148 Its Normal To Have an Illegitimate Child

    Gu Nianshen did not show any reaction at all as he could not be bothered by Lin Xiaoyu.

    'So what if you're angry? It's not like you can manipulate the weather.' Gu Nianshen rolled his eyes as he thought.

    Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian was peeking at the two from afar. When she saw how Gu Nianshen ignored Xiaoyu's pleas, and how tears filled Xiaoyu's eyes, she felt an urge to run over to him and reveal Xiaoyu's identity.

    However, she still lacked the courage to do so. Lin Yiqian feared that if he found out what she had done five years ago, he would kill her out of anger. Perhaps he would hate her so much that he would not even follow through with his grandfather's will.

    They were only eighteen...

    Back then, Xi Xia was the apple of his eye. Lin Yiqian did not even dare to imagine how he must have reacted when he woke up after that fateful night.

    As Lin Yiqian held on tightly to the railing on the wall, she was pressing so hard against it that the blood in her fingers had been drained.

    She then saw Xiaoyu picking up the napkin and wiping his hands and mouth with it. However, he did not seem to be doing a good job as the stains were still very much apparent.

    Lin Yiqian held her breath before turning around and leaning her back against the wall. She tried to call Bai Se again but his phone was still turned off.

    'This fellow!'

    This was the first time she felt this angry at Bai Se. In the past, Bai Se had accepted some events on her behalf. Although she felt reluctant, she could understand his reason for doing so as it was to ensure she could become recognized in the industry.

    However, this was related to Xiaoyu. She could not afford to lose him.

    "Chief Lin... " A familiar voice could suddenly be heard. Lin Yiqian was taken by surprise as her phone nearly slipped out of her hands.

    She frantically turned around to find that Fang Heyang was already standing next to her with a lollipop in his mouth.

    "Fang Heyang, when did you arrive...?" She asked nervously.

    When she subconsciously turned to look in the direction of the Haagen-Dazs store, she realized that Gu Nianshen and Lin Xiaoyu had already left.

    'When did they leave?'

    Lin Yiqian ignored Fang Heyang as she wanted to find out where the two had gone.

    "Chief Lin!"

    As soon as Lin Yiqian started walking away, Fang Heyang suddenly grabbed her wrist.

    Confused, she turned around to see him frowning at her pitifully.

    "It's normal for a rich man like him to have an illegitimate child. Don't feel too sad now." He smirked.

    Then, Fang Heyang let go of her hand before tucking his hand into his pocket while he continued to suck on his lollipop.

    Lin Yiqian felt speechless.

    This fellow must have been there much earlier to see Gu Nianshen eating ice-cream with Xiaoyu. Moreover, he probably thought Xiaoyu was Gu Nianshen's illegitimate child from another woman.

    Did he think Lin Yiqian was feeling sad because of that?

    Was he consoling her because he felt bad for her?

    The misunderstanding had certainly originated from perfect logic.

    In all honesty, he was not completely wrong. At the very least, Xiaoyu was indeed Gu Nianshen's child. However, she was not sure if he could be considered an illegitimate child.

    Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian did not know how to respond to Fang Heyang.

    "Would you like me to give you a hug?" Fang Heyang removed the lollipop in his mouth before asking.

    As he spoke, he extended his arms as he waited for Lin Yiqian to embrace him.

    While Lin Yiqian rolled her eyes, she pointed at a large pillar several meters away. "Do you see that?"

    "What?" Fang Heyang asked confusedly.

    "If you would like a hug, you can hug that pillar," Lin Yiqian said as she rolled her eyes yet again. Then, she walked past Fang Heyang and began heading toward the Haagen-Dazs store.
