103 You Dont Look Good with Long Hair, Cut It off

    As Lin Yiqian heard this, she immediately responded before Gu Nianshen could say anything. "I will do my best not to disappoint you, Mother."

    She sounded calm yet confident as a smile began to form on her face.

    Even Song Changwen felt somewhat curious about her source of confidence.

    "If you can't do it, terminate the Lin family's business immediately. This is not negotiable," Song Changwen said as she peered at Lin Yiqian.

    "Chief Song, does that mean if she can successfully clear the stocks, you will stop interfering with my decisions?" Gu Nianshen immediately asked after Song Changwen finished her sentence.

    He looked at her in a way that hinted as if Song Changwen had fallen for his trap.

    It made Song Changwen feel extremely uncomfortable. "We can talk after she's done it. Remember, she can't get any help from you." Song Changwen snorted.

    After Song Changwen had finished her sentence, she walked out of the room.

    Qian Hui and the others began following after her. However, Gu Nianshen's uncle seemed not to be in a hurry as he stopped next to Lin Yiqian on his way out. "Young girl, your family has already fallen from glory. Stop struggling so much."

    As soon as Gu Nianshen's uncle left, the smile of Lin Yiqian's face gradually faded away. Her gaze seemed cold and distant.

    Without looking at Gu Nianshen, Lin Yiqian turned around and started walking away.

    "Lin Yiqian!"

    Gu Nianshen grabbed onto her arm with his strong hands which had exerted more force than intended.

    As soon as he noticed Lin Yiqian's frown, he loosened his grip.

    Lin Yiqian lowered her head and continued to walk forward. "Are you sad?"

    He sounded sarcastic.

    "Yeah. I'm sad." Lin Yiqian chuckled.

    As soon as she spoke, Gu Nianshen had reached out to her with both hands and pulled her into his embrace.

    She struggled to set herself free to no avail as her thin body was wrapped within his strong arms.

    "Stop moving." He ordered.

    He sounded like an arrogant child.

    Lin Yiqian could feel a thump in her heart as she raised her head up with a confused expression on her face. However, he held her head in place so that she could not raise it.

    "You have a strand of white hair," Gu Nianshen said with an annoyed tone as he combed her hair with his fingers.

    Then, Lin Yiqian could feel a stinging sensation on her scalp as a strand of hair was plucked.

    Lin Yiqian wanted to see how her white hair looked like as she grabbed at Gu Nianshen's wrist. "Let me see."

    However, there was nothing in Gu Nianshen's hand.

    Lin Yiqian pouted angrily as she lifted her face.

    "It fell." Gu Nianshen tilted his face to look at Lin Yiqian with an innocent expression.

    "You did it on purpose." Lin Yiqian lifted her hand away from his.

    Gu Nianshen ignored her as he raised her hand to her head once again. As he did so, he ran his fingers through her long hair.

    "You don't look good with long hair. Cut it off," he said with a disgusted expression.

    "Gu Nianshen!" Lin Yiqian gripped her fists tightly and placed them behind her thighs.

    'Gu Nianshen, what kind of girls do you like?

    'Girls with long hair that reaches their waists.'

    Lin Yiqian could remember the sting she felt in her heart as she forced a smile while she nodded. 'Alright.'

    ***

    The day after, news about the bet between Lin Yiqian and Song Changwen flooded the internet.

    In Shanghai, even Weibo reposted articles about it on the financial news segment.

    Readers were curious as to whether the older and more experienced Song Changwen would win the bet or if the younger Lin Yiqian would outshine her. However, most people believed that the outcome was obvious.

    How could Song Changwen, the experienced business-woman, possibly lose to her daughter-in-law who had no experience in the business realm?

    As soon as the news broke out, a large segment of employees, who had a day ago bore hope in the Lin family's company because of Gu Nianshen's helping hand, began to panic.
