Chapter 484: Sister-in-law, Could You Please Come Back
Throughout the years, Lin Yiqian had never stopped worrying over Gu Nianshen’s overbearing grandfather and mother. If either of them found out about Xiaoyu’s identity, she would not be able to keep him by her side.
“Mommy, can I eat another piece of bread?”
Lin Yiqian was still weeping when she suddenly heard Xiaoyu’s gentle voice from behind.
Still affected by her sad emotions, Lin Yiqian was taken aback by Xiaoyu’s question.
Had he not already eaten a lot of chicken wings and ice-cream? Why did he still want to eat?
Frantically wiping her tears away, Lin Yiqian stood up and turned around to look at Xiaoyu. She found him leaning against the door as he gazed at her with a pleading look in his eyes. Lin Yiqian could not help but burst into laughter. After taking another napkin from Bai Se, she wiped her tears and snot away.
“Let’s go and eat.” Lin Yiqian nodded cheerfully at Xiaoyu.
She had managed to feel better without receiving any words of consolation.
Xiaoyu was the reason why she was able to come this far. Regardless of how tired or depressed she felt, all her troubles and worries would fade away once she returned home and saw Xiaoyu’s adorable face.
He was her main source of motivation.
“This little fellow only knows how to eat.” Bai Se chuckled.
He then shook his head before looking at Lin Yqiian. “Are you really not going back tonight?”
“Do I look like I’m joking around?” Lin Yiqian shrugged.
“Alright then. You should get some rest. I’m going to discuss the event proposal with the team in the study.” Bai Se nodded.
After Lin Yiqian watched Bai Se walking into the study, she began heading into the bedroom.
Within the short span of time, Xiaoyu had already eaten half of the bun. “You’ll turn into a little pig if you keep eating like this.” Lin Yiqian frowned.
“Would I be like Peggy and George?” Xiaoyu asked naively as he looked up at Lin Yiqian.
He then took another bite of the bun as he waited for Lin Yiqian’s reply.
“Nevermind. Forget I said anything.”
Lin Yiqian stopped speaking and walked over to the window. She was able to draw the curtains together when she saw the boundless ocean before her.
Right then, her phone suddenly started ringing. It was the notification sound of WeChat messages being received one after another.
She subconsciously hoped that it would be Gu Nianshen. However, when she got to her phone, the screen showed that the messages were from Gu Nianjia. “Sister-in-law, where are you? Could you please come back?”
Gu Nianjia added a few emoticons at the end, including some that implied that she was crying and apologizing.
“Silly child.” Lin Yiqian chuckled.
She actually felt a little guilty for using Gu Nianjia as an excuse to avenge Xiaoyu.
After reading all of Gu Nianjia’s messages, Lin Yiqian decided not to reply. Instead, she put her phone away and sighed as she sat down on the windowsill.
Lin Yiqian stared straight ahead at the boundless ocean before looking up at the star-filled sky.
‘If it rains, would you hold the umbrella for me?’
Gu Nianshen’s gentleness would always draw her into her child-like fantasies. It was like a dream that she could never wake up from.
Suddenly, her phone rang again. Lin Yiqian lazily gazed down at her phone, thinking that it was another message from Gu Nianjia.
However, it was not Gu Nianjia. Instead, the message came from Song Changlin.
There were no words attached to the red envelope sent to her.
Once Lin Yiqian entered WeChat and opened the red envelope, she received sixty-six dollars and sixty-six cents.
“Why did you give me so much in the red packet? Did something good happen to you?” Lin Yiqian chuckled as she responded with a message.
Song Changlin instantly replied. “I remember you telling me that a red packet would make you smile when you are feeling sad.”
