Chapter 329: What A Vexing Fool Of A Girl
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
This Lin Che was already so disobedient ordinarily. Since she was the Madam, the maids definitely did not dare to do anything to her. They would not be able to force her to do anything either.
If she really did not look after herself properly, who could interfere?
With these thoughts in his head, Gu Jingze actually drove back home unknowingly.
When he arrived home, sure enough, he found out that Lin Che had still not returned.
She should have been recuperating but still ran off for filming. She had even gone so far as to film so late that he returned before her.
Naturally, Gu Jingze was filled with rage inside. However, he had not expected to be greeted with the sight of Gu Jingyu sending Lin Che home when he went to the door…
Gu Jingze knew that it did not mean anything for Gu Jingyu to send a friend home. Similarly, it did not mean anything for Gu Jingyu to send Lin Che home, but…
Gu Jingze stood there with his hand wrapped around the white wooden pillar in front of him. Unknowingly, he had already left on it a string of marks.
He had simply lowered himself too much in rushing home so urgently.
Lin Che had plenty of people who treated her well and plenty of people who were concerned about her too.
He had flattered himself too much in thinking that she would not be able to live on without him. However, it was clear that this was not the case.
Lin Che looked at Gu Jingyu and asked lightly, “Hey, hey, hey. Gu Jingyu, are you alright?”
Gu Jingyu said, “I’m fine, I’m fine. I’m old and can’t take it anymore. Drinking even a little bit of beer makes me like this. Alright, go in. The next time I treat you to a meal, we’ll drink some good wine. If you drink too much one time, then you won’t ridicule me like this.”
When she heard Gu Jingyu mention treating her to a meal again, Lin Che started feeling even more embarrassed. After some thinking, she still said directly to Gu Jingyu, “Senior Jingyu, about that wrist-watch or something… frankly speaking, I just thought that you simply liked joking around. I gave you the watch as an expression of thanks, but… that wrist-watch really isn’t that important.”
Gu Jingyu looked at her. “How could it be unimportant? It’s the first present you gave me.”
“I’m really sorry, Senior Jingyu. That present was something I casually asked Sister Yu to select. To be honest, I didn’t choose the present very carefully… so, just treat it as something ordinary and don’t take it to heart, alright? Otherwise, I’ll really feel a little apologetic…”
Gu Jingyu froze. Lin Che glanced at him and quickly lowered her head and bowed to him imbued with regret. “I’m sorry, Senior Jingyu.”
Gu Jingyu stared at Lin Che. Her waist was bent at a ninety-degree angle and she did not straighten her body for a long time.
Gu Jingyu felt the urge to roll his eyes as he looked at her.
This Lin Che… she was so silly. He did not know what to say about her.
He really wanted to scold her but at the same time, he could no longer bear to scold her when he saw her be so apologetic. He could only look at her in disbelief. “Alright, alright. Get up. Seriously, I was just joking around and you still believed it? Why? I didn’t say anything either. I only thanked you for the gift and you really just got so serious.”
Lin Che heard this and lifted her head slightly. “Really?”
“Of course, you idiot.”
“I… I just felt a little apologetic when I saw Senior Jingyu thinking so highly of it. Next time though, I will definitely properly choose a present myself!”
“Forget it! Tell me, what should I say about you when you act so silly? Since you already gave it to me, why did you have to be so honest?”
“I felt uncomfortable not telling you the truth.”
“What if you tell the truth and I end up feeling uncomfortable?” Gu Jingyu said.
“Then… Then I’ll give you another present and I’ll definitely choose it personally,” Lin Che said hastily.
“Forget it, forget it. I’m just kidding. You don’t have to give me anything. Alright, you should go in quickly. Seize your chance while I still haven’t registered what you said and don’t want to beat you up yet.”
“Oh, alright. Then, be careful on the road, Senior Jingyu,” Lin Che said quickly.
Gu Jingyu looked at this silly girl speechlessly.
This Lin Che was so silly that it was also vexing.
Why would anyone else say what she said in such a straightforward manner? She was not afraid of offending him and actually getting kicked out of the industry for the rest of her life without any hope of succeeding either.
However… he really could not bear to kick her out of the industry. Ah, he sighed. He held his slightly-hurting head, pulled the car door open, and got in.
Having spoken to Gu Jingyu, Lin Che felt much more at ease. After entering the house, she hummed a song and walked in.
However, she lifted her head only to immediately land her eyes on the man standing at the doorway who resembled a bronze statue.
He was ice-cold and gloomy at the same time. What else could he be if not a bronze statue?
Even the purple color on his face looked especially fitting for the occasion. It immediately made Lin Che think of the words bronze statue.
Especially since he did not move at all and stared at her without even blinking, Lin Che was immediately startled.
Gu Jingze was dressed in his usual work attire. The well-ironed suit made him look extremely robust. However, his ordinarily neutral face was slightly rigid.
His unyielding stare made Lin Che feel that it was too late to avoid him.
“You…” Lin Che was about to speak when a wave of nausea in her nether regions reminded her that they were still in the midst of a fight.
She had still not forgotten how he had injured her and had continued to injure her until they had arrived at the hospital.
She would not mind it if he really had been delirious, but it was different this time because he had used such brutal forces against her despite clearly knowing that she would get hurt.
Lin Che glanced at him and walked inside directly as if she had not seen him.
From the side, the butler looked at the two of them in the midst of a quarrel and felt very upset. He quickly asked at the side, “Sir, how is it? Would you like to go in and rest?”
“I’m not going!” Gu Jingze turned around and walked forward with his arms behind his back. He took two steps but then felt that something was not right.
This was his house. Why did he have to leave?
In the room, the feeling of emptiness was extremely palpable.
Lin Che had not slept here alone for a long time. When the two of them had been here, she had not felt it. But now that she was alone, she suddenly felt that this place was huge.
It was good that the room was big. It was spacious and bright, luxurious and comfortable. She really liked big houses, but actually living in a place that was as magnificent as a palace still made her feel very lonely.
Lin Che pulled the wardrobe open, removed her clothes, and put on her pajamas.
After the maids helped wash her pajamas each day, they would always hang it neatly inside the spotlessly-clean wardrobe. The clothes had a hint of lavender scent to them from burning lavender essential oil, which lingered faintly on each piece of clothing.
The Gu residence was really very comfortable. There were maids to assist in handling everything and every single detail was always perfectly looked after. Lin Che realized that because she had stayed here for a long time, she was actually accustomed to all of this.
She could not help but wonder if she would instead find her surroundings a little unfamiliar if she left this place one day.
Lowering her head, she smiled faintly. Then, she heard the door get pushed open.
Lin Che froze. She turned her head to see Gu Jingze walking in in a natural and poised manner.
Lin Che was not wearing any clothes except her undergarments.
She was momentarily stunned and only remembered that she was still naked after a long time.
“Ah,” she cried. She frantically began pulling her clothes on to cover herself.
