Chapter 26: Someone’s Sleeping Position is Really Ugly
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Gu Jingze, if you really desire Mo Huiling so badly, then elope with her. Venting your anger out on me for no reason… are you even a man?! You don’t have the guts to defy your family. Also, you don’t have the guts to reveal to Mo Huiling that you married me only because of her. You… you’re just a cowardly man,” Lin Che scolded him angrily before hearing the door click. It was completely locked…
Gu Jingze did not make a single sound the entire time.
Lin Che laid there waiting for a long time, but Gu Jingze did not react at all. She hugged her arms as she lay down and could not help but wonder if she had gone too far out of line when speaking to Gu Jingze earlier.
To be honest, it was understandable for him to be angry. Because of one mistake that she had made, it changed his initial plans for life. Of course, he was angry.
If it was not for her, his family may not have pressured him so and may also not have used Mo Huiling to threaten him immediately into a marriage. What happened with Lin Che gave his family hope, which was why the situation thus became so urgent.
However, Lin Che was in a very unfortunate situation too. She had merely wanted to cook up a scandal but instead, she had inexplicably given up her first time.
Thinking about it, she still felt gloomy.
Lin Che ultimately fell asleep after letting her thoughts run wild, having toiled throughout the day.
Alone in the room, Gu Jingze heard the din outside gradually turn silent. However, he lay on his arms, unable to fall asleep.
He only opened the door to the bedroom when he wanted to go to the bathroom.
Lin Che was curled up into a ball at the entrance and she looked very uncomfortable.
Gu Jingze walked over and looked at her silently. After some time, he lowered his head and reached his arms out to lift her up.
Lin Che was indeed very light as he carried her in his arms. He still felt as if she was weightless. Her sleeping face was scrunched up and had a tinge of roundness unlike her sharp chin when she was standing. When he looked at her now, she looked more like a baby sleeping sweetly. From time to time, she would stick out her tongue slightly to lick her cherry-red lips.
He carried her to the bed and looked at her silently before shaking his head and going into the bathroom.
When he came out, she was still in deep sleep.
He lifted the blanket and burrowed under it, thinking to himself that both of them could put up with this arrangement since it was for just one night.
Who knew that during the night, Lin Che did not keep her limbs to herself while sleeping.
Just when Gu Jingze finally felt sleepy after his bout with insomnia, a hand suddenly hit his body.
He gritted his teeth as he looked down at her slender hand. He pushed her hand aside and flipped his body over, unwilling to bother with her.
Finally after turning drowsy once more, he again felt a leg rest itself over his thigh.
Just like that, he alternated between sleep and awakeness for some time. After God knows how long, he gradually fell asleep due to fatigue after seemingly getting used to her attacks.
When she woke up in the morning, Lin Che realized with surprise that she was actually on the bed.
However, she could not remember how she had gotten there.
Could it be that Gu Jingze suddenly discovered his conscience last night and carried her onto the bed?
But at this time, Gu Jingze was nowhere to be found in the room.
Lin Che quickly ran out, only to see that the entire family was seated and eating breakfast in the dining room.
Gu Jingze ate his breakfast blankly, not sparing Lin Che even a glance.
Mu Wanqing smiled and called out to Lin Che, “Come and sit down.”
Lin Che could only glare at Gu Jingze sneakily. This guy… was he not intentionally humiliating her? He did not wake her up even after he woke up, making her become the last person to reach the dining room.
Lin Che sat down and said sheepishly, “Sorry, I woke up late.”
All smiles, Mu Wanqing said, “No worries. You must have been tired yesterday night. Jingze didn’t wake you up because he adores you.”
It would be a wonder if he really did adore her.
She looked at Gu Jingze who was just holding his spoon elegantly. He looked like a dignified Persian cat that was eating, his every movement so meticulous that it made him good-looking.
However, he did not look at her at all.
Mu Wanqing’s words were ambiguous and made Lin Che feel even more embarrassed.
She had been tired last night because she had quarreled with Gu Jingze for almost half the night. In the end, not only did she fail to win, but she was also really exhausted both mentally and physically.
When Lin Che recalled this, she could not help but glare at Gu Jingze.
Gu Jingze caught her gaze this time, turned to her, and rolled his eyes.
Mu Wanqing saw their interaction and immediately started smiling.
It looked like the two of them interacted quite a lot.
When she initially made the two of them marry, she was still worried that their relationship would suffer due to Gu Jingze’s overly aloof personality. But now, it looked like they actually got along pretty well.
This child, Gu Jingze, was different from his two brothers. He did not like talking and did not like dealing with people either. He was arrogant and overbearing. When she made him interact with a girl, she usually saw no reaction from him at all. It was really surprising that he could interact with Lin Che in such a manner..
Mu Wanqing said, “Lin Che, you’re really too skinny. Eat more.”
As she said this, she hurriedly piled food on Lin Che’s plate.
Lin Che said frantically, “No need, there’s no need. I can help myself, Mother.”
“No way. You’re really too skinny.” Mu Wanqing continued, “Now that you’re part of the family, we must make you plumper.”
Lin Che said, “Does being slim not look good?”
Mu Wanqing said, “Being slightly plumper looks good too. Why? Who dislikes it? Does Jingze dare to give you the cold shoulder for being plump?”
Gu Jingze looked at Lin Che.
She was indeed a little too skinny. When she placed her arms on the table, the expanse of skin was white and clear, and her arms looked like they would break if someone tried to bend it.
“There’s nothing for me to dislike,” he said.
Mu Wanqing said, “See, I told you Jingze wouldn’t dislike it.”
Lin Che looked at Gu Jingze. Of course, he did not dislike it. They were in a fake marriage anyway. It would be fine as long as his Huiling did not get fat.
So Lin Che curled her lip and said, “Mother, don’t listen to him. Men are all the same. Although they say that they’ll like you whether or not you’re fat, they still like slim women in their hearts.”
After hearing this, Mu Wanqing paused before laughing out loud.
There were waves of laughter at the dining table. As Mu Wanqing looked at Lin Che, she truly started liking her more and more. Her words were amusing and her personality was refreshing. She was not pretentious at all.
After eating, Mu Wanqing even gave them a heap of food to take away before reluctantly walking them out of the house.
Lin Che walked away from the Gu residence with Gu Jingze. In the car, Lin Che tugged at Gu Jingze and said, “I didn’t expect your mother to be such a nice person. Before this, you talked about her as if she was very difficult. You scared me to death.”
As Gu Jingze looked at her face brimming with happiness, he gazed at her deeply.
He was very surprised too. It seemed like everything proceeded smoothly when she came to the Gu residence. He could tell that everyone, whether it was his grandfather or his mother, all liked her very much.
However, he still could not help but say, “As long as it’s not Mo Huiling, my mother likes everyone else.”
As expected, Lin Che turned her head to glare at him. She pursed her lips and thought to herself that this man was really a jerk.
Lin Che suddenly remembered that she still had many red packets yet to be opened. She decided to take them out and started opening them.
When she opened them and took a look, she saw that the thick red packets did not hold money. They held title deeds.
Shocked, she flipped open the deeds and was then truly astounded. The red packet that his family had given her was actually a piece of land behind a mountain in B city. The red packet that Grandfather had given also did not contain money. It was the ownership of an apartment in the central business district.
Lin Che yelled out in surprise. “Good lord, is this a red packet?”
