MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(This Is Why Lin Che Gets Treated So Well)
Yu Minmin said, “But of course, it’s Andy’s creation. Your value is also beyond words now. Not just anybody can hire Andy. You’d need to be a big shot to even know his handwriting.”
Everyone began to look over fervently. Lin Che didn’t notice at the beginning, but Gu Jingze was suddenly here.
The people around her already started to notice Gu Jingze’s silhouette.
When he entered, Lin Che was still texting on WeChat.
As for Mo Huiling, she immediately saw Gu Jingze.
However, under her hopeful eyes, Gu Jingze instinctively walked to stand behind Lin Che.
He smiled as he looked at Lin Che and then he reached out and grabbed the phone in her hands.
Lin Che got scared. Why would anyone try to steal a phone here?!
When she looked up, Gu Jingze fiddled with the phone and looked at her as he asked, “Why were you so immersed in using your phone?”
Gu Jingze raised a brow. His enchanting eyes were completely black.
Lin Che stood up and complained, “Why did you snatch my phone? Seriously, give it back!”
“Why? You’re so anxious to get it back. Are you hiding something that I can’t see inside?”
“Of course not!”
Gu Jingze looked at the phone.
Lin Che quickly tried to snatch it back.
She just told Yu Minmin…
Oh my, this was too embarrassing.
Gu Jingze started reading the content on the screen.
It was her conversation with Yu Minmin.
Yu Minmin said, “Your Gu Jingze treats you way too well. Where can we find such a good man on Earth?”
Lin Che’s reply was, “Hehe. Well, he is wealthy, strong and highly attractive. Of course, I’m clinging onto him and not letting go.”
It was simply…
Seeing Gu Jingze’s gaze deepen as he looked blankly back at Lin Che, her face immediately blushed.
“Give it back! I… I was joking just now.”
Gu Jingze didn’t try to avoid her anymore and handed the phone back to her. “On account that you have considerably good taste… I’m not going to say anything. Next time, this kind of thing is better kept to ourselves. Don’t go around showing off.”
Idiot. Who was showing off? She was just joking.
However… It was indeed rather true…
Gu Jingze said, “Alright, let’s go. Eric is already here. He’s inside.”
Lin Che immediately replied, “O-oh okay, let’s go.”
Mo Huiling hastily blocked them. “Hey, Jingze…”
“You’re here too.” Gu Jingze glanced at her nonchalantly. His expression was distant and unfamiliar. It was completely different from just a few moments ago. After that, he put an arm around Lin Che’s waist and walked away.
Mo Huiling was left behind. She watched Gu Jingze leave. He was just as dazzling as when he came in.
Around her, envious voices began to chime.
“Oh my, Gu Jingze and Lin Che are so loving.”
“Did I see wrongly just now? Gu Jingze even smiled at Lin Che.”
“Yes. Gu Jingze doesn’t look that scary anymore.”
“That is only to Lin Che. Don’t even think that you would have a turn.”
Mo Huiling’s face darkened further.
Mother Mo turned behind and glared angrily at the group of infatuated women. She tugged Mo Huiling and said, “Gu Jingze is too much for treating you this way. What is up with you? You’ve been staying with him for so long already…”
“Stop it, stop it. Stop saying anything else. Wait until I give birth to this child. I’ll see how he treats me and the baby! Hmph.”
After that, Mo Huiling also got up and walked after them.
Gu Jingze was already inside. Why would she stay outside and listen to these women who could never touch Gu Jingze?
Lin Che followed Gu Jingze and went in to look for Eric.
She said, “There are so many people here. I thought it would be a private meeting.”
Gu Jingze replied, “Eric is the kind who prefers a lively environment. Thus, even if people found a way to come to the manor, I wouldn’t stop them.”
“I see.” Lin Che stood in front of Gu Jingze. “Do I look okay? I keep feeling as though something is not right… I’m so not used to having short hair.”
Gu Jingze said, “You’re just not used to it. It’ll grow back out in no time. Don’t worry.”
Lin Che nodded. “Okay. I think so too. My hair does grow quite fast in the first place.”
“Yes. You’re not 25 years old yet, so your metabolism is faster. Naturally, your hair will grow faster too.”
“…” So he had such professional knowledge…
Lin Che looked at Gu Jingze. “I’m just a little nervous. It’s Eric we’re talking about. He’s so famous…”
“Didn’t you say that you didn’t know him?” When Gu Jingze first told her about him, she was much calmer.
Lin Che said, “I didn’t know who he was at that time. I only knew after I searched his name. He’s the king of the stock market and he’s way too famous. He’s such a famous person… oh my, I need to control my inner panic system…”
Gu Jingze replied, “Forget it. Pretend that you have no idea. Relax. It’s okay.”
Lin Che said, “It’s easier said than done. Of course, you’re not nervous no matter who you meet… but why has the Gu family never been on the Forbes list? I thought the Gu family was also very wealthy.”
Gu Jingze looked at her. “Silly, not every wealthy figure will take part in the Forbes list. Many people will not publicize their wealth and they will not let people investigate how wealthy they are. This is especially so for some who do shady businesses. Although our family is very wealthy, we have always kept a low profile. We don’t publicly show off and we will never let people find out exactly how rich we are. This is a battle tactic as well as a way of handling matters.”
Lin Che understood his point and nodded. As they continued walking, she saw that they were already in the inner hall.
“Okay, look! Lin Che is here.”
Inside, a girl’s voice could be heard. Then, Lin Che saw a mix-blooded young girl running in.
“Ah, Lin Che! It’s really Lin Che!”
She spoke Mandarin and immediately hugged Lin Che’s waist.
She was only twelve years old, but she was already very tall. As she hugged Lin Che, she lifted her head and looked at Lin Che. Her face was filled with joy as she observed her new image.
“Wow, Lin Che, you are so pretty in real life. You look a hundred times prettier than on TV.”
Lin Che was stunned at first. Then, she looked up around the entire room until she saw some of the Gu family members. Lu Beichen was also there, sitting with Gu Jingyan. Across them was a blonde man in his forties. He looked very graceful and charming. He looked at them and smiled, glowing with fatherly love.
That was Eric. The same Eric in the photos she saw.
Lin Che looked at the girl. “Hey, hello.”
“Hello, I’m Lu Yunshi,” she spoke in Mandarin that was not so fluent.
“Oh, hello. You have a C National name.”
“Yes, my mom named me.”
