(Who Exactly Were The People After Them)
When the family saw that Gu Jingze was awake, they tidied up the place first so that they could prepare some food.
However, they were so poor here that their handphones were very old. They could not make international calls.
Lin Ches and Gu Jingzes phones had been taken away. They had nothing on them right now.
Although there was a police station here, Gu Jingze was worried that the police would be acting in concert with Li Mingyu or the Black Hawk, so he did not tell Lin Che to make a report.
After all, this was A Nation and not C Nation.
With Lin Ches support, Gu Jingze went out to look at the terrain here. The sun was about to set. The scenery here was so tranquil that there was no sign of danger. It was like paradise on earth.
Lin Che recounted what had happened at the end. She looked at Gu Jingze in confusion. But I dont know why the Black Hawk wants to use Li Mingyu to kill you. Does he have some grudge against you?
Gu Jingze shook his head and said, From what I know, I dont have any issues with Black Hawk. Ive never met him either. But I know for a fact that hes always targeting the Gu family. Thats why C Nation has blacklisted him from going through customs. I dont know why he sees the Gu family as his enemy and keeps getting caught up with us. We havent been able to find out anything through investigations either. After all, Black Hawks background has always been an enigma. No one knows.
So he really wanted to kill you? But he didnt want to do it himself, so he helped Li Mingyu? But in the end, he realized that Li Mingyu no longer wanted to kill you, so he decided to do it on his own?
I guess so.
Lin Che sighed. She looked at Gu Jingze and pulled his clothes over his shoulders.
But Gu Jingze forcefully grabbed her hands. He looked at her and said, No need to bother with me.
Your clothes are too thin. Theyre torn too. With so many injuries all over your body, it will definitely be bad if you catch a cold.
How silly. Gu Jingze gazed at her deeply and said, In actual fact, I should be the one to look after you now.
His gaze slowly shifted to the bump on her belly.
Lin Che shook her head. The child is fine. Im fine too. Initially, I was the one they caught. Im the one who caused these injuries all over your body.
How silly. You wouldnt have been targeted either if not for me. Youve never had anything to do with Li Mingyu in the first place.
She was only experiencing these events because she had married him and become his wife.
How could he push all the responsibility to her right now?
Lin Che said, Enough, enough. Lets stop pushing the blame on ourselves. Didnt you say before that were a married couple? A married couple is supposed to go through thick and thin together in the first place, right?
Gu Jingze put an arm around her shoulders. They stood there together and watched the people in the village walk around.
In actual fact, both of them felt that they had not seen such a peaceful scene for a long time. They momentarily felt that a steady life and peaceful days made their hearts turn calm as well.
Lin Che said, Look, that couple just got married. Even the house they built is new.
Really? So the woman cooking at the entrance is the bride?
Yes. Is she beautiful?
Gu Jingze shook his head. Not as beautiful as you.
Ha. Youre even complimenting me now, Lin Che said while looking at Gu Jingze in surprise.
Gu Jingze bopped her nose. I pursue only the truth. Its a fact that youre more beautiful than her. I must admit that this is one of your few good qualities.
Lin Che slapped his chest. How mean! Youre spouting nonsense when you just got better.
Gu Jingze immediately made a pained expression.
Lin Che got frightened and quickly asked, What happened? Are you all alright? Did I hurt you?
Hn. You hurt me when you hit me. You must console me.
Lin Che asked, How should I do that?
Gu Jingze turned his head and instantly captured her lips in a kiss.
Lin Che widened her eyes but ultimately did not move.
The long-awaited kiss immediately evoked countless emotions in her heart.
Back when they had been at Li Mingyus, there was a moment when she truly thought that she would never be able to kiss his lips and touch his body again. She was really unable to let go.
When she felt his cool and thin lips press against hers, she returned the kiss as well. His tongue invaded her mouth and she closed her eyes while kissing him quietly.
They eventually heard a young girl tease them, Look. A couple is kissing over there. How shameful.
Lin Che paused and looked up. She saw a mother and her young daughter carrying bamboo baskets on their back walk past them. When the mother heard her daughter say this, she patted her daughter but nevertheless, looked over at them curiously as well.
Lin Ches face immediately turned red. She quickly looked down and wiped her mouth.
Gu Jingze broke into a smile and wrapped his arms around her shoulders. Then, he said, Come on, lets eat something. Well rest up for the night and set off on our own tomorrow. Ill contact members of the Gu family once we get to town.
They must be looking for us too. I wonder what happened between Black Hawk and Li Mingyu now that weve left.
Until now, Lin Che still did not understand why Li Mingyu had helped her in the end and took the gunshot for her.
Theyre villains doing each other dirty. They will have to depend on their own abilities to win.
Gu Jingze was not at all interested in the aftermath.
Right now, he just wanted to bring Lin Che to a safe place as soon as he could so she would not have to suffer.
The two of them returned to Dongzis house very soon after. The food was already ready. There was nothing good to eat. There was a huge bowl of vegetables and rice. This was the entire familys dinner.
Although it was simple, Lin Che found it very delicious. It was even more delicious than the delicacies she had eaten at Li Mingyus.
But Gu Jingze
She glanced at Gu Jingze. She was worried that he would eat too much of this food that he was not accustomed to when his wounds had not recovered. If he did not eat well, how would his body recover properly?
However, Gu Jingze seemed not to have any qualms. He ate bite after bite and finished the bowl of food before thanking the family.
That night, Dongzi cleared his room out for the two of them and went to sleep outside.
Lin Che and Gu Jingze hugged one another to sleep. Gu Jingze watched as Lin Che fell asleep quickly. He caressed her stomach.
When it occurred to him that they still had to rush to town tomorrow, he kept thinking and strategizing into the early hours of the morning and only quietly closed his eyes thereafter.
He had not slept for long when he suddenly heard an uproar outside. The dogs started barking, causing him to wake up with a start.
Gu Jingze immediately opened his eyes in the darkness.
Lin Che was roused from sleep only to hear Dongzi running in from outside.
There are people outside. Are they looking for you?
Gu Jingze immediately stood up and pulled Lin Che to her feet. He said resolutely, Follow me through the back.
Dongzi said, Then, you must leave quickly. Theyre searching each and every house. They have many people with them. I saw some of them holding things that looked like guns.
The old lady ran out after Dongzi. What happened? Who are these people? Why are they so frightening?
Lin Che said, Its nothing. Once we leave, they wont cause trouble for you. Well leave right now.
Lin Che followed Gu Jingzes lead and jogged to the window. When she jumped out the window, she heard the door of the Wang familys house being kicked open.
