Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 656
Chapter 656: Gu Zheng Is So Adorable
The manager was stunned for a few seconds and replied in fear, “President Gu, are you sure? They only serve customers. How can you learn from them?”
Gu Zheng frowned. Everyone thought that he had realized that something was wrong. Unexpectedly, he shouted impatiently, “What the hell are you talking about?! Just do as I tell you to!”
He just wanted to curry favor with Qiao Xi. Why was it so difficult?
Qiao Xi remained silent. As expected, there was another personality in Gu Zheng’s body. He was ignorant of the world and was domineering and charming. At this moment, everyone would probably think that the couple had some special fetishes.
She walked in front of Gu Zheng and held his hand tightly. “Stop fooling around, Gu Zheng. Let them go.”
Gu Zheng lowered his eyes and looked at her hand, then gestured for everyone to leave. He was slightly unhappy. He thought that he was establishing his authority for Qiao Xi and even disregarding his reputation to learn how to serve women, but she did not appreciate it at all.
‘Gu Zheng looks so cute when he’s angry!’
Gu Zheng heard Qiao Xi’s thoughts and looked at her with a surprised expression. She actually said that he was cute?
‘His red face is really too cute. He’s like a child.’
At this moment, the displeasure in Gu Zheng’s heart had already vanished. A trace of redness dyed his cheeks and spread to the back of his ears. His breathing also became hurried.
When he woke up in this body, the gazes of everyone in his memory were filled with fear, disgust, and pity. Only Qiao Xi’s eyes were filled with affection. Even though this emotion was very unfamiliar to him, it inexplicably shook his heart.
Gu Zheng lowered his eyes and said in a hoarse voice, “Let’s go home.”
The instant he lowered his head, he happened to see the pair of thin stiletto heels Qiao Xi was wearing. Without a word, he took off his coat and wrapped it around her body. He picked her up by the waist and threw her into the car.
Song Shiyu and Song Shijing looked at each other and retreated a few steps. They smiled as Gu Zheng sat in the driver’s seat.
Qiao Xi struggled out of the oversized coat. She was just about to open the door and run to the front passenger seat when she heard Gu Zheng say in a low voice, “Sit properly. The backseat is safer. Moreover, I’ll be distracted if you sit beside me.”
Qiao Xi’s heart trembled. She remembered that Gu Zheng had also said this before. Even though he had already changed into a different person and lost all his emotions, he still subconsciously protected her. This sort of desire to protect her seemed to have seeped into his bones.
Previously, Gu Zheng would still allow her to sit in the front passenger seat. The two of them would chat along the way as they went back to Longwan Residential. However, after that car accident, Gu Zheng refused to let her sit in the front passenger seat no matter what.
Perhaps that drug did not completely make one lose their emotions. It only sealed the deepest emotions in one’s heart. Only then would those terrifying memories not hurt the one affected.
The car stopped at Longwan Residential. Qiao Xi went upstairs and entered the bathroom of the master bedroom. Suddenly, she heard the door open. She casually wrapped a towel around herself and ran out of the bathroom. She said sweetly, “Ah Zheng~”
Gu Zheng suddenly trembled as if a fire was burning in his body.
20 minutes ago, he was still sitting in the study in a daze. He did not understand why he had started to care about Qiao Xi. He cared about her mood and every move. He even ignored his image to please her.
She was clearly the stupid woman that man had married. He only helped her because she was Mrs. Gu and he did not want her to be too embarrassed. However, this woman had already completely swayed his heart.
Gu Zheng came back to his senses. The woman in front of him was wrapped in a towel, which revealed her exquisite collarbone, fair neck, and long legs. Her cheeks were red from the heat, while her eyes were burning as they landed on him.
The man’s Adam’s apple moved, and he felt his body heat up. It was as if a voice was clamoring to break out of the cage. He immediately looked away. His voice was hoarse with desire. “Put your clothes on.”
Qiao Xi blinked. “Have you seen anyone wear clothes to shower? Gu Zheng, why aren’t my clothes in the master bedroom? I remember that I clearly left them here before this.”
Qiao Xi, who had just thrown her clothes away, was looking at the blushing man with an innocent expression. She exhaled and asked gently, “Did you throw away my clothes?”
Hearing her charming voice, Gu Zheng’s body stiffened. After he woke up, he did see some women’s clothes in the master bedroom. They were an eyesore to him, so he put them aside. However, in order to avoid trouble, he did not throw them away.
He was extremely puzzled in his heart as well. The two of them clearly did not have a good relationship, so why would Qiao Xi shower in his bedroom?
