FV: Chapter 34 Part 2
At 9:30 in the evening, Lin Luoqing knocked on Ji Leyu’s door and asked if he wanted Lin Luoqing to help him take a bath.
Ji Leyu looked at him in surprise like he hadn’t expected it.
Then Ji Leyu thought about this. Previously, his mother would help him take a bath. Lin Luoqing was now married to Ji Yuxiao, which was equivalent to his adoptive mother. Then it was normal to help him take a bath.
Thus, he nodded and agreed. “Okay.”
Lin Luoqing went to the bathroom, helped him fill up the water and carried him in.
Ji Leyu hadn’t been bathed by someone else for a long time.
In the first few days after the car accident, Ji Yuxiao would wait in the wheelchair and watch him as he took a bath in the bathtub.
Ji Leyu didn’t want to bother him so after Ji Yuxiao watched him bathe a few times, he told his uncle, “I already know how to do this and I can do it alone. You don’t have to worry about me.”
Ji Yuxiao saw that he was a child with a lot of pride and didn’t like to be watched, so he went out and only waited for Ji Leyu in the bathroom.
Unexpectedly, there was now someone to help him.
He looked at Lin Luoqing and felt a bit strange.
For Ji Leyu, the composition of the world was very simple. There were only three people in the center of the world: His father, his mother and Ji Yuxiao.
His parents were gone so Ji Yuxiao was infinitely amplified and centered, almost becoming his entire world.
Now Lin Luoqing was standing beside Ji Yuxiao.
Ji Yuxiao liked Lin Luoqing so he was also willing to like Lin Luoqing.
However, it wasn’t until today that Ji Leyu was surprised to find that when Ji Yuxiao became his father then Lin Luoqing had also become his mother in another sense—or another father.
For example, Lin Luoqing would pick him up from school, eat with him and bathe him, just like his mother had done.
He looked at Lin Luoqing. Lin Luoqing had lowered his head and was helping him apply the shower gel. Lin Luoqing applied it very seriously and after a while, his body was covered by a pile of bubbles.
Lin Luoqing raised his head and smiled at Ji Leyu. His eyes were full of tenderness, just like Ji Leyu’s mother.
Ji Leyu cocked his head and stared at him seriously.
“Why are you looking at me like that?” Lin Luoqing asked seriously. “Is there something on my face?”
Ji Leyu shook his head.
He asked, “Uncle Lin, will you always be nice to me?”
“Of course.” Lin Luoqing replied. “You are my baby~”
Ji Leyu was surprised when he heard the word ‘baby’ and smiled happily.
His mother used to call him baby, her treasure.
He looked at Lin Luoqing and thought to himself, ‘If I really have one more mother then it isn’t bad.’
In any case, his uncle liked Lin Luoqing and they would live together in the future. As long as Lin Luoqing was willing to treat his uncle well then, he could have one more mother, oh no, men couldn’t be called mother. They had to be called father.
Lin Luoqing helped Ji Leyu rinse off the bubbles and wiped the water droplets on his body with a bath towel. Then he carried Ji Leyu out.
Ji Leyu smiled and looked in a good mood.
Lin Luoqing put him on the bed, changed him into new pajamas and patted him on the head. “Go to sleep early.”
“Yes, good night Uncle.”
“Good night.” He walked out of Ji Leyu’s room and entered Lin Fei’s room.
Lin Fei was reading a book and didn’t show much of an expression when he saw Lin Luoqing coming in.
Lin Luoqing approached him. “You should take a bath and sleep.”
Lin Fei looked at his watch, closed the book reluctantly and entered the bathroom with Lin Luoqing.
“I can wash myself,” He said while looking at Lin Luoqing, who was turning on the hot water.
Lin Luoqing glanced at him and said with a smile, “I am going to work in a few days and won’t have time to help you take a bath even if you want it. So cherish the days when your uncle still has time.”
“Are you going to work?” Lin Fei asked.
Lin Luoqing nodded. “Yes, will you miss me?”
Lin Fei said nothing.
Lin Luoqing sighed in an exaggerated manner. “Why are you so cold? I will miss you but you won’t miss me. You are really cruel Fei Fei.”
Lin Fei, “……”
Lin Fei had to say helplessly, “I will miss you.”
“Really?” Lin Luoqing looked at him.
Lin Fei’s eyes had 30% helplessness, 20% resignation and 50% indulgence. “Really.”’
Lin Luoqing looked at the indulgence in his eyes and thought, ‘Good guy, it has only been a few days since taking the family photo and there is more indulgence. This is too cute!’
Lin Luoqing raised his hand. “Pinky promise me.”
Lin Fei was dumbfounded. ‘…Why is it still a pinky promise?’
His uncle was really childish!
Lin Fei had to raise his hand and extend his little finger.
Lin Luoqing was satisfied. He watched Lin Fei take off his clothes and carried Lin Fei to the bathtub.
Lin Fei didn’t ask him too much about his work. It was normal for everyone to work so it wasn’t a big deal for Lin Luoqing to go to work.
He thought that Lin Luoqing would be like his mother, leaving early and returning late but still seeing him every day. Therefore, he naturally didn’t worry about anything.
Lin Luoqing quickly helped him take a bath, wiped him with a towel and carried him out.
Lin Luoqing said softly, “I’ll sleep with you tonight.”
“I can sleep by myself.” Lin Fei’s tone was as calm as always.
Lin Luoqing patted his head and said while helping him put on pajamas, “I went to pick up Xiao Yu today and sent him to school in the morning. You might not care about it, but I like you and want to sleep with you to compensate you.”
The stone in Lin Fei’s heart suddenly disappeared.
He looked at Lin Luoqing and said indifferently, “I don’t need compensation.”
“Yes yes, you don’t need it. I’m the one who wants to do it, okay?”
Lin Luoqing pinched his face. “Can’t you allow your uncle to occasionally favor you? Don’t you know that your uncle likes you very much?”
Lin Fei, “……”
Lin Fei’s ears reddened as he said, “Oh.”
“Be good.” Lin Luoqing rubbed his head.
“Wait for me. I’ll go and tell your Uncle Ji. Then I’ll come back.”
Lin Fei nodded. “Yes.”
Ji Yuxiao had just come out of the bathroom when he saw that his wife couldn’t wait to pick up the pillow.
Ji Yuxiao thought, ‘…My wife is so active every day. It really tests a person’s determination!’
“I have something to tell you.” Lin Luoqing smiled.
‘…It is coming. My wife should be telling me not to be a human again!’
Ji Yuxiao was very determined but he couldn’t withstand such tests every day!
“I’m not sleeping here tonight.”
Ji Yuxiao thought, ‘I know… Wait, what did you just say?”
“Is it with Fei Fei?” Ji Yuxiao asked in shock.
Lin Luoqing hummed in agreement. “Today is my first day picking up Xiao Yu. Fei Fei might not care but I still want him to know that I care about him and really like him. This liking won’t change just because I am also Xiao Yu’s relative now. Therefore, I want to accompany him and sleep with him.”
…It was justified but what should Ji Yuxiao do?
“Can I?” Lin Luoqing asked.
He was even hugging the pillow. How could Ji Yuxiao refuse?
Ji Yuxiao hesitated for a moment before suggesting, “Or shall we go and sleep with him together?”
This way, he didn’t have to sleep alone!
“How can that work? Xiao Yu will be jealous. You aren’t allowed to go.” Lin Luoqing didn’t hesitate to refuse.
Ji Yuxiao, “……”
“Then are you willing to show me a scene from a book I have been reading recently before you go?”
Lin Luoqing, “……”
Lin Luoqing felt that what this person really liked wasn’t himself but his hypnotic acting!
He snorted. “You want me to act every day. Are you really treating me as a sleeping pill? You can perform it yourself!”
Ji Yuxiao, “???”
“Won’t you think about it again?”
You won’t act but you are also leaving. Isn’t this too cruel?
“Next time, next time.” Lin Luoqing said helplessly. “Fei Fei is waiting for me right now. Think about my previous performances first. I will definitely do it next time!”
Ji Yuxiao, “……”
Ji Yuxiao felt this was too painful! Too distressing!
How can I tell you that Lin Fei might be able to sleep without you but I definitely won’t be able to sleep without you!
He is six years old and can sleep independently!
It is me who can’t sleep independently!
Your husband, me!
Ji Yuxiao looked at Lin Luoqing and waved his hand. Lin Luoqing wasn’t taking away a cloud, only his own pillow, but Ji Yuxiao’s heart was cold!
He wouldn’t be able to sleep tonight!
