MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(I Helped You And You Want to Kill Me)
Gu Jingze wore a white blouse that was very casual but still looked prim and proper on him.
Yang Lingxin was originally looking around outside when she heard Lin Che answering a call.
She knew that it was definitely not anyone else, so she decided to go closer.
Sure enough, she heard Lin Che ask, “Why are you waiting for me upstairs?”
It made her guess that Gu Jingze was here.
This meant that it would be easier to find Gu Jingze if she wanted to.
She found the Gu family’s guards and then found Gu Jingze.
She told the guards that Lin Che had a message for Gu Jingze.
Although the guards didn’t like her, they knew that she was downstairs with Lin Che just now.
Perhaps Lin Che really had a message to pass to Gu Jingze. Thus, they let her through.
Gu Jingze narrowed his eyes and looked at her. “Lin Che has something?”
Yang Lingxin instantly became shy and nervous as she faced Gu Jingze alone.
Before this, she had always been hoping for a chance like this. Now that she was really in front of Gu Jingze, she was so nervous.
Because she liked him so much. She secretly liked him for so many years and always idolized him. Little did she expect herself to be able to meet her idol one day.
Furthermore, he was so nice and meticulous with Lin Che. It was overwhelmingly sweet.
She looked up at Gu Jingze. “Mr… Mr. Gu, I…”
She wanted to approach him.
Gu Jingze narrowed his eyes and blocked her with one hand.
Yang Lingxin looked at Gu Jingze with big guts.
This was her chance now. It was such a good chance; she was not going to let it slip.
Just behind them was the hotel room and there were only the two of them here.
Whether it was her dressing or makeup now, she completely mimicked Lin Che. It must be because of all these things about Lin Che that he liked her so much. He liked everything about her.
She asked, “I have something to say to Sir. Can I go in?”
“What do you want to say?”
“Can’t we talk inside?”
“You can say it right here.”
“But it’s… it’s… it has to do with Sister Che,” she could only come up with a lie.
“What about Lin Che? You can just say it.”
She lifted her gaze and her eyes glistened as she looked at Gu Jingze. Her hidden intent was already so obvious.
She wanted to be with him. Even if she could only be his hidden lover hiding behind Lin Che, she didn’t mind it.
“Sir… I… Don’t you want me? I can do anything. Sister Che is not coming up now; she still needs to entertain the crew. I can serve Sir here…”
As she spoke, she took two steps forward again.
Gu Jingze looked at her with a cold smile.
“Is this your motive for following Lin Che?”
“No… Sir, I’ve liked you since I was young. I’ve always worshipped you. Even though I haven’t met you at that time, I had already fallen in love with you. Sir, I’m willing to do anything for you. I’m very young; I’m younger than Lin Che and I’m not as soft as her. You can do anything to me, really…”
“Little Xin, is this your motive for following me?”
The voice behind shook Yang Lingxin.
Unknowingly, Lin Che had already appeared behind her.
She clearly saw that they were still chatting just now. How did she…
Yang Lingxin’s expression changed. She looked at Lin Che with a wooden face as she walked towards her. She hastily said, “I… I didn’t mean that, Sister Che.”
She quickly said to Lin Che, “That’s not it. It’s not because of this, Sister Che… It’s my fault. I shouldn’t like Gu Jingze, but I used to admire him a lot. You know it too. I only want to like him quietly from behind and I’ll do the same in the future, really! I’m muddled up today. I’m drunk and that’s why I came here. Sister Che, I’m sorry. Please forgive me."
Lin Che smiled coldly as she approached.
Watching Yang Lingxin approach Lin Che, Gu Jingze came in between them.
Lin Che grabbed Gu Jingze’s arm, shook her head, and then looked up at Yang Lingxin. The hurt of betrayal was written all over her face. “Go, Little Xin. On account that you were implicated and that terrible thing happened to you because of me, I won’t pursue this matter with you. We now owe each other nothing. Go. Go far away and don’t come close to me again!”
“I… No, Sister Che, I don’t want to! I’m not leaving. I only want to follow you. I know my mistakes…”
“Enough. I don’t want to waste my breath on you anymore. Get out of my sight now.”
Lin Che’s voice was suddenly cold.
Yang Lingxin was stunned.
Then, she saw Gu Jingze’s bodyguards walking over from the side.
When they took Yang Lingxin away, she was still pleading.
“Sister Che, I’m really sorry. I’m sorry…”
Lin Che did not turn back. She stood there and closed her eyes.
She felt Gu Jingze’s hand slowly touching her.
She then raised her head plainly.
“It’s okay, I’m fine,” Lin Che smiled. “Actually, I already felt that something was off about her. However, I didn’t want to think so negatively. That was why I didn’t bother about her. What I personally saw today only confirmed my thoughts.”
Gu Jingze said, “I know. People’s hearts are always changing, to begin with. Perhaps she didn’t have this many thoughts in the beginning. It’s just that her mind is shallow so she took the wrong path. Now, you both are no longer indebted to each other. I’ll tell my men to keep her away from you in the future.”
Lin Che nodded. It was a lie to say that she didn’t feel anything in her heart.
However, all the sadness and instability were also returned to calmness now.
He hugged her in his arms and she leaned against him, quietly grazing against his body.
Breathing in his scent, her heart slowly felt more relaxed.
After a while, both of them walked out and were about to leave the place.
Gu Jingze felt that it was a waste. Because Yang Lingxin ruined the mood, Lin Che said that she didn’t want to stay at the hotel anymore. Instead, she wanted to eat spicy crayfish.
Seeing as she wasn’t in a good mood, Gu Jingze could only oblige and so they left the hotel together.
“Where shall we go to eat?” Lin Che was thinking when she suddenly heard the sound of a scooter coming from the opposite direction.
It was Yang Lingxin.
She rode the scooter and dashed forward. She was heading straight for Lin Che.
The bodyguard in front did not anticipate this. However, the bodyguard behind immediately jumped in front to stop her.
The scooter and the bodyguard fell on the ground.
There was a vicious look on Yang Lingxin’s face. She also fell to the ground with the scooter and bodyguard. She looked up and glared murderously at Lin Che.
These meddling bodyguards! These damned bodyguards!
Lin Che looked at Yang Lingxin in disbelief. “I was already giving you a way out by letting you go and saying that I didn’t want to see you. Now, you actually… Yang Lingxin, I saved you and helped you. I’ve always tried to encourage you and nurture you so that you can leave your old life. Your heart turned out to be so wicked. You betrayed me, defamed me, and now you want to… kill me?”
