MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Why Did She Suddenly Come Here)
Lin Che quickly asked the security to let her in. She looked at Yang Lingxin, “What are you doing here?”
Yang Lingxin said, “Sister Che, I feel so guilty about losing your documents.”
“Oh, those. It’s alright. I’ll go ask around if there’s a copy.”
“No, I felt very guilty. So, I went around to look for them. I took the whole night and finally found them in the office.”
Lin Che froze.
Seeing Yang Lingxin work so hard to find the documents, she was now sweating. Lin Che quickly let her in.
“Come in and talk. You’re sweating so much. Come in for a drink.”
Yang Lingxin stepped in. She looked around and although it wasn’t her first time here, she still felt very amazed.
She stepped on the expensive floor, looked at Lin Che, and said, “My shoes are dirty. I need to change them out. This carpet looks exquisite.”
Lin Che looked down, “Nevermind, it’s just a carpet. Isn’t it meant to be stepped on? Come take a seat.”
She looked up and asked the maid to fetch some water.
Yang Lingxin watched the maid bring tea over and was very respectful to Lin Che. She looked so capable.
Yang Lingxin said, “Sister Che, they are so respectful to you.”
Lin Che looked and said, “They are all specially chosen professionals. Of course, they have to be respectful.”
“Are they the Gu family’s servants?”
“Of course not. There is no such thing as a master and servant now. They were hired and are just employees.”
“Oh, right. Look at me still thinking that we’re in ancient times with servants and such. We should call them nannies?”
“Something like that.” But these maids of the Gu family didn’t seem like any others outside. They were much more personal and loyal.
The Gu family must have used some method to make them so loyal.
Winning over people was not something that Lin Che knew how to do.
Just then, Gu Jingze came out from inside.
He only wanted to see who exactly it was that ruined a good moment between them.
But Yang Lingxin caught a glimpse of him and immediately stood up, “Mr. Gu, I’m sorry to disturb you. I came to hand Sister Che some stuff.”
Gu Jingze’s eyes swept across her and he grunted coldly.
Lin Che said, “Oh yes, where are the documents you wanted to give me?”
“Ah, I almost forgot. It’s here. It’s right here,” she said and handed some papers to Lin Che.
Lin Che took the documents and said, “Actually, you didn’t have to try so hard.”
Yang Lingxin said, “No. I believe that if it was me who lost it, I must find it at all cost. Thankfully, I managed to find them in the office.” She looked up at Gu Jingze, “Right, Mr. Gu?”
This time, Gu Jingze only grunted and didn’t answer at all.
Lin Che glanced at Gu Jingze and then quickly said to Yang Lingxin, “Well, yes. Thankfully, you found them. Little Xin, you’re very responsible but there’s no need to be. They were just some lost documents. It’s no big deal.”
“Thank you, Sister Che.”
At this moment, a maid came out and asked Gu Jingze, “Sir, if you want to frame this up, what material would be best for it?”
The maid was holding the calligraphy that Lin Che and Gu Jingze did just now.
Gu Jingze replied, “Just use the best materials to frame it up.”
Yang Lingxin immediately saw the beautiful poem.
‘To win my beloved’s heart, until death doth gray-haired part.’
Although it was just a simple poem, it felt especially romantic coming from Gu Jingze.
Yang Lingxin said, “Ah, Sister Che. Did you buy that?”
Lin Che said, “No, we wrote it just now.”
She looked at Gu Jingze and thought about the things Gu Jingze did to her after they wrote it. Her ears started to burn.
Yang Lingxin heard this and said in surprise, “Wow. Mr. Gu and Sister Che wrote this together?”
The words were so beautiful that she couldn’t help but feel amazed, “Sister Che, your handwriting looks so nice.”
Lin Che waved her hand dismissively and said, “No, he did most of the work.”
Yang Lingxin said, “Mr. Gu is so capable.”
Strangely enough, Gu Jingze didn’t have a tinge of feeling towards her compliment. He looked coldly at her and didn’t say anything.
Lin Che looked at her little girl demeanor and said, “Yes, he’s very capable.”
Yang Lingxin said, “Mr. Gu is so unexpectedly romantic with Sister Che.”
Lin Che said, “No way…”
Yang Lingxin said, “Mr. Gu is really way too good to Sister Che.”
Gu Jingze couldn’t be bothered to continue listening. He looked at her and said, “Lin Che, if there’s nothing else, I’m going in first. The video conference is going to start soon.”
“Oh,” Lin Che said. “Go ahead.”
Yang Lingxin said, “Mr. Gu still has a video conference? Is it a meeting with people from abroad?”
“I guess so. I don’t actually know.”
Lin Che continued, “I’ll get someone to send you home.”
“Ah, no need. I can just get a cab outside.”
“No, it’s so late now. It’s not safe for a girl to take a cab alone.”
“Is it… Seriously, it’s all my fault for taking so long in my search. I didn’t even notice that I came to disturb Sister Che so late at night.”
“It’s alright. You were anxious too. Just don’t do it again next time,” she replied. “You don’t need to panic so much. It’s okay that you lost it. Just be careful next time.”
“Oh my, it’s so late already,” she looked at her watch and said agonizingly. “But I think the gate outside my house must be already locked.”
“Huh? Why won’t your parents open it for you?” Lin Che asked.
Yang Lingxin said, “But we stay at my uncle’s place. We live with him and the gate would be locked at this time. If we wake him up, he’ll definitely be angry… People like us who live under another’s roof have to bear with their temperament too.”
She seemed so pitiful.
Lin Che looked around. She thought of letting her stay for the night, but… this was not her home either.
Lin Che said, “Let me ask.”
She opened the door and asked Gu Jingze. She told him that Yang Lingxin’s house gate was locked and she probably wouldn’t be able to go home.
Gu Jingze looked at Lin Che and pondered for a while.
Lin Che was hesitant, not knowing what was on his mind.
Just then, Gu Jingze looked up and suddenly stood up. He went out and said to the maid, “Help Miss Yang book a room in one of Gu Industries’ hotels and then send her there.”
That was right. She could stay in a hotel.
Lin Che had completely forgotten about this option.
Lin Che said to Yang Lingxin, “Then you can go stay in the hotel. Gu Jingze has already made arrangements for you and we’ll be sending you there.”
Yang Lingxin’s expression changed, but she still looked at Lin Che and said, “Well… Okay. This is too much trouble. I can actually stay at any small hostel too.”
“Forget it. Hostels aren’t safe. Since Gu Jingze has already made arrangements, you should go along with it. It’s the Gu family’s place and it’ll be very safe. It’s not good to let you stay here. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have to go to a hotel.”
