486 Could My Brother Have Been Kidnapped?

    Lin Yiqian and Song Changlin rarely spoke when they were together. In more accurate terms, Song Changlin never said much to her. In the past, she would be the one carrying the conversation while he barely responded.

    However, whenever she felt sad or if something bad happened to her, he would always approach her. Even so, he would rarely say much.

    Most of the time, he would just sit beside her and look at her while she stared into space.

    'Changlin, why don't you talk?'

    'I don't know what to say to make you smile.'

    'Give me a red envelope then. Whenever I feel sad, I would smile when I received a red envelope.'

    After all these years, Song Changlin would still occasionally send her a red envelope.

    Coincidentally, he would send her those red packets during times when she was either feeling very down or very happy.

    After accepting the red envelope, they would chat just like how they did tonight. The conversations would usually be very casual and end after a short while. In fact, sometimes they barely even talked.

    "Mommy." Lin Yiqian had leaned her head against the windowpane and was almost falling asleep when Xiaoyu suddenly called out to her.

    "Why aren't you asleep yet?" Lin Yiqian frowned as she became wide awake.

    The little fellow had sat upright and was holding onto the edge of his favorite duvet whilst looking at her with his droopy eyes.

    He had fallen asleep earlier but was now awake.

    "Do you need to pee?" Lin Yiqian hurriedly walked over.

    Xiaoyu would normally sleep soundly throughout the night unless he needed to drink water or to pee.

    With a pout, Xiaoyu shook his head before getting out of the bed in an agile manner. He then ran out of the room, still clinging onto his duvet.

    "Xiaoyu, what's the matter with you?" Lin Yiqian ran after him as she called out.

    The little fellow ran to the center of the living room before scanning around, wide-eyed. Clearly, he was looking for something.

    After not being able to find what he was looking for, he turned to look at Lin Yiqian. "Where is Daddy?"

    It must have been a dream...

    Lin Yiqian sniffed before walking over to pick Xiaoyu up into her arms. "Come on. Mommy will sleep right next to you." She patted him on the head as she spoke.

    ***

    "Sister-in-law, my brother has not been home at all last night."

    "Do you think he might have been kidnapped?"

    "My brother is very naive. Would he have been tricked?"

    As Xiaoyu had slept on Lin Yiqian's arm for the entire night, she took some time to recover from the numbness.

    When she picked up her phone, she saw over ten WeChat messages from Gu Nianjia.

    They were all about her brother.

    Lin Yiqian chuckled. People who were dumb would normally think of others as being dumb, while people who were naive would think of others as being naive.

    Who else could possibly be more naive than the little coward?

    Without replying, Lin Yiqian locked her phone and stood up to get changed.

    As Changlin had spent the night in the same building, they might bump into each other in the morning when everyone left home for work. Therefore, Lin Yiqian could only leave her apartment using her identity as Catwoman.

    Fortunately, each floor of the building belonged to a single household. Therefore, it was unlikely that she would bump into many people. Otherwise, she might become surrounded by a crowd and forced to take pictures.

    Even so, she still put on a sufficient disguise. On the inside, she wore Bai Se's white T-shirt, coupled with pink workout pants and a long-sleeved jacket on the outside. On her head stood a pink beach hat. As soon as she entered the lift, she stayed close to the wall and looked down at her phone.

    If one did not take a close look, one would not be able to see her face clearly.

    Ding.

    Just as the lift went one floor lower, it stopped. Lin Yiqian thanked herself for preparing ahead.

    Indeed, they were about to bump into each other!

    When the door opened, Lin Yiqian kept her head lowered and merely batted an eyelid at the familiar man's figure who entered the lift.

    He was wearing the familiar-looking black shirt and matching black pants that gave off a slightly melancholic vibe shielded beneath his mysteriousness.
