93 Did You Know That I Am Allergic to Alcohol?

    Lin Yiqian must have gotten used to being neglected. Therefore, she found this romantic even though it was a simple act of eating lunch with Gu Nianshen at a run-down stall that sold dumplings.

    This was their first time going on a lunch date on their own.

    Lin Yiqian seemed to be in a great mood as she rested her chin on her palms as she looked at Gu Nianshen.

    She was even gently tapping her face with her fingers.

    All of a sudden, she saw a huge pot near the cashier. There seemed to be a pulp of sorts in the pot that looked like red bean paste.

    "What's that?" She asked the owner of the stall.

    "It's bean paste. My wife had recently learned how to make it. It tastes amazing. I'll let you try a bowl of it for free," he said as he looked over at the pot.

    "Xiao Mei, please bring Yiqian a bowl of bean paste," he called out to his wife.

    Not long after, Lin Yiqian was presented with a hot bowl of bean paste that smelled very appetizing.

    However, there was a strange scent which she could not quite put her finger on. As it did not affect her appetite, she immediately brought a spoonful of the bean paste to her mouth. Suddenly, she lifted her head to look at Gu Nianshen. "Would you like to try some?"

    Gu Nianshen glanced at the black stuff in her spoon. Clearly, his facial expression was conveying that he had no interest in eating it at all.

    Lin Yiqian shrugged as she proceeded to eat the bean paste on her own. To her surprise, the red bean paste melted as soon as it entered her mouth.

    "It's really good." She licked her lips.

    Soon, she was almost done with eating the entire bowl of bean paste.

    As she prepared to eat the last few spoonfuls of bean paste, Gu Nianshen suddenly reached his hand out to take the bowl and the spoon away from Lin Yiqian.

    Before she could react, Gu Nianshen asked, frantically, "Is there alcohol in this stuff?"

    When Lin Yiqian heard him, she subconsciously looked down at her own arms. There were red bumps all over her arms. Although it was not very visible, her allergic reaction was indeed kicking in.


    Lin Yiqian raised her head to look at Gu Nianshen in confusion. Meanwhile, Gu Nianshen was staring at the owner of the stall furiously.

    He had already stood up.

    Although the owner did not know what had happened, he was still frightened by Gu Nianshen's glare. "There is some fermented content in the paste... It's called fermented bean paste."

    "Why didn't you say so earlier? Why didn't you tell us that it was fermented?" Gu Nianshen exclaimed angrily as he slammed the bowl on the table. Even Lin Yiqian was taken aback by the loud sound, let alone the owner and his wife.

    "Gu Nianshen!" Lin Yiqian shouted.

    She was surprised and confused at the same time. There was a flurry of emotions in her heart.

    When Gu Nianshen heard her loud voice, he suddenly realized he had overreacted.

    After blinking several times, he turned around to look at Lin Yiqian.

    "I..." He was unsure of what to say.

    At the same time, Lin Yiqian spoke. "You... Did you know that I was allergic to alcohol?"

    Lin Yiqian was tempted to place her hands over her chest to calm herself down.

    "Umm... I remember that you had a similar allergic reaction when Song Changlin gave you those alcoholic candies," Gu Nianshen murmured.

    Lin Yiqian had indeed experienced an allergic reaction when Song Changlin gave her alcoholic candies in the past. That had happened once after school when Song Changlin had given her chocolates filled with alcohol. At the time, Lin Yiqian had probably eaten one too many.

    In the end, Song Changlin had to rush her to the hospital.
