425 Thats A Reward

    Lin Yiqian was feeling bad for Xiaoyu.

    Despite Xiaoyu's one-sided feelings, Gu Nianshen barely reciprocated them.

    "What did he say about me?"

    Gu Nianshen looked up at Lin Yiqian. There was a glimmer in his eyes.

    Lin Yiqian acutely picked up the change in his facial expression, which sparked joy in her heart.

    It did not appear that he had no feelings for Xiaoyu at all.

    Although it may not exactly be of fondness, it could well mean that he did not dislike the child as he had said previously.

    "He asked when he would be able to see you again." Lin Yiqian kept her eyes on Gu Nianshen.

    "It would be best if I never see him again." Gu Nianshen snorted.

    He proceeded to grab another piece of lobster flesh and brought it close to Lin Yiqian's mouth.

    Lin Yiqian blankly observed Gu Nianshen's seemingly natural gesture. He seemed so calm as if he had not realized that he was feeding her at all.

    She could not help but smile as she opened her mouth to be fed.

    "I think Xiaoyu is very adorable. I like him a lot," she said whilst chewing.

    Then, she carefully examined Gu Nianshen's face.

    "I don't think he's adorable." He seemed annoyed.

    Gu Nianshen brought another piece of lobster flesh close to Lin Yiqian's mouth. By now, Lin Yiqian had already forgotten how much she had eaten. After taking the final bite, she looked down at the container in Gu Nianshen's hand to find that it had already been emptied.

    "You've fed all of it to me. Didn't you want to eat?"

    Gu Nianshen looked down at the container and pretended to look annoyed. "You've eaten so much. Are you a pig?"

    "You are the one who fed me."

    "That's your reward." Gu Nianshen handed the container to Lin Yiqian before turning around and walking out the door.

    "Should I thank you then, Mr. Gu?" Lin Yiqian called out loudly as she tried to stop herself from laughing.

    "Hurry up and come to bed. I'm sleepy," Gu Nianshen ordered without turning around to look at her.

    "Oh."

    For the sake of the lobsters, she would allow him to behave with such arrogance this time.

    ***

    "You are all having dinner at grandmother's tonight. Why wasn't I invited?

    "Did Mother tell you not to invite me?"

    Lin Yiqian had just finished taking a shower and was about to walk out of her room when she heard Gu Nianjia's voice.

    It sounded like Gu Nianjia was demanding an answer from Gu Nianshen.

    Lin Yiqian's immediate thought was that Gu Nianshen would be heading to the Song household for dinner tonight.

    As she thought of this, she heard Gu Nianshen's voice. "She doesn't know that you've returned. Should I tell her that you're skipping school again?"

    Lin Yiqian's hand dropped from the doorknob.

    'Hehe... She said we're all going to grandmother's for dinner...'

    'All!'

    Lin Yiqian smiled as she leaned against the wall and stared into space.

    Only when her feet began to feel numb did she open the door and walk out. She then trailed her hand along the wall until she reached the room across from hers.

    When she pushed the door open, she noticed that the lights were still switched on. However, Gu Nianshen was not in the living area.

    Lin Yiqian continued to walk into the bedroom.

    "I want to see your proposal when I arrive at the office tomorrow," Gu Nianshen said into the phone as he sat on the bed.

    Lin Yiqian remained silent whilst lying down on the other side of the bed.

    Seeing that Lin Yiqian had arrived, Gu Nianshen proceeded to summarize the conversation before hastily ending the call. He then turned the phone on silent mode and placed it on the bedside table before switching the lights off.

    Then, he inched closer to Lin Yiqian and circled his arms around Lin Yiqian's waist.

    However, Lin Yiqian suddenly moved slightly away to the other side of the bed to avoid his touch.

    It felt as if she had done so intentionally.

    Gu Nianshen frowned as he looked at Lin Yiqian's head from behind. Unsure if he had sensed things wrongly, he reached out to give it another try.
