"Come back," Gu Jingze tugged at Lin Che who was about to run away. "What is there to protect? She can't wait for me to bully you more in order to carry some grandkids."
At this moment, Lin Che raised her head and saw a few people walking beside Mu Wanqing. It seemed like they were here to report a few matters.
Mu Wanqing appeared unyielding in front of others. Lin Che had seen the way she punished Lin Li. Mu Wanqing was not someone to be trifled with.
A while later, someone came over and quietly told Gu Jingze that Gu Jingyu was here.
Lin Che was dazed as she looked at Gu Jingze, "Gu Jingyu is here. I should….."
Gu Jingze replied, "It's Jingyan's wedding. He had to come back either way. There shouldn't be a problem. I'll go take a look. You wait here for me."
"Oh, okay," Lin Che nodded her head upon hearing this.
As Gu Jingze left, Lin Che started to walk by the side.
The crowd by the sides seemed to be talking about this wedding. Lin Che heard someone say, "The marriage between the Lu family and Gu family is bound to make many envious. However, the bride and the groom have known each other since high school. They can be considered childhood sweethearts and are naturally an appropriate match for each other."
"There sure are a lot of people here today."
"Of course. Who doesn't want to rush to this Gu family's wedding? I had to get my invitation through various means and ways."
"Why haven't we seen Gu Jingyan?"
"That person likes to keep a low profile and is definitely hiding inside. It's not as easy to catch a glimpse of her as you wish."
"Look at the one over there. That must be Madam Gu, right?"
"That's right. Mu Wanqing, Miss Mu. She was magnificent and peerless in her era. Do you see? Now, that is pure gracefulness right there. Be sure to go up to her in a bit and see if you can strike up a conversation with her."
"I don't think there is any possibility. The madam doesn't like to interact much with others."
"Today is her daughter's wedding. If she is happy, she might be willing to speak for a bit with you."
Lin Che always heard from others about how aloof the Gu family was. However, she never once felt that they were unapproachable.
Lin Che was still caught in her own thoughts when she heard someone say that Lu Chuxia was here.
She paused for a moment as she turned towards the entrance.
Below, Lu Chuxia was dressed in a brilliant red. Who would have thought it would be the exact same color that Lin Che was wearing?
Lin Che stared blankly for a moment. Afterward, she rushed towards Gu Jingze. Her heart began to feel some discomfort.
As Lu Chuxia walked in, she began to draw the attention of the crowd.
Lu Chuxia was a socialite who was extremely well known in the circle.
Furthermore, she was the sister-in-law at Gu Jingyan's wedding. Naturally, everyone would look at her the minute she walked in.
Lu Chuxia looked around and immediately saw that most outstanding person inside: Gu Jingze.
She ignored all the other eligible bachelors staring at her with their jaws dropped and made a beeline for Gu Jingze.
"Jingze." Hearing her voice, the surrounding people turned to look.
That intimate tone was really misleading.
Did the Lu family and Gu family have another connection?
Gu Jingze couldn't possibly have a relationship with Lu Chuxia.
That would be huge news.
Gu Jingze was originally looking for Gu Jingyu. He saw Lu Chuxia, paused and asked, "Why is your brother not here yet?"
"How would I know? I guess so. He's always been like this. Don't worry. He will come eventually. How could he give up such a good wife? This is such a compatible marriage and he's not blind. Why would he not want such a high-flying wife and find someone else?"
She wanted to talk more, but Gu Jingze didn't seem to look at her as he said, "As long as he's not late."
Then, he turned around and left.
Lu Chuxia saw this and quickly tried to chase after him.
Gu Jingze was too fast and Lu Chuxia couldn't quite keep up since she was wearing high heels. She needed to maintain her image and could only watch him leave quickly. She carried her skirt and steadily followed him.
"Jingze, where are you running off to? You…" she called out and just as she turned a corner, she saw that Gu Jingze had already returned to Lin Che's side.
Lu Chuxia's voice fell and her eyes rested on the sight of Lin Che and Gu Jingze standing together.
Gu Jingze was dressed in black while Lin Che in red. They somehow looked extremely well together. Especially when Lin Che's dark red dress matched with her black heels, she and Gu Jingze looked like they were dressed in couple's clothing.
Lin Che's red dress was especially enchanting and did not appear solemn at all. The clarity between her brows enhanced her outfit even more. This type of amalgamation made people feel as if they were riding a cable car, making their eyes and heart quiver at the same time.
In comparison, Lu Chuxia's exquisite dress suddenly didn't appear any more refreshing.
Lu Chuxia didn't think that her meticulous get-up would clash with Lin Che's.
And when Lin Che stood beside Gu Jingze, she appeared even more outstanding.
Lu Chuxia stood still. When she saw Mu Wanqing approaching from a distance, she quickly smiled and greeted Mu Wanqing, "Aunty."
"Oh my, Chuxia! I almost didn't recognize you. You're so pretty today," Mu Wanqing said and welcomed her.
Lu Chuxia bashfully smiled, "Thank you, Aunty, for your compliment."
Mu Wanqing spoke politely before turning to Lin Che and Gu Jingze. She smiled and said, "Jingze, please grab some food for Lin Che. When the ceremony begins later, it's going to take a while and I doubt both of you will be able to eat anything."
Lin Che hurriedly replied, "It's fine, Mom. If I eat too much, my tummy will bloat and I won't look nice in this dress anymore."
"How can that possibly be? Little Che, you look amazing wearing anything. Okay, hurry and grab a bite. What if you guys get too hungry later? Jingze, bring Little Che inside."
"Okay," Gu Jingze immediately pulled Lin Che into the room.
Lu Chuxia never thought that Mu Wanqing would be this close to Lin Che.
Lu Chuxia watched Lin Che leave before walking to Mu Wanqing's side, "Aunty, Lin Che… I recall that she's a celebrity?"
"Yes, that's right. She's a celebrity," Mu Wanqing said. "Have you heard of her as well?"
Lu Chuxia chuckled, "Yes, I have heard of her. I just never thought that Aunty would be so open-minded as to allow a celebrity to marry into the Gu family."
Mu Wanqing heard this and raised a brow slightly. She looked at Lu Chuxia, "Lin Che is an excellent lady. Jingze likes her and everyone in the family likes her too. Furthermore, she is the Young Madam of our Gu family and she'll be the future matriarch of the Gu family."
Lu Chuxia's eyes moved.
What did Mu Wanqing mean by that? Lin Che was going to be the future… the future matriarch of the Gu family?
Ha, how could the Gu family allow a commoner to take over Mu Wanqing's current position?
Lu Chuxia refused to believe it. But now that the Gu family already had Lin Che, they naturally wouldn't allow others to belittle their family's Young Madam.
