FV: Chapter 135
Ji Yuxiao noticed his eyes and looked back in doubt, only to find that Lin Fei was looking at them.
Ji Yuxiao, “……”
This was probably the most embarrassing thing about parents and children sleeping together.
Ji Yuxiao smiled and tried not to look so embarrassed. “Good morning, Fei Fei.”
“Morning,” Lin Fei said indifferently.
“I’ll go wash up first.” Ji Yuxiao nodded slightly.
Lin Fei replied, “Oh.”
Ji Yuxiao pushed the wheelchair and went towards the bathroom.
Lin Luoqing, “????”
They were obviously kissing together but he secretly ran away, leaving Lin Luoqing alone to face the child. Was this appropriate?
Lin Luoqing was so angry that he wanted to drag Ji Yuxiao out of the bathroom.
He looked at Lin Fei and kept smiling.
It… was so embarrassing!
“Fei Fei, you woke up early.”
Lin Fei sat up, his tone casual. “It is already later than usual.”
Lin Luoqing thought, ‘…This seems to be true. Usually when I wake up, Fei Fei is already awake. This is indeed later than usual.’
“It is the Spring Festival. You can sleep more.” Lin Luoqing looked at him with a smile.
Lin Fei lifted the quilt to get out of bed. The moment the quilt was lifted, he found that his pajama pocket showed a red corner. He took it out and found that it was a red envelope.
“Happy New Year,” Lin Luoqing told him. “This year, you must also be happy and healthy.”
Lin Fei looked at the red envelope in his hand. He thought about how in the past, his mother would give him a red envelope and say Happy New Year to him.
This year, his mother was gone but he still had a red envelope.
He looked up at Lin Luoqing and saw Lin Luoqing looking at him gently. Lin Fei slowly smiled.
“Yes,” he replied.
Ji Leyu was the last of the four to get up. He was different from Lin Fei’s restraint after getting the red envelope. He smiled happily the moment he found it in his pocket and sweetly told Lin Luoqing and Ji Yuxiao, “Thank you, Dad.
“You’re welcome.” Lin Luoqing smiled.
Ji Leyu saw the smile on Lin Luoqing’s face, held the red envelope in his hand and suddenly seemed to be back in the past. Every New Year, his mother would give him a red envelope. She would quietly press it under his pillow and say that this was lucky money for the new year.
Ji Leyu didn’t quite understand why there was a new year celebration but he was happy that there was a red envelope. Therefore, he was happy every year.
This year, the mother who gave him the red envelope was replaced by another father. They all did it quietly and softly smiled at him.
Ji Leyu suddenly wanted to act as a baby to him. He reached out his hand and said softly, “Dad, take me to wash my face.”
“Okay.” Lin Luoqing picked him up and carried him to the bathroom.
Ji Leyu looked at himself and Lin Luoqing in the mirror. They were very close. Lin Luoqing put him on a small bench and squeezed toothpaste on his toothbrush.
He remembered what his grandfather had said to him. He said his uncle liked Lin Luoqing the most now and would give him anything.
However, his father loved his mother the most. Then shouldn’t his uncle also love his aunt the most?
Therefore, it was normal for his uncle to give him everything.
In addition, Ji Leyu liked his aunt very much.
He opened his mouth to let Lin Luoqing help him brush his teeth. Ji Yuxiao watched at the door and said to him, “Aren’t you going to brush your teeth by yourself?”
Ji Leyu looked at the white beard around his mouth, rinsed his mouth with a smile and turned back to say to Ji Yuxiao, “I want Dad to help me~”
Ji Yuxiao said with a smile, “Tsk, little baby~”
Ji Leyu hugged Lin Luoqing’s waist and said confidently, “I was originally a baby.”
Lin Fei who wasn’t far away, ‘…How can you be so confident?!’
Lin Fei shook his head and put away the red envelope.
Ji Leyu happily brushed his teeth, washed his face and finally changed his clothes. Then he went downstairs together with Lin Luoqing, Ji Yuxiao and Lin Fei.
On the first day of the new year, the chef aunt specially wrapped dumplings to eat at noon.
Ji Yuxiao didn’t refuse. He ate dumplings with Father Ji and left the Ji family’s old mansion.
Father Ji sent them out. Seeing that Ji Leyu was leaving, he didn’t forget to tell him, “Lele, you must remember to call Grandpa.”
Ji Leyu smiled in a perfunctory manner. “Yes.”
Sitting in the car, Ji Yuxiao looked at his father and the house where he grew up, deeply and quietly.
It wasn’t until the car drove further and further away that he withdrew his gaze and silently hugged Ji Leyu.
From now on, Ji Leyu was the only relative he had in the Ji family.
He looked at the weak and cute child in his arms. Then he lowered his head and kissed Ji Leyu’s cheek, his eyes full of tenderness.
On this day, Ji Yuxiao said goodbye to his father in his heart.
In the future, no matter how cruel and painful the truth, he wouldn’t hesitate to firmly tear open the unknown secrets that his father desperately wanted to hide.
He had already lost his original home, so he had to protect his current home.
He turned to look at Lin Luoqing. Lin Luoqing smiled at him, gentle and beautiful. Ji Yuxiao smiled back.
The sky was clear. This year’s New Year’s Day had rare good weather.
After returning from the Ji house, they had a reunion dinner at home again. They slept together for another night, enjoying this warm and beautiful time.
Ji Leyu was very happy. He couldn’t wait to sleep with them every day. Lin Luoqing had no opinion but Ji Yuxiao, who already drove the car, really couldn’t stand it. After sleeping together for five days, he let the two children go back to the room and sleep by themselves.
“Children can’t always sleep with their parents. You have to be independent and do your own thing, understood?”
Ji Leyu nodded. “Yes.”
Lin Luoqing looked at him in a dumbfounded manner. Then he kissed the two children on the face, which was regarded as making up for it.
Ji Leyu looked happy and stuck to him to continue the kisses. Lin Fei still looked disdainful, as if he was very reluctant—if he hadn’t grabbed Ji Leyu, who had been kissing Lin Luoqing, and left quickly.
Soon, the seven day holiday was over. Lin Luoqing returned to Xingyi, continuing to be busy with his work as the CEO. He was also busy choosing a script for his next job.
He had only been back for two days when good news came from Shi Zheng’s side. He had auditioned for a movie crew and successfully won the role of the fourth male lead. The scenes weren’t much but for Shi Zheng, this type of named role already surprised him. In addition, this was a movie and it was a movie with a good team.
Shi Zheng happily called Lin Luoqing and invited him to dinner.
Lin Luoqing agreed with hesitation.
Shi Zheng was obviously very happy and bought wine specifically. The two of them didn’t go out to eat and ate hot pot at Shi Zheng’s house.
The steam from the hot pot covered Shi Zheng’s eyes, making him talk more when he usually didn’t like to talk much.
“I have to thank Brother Wu for this. Brother Wu heard the news and told my agent. However, my agent is also very good. He specially helped me check the director and screenwriter’s previous works and selection habits.”
Lin Luoqing nodded in agreement. “Yes. It is really thanks to them, but you also have strength Brother Zheng.”
Shi Zheng was a bit embarrassed. “It is also because the director was willing to give me a chance.’
Lin Luoqing saw the look on his face and felt relieved in his heart.
This person had good acting skills and was willing to endure hardships, but no one had been willing to give him a chance. Now he finally got a chance.
Shi Zheng felt even more complicated. He had been longing for this for so many years, only to feel disappointed again and again. Finally, at this age, this chance came. It was a chance for the big screen and it couldn’t just be described as mixed feelings.
“Come, Luoqing. This is a toast to you. Thank you for helping me so much. I am really happy and lucky to meet you.”
Lin Luoqing smiled. He and Shi Zheng touched the wine glass and said softly, “Don’t say that, Brother Zheng. Perhaps your movie will become popular. Then I will earn it. Then you will have to take me to develop in the movie industry.”
Shi Zheng was amused by his words. “You are thinking too much. I am the fourth male lead, not the male protagonist.”
“Yes, there will be.” Lin Luoqing touched glasses with him again.
Shi Zheng looked at the brightness in his eyes and his heart was full of softness. No matter whether it would happen or not, he had to work hard to seize the opportunity well. This way, he could live up to Lin Luoqing’s trust and help.
Lin Luoqing was currently holding the position of CEO but he said that acting was his favorite thing. He hadn’t acted in any movies yet. As long as Shi Zheng climbed fast enough and high enough, he could take Lin Luoqing into the movie industry, protecting him and giving him help and shelter.
Shi Zheng had more expectations for himself on this day. He used to want to act well and make his own name, but now he wanted to work harder. It wasn’t just to have his own name, but he also wanted to make his name known to everyone. It was only in this way that he could give Luoqing the help and shelter he needed.
Lin Luoqing had helped him so much. He wanted to help him a bit in return.
The two of them ate hot pot while talking and laughing. This lasted until it was dark and the hot pot was finished. Xiao Li then came to pick up Lin Luoqing to go home.
Shi Zheng said goodbye to him. “I’m about to start training before filming, so I might not see you in the future. I’ll come to you when I finish filming.”
“Okay.” Lin Luoqing looked at him. “Jiayou, Brother Zheng.”
“Yes.” Shi Zheng smiled.
Lin Luoqing got into the car and walked back.
Good things came in pairs. Within two days, the first version of the trailer for ‘Peaches and Plums Don’t Speak’ was released.
The trailer was beautiful, the editing was bright and the characters were distinct. There was a brisk BGM and it was like a ray of sunshine in winter. The novel fans and netizens couldn’t help looking forward to it after watching it.
[Ahhh our little Peaches and Plums is finally born. It feel so reliable. I am so excited!]
[Meng Tao is cute, really cute. Was Yao Momo so cute? Why didn’t I realize it before? This time, it feels really good.]
[This book fan is ecstatic. There is the same taste as when reading the book. In particular, Meng Tao and Meng Hua’s sibling interaction. I like Meng Hua very much. Brother, jiayou!]
[F*k, the appearance of this crew is really good-looking. I just knew that the male and female protagonists were good-looking. In particular, Meng Hua. The genes of the Meng siblings are too good!]
[At first glance, they are biologically related. They are all beautiful [dog head]].
[It is just me who thinks the color tone of this drama is really pretty? The director is good at filming. Several scenes are dreamy. I am too moved.]
[It isn’t just the color that is good-looking. The people are also good-looking. I can watch this face ten times.]
In the midst of all the positive comments, Lin Luoqing silently forwarded this Weibo post.
After a while, many netizens and book fans who were attracted by the trailer ran to his Weibo to express their likes and expectations.
[Ahh, Brother is so cute. I am dead. I also want a younger brother like Meng Hua.]
[My brother is so handsome. I love it so much. How can my brother be so good-looking?]
[Brother, are you 18? Are you an adult? An adult? Are you still in school?]
[Get out of the way. Sister fans, give way. For girlfriend fans like me, I will directly call out Brother. Brother, look at me, look at me.]
[Then I am different. I am directly confident. Hi, husband~]
For a time, the replies in the Weibo comments area continued to increase. The number of fans also continued to grow, giving Lin Luoqing the illusion that he was going to be popular.
Alas, he didn’t know when he would actually be popular?
Lin Luoqing held his cheeks while thinking longingly.
Ji Leyu sat on the bay window, holding the phone in his hand. The screen showed the phone call that had just hung up. The call came from Father Ji. What he said was nothing more than letting Ji Leyu go to see him, to be careful of Lin Luoqing and Lin Fei and to let him guard what his parents left for him.
Ji Leyu gave a perfunctory ‘hmm’ and irritably hung up the phone.
He wasn’t in a good mood and didn’t have a very good temper. He wished that Father Ji would stand in front of him and let him push off the bay window so that he could never say those upsetting words ever again.
Lin Fei sat in front of him and asked him, “Are you still not going to tell your uncle?”
Ji Leyu shook his head. He would never tell his uncle in his life.
Lin Fei was very worried but didn’t bother to persuade him.
He turned around and went to water the cactus on the bay window.
Ji Leyu leaned back and said with worry, “If he drinks glue, will he not be able to talk any longer?”
Lin Fei, “……”
Lin Fei was speechless. “Just think about it.”
Ji Leyu snorted and rested his chin on his back. “He doesn’t want me to like you yet you still won’t let me do anything.”
Lin Fei said calmly, “He is too old.”
He added, “Besides, he is your grandfather.”
“I don’t need a grandfather.” Ji Leyu leaned against him and said softly. “I just need Dad.”
It didn’t matter if it was his own father or Ji Yuxiao, they were all his fathers.
Lin Fei didn’t speak. He waited until Ji Leyu fell asleep on the bed before finally hesitating to leave his bedroom.
He walked to the door of Ji Yuxiao’s study and hesitated for a moment. Nevertheless, he knocked on the door and walked in.
Ji Yuxiao saw that it was him and said with a smile, “What’s wrong, Baby? Is there something I can do for you?”
Lin Fei nodded. “I wanted to borrow a book from you.”
“What book?” Ji Yuxiao was curious.
“Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales,” Lin Fei said calmly.
Ji Yuxiao was surprised. “Didn’t your uncle buy this for you?”
“He bought it but I can’t find it. Do you have it?”
Ji Yuxiao shook his head. He had long passed the age of reading fairy tales. How could he have such a book?”
“Yes, I’ll buy you a new one now and it will arrive tomorrow. You can read it then, okay?”
Lin Fei thought for a while before asking him with certainty, “Is it the Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales with the Ugly Duckling?”
“Yes.” Ji Yuxiao nodded. “Have you also read the Ugly Duckling?”
Lin Fei hummed and asked, “Uncle, have you read it?”
“Of course, I’ve read it.”
“Then Uncle, do you know that the mother duck doesn’t like the ugly duckling?”
“Really?” Ji Yuxiao had forgotten. “The mother duck didn’t like it either?”
