MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Lu Chuxia Found Out That She Had Not Told Gu Jingyu)
Of course, Lin Li wanted to be famous. Everyone did.
Once again, the woman said in an extremely arrogant manner, “I’ll make you even more famous than Lin Che.”
Even more famous than Lin Che?
Lin Li ground her teeth slightly. “I do.”
The corners of the woman’s lips turned up. “Then that’s enough. You’re now signed with the company I’ve designated. Just wait. It won’t be long before you get famous for real!”
The woman speaking to Lin Li was precisely Lu Chuxia.
Having resolved this issue, Lu Chuxia called Gu Jingyu very soon after.
“Chuxia? Busy bee, what’s up?
“It’s like this. Do you want another investor for your movie?”
“What do you mean? Do you want to invest in my movie?”
“Yes. The Lu family and the Gu family are very close right now. We’re basically relatives. Can’t I invest in your movie?”
“Forget it. I don’t need any more investors. I already have sufficient funding.”
“How heartless. Then, I’ll go and visit you now. I’ve had so much free time recently that I’m bored. I really want to see if there’s anything I can invest in.”
“Do whatever you want.”
Lu Chuxia huffed. She drove her flashy car towards the film set.
The film set.
Lin Che had just completed a scene. After coming down, Song Shuhai looked at her from the side. “Your acting is really not bad.”
Lin Che smiled and asked, “Is Sister Shuhai praising me? Thank you.”
“No, I’m serious. In our line of work, females have always been worse actors than males. There’s probably too much of a focus on how they look, so those who look special and are popular get film contracts. Some of them are really pretty bad at acting, but on the contrary, your acting is very good.”
Song Shuhai meant what she had said. As she watched Lin Che act, she felt that she was very professional. In addition, she also got into character very quickly, so she often succeeded in one take.
Lin Che smiled and said, “It’s probably because I really learned diligently while I was in school. At that time, no one booked me to act in anything, so I worked hard in school every day. Since I worked hard, I’m bound to have some skills.”
She was not like other celebrities who began taking on acting jobs in school one after another, causing them to miss school often.
She had not signed any acting contract and could only be the occasional extra. She had considered it practice for the future.
At this moment, Gu Jingyu walked out from inside. With his eyes on Lin Che, he handed her a bottle of water.
Lin Che thanked him and was just about to drink it directly.
Gu Jingyu said incredulously, “Hey, hey. Don’t you need a straw? Seriously. You just had your lipstick done. Aren’t you afraid that it’ll come off? You’ll have to do it again.”
“Oh. I forgot.”
Gu Jingyu said, “You’re really too careless.”
The two of them often joked around on set. The others were used to it and no longer paid attention to them.
After all, they were on good terms.
Just then, Lu Chuxia arrived.
Upon her arrival, she immediately saw Lin Che chatting cheerfully with Gu Jingyu.
It was very rare for Gu Jingyu to smile at someone like that. The indulging expression on his face was particularly offending to her eyes.
Lu Chuxia could not help but find it surprising. Lin Che was truly impressive. She had staked her claim on the older brother and was extending it to the younger brother too.
Standing there, Lu Chuxia looked on unwaveringly before suddenly calling out, “Jingyu.”
When a few of the people there heard someone calling him, they turned around in unison.
They instinctively froze when they saw Lu Chuxia.
On the contrary, Gu Jingyu paid no attention to her. He turned his head and looked at Lu Chuxia. Because she had informed him of her visit earlier, he simply said, “My friend is here. Wait for me first. I’ll go and speak to her.”
No one noticed Lin Che’s expression stiffen when she looked in that direction.
Lu Chuxia was actually here…
Why did she come here?
Gu Jingyu walked to her at a snail’s pace as Lin Che looked on through squinted eyes from behind him.
Beside her, someone asked curiously, “Who’s that? The woman who came to look for Jingyu.”
Everyone was particularly interested in the fact that a woman had come to visit Gu Jingyu.
Song Shuhai had been in the industry for a long time. She took a look and broke into a smile. Then, she told everyone, “That’s Lu Chuxia.”
“Ah, Sister Shuhai, how did you know?”
“Everyone knows her. A person like that is definitely way more impressive than we are. She’s known as the top socialite in C Nation. Do you know what that means? It means that she’s a rich young heiress and furthermore a well-known beauty in high society. The people who admire her are not people like our fans, but sons of high-ranking government officials and eminent persons.”
“Ah. So she’s the top socialite. That’s impressive.”
“Of course. Her surname is Lu. The Lu family is not just any family in C Nation. How many shopping malls does her family own? That’s why she’s so arrogant.”
“Wow. Why was she looking for Jingyu? Could it be that the two families are seeking an alliance by marriage or something?”
“I don’t know about that. But it’s normal for Gu Jingyu to be acquainted with her anyway. After all, Gu Jingyu isn’t an ordinary person either.”
Lin Che stayed silently at the side. Song Shuhai looked at her. “You’re so close to Gu Jingyu. Do you happen to know the inside story?”
Lin Che said, “I don’t know. Perhaps they’ve known each other since they were kids.”
“Oh, that’s possible too.”
Lin Che slowly lifted her head only to see Lu Chuxia staring daggers at her.
Naturally, no one paid attention to the strange expression on Lin Che’s face. Everyone’s eyes were only on Gu Jingyu. Someone said in jealousy, “This woman isn’t that pretty though.”
“But she’s the top socialite.”
“Yes. She even drives a Porsche.”
“She just has an extraordinary aura. She’s definitely different from us.”
Gu Jingyu looked at Lu Chuxia. “You actually came. I thought you were joking.”
Lu Chuxia glanced at Lin Che behind him and said, “You were chatting with someone? That’s really rare.”
Gu Jingyu turned his head to look. He smiled and said, “Oh. That’s my friend.”
Lu Chuxia eyed Gu Jingyu suspiciously. “Hey. Could it be that you still don’t know who she is?”
Gu Jingyu was a little confused. “What do you mean by that?”
Lu Chuxia paused. She looked at Gu Jingyu and seemed to understand what was going on.
So Gu Jingyu was still unaware that Lin Che was Gu Jingze’s wife.
It was understandable since Gu Jingyu had not been home for many years.
But Lin Che was too manipulative. How could she tantalize both brothers like this?
Hmph. She was truly a bad woman.
Lu Chuxia began chatting leisurely with him. They moved to the side together but she was scheming something in her mind.
Lin Che filmed for a long time. It was already eight o’clock at night when she finished filming her scenes. She was about to go out for dinner with the rest when Lu Chuxia came up to her.
“Lin Che, is there something you have to discuss alone with me?”
Lin Che looked at Lu Chuxia in shock. “What do you want to talk about?”
“What do you think?” Lu Chuxia looked at Yu Minmin and the others following behind her. She then said, “Shouldn’t you ask these irrelevant people to leave?”
Lin Che tugged at Yu Minmin. “This is my manager and friend. Just say whatever you have to say. She’s not going anywhere.”
Yu Minmin stood there and looked at Lu Chuxia. She was similarly not afraid at all.
Lu Chuxia scoffed and looked scornfully at Yu Minmin.
Then, she said to Lin Che. “It’s nothing really. I’m just very surprised that you haven’t told Gu Jingyu that you’re his sister-in-law.”
Lin Che looked at Lu Chuxia. “What are you trying to do? Just get straight to the point.”
