FV: Chapter 153

Lin Luoqing watched Father Ji leave before asking Ji Yuxiao, “Why did he come to find you?”

“What else can it be? He naturally wants to compete with me for Xiao Yu.”

Lin Luoqing didn’t understand. “Why is he so stubborn and why does he want to fight with you? Your brother’s will states that Xiao Yu will be handed over to you to raise. He isn’t Xiao Yu’s father, he is just the grandfather. How can he fight?”

Chen Ming wanted to fight but he occupied the position of a father. What was Father Ji? Both grandfather and uncle weren’t direct relatives.

“It is because he doesn’t want Xiao Yu, he wants my brother’s shares,” Ji Yuxiao said calmly.

“Doesn’t he have them himself?”

Ji Yuxiao saw his puzzled expression and explained in a warm voice, “My mother left her shares to my brother and me when she died. Then my brother became an adult and my father gave him some of my father’s shares. After I became an adult, my father also gave me some shares. Over the years, my brother has successively obtained some shares from other people, so his number of shares is only a bit lower than my father’s shares.”

“In this way, if his shares are added to my original shares then I will surpass my father and become the person with the largest number of shares in the Ji Group. Then I can change the Ji Group’s chairman.”

Lin Luoqing understood. “He is afraid you will seize power, so he wants to take your brother’s shares. It is just like the emperors of ancient times. The throne will always be passed onto their sons but as long as they aren’t dead, they hope that the power will be kept in their hands.”

Ji Yuxiao didn’t speak. He used to think this, but now it seemed like it might be much more than that.

He was silent for a moment before continuing, “So what he wants isn’t Xiao Yu. He just wants to exchange Xiao Yu with me. He knows I won’t go to court with him and he doesn’t want to go to court with me either. He just wants Xiao Yu to be willing to go to him and stay with him. He knows that I won’t argue with Xiao Yu or watch him cry against his wishes. Once Xiao Yu chooses him, if I want Xiao Yu to come back and my father to let go then I can only give him the shares. Between Xiao Yu and the shares, I will definitely choose Xiao Yu. This is his plan.”

Two adults were fighting for a child. The one who loved the child more would let go first when the child cried. If the child stood by his side then it was naturally fine.

But if the child was on the other side and he couldn’t let the child take the initiative to come over, he could only passively meet the other person’s conditions to make this person exit the field.

Fortunately, Ji Leyu had always been firm about this type of thing and had always chosen him.

Lin Luoqing couldn’t accept it. “Xiao Yu is still his grandson.”

‘So what?’ Ji Yuxiao thought. ‘He didn’t care about his own son. Would he care about his grandson?’

All he cared about was himself.

“Let’s not talk about him. Rest for a while and then get ready to eat.”

Lin Luoqing nodded. Then he remembered something and asked, “I have something I want to consult with you about.”

“What is it?”

“Just… what is the adoption process? What do I need to prepare?” Lin Luoqing looked at him and blinked. “Isn’t Fei Fei calling me Dad now? I want to go through the adoption procedure so we can be a real family of four.”

Ji Yuxiao, “……”

Ji Yuxiao looked at him with some doubt. “Didn’t you read my household registration book carefully when we received the certificate?”

Lin Luoqing shook his head. They weren’t familiar with each other at the time, so how could he do such an embarrassing thing?

Ji Yuxiao sighed. “I didn’t adopt Xiao Yu. Xiao Yu is still on the same household registration book as my brother and sister-in-law.”

Lin Luoqing, “????”

“You didn’t adopt Xiao Yu?”

Ji Yuxiao nodded. “I am already his adoptive father and I live with him day and night. In the future, I will occupy more and more places in his life and my weight will become heavier and heavier. I hope that he can always remember that I’m not his biological father. His biological parents are called Ji Yuling and Cheng Wei. They love him very much, so I don’t want to deprive them of the last and only place where they can be together.”

“They are the real family. He is the child of my brother and my sister-in-law, so he should be in the same household registration book as them. Of course, I love him and will always love him, but I also hope that he can always love his biological parents and have a world with his biological parents.”

This was even if his parents were dead.

This was even though they had a canceled status in the household registration book.

Lin Luoqing listened quietly, not knowing what to say for a moment.

At this moment, he suddenly felt that Ji Yuxiao might be the rarest and gentlest person in the world.

No wonder why his brother was so relieved to hand over his children and inheritance to him.

In Ji Yuling’s heart, Ji Yuxiao should be so gentle and romantic, reliable and innocent. This was why he trusted everything to his younger brother with confidence.

He must be very sad that he had such a younger brother.

“I see,” Lin Luoqing said softly.

He originally wanted Lin Fei to be in the same household registration book as him. Now that he thought about it, he should leave it to Lin Luoxi.

In Lin Luoxi’s short and lonely life, only Lin Fei was her greatest comfort and joy. She had loved so many people but only Lin Fei responded to her with the same feelings.

Lin Fei should also have a world with her and should remember his mother who was pregnant with him alone and raised him with great strength.

In any case, he was already living with Lin Fei. What did it matter if they were in the same household registration book?

They were already a family and these virtual things weren’t so important.

Lin Luoqing smiled and kissed Ji Yuxiao’s face, saying with a smile, “Thank you.”

“Why are you thanking me?” Ji Yuxiao didn’t quite understand. “If you want to adopt Fei Fei, I will ask the assistant to help you check the adoption procedures and see how to handle it.”

“No thanks.” Lin Luoqing’s voice was cheerful. “I think you are right. I also plan to let Fei Fei and his mother have a small world of their own.”

“Thank you for your gentleness and romance. It is because of this that you make me feel I also want to be a gentle and romantic person.”

Ji Yuxiao chuckled. “You are originally such a person.”

Lin Luoqing’s eyes curved. He looked at Ji Yuxiao, his voice soft and gentle with a hint of sweetness. “That must be the charm of my male god. I am like my male god.”

Ji Yuxiao hugged his waist and pulled Lin Luoqing onto his lap. “You are provoking me again.”

“This is called provoking?” Lin Luoqing blinked. He reached out his hand and lightly touched this person’s chin. “Then what is this called?”

Ji Yuxiao, “……”

Ji Yuxiao felt that he needed to clean up this person.

“Wait for how I will clean you up tonight.”

“What are you thinking about?” Lin Luoqing hugged his neck. “Tonight, our family of four will sleep together. I don’t believe you will dare to do anything in front of Xiao Yu and Fei Fei.”

Ji Yuxiao, “……”

Ji Yuxiao thought for a moment but couldn’t find any way to refute it. He kissed Lin Luoqing directly, blocking his mouth. This way, he couldn’t say any more bad words.

Lin Luoqing smiled and kissed him, thinking it was okay. His husband didn’t seem to be in a bad mood because of the scumbag Father Ji’s arrival.

It was good.

He didn’t want Ji Yuxiao to be uncomfortable any longer.

Once Aunt Zhang finished cooking, Lin Luoqing went upstairs to call Lin Fei and Ji Leyu down to eat.

Ji Leyu looked at Ji Yuxiao and saw that he was the same as usual, so he was relieved.

He comforted Ji Yuxiao. “Dad, don’t worry. I won’t go to Grandpa’s place. I want to stay with you and be together forever.”

Once he finished speaking, he remembered something and said, “Father.”

Ji Yuxiao smiled and grabbed some food for him, saying softly, “Okay.”

“I don’t like Grandpa, I like you,” Ji Leyu continued to express his heartfelt feelings.

Ji Yuxiao only thought that he deliberately said this to make himself happy and didn’t take it seriously. He said with a smile, “Okay, I get it.”

‘Then you still don’t know,’ Lin Luoqing saw his casual expression and thought in his heart. ‘Your son really doesn’t like your father. He only likes you.’

Your father is full of thoughts of ‘love the house and its crow (love everyone)’. Now the crow dares to peck at the roof of the house and it is time to be kicked off the house.

Ah, what happiness is this, my gentle and romantic husband who knows nothing.

Lin Luoqing moved his chopsticks to give some food to Ji Yuxiao. “You also eat.”

Ji Yuxiao always felt that his tone wasn’t quite right. He stared for a long time before Lin Luoqing blinked innocently.

Ji Leyu watched while waiting. He wondered in his heart, ‘Is this the winking mentioned on TV?’

His dad never forgot to wink at his father during meals. It was really sweet.

The rice in his bowl became even sweeter.

After dinner, Lin Luoqing went to the study and turned on the computer to read the new scripts that Wu Xinyuan sent him.

Director Li still hadn’t replied to him. It wasn’t only to him but also to Su Tong.

Wu Xinyuan had inquired with someone and found that both of them were stuck because of popularity.

Lin Luoqing’s popularity was too low. He had performed well in the audition and satisfied the direction the most among all those who auditioned. The problem was that he didn’t have any traffic that could be monetized now. Therefore, the director was hesitant. He didn’t directly veto him but also didn’t dare to decide on him.

Su Tong was the opposite of him. He was too popular and was simply synonymous with traffic. The director was afraid that the audience would have a rebellious mentality. They would see him and think that his traffic was equivalent to a bad movie. Once the time came, it would affect word of mouth and the box office. Thus, the director was hesitant. He wanted to use Su Tong but also didn’t want to use him.

Apart from the two of them, two other people did well. Their popularity was okay, unlike Lin Luoqing who wasn’t famous or the popular Su Tong with many black fans. It was said that Director Li was currently inclined toward these two people.

Lin Luoqing heard this and didn’t bother much with this movie. He planned to look at other scripts. There were many dramas and movies in the world. There was no need to focus on just one.

He was reading when his phone rang. Lin Luoqing looked down and saw it was Director Zhang.

He picked it up with some doubts. Why was he calling? Was ‘Peaches and Plums Don’t Speak’ going to be aired?

‘Peaches and Plums Don’t Speak’ was indeed about to be aired, but it wasn’t now. Director Zhang called him for another job.

“Xiao Lin, have you been busy lately? If you aren’t busy, can you come to the rescue?”


Lin Luoqing was puzzled. “What’s going on?”

Director Zhang took a sip of water and slowly talked to him.

In fact, the matter was simple. A director friend of Director Zhang’s started a new work this year, which was a drama. It would be filmed with the support of relevant departments and told the story of police officers.

The script was very solid and those who were invited were regular actors and old veterans. There was an undercover role in it. This role was previously set to be played by a young actor who wasn’t famous but had solid acting skills. As a result, the young actor felt that this undercover role had too few scenes. It just so happened that the breach of contract fee wasn’t high. He directly paid the breach of contract fee to terminate the contract.

Now the crew had started filming but they were missing this key role. It had to be said that they were in a rush.

In particular, this role didn’t have many scenes but since it was an undercover role, the requirements for acting weren’t low. It had to be a young actor and they had to be able to enter the crew immediately. There were few people suitable for such a role.

The director and producer used their relationships to find someone. Once they contacted Director Zhang, he instantly thought of Lin Luoqing.

He felt this drama was very good for Lin Luoqing. “You can’t always film idol dramas in the future. You must film some serious dramas. You can also accumulate some contacts if you go there now. There aren’t many scenes and you can finish filming in 20 days. It won’t delay your time too much. Are you willing?”
