Gu Nian wanted to rush up and cover Lin Nantian’s mouth, but it was too late. Lin Nantian, who came to rest, finished talking in a second or two.

According to Luo Xiu’s current position, he should be able to hear every word clearly.

Unwilling to give up, Gu Nian turned around stiffly.

Luo Xiu seemed to come back to his senses, slightly adjusted his silver-rimmed glasses, smiled gently at Gu Nian, then turned and went to the kitchen.

Gu Nian: “…”

She was going to kill Lin Nantian now, so don’t let anyone stop her.

During these few seconds of Gu Nian’s stagnation, Lin Nantian finally realized that the “little star who was being raised” in her mouth had just passed by them.

Lin Nantian was silent for a few seconds, cleared her throat, and sounded like a mosquito with guilt: “Don’t say anything else, um, you have a good mental quality and are quite dedicated.”

“Respect your karma.”

Gu Nian couldn’t have helped grinding her teeth even if she was a fairy.

Lin Nantian’s eyes widened in shock: “Are you scolding me? You actually did it for a foster Xiao Ming——hmmmmhh!”

Gu Nian covered her mouth up without hesitation before she committed another oral offense.

After reassuring Lin Nantian without leaving her room to speak, Gu Nian turned around to make sure that Luo Xiu hadn’t come out of the kitchen yet.

Then she turned back and lowered her voice: “You’re stupid, he’s Luo Xiu!”

“Hmmm?” Lin Nantian showed a blank look, apparently asking “Which Luo Xiu?”


Gu Nian didn’t speak, just looked at her blankly.

The stalemate lasted for ten seconds.

Lin Nantian suddenly opened her eyes wide: “?!”

Gu Nian pulled the corner of her mouth, showing a cold smile: “That’s right, it’s the Luo Xiu you finally remembered now.”

Lin Nantian turned her head with blank eyes.

Gu Nian: “Didn’t I tell you that he terminated the contract with his previous company? The company must have kicked him out of the artist’s apartment, and he hasn’t found a new rental house yet, so he’s staying here temporarily.”

Returning to her senses, Lin Nantian raised her hand and pulled down Gu Nian’s hand, “You, you, you finally realized your dream and brought your son into your household registration book?”

“…” Gu Nian paused.

Hearing son, this title which she herself didn’t seem to have used for a long time, she felt a little guilty for no reason.

At this time, Lin Nantian finally sorted out the cause and effect of her almost being silenced from the moment she entered the door to now, she clasped her hands together and bowed again and again: “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I really didn’t remember the name Luo Xiu – I don’t follow stars or pay attention to the entertainment industry at all. I don’t even watch variety shows, you know. I misunderstood, I’m really sorry.”

“Okay.” Gu Nian pulled her hand down angrily, and muttered softly, “What’s the use of apologizing to me, come in and talk about it.”


Guiltily, Lin Nantian lifted the big and small bags she brought, and walked around the opaque screen in front of the entrance.

When Gu Nian accompanied Lin Nantian to put the bags in the living room, she just caught up with Luo Xiu coming out of the kitchen with a white dinner plate.

Gu Nian resisted the embarrassment just now, and stepped forward to ask: “Is there anything else I can take?”

“This is the last one. You can come over to eat directly after you wash your hands.”

“Then… Thank you, Chef Luo Da.”

Luo Xiu smiled faintly: “It is my honor to serve the birthday star.”

In front of the big background board of Lin Nantian just behind her, Luo Xiu didn’t mention a word about the matter just now, let alone taking the opportunity to tease her.

Both Gu Nian and Lin Nantian’s embarrassment eased a lot, and Gu Nian looked at Luo Xiu gratefully.

“Ah, by the way,” Luo Xiu remembered something, stopped and turned back, “Can you do me a favor?”

Gu Nian immediately asked, “What’s the matter, tell me?”

Luo Xiu gestured to the plate in his hand, helplessly, then said with a smile: “It’s not convenient for me to untie the apron. I just tried it in the kitchen, and it seems that I accidentally tied a knot.”

Gu Nian: “I’ll do it.”

Luo Xiu washed his hands and went into the kitchen directly after returning in the evening. The white shirt and suit trousers on his body had not been changed, and the belt pinched his lean waist, while the gray apron tie hooked the waistline and was tied behind him.

Gu Nian approached and lowered her head to untie the apron strings.

There was a stalemate for a few seconds.

Gu Nian: …It is indeed a tight knot.

Lin Nantian stood in the living room blankly.

A few meters away, two figures, one tall and one short, were almost too close to each other. The little girl standing behind had a stiff face, struggling with the knot in her hand seriously, completely unaware that she and the person in front of her were already very close. Or how close and how intimate they were.

Not to mention the opposite sex, even if it was the same sex, Lin Nantian had known Gu Nian for so many years, and she had never seen Gu Nian get close to anyone so unguardedly.

And the person being approached…

Lin Nantian moved her eyes consciously, and then connected with a pair of brown eyes.

As if aware that she was observing them, the man nodded slightly at her with a gentle smile on his face, but it made Lin Nantian feel a little alienated.

But that bit of alienation disappeared in an instant when he lowered his eyes and seemed to look at the intimate overlapping shadows cast on the ground by him and the person behind him.

Lin Nantian felt an inexplicable subtle feeling in her heart.

Even if she didn’t pursue stars at all, Lin Nantian had to admit that the little star named Luo Xiu in front of her was really as Gu Nian said at the beginning, he was born with a star face that you couldn’t pick out any flaws in.

Broad shoulders, narrow waist and long legs, his figure was also the David model described by Gu Nian. But such a person had been stuck in the 180th tier for 2 years without a name?

Moreover, why did she always feel that this person looked familiar? She seemed… Where had she met him?

When Lin Nantian felt more and more weird, Gu Nian over there finally ended her deadly struggle with the apron.

“Okay!” Gu Nian heaved a sigh of relief and stood up, “Next time I’ll tie it for you, it’s too difficult for you to tie it yourself.”


Luo Xiu responded gently.

When the man walked to the dining room with the plate, Lin Nantian finally came back to her senses, walked quickly to Gu Nian, and tugged at the corner of her clothes: “What’s your situation?”

“What’s the situation?” Gu Nian turned around in a daze.

“You and your precious son! How do you get along like a husband and wife every day!”

Gu Nian choked on this title again and turned back in a low voice: “Don’t call him that…in case he hears you.”

Lin Nantian was silent.

The two looked at each other.

Lin Nantian: “There’s something wrong with you.”

Gu Nian: “?”

Lin Nantian: “Tell me honestly, has your mother’s love gone bad?”

Gu Nian: “…”

Lin Nantian: “…”

Gu Nian: “I haven’t.”

Lin Nantian: “You swear.”

Gu Nian: “Swear it right away.”

Lin Nantian: “I swear that if you lied just now, Luo Xiu will never be red for the rest of his life-“

Gu Nian: “Don’t!”

Gu Nian pressed Lin Nantian down, it was too dangerous, she could not let Lin Nantian finish this sentence.

Lin Nantian looked at her with complicated eyes.

Gu Nian withdrew her hand: “Don’t keep saying such vicious curses.”

Lin Nantian: “Oh, woman.”

Gu Nian pretended not to see, “Well, I’m going to wash my hands, hurry up, or the food will be cold.”


Gu Nian was shocked when she returned to the dining table. She originally thought that even if Luo Xiu knew how to cook, it should be at an average level.

But the table in front of her…

“I didn’t know that Ms. Lin would come over, so I only bought the ingredients for western food.” Luo Xiu looked at Lin Nantian who was sitting diagonally opposite, and said in a gentle voice, “Gu Nian is used to eating this, but I don’t know Miss Lin’s taste?”

Lin Nantian put down the hand towel and was amazed at the appearance of the western food in front of her.

Gu Nian tugged at Lin Nantian’s trousers under the table, Lin Nantian recovered and nodded quickly: “I’m not picky like Gu Nian, it’s fine.”

Gu Nian paused.

She sneaked a glance at Lin Nantian, then turned to Luo Xiu who was sitting opposite her: “I’m not a picky eater, she is lying to you.”

Luo Xiu half-cast his eyes with a knife and fork in his hand and said with a smile: “In your steak, there are no small carrots in the side dishes.”


Gu Nian looked down at her own plate, then at Lin Nantian’s side, and sure enough, there was the same big plate and a brightly colored small plate next to it. But her side was missing the finger-length baby carrots.

Gu Nian was stunned for two seconds, then looked up: “How do you know that I don’t eat carrots, I don’t seem to have told you?”

Luo Xiu raised his jaw and said with a smile: “Before, in the cafeteria of the “You Demon” crew, the carrots in all the meals, no matter raw or familiar, you will wrinkle your nose and pick it out, and put them aside in disgust.”

“Ah, am I that obvious?”

As soon as Gu Nian finished saying that she was not a picky eater, she was exposed. So, she blushed and went to get a water glass, drinking water to cover up her embarrassment.

The action of Gu Nian putting down the water glass here reminded Luo Xiu, so he took off the napkin on his lap and stood up: “I almost forgot the red wine I prepared for you, I will go to the kitchen to get it.”

Gu Nian turned around quickly: “Your stomach. No, you can’t drink!”

Luo Xiu passed by her, rubbing the top of the girl’s head as if it was the most natural thing to do: “Don’t worry, I will only drink water. Today is your birthday, let your friend accompany you for a drink.”

“Ah, that’s good.”

Gu Nian breathed a sigh of relief and turned back.

Not long after, Luo Xiu returned to the table with the red wine covered with a silk cloth and picked up two red wine glasses which were placed upside down.

Before he could tilt the bottle, Gu Nian had already got up to take it from him and turned back with a serious expression: “I can’t let you come to pour the wine, you have been busy all night.”

Luo Xiu: “I don’t mind.”

“That won’t work, I also should have something to do,” Gu Nian gestured down the chair, “Sit back quickly.”

Luo Xiu smiled softly and indulged: “Okay.”


Lin Nantian sat beside them, as if she was in a corner forgotten by the world. She looked at this and then that blankly, feeling more complicated.

She had a bad premonition that her best friend was about to be taken away by someone.


It was clearly stated at the beginning that they would only drink one glass.

Gu Nian fell onto the sofa in a daze, looking at the room swimming in front of her and the beer cans piled up on the coffee table in the living room, thinking this way with the last remaining rationality.

“Aigoo… Your drinking capacity has dropped too much, right?”

Lin Nantian didn’t know when she slipped under the sofa, shaking the empty soda can in her hand, she curled her lips in disgust.

“Do you think I’m you, with so much free time every day…” The girl lying on the sofa closed her eyes, not sure if she was talking in her sleep or replying.

Lin Nantian pushed her: “Is it really that bad?”

Gu Nian didn’t move.

Lin Nantian put down the can in dissatisfaction, “You’ve become a dish, too good.”


Lin Nantian stood up from below the sofa, bent down and pinched the blushing cheek of the girl on the sofa: “Hey, Gu Nian, don’t sleep here.”

Gu Nian still didn’t move and fell asleep completely.

Lin Nantian lowered her head and sighed dejectedly: “Falling asleep as soon as you say, go back to your room before you sleep if you have the ability, this woman who can’t handle alcohol.”

“…” Despite complaining, Lin Nantian bent down and tried to support Gu Nian off the sofa and tried to pick her up and send her upstairs.

When Luo Xiu cleaned up the last food waste and returned to the dining room, he saw Lin Nantian supporting Gu Nian, staggering up from the sofa.

Luo Xiu turned and walked over.

“Leave it to me.”


Lin Nantian only had time to hear the voice above her head, when Gu Nian’s arm, which was originally carried by her on her shoulder, was suddenly moved away, as she was taken over lightly.

Lin Nantian raised her head in a daze, only to see the man in front of her bend down, then hug the little girl whose figure had shrunk into his arms.

Without saying a word, he turned around and walked up the stairs.

Lin Nantian stayed in place for a few seconds, until the back was about to go upstairs, she suddenly came back to her senses, and hurriedly followed: “Wait… I’ll take her up too!”

“…” After sending Gu Nian back to the bedroom, Luo Xiu closed the door and came out. Lin Nantian checked the lock carefully, and then turned around knocking her dizzy head.

Luo Xiu asked softly, “Miss Lin, are you resting here tonight, or should I find someone to see you off?”

“No,” Lin Nantian lowered her head and waved her hands, “I told my driver and they should, It should be here, I’ll just go out.”

“Okay, I’ll take Miss Lin downstairs.”

“Thank you…”

Gu Nian was completely drunk, and Lin Nantian was not much better. On the way out of the villa area, she almost took an S-shaped route.

Luo Xiu followed her four or five meters away to avoid any accidents.

After waiting outside the villa area, the driver who seemed to have been waiting for a long time in front of the car parked on the road came up to meet them: “Miss Lin? Why are you drinking so much?”

Luo Xiu worried about Gu Nian staying at home alone drunk, so after confirming Lin Nantian and the driver knew each other well, he said goodbye and was about to leave: “Ms. Lin, go slowly, I won’t send you anymore.”
