FV: Chapter 137

After giving Lin Fei a bath, Lin Luoqing went to the next bathroom to help Ji Leyu take a bath. Ji Leyu heard that the two of them had taken a bath secretly without him and pouted for a while, humming in an aggrieved manner.

Lin Luoqing coaxed him for a long time before coaxing him well and making him believe that Lin Luoqing wanted to be alone with both of them for a while.

“Don’t you want to be alone with me for a while?” He asked Ji Leyu.

Ji Leyu stopped the piglet humming and nodded obediently. “I want to.”

“Really?” Lin Luoqing winked at him. “Me too. I also want to be alone with you for a while.”

Ji Leyu didn’t continue pouting. He leaned toward Lin Luoqing with a smile and splashed his body with water.

“Little villain.” Lin Luoqing tapped his forehead. “Dad’s clothes are all wet.”

Ji Leyu smiled, hugged him and acted like a baby.

After the bath, Lin Luoqing’s pajamas were too wet. He went back to his room to change his pajamas and walked toward the bed.

Ji Yuxiao saw that he had changed pajamas before going to sleep and raised an eyebrow. “Why? Do you want to seduce me?”

Lin Luoqing, “……”

Lin Luoqing approached him and leaned closer to his ear. Ji Yuxiao hugged his waist and was about to kiss this person, when he heard Lin Luoqing whispering in his ear, “I’m not seducing you. Your son wet my clothes.”

Ji Yuxiao smiled. “Then you should let him wash your clothes and educate him.”

“Forget it.” Lin Luoqing couldn’t bear it. “He is still just a child.”

This was a real child!

Ji Yuxiao was still smiling. He looked up at Lin Luoqing while hugging him, pressed his lips close to Lin Luoqing’s lips and seduced him. “The son’s debt is paid by the father. He wet your clothes so do you want to wet his father’s clothes as compensation?”

Lin Luoqing, “???”

Lin Luoqing looked at him suspiciously.

Ji Yuxiao leaned close to his ear and asked softly, “Do you want to help me take a bath as well?”

Lin Luoqing, “!!!”

Lin Luoqing looked up in surprise. Ji Yuxiao seemed innocent but ambiguously winked at him, pure yet seductive. Lin Luoqing instantly became distracted. “L-Let’s take a bath.”

Ji Yuxiao smiled lightly. He was about to get out of bed but was hugged by Lin Luoqing.

Ji Yuxiao, “……”

Lin Luoqing smiled. “I’ll carry you in too~ It is the same as Fei Fei and Xiao Yu~”

Ji Yuxiao, “……”

Ji Yuxiao decided to let him be arrogant now. In any case, he would soon cry.

He reached out to touch Lin Luoqing’s forehead and ran a hand all the way down his cheek. Ji Yuxiao’s beautiful face was full of tenderness and his voice was light and soft, like the tail of a phoenix brushing against the tip of his heart. “Okay.”

Lin Luoqing’s heart couldn’t help beating faster. He thought that Ji Yuxiao could really seduce people.

He snorted angrily and stopped looking at the person in his arms. Then he carried Ji Yuxiao into the bathroom.

Not long after, there was a low crying voice from the bathroom. The voice was soft, hazy and intermittently gasped. It was like accidentally glimpsing a corner of spring.

Lin Luoqing was bullied for a long time before he was finally able to calm down.

Ji Yuxiao hugged him and kissed his red eyes. Then he kissed Lin Luoqing’s face before lingering on his lips.

Lin Luoqing leaned against him and enjoyed this person’s tenderness.

Ji Yuxiao saw he wasn’t thinking too much and didn’t move. The water in the bathtub was very warm and it was comfortable for the two people to soak in it.

He hugged Lin Luoqing and while splashing water to help him wash, he also kissed Lin Luoqing.

Lin Luoqing obediently let him kiss and hugged him, clingy and obedient.

It wasn’t until Ji Yuxiao helped him wash up that Lin Luoqing finally left him. Lin Luoqing stood up and got out of the bathtub.

He helped Ji Yuxiao wipe off the water on his body and stretched out his hands. “I’ll carry you back.”

Ji Yuxiao, “……”

Ji Yuxiao really couldn’t accept that as a driver, he had to be driven back by the car he had just driven.

So he said in a very face-saving manner, “I can do it myself.”

Lin Luoqing didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Still, he was afraid that Ji Yuxiao would be embarrassed so he had to go out and help bring the wheelchair in. “Then I’ll wait for you outside.”

Ji Yuxiao nodded and looked at his legs once the other person left. He knew it was time for him to go for a check. He didn’t know if his legs had slightly improved. If not this time, when would it happen?

He also wanted to hug Lin Luoqing to take a bath. He wanted to appear in front of Lin Luoqing, hugging him and running toward him. He wanted to carry Lin Luoqing home slowly in the moonlight after the two of them strolled around outside.

He wanted to do so much, but he couldn’t do anything.

Ji Yuxiao sighed and silently moved himself to his wheelchair.

Lin Luoqing came out of the bathroom. He was blow drying his hair when he heard the sound of Ji Yuxiao’s wheelchair.

He looked at Ji Yuxiao and thought of the hint that Lin Fei wanted to convey to him.

Lin Luoqing had actually vaguely guessed that the relationship between Ji Yuxiao and his father wasn’t very good. He even doubted if Ji Yuling’s death was related to Father Ji, but he quickly dismissed that thought. There was no need. Ji Yuling was Father Ji’s own son and was the most suitable person to inherit the Ji Group. There was no need to let Ji Yuling have an accident.

In addition, his thoughts and sadness when he mentioned Ji Yuling on the night of New Year’s Eve didn’t seem fake.

However, no matter what he guessed or thought, he never expected that Father Ji wouldn’t like Ji Yuxiao.

Why was this?

After all, he was also Father Ji’s son. Just because Ji Yuxiao married him, gave him Xingyi and had given up on the surface?

Lin Luoqing couldn’t guess clearly.

In addition, why would Lin Fei or Ji Leyu know?

Did something happen when they went home together for the Spring Festival?

Did they see it with their own eyes or hear it with their own ears?

Or was it actually that Father Ji didn’t dislike him, but Father Ji didn’t like Ji Yuxiao that much?

Children often had no way to express the real meaning of things. If Father Ji expressed that he didn’t like Ji Yuxiao that much or didn’t care that much about Ji Yuxiao then in Ji Leyu’s eyes, it must be that Father Ji didn’t like his uncle.

What exactly did… Father Ji do?

Ji Yuxiao pushed the wheelchair to Lin Luoqing’s side, took the hair dryer from his hand and helped him dry his hair.

He asked, “What are you thinking?”

Lin Luoqing turned to him, a bit uncomfortable and not knowing how to speak.

How should he say it?

Ji Yuxiao might’ve argued with his father many times and might not love his father that much, but he still showed such a sad look when returning home for the Spring Festival.

Telling him that this time that his father didn’t like him that much and it was better to be wary of him? How painful would Ji Yuxiao feel?

It was too cruel. Lin Luoqing couldn’t say it.

But if he didn’t say it, what if something happened to Ji Yuxiao?

He originally died this year in the novel. Maybe it was because he didn’t watch out for his father, so he was caught off guard and died young. Lin Luoqing couldn’t let such a thing happen this time. He definitely couldn’t let Ji Yuxiao leave him and the children!

Lin Luoqing suddenly made up his mind. Perhaps this matter was cruel and painful, but living was the most important thing. There was hope in life. People could accept other warmth and have new expectations, so Ji Yuxiao had to know.

“Yuxiao, I have to tell you something,” Lin Luoqing said softly. “But don’t feel too uncomfortable, okay?”

Ji Yuxiao wondered, “What’s the matter?”

Lin Luoqing looked at him and tried to organize his words. “Fei Fei didn’t come to you today simply to borrow a book from you.”

He stared into Ji Yuxiao’s eyes and stated it clearly. “He came to remind you. The ugly duckling is you and the mother duck is your father. The mother duck doesn’t like the ugly duckling. Your father… doesn’t like you that much either.”

Ji Yuxiao was stunned.

He stared at Lin Luoqing and the movements of his hands stopped.

Lin Luoqing leaned over and hugged him tightly, voice gentle and warm.

“Xiao Yu and Fei Fei should’ve seen or heard something, so the two of them knew about this. Xiao Yu was afraid you would be sad and didn’t allow Fei Fei to tell you. However, Fei Fei was also afraid that you would be defenseless when encountering some things if you don’t know anything. Therefore, he wanted to hint at you tactfully. It is just that you didn’t think much about it. He also promised Xiao Yu, so he couldn’t say it explicitly.”

“I know Fei Fei better than you so I know that there is no such thing as losing a book. I went to ask him and he didn’t say anything, but he also didn’t refute anything. So…”

Lin Luoqing felt uncomfortable in his heart as he firmly hugged the person in his arms, saying in a difficult tone, “So now you know. It is good to have an idea in your heart so you won’t be hurt by him in the future.”

He stared at Ji Yuxiao. Ji Yuxiao’s eyes were very deep, black and oppressive. They were like black clouds pressing down on the city, depressing and sad.

Lin Luoqing touched his forehead and kissed his face. “Fei Fei and Xiao Yu are still young. It can’t be ruled out that they heard or saw something and misunderstood. In fact, you can talk to your father…”

Before he finished speaking, he was hugged tightly by Ji Yuxiao.

“No need.” Ji Yuxiao’s voice was calm as he spoke. “There is no need for that.”

He actually already had this feeling, starting from the time he pretended to give up on himself and from the time his father asked him for his brother’s shares. He had lived for so long and had never seen his father clearly. It was only after the car accident that his father slowly revealed his true face.

Of course, his father didn’t like him. Otherwise, how could his father not even give him half a year when he gave up on himself?

Why else would his father want to compete with him for his brother’s legacy?

Ji Yuxiao had never understood it before. Why did his father want to fight with him for his brother’s inheritance? Why was he unwilling to let his son leave everything to his other son?

His brother had already made it clear that he was only protecting his wife and child.

So why fight with Ji Yuxiao?

In the end, this inheritance would return to Ji Leyu’s hands and would still belong to Ji Leyu, just as when his brother was alive. So why was his father fighting for it?

Later, he found out more and more things and understood things more clearly.

He just hadn’t expected that his father would let young children like Ji Leyu and Lin Fei realize that he didn’t like Ji Yuxiao.

Ji Yuxiao felt helpless, powerless and ridiculously sad. He remembered Lin Fei asking him, “Do your parents like you?” He had said yes in order to make Lin Fei’s world simple and beautiful.

However, Lin Fei knew it a long time ago. His children knew it for a long time.

He wasn’t liked. His father didn’t like him that much.

How… how did his children find out about this?

Every time, Ji Yuxiao felt that his father had done enough to disappoint and sadden him. Then he would always find that there were things that made him even more disappointed and sad.

What did his father think of their two brothers?

Was he really a father?

Ji Yuxiao suddenly felt that as a son, he was particularly a failure. He had failed if he let his children become aware of this.

Feeling the sadness in his body, Lin Luoqing turned his head sideways and kissed the side of his face.

“It’s okay, you still have us,” he said softly. “Be it me, Fei Fei or Xiao Yu, we all like you. Your brother and your friends as well. You have many people who like you.”

“It isn’t the ugly duckling who is bad, it is the mother duck. You are the most beautiful swan and you look better than other small animals.”

Ji Yuxiao hugged him for a long time. Then he slightly opened the distance and kissed the corner of Lin Luoqing’s lips.

Lin Luoqing immediately hugged him and kissed him on the lips, kissing him persistently.

Ji Yuxiao was amused by this undisciplined kiss.

“I’m fine,” he said softly.

Lin Luoqing didn’t believe it. Ji Yuxiao obviously looked very uncomfortable.

“Really.” Ji Yuxiao nodded. “I actually had this feeling before, so it isn’t unexpected.”

“I just didn’t expect Xiao Yu and Fei Fei to know about this. It is a bit bad that they know my father doesn’t like me.”

“That isn’t your problem. It is your father’s problem.”

Ji Yuxiao hugged him and didn’t speak.

Lin Luoqing leaned into his arms and kissed his chin. He saw that Ji Yuxiao still didn’t speak and kissed him intermittently.

Ji Yuxiao laughed and lowered his head to kiss Lin Luoqing when he was about to kiss again.

“Are you a kissing fish? Aren’t you tired from kissing?”

“I don’t get tired when kissing you.” Lin Luoqing didn’t hesitate.

Ji Yuxiao smiled and hugged him tightly. “Don’t worry, I’m not uncomfortable. I still have you, Xiao Yu and Fei Fei. I have nothing to feel uncomfortable about.”

“Everything will pass. What has passed will become kind memories.”

Sooner or later, it would pass.

Ji Yuxiao kissed Lin Luoqing again and continued to help him blow dry his hair.

The wind outside the window was blowing and the heart inside the window was sad.

The next morning, Lin Luoqing took leave and didn’t go to the company. He went to the hospital with Ji Yuxiao.

It was time for a check-up again. He didn’t know if Ji Yuxiao’s legs were better now.

Wei Junhe sat at the door and accompanied him. After waiting a long time, Ji Yuxiao didn’t come out. Wei Junhe wondered, “Why is it so slow today?”

“Maybe there are more checks?” Lin Luoqing guessed.

Wei Junhe was very anxious. He kept looking toward the door and even took a few steps closer, peeking in.

Lin Luoqing, “……”

“Ah.” Wei Junhe sighed and started to pace in front of Lin Luoqing. “It has been so long. Why isn’t it over yet?”

“I’m really anxious to death.”

He walked back and forth and dangled in front of Lin Luoqing’s eyes.

Lin Luoqing saw it and always felt that he wasn’t waiting for Ji Yuxiao, who was doing a review but Ji Yuxiao, who was a pregnant woman.

If the door opened after a while and Wei Junhe rushed forward and asked, “Is it born? Is it a boy or a girl?”

He really wouldn’t be surprised at all!
