Chapter 13: I’m Afraid That Miss Mo Might Misunderstand
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Mo Huiling stood up arrogantly. Dressed in luxurious clothes from head to toe, she shone brightly. Combined with her haughty expression, she appeared even more superior. “Huh, don’t think that you can truly have Jingze just because you married him. I’ll tell him directly that I don’t like him being with you. I’ll tell him to leave this place and live with me. Even if you’re married, you won’t ever see him again. All of your ulterior motives will be useless!”
How did you become his wife when I am the one he loves?
Although Mo Huiling had a haughty expression on her face, Lin Che could tell that she felt angry and helpless.
Although this woman was distasteful, she was, in fact, a pitiful woman.
Perhaps it was a shortcoming of these wealthy families that marriage was not by choice.
They were all victims; she indeed pitied Mo Huiling.
But if she was so sad, why did she have to hide it? Why couldn’t they fight it out once? As for Mo Huiling, she came to Lin Che instead of kicking up a fuss with Gu Jingze.
Lin Che thought to herself, She did not know that things were so complicated. Otherwise, she would not have agreed easily. Who knew that he still had a girlfriend who loved him so deeply?
Lin Che said directly, “If he ends up living with you, I’ll be happy for the both of you too. You can tell him to do that.”
Mo Huiling truly hated Lin Che. The more she looked at her, the more she disliked her, especially since a person of such lowly status like her was surprisingly Gu Jingze’s wife.
Lin Che was quite beautiful; her skin was white and soft, and she was young. While she looked honest, people like these were the most scheming.
Mo Huiling had to admit that her face was a bit too attractive. She could not be at ease by letting Gu Jingze continue living with Lin Che.
Mo Huiling glared at her fiercely before lifting her head and leaving.
When Gu Jingze returned home that night, the house was extremely quiet. Gu Jingze asked, “Where’s Madam?”
The maid immediately replied, “Madam is in the bedroom.”
Gu Jingze walked towards the bedroom.
He did not expect to see the sight of Lin Che’s completely naked back greeting him when he pushed the doors open…
She was changing…
When the door opened, Lin Che got shocked and she almost jumped up in surprise.
“Ah… Gu Jingze!” She yelled. It would have been alright if she had only shouted, but the problem was that she turned around in surprise…
Now, it was not just her back that he had seen completely.
Two soft lumps of flesh seemed to flash before his eyes, causing him pause.
Lin Che frantically covered her chest and as she looked at the man in front of her, she said weakly, “Gu Jingze, do you know how to knock!?”
Gu Jingze stared at her snowy white skin and her narrow shoulders; they looked pale and tender…
His heart thumped and he shifted his gaze slightly.
Drawing in a breath, he said, “This seems to be my bedroom.”
Lin Che froze. On second thought, this was indeed his house…
But that was not right.
Lin Che said, “Hey, although it’s your house, have you forgotten that we’re married? After marriage, at least half of the house belongs to me. Until we get a divorce, I have a right to live in this house. In other words, this is also my bedroom.”
Gu Jingze turned his head coolly. “It seems that you haven’t forgotten that we’re married. So it’s alright even if you don’t cover up like that.”
Lin Che lowered her head, curious about the chill wafting across her body. She had forgotten to put on her clothes…
She frantically pulled on her clothes and draped them on quickly as she turned around.
However, Gu Jingze had already walked further in as if nothing had happened. He opened the wardrobe, took out a folder, and left quietly.
Lin Che stood there, watching him leave before taking a deep breath. She blinked a few times and thought to herself, This Gu Jingze… Mo Huiling mentioned that she would not permit him to live here, but here he is again.
As Lin Che walked out, she adjusted her clothes uncomfortably.
Gu Jingze was looking down at his documents. As if he had not seen her, he kept his head down.
Lin Che walked over to him. She was unsure about how to approach him. After all, this person had many shortcomings. He might criticize her again if she said a word.
When she was just about to leave, the person who had been looking down at his documents the entire time finally said something.
“What do you have to say?”
Shocked, Lin Che patted her chest as she looked at Gu Jingze. She thought to herself, Why is this person always doing things all of a sudden and putting her at a loss about what to do?
“So you knew I was here. Since you didn’t look at me at all, I thought you didn’t hear me, so I wanted to leave without disturbing you,” Lin Che explained as she walked over to him.
Gu Jingze raised his head to look at her. With his chin resting on one hand and his eyes hazy under the light, he was so charming that he could make anyone’s heart skip a beat.
“I can smell your scent,” he explained.
Lin Che froze.
Her face heated up slightly; did he not know that his words sounded a little intimate?
Gu Jingze looked at the flushed red color on her white cheeks. Perplexed, he said, “Why is your face so red? Why? Are you sick?”
“…” You’re the one who is sick. No, you were sick to begin with. You forgot your medicine again.
Lin Che denied, “My face isn’t red at all.”
Lin Che felt like she had been completely exposed and even taken advantage of.
Lin Che thought to herself, She was really no match for him.Although she considered herself a professional actress, she seemed to behave less professionally than he did from the beginning. He had clearly separated business from personal matters.
She believe that perhaps it was because he had someone he loved that he was able to separate his feelings.
Compared to her, Gu Jingze was truly professional. The fact that he had no reaction to her naked body showed that he did not treat her as a woman at all. He was completely devoted to Mo Huiling.
She could not lose to him , Lin Che thought.
Gu Jingze watched the tiny changes in her expression. He raised his head again and asked, “You didn’t answer me. Do you have something to say to me?”
How did he know that Lin Che had something to say before she even spoke?
Lin Che walked over to him and said, “Nothing much. I just wanted to know why you’re home again.”
Gu Jingze furrowed his brow in confusion. “Can’t I come home?”
Lin Che looked at Gu Jingze’s honest expression. She thought to herself perplexedly, Has Mo Huiling not tell him that she did not want him to live here?
When she saw Gu Jingze wearing a doubtful expression again, Lin Che waved her hands frantically.
She could not get between him and Mo Huiling. Since Mo Huiling had not said anything, she decided it was best Mo Huiling told him herself. Lin Che refused to get herself involved in their affairs.
She shrugged her shoulders and said, “I mean… I think you don’t need to stay here all the time. After all, so many people live separately after marriage. Furthermore, you’re so busy. Staying here all the time isn’t good for you.”
Gu Jingze squinted his eyes at her. “Why?”
“I just think that Miss Mo definitely feels upset about you constantly being with me. It’s better if you don’t live here.”
Gu Jingze’s eyebrows twitched. He looked at her and said, “I thought we agreed previously that this is my house. If I don’t live here, where will I live?”
