154 That“s Precisely What Being Jealous Is
Lin Che waited a very long time at home. She called Gu Jingze but he did not pick up either. She asked the maids beside her and the security guards outside but all of them said that they did not know where Gu Jingze was.
She angrily held up her phone and sent a few messages to Gu Jingze first. She did not care whether or not Gu Jingze would see them.
"Gu Jingze, I don't know why you got angry. Since you already know that I was only at the hospital because Qin Qing had gotten injured, then do you also already know that he protected me from the object that fell from above? That's the only reason why the person in the hospital now isn't me. So what's wrong with me looking after him for a bit in the hospital? Why must you get angry? Surely, I shouldn't repay his kindness with ingratitude and ignore him? Would doing that be right?"
After she sent the message, there was still no response. Alone on the bed, Lin Che lay on her stomach. She waited for a long time and felt even more strongly that she was literally waiting for someone who would not repent. She felt that rotten.
Forget it. Since he wanted to be angry, then he could just be angry.
Lin Che did not want to bother with him anymore. She fell into a fitful sleep. The next day, she went directly to the filming venue. She did not even want to go home when night came. She wanted to just stay overnight at the filming site.
During the breaks in filming, Lin Che thought of Qin Qing. It was not convenient for her to go over and look after him again. Then, he would overthink. However, it would be better if she called him first and asked about his condition.
After the call went through, Qin Qing's voice sounded very gloomy over the phone.
"Qin Qing, it's me. I'm filming and I'm a little busy so I can't go and visit you."
Qin Qing smiled. "I've already transferred to another hospital. Thank you."
"Oh, is that so? That's good. I was still worried that the facilities in that hospital were not good enough and would interfere with your condition."
"Thanks for your thoughts. Actually, it doesn't matter. All of my injuries are just external injuries."
"Of course it matters. You only got injured because of me."
She did not know currently that Qin Qing still thought that she had asked Gu Jingze to change his ward.
Both of them were each saying what they wanted to but neither spoke very clearly.
Qin Qing smiled as he said, "Don't overthink it. Putting aside the fact that we've known each other for so many years, you're as close to me as a biological sister would be. Even if it was a stranger, how could I just watch a person get hurt? It doesn't matter."
Actually, Qin Qing was a very good person too.
With her phone in her hand, Lin Che paused and remained silent for a long time. Then, she said into the phone, "Thank you, Qin Qing."
"Silly." Qin Qing said, "In the future, you're still my sister."
"Hn. You're still my good friend."
Lin Che put down the phone but she began to feel even more sad.
Time was really a strange thing. It washed away so many feelings and took away so many regrets…
A day had passed but she still had not received any news from Gu Jingze.
Even Yu Minmin noticed that Lin Che's mind was occupied with other things.
As she looked at Lin Che playing with her phone over there, Yu Minmin walked over and said, "Hey, what's wrong with you? You're so out of it today."
"No way… I filmed all my scenes in one take today!"
Yu Minmin said, "I'm not talking about filming. Look at yourself. After filming, you nestled yourself here immediately and your expression has simply not been good. Didn't you realize? Today, no one in the production team has dared to come and bother you at all."
Lin Che blinked as she raised her head. "Really? My expression is that terrible?"
Yu Minmin said, "That's a given."
Lin Che got up and looked at Yu Minmin, "Exactly how terrible is it… is my expression just very rotten?"
"What do you think?!"
"Oh my god." Lin Che said, "How come I didn't sense it at all? But why is everyone afraid of bothering me?"
"Because they're afraid that you'll throw a tantrum."
"No way… I'm so kind and cute."
"That's how you are usually. But today, you look like an old witch," Yu Minmin said bluntly.
Lin Che sighed as she looked at Yu Minmin. "Sister Yu, in your opinion… if a man always gets angry for no reason, what does it mean?"
Yu Minmin said, "Oh. No wonder you're so distracted today. Gu Jingze got angry at you? What happened? How did he get angry?"
"… " Lin Che lowered her head. Only after a long time did she say, "Uhm, it went like this… "
Lin Che briefly summarized what had happened. She did not mention that Qin Qing had unexpectedly and inconceivably confessed to her. In any case, that did not count as a proper confession either. It was possible that it was merely just thinking of possibilities.
Yu Minmin looked at Lin Che with surprise, "You're really great. You've already gotten together with Gu Jingze but you still have a male childhood friend who got injured on your behalf. Are you trying to make every woman envy you to death?"
"Sister Yu, just tell me what do now. If he's injured, he's just injured. I can't leave him be either. But that Gu Jingze is really too petty. He actually ignored me just because I stood him up."
Yu Minmin looked at Lin Che, "You're sure that he's not just jealous?"
"What?" Lin Che looked at Yu Minmin in front of her with an astounded expression.
Yu Minmin slapped the table, "That's enough. You can't even tell? Gu Jingze's not angry because you stood him up. He's angry because you stood him up for the sake of your childhood sweetheart. Are you kidding me? That's precisely what being jealous is."
"… " Really?
Lin Che fidgeted as she looked at Yu Minmin. "That's not possible."
She really did not want to flatter herself.
"Alright. Men need cajoling, especially jealous men. Lower your stance a little and cajole him properly. Everything will be fine then. Go back quickly and stop wasting time here."
All of a sudden, someone came to look for Lin Che outside.
"Sister Che, someone is waiting for you outside the venue," the assistant director ran over as he spoke. From his tone and gaze, it seemed that the person who had come was a little unordinary.
Lin Che looked at Yu Minmin. Upon seeing Yu Minmin nod at her encouragingly, she ran out in a rush.
However, when she arrived outside, she saw that the person standing outside was Chen Yucheng.
"Doctor Chen, why are you here?"
Chen Yucheng looked at Lin Che, "You haven't gone home for more than a day?"
Lin Che pursed her lips, "Yes. It's because I'm afraid of irritating someone if I go back."
Chen Yucheng said, "Hey. I really don't know what exactly Gu Jingze owes you."
Chen Yucheng said, "He must have had a fair amount of enmity with you in his past life. So you came to torment him after reincarnation in this life."
Dumbfounded, Lin Che said, "Exactly who is tormenting who?"
Chen Yucheng said, "Are you still going back to see Gu Jingze one last time?"
"What?" Upon hearing this, Lin Che got shocked.
Chen Yucheng said, "Gu Jingze is about to die."
"You… what are you saying… "
"He's about to be angered to death by you."
Lin Che glared at this Chen Yucheng who spoke in bits and pieces. "Get lost!"
Upon seeing that Lin Che had lost interest, Chen Yucheng quickly said, "Alright. I won't joke with you anymore. But Gu Jingze is really ill."
Lin Che's expression froze as she looked at Chen Yucheng.
