198 I Was Busy With Marrying Your Granddaughter-in-law

    "Let's go." Gu Nianshen walked over to Lin Yiqian and held her hand as he started walking toward the house.

    The furniture in the house were all mostly made of mahogany timber. Even the chandelier was an old-fashioned design from the olden days of the Republic of China.

    As there was nobody in the living room, the house felt rather empty.

    "Master Nianshen, you're here," a servant greeted Gu Nianshen with a smile as she walked out of the dining hall. "I'll inform your grandmother right away."

    After a short while, an old lady with a head full of white hair appeared by the stairs on the second floor. She was wearing a black-colored cheongsam made of flannel with dark red inlays on the sides. For a woman of age, she seemed indescribably elegant.

    As she supported herself by holding onto the handrail, she glanced at Lin Yiqian and Gu Nianshen before walking down the stairs.

    Feeling the tense aura from her grandmother-in-law, Lin Yiqian subconsciously tightened her grip on Gu Nianshen's hand.

    'Husband, you must protect me!' She thought.

    Lin Yiqian followed after Gu Nianshen as the two approached his grandmother. "Grandmother," Gu Nianshen called out.

    "Grandmother." Lin Yiqian nodded politely.

    Although she felt a little pressured, she maintained her calm composure.

    Gu Nianshen's grandmother glanced at her in acknowledgment.

    "This is why people tell me that I should not show too much affection to my grandchildren. I haven't seen you at all for the last three months," she said while looking at Gu Nianshen.

    As she did so, she walked past Gu Nianshen and sat down on the couch.

    Gu Nianshen pulled Lin Yiqian along to sit beside her. "I was busy with marrying your granddaughter-in-law."

    "Look. She has even brought you a gift." He pointed at the bag of the scarf in Lin Yiqian's hands.

    "I don't deserve it," Gu Nianshen's grandmother replied with a straight face.

    Without even looking at Lin Yiqian, she continued to speak to Gu Nianshen, "If your mother hadn't pressured you to come, you probably would not have decided to come here."

    Gu Nianshen remained silent just as a servant brought a pot of tea over.

    He first poured Lin Yiqian a cup of tea before doing the same for his grandmother.

    Meanwhile, his grandmother took everything in quietly before taking a small sip of the tea he had served her.

    "Feifei is still your cousin. Even if you don't respect her parents, you should respect me enough to treat her better," she said, angrily.

    "Alright, if something like this happens again, I will definitely take my phone out and look at your photo. I'll solve it while making sure to respect you at the same time." Gu Nianshen nodded.

    His grandmother remained silent.

    Evidently, Song Changwen had acquired her trait of elegance from her mother. They both focused on the big picture. Since Lin Yiqian was present, Gu Nianshen's grandmother decided to keep her cool.

    "What's done is done. Feifei will be joining us shortly. Do your best to make her happy," she said in a deep voice.

    After finishing her sentence, she intentionally glanced at Lin Yiqian.

    Feeling somewhat lost, Lin Yiqian nodded. "Oh."

    However, if she were not mistaken, Gu Nianshen probably did something to upset Song Feifei.

    Why would he harm Song Feifei out of the blue?

    Lin Yiqian looked at Gu Nianshen confusedly.

    Right then, a high-pitched voice could be heard from the second floor. "Brother Shen, you brought this woman to my house."

    The gloomy mood had been disrupted.

    Lin Yiqian turned her head around just in time to see Song Feifei charging toward them in a long white dress.

    Gu Nianshen's facial expression turned cold when he saw how Song Feifei was glaring at Lin Yiqian.

    The temperature in the room dropped drastically.

    Before Song Feifei could say anything else, Gu Nianshen's grandmother started speaking. "Aren't you participating in the singing competition. If you want to ask Gu Nianshen to help you out with connections, ask him in a nice manner during our meal."
