149 I’ll Only Wait For An Hour

    The seats occupied by Gu Nianshen and Xiaoyu had already been cleaned up by the waiter. As Lin Yiqian frantically looked around, she could not locate the familiar figures of an adult with a child.

    She began to dial Gu Nianshen's number as panic took over.

    "Gu Nianshen, where are you now?" Lin Yiqian asked as soon as the call was picked up.

    Her heart pounded as if it would leap out of her chest soon.

    "What's up?" Gu Nianshen asked coldly.

    Lin Yiqian was unsure of how to answer the simple question. After a moment of stunned silence, she raised her head as a fast-food restaurant across from her came into sight. "I wanted to ask if you've had lunch."

    "If you haven't, could we have lunch together?" She added after feeling slightly guilty for what she had said.

    However, before she finished her sentence, she had already regretted her decision.

    "I'm at the office. I'll only wait for an hour. If you are going to arrive any later, don't bother coming," Gu Nianshen very quickly replied.

    "I..."

    Lin Yiqian's mouth was wide open. Just before she started speaking, she heard the beep sound in her phone.

    She was dumbfounded now.

    'Wasn't he at the airport a while ago? How could he be at the office now?'

    'Did that mean that he was already on his way back to the office?'

    'What about Xiaoyu?'

    Regardless, she was not too worried that Xiaoyu would be lost. That was because she knew Gu Nianshen very well. Despite his lack of patience with children, he was a morally just person. Lin Yiqian was certain that he would either send Xiaoyu to the police station or to the airport staff.

    As she thought of this, she tried to dial Bai Se's number yet again. It actually worked as she could hear the dial tone.

    Lin Yiqian sighed with relief.

    "Little Yi."

    When she heard Bai Se's voice, her voice turned cold. "Bai Se, I hope something like this doesn't happen again."

    Lin Yiqian was really upset. Before Bai Se could explain anything, Lin Yiqian immediately started giving an order, "Check where Gu Nianshen has taken Xiaoyu to."

    "My phone ran out of battery earlier. I had just managed to restart it. Don't worry. I've already gotten a text from Gu Nianshen. He has sent me his assistant's number so that I could reach out to him. Xiaoyu must have given him my number," Bai Se replied.

    Lin Yiqian immediately felt relaxed.

    However, she was still somewhat upset at Bai Se. "Find Xiaoyu, bring him to the hotel immediately and keep a close eye on him. I'll be there very soon."

    It was a tone of absolute certainty.

    "Alright," Bai Se replied.

    ***

    After Gu Nianshen had hung up on Lin Yiqian, he immediately gave Qi Shaodong a call.

    "Qi Shaodong, where are you?" He asked hurriedly.

    "I'm coming, I'm coming. I see you."

    After hearing Qi Shaodong's response, Gu Nianshen turned his head around. When he finally saw Qi Shaodong waving at him, he hung up and walked over to him.

    Two steps later, Gu Nianshen remembered that Lin Xiaoyu was still with him. As he turned around, he saw Xiaoyu running after him as quickly as he could.

    Unable to tolerate Xiaoyu's slow pace, he walked over, frowning, before picking Xiaoyu up.

    "Get the car, quickly," he called out to Qi Shaodong.

    Seeing how Gu Nianshen was in a rush, Qi Shaodong was worried if something major had happened. "Boss, what happened?"

    "If you can't get me back to the office in forty minutes, you can pack your bags and leave," Gu Nianshen said as he continued walking.

    When Qi Shaodong heard what Gu Nianshen had said, he immediately started leading Gu Nianshen to the car park.

    After taking a few steps, Gu Nianshen looked as if he had just remembered something as he passed the child over to Qi Shaodong. "Hold him."
