195 I Didnt Choose To Come On My Own

    As Gu Nianshen continued to work without responding to Song Changwen, she felt hurt and decided not to take up any more of his time. "I'm leaving now. Don't forget to have lunch," she added.

    As if suddenly recalling something, she stopped and pointed at Gu Nianshen. "You have to give a satisfactory explanation for what happened to Feifei, especially to your grandmother."

    Gu Nianshen nodded obediently. "Alright. Coincidentally, I plan to visit Grandmother sometime soon. After all, she hasn't given her granddaughter-in-law her blessings in the form of a red packet yet."

    Just as he completed signing a document, Gu Nianshen raised his head to smile at Song Changwen, innocently.

    "You're a bad boy. You'll be the death of your grandmother." Song Changwen pointed at him with mixed emotions.

    Then, she turned around and stormed off.

    Even after working hours, Lin Yiqian was still bogged down by work.

    Before she could complete one thing, something else demanded her attention.

    As she frantically tried to resolve a work-related issue, her phone suddenly began to ring, causing her to feel even more agitated.

    "What is it?" She picked up the call without checking who was on the other end of the line.

    "Did you take the wrong kind of medication?" A familiar man's voice could be heard.

    Lin Yiqian was stunned for a moment. "What's up?" Her voice immediately became milder as she recollected herself.

    Dropping the pen in her hand, she picked up a glass of water before spinning her chair to face the window. All her thoughts on work had disappeared.

    "Come down," Gu Nianshen ordered.

    "You're here?"

    Lin Yiqian hurriedly walked up to the window before looking down.

    Instantly, a black car came into view. A man dressed in a white shirt was standing next to it with a phone to his ear.

    "Alright. I'll be there right away." She nodded joyfully.

    After hanging up, Lin Yiqian immediately packed her things up.

    By the time she arrived at the road, Gu Nianshen had already gotten into the car. Without any hesitation, she immediately opened the door on the passenger's side and got in.

    "Where are we going?" Lin Yiqian asked as she put her seatbelt on.

    "To have a meal," Gu Nianshen answered, expressionlessly.

    Lin Yiqian assumed that he had a work-related meal and would like to use her as an excuse to leave early just as he did the night before.

    However, she soon discovered that he was driving in a direction that became increasingly familiar.

    Finally, after ascertaining where they were headed to, she turned to face Gu Nianshen with a confused expression. "Are you going to your grandmother's place?"

    If they headed further down the current path, they would soon arrive at the Chengbei Villa District. That was where Song Changlin lived.

    Seeing that Lin Yiqian recognized the way to the Song family's house, Gu Nianshen's facial expression turned gloomy. "Are you happy?" He asked, sarcastically.

    "You're the one who brought me here. I didn't choose to come on my own," Lin Yiqian said, hurt.

    She figured out that he assumed that she would be very happy about meeting Song Changlin.

    In other words, he was concerned that she and Song Changlin would do something that affected his reputation.

    After all, he had obtained everything he possessed now by receiving merciless rebuke and spiteful jest from others.

    Lin Yiqian turned to look out the window after finishing her sentence.

    When the traffic light turned red, Gu Nianshen turned to look at her.

    As he stared at the back of her head, an unnoticeable frown appeared on his face. Was she really mad?

    Could he have been overthinking?

    As he pondered, the traffic light turned green. Gu Nianshen lifted his foot from the brake pedal as the car continued to move forward.

    "Stop at the shopping mall in front." Lin Yiqian suddenly pointed at a shopping mall several hundred meters away after they had crossed a junction.

    "Why?" Gu Nianshen asked.
