225 You Really Are A Scheming Woman

    With her fists clenched tightly, Gu Nianjia looked down the staircase at Song Feifei and her mother.

    "Gu Nianjia, are you that much of a coward?" Lin Yiqian asked in disdain.

    "I'm not dumb enough to fight against a group of people on my own." Gu Nianjia naturally denied her cowardice.

    However, there were only two of them. Why would Gu Nianjia consider them as a group of people at all?

    Lin Yiqian was clearly unimpressed with Gu Nianjia's cowardice.

    Shaking her head incredulously, Lin Yiqian shifted her gaze down the staircase as she pointed a finger at Song Feifei. "She and her mother are here to apologize. Now that your mother and your brother are here too, they would not dare to bully you. Why don't you make her apologize to you by kneeling before you?"

    Lin Yiqian guessed that Gu Nianjia probably would not dare to do such a thing, more so because Song Changwen was there.

    Just as Lin Yiqian expected, Gu Nianjia immediately shook her head. "No, no. I don't want her to kneel before me. It would be bad luck for both of us."

    It was yet another seamless excuse by Gu Nianjia.

    "Oh..." Lin Yiqian tutted. "You're such a coward."

    After giving Gu Nianjia the side-eye, Lin Yiqian started walking to her room.

    "Lin Yiqian, stop right there." Gu Nianjia suddenly grabbed her arm.

    "What's the matter?" Lin Yiqian asked with a confused look on her face.

    Gu Nianjia pouted as tears filled her eyes. Clearly, she was feeling inferior.

    However, she was not willing to give in. "You're full of schemes. Why don't you help me out?" Gu Nianjia spoke in her usual disrespectful tone.

    Lin Yiqian looked at her with a tilted head. "I'll give you a chance to reform your sentence. First of all, change the way you address me."

    Lin Yiqian wanted to make use of this opportunity to get Gu Nianjia on her side, especially now that Gu Nianjia was desperate to exact revenge on Song Feifei and her mother.

    Moreover, Gu Nianjia was confident that Lin Yiqian would have some ideas on how to help her. "Sister-in-Law!" She finally called out.

    Gu Nianjia's grandfather had always told her that she should give in whenever necessary. After all, even the most successful people were able to tolerate all sorts of insults. Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian was merely her sister-in-law.

    Pleased by the way Gu Nianjia addressed her, Lin Yiqian motioned with a finger for Gu Nianjia to get closer.

    "You really are a scheming woman," Gu Nianjia said, after listening to what Lin Yiqian had to say.

    Then, Gu Nianjia could not help but smile from ear to ear as she covered her mouth.

    "You never fail to disappoint me with your schemes." Gu Nianjia patted Lin Yiqian on her shoulder before walking down the staircase.

    Lin Yiqian felt speechless.

    Was Gu Nianjia giving her a compliment or an insult?

    However, from the way she looked, Gu Nianjia must have been happy with Lin Yiqian's suggestion.

    With a smile, Lin Yiqian returned to her room.

    ***

    "Mother." Gu Nianjia approached Song Changwen warmly as she circled her arm around her mother's.

    However, Song Changwen seemed as cold and distant as she always had been.

    "Why is Nianjia not asleep at this hour?" Song Changwen asked.

    She truly had not expected Gu Nianjia to join them in the living room.

    "I heard that Sister Feifei and her mother are here to apologize to me. It would be rude of me not to come down," Gu Nianjia said as she winked at Song Feifei and her mother.

    Smart as she was, Jin Suisui immediately took the opportunity to apologize to Gu Nianjia. "Nianjia, it's my fault for what happened today. Please forgive me and help your Sister Feifei out. Won't you ask your brother to help us?"
