Chapter 455: So They Used To Love Each Other
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
But it turned out to be such a tragic romance.
It was just like how she felt about Qin Qing. Actually, everyone had a fond yet painful love experience when they were young.
However, she now already understood that she and Qin Qing were just a moment’s dream while her mother’s dream lasted for many, many years.
Lin Che looked at Lu Qinyu, “Uncle Lu, don’t be sad. All these happened years ago and you must have wanted what was best for my mother. That was why you made such a choice.”
Lu Qinyu looked at Lin Che. Who would have thought? Who would have thought…
This person in front of him was her daughter.
Was this Heaven’s will to send her daughter right to him? To remind him once again of that women he let down?
It was too bad that there were some things he couldn’t say to Lin Che, but he knew that no words could describe their relationship or how hard they tried to stay apart.
Lu Qinyu only looked at this girl, feeling something in his heart.
This was her daughter and he very much wanted to treat her better. It was not to make up for the past, but perhaps it was a ‘love me, love my dog’ kind of feeling.
When Han Caiying and her daughters entered, they were stunned by the entire scene.
They had never attended such a high-end event. Now, they felt as if they just entered a whole new world.
Han Caiying said, “Look at all the brand clothing these ladies are wearing. The people we usually meet still wear some Tiffany or Chanel to show off. Look at these people now. Those pearls and gems must be extremely expensive.”
Lin Li said, “Mom, stop staring at them. You’re embarrassing.”
At this moment, Lin Li saw Lu Chuxia and wanted to call out to her.
However, Lu Chuxia caught a glimpse of Lin Li and didn’t seem bothered to acknowledge her. She turned her head and walked away.
Han Caiying asked, “Why is this Miss Lu like that? So what if she’s a rich man’s daughter? Isn’t it a bit too arrogant to ignore someone like this?”
Lin Li took a deep breath, “Beggars can’t be choosers. Don’t talk too much.”
Han Caiying of course also understood. She merely complained a little bit before being drawn back to the people in front of them.
Looking at such a grand banquet, she was already very satisfied. She really wished that she could always attend banquets like this and not have to go back to that three-bedroom apartment.
The grandest banquet she ever attended was Qin Qing’s engagement party. Seeing all the wealthy people there, she already thought that it was amazing. She only realized today that the Qin family could not compare to this.
If Lin Li could win this time and snag a wealthy man here, that would be truly amazing.
However, at this time, Han Caiying also saw that Lin Che was sitting at the second level.
The three women were arranged to sit in a corner and left alone. The people here didn’t know them and also felt that their status was probably nothing much since they were unknown in the socialite circle. Thus, nobody bothered about them at all.
They could only watch as people walked around.
Han Caiying looked up, feeling unjust. Lin Che’s seat was actually that good.
She huffed and asked, “How come she can sit there?”
Lin Yu said, “Mom, don’t you see who is beside her? The rich princess from the Lu family that Sister knows is very capable, right? But Sister only knows this one Lu family princess. Now, look at Lin Che. She’s sitting beside the First Young Master of the Lu family while the Lu family’s old master is across her. On her other side is Gu Jingze. Of course, she can sit there.”
Han Caiying felt that the circumstances were even more unjust.
“With Gu Jingze, the people beside her now are also so capable.”
Lin Yu said sourly, “Seriously, isn’t she just someone who did chores in our house? She even used to wash my clothes.”
“Exactly. She also used to clean our rooms.”
Of course, Lin Li also felt unjust. She thought about tomorrow’s horseback riding event.
Tomorrow… Even if she couldn’t win against Lin Che tomorrow, she would definitely show her.
Going back from the banquet.
Lu Qinyu walked Lin Che out, “If you meet any problems the next few days, remember to ask Beichen for help.”
Lin Che quickly replied, “Thanks, Uncle Lu.”
Gu Jingze left with Lin Che. On the way back. Lin Che tugged at her shawl, looking dignified.
Gu Jingze asked, “Have you told Old Man Lu already?”
“Yes, how did you know?” As they just left, Lin Che hadn’t had the chance to tell him.
He looked at her, “I guessed from your face.”
Lin Che thought it made sense. Gu Jingze was such a smart person. She definitely couldn’t hide it from him. He would have already understood long ago with one look.
Lin Che replied, “Yes. I’ve asked him and he also admitted it. He had a relationship with my mother, which ended peacefully. He didn’t tell me in great detail, but I feel that there is no need for him to treat me so well. I feel bad that he treats me so nicely because of his past relationship with my mother.”
“Well, he already wanted to treat you well before he knew about it. Furthermore, if we don’t consider the relationship, he used to teach your mother. They knew each other for so many years. Now that you don’t have a mother and you’re all alone, he wants to treat you well because he pities you. Don’t feel like his care for your mother is being passed down to you.”
Actually, this made sense too.
However, Lin Che still felt sheepish.
Gu Jingze said, “If you want to know more, I can actually bring one of your mother’s classmates here.”
“Huh? Bring them here?” Lin Che looked at him in surprise.
Gu Jingze nodded silently. His eyes glistened as he looked at her.
Lin Che didn’t think that Gu Jingze would quietly find and bring someone here without her knowing.
The lady who came also looked like an intellect. If Lin Che’s mother was still around, she would have been about the same age. In the room, it was a little difficult to hide her excitement. She didn’t expect herself have such a wonderful encounter someday, meeting such a strange person who suddenly pulled her out of her ordinary life.
Lin Che looked at the lady and asked Gu Jingze strangely, “How did you so quickly… bring her here?”
Gu Jingze spoke in a low voice, “I sent my men to look for her after knowing about it. Just now at the banquet, I sent a helicopter to bring her here.”
Gu Jingze looked at the woman in front of him and said, “The person who brought you here already told you what to do, right?”
“Yes yes, already did,” she said excitedly.
She had already been told on the way that there were many rules. She was not allowed to talk about anything else. She could only answer when asked.
Gu Jingze said, “I know that you were classmates with Su Cen in Q University. So, tell us everything you know that happened that year.”
