MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Don“t Fight Like Children)
Just then, Gu Jingze said from behind him, “Keep her alive so that we can bring her to the Gu family. When we reach the Gu family mansion, we’ll serve the family punishment upon her. Then, she will feel that living is even more torturous than dying.”
Xue Mengqi’s eyes were wide as she stared straight ahead.
Li Mingyu glanced at Gu Jingze’s retreating figure and nodded.
At the hospital.
Gu Jingze clasped Lin Che’s hands tightly.
Of course, the doctor knew who the two of them were. They had made so many televised appearances recently, so they had already become a household name.
Thus, when he saw that Gu Jingze was present, the doctor dared not tell him to leave either. He could only let him hold Lin Che’s hands like that as he himself administered treatment fearfully at the side.
“Although her internal organs were not injured, she still needs surgery. Mr. Gu, look…”
“Do what you have to,” Gu Jingze said indifferently.
Gu Jingze looked at him.
Frightened, the doctor hastily said, “Yes, yes. We’ll go to the operating room right away.”
While looking at Gu Jingze, a row of people pushed Lin Che straight into the operating room.
Outside, when Black Eagle arrived, he saw Li Mingyu still watching over the situation there.
Black Eagle asked, “Where is Gu Jingze?”
“He went in with them. Don’t worry. They said that she isn’t critically injured. She just lost too much blood.”
Black Eagle nodded and sat down.
One hour later.
Lin Che was in the hospital ward when someone woke her up.
“Lin Che, Lin Che? The operation ended. Has the anesthesia worn off? Are you awake?”
Lin Che woke up groggily.
She immediately saw that she was already in the hospital.
“Ah, Gu Jingze…” Lin Che was about to get up.
However, by this time, Gu Jingze’s face had appeared before her eyes.
Lin Che only felt relieved upon seeing Gu Jingze completely uninjured.
“Oh. You’re fine, you’re fine. That’s great.”
The accusation was written all over Gu Jingze’s face as he held her hands. “You’re not allowed to behave so foolishly again next time.”
Lin Che stuck out her tongue. “But am I not fine now?”
“Yes, yes. You’re fine. However, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be fine the next time.” Li Mingyu’s voice traveled lazily from behind them.
When Lin Che looked up, she saw that this A-class ward was currently filled with people standing all around.
Li Mingyu, Black Eagle, Gu Jingyu, Lu Beichen, Dong Zi and Gu Shinian were all here.
Gu Jingze turned around with a foul expression on his face.
Li Mingyu said, “What? She’s right, isn’t she? You yourself were useless but you’re not allowing her to say it.”
Li Mingyu continued, “Lin Che, I told you early on that you should be with me instead. Look. When have I ever put you in such a sorry state when you were with me?”
Was he not asking for a beating?
As expected, Gu Jingze immediately took a step in his direction with a dark expression.
Lin Che hastily shouted, “Hey, hey, hey. Get back here.”
She could not stop him.
Fortunately, Li Mingyu was a fast runner and had already fleed by this time.
He himself knew that he could not beat Gu Jingze. On top of that, everyone here was on Gu Jingze’s side. He would not continue standing there at a disadvantage to himself.
“Hey, I just helped you, but you want to hit me?”
“If not for the fact that you couldn’t control your own child, nothing would have happened to Lin Che too.”
Hearing his words, Li Mingyu’s face darkened considerably.
“I’ve already disciplined Li Wei. He didn’t know that Mo Huiling wanted to cause harm either. He genuinely thought that his mother could become a better person and merely wanted to visit Niannian. How could he have known that Mo Huiling had gone there to take a voice recording?”
Lin Che asked, “Was Mo Huiling using Li Wei?”
Li Mingyu said, “Yes. When Li Wei heard that something had happened to you, he quickly came to tell me. He said that he suspected that something had gone wrong at Mo Huiling’s. So I rushed to tell Gu Jingze. Otherwise, how would Gu Jingze have taken precautions in advance?”
Lin Che nodded her head in understanding. “In that case, don’t blame the child anymore. He’s probably blaming himself enough. Anyway, I’m fine now. Besides, it’s true that I myself made a mistake. I didn’t think things through and that’s why I fell into a trap.”
“It’s all because their scheme was too complex. You’re so simple-minded, so you’re suited to be under my wing…” Li Mingyu started spouting nonsense again.
Gu Jingze’s face darkened another degree.
Black Eagle was the only one to say disbelievingly at the back, “How old are you guys? You’re always behaving like kids. If outsiders saw you guys, one the President of the Gu Industries, the other the President of Kaisheng, quarreling here like kindergarteners, they would definitely laugh so hard that their teeth would fall out.”
“Don’t, Uncle. Us kindergarten kids refuse to be compared to them. We definitely don’t quarrel like this. So childish,” Gu Shinian also interrupted from the side.
This time, Gu Jingze and Li Mingyu’s faces both soured.
Fortunately, Lin Che’s condition was fine and she was currently recuperating here.
However, she did not expect someone to come looking for Gu Jingze again when she was about to rest.
“Sir, there’s a crowd of clan relatives from the Gu family waiting outside. They’re asking to meet Sir.”
The clan relatives?
Lin Che looked up.
There was no hint of emotion on Gu Jingze’s face. He merely said calmly, “Oh.”
“Sir, in that case, now…”
“No need to bother about them. They can do whatever they want. I definitely won’t see them.”
Lin Che asked, “Gu Jingze, then what are we going to do?”
Gu Jingze said, “You rest up.”
Once Gu Jingze was done speaking, he pulled the blanket over her properly.
On this day, there was a huge crowd outside the hospital.
Outside, the doctors saw luxury car after luxury car parked downstairs. There were also countless bodyguards walking around. They looked as if they were anxiously waiting for something.
“What are these people doing here? Why are there so many luxury cars?”
“These? All of them are wealthy people. I heard that many company executives have come.”
“Huh? What happened? Did someone extraordinary come to our hospital?”
“Ah. All of them are here because of him?”
“That’s right. I heard that they’re former clan relatives of the Gu family. They’re all here to capitalize on their ties with Gu Jingze. They betrayed Gu Jingze in the past and now, they’re here to beg for forgiveness.”
“Pft. Any random relative of the Gu family is that rich?”
“Of course. We can’t afford to offend any of them. Didn’t you see? Even the hospital chairman is standing at the side, not daring to approach anyone. Among these people, pick any one of them and he will be an absolute tycoon.”
Everyone sighed in admiration. Seeing that no one from the hospital dared to approach, they thought that something had happened to some prominent figure here.
Sensing a clamor downstairs, Lin Che looked out slightly gloomily.
“Why are there so many people outside?”
At the side, Dong Zi said, “Miss, the Gu family’s clan relatives are all waiting outside and refusing to leave. They’ve attracted many spectators.”
Lin Che’s brow furrowed as she looked at Gu Jingze. “It won’t be good if they stay here too.”
Gu Jingze drew in a deep breath and stood up. “Alright. I’ll deal with them.”
“Hey, don’t get into a fight.”
Meanwhile. Black Eagle sniggered, “Look at you. It’s like you’re worried about kindergarten children going out, fighting and causing trouble.”
Lin Che glared at him but nevertheless told Gu Jingze, “You should part without hard feelings. There’s not much point in fighting either.”
Gu Jingze said, “Don’t worry.”
He walked out only after kneading Lin Che’s palm.
When they finally saw Gu Jingze come out, the Gu family’s clan relatives hastily stepped forward.
“Head of the family, the Gu family still needs you.”
“Head of the family, ultimately, we’re still one family. Since it’s a fight within the family, let’s shut our doors and negotiate. Let’s not spoil our relationship.”
