One Child Two Treasures: The Billionaire Chief’s Good Wife - Chapter 4640
Chapter 4640 Never Too Late to Love (47)
Aifei raised her eyebrows disapprovingly. “What? Why are you staring at me like that?”
Bai Sheng smiled and said casually, “You’ve really put in a lot of effort to prove that I’m not doing well.”
Aifei’s expression froze. She snorted coldly and did not say anything else. Lowering her head, she continued playing on her phone.
After work, Bai Sheng checked out of the office dejectedly. Gu Chengze was waiting for her at the building entrance as usual. Bai Sheng walked to the front passenger seat. Gu Chengze looked at her with a smile. However, when he saw that her expression did not look too good, his expression turned serious.
“What’s the matter?”
The look of disappointment on Bai Sheng’s face made his heart ache.
“Nothing.” Bai Sheng felt so heartbroken that she gave him a hug. She did not know if she was feeling sorry for him or herself. Her heart ached for him. He had clearly been working hard to be a good husband and had taken such good care of her. But now, for no reason, he had been slandered by her colleagues.
Her heart ached for herself. She had worked so hard, but in the end, she could not get a good word from others.
She was like a star in the design department. For any given job, the draft she designed would always be the most important. However, it seemed that many people could not tolerate her. How unfair.
Gu Chengze noticed something amiss from her expression, but he was not in a hurry to ask. Instead, he said, “Let’s get in the car first, okay?”
“Uh huh…” Bai Sheng got into the car.
On the way home, she did not speak, and Gu Chengze was not in a hurry to speak. When they arrived home, he held her hand and led her into the room and sat her on his lap.
“What’s the matter? Something on your mind?”
Bai Sheng smiled bitterly. “No…”
“There obviously is.” Gu Chengze’s heart ached for her. “If you have something on your mind, why don’t you tell me? Perhaps I can help you resolve it?”
“It’s no big deal.”
“A conflict with a colleague?” Gu Chengze immediately guessed it, especially when he saw the flicker in her eyes. He became even more certain.
Other than that, he could not think of any other possibilities.
She went to work happily, but had such an expression returning from work. She must have suffered some grievance in the company?
His tone was too gentle, so much so that Bai Sheng could feel how he doted on her. Her eyes reddened with grievance.
She felt wronged on his behalf…
He was such a good man…
Why should he be criticized because of her?
“I’m sorry…” Her inexplicable apology flustered him.
“What’s wrong, exactly?”
“I had a run-in with a female colleague today.” She did not want to hide it from him, so she confessed, “She said that you were lying to me when you said you wanted to buy a house in Chunjiang Tianxi. She claimed it was impossible to buy a house there with a 50 per cent discount. She said that our marriage is a scam. In a fit of anger, I slapped her. I couldn’t stand her saying that about you…”
Bai Sheng raised her head and said, “Regardless of whether you are lying to me or not, it is not her place to point fingers and gossip. She then started to mess with me…”
The man heaved a sigh of relief. So that was the issue? He thought it was something big. However, this silly girl actually fought with someone else to protect him. He was greatly amused!
“Impressive, I say, Sheng’er. You look like a little white rabbit, but I didn’t expect that when you scratch when you get angry.”
Bai Sheng scrunched up her face. “You find it funny? She said that she will be waiting for us at the Chunjiang Tianxi sales office on Friday.”
She felt so embarrassed! If Gu Chengze went to the sales office and Aifei caused trouble in front of him, she would feel even more guilty!
