311 Change the Way You Plead

    As Lin Yiqian walked in front, Gu Nianshen followed after her at a steady pace.

    Once they arrived at the lift, Lin Yiqian was about to press the button when Gu Nianshen's hand suddenly appeared from behind her. Their hands accidentally made contact.

    Lin Yiqian turned her head around to find the figure of a tall man standing very close to her. After being stunned for a brief moment, she hurriedly moved her hand away.

    After pressing the button for the lift, Gu Nianshen drew his hand away before stepping closer to Lin Yiqian. "You ought to remember what the doctor has said. I hope you can do it all as needed," He said coolly.

    "Yeah. Apart from eating with another person, I can do the rest." Lin Yiqian nodded.

    'If you insist that I eat with another person, why don't you eat with me?' She thought.

    However, as soon as she finished her sentence, the lift arrived.

    Gu Nianshen ignored Lin Yiqian as he stepped into the lift.

    As there were other people in the lift, Lin Yiqian and Gu Nianshen both stared at the ground the entire time without speaking a word.

    As Gu Nianshen had asked their personal driver to pick Lin Yiqian up, he and Lin Yiqian parted ways as soon as they walked out of the lift.

    After Lin Yiqian was brought home, she stayed in her room for a short while before coming up with an excuse to go to the recording studio.

    As soon as she picked up her purse, her phone began to ring.

    It was a call from an unknown number. Lin Yiqian hesitated for a moment before picking up. "Hello. Who is this?"

    "I am Gu Nianjia." A familiar female voice could be heard.

    "Oh," Lin Yiqian replied nonchalantly.

    Gu Nianjia and Gu Nianshen were siblings, after all. The way they introduced themselves was equally arrogant.

    However, Gu Nianshen had every reason to behave in such a way because everyone knew his name. Meanwhile, Gu Nianjia was a spoiled brat and barely anyone knew who she was. What right did she have to be so arrogant?

    "What is it?" Lin Yiqian asked after a moment had passed.

    "I have gotten into a fight with another student. The school has asked someone from my family to come over. As I don't want my mother to find out, could you come over?" Gu Nianjia asked.

    Although Gu Nianjia sounded arrogant in the earlier parts of her speech, her tone of voice eventually became mild.

    'Huh?' Lin Yiqian thought she must have heard Gu Nianjia mistakenly. "Are you sure you weren't the one who was hit?"

    How could Gu Nianjia beat anyone up?

    Gu Nianjia would only ever dare to fight with another person verbally. Even so, she would only do so with the protection of her family members. However, as soon as things got physical, Gu Nianjia would always lose.

    Growing up, Lin Yiqian wondered how many times Gu Nianjia had been beaten up by Song Feifei.

    "Are you kidding? How could I possibly be beaten up? I am the alpha female in school." Gu Nianjia retorted as she was annoyed by Lin Yiqian's suspicion toward her statement.

    Lin Yiqian felt speechless.

    She recalled that Gu Nianjia once ran to Gu Nianshen's class to beg for his help when she was bullied by Song Feifei.

    Amused by Gu Nianjia's thick-skinned disposition, Lin Yiqian decided not to embarrass her.

    "Why don't you look for your brother or your youngest uncle?" Lin Yiqian shook her head as she laughed.

    'Wouldn't Gu Nianjia normally look for her youngest uncle?' Lin Yiqian wondered.

    "Forget about my brother. If he were to come, I'd face much harsher consequences. On the other hand, my youngest uncle has been very busy lately. He's been working until midnight nearly every day. Moreover, he's still in the office right now. If he were to leave, he would have to ask for my mother's permission. She would then find out that I got into a fight at school," Gu Nianjia said.

    It seemed that Gu Nianjia did have a brain after all.

    During key moments such as this, she was still able to analyze everything reasonably.

    Therefore, Gu Nianjia was inferring that Lin Yiqian was the optimal candidate to resolve her issue.

    As Lin Yiqian thought of this, a sly smile appeared on her face. "Shouldn't you consider changing the way you plead?"

    A beggar should not be this arrogant.
