MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Why Didn’t You Say So, Dummy?)
However, a look of coldness washed over Gu Jingze’s calm face. He looked toward Lu Chuxia, “No need. I’ll send her back.”
It was usually rare to see Stephen and the rest of the bosses. This time, Stephen arranged for them to gather and talk. Lu Chuxia didn’t believe that Gu Jingze was actually going to leave just like that.
Was he not going to give Stephen any face because of this woman?
Lu Chuxia panicked, “No, let me help you take her back. It’s so rare for you to meet Mr. Stephen. If you don’t consider giving others face, maybe you should at least consider giving face to Mr. Stephen.”
But Gu Jingze looked straight at Lu Chuxia, “Which is more important: giving face or the well being of my wife?”
“…” Lu Chuxia was stunned.
Her words were stuck in her mouth and she couldn’t say anything else for a moment.
What he said simply meant that he didn’t care about giving face to anybody.
Gu Jingze pulled Lin Che and took her outside.
Outside, the onlookers were extremely shocked. They watched as Lu Chuxia followed them out while Gu Jingze took Lin Che with him. He carried her in his arms and left without looking back.
Lu Chuxia stood there hatefully, listening to people talking about some rumor that came out of nowhere. They said that Gu Jingze’s woman was ill, so he spoke to Stephen and left Stephen’s private meeting upstairs.
Someone said, “I knew that Gu Jingze was unafraid of anything. He can block out the sky with one hand without caring about giving face to anyone. This time, I’m really seeing it in person.”
“Yes. It must be so blissful to be his woman and be personally carried back by him.”
“Stephen’s private meeting is only attended by a handful of top famous people. Didn’t you see? They didn’t come down at all and went straight up. They’re not showing their faces these few days either. Now, Gu Jingze has left and doesn’t care at all. If it were up to me, I wouldn’t come out of there even if people dragged me out.”
Lu Chuxia heard this and her face colored.
She initially set her sight on this meeting organized by Stephen and predicted that he wouldn’t leave. Little did she expect that he still walked out of it.
And he carried that slut with him.
Back in the room.
Lin Che’s face was pale beyond imagination.
Gu Jingze placed her on the bed and looked at her, “How are you feeling?”
Lin Che shook her head, “I’m okay. It still hurts.”
Gu Jingze said, “I’ll get the doctor.”
“It’s just a stomachache. There’s no need for such trouble. There’s no other feeling too.”
“Of course not,” Gu Jingze replied. Without saying anything else, he quickly asked to call for the doctor.
The doctor very quickly rushed over and carefully assessed Lin Che. He then said, “It’s just a gastrointestinal flora disorder resulting in intestinal colic.”
Gu Jingze asked, “Is it caused by eating something bad?”
“It may have to do with the inability to acclimatize. The cause is not certain either. Anyway, it shouldn’t be a big problem. These are some medicine for the intestine and these are painkillers. She should feel better after taking these. As for the intestinal problem, don’t eat any seafood for the time being. The food here may be mostly seafood, so it might have been because she ate too much seafood.”
Lin Che nodded, “Thank you, doctor.”
Gu Jingze heard this and relaxed a lot more. He looked at Lin Che and let her rest. He took some water for her to take her medicine.
Lin Che raised her head and swallowed the pills. She then looked at Gu Jingze, “See? I told you that it’s no big deal. I can take some medication on my own and I’ll be fine. You didn’t have to come back with me.”
Gu Jingze asked, “Why did you still endure it when you were feeling ill? Tell me, how long were you in pain for?”
Lin Che was immediately exposed. She pursed her lips, lowered her head, put down the cup of water, and mumbled, “It wasn’t that long…”
“Say it. How long did it hurt? Tell me.”
Lin Che looked up and didn’t want him to worry further, “It really wasn’t that long.”
Gu Jingze’s face darkened even more. He glared fiercely at Lin Che, “Are you going to tell me the truth?”
Seeing how Gu Jingze was so persistent, Lin Che quickly said, “Fine, fine. I’ll say it. It really hadn’t been that long. It only started to hurt after I drank those cold drinks. I thought that maybe the drinks were too cold, so they aggravated my stomach.”
At that time, it was at least more than ten minutes.
She actually endured the pain for so long.
Gu Jingze glared at Lin Che, “Why are you so silly? You should have told me the moment it hurt.”
“I… I thought it was no big deal,” Lin Che’s voice lowered.
“It can’t be because of that!” Gu Jingze said fiercely.
Lin Che also lowered her head, “I was just worried that I might disrupt your work. Don’t you see? I really did. I said that it hurt and you brought me back. I think their meeting shouldn’t have ended yet. Why don’t you go back? I’ll get better after taking a rest.”
How could Gu Jingze be willing to do that?!
“You dummy,” he looked pitifully at Lin Che. He thought about how she endured the pain there for such a long time. That was why her palm broke out in cold sweat and her face was as white as paper. His heart ached so badly for her.
If he hadn’t realized, wouldn’t she have continued bearing the pain?
This silly girl.
He placed his arm around Lin Che’s head so that she could rest in his embrace. Her head leaned against his chest. He quietly caressed her silky hair.
“Silly, don’t do that again in the future. Why must you endure it if it hurts?”
“It’s not that painful actually.”
“I know how painful intestinal colic is. You’re still trying to lie to me? What if there was really a problem? What if the pain led to another problem? How would you be able to save yourself? Furthermore, I, Gu Jingze, don’t need my woman to carry any burden for me. If I work so hard and you still have to bear such pain for me, what’s the point of my status and assets then?”
“In any case, don’t do that again, silly.”
If something really happened to her, it would be irreparable then.
Nothing else mattered.
She said, “But is it really okay with that Mr. Stephen? He sounds very capable.”
“He is capable. That’s why we don’t rely on face. Everyone has their own ability and there’s nothing to be worried about. Furthermore, I’ve always been like this. Everybody knows how much I dislike gatherings. I was already giving them face by showing up. I simply left halfway.”
Alright… He was the capable one.
Gu Jingze asked, “Does your stomach still hurt?”
Lin Che was then reminded of it.
It was extremely painful just now, but after taking the medicine and resting, she felt a lot better.
She replied, “Much better.”
Gu Jingze then placed her head on his lap and started rubbing her stomach.
Just then, outside.
Lu Chuxia arrived.
She looked at the attendant and asked, “Jingze and Lin Che are inside?”
The attendant said, “Yes.”
“Oh, I’m here to pay a visit. Is your Madam alright?”
“She is fine.”
“I’d like to see Lin Che,” she said.
The attendant could only say, “Let me check with Sir.”
She pushed open the door as Lu Chuxia looked angrily at these Gu family attendants. Every single one of them was so block-headed. They dared to be so disrespectful to her and this made her so mad. Although they only listened to the Gu family’s instructions and were being professional, they weren’t giving face to her at all.
When the attendant pushed open the door, Lu Chuxia saw Gu Jingze hugging Lin Che inside.
