“Lin Che, can you sober up a little?” Gu Jingze walked over to her and pulled her up. His gaze subconsciously traveled to her flat abdomen.
Shifting his gaze, he said through gritted teeth, “Lin Che, sober up a bit.”
Lin Che lowered her head to look at Gu Jingze. “Hubby… you’re so fierce to me.”
Gu Jingze resisted his temper. “I can be even fiercer.”
“Hubby… do you really hate me?” She looked at him, her pearly white teeth biting down on her bottom lip and causing it to turn slightly red.
Strangely, Gu Jingze’s heart skipped a beat. As he looked at her, he had initially wanted to ignore her, but he still cajoled her patiently. “Alright, I don’t hate you.”
“Really?” He lifted Lin Che up in his arms.
Using her arms and legs, Lin Che immediately leaned on his body.
Gu Jingze discovered that uncharacteristically, he neither broke out in a rash nor did he feel uncomfortable.
He looked down at her head which was resting on his shoulder obediently. She seemed to have fallen asleep and her lashes were fluttering at an angle. At 168 centimeters tall, she could not really be considered petite. She was indeed taller than most girls. But right now, as she leaned against him, she appeared very small. It easily roused him to protect her.
After putting her down, her arm hooked around his neck yet again.
Her small face, completely flushed red from the alcohol, was very close to his. Her scent hit him in the face.
A slight numbing sensation tingled throughout his body.
“Hubby, I still want a hug.”
“…” Gu Jingze said, “Do you know who you’re speaking to?”
“My hubby,” she said in a daze.
For a moment, Gu Jingze was actually speechless.
“Be good and don’t make a fuss.” He wanted to push her away, but after stretching his arm out, he ended up just stroking her soft hair.
“Give me a hug,” she continued to mutter.
With no other choice, he laid down and pulled her into his arms, allowing her small head to rest in the crevice of his neck.
This only served to freeze him up as his body stiffened instantly.
Just inches beneath his eyes, he heard Lin Che sighing and letting out sounds of pleasure.
“…” Gu Jingze’s body softened.
Finally, Gu Jingze laid her down, only to hear her from behind him shouting with her eyes still closed, “I still want a hug!”
Gu Jingze frowned and massaged his forehead.
This woman… why was she so clingy?
And that was when a sudden thud came from the woman on the bed.
Gu Jingze quickly turned his head and saw that Lin Che had already fallen onto the floor.
Although the floor was thickly carpeted, it was obvious to the eye that Lin Che had fallen quite hard.
Holding on to her forehead, she got up and stared blankly ahead.
When she saw Gu Jingze, she frowned and asked in a confused tone, “What happened Gu Jingze? Why am I here?”
She was finally not calling him hubby?
“You’re drunk. If you’re awake, then get up. Wash up before you sleep.”
Lin Che replied with an “oh” as if she had also thought of something. She crawled up from the ground in a bid to get back onto the bed.
However, her body was limp and soft. After crawling up twice, she still did not manage to get on the bed.
As he watched her acting clumsily, Gu Jingze felt as though he had exhausted a year’s worth of patience before successfully convincing himself to walk over. Without any hesitation, he lifted Lin Che up in his arms.
Lin Che stiffened and her face gradually turned red.
Gu Jingze did not look at her, but he felt both of Lin Che’s hands gripping the lapels of his jacket. Her long lashes fluttered slightly.
He looked too handsome while carrying her. Unable to look at him calmly, she felt like she was about to suffocate. She could only grasp onto him as if she was deeply afraid that she would accidentally let out a sigh.
While tugging on his lapels, Lin Che raised her chin and slowly inched closer towards his face.
Gu Jingze lowered his head. As he looked into her clear eyes, the flames inside him almost burned his rationality completely away.
His eyes paused as they stared at her bright red lips. Her lips were plump and full as if they were specially designed for kissing.
The corner of his mouth twitched when a thought came to his head. However, he felt his body go rigid to the point where he could not move. It was as if his field of vision was confined only to her lips as he slowly inched downwards.
But at this exact moment…
Gu Jingze only felt a surge of heat on his chest as if something was flowing upwards…
She had vomited on his body…
Gu Jingze could no longer tolerate it. Immediately, he pulled her up and dragged her to the bathroom. He threw her into the bathtub, picked up the shower spray, and directed it at her head.
“So damn dirty… Can’t you be at least a bit feminine? What woman behaves like you? After drinking so much alcohol, you come home in a drunken frenzy and you even dare to barf on me…”
The water sprayed into Lin Che’s eyes and caused her to feel uncomfortable. She was almost about to cry as she struggled to get out. However, Gu Jingze simply jumped into the water himself, pushed her down, and forcefully washed her.
As for Lin Che, she felt extremely refreshed from soaking in the water. She found a comfortable position and laid down directly.
She slept quietly, her head resting in the crook of his arm. Her eyes were closed and her mouth was upturned. Under the warm water, her face was red as if she had put on some of the best quality rouge. The mist condensed slowly into pearls on her long lashes…
Gu Jingze gulped and with great difficulty, shifted his gaze away from her face.
He wanted to throw his hands in the air and leave her be; this troublemaker really worried him too much.
However, when he turned his head to look at her under the water looking like a well-cooked lobster, he thought twice. Eventually, he walked over and carried her out in one swift motion…
Lin Che woke up the next day feeling intense pain all over her body. While holding her head up with her hand, she got off the bed and looked down…
Why was she naked?
Her head was throbbing painfully, but she failed to immediately recall what had happened. What ridiculous things had she exactly done last night…
In a drunken fit, she held on to Gu Jingze persistently and had even… even vomited all over him…
The memory jolted her awake, causing Lin Che to quickly grab her clothes and put them on before running out in a hurry only to see the maid carrying a bowl of hangover soup.
“Madam, you’re awake. The hangover soup is ready.”
“Uh, where’s Sir?” Lin Che asked softly while feeling guilty.
“Why aren’t you calling me hubby anymore?” A voice traveled clearly from behind her and Lin Che immediately turned her head.
Gu Jingze suddenly walked towards her from behind and took large strides. His gaze was deep and alluring, and his expression was as cold as ice; it looked like it could freeze someone.
