242 Did You Pay Attention To Me Back Then?

    'No way.' Lin Yiqian thought to herself. This man did not have much patience. Lin Yiqian was worried that Gu Nianshen might toss Xiaoyu onto the bed if he became upset enough.

    As she thought of this, she hurriedly walked over to Gu Nianshen and took Xiaoyu away. "Xiaoyu, go to bed now. If you don't sleep, the old witch will come and get you."

    Lin Yiqian continued speaking as she placed Xiaoyu on the bed.

    "Lin Yiqian, you are so childish." Gu Nianshen chuckled when he heard Lin Yiqian's words.

    She might as well have said that the wolf is coming.

    Lin Yiqian remained silent.

    Did Gu Nianshen not know this was how one persuaded a child?

    "Didn't you do the same to Gu Nianjia when you were kids?" Lin Yiqian stared at Gu Nianshen annoyedly.

    Whenever Gu Nianjia cried, Gu Nianshen would look at her with a disgusted expression on his face and tell her that the old witch would take naughty children away.

    Even when Gu Nianjia was already seven years old, she was still scared of his threats. Each time Gu Nianshen used this trick on her, she would stop crying.

    Therefore, Gu Nianjia had always been afraid of going out alone at night.

    "Is that so?" Gu Nianshen frowned as he tried to recall his past.

    Since he could not recall it, he assumed that it had never happened.

    "That's impossible!" Gu Nianshen exclaimed, confidently.

    Seeing how he truly could not remember it, she continued to dig up his past. "You were driving a bike with Gu Nianjia behind you. The two of you ended up crashing into flower pots by the road. You even told Gu Nianjia not to tell anyone."

    Gu Nianshen was able to recall this incident very well. Until today, Gu Nianjia still had a vaguely visible scar on her kneecap. Each summer, she would complain to Gu Nianshen about it when she wore skirts.

    'However, how did this fool find out about it?' Gu Nianshen wondered.

    "Did you pay attention to me back then?" Gu Nianshen asked.

    Lin Yiqian turned her panic-stricken face away from Gu Nianshen to look at Xiaoyu who was, by now, sound asleep.

    "I happened to have seen the incident. Why would I pay attention to you?" She pretended to walk to the couch in a very natural manner.

    When Gu Nianshen heard her response, a disappointed look appeared, briefly, on his face.

    He then lowered his head and chuckled at himself.

    Gu Nianshen had nearly forgotten that they were already in the sixth grade and Song Changlin had already moved to Shanghai. Lin Yiqian and Song Changlin had become acquainted by then.

    If he remembered correctly, that was the period when Lin Yiqian began to study hard and obtained excellent grades.

    As Gu Nianshen thought of this, he started walking to the couch and sat next to Lin Yiqian.

    Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian had picked up an apple and was peeling its skin. Her bright red fingernails glistened on each of her long and thin fingers.

    The sight reminded Gu Nianshen of that summer when she sat in front of the piano in her school uniform. She had performed beautifully in front of a large crowd of teachers and students from various well-known schools.

    He recalled that she was given a standing ovation after her performance.

    At the time, Lin Yiqian had already become popular in school and was pursued by many male students.

    However, she would always appear to be out of reach, disappointing anyone who thought of approaching her, including Gu Nianshen.

    Gu Nianshen remembered how he loved and hated her at the same time. He hated her because he could not get her love.

    Suddenly, Gu Nianshen turned to face Lin Yiqian before inching closer to her face.

    Lin Yiqian was so surprised that she nearly cut her hand. As she turned her head to face him, the man's handsome face was only inches away from hers. She could feel her hair brushing against his nose.

    The tickling sensation made Gu Nianshen's heart beat even faster.

    "Did you know that apart from Gu Nianjia and myself, nobody knows about what happened on that day?" He hurriedly said.

    Lin Yiqian shuddered when she heard his tone of speech. She immediately drew away slightly before she nodded. "I believe Gu Nianjia is loyal only to you."
