FV: Chapter 175

Lin Luoqing celebrated his birthday and was ready to go to work.

‘Peaches and Plums Don’t Speak’ had become popular, causing many magazines, variety shows and commercial performances to send him invitations. Some event organizers who previously had an agreement with the crew specially named Lin Luoqing and hoped Lin Luoqing could attend with the male and female protagonists.

When the producer congratulated Lin Luoqing on his birthday yesterday, he tactfully said he would give Lin Luoqing a birthday gift the next time they met and really hoped that they could meet soon.

Lin Luoqing had to understand his hint and quickly replied: [I will participate in the afternoon event the day after tomorrow.]

The moment he said this, the producer was finally relieved and praised him a few times. Then the producer gave him a big red envelope and left gracefully, making Lin Luoqing dumbfounded.

The most important thing after becoming popular was to maintain exposure, especially when he just became popular. Lin Luoqing knew all of this but he was busy filming before. Now the filming was over. After his birthday passed, he should work hard for his popularity.

Therefore, Lin Luoqing finished applying medicine on Ji Yuxiao’s bruises and started to pack his luggage.

Ji Yuxiao saw his actions and asked, “Are you leaving again?”

“It is just for two days. There are two activities tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. They are both in the same place so I won’t come back. It will save me spending money flying back and forth. I’ll come back when I’m done with work the day after tomorrow.”

Ji Yuxiao was relieved after hearing he would only go out for two days.

“Will you have to go out after these two days?”

“I probably have to go out,” Lin Luoqing answered honestly. “My idol drama suddenly became popular and even I have become popular. There are many business activities. Fortunately, they are all intermittent and they won’t go on for months at a time.”

“That’s good.”

“But I have an audition on the 30th. If the audition is successful, I might have to film a movie after a while,” Lin Luoqing said. He blinked guiltily and acted cute.

Ji Yuxiao thought, ‘…My wife is now busier than me!’

Was this the price of being popular?

He was already panicking!

“Are we going to officially enter the phase of gathering less and separating more?” He asked sincerely.

Lin Luoqing was amused by his words. “Don’t worry, I will balance it well. Once my results are more stable, I will only film one or two movies a year and it will be much easier.”

“Then I hope you can hurry and get stable results.”

“I will work hard!” Lin Luoqing made a cheering gesture to himself.

As they were talking, Ji Yuxiao’s phone suddenly rang. He picked it up and took a look. Then he looked at Lin Luoqing with a smile. “Guess who?”

Lin Luoqing was puzzled. “Who is it?”

“The one who is delivering a courier for you.”

Lin Luoqing, “???”

He still had a courier?

“What did you buy? Do you still need a courier?”

Ji Yuxiao smiled without saying anything and picked it up. “Hello.”

“Yuxiao, what is going on with this Xiao Zhuang. Why hasn’t he signed the contract yet?” Father Lin’s anxious voice came from the phone.

Ji Yuxiao pretended to be puzzled. “Didn’t you ask him?”

“I asked and he said he isn’t at ease. He says that he hasn’t cooperated with our company before. In addition, a company he has cooperated with before wants to cooperate with him this year, so he has started to hesitate again.”

“So he didn’t say how to solve it? Did you ask him how he can feel relieved?”

“I asked,” Father Lin answered helplessly. “He said that he came to talk to us due to you. He thought that the company had something to do with you before. Now he found out that it doesn’t, so he isn’t willing.”

Father Lin was a bit angry. “This President Zhuang is a bit too much. Doesn’t he know the relationship between the two of us? Why doesn’t it matter! I said I was your father-in-law but he acted like he didn’t hear it.”

“It’s okay, Uncle. Don’t worry. I’ll talk to him. Just wait.”

“Good good good.” Father Lin nodded with satisfaction. “Then hurry up. I can’t feel relieved about this contract without signing it. I will keep worrying about it when I sleep at night.”

“I understand.”

Ji Yuxiao finished speaking and hung up the phone.

“My dad?” Lin Luoqing asked him.

Ji Yuxiao nodded before saying. “Would you like another present while it is your birthday?”

Lin Luoqing smiled. He now understood why Ji Yuxiao said it was a courier just now.

“What is it?” Lin Luoqing was curious. “Are you going to make a fortune for me again? How much is it this time?”

Ji Yuxiao smiled. “You will know later.”

He didn’t wait too long. Soon, Ji Yuxiao called Father Lin back.

“How about it, Yuxiao? Is he willing to sign?” Father Lin asked anxiously.

“Yes,” Ji Yuxiao said with a smile.

Lin Luoqing silently approached and sat beside him. He listened to Ji Yuxiao say in an unhurried manner, “I told him. He is indeed very hesitant. He is more inclined toward the company he has worked with before. In the end, he still wants to give me this bit of face so he said that the contract will be drawn up in two days and officially signed.”

“That’s good, that’s good,” Father Lin said with a smile.

“It is just…” Ji Yuxiao paused.

Father Lin was puzzled. “What is it?”

“It is Luoqing. I am afraid you will have to arrange a position for him,” Ji Yuxiao said casually. “To be honest, Uncle, President Zhuang isn’t interested in Boyuan’s technology and products and he doesn’t believe in your ability. That is why he wants to cooperate with the previous company. I said I would be responsible for the cooperation project but he didn’t believe me. He thinks I have nothing to do with Boyuan and once the time comes, I will leave it alone and he will be miserable. However, you know that my side isn’t really interested in a small company like Boyuan. He said that if it is really impossible, Luoqing can be responsible for this cooperation. I don’t think it is necessary but the other person is very persistent. So you see…”

Father Lin listened to these words and couldn’t react for a while.

What did he mean? Did Lin Luoqing also want to get involved now?

Ji Yuxiao thought this person was still unwilling and said deliberately, “If Luoqing knew about this, he would definitely listen to you. After all, he has always been filial and obedient. To be honest, he is now the CEO of Xingyi and he is too busy as an actor. Therefore, I don’t quite agree.”

“In fact, Uncle, this project isn’t a big deal. Let’s forget it and wait for a while. I will introduce you to a better partner.”

Father Lin, “!!!”

Father Lin rejected this wholeheartedly from the inside out!

He didn’t want to wait!

Besides, he thought this cooperation partner was really good. Why did he need to wait?

He wasn’t stupid. He could vaguely feel that the other person didn’t think much of his company. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have kept dragging it out when they had talked for so long.

The other person was obviously coming for Ji Yuxiao and naturally wanted more benefits. If Ji Yuxiao was in charge of this project and there was a problem on Boyuan’s side, then the Ji Group could help handle it. Anyone would feel more secure.

It was just that Ji Yuxiao didn’t bother to care about the Ji Group, let alone Boyuan. The other person probably brought up Lin Luoqing to make sure Ji Yuxiao was more involved. After all, Lin Luoqing was his wife. If there was a problem then as his husband, Ji Yuxiao naturally couldn’t ignore it.

Father Lin’s mind spun quickly.

Lin Luoqing was his son. He was the stupid and filial kind and he couldn’t be driven away. Lin Luoqing was bound to not do anything unfavorable to him, so it was okay for Lin Luoqing to be responsible.

Besides, what could Lin Luoqing do?

To put it bluntly, Lin Luoqing wouldn’t be making decisions so it made no difference.

“Then Luoqing will be in charge,” Father Lin agreed. “Don’t wait any longer and sign it now.”

It had been so many days since he gave Lin Luoqing the shares and he finally saw the shadow of getting some benefits. How could he let the soon-to-be-cooked duck fly away?

The longer the delay, the more trouble there was.

“At that time, bring Luoqing with you and strive to let President Zhuang sign the contract on the spot.”

“Then Uncle, you have to give Luoqing a position.” Ji Yuxiao thought of him. “Otherwise, what identity should Luoqing use to represent Boyuan?”

‘This is true.’ Father Lin nodded silently.

Ji Yuxiao was very considerate. “I remember when my brother joined the company and my father gave him the position of general manager. The main thing is that Luoqing’s position can’t be too low. Then wouldn’t it seem like you don’t take President Zhuang seriously? This might cause President Zhuang to misunderstand and think that you and Luoqing have a bad relationship. It will be bad if he starts to worry at this time.”

Lin Luoqing, “!!!”

What did I hear? General manager?

Brother, you are too much the moment you open your mouth?

It is me who is narrow-minded!

Father Lin felt that Ji Yuxiao’s words made sense.

For so many years, he had been the chairman and general manager. The power was firmly in his own hands and he had the final say in everything.

However, Lin Luoqing obviously didn’t know anything about business management. Even if he was given the position of general manager, it would just for decoration. Once the time came, Father Lin could make the decision. Based on Lin Luoqing’s temperament, was there any way he wouldn’t listen?

So it was nothing to give it to him.

It was just a false title.

Moreover, Ji Yuxiao was right. He couldn’t let Lin Luoqing sign a contract as an ordinary employee. Then the other person definitely wouldn’t feel that they were valued and the person might back out on the deal.

Father Lin wanted to sign this contract now. Nothing else mattered. He trusted his oldest son very much and knew very well that his oldest son had no skills. It was naturally the most suitable for Lin Luoqing to be the link.

“Okay, just do it according to your words. Let Luoqing sign a contract with President Zhuang as the general manager.”

“Then Uncle, you have to prepare an office for Luoqing in your company and inform all the employees of the company. Otherwise, if people look for Luoqing in the follow-up cooperation and the employees say there is no such person then it will be embarrassing.”

“Of course,” Father Lin said with a smile. “Don’t worry, I’ll let people clean up the office tomorrow. I won’t make things difficult for you.”

“That’s good.”

“Yes. Then Yuxiao, help me keep an eye on this matter. I’ll see you then.”


Ji Yuxiao finished speaking and hung up the phone.

Lin Luoqing listened to the words and became a bit confused once he really became the general manager of Boyuan.

“Congratulations, General Manager Lin,” Ji Yuxiao said with a smile.

Lin Luoqing blinked. “I am really going to become General Manager Lin?”


“So what do I need to do?”

“Nothing.” Ji Yuxiao looked at him with a smile. “You just need to show up occasionally and recite the lines I give you.”

Lin Luoqing nodded while feeling like it was unrealistic. “Say, I am General Manager Lin. Does that mean I am making money?”

“You have to make money,” Ji Yuxiao said with a smile.

Lin Luoqing also smiled. “Chen Feng and Lin Luojing will probably be furious after knowing this, right?”

He couldn’t help being happy when he thought of this. “I really want to see their expressions after they know about it~”
