MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(It’s So Tough Being Your Employee)
“…” Lin Che’s face turned even redder. “Jingyan, you’re way too perverted!”
Just then, Gu Jingze walked in. “You’re smiling so happily. What are you talking about?”
“We’re talking about going bowling together. Come with us, Second Brother. We’re going to the bowling alley at the newly-opened mall.”
Gu Jingze said, “Alright.”
He thought that going out was a good idea too. It would improve her mood.
Even though the two of them trusted each other, they still felt uncomfortable after all.
He himself felt unsettled inside, let alone Lin Che.
Hearing this, Gu Jingyan sprang up and immediately went to get the car.
At the same time, she said to Lin Che, “See? If Sister-In-Law is with me, Second Brother will go anywhere with us.”
“What do you mean…” Lin Che asked.
“In the past, he would not even agree to go out for a meal, much less go bowling. He would always say without hesitation that he had no time. When did he ever go out alone for some fun?”
Alright then. She was quite right. He did seem to be a bit of a loner.
But when he was with her, he did indeed go out often.
Although it was always because she insisted on going out with him.
Gu Jingyan also called Lu Beichen to ask if he wanted to go.
Hearing this, Lu Beichen reluctantly agreed.
Gu Jingyan spoke into the phone. “Why? You don’t have to go if you don’t want to. Why do you seem so troubled?”
Worried that they might start arguing again, Lin Che hastily grabbed at the phone and said, “Alright, alright. He said he’s going. The more the merrier.”
Only then did Gu Jingyan put down the phone.
Gu Jingyan hooked her arm through Lin Che’s while Gu Jingze followed behind them. The three of them walked out together and happened to bump into Mu Wanqing.
“Hey, are you guys going out?”
“Hn. Mother, we’re going out for a bit.”
Mu Wanqing looked at them through narrowed eyes. In her heart, she was very happy.
Of course, the fact that they were on such good terms lifted her spirits tremendously.
When they reached the entrance of the Gu residence, Lu Beichen was coincidentally driving towards them.
Gu Jingyan said, “Come on, let’s take that car together. It’s bigger since it’s an SUV. Using Second Brother’s car would be too troublesome. If the people who recognize the car see that Second Brother is here, they will definitely gather around us. It’s better for us to keep a low profile while we’re having fun outside.”
Thus, the three of them got into Lu Beichen’s car.
Lu Beichen asked, “Why did you want to go there?”
Gu Jingyan said, “It’s a newly-opened bowling alley. I haven’t gone bowling for a long time, so I wanted to take a look. Why? Are you busy? If you’re too busy, you can leave now.”
“When did I say that I was busy?” Lu Beichen looked at Gu Jingyan. Why did this woman love picking a fight?
Gu Jingyan said, “It’s understandable for President Lu to be so busy. I’m simply being considerate of you.”
Lu Beichen glared at her. “I think that you’re just becoming more dissatisfied with me lately.”
Lin Che asked, “Classmate Lu, are you sure that you can drive properly? Otherwise… let’s change the driver.”
Lu Beichen only seemed to remember that there were still two people at the back when he looked behind.
“Relax. If not for my magnanimity, she would have angered me to death a long time ago.”
Lin Che could not believe it. “What you’re doing is wrong.”
“What?” Lu Beichen said.
Lin Che said, “You can’t argue with a woman when she’s speaking. You should just go along with her words and say yes, yes, yes, you’re right. Then she won’t continue speaking. Look at you. She says one sentence and you retort with another. When you’re done, she retorts again. Of course, you’ll end up arguing.”
Lin Che lifted her head and said, “Right, Gu Jingze?”
Gu Jingze replied, “Hn…”
Lu Beichen asked, “Haven’t you ever heard Gu Jingze snap back at you?”
Lu Beichen quickly turned around to look at them again. Then, he suddenly seemed to recall something and said, “Oh. He doesn’t like talking in the first place. Let me tell you. It’s not that he doesn’t retort. He’s just lazy to retort. You’ve been deceived, you know that?”
Gu Jingze folded his arms. “It’s true that I never retort.”
Gu Jingyan said, “Eh? Really?”
“Because what I say is always right. There’s no way that she can retort.”
Lin Che looked at this arrogant man in disbelief.
When she thought about it, he was right. When she was with him, she was constantly surprised. Furthermore, she was so infatuated with him. Seeing that he could do everything and knew so much more than she did, she could only worship him. What was there to retort?
She knew nothing and had always agreed with whatever he said.
What’s more was that Gu Jingze was so handsome… no matter how much she wanted to argue with him, she would give up when she saw her face. Forget it, forget it. Since he was so handsome anyway, she would agree with whatever he said…
Lu Beichen simply felt that he had watched an entire display of affection.
He turned to look at Gu Jingyan…
Forget it. She was always able to find faults with him. She was definitely not the gentle kind of woman; she never was, not in the past, not at the present, and much less in the future.
After all, perhaps she had already been spoiled rotten by everyone since her school days.
He could still remember her first day at school back then. Everyone had said that a young lady from the Gu family had arrived. With her bodyguards in tow and a luxury car to send her anywhere she wanted, she had a truly imposing manner.
Subsequently, Gu Jingyan became a well-known figure in school.
However, at the time, Lu Beichen had actually thought that she was just a pretty face. He did not expect her to top all the subjects during the first round of exams and become the top scorer of the entire school.
Initially, Lu Beichen had not cared much about his grades. But at the time, he really felt that he had been completely humiliated, because…
Everyone had said, “Beichen, you’re the only one in our school who can go up against her. Your family background can match up to hers and so can your grades. If you can’t beat her, the rest of us can forget about ousting her.”
Unfortunately, the more he tried to catch up with her, the stronger she became in the face of adversity. It was no wonder that he constantly found her unpleasant to the eye. There was never anything good about her. She was always so arrogant, did not seem like a woman at all, and never showed weakness.
She was like this even in bed.
Gu Jingyan said, “Forget it, Sister-In-Law. Do you think everyone is as understanding and reasonable as my Second Brother? He won’t listen to what I say in this lifetime.”
“Why don’t you listen to what I say? Why do I have to be the one to listen to what you say?”
“Because what I say is right,” Gu Jingyan said.
“Ha, what part of what you said was right?” Lu Beichen asked.
Gu Jingyan replied, “Regarding the company that is going to be listed, I said that following my proposal would definitely give it the top prize and push it to the top of the exchange. You didn’t believe me and even rebuked me in front of the board of directors.”
“Because your idea was not comprehensive at all. Did I even rebuke you? I just expressed my own opinion. Is that considered rebuking you?”
“Of course it is. You can speak to me privately if you have any problems with me. Between the two of us, one is the President, and the other is the Vice-President. Do you think it looked good on us when we started arguing in front of so many people?”
Behind them, Lin Che listened speechlessly. These two were way too persistent in their ways.
Lin Che could imagine two members of the company’s senior management arguing in the conference room. Everyone would probably not dare to interrupt them and could probably only watch on as they argued, not knowing how to break up the fight.
Especially when the two of them were a married couple.
