222 He Couldn“t Bear For Her To Be Compromised
They were finally outside and the few bosses politely retreated.
Gu Jingyu wanted to send her home.
Lin Che looked speechlessly at Gu Jingyu, "Why did you come to my company?"
"I missed you so I came to see you."
"Forget it…" Lin Che glared speechlessly at him.
Gu Jingyu laughed and said, "Why? Do you not believe me? I really missed you."
"…" Lin Che said, "Fine fine fine. I'm really flattered."
Gu Jingyu asked, "Can't you be more patronizing?"
"It is what it is…"
Gu Jingyu looked at her, then shook his head, "Just now inside, were you being outcasted?"
He could tell.
Lin Che thought that he was a veteran too, so he definitely understood. Thus, she only shrugged her shoulders and said, "It doesn't matter. I don't actually care."
"If you want to compare to them, you can't beat them. You cannot win by playing dirty tricks with them too. It's better that you keep your distance from them. It's not easy for them to get to where they are over a few years. You're still on your way up and not at the level of a big shot yet. You just managed to get your own coverage and fans. It's also understandable for them to see you now. They'll take any chance to stomp on you and throw you off. Since your foundation is not steady yet, climbing back up may be much more difficult."
Lin Che never thought about all these scary things, "No way. How can they be so evil?"
"What else do you think? They haven't thrown off just one or two small artists like that. As for you, if I wasn't looking, you would be the easiest target to knock down."
Lin Che heard this and felt grateful towards him. Thus, she said in all seriousness, "Thank you, Senior Jingyu."
"You don't have to say these kinds of sour words; it's not like I'm gonna tease you. I especially came today to look for you. I'm going to be filming a huge movie and wanted you to come to try for it. What do you say?"
"Huge movie?" Lin Che's eyes lit up.
"It's a fantasy movie and we haven't found a female lead. I think your aura is very suitable, so I recommended you to them. If you're willing, you can come and try out."
"Really? Of course I'm willing!"
After she said that, she had some doubts again, "But I've never acted in a movie before. Aren't you afraid that I'll mess up?"
"That's why you have to audition first. I'm still very serious when it comes to working."
"Oh, right. I need to audition."
"But I believe that you'll pass," he smiled and said.
Lin Che looked gratefully at him, "Thank you, Gu Jingyu. Thank you for believing in me."
"Nevermind. I trust my eyesight," Gu Jingyu replied.
Lin Che speechlessly thought, Seriously, he was exactly like his brother. They were both bad at praising people.
When Gu Jingyu bade farewell to her, Gu Jingze arrived moments later.
Lin Che was very surprised. She watched Gu Jingze's car stylishly stop at the roadside. His men got out and respectfully asked her to get in, saying that Gu Jingze was inside.
Just from finding out that she was going to be in a movie soon, she got extremely happy. She jumped in front of Gu Jingze, "Gu Jingze, how come you're here?"
Gu Jingze said, "I just ended work so I wanted to pick you up. The one that just left… was that Jingyu?"
"Ah, you saw? That's right."
"I bought him that car. Of course I recognize it," Gu Jingze then frowned at Lin Che. "What was he doing here?"
Lin Che immediately said with excitement, "Gu Jingyu invited me to film a big movie. He hoped that I'll go audition for the female lead."
Lin Che thought about how she was outcasted inside and bullied by the company's Big Sister. Mulling over it, she concluded that she still wasn't qualified enough.
She wanted to work even harder so that she could move forward.
Gu Jingze saw that she was so happy and he asked, "You're so happy over a movie?"
Lin Che replied, "But of course. Gu Jingyu's movie will definitely be great. You're not in the circle, so you definitely don't know Gu Jingyu's value. With Gu Jingyu's name on it, it's already predicted to be a sell-out. Gu Jingyu is in an entire league of his own. He's the guarantee for a box office and virality. I've only acted in TV dramas so movie directors won't choose people like me. We may be famous but the movies have a set of different criteria."
Gu Jingze's brows slowly furrowed.
Hearing her so full of praise for Gu Jingyu, his heart began to feel uncomfortable.
"It's just a movie. The world still relies on the economy for support," he only felt regret after saying those words.
What was wrong with him? Why were his words so sour?
But a bright, little voice in his heart told him that he didn't like her worshipping others.
He never had such a possessive desire for a woman but for Lin Che, he already wanted to monopolize all her thoughts.
Worshipping someone else was unacceptable.
He thought about how she would worship him in the same way and felt satisfied. However, the way she worshipped was actually not just for him. He knew this was wrong, unethical and unreasonable but he just couldn't control his thinking.
Gu Jingze blurted out, "Since you're already married to me, isn't it a bad idea to film a movie with Jingyu?"
"Ah?" Lin Che didn't expect Gu Jingze to suddenly become so unhappy that his face fell. "It's just a movie. No big deal right?"
"What do you mean no big deal? Jingyu and I are brothers. You're lacking principles by doing this. You're married to me, yet you're acting with him as lovers. How am I going to face the world?"
Lin Che was taken aback. In one moment, she was thinking about how the film was going to be great. Gu Jingyu's team was also very capable and she couldn't bear to give this opportunity up. In the next moment, she was getting lectured by him and she felt uncomfortable.
He was actually right.
This wasn't such a good idea.
Her eyes reddened and although she couldn't bear to, she still said, "Nevermind then. I won't participate in it…"
Gu Jingze froze as he saw Lin Che's eyes were all red. Seeing her compromise herself, it was all the more unbearable for him.
It was as if all that anger suddenly became worthless in front of her suffering.
"I'm sorry. I didn't control my emotions just now. If you want to shoot, go ahead. I was merely speaking."
He caressed her cheek gently and was extremely unwilling to see any disappointment on her face.
Especially not when he was the reason for her disappointment.
Lin Che looked up at Gu Jingze, "Really? But… Thinking about it, it really doesn't seem right."
"It's alright as long as there are no intimate scenes."
"That can be requested with the director. Of course, that is only if I pass the audition."
"That is a given," Gu Jingze replied.
Lin Che's heart warmed up, "Thank you, Gu Jingze."
