291 A Heart-warming Attention to Detail

    Lin Yiqian and Gu Nianshen were both stunned by what Xiaoyu had said as they instinctively turned to look at each other.

    Feeling somewhat embarrassed, Gu Nianshen's gaze darted away as he licked his lips with his tongue.

    Lin Yiqian could not help but feel her heart soften when she noticed how uncomfortable he seemed.

    She too shifted her gaze away to Xiaoyu. "Who has brought you here?"

    "Uncle Bai Se has. But Daddy said Uncle Bai Se shouldn't be here because he's too messed up. And then Uncle Bai Se left."

    Gu Nianshen remained silent.

    Must this little jerk pay attention to everything he said?

    Why did he only mention the part where Gu Nianshen had spoken badly about Bai Se and not the part where Bai Se said he had other things to attend to?

    Although Lin Yiqian was unsure of why Gu Nianshen had described Bai Se in such a way, she figured that he was most likely the person who stopped Bai Se from entering the room.

    Gu Nianshen had never been fond of interacting with strangers, let alone Xiaoyu's family whom he had always looked down upon.

    Therefore, Lin Yiqian was not surprised by his refusal to let Bai Se into the room.

    However, she would definitely be made fun of by Bai Se later on.

    Feeling helpless, Lin Yiqian's mouth twitched. "Eat slowly. I'll get you some water." She changed the topic.

    Worried that Xiaoyu might choke from eating too fast, Lin Yiqian intended to pour him a glass of water.

    She lifted the covers as she prepared to stand up.

    "Don't move." Gu Nianshen approached her and pressed onto her legs.

    He sounded a little forceful, yet protective and full of affection at the same time.

    Lin Yiqian stopped moving as her gaze followed after Gu Nianshen.

    Meanwhile, Gu Nianshen had walked over to the water dispenser. After retrieving a mug from the cabinet, he began to fill it with half a portion of cool water and half a portion of warm water.

    Lin Yiqian felt touched by his heart-warming attention to detail.

    Then, Gu Nianshen brought the mug over to Xiaoyu. Although he was frowning almost as if he was very reluctant to be doing this, Lin Yiqian was already very surprised by his actions.

    Gu Nianshen then held the mug carefully as Xiaoyu sipped from it.

    "At first, I was going to head to the office. However, as I came across the little guy on the way, I decided to bring him over," Gu Nianshen said expressionlessly after noticing that Lin Yiqian was staring at him.

    As soon as he explained himself, he felt that it had been unnecessary.

    He immediately turned to look at Lin Yiqian to observe her reaction.

    However, Lin Yiqian had not reacted to what he said but instead remained quiet.

    Just as things were beginning to feel awkward, Lin Yiqian's phone began to ring. She had asked someone to deliver her phone to her in the morning and she had it placed in the drawer next to her bed.

    Before Lin Yiqian could extend her hand to the drawer, Gu Nianshen had opened the drawer and handed her phone over to her.

    It was a call from Lin Quan's Marketing department manager.

    The call must have been related to work.

    "Hi," Lin Yiqian immediately answered the call.

    "Chief Lin, I have good news," the man exclaimed excitedly.

    "What is it?" Lin Yiqian asked in anticipation.

    "Fu Si has dropped out of the competition for a place in Yanbei Square. We got it instead!"

    "Why did Fu Si drop out?" Lin Yiqian asked, surprised.

    Why did Wan Suqin give up on her scheme so soon?

    Had she not already gotten Fu Chenghai on her side? Why would she give up this easily?

    Ever since the meeting, Lin Yiqian had been thinking of ways to fend for her company. And yet, the reward had come to her without her having to do anything at all.

    It felt surreal.

    However, nothing ever came free. There must have been some underlying scheme that Lin Yiqian was not aware of. Either that, or someone had decided to help her without her being aware of it.

    "I'm not quite sure about the exact details. But the sales department from Yanbei Square called us earlier. They requested that we get the contract signed as soon as possible."
