154 Forever the Beam of Moonlight in His Hear

    "Chief Song couldn't reach you on the phone earlier. She has to attend a very important meeting with the government, which would take up to three hours. That's why she's asking you to head to Russia to make arrangements first," Feng Si said.

    Lin Yiqian shifted her gaze to Gu Nianshen's face.

    She could not help but squeeze her hands tightly together.

    Gu Nianshen's facial expression suddenly changed as he put down the glass of water on the table. "Why did she have a fever? Where were the nurses and doctors who were supposed to be with her?"

    "I don't know exactly what happened. But I've already booked a flight for you," Feng Si said, urgently.

    As he spoke, Feng Si began to wipe away the sweat on his forehead as his breathing slowed down.

    Without saying anything further, Gu Nianshen instantly turned around and picked up his phone from the desk.

    He looked as if he was about to leave.

    "Gu Nianshen, aren't you going to eat with me?"

    Lin Yiqian called out after standing up nervously.

    In that instant, there was only one thing on her mind. She had to make Gu Nianshen stay.

    In fact, she wanted to beg him not to leave. She wanted him to care less about Xi Xia.

    However, she immediately regretted her actions.

    How could that even be possible?

    How could Gu Nianshen not care about Xi Xia or not worry about her condition?

    She would forever be the beam of moonlight in his heart.

    Lin Yiqian had never spoken this gently to Gu Nianshen.

    As Gu Nianshen felt his heart fall, he turned around and looked at Lin Yiqian with a confused expression.

    Right then, Feng Si suddenly spoke, "Mrs. Gu, Xiaxia's life could be in danger as we speak. She doesn't know anyone in Russia."

    Feng Si looked at Lin Yiqian as he spoke in almost a reprimanding tone.

    As he had done so in front of Gu Nianshen, there was nothing Lin Yiqian could do about it.

    Lin Yiqian clenched her fists tightly before placing them behind her legs. After glaring at Feng Si, she turned to face Gu Nianshen as she composed herself and kept her calm demeanor.

    "I've ordered a little too much and was worried I couldn't finish it. But it's okay. I'll ask the others to have some of it. Have a safe trip," Lin Yiqian spoke softly as she smiled.

    She turned around immediately.

    Indeed, Gu Nianshen felt that it was only an illusion...

    As Gu Nianshen clenched his fists tightly, he turned around and began walking away in big strides.

    As soon as he walked out of the room, Lin Yiqian took two steps back before sitting down on the couch. She then leaned back to look at the ceiling before chuckling to herself.

    "Mrs. Gu."

    Qi Shaodong returned after sending Gu Nianshen and Feng Si off.

    When she heard his voice, Lin Yiqian immediately sat upright and looked over.

    There were two bags in his hands. Lin Yiqian could recognize the logos on the bags which were from the food delivery company she had selected.

    "Toss it away." She glared at the bags before giving the order.

    Qi Shaodong did not dare to question her as he prepared to leave.

    "Qi Shaodong," Lin Yiqian suddenly called out.

    "Is there anything else, Mrs. Gu?" Qi Shaodong asked with a confused expression on his face.

    "What's with the child you mentioned earlier?" Lin Yiqian asked, curiously.

    She had nearly forgotten about Xiaoyu after the recent turn of events.

    "Our CEO said that the kid's parents were behaving irresponsibly. That's why he is asking for a million dollars in ransom to teach them a lesson," Qi Shaodong replied.


    That was right. Lin Yiqian was indeed an irresponsible mother to Xiaoyu. She owed him far too much.

    Lin Yiqian sighed. "If they are willing to pay a million dollars now, will you return the child to them?" She asked.

    This was the exact question that bothered Qi Shaodong. "I wish I knew the answer. However, the CEO has left without an answer. I have no idea what to do now."
