MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(The Conflict Between The Grandfather and Grandson)
Gu Jingze remained in his seat but his strong and dark aura could be felt through his facial expression.
With his arms trembling, he clenched his fist. Finally, he stood up from his seat and looked out of the window. His gaze grew darker and it was indecipherable.
Qin Hao was worried. Judging by Gu Jingze’s feelings for Lin Che, he was afraid that Gu Jingze would dash to A Country in the moment of impulse and that was no joking matter.
The calmer Gu Jingze appeared to be, the more frightening it was.
Qin Hao was well aware that Gu Jingze did not usually display his emotions, especially during emergencies.
Hence, Qin Hao watched him from the back, completely unsure of what decision Gu Jingze would make.
Then, Gu Jingze walked out in quick steps.
His sudden behavior and solemn expression were worrisome.
Realizing that something was amiss, Qin Hao went after him quickly.
Gu Jingze pushed through the door and went out of his office. When his staff saw that frightening side of him, they quickly retreated. But the raging anger and dark aura were bursting forth from within him and filled the whole place. Everyone shuddered. They thought to themselves, There must be an impending disaster.
However, as he stepped out of the door, he saw an old man standing before him. The old man stood there cooly with a dragon head walking stick. Looking at Gu Jingze, Gu Xiande set his stick on the ground and questioned him, “Where are you heading to?”
Gu Jingze looked afar with his cold gaze, “Grandfather, don’t interfere with this matter. Let me handle it myself, would you?”
Gu Xiande was fuming mad. “Let you handle it yourself?! Isn’t it the same as sending you to the grave? I will not allow you to go to A Country and risk your life just for a woman.”
Gu Jingze knew that it was impossible to keep this matter from his family. This was such a serious matter. How would he be able to keep it from them?
However, it was quite surprising that Gu Xiande came within such a short time.
It seemed like Gu Xiande had been watching both of them very closely these past few days. He must have arranged for someone to track their whereabouts.
Gu Jingze looked at Gu Xiande. Feeling helpless, he could only tell Gu Xiande that Lin Che was pregnant.
“Grandfather, Lin Che is expecting my child. It has barely been two months. I must go.”
This caught Gu Xiande by surprise. He trembled slightly and was in deep thoughts. After receiving such news, he was contemplating what it could possibly mean.
After a long time, his expression turned from doubtful to astonishment but eventually, he became calm and composed.
He pursed his dry lips and looked at Gu Jingze. “It’s still a no.”
“Grandfather, that’s your great-grandchild! It’s the flesh of the Gu family! The true flesh of the Gu family!” Gu Jingze’s brows furrowed.
Gu Xiande gritted his teeth. “You can always have another child, Jingze. But there’s only one of you, so you can’t go! We will give whatever it takes to save Lin Che, but you must not go!”
How could he sit back from this matter?
Usually, he would not even allow Lin Che to meet with the slightest mishap. Moreover, there was a fragile life in her womb.
If anything went wrong, the child would be gone and Lin Che would not be able to take that blow.
How could he bear that as well?
He would never bear to watch the first child of Lin Che come to any danger. Also, he would never bear to see Lin Che suffer such a loss.
Besides, Li Mingyu was coming at him. Li Mingyu was seeking revenge at him and thus, Lin Che was being implicated into this.
Gu Xiande considered it very carefully. The grandchild and great-grandchild, which was more important?
As much as he wanted the child as well, it was yet to be born and the future was uncertain. But to groom a person like Gu Jingze took him many years and he was already getting on. He could not pin his hopes on a life that was so uncertain.
In comparison, Gu Jingze was the important one.
Thus, Gu Xiande looked at Gu Jingze straight in the eye and said, “You can’t go.”
Seeing how firm Gu Xiande was, Gu Jingze already knew that his mind was set and there was no use in saying further.
Gu Jingze let out a sigh. Standing there, he narrowed his eyes. “What if I say I am definitely going?”
Gu Xiande was raging, “Gu Jingze, are you going to talk to me like this? You are definitely going? So you are not going to listen to me anymore, is that so? I have already said no. Do you still care about the Gu family? Do you not want your position as the head of the household anymore?
“In Grandfather’s eyes, I’m merely your puppet who can fulfill the role of the head of the household. But to Lin Che, I am her husband, so I will listen to her.”
“You…” Gu Xiande was infuriated.
The smile on Gu Jingze’s face faded. “Grandfather, when you wanted me to marry Lin Che in the beginning, I bet you have never thought of this situation today. However, you have created all this, so you can’t blame it on others.”
Gu Xiande’s face became even paler. Seeing that Gu Jingze was about to walk out of the office, he swung his walking stick and ordered, “Stop him.”
The bodyguards behind him were all working for Gu Xiande; they would definitely listen to him. Upon Gu Xiande’s instructions, they rushed forward.
One on each side, the four men grabbed Gu Jingze by his shoulders.
Before anyone could see how he reflected their grip, one of the guards was already on the ground. He stretched out his arm to grab the other. Then, he locked his throat and threw him onto the ground.
The two bodyguards got up immediately and continue to surround him.
Gu Jingze did not hold back at all. He gave a powerful swing kick and the bodyguard fell to the ground. Without much effort, the four bodyguards were all on the ground, groaning in pain.
These bodyguards were specially trained, but they could not even beat Gu Jingze together. Gu Xiande was shocked to see such a sight. Then, he turned to look at Gu Jingze.
He was most suited to be the head of the household in the Gu family. Besides his excellent knowledge of doing business, his skills in all other aspects were very outstanding.
However, because of Lin Che…
Because of her, Gu Jingze began to deviate from his usual track.
Now, he was even going to risk his life for Lin Che. This was outrageous.
Gu Xiande could not take it any longer. He stared at Gu Jingze in the eyes and said, “Jingze, I know they won’t be able to stop you. But if you leave this room today, then don’t dream about coming back!”
All the staff in the company gasped in horror.
At the headquarters, they could often see Gu Jingze in person, but Gu Xiande was someone whom they might only get to see once every few years. But that day, he came to the office and even got into a heated argument with Gu Jingze.
No one dared to take another step for a closer look but they were all paying attention to their argument.
It was the first time that they witnessed Gu Jingze’s martial skills and they did not expect him to be so skillful that he could beat four bodyguards alone. However, Gu Xiande was also someone who should not be offended as well. Everyone witnessed the conflict between the grandfather and grandson. It was a shocking sight and nobody knew how this conflict would end.
