335 The First Encounter With A Cunning Woman

    "I will pass on dinner. Thank you for sending me home," Lin Yiqian said as she removed her helmet before slowly placing it on the seat.

    Then, she turned to look at Fang Heyang with a smile on her face.

    Fang Heyang was speechless.

    He shifted his gaze to the villa before him as he blinked several times.

    Fang Heyang still could not believe what had just happened.

    When Lin Yiqian saw his facial expression, a cunning look appeared on her face.

    "Perhaps you might want to come in for a cup of tea." Lin Yiqian pointed in the direction of the courtyard half-heartedly.

    "This is my first encounter with such a cunning woman," Fang Heyang said with a frown.

    After shifting his gaze away, he held onto the helmet Lin Yiqian had removed while opening the storage compartment below the seat before placing the helmet inside.

    Then, he hopped onto the motorcycle. With gritted teeth, he turned to look at Lin Yiqian.

    Lin Yiqian looked at him with a harmless smile in return as she waved her hand at him affectionately.

    Without saying a word, Fang Heyang turned the engine on and began driving away.

    Lin Yiqian could feel from the way he drove that he was still upset. Chuckling to herself, she shook her head before turning around as she headed for the courtyard.

    Suddenly, a person appeared from behind the pillar near the entrance of the courtyard.

    Lin Yiqian was startled.

    Instinctively, she took a few steps back. When she recognized that the person was Lin Tianwan, her facial expression instantly turned cold. "What are you doing here?"

    Lin Tianwan was wearing a plain striped t-shirt and long pants. He seemed helpless as he approached Lin Yiqian. "I've been calling you and yet you never picked up. That's why I came here."

    "What is it?" Lin Yiqian asked impatiently.

    "Little Yi, why don't you come home for dinner this weekend?" Lin Tianwan pleaded.

    He had spoken very softly and carefully for fear that Lin Yiqian might reject him.

    However, Lin Yiqian did not seem persuaded. She still looked cold and distant. "If that is why you came, you may leave now. I am not interested in having a meal at your place."

    Lin Tianwan was hardly surprised that she had rejected him. "Little Yi, I know that you hate me. I've wronged you and your mother. However, this weekend is the tenth anniversary of your grandmother's death. Your uncles will all be there. Just bring Gu Nianshen along for dinner. You know that your grandmother loved you the most when she was still around. Ever since you and Gu Nianshen got married, you've not gone to visit her altar."

    As soon as Lin Yiqian's grandmother was brought up, her eyes glistened.

    Her determination had finally unraveled.

    Indeed, apart from her parents, her grandmother was the only person who liked her in the family. The rest of her relatives, including her grandfather, her uncles, and her aunts, only liked Lin Yuqing and her other siblings. Moreover, they would do all sorts of things to pick on Lin Yiqian's mother because she could not give birth to a boy for their family.

    Lin Yiqian's relatives were concerned that the Lin family's business would one day fall into her hands and subsequently belong to an outsider.

    Therefore, her grandmother was the only person who treated her warmly. After all these years, Lin Yiqian had still not been to her grandmother's altar.

    After pondering for a moment, Lin Yiqian began to reply to Lin Tianwan. "I can go..."

    Lin Tianwan's eyes lit up as soon as he heard her. However, he knew that she would have something else to say. "As long as you are willing to come back, I will agree to anything you ask of me."

    "Is that so? Will you do anything that I ask of you?" Lin Yiqian smirked.

    Lin Tianwan was slightly intimidated by her tone of voice as his mouth became slightly ajar whilst waiting for her to continue speaking.

    "I don't want to see Jiang Yuexiang on that day."

    As soon as Lin Yiqian ended her sentence, she began walking into the courtyard without waiting for Lin Tianwan's response.
