FV: Chapter 121
Lin Luoqing promised Ji Leyu and Lin Fei that they would sleep together tonight. Therefore, they planned to shower early so they could bathe the two children and pick them up to go to sleep.
At 9 o’clock, he told Ji Yuxiao, “I’ll go take a shower first.”
Ji Yuxiao saw him putting down his phone and preparing to go into the bathroom. He hesitated for a moment before saying, “Or let’s go together.”
Lin Luoqing was surprised.
He turned to look at Ji Yuxiao in disbelief and said uncertainly, “Have you thought about it?”
This was really rare. Ji Yuxiao had always been evasive about letting him see his legs out of embarrassment.
Up to now, Lin Luoqing hadn’t seen Ji Yuxiao’s legs very much. Firstly, Ji Yuxiao was reluctant to show him. Secondly, he was blindfolded in the first half of the night, but in the second half, he lay on Ji Yuxiao’s body almost the entire time. He just wanted to see Ji Yuxiao’s face and couldn’t care less about peeking at his legs.
Ji Yuxiao nodded. “Yes.”
Lin Luoqing said ‘oh’ with a calm expression, but he had secret expectations in his heart.
He pushed Ji Yuxiao and entered the bathroom with him.
Lin Luoqing turned the tap and glanced at Ji Yuxiao, who was still sitting in the wheelchair in a well-dressed manner.
He was afraid that Ji Yuxiao would be embarrassed and would feel even more embarrassed when getting up. Therefore, he took off his clothes first, sat in the bath, and obediently closed his eyes.
Ji Yuxiao was amused by his words.
He had made a decision, and he naturally wouldn’t regret it. Even so, Lin Luoqing’s appearance made him feel warm in his heart.
‘So cute,’ Ji Yuxiao thought.
He slowly undressed and moved himself to the bathtub using his strength.
He went in, so there was a splash in the water that was a bit louder than when Lin Luoqing went in.
Hearing this sound, Lin Luoqing instinctively closed his eyes tightly so he wouldn’t reflexively open them.
He knew that Ji Yuxiao had already come in, so he asked, “Can I open my eyes?”
“You can’t,” Ji Yuxiao deliberately teased him.
Lin Luoqing continued to close his eyes, very well-behaved.
Ji Yuxiao saw him and wanted to blindfold him again. Ji Yuxiao recalled the way he was blindfolded and how his tears soaked the black satin. He felt itchy in his heart, causing him to quickly let out a low cough so he didn’t think about these messy things.
“Come here,” he told Lin Luoqing.
Lin Luoqing heard his voice and moved in front of him uncertainly. After moving a few times, he was pulled by someone.
He opened his eyes reflexively and saw Ji Yuxiao raise his eyebrow. “I didn’t say you could open your eyes. Why did you open them? You aren’t being obedient.”
Lin Luoqing was helpless. “You pulled me so suddenly. I was naturally scared as a result. How could I not open my eyes?”
Once he finished speaking, he closed his eyes obediently.
Ji Yuxiao really hadn’t expected him to be so well-behaved and obediently close his eyes again. Ji Yuxiao couldn’t help laughing and pinched Lin Luoqing’s face. “Why are you so cute?”
“So I can open my eyes now?” Lin Luoqing asked him.
“Of course not.” Ji Yuxiao let go of his face and touched it in a good mood.
Lin Luoqing couldn’t do anything and had to continue to keep his eyes closed.
Ji Yuxiao saw that he had his head raised and his eyes closed. He was like a spirit in the water. Ji Yuxiao slowly held his cheek, approached him, and kissed him on the lips.
Lin Luoqing was stunned for a moment. He hadn’t expected that Ji Yuxiao wouldn’t let him open his eyes just to kiss him.
His face turned red while his heart felt like a blooming flower. Nectar spilled all over the ground.
‘Why is he so careful?’ Lin Luoqing thought. ‘He is outwardly cold but deeply passionate inside.’
He thought so and couldn’t help laughing. He hugged Ji Yuxiao and kissed him cooperatively.
Once Ji Yuxiao had kissed him enough and took Lin Luoqing into his arms, he finally said, “You can open your eyes.”
Lin Luoqing raised his eyelids and looked at him. His eyes were gentle, and there was a somewhat sly and smug smile.
Ji Yuxiao felt that he was no longer like a spirit in the water but a little fox hiding bad intentions.
He stretched out his hand, squeezed some shower gel, and applied it to Lin Luoqing’s shoulder, ready to help his little fox apply shower gel.
Lin Luoqing had never been treated like this before. He was startled and quickly dodged. “I can do it myself. I can apply it on myself.”
“It is the same if I apply it.”
“What is the same?” Lin Luoqing said and was about to distance himself from Ji Yuxiao.
The moment he pulled away, he was dragged back into Ji Yuxiao’s arms.
“I can’t apply it like this.” Lin Luoqing was dissatisfied.
“So I said I would help you.” Ji Yuxiao hugged him and didn’t let go.
Lin Luoqing snorted. “You have such a good idea.”
Ji Yuxiao heard this, thought about it, and let go. “Okay, then apply it yourself.”
Lin Luoqing was a bit suspicious. Ji Yuxiao put one hand on the edge of the bathtub and looked at him leisurely. “Get started.”
Lin Luoqing, “……”
How could he apply it like this?
“Why aren’t you moving?” Ji Yuxiao said deliberately. “Do you need your husband to help you?”
Lin Luoqing turned around angrily and turned his back on this person. However, he always felt Ji Yuxiao’s eyes on him. No matter how he looked at this scene, it was wrong.
“You close your eyes.” He turned back towards Ji Yuxiao.
Ji Yuxiao chuckled. He reached out his hand, moved forward a bit, and hugged Lin Luoqing’s waist, whispering in his ear, “Are you shy?”
“It isn’t like I haven’t seen it.”
Lin Luoqing was embarrassed and pinched him.
Ji Yuxiao smiled and grabbed his hand. Lin Luoqing struggled in his arms like a fish. He struggled and struggled before feeling a problem.
Lin Luoqing, “……”
Ji Yuxiao coughed and looked like a dog. “If you rub like this, then even a saint will catch on fire.”
“Stop insulting saints. Can I burn one of your relics with this fire?”
“You can burn me into chestnuts,” Ji Yuxiao said calmly.
Lin Luoqing was amused by these words and laughed loudly. He finally stopped struggling.
Seeing him laugh, Ji Yuxiao put his arms around this person again and said softly, “I will let Xiao Li buy chestnuts tomorrow and stir fry chestnuts with sugar.”
“Why don’t you fry them for me?”
Ji Yuxiao thought about it. He had never done this before, but he should be able to learn, right?”
“That’s fine. Then I’ll go online and look at a tutorial,” he agreed in a doting manner.
Lin Luoqing was happy and didn’t care about him any longer.
He was about to take a bath well when he looked down and saw Ji Yuxiao’s legs.
Hidden in the water, his legs were very white and long. At first glance, they looked no different from an ordinary person’s legs, but Lin Luoqing knew that they couldn’t stand up.
Lin Luoqing was a bit uncomfortable for some reason.
Ji Yuxiao noticed his gaze, kissed him on the face, and said gently, “It’s okay. They will be fine.”
Lin Luoqing nodded.
He actually wanted to say it didn’t matter if they didn’t get better and he wouldn’t mind, but he couldn’t bear to let Ji Yuxiao really not get better.
“Can I touch them?” He turned to ask Ji Yuxiao.
Ji Yuxiao saw the distress in his eyes and was a bit helpless. He had been afraid that Lin Luoqing would show such an expression after seeing his legs. He had accepted his condition and was used to it, but Lin Luoqing would still feel uncomfortable and sorry for him due to their feelings.
Ji Yuxiao touched his face. “It’s okay, it really will be fine. I assure you that I will take good care of them and recover as soon as possible.”
“Yes,” Lin Luoqing hurriedly responded.
Ji Yuxiao smiled, took his hand, and placed it on his leg. “Touch it.”
This actually wasn’t the first time Lin Luoqing touched Ji Yuxiao’s legs. He had touched them previously when massaging Ji Yuxiao.
However, this was the first time he touched Ji Yuxiao’s legs without any obstacles.
It was only then that he realized Ji Yuxiao’s legs really were different from everyone else’s. His muscles had deteriorated, and the flesh on his legs was soft as if there was no support.
He hadn’t been in a wheelchair for too long, or his leg muscles would’ve started to atrophy.
However, it was only a matter of time. As long as his legs weren’t well, they would atrophy sooner or later.
Lin Luoqing couldn’t think of what this would look like and instinctively refused.
For him, Ji Yuxiao was the most perfect person he had ever seen. He didn’t want the other person to have such a day. He still hoped that Ji Yuxiao would be able to stand up. It wasn’t because he thought it was bad that Ji Yuxiao was disabled. He just thought that a person like Ji Yuxiao should be unrestrained and reckless. He should have everything. He was the pride of heaven and shouldn’t be confined to a wheelchair, let alone trapped by his legs.
Lin Luoqing held his knee and rubbed it gently. It would be fine, he thought. It would be fine.
He believed it.
He turned to look at Ji Yuxiao, hugging his neck, and kissing his lips. Then Lin Luoqing smiled brightly with clear eyes. He gave off a dazzling radiance.
Ji Yuxiao rubbed his forehead and whispered, “Are you uncomfortable?”
“I am a bit uncomfortable. Once you recover, then I won’t be uncomfortable at all.”
“Okay,” Ji Yuxiao promised him. “I promise that I will get better soon.”
“Don’t make it too hard for yourself,” Lin Luoqing quickly said. “Just do it step by step and don’t force it too much. I hope you will be well and want you to be better, but even if you aren’t well all the time, you are still you. So don’t force it.”
Ji Yuxiao chuckled and hugged him tighter. “I know.”
He added, “You love me so much. How dare I make it difficult for myself when I might make you uncomfortable?”
“It is good that you know.” Lin Luoqing didn’t refute it.
Ji Yuxiao’s heart softened by these words. He thought that Lin Luoqing must’ve never been in love, or he wouldn’t keep expressing his heart to others. If he said too much, the other person might not cherish it.
The more they heard it, the more they got used to it.
Nevertheless, Ji Yuxiao hugged the person in his arms tightly. He was quite grateful that Lin Luoqing had never been in a relationship before, so he could say what was on his mind and say the most honest words with sincerity. He couldn’t wait to show the liking in his hands for the other person to see and ask, ‘It looks good. Do you like it?’
Lin Luoqing’s heart had never been hurt, and his feelings were gentle and pure. Every time he looked at Ji Yuxiao, he only saw Ji Yuxiao in his eyes.
Ji Yuxiao hadn’t expected his first love to be such a person. Still, he was very glad that his first love was Lin Luoqing.
He would guard Lin Luoqing’s liking, let him put their hands together, and hold his liking firmly, always maintaining the purest and most sincere appearance.
He would never be hurt and never need to change because Ji Yuxiao would always be by his side, letting him live forever in splendor and light.
Lin Luoqing was still worried about the two children, so he and Ji Yuxiao didn’t spend too long washing. They got up and got out of the bathtub.
He wrapped himself in a bathrobe, wiped Ji Yuxiao’s body, and asked him, “Shall I carry you out?”
Ji Yuxiao had long guessed he would be like this and didn’t refuse.
Lin Luoqing was in a good mood and carried him out of the bathtub. Then he helped grab Ji Yuxiao’s bathrobe. “Do the rest yourself. I’ll go and bathe Xiao Yu and Fei Fei.”
Ji Yuxiao teased him. “I thought you were going to help me with the rest.”
“It isn’t impossible if you want.”
Ji Yuxiao, “……”
“Then let’s go take care of the children first.”
Lin Luoqing smiled, glanced at him, and walked out.
Ji Leyu was sitting next to Lin Fei and reading a book.
His homework had already been written, and he did the exercises Lin Fei asked him to do. He even recited an ancient poem to Lin Fei. It could be said to be the most fulfilling day in Ji Leyu’s life.
Therefore, he strongly said, “I won’t write, I won’t write. I won’t write anything else today.”
Lin Fei saw that the task had been completed and didn’t embarrass him. “Then you go and play.”
Ji Leyu really went to play. Then after playing, he came back to Lin Fei’s side.
Lin Fei was still reading his unfinished collection of stories. Ji Leyu really couldn’t understand how someone like him could like reading all day, but he was obedient. He didn’t bother Lin Fei and leaned over to read it with him.
Lin Fei saw him coming over and moved the book to the side. Finally, the two of them read it together.
Lin Luoqing came to find them and saw that the two children were still reading at night with the lights on. It wasn’t easy to learn!
Lin Luoqing was once again moved by Lin Fei’s love of learning.
No wonder why he was a god of learning later. This was simply too deserved!
It was unscientific!
Ji Leyu turned his head when he heard the sound. He saw it was Lin Luoqing and immediately became happy. “Are you going to take us for a bath?”
“Yes.” Lin Luoqing smiled. “Do you want to wash separately or together?”
“Together, together,” Ji Leyu said quickly.
He didn’t read the book any longer. He jumped off the chair, walked in front of Lin Luoqing, took his hand, and said positively, “Let’s go. I can do it now.”
“Then you have to hurry up too,” Lin Luoqing told Lin Fei.
Lin Fei looked over at him, tone calm. “You wash Xiao Yu first. I’m almost finished reading.”
“Okay.” Lin Luoqing didn’t rush him.
He brought Ji Leyu to the bathroom and started to help him undress.
As his clothes were being unbuttoned, Ji Leyu looked at him and suddenly said, “Dad.”
“What is it?’ Lin Luoqing looked at him.
Ji Leyu smiled and approached him mysteriously, “I will tell you something.”
“What is it?”
“My dad also likes soup.” He finished speaking and blinked slightly, completely cute.
Lin Luoqing instantly fell in love with him.
“You know a lot.”
Ji Leyu nodded proudly and asked, “So Dad, do you know?”
“What should I know?” Lin Luoqing deliberately teased him.
“Of course, that he likes you.”
Lin Luoqing laughed and rubbed Ji Leyu’s head. “You know too much.”
Ji Leyu smiled. “Then now you know too.”
“Why do you want me to know?” Lin Luoqing asked him again.
“He likes you. If you know, won’t you be happy?” Ji Leyu was very considerate. He was very happy knowing his uncle liked him. Then wouldn’t Lin Luoqing also be very happy knowing that his uncle liked him?
Lin Luoqing nodded. “So you will be happy knowing that others like you?”
‘Of course not,’ Ji Leyu thought. He didn’t like others, so what did it matter to him if they liked him or not?
If he was happy every time someone liked him, since there were so many people in kindergarten who liked him, wouldn’t he die of happiness?
He didn’t want this.
Even so, Ji Leyu nodded. After all, he hoped that he was a pure, flawless, cute, and ignorant child in Lin Luoqing’s heart.
Lin Luoqing looked at him and nodded with a smile. He pinched Ji Leyu’s face and asked him, “Then have I ever told you that I like you?”
“I like you, you know?”
Ji Leyu was rarely stunned.
He hadn’t expected Lin Luoqing to say this. After a long time, he nodded happily. He threw himself into Lin Luoqing’s arms and hugged him.
“I see.” He rubbed against Lin Luoqing’s shoulder, heart full of joy.
Of course, he knew that Lin Luoqing liked him. However, he was still very happy when Lin Luoqing said this to him.
His face was a bit red as he hugged Lin Luoqing in a spoiled manner, unwilling to let go.
