The snow stopped for a week before it started falling again.
Lin Luoqing was very happy to see the snowy scene and asked Ji Leyu with a smile if he still wanted to build snowmen.
Ji Leyu refused. He didn’t want to see the snowmen disappear again. Therefore, he just pulled Lin Luoqing and they had a snowball fight together.
The snow was very heavy. As they were about to go to sleep, Ji Yuxiao asked Lin Luoqing, “Do you have time tomorrow? I will take you to meet other friends of mine.”
“Okay.” Lin Luoqing agreed.
He still remembered the last time in Ji Yuxiao’s study when Ji Yuxiao’s junior shouted to meet him.
“Is it your junior?”
Ji Yuxiao nodded. “I originally wanted to ask you to have a meal together in the new year but there were too many things. I couldn’t take care of it and had to put it off until now.”
“It’s okay.” Lin Luoqing didn’t mind either.
“So what should I wear tomorrow?” He wondered. “It is the first time we are meeting. Do I have to dress better?”
Ji Yuxiao heard this and pinched his face. “You are already good looking enough. If you look too good then something will happen.”
Lin Luoqing laughed. “Okay, then I will dress casually.”
He said this but he still looked through the closet for a while before choosing a black coat.
The sun was good the next day. Lin Luoqing and Ji Yuxiao went out together.
Ji Yuxiao’s friends arrived early. During the time when the two of them weren’t here yet, they discussed in a low voice.
“Brother Xiao actually found time to meet us. It isn’t easy.”
“Yes, I heard that he brought his wife this time?”
“Yes yes. Hey, do you think Sister-in-law chased Brother Xiao first or did Brother Xiao chase Sister-in-law?”
“It must be Brother Xiao chasing Sister-in-law. Based on Brother Xiao’s temper, he won’t care if others chase him.”
“That’s right. However, they got married so quickly. If it wasn’t for Brother Xiao’s sweet look every time he mentioned Sister-in-law, I would think they got married due to an agreement.”
“Alas, the fact that he can marry Brother Xiao at this time shows that Sister-in-law feels true love.”
“What do you mean by that? Even if Brother Xiao’s legs are bad, his face is like this. In addition, there is his talent and value. He can still go out and attract countless fans, okay?”
Everyone laughed as they spoke.
JI Yuxiao came in with Lin Luoqing in this atmosphere.
Seeing the happy atmosphere in the room, Ji Yuxiao asked with a smile, “What’s going on? What is so funny that you are all laughing so happily?”
“Nothing much. Where is Sister-in-law?”
After speaking, everyone couldn’t help looking toward Lin Luoqing.
Lin Luoqing stood behind Ji Yuxiao in a black coat. It was very cold but he didn’t wear a scarf to show his elegance. His white neck was revealed and combined with his face, he seemed as white and flawless as jade.
Everyone couldn’t help being amazed and hurriedly greeted him. “Over here. Brother Xiao, you and Sister-in-law sit here.”
Lin Luoqing also pushed him over.
“Thank you,” he said politely.
“It’s okay.” The person around him introduced himself. “Brother Xiao and I are university classmates. Sister-in-law, you can call me Yang Ji.”
Once he finished speaking, someone else interjected. “Sister-in-law, we met before. That time, I was making a video call with Brother Xiao and you were there. I am his junior, Zhao Cheng.”
Lin Luoqing nodded. “Hello.”
He listened to everyone introduce themselves one by one and greeted them politely. It could be regarded as them meeting each other and they talked very happily.
Once everyone arrived, Yang Ji called the waiter to start ordering.
“Sister-in-law, what do you like to eat?” Yang Ji asked him. “You order first.”
Lin Luoqing was about to give way and let them order first, but Ji Yuxiao was one step ahead of him and directly reported the names of several dishes. Everyone immediately joked.
“Yo, Brother Xiao knows it very well.”
“Listen, our Brother Xiao will actually help someone order.”
“If this was seen by the people in the company who secretly have a crush on Brother Xiao, they would probably cry on the spot.”
Lin Luoqing, “???”
Lin Luoqing silently looked at Ji Yuxiao. ‘Who in your company has a crush on you?’
Ji Yuxiao, “……”
Ji Yuxiao could only sigh. He looked so good and he was worth so much. If he hadn’t injured his legs before, wouldn’t it be very unscientific if there was no one with a crush on him?
Lin Luoqing laughed. Yes, even he felt that Ji Yuxiao’s conditions were too superior, let alone other people.
“Hey hey.” Yang Ji knocked on the table. “Everyone is still here. Why are you starting to flirt and abuse single dogs?”
“This isn’t right, Brother Xiao. You usually hide at home and don’t go out. Why are you abusing dogs as soon as you come out?”
“Brother Xiao, let me ask. Who chased whom between you and Sister-in-law?”
Lin Luoqing was familiar with this and didn’t hesitate to say, “I chased him. I had a crush on him.”
Everyone was amazed. “When did it happen?”
Lin Luoqing replied, “It has been more than ten years, since I was in elementary school.”
Ji Yuxiao smiled. “Are you touched?”
Everyone thought, ‘It is really touching!’
They became interested in an instant and asked curious questions. Lin Luoqing took out his script and replied to them one by one.
By the time the meal was finished, the people at the table were also touched by his beautiful crush.
It didn’t matter if it was true or not. If Lin Luoqing was willing to say so then it was definitely true love!
Everyone drank a few glasses of wine together and ate again before dispersing.
Lin Luoqing drank a bit of wine. Combine this with his good mood, he felt a bit dizzy.
He went out and was pleasantly surprised when he saw it was snowing again. “It is snowing again.”
“Do you like snow?” Ji Yuxiao asked him.
Lin Luoqing shook his head. “I don’t like it.”
“Then why do you look happy?”
“Xiao Yu and Fei Fei like it.” Lin Luoqing smiled. “Children like snow. How fun is it on a snow day for them? It is unlike adults who will only think that the road isn’t easy to walk on snowy days.”
He finished speaking and looked at Ji Yuxiao. “Shall I push you?”
“Get in the car,” Ji Yuxiao said. “It is too cold.”
Lin Luoqing shook his head. “It isn’t cold.”
As he spoke, he went to push Ji Yuxiao.
Ji Yuxiao felt his state wasn’t quite right and asked him, “Are you drunk?”
“No.” Lin Luoqing refused to admit it and pushed him forward, but his direction was obviously wrong. It was only when Ji Yuxiao reminded him that he went back again.
Ji Yuxiao sent a WeChat message to Xiao Li and asked him to come to the parking lot.
After sending it, he looked up at Lin Luoqing. Lin Luoqing was pushing him. He looked very well-behaved but his steps were too cheerful. If he wasn’t pushing a wheelchair, Ji Yuxiao thought he would probably be jumping around.
“Isn’t it cold?” Ji Yuxiao asked him.
“It isn’t cold.” Lin Luoqing looked at him. “Are you cold?”
Ji Yuxiao shook his head.
Lin Luoqing laughed. “Then we aren’t cold.”
He pushed Ji Yuxiao and walked. The snow flew in the sky, fluttering and falling on his shoulders and Ji Yuxiao’s shoulders. The side of the road was white and snowy. Lin Luoqing stepped on the moonlight under his feet and felt like he was walking in a dream.
He was walking when he heard Ji Yuxiao say, “In the future, if someone asks who chased whom between us, say that I chased you, okay?”
“Why?” Lin Luoqing was puzzled.
“Otherwise, you really chased me?” Ji Yuxiao asked with a smile.
“Why not?” Lin Luoqing was straightforward. “You are the one I chased.”
“Did you chase me?”
“I had a crush on you for so many years!”
“Did you have a crush on me?”
“Of course.” Lin Luoqing let go of his hand and walked in front of him.
He looked at him, eyes clear and transparent. “I’ve had a crush on you for over ten years, don’t you know?”
He said it with confidence and sincerity. Suddenly, Ji Yuxiao didn’t know how to refute it.
Lin Luoqing’s mood was a bit fluttering and he felt very light. He stared at the person in front of him and slowly bent down, kissing him on the lips. Ji Yuxiao was stunned. He was about to kiss back but Lin Luoqing had already followed the trend and lay on his knees, obedient like a small animal.
“I am the one who chased you,” he muttered. “I’ve had a crush on you for so many years. Why isn’t it considered chasing?”
Ji Yuxiao was confused by these words. He recalled the scene where Lin Luoqing first said he had a crush on Ji Yuxiao. It should’ve been a lie and shouldn’t be true.
“Really?” He asked Lin Luoqing.
Lin Luoqing lay on his lap and nodded, obedient like a spoiled cat.
Ji Yuxiao touched his head, not clear if he was awake or confused right now. Ji Yuxiao also wasn’t clear whether he was sober or confused himself. He only knew one thing. “If you really had a crush on me for so long then I will definitely be distressed.”
His voice was soft. When the wind blew, it disappeared into the air along with the white snow.
A lie told a hundred times became the truth. Lin Luoqing was drunk and couldn’t tell that the lie he once told was just a lie, not the truth. Or perhaps he actually hoped that this lie was the truth.
It was just like Ji Yuxiao. He was also drunk and couldn’t tell whether the current Lin Luoqing was telling a lie or the truth. However, he hoped that Lin Luoqing was telling a lie or it would be too unbearable.
He gently caressed Lin Luoqing’s cheek and kissed his cheek under the moonlight and the falling snow.
Lin Luoqing woke up the next morning and remembered that he should’ve accompanied Ji Yuxiao to meet his friends last night. Later, he couldn’t remember anything clearly from the time they finished eating.
“How did we get back?” He asked Ji Yuxiao.
“Of course, Xiao Li drove us back.”
“Why don’t I have an impression of it?” Lin Luoqing knocked on his head. “Was I drunk?”
“Probably.” Ji Yuxiao looked at him. “If we hadn’t taken a car at night, you would’ve pushed me back. the key thing is that you headed in the opposite direction.”
Lin Luoqing smiled awkwardly and helped himself out. “The earth is round and we can always get back.”
“You also had to confess to me, saying you have a secret crush on me. You secretly liked me for over ten years and your love is unwavering.”
Lin Luoqing, “……”
Lin Luoqing nodded strongly. “See? I tell the truth after drinking. My love for you is unwavering!”
Ji Yuxiao chuckled. “Really? Then tell me, which elementary school was my elementary school?”
Lin Luoqing, “……”
“I still have something to do at the company. I will go to the company first.” Lin Luoqing finished speaking and immediately jumped off the bed.
Ji Yuxiao laughed. Just this and he said he had a crush on Ji Yuxiao?
However, now he knew. His Qingqing didn’t have a crush on him and there naturally weren’t ten years of deep love. It was very good. Ji Yuxiao was very happy. He didn’t need Lin Luoqing to love him so affectionately and deeply. Loving too deeply while being alone was too painful. He didn’t want Lin Luoqing to suffer. He only hoped that Lin Luoqing was happy before meeting him and was happier after meeting him.
This was fine.
In the new year, it snowed several times intermittently.
Once the snow was almost over, Director Li’s movie finally started the auditions while Lin Fei and Ji Leyu were going back to school after the holiday.
“I will audition for Director Li’s new movie the day after tomorrow. I might have to go out for a day so I will tell you in advance. But I should be back in the evening,” Lin Luoqing sat on the bed and told Ji Yuxiao.
“Okay.” Ji Yuxiao agreed. “It just so happens that I also have something to tell you. It is about Fei Fei and Xiao Yu.”
“What?” Lin Luoqing was puzzled.
“I want Xiao Yu and Fei Fei to start self-defense training from the day after tomorrow. If you have no opinion, I will talk to them about this tomorrow.”
Lin Luoqing was confused. ‘Huh?’
“Yes, I originally planned to let Xiao Yu start training when he was in first grade. Then first grade came too suddenly last semester. He suddenly skipped a grade and this itself was stressful. I was afraid that adding something else would make him feel more tired, so I didn’t let him learn it. Now it is a new semester and he should learn. Since he wants to learn it, Fei Fei has to learn it for sure. Otherwise, won’t it be favoring one over the other?”
Lin Luoqing was surprised when he heard this. “They are so young.”
“Boys love to fight. They will fight until they grow. It is better to learn early and dominate early,” the former school tyrant Ji Yuxiao said.
Lin Luoqing, “……”
He finally understood why the adult Ji Leyu was so good at fighting the moment he appeared and was even almost able to knock down the male protagonist with his protagonist’s halo. My god, it turned out to be because of him, this school tyrant father!
Then Lin Luoqing thought about it. Based on Ji Leyu’s personality, if he couldn’t fight then what if he was caught while doing something bad? He would just end up beaten.
Then it was better to let him learn. Hitting people was controllable while being beaten was uncontrollable.
“Okay.” Lin Luoqing had no objections.
“Then I’ll talk to them tomorrow,” Ji Yuxiao said. “Don’t be too soft-hearted if Xiao Yu complains a lot.”
Lin Luoqing, “……”
“I will try my best.”
“By the way, who are you going to find to teach them?” Lin Luoqing was curious. “Do all wealthy young masters learn this from childhood?”
“My brother learned it and he had me learn it as well. Naturally, I have to let his son learn.”
I understand, the source is still the eldest brother.
It is worthy of being a big brother. Even though you are gone, your spirit will always be passed on!
“As for the candidate to teach them, you have already met him. It is Luo Jia.”
Lin Luoqing thought, ‘Eh???’
“Isn’t he a driver?”
“So his serious profession is… a martial arts teacher?”
“That is also part-time.”
Lin Luoqing, “???”
Ji Yuxiao smiled. “Luo Jia used to be the king of soldiers. He was injured and retired. I just happened to encounter this situation so I had him come over to help me.”
He explained, “Xiao Yu didn’t want me to send him to school because he was afraid I wouldn’t feel well. However, I was worried he would be in danger if I let others send him. Xiao Li can protect him but Xiao Li is needed more on my side. At that time, Luo Jia was forced to retire and recuperate, so I had him come.”
Lin Luoqing thought, ‘…How many unknown surprises do you still have and how many capable people are around you?’
Lin Luoqing applauded silently. ‘It is worthy of you, the villain’s adoptive father!’
Ji Leyu and Lin Fei were very excited when they heard about this the next day. Ji Yuxiao was surprised by this.
Ji Leyu thought that he would be able to better protect his uncle and aunt in the future, while Lin Fei thought he could better protect himself in the future.
Oh, and his clingy uncle, innocent uncle and younger brother with no sense of morality and the legal system. Just Ji Leyu alone, he didn’t know how much trouble Ji Leyu would provoke in the future.
Lin Fei glanced at Ji Leyu, thinking that he should really study hard or Ji Leyu would be caught and beaten one day.
Ji Yuxiao didn’t expect for both of them to be willing and for no one to complain. In particular, Ji Leyu didn’t complain. Ji Yuxiao secretly thought, ‘He is worthy of being my son. He has my demeanor from back then.’
“Okay, it is decided. You will study with Uncle Luo starting tomorrow.”
“Yes,” Ji Leyu replied.
Lin Fei gave a faint hum.
At night, Ji Leyu lay on Lin Fei’s bed and looked forward to it. Lin Fei said it was okay to fight. As long as he learned well so that no one could beat him, he would be able to take revenge on anyone.
At that time, he would see something and fight. He would hit the other person until they cried and no longer dared to do anything. It was very cool when thinking about it.
Ji Leyu thought beautifully and fell asleep while holding Lin Fei.
Early the next morning, Lin Luoqing got up early and rushed to the airport to prepare to audition for his new role.
Lin Fei and Ji Leyu knew that he was busy with work. They got into the car obediently and asked Luo Jia to send them to school.
The moment Ji Leyu saw Luo Jia, he couldn’t help staring and asked with a curious look, “Uncle, will you be our martial arts teacher in the future?”
“Almost.” Luo Jia also felt helpless.
Why did Ji Yuxiao look for him to train two children? He had only trained recruits. How could he train such small children? But in the end, who could refuse the temptation of money?
Therefore, Luo Jia pinched Ji Leyu’s little face. “Study hard. Uncle will try not to make you cry.”
Ji Leyu, “……”
Uncle Luo Jia was really confident.
He was thinking about this all day. After school in the afternoon, he couldn’t wait to drag Lin Fei outside the classroom so he could quickly learn to beat people up.
As a result, the moment he reached the school gate, Ji Leyu was stopped by someone before he could react.
The man didn’t look at him. His eyes were focused on Lin Fei as he said in surprise, “Fei Fei? You are Lin Fei, right?”
His face was indescribably excited as he stared into Lin Fei’s eyes with excitement. “Fei Fei, do you know me? I am your father.”
