90 He Must Have Been Crazy to Come for Her

    Gu Nianshen lowered his gaze to look at Lin Yiqian. "Your family is very poor now. You'd better not come here too often so that they don't have to spend so much on food."

    As he spoke, he dragged Lin Yiqian along and headed for the door.

    Lin Yiqian was speechless.

    She wished someone would hand her a sword so that she could cut Gu Nianshen into pieces.

    ***

    When they arrived at the car, Gu Nianshen finally lifted his arm from Lin Yiqian's shoulders.

    All of a sudden, Lin Yiqian felt an emptiness in her heart. Disappointment appeared in her eyes for a brief moment. However, she quickly suppressed her feelings.

    "Why have you come?" She raised her eyes to meet Gu Nianshen as she smiled.

    "It does not matter why I've come. You need to remember your status as Mrs. Gu. Our Gu family's reputation is very important," Gu Nianshen replied coolly.

    "I'll keep that in mind," Lin Yiqian replied calmy, as usual.

    Noticing how calm Lin Yiqian looked, Gu Nianshen could relate to why Gu Nianjia was always driven to the point of madness by her.

    Lin Yiqian's nonchalant reaction truly made him feel annoyed as it seemed like she did not care at all.

    He would have rather received a reply such as "The Gu family's reputation has nothing to do with me" or "I don't care about your family's reputation". That was still better than nothing.

    That was because he would have at least been able to continue the conversation, even if it meant mindless banter.

    However, she would always bring the conversation to an end.

    Gu Nianshen must have been crazy to come for her.

    "I'm glad you remember," Gu Nianshen replied promptly as he walked around to the passenger side and got into the car.

    "Qi Shaodong had sent me here earlier. He has gone away to get some work done. Fetch me to the office," he said.

    It was a command.

    "Alright." Lin Yiqian nodded.

    Since she was standing on the driver's side, she opened the door and got into the car.

    After getting into the car, she thought for a moment before deciding to thank Gu Nianshen. "I just wanted to say thank you."

    "The house is very important to me. If possible..."

    "I mean, if I have enough money, I hope you can sell it to me." She corrected herself before finishing her sentence.

    Without even waiting for a reply, she immediately added, "If it's not possible, just pretend that I never said anything."

    After all these years, the one thing that Lin Yiqian still feared the most was being rejected by Gu Nianshen.

    She was afraid of his rejection in every aspect.

    Then, she hurriedly turned on the engine and started driving.

    To her relief, Gu Nianshen did not reply to her. Perhaps not getting an answer was better than being rejected.

    The road to Mega was in the opposite direction of returning home. As they drove away from the neighborhood, Lin Yiqian took a turn to the right. This was the direction of their primary school.

    At this point in time, the students were all in class and therefore there was complete silence in front of the school's gate. Various stalls were getting ready for the afternoon crowd.

    As they arrived in front of a traffic light, Lin Yiqian came to a halt as it turned red. She glanced casually at the row of food stalls by the road.

    'Ming Ji's Deli'.

    She was taken by surprise when she saw the familiar sign at the end of the road.

    In the morning, she had only drunk a glass of milk. Right then, she immediately felt the hunger kicking in. The only reason she had not eaten the two boxes of dumplings from Changlin the night before was because of her diet.

    However, she was fine with eating more during the day.

    As she thought to herself, Lin Yiqian immediately turned on the turn signal as she slowly maneuvered the car to the side of the road and eventually came to a stop.

    "What are you doing?" Gu Nianshen looked at her confusedly.
