"Really?" Mo Huiling's eyes lit up.
She looked unbelievably at Gu Jingze.
Her heart glowed as she thought that he still loved her deep down inside.
However, Gu Jingze continued, "I let you down first."
"No, not at all. I know you didn't have a choice. You have no feelings for Lin Che. I just thought yesterday that since nothing happened to you when you touched her, you must have already recovered. That was why I dared to touch you. If I knew it was so serious, I would never have touched you."
"You're right. Nothing ever happened when she touched me," Gu Jingze looked at Mo Huiling. "I'm sorry I never told you. What shouldn't have happened between Lin Che and me already happened a long time ago. So the one who betrayed the other from the beginning… was actually me. I'm the one who let you down."
Mo Huiling froze for a long time, wondering if she heard him wrong.
What shouldn't have happened already happened?
He and Lin Che already…
Mo Huiling collapsed and took a few steps back. Her wide eyes stared in shock at Gu Jingze.
Gu Jingze never intended to tell her this.
He initially thought that it was just a one-time thing with Lin Che. And it was because of the drug's effects.
When they divorced, there would be nothing left. Not saying it out would prevent Mo Huiling from getting hurt.
Even if they separated, he wanted to separate on good terms. But he actually made the wrong move. He should have told her earlier. This would have only been fair to her.
"You and Lin Che have already… already…" Mo Huiling still could not believe it and repeated him.
"Huiling, I'm sorry…" Gu Jingze could only say deeply.
Mo Huiling started bawling.
"Why? Why…? Why can you be with her but not with me…"
"This is also why I can touch her and not you. This is not something we can control and right now, we don't know why either. But it just happened to be this way. So, Huiling. Please stop fixating yourself on me. I'm no longer the Gu Jingze who you wanted in the past. Take it that I betrayed our relationship and I hope you'll get over it sooner…"
Mo Huiling cried and looked at Gu Jingze. She already didn't know what to say.
After that, Gu Jingze could only have someone send Mo Huiling back.
Lin Che soon came out and saw Gu Jingze standing there. She asked him strangely, "What happened?"
Gu Jingze smiled and said to Lin Che, "Let's go. Didn't I say that I would take you to the ski park?"
Lin Che chuckled, "Is your body well enough… Let's not force it. You should rest today."
They were going back tomorrow.
Gu Jingze heard this and the little trace of warmth on his face was erased, "Why not? You're belittling my body too much. Relax, even if we go at it again tonight, I'll be able to take it."
He looked at Lin Che, "Shall we try?"
Lin Che kicked his shin, "Get lost. Who wants to try that with you?"
Gu Jingze yelped in pain, "I think you're getting more brazen now."
Lin Che blushed and ran away.
Gu Jingze looked up and saw his bodyguards quickly turn their heads and pretend to have not seen.
Since when were the bodyguards so tactful?
Usually, if someone dared to move a muscle towards him, they would have come rushing forward.
Naturally, after yesterday's events, these people felt even more so that Mrs. Gu was essential.
In the end, no other type of woman was as good as Lin Che. Who knew if there would be another blame-shifting woman like Mo Huiling after that?
Thus, it was better to cherish their current Mrs. Gu.
Perhaps deep down, they had already acknowledged Lin Che as Mrs. Gu. Thus, they saw her as part of the family and naturally weren't going to bother about normal couple squabbles.
Gu Jingze caught up with Lin Che.
Lin Che quickly begged for mercy, "Okay, okay. Let me go."
Gu Jingze laughed and looked at Lin Che, "I'll see if you dare again next time."
"No, I don't dare. I don't dare, alright?"
"You dare to look down on my body? Relax. What can you do to me by yourself?"
Lin Che shook her head and looked at him. Men really acted on their egos. Just yesterday, he was drenched in sweat and on the verge of dying.
"Okay, let's go to the ski park."
The indoor ski park had a completely different climate from the outside.
When Lin Che and Gu Jingze entered the park, it was filled with people fully equipped in ski gear.
She and Gu Jingze suited up together. Because it was Lin Che's first time, she was clumsy and didn't really know how to put on the gear.
Gu Jingze said, "Enough. Don't move. I'll help you, dummy."
Lin Che stuck out her tongue.
Gu Jingze squatted down and put on the strap on her slim leg.
She looked down at Gu Jingze and could not resist touching his hair.
His hair was very soft and it looked fluffy. It really made her want to touch it especially when he was squatting right in front of her. Because he was tall, when he squatted down, it was just nice for her hand to reach.
Gu Jingze felt her teasing him. He looked up at Lin Che who was smiling mischievously, "You are seriously… getting more daring now, aren't you?"
Nobody dared to treat him this way before.
Lin Che laughed and said, "What's wrong? I'm just touching it. Your hair is especially soft like a friend I had."
"Friend?" Gu Jingze asked curiously. "Who?"
"The name is Dou Dou."
"…" Gu Jingze frowned. "When you were a kid?"
"Yes, my nanny owned a little Pekingese. Its fur was messy and curly and it was especially soft."
Gu Jingze stood up, "Very well, you dare to call me a dog. You want to die, don't you?"
Lin Che said, "How is a dog insulting? A dog is a man's best friend…"
"I think you are really getting bolder. Is it because I haven't tamed you in a long time?" Gu Jingze asked as he stepped closer to Lin Che.
"Ah, well, I have seen every part of your body. I don't need to be polite with you…" Lin Che said and pointed at his lower area. "I'm sorry, buddy. Your life was in my hands during the entire last night."
"…" This Lin Che even dared to talk about his past to taunt him.
Gu Jingze said, "Fine, you're right. It's been a while and your little buddy misses you. Do you want to say hello again?"
"…" She did not!
Lin Che wanted to run away but was stopped by Gu Jingze, "Come back. Where do you think you're going? I thought you're not afraid anymore? You've seen every part of my body and now you're just saying hello. What are you afraid of?"
Lin Che was defeated. Indeed, her shamelessness was no match for his.
Both of them finally geared up. Gu Jingze taught her how to ski. Because Lin Che was nervous, he held her the whole time and they skied especially slowly.
