286 Lin Yiqian, I Am Sorry!

    As soon as Gu Nianjia stepped out of the lift, her phone started ringing. The word 'Beast' appeared on the screen.

    She began to feel nervous and even contemplated canceling the call immediately. However, she did not have the courage to do so and eventually answered the call.

    "Hey," Gu Nianjia said.

    "You don't have to study law anymore. Come back." A familiar man's voice could be heard.

    "Have you really decided not to force me to study law?" Gu Nianjia's eyes lit up.

    "Yeah," the man answered helplessly.

    "In that case, get my rank up to Legendary and I will go back."

    "You might fail all your subjects this semester," the man replied calmly. Although he sounded very gentlemanly, Gu Nianjia still felt goosebumps all over her body.

    However, if she had managed to blackmail her own brother, who else would she be afraid of?

    Gu Nianjia straightened her back as she began speaking to Professor Zhang. "If you refuse to help me reach the Legendary rank, I won't go back. At my current level, I'd only bump into noobs who yell at people. It's impossible to play the game that way. I've already broken three phones. If I can't play games, what's the point of going back to school?"

    "I'll help you after this class." The man finally agreed to compromise.

    "In that case, I will return tomorrow. I've been invited to dinner with a few high school friends tonight," Gu Nianjia said with a smile.

    Indeed, one had to fend for herself if she wanted to get what she wanted.

    "I have asked your brother to book a flight for you today. You have a class with me this evening."

    "Zhang Jingyu, you're a sick man." Gu Nianjia retorted.

    Before she could say anything, the call was ended from the other end.

    Did the fellow actually hang up on her?

    Gu Nianjia gritted her teeth as she tried her best not to fling the phone onto the ground.


    After Gu Nianshen had finished texting Zhang Jingyu, he entered Lin Yiqian's room with the insulated food container in his hand.

    The first place he looked at was Lin Yiqian's bed. She was not in it.

    Just as he was about to walk further into the room, a flushing sound could suddenly be heard from the bathroom.

    Then, the door to the bathroom opened.

    Lin Yiqian was wearing a loose-fitting patient's robe. While one of her hands clung onto the metal bar on the door, her other hand was pressed against her stomach as she walked out of the bathroom.

    As soon as she saw Gu Nianshen, she stopped walking. There was a confused expression on her pale face.

    Almost immediately, her gaze turned cold as she shifted it away from Gu Nianshen whilst she continued to walk.

    As her stomach was still hurting, she struggled to maintain an upright back when she passed by Gu Nianshen.

    Without even thinking about it, Gu Nianshen reached for Lin Yiqian's arm. "How delicious was your food anyway? You have managed to eat your way into the hospital. Don't you find it embarrassing?"

    The frown on his face was so obvious. He seemed disgusted with Lin Yiqian.

    "Perhaps my dishes don't taste as good to you. But I think they are amazing. The only person I'm embarrassing is myself. What has it got to do with you?" Lin Yiqian pushed him away as she spoke.

    Gu Nianshen was eventually pushed into a corner where he leaned his back against the wall.

    Due to her heightened emotions, Lin Yiqian's stomach began hurting again. Her face became even paler as she extended her hand to Gu Nianshen yet again in an attempt to push him away further.

    Gu Nianshen reached for her wrist before he started apologizing.

    "I'm sorry. My mother has been down with a fever for the past two days. As I have only returned last night, I took the time to visit her then. Coincidentally, Xi Xia was discharged from the hospital. That's why my grandmother had asked me to stay for dinner."
