Gu Jingze looked down and released Lin Che. His anger towards her had yet to completely dissipate. He said, “Alright. Now, you can get lost.”
What? He was telling her to get lost now that he was done kissing her?
Lin Che glared at Gu Jingze. “Gu Jingze, stop messing around. You’re seriously injured right now. I came here so that I can stay here and look after you.”
Gu Jingze said coldly, “No need. I have plenty of maids here looking after me. Since you hate me so much, I don’t want to continue holding up your time either.”
Lin Che wondered who exactly hated who. “Gu Jingze, let me get this straight. You were clearly the one who treated me so roughly first. Why did that result in you hating you?!”
Gu Jingze sneered and looked at Lin Che. “I treated you roughly? You were the one who rejected me first. Of course, you probably wouldn’t have been so opposed to it if it had been Jingyu. Sorry. From the start, the person you wanted to drug and marry was Gu Jingyu. It was I who shouldn’t have stayed in that room.”
“Hey, Gu Jingze. Why did you mention Gu Jingyu again out of nowhere? He’s just a senior in the industry. Our relationship is totally not what you think it is.” Lin Che was about to spring to her feet.
Gu Jingze asked, “What kind of relationship am I thinking about? Yes, it’s just a relationship where you give one another love token. Why? You gave him a wrist-watch. What did he give you in return? A necklace? A ring? But I’ll give you a piece of advice. Nothing will come of the two of you anyway. His last relationship ended because of my mother’s interference. Do you think that my mother will be able to tolerate a person who was once my wife have a relationship with Jingyu instead?”
Lin Che froze. When did he find out about the watch?
She looked at Gu Jingze in disbelief. “What nonsense are you spouting? Gu Jingyu asked me for the watch. He said that I should thank him for his care towards me. I also thought that I should gift him a little something since he’s usually very caring towards me and is always helping me improve my acting skills. So, I just asked Yu Minmin to casually buy something for him.”
The creases between Gu Jingze’s eyebrows seemed to smooth out a little but he still looked as if he had not completely relaxed.
Yu Minmin bought the watch?
It was just a casual gift of thanks?
Lin Che said, “How could you think that there’s something between us just because of a present? I… There’s no way I would do that. I told Gu Jingyu from the start that I’m already married. He knows it too. We’re just friends.”
Gu Jingze’s eyes twitched. In reality, this was also nearly the same as what he was thinking. He had known a long time ago that a present did not mean anything but at the time, he had not been able to control his own thoughts.
He simply did not want to see her have relations with any man.
Even if it was his younger brother.
This was despite the fact that he knew that he was being a little overbearing given their initial agreement that he would not interfere with her personal life. He also clearly knew that logically, he should not interfere with her work and social relations. Even if they were a real couple, they should still give each other freedom and personal space to make friends.
However, Gu Jingze actually wanted to go against their mutual agreement because of her.
Now that he had heard Lin Che say that the present was merely chosen by Yu Minmin, he unexpectedly seemed to feel much more at ease all of a sudden. Like a warm day after a period of chill, his face also followed and actually softened a little.
Gu Jingze said, “Even if you’re just friends… don’t you feel that giving him a watch is slightly too suggestive?”
Lin Che said, “Then what should I have given him?”
“Forget it. With your level of intelligence, you wouldn’t have been able to think of such things anyway. The next time you need to get a gift, you can let me know and I’ll get someone to help you choose it. Wouldn’t that do?”
“Then that’s no different from you giving the present,” Lin Che said even more incredulously.
“We’re a married couple. What’s the difference between me giving the gift and you giving it?” Gu Jingze asked.
Lin Che still had something to say but she caught a glimpse of a large amount of blood seeping through the bandage on Gu Jingze’s shoulder.
Lin Che was immediately shocked
“Good lord, Gu Jingze. Your shoulder is bleeding.”
Gu Jingze froze. He turned his head to the side to take a look. Raising his brow, he saw Lin Che’s face turn white from anxiousness. He could not bear to make her feel this way and said coolly, “It’s nothing. It’s just a superficial wound.”
“Doctor- Doctor, come and take a look. Quick!” She hastily began yelling as she held Gu Jingze’s arm on one side. “Does it hurt? It probably hurts a lot. Stop moving around recklessly. You’re already in this state but you’re still not staying still. Now look what you did, it’s bleeding.”
Gu Jingze really felt that he had gone mad. Over the past two days, he had been so angry because of her but now that he was seeing her so anxious, he also followed suit.
He thought that making her worry a little was not wrong either. Then, she would not push him away for no reason again and say that she hated him.
Gu Jingze said, “That’s enough. Stop shouting. If you shout more, the doctor will think I’m about to die. I’m fine. I’m really fine.”
Lin Che looked at the wound. The blood streamed down like water and the expanse of bright-red pricked at her eyes.
How bad were his injuries exactly? Nevertheless, he had actually still kissed her so hard and spoken to her for so long earlier.
Did he not know that he was very severely injured? That he had just escaped the jaws of death?
She also felt that she was to blame. Knowing that he was ill, she still stood there watching him and speaking to him for so long.
What exactly had he been through the night before to be injured to this extent?
Lin Che really felt that although the people standing at the top of the pyramid were always looked up to, they had many more burdens to bear than others.
Lin Che felt truly sad and worried inside. Just then, she saw the doctors arrive. She quickly turned her head and asked, “Doctor, take a look at him quickly. Why did he start bleeding?”
The doctors walked over in a hurry. They immediately saw the wound and began tidying it up together while in their white robes.
Gu Jingze sat there unmoving. When the bandages on his shoulder were removed, Lin Che covered her mouth. Looking at the ghastly wound, she still could not imagine what exactly Gu Jingze had experienced yesterday.
His flesh seemed to have been torn apart by the explosion and the entire expanse was badly mutilated. The bandages which were soaked in fresh blood scattered all over the floor. However, Gu Jingze merely looked at his wound with his head turned to the side without moving at all. It was as if the arm did not belong to him at all.
The doctors only patched up everything and bandaged Gu Jingze’s wound anew after a lot of difficulties. Lin Che looked at the staunch and unwavering Gu Jingze. It was truly the first time she had met a man who was so formidable. He was so formidable that it seemed as if nothing could ever challenge his limits.
What exactly had he been through while growing up that led him to become such a formidable man today?
She thought to herself that apart from the glamor of being in the Gu family, there had to be even more unknown hardships that outsiders could not see.
Gu Jingze was a man. However, he had too much weight on his shoulders. He had no choice but to become powerful, more powerful than any ordinary man.
Lin Che could not help but sigh with emotion. As she looked at this unordinary man, she was moved by the determination on his face.
