Lin Yiqian knew that Xiaoyu was taken aback by the environment here. Although he too lived in a bungalow overseas, it was a very normal house in America without a large courtyard or a fountain.
Moreover, they did not have a view of the boundless sea.
“Yeah.” Lin Yiqian smiled as she nodded.
“Mommy, are we going to stay here from now on?” Lin Xiaoyu ran over to Lin Yiqian and hugged her legs.
He clearly liked the place a lot.
Lin Yiqian’s smile froze as she turned to look at Gu Nianshen who had walked much further ahead of them.
He seemed to be somewhat annoyed, having brought Xiaoyu home.
Lin Yiqian tightened her grip around Xiaoyu’s fingers. In the end, she did not utter a single word.
By now, most of the servants would have already gone to bed. Aunt Zhou was the only person who was still waiting up for them while she watched something on the television.
“Nianshen, you’re back. How is Xi Xia?”
“Her surgery is over.”
Just as Lin Yiqian entered the room, she could overhear Aunt Zhou asking Gu Nianshen about Xi Xia’s condition.
She could tell that Xi Xia held an important position in the Gu and Song family. Perhaps, the servants had already regarded Xi Xia as the most important woman in this household.
To them, Lin Yiqian’s arrival was unexpected. In fact, even she thought the same way.
As Lin Yiqian looked at Gu Nianshen’s face, she could see that he had replied to Aunt Zhou without the slightest hint of emotion.
Aunt Zhou seemed like she was about to ask something. However, when she saw Lin Yiqian, she immediately stopped herself. “Little Yi, you came back with Nianshen.”
Lin Yiqian nodded as she continued to walk forward with Xiaoyu.
As soon as Aunt Zhou noticed Xiaoyu, an expression of shock appeared on her face. “This child is…” She murmured as she stared at him.
As if suddenly realizing something, she quickly glanced at Lin Yiqian’s face before turning to face Gu Nianshen.
“We found him.” Gu Nianshen responded coldly.
Then, he raised his hand to rub his temples.
“Oh.” Aunt Zhou nodded. She turned to face Lin Xiaoyu with her surprised expression still apparent on her face.
Lin Yiqian had never noticed who Xiaoyu resembled. When she was in America, some of her neighbors said he looked like her. However, she could not quite see it herself.
The day Bai Se met Gu Nianshen in person, he told her that Xiaoyu resembled him. In spite of that, she could not tell which features of Xiaoyu’s resembled Gu Nianshen.
However, from Aunt Zhou’s reaction, Lin Yiqian had to admit that Xiaoyu really did look like him.
If that were the case, she would not be able to keep his identity a secret for long if Xiaoyu stayed here for too long.
She had to get Bai Se to take Xiaoyu away as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian felt nervous and worried that Aunt Zhou might ask more questions. “Call her Nanny Zhou, quickly now,” she said, immediately.
As she spoke, she pointed at Aunt Zhou.
Since Lin Yiqian spoke in Chinese, Xiaoyu did the same. “Nanny Zhou.”
Aunt Zhou remained lost in thought for a moment before she chuckled and nodded. “Hello there.”
After Gu Nianshen had rested for a while, he stood up and began to walk upstairs. As he did so, he pointed at Xiaoyu while he spoke to Aunt Zhou. “Get him a room. Give him a shower and make sure he sleeps.”
However, Lin Yiqian was worried that Aunt Zhou might ask Xiaoyu questions.
“Let me take him for a shower. He can sleep with me tonight,” Lin Yiqian said, hurriedly.
As she spoke, she immediately dragged Xiaoyu upstairs.
Gu Nianshen stopped walking as he frowned at Lin Yiqian who was approaching him.
‘Is this fool going to sleep with the little jerk tonight?’
