Chapter 506: Professor Zhang On House Visit
Aunt Zhou looked behind her before moving closer to Gu Nianshen and Lin Yiqian with a glimmer in her eyes. “Nianjia brought a friend home. At first, they said they were going out for dinner. However, her friend realized he had lost his wallet. Since they both don’t have money, they came back.
“The man looks rather handsome too.” Aunt Zhou chuckled devilishly.
When Lin Yiqian heard that Gu Nianjia had brought a male friend home, she immediately thought of Zhang Jingyu.
She then looked down and examined the shoes. It was a pair of very intricately designed leather shoes.
If she were not mistaken, it was probably a custom-made design from England.
Right then, Zhang Jingyu’s mild-tempered face appeared in her mind, ascertaining that the shoes indeed resembled his style.
Whilst Lin Yiqian pondered, Gu Nianjia’s voice could be heard. “Brother, you’re home.”
Almost immediately, Gu Nianjia skipped into the living room excitedly.
She was wearing a comfortable set of pink clothes with her hair tied into a ponytail. It was a very refreshingly young look.
However, as soon as she saw Lin Yiqian, the smile on her face disappeared. Gu Nianjia made a tutting sound at Lin Yiqian.
“What’s going on between you two?” Gu Nianshen asked curiously.
Had Gu Nianjia not sworn she would treat Lin Yiqian well from now on because she was her sister-in-law?
Why was she now behaving as if Lin Yiqian was her sworn enemy?
Lin Yiqian shrugged and pouted as if to say she had no idea. Perhaps, it also indicated that she did not care at all.
After changing into her house slippers, Lin Yiqian began walking further into the house.
When she walked past Gu Nianjia, the latter stuck her tongue out at Lin Yiqian before lifting her head proudly to look at Gu Nianshen. “I refuse to be her friend. She would only embarrass me.”
Gu Nianshen ignored Gu Nianjia as he caught up with Lin Yiqian and hugged her from behind. “Do you know what a traitor is now?”
“Are you even my biological brother?” Gu Nianjia immediately refuted as she realized that Gu Nianshen was calling her a traitor.
As soon as she asked the question, Aunt Zhou yelled at her from the back. “Hey, child, be careful with your words. How could Gu Nianshen not be your biological brother?”
Whilst speaking, Aunt Zhou walked up to Gu Nianjia and was staring at her intensely.
Gu Nianjia had never seen Aunt Zhou behaving in such a strict manner. Ever since Gu Nianjia came here from her grandmother’s place, Aunt Zhou had been looking after her and was always unusually kind to her.
After all these years, Aunt Zhou had never once raised her voice at Gu Nianshen.
However, her sudden change in attitude made Gu Nianjia feel slightly afraid. “Aunt Zhou, I was just arguing with him. Why did you have to overreact?”
“Don’t go too far.” Aunt Zhou’s frown deepened. However, an affectionate look had returned to her eyes as her voice softened.
“Alright, let’s eat.” Aunt Zhou reached for Gu Nianjia’s hand and held on tightly before dragging her into the dining room.
Gu Nianjia could sense that Aunt Zhou might perhaps be angry at her. However, she wondered if she was just being overly sensitive.
A man wearing a black-and-white checkered shirt was sitting on the couch in the living room when everyone walked inside. With his spectacles hanging loosely over his nose, he instantly gave one the impression that he worked in academia.
He seemed ever so polite and noble.
When Zhang Jingyu saw Lin Yiqian and Gu Nianshen, he stood up and nodded at them politely.
To be more accurate, he was nodding at Lin Yiqian in particular.
“Professor Zhang,” Lin Yiqian greeted politely in return.
Meanwhile, Gu Nianshen walked up to Zhang Jingyu and frowned as he said, “Zhang Jingyu, are you on a house visit?”
Lin Yiqian felt speechless.
