MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Do You Feel Disappointed?)
Lin Che ate and watched Gu Jingze with admiration.
She never thought that he would be this capable.
It was his first time cooking and he produced a dish that was exactly like what was stated in the recipe.
It looked like having an obsessive-compulsive disorder had benefits.
Lin Che could not deny that Gu Jingze was smarter than the average person. Whatever he did was exemplary. Whatever he learned, he learned it fast.
In comparison, she was a lot dumber.
Lin Che thought, No wonder he always called her dumb.
He stood there holding a spatula and wearing an apron; it made him look like a house-husband. A handsome man cooking in an apron was extremely charming and irresistible.
Lin Che leaned her head and looked admiringly at this beautiful, appetizing scene. She rested her chin on her hand and stared in obsession.
Gu Jingze said as he cooked, “Actually, your manager’s problem is really easy to solve.”
“I can help.”
“Ah, is that so?”
Lin Che quickly said, “Really? That would be great… Gu Jingze, thanks for offering to help.”
Gu Jingze turned to her and smiled plainly, “You know the gratitude I want is never just words.”
Gu Jingze dished up another plate with speed and walked over. He looked at Lin Che and then hugged her from behind.
Lin Che was shocked as she heard Gu Jingze speak next to her ear, “Actually, you look really good in the apron. Since you didn’t finish cooking, you should at least reward me for my hard work.”
He blew at her ear and made Lin Che’s ear itch uncomfortably.
Lin Che replied, “You… What reward do you want?”
Gu Jingze said in a low voice, “I want to see you wearing just this apron…”
“…” Lin Che pictured it in her head; it would be like a dirty magazine. So revealing…
Lin Che immediately resisted, “Get lost, Gu Jingze. You stinky gangster!”
Gu Jingze laughed as she pushed him away. He quickly shunned from her.
However, from the start just now, he had already observed her wearing the apron. He thought that if she walked around the house in just that, she would look great.
Although the image was too embarrassing, he really anticipated it deep down.
Lin Che imagined herself in such a scenario and thought that this man was just too evil!
“Get lost! No way I would do that!”
“Eh, what are you running away for? Come back here,” Gu Jingze pulled Lin Che back. Grabbing her waist, he hoisted her onto the table.
Lin Che shouted. Even as she sat high on the table, her face was still right in front of his chest. Looking up, she could only see his lower jaw.
He lowered his head slightly and looked at her face. He took off his apron and put it on her.
“Okay,” he smiled and looked at her.
That was it?
Lin Che looked down speechlessly at herself and the apron. There was no difference.
She looked weirdly at herself. The man standing in front of her had his hands placed loosely on her waist. His head was lowered as he watched her.
“Ah, you wanted me to wear an apron. I thought you meant just the apron by itself…” Lin Che said.
Gu Jingze answered, “Just wearing an apron meant just letting you wear an apron. That’s it.” He raised his brow suggestively as he looked down at her face, “Why? You look very disappointed. Was this not what you thought?”
As he stared her down like that, Lin Che started to feel embarrassed.
Looking angrily at his mischievous smile, she thought resentfully, She had been tricked by him.
Fine. This man was getting worse. Now, he was starting to play tricks with her!
Lin Che’s face was bright red as she looked at him. Gu Jingze pretended to act innocent, purposely raising his brow and asking, “What were you thinking? Don’t tell me… You were thinking…”
He intentionally looked her up and down and said, “If you must do that, I can accept it too.”
“Go away, I didn’t say I wanted to do that…”
“Come on. I won’t be scared of you wearing that. Try it.”
“Go away. Do you still want to eat? The food is turning cold!”
Lin Che quickly jumped off the table, not letting him provoke her any further.
Gu Jingze smiled as he watched her skip away.
He shook his head and thought, This Lin Che may not know anything, but she’s getting good at running away.
However, after Gu Jingze told her he would help, he really went to search.
The next day, Gu Jingze said to Lin Che, “I found the person you mentioned. She’s in the hospital. We can go over to take a look.”
“Really? That’s great. You’re too good, Gu Jingze.”
Lin Che smiled and hugged his arm as she exclaimed.
At the hospital.
Yu Minmin’s father, Yu Qinglong, was loitering outside.
In the ward, the young master of the Lu family was gazing at his lover and carefully blowing at the porridge to cool it down as he fed her, “Nana, drink this. Be careful as it’s hot.”
“Dear, why is that man still outside? Can’t we chase him away? Who wants to see him? He should just compensate us. What a disgusting man.”
Lu Qinghong gritted his teeth and went out. He kicked Yu Qinglong in the chest, “Get lost. Looking at you disgusts me. Either get your daughter to sell herself or have your wife be a cook for the rest of her life; it’s up to you. Why are you still here?”
“My… My daughter is not coming,” Yu Qinglong’s face was full of suffering.
Ever since that day he looked her up at the office, she disappeared without a trace. He could not find her at all and was completely helpless.
“Then get lost. Nobody wants to see your ugly face. Wait to spend the rest of your life in prison!” Lu Qinghong closed the door. Yu Qinglong stared at the door with melancholy.
The door opened again.
Lu Qinghong turned around and yelled, “Who’s here? Is this a place that you can just enter like this?”
He looked up to see Lin Che in a black jumper and a pair of ripped skinny jeans. She looked dazzling.
Looking at Lin Che’s pretty face, his tone immediately softened, “Eh, what are you doing here?”
Lin Che entered the room and saw a woman lying in bed. Beside her stood a tall and huge man.
Nana saw Lin Che and her eyes suddenly became alert. As if feeling threatened, she quickly sat up.
Gu Jingze followed quietly behind Lin Che as they entered the room, surprising everyone.
Lin Che looked at the woman who did not forget to put makeup even on a hospital bed. She took a few steps forward and asked, “Was it you who caused the Yu family problems?”
Lu Qinghong smiled, “That’s right. Why? Are you here because of that? He hit my horse, so now I want him to pay. That goes without saying, doesn’t it?”
Lin Che could not see a single injury on the woman.
She glanced at the woman and asked, “How much do you want?”
The man said without hesitation, “I want five million.”
“Ha…” Lin Che really had to hand it to them. How brazen. “Since you’re asking for five million, then her injury must be really serious!”
