FV: Chapter 152
Ji Yuxiao was reading at home. It was rare for him to finish the work on hand and to have some leisure time. His wife and children hadn’t returned, so he planned to pick up the books he hadn’t read before and read them.
He was reading it when he heard Aunt Zhang report to him, “Sir, your father is here.”
At the beginning, when Ji Yuxiao was first injured, Father Ji had a big fight with him in this house. From then on, Father Ji had to inform Aunt Zhang if he wanted to enter Ji Yuxiao’s house again and Ji Yuxiao had to allow him to come in.
Therefore, once Aunt Zhang finished speaking, she naturally asked, “Do you want to let him come in?”
Ji Yuxiao was a bit surprised. What was his father doing at this time?
Ever since he moved out after graduating from college, his father had rarely come to his house. In addition, there was that argument after the car accident and he hadn’t been here once in the past six months. What happened?
“Let him in,” Ji Yuxiao replied.
He was a bit curious. His father had come to visit at this time. It shouldn’t be to show his father’s kindness and filial piety, right?
Ji Yuxiao pushed the wheelchair out of the study. He entered the elevator and went to the living room on the first floor.
Father Ji rushed over angrily but was stopped at the iron gate and his face turned blue.
Aunt Zhang saw it and felt he was a bit scary. She opened the door for him in fear and was glared at by Father Ji. She just complained in her heart, ‘What are you glaring at me for? If you hadn’t argued so fiercely before and said you would never come here again, could Mr Ji give me such an order?’
She took Ji Yuxiao’s money and had to listen to Ji Yuxiao. After all, Ji Yuxiao gave so much. Where else could she find such a generous employer?
Aunt Zhang silently closed the door and walked in with Father Ji.
Father Ji walked in quickly. The moment he entered through the door, he saw his son coming out of the elevator.
He was stunned for a moment. It was only at this time that he found that Ji Yuxiao had installed an elevator in his home.
That’s right. With his current appearance, it was naturally most convenient to have an elevator.
He thought of this and actually remembered that whenever Ji Yuxiao returned to the old house, Lin Luoqing would have to carry him up and down.
His son was such a proud person. Now he couldn’t even go up and down the stairs freely and he must feel very sad.
For the first time, Father Ji felt that he was neglecting Ji Yuxiao.
The accident happened too suddenly and he was too shocked at the time. After he recovered, he was busy dealing with Ji Yuling’s affairs. Once Ji Yuling’s affairs were almost handled, Ji Yuling’s will suddenly appeared. He wanted Ji Yuling’s shares but Ji Yuxiao refused to give him. Combined with his self-defeated appearance and Father Ji was upset. The frequency of their arguments increased and in the end, he even forgot about such a small thing.
Father Ji was rarely ashamed and he couldn’t help feeling a bit of paternal love. He asked with concern, “Have you been getting better recently?”
Ji Yuxiao was asked this question by him and thought Father Ji was here to find out about his physical condition.
Then after thinking about it, he knew that the only people who knew his legs were getting better were Lin Luoqing, Wei Junhe and Xiao Li. These three people definitely wouldn’t tell anyone about this matter and it stood to reason that his father shouldn’t know.
Then why was he asking this?
Obviously, Ji Yuxiao no longer believed that his father cared about him. Finally, he decided that this sentence should be out of politeness.
It should be said casually.
“I’m fine. It’s good if I can’t die but I can’t live well,” he answered with a sarcastic air. “What are you doing here?”
Father Ji heard this tone and his long-lost fatherly love stood on a precarious cliff again.
Couldn’t this person talk properly?
“I came to see you,” he restrained his temper and said gently.
However, Ji Yuxiao was completely unappreciative. “Then you have seen me. You can go.”
Father Ji, “???”
“That is how you talk to your father?”
“How else?” Ji Yuxiao said lazily. “Do you still want to stay and eat? Aunt Zhang has already cooked and it is only enough for four people. There is no extra amount.”
Father Ji, “……”
Father Ji instantly didn’t feel guilty at all.
No wonder why he didn’t remember to install an elevator at home. Just from Ji Yuxiao’s tone and his words, it was normal that he couldn’t remember!
“Xiao Xiao, can’t you talk to me properly?”
Ji Yuxiao sneered. “You are saying this. Then why don’t you also try injuring your two legs and see if you can talk well?”
Father Ji, “……”
The air instantly froze.
At this moment, Lin Luoqing, Ji Leyu and Lin Fei pushed open the door and entered the house with a smile.
As a result, they had just entered the house when he saw Father Ji standing with his back to them.
Lin Luoqing thought, ‘…Oh my god, the chaser has chased everyone to the house. He is really determined to have Xiao Yu go back.’
Father Ji heard the movement. He looked back and saw Ji Leyu standing beside Lin Luoqing.
He immediately made a loving expression. “Lele is back.”
Ji Leyu nodded obediently while thinking, ‘Why did he come? He is so annoying.’
“Grandpa,” he called out sweetly.
Father Ji walked over to him, picked him up and said with a smile, “Grandpa hasn’t seen you in a long time. I miss you so much.”
Ji Leyu said in a perfunctory manner, “I miss Grandpa too.”
Lin Fei, “……”
Lin Fei was too lazy to complain about this hypocritical brother in his heart. He silently lowered his head to change his shoes.
Father Ji heard him say this and was even more certain that Ji Leyu had feelings for him. It was just that Ji Leyu was always stopped by Ji Yuxiao and Lin Luoqing, so Ji Leyu couldn’t return to his side.
He kissed Ji Leyu and said to him, “Then why didn’t Lele come to see Grandpa? Grandpa specially asked someone to pick you up today.”
Ji Yuxiao, “!!!”
Ji Yuxiao finally knew why his father came here today.
Okay, it seemed he couldn’t pick up Ji Leyu so he directly came here to steal him?
Really worthy of his father!
“Xiao Yu, come down,” Ji Yuxiao said warmly. “Go back to your room with your brother to do your homework.”
Then he looked at Lin Fei. “I’ll have your dad call you when the meal is ready. Watch your brother and ask him to answer more questions.”
“Okay,” Lin Fei agreed.
Ji Leyu also struggled in Father Ji’s arms. “Grandpa, let me down. I’m going to do my homework.”
“No hurry, no hurry,” Father Ji said with a smile. “Grandpa came here today to pick you up. You can go to Grandpa’s to accompany Grandpa for a few days. Can’t you do your homework at my place?”
“What are you saying?” Ji Yuxiao’s voice was cold. “Did I agree?”
“If I want to be with my grandson, do I need the consent of you, his uncle?” Father Ji instantly frowned.
He looked at Ji Yuxiao. “I know you like Lele but I like him as well. When your brother was still alive, he would bring Lele back to accompany me. Now that your brother is gone, you took Lele but you don’t let him see his grandfather. Do you want to drive a wedge between us?”
Lin Luoqing, “……”
Saying this now, he really wanted to provoke the direct relationship between Ji Yuxiao and Ji Leyu!
Lin Luoqing was about to speak when he heard Ji Yuxiao angrily ask, “What qualifications do you have to mention my brother?”
“Of course, I’m qualified!” Father Ji wasn’t to be outdone. “He was my son. Why am I not qualified to mention him?!”
Ji Yuxiao couldn’t wait to rush up and grab him by the collar to ask him, ‘Your son? Do you really take him for a son?’
If you really treat him as a son—
Why let him die in vain and hastily catch a random driver?
At first, he thought his father was confused and really regarded it as an accident. Later, he found out that his father wasn’t confused. He was smart, so smart that he was afraid Ji Yuxiao would wake up and investigate it. Therefore, he hurriedly sent the driver to prison. The driver couldn’t bear the condemnation of his conscience in prison and committed suicide while the prison guards weren’t paying attention.
He had done so much to cover up the real murderer. Was he afraid that Ji Yuxiao would find out about the real murderer and also afraid that the driver would mention the real murderer?
Just like this, he still had the shamelessness to mention Ji Yuling?
He really wasn’t afraid of the sadness in Ji Leyu’s heart after hearing about it?
Seeing him like this, Lin Luoqing was afraid he would feel uncomfortable and hurriedly said, “Dad, what are you saying? What do you mean by driving a wedge between the two of you? Didn’t Yuxiao bring Xiao Yu back to see you during the new year? We also especially accompanied you to eat dumplings. If you say this now and it enters the child’s ears, it will cause the child to misunderstand. Will you be satisfied if Yuxiao and Xiao Yu aren’t close?”
“What room do you have to talk here?” Father Ji was dissatisfied. “Don’t provoke the relationship between me and Lele!”
“I’m not. I’m just asking what you meant. Xiao Yu, you know that your father loves you the most, right?”
Ji Leyu nodded quickly. He naturally knew that his uncle was the one who loved him the most in the world. Thinking of this and thinking of what Ji Yuxiao just said and the tone of his words, he thought Ji Yuxiao must be angry and his heart instantly ached. He didn’t want Ji Yuxiao to be angry, especially if it was about his father. Ji Yuxiao would not only be angry but also uncomfortable.
Why did his grandfather, this nasty ghost, come to their house?
He struggled in a hurry, twisting subconsciously during the struggle. He directly kicked Father Ji in the stomach, wishing to kick him out of the house so that he could never make Ji Yuxiao angry again.
Father Ji was caught off guard by this. He let go and went to cover his stomach.
Lin Luoqing quickly caught Ji Leyu. Ji Leyu struggled to come out of Lin Luoqing’s arms as if he hadn’t expected to hurt his grandfather. He said anxiously, “Grandpa, are you okay? I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it. I just wanted to come down.”
He was in a hurry and trampled on Father Ji’s foot again.
Father Ji was dumbfounded for a while but couldn’t say anything to him. He could only say, “It’s okay, it’s okay. Grandpa is fine. Lele, you don’t have to worry.”
Ji Leyu frowned, looking aggrieved and pitiful. “I’m sorry, I’m not good.”
“It’s okay.” Father Ji rubbed his stomach. “Grandpa doesn’t blame you. Grandpa likes you. Are you willing to go back with Grandpa?”
Ji Leyu shook his head. “I’m too careless. Grandpa, you are already sick. If I hurt you again, Grandpa will be even more uncomfortable.”
Lin Fei saw that he had finished speaking and said to him, “Let’s go.”
Ji Leyu turned around and was about to leave with him. Father Ji stretched out a hand to grab him back, but Lin Fei was one step faster and instantly pulled Ji Leyu behind him.
Lin Luoqing also grabbed Father Ji’s hand and said with a smile, “Dad, you see how sensible and filial Xiao Yu is. As elders, we should give our children a chance to be filial.”
Lin Fei saw that Lin Luoqing had grabbed this person so he wasted no more time. He pulled Ji Leyu and walked toward the elevator.
Father Ji wanted to chase but was blocked by Lin Luoqing. He cried out angrily, “Go away. Who allowed you to call me Dad.”
Lin Fei instinctively stopped and looked back.
Lin Luoqing smiled and didn’t refute it. He just followed the other person’s words. “Then Uncle, don’t be angry. You already hurt a lot. Look, half your body has entered the soil. If you become so angry then won’t you directly bury yourself in the ground? Wouldn’t that be bad?”
Father Ji, “???!!!”
Father Ji glared at him angrily. “How dare you talk to me like that?”
He turned to look at Ji Yuxiao. “This is the male wife you married, a good wife!”
“He is really good,” Ji Yuxiao said sincerely. “Do you think he is bad? Then reflect on yourself. Why do you think he is bad when I think he is good? Are you targeting me?”
Father Ji, “……”
Father Ji was too lazy to talk nonsense with him. “I won’t say anything else. Do what you like. Just give Lele to me.”
“You just asked. Xiao Yu doesn’t want to go back with you.”
“That is because he cares about me and understands me.”
“He still doesn’t want to go back with you.”
“Are you determined not to let me be with Lele?”
“That’s right,” Ji Yuxiao answered coldly. “My brother left a will saying that I will take care of Xiao Yu, so I will take care of him. You aren’t qualified for this.”
Father Ji looked at his son for a long time before finally nodding. “Okay, Ji Yuxiao. You are good.”
He finished speaking and turned to walk out the door.
Ji Leyu entered Lin Fei’s room and went straight to the bay window. He looked at Father Ji’s car parked outside and said regretfully, “It is a pity that I have already come up, or I would’ve cut his car tire.”
Lin Fei, “……”
Lin Fei originally thought that since Ji Leyu’s parents died in a car accident he would have some shadows toward things like car accidents and deliberately avoid causing them. It turned out this wasn’t the case at all.
“Don’t touch the car,” he said. “If you don’t pay attention, something really will happen.”
“Is that bad?” Ji Leyu’s amber eyes were full of transparent innocence. “If something happens, he will never be able to make my uncle angry again.”
Lin Fei patted his head and persuaded him. “A crime doesn’t lead to death.”
“What do you mean?” Ji Leyu didn’t understand.
“He did something wrong but it isn’t to the point where he needs to die.”
“How do you know this phrase?” Ji Leyu was puzzled. “They didn’t teach it in language class.
Lin Fei, “……”
“It was on that TV show two days ago, the one you asked me to watch with you. A person in it said it.”
He sighed helplessly. “Even if you don’t read, you should pay more attention when watching TV.”
Why was he so stupid?
Ji Leyu, “……”
Ji Leyu was absolutely dumbfounded. Who would look up the meaning of words or phrases they didn’t understand while watching TV?
If you learn less then will you die!
He turned his head angrily and saw Father Ji walking out the door into the courtyard.
Ji Leyu snorted reluctantly. “Just letting him go is too cheap for him.”
“Then don’t let him go,” Lin Fei stated.
Ji Leyu was puzzled. Then he saw Lin Fei turn around and take a slingshot out of his cabinet.
He walked to the bay window and opened the window. He aimed at the back of Father Ji’s head, pulled the slingshot and fired fiercely.
Ji Leyu, “!!!”
Father Ji was walking out angrily when he suddenly felt pain from the back of his head. He quickly turned around but didn’t see anything.
He looked down but couldn’t find anything that might’ve hit the back of his head.
It was really strange. Father Ji became even angrier and quickened his pace to leave.
Ji Leyu silently poked out his head and watched Father Ji leave. He couldn’t help laughing.
He looked at Lin Fei sitting beside him. “You still have this side.”
“Yes,” Lin Fei answered calmly.
“Don’t worry, I’ll help you keep it a secret.” Ji Leyu patted his small chest.
Lin Fei didn’t care. “Whatever.”
“Aren’t you afraid of being known by Dad or Father?”
I didn’t even hide. Do I look scared?
“I’m not a good child,” Lin Fei said calmly. “You are the only one who likes to pretend to be well-behaved.”
Ji Leyu, “……”
Yes, he liked to pretend to behave.
However, he hadn’t expected Lin Fei to do this.
“Then next time when I do something bad, I will call you too.”
Lin Fei glanced at him in disdain. Then he got up from the bay window where he was sitting and walked toward his desk.
“Why did you look at me like that again?” Ji Leyu was dissatisfied. “Can you not dislike me so much? I am your dearest brother.”
Lin Fei glanced back and saw Ji Leyu pouting and looking aggrieved, so he gave a rare smile.
He didn’t say anything but turned his eyes away. His eyes gradually cooled down. This was already the third time. It was three times that he and Lin Luoqing had seen Ji Zhenhong while together and Ji Zhenhong dismissed Lin Luoqing.
Especially today, he told Lin Luoqing to get out of the way and that Lin Luoqing didn’t deserve to call him Dad.
Lin Fei had just started calling Lin Luoqing ‘Dad’ and he was very sensitive to this word. Therefore, he didn’t like Ji Zhenhong’s words.
He had always been indifferent to his own affairs. Due to this, he rarely got angry and didn’t like to do anything.
He didn’t care anyway.
However, Lin Luoqing was different. Lin Luoqing was pure and childish and he would cry. Lin Fei didn’t want anyone to treat Lin Luoqing badly.
Otherwise, it wouldn’t be good if he cried again.
Lin Fei wanted to protect him and naturally couldn’t let Ji Zhenhong go.
However, Ji Zhenhong didn’t make a move against Lin Luoqing and just said some words to him. Lin Fei didn’t want to be too ruthless, so he only hit Ji Zhenhong with a slingshot.
In this way, it was fair.
Lin Fei calmly took out a book and read it quietly with an expressionless face.
