Chapter 43: Clothes Tangled Up

Then, Lin Che saw the movement of reporters.
“Reporters are coming. No, I have to leave now. I was surrounded by them just now,” Lin Che had little experience with reporters. She still did not know how to handle them. She did not know what to say and was afraid of saying the wrong things that might affect her career.
Gu Jingze looked and said, “We can hide inside. Let’s go.”
As he said this, he glanced over at his men to go over and take a look.
Under the discrete protection of his guards, the two of them went deeper in.
Lin Che was relieved that no reporters followed them, “Luckily, we lost them. I wouldn’t know what to do otherwise.”
Gu Jingze looked at her silently and thought that if the hotel not been under the Gu family’s name and surrounded by his people, she could never have escaped. It was not that the reporters did not follow her. They were stopped.
Soon, they found a room in the hotel to rest.
Gu Jingze said, “I’ve asked for the staff to bring some food. You should have some.”
“That’s great, Gu Jingze. You’re too good,” she raised her head towards Gu Jingze, her face filled with gratitude.
Gu Jingze knew that she was putting on an act, but he was secretly satisfied.
“Since you know how good I am, then treat me better,” he replied and pushed a plate in front of her.
Sitting in a wheelchair was inconvenient. When Gu Jingze pushed the plate in front of her, she looked at him with greater happiness.
She did not hate this man all the time.
Lin Che ate a few pieces of food while Gu Jingze’s phone rang. He went over to pick it up.
On the other end of the line, the security guard said, “Sir, Lin Youcai wanted to look for you just now. We stopped him.”
Expressionless, Gu Jingze glanced over to Lin Che, “Hm.”
When he put down the phone, he saw Lin Che fidgeting around and seemingly tugging at her clothes. Gu Jingze asked, “What’s wrong?”
Lin Che struggled to untie the ribbon at the back. Defeated, she grumbled, “I think my back is all tangled up.”
Gu Jingze shook his head and went over to her, “Okay, seeing as you are dumb and clumsy, let me give you a hand.”
Lin Che gave in, “Alright, you’re the smart one.”
He said, “Look at how silly you are.”
He took a closer look to find that the ribbon was stuck in the wheelchair. No wonder it was hard for her.
He picked out the ribbon and said, “Nobody asked you to wear a dress so difficult to wear.”
Lin Che felt his hands moving around, occasionally touching her back and making it hard to control herself.
Pretending not to feel anything, she snorted, “It’s an engagement. I can’t not wear something formal. Also, I am your wife now. Surely, I have to give you face. See this dress? My company let me borrow it. It’s branded.”
Gu Jingze’s face blackened, “If you have no clothes, I could have bought them for you. Why borrow from your company?”
“That would be troublesome.”
“Is it troublesome? Or is it because you didn’t want to tell me you were going to the engagement party of the guy you like?” Gu Jingze said as his grip tightened. The more he thought about how determined she was to attend the party, the more uncomfortable he felt.
Lin Che felt a pain in her back. She turned angrily to him and said, “Hey, if you don’t want to help me, don’t. You’re hurting me.”
“I’m sorry. I didn’t realize,” He too was confused by his own thoughts. He kept his head down and continued undoing the ribbon with more care.
Lin Che said hesitantly, “Hey, why is your head down? Is your illness acting up again?”
She remembered him telling her that if he got too close to women, he would develop several allergic reactions including vomiting and rashes.
Gu Jingze said, “How could it be?”
“I’m not afraid of touching you and getting sick.”
“I would never embarrass myself in front of you,” Gu Jingze continued, “Speaking of embarrassment, I have seen a lot of it on your side.”
Lin Che glared at Gu Jingze, “The pleasure is all mine!”
She had been drugged, disgraced, and made drunk by him.
He really had seen everything.
Lin Che thought that Mo Huiling was definitely nothing like that.
No wonder he loved Mo Huiling and not her. Women should keep their distance from men. After all, women need to upkeep their image. Otherwise, which man would ever love them?
Especially Gu Jingze. Given his status, he must have come across plenty of elegant ladies.
Gu Jingze looked seriously at her zipper. It was so entangled that it was going to be hard to unzip.
As he worked on the zipper intensely, he could not help but notice with his head bent down that he was facing her fair and tender neck. The fabric below moved around while light shone softly at the front.
He remembered her telling him that her chest was shaped like two peaches.
Looking at it, indeed it was.
Although the blue fabric was covering most of it, the top half of her chest was still obviously showing and slightly moving.
From that angle, he could see a large part of her bare back. Her skin was soft and smooth. It seemed to be poreless except for a layer of extremely fine hair on the surface like a baby’s skin..
His throat felt unexpectedly hot. He shifted his eyes away but could not help feeling bothered.
However, he seemed to grow more anxious as his hands fumbled more.
He was frustrated that he just could not detangle it.
Forcefully, he shouted, “SHIT! It won’t budge!”
With one forceful pull, the dress let out a rip sound.
It was torn.
Lin Che could not believe what just happened. She held her dress and silently lifted her head at Gu Jingze. She was annoyed and shouted. She felt the air-conditioner blowing at her bare skin. It made her uncomfortable, “What have you done, Gu Jingze? How is this helping?”
Gu Jingze was also vexed. His ears turned red as he did not know what to do.
A large part of the dress fell off, revealing parts of her body. However, it made her look even more attractive. Her body seemed to shine through the light, showing her fine baby-like hair. Nobody could resist her.
His heart jolted as if something manipulated it.
She turned her head to him, eyes staring like daggers into Gu Jingze’s, “The dress is ruined. Do you have any idea how much it cost?”
Gu Jingze replied angrily, “I will pay you back.”
“Hmph, you’d better!”
Gu Jingze glared at her and picked up his phone.
“Get me a ladies’ formal gown, one with my wife’s measurements,” Gu Jingze said as he looked at Lin Che who was staring at him begrudgingly with her big eyes and holding onto her clothes. Her chest was already big, but with her hands held against it, it looked even bigger.
Gu Jingze’s eyes seemed to be lost as he looked at her. She frowned and turned away.
Lin Che had no other choice but to wheel herself into the bathroom.
She found a bathrobe and put it on.
