Lin Che asked curiously, “What banquet is it?”

Gu Jingze said, “Just an internal charity banquet. I need to bring a female partner along.”

Lin Che replied, “Then take your female partner along.”

“I have a wife. Why would I need a female partner?”

Lin Che laughed, “Alright. Then, I’ll… go with you.”

On the outside, it was as if she was being forced but she was actually happy about it.

To attend a banquet with Gu Jingze.

She had never done that before…

Soon after, the caretaker called and told Lin Che that she would be picked up to change her clothes and tidy up so that it would be more convenient for her to attend the banquet.

In the evening.

Gu Jingze arrived early and was in Lin Che’s private makeup studio. As the makeup artist was a top-skilled professional, there usually was a lot of people. Yu Minmin even wanted to bring Lin Che here to get her makeup done for the award ceremony but there was a long line. Today, because of Gu Jingze, Lin Che had the whole studio to herself.

The makeup artist did not know Gu Jingze’s relation to Lin Che, but she abided her work ethic and did not ask. She did not involve herself with the gossip outside either and was very courteous to Lin Che.

When Gu Jingze arrived, she was extra cautious.

They were not afraid of gossip.

Whoever dared to gossip about Gu Jingze would be asking for a death wish.

Gu Jingze saw that Lin Che was all ready as she turned around. She was dressed in red which somehow did not look flirtatious on her. Instead, it was so refreshing like a flower blooming after the rain. She looked so pure and clean.

The makeup artist at the side remarked, “Miss Lin is very pretty and her skin is good. Out of all the people I’ve done makeup for, Miss Lin’s skin is the best.”

Lin Che turned back and smiled shyly. She lifted her skirt and looked at Gu Jingze, “How do I look? Good?”

Gu Jingze smiled and nodded, “Hm, I guess you do the dress justice.”

“…” Lin Che pouted. She just knew that he wouldn’t say nice things!

Couldn’t he talk nicely?

Gu Jingze tugged Lin Che and said, “Let’s go.”

In the car, Lin Che asked Gu Jingze, “Is the banquet this time huge? Why did you invite me? Will it be okay?”

“It will be okay. Everybody is bringing a female partner so nobody will ask about our relationship. The banquet is quite huge. It’s an annual charity banquet.”

“Oh, but I don’t think I’ve ever been to any banquets with you before,” Lin Che asked with curiosity.

Gu Jingze said naturally, “Of course. I usually let my employees attend these banquets on my behalf. I don’t normally attend them.”

“Really? But I thought it would be like in a TV show. Capitalists like you would be going around banquets and whatnot. There would be lots of entertaining to do.”

Gu Jingze replied, “You’re talking about capitalists in small companies. That is why one must climb right up to the top. Otherwise, you’ll face other people forever.”


Did he mean that with his position now, he didn’t need to face other people and entertain them anymore?

Gu Jingze was really… praising himself with every opportunity he got.

Lin Che looked at Gu Jingze speechlessly but at the front, the chauffeur had already stopped the car in front of the entrance of a seven-star hotel.

Lin Che followed Gu Jingze down the car. Looking ahead, there was already a crowd gathering toward them and welcoming them.

“President Gu is here.”

“A big welcome for President Gu.”

“President Gu, please come in.”

Tagging along, Lin Che had also begun to invite a lot of attention. Nobody dared to ask who she was but they saw Gu Jingze holding her hand as they entered. Lin Che’s dress was exquisite. It was wine red and flowed to the floor; It looked graceful, generous and extremely elegant.

People at the back were talking, “Look! That’s Gu Jingze.”

“We don’t even see him once a year.”

“That’s because he keeps a very low-profile. People hear of his legacy, but never see him.”

“Who’s that beside him?”

“It must be his female partner. She looks familiar like some celebrity.”

Everybody looked sourly at the lady beside Gu Jingze. As the two of them entered, a line of people traced behind and sighed in exclamation. Indeed, wherever Gu Jingze went, he certainly was the talking point.

“But wasn’t he rumored to be with the daughter of the Mo family? How come the girl is different?”

“But nobody has seen Gu Jingze bring her out before.”

A few people were debating, oblivious that Mo Huiling was sitting at the back. She held her cup with hatred.

She had already heard that Gu Jingze was planning to attend this banquet. It was understandable because this banquet was held annually and it was the biggest charity banquet. Gu Jingze would definitely attend this banquet and make some donations.

However, Mo Huiling did not expect Gu Jingze to bring Lin Che with him.

What they said was right. Gu Jingze rarely took Mo Huiling out on public occasions.

That was because Gu Jingze liked to keep a low profile. So out of the three brothers, he was the only one who had never been exposed properly.

Of course, Mo Huiling wanted to go out with him, but she was worried that Gu Jingze would think that she wanted to expose him. Thus, she controlled her thoughts, never fulfilling her wish.

Now, Gu Jingze actually brought Lin Che here…

Mo Huiling gritted her teeth as she watched them go in. Her eyes moved.

Lin Che and Gu Jingze sat on the good seats on the upper level. They could see the entire hall while those below were unable to spot them.

It was Lin Che’s first time at a banquet like this. She immediately whipped out her phone, “I’m going to try taking a photo. Heh heh.”

Gu Jingze looked at her speechlessly, “You would take a selfie with anything.”

Lin Che retorted, “It’s a rare chance. When I put this on my Weibo, my fans will think very highly of me since I got to attend a banquet like this. Ah, I didn’t bring my selfie stick. Help me take a picture.”

Gu Jingze looked even more speechlessly at Lin Che, “You…”

Was she now so capable that she was no longer scared of him? From taking selfies herself to asking him to help take pictures now…

Lin Che looked pitifully at Gu Jingze, “Help me, please? You just need to press a button.”

Gu Jingze had no other choice. Luckily, no one saw them. Otherwise, if someone saw him helping take a selfie… That would be something.

He took the phone and glared at Lin Che. With a snap, he took a few shots of her. Lin Che took back her phone and looked at the shots in dismay. She asked, “Gu Jingze… Have you never taken photos before? See? You need to include the entire hall below in the background. Your shot makes me look like I’m drinking in some shady hotel bar. Nobody can tell that it’s a classy banquet at all.”

Thus, he took photos of her again but it was still unsatisfactory.

“Gu Jingze, I have to hand it to you. Where’s your sense of beauty? Sense of beauty! Why do I look so distorted?”
