MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Clumsily Cut Her Hand)
Gu Jingze bent down and took off her shoe to inspect her foot.
With her foot in his hand, Lin Che felt embarrassed, “It stinks. I’ve been wearing shoes for the whole day and I didn’t wash my feet!”
Gu Jingze glanced up at her, “It’s fine. It has even been on my face before and I never said anything. If it bothered me, I would have thrown you off the bed.”
Lin Che smiled as she looked at him, “So why aren’t you bothered by it?”
Gu Jingze patted her foot, “There’s no point in being bothered when I’m living with an uncultured person like you. It’s better to get used to it.”
As he talked, he helped put on her shoe.
Lin Che stayed in the shopping cart. She turned back smiling at Gu Jingze and said, “Push me. I’m not getting down.”
Gu Jingze remarked, “Lazy egg.”
Although he sounded unwilling, he had already begun pushing her.
She sat in the cart and directed Gu Jingze to buy things.
“I want the eggplants over there.”
“Ah, I want some chips.”
“Gu Jingze, push faster. There’s some discount over there.”
Lin Che was chirping away while Gu Jingze pushed her with resentment. The two of them went around the supermarket aisles happily. It was a sight that made people sigh with envy.
Some people commented, “See how someone else’s boyfriend dotes on his girlfriend?”
“You envy them, but you need to consider how they look first. See, the girl is so pretty. If that was my girlfriend, I’d also dote on her like that.”
“Get lost. You didn’t see how the boyfriend looked like. He’s so handsome.”
“Eh, talking about him, he does look a bit familiar.”
“I thought the girl looked familiar.”
“Anyway, both of them are so good looking. They match so perfectly.”
Lin Che held no bars as she shopped. Very quickly, they left with three full big bags.
Gu Jingze had difficulty going out. He discreetly stopped the ushers outside, took his three bags, and walked towards his car.
Lin Che offered, “Let me take one.”
Gu Jingze refused, “With your little arms and legs, forget it.”
Lin Che pouted but watching him, a big and strong man, carry the three bags swiftly to the car and throwing them all in the trunk, she thought that he looked charismatic and manly.
Lin Che smiled warmly and sat in the car.
Back home, as she was about to begin cooking, she became depressed again.
She put on an apron with professionalism but when it came to cutting the vegetables, she had butter fingers.
Gu Jingze looked from the side and silently wanted to help her.
Especially whenever the knife came down towards her hand, he felt his temples suddenly jump along.
“Okay, okay. Let me help you cut the vegetables,” he quickly walked over and said.
“No need. I’m doing it just fine. See, I think my knife skills are getting better. My learning ability is really high… Ouch…”
Her tone fell. The knife had made a cut on her fingertip.
She dropped the knife on the floor. Fortunately, it was a small knife so it did not bounce off.
Even so, anyone would have felt scared seeing it drop.
Gu Jingze rushed over to her side and held up her hand. Blood was flowing out from the opening.
Gu Jingze tugged her finger, “You are really… I told you not to cut anymore.”
As he spoke, he directly put her finger into his mouth.
Lin Che’s finger hurt.
She looked at his brows as he sucked on her finger. It felt warm. She felt the tip of his tongue brush gently against her finger.
Lin Che stood still and watched him. Looking into his black eyes, her face became hot.
“Dirty…” Lin Che thought. It must be dirty from handling all the vegetables.
Gu Jingze sucked once and let go of her hand. He bent his head to look closely.
He turned around to fetch the first aid kit. Then, he applied a band-aid on her finger.
Lin Che looked at the perfectly taped band-aid and then looked at the obsessive-compulsive disorder patient.
Gu Jingze frowned and push her aside, “That’s enough. Stand aside. You’re so clumsy. Don’t move around.”
Lin Che said, “The food…”
Gu Jingze snorted and looked at the recipe, “I’ll do it.”
“Ah… I feel bad,” Lin Che was more than happy to skip cooking, but she looked at him appeasingly.
Gu Jingze picked up the knife and cut the vegetables. He glanced up at Lin Che and said, “I’m afraid that if I let you continue, you’re going to burn down the whole kitchen.”
“…” Lin Che pouted, “It was all your fault. You talked me into doing this.”
Gu Jingze glanced at her again, “You’re just stupid; don’t make excuses.”
Gu Jingze’s movements were swift. He cut the ingredients while looking at the recipe. The ingredients he cut looked exactly the same as in the recipe.
He said as he cooked, “You still did such a poor job following a recipe. Your brain is really dumb.”
Lin Che observed the way he cooked. He was like a role model. She had no way to retaliate.
Lin Che leaned against the counter, appreciating this charismatic Gu Jingze’s swift and flawless movements. She said, “Right, do you still remember my manager, Yu Minmin?”
“Of course I do.”
“What do you mean of course?!”
“You think everybody has poor a memory like you? I have a great memory.”
“…” Lin Che felt he really looked down on her all the time.
Lin Che continued, “Something happened to Yu Minmin recently.”
Gu Jingze asked as he stir-fried, “What happened?”
Lin Che briefly explained to him and added, “I think Sister Yu is so capable.”
“Her family is messy, but she’s still so proactive in her work. She gives her best effort so that no one knows how terrible her life at home is. I think this is what a professional person should be like, separating personal life from work. If I hadn’t been working this closely with her recently, I would never have known what happened to her either.”
Gu Jingze thought deeply and his actions slowed down slightly.
However, he quickly picked it up again.
Soon, he plated the dish.
Gu Jingze said, “Here, try this.”
Lin Che looked at it. It looked pretty good. She took her chopsticks and hesitantly took a bite.
She did not expect it to taste so good.
Lin Che turned to Gu Jingze in surprise, “Don’t tell me you know how to cook?”
Gu Jingze replied, “It’s my first time.”
Gu Jingze wiped his hands with a wet cloth and went to prepare the next dish.
“I followed every step of the recipe closely. Of course, it should not go wrong.”
“But I’ve tried before and whatever I made was bad.”
“Then the problem is not the recipe. It’s you. You’re too dumb, so it can’t be helped.”
