443 Why Did These People Not Appreciate His Wife’s Hard Work?

    Soon after, Jiang Yuexiang appeared in person. When she saw Gu Nianshen, she froze for a moment before greeting him with a smile. "Nianshen, you're here."

    Gu Nianshen kept a straight face without acknowledging Jiang Yuexiang.

    This woman took his father-in-law away from his wife and was also Lin Yiqian's most hated person. Gu Nianshen refused to speak to her.

    If Lin Yiqian found out, she would definitely be mad.

    Realizing that Gu Nianshen was ignoring her, Jiang Yuexiang laughed awkwardly. "You must not have eaten. I just made lunch. Where's Little Yi?"

    "She didn't come," Lin Tianwan answered ahead of time as he knew Gu Nianshen would not reply to Jiang Yuexiang.

    "Oh." Jiang Yuexiang nodded as she pondered. "Nianshen, come in and join us for a meal." She added, a little tired.

    Before receiving a response from Gu Nianshen, Jiang Yuexiang continued to speak, "The plums have ripened from the tree Little Yi planted. I have plucked a bucket full of them earlier and cleaned them up. They're sweet and juicy."

    'Right, it's the plum season.' Gu Nianshen's eyes lit up. As it was an obvious reaction, Lin Tianwan noticed it and knew that Gu Nianshen was interested.

    "That plum tree was planted by Little Yi when she was eight years old. In fact, it was taken from our old house. Even after a decade, it still produces a tree full of plums. The plums are much sweeter than the ones sold outside too," Lin Tianwan chipped in.

    "That's right. We can't finish them every year and would always have to give some away to the neighbors," Jiang Yuexiang added.

    Why did these people not appreciate his wife's hard work?

    They had actually given the fruits away to the neighbors.

    When Gu Nianshen heard that Jiang Yuexiang gave the plums Lin Yiqian had planted every year to other people, he felt agitated.

    Finally, he could not stand it any longer. "Pick out all the ripe ones and send them to my house for Lin Yiqian to eat."

    "Alright." Lin Tian nodded happily as he had finally managed to get Gu Nianshen's attention. "You should bring some home today," he added after a while.

    Gu Nianshen murmured an 'okay' under his breath.

    However, he did not move and thus not showing that he was stepping into the courtyard. Lin Tianwan and Jiang Yuexiang both seemed confused.

    "Why aren't you getting them?" Gu Nianshen frowned.

    He was actually waiting for them to bring the plums out.

    Lin Tianwan hurriedly nodded. "Oh, okay. I'll go right away."

    Although he and Jiang Xiangyue had entered the courtyard together, he was the only person who had returned with a basketful of plums.

    "Nianshen, take all these. Little Yi likes them very much." Lin Tianwan approached Gu Nianshen with a smile.

    Gu Nianshen took the basket and entered his car without uttering a single word. He then placed the basket on the passenger seat before turning the engine on.

    Ignoring Lin Tianwan who was waving at him on the outside, Gu Nianshen rolled up the windows and began driving past him.

    After arriving at Ming Ji's Deli, he stopped the car and looked over at the basket of plums on the passenger seat. The ones on top were perhaps washed since their colors seemed unusually bright.

    Gu Nianshen picked one up and placed it in front of his nose for a sniff. From the scent alone, he could sense the sweetness within.

    'Song Changlin, I have planted these plums on my own. They're very sweet. Are you really not having any?

    'Why do you always remain quiet? You're such a creep. If you won't eat this sweet plum, I'll eat it all on my own.'

    Whenever this season arrived, Gu Nianshen would feel jealous because Lin Yiqian would bring Song Changlin several plums every day.

    Back then, Song Changlin did not know everyone very well and thus had ignored most people. Lin Yiqian was the only one who ran after him with plums so that he would eat them.
