Chapter 47: Gu Jingyu Said it has Nothing to do with me
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
As the news became so huge, Lin Che could feel all eyes on her when she got to the scene.
Upon seeing Lin Che arrive, Director Fu quickly called her, “Ah, Mrs. Gu is here.”
Lin Che said annoyed, “What Mrs. Gu!”
“Hasn’t Gu Jingyu already admitted that you are his wife? That makes you Mrs. Gu.”
“Bastard! There’s nothing going on. Watch your mouth. There are reporters everywhere.”
Reporters were everywhere. If they caught a word, she dared not imagine what would be in the headlines the next day. The entire crew had already acknowledged their relationship.
No matter what she said, it would be of no use.
Director Fu proceeded to give her a chair, “Come, come. Mrs. Gu cannot sit on such a small chair. That is for last-minute actors. We should have a proper seat for you. Come, lie over here. This is all yours.”
Lin Che felt like punching him, “Are you trying to sabotage me?”
There was a clear hierarchy in the crew. Small actresses like Lin Che dared to not invite attention. Big, comfortable lounge chairs like that were reserved for the big stars. Lin Che was content with finding a space for her own foldable chair as usual.
Director Fu laughed loudly and said, “It’s the director’s orders. Nobody will dare to object. Anyway, Lin Che, it’s time for you to start getting used to it. You’re already almost beating Sister Fei Ran in the headlines. You’re no longer an unknown minor actress.”
“…” as he said, Director Fu forced her onto the chair.
Lin Che’s mouth twitched as she sat there. It was indeed much more comfortable than her own foldable chair.
Waiting for a scene was tiring. However, being able to lie there in comfort made a whole lot of difference.
The actress at a similar level as Lin Che witnessed everything and was unhappy. She looked in Lin Che’s direction with jealousy burning in her eyes.
Too bad it was Lin Che that Gu Jingyu fell for.
At the start, she thought that Lin Che deliberately caused all this. Now that Gu Jingyu admitted on his own accord, there was nothing anybody could say.
They could only say that Lin Che was one lucky girl.
Just then, Gu Jingyu entered late.
He immediately saw Lin Che lying there using her phone and walked over to her, not caring about his agent’s objections.
Everybody’s eyes followed this newly formed yin-yang concoction.
Lin Che heard some noise and looked up to see Gu Jingyu smiling devilishly at her. The nerve of him to walk over like that. She wanted to punch him.
“Hey, you’re early,” he greeted her with a smile.
Lin Che got up and said, “Gu Jingyu, you… what’s the meaning of your Weibo post?”
Gu Jingyu raised his hands innocently and said, “What did I say?”
“What did you say? Didn’t you say in your latest post, something about loneliness, something about lack of freedom, something…”
“Oh, that. Well… it’s just a normal Weibo post. Just an expression of my feelings to gain some sympathy,” Gu Jingyu said nonchalantly and sat down.
Lin Che jumped up and raised her voice at Gu Jingyu, “You, you, you. Is that the normal you? Didn’t you see the news?”
“I did,” he raised his head and glanced up at Lin Che who seemed like she was going to burst with anger. He thought it was cute.
Just as she thought, he really did do this on purpose!
Gu Jingyu said helplessly, “You know how reporters love imagining things. I can’t help it. Look, I didn’t even mention your name and yet they drew a connection to you. I never said anything about a girlfriend and yet they thought of that too. What can I do?”
“…” Lin Che looked at Gu Jingyu’s nonchalant face. She wanted to rip his mouth out.
Yes, he did not mention her name and he didn’t directly mention a relationship, but… that Weibo post was so obvious. He would be lying if he said it was not intentional.
“In any case, you need to delete that Weibo post!” Lin Che demanded.
Gu Jingyu smiled and leaned against her chair, “Alright, then I will say that Lin Che does not want us to be mistaken so I will be deleting that post.”
“Is that not it?”
“Y-Y-You…” Lin Che was speechless. She was so mad at Gu Jingyu but she just could not win against him.
Who said Gu Jingyu was cool? He was clearly a pesky little person.
At the same time…
Gu Jingze was still unaware of the news between his wife and someone else.
Mo Huiling called Gu Jingze up in the morning.
She wanted to see him.
Gu Jingze arrived at Mo Huiling’s door. Mo Huiling looked at him sadly with melancholy in her eyes.
Gu Jingze asked, “What’s wrong?”
Mo Huiling said, “Why haven’t I heard from you for two days?”
“I…” Gu Jingze said, “I accompanied Lin Che back to her home for an engagement party.”
“What?” Mo Huiling fumed, “You’ve been ignoring me because of her?”
Gu Jingze could hear the hatred that Mo Huiling had towards Lin Che in her voice.
His brows furrowed. He said in a displeased tone, “Huiling, this is not her fault. I had to marry and because of me, she was forced into this marriage as well.”
Mo Huiling’s heart hurt as she looked at Gu Jingze.
She knew that she was being impatient and had said some unpleasant things.
She puckered her lips, tugged at his sleeves, and said, “But I don’t like her at all.”
Gu Jingze knew it was natural for her to have such feelings. He said, “I know that but I just want to say that this is all my fault. Don’t blame her.”
Mo Huiling’s lips tightened as she looked at him, “I don’t like it even more when you keep speaking up for her.”
“Jingze, I’m just so lonely. When I’m alone, I think of how you and she are together, officially married and living the life we’ve always wanted. Living together peacefully and happily. Do you know how I feel? I can’t help but imagine things.”
Gu Jingze felt pain in his heart.
Mo Huiling continued, “From the moment you were sick, we stuck together but your family never approved of us. It’s a lot of pressure on me, you know?”
Gu Jingze knew that she went through a lot for him.
Mo Huiling’s tears rolled down her cheeks as she said, “Can you accompany me to the villa for a walk?”
Gu Jingze sighed, “Alright.”
The two of them drove to the villa by the river.
This was Gu Jingze’s villa. The wonderful scenery and wooden villa made a heartwarming sight.
Mo Huiling arrived feeling a lot better. She took off her coat as she watched Gu Jingze gather wood outside for the fireplace. Breathing in the scent of the wood, coupled with a movie, this was pure bliss.
Mo Huiling looked at Gu Jingze who was on one knee preparing the wood with deep concentration, the muscles on his arms flexing sexily. She could not stop staring.
