Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
As Lin Yiqian was still driving, her gaze did not linger upon Xi Xia’s face.
However, she could sense that Xi Xia had an ulterior motive in bringing up the topic about the child.
Was Xi Xia hinting something? Or did she find out about something?
Lin Yiqian wondered if she was being overly sensitive.
Since Xi Xia was looking at her and she was still driving, she could not multi-task and try to think about different things. Therefore, she did not continue to guess. Instead, she replied to Xi Xia in a natural tone, “Do you mean the little jerk? He’s rather adorable. Perhaps Gu Nianshen is influenced by him if only just a little.”
If they went back five years in time, it would have meant that Lin Yiqian had stolen Xi Xia’s boyfriend’s sperm.
Now that they were talking about this in front of the two parties involved, Lin Yiqian felt very guilty.
‘The little jerk?’ When Gu Nianshen heard how Lin Yiqian addressed Lin Xiaoyu, he raised his brows and looked at her.
Although he did not want to admit it, he did feel like he was being insulted when he heard what Lin Yiqian had said.
However, there was nothing he could do about it.
She was Lin Yiqian, after all. Gu Nianshen would have no choice but to be insulted along with the little jerk.
However, this seemed to be the first time he heard her calling that kid a little jerk. She used to call him Xiaoyu.
Could the kid have done something to make her upset?
Gu Nianshen decided that he would ask around at home when nobody was paying attention.
“Little jerk?” Xi Xia was shocked to hear how Lin Yiqian had addressed the child.
She then turned around to look at Gu Nianshen.
Meanwhile, Gu Nianshen’s gaze was locked onto Lin Yiqian and he had not noticed Xi Xia looking at him.
Xi Xia tightened her grip around her seatbelt before looking away sadly.
Lin Yiqian began to laugh. “Haha! Gu Nianshen has been calling him that all this while. It’s just a nickname. The kid’s actual name is Xiaoyu.”
Lin Yiqian made it sound as if she was not very familiar with Xiaoyu.
A smile appeared on Xi Xia’s face yet again. “The child seems rather adorable. His eyes look like Gu Nianshen’s.”
When Gu Nianshen heard Xi Xia’s words, he looked shocked.
“Did the doctor say when you need to return for a check-up?” He quickly changed the topic to talk about Xi Xia’s physical health.
“In two days’ time. I think there shouldn’t be any issues,” Xi Xia answered before looking away from Gu Nianshen to Lin Yiqian.
There was a smile in her eyes.
On the way back, they did not converse much. When it began to feel a little awkward, Lin Yiqian turned on the radio.
Once they arrived at the Song family’s house, Lin Yiqian thought about stopping in front of the main entrance. However, she also considered the fact that Xi Xia was not physically well, and that the distance between the main entrance and the house was not exactly that far. To avoid making other people overthink, she decided to drive through the courtyard to get to the house.
After Xi Xia got out of the car, she stood by the car and looked at Gu Nianshen. “Nianshen, aren’t you and Little Yi going to eat dinner with us before leaving?”
“No.” Gu Nianshen shook his head without any hesitation.
He sounded very nonchalant, almost as if he really did not even contemplate the decision.
Lin Yiqian was secretly happy about this.
She could not help but feel that she was a mean person herself.
Xi Xia pursed her lips before gently closing the door of the car.
Without pausing, she turned around and walked into the house.
“Are you really not going in for dinner?” Lin Yiqian waited for Xi Xia to enter the house before she turned around to make fun of Gu Nianshen. However, when she turned her head around, Gu Nianshen had already opened the door and got out of the car.
As her gaze followed after him, she saw him moving to her side of the car.
“Get out. I’ll drive.” Gu Nianshen opened the door and looked down at Lin Yiqian.
“Aren’t you tired? I don’t want you to drive.” Lin Yiqian snorted.
“Stop messing around,” Gu Nianshen frowned as he said in an affectionate tone. He then bent his upper body at the waist to reach inside the car and unbuckled Lin Yiqian’s seatbelt.
Then, he slipped his hands under her thighs and carried her out of the car.
Right then, several people appeared from the house. Grandmother Song stood in front while Song Changwen followed right after her.
