202 The First Blessing

    Gu Nianshen did not stay on as he followed after Lin Yiqian out of the room.

    "Why didn't you do it earlier?" Gu Nianshen asked after they had both entered the car.

    He seemed very disappointed with her.

    Lin Yiqian was unable to react in time.

    "Ah?" She asked, confusedly.

    "You've mellowed down compared to when you were a kid." Gu Nianshen looked at Lin Yiqian in disgust as he turned the engine on.

    Lin Yiqian blinked several times. Was he referring to the fact that she had not hit Song Feifei?

    This was the only possible explanation she could think of.

    However... Song Feifei was his biological cousin.

    How had Song Feifei made him upset?

    "What did Song Feifei do to you?" Lin Yiqian asked, curiously.

    Based on how well she understood Gu Nianshen, he would not bother doing anything to Song Feifei if she had not wronged him first.

    "She messed with my pig," Gu Nianshen said after pondering for a moment.

    From the corner of his eyes, he looked at Lin Yiqian with a faint smile that was barely noticeable.

    "You have a pig now?" Lin Yiqian asked, surprised.

    "Yeah," Gu Nianshen replied with a deep voice as he nodded.

    Naturally, Lin Yiqian thought of the kind of pink pig that would be kept as a pet. "Is it the kind that never grows bigger in size?"

    Based on Gu Nianshen's net worth, it was unlikely that he would be involved in the pig farming business.

    "It's more expensive than that," Gu Nianshen replied after thinking for a second.

    He actually did have a pig.

    Lin Yiqian shook her head in disbelief as she glanced at Gu Nianshen. "I never thought of you as the owner of a pet."

    'Much less a pig owner.' She thought.

    Lin Yiqian suddenly felt very curious and wanted to see how the pig looked like and why it was deemed so important by Gu Nianshen.

    "Here."

    While Lin Yiqian pondered about how Gu Nianshen's pig looked like, he suddenly handed her a red packet.

    "What is this for?" She looked down, stunned.

    Seeing that she did not immediately take it from him, Gu Nianshen directly tossed the red packet onto her lap. "Why do you think I brought you here today?"

    Gu Nianshen rolled his eyes as he kept his eyes on the road.

    What was the meaning of this?

    Did they not come for a meal today?

    Lin Yiqian blinked as she looked down at the red packet and picked it up.

    Having given it a squeeze, she could feel the thickness and guessed that there was a large sum of money in it.

    As she opened the red packet, she saw stacks of brand new notes in hundreds.

    There were an additional two dollars and fifty cents.

    If she were not mistaken, it was the tradition of families in Shanghai to give newly-weds red packets as a form of blessing. Regardless of how much the total amount was, they would always add two dollars and fifty cents, which signified that couples would stay together forever.

    Therefore, did this mean Gu Nianshen's grandmother had given them her blessing?

    Lin Yiqian suddenly felt overwhelmed as she began to pull the money out of the red packet.

    This was the first blessing she and Gu Nianshen had received after they had gotten married.

    As she held the money in one hand, she used the other hand to rub it.

    Gu Nianshen frowned at her behavior.

    Why was she behaving as if she had never seen money before?

    "Did Grandmother ask you to give this to me?" Lin Yiqian suddenly turned to face Gu Nianshen.

    'Your grandmother is tall and fair. This should suit her very well...'

    'Did Grandmother ask you to give this to me?'

    Gu Nianshen felt that the lack of the word 'your' in how she addressed his grandmother had brought them closer to each other.

    As he turned to face the window, he licked his lips and smiled.

    Then, he turned around and nodded at Lin Yiqian, emotionlessly. "Yeah."

    ***

    As soon as they arrived, the first thing Lin Yiqian did was to put away the red packet safely in her room.
