223 I“m Sorry I Can“t Be A Better Wife
Gu Jingze said, "There's no need to be so polite with me."
Lin Che replied, "Of course. With me as your wife, you probably have to tolerate a lot. If someone else was your wife, you wouldn't have to give in so much."
That 'someone' she was referring to was naturally Mo Huiling.
Lin Che thought that she did have a lot of things going on. Her work and life were ridden with trouble.
Maybe when Mo Huiling was with him for over a decade, there wasn't too much trouble.
Gu Jingze looked at Lin Che and his eyes moved. He looked far into the distance while deep in thought and said, "Now that you mention it, you do have a lot of problems."
Lin Che's heart sank as she looked at Gu Jingze.
Gu Jingze laughed, "But since I married you, I have to accept it."
Lin Che glared hard at him.
"You really don't know how to make a girl happy. How can you be so honest at a time like this? Now that you made me think, you're lucky you married me. If it was another woman, she definitely would be angered to death by you. At least we had an agreement beforehand, so I can get along with you peacefully. If it was someone else, nobody can endure a blockhead like you. Hmph."
Gu Jingze said, "Since you asked me, of course, I had to answer you seriously. What should I be saying otherwise?"
"Of course, it is according to what I meant. Girls need to be coddled, do you understand? That's why I said that marrying you is also my suffering. At least other married couples have a honeymoon period but I don't have anything at all. And I still need to tolerate your bad temper. Tell me, am I suffering?"
"Yes, you're suffering. A good girl like you deserves a better marriage," Gu Jingze thought that it was indeed tough on her to marry him. There was no ceremony, no honeymoon stage, and no honeymoon vacation.
A good girl her age should have a lovely relationship and the sweetness that comes from a marriage out of love. However, she didn't have any of those.
Lin Che looked at him in surprise, "Ah, you know how to talk nicely now?"
Gu Jingze replied, "Yes, I'm learning as I go."
"…" She just knew his mouth wouldn't kick its bad habit.
But as Lin Che gazed at Gu Jingze, she felt that she actually didn't deserve him.
Being able to get to know him and get along with him like this probably used up all the luck in her life.
She had no status. She was nobody and she always got into trouble. She was not gentle or virtuous enough. He deserved a better woman, but she was selfish and liked being carefree. She would never change to become a better woman for him.
Lin Che glared at him and then looked up at him, "So can I really go for the audition?"
"Of course you can. Whatever I said just now were casual words. I won't interfere in your career."
Lin Che laughed, "I still have to thank you. You actually have the right to interfere. We agreed on this. I will play the role of Mrs. Gu well. If I'm not good to you, you must tell me. I don't know a lot after all."
"Silly, this doesn't really affect me. Otherwise, I wouldn't have done it for so many years," Gu Jingze said. "If you can't be carefree and do the things you want to do as my wife, then I failed as a husband."
"But Miss Mo probably never had this much trouble… I just thought… that maybe I'm being too selfish," Lin Che bit her lips and looked down at her fingers. She felt guilty.
Gu Jingze took a deep breath and looked at her, "Huiling indeed never was this troublesome."
Lin Che looked up at Gu Jingze, her eyes glistening.
But Gu Jingze continued, "But I know that it's because Huiling never did anything all these years. She was always at home and not working. What trouble could there be? You have your own dreams and career and that's not a bad thing. You shouldn't feel that it's troublesome either. These are matters that deserve encouragement."
Lin Che's eyes softened as she looked at Gu Jingze's gentle gaze. Her heart began to feel guiltier.
She couldn't do anything for him and only caused him trouble.
This wife was really incompetent.
Gu Jingze relaxed, "Alright, don't think so much anymore. If you really think it's that bad, then don't get into so much trouble. Work humbly and don't invite trouble with some indecent man."
"…" Lin Che looked speechlessly at Gu Jingze, "Are you talking about Gu Jingyu?"
Gu Jingze glanced at her.
Lin Che thought meekly, Gu Jingyu was his little brother.
"Although Jingyu is not a bad person, he is very rebellious and he doesn't do things well. When he got into trouble, which was often, Big Brother and I had to help him handle things. You still treat him as some idol. There's nothing good to learn from him. Just film the movie and don't mix with him when you have nothing to do," Gu Jingze said.
Lin Che pouted, "I didn't say that I treated him as an idol. I just said that he's a very good person."
"Of course, a person of your intellect wouldn't be able to differentiate between bad and good. Everybody is good in your eyes. It's not the first time you were blinded."
Lin Che shot him a look.
The weather was great and although it was cold, the sky was clear like a huge ink plate decorated with tender pearls.
Lin Che took a deep breath and said, "Ah, the weather is so good. Let's take a walk before going back."
Gu Jingze saw that her mood instantly lifted. He mentally shook his head and scolded her for being so thoughtless. But he still looked up and nodded in agreement.
Lin Che ran around like a little bird. She even wore a down jacket but because she was skinny, she didn't look bloated at all with the extra layer. In fact, she looked adorable as her slender legs moved about below the down jacket. She looked like the little red bird from 'Angry Birds'.
Gu Jingze's lips curled up in a smile and he followed after Lin Che.
Lin Che said, "I don't have any great ambitions but I do want to become the number one Sister one day. Hmph. I'll let those people who want me dead to watch me. I'll let them watch me real good!"
Clenching her first, she was still angry thinking about how she got outcasted just now.
Her own shortcomings implicated the rest of her team until they had no rights to speak.
Thus, she really had to fight on and get to the highest point so that she could stop the people beside her from suffering.
She also hoped for the day when Yu Minmin no longer had to see other peoples' faces because of her. Then, they wouldn't be ridiculed like they were today.
Gu Jingze saw her fighting posture and looked plainly at her, "Number one Sister?"
"That's right. Do you think I can do it?!" Lin Che turned back and asked.
Gu Jingze smiled and looked at her, "Of course you can."
Lin Che moved the corners of her lips, "Right, I definitely can. Sooner or later, I'll take over the top of the world and let these despising haters watch me. Hmph, they dare to bully me? Wait until I'm the number one Sister. I'll let my assistant handle you."
"…" Watching Lin Che's villainous behavior, Gu Jingze felt kind of speechless.
But he also found it very interesting.
Especially that rich expression on her face. It really moved people.
Many people thought that men wouldn't like such a utilitarian woman like that. He thought so too. However, this petite woman consciously had utilitarian expression written all over her face. Yet, it wasn't detestable at all.
