434 His Wife Was Far Too Beautiful

    Lin Yiqian put on a new pair of white heels before heading to the bathroom to put on some make-up.

    Since the jerk was in love with her because of her looks, she will charm him with her looks.

    Just as Lin Yiqian took the final step at the bottom of the stairs, Gu Nianshen walked out from the dining room. The two stopped in their tracks at the same time as they turned to look at each other.

    Right then, Aunt Zhou and Gu Nianjia walked out of the dining room as well.

    Normally, Lin Yiqian would wear clothes that brought out her charismatic personality. She rarely wore pink outfits that made her seem much younger than her age.

    All of a sudden, she looked nearly three to four years younger than her actual age and seemed like a young lady who had just entered university.

    Aunt Zhou could not help but offer her a compliment. "Our Little Yi looks very pretty."

    She intentionally raised her voice because Gu Nianshen was there.

    Then, Aunt Zhou gave Gu Nianjia a look who promptly caught the hint. Since Gu Nianjia had just gotten what she wanted from Lin Yiqian, she nodded and played along. "Yeah, my sister-in-law looks exquisitely beautiful today."

    Everyone including Lin Yiqian turned to look at Gu Nianshen.

    "She looks the same to me," Gu Nianshen said after taking a brief glance at Lin Yiqian.

    He then chucked his hands into his pockets before walking toward the main entrance.

    Lin Yiqian gritted her teeth as she watched Gu Nianshen leave. If Aunt Zhou and Gu Nianjia were not around, she would have asked him why did he not pretend to feel this way when they were in bed together the night before.

    Meanwhile, Gu Nianshen smiled uncontrollably after stealing a glance by turning his head around ever so briefly.

    His wife was far too beautiful!

    ***

    With a smile on his face, Gu Nianshen stepped out of his front door. As Qi Shaodong was already waiting outside, he immediately opened the door of the car to the passenger seat in the back when he saw Gu Nianshen.

    Standing with his back straight, Qi Shaodong nodded gently as he waited for Gu Nianshen to get into the car.

    "CEO."

    Gu Nianshen walked closer to the car and was about to get in when his gaze unintentionally lingered upon Qi Shaodong's shirt. "Take off your shirt," Gu Nianshen said as he stopped in his tracks.

    "Why?" Qi Shaodong asked confusedly.

    Was there anything wrong with his shirt?

    "Since when did our company allow employees to wear pink shirts?"

    Qi Shaodong seemed confused.

    When did the company begin implementing a strict color code as part of the dress code?

    Gu Nianshen ignored Qi Shaodong's look of indignation as he stepped into the car.

    Feeling helpless, Qi Shaodong knew that he had no choice but to do as he was told in order to keep his job. "Boss, I'll get changed when we get to the office." Qi Shaodong negotiated weakly as he got into the car.

    He could not possibly enter the office half-naked as it would tarnish the company's reputation.

    Gu Nianshen gave him a look as if giving a silent agreement.

    As they drove out of the courtyard, the car continued to cruise along a stretch of road that seemed to have no end in sight. The surrounding premise all belonged to his family.

    Due to the sunny weather, Gu Nianshen had left the car window open. Resting his face against his palm, and his arm against the windowpane, a single finger curved over his lips. The gentle breeze from the ocean caressed his face like that of a woman's soft hands.

    Gu Nianshen smiled as he unbuttoned two of the top-most buttons on his shirt so that his collarbones were now fully visible.

    He was gently drawing circles over the hickey on his neck with his long fingers.

    "Why is there a child by the road?" Qi Shaodong suddenly asked as he began to slow down the vehicle.

    His thought interrupted, Gu Nianshen now turned his attention to the road ahead and noticed Lin Xiaoyu who was sitting at a junction further down.

    Why was the little jerk here?

    As the car approached Lin Xiaoyu, he seemed to not have noticed its arrival and kept his head lowered.

    "Stop the car," Gu Nianshen ordered.

    Since Qi Shaodong had already begun decelerating the car, he stepped on the brake once the car was close enough.

    Gu Nianshen did not immediately get out of the car. "Little jerk, why are you here?"

    When Lin Xiaoyu heard Gu Nianshen's voice, he turned his head around furiously.

    Gu Nianshen's heart sank when he saw the little fellow's face.

    "Why are you crying?" Gu Nianshen stepped out of the car without hesitating.

    Lin Xiaoyu's face was filled with tears and it was apparent from the redness in his eyes that he had been crying for a long while now.

    As soon as Gu Nianshen approached, Lin Xiaoyu stood up. Only then did Gu Nianshen notice that Xiaoyu's right hand was covered in blood. The front of Xiaoyu's white T-shirt was already stained red by his own blood.

    Gu Nianshen's face turned pale as he took a nervous step toward Xiaoyu to pick him up. "Get the first kit."

    "Okay."

    Qi Shaodong was equally nervous at the sight of the little fellow's heavy loss of blood. Hurriedly, he took the first aid kit out of the car and retrieved a bottle of hemostatic ointment and a single cotton bud.

    Gu Nianshen gently wiped off the blood from Xiaoyu's hand and was finally able to see the wound. Something had made a cut at the center of Xiaoyu's palm, which caused blood to flow out nonstop.

    Carefully, Gu Nianshen began applying the hemostatic ointment on Xiaoyu's hand.

    However, after a long while, the bleeding still did not stop. "Boss, this little fellow's bleeding doesn't look like it's stopping," Qi Shaodong said, panicking.

    Gu Nianshen decided to pour the entire bottle of hemostatic ointment over the wound. However, it was of no use. Gu Nianshen lifted his head and looked at Xiaoyu's chubby face. "Do you have coagulopathy?"
