FV: Chapter 100
Lin Luoqing stayed in the crew for another three days before finally finishing.
The crew prepared a finale cake for him. He cut and ate a piece. The other actors took advantage of when he was eating the cake to dig up handfuls of cream and spread it on his face.
Lin Luoqing was so frightened that he quickly fled. They chased and he fled. By the end of it, they all had cream covering their faces.
Everyone looked at each other and laughed. There was the inherent vitality and cheerfulness of young people.
Li Hanhai and Yao Momo didn’t want him to go. Director Zhang also hoped he could stay and continue to help the other actors.
Lin Luoqing was very willing in his heart. The problem was that it was already the end of December and he wanted to go back to celebrate New Year’s Eve with Ji Yuxiao.
If he was single, he was naturally willing to stay on the set. After all, everyone had a good relationship. However, he had Ji Yuxiao and the two children and he missed them. He could only apologize and say that someone was waiting for him to go home.
Everyone thought he was talking about his parents. They didn’t think much of it. They took photos with him, finished the party and sent him away.
They were all from the entertainment industry and understood that it was normal for actors to spend less time with their families. After knowing someone was waiting at home, they were embarrassed to let Lin Luoqing stay due to their own selfishness.
Lin Luoqing waved to them. “See you next time.”
“Yes, see you next time.” Everyone was smiling.
Lin Luoqing got into the business car and went back to the hotel to pack his luggage.
Ji Yuxiao’s call came quickly. He picked it up and heard Ji Yuxiao ask him, “Are you finished filming?”
“Yes.” Lin Luoqing was happy. “I’ll be able to go home tomorrow.”
He asked, “You didn’t tell Xiao Yu and Fei Fei, did you? I’m going to pick them up from school tomorrow and surprise them!”
“No,” Ji Yuxiao answered with a smile. “How dare I not listen to your words? You are so sought after now.”
Lin Luoqing smiled. He actually liked it when Ji Yuxiao was jealous. It made him feel as if Ji Yuxiao really cared about him and he was really happy.
“Then don’t come and pick me up tomorrow,” he stated. “I’ll go back by myself. Don’t come over. It is too much trouble for you.”
Ji Yuxiao, who was preparing to pick him up tomorrow, “……”
“Do you want to think again?”
“Didn’t you say you dare not listen to my words? Why do you want me to think about it again?” Lin Luoqing cleaned up this person with confidence.
Wu Xinyuan, who was sitting beside him, “…..”
Oh my god, was this something he could listen to? It turned out that President Ji was strictly controlled by his wife!
Wu Xinyuan sat silently and stared out the window. He didn’t dare to listen out of fear he might know too much.
Ji Yuxiao was shocked by his words and didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “Fine, I’ll wait for you at home. This is okay, right?”
“Yes,” Lin Luoqing replied. “I’ll be back soon, don’t worry.”
He hung up the phone with joy in his heart. Then he headed back to his hotel room.
Xiao Wang and Wu Xinyuan helped Lin Luoqing pack his luggage before returning to their own rooms.
Lin Luoqing said goodnight to Ji Yuxiao and went to bed. He wished that he could return to his and Ji Yuxiao’s home as soon as he opened his eyes.
“Home,” Lin Luoqing suddenly sighed. He actually had a home. He had only been in this world for a few months but he already had a home. It was really magical.
He couldn’t help thinking about the world he used to live in, where he didn’t have a home of his own.
‘What matters most isn’t where you live, but the people around you,’ Lin Luoqing thought.
He closed his eyes and fell asleep.
Early the next morning, Lin Luoqing was woken by his alarm clock. He sent a message to Wu Xinyuan and Xiao Wang, washed up and ate breakfast. Then they rushed back together.
Ji Yuxiao sat in the study and checked the time on his phone occasionally. Finally, he pushed the wheelchair to the window to look down.
Lin Luoqing was coming back but he didn’t know when Lin Luoqing would be home.
Was it day or not, with the moon or with no moon?
He was restless and couldn’t bear to read the documents. He simply took out a book to read it.
It wasn’t until 3 o’clock that Ji Yuxiao saw a car stop at the door and someone get down from the car. It was Lin Luoqing.
His heart completely settled. It was as if the last petal fell to the ground, peaceful and gentle.
—He was finally back.
Ji Yuxiao put down the book with a smile. He sat back at the table and pretended to be working seriously.
Lin Luoqing, Xiao Wang and Wu Xinyuan carried the suitcases into the house together.
Wu Xinyuan guessed that it was a reunion after so long and Ji Yuxiao probably didn’t want to see anyone other than his wife. Therefore, Wu Xinyuan wisely took away Xiao Wang.
Aunt Zhang helped him carry the luggage and said with a smile, “Mr Lin, you are back. Mr Ji is in the study. Go to him and I’ll help you put away the suitcase.”
“Thank you.” Lin Luoqing smiled.
Aunt Zhang smiled back at him. “You’re welcome.”
The two of them got into the elevator together. After reaching the study, Lin Luoqing knocked on the door.
“Come in.” Ji Yuxiao’s voice was heard.
Lin Luoqing stuck his head in and saw Ji Yuxiao sitting behind the desk. An involuntary smile appeared on his face.
Ji Yuxiao was already well disguised at this time and could calmly say to him, “You’re back.”
Lin Luoqing nodded. He walked in and approached the desk. “I’m back.”
His words were gentle and affectionate, like a dream that people didn’t dare to disturb.
Ji Yuxiao’s pretense of calmness was completely disturbed by this sentence. In the end, he couldn’t be as calm as he imagined.
“Come here,” he told Lin Luoqing.
Lin Luoqing went around the table and walked in front of Ji Yuxiao. Then he fell into Ji Yuxiao’s arms and was hugged by this man. The next second, a kiss fell.
How could Ji Yuxiao be calm?
Ever since knowing that Lin Luoqing was coming back today, he had been looking forward to it since last night.
He was restless and the dust only settled when seeing Lin Luoqing.
“Welcome home.” Ji Yuxiao pressed their foreheads together and lightly touched his lips.
“What else?” Lin Luoqing asked him.
“I missed you,” Ji Yuxiao told him honestly.
Lin Luoqing smiled. “What a coincidence. I missed you too.”
He hugged Ji Yuxiao, his heart full of flowers.
Lin Fei and Ji Leyu finished school, packed their bags and left through the school gate.
Luo Jia was already waiting outside the school. Lin Fei opened the car door, only to become momentarily stunned.
“What’s wrong?” Ji Leyu asked as he leaned his head inside to look. Then he saw Lin Luoqing sitting in the car.
Ji Leyu was pleasantly surprised. “Dad!”
Lin Luoqing smiled and exclaimed, “Surprise!”
Ji Leyu looked at him with a smile, eyes curved. Lin Fei also subconsciously smiled.
He got into the car and sat next to Lin Luoqing. Ji Leyu also got in and sat beside Lin Fei.
“Dad, when did you come back? Why didn’t I know about it? Have you been home? Does my dad know?” He poked his head over, expressing all the questions in his heart like a small fish blowing bubbles.
Lin Luoqing listened to his series of questions and replied one by one, “I came back today. I went home and met your father. Your father and I planned to surprise you, so we didn’t tell you in advance.”
Ji Leyu pouted. “I knew that adults like to hide things from children.”
Lin Luoqing smiled and pinched his face. “Then are you surprised?”
Ji Leyu laughed again. “I’m surprised.”
Ji Leyu watched him with sparkling eyes. He hadn’t seen Lin Luoqing for a long time and inexplicably wanted to act like a baby with Lin Luoqing. He wanted to lean on Lin Luoqing and let Lin Luoqing hold him.
It was just that there was Lin Fei between him and Lin Luoqing. Ji Leyu was too embarrassed to ask Lin Fei to change with him. After all, Lin Fei hadn’t seen Lin Luoqing in so long. He felt that Lin Fei should also miss Lin Luoqing.
So he simply leaned against Lin Fei’s shoulder, hugging his arm while staring at Lin Luoqing. He asked, “Dad, can we sleep together tonight? Just you, me, Dad and Brother.”
“Yes.” Lin Luoqing smiled.
Ji Leyu was happy and his hands holding Lin Fei tightened a lot.
Lin Fei was already used to Ji Leyu relying on him and didn’t say anything. He didn’t talk much. He listened to Ji Leyu chattering for a long time before slowly saying, “Tomorrow is Christmas.”
“Yes, today is Christmas Eve,” Lin Luoqing said.
Lin Fei nodded.
Ji Leyu immediately remembered the apple given by the teacher that was in his bag. He quickly took it out and handed it to Lin Luoqing. “Here you go.”
He added, “This box contains the fruit of peace. Dad, you must be safe when working outside.”
Lin Fei, “……”
Lin Fei was a bit depressed. He originally wanted to give the apple to Lin Luoqing after returning home. He didn’t expect to be preempted by Ji Leyu.
Lin Luoqing accepted it with surprise and said, “Thank you.”
He had only realized it was almost Christmas when he saw Santa Claus decorations on the street on the way home today.
Therefore, he bought a few apples before returning home. As for Christmas presents, Lin Luoqing wanted to slowly choose them tomorrow when the two children were at school.
He looked at the box containing the apple that Ji Leyu handed him and glanced at Lin Fei.
Lin Fei was pinching Ji Leyu’s small face. Ji Leyu leaned on this shoulder, not annoyed at all. His eyes were full of innocence as he let Lin Fei pinch him.
Lin Fei saw the innocence in his eyes and let go.
The place that had been pinched was red and Lin Fei helped him rub it. He didn’t speak and just sighed in his heart.
Ji Leyu had given the apple to Lin Luoqing, so he should give the apple to Ji Yuxiao. Otherwise, Ji Yuxiao would probably be jealous if the two of them gave it to Lin Luoqing.
He still remembered that his uncle got quite jealous.
The three of them went home together. Lin Fei and Ji Leyu went to their bedrooms to put away their bags and Lin Luoqing also went to the bedroom to put away the apple.
He had just put away the apple when he heard a knock on the door. The next second, Lin Fei walked in.
“What’s wrong?” Lin Luoqing walked over.
“I want to discuss something with you,” Lin Fei said softly.
Lin Luoqing nodded, pulled him to the side of the bed and sat on the bed with him. “Let’s talk.”
Lin Fei saw the apple box on the table instantly, so he didn’t take a roundabout route and said directly, “Today at school, the teacher gave everyone an apple. Xiao Yu gave you an apple, so can I give my apple to Uncle?”
“Yes,” Lin Luoqing replied with a smile. “It is good that you have decided on this type of thing. Why discuss it with me?”
Lin Fei blinked and said calmly, “Because I originally was going to give it to you.”
He continued, “Then Xiao Yu gave it to you first. If I give it to you again, Uncle won’t have one and will be unhappy, right? I want to give him the one that was supposed to be given to you so he won’t be unhappy.”
But he was also afraid that if he didn’t give it to Lin Luoqing that Lin Luoqing would feel he liked Ji Yuxiao more and would be unhappy. This wouldn’t be good.
Therefore, he thought about it and decided to discuss it with Lin Luoqing first.
‘Alas,’ Lin Fei inwardly sighed. ‘If only he had two apples so no one would be unhappy.’
Lin Luoqing hadn’t expected Lin Fei’s little head to think so much and couldn’t help hugging him with a laugh.
“You are telling me now that you like me more so I don’t feel bad?”
Lin Fei didn’t speak. He had always been a bit childish and awkward in front of Lin Luoqing. He could frankly say what he liked or disliked about other people but he was rarely childish with Lin Luoqing.
Nevertheless, Lin Luoqing really liked his little awkward moments. Most of the time, Lin Fei was too mature and this made him worried. So every time he was wrong and shy, Lin Luoqing liked it even more. It made Lin Luoqing feel that he was still a child.
Lin Luoqing lowered his head and kissed him on the cheek. Lin Fei looked up at him with disgust and arrogance.
Lin Luoqing smiled and kissed him again. “I see. I won’t feel bad so go to your uncle. He will be very happy to receive your apple.”
Lin Fei nodded. If Lin Luoqing agreed then he would do it.
“Your uncle has always liked you. I am very happy that you can get along with him so well.” Lin Luoqing hugged his shoulder and shook him.
“I am an actor. An actor is a person who sometimes has to go out to film dramas or make movies. I won’t be able to stay by your side to accompany you at those times but you don’t have to worry. Your uncle will accompany you. He is the person who likes you the most and treats you the best in the world besides me. It is a good thing that you can like him. I won’t stop it.”
“You are so sensible, cute and good-looking. Naturally, everyone hopes that you will like them.”
Lin Fei, “……”
Lin Fei nodded. He was already able to accept his image in Lin Luoqing’s heart. He was obedient, sensible, well-behaved, good-looking, good at learning, excellent and unique, so everyone in the world would like him. He didn’t completely agree but Lin Luoqing thought this and it was fine as long as he was happy—as long as he liked it.
