480 Can We Get Along Fine Together?

    Dressed in a white shirt, the man had the top two buttons of his shirt open. Compared to the other men around him who were dressed to the teeth with proper ties around their collar, he seemed much more natural. Although he was not the tallest among them, he was the most outstanding one.

    As he stepped into the crowd, his presence could immediately be felt.

    All eyes were on him, while his eyes were focused on the woman in a red dress.

    The closer he got, the faster he walked.

    Everyone, including Song Changwen, was now studying Gu Nianshen's facial expression as they speculated on how he would resolve the fight between his wife and mother.

    On the other hand, Lin Yiqian merely glanced at him for a split second.

    She did not have any hope in him at all.

    It was as if she had forgotten all about their interactions for the past few days. Gu Nianshen felt so nervous that he wanted to walk right up to her and take her by her hand.

    However, Song Changwen took a step forward and stopped him. "Gu Nianshen, did you hear what we have said earlier?"

    Gu Nianshen halted as he looked down calmly at Song Changwen. "Mother, you will never have a change of daughter-in-law in this life, unless you have a second son."

    He sounded extremely calm and there was not a hint of doubt in his voice.

    Without waiting for Song Changwen to respond, he walked past her and began walking toward Lin Yiqian. As he wished, he could now hold her hand and as he did so, they began walking away from the crowd.

    Tall and strong as he was, he was now holding the hand of the girl he liked. Each step he took was one of certainty and determination.

    "Nianshen." Xi Xia's eyes filled with tears as she observed Gu Nianshen and Lin Yiqian walking away.

    Her Nianshen.

    ***

    With one hand being held by Gu Nianshen, Lin Yiqian lifted her dress slightly with her other hand as they walked. Once they exited from the resort, Lin Yiqian began struggling to free herself from Gu Nianshen's grip.

    Gu Nianshen stopped walking as he looked down at Lin Yiqian. The glimmer from the streetlight was reflected in her eyes. To him, it felt as if all warmth had been drained from those cold eyes.

    It made him feel even more unsettled and nervous.

    "Lin Yiqian, I'm sorry." Gu Nianshen pulled Lin Yiqian into his arms and held her tightly.

    There was a nasal quality about his tone of voice, which also sounded rather apologetic.

    However, the only thought in Lin Yiqian's mind was the image of Xiaoyu in tears. She could not shake the image of him trembling in one corner of the car.

    Her entire body hurt from the thought alone.

    Lin Yiqian raised her hands and pushed them against Gu Nianshen's chest while shaking her head. "No, it's not your fault. It's my fault."

    She knew that she was wrong right from the start. She should not have been so possessive. In fact, she should not have even placed any hope in him at all.

    The harder Lin Yiqian tried to push Gu Nianshen away, the tighter Gu Nianshen hugged her. "Lin Yiqian, can we get along fine together? Please?"

    Gu Nianshen was feeling far too insecure to let her go.

    "Let go of me."

    Realizing that she was not strong enough to push him away, Lin Yiqian began to scream. "Gu Nianshen, I said let go of me!"

    Gu Nianshen could feel Lin Yiqian was on the verge of having an emotional breakdown.

    Stunned, he looked into Lin Yiqian's tearful eyes.

    A look of pain appeared on his face.

    Lin Yiqian took the opportunity to push him away as she chuckled sarcastically. "Have you forgotten that you only married me because you needed to acquire the position of Mega's CEO? On the other hand, I have only agreed to get married to you because my family went bankrupt. Could you really have fallen in love with me after all?"
