Chapter 44: My Wife Does Not Concern You
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Gu Jingze turned around to see her walking out in a bathrobe. He could not stop looking at her.
Lin Che said, “I had no choice but to wear this. Seriously, this is all your fault! Did you do it on purpose? To think that my dress could be ruined like that!”
Gu Jingze could only stare at her in her bathrobe with the sash resting loosely around her waist.
If he had not known this woman’s intelligence, she would not have been capable of acting so naturally seductive. He felt that she was being deliberate.
If she was only wearing a bathrobe, that would mean that underneath was only some lingerie…
Gu Jingze’s body grew hot. Staring at her in her robes, he did not want to look away. He kept thinking about her skin and her loose outfit. Reaching in would be so easy.
Gu Jingze shook his thoughts away as he heard the sound of the door outside.
Lin Che said, “The clothes are here already? Go bring them in quickly.”
Gu Jingze nodded and looked at Lin Che before going to open the door.
The room was a suite with a bedroom inside and a living room outside.
Gu Jingze closed the bedroom door and sighed heavily before walking towards the main door.
However, to his surprise, it was a man with jet-black hair and pale face.
Qin Qing saw Gu Jingze and his eyes jumped to look inside the room. When he could not see Lin Che, he turned his eyes back to Gu Jingze. Lin Che’s relationship with him was fishy. Hesitantly, he asked, “Is… Lin Che here?”
Although the person in front of him made Qin Qing feel slightly jealous, he could not help but look down at the ring on his finger. At a closer look, his eyes lit up.
That indeed looked like the Gu family’s ring.
Somehow, he just did not want to lower his guard in front of this man.
Thus, the intensity in his eyes increased as he said, “I am Lin Che’s friend.”
Gu Jingze stood there half a head taller than Qin Qing. His pair of dark eyes were unfathomable and endless like the night sky, deep and unobtrusive.
His eyes swept over Qin Qing. Gu Jingze could not understand what made Lin Che so drawn to him. What kind of taste in men did she have? Did she really like this type of pretty boy? Somehow, one was Gu Jingyu and now the other one was Qin Qing. They were both just pretty boys.
Gu Jingze’s voice was cold and proud. Although he was being a gentleman, he had a high aura that was not to be messed with, “Lin Che is inside, but she’s busy.”
“Busy?” Qin Qing asked suspiciously, “Tell her it’s me. She will see me.”
Gu Jingze’s slender fingers touched his nose, his eyes surrendering, “She’s not exactly busy. She’s just not wearing clothes right now so I can’t open the door for you.”
Qin Qing was shocked.
Seeing Qin Qing’s expression, he continued, “It was all my fault. I was careless… I ruined her dress and I’ve asked my men to bring her some clothes. So for now, it’s really not convenient for her to come out.”
Even though those words were concealed, Qin Qing understood.
Revealing a hint of awkwardness, Qin Qing never thought that this man in front of him and Lin Che would have… that kind of relationship.
Qin Qing replied, “You may not be aware, but Lin Che and I go way back. We’ve known each other for many years.” He could not help but feel hostile towards Gu Jingze.
“Oh, Lin Che told me,” Gu Jingze said softly. “She has mentioned it to me.”
“I know you may be powerful and can do anything you want, but Lin Che is a simple girl. I don’t want her to get hurt. So if you aren’t serious about her, I will definitely not take this lying down.”
Like what Han Caiying said earlier, even if Gu Jingze had a relationship with her, he would simply toss her aside once he got sick of her.
It made Qin Qing upset.
In his heart, it was not that Gu Jingze was not an equal match to him or that Gu Jingze was playing with Lin Che. Instead, he wondered if Gu Jingze had cheated her into being with him?
Gu Jingze never thought that he would one day be threatened by Qin Qing.
Looking at Qin Qing, he said, “If you are warning me as a friend, I’ll have you rest assured that my relationship with her is completely legitimate. We have mutual feelings and trust. There are no secrets between us and there is a commitment between us that will not be violated.”
What he said was true, but that was not all there was.
Gu Jingze’s expression changed to something more threatening. As he looked at Qin Qing, he said, “However, if you are warning me as a man, I’ll remind you that Lin Che is now my woman.”
His sharp expression was like a sword that made Qin Qing feel a great threat at once.
In Qin Qing’s heart, his dislike for Gu Jingze grew even more. Then, a service staff arrived with two pieces of clothing, “Sir, your clothes are here.”
Gu Jingze’s expression softened as he said to the staff, “Just bring them in.”
The logo on those clothes did not go unnoticed by Qin Qing.
A high-end brand. Each piece of clothing cost at least tens of thousands.
Gu Jingze looked distantly at Qin Qing, “If there’s nothing else, I’m going back in.”
Without giving Qin Qing time to reply, he closed the door immediately.
Qin Qing looked at the closed door in anger. He was not happy to get the cold shoulder after coming all the way here.
He had an even more unreasonable distaste for Gu Jingze.
Gu Jingze took the clothes in.
Lin Che was still waiting inside. When she saw Gu Jingze finally return, she asked, “Were you talking to someone at the door?”
The hotel room was soundproof and she dared not step out. She could only hear a murmur of voices, but she didn’t know what was going on.
Gu Jingze nodded, “Yeah, there was a mad dog but I had it taken away.”
He was not someone who would be mean to strangers. He did not know Qin Qing at all.
However, he felt resentful upon thinking how curt and direct his words were.
Lin Che laughed and said in amazement, “A dog in a hotel? How did that ever happen?”
“It was a mad dog. Mad dogs like to run around poking their nose in everything.”
He then handed the clothes to her, “Go put them on. They are your size.”
Lin Che looked down at the clothes. They were beautiful and looked very exquisite.
“Wow, aren’t these expensive?” she said.
Gu Jingze replied, “I’m not sure.”
Lin Che smiled at Gu Jingze, “These are beautiful. They look grand. Thanks, Gu Jingze. Who knew that being your wife could make me as grand as you too? Not bad.”
He only thought how cute she was trying to look charming.
For the first time, her simple compliments made Gu Jingze feel bashful and happy.
