Chapter 469: Don’t Be Afraid, I’m Home Now
Lin Yiqian stood across Song Changwen with the coffee table between them. “Mother, please have a seat. I’ll get changed upstairs.”
“Why have you returned home this late?” Song Changwen suddenly asked just as Lin Yiqian turned around.
There was a frown on Song Changwen’s face.
“It’s been hectic in the office,” Lin Yiqian answered obediently.
“You don’t know how to prioritize.” Song Changwen uttered. “When will Gu Nianshen be home?”
‘Ehh…’ Lin Yiqian was surprised that Gu Nianshen had not returned home yet.
She looked up to the second floor before returning her gaze to Song Changwen who was still glaring at her. “I’ll call and ask him immediately.”
As she spoke, Lin Yiqian retrieved her phone from her purse before dialing Gu Nianshen’s number.
After making the call, Lin Yiqian placed the phone next to her ears. When the two unintentionally met each other’s gaze, Lin Yiqian nodded and smiled sheepishly.
‘Why is she blaming me just because her son is home late? What have I done? Can’t she call and ask him on her own?’ Lin Yiqian thought.
Meanwhile, Song Changwen kept her chin lifted and maintained a blank expression.
Although the call had gone through, Gu Nianshen did not pick up. After a beeping sound was heard, which indicated that the recipient was busy, Lin Yiqian put her phone down and looked at Song Changwen helplessly. “Nianshen might be busy. He’s not picking up.”
Song Changwen continued to stare at Lin Yiqian without saying a word.
“Little Yi, hurry up and get changed. I’ll heat up your food for you,” Aunt Zhou said with a chuckle.
Aunt Zhou really was Lin Yiqian’s savior.
Lin Yiqian gave Aunt Zhou a grateful look before heading upstairs.
“Look at how nice this child is,” Aunt Zhou said after getting closer to Song Changwen.
“You think everyone is nice.” Song Changwen glanced at Lin Yiqian disapprovingly.
“How is she not nice? She looks pretty too. If she and Gu Nianshen were to have a child, the child would definitely look gorgeous.”
“Let’s talk about this after the child has been born.” Song Changwen’s facial expression softened.
“That will happen sooner or later, won’t it?” Aunt Zhou asked.
“Why did you call me?”
Lin Yiqian noticed that she had missed several calls from Gu Nianshen, which prompted him to send her a text on WeChat instead.
“Your mother came to ask me about her son’s whereabouts.”
“Don’t be afraid. I’m home now.”
He then proceeded to send Lin Yiqian an emoticon of a face being pinched.
Although Lin Yiqian found it somewhat immature, she could not help but feel it was a sweet gesture as she responded with an emoticon of a kicking foot.
When Gu Nianshen entered the house, he was still looking down at his phone. Seeing Lin Yiqian’s message, his smile widened such that both rows of his teeth were now bare.
Failing to notice that someone was standing right in front of him, Gu Nianshen continued to walk inside.
Finally, Song Changwen decided that enough was enough as she poked him on the forehead with her index finger. “Look at you. You are no different from a fool.”
The smile on Gu Nianshen’s face instantly disappeared. “Chief Song, why did you suddenly show up?”
Locking his phone screen and putting it away, Gu Nianshen walked past Song Changwen and sat down on the couch.
“How would I know that my son is living such a good life if I haven’t come over?” Song Changwen said in a huff as she sat down beside him.
She sounded a little jealous.
“Aren’t you happy that your son is doing well?”
Song Changwen rolled her eyes at Gu Nianshen’s question as she ignored him.
