340 Thats Not Me

    Whilst Gu Nianshen was still troubled by his own thoughts, a familiar female figure suddenly began walking down the stairs.

    He hurriedly shifted his gaze away from Aunt Zhou's phone and straightened his back. "That's not me."

    After finishing his sentence, he began walking to the staircase.

    "That's not possible. It's written here that it was you. Moreover, I saw the pictures and they were, indeed, of you."

    As Gu Nianshen had walked away, Aunt Zhou instinctively spoke in a louder voice.

    Whilst speaking, she continued to inspect the photos in the news article to make sure that they were really of Gu Nianshen.

    She felt very confused.

    Annoyed, Gu Nianshen stopped walking and turned to look at Aunt Zhou. "Aunt Zhou, are you very free? Are you done preparing breakfast?"

    He clearly sounded upset.

    "It's ready." Aunt Zhou nodded as she put her phone away.

    When she looked in the direction of the staircase, she noticed Lin Yiqian. "Little Yi is here too. We can begin eating now."

    Right then, Lin Yiqian had already reached the bottom of the staircase.

    When Gu Nianshen saw Lin Yiqian walking by, he opened his mouth with the intention of speaking. However, Lin Yiqian did not even look at him from the time she had appeared.

    Therefore, whilst he hesitated to speak, Lin Yiqian had already passed him by.

    When Gu Nianshen saw Lin Yiqian's cold demeanor, he gritted his teeth. "Lin Yiqian!" He finally called out.

    He sounded very insistent.

    "Yes?" Lin Yiqian looked at him confusedly.

    Her calm expression discouraged Gu Nianshen from speaking his mind.

    This happened every single time. She would always appear cold and distant to others as if she did not want anyone to approach her.

    Before someone even said a word, they would have already been able to predict her answer.

    Gu Nianshen waited for a moment before he began murmuring. "Song Changlin had brought the clothes you bought... for the children.

    "They're by the door." He pointed at the door as he spoke.

    Children's clothing...

    Lin Yiqian finally recalled that Song Changlin had helped her to carry the bag of clothes for little girls. As she had been occupied after returning home, she had completely forgotten about it.

    Lin Yiqian sighed. It was because nobody was waiting to wear those clothes.

    She could not help but look at Gu Nianshen as the thought appeared in her mind. 'Don't you want a daughter? We can have one together...'

    Lin Yiqian lowered her head as she chuckled lightly to herself at the thought of Gu Nianshen's words on that night.

    Why did she still remember his sarcastic words? Perhaps she actually wanted to believe him.

    "Alright." Lin Yiqian shook her head as she chuckled before lifting her head to look at Gu Nianshen.

    Then, she walked over to the door to pick up the clothes.

    To be honest, Lin Yiqian was just trying to avoid a confrontation. She badly wanted to turn around and express her true feelings and emotions.


    Gu Nianshen clenched his fists tightly as he punched the air. He then gritted his teeth as he walked upstairs.

    After taking a quick shower, he spent some time brooding as he stood in front of the mirror whilst putting clothes on.

    If he had not tossed the clothes away, he might have been able to wear the clothes that his wife had bought.

    Regret filled his heart as he finished putting his clothes on.

    Then, he walked down the stairs and headed directly to the dining room.

    However, after seeing that Lin Yiqian was not in the dining room, he slowed down in disappointment.

    When Aunt Zhou came out of the kitchen, she saw Gu Nianshen standing by the door. "Nianshen, I've heated up your milk," she said with a chuckle.

    "Where is Lin Yiqian?" Gu Nianshen asked after turning his head around to find that the room was completely empty.

    "She went out for a jog. She said she will return to eat soon."

    Hearing this, Gu Nianshen instantly made a decision as he began walking into the kitchen.
