She quickly held back a maid and asked, "Your Sir is busy?"
The maid said, "Madam, Sir has been in the study room all along. He didn't come out at all."
Lin Che pondered for a bit before wheeling herself to the study room.
"Gu Jingze?" She knocked on the door and said, "Gu Jingze, what's up with you? Are you angry?"
However, there was no movement inside.
Lin Che said, "Didn't I say that it won't happen again in the future? Also, it really wasn't something I initiated. I'm also very confused as to how things became like this. What else do you want me to do…"
Right at this moment, the door opened swiftly.
Gu Jingze looked at her with a steely expression. "Who told you that I was angry?"
But with a swish, the door was shut again.
Lin Che was once again shut off outside the door. Flabbergasted, she said, "And still, he said he wasn't angry…"
He really said one thing but meant another.
Left with no choice, she pushed her wheelchair outside only to see someone walking in from the outside.
It was a man who looked to be in his thirties, dressed in a blue suit from head to toe.
She had never met him, so her bewilderment showed on her face.
When the man saw her, he immediately smiled and walked over to her. "Madam Gu, we finally meet. Nice to meet you."
Lin Che blanked out. She pointed at herself and said, "You know me?"
His eyes crinkled as he smiled. He looked very reliable and very approachable.
"Madam Gu, I'm Mr. Gu's doctor. My name is Chen Yucheng. You can call me Doctor Chen. You must have heard about me from Mr. Gu."
"He never mentioned…" Lin Che said.
"…" Chen Yucheng continued to smile with his eyes crinkled. He said, "Alright, hehe. Mr. Gu is just that kind of person. He's firm in his speech but soft in his heart. In his heart, I actually carry some weight too."
Lin Che did not realize this at all.
She looked at Chen Yucheng with a slight pity and said consolingly, "Yes, Gu Jingze has a personality that's weirder than normal. But it's fine after you get used to it."
Chen Yucheng was still smiling with his eyes crinkled. He looked to be a very pleasant and sunny person.
"I've heard of you very early on. It's a true honor to be able to meet Madam Gu today. Eh, that's right. What happened to Mr. Gu? Why are you outside?"
At a loss for words, Lin Che said, "He's not… he seems to be angry."
"Oh? So that's what's happening. What happened exactly? Can you tell me first?"
Lin Che was still somewhat hesitant.
As if he had sensed her hesitation, Chen Yucheng said, "Relax, Madam Gu. I'm aware of everything concerning Mr. Gu. As you know, he has been ill for many years. I've been continuously following up on and studying his symptoms. So if anything happens, Mr. Gu will usually tell me everything, no matter how important or trivial the matter."
Since he knew about Gu Jingze's illness, he was likely a person that Gu Jingze was close to and trusted.
Thus, Lin Che told him about the matter.
When he was done listening, Chen Yucheng wanted to burst out in laughter. He raised his eyes and seemed to have thought of something.
Lin Che said as she was vexed, "What do you think? What should I do now? I'm wondering if he is so angry because he regrets marrying me? If it were Miss Mo, there definitely wouldn't be so many troubling matters. If Miss Mo was together with him, it would definitely be great. It would be very peaceful and there wouldn't be any trouble springing out of nowhere. In comparison, he must be missing Miss Mo more right now. So when he looks at me, he must be wondering why he married a troublemaker like me."
Chen Yucheng burst out laughing and said, "This is what you told him?"
Lin Che looked at Chen Yucheng. "What should I have said otherwise?"
Chen Yucheng shook his head speechlessly. "I think it's normal for him to be angry."
Lin Che said gloomily. "If he's angry, how do you usually calm down?"
Chen Yucheng said, "With regard to this, the only people who usually make him angry are his employees. As far as I'm aware, he should be mollified as long as he fires them."
"…" Fire her?
Wouldn't that mean a divorce?
"But I reckon we shouldn't be able to get a divorce for the time being." Lin Che continued, "However, this matter does indeed cause him excessive inconvenience. He has to explain to his family members and furthermore, the other party in the scandal is his brother. But I can't think of any other way either. I said that I would explain to them instead that it definitely wouldn't affect him and that I also wouldn't let the Gu family discover that our marriage was contractual. What else can I do about all other matters?"
Chen Yucheng looked at her helplessly. "You said this to him earlier?"
"Yes, yes, I was also this sincere when I told him earlier."
Chen Yucheng looked at her with the expression of someone shouldering an arduous task. "I think that he was already being pretty good to you by not strangling you to death."
How could it be that serious?
Chen Yucheng said, "Madam Gu, you can continue staying here and thinking of alternative methods. I'll go over and take a look at how your husband is doing."
"Oh…" Lin Che watched blankly as he went in.
After God knows how long, Lin Che had already woken up from a nap, but Gu Jingze had still not returned for sleep.
Slightly worried, Lin Che got up and wriggled herself into the wheelchair. She came before the study room once again.
She knocked on the door and said, "Gu Jingze, are you inside?"
Gu Jingze made no sound.
Lin Che thought gloomily for a bit. She raised her leg and looked at it. An idea came to her mind. "Gu Jingze… my… my leg hurts. Where's the doctor?"
In a moment, the door opened noisily.
Gu Jingze's eyes were narrowed and his brow was slightly hidden. His eyes were as cold as ice which made him look very sinister.
But when he looked at Lin Che, he assessed her for a bit before asking, "Your leg hurts?"
When Lin Che saw him, she quickly held onto her thigh. "Yes, it suddenly hurts badly. I don't know what to do either."
Gu Jingze swiftly squatted down. He looked at her. She was dressed in shorts with bandages covering the wound on her thigh. It looked like there was nothing wrong.
He instantly reached out a hand and pressed her thigh. "Does it hurt here?"
"Yes, yes, it hurts so badly."
Gu Jingze raised his head. He seemed to sense that something was wrong. He narrowed his eyes and said, "It really hurts?"
"Of course, could it be that you don't believe me?" Lin Che quickly put her acting skills to use. She furrowed her brow and bit her lip. "Oh no, it really hurts to death."
Of course, Gu Jingze could tell that she was exaggerating and acting.
But as he looked at the expanse of the wound, he actually felt that at any rate, it was better to go to the hospital for a checkup. If it was really hurting…
In his heart, he was not willing to let himself take that risk.
Thus, he immediately stood up and said, "Wait here. I'll make some arrangements. We'll go to the hospital."
"Ah?" Upon hearing this, Lin Che knew that she had put on too much of an act. Just when she wanted to stop him, Gu Jingze had already gone in and picked up his cell phone. He quickly dialed a number and gave some instructions that Lin Che could not hear. Thereafter, he came out and said directly, "Let's go. We'll go out and wait."
He pushed Lin Che towards the exit in her wheelchair and very quickly, they arrived outside. Lin Che felt a strong wind blowing and looking up, she saw a helicopter actually landing from the sky. Brandishing its humongous propeller, it landed slowly in this huge courtyard.
Seeing that she felt cold, Gu Jingze reached out his hand to remove his clothes and placed it over her body. Then, he carried her up from the wheelchair in one swift motion.
