MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Must You Be So Angry?)
Lin Che turned around sheepishly. She nearly wanted to just follow after him, but Lu Beichen stopped her immediately. “Don’t be afraid of him. You have an older brother here to support you. Don’t worry. This isn’t his territory. This is your older brother’s territory. I definitely won’t let you lose out.”
Lin Che immediately looked at Lu Beichen innocently. She would be relying entirely on him for the next few days…
Very quickly, Lu Beichen drove the two of them back to the Lu residence.
Sure enough, after going in, they saw that bodyguards from the Gu family were here.
The maids came out from inside. Shocked, they said, “Second Young Master came earlier and said that he was going to stay for a few days. Old Master instructed us to prepare a room for him. Right now, Second Young Master has gone to see Old Master.”
Lu Beichen said, “Heh. Everyone says that I’m shameless. I’ve finally met someone even more shameless than me. Is there anyone as terrible as him? He even came to my house.”
Lin Che could only shrug. She looked to the side with her heart frozen.
For some reason, she felt that she would have a pretty hard time over the next few days…
The moment she arrived at the Lu residence, Lin Che quickly retreated to her room.
She did not dare to leave her room again the entire day.
If Gu Jingze caught her, she was definitely done for.
She had caused Gu Jingze to get into a fight with someone at a bar… even thinking about it made her feel that death was near.
Lin Che whipped out her phone to check her WeChat. She discovered that people were actually discussing the incident.
The comments were about how Gu Jingze and Lu Beichen had just had a huge fight in a bar for all to see. No one had dared to break up the fight.
Many people lamented, “Is this for real? Did anyone take any photos?”
“Why didn’t you say so earlier? I didn’t get to see it.”
“What a pity. I would have gone to watch if I found out about it earlier. I go to that place very often. That’s the bar Lu Beichen frequents.”
Further down below, Lin Che even found a comment targeting her. It said that she had gotten into a fight with Gu Jingze and that he had even chased her out of the house…
According to the rumors, the neighbors had seen Lin Che leaving the house without taking anything with her and immediately told other people about it.
These people really liked to make up stories…
That night, Lin Che had still not left the room to eat anything. One of the maids knocked on her door and said, “Madam Gu, our Young Master, and Young Madam are having a barbecue in the backyard. They asked you to go as well.”
“Yes, it’s just around the corner. You’ll know once you go there.”
Lin Che had no choice but to go out. She looked around and saw no trace of Gu Jingze. Then, she asked softly, “Where is Gu Jingze?”
“Mr. Gu said that he had work to do and hasn’t come back yet.”
“Fantastic.” Lin Che stretched her leg out loosely and stretched her body. Then, she followed the maid out.
When they arrived outside, the maid said, “Madam, this way please.”
Lin Che walked out of the courtyard and asked the maid, “Did they go outside to have the barbecue?”
“Yes, Madam. The houses here are not that compact. There are very large empty spaces and there’s an eco-park behind the house. This place is particularly spacious, so it’s a very suitable venue for leisure. Young Master often holds barbecues here.”
“Alright.” This place was located some distance away from the city area. As Lu Tingyu preferred a quiet atmosphere, he did not buy a house in the central district and instead chose to live in a place that was farther away. The good thing was that the air was really very good here. It lifted her spirits and seemed to make her feel at ease as well.
Sure enough, when she looked into the distance, she saw a barbecue grill and a large lamp. Lu Beichen, Gu Jingyan, and Gu Jingze were all there.
Lin Che’s body shriveled up the moment she saw Gu Jingze.
Didn’t they say that he wasn’t around…
However, Gu Jingyan had already caught sight of Lin Che. She called out to her and said, “Come here, Sister-In-Law. You’re too slow.”
Lin Che had no choice but to go over. Gu Jingze was sitting on a high chair with his legs propped up. He turned around to look at Lin Che with misty eyes, filling her mind with delusional thoughts.
Lin Che quickly turned around.
She found a seat furthest away from Gu Jingze and hastily sat down. However, she did not expect Gu Jingze to start inching closer towards her. Subsequently, he inched even closer upon seeing that Lu Beichen was so focused on manning the grill.
By the time Lin Che noticed, he had already inched his way into Lin Che’s danger zone.
She whipped her head up and looked at Gu Jingze.
Gu Jingze immediately said, “Lin Che, I’ll apologize to you. I shouldn’t have hidden it from you. But Mo Huiling did tell me that she was going to get an abortion that day. It’s just that in the end, it turned out that she was just fooling around. So I thought there was no need to tell you…”
Hearing this, Lin Che looked up at him. “You can explain all you want. I’m listening. But it’s my choice whether or not to believe you.”
“You… Lin Che!”
Lin Che turned away.
Gu Jingze kept staring at Lin Che with his lips pursed.
It was only after a long time that he turned around to say, “Fine, Lin Che. Don’t regret this.”
Lin Che scoffed only to see Gu Jingze look at her and stand up immediately. Then, he walked into the distance. He seemed to be moving further and further away and he slowly disappeared into the darkness.
Lin Che felt a little strange and her heart slowly turned cold. She could not help but wonder if she had gone too far. She had simply been kicking up a fuss… but it seemed that she had made it too realistic.
Gu Jingyan looked up. “Hey, where did my brother go?”
Lin Che paused for some time before standing up and saying, “I’ll go and take a look.”
She instinctively stood up and walked out. She looked for him outside but did not see him. Her heart sank even further.
Had he left out of anger?
She looked closely at her surroundings again. All of a sudden, she saw Gu Jingze’s figure in the dark. He was standing there all alone.
Lin Che hurried over.
“Gu Jingze.” She called out to him but Gu Jingze did not respond.
Lin Che frowned as she approached him. “Are you angry? Think about it, Gu Jingze. You got so angry just from hearing my words… then, I must have been so angry when Mo Huiling said those things to me, right?”
She approached him from behind and reached out her arm to touch him.
However, Gu Jingze moved and immediately pushed her hand away.
Lin Che felt slightly hurt.
She did not dare to touch him out of fear that he would push her away again.
She crossed her arms in front of her and stood there watching him. “Alright. I know that you’re angry. You’re right. By running away from home like this, I’m humiliating you. I even caused you to get into a fight with someone at the bar and injured your reputation even further. But…”
Before Lin Che finished speaking, she sensed a sudden light around her.
Something was floating towards them. Initially, Lin Che could not see clearly. Later, she suddenly realized that these specks which filled the air around her were actually fireflies!
The fireflies were like an array of stars floating towards them one by one from the distance. In no time, their greenish light was everywhere. Lin Che simply felt that everything before her eyes was part of a dream. In the darkness, these lights formed a layer around her body…
Lin Che blinked in awe. She looked up at this wondrous scene and felt as if her world had been overturned.
