368 Assume Responsbility For One’s Mistakes

    When Li Yiqian heard what Gu Nianshen said, she immediately waved her hands fearfully. "There's a saying that if you walk along the river, you cannot avoid getting your shoes wet. What if I got pregnant? Since you can't accept the child that I bear and I don't want to have one either, let's sleep separately. It's better for you and me."

    Although Lin Yiqian had spoken very nonchalantly, there was a tinge of sarcasm in her tone.

    As Gu Nianshen could pick it up very well, he was immediately reminded of what he had said out of anger to her the night before.

    'As long as the child isn't yours, I would be able to accept it...'

    Was she still mad at him because of this?

    Did it mean she actually cared, even if just a little?

    With their lips still gently touching each other's and their breath so close to one another, both of their hearts began to race.

    Moreover, Gu Nianshen's smile was becoming obvious, as if he could see through everything.

    Lin Yiqian's face was starting to turn red. "I have some work to do. I can't spend any more time with you now." She hurriedly pushed Gu Nianshen away.

    By taking advantage of Gu Nianshen being distracted, she anchored her legs against the couch and pushed him away from her.

    With the empty space in front of her, she quickly got up and took several steps back away from Gu Nianshen.

    As she straightened the wrinkles on her clothes, she began speaking coldly. "Although you do not like Xiaoyu, I am very fond of him. I have already communicated with his family and I've agreed to adopt him as my godson. For the next few days, I will be staying with him in the office. Mr. Gu, you won't have to see him or worry about him."

    To Gu Nianshen, it sounded like she was trying to pick a fight.

    The more he disliked something, the more Lin Yiqian wanted to do it. In other words, she was just trying to let him know that she was upset.

    "Lin Yiqian!" Gu Nianshen gritted his teeth.

    There was no way he would let her get away from the problem she created.

    ***

    As Xiaoyu was with her, Lin Yiqian did not head to the recording studio.

    However, she was in a meeting the entire afternoon. Her secretary was the one who looked after Xiaoyu for her.

    During her meeting, Lin Yiqian would text her secretary from time to time to check on Xiaoyu.

    The meeting was dragging on as the marketing department was reporting on the monthly plan for the following month. By the time Lin Yiqian walked out of the meeting room, it was already half-past five.

    She immediately made her way back to her office.

    "What is Xiaoyu doing inside?" Lin Yiqian asked when she saw her secretary sitting at her desk.

    Her secretary immediately stood up and she seemed to be avoiding Lin Yiqian's gaze guiltily.

    Seeing this, Lin Yiqian hastened her footsteps as she began to feel nervous. "What happened?"

    Lin Yiqian pushed the door wide open and was about to step inside.

    "Xiaoyu... Xiaoyu has already been taken away by Mr. Gu," her secretary replied timidly.

    Lin Yiqian immediately balled up her hands into fists as she stopped walking.

    "You can withdraw your salary from the finance department tomorrow." Lin Yiqian turned around and looked at her secretary coldly.

    Lin Yiqian made it clear that she was firing her secretary.

    Then, she paid no more heed to her secretary as she began walking into her office.

    Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian's secretary was still in denial as she had been fired so suddenly. "Chief Lin, Mr. Gu said that he would take Xiaoyu with him. Xiaoyu went with him willingly too." She tried to explain.

    Lin Yiqian stopped walking as she turned around to look at her secretary with a serious expression on her face. "Xiao Mi, regardless of where you work in the future, you must remember one thing, that is to work only for the person who pays you. I won't blame Mr. Gu for taking Xiaoyu away. However, I will definitely not continue to employ a person like you."

    Lin Yiqian was being so frank that there was no way her secretary could argue with her.

    Instead, the secretary remained silent.

    ***

    As soon as Lin Yiqian entered her office and closed the door behind her, she immediately made a call to Gu Nianshen.
