376 Why Did You Lie To Xiaoyu?

    Although the door to the balcony was left open, Lin Yiqian still saw no sign of Gu Nianshen.

    When she turned around and was about to search for Gu Nianshen downstairs, she unintentionally caught sight of a few shirts wrapped in plastic.

    They looked like white basketball jerseys.

    Lin Yiqian's curiosity got the better of her as she walked over and was able to see the logo of a black horse printed on the shirts.

    She suddenly recalled that Li Nanmu had informed the team members at the basketball court that the jerseys had already been delivered to their houses.

    Looking at the white jerseys, there was an overwhelming excitement in her heart. After taking a glance at the door behind her and realizing that there was no movement, she hurriedly picked one of the jerseys up.

    The thrill she felt at that moment must have been what it was like for thieves who stole from other people.

    As Lin Yiqian carefully examined the jersey, she noticed that apart from the white base, the edges of the number 'one' in red had been changed to black. Moreover, there were also additional black lines around the collar and an extra logo of the black horse on the left chest. In comparison to the previous version, this one seemed much more complex. However, there weren't any major changes in the overall design.

    However, Lin Yiqian was curious as to why there were four sets of jerseys instead of just two.

    With a confused look on her face, she picked up each set to examine them and discovered that half of them weighed differently. After thoroughly examining them, she also noticed that the number 'one' printed on the back was different for two of the jerseys. The word 'family' was sown into the number.

    The first thought which came to her mind was 'family number one'.

    Lin Yiqian suddenly felt excited.

    Her grip on the jersey subconsciously tightened as the plastic cover began to make sounds.

    "Do you like it?" Gu Nianshen's genuine voice could be heard from behind Lin Yiqian all of a sudden.

    Feeling guilty, Lin Yiqian immediately dropped the jersey as she turned around with a frown. "Why did you leave the clothes on the couch? I couldn't even lie down when I wanted to."

    Afraid of looking at Gu Nianshen in the eyes, she began walking toward the bedroom after yelling at him.

    In truth, she wanted to ask who the jerseys were for. However, she did not have the courage to ask him directly.

    She was afraid that it was all part of her imagination.

    "Two of them belong to you," Gu Nianshen said.

    Lin Yiqian immediately stopped in her tracks.

    "Are they for me?" She asked in disbelief as she turned around.

    Were they really for her?

    There was a joyous look of surprise in her eyes. In that moment, her eyes seemed to glisten like tiny little stars.

    "Yeah. Li Nanmu had ordered them for anyone who has gotten married or has a girlfriend." Gu Nianshen nodded.

    Then, he shifted his face to one side as he reached for the jerseys on the couch and placed them on the coffee table.

    He was afraid of seeing Lin Yiqian's reaction.

    "Oh."

    She sounded calm and unemotional.

    Although Gu Nianshen had already expected something along those lines, he could not help but feel disappointed. When he lifted his head, he was surprised to find that Lin Yiqian was looking at him.

    "Didn't you want to lie on the couch?" He blurted out before processing the words in his mind.

    Those were Lin Yiqian's own words...

    With a pout, she began walking back to the couch before sitting down and leaning her back against it.

    She still could not take her eyes off the jerseys that Gu Nianshen had left on the coffee table.

    Meanwhile, Gu Nianshen had also sat down closely next to her.

    They were so close to each other that they would have come into contact with any slight movements.

    As Lin Yiqian's heart skipped a beat, she tried to think of something to say.

    All of a sudden, she recalled why she had come.

    "Gu Nianshen, why did you lie to Xiaoyu?" She asked in a huff.

    "What did I lie to him about?" Gu Nianshen raised his brows.

    He seemed genuinely clueless as to what he had done.
