MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
( Display Of Affection In The Company)
Gu Jingze let out a smile.
He felt it was a relief that they did not need to hide anymore.
Though there were some risks, they would not be in as much danger if fewer people knew. Thus, they might as well appear without a care for all to see. Then, there would be no risk of them getting exposed.
At least, they did not have to hide and they could relax being as they were.
Of course, it was a breath of fresh air when they published the news. Ultimately, he was in a good mood.
He headed to the canteen with Lin Che.
The canteens of Gu Industries were categorized differently. One was for the staff, another was for the higher management.
Lin Che looked and found both kitchens to be sophisticated.
After all, the canteens belonged to the Gu Industries. They were not some ordinary school canteen. It was a canteen for name’s sake but it was like a western restaurant with both Western and Chinese cuisines. They could pick whatever they wanted to eat.
Lin Che said, “Wow, your canteens are so upscale.”
Gu Jingze asked, “Which one do you want to use?”
Lin Che looked and said, “Let’s not go to the higher management’s canteen. Those executives will behave like mice seeing a cat when they see you. How boring.”
Gu Jingze suppressed a laugh when he heard that. He looked over and realized those from higher management were already watching him and Lin Che being there. The looks they had on were indeed more frightening than before.
Lin Che said, “Let’s go to the staff’s canteen. I think it’s not bad there.”
It was not bad indeed. The employees were too distant from Gu Jingze, unlike those from higher management who had crossed paths with Gu Jingze and knew how harsh he could be. The employees had only heard from hearsay and had yearned to meet Gu Jingze. They had heard good things about him. As the boss of their boss would mean he was the one who reprimanded their boss. Thus, he was an enemy of an enemy, which meant that he was a friend. They had good feelings towards Gu Jingze and they looked at him with a more favorable attitude.
It was a no brainer to choose a place that gave ease to the mind for meals.
Lin Che headed in with Gu Jingze. Some of the employees had just heard that Gu Jingze and Lin Che were together. Thus, when they saw the two of them appeared publicly, they were beyond excited.
They looked at both of them with excitement and curiosity.
They saw how Gu Jingze held on to Lin Che lovingly and casually. They were amazed at how they had been husband and wife for many years.
Everyone knew Lin Che. She was, after all, a big star and a household name. The older generation may not know of her, but the current one did.
Everyone also knew Gu Jingze. He was their company’s big boss after all.
However, nobody had thought these two would be together.
Seeing them together now, and right before their eyes left them undeniably amazed.
Lin Che and Gu Jingze found a place to sit.
The restaurant’s manager ran over.
She was in a cold sweat as she watched Gu Jingze bring his wife for a meal. She thought to herself, This big boss did not inform that he was coming and now they were at a loss of what to do when he appeared without a word.
What if the food from the kitchen was not good enough? What if the place was not clean enough? She did not know if the two of them would be pleased.
The manager quickly said, “President Gu, Madam, what would you like to have for lunch? I’ll go to the kitchen and prepare it immediately.
Lin Che looked at Gu Jingze. He looked like it did not matter to him.
Lin Che replied, “The same as everyone. You don’t have to do anything special. This is a buffet-style, right? I’ll take a look, you don’t have to bother about us.”
The manager saw that this was not going well. Even though the company had strict standards for the canteen to comply with, Gu Jingze was President Gu no matter how. He must have higher expectations than the employees. If he had the same food as the employees and something went wrong, that would be bad.
However, since Lin Che had said as such, the manager had no choice.
Lin Che got up to pick some of the food and thought that it wasn’t too bad. She did not understand why the manager was so worried. They had quite good staff welfare. It was indeed not bad that the food was a buffet.
Lin Che returned with happiness on her face. “Your employees are really fortunate. Did many put on weight with all the eating?”
Gu Jingze nonchalantly picked up something to eat. Although he demanded cleanliness from women, he was still alright with food. As long as it was clean, it was enough.
So he did not bother if it was from a buffet.
He said, “Gu Industries should be one of the most difficult companies to join in the country. There’s a reason for that. Staff welfare is one of the reasons. Too many people put in their applications every year and not many leave the company. Thus, those who make it are the best of the best. Some staff benefits should be given.”
“Ha, look at you saying all these with pride.”
“But how many did you see were on the heavy side?”
Lin Che looked around. Indeed, there were some who were on the heavier side, but it was just that, nothing too extreme.
Gu Jingze said, “With good welfare comes good returns. So you can see that even at midnight, there would be some working overtime.”
Sick. It was no wonder their faces were yellow.
She cleared her throat and said, “Thank goodness I’m not your employee.”
“Yes, with you being like that, you can’t even be my employee.”
“Gosh, who wants it?”
The two of them laughed heartily as they sat there.
Others around looked over.
Gu Jingze left with Lin Che after having their meal.
They almost bumped into someone rushing in.
Given any other day, Gu Jingze’s face would have darkened. But he was happy that day and so he just looked at that person and said, “Be careful.”
When she saw Lin Che and Gu Jingze together, he immediately said, “Wow, President Gu… Wow, Lin Che… You’re my favorite. You’re really pretty and actually our lady boss. We’re really excited…”
An employee who talked like this did not even think who he was talking to.
However, when Gu Jingze heard her say lady boss, he furrowed his brows and said, “Alright, you’ll have many chances in the future.”
Lin Che smiled at her.
She watched from the back. Wow, when President Gu and wife were together, his temper became better…
Gu Jingze took Lin Che along to leave the place, leaving the employees in admiration.
The two of them were really loving.
It looked like all the gossip was true.
So their President Gu really went to be part of a TV drama.
Their president had really put in a lot of effort for his wife. If not, why would a CEO from the Gu family no less, go into acting in a TV drama?
But they were very happy as well. With his wife, President Gu seemed to be a better person. He seemed to be more humane and not so difficult to approach anymore.
