355 Did He Ever Care About Social Civility?

    Hearing this, Gu Nianshen immediately snorted. "Give us an offer based on the current market value. Forget about everything else."

    This was not a subject open to discussion.

    Then, Gu Nianshen held Lin Yiqian's hand in his as he began walking toward her grandmother's portrait.

    "That land belongs to us. Even if you are wealthy and powerful, how can you claim what does not belong to you?" Lin Yiqian's oldest aunt retorted.

    "Your husband may have certain connections with Mega in terms of business dealings..." Gu Nianshen stopped walking as he turned around slowly.

    Lin Tianwan's face immediately turned pale.

    He quickly approached his wife before dragging her behind him before giving her a look of warning.

    The Gu family was very influential in the business scene. Even if Lin Tianxi's business did not have links to the Gu family, Gu Nianshen could easily ruin his business if he wanted to.

    ***

    After Lin Yiqian's oldest aunt had been silenced by Lin Tianxi, the room became quiet.

    With Lin Yiqian's hand in his, Gu Nianshen continued to approach her grandmother's portrait.

    Upon arriving there, he let go of Lin Yiqian's hand as he reached for three incense sticks in the box. After lighting them up, he held them in his hands as he bowed to his grandmother-in-law's portrait.

    Lin Yiqian was both shocked and touched by the sight of that.

    If Gu Nianshen had showed up because she was his lawfully wedded wife, he might only support her for the sake of his own image.

    However, why would he still light incense sticks for her grandmother?

    Why did he search for the clothes she had bought?

    Why did he sit in her car and played those songs related to confessions of love to one's wife?

    Lin Yiqian did not care.

    She no longer wanted to know what the reasons were. From now on, she would simply assume that he no longer hated her. Perhaps, he had slowly become invested in their marriage just as she had expected from the beginning.

    As Lin Yiqian thought of this, she extended her hand to Gu Nianshen's arm.

    Despite how difficult it was to muster the courage to do so, Lin Yiqian ignored all her concerns as she reached for Gu Nianshen's arm and held it tightly.

    After Gu Nianshen had placed the incense sticks on the altar, he turned around and glanced at Lin Yiqian before flipping her hand around so that he was holding it at the center of his palm.

    Without saying a word, they began walking toward the main entrance.

    As the two passed by Lin Tianwan and the others, they barely batted an eyelid at the group of people.

    Once they had made it out of the main entrance, Gu Nianshen began walking faster and faster. It felt as if he was experiencing a surge of emotions.

    However, his hand was still holding Lin Yiqian's.

    Lin Yiqian did not understand why he had a sudden change in mood. "Gu Nianshen." She probed as she looked at his handsome face confusedly.

    Things were fine just a moment ago. What was going on?

    Gu Nianshen ignored Lin Yiqian as he continued to storm out of the courtyard.

    "Nianshen..." Lin Yiqian raised her voice after they had stepped out of the courtyard.

    "Am I an embarrassment to you?" Gu Nianshen asked in a huff as he finally stopped walking and he turned around to face Lin Yiqian.

    "What do you mean?" Lin Yiqian could still not quite get it.

    She still seemed confused.

    "Why didn't you ask me to come with you for the anniversary of your grandmother's death?"

    Huh?

    Was he blaming her for not asking him to come along today?

    Lin Yiqian raised her brows as she was uncertain if her guess had been correct.

    Seeing how Lin Yiqian still looked confused, Gu Nianshen wondered if he had made his thoughts too obvious.

    "If I don't show up, other people will think that I am impolite and do not care about social civility." He tried to cover his thoughts up.

    Hearing this, three large question marks popped up in Lin Yiqian's mind.

    Was he ever polite?

    Did he ever care about social civility?
