FV: Chapter 171

Lin Luoqing brought Lin Fei and Ji Leyu back to his bedroom. He was in a good mood and wasn’t in a hurry to sleep. He held Lin Fei and Ji Leyu while talking.

However, he soon realized that he was an adult who could stay up late while Lin Fei was young and staying up late wasn’t good for his growth and development. Lin Fei hadn’t rested well yesterday to make the card, so he should go to sleep quickly.

He pulled up the quilt and tucked the two children in. “Sleep, sleep. We should sleep.”

Lin Fei had no opinion and Ji Leyu was also sleepy. Ji Yuxiao looked at the three of them, eyes full of tolerance and tenderness.

The family of four lay down and fell asleep sweetly.

At 7 o’clock in the morning, Ji Yuxiao opened his eyes.

Lin Luoqing was staying at home these days and Ji Yuxiao didn’t dare go to the rehabilitation room. However, today was Lin Luoqing’s birthday. He wanted to stand and hold Lin Luoqing today. He planned to take advantage of the time when Lin Luoqing wasn’t awake to go to the rehabilitation room. He had finally just managed to stand firmly. Ji Yuxiao was afraid that he hadn’t exercised in two and a half days and when the time came, he wouldn’t be able to stand up again and would fall in front of Lin Luoqing.

When his legs were healthy, he wouldn’t feel it was a big deal to stand, walk and run.

It was only when he lost it once and obtained it again that Ji Yuxiao felt he should cherish it.

He got out of bed carefully.

Thanks to the blessing of Lin Fei and Ji Leyu, the old father Lin Luoqing was deeply touched yesterday and insisted on falling asleep next to Lin Fei. Ji Yuxiao happily agreed considering his plans this morning.

He originally thought he wouldn’t be able to sleep because the two children separated him from Lin Luoqing. He hadn’t expected to fall asleep without knowing it. Ji Yuxiao felt that his insomnia seemed to be improving. He still couldn’t fall asleep when Lin Luoqing was away and needed medical assistance, but as long as Lin Luoqing was there, he could fall asleep peacefully without sleeping next to Lin Luoqing.

It was strange but also incredibly reassuring.

Perhaps when his legs were well and he got revenge for his brother and sister-in-law then he could really sleep well.

He went into the bathroom in a wheelchair and washed lightly. Then the moment he came out of the bathroom, before he reached the bed, he saw Lin Fei looking at him with eyes open.

Lin Fei looked at him and whispered, “Good morning.”

Ji Yuxiao was surprised in his heart and secretly thought, ‘You woke up early.’

“Good morning, are you hungry? Do you want to eat breakfast? I’ll go with you.”

Lin Fei shook his head. He wasn’t very hungry and Lin Luoqing was still holding him. If he got up at this time then Lin Luoqing would definitely wake up.

Seeing this, Ji Yuxiao didn’t force him and said, “Then I’ll go eat breakfast first.”

Now it was Lin Fei who was surprised. He had the impression that as long as Lin Luoqing was here, Ji Yuxiao would always eat with him, including breakfast. Why didn’t he wait for Lin Luoqing today?

Today was still Lin Luoqing’s birthday.

He was about to remind Ji Yuxiao that today was special when Ji Yuxiao said softly, “I have to go and prepare a surprise for your dad. This means I have to get up first and be busy for a while. Don’t wake him. Once he wakes up in a while, just say that I have something at work and I am busy, okay?”

Lin Fei heard him say this and felt it was normal. He knew that Ji Yuxiao wasn’t such a careless person.

He nodded cooperatively and asked him, “When will you finish?”

“Probably around noon. If your dad wakes up, send me a WeChat message or call me. I will know and come back as soon as possible.”

“Yes.”

“Thank you. Fei Fei is really good.”

Lin Fei listened to his father thank him and secretly thought that his father was sometimes a bit stupid. He previously said that they didn’t need to thank each other but now he said it again.

This was the second time.

However, Lin Fei still decided to tolerate this little omission generously. He closed one eye, only opening his left eye, and said softly, “Yes.’

Ji Yuxiao saw him opening one eye and closing the other and thought he was winking. This made Ji Yuxiao feel that he was really cute. If it wasn’t for the tight time frame and the fact that Lin Fei was sleeping between Ji Leyu and Lin Luoqing, he really wanted to go over and kiss Lin Fei.

There was no way to kiss him but it was okay to return a wink. He blinked lightly and gave Lin Fei a wink.

Lin Fei thought this was making a deal with him and telling him to keep it a secret, so he winked and didn’t say anything. He waved and watched Ji Yuxiao leave.

Ji Yuxiao left the bedroom. To save time, he only ate a few steamed buns and went to the rehabilitation room.

After two days, Ji Yuxiao stood here again. He fell several times before finally finding the feeling again.

His clothes soon became sweaty but he kept practicing.

He took a short break when he was tired and he got up again when he fell.

Ji Yuxiao had never fallen so many times since he was a child. All the ups and downs in his life seemed to be here. He fell again and again and he desperately wanted to get up again and again.

The rehabilitation process was long, boring and tedious, but Ji Yuxiao never complained.

He just wanted to get up, no matter how many times he fell.

Once Lin Fei’s WeChat message arrived, Ji Yuxiao was being helped up by Xiao Li.

He had just stood for more than 40 seconds, which was his new best result. Ji Yuxiao was very happy. 40 seconds should be enough for Lin Luoqing to open his eyes and see Ji Yuxiao standing in front of him and then walk over.

He sat on the floor, his back already soaked. Ji Yuxiao drank some water and looked at Lin Fei’s WeChat message.

Lin Fei: [He woke up.]

Ji Yuxiao looked at the time. It was almost 11 o’clock. It seemed that his lover had a good dream.

Lin Luoqing did have a good dream. In the dream, he was a forest that became a human. He sat on a tree and a little tiger was lying under the tree. He looked at the little tiger and the tiger also looked at him.

The moment he jumped on the little tiger, the little tiger carried him all the way forward. They saw mountains and rivers, starry skies and deserts, sunrises and sunsets and the ebb and flow of the tide.

Finally, they returned to the original forest. The little tiger looked at the forest in front of him and whispered, “I like you.”

He kissed the little tiger’s ear and fell asleep on top of him.

As long as he liked, he could keep this forest for him forever. It would always be lush and leafy, there for him when he wanted to return.

After waking up, Lin Luoqing thought to himself that it must be due to Lin Fei’s card. Who would’ve thought that the cold-faced Lin Fei could write something like that? No wonder why he could get full marks in his language class. He really hid it deeply and the books weren’t read in vain.

Lin Luoqing turned his head to kiss Lin Fei. The moment he turned his head, he found that Lin Fei had woken up and was staring at him intently.

Lin Luoqing, “……”

He wondered, “When did you wake up?”

“After 7 o’clock.”

Lin Luoqing looked at his watch. It was almost 11 o’clock. “Then why didn’t you wake up?”

‘Isn’t that obvious?’ Lin Fei said with his eyes.

Lin Luoqing quickly corrected it. “I mean, why didn’t you get up?”

“I don’t remember,” Lin Fei answered.

Lin Luoqing smiled. He seemed to have discovered a new continent as he exclaimed with surprise, “Wow~ Fei Fei, you can lie in bed?”

Lin Fei, “……”

A familiar disdain appeared in Lin Fei’s eyes.

How could he lie in bed? Only Lin Luoqing and Ji Leyu liked to stay in bed, okay?

However, he didn’t want to tell Lin Luoqing that he was afraid of waking up Lin Luoqing, so he didn’t speak.

Lin Luoqing saw that he didn’t refute it and just thought he was embarrassed.

He smiled brightly. “It’s okay. Fei Fei who stays in bed is cute too.”

He hugged Lin Fei and said intimately, “Everything Fei Fei does is cute. I like everything you do.”

Lin Fei, “……”

Lin Fei inexplicably felt his ears become a bit hot.

“It is time for you to wash your face.” He changed the subject.

Lin Luoqing nodded. “Come with me. It is just right. I can kiss you after washing my face.”

Lin Fei, “???”

Lin Luoqing smiled. “Don’t you like it? That’s okay. I’ll kiss you. But to make up for the kisses I have missed, I will kiss you more. It is twice in total.”

Lin Fei: “??????”

Lin Fei sat up silently. He didn’t speak and got out of bed.

Lin Luoqing also sat up. At this time, he found that Ji Yuxiao wasn’t in bed.

“Where is your father?” He asked. “Did you see him when you woke up?”

“He is busy,” Lin Fei answered according to what Ji Yuxiao taught him. “He has something to do at work.”

Lin Luoqing nodded without thinking about it too much. Ji Yuxiao had always been very busy and he couldn’t help. Therefore, Lin Luoqing never bothered him and didn’t ask any more questions.

Lin Fei’s toothbrush and cup weren’t brought over and he wanted to go back to his room to brush his teeth. Lin Luoqing didn’t stop him and patted his back. “Go.”

Lin Fei went back to his room, took out his phone from the drawer and sent a WeChat message to Ji Yuxiao.

Ji Yuxiao received his WeChat message and replied to him: [I got it. Fei Fei is awesome. I’ll be back in a while.]

Lin Fei saw his reply and was relieved. He put the phone back in the drawer, brushed his teeth and washed his face.

Lin Luoqing finished washing up. He saw that Ji Leyu hadn’t woken up yet, but didn’t call him. He wanted Ji Leyu to sleep more.

He went to Ji Yuxiao’s study. Unexpectedly, Ji Yuxiao wasn’t in the study.

Did Ji Yuxiao go out?

It seemed that today’s matter was really quite troublesome. Lin Luoqing wondered when he would come back.

He looked at his watch and sent a WeChat message to Ji Yuxiao. He asked: [Are you busy?]

Last night, Ji Yuxiao said he would eat longevity noodles for lunch today. Lin Luoqing had no interest in longevity noodles, but he wanted to eat the longevity noodles made by Ji Yuxiao. Now it was 11 o’clock and he hadn’t finished his work. Lin Luoqing was a bit worried about whether he would make it in time for lunch.

Ji Yuxiao didn’t reply to him. It seemed that he was really busy. Lin Luoqing didn’t bother him and went to find Lin Fei.

Lin Fei had already washed his face and applied the children’s face cream very carefully.

He was about to go and find Lin Luoqing. Then he saw Lin Luoqing push open the door and walk in.

“Are you hungry?” Lin Luoqing asked him.

Lin Fei shook his head.

“Then we’ll wait for your father and brother and will eat later.”

“Yes.” Lin Fei nodded.

Lin Luoqing approached him, picked him up and sat him on the bed. He asked, “Was it difficult to make the card?”

Lin Fei, “……”

Lin Fei didn’t want to talk about this topic.

Lin Luoqing saw him turn his face away awkwardly and smiled. He kissed Lin Fei’s face. “This is the best birthday gift I have ever received.”

Lin Fei was happy.

However, he still looked expressionless. “Oh.”

Lin Luoqing smiled and kissed him again.

Lin Fei, “???”

He kissed twice, so he had already kissed what he should’ve kissed.

So he wouldn’t kiss any longer?

Lin Fei blinked. He was actually planning to kiss Lin Luoqing later.

Lin Luoqing saw him staring and wondered, “What’s wrong, Baby?”

Lin Fei looked at him silently. Then he quickly remembered Lin Luoqing previously saying that as long as Lin Fei kissed him, he would be in a better mood. It was Lin Luoqing’s birthday today. He should naturally be in a better mood. Then Lin Fei could kiss him.

Lin Fei figured out the answer and didn’t stare any longer. He approached Lin Luoqing, kissed him on the face and said in a soft voice, “Happy birthday.”

Lin Luoqing instantly hugged him tightly. He clung to Lin Fei, his heart full of joy.

“Yes, I’m so happy!”

Once he finished speaking, he kissed Lin Fei fiercely several times.

Ji Yuxiao came out of the bathroom after taking a bath. He changed into his dressing gown and saw Lin Luoqing’s WeChat message.

He quickly went out, got off the elevator and called Lin Luoqing.

“I’m done,” he said softly.

Lin Luoqing’s voice was full of vitality and joy. “Really? So when will you come back?”

“Are you in the bedroom?”

“I’m in Fei Fei’s bedroom,” Lin Luoqing answered.

Ji Yuxiao turned the direction of the wheelchair and walked to Lin Fei’s bedroom.

He pushed open the door, saw the surprised Lin Luoqing and said with a smile, “I’m back.”

Lin Luoqing couldn’t help smiling when he saw the other person appear so suddenly. He put Lin Fei down and walked to Ji Yuxiao. He was about to say something when he saw that Ji Yuxiao was wearing a dressing gown. “You didn’t go out?”’

Lin Luoqing was confused.

“No.”

“Why weren’t you in the study?”

“I met someone but I didn’t want to let him into the study.”

Lin Luoqing nodded with understanding.

The study had always been a secret place and not just anyone could enter it.

“Let’s go.” Ji Yuxiao ended his rehabilitation, took a bath and changed his clothes. He appeared in front of Lin Luoqing again with a fresh demeanor to not delay Lin Luoqing’s birthday.

“I’ll go and make you some longevity noodles,” he said.

“Then I’ll go and see if Xiao Yu is awake?” Lin Luoqing asked.

“I’ll go with you.”

Lin Luoqing nodded and went to push the wheelchair.

It was only then that Ji Yuxiao sighed with relief. He thought that he had managed to conceal this matter and secretly glanced at Lin Fei, giving him an ‘awesome’ look.

Lin Fei put his hands in his pocket, as cold as ever.

‘Dad is indeed easy to deceive,’ he thought. ‘It is so easy for him to believe Father’s words without asking questions. It can be seen that he is indeed very simple. He is really worrying.’

Lin Fei sat on the bed, picked up the book at the end of the bed and read it again.
