Chapter 26: Sorry, I refuse!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Lin Yiqian did not care about what Li Nanmu had said. She was thinking about how she could convince Gu Nianshen to let go of Xiaoyu. All of a sudden, Gu Nianshen bent forward to place Xiaoyu on the ground.
Lin Yiqian looked at Gu Nianshen curiously.
Gu Nianshen did not return her gaze. Instead, he proceeded to walk past her.
Xiaoyu was about to call out to Gu Nianshen when Lin Yiqian swiftly pulled him with one hand and covered his mouth with the other. She wished the child would stop attracting Gu Nianshen’s attention as doing so would only cause more trouble.
As Gu Nianshen gradually moved away, Lin Yiqian was still in a state of shock. She had forgotten that her hand was still covering Lin Xiaoyu’s mouth. When Xiaoyu started making sounds like he was being suffocated, she finally realized what she was doing and let go of her hand.
Lin Yiqian was about to call out Xiaoyu’s name when she realized that Qi Wuyue and Li Nanmu were still around. She immediately changed her words. “Little boy, that mister is called Gu Nianshen. You should call him Mister Gu.”
Lin Yiqian’s heart pounded as she slowly patted Xiaoyu’s head.
Li Nanmu walked over and smiled as he bent down to face Xiaoyu. “That’s right, young fellow. He is someone who cares a lot about his reputation.”
Xiaoyu nodded obediently. When he turned to look in the direction where Gu Nianshen had walked off earlier, he noticed that Gu Nianshen had already disappeared. The realization caused Xiaoyu to pout.
Was he… disappointed?
Lin Yiqian was somewhat confused by Lin Xiaoyu’s reaction.
Xiaoyu then lifted his head to look at Li Nanmu and Qi Wuyue. “Do you know Mister Gu?”
They replied with a smile, “Yes, we do.”
Hearing this, Lin Xiaoyu’s eyes lit up. He continued asking, “Does he have a girlfriend?”
Although Xiaoyu was very soft-spoken, he enunciated each English word with great precision.
Li Nanmu shook his head without any hesitation. “No. He is single.”
Qi Wuyue nodded in agreement. “That’s right. He is single.”
As they spoke, the men simultaneously looked at Lin Yiqian. Lin Yiqian could tell immediately what they were up to.
‘These two shameless bastards.’ She thought. ‘Was Gu Nianshen single?’
If Gu Nianshen were single, how did Lin Yiqian acquire the title of being his wife? Could she have done it on her own?
Qi Wuyue and Li Nanmu had no idea that Catwoman was cursing at them in her heart. They were still trying to butter her up. “Catwoman, if you are free tonight, please join us for dinner. Nianshen… I mean Mister Gu and his company would like to work with you.”
Hearing this, Lin Yiqian smiled. “Sorry, I am not interested!”
As soon as she finished her sentence, Lin Yiqian grabbed the child’s hand and started walking away. When she walked past the two men, she even rolled her eyes and gave them the side-eye.
These two bastards had always gossiped behind her back. Now, they were trying to hook her husband up with other women.
‘Intolerable!’ Lin Yiqian thought.
The two men clearly had not expected Catwoman’s direct rejection. They stood still for quite a while before Li Nanmu turned to look at Qi Wuyue. “What did she say?”
Qi Wuyue looked equally annoyed. He repeated Catwoman’s words. “Sorry, I am not interested.”
“Why does this sound so familiar?” Li Nanmu blinked as he tried to recall something.
Qi Wuyue snorted. “These were the exact five words Lin Yiqian had said years ago when she rejected your confession.”
Back then, these two were already known for their families’ wealth. They had been deeply embarrassed when their offer to take a woman out for dinner was mercilessly rejected.
