So this was how he planned his strategies. No wonder he had been so quiet the whole day.
Lin Che could not help the wave of admiration she felt. This was precisely what a businessman was. He did everything so secretly but in the end, it turned out that he was actually the mastermind.
Gu Jingyu looked at Lin Che. “My Second Brother voluntarily went to such lengths for you… he even specially approached me. Lin Che, I think that you’re very fortunate.”
“Yes. You don’t need to compare yourself to Mo Huiling at all. She can’t compare to you because my Second Brother is on your side. He cares about you so much and does everything for you. It already shows how important you are to him. So how can Mo Huiling beat that? You don’t have to worry at all…”
Lin Che looked at Gu Jingze from afar.
He was still talking to Gu Jingming. As if he had sensed her gaze, he turned around and looked into Lin Che’s eyes. Then, the corners of his lips turned up slightly.
Lin Che said, “Eh. I’m just fortunate…”
“Nonsense.” Gu Jingyu continued, “Do you think that being fortunate is a bad thing? A person is only fortunate because she has accumulated lots of good luck. You only accumulated so much good luck because you’re a very good person. Not everyone is as lucky as you are because not everyone is ready to receive good fortune. Do you understand?”
Lin Che smiled at Gu Jingyu and nodded vigorously. “I understand, Senior Jingyu.”
She was already very content that everyone treated her so well.
Lin Che smiled at Gu Jingyu. Seeing that Gu Jingze and Gu Jingming were done talking, she bounced her way over.
Gu Jingze walked towards Lin Che with steady steps. Lin Che smiled and walked towards him with a spring in her step. Then, she said, “Gu Jingze.”
She looked up at him. He looked down at her through squinted eyes. He seemed to be a little tipsy.
Lin Che simply looked at him quietly and hooked her arm around his. She felt that she had already thanked him so much that there was no point in doing it again. With her arm around his, she smiled and walked out. While walking, she thought to herself that Gu Jingze was really impressive. It seemed that he already had everything in the palm of his hand. And the crucial thing was that he had obtained all of this so soundlessly.
Lin Che wondered what else exactly Gu Jingze had done to protect her silently unbeknownst to her.
Gu Lanshan watched Gu Jingze and Lin Che walk out together and even smiled at Gu Jingze in greeting.
“Jingze, are you about to leave?”
“Yes. Otherwise, are we going to wait here to see Aunt continue playing different roles and putting up a show?”
“…” Gu Lanshan was taken aback by his words.
Gu Lanshan’s face tightened. “Jingze, is this how you speak to your elders?”
“That’s right. To me, an elder is a person who protects the younger generation. Otherwise, she doesn’t deserve to be called an elder, so… I don’t think I’m wrong in speaking to you like this. After all, in terms of mentality, you’re even more immature and insensible than your juniors.”
Gu Lanshan trembled as she pointed at Gu Jingze.
Ignoring Gu Lanshan, Gu Jingze pulled Lin Che along and walked out immediately.
After bidding Lin Che goodbye, Yu Minmin headed out together with Gu Jingming.
There were still many guests outside. Yu Minmin stayed beside Gu Jingming obediently and did not speak a word. Even when people constantly stared at her as she walked past, Yu Minmin remained silent and headed out directly.
It was only when she got into the car that those persistent gazes disappeared.
Only then did Yu Minmin heave a sigh of relief and say to Gu Jingming, “Were the people here today all relatives?”
“Hn. Most of them are,” Gu Jingming said.
Yu Minmin said, “Alright. I think that they’re all very cautious.”
“It’s because they’re from the branch families, so it’s usually rare for them to be able to come to the old Gu residence.”
“So that’s why.” Yu Minmin continued, “Even Gu Jingyu came today. Ah, I feel like I just witnessed history. Do you think he will really reconcile with the family?”
Gu Jingming nodded. “Since he’s back, it means that they have reconciled. Previously, it was only because he could not put away his pride. Furthermore, for some strange reason, these people thought that Grandfather doesn’t like Jingyu. But in actual fact, Jingyu is Grandfather’s favorite grandchild.”
“Really?” Yu Minmin tilted her head and looked at him.
Gu Jingming said, “He’s an old man after all. All old people take a greater liking to the younger generation. Furthermore, Jingyu was always eccentric and quick-witted. As long as he was around, the atmosphere would be very fun. Thus, even though their relationship broke down subsequently, how could it be as outsiders described? How could they possibly refuse to have any contact with one another until death? Some people even wanted to make an issue of it. They forgot that Jingyu is ultimately a child of the Gu family, Grandfather’s biological grandson. No grandfather would disown his own grandson. They thought wrong.”
“Alright. So you’re saying that everything that happened today was because someone was trying to make an issue of this?”
“That’s right. It’s probably Aunt. She has always been at odds with my mother.”
“Why are they on bad terms?” Yu Minmin asked.
“Because she has to listen to Mother’s instructions since Mother is the mistress of the Gu family.”
“I guess… to be honest, it’s common for a woman to be at odds with her sister-in-law even in a typical family.”
Gu Jingming said, “But… you won’t have any problems with Lin Che in the future, right?”
“No way.” Yu Minmin continued, “Why would we have problems with each other?”
“You’re sisters-in-law. Also… in the future, one of you may end up being the mistress of the family.”
“Ha, forget it.” Yu Minmin said, “We’ll have to handle household affairs. If you were really to let us choose, we would probably discuss amongst ourselves, just like how we work in our studio. We’ll just divide the work. There’s nothing to fight over.”
Hearing this, Gu Jingming looked down and gazed at Yu Minmin for a long time.
It was only after a long time that he said, “It’s best that you think this way because you can’t become the mistress of the family.”
“Jingze will be the head of the family in the future. This is something that nearly the whole family has decided. I’m different from him.”
Yu Minmin thought about it. It was true. He had to be the President, so he couldn’t be the head of the family.
But what were his intentions earlier? Was he trying to suss her out?
Yu Minmin glared at him secretly, thinking to herself that he was truly rotten to the core.
Of course, she did not want to be the mistress of the house.
Gu Jingming leaned in close to her all of a sudden. Yu Minmin frantically said, “You… what are you up to again…”
“I think I saw you glaring at me earlier?”
Yu Minmin hastily said, “No, no. How can that be? I didn’t glare at you…”
Gu Jingming glanced at her. His seemingly neutral gaze was very pressurizing. For a moment, Yu Minmin did not dare to look him straight in the eye and she quickly evaded his gaze. However, she could still sense his overwhelming gaze staring at the back of her head.
After God knows how long, Gu Jingming suddenly pulled her head to him.
They were in the car, she wanted to say. But she did not manage to say it out loud.
Because he had already covered her mouth completely.
