MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(I’ll Wait For You Upstairs)
The sound of Gu Jingze’s name made Lin Che who was just stuffing her mouth with food instantly spit everything out.
The person beside her was shocked. Seeing Lin Che gasp heavily, they quickly asked, “What happened? What happened? Lin Che, did you choke?”
They quickly gave Lin Che water and she gulped it down.
She slowly calmed down.
What was Gu Jingze doing here out of the blue?
Lin Che looked up and saw that the crew was still looking at her. She quickly said, “It’s fine, it’s fine. I accidentally choked.”
Only Yang Lingxin who was at the side changed her expression as she watched Lin Che.
But Gu Jingze was already walking in.
They could see that he was also here to have dinner with others. He wouldn’t usually come to such places, right? No. He usually wouldn’t even entertain clients with dinners.
He had never done things like dine with clients and entertain them.
So why did he suddenly show up here today?
At this moment, the people around the table started to talk among themselves.
“That must be Gu Jingze.”
“He looks so poised.”
“But I heard that he has twelve top-notch bodyguards under his hand. Why aren’t they here with him today?”
“We’re quite lucky today, aren’t we? It’s our first gathering and we actually bumped into Gu Jingze.”
Just then, as Gu Jingze walked up along the stairs, his eyes fell directly on them.
His gaze accurately and unmistakably landed on Lin Che.
Lin Che almost fell. She quickly propped herself up against the table. She gazed back at him and squinted at him.
What was he doing here? Why didn’t he give a heads up?
Now, she couldn’t overcome her surprise.
When she looked at him, her head felt giddy.
“Hey, why is Gu Jingze looking over here?”
“He’s definitely not looking at us.”
“Exactly. If he wanted to, he must be looking at Lin Che.”
“Well, Lin Che is so pretty.”
He was really looking at her.
Lin Che’s thoughts ran in her head. She blushed and said, “Alright, alright, don’t talk nonsense. There’s nothing good to see about him. Eat ****.”
The people at the table said, “Why not? That is the wealthiest person in C Nation. It’s a rare sight!”
“Exactly exactly. You have Situ Qiong so you don’t care, but we’ve never seen how a wealthy person looked like.”
“…” There was nothing else she could say.
Nevermind, let them stare for all they want. She was not going to care.
Thankfully, Gu Jingze and his gang very quickly disappeared upstairs.
After Gu Jingze left, everyone seemed to still be in shock and were chatting nonstop. However, their voices gradually grew quiet.
Lin Che heaved a sigh of relief and then heard her phone vibrate.
She immediately had a bad feeling. When she took out her phone to see…
It was indeed from Gu Jingze.
It was a simple message, “Have a good dinner. Don’t let your mind wander.”
Lin Che replied to him exasperatedly, “Who asked you to come?! You didn’t even tell me!”
Within a second, her phone chimed again.
This time, it was a phone call.
Looking at the words on the screen, she hastily smiled to the rest, “It’s a call from the company. You guys go ahead; I need to answer this.”
After that, she ran to the back, made sure that there was no one around, and picked up the phone.
“Boss, what are you doing?!”
“I only thought about it when you mentioned it. I indeed forgot to tell you. It’s my bad and that’s why I’m telling you right now.”
He was definitely playing with her. What was the point of telling her now? What was the point?
“Y-Y-You… Why are you here?”
“Why did you come all the way here to eat?”
“It was just nice that someone invited me to dinner. I recalled that you were also here, so I thought that I might as well come.”
Fine. A big CEO was really so casual.
Lin Che said, “Forget it, forget it. Go eat your dinner and I’ll eat mine. We shall not disturb each other.”
“Okay, enjoy your dinner and recharge yourself. Later…”
Lin Che grew cautious and had a feeling that he had something up his sleeves.
“Later, I’ll wait for you upstairs.”
What? “Why would you wait for me upstairs?!”
Gu Jingze said, “Room number 1088.”
After that, he hung up.
Lin Che froze and didn’t react for a long time.
When she finally understood what he meant, she was speechless.
He… wanted to…
Was he mad? They had such a big house, but he came to the hotel…
It was rather crazy, but also… rather exciting.
Lin Che blushed. Thinking of how Gu Jingze was upstairs having dinner, she somehow could not calm her heart down.
When she returned to her seat, she was radiating. The rest who looked at her asked, “Lin Che, was that from the company? Why do you look so radiant?”
Lin Che speechlessly said, “How am I radiant? Go go go. Go eat your dinner.”
Everybody laughed and didn’t pry in the artist’s personal life. They knew that all these celebrities wanted to enjoy the glory on stage and face their own personal affairs at the same time. Otherwise, a small matter just like the contract termination issue would blow up beyond control.
Thus, artistes were all very cautious when it came to their privacy.
As for the crew who knew that many artists were very secretive, they also had their traditions. One of them was that they absolutely would not leak any private information about the artist to the public. Otherwise, they would be breaking the rules of the industry.
This was also considered one of the rules in the industry.
After a while, everyone had quite a bit to drink and were more open in their conversation.
The director looked at Lin Che and said, “Lin Che, your acting skills are really very good. You are much better than Qin Wanwan. You both are very similar and she is not bad looking, but her acting skills can’t match up to yours.”
Lin Che didn’t know what to say and could only listen quietly.
The director said, “I wanted to pick you that day, but it’s a pity that your company stopped me. Now, it is all good. We are still destined to work together in the end. It looks like this is Heaven’s will. Although there were some obstacles, this role was destined to be yours.”
Lin Che smiled, “I’m also very honored.”
“No, no. Your love for this little novel will definitely make you portray the character better. We have great faith in you.”
“Thank you all for trusting me.”
As they chatted, it was already getting late.
Lin Che was worried that Gu Jingze would become anxious.
She took out her phone and secretly sent him a message to say that she would be a little late.
Upstairs, Gu Jingze finished his dinner long ago and was waiting for her. He read his book and sat there, looking at the night scene below.
Not long after, there was a knock on the door.
He smiled and walked over.
However, when he opened the door, his eyes narrowed.
The woman in front of his eyes was not Lin Che.
Gu Jingze looked at Yang Lingxin in front of him.
Yang Lingxin looked at Gu Jingze passionately.
