MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Alright, I’ll Bathe You)
Lin Che looked at Mo Huiling suspiciously as she put down the objects on the tray. Then, she smiled and said, “Lin Che, I brewed some tea for you. You can consider it tea I made to apologize to you…”
Of course, Lin Che did not dare to touch anything she gave her.
As if she understood Lin Che’s thoughts, she immediately said, “I know. I know that you may not be willing to accept my tea. Don’t worry. I didn’t put anything inside. I would be asking for death if I did anything to you at home.”
“Still, forget it. There’s no need for any apologies between us.”
“Hey, you…” Mo Huiling suppressed her anger. She only managed to control herself when she recalled what Gu Lanshan had said to her earlier. She continued to lower herself and speak gently, “I’m sorry. What else do you want me to do? I promise that I will definitely control my emotions in the future. I’m only here because my arm hasn’t recovered yet. It will probably take more than a month for it to recover. I’ll just stay here for a while more until it recovers. If Gu Jingze truly feels nothing for me, I won’t pester him any longer either. On account of the child, just let me give it a try. Since you’re so confident that Gu Jingze feels nothing for me, then just let me stay here and take it that you’re giving me the chance to give up.”
Lin Che looked up at Mo Huiling.
Of course, Lin Che would not believe her words. But she was baffled about what exactly Mo Huiling was trying to do.
Lin Che did not want to waste any more time or get involved in a conflict with her. Once her arm recovered, Gu Jingze would definitely come up with a way to make her leave even if she did not want to. Thus, Lin Che simply nodded her head. “Fine. Then, we’ll just live together in harmony for the time being. I hope that we can ignore each other’s existence and not cause a disturbance to each other.”
Mo Huiling smiled. “As long as you’re not angry. Alright, I’ll leave the tea here. Have a good rest. I won’t continue disturbing you.”
After watching Mo Huiling leave, Lin Che looked down at the tea on the table.
Gu Jingze arrived home very early that evening.
Lin Che happened to be reading her script when he came up behind her.
Because Lin Che was on her period, she felt extremely fatigued. Even though it was already her second day, she still felt unwell.
Gu Jingze’s hands rested gently on her.
Lin Che froze before raising her head. “Ah, you’re back.”
Gu Jingze looked at her drooping eyelids and how she looked as if she was about to fall asleep. He reached out a hand and snatched the script from her hands. “Come on. Go to sleep now.”
In a daze, Lin Che rubbed her eyes and said gently, “Hm, I’ll go to sleep soon. Didn’t you accompany Eric today?”
“I still had work to do. I had a meal with him after settling my work matters.”
“Oh, alright…” Lin Che reached out an arm and said to Gu Jingze, “Come here, come here. Sit here for a while.”
Gu Jingze looked helplessly at Lin Che who was acting as if she had not promised to go to sleep. Shaking his head, he walked over to her.
The moment he sat down, Lin Che’s hand came up to rest on his body. While hugging him, she said slightly tiredly, “I really don’t want to move… with you as my cuddly bear, it’s even more difficult for me to move…”
She touched his chest. Hm, hm. It had such a nice feel to it. Resting on his chest like this was so comfortable too. It was so comfortable that she did not want to move even an inch.
Gu Jingze asked incredulously, “Who is your cuddly bear?”
“Why? I’m just cuddling you for a while.”
“Let’s go to the room and take our time cuddling.” He looked down and breathed in the scent of her hair. Then, he smiled faintly.
Lin Che hastily said, “No, no, no. I’m too lazy to move… and I’m on my period, so you can’t touch me…”
Gu Jingze pulled her up in one swift motion and looked at her. “I merely said that we would cuddle. What were you thinking about?”
“…” Right. He knew that she was on her period, so he definitely would not touch her.
She only felt so cautious because he had truly scared her.
Each time, he always said that they would immediately go to sleep after just one time…
But in the end, once would never be enough and they would do it again. She would end up feeling utterly worn out after being tortured a few times. She would lie down on the bed not knowing what had just happened and simply fall asleep.
Lin Che started quibbling, “What I mean is that since I’m on my period, you can’t touch me, much less cuddle.”
“That’s enough. Even if I can’t touch you, you still have to take a shower.”
“No… No, I don’t want to go. I want to go straight to sleep. I’m so tired.”
Gu Jingze looked at her in frustration. “Don’t move. I’ll do it for you.”
Immediately, he lifted Lin Che up in his arms.
“Hey, hey, hey. I’m so dirty. Let me do it myself. I’ll take a shower on my own right now…”
When she was on her period, she always disliked the fact that she was so dirty. How could she possibly let him see her?
“That’s enough. What’s the problem? How are you dirty? It’s just discharge from your body, namely the lining of your uterus and some blood clots. That’s not dirty at all. Alright, don’t move.” Although Gu Jingze said this, Lin Che still did not want him to see it. When he pulled the bathroom door open, she quickly ran in and said to Gu Jingze, “I’ll do it myself! I don’t need your help.”
Gu Jingze could only look on as she closed the door. He paused at the doorway and pondered for a bit before deciding not to leave.
Just as he expected, after some time, he could still hear the sounds of running water but he did not know what Lin Che was doing.
Gu Jingze knocked on the door. “What are you doing?”
There was still no sound from Lin Che.
Gu Jingze immediately called for a maid to bring the key before dismissing her with a wave. Then, he opened the door with the key.
Sure enough, he opened the door to find Lin Che sitting inside, fast asleep.
Because she was on her period, she was not in the bathtub and was instead sitting on the chair and taking a shower.
At the moment, she was leaning against the wall but her head was tilted.
Left with no choice, Gu Jingze closed the door, took a towel and wrapped it around her quickly. Then, he put a bathrobe on her and lifted her in his arms with no hesitation.
“Oh…” Lin Che opened her eyes drowsily and looked at Gu Jingze. “What happened…”
“Stupid. You fell asleep.”
“Ah… really? It’s because I had to go to so many places today and my body was weak too, so I was too tired… I’m so tired…”
Gu Jingze carried her into the room and placed her on the couch inside.
Lin Che sat up and said, “I’ll clean myself up.”
“No need. Stop moving.” Gu Jingze frowned as he pushed her down. “Just sit there obediently.”
He squatted down and patiently cleaned her body inch by inch. He was meticulous down to the smallest detail and even cleaned her fingers one by one. Then, he lifted her legs and wrapped them in the soft towel. He cleaned them thoroughly before bringing her clothes to her.
He carefully pulled the clothes over her head. While helping her put the clothes on, he said, “If you’re too tired, stay at home tomorrow.”
“No way. I have scenes to film tomorrow. I can’t make the production crew wait for me alone,” Lin Che said.
Gu Jingze wanted to say something.
Lin Che looked up at him and said, ” I learned this from you. A person must take responsibility for his actions. Right now, I have to be accountable to the entire production crew. How can I be so unreasonable and miss filming just because I said so?”
Gu Jingze could only remain silent. He lowered his head and kissed her before buttoning up her sleeves properly.
She looked at Gu Jingze and felt like she was a doll being controlled at whim.
But this was a very blissful feeling.
