172 He Can Eat, Sleep, and Set People Up

    Lin Yiqian then lifted the corner of the bed cover before making her way onto the bed. After turning off the main lights in the room, she dimmed the bed lights before lying down very gently.

    She was lying on her side with her back toward Gu Nianshen.

    Although it was not her first time sleeping next to Gu Nianshen, this was the first time she felt this excited.

    That was because it was the first time the three of them were sleeping on the same bed as a family. It was also the first time Xiaoyu slept next to his father.

    'Nianshen, how I hope you would hug Xiaoyu and let him feel what it's like to sleep in your arms.' Lin Yiqian thought.


    Lin Yiqian held on to the frame of the bed as she was afraid of making any sudden movement.

    Her limbs were going numb from lying in the same position. However, oddly enough, neither Gu Nianshen nor Xiaoyu had made any noise.

    Could they both be asleep?

    Lin Yiqian frowned confusedly before softly calling out. "Gu Nianshen."


    The man's reply came with a hint of sleepiness.

    It sounded raspy and attractive.

    Lin Yiqian held the bed cover tightly. "Is Xiaoyu asleep?" She asked in a soft voice.

    "No," Gu Nianshen replied.

    'Is he not asleep yet? Why isn't he moving then?' She thought.

    "What is he doing?" Lin Yiqian asked curiously.

    "He's sucking on his finger."

    That explained why Xiaoyu had not made any sound at all.

    He would normally suck on his finger when he was about to fall asleep.

    Lin Yiqian closed her eyes for a while before asking yet again. "Is he asleep now?"

    She wondered if Xiaoyu had fallen asleep by now.

    "No." A man's hoarse voice could be heard.

    'Still not asleep?' She thought.

    This should not be happening. It was odd for Xiaoyu not to ask Lin Yiqian to tell her bedtime stories if he was not asleep.

    Lin Yiqian decided to check on him herself. As she flipped over on one side, she used her arm to support herself as she glanced at Xiaoyu.

    The little fellow was lying with his face down and his butt in the air without any motion. It was his classic pose after he had fallen asleep. Obviously, he must have already fallen asleep.

    'Why did Gu Nianshen say that he isn't asleep yet?'

    Lin Yiqian turned to face Gu Nianshen with her brows raised in confusion.

    However, his eyes were shut as if he had fallen asleep.

    Perhaps he was too tired and had replied to her without even checking.

    Well, he must have been exhausted by the entire day of driving around and being annoyed.

    Lin Yiqian felt a little guilty. As she looked at Lin Xiaoyu who had taken up nearly half the space in the bed, she spoke in a soft voice. "Xiaoyu is asleep. I'll go back to my room now."

    Uncertain as to whether Gu Nianshen had heard her, she lifted the bed cover and was prepared to get out of bed.

    However, Gu Nianshen's hand suddenly pressed down on her chest, forcing her to lie back down. Her heart raced.

    When she turned her head with a surprised look on her face, Gu Nianshen turned to face her as well.

    However, his eyes were still closed in a natural manner.

    Even so, his hand was still resting above her chest with very little pressure. Lin Yiqian's heart was pounding.

    By the time she woke up, Gu Nianshen had already disappeared while Lin Xiaoyu was still in deep sleep. She could not remember when and how she had fallen asleep.

    As Xiaoyu's mouth was slightly ajar, there was a line of drool that was dripping onto the pillow next to his face.

    Lin Yiqian could not help but rub her hand gently across his adorable face.

    'Little kid, your days are filled with eating, sleeping, watching the cartoon, and setting people up!' She thought.


    In the morning, the hotel lobby was filled with people arriving and leaving. Lin Yiqian was dressed in very simple clothing and wore a cap as she held Xiaoyu's hand as they waited for the elevator to arrive.

    "Mrs. Gu."

    Lin Yiqian heard someone calling out 'Mrs. Gu'. As she was unsure of whether it was her name being called, she turned to look in the direction where the voice had come from.
