Lin Yiqian raised her head and shouted loudly, “Aunt Yao, is your store still open?”
Aunt Yao did not turn around as she answered, “Yes, it will be open for as long as I’m alive.”
Lin Yiqian wondered if Aunt Yao had intended to convey something more extreme in nature. Her words made Lin Yiqian feel somewhat pressured.
Lin Yiqian covered her mouth and nodded. “Alright. I’ll come around to pick up the jersey when I’m free.”
Without stepping away, Lin Yiqian observed as Aunt Yao got into a small white car. She was about to look away when Gu Nianjia’s voice suddenly came from behind her.
“Lin Yiqian, what did you say to the old woman?”
Lin Yiqian was suprised that Gu Nianjia had not yet been driven away by her brother. Gu Nianjia still had the guts to question Lin Yiqian after what she had done to her own brother.
“She had yelled at both you and your brother. Naturally, I had to yell at her in return,” Lin Yiqian said with an innocent expression.
Lin Yiqian was implying that she was being a good sister-in-law.
“I don’t believe you.” Gu Nianjia rolled her eyes. Despite her words, Gu Nianjia had actually stopped being snippy.
Right then, Gu Nianshen had also walked out of the airport. He approached them with heavy footsteps.
“Brother…” Gu Nianjia said gently.
Gu Nianshen was trying his best to control his temper and not ask Gu Nianjia to get lost.
Without even responding to Gu Nianjia, he walked past her and Lin Yiqian.
“Gu Nianshen!” Lin Yiqian called out.
He stopped walking.
‘Xiaoyu wants a father…’
‘Wait until he’s older. He needs to go to school and he needs your company…’
Lin Yiqian was doing this for Xiaoyu.
She finally mustered the courage to speak up. “I did not arrange for a car to pick me up. Why don’t you give me a ride home?”
Before Gu Nianshen could even react, Gu Nianjia immediately approached him and said softly next to his ear, “Brother, let me tell you this. Please don’t fall for this woman and don’t go easy on her.”
Gu Nianjia said as she grabbed Gu Nianshen to the side of the road. “Remember the message I sent you the other day. Our youngest uncle, he’s…” She continued with a softer voice.
When Gu Nianshen heard the words ‘youngest uncle’, he immediately frowned.
There was suddenly a chilly silence.
Gu Nianjia sensed that something was amiss as she stopped talking. However, it was too late.
“Get a car for yourself,” Gu Nianshen said to Gu Nianjia.
He started walking in bigger strides toward his car.
When Lin Yiqian saw that he had opened the door for her, she immediately dragged her suitcase over. As if she had suddenly recalled something, she turned around to face Gu Nianjia. “Use your phone to get a ride. The driver ought to arrive very soon.”
Without waiting for Gu Nianjia’s response, Lin Yiqian continued to walk forward.
Once Lin Yiqian had entered the car and closed the door, the engine was started and the car soon sped away.
Gu Nianjia could not calm herself down. She immediately took her phone out and sent Gu Nianshen a voice message. “Why are you upset at me? I’m not the one who made our youngest uncle return. If you do this to me, I’ll be on our youngest uncle’s side instead. I’ll help him with winning Lin Yiqian over so that you’ll be embarrassed instead!”
Gu Nianjia was in a fit of anger and could not stop herself from expressing her thoughts.
As soon as the message was sent, she kept her phone away and began to look around. There seemed to be only privately owned cars around.
Where would she find a taxi?
Gu Nianjia was still feeling lost when she suddenly heard a familiar man’s voice from behind her. “I advise you to recall the message you just sent. You won’t be able to do so after two minutes.”
