377 Do You Think Of Nianshen As Your Husband?

    Perhaps Gu Nianshen had lied so much that he could not even remember his lies.

    "He mentioned something about him being somebody else's husband and that boys and girls should not be too close," Lin Yiqian said through gritted teeth.

    Gu Nianshen frowned confusedly as he thought about what she said. "Is there anything wrong with those concepts?"

    "Won't he become someone else's husband one day? Do you think boys and girls should kiss each other randomly?" He pressed on.

    Although whatever he was saying made Lin Yiqian feel annoyed, she could not argue against his points.

    After remaining silent for a moment, she decided to change the topic. "What about his pretty wife he had mentioned?"

    Xiaoyu was such an innocent child. How could he possibly have learned about marriage and having a wife all on his own?

    "He was the one who has fallen for Qi Wuyue's niece. What could I have said to persuade him otherwise?" Gu Nianshen answered without hesitation.

    Lin Yiqian felt speechless.

    Qi Wuyue's niece... When did Lin Xiaoyu meet Qi Wuyue's niece?

    It was such a brief period of time. What had Xiaoyu gone through?

    Knock. Knock.

    Somebody was knocking on the door.

    Lin Yiqian and Gu Nianshen were both curious as to why it might be knocking at this hour in the night.

    Unless it was something important, Aunt Zhou would not bother them this late.

    "Come in," Gu Nianshen said as he stood up and walked to the door.

    As soon as the door was opened, a tall figure appeared. The room instantly felt much colder.

    When Lin Yiqian saw who it was, she immediately got up and smiled in a somewhat awkward yet polite way. "Mother!"

    Why had she come at such short notice? Lin Yiqian was not mentally prepared for it at all.

    She hurriedly looked at her own clothes and sighed in relief as she was dressed rather presentably.

    Song Changwen took a glance at Lin Yiqian without acknowledging her.

    Gu Nianshen was equally surprised by her sudden arrival. "Why are you here, Mother?"

    "I am here to find out what the hell is going on. You two are all over the internet. Aren't you ashamed of yourselves?" Song Changwen asked in a reprimanding tone.

    She then glared at Lin Yiqian as if shifting all the blame to her.

    "Mother, I was only telling the truth," Lin Yiqian replied innocently.

    They had always slept in different rooms. Gu Nianshen was the one who made up the story on that show.

    Was Lin Yiqian wrong for saying that?

    It would have probably been better if Lin Yiqian did not try to explain herself. "Don't you know that there are some truths which you can't speak about?" Song Changwen had raised her voice to an intimidating screech.

    "Oh. I'll remember to lie next time." Lin Yiqian nodded obediently.

    Although it sounded as if she was complying, there was something off about the way she responded. Was she implying that Song Changwen was forcing her to tell lies?

    "You..." Song Changwen seemed very upset.

    However, she resisted the urge to lash out at Lin Yiqian. Instead, she turned to face Gu Nianshen. "You useless man. You can't even handle your own woman. All you know is how to wind me up."

    As she spoke, she gently poked Gu Nianshen on his forehead.

    Song Changwen then turned her attention back to Lin Yiqian. "Have you ever thought of Gu Nianshen as your husband?"

    Lin Yiqian responded with a loud 'yes' in her mind.

    However, she looked at Gu Nianshen before she answered Song Changwen's question.

    Coincidentally, Gu Nianshen had also turned to look at her. "I guess..." Lin Yiqian said as if she was forced to.

    Song Changwen did not seem to notice Lin Yiqian's manner of speech. "If that's the case, you ought to know what must be done. Protect his external reputation, not destroy it."
