Season 5

Episode 54

(The Man Beside Her Was Her Asset)

After some time, Lin Che finally arrived.

“Lin Che is here.”


“She just came in through the entrance with Gu Jingze.”

Lin Che waited for Gu Jingze at the entrance before they came in together.

Everyone heard about this Lin Che person, but never actually saw Lin Che in real life.

Everyone knew that those tabloids on TV were mostly fake and orchestrated. A person’s true character could only be seen in real life.

Thus, when everyone heard that Lin Che was actually participating in the WW banquet, their interests piqued.

This woman was also arrogant enough to bring Gu Jingze with her.

Gu Jingze’s tall figure walked in and his sharp eyes swept across the entire floor. Those untainted eyes were really so darn attractive.

Everyone was amazed by his appearance and their sighs were endless.

“It’s Gu Jingze.”

“It really is him!”

“Can I take a photo?”

“Take a photo? Are you looking for death?”

“Tsk, tsk. Looks at the woman beside him.”

Following that, jealous eyes all turned to Lin Che.

She wore a simple pencil skirt and didn’t wear any special accessories. She was dressed in silvery-gray and looked extremely groomed and gracious. Although her simple outfit was not outstanding, it really showed her figure.

Nobody could find faults with Lin Che. She looked a lot prettier in real life and nobody could see any plastic surgery scars. Thus, everyone could only scoff and say, “She doesn’t have anything more than we do. How did Gu Jingze take a liking to her?”

“Maybe she is good in bed.”

This was the first time Lin Che saw so many women gathered in one place. Looking at all the different pairs of eyes, she already thought to herself that three women were enough to cause drama. There were so many women here… There really was a sense of danger today.

However, under the light, these eyes were all staring lustfully at her man.

Lin Che felt as if she was being torn apart by all their jealous eyes.

Lin Che almost wanted to let go of Gu Jingze’s waist.

But when she wanted to move, Gu Jingze took her hand and firmly placed it in the hook of his arm. He was not letting her move.

“Lin Che, you’re here,” a familiar voice sounded from above.

Lin Che looked up to see Lu Qinyu standing there.

Lin Che froze.

Lu Qinyu smiled and said, “Come on up. There are seats here.”

Lin Che said, “Okay, Uncle Lu.”

Lu Qinyu was seated upstairs. Gu Jingze looked up and narrowed his eyes. Then, he turned to Lin Che and frowned subtly.

Lin Che was also puzzled. “Why is Uncle Lu here?”

Gu Jingze took her in and spoke as they walked, “Actually, I found out about some things recently, but I haven’t had the chance to tell you.”

“What is it?”

Gu Jingze stopped to look at Lin Che, “Lin Che, your mother’s name is Su Cen, right?”

“That’s right.” But what did that have to do with Old Man Lu?

Gu Jingze said, “I found out that Old Man Lu once stayed at your mother’s old home before. Remember when we visited Granny and saw a photo of your mother with several people?”

“Yes. Don’t tell me that those people…”

“One of them was Old Man Lu.”


Gu Jingze said, “He used to be your mother’s teacher. He recommended her to attend university in B City and she entered the university that he taught at.”

Lin Che never would have guessed that there could be such a fate.

“I’ve never heard my mother talk about how she came to B City. However, I was still small at that time and Mother would never tell me things like that.”

“That’s right. Your mother used to be Old Man Lu’s protégé, but she left later on.”

“She must have met my dad after that and then began her torturous life…” Lin Che thought about it and really felt the injustice for her mother.

“But I have to remind you of one thing,” Gu Jingze said properly.

Hearing him sound strict, Lin Che stopped and looked at him. “What?”

“Your mother’s relationship with Old Man Lu in the past may not have been ordinary.”

Lin Che froze.

Gu Jingze held her hand and waited for her reaction.

Gu Jingze then said slowly, “This is not something I can confirm. Neither have I investigated it in detail.”

After all, it didn’t feel right to go overboard with the investigation of Lin Che’s mother.

Lin Che silently looked ahead, “So, Old Man Lu is fond of me because he knows about my mother?”

“He doesn’t know.”

Lin Che looked up.

Gu Jingze said, “I think it’s better if you tell Old Man Lu yourself.”

After all, he thought it wasn’t right for him to tell Old Man Lu about Lin Che’s mother.

Gu Jingze once again held Lin Che’s hand up, “Come on. Let’s go up.”


Lin Che was still a little absentminded. When she saw Old Man Lu welcoming her, she still hadn’t reacted.

“Little Che, you’re here. Come sit over here.”

Lu Beichen was also there. He looked at Lin Che and nodded.

After the formalities, Gu Jingze pressed Lin Che down to sit there.

She raised her head and looked at Lu Qinyu.

She couldn’t imagine that her mother and this man in front of her could have a past relationship between them.

Lu Beichen leaned against his seat and said, “These women are still so boring. I really don’t know why we come here.”

Lu Qinyu replied, “Our Lu family developed this island and we also recruited them to pick this place. Of course, we have to show our support.”

Lin Che said in shock, “This belongs to the Lu family?”

Lu Beichen said indignantly, “We didn’t buy this island to hold such boring events.”

“Yes, it was for your damn fishing boats.”

Lin Che didn’t quite understand.

Lu Qinyu explained to Lin Che gently, “This lad can’t do things correctly in all these years. He secretly bought this small island and many fishing boats to fish here. After I found out about it, we then tidied up this place and developed it.”

Lin Che thought speechlessly, They could secretly buy islands?

When these wealthy people were stubborn, they could really leave one speechless.

Lu Beichen pursed his lips and took a deep breath.

On the side, Gu Jingze said, “Brother Beichen is really so carefree and leisurely.”

Lu Beichen retorted, “Did you think everybody is a workaholic like you? Spending my days fishing is my wish over these years. Sigh, it’s too bad the old man put his foot down on me. Now, I even have to waste my time coming here and watch these pretentious women on my happy grounds. Do you think I can still be happy?”

Gu Jingze chuckled lightly, “To me, making money is already a hobby.”

Lu Beichen looked at Lin Che, “I really don’t know why you married him.”

Lin Che laughed, “Nevermind. I can just see his face. Why would I care what he does?”

“Fine… You’re right.”

Lu Beichen now had a pretty good impression of Lin Che. After getting to know her better, he was finally not so cautious and was willing to speak casually with her.
