Season 4

Episode 94

(Was He Lying To Her?)

“Go, go, go. Scoot over there. Get away from me,” Lin Che quickly shouted while looking at the driver in front. There was someone here, yet he still dared to get so close to her.

Gu Jingze brought her to a Western restaurant to eat.

By the time they got out of the car, the bodyguards had already cleared everyone out of the restaurant.

They could only watch from afar as Gu Jingze entered with Lin Che by his side. They were wondering who had gone in. Looking at the guards’ blue badges, someone said that it was the insignia of the Gu family’s bodyguards. These people most likely belonged to the Gu family.

Gu Jingze and Lin Che sat down. He let Lin Che order her favorite dishes. While eating, Lin Che also thought about the best place to visit since he had offered to take her somewhere.

“What do you think about the Great Barrier Reef?” Lin Che suggested.

“Do you want to go there?”

“I’m just thinking about the popular spots I’ve heard about recently. Anyway, it doesn’t matter where we go because I’ve never been anywhere.”

Gu Jingze said, “That place is more suitable for relaxing. We can go there.”

“But I also want to visit Europe. What about Iceland?”

“It’s probably not the best time to go there now. But it’s quite beautiful too.”

“Dear me. Whatever I suggest, you say it’s good. I don’t even know how I’ll choose now.”

“Yes. You said that you’ve never been anywhere, but I’ve been to all of these places. So of course, anywhere’s fine with me.”

“Wow, you’ve been to so many places.” Lin Che looked at him. “Don’t tell me you’ve been all around the world?”

“I’ve gone to some places for work. I’ve also gone overseas for my annual vacation. On top of that, I’ve accompanied my family a couple of times. I can’t say for sure that I’ve been all around the world, but I’ve probably gone to whichever place you know the name of, given how dumb you are.”

“…” Lin Che looked at Gu Jingze enviously. “In that case, forget it. Since you’ve been everywhere, where is the fun with going again? There’s no need for you to especially accompany me to a place you’ve been to before.”

Gu Jingze looked at Lin Che and said, “It’s alright. I’ve been to many places for work, but I’ve actually never really looked around.”

“Why didn’t you take the chance to look around while you were there?”

“Since I went there for work, how could I have the time to stroll around casually?”

Lin Che clicked her tongue twice and looked at Gu Jingze in pity. Despite his immense wealth, he had also missed so many beautiful sights around him because he was busy.

Lin Che was speaking when she heard Gu Jingze’s phone begin to ring.

Gu Jingze held his phone up and looked at the name on the screen. His complexion was the same as always, but he glanced at Lin Che before straightening himself and leaving to receive the call.

Lin Che found it strange. Who exactly was the caller that he had to be so secretive?

It seemed that he very seldom spoke on the phone secretly when she was around. Although many of his work matters were classified information, she could not understand what he was saying and never bothered to either, so he usually did not hide his phone conversations from her.

Gu Jingze, “What’s up?”

On the other end of the line, Lu Chuxia said, “I’m worried about your condition, so I wanted to tell you that I know two pretty good doctors. You should meet them to discuss your condition in detail.”

“I’m eating right now. Let’s talk about this again later.”

“No. Jingze, I’m doing this for your own good too. Also, I still haven’t figured out what exactly is wrong with you. It’s so strange for me to speculate on my own. It’s better to get it examined in detail.”

Gu Jingze stayed silent with the phone in his hand.

He only replied after a fairly long time, “Alright then.”

“That’s great, Jingze. In that case, I’ll see you later.”

Lin Che saw Gu Jingze come back inside and asked him, “What happened?”

Gu Jingze shook his head. “Let’s eat.”

Gu Jingze did not want Lin Che to get involved and so he said nothing.

After the two of them had eaten, before they could come to a conclusion on where exactly to go for a vacation, Gu Jingze said that he had to leave first to handle some matters and instructed his subordinates to send her home.

Lin Che could only nod. Looking at Gu Jingze, she felt that he was really busy recently.

After putting down the phone, Lu Chuxia’s lips instinctively turned up in a hint of a smile.

She had gotten a hold of Gu Jingze’s weakness.

She knew that Gu Jingze would definitely not want outsiders to get wind of this information.

It seemed now that this information could indeed be effectively used against Gu Jingze; sure enough, he was afraid of her because of it.

But this was still not enough.

She needed to properly make use of her hold on him.

Lu Chuxia pondered over it. She definitely could not sully her own hands. But didn’t she just train a lackey recently?

She picked up her phone and fiddled with the screen to call Lin Li.

“Lin Li, can you help me out with something?”

Lin Che watched Gu Jingze leave and returned to the Gu residence alone by car.

She was just looking through her WeChat when she saw that Lin Li had unexpectedly sent her a message.

“Little Sister, the media has been sensationalizing the issue over the past few days. Don’t mind it too much.”

Lin Che thought about it and replied, “It’s fine. I’m comforted by the numerous comments I’ve seen cursing you out.”

Lin Li responded almost immediately, “That’s my job after all. I can’t make decisions when it comes to matters with work. I can only listen to instructions. You know it too. But ultimately, you’re still my sister. I need to warn you about something. It seems that Gu Jingze has been spending a lot of time with another woman.”

She just knew that Lin Li did not harbor good intentions.

“Is that so? Thank you for your warning.” Lin Che did not intend to bother with her any longer.

However, she could not stop Lin Li from proceeding to say, “I just happened to be at the clubhouse at No. 3 Chongmen Road and saw Gu Jingze there with a woman. Tell me, what could he be doing with a woman at the clubhouse at night? Of course, it may just be a social engagement. I hope that I’m just thinking too much.”

Lin Che glared at Lin Li’s message on her phone and turned its display off.

But it was impossible for her not to care. Deep inside, she was still a little concerned.

She held her phone up as her eyes darted around. Finally, she still could not help but call Gu Jingze.

Her call went through very quickly.

Lin Che asked, “Are you still busy?”


“Oh. What are you busy with? Older Brother’s matters?”

“Hm. I have to meet a few people.”

Meanwhile, Gu Jingze had no other intentions and was merely responding to the situation. He looked in front of him at Lu Chuxia with an emotionless expression.

Lin Che was just looking at her phone when she saw that Lin Li had sent her a photo.

In the photo, Gu Jingze and Lu Chuxia were sitting across each other at a round table while drinking something and having some sort of a discussion.

Lin Che’s heart sank immediately.

She just felt pain with every heartbeat. It made it slightly difficult for her to breathe.

With her lips pursed, she returned home and went into her room without a single word. She could not be bothered to speak.

When Gu Jingze arrived home, he asked the maids where the Madam was.

The maid said, “I’m not sure if Madam is feeling unwell. She hasn’t come out at all after going into the bedroom.”

Gu Jingze’s immediately frowned.

He started walking and headed immediately into the bedroom.
