Chapter 27 I Won’t Let You Die
Gu Jingze merely glanced at her sideways before looking back towards the front indifferently.
“A title deed and property deed. Is there a problem?”
“Your family is really too generous!” Lin Che said.
Gu Jingze said, “As the Gu family’s Young Madam, you deserve it.”
Lin Che said, “So these are all given to me?”
Gu Jingze said, “Of course they are.”
Lin Che looked at the title and property deeds before raising her head. “They are too valuable. How can I accept them?”
Gu Jingze said, “Just take them. They’re supposed to be given to the Young Madam of the Gu family and you are, in fact, the Young Madam. Thus, you don’t have to feel uncomfortable.”
Lin Che thought that his words made complete sense. While smiling, she looked at the two red packets repeatedly. “It looks like there are some benefits to tolerating your bad temper.”
Gu Jingze looked at her. “You money-grubber.”
Lin Che was in a good mood. She turned her head and said, “Otherwise, what else is the point of marriage? It’s either for love or for money. Obviously, marrying you out of love doesn’t make sense. It’s only money that would make sense.”
Gu Jingze shook his head speechlessly. He looked at her smiling until her eyes became slits. Her cheeks also became slightly rounder. They were white but tinged with a little red and she actually looked a little cute.
His gaze fixed upon her for some time before he turned his head. However, right at this moment, he saw that his phone was ringing. It was a call from Mo Huiling.
However, Gu Jingze subconsciously glanced at Lin Che beside him first. Seeing as she was still scrutinizing the title deed in detail, he picked up the phone.
However, his voice was slightly softer than usual.
“Jingze, you promised to celebrate my birthday with me tonight. I called to confirm which restaurant we should go to. What do you want to eat?”
“It’s your birthday. You decide,” he said.
“Alright. Then I’ll make a reservation at the Western restaurant we usually go to.”
“Jingze, are you feeling unwell? Why is your voice so soft?” Mo Huiling asked, confused.
Once again, Gu Jingze cast a sideways glance at the person beside him. When he saw that she had raised her eyes and looked over, he subconsciously felt a little guilty. However, he said into the phone, “It’s nothing. I’m in the car. We’ll discuss it again when I get home. Let me know after you make the reservation.”
“Oh, alright.” Mo Huiling hung up the phone.
Gu Jingze put his phone away and looked at Lin Che. “What are you looking at?”
Naturally, Lin Che had heard that he was having a conversation with Mo Huiling. Pretending to be calm, she shrugged her shoulders and said, “Nothing. Only the two of us are in the car. Who else can I look at besides you?”
As she said this, she lowered her head again and started touching the title deeds while looking like an extremely engrossed money-grubber.
Gu Jingze drew in a deep breath before turning his head away.
Lin Che thought to herself, Forget it. It was a fake marriage from the outset anyway. It’s none of my business that he’s dating someone else.
The money in her hands was still the most reliable.
Very soon after, they arrived home.
However, the car had just turned around a corner when another car suddenly knocked into it abruptly.
Within a mere moment, the car was dented on one side and smoke immediately started rising from the front.
Several cars that had been stealthily following behind quickly rushed over. When the car door was opened, everyone saw Gu Jingze and Lin Che hugging together tightly…
When that accident occurred, Lin Che did not realize what was happening. It was only when she was laying on his stiff and hard body that her head felt a little clearer.
However, the inside of the car was in a complete mess. Gu Jingze’s expression was somber and as cold as ice. His eyes seemed to be unfocused before they finally focused on Lin Che’s face.
She quickly said, “How are you feeling? Gu Jingze, are you alright?”
The car had knocked on his side of the car and it scared her to death.
However, Gu Jingze just stared at her pale face. Suddenly, he seemed to remember something and lifted her arm in one swift motion.
On her thigh, there was an obvious slash and it was impossible to discern what was blood and what was flesh.
Gu Jingze’s face darkened immediately.
“All of you, move aside. Madam is injured.” Gu Jingze’s voice was unexpectedly a little dull and hoarse. Without waiting for the people outside to react, he had already pulled Lin Che’s arms towards him and carried her out from below.
In the split second that the accident had happened earlier, it was Lin Che who had flung caution to the winds and threw herself onto him.
If not for her, he would have been the one injured this very moment.
Lin Che only felt a surge of pain on her body after he lifted her up in his arms. Thereafter, the pain began to intensify.
The people outside were shocked. When they saw Gu Jingze carrying Lin Che as he walked out hurriedly, they quickly followed behind him noisily.
At the hospital.
Lin Che had lost an excessive amount of blood, causing her to feel weak and feeble. She looked at Gu Jingze beside her and felt his hand holding hers. She did not know why, but with the heat of his palm consoling her with its warmth, she seemed to feel that it was not all that painful anymore.
However, when she looked down, she saw that his white shirt had been drenched in blood.
She could not help but laugh. She looked at his cold face and said, “Gu Jingze, I’m not dying now right?”
Gu Jingze’s heart froze. He subconsciously scrunched up his face as well. His chilly gaze rested on Lin Che in a castigating manner, but he did not dare to be too fierce. “What nonsense are you spouting? You’re not going to die.”
“But I lost a lot of blood,” I said.
“The doctor is treating you. You lost a lot of blood only because a major artery in your thigh was slashed.
“Ah, a major artery… it sounds scary. Tell me. If I die, will you be able to free yourself immediately and fly away with your Miss Mo?”
Gu Jingze face darkened. There were turbulent waves in his jet-black irises and his brow furrowed. “Shut up, I won’t let you die.” When he heard the name ‘Mo Huiling’, he actually felt slightly impatient. The feeling of not wanting to mention her silently surged in his heart.
If she had not called, he would not have been constantly distracted and he would have realized the abnormalities outside.
Lin Che said, “Really? But it really hurts.”
Gu Jingze looked at her small face all scrunched up. She was as pale as a sheet of paper and her small and weak lips were shriveled together. Her appearance made his heart seize up.
He raised his head. “Didn’t you hear that? Madam said that she’s in pain. Get the doctor to treat her quickly!”
Qin Hao had been following him by his side. When he saw an expression of extreme gloominess overcast Gu Jingze’s face, he quickly turned around to urge the other people to increase their pace.
Gu Jingze’s gaze stayed on Lin Che’s face. When he saw her turning her head away seemingly to hide her pain, his eyes darkened. He used his large hand to turn her face towards him. As he pinched her delicate chin, his gaze was black. “Look at me. Don’t overthink.”
“Mkay…” she hummed, but she still could not bear the pain.
Gu Jingze’s gaze landed on her lips, which had dried and shriveled from the excessive loss of blood. Her lips were slightly parted, her breathing was heavy, and her brows had converged. He pinched her chin and turned his body to move closer to her before directly blocking her lips, which had been continuously opening and closing…
