Chapter 36: Sorry, I Forgot That You Have an Illness
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Lin Che’s mind went blank at that moment. It was only when she got seated in the helicopter that she jolted from her daze.
Lin Che was stunned. As she looked at the massive machine, she could not help but ask, “Why… why are we going to the hospital like this?”
Gu Jingze said from beside her, “It’s too far. This is faster.”
Lin Che looked at him. “Actually, my injury isn’t in need of such urgent attention.”
Gu Jingze looked at her with a perfectly calm expression. “But you must know that I have other things to do tomorrow morning. If we drive there, it will take one hour and coming back will take one hour. By the time we reach home, it will probably be dawn.”
“The helicopter will be there in about ten minutes so be prepared.”
“Alright…” Lin Che looked at Gu Jingze. She thought to herself, This was precisely the way the rich dealt with things. She had to get used to it…
As expected, they landed on the top floor of the hospital about ten minutes later.
Gu Jingze refused to let her move and carried her down first.
He carried her all the way in before putting her down.
While the doctor was examining her, Lin Che felt slightly guilty. The doctor said, “What kind of pain are you feeling?”
“It’s just… hurting faintly.” She thickened her skin, not daring to look at Gu Jingze who was standing to the side. She didn’t want to meet his eyes.
The doctor took a look and said, “Madam Gu, your wound isn’t inflamed and there aren’t any other symptoms either, so the pain may be psychological. Don’t be too stressed. Think of other things. Perhaps, you won’t feel the pain anymore.”
The doctor had no choice either; he could only provide such a diagnosis.
Lin Che nodded her head vigorously. “So that’s why it hurts.”
As Gu Jingze was watching from the side, Lin Che quickly flashed a pandering smile. Gu Jingze’s deep, dark eyes moved meaningfully before he glared at her.
But he still said to the doctor, “To be on the safe side, we’ll still stay here for one night.”
Lin Che could only agree.
The room was still the same kind of intensive care room as before. Gu Jingze had made arrangements at the entrance and just as he had expected, if they had taken the helicopter here and went through the entire ordeal, it would already be early dawn.
Lin Che sat there guiltily. She looked at Gu Jingze’s thin lips pressed tightly into a line. The lines of his jaw also followed suit, clenching tightly. He looked as cold as ice and very difficult to approach.
Against her will, her heart drummed faster in her chest.
When she saw him turn around to look at her coldly, she quickly flashed a toady smile. “It has been hard on you. Go to sleep quickly.”
Gu Jingze glared at her before sitting down.
Lin Che said hurriedly, “Gu Jingze, come over here. I want to talk to you.”
Gu Jingze snorted and sat there unmoving.
Lin Che steeled her mind and came down the bed directly.
But when she went down and her heels hit the ground, her thigh was pulled and she began to hurt as well.
She hissed as she held onto her thigh and nearly fell.
Gu Jingze’s eyes darkened. Tossing everything else aside, he quickly walked over in a few steps. He stretched his arms out under her armpits and carried her directly.
“Lin Che, why did you move recklessly for no reason?!” Gu Jingze was furious. He had been so shocked by her earlier actions that his heart had almost jumped out of his chest.
Lin Che was really hurting. Her brows were furrowed and when the light shone on her, her small face scrunched up slightly.
Gu Jingze held her up and stabilized her. When he turned his head, his lips brushed against her earlobe.
Her soft and tender earlobe even had some fine hairs on it. The fine hairs reflected the light shining on them and looked very cute.
This instantly messed up his thought process and in turn, he frowned and wanted to let go of the wretched woman.
But just as he was about to let her go, Lin Che pulled his arm with both hands. “Gu Jingze, stop being mad,” she said softly and gently. She looked at him with a clear gaze, her expression particularly arousing his protectiveness.
But Gu Jingze’s gaze continued to rest on her ear thoughtfully. As he looked at her rounded, smooth and small ear, he had the crazy urge to suck it for some strange reason.
Had his illness already started developing in the perverse direction?
Why did his whole body heat up from looking at her small ear?
He felt her hand still resting on his arm. The places that she had touched heated up even more, causing him to feel so agitated that he wanted to shrug her off.
“Let go of me, Lin Che.” His expression began to darken even more. Seeing this, Lin Che became more anxious.
“Don’t be angry, Gu Jingze… Hubby, don’t be angry, don’t be angry. When a married couple fights, shouldn’t they eventually reconcile? Don’t be angry anymore.” Lin Che had really put all of her skills to use as she wanted to soften this difficult man.
However, Gu Jingze’s expression did not improve. The initial gloominess on his face was now tinged with some red instead. It looked as if he was extremely angry and it scared Lin Che so much that her voice became slightly weaker. “Hubby… Hubby, don’t be angry. On account of me being so pitiful that I can’t get down from the bed…”
She hugged one of his arms with both her hands. Like a little child, she pouted with her eyes and looked miserable as she shook his arm from side to side.
As Gu Jingze listened to her increasingly gentle voice, he looked down at the arm that she was shaking. If he were to backhandedly grab her hands and push her directly onto the bed at this moment, she would actually fall underneath him.
He violently resisted this impulsion that arose in his chest. But this damn woman… Couldn’t she stay still for a while and not sway around? Her swaying made his eyes all dizzy.
“Lin Che, I said let go of me! Do you not understand?”
Feeling somber, Gu Jingze yelled angrily.
Lin Che took a look at him. Was he really angry now?
Immediately, she loosened both her hands but she lost her balance and instantly fell backward.
Seeing this, Gu Jingze stretched his hand out and wrapped it around her waist.
However, he was pulled down by her momentum. Facing the direction in which she was falling, he fell down together with Lin Che.
Lin Che’s eyes widened. She felt his soft, thin lips, smash heavily on her mouth.
That handsome face enlarged before her eyes, his face flushed slightly red.
Lin Che felt a pain on her chest.
She looked down only to see his chest pressing on hers.
Instantly, her face turned completely red too.
This time, Gu Jingze could clearly feel her breasts on his chest.
However, he looked at Lin Che and immediately rolled to the side and quickly detached himself from her body. His movements were as fast as lightning.
Lin Che’s heart was still thumping without rest because of the sudden close proximity he was in earlier.
Seriously, it was unbelievable. She almost had the urge to kiss him earlier. Was she crazy?
Her mouth was on the verge of moving closer to his.
Was it because she had spent a long time together with him that it was difficult for her to resist the temptation of his beauty?
Indeed, Gu Jingze was very handsome and very sensual. Even the way he fell down earlier was absurdly beautiful. The perky shape of his lips was extremely seductive, but… his heart belonged to someone else.
Lin Che was absolutely not the kind of person to forcibly take away the person someone else liked.
Furthermore, Gu Jingze’s earlier expression was obviously one of disgust.
She suddenly covered her mouth with her hand and remembered that he was allergic to women.
No wonder he kept wanting to push her away just now.
Lin Che hurriedly raised her head. “Oh no, Gu Jingze. I’m sorry. I didn’t do it on purpose earlier. I momentarily forgot that you have an illness. That’s why I pulled you and refused to let go.”
Gu Jingze’s expression darkened, his handsome face lifting slightly. “The occasional touch is nothing.”
“Hm, just…” He looked at her chest. Unable to resist, he glanced at it again.
At once, she very astutely discovered his gaze, captured it, and followed it, lowering her head together with him.
Gu Jingze turned his slightly red face away and avoided her gaze to hide his expression. He said coolly, “The shape of your breasts is not bad. They’re quite perky, so they probably aren’t artificial,” he intentionally said this in an indifferent tone.
“…” What the hell.
