MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(They Said That The Photographs Of The Two Of Them Were Great)
Mo Huiling looked up at Gu Jingming only to see confusion plain on his face. She said in surprise, “Mr. President, I’m Mo Huiling. You’ve met me before.”
There was no way she had not met Gu Jingze’s older brother in the past when they had been together.
What’s more, she was still the Young Miss of the Mo family.
However, Gu Jingming merely looked at her and paused before saying, “Oh… nice to meet you.”
He had obviously forgotten her…
Mo Huiling’s face instantly turned red with anger. “Mr. President, I used to be with Gu Jingze all the time. I even had a meal with you before when we were still together.”
Gu Jingming continued to look at her and said gently, “I’m sorry. My memory is pretty bad. I don’t quite remember.”
“…” Mo Huiling was so angry that she nearly spit out blood.
However, when she saw that there were many people around, she simply felt that she would be even more ashamed if she continued to stand here.
She had no choice but to stand aside and look on as Gu Jingming walked past her. Behind him, Yu Minmin glanced at her and looked her up and down before catching up with Gu Jingming. Shen Youran rolled her eyes at Mo Huiling directly and went off. Lin Che looked at her but said to the maid, “Tell the kitchen to prepare the water for us.” Then, she also walked past her.
Gu Jingze did not even spare her a second glance and walked past her as well.
Mo Huiling was so angry that her teeth were clenched.
She was even angrier when she looked up to find that the maids were trying not to laugh. They seemed to be looking at her mockingly.
Mo Huiling immediately stomped her foot and humphed.
After walking away, she could still hear the maids murmuring softly. Although their voices were too soft and she could not clearly hear what they were saying, they were obviously talking about her.
Mo Huiling felt like her face was heating up. It was as if someone had just slapped her.
She turned around to see Lin Che and Gu Jingze standing together. Gu Jingming was at the side with Yu Minmin beside him. Shen Youran and Chen Yucheng had already sat down together. Lin Che looked up and continued to chat happily with Gu Jingming.
Mo Huiling angrily wondered why Lin Che was always able to get along with these people while she herself could not.
Because she had been such a fool and had kept such a low profile, thinking that loving Gu Jingze was enough. She had never thought about the people around him.
But Lin Che was indeed better at this than she was. In such a short time, she had first set a goal for herself and that was to grab ahold of the people around Gu Jingze.
Lin Che could not be bothered with anyone else. She was busy instructing the kitchen staff and helping them set up the tables. They really started to cook hotpot outside.
Gu Jingze was skeptical about Gu Jingming’s unexpected presence here and glanced at him from time to time.
On the other hand, Gu Jingming had a nonchalant expression and chatted casually with Gu Jingze.
At the side, Yu Minmin did not dare to make a sound.
Shen Youran had never expected Gu Jingming to come for today’s gathering. Before this, she could still pretend that Gu Jingze did not exist whenever he was around. But now that there were two Buddhas standing here, no one could continue to pretend that they did not exist.
Thus, Shen Youran merely sighed and looked at Chen Yucheng as if to say that this hotpot was seriously… a little uncomfortable.
Sensing Shen Youran’s eyes on him, Chen Yucheng smiled and said, “Hey, President Gu, I heard that you guys even went to take wedding photographs. Why didn’t you send them to us so that we could see them?”
Gu Jingze glared at Chen Yucheng.
Chen Yucheng asked, “Why? We’re all so familiar with one another. Just let us take a look. I really haven’t seen you in any weird poses before.”
Lin Che hastily asked, “What weird poses?”
Chen Yucheng said, “I mean those weird poses you strike when you take wedding photographs. I’ve seen some people take pictures while the photographer instructs them from the side saying, ‘Groom, point to the sky together with the bride and imagine that you’re flying to the sky with her’. Isn’t that the case?”
Everyone started laughing loudly.
Shen Youran said, “You impersonated the photographer so well. Where did you see it happen? It’s true though. The ones I’ve seen are also like that. I nearly died of laughter. It can’t be that you guys did that too when you took the photographs.”
Shen Youran also could not imagine what Gu Jingze would look like doing those poses.
Lin Che said in disbelief, “Alright. We didn’t strike any poses at all. Where did you see such things?”
Shen Youran said, “Hey, hey. You’re all talk. You only sent us one photo. Send them all to me. Once we see them, we’ll know what kind of photographs you took.”
Yu Minmin joined in and said, “Yes, yes. Let us see them. They’re definitely in your cellphone, right? We won’t spread the photos to outsiders anyway.”
Chen Yucheng said, “Hey, I want to see them too.”
Left with no choice, Lin Che could only take out her phone and show them the photographs.
Shen Youran took her phone from her.
Yu Minmin quickly leaned over as well.
“Wow, they’re so close to each other in this picture…”
“Good Lord, they kissed just like that…”
“Wow, this looks good. Even though she’s wearing her own clothes, the backdrop and her movements are very beautiful.”
“She’s not in a wedding dress but this one looks good too.”
“Dear me, look at President Gu’s expression. He looks so doting.”
The two of them looked at the photos while shouting in surprise. Lin Che was left speechless.
Behind them, Chen Yucheng saw a few photographs and sighed, saying, “Pft, pft. As expected, their photos are different.”
Shen Youran scanned through the photos while sighing in admiration, “This world is really a world based on appearances…”
Yu Minmin said, “Of course. I was the one who discovered Lin Che. There’s definitely a reason why her face has been in the industry for so many years.”
Shen Youran said, “That’s enough. Didn’t you say that you didn’t expect anything of her at the start?”
Yu Minmin said, “Apart from appearances, luck is also a factor in this industry. At the time, the iron wasn’t hot yet and she received no offers for good productions. Boss, I needed to earn money too, you know? My entire family, old and young, depends on me for their survival. I couldn’t just nurture her only and not earn money.”
The two of them started chatting between themselves while continuing to swipe her phone screen.
“But you guys really didn’t strike those poses Chen Yucheng mentioned. All of the photos look very heart-warming and not at all pretentious.”
Chen Yucheng noticed this as well. He leaned backward in a slight show of boredom. He then shook his head and said, “Seriously, Gu Jingze. Your life can’t possibly be that perfect. From time to time, you should let us see an embarrassing side of you. That would be good.”
Gu Jingze looked at him. “Why should I show you?”
Shen Youran also sighed. She had the same thoughts as Yu Minmin and Chen Yucheng. Their photographs turned out really well and they were not pretentious at all. There was no hint that they had deliberately struck poses like in those typical wedding photographs. The photos simply showed the two of them standing together lovingly and were extraordinarily beautiful.
Shen Youran said, “It looks like there’s no hope of seeing President Gu make a fool of himself in this lifetime.”
Lin Che said, “You guys are way too mean. Why do you want to see people make a fool of themselves for no reason?” She snatched her phone back and did not let them continue looking at the photos.
“That’s enough. Let’s start eating first.”
Lin Che saw that the hotpot was already boiling and giving off steam. Thus, she quickly called for everyone to eat.
