163 Hes Probably Adopted

    'No way. This kid has got to go. I can't let her bring him home for the night.' Gu Nianshen thought as he picked up his phone to text Qi Shaodong. "Call the little jerk's family. Tell them we will leave him on the streets if they don't pick him up."

    Very soon, Qi Shaodong replied, "That family is truly odd. They said they feel that the child is safe with you since you are Mega's CEO. In fact, they are not willing to pay one million for him, and would be willing to sell the child to you for one million instead, if you'd like."

    Gu Nianshen was speechless.

    Could this kid be adopted?

    Gu Nianshen frowned as he turned to look at Lin Xiaoyu who was kneeling in front of the window and carefully examining the succulents.

    All of a sudden, Gu Nianshen felt that Xiaoyu was very similar to the succulents. They were both fleshy and soft.

    As Lin Yiqian noticed Gu Nianshen staring at Lin Xiaoyu with a frown, she followed his gaze and saw Xiaoyu pinching one of the succulents' leaves.

    Her heart sank.

    Was Gu Nianshen concerned with the succulents?

    Her gaze returned to Gu Nianshen's face as the sound of broken pots could be heard by the window.


    Lin Yiqian nervously looked at Lin Xiaoyu, unsure of what had happened.

    The child stood up and frightfully turned to face her and Gu Nianshen. Behind him, pots of succulents had fallen to the ground and there were broken pieces of pots and soil all over the floor.

    For an instant, Lin Yiqian actually felt overjoyed by what she saw.

    However, almost immediately, she remembered to check Gu Nianshen's reaction. Those were handmade flower pots from Xi Xia.

    Gu Nianshen must be furious.

    "I didn't do it on purpose. I like the big smiley faces and wanted to touch them," Xiaoyu explained, after a moment of stunned silence.

    As Xiaoyu pointed at one of the pots with his finger, a look of fear appeared on his face.

    "It's okay. Those are just plants. I'll buy Mr. Gu new ones tomorrow. Don't be afraid." Lin Yiqian went over and hugged Xiaoyu.

    After consoling Xiaoyu, Lin Yiqian turned to look at Gu Nianshen who was still frowning at Xiaoyu.

    She could not quite tell what he was thinking about or how he felt.

    It seemed that he was not as angry as she had imagined.

    "Lin Yiqian, you are such a compassionate person." Gu Nianshen snorted.

    It was a sarcastic comment.

    "Being compassionate towards the elderly and the young is a virtue." Lin Yiqian smiled.

    Then, Lin Yiqian let go of Xiaoyu and turned around to pick up the flower stand. However, there were pieces of flower pots and soil all mixed together, which made it very difficult for her to clean up.

    "Let's throw these succulents away. There are a lot of bugs in the soil." She turned to look at Gu Nianshen.

    Gu Nianshen's silence surprised her.

    Perhaps he was not willing to express his anger toward a child.

    As Gu Nianshen did not reply to her after a long while, Lin Yiqian proceeded to pick up the flower pots that were not damaged.

    However, before her hands touched one of them, Gu Nianshen suddenly spoke, "Leave it. I'll get the cleaners to take care of it tomorrow."

    It was a command.

    Lin Yiqian could not help but feel joy in her heart. Did he mean that he would throw all of the succulents away?

    Although her joy came from the source of someone else's pain, she whole-heartedly accepted it because this was related to Gu Nianshen.
