Chapter 541: Why Must You Carry Me?
When the group of people saw Gu Nianshen carrying Lin Yiqian, they stopped walking simultaneously.
Both Lin Yiqian and Gu Nianshen’s faces froze when they saw the others.
As Grandmother Song and Song Changwen were from the older generation, they felt an indescribable awkwardness from what they had observed. Very unnaturally, they looked away from Gu Nianshen and Lin Yiqian.
Grandmother Song and Song Changwen both seemed very unamused.
If they had lived in ancient times, they would have yelled at Gu Nianshen and Lin Yiqian for being inappropriate.
However, Lin Yiqian took all of this in and could not help but feel a little pleased with herself. There was a glimmer of slyness in her eyes as she stood beneath the darkened sky. “I told you I can walk on my own. Why must you carry me?” She shifted her gaze to Gu Nianshen’s face.
While speaking, she pressed on Gu Nianshen’s chest with one hand. However, her other hand was locked tightly around his neck.
Clearly, she had mixed feelings between refusing and accepting Gu Nianshen’s behavior.
After several half-hearted attempts at pushing him away, Lin Yiqian gave up before lightly hammering Gu Nianshen’s shoulders with her fists. “See what you’ve done. Grandmother and Mother have both seen us now. You’re so annoying.”
‘Is she being petty?’ Gu Nianshen frowned at Lin Yiqian as he thought.
More importantly, she was clearly doing it on purpose. It was so pretenseful that Gu Nianshen felt the urge to bite her right away.
Could she not have made it more genuine and believable?
He would have been able to cooperate in a more natural way if that were the case. However, her acting was so terrible that he would only make himself appear childish if he played along.
However, Gu Nianshen did not have a choice. If Lin Yiqian wanted to fool around, he needed to cooperate with her.
While Gu Nianshen thought about it, he began to smile affectionately. “Isn’t it great that they saw us? They can save more by eating less for dinner.”
Gu Nianshen lowered his head. He only had eyes for Lin Yiqian.
‘I can’t bear the sight of this any longer. I’d sooner choke to death.’ Grandmother Song thought.
‘I refuse to watch this. There’s no way you two are having dinner here tonight.’ Song Changwen thought.
Although Grandmother Song and Song Changwen were both visibly annoyed, there was no reason for them to object to what Gu Nianshen and Lin Yiqian were doing as they were lawfully wedded to each other.
Right then, Xi Xia had also come out of the house. Coincidentally, she saw how Gu Nianshen was looking at Lin Yiqian with an affectionate smile.
There was a gentle glimmer in his eyes beneath the warm, golden streetlight.
Xi Xia inhaled sharply as tears instantly filled her eyes.
Seeing how Gu Nianshen had no intention of letting go of Lin Yiqian, Grandmother Song decided to turn away.
“By the looks of things, they are probably not going to have dinner. Let’s go in and eat.” Grandmother Song snorted coldly before turning to face Song Changwen.
“It would be a waste of food if they ate anyway.” Song Changwen nodded along while she reached for Grandmother Song’s arm.
When they turned around, they were stunned to find Xi Xia standing in front of them.
While they both stopped walking, they noticed tears in Xi Xia’s eyes. However, neither of them could find the words to console her.
Right then, Song Jinhao, Changjun’s son, walked up to Xi Xia and reached for her arm. “Sister Xiaxia, let’s stop looking at them. Let’s go inside and eat.”
Song Jinhao was two years older than Song Feifei and was also studying in his fourth year at university.
Like Song Feifei, he was an arrogant person who enjoyed spending time with Xi Xia from the time since they were kids.
However, Xi Xia would not budge when Song Jinhao gently pulled her arm. “Xiaxia, let’s go,” Song Changwen finally said.
Although Song Changwen’s heart went out to Xi Xia, there was nothing she could do about it.
In the end, Song Jinhao and Song Changwen half-dragged and half-convinced Xi Xia to enter the house.
Once everyone had gone inside, Lin Yiqian attempted to release Gu Nianshen’s neck so that she could get back onto the ground. However, Gu Nianshen would not allow her to do so as he hugged her even more tightly with both hands.
