MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(That Dog Called Prince)
Back at home, Lin Che went straight to look for Prince.
She really quite missed Prince after not seeing him for a few days.
But Prince looked like he became slightly fatter again…
Lin Che squeezed Prince’s chubby parts. “Oh right. I brought back presents for everyone but I forgot about yours…”
Gu Jingze asked from behind, “Why would a dog need some present?”
“Of course he does!” Lin Che said as she stood up, “Let’s just take him out and get one for him tomorrow.”
The next morning, Lin Che woke up early. Prince always woke up very early and had already gone out to poop. Lin Che prepared to take Prince out shopping.
Gu Jingze and Lin Che both wore white casual clothes out.
Outside, Lin Che looked down and felt that something was off.
Why did they wear such matching outfits…
However, it looked like both of them merely took out their clothes at random from their wardrobes as they had too many clothes and were also too lazy to pick their clothes. Thus, they casually picked whatever they could grab. Who would have thought that… they would have such chemistry?
Facing the morning sun as they went out together, this feeling was very nice.
Lin Che was only free in the morning and she had to film in the afternoon. Thus, Lin Che treasured her time very much. She held Prince’s leash in one hand and held Gu Jingze’s hand in the other. She raised her head and said, “This is great! Let’s set off! We’ll walk Prince, see what he likes to eat, and buy some for him.”
Lin Che never owned a dog, but she was certain that dogs definitely loved to eat bones. Because of the dog’s health, nobody at home actually gave him too much food. Lin Che thought that it would be fine to let him indulge once in a while. Since he liked to eat something, he should eat it. If a dog only had kibbles to eat his entire life, that would be tragic. It was as boring as a human only eating rice in his entire life.
Gu Jingze only tagged along. The morning sun was glaring and it was rare that the weather was so good. The sun shone on his white clothes against his honey-colored skin. His long legs were exposed and he looked like a refreshing and charming man. It was simply a treat for the eyes.
Lin Che raised her head and looked at Gu Jingze. She felt sweet and her heart was pounding like a young girl’s. She felt even happier as she held his hand.
Gu Jingze seemed to have sensed the woman’s infatuated look. He shook his head speechlessly while his lips couldn’t help but curl up slightly.
Prince ran around. However, at this moment, he seemed to suddenly smell something. Prince dashed over in that direction.
Lin Che was pulled by Prince and also followed him.
“Wow. Why is Prince so excited?”
Lin Che looked at him strangely. Upon raising her head, she saw that she was in front of a market.
The market was bustling in the morning. As the one and only old-fashioned market here, it looked extremely crowded.
Lin Che saw a stall selling pork in the distance. She understood why Prince was so excited.
“Prince is so smart! His sense of smell is so sharp. He could instantly smell something good.”
Gu Jingze asked, “What?”
“That market over there. There’s definitely a lot of meat, bones, chicken liver, and all kinds of innards. Dogs love to eat all these. Hey, since we’re getting him a present, why don’t we buy some chicken liver for him to eat?”
“…” Gu Jingze looked over there and nodded. “Let’s go.”
Upon entering, it was dirty inside and water was everywhere. The floor was obviously dirty. There were many people and produce. All kinds of scent mixed together and it felt extremely messy.”
Lin Che looked up at Gu Jingze. “It’s a little dirty here. Are you okay with it?”
Gu Jingze stuck out like a sore thumb here. One could immediately tell that he was different from these people.
His white clothes were like a unique lotus flower; they looked so clean.
Gu Jingze replied, “It’s okay. What did you say you wanted to buy?”
“Oh. Those. The chicken liver. Come on, it’s over there.”
Lin Che looked up. “Have you ever been to a market?”
“That’s right, you don’t even go to the supermarket that much; what more for a wet market? But the goods in a wet market are very fresh and it’s so lively here. All the aunties get up early to buy groceries and they are all so energetic… Look, there’s chicken liver over there. Let’s go and buy some.”
They reached a stall that had all kinds of meat displayed.
Just as they got there, Prince already couldn’t contain himself. He almost wanted to jump up and eat.
The stall owner looked like an extremely honest aunt. She laughed and said, “Oh my, this dog is so fat but it still wants to eat. Would you two like to buy anything? Young lady, young lad?”
Seeing that the couple was good-looking, the aunt grinned and looked a lot friendlier.
Lin Che said, “We would like some chicken liver for our dog.”
“Oh, okay! How about some chicken bones? They’re especially nice.”
“No thanks, chicken bones are not that good for dogs. My dog is too small. It’s not good for his digestion.”
The aunt tutted. She picked the chicken liver for them as she said, “Really! Dogs these days eat so well. People couldn’t afford to eat this in the past. Now, you’re even buying it specifically for your dog. You two must be always giving it good things to eat. Otherwise, how could it become so fat?”
Lin Che looked up at Gu Jingze beside her.
She pursed her lips and thought, It looks like they always fed Prince dog food that cost at least a thousand yuan a bag at home…
They even had a chef who would specially cook up some vegetables to increase the dog’s nutritional intake…
This box of chicken liver only cost a few yuan and they normally wouldn’t let Prince eat this at home. They were afraid that too much chicken liver would be bad for him.
Lin Che said, “Haha, he has a good life. Thank you, Auntie. Please weigh it.”
The aunt said, “Three yuan and twenty cents. Seeing that you two are so beautiful, three yuan will do!”
“Thank you, Auntie!”
Gu Jingze looked speechlessly at Lin Che. She happily thanked the aunt just because she decreased the cost by twenty cents.
She really took it as a big deal…
The two of them walked out with a snow-white, chubby dog in their arms. They looked completely different from the wet market’s dirty and messy environment.
Gu Jingze said, “You thanked her over twenty cents.”
“Of course! Twenty cents is still money. Also, this is called manners. It is manners to give a discount, so we should also have manners.”
Gu Jingze could only shake his head speechlessly.
The two of them left the market and strolled back home. She said, “Walking a dog is really interesting. Let’s come out more often when we can.”
Gu Jingze replied, “Okay. It’s also good to exercise more.”
Although he personally didn’t find it interesting, seeing Lin Che so interested naturally made him oblige.
The two of them went home with a bag of livers. Lin Che felt that there seemed to be a gradual increase in people walking their dogs outside.
There weren’t that many dogs before.
