Chapter 29: I Don’t Want Scars On Your Body
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Mo Huiling’s anger was pushed to its peak as she hung up the phone immediately.
As Gu Jingze listened to the disengaged tone through his phone, he took a moment to focus. When he saw that the doctor had arrived, he followed him into Lin Che’s ward.
The doctor had already examined Lin Che’s injury. The wound on her thigh was recovering well and she was going to be able to walk again very soon.
Gu Jingze watched from the side. Within the time that he went out to answer a call, she had already completely cleaned out the food. Not only that, she had even started a discussion with the doctor about how the room looked so good.
She was truly heartless and ungrateful.
Gu Jingze looked at the scar on her thigh and said to the doctor, “Can the scar on her thigh be removed?”
The doctor rushed to speak to Gu Jingze, respectfully and cautiously, “That depends on the individual’s body constitution. Seeing as Madam doesn’t usually have any scars, she doesn’t seem to be the kind to have scars. It’s possible that she will recover, but… with a scar this deep, it’s likely to leave a bit of a scar.”
While stitching up the wound, he had especially used a method of stitching that would not leave a scar. But now, the wound still looked jagged.
Gu Jingze did not want any scars to be left on her body. As he looked at her wound, he frowned deeply. “I hope there won’t be a single scar on my wife’s body. Get your best doctor to come up with a solution.”
When the doctor heard this, his face paled and he quickly nodded repeatedly.
When Lin Che saw the doctor leave, she lifted her head to say to Gu Jingze, “It looks like it’ll definitely leave a slight scar. But it’s alright. If I’m filming I can just cover it up with foundation.”
But Gu Jingze gazed at her deeply and said, “No. If this hospital can’t do it, I’ll look for the best doctor on earth to give you the necessary treatment. I will definitely not leave you with a single scar.”
As Lin Che looked at his somber expression, she felt a slight warmth in her heart. She smiled at him and said, “Why? Will you dislike me for the scars on my body? Seriously, a wife who shares her husband’s hardships must never be cast aside. Did you hear that? No matter how ugly I get, you cannot cast me aside.”
Gu Jingze was speechless for some time. He looked at Lin Che and said, “Relax. I won’t cast you aside. I just don’t want to see scars on your body.”
He did not want to see her get hurt especially because of him.
As he looked at Lin Che dressed in a striped hospital gown, he recalled her white, soft and flawless skin. He immediately felt uneasy realizing that it could become marred by such a large scar all because of him.
Lin Che moved slightly as she said, looking at him, “Or is it because you feel guilty when you look at it?”
Gu Jingze glared at her. “What nonsense are you saying?”
However, he indeed felt a little guilty.
Lin Che said, “If you really feel guilty, then treat me a little better from now on. It’s good enough if you don’t throw me out for no reason.”
Gu Jingze froze. He recalled the day when he left her at the entrance.
His anger had been triggered only because of her overly foul mouth.
From the moment he was born, there had never been a single woman like her who was audacious enough to speak to him like this.
But right now, as he gazed deeply at Lin Che, he merely said softly, “Okay.”
Lin Che raised her head in surprise. As she looked at Gu Jingze, she went into a momentary trance. What did he just say?
Gu Jingze shifted his gaze, lowered his head, and properly arranged the medicine that the doctor had given. He then started to pour water for her to take the medicine.
On the first day, Lin Che’s wound was still hurting slightly but because the hospital had already used the best medicine on her, she did not feel that terrible.
That night, when it was about time, Lin Che felt a little dazed and was about to fall asleep. She looked at Gu Jingze through her narrowed eyes and asked, “What are you going to do tonight?”
Gu Jingze said, “You don’t need to worry about me. I’ll just sit here.”
Lin Che said, “Why don’t you go back and sleep?”
“No need. I’ll sit here and watch over you.” When Gu Jingze thought of leaving her here alone, he just felt that she would be too lonely.
After all, she was not like other people who were surrounded by their family members. She only had him as her husband.
Lin Che said, “It’s really not necessary… maybe you can go outside and find a place to sleep.”
Gu Jingze said, “No, there are so many apparatus here at night and you also need someone to watch over you. I’ll just stay here.”
“Ah… then…” Lin Che was a bit touched. She looked at Gu Jingze and then looked again at her own bed. The bed in the VIP ward was much bigger than the usual bed.
She pondered for a bit and decisively patted her own bed. “Why don’t you just come up and sleep here? The bed is big enough too.”
Gu Jingze’s gaze flashed stealthily as he looked at the place that she had patted.
However, a slight feeling of secret delight flitted by in his heart.
As a matter of fact, he did not feel repulsed at all.
Seeing as he neither rejected her suggestion nor agreed to it, Lin Che said again, “Why? Are you afraid that I’ll jump you? In that case, I’ll put the pillow in the middle. The bed is so big. It’s completely possible for us to sleep separately.”
Gu Jingze’s brow furrowed slightly. “Alright, alright. Then, we’ll do just that. Let’s rest early.”
When she saw that he had really agreed, Lin Che quickly shifted to the side to give him space.
Gu Jingze tidied up for a bit before getting onto the bed.
They slept on opposite sides with a pillow between them.
However, Lin Che had overestimated herself. Although she lay there like this, she kept feeling like she could sense the breathing of the man beside her despite the fact that he seemed to have fallen asleep long ago and was staying completely still.
Fortunately, the effect of the medication caused her to finally fall into a deep sleep quickly.
Gu Jingze sensed that the person beside him was no longer tossing and turning and her breathing had gradually quieted down. He knew that she was probably already asleep.
Heaving a sigh, he flipped to his other side and tried to fall asleep too.
However, just when he was about to fall asleep, a leg suddenly landed harshly on his body.
Gu Jingze’s eyes darkened.
This Lin Che, was her thigh not hurting anymore?
Her injury did not improve her bad sleeping posture.
To not touch her wound, he grabbed her slender thigh and carefully pushed it aside.
But then, a soft arm landed on him again.
Gu Jingze thought that unless a knife was put between them, nothing else placed there would be able to obstruct this hyperactive woman.
He carefully held her arm, turned his head, and gently placed it back.
But then, he came face to face with her quiet, asleep face.
Her red lips were bright and moist. Right now, it seemed like this hardy woman was already vastly different from the woman who was about to die yesterday. She had rapidly regained her vitality.
Then, she arched forward.
Gu Jingze paused. He sensed that her lips were already brushing his face.
If he moved a little, he would be able to touch her soft, red lips.
The moistness of her lips sent a slight shiver through his body and a jolt of electricity seemed to pass through him. Staring at her mouth, he suddenly felt his mouth go dry.
However, she once again began to move randomly. Her small lips directly brushed against his lips. A wave of dry heat made Gu Jingze furrow his brow deeply.
“Lin Che, you’re playing with fire!” In a threatening tone, he spat out a warning through pursed lips, “I dare you to try moving again!”
However, Lin Che obviously did not hear his hoarse voice at all.
