MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Bumping Into Someone At The Washroom)
When Lin Che came out of the washroom, she heard everyone still discussing.
“Gu Jingze actually came.”
“Yes. The Gu family just joined the Lu family in marriage. Gu Jingze has to at least give some face to his own sister and interact more with the Lu family.”
“That Lu family’s daughter had her eyes set on him long ago. Didn’t you see how she clung onto him from just now?”
“Ha, that Lu family’s daughter used to be so reserved and proud. She had so many suitors but she didn’t even look at them.”
“She didn’t fancy any of them because she had been waiting for this one. She is being too ambitious to set her sight on Gu Jingze.”
“Who doesn’t want to be Mrs. Gu?”
Lin Che couldn’t help but clench her fists.
Who didn’t want to be Mrs. Gu? Yes, it seemed like Lu Chuxia already had an open secret, but she didn’t seem to care at all.
What about Gu Jingze? Did he care?
Lin Che walked out, so preoccupied in her thoughts that she accidentally bumped into someone.
“Oh my, I’m sorry. Are you okay? Let me see,” Lin Che looked at the old man who appeared to have fallen on the ground. He sat there with pale lips, seemingly in a bad condition.
Lin Che got scared. She quickly asked with a concerned voice, “Ah, sir. Are you ill?”
The old man looked up at Lin Che. The moment he saw her, he went silent.
“You… You are…” He suddenly grabbed Lin Che’s wrist and spoke.
Lin Che was even more taken aback. She quickly said, “Sir, don’t be afraid. I’m not going anywhere. I know it was me who knocked into you. Quick, check if there are any problems on your body.”
He only looked intensely at Lin Che. He narrowed his eyes as if scrutinizing her every facial expression.
Lin Che couldn’t help but feel strange. She looked at the old man, “Sir, are you alright? Are you really hurt somewhere? Tell me, I’ll help you check.”
But the old man held onto Lin Che’s arm and looked at her, “No, no. I’m not hurt.”
Lin Che felt that there was something off about this old man. She looked at him worriedly and asked, “What exactly happened? I think you got hurt, sir.”
He looked at her weirdly for a long time and then seemed to slowly return to normal. He sighed and said to her, “No, no. Little lass, I’m not hurt. I just thought that you look like someone I know. What’s your name?”
Lin Che said, “I’m Lin Che.”
“Oh, Lin Che… That’s a nice name. I’m fine. You don’t have to worry about me,” the old man said.
Lin Che still felt that something was up with him, “Sir, let me help you up. Don’t move.”
She helped him up, looked at him and said, “Sir, if there is something wrong, you must tell me. I’ll take you for treatment. I bumped into you, so I should be responsible.”
The old man smiled and waved his hand dismissively, “I’m really fine. You didn’t bump into me. I was careless too.”
“How can that be? It was still my fault. I didn’t see where I was going. I don’t know what went on in my head, so I wasn’t seeing clearly. Sorry, sir,” Lin Che said apologetically.
He looked at Lin Che, “Most people who bump into someone else would push the blame onto the other party. You are so kind to insist that it’s your responsibility.”
“Because it is my responsibility, to begin with. Sir, where is your family? Shall I help you to look for them?”
“My family is outside. It’s fine, I can go alone,” he looked at Lin Che. “Which family’s daughter are you?
Your surname is Lin? Are you the Lin family’s daughter? That can’t be right. Nobody from the Lin family is here.”
“Sir, I’m not some big shot. I’m just a little transparent thing here for a free meal,” Lin Che helplessly squeezed her brows.
“Huh? A little what? A little transparent thing?”
“Oh, a little transparent thing means that when I walk by, I’m invisible to others because I don’t have a sense of presence,” she explained.
“Haha, there’s such a saying? Little lass, how can you be a little transparent thing? You’re very pretty,” he looked at her eyes and spoke.
Lin Che’s eyes narrowed as she smiled, “Thank you for your compliment. Hehe. But there are plenty of beauties around today. I’d better not indulge myself too much. Otherwise, it won’t be good if I get attacked.”
“You are really interesting, little lass.”
Lin Che asked, “Well, sir, where exactly is your family?”
“Over there. I can go by myself. Please go ahead and enjoy yourself!”
“Alright, then…” she thought for a while and then stopped the maid at the side to ask for a pen and paper.
Then, she wrote her own phone number on it, “Sir, if you can’t find your family or if you feel uncomfortable, please call me.”
She then said to the person beside her, “Help me take care of this man. He fell down when I bumped into him just now. Make sure he’s not hurt.”
The maid at the side looked in horror at the old man, then back at her and nodded profusely.
Lin Che then smiled at the old man and turned around happily to leave.
Gu Jingze grabbed hold of Lin Che as he had been searching for her.
Lin Che got a shock. She looked up to see that it was Gu Jingze and then let out a breath of relief.
Gu Jingze asked, “Where did you run off to, dummy?”
Lin Che said, “I went to the washroom but I bumped into someone outside and that delayed me for a while.”
Gu Jingze heard her say this and then frowned. He lowered his head and looked closely at her, “Who did you bump into? Was there a problem? Where were you hit?”
“No, no, I’m fine.” He made her spin around as he looked intensely at her.
Seeing that Lin Che was indeed fine, he then relaxed.
Lin Che said, “I told you I’m fine.”
Gu Jingze tapped her head, “Don’t get lost next time.”
“Seriously, I’m not a little kid!” Lin Che raises her head in protest.
Gu Jingze thought about how he was so worried during the brief period she left. He always felt that something was bound to happen whenever she was out of his sight.
This kind of feeling was way too frustrating. He knew nothing should be able to happen here since the security was on tight alert and his men were stationed everywhere. However, he still didn’t feel safe in his heart.
He really wanted to simply put this little lass in his pocket.
Just then, Lu Chuxia’s voice could be heard.
“Lin Che, where did you go? Jingze seemed to be very worried about you just now.”
Lin Che looked at the pretentious Lu Chuxia. This time, her attitude was exceptionally good.
So good that it was suspicious.
Lin Che said, “It’s nothing. I was just out for a walk.” She looked coldly at Lu Chuxia, thinking that she was already avoiding her but Lu Chuxia actually still came right up to her. Seriously…
