54 Come Over and Massage Me
Lin Che looked at Gu Jingyu, "How is Mr. President like? Is he good or bad?"
Gu Jingming turned out to be his brother. Lin Che thought he should know.
Gu Jingyu pondered for a while. He smiled and said, "Well, if you think about it, if he managed to take the position of the president, how simple can he be? That guy's heart is as cold as his appearance. He's a big bad wolf who will do anything for power!"
"Huh?" Lin Che was shocked to the bone. The President seemed rather nice on television.
Gu Jingyu looked at her and laughed loudly. This Lin Che could be so silly sometimes.
"Okay, I was pulling your leg. He's actually pretty normal. He's just more of a loner. Hm, he's a little weird, a little difficult to handle, a little hard to get along with, a little…"
"All of you in the Gu family are the same kind…"
Was he not like Gu Jingze?
"Hey, what do you mean by all of us? Am I hard to get along with?"
"Oh, no no…" Lin Che almost slipped her tongue as she laughed dryly.
Lin Che tried to call Yu Minmin again but no one picked up. When she called again, the phone had been turned off.
Lin Che's heart panicked a little. However, she had no other choice. She wanted to get up and take a look but realized that the entrance had been locked shut. She could only think about what to do as she went back. Yu Minmin was an adult anyway. She would not get lost.
When she got home, she quickly looked for Gu Jingze. Although she had been avoiding him recently, she had no choice but to get his help this time.
"Gu Jingze, how is your relationship with Mr. President?" Lin Che asked urgently the moment she entered.
Gu Jingze looked at Lin Che, "We are brothers. What do you think?"
Lin Che continued hastily, "My manager has gone missing since lunch. I can't find her anywhere. I would like to ask for your help to search around and maybe ask Mr. President if she had entered there. The security is tight up there so I couldn't go. I'm afraid that she might have been mistaken for a bad person and his security guards might have apprehended her."
So that was the issue.
Gu Jingze had been busy with work recently. However, looking at Lin Che made him remember that he had not seen her for a few days.
Whenever he was home, she was either still out or staying overnight at the set. The next day, she would leave as early as possible. Now that he thought about it, she seemed to be even busier than himself.
Gu Jingze asked, "Have you been very busy lately?"
Lin Che was taken aback. Looking at his faint expression and discerning gaze, he seemed suspicious. She dared not to tell him that she was deliberately avoiding him.
Lin Che rubbed her ear, "Oh, yes. I have been busy filming and preparing for the promotion. Why?"
Gu Jingze put his hands on the table as he hoisted himself up and looked at Lin Che, "Are you asking for my help?"
Lin Che nodded, "Yes."
"If I help you, how are you going to thank me?"
Lin Che snorted and said, "How would I know? You are rich. You can get anything and everything you want. There's nothing I can give you."
Gu Jingze smiled and gestured for her to come over.
Lin Che bowed her head and went over in a few quick steps.
Gu Jingze asked, "Do you know how to massage?"
Gu Jingze frowned, "You don't know how to do anything. What kind of wife are you?"
"Must I know how to perform so many tasks to be a wife…" Lin Che said quietly.
Gu Jingze replied, "Of course. What's the point of having a wife?"
"To spend your money. You earn too much. If I don't use your money, how will you be able to finish spending it all?" Lin Che answered shamelessly.
Gu Jingze looked at her, "I knew you'd come up with such a warped answer. Come, massage my shoulder for a bit. Ask me nicely and I might just consider your request."
Lin Che looked at his proud expression and said hatefully, "What a wicked capitalist you are. Making use of a poor citizen like me."
Gu Jingze said, "Of course! It's justified. I have to call up Gu Jingming who is the president. You think any normal person would be able to do that?"
He made it sound like it was such a big deal. Was he not just his brother?
Lin Che snorted in contempt, but seeing Gu Jingze tilt his head expectingly and waiting for her service, she could only force herself to walk behind him.
Her hands began to press his shoulders.
His shoulders were broad. Tracing the fabric, she found his muscles and used her strength to press them.
Unknowingly, he took off his shirt to reveal his fully ripped body. His triangular figure could really make a person's nose bleed.
Her heart grew hot. Looking at the back of his head, her mind began to wander.
She wondered what shampoo he used. His thick, black hair was so clean and smelled so good.
Honestly, an elegant man looked good at any angle.
The back of his head looked so good.
Gu Jingze said, "Go on, why did you stop?"
Lin Che snapped out of it. To think she actually got entranced by the back of his head.
She continued pressing and said, "Your shoulders are so tense. Are you usually so busy with work?"
Gu Jingze replied, "Of course. As a husband, I have to carry the household on my shoulders. Wouldn't they be tense?"
Lin Che burst with laughter.
Upon hearing her laugh, Gu Jingze laughed too.
Her small hands had no strength at all. When she pressed, he could feel her trying her best, but he did not feel relaxed at all. In fact, he felt his shoulders tense up even more.
Because her hands were too weak, it made him not want to be pressed.
However, he did not want her to let go. Feeling the gentle squeeze, he smiled and said, "Okay, since you were so sincere, hand me the phone."
Seeing Gu Jingze finally give in, Lin Che hurriedly handed the phone to him.
Gu Jingze made the call, but it did not get through.
Gu Jingze said, "Someone is busy."
Lin Che's petite face fell.
Seeing her worried expression, he did not want to agitate her, "Let me try contacting his secretary."
"Ah, really? You're too nice, Gu Jingze," Lin Che's face immediately blossomed.
Gu Jingze smiled at her, picked up his phone, and tried again.
This time, it went through.
"I couldn't get through to Mr. President. Is he busy?"
On the other end of the line, someone said quietly, "Second Young Master, Mr. President is already asleep."
"Oh, okay then. Can you help me check if you guys had apprehended a drunk woman today?"
"Second Young Master, we have not."
"Alright, send my regards to Mr. President."
"Yes, Second Young Master. I will let him know first thing tomorrow. Is there anything else I can do for you, Sir?"
"That will be all."
He put down the phone and turned to Lin Che who was full of anticipation. He told her, "They did not catch anybody. You can relax. Your manager must have gone home herself."
Lin Che heaved a sigh of relief, "That scared me to death. I thought I would be finished if I offended the president."
Gu Jingze laughed, "Since when were you such a scaredy cat? You dared to insult me, yet you're scared of the president?"
