157 She Stole I

    "Mrs. Gu, you're such a kind person. You are very caring and patient with children," Qi Shaodong said.

    Qi Shaodong's impression of Lin Yiqian had improved tremendously.

    In the future, he would teach his boss how to keep treat his wife better.

    Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian rolled her eyes. 'He's my son. How could I not treat him with love and patience?'

    Without answering Qi Shaodong, she hung up and began to take Xiaoyu upstairs.

    After entering Gu Nianshen's office, she directly headed into the adjoined bedroom.

    The room was not very big. There was a single bed, a desk, and an old-fashioned cupboard in it. As soon as she entered the room, there was a neat and tidy bathroom with little decorative items in it.

    It was a pleasant environment.

    Lin Yiqian carried Xiaoyu to the bed. As the young fellow had fallen asleep in her arms, she did not want to wake him. Therefore, she carefully and gently laid him down on the bed.


    As soon as he landed on the bed, he woke up and frantically reached for Lin Yiqian's hand.

    He sounded very scared and clearly reflected how unsafe he felt on the inside.

    "Mommy is here." Lin Yiqian laid down next to him and patted him on the chest.

    As soon as Xiaoyu heard Lin Yiqian's voice, he became calm and looked around curiously. "Mommy, where is this place?"

    "This is dad..." Lin Yiqian stopped.

    She stopped at the word 'dad' and took a pause to correct herself. "Mr. Gu's office."

    "Mr. Gu?"

    As soon as he heard that this was Mr. Gu's office, Xiaoyu became wide awake. He looked around from left to right.

    There was a look of awe in his eyes.

    Lin Yiqian felt speechless.

    How much did this kid like that man? He was barely awake a moment ago. It was as if he had just been injected with steroids.

    Xiaoyu seemed to show a lot of respect for Gu Nianshen's office and bedroom.

    "Where is Mister Gu?" The young fellow asked eagerly after looking around.

    "He..." Lin Yiqian's eyes darkened. "He has some work to attend to. Why don't you take a nap, Xiaoyu?"

    Lin Yiqian laid Xiaoyu down on the bed before lying down herself.

    "Will I see Mr. Gu after I wake up?" He asked excitedly.

    He seemed very eager and hopeful.

    "Xiaoyu..." Lin Yiqian was unsure of how to answer him.

    "Mommy, what's wrong?" Xiaoyu blinked confusedly at her hesitance.

    "Nothing. Let's sleep now." Lin Yiqian shook her head gently.

    Lin Yiqian placed her hand on his chest to help him sleep. However, the child hugged her arm with his hands. "Mommy, please stay with Xiaoyu here."

    It was a gentle plea.

    Then, Xiaoyu obediently closed his eyes.

    Lin Yiqian felt tears in her eyes as she leaned forward to give him a peck on the forehead. "Alright. I'll be here with you, Xiaoyu."


    As it was night-time in America, it was also bedtime for Xiaoyu. He fell asleep as soon as he closed his eyes.

    Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian lay down by his side and quietly observed him.

    This was her favorite moment every night she returned from work. From his brows to his nose and his mouth, and even his blood, everything was related to Gu Nianshen.

    Xiaoyu was also her only possession related to Gu Nianshen.

    She had stolen it.

    After Xiaoyu had fallen asleep, Lin Yiqian carefully pulled her hand away before gently rubbing a black spot on his face.
