Gu Jingze looked up to see Mo Huiling lying there seductively.
He did not think much of it. After all, they grew up playing together. They were all too familiar with each other.
It was just that Mo Huiling’s chest seemed to be unusually high as she lay there, resembling a hill.
It looked big, but unnatural.
He had not noticed before, but he suddenly thought of Lin Che’s words.
“Fake chests are easy to tell. It will remain standing high even when one lies down.”
When did Mo Huiling do her chest?
He could not recall her mentioning it.
Actually, Gu Jingze was not against women having cosmetic surgery. As long as she liked it, he did not care.
The pursuit of beauty was human nature.
However, he never heard Mo Huiling talk about it.
He grew curious and asked Mo Huiling, “Huiling, when did you have cosmetic surgery?”
Mo Huiling immediately raised her chest, unnaturally looking at it as she touched her chin.
She did have a few places done…
Cosmetic surgery was now so normal, but she definitely did not want Gu Jingze to know.
She secretly went for it. After each time, she took the opportunity to go overseas for awhile and returned after recovering.
A man like Gu Jingze who was too busy with work never noticed such things. Naturally, he never asked questions like that until now…
“I… I didn’t. Why did you suddenly ask?”
Gu Jingze glanced at her and felt like he could not look anymore, “Nothing. Just asking.”
She looked down at her chest and thought that it should look natural. Of course, she went to the most expensive place with the best resources and best doctor. Those C-cups were not cheap.
Not expecting Gu Jingze to be able to tell, she smiled and said, “My body is all natural. I have not done anything to it. You must think that it’s too perfect. That’s why you thought I had surgery, right?”
Gu Jingze smiled as he didn’t know what to say, “Yes, your body is nice.”
Mo Huiling replied, “But of course. I usually pay attention to my body. I do lots of yoga and maintain it well. Everybody thinks my skin is flawless. My body is perfect thanks to my mother who was a beauty. I look like her, so I’m beautiful as well. Don’t you agree that I’m beautiful?”
Gu Jingze looked at her face and smiled, “Yes, you are beautiful.”
However, he looked at her face and thought that it was strange. If she looked like her mother, she should have single eyelids. Her eyes would not be so big and her double eyelids would not be so defined. More importantly, her chin was too sharp. Her mother was a famous round-faced beauty.
But Gu Jingze kept his thoughts to himself. Looking at Mo Huiling, her skin was indeed good, but…
Lin Che’s skin was much fairer and softer.
Somehow, the image of Lin Che’s porcelain skin appeared in his head.
She really was fairer than most other women.
Perhaps, because she was too white so her face did not look especially outstanding. However, looking at her was like looking at a porcelain doll. She looked delicate.
“Jingze, I’m talking to you. What are you thinking about?” Mo Huiling shouted and sat up unhappily.
Gu Jingze got up and said, “Nothing. I was thinking that you didn’t have to put in so much effort. I like you not because you’re thin, but because regardless of how you look, you will always be beautiful.”
He still remembered how when they were young, she stumbled over to him in her little princess dress and said to him, Brother Jingze, nobody wants to play with you. I will play with you.
From that moment, he told himself that he had to treat her well.
It was just that looking at Mo Huiling now, he could not help but feel that Lin Che was right. She must have done something to her chest.
However, Mo Huiling not only refused to admit it. She even lied to him.
Gu Jingze understood that everyone had their own beauty ideals. Perhaps she did not tell him so that she could believe her body was all natural and a God’s gift, but Gu Jingze would not have minded any of it.
He was only concerned with the fact that Mo Huiling would actually lie to him.
However, he did not expose her.
He believed that she had her own reasons.
He smiled and said nothing else. He finished setting up the fireplace but because of the weather, it did not burn much. They could only enjoy the feeling of it.
The two of them sat on the sofa. Gu Jingze turned on the television and took the remote. Just as he wanted to switch to a movie, he saw the news play out on screen.
“After Gu Jingyu hinted at a relationship, there were no further comments from the crew. The management has also made it harder to pry. Gu Jingyu has never been rumored with another female actress, so everyone is anticipating this relationship with optimism.”
The screen flashed an image of Gu Jingyu and Lin Che together.
Mo Huiling immediately recognized Gu Jingyu.
“What’s going on? Why is Jingyu fooling around with Lin Che?”
Those words make Gu Jingze’s face turn completely black.
Mo Huiling saw his face and thought that he was angry. She put more weight in her tone, “This Lin Che is too unscrupulous. How can she get together with your brother? How shameless.”
Gu Jingze said, “This has nothing to do with Lin Che.”
Mo Huiling listened and said quietly, “It takes two hands to clap. How could it have nothing to do with her?”
“I believe Lin Che is not like this,” he said adamantly.
Mo Huiling snorted, “You believe her? That is so naïve of you. I have seen too many uncultured girls like her. They would do anything for money. What’s more is that she’s in the entertainment industry.”
“Enough!” Gu Jingze got up from his seat.
Mo Huiling was taken aback.
Immediately, she followed Gu Jingze and got up angrily, holding back her tears as she shouted, “You yelled at me, Gu Jingze? You yelled at me for this woman?”
Gu Jingyu paused and looked at Mo Huiling, “It’s not because of her. Jingyu is also in the entertainment industry and he’s also not that kind of person. There must be a reason behind this whole matter.”
Gu Jingze got up and decided not to stay any longer. He took his coat and said, “I’m going to settle this matter.”
“You’re going now…” Mo Huiling said unhappily, “You said you would keep me company.”
Gu Jingze replied, “Huiling, this news will cause a lot of trouble if people see it. It’s best I hurry and take care of it.”
Mo Huiling gritted her teeth. He was right. She stomped her foot on the ground, “I don’t care. You must make it up to me. I hardly get to be with you and now, you’re leaving.”
Gu Jingze sighed. He was in no mood to entertain her. He smiled patronizingly and said, “Okay, I definitely will make it up to you.”
Mo Huiling forced a smile but deep down, all she wanted to do was crush that annoying Lin Che to death.
