FV: Chapter 115

Lin Fei turned to him, as expressionless as always. “You can’t?”

Ji Leyu, “……”

Ji Leyu really couldn’t do it.

Ji Leyu was shocked to find that among the family of four, he was the only one who couldn’t cook… he seemed to be different from everyone.

Ji Leyu silently shrunk back his little neck so he didn’t look obtrusive.

Ji Yuxiao hadn’t expected him to be able to cook at such a young age and was surprised. “You can actually cook noodles?”

Lin Fei nodded like it should be taken for granted.

Lin Luoqing thought about the noodles Lin Fei cooked in the pot when Lin Luoqing first crossed over. Lin Fei really knew how to cook noodles, but it was just boiling noodles. There were no side dishes. It was noodles boiled with soy sauce and salt.

Lin Luoqing thought of this and suddenly had an idea. “Yes, let’s have noodles at night. I’ll make the noodles and Fei Fei will boil them. Yuxiao, you are responsible for the scrambled eggs with tomatoes. I’ll make some fried sauce. Once the time comes, the oil will be splashed and we will eat a three-in-one.”

Ji Leyu, “……”

Ji Leyu raised his hand. “Then what should I do?”

He seemed to have nothing to do so Ji Leyu was a bit cautious.

Lin Luoqing said with a smile. “Help your father fetch the water. Then wait for the water to boil before letting your brother cook the noodles.”

Ji Leyu nodded quickly. He could fetch water. He could fetch a lot of water and fill the pot.

Ji Yuxiao listened to him arranging everyone’s affairs and felt like his heart was filled with hot water. It was full of warmth and blooming ripples.

It had been a long time since he had done this type of thing that only a family would do together.

It was obviously very simple but it seemed to be very rare. It felt like… home.

He looked at Lin Luoqing with gentle eyes. Due to his presence, this house became lively and vivid.

Lin Luoqing arranged the tasks for the night and was ready to go back to the room.

He stood up and asked Ji Yuxiao if he wanted to go back together.

Ji Yuxiao nodded and Lin Luoqing walked behind him, helping him push the wheelchair.

Lin Fei saw that they were leaving, so he got up.

It was only when he got up that he discovered Ji Leyu was still sitting on the sofa, intently watching TV.

Lin Fei, “……”

Ji Leyu felt that Lin Fei seemed to look over. His back straightened and his eyes didn’t blink. It was as if he didn’t notice at all.

This was the first day of the New Year’s holiday!

He didn’t want to do his homework!

It was the last day of the year!

He absolutely couldn’t spend it writing homework!

It was so tragic!

Lin Fei noticed his movement and shook his head. He decided to turn a blind eye and let Ji Leyu go this time.

He knew that on holidays, children didn’t like to read, let alone Ji Leyu.

Therefore, Lin Fei didn’t speak and followed Lin Luoqing and Ji Yuxiao to the elevator.

Ji Yuxiao saw him following but there were no traces of Ji Leyu. He looked back in confusion and found his little nephew motionless on the sofa and watching cartoons.

Ji Yuxiao didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. In the end, it was a holiday and he had never asked much from Ji Leyu. He just said, “Watch less TV and be careful of your eyes. Go back to your room after watching.”

“Yes,” Ji Leyu replied obediently.

Ji Yuxiao entered the elevator.

Ji Leyu waited until there was no sound before sighing with relief. His back was no longer straight and he leaned against the sofa to happily watch his cartoon.

Yay, there was finally no need to read~

Lin Fei got out of the elevator and planned to go back to the room to take a nap. Then he would read a book after waking up.

He said goodbye to Lin Luoqing and Ji Yuxiao and walked toward his bedroom.

Lin Luoqing and Ji Yuxiao didn’t plan to sleep. One of them had just accepted a new job while the other was busy with his career. They both went to the study and worked separately.

Ji Yuxiao saw the way he was tapping on his phone and asked, “Shall I make a study for you? I am going to design a study for Fei Fei once the final exam is over. I can design one for you as well.”

“But I will be going to film and won’t be home most of the time. I shouldn’t need one.”

Ji Yuxiao felt that he was right. He thought about it and suggested, “In that case, I will redesign this study and add a desk for you. This way, you can also work here with me.”

Lin Luoqing liked this suggestion. “If I don’t know anything then I can ask you directly.”

“Yes.” Ji Yuxiao nodded.

Lin Luoqing looked at him and smiled gently. “Thank you.”

“You’re welcome,” Ji Yuxiao said softly.

After watching the cartoon, Ji Leyu turned off the TV and returned to the second floor.

He was a bit timid as he tiptoed to the door of Lin Fei’s room. He carefully pushed open the door and slowly poked his head in.

“What is it?” Lin Fei asked calmly.

Ji Leyu was caught off guard by his sudden words and almost hit the door.

Why was he here?

How did he get caught again?

“Why are you here?” he wondered.

Lin Fei’s tone was flat. “This is my room.”

“I mean, why are you behind the door?”

Lin Fei raised the cup in his hand. “There is no water. I am going to get it.”

His room had always had pure water, but occasionally when he finished it, Lin Fei would go downstairs to the first floor to get water.

Ji Leyu, “……”

“I have water in my bedroom. Go and get it from my bedroom.”

Lin Fei didn’t speak but agreed. He went to his bedroom with Ji Leyu.

Ji Leyu handed him a bottle of water, took a bottle himself and followed Lin Fei back to his room.

Lin Fei turned to look at him. “Are you willing to read?”

Ji Leyu, “……”

“Do you have to be so cruel to me?” He tilted his head, seemingly helpless.

Lin Fei looked at him and inexplicably found him interesting. He reached out and pinched Ji Leyu’s face. Then he walked to the bay window to water his cacti and roses.

Winter had come and roses had long ceased to bloom. Lin Fei specifically checked how to raise roses in winter. After watering it, he took his small scissors and was ready to help trim the dead branches.

Ji Leyu sat on the bay window next to him, a bit sleepy. He slowly closed his eyes.

“Go to bed.” Lin Fei saw him like this the moment he turned around and gave a reminder.

Ji Leyu was reluctant. “I won’t.”

Lin Fei shrugged. “Go quickly.”

Ji Leyu placed an arm around his waist and acted like a baby with him. “But I want you to accompany me.”

“Are you sleepy? Don’t you want to sleep?” He blinked and acted cute.

Lin Fei stood up and collected the dead branches that had just been cut. “I’ve already slept.”

Ji Leyu, “……”

Ji Leyu silently puffed up his little face.

Lin Fei walked to the trash can, threw the dead branches in and told him, “I’m going to read.”

Ji Leyu snorted fiercely in anger before snorting again in dissatisfaction. Reading again!

You just want to read! You don’t want to accompany me at all!

He expressed his displeasure. “I’m not happy.”

Lin Fei was very calm. “You can read books together with me.”

Ji Leyu, “……”

Ji Leyu instantly stopped. His aura weakened visibly to the naked eye.

Then he had better sleep obediently.

He walked to Lin Fei’s bed, pulled the quilt and lay down.

Lin Fei glanced at him and didn’t say anything.

Ji Leyu rolled over and faced him. “I can’t sleep alone.”

“Then get up and read.”

Ji Leyu, “……”

“I’ll sleep now.”

He finished speaking and closed his eyes.

Then after a while, he called out to Lin Fei again. “Brother, I still can’t sleep.”

Lin Fei turned his head.

Ji Leyu blinked at him in a pitiful manner. “Can’t you stay with me for a while?”

He always pretended to be cute, pitiful and well-behaved. It was as if he was the simplest and most naive child under the sun.

Lin Fei was very clear about it. Just like now, he knew that Ji Leyu’s pitiful appearance was just a pretense.

He just wanted Lin Fei to accompany him and to agree to him.

So clingy.

Lin Fei sighed, stood up with the book and walked to the bed. He took off his shoes and sat on it.

Ji Leyu immediately came over.

“Sleep,” Lin Fei said without any expression.

“Aren’t you sleeping?”

Lin Fei shook the book in his hand. “I will read the book.”

“Oh.” Ji Leyu obediently stopped talking, hugged him and closed his eyes.

Lin Fei leaned against the headboard and quietly read the book.

The sun sank to the west and the daylight in the room slowly faded. Lin Fei looked down at Ji Leyu’s sleeping state and hesitantly turned on the lowest setting of the night light.

Ji Leyu didn’t wake up and slept peacefully.

Lin Fei was relieved and continued reading the book with the remaining daylight and the night light.

When Ji Leyu woke up and rubbed his eyes to look at Lin Fei, he found that Lin Fei had turned on the light.

“Is it already evening?” He asked in surprise. His voice was soft and sticky, as if he was a glutinous rice cake rolled with a layer of coconut flakes.

Lin Fei saw his dazed appearance and felt he was really cute at this time.

In particular, his face was flushed from sleep. He was pink and like a glutinous rice cake with strawberry filling.

The sweetness could be seen with one glance.

“No.”

“Then why did you turn on the light?”

“I want to read,” Lin Fei said.

Ji Leyu understood. He sat up against Lin Fei, stayed next to him and looked at the book in Lin Fei’s hand.

Since he wanted to see it too, Lin Fei moved to the side so he could see clearly.

Ji Leyu had just woken up and it was when he was most well-behaved. He read quietly and didn’t say much.

Lin Fei saw that he seemed to be reading and didn’t care about him any longer. Lin Fei returned his attention to the book.

He read it very seriously. His reading speed was faster than Ji Leyu’s so after a while, he finished reading.

Lin Fei asked Ji Leyu, “Have you finished reading it?”

Ji Leyu shook his head.

Lin Fei waited until Ji Leyu nodded and gave a soft hum before turning the page.

Ji Leyu was leaning against his shoulder and it wasn’t very convenient for him to turn the page, so he simply stretched out his arm and let Ji Leyu lean into his arms, as if holding Ji Leyu in his arms. This way, it was more convenient to turn the page.

Ji Leyu had no objection to this. He obediently leaned into Lin Fei’s arms and read the book with him.

He hadn’t read the previous parts so there were always things he didn’t understand.

“Why did he hit him?”

“Why didn’t they help that little sister?”

“Is that aunt her mother?”

Lin Fei patiently answered his questions until Ji Leyu asked him, “What type of chicken is a turkey? There is a big chicken, a small chicken, a rooster and a hen. Why is there still a turkey? Are there water chickens?”

Lin Fei, who was also seeing the term turkey for the first time, “……”

Lin Fei handed the book to him, pulled open a drawer, took out his tablet and started to search for a turkey.

Once Lin Luoqing came to find Lin Fei, he saw the two of them leaning together and reading.

It wasn’t known what they saw but Ji Leyu was emphasizing to Lin Fei, “Brother! Absolutely! Can’t! Bully! Little brother! Those who bully their little brothers aren’t good brothers.”

He stared straight at Lin Fei as he spoke and the meaning of his expression was very obvious.

Lin Fei, “……”

Lin Fei didn’t have any intention of bullying him. However, Ji Leyu stated it so clearly that he was interested. He reached out, pinched Ji Leyu’s face and gently pulled.

Ji Leyu didn’t understand why this person suddenly pinched him again. It was just that he had always been obedient in front of Lin Fei. He didn’t resist and just looked at him suspiciously.

Lin Fei saw his puzzled eyes and felt that he was really easy to bully. Lin Fei let go and helped rub his little face that was pinched red by him.

He looked up at Lin Luoqing, who smiled and told him, “It is time to eat.”

Lin Fei nodded. He noted down the page number and closed the book. Then he placed it on his bedside table and got out of bed.

Ji Leyu got out of bed with him and went out happily.

Ji Yuxiao was already waiting outside the door. He saw Ji Leyu coming out and teased, “Not watching TV?”

“I finished,” Ji Leyu said sweetly.

Ji Yuxiao laughed. He adjusted the direction of the wheelchair and headed toward the elevator.

Lin Luoqing pushed him and Ji Leyu walked beside Lin Fei, expressing his views on the book he had just read while following the two of them into the elevator.

The family went into the kitchen together.

Lin Luoqing scooped up the flour, got water and started making the noodles.

Ji Leyu and Lin Fei watched curiously. Lin Luoqing told them what he was doing as he made the noodles. Once the noodles were almost done, he grabbed two pieces and gave them to Ji Leyu and Lin Fei respectively, letting both of them play with it.

“Do you want it?” He deliberately teased Ji Yuxiao.

Ji Yuxiao, “……”

Ji Yuxiao felt that his wife was really naughty sometimes.

Ji Leyu held the dough. He kneaded it round for a while and then pressed it flat the next moment. He had a lot of fun.

Lin Fei didn’t play much. He just squeezed it and continued to watch Lin Luoqing’s movements.

Lin Luoqing made the dough and prepared to make the noodles.

He did it very quickly. In a short time, long and thin noodles were made.

Ji Leyu let out a ‘wow’ and clapped. “Dad, you are so amazing.”

“It isn’t bad.” Lin Luoqing smiled.

He went to the refrigerator to get the sweet noodle sauce, minced pork, dried tofu and other ingredients. Then he started to make the fried sauce.

Lin Fei and Ji Leyu both watched with interest. Once they could smell it, Ji Leyu praised it without hesitation. “It is so fragrant.”

“Then you can eat more later,” Lin Luoqing said with a smile.

Ji Leyu nodded. “Yes.”

Lin Luoqing made the fried sauce and then it was Ji Yuxiao’s turn to fry the tomato and eggs.

Lin Luoqing originally thought that his body was inconvenient. Then he saw Ji Yuxiao’s calm look and didn’t say anything. He silently helped Ji Yuxiao cut the tomatoes and beat the eggs.

Ji Yuxiao said, “…Then I really just need to fry it?”

“Isn’t this good?” Lin Luoqing looked at him.

Ji Yuxiao laughed a bit helplessly.

How should he put it? Lin Luoqing was really too careful with him sometimes.

“Okay.” He deliberately lengthened his tone. “My wife is gentle and considerate. How can it be bad?”

After speaking, Lin Luoqing came over and helped him tie the apron. Ji Yuxiao didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “It is just one dish. It isn’t worth putting on an apron.”

“Stir fry it well. Jiayou.”

“Dad, jiayou.”

The smile on Ji Yuxiao’s face became more obvious. After a while, he completed the scrambled eggs with tomatoes that looked quite decent.

He was ostensibly modest, but in fact boastful at this time. “Oh, I haven’t done it for a long time. It isn’t as skilled as normal.”

Lin Luoqing saw him pretending to be dissatisfied even though he was obviously satisfied. ‘…Brother, we are all your own people. Who are you showing off to like this?’
