MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Stomach Hurts A Little)
Lu Chuxia appeared to have gotten used to the rejection. She waved her hand, “Whatever. You can sit wherever you like.”
There weren’t many people seated in here. Stephen looked at Lin Che and spoke first, “This is my first time seeing Mrs. Gu. I never thought that you would be so pretty. I hope President Gu will bring his beautiful wife out more often.”
Lin Che blushed as she said, “Thanks for your compliment. You’re too kind.”
“Not at all. It’s usually very difficult to invite President Gu to such an occasion. I hope Mrs. Gu will come to these gatherings more often. This way, President Gu will come out more often as well.”
Gu Jingze replied, “I’m just a very boring person. My presence will only leave you with nothing to talk about.”
“Not at all. When President Gu is here, countless beauties will stare at us. President Gu can simply sit here and not utter a single word.”
Gu Jingze laughed, “Mr. Stephen, you’re exaggerating.”
Stephen then began speaking in English, seemingly discussing some serious problem. Lin Che couldn’t understand it and could only stare blankly.
But she didn’t feel bored at all. She only watched them and felt that the English conversation made her feel as if she was watching an American drama. It was so fluent and natural.
And her husband really looked so suave when he conversed in English. When those elegant, thin lips spouted out those twirling words, it didn’t seem odd at all.
She remained watching while Lu Chuxia sat across her and kept gazing at Lin Che.
She watched Lin Che sit beside Gu Jingze very obediently. Lin Che watched Gu Jingze with eyes full of admiration. Lu Chuxia scoffed silently, thinking that she was really such a commoner since she was so easily impressed.
How could Gu Jingze like such a low person? Sooner or later, he would become annoyed with this kind of ignorant woman!
At this moment, refreshments were brought in. Lin Che naturally wouldn’t drink alcohol outside. Otherwise, she would scare people off if she got drunk. Thus, she humbly drank a soft drink when she heard Lu Chuxia say across her, “Don’t you feel bored listening to these men talk about business? It is so boring.”
Lin Che replied, “No, I see it as exposure to me.” She told her directly.
Lu Chuxia secretly despised her. She didn’t expect her to be so insistent without any worry at all. “Really? What’s there to be exposed about? They’re only talking about some international situation and ocean borders.”
Lin Che smiled. She couldn’t be bothered to explain that she didn’t understand all these. However, she simply felt that she could see his charm when she watched him talk and work. Therefore, she didn’t find it boring.
She also knew that Lu Chuxia wanted to scorn her for not knowing anything.
Lin Che knew that she indeed didn’t know anything and there was nothing to hide about.
“It’s fine as long as one person in the family understands. Why would I need to know so much? I have Gu Jingze to earn money and support me in this family. If both people in the house are equally capable, how are they going to live?” Lin Che said.
Lu Chuxia chuckled coldly, seemingly in disagreement.
Gu Jingze heard this, turned to Lin Che, and rubbed her head, “That’s right. You don’t know anything.”
“Yes yes, as long as you don’t despise me, right?”
“There’s nothing to despise you for. Work is already so boring. If I have to talk to you about work at home, that would be even more boring. I like it that you don’t know anything.”
Lin Che heard this and her heart warmed even more.
Although she knew that Gu Jingze was giving her face by especially saying this in front of Lu Chuxia, it still felt very heartwarming.
He stood by her side and spoke up for her. This made her happy.
Lu Chuxia heard this and subtly pursed her lips. She was so angry that she wanted to glare at them.
But seeing the drink in front of Lin Che, she decided to endure it.
Anyway, this pain-in-the-ass was going to be gone in a while. She just needed to endure it a little more.
The row of people continued drinking and eating as they talked. Just then, Lin Che suddenly felt uncomfortable in her stomach.
It seemed to be the same kind of pain as her usual menstrual cramps but now, the pain felt weird.
However, she looked at Gu Jingze and the others. She endured it and didn’t make a sound.
She could only hope that it was temporary and that it would subside.
But not long after, the pain in her stomach grew more intense. It didn’t seem to be getting better. Instead, it seemed to be getting more painful.
The weakness followed after the pain. Lin Che’s face then turned as white as paper.
However, she looked at the people in front of her and continued to endure it. She didn’t want to interrupt Gu Jingze.
But Gu Jingze noticed that something was not right.
The petite woman beside him had gone way too quiet that he began to feel strange. It didn’t fit Lin Che’s character.
Gu Jingze turned to look. Lin Che sat there in a daze. She did not make a sound and her head was hung low. She didn’t look right.
Gu Jingze quickly nudged Lin Che, “What’s wrong?”
Lin Che gradually lifted her head.
Gu Jingze looked at Lin Che’s pale face and his expression instantly changed.
At the side, Lu Chuxia had noticed for a while that Lin Che was feeling uncomfortable.
However, she had expected all of this. She just kept wondering why this Lin Che still did not leave. Why wasn’t it acting up and why was she still there enduring?
Then, Gu Jingze saw it.
Lu Chuxia looked at Gu Jingze’s expression and scoffed coldly.
Gu Jingze immediately grabbed Lin Che’s hand.
He felt the cold sweat on her palm.
He asked, “Lin Che, what’s wrong?”
Lin Che looked up and shook her head. She wanted to say that she was fine but it took great effort to speak. She could only say, “My stomach just hurts a little. Why don’t you guys continue? I’ll head back myself.”
Gu Jingze’s eyes darkened. That cold expression of his was particularly obvious.
He held her hand, “I’ll go back with you.”
Lin Che didn’t want to disturb him. That was why she wanted to go back by herself. “It’s fine. I probably ate something bad. I can go back myself.”
But Gu Jingze already grabbed her hand firmly, not caring about her words. His huge hand pulled Lin Che up.
Lu Chuxia immediately froze.
Meanwhile, Stephen asked in surprise, “President Gu, what is wrong?”
Gu Jingze said directly, “Apologies, my wife is not feeling well. I’m taking her back.”
Stephen was somewhat taken aback, but he looked at Lin Che who indeed didn’t look well at all.
Lu Chuxia then stood up from across them. She looked at Gu Jingze, “It’s so rare for Stephen and Jingze to meet this one time. Let me send Lin Che back. You should stay.”
Lin Che heard this and also looked up at Gu Jingze.
Although she really didn’t feel happy letting Gu Jingze stay here with Lu Chuxia, she really didn’t want to disrupt Gu Jingze’s work.
