284 Mrs. Gu Asked Me About Your Schedule Yesterday

    Did Gu Nianshen misunderstand Qi Shaodong for being insincere? However, Qi Shaodong was certain that he had smiled warmly.

    From the looks of the dark eye circles, Qi Shaodong was certain that Mrs. Gu must have given him a great surprise last night. Gu Nianshen probably stayed up all night and had a good time.

    "Are you hiding something from me?" Gu Nianshen asked after he had caught the look of guilt in Qi Shaodong's eyes.

    "No." Qi Shaodong shook his head.

    "If you don't tell me the truth, you can stop working for me." Gu Nianshen snorted coldly before walking into his office.

    In other words, Qi Shaodong was going to be fired.

    "I promised Mrs. Gu that I wouldn't tell on her." Qi Shaodong ran after Gu Nianshen with a panicked look on his face.

    Gu Nianshen's wife had forbidden Qi Shaodong from telling the truth. It was not his choice.

    As soon as Gu Nianshen heard Lin Yiqian's name, he stopped walking and glared at Qi Shaodong. "Speak!"

    He was not to be questioned.

    Qi Shaodong shivered under Gu Nianshen's gaze. "Mrs. Gu asked me about when you would return," he immediately responded.

    He had no choice but to betray Mrs. Gu.

    Gu Nianshen's eyes widened in surprise. He had a rough idea of what had transpired.

    However, he wanted to be certain. "Did you tell her?"

    Qi Shaodong nodded with a pout. "She blackmailed me with you as the main threat. Of course, I had to tell her. I told her that our flight would depart at noon. She even asked me if you had an appointment in the evening and I told her that you didn't."

    Now that Qi Shaodong had told Gu Nianshen everything he knew, he hoped that he would not be fired.

    After finishing his sentence, Qi Shaodong looked at Gu Nianshen in anticipation of his response.

    However, before he could perceive anything from Gu Nianshen's facial expression, Gu Nianshen turned around and ran off.

    'Eh?' Feeling confused, Qi Shaodong's gaze followed after Gu Nianshen.

    From Gu Nianshen's reaction, Qi Shaodong wondered if what he had guessed about last night had actually happened between Gu Nianshen and Lin Yiqian.


    Once Gu Nianshen got out of the office, he drove directly to the hospital where Lin Yiqian was at. Upon arriving, he immediately ran to Lin Yiqian's room.

    He stopped at the door.

    After pacing in front of the door for a long while, he still could not bring himself to open it.

    Just as he raised his hand to the doorknob, and was prepared to open the door, he retracted his hand yet again.

    This would not do. He had not figured out what to say yet.

    Should he apologize right away?

    Based on how proud Lin Yiqian was, she would definitely ignore him. Perhaps, she might even ask him to leave. It would be extremely embarrassing for him.

    'Lin Yiqian, I heard that you made dinner for me last night.' Gu Nianshen thought if he should ask her that instead.

    She would definitely deny it.

    Perhaps he could try something else. 'Lin Yiqian, why did you ask Qi Shaodong about my schedule?'

    It did not sound like an appropriate question to ask Lin Yiqian as it would be awkward for her. She would still find an excuse to pardon herself.

    After contemplating multiple ways of starting the conversation, Gu Nianshen still could not find one that sounded sensible.

    As he took two steps backward, he leaned against the wall behind him whilst crossing one hand in front of his chest and resting his cheek against the other. There was a frown on his face as he continued to ponder.

    "Brother, what are you doing?"

    Suddenly, Gu Nianjia walked into the hospital with an insulated food container.

    She must have come from home.

    "Don't be so loud," Gu Nianshen said through gritted teeth.

    Gu Nianjia thought that something bad might have happened as Gu Nianshen seemed to be sneaking around. "What happened?" She asked in a soft voice as she got closer to him.

    Gu Nianjia was already thinking about all the possible worst-case scenarios.

    "What is this?" Gu Nianshen asked as he shifted his gaze to the insulated food container.

    "Aunt Zhou sent someone over with plain porridge. It's Lin Yiqian's breakfast."
