297 Family Members Are Not Allowed

    To prepare for the competition against Fu Zhong, Li Nanmu, and Qin Feng, as well as the rest of the team, they had applied for a week off from work to stay in Shanghai for their training.

    They did not have a choice as they needed the almighty Gu Nianshen's help.

    Since they needed him, they would have to accommodate his schedule and his preferred venue.

    That was why they regretted not setting stricter boundaries when they were kids.

    It was because of their relenting behavior ever since they were kids that allowed Gu Nianshen to get what he wanted. Over time, they became accustomed to such behavior.

    As annoying as it was, there was nothing they could do about it.

    The men were not too different in height. Li Nanmu was the only person who was slightly shorter than the rest. If he wore shoes with a thicker base, he would just about reach 180cm.

    The rest of them were all at least 183cm. Qi Wuyue, in particular, was 186cm and was slightly taller than Gu Nianshen.

    The white jerseys seemed to look more classy when these men wore them.

    While the others had arrived much earlier, Gu Nianshen was the only person who came late. When Gu Nianshen walked out of the changing room, he seemed to be taking his time.

    "Nianshen, are you done yet?" Li Nanmu asked impatiently.

    "Li Nanmu is the only person who dares to speak to Gu Nianshen in such a way." Qin Feng chuckled as he pointed out to Qi Wuyue next to him.

    "That's because we are not the kind who would ask for trouble, unlike him." Qi Wuyue smirked.

    Before Qi Wuyue could finish his sentence, Gu Nianshen's voice was heard.

    "No. Do you have a problem with that?" Gu Nianshen frowned at Li Nanmu. With Gu Nianshen's advantage in height, he seemed to be looking down at Li Nanmu both literally and metaphorically.

    Undeterred, Li Nanmu pointed at Gu Nianshen. "If you don't stop acting like a jerk, I'll fire you and hire NBA stars to play for us."

    "Great!" Gu Nianshen uttered.

    Li Nanmu remained speechless.

    Qin Feng could not help but laugh out loudly. "Hahaha..."

    As he laughed, he rested an arm against Qi Wuyue's shoulder. "Ah Yue, you know Li Nanmu too well." Qin Feng tutted as he shook his head.

    Qi Wuyue's immediate reaction was to push Qin Feng's hand off his shoulder as he disliked being touched by others.

    Then, he slowly fixed the wrinkles on his shirt before responding. "I know you very well too." Qi Wuyue glared at Qin Feng before walking toward the basketball court.

    There were two other teammates who were also their classmates in school. One of them was a substitute who was one year their senior. He was already waiting at the basketball court.

    After everyone had put their belongings aside, Gu Nianshen took out his phone from his pocket and was about to place it on the ground.

    However, he decided to check if there was anything new on WeChat.

    His only objective in doing so was to see if Lin Yiqian had shared a new post with her circle of friends.

    However, it seemed that Lin Yiqian was not active in publishing posts. Ever since her last post of a tortoise, she had never shared anything new. Therefore, when he saw a notification that Lin Yiqian had recently shared something, he became excited.

    Gu Nianshen immediately checked what she had posted.

    'Alone in the hospital, stuck with the smell of disinfectant. It's so boring!' Lin Yiqian even used a sad emoticon at the end of her sentence.

    Feeling sorry for her, and without hesitating, Gu Nianshen made a call to Qi Shaodong.

    "Go to the hospital right now and bring Lin Yiqian to the fourth basketball court in Chengxi Stadium," Gu Nianshen immediately said after Qi Shaodong had picked up the call.

    "Alright," Qi Shaodong answered without asking any question.

    Meanwhile, Li Nanmu felt annoyed when he overheard that Gu Nianshen was getting someone to bring Lin Yiqian over. "Gu Nianshen, what is the meaning of this? We've talked about it and agreed that family members are not allowed to visit as it might affect our efficiency in training."
