MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Lu Chuxia Discovered His Illness)
She inched closer and closer to Gu Jingze.
Then, she hugged Gu Jingze’s sturdy back.
However, when Gu Jingze’s body flinched and he suddenly sensed something, he turned around and deftly grabbed Lu Chuxia’s arm in one swift motion before instinctively pushing her forward.
To Lu Chuxia’s surprise, she was thrown onto the ground immediately.
The pain she felt was unbearable. She lifted her head up and looked at Gu Jingze piteously.
“Gu Jingze, what is the meaning of this?!”
Gu Jingze looked at her with indifference. “You should know better than to approach a man from behind.”
Yes, Gu Jingze had received special training. He could definitely sense a surprise attack from behind him.
Lu Chuxia felt even more aggrieved and upset at having failed to hug him. She immediately started crying.
It was as if she was venting all of the grievances she had felt over the past few days.
“Gu Jingze. You- you’re bullying me. What exactly is up with you?”
Gu Jingze frowned. He pulled his handkerchief out of his pocket and bent down to pass it to her.
However, Lu Chuxia took the opportunity to grab his arm and pull him down.
She really could not wait to touch his sturdy chest. She could see him right in front of her and it made her feel an intense urge to throw herself on him.
He had to feel something from a woman’s physical contact.
However, Gu Jingze’s reflexes remained quick. He immediately flipped his body to the side. When Lu Chuxia realized what was happening, he had already fallen beside her.
Gu Jingze scowled. He really felt that Lu Chuxia had gone overboard.
But he looked down only to see that her tears had dripped onto his arm.
Furthermore, a lot of it had dropped on him in such a short time.
Gu Jingze immediately began to feel uncomfortable.
At the side, Lu Chuxia was still unaware. She angrily wiped away her tears and looked at Gu Jingze. “Do you hate me that much? Gu Jingze, what do you not like about me? What’s so good about Lin Che that makes you so protective of her?!”
Because the affected area was too large this time, rashes quickly appeared on Gu Jingze’s arm and were even spreading.
Still wallowing in her sorrow, Lu Chuxia caught a glimpse of the abnormal appearance of his arm.
“Gu Jingze, what’s wrong with you? Your arm…”
“Move aside. Don’t touch me,” Gu Jingze said furiously through gritted teeth.
Lu Chuxia ran up to him again.
He pressed the bell and someone burst in immediately to take Lu Chuxia away.
But Lu Chuxia had already sensed that something was off.
There was something wrong with Gu Jingze… something wrong with those rashes…
Why did he break out in a rash? And why did he react in such a violent manner?
It seemed that Lu Chuxia had finally discovered something…
After stabilizing Gu Jingze’s condition, Chen Yucheng was about to leave when he unexpectedly saw Lu Chuxia still waiting outside.
She was staring fixedly at him and made his expression turn even colder.
Gu Jingze came out of his office and looked at Lu Chuxia.
She began by saying, “Don’t worry. I won’t tell anyone. I didn’t think that there was actually something wrong with your body.”
Gu Jingze gazed at her quietly. His silence was immensely pressurizing.
Lu Chuxia said, “I mean it. I won’t tell anyone else. We’re relatives after all. What’s more is that we’ve known each other ever since we were children. I know that this information will cause a great stir if outsiders hear it. It will pose a threat to your safety in the future as well. So I absolutely won’t tell anyone. Don’t worry about it.”
Quite some time passed before Gu Jingze nodded his head. “Okay. I believe you.”
However, he just glanced at her meaningfully and did nothing else.
After Lu Chuxia left, Chen Yucheng then came into Gu Jingze’s office.
“What are you going to do now?”
Gu Jingze sat there while fiddling with something in his hands. “If only it was someone else. There are so many ways to make a person stay quiet forever.”
“But she’s Lu Chuxia, right?” Of course, Chen Yucheng understood what he meant.
She was Lu Chuxia, the Young Miss of the Lu family and a socialite in C Nation.
She was related to the Gu family by marriage and there was another thing; she had previously saved Gu Jingze’s life.
Gu Jingze said, “We’ll quietly observe the situation and act accordingly. We’ll see how it goes.”
It seemed that this was the only course of action they could take.
Gu Jingze looked at Chen Yucheng. He felt that he seemed slightly different right now.
But ultimately, he would not poke his nose into his subordinate’s private affairs. Thus, he merely smiled and gestured for him to leave.
The film set.
From that day on, Gu Jingyu continued to talk to her as always.
Nothing unusual happened either. On top of that, progress on the movie was quickly progressing and everyone was working like the devil.
But on this day, while Lin Che was waiting for her turn, Yu Minmin suddenly told her, “Your sister signed a contract with a new management company. According to the rumors, this company is planning to promote her vigorously.”
“My sister? Lin Li?”
“Alright then. The entertainment industry has always been unpredictable anyway.”
“Precisely. I didn’t think that anyone would still be willing to support Lin Li. After all, despite all the money spent promoting her, she still didn’t get famous. Coupled with the later cancellation of her engagement with Qin Qing, many companies felt that she no longer had any backing and were even more unwilling to support her. I just heard that she’s been signed on to play the main female lead in a television series. The moment she joined the company, she became the female lead. It’s obvious that they’re really promoting her.”
As a matter of fact, Lin Li’s image was not too good. Although she was beautiful, she did not really have the characteristics of a main female lead.
At times, such qualities were really necessary for this line of work.
It was a fact that Yu Minmin did not look at Lin Li favorably. However, it was also true that some companies did not focus solely on skills in deciding whether or not to promote someone. Sometimes, reasons like this came into play.
Initially, it was not a big deal for Lin Li to have support either.
However, no one expected that the first thing Lin Li would talk about on broadcast would be Lin Che.
Having been prompted, the host asked Lin Li in a straightforward manner about the fact that many people still did not know that Lin Che and Lin Li were biological sisters.
Lin Li said very coolly, “We are. For the past few years, we’ve both been walking our own paths. Lin Che doesn’t want to be tied up in promotions with me either. It’s better not to mention her.”
She spoke as if Lin Che had some grudge against her and was intentionally going against her.
The host asked again, “Are you two on good terms?”
Lin Li said frankly, “Lin Che and I don’t usually stay in contact.”
“Aren’t you biological sisters? Why don’t you maintain contact with each other?”
“My family has three daughters. I’m on better terms with Lin Yu.”
“Oh, that famous television producer Miss Lin Yu, right?”
“As for Lin Che…”
“To be honest, you can’t really consider us biological sisters. Although we’re children from the same father, she was actually born because a maid in our family didn’t know any better and seduced my father. After that, my father decided not to abort the child and even offered to take her in. But this is possibly the reason that she doesn’t get on too well with us.”
Then, the entire Chinese Web went into an uproar.
Topics like ‘Lin Li reveals that Lin Che is an illegitimate daughter, the daughter of a maid’ very quickly became fodder for discussion.
On Yu Minmin’s end, everything suddenly blew up.
At the company, she did not mince her words when she said, “This Lin Li is trying to use Lin Che to create publicity in order to make her comeback. She’s just treating Lin Che as her stepping stone.”
Yang Lingxin could not help but say, “What can we do? Sister Yu, will we let her use Lin Che just like that?”
Yu Minmin said, “Of course not. We can’t let her smear Lin Che’s reputation like this.”
