189 Counting His Heartbea

    Lin Yiqian's heart stopped beating.

    A familiar fragrance entered her nostrils. In that instant, she suddenly panicked and wanted to raise her head.

    However, Gu Nianshen's hand was still pressed against the back of her head, preventing her from doing so.

    Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian was equally unwilling to resist his grip. As such, she continued to lean against his chest as she listened to the sound of his heart beating.

    To calm her nerves, she began counting his heartbeat. 'One... Two... Three...'

    It seemed to be getting faster and faster.

    However, Lin Yiqian could feel that the grip of Gu Nianshen's hand on her head had loosened. As she began to recollect herself, she slowly lifted her face, only to find herself lost in his beautiful eyes. They were breathtakingly beautiful.

    Lin Yiqian's fingers that were rested on her lap trembled as she wanted to touch him, eagerly.

    At that moment, the world fell quiet as if there were only two of them in it. They could not take their eyes off one another.

    Gu Nianshen stared at her luscious red lips before slowly lowering his lips to meet hers.

    As the smell of alcohol grew stronger with him leaning in, Lin Yiqian held her breath as her heart pounded.

    As soon as their lips met, Lin Yiqian felt a chill down her spine. She closed her eyes as she tried to stop herself from thinking about anything else.

    Regardless of whom he was thinking of at the moment, all Lin Yiqian cared about was that he was holding and kissing her.

    When Lin Yiqian closed her eyes, Gu Nianshen's eyes lit up joyfully, so much so that he wanted to touch her hand.

    Coincidentally, one of their phones rang, causing the two to immediately snap out of the moment.

    As Lin Yiqian's eyes opened, she pulled away from Gu Nianshen's embrace.

    Frantically, she fished for her phone in her purse. When she realized that it was a video call from Xiaoyu, she peeked at Gu Nianshen, cautiously, from the corner of her eyes.

    By then, he had already moved slightly away and was looking out of the window.

    After hesitating for a moment, Lin Yiqian picked up the call.

    As soon as Xiaoyu's adorable face appeared on the screen, Lin Yiqian's heart melted. "Xiaoyu, what happened?" She asked, softly.

    "I miss Mommy." Xiaoyu pouted.

    "I miss adorable Xiaoyu too." She replied calmly despite feeling very emotional.

    "Are you with Daddy?"

    Xiaoyu simply would not stop talking about that fellow.

    Lin Yiqian glanced at Gu Nianshen with a frown to find him leaning against the window. As he rested his chin on his hand, he seemed to be engrossed in the view outside.

    "Hmm... Yes." She turned to look at Xiaoyu's face on the screen.

    "I want to talk to Daddy. I want to hear Daddy's voice," Lin Xiaoyu exclaimed excitedly.

    Lin Yiqian could not bring herself to turn him down.

    Hence, she turned to look at Gu Nianshen. "Gu Nianshen, why don't you say a few words to Xiaoyu?"

    Gu Nianshen turned around and frowned at Lin Yiqian before lowering his gaze to the phone. He could sense the excitement and joy on Xiaoyu's chubby face.

    "Hmm." He murmured without any expression.

    He had actually agreed...

    Lin Yiqian smiled cheerfully in response. However, after a long time, Gu Nianshen did not seem to want to take the phone from her. In fact, he did not say a single word.

    'Damn! You fooled me!'

    "It's alright if you don't want to talk," Lin Yiqian snapped.

    Then, she retracted her hand that was holding the phone.

    Right then, Gu Nianshen responded with a deep voice. "I already spoke."
