Yuqing, he continued to speak to Lin Tianxi and Lin Tianwan before anyone could say a word. "It's decided then. Regardless of how much the house costs, I will pay an extra 100 bucks as a gift for Lin Yuqing's dowry."

    Gu Nianshen had said that seriously.

    Chuckles.

    Lin Yiqian was trying very hard not to laugh out loud. Was he being serious?

    The smile on Lin Yuqing's face gradually faded away as she lifted her head to look at Gu Nianshen.

    "Brother-in-law, you must be kidding."

    A gift of a hundred bucks was akin to an insult.

    Lin Tianxi could not stand this anymore. As he did not dare offend Gu Nianshen, he instead started scolding Lin Yuqing. "Lin Yuqing, get over here!"

    As he gave the order, he reached out for Lin Yuqing's arm and tugged her over to stand next to him.

    While turning around, he threw a glance at Lin Tianwan.

    Lin Tianwan caught the hint and immediately looked at Gu Nianshen. "Nianshen, why do you suddenly want to buy our old house?"

    Gu Nianshen chuckled. "Our uncle had said earlier that the house brings good fortune. I'm a businessman after all."

    Lin Tianwan nodded with a smile. "I see. The house was left behind by Yiqian's grandmother. She still has an aunt and a second uncle. We would need to discuss with each other on whether the house can be sold."

    As he finished his sentence, Lin Tianwan turned away as he dared not look at Gu Nianshen in the eye.

    Although he wanted to appease Gu Nianshen, losing the only thing that he could bargain with Lin Yiqian was too much of a cost.

    Meanwhile, Gu Nianshen did not appear too forceful. Instead, he nodded his head politely. "Do what you have to. However, I am sure that they would both agree with you, Mr. Lin."

    Lin Yiqian was still surprised by how polite Gu Nianshen sounded as she turned to look at his face. As she did so, she noticed that Gu Nianshen smiled and winked at Lin Tianwan.

    His shrewdness was nearly unbelievable. Lin Yiqian had the urge to bite him right then.

    It seemed that Gu Nianshen would definitely get what he wanted.

    When Lin Tianwan saw Gu Nianshen's gestures, the smile on his face slowly faded away. "Yeah... You're right."

    Gu Nianshen smiled cheerfully as he looked around at everyone. "If there's nothing else, we'll be taking our leave."
