Chapter 25 It’s Mine Since I Wiped My Drool On It
As he said this, Mu Wanqing said again from behind, “Bring Young Madam downstairs to change her clothes first. Jingze is really not thoughtful. Her clothes are too tight, so how uncomfortable would she be if she wore this at home?”
Quickly, the maid respectfully led Lin Che to change her clothes.
As Gu Jingze watched her leave, he heard Gu Xiande saying from inside, “This lady is not bad.”
Gu Jingze said, “Is it because it’s not Huiling that you think she’s not bad?”
Gu Xiande looked at Gu Jingze. “One look at her and you can tell she’s neat and natural. She’s a good woman. Compared to that Huiling of yours, one is heaven and the other is dirt.”
Mu Wanqing also smiled and said, “Yes, I liked this lass from the moment I saw her. Your grandfather has never complimented anyone. If he says she’s good, she must be very good.”
Mu Wanqing’s words were indeed true. Gu Xiande was critical towards people. He would not easily give out compliments.
It was really rare that Lin Che could make Gu Xiande open his mouth and give her a compliment.
Gu Jingze did not expect that Lin Che would so easily gain the affection of his family members. Mu Wanqing simply said, “Since you’re here anyway, just stay for the night.”
Lin Che was shocked. She quickly looked towards Gu Jingze, but did not expect him to say without any hesitation, “Okay.”
At that moment, Lin Che only felt a string of question marks whizzing across her mind.
It was only after Gu Jingze brought Lin Che into his room and Lin Che saw the two doors close that she lifted her head and asked Gu Jingze, “Why do we have to stay here?”
Gu Jingze said, “Is there anything inappropriate about staying here?”
“Of course! I’m so unused to staying here.”
Gu Jingze looked at her. “What else can we do? If we tell them that we want to return home, won’t it draw a bit of attention to what we’re trying so hard to hide?”
Lin Che said, “We can… we can say that we’re blissful newly-weds and we make too much noise at night, so we’re worried about disturbing them.”
“…” Gu Jingze said, “The room is completely soundproof. There is no such problem.”
“…” Lin Che was totally speechless. As she looked at him, she thought to herself, That was exactly what she meant. In any case, it would have been better to find any random excuse but instead, he had replied so solemnly.
Lin Che could only glance at him before turning her head to sweep her eyes across the room. Its size could not compare to that of the Gu residence. It was a suite with a bedroom inside. There was a simple study room outside, a big executive chair, and no couch…
Lin Che held her forehead gloomily and thought about how they were to sleep for the night.
However, Gu Jingze had already removed his jacket. He looked at the bed and said to her, “I’ll sleep on the floor tonight. You sleep on the bed.”
Upon hearing this, Lin Che’s heart skipped a beat. She did not expect him to actively suggest sleeping on the floor. It made her a little touched. But she was also embarrassed. “Why don’t I sleep on the floor? Anyway, I only need to lay on more blankets.”
As she said this, she walked to the wardrobe and opened it. She discovered rows of his various clothes hanging inside. She decided that they were very beautiful and looked extremely expensive. However, there was not a single blanket.
Good lord, his family must have done this on purpose.
Refusing to believe it, Lin Che said, “I probably can’t sleep on the floor. There’s only one bed, so why don’t we ask someone to send in another set…”
“Are you trying to tell them clearly that we sleep on separate beds?”
“Then what do we do now…”
Upon seeing her eagerness to keep her distance from him, Gu Jingze could not help but feel slightly irritated.
He removed his jacket and threw it directly onto the bed. He said, “I don’t care what you do, but I’m going to sleep anyway.”
Lin Che glanced at him. This person had just said earlier that he would sleep on the floor, but now that he knew that there were no blankets, he was about to fight for the bed.
“No. I want to sleep on the bed too. You were the one who insisted on staying here so think of a way to resolve this.” She did not believe that he could not solve these problems.
As she said this, she jumped onto the bed directly, burrowed into the blankets, and rolled back and forth once across the bed. Then, she lifted her chin towards him with a look full of defiance. “Right now, the bed is completely covered with my smell, the bacteria on my body, and everything else. Do you still want to sleep here?”
While saying this, she even licked her hand and rubbed it all over the blankets as she refused to be outdone.
Gu Jingze’s face darkened. “Lin Che, what are you doing?!”
Lin Che lifted her head. “What? You haven’t seen how dogs claim their territory? They just piss on it to prove that it’s theirs. I’m doing the exact same thing right now. Now, this bed is mine.”
Gu Jingze pointed to the blanket. “I’m referring to what you were doing just now!”
“Wiping off my drool. Why? Do you want some?”
Just the thought of how she had wiped her drool on the blanket made Gu Jingze feel uncomfortable. He shot a pointed look at her, turned around, pulled open the door, and walked out.
Lin Che immediately started laughing out loud in the room. “You admitted defeat so easily, Gu Jingze. You’re not good enough.”
Feeling proud, she rolled around on the bed. However, she suddenly saw the door opening again and Gu Jingze walked in without hesitation. His gaze fixed on her aggressively and made her feel slightly guilty for a moment. She stepped backward.
“Hey, Gu Jingze. What are you doing? I was just kidding earlier…” she said quickly.
But she watched as Gu Jingze jumped onto the bed directly, pulled Lin Che over, and easily carried her over his shoulder.
Gu Jingze’s body was extremely strong. He was obviously tall and well-built. When he really took action, his movements were clean and efficient.
On his shoulder, Lin Che was struggling recklessly. “Gu Jingze, what are you doing? Let go of me!”
She punched him with her small fists, but they were of no use.
The door opened and Lin Che was immediately thrown out of the bedroom and into the small study room outside.
As she watched the door close in front of her eyes, Lin Che banged on the door angrily. “Gu Jingze, are you a man or not? You’re fighting with a woman over a bed.”
“Sorry, I can’t tell which part of you is like a woman,” Gu Jingze said bluntly.
Even angrier, Lin Che felt as if her lungs were about to catch on fire. “Yes, I don’t behave like a woman. Your Huiling is the most feminine person there is.”
Gu Jingze said candidly, “That’s true.”
Lin Che’s felt stifled when she heard this. “Then, why don’t you go look for her? You can’t do that so you’re just going to bully me instead?”
Hearing her say this, Gu Jingze felt very annoyed. He simply said, “You think that if I could, I would still be here now?”
Outside, Lin Che looked at her surroundings. There was only a large executive chair that was impossible for her to sleep on. On the other hand, the high-quality carpet was extremely comfortable. She sat down on it and tested it out. It was very soft too. However, she could not just sleep here like this.
“Gu Jingze, you really have the heart to make me sleep here? It’s so cold here.”
Inside the room, Gu Jingze’s heart softened as well when he heard Lin Che’s tone softening.
However, when he looked at the bed that she had messed up completely, he was filled with anger again. He walked over and lifted the blanket. Indeed her scent still lingered on the blanket, but it was slightly refreshing, enough to make his heart flutter.
“How can there be a husband who treats his own wife like this? Gu Jingze, are you really that cruel?”
Gu Jingze pulled away the blanket and recalled that she had even spread her drool on it.
Subconsciously, he felt even more uncomfortable. He said in her direction, “You’re tall and strong. Nothing will happen to you, even if you sleep outside for one night.”
“You…” Lin Che truly and completely gave up hope. As she laid there, she thought to herself in disappointment, Gu Jingze, just you wait .
Just because he had Mo Huiling in his heart, he was so cruel to other women.
