FV: Chapter 122

By the time Lin Fei came in, Ji Leyu had just sat down in the bathtub. He saw Lin Fei and called out sweetly, “Brother.”

Seeing his face full of smiles, Lin Fei asked, “What happened?”

Ji Leyu was happy. “Dad said he likes me.”

Lin Fei, “……”

Lin Fei silently turned to look at Lin Luoqing.

Lin Luoqing suddenly felt a bit guilty and hurriedly said, “I like you too. I like both you and Xiao Yu.”

Lin Fei didn’t speak and just glanced at him meaningfully. This made Lin Luoqing feel even more guilty.

Lin Fei took off his clothes and sat in the bathtub. Ji Leyu immediately came to his side, voice full of sweetness as he asked softly, “Do you like me?”

After he finished speaking, he tilted his head and blinked, eyes full of anticipation.

Lin Fei pinched his face but didn’t say anything.

Ji Leyu hugged his arm. “Do you like me? Do you like me or not?”

“I don’t like you,” Lin Fei replied.

For some reason, he always had bad habits when it came to Ji Leyu, such as pinching his face and teasing him.

Ji Leyu was dissatisfied. “No way. You must like me. How can you not like me?”

“Then why are you still asking?”

“I want to hear it from you.” His tone was sweet. “Do you like me? You do, right?”

He shook Lin Fei’s arm as he spoke.

Lin Fei was helpless and had to give a light ‘hmm.’

Ji Leyu was happy. “I knew it.”

He tilted his head and smiled with satisfaction.

Lin Luoqing looked at it and felt that the two of them were quite funny.

“Okay, much beloved Xiao Yu. Can we take a bath now?” He asked.

“Yes,” Ji Leyu responded obediently. He sat upright in the water and asked Lin Luoqing to apply shower gel to himself.

He was in a good mood. He constantly played with the water in the bath until he was taken out by Lin Luoqing, still laughing softly.

Lin Luoqing touched his head and kissed him on the face. “Get dressed by yourself. I’ll go and see your brother.”

Ji Leyu looked up at him with his red face and softly agreed. “Okay.”

Lin Luoqing went back to the bathroom.

Lin Fei had already rinsed and was getting out of the bathtub.

Lin Luoqing quickly took the bath towel and helped him wipe his body.

He looked into Lin Fei’s eyes and explained to him, “I am Xiao Yu’s father. Of course I like him, just like your uncle likes you. However, I still like you the most, understand?”

Lin Fei raised an eyebrow. His eyes clearly said, ‘Really?’

Lin Luoqing nodded. “Really. Believe me.”

Lin Fei saw his serious expression and suddenly smiled.

“I know,” he said softly.

“You looked at me like that just now,” Lin Luoqing sighed with relief. “I thought you were jealous, and it scared me to death.”

“I’m not jealous,” Lin Fei said calmly.

“Then you are…” Lin Luoqing realized and said in disbelief, “Did you do it on purpose to tease me?”

Lin Fei’s eyes curved, and there was a rare childishness in his eyes.

Lin Luoqing reached out to tickle him. “Who told you to tease me?” Still, he was smiling as he spoke to Lin Fei.

It was a pity that Lin Fei wasn’t ticklish. It was useless even after Lin Luoqing tried for a long time. Instead, Lin Fei found a gap and tickled him in return.

Lin Luoqing let him tickle for a while. Seeing him smiling happily, Lin Luoqing grabbed his hand to prevent him from continuing to tickle him. “Okay, okay, why are you still bullying your uncle? Don’t tickle me.”

“You tickled me first,” Lin Fei said.

“Isn’t it because you deliberately scared me?”

Lin Luoqing finished speaking and laughed again. Lin Fei would actually deliberately tease him. It was really rare. He still remembered in the beginning when Lin Fei wasn’t even willing to look at him. He looked at Lin Fei, and Lin Fei looked out the window. It was only when Lin Luoqing asked questions that Lin Fei would turn to look at him.

Now he would deliberately tease him.

It could be seen that after staying with Ji Leyu, it wasn’t only Ji Leyu who became well-behaved. Lin Fei also became a bit livelier.

Of course, Lin Luoqing didn’t think there was anything wrong with Lin Fei’s cold and calm personality. He just hoped that Lin Fei could be happy every day. The fact that he had the heart to tease others showed that his mood should be excellent.

He kissed Lin Fei on the face. Lin Fei, who was kissed, was a bit confused. Why did Lin Luoqing suddenly kiss him?

“Fei Fei will tease me now. It seems Fei Fei also likes me very much.”

Lin Fei didn’t admit it. He was always awkward and arrogant in front of Lin Luoqing. His ears were red and he had to say, “No.”

“Then I will be sad.” Lin Luoqing teased him.

Lin Fei, “……”

Lin Fei lost his mind in an instant.

Lin Luoqing knew it.

“I’m not happy. How can you coax me?” He teased Lin Fei gently. “How can you make me happy?”

Lin Fei, “……”

Lin Fei was a bit embarrassed.

He stared at Lin Luoqing, and Lin Luoqing also looked at him as if waiting for his response.

“You close your eyes,” he said awkwardly.

Lin Luoqing immediately closed his eyes.

Lin Fei approached him and kissed him on the face.

Lin Luoqing laughed and asked him, “Can I open my eyes now?”

“Yes,” Lin Fei said calmly.

Lin Luoqing opened his eyes. Lin Fei had pursed lips and a slightly shy expression on his face.

Lin Luoqing thought he was cute and kissed him on the face again. “Now I’m very happy. If you kiss me, then I am super happy.”

Lin Fei, “……”

Lin Fei lowered his head silently, his ears red.

Lin Luoqing stopped teasing him. He wiped Lin Fei’s body for him and carried him out.

Ji Leyu had already changed clothes and was lying on the bed while waiting for the two of them.

Seeing them coming out, Ji Lei quickly handed over Lin Fei’s pajamas. “These are Brother’s pajamas.”

“So good,” Lin Luoqing praised him.

Ji Leyu smiled sweetly.

Lin Fei changed his clothes and got out of bed. Ji Leyu immediately followed. The two of them went with Lin Luoqing to his and Ji Yuxiao’s bedroom.


The moment the door opened, Ji Yuxiao heard a loud child’s voice.

The next second, Ji Leyu rushed to the bedside.

His eyes were shining like he had encountered something good. He looked very happy and was fragrant and sweet like a freshly steamed custard bun.

“Why are you so happy?”

Ji Leyu took his hand and asked him, “Dad, do you like me?”

Ji Yuxiao took him to the bed and said softly, “Of course, my favorite is you.”

Ji Leyu smiled even more happily. His eyes were crystal clear like amber honey.

“Just now, Dad and Brother also said they like me.” His voice was low, like a child telling his parents what was on his mind. He was happy and a bit shy.

Ji Yuxiao glanced at Lin Luoqing and Lin Fei, who also came in with him, and said with a smile, “You are so cute. It is natural for everyone to like you.”

Ji Leyu felt the same in his heart and couldn’t help being happy. He threw himself into Ji Yuxiao’s arms, hugging him and acting spoiled.

Ji Yuxiao hugged him and patted his head.

He felt that Ji Leyu was a lot brighter recently. He had smiled sweetly previously, but now he seemed more like the bright and gorgeous child he watched grow up.

He still remembered the time when Ji Leyu came back here with him. Ji Leyu was very well-behaved and obedient. He was even a bit quiet. If Ji Yuxiao was in the study all day, Ji Leyu didn’t disturb him. Ji Yuxiao sent him to school, and he said he could go alone. If Ji Yuxiao went out, Ji Leyu would ask him when he would come back. If he didn’t go out, Ji Leyu wouldn’t go out either.

Since that accident, Ji Leyu hadn’t gone to play again.

He didn’t go to the playground or his classmates’ houses. He obediently stayed at home and accompanied Ji Yuxiao.

It was distressing that he was so sensible.

Of course, Ji Yuxiao knew that after going through such an experience, it was inevitable that anyone would have a change in temperament, let alone a child of Ji Leyu’s age. He was still so young, and it was impossible to have no changes. This was why he didn’t force Ji Leyu to be as lively as he was before.

He just wished for Ji Leyu to be happier.

When he and Lin Luoqing got married, what worried him the most was whether Lin Luoqing could treat Ji Leyu kindly and whether Lin Fei and Ji Leyu could get along happily.

He decided at that time. If there were conflicts between them, he wouldn’t hesitate to choose Ji Leyu.

After all, he and Lin Luoqing weren’t familiar with each other at that time. They had their own ideas before getting married. He could continue to lose sleep or give up a more perfect disguise, but he could never give up Ji Leyu’s happiness.

Ji Leyu’s parents were gone and he only had Ji Yuxiao. Ji Yuxiao had to take care of him.

He never dreamed that none of the things he worried about would happen. Everything was better than the best situation he pictured.

Not only did Ji Leyu accept Lin Luoqing and Lin Fei, but he even slowly changed back to his bright and happy appearance.

He was born lively, confident, and proud. He was the son of Ji Yuling and was born to stand proudly. His parents loved him, and his uncle spoiled him. He didn’t need to worry about anything, he just needed to be happy. This was the only hope and requirement that his parents and Ji Yuxiao had for him at this age.

Now he was finally back on that track again.

Ji Yuxiao was happy and relieved. Marrying Lin Luoqing was the best decision he had made in his life. Not just for him but also Ji Leyu.

He looked up and smiled at Lin Luoqing with indescribable gratitude in his heart.

Lin Luoqing also smiled and sat on the bed with Lin Fei in his arms.

“Today is the first day of the new year. Xiao Yu, do you have any wishes? Maybe it can be achieved.”

Ji Leyu lifted his head from Ji Yuxiao’s arm. He thought about it and considered it very seriously.

“I hope Dad’s legs will get better soon.”

“In addition—” He turned to look at Lin Luoqing. “I hope Dad can work smoothly this year and be safe and sound.”

“Finally, I hope that Brother can take first place in the final exam.”

Lin Luoqing listened to this. He was very moved at the beginning, but couldn’t help laughing when he heard the last one. “You want your brother to take first place in the exam. Don’t you want to take first place?”

“Yes.” Ji Yuxiao asked him, “What place do you want to get in the exam?”

Ji Leyu, “……”

Ji Leyu shrunk back his little neck and blinked at them. “I’m just a kindergarten student who transferred halfway.”

Ji Yuxiao laughed. “You think you are a kindergarten student again? Why didn’t you think of this when you transferred schools? Who swore to me that you could keep up? Was it you?”

Ji Leyu spoke eloquently, “Keeping up doesn’t mean first place in the exam. Brother should get first place.”

Once he finished speaking, he quickly changed the topic and looked at Lin Fei, “Brother, can you get first place in the exam?”

Lin Fei’s tone was calm as if what Ji Leyu was asking him wasn’t whether he could take first place in the exam but whether he wanted to eat dinner.

“Yes.” He was calm, confident, and arrogant. He didn’t feel that there was anything wrong with his attitude and answer.

Ji Leyu thought so as well and decided on his own. “Then once you take first place, we will go home and celebrate with you.”

Lin Fei looked up at Lin Luoqing, and Lin Luoqing nodded. “I’ll take you out to play at that time.”

He added, “You and Xiao Yu together.”

The moment Ji Leyu heard they would go out to play, he thought of Ji Yuxiao’s legs and shook his head. “Is it okay not to go out to play? I don’t want to go out.”

Ji Yuxiao patted him on the head. “Go out and play. You haven’t gone out to play in half a year.”

But… Ji Leyu looked at him. If he went out to play, how could Ji Yuxiao play?

They couldn’t all play while Ji Yuxiao watched, right?

Lin Luoqing looked at him silently. He saw that Ji Leyu was only staring at Ji Yuxiao and understood why he didn’t want to go out to play.

“Go out.” He smiled. “We haven’t seen a movie together. Once the time comes, pick one to watch and the four of us will go together, okay?”

Ji Leyu blinked. If they were going to a movie rather than a playground, then his uncle could also go and watch with them.

He had no opinion and nodded happily. “Okay!”

He hadn’t been to the movies in a long time, and he wanted to watch a movie.

Ji Yuxiao saw Lin Luoqing secretly changing the concept when he spoke. He knew Lin Luoqing was taking care of Ji Leyu and silently smiled at him.

Lin Luoqing also smiled and winked at him.

Once he finished winking, he looked down at Lin Fei. “But you don’t have to feel pressured. No matter what your exam placement is, your uncle and I will still take you out to play.”

“There is no pressure.” Lin Fei’s tone was light as if he didn’t quite understand it. “Why would there be pressure?”

Lin Luoqing thought, ‘This…’

“It doesn’t matter if you can’t get first place. You are so good, and it is normal not to take first place occasionally.”

Lin Fei didn’t understand it even more. “Why wouldn’t I pass the exam?”

“I’m always number one every time,” Lin Fei said this like it was reasonable. It was because it was too reasonable that there was a faint look on his face like it was insignificant.

Ji Leyu also agreed. “Yes, that’s right. My brother likes to read so much. He will definitely be number one, number one in the grade!”

Lin Luoqing, “……”

Okay, it was because he didn’t understand the realm of the learning god.

The god of learning said he would get first place in the test. How could a mortal like him understand?

He nodded and changed the subject. “Then Fei Fei, what are your new year wishes?”

Lin Fei didn’t have any wishes. Then he thought about what Ji Leyu had said before. He also hoped that Ji Yuxiao’s legs could recover quickly and that Lin Luoqing’s work would go smoothly. If he had to add another one, it was that he hoped Ji Leyu wouldn’t get too bad a place in the exam.

It probably wouldn’t be too bad, Lin Fei thought. After all, he had recently given Ji Leyu so many questions. Ji Leyu had done everything, so he should know everything.

He looked at his younger brother who couldn’t get first place and was very worried. How could he not get first place?

He still read too few books!

He had to increase the amount!
