225 A Lifetime Actually Sounded Nice
The scarf went around him a few times before Lin Che let go. When she looked up, she saw that the wrapped up Gu Jingze looked even colder. He became even more charismatic.
Gu Jingze's handsomeness was definitely not covered. His perfectly aristocratic aura made the scarf no worse than any branded ones.
It's a saying that people relied on clothes, but clothes also relied on people.
Lin Che thought, A man like Gu Jingze probably could wear something casual and still looked like he belonged in Paris Fashion Week.
The person beside them noticed and looked over at them.
With both hands tidying the scarf, she looked at him with bright eyes and said, "You look really nice."
Gu Jingze heard this and his previously uncooperative gaze fell instantly. He looked at Lin Che and smiled as he took the scarf off. He wrapped the long scarf around both of them.
And it also pulled the two of them closer.
Lin Che's face almost touched his chin. She looked up at him with that sweet, beautiful and amazing gaze. People couldn't help but look over.
One by one, passersby looked at that picturesque scene of both of them. They sighed in wonder at this couple. What a perfect match. How enviable.
Someone at the side said, "The scarf looks very nice and it doesn't look like a product of a roadside stall at all. Let's buy one."
"Come on, you can make Chanel look like a roadside stall product. Why don't you see how others look? If you buy the clothes he wears, that will be a whole different look."
"Get lost. I think it looks rather nice. Hmph."
The little seller couldn't resist taking a picture of the couple. The snap sound alerted Gu Jingze who turned around to look at the little girl. He asked, "What are you doing?"
The little girl shivered in fear from his cold gaze, "I thought the two of you looked really good, so I wanted to snap a picture to attract business."
Lin Che heard this and looked at the little girl, "It's such a cold day. Why are you out here selling scarves?"
She didn't look that old; she was probably still a student.
The little girl laughed sourly, "I was accepted into university but I can't attend. My family is too poor so I have no choice but to come out to work this year. Once I earn enough for my tuition fees and living expenses, I'll sit for the entrance exam again next year. Thus, I work during the day and sell things every night as an extra income."
Lin Che looked at the little girl and her heart was moved. She thought of her own self when she was at her wits' end.
Lin Che understood that feeling of hopelessness.
But no matter how hopeless it was, she had to give herself hope. That was how she survived too.
Lin Che looked up at Gu Jingze and said, "I think a girl who is so independent like this is very good. Why don't I buy everything?"
Gu Jingze looked at her and nodded.
Lin Che said to the little girl, "If you're interested, you can work at my place. This is my contact information. Please take it. If you decide to work in my place, you can call me. I can guarantee you that this job will let you earn a lot more than what you can now. But it is also tough and I can't guarantee that it'll be interesting for you. In any case, you can come to try it out."
"Ah, thank you so much! I will consider it," she looked at Gu Jingze and blushed a little. "Sister, your boyfriend is really handsome. You're so kind too. You two will definitely be blissful."
Lin Che smiled at her while Gu Jingze looked at the girl and tugged Lin Che's hand.
She turned around to wrap the scarf around Gu Jingze. Standing on her toes and looking at his face, he looked so perfect. No wonder the little girl blushed when she saw him.
Lin Che and Gu Jingze continued walking, Unknowingly, snowflakes started falling from the sky. Gu Jingze frowned and stretched out his hand to catch a snowflake. That calm and quiet demeanor was as if everything was carefully calculated and nothing could stop him.
In the past, Lin Che didn't think she would like this type of man. She liked those boy-next-door, handsome boys just like Qin Qing.
But gradually, she began to be enchanted by his beauty. Holding his hand, she felt her heart palpitate more excitedly than when they kissed or did something else.
What was wrong with her?
When she saw him look back, she quickly lowered her head.
Was she really falling for him?
Or was she just getting used to his protection and relying on him?
But how could she dare to fall for such a perfect, strong man?
She escaped his gaze but in the next moment of carelessness, she stepped on the curb and her heel broke.
"Oh no, this can't be happening. How can such an expensive shoe break so easily?" Lin Che exclaimed uncontrollably. Thankfully, Gu Jingze was beside her and immediately held her.
"What happened? You're so careless," Gu Jingze looked at the high heel that her heart was still aching over and immediately tossed it aside.
"Hey, what are you doing…" Lin Che exclaimed.
Gu Jingze said, "You don't need this anymore. I'll buy you a car tomorrow."
"…" Lin Che yelled speechlessly, "The company let me borrow that for the meeting today!"
Without waiting for her to pick up the shoe, Gu Jingze pulled her onto his back, "Don't move. I'll carry you."
Lin Che was on his back and she halted. Hugging his broad back, she felt a quiet flow of gratefulness.
When she was young, she always envied others who could ride on their fathers' necks and get carried around like a treasure.
But she didn't even experience that fatherly love for one day.
She leaned on him and rested her face on his back.
Gu Jingze paused slightly as he felt her pressing on him. That tight feeling made his heart feel something different.
Smiling, this kind of feeling was calming. It also made him feel very comfortable.
Lin Che sprawled on him and said, "I think you should put me down. I'm fine."
"You sprained your leg. Didn't you see that your ankle is all red? I'm taking you to the hospital."
"It's not that serious."
"If you wait for it to become really serious, it'll be too late to go to the hospital. I don't want to serve a broken-legged old hag for the rest of my life."
"Ha, seriously. Didn't we swear the marriage oath? In sickness and in health, you'll never abandon me. What's wrong with carrying me for a lifetime?"
The image of them in white hair holding each other inadvertently flashed across Gu Jingze's mind.
That actually looked very heartwarming.
To be with her for a lifetime…
That didn't sound too hard to accept.
He only thought that that kind of life would definitely be interesting.
