Gu Jingze soon arrived home.
Qin Hao was already at the door. Upon seeing Gu Jingze return, he said softly, “Sir, it all started with Third Young Master’s Weibo post. Although he did not state clearly, the news speculates that Third Young Master was… was…”
Gu Jingze turned around, “Was what?”
“Was confessing to Madam.”
He had to be joking. That was ridiculous.
Gu Jingze’s face blackened.
His brows creased like crinkled clothes, skin rolled into hills and hills.
Gu Jingze saw that there were many comments below Gu Jingyu’s Weibo post.
“I think they look quite good together after awhile. If they’re together, so be it.”
“This Lin Che looks rather pleasant to the eyes. At least she looks different from the usual famous people. Not bad.”
“As long as Jingyu decided, we approve. Congratulations on being together. Last long.”
Gu Jingze turned off his phone and looked up, his face as dark as a stormy sky. It gave off a vibe so scary that no one dared to look directly at him.
“I thought you guys stopped all news about Third Young Master!”
Qin Hao felt cold sweat on his back, “Sir, we did. It’s just that this is the first time that Third Young Master has announced a relationship, so some tabloids continued.”
“Relationship?” Gu Jingze stared coldly.
Qin Hao knew that he said the wrong thing and immediately said, “Of course, the reporters don’t know that Third Young Master was only joking.”
Gu Jingze raised his hand to silence him.
He pressed his brows and then walked in.
Lin Che did not know what was going on.
She had just got back from the set, mentally and physically drained. She cooked some instant noodles to comfort her broken soul.
She was just done when she heard the door.
Gu Jingze was home.
Lin Che was holding a huge bowl of noodles, looking very happy with herself. She wore a small yellow apron with lace at the sides. It looked cute and it reflected the warm smile on her petite, delicate face.
“Gu Jingze, you’re back,” she smiled as she put down her noodles that were almost burning her fingers. She pressed her fingers to her earlobes to cool down.
Gu Jingze glanced over to the bowl of noodles and said, “I’m hungry too.”
“Oh?” Lin Che saw his expression and said, “Shall I cook you a bowl too?”
“Yes, okay,” he said as he casually put down the coat in his hand and sat down.
Lin Che pouted. How unceremonious.
She returned to the kitchen and picked up the vegetable knife. She sliced some vegetables, ham, and cracked an egg.
Gu Jingze looked at her and thought that there were some heartwarming moments with her.
In a regular household, the husband usually waited at the table while his wife cooked in the kitchen.
An aroma filled the air. Lin Che brought both bowls to the dining table. Gu Jingze looked at them and asked, “Why does your bowl have more noodles and vegetables than mine?”
“…” Lin Che replied, “It’s not that much more.”
Without a warning, Gu Jingze reached over for her bowl and took it, “I’m eating yours.”
“Hey…” Lin Che wanted to stop him but he had already started eating his noodles.
Lin Che could only look down at her fingers, “I ate a bite of those noodles.”
“…” Gu Jingze looked up at her seriously.
Lin Che felt uncomfortable with his stare. She quickly waved her hands and said, “Why? It’s not like I made you eat it. You were picky.”
Gu Jingze reached for her bowl and took a huge mouthful.
“Hey, Gu Jingze, you…”
“All things should be fair between husband and wife, right?” Gu Jingze justified his reasoning.
Lin Che said depressingly, “I’m not mean like you! It’s not like I did it on purpose!”
Gu Jingze lifted his head and snorted.
Lin Che’s eyes moved. She smiled widely and said, “It’s just exchanging saliva. You eat min and I eat yours. There’s no big deal, right?”
“…” Gu Jingze’s face darkened. How could a sentence like that be so warming?
Lin Che continued, “In fact, exchanging saliva actually has health benefits. It boosts the immune system and prevents catching a cold. Come on. Let’s continue.”
Gu Jingze grunted and looked at Lin Che, “If that’s the case, there’s an even more direct method of exchanging saliva. This is too troublesome.”
“Huh?” Lin Che looked at him, puzzled.
His dark eyes moved to her plump lips that were glistening in the light.
Lin Che felt it. She suddenly understood what he meant.
Her face turned red. She covered it with her hands. She was speechless.
Gu Jingze looked at her standing angrily over there, unable to take back her words. He grinned happily.
However, his eyes could not stop looking at her lips.
Feeling her stare at him, he forced himself to look away.
Lin Che snorted and sat down. Gu Jingze said as he ate, “Lin Che, have you nothing to say to me?”
Seeing how she was still in the mood to cook noodles, his heart began to burn up.
Lin Che replied, “Like what?”
Gu Jingze pulled his face, “Like maybe something about tabloids and rumors.”
Lin Che reacted, “Ah, about that. It’s just a rumor… I don’t know what to do either. Do you want to tell Jingyu about us? So that…”
“Jingyu has issues with the family. If he knew, he might just announce it to the whole world. Do you want everyone to know about us?”
“Ah… of course not,” Lin Che shook her head vigorously.
Was she mad? To announce her marriage with Gu Jingze at this time. The news out there was already overwhelming. How would she be able to continue acting?
Gu Jingze looked at her face ridden with disdain. Although he wanted to resist, he could not help but start to feel sad.
“Do you not want people to know about us so badly?” he asked.
Lin Che replied, “Of course. We’ll be divorced sooner or later. Then, it’ll be my second marriage. Also, I still want to act. The company does not know that I’m married. My contracted stated that I cannot marry for three years. I’m already violating it.”
Gu Jingze looked at her deeply and then lowered his head, picking at his noodles.
Gu Jingze said, “Although you don’t want to expose our relationship, you shouldn’t overdo the rumors with Gu Jingyu, right?”
“This… this I guarantee you. I really know nothing about. This…” she also had no idea why Gu Jingyu was crazy enough to post a Weibo message like that.
She felt that Gu Jingyu was a rebellious child. With no rumors and under the tight management of the company, he decided to create some rumors himself.
“It was all Gu Jingyu’s doing. It has nothing to do with me, ” she could only say so much.
Gu Jingze replied, “I know he is rebellious, but he is never unreasonable. If you tell him outright that you don’t like it, he will respect your opinion.”
“I did, but he refused to delete his Weibo post,” Lin Che had literally begged him to delete it. Gu Jingyu only continued to poke fun at her and not take her request seriously.
Gu Jingze said, “You have to reject him directly. Don’t let him harass you. If you don’t know how to do that, let me help you.”
He continued, “Give me your phone. I’ll help you send him a text.”
With a cold expression, he held out his hand.
