FV: Chapter 43
“I’m not stupid. You still think you are a bearer of ill luck.” Lin Fei looked at him.
Ji Leyu was so angry that he lifted his foot to kick him. However, Lin Fei clamped his foot with his leg and taught him. “Don’t kick people.”
Ji Leyu snorted. “Release me.”
Lin Fei loosened his legs.
Ji Leyu turned around and stopped talking.
‘Now he is really angry,’ Lin Fei thought.
He sighed inwardly and somewhat helplessly reached out to wrap his arms around Ji Leyu’s waist.
Ji Leyu raised his hand, grabbed it and threw it directly to the side.
Lin Fei touched his head. “Be good.”
“I won’t be good,” Ji Leyu retorted.
Lin Fei continued to rub his little head and coaxed him. “Don’t be angry.”
He moved forward, hugging Ji Leyu, touching his head and coaxing him.
Ji Leyu was patted like a cat for a while before he sullenly said, “I’m not a bearer of ill luck.”
“Yes,” Lin Fei whispered. “You’re not.”
“Then why did you say it just now?”
“I was wrong.” Lin Fei assured him. “I won’t say it in the future.”
“I’m not at all.” Ji Leyu was stubborn.
“I never was.”
“Yes.” Lin Fei nodded. “You are very good.”
It was only then that Ji Leyu turned around. He looked at Lin Fei in a slightly aggrieved manner and deliberately told him, “I’m not good either.”
“You are pretty good most of the time.” Lin Fei touched his head.
“Then I will reluctantly consider what you said earlier.” The corners of Ji Leyu’s lips curved up.
Lin Fei heard this and touched his head one last time. “Yes.”
He withdrew his hand and was about to withdraw the arm holding Ji Leyu’s waist when it was held down.
Lin Fei was puzzled. Hadn’t he finished coaxing? Wasn’t Ji Leyu coaxed? Why still hold it?
Ji Leyu approached, found a comfortable pillow position and hugged Lin Fei’s arms. Then he closed his eyes next to him.
“Don’t let go~” He told Lin Fei. “I haven’t been hugged to sleep in a long time. Hug me more tonight~”
His voice was sweet, light and fluttering and bright and coquettish.
Lin Fei hummed but didn’t refuse.
Ji Leyu was happy. “Good night, Brother.”
Lin Fei finished speaking and closed his eyes.
This time, Ji Leyu finally stopped making trouble. The two of them smoothly fell asleep together.
Lin Luoqing came to wake Ji Leyu and Lin Fei to go to school the next morning and found that the two of them had slept together again, hugging each other.
Lin Luoqing thought, ‘…It seems that after I left yesterday, Ji Leyu wasn’t at ease.’
Therefore, he came back to find Lin Fei.
But what was going on with this hug?
Lin Fei must know about Ji Leyu pushing people. Wasn’t he afraid?
Ji Leyu knew that Lin Fei had seen his true face. Wasn’t he afraid?
Lin Luoqing clicked his tongue while thinking that they deserved to be the villain and the cold-faced King of Hell in the book. Their mentality was really good.
He woke up the two people and took advantage of when Ji Leyu went back to his room to wash up to ask Lin Fei, “What’s going on? Why are the two of you sleeping together again?”
“He said he couldn’t sleep and wanted to sleep with me,” Lin Fei explained calmly.
“So you put your arm around him?”
“He put my arm around him.” Lin Fei looked at Lin Luoqing. “He said that no one has held him to sleep for a long time.”
Lin Luoqing heard this and was a bit distressed.
He said, “It seems like he likes you.”
Lin Fei felt this wasn’t necessarily the case.
“Then you can help me take care of him more.” Lin Luoqing bent down and touched his head. “You are both children and I am an adult. He might not tell me some things but he will tell you. Help me take care of him a bit and don’t let others bully him. Don’t let him bully others as well, okay?”
Lin Fei saw the smile on the other person’s face and hesitated for a moment before finally nodding.
Lin Luoqing pinched his face. “You are so good.”
Lin Fei’s expression became disgusted.
Lin Luoqing laughed. “Do you still dislike me praising you? Is it bad to praise you?”
“I didn’t let you praise me.”
“Yes yes, I can’t help but want to praise you. I think you are so good and you are the best child in the world. It is my problem, alright?”
The tips of Lin Fei’s ears turned slightly red. He seemed a bit happy but he didn’t want to show it, so he lowered his head and turned around.
“Let’s go downstairs and eat.”
Lin Luoqing suddenly became playful. He walked over quickly and picked up Lin Fei.
Lin Fei looked at him suspiciously. “What is this for?”
Lin Luoqing kissed him on the face and smiled. “I want to hug you too.”
He added, “I also want to kiss you.”
Lin Fei, “……”
He is really clingy.
Fortunately, Lin Fei was used to it.
Lin Fei didn’t say a word. There was 30% helplessness, 60% indulgence and 10% shyness in his eyes. Lin Luoqing kissed him again before putting him down.
All morning, Lin Luoqing watched how Lin Fei and Ji Leyu got along. He stared at them for a long time but didn’t see any difference from before.
Was he thinking too much?
The two of them didn’t have any more conversations about the Ji Xin matter last night? It was really that Ji Leyu couldn’t sleep so he found someone to sleep with?
However, Lin Luoqing soon found that he wasn’t thinking too much.
It was because after school in the afternoon, Ji Leyu went to Lin Fei’s room.
Lin Fei sat on the bay window and watered his little cactus.
Lin Luoqing had specially bought a small watering can for him to take care of his little cactus.
“Cacti don’t need to be watered too much,” Lin Luoqing had reminded him.
Lin Fei knew this. He only sprayed a certain amount every day and didn’t water it too much.
Ji Leyu watched his movements and rolled his eyes. Then he went back to his room to bring over his small cactus pot.
He put his pot next to Lin Fei’s cactus and requested sweetly, “Help me water it too.”
Lin Fei saw the dry soil in the pot. He could immediately tell that this cactus hadn’t been watered at all.
He looked at Ji Leyu in an expressionless manner and Ji Leyu was a bit puzzled. “What’s wrong?”
“You don’t like it?” Lin Fei asked him.
“No.” Ji Leyu refused to admit it. “I like it.”
It was as if it wasn’t him who previously thought the cactus was stupid.
Lin Fei pointed to the soil in the flower pot. “You haven’t watered it at all.”
Ji Leyu felt guilty. Yes, he had put this cactus pot in the corner of the table and hadn’t cared about it. After all, he really didn’t like a silly and unsightly plant like a cactus.
“I asked the teacher and the teacher said that cacti can’t be watered often. They will die if they are watered too much,” he explained with an innocent expression.
Lin Fei didn’t believe him.
It wasn’t like the first day he met Ji Leyu where he only thought that Ji Leyu was well-behaved, beautiful and cute.
He already knew what type of person Ji Leyu was.
However, Lin Fei didn’t want to say anything.
He hoped that Ji Leyu would like this pot of cactus when he gave it because on that day, he got the flower pot he wanted.
Therefore, he carefully selected a cute little cactus that was suitable for this future brother.
He hoped his brother could protect himself and hopefully have his own flower pot.
He chose this gift very sincerely and even thought that this cactus pot was small and cute, just like Ji Leyu.
It was just that Ji Leyu probably didn’t like it so he didn’t cherish it.
Lin Fei didn’t think there was anything wrong with this. This wasn’t a gift that Ji Leyu asked him for. He took the initiative to give it.
There was no need for Ji Leyu to like it just because it was given by him.
There was no reason why others should cherish it just because he gave it.
Liking couldn’t be forced so there was nothing wrong with Ji Leyu.
Lin Fei lowered his head and started to spray water on Ji Leyu’s little cactus.
He sprayed a lot, from the top of the cactus all the way to the dry soil.
Ji Leyu felt guiltier when seeing this serious expression.
After spraying the water, Lin Fei told Ji Leyu, “Just leave it here and I’ll take care it.”
Ji Leyu didn’t like it and wouldn’t take care of it. In the end, it would die. Lin Fei had chosen it after all and he didn’t want it to die because no one looked after it.
An alarm bell sounded in Ji Leyu and he picked up the pot. “This is mine. I will raise it myself.”
Lin Fei felt helpless. “You don’t want to raise it.”
“Who said I don’t want to raise it? I want to raise it.”
Lin Fei, “……”
Lin Fei’s eyes contained 30% calm, 30% speechless and 40% the words ‘do you believe in the words you said?’
Ji Leyu moved his mouth and said stubbornly, “In the future three times a day, since I eat three meals a day, I will water it three times a day. I will definitely take care of it well! ”
“A cactus can’t be watered so much. Didn’t your teacher tell you this?”
Ji Leyu, “……”
Ji Leyu pursed his lips. “Then I’ll be like you. Tell me when you water it and I’ll water it too.”
He looked at Lin Fei’s watering can. “Where did you get this from? I want one too.”
Lin Fei, “……”
Lin Fei got down from the bay window, pulled out a green watering can from the cabinet and handed it to him. “My uncle bought it for me. There is another one.”
Ji Leyu saw the outstretched hand and felt guilty.
He took the watering can and looked at Lin Fei a bit awkwardly. “I admit that I didn’t take good care of it before.”
“You didn’t ask me what I liked when you gave me flowers. I like roses and I don’t like cacti so I naturally didn’t take good care of it.” He made an excuse for himself. “Why give me a cactus? It won’t bloom and it isn’t beautiful at all. Shouldn’t you give beautiful flowers to people? How can you give a cactus?”
“It will bloom,” Lin Fei calmly told him.
Ji Leyu was shocked. “How is that possible?”
Lin Fei felt that he should really read more books. “Next time, let’s watch Plant World instead of watching Animal World.”
Ji Leyu, “……”
Here it came again! Here it came again!
Laughing at him for not reading as much!
Ji Leyu snorted fiercely in anger and glared.
Lin Fei thought he was quite cute like this, so Lin Fei smiled slightly and sat back down on the bay window.
Ji Leyu looked at him and then at the little cactus, saying sullenly, “I will take care of it.”
“So you can’t blame me.”
“I don’t blame you.”
Lin nodded and said very calmly, “Really.”
“Then will you give me anything else in the future?”
Lin Fei stared at him but didn’t speak.
Ji Leyu hurriedly walked over. “You said you didn’t blame me.”
“I don’t like giving things to others.” Lin Fei’s voice was calm.
Ji Leyu was stunned for a moment.
He said, “But you gave it to me.”
“I still don’t like giving things to others.”
The other person wouldn’t necessarily like it or cherish it, so why give it?
Lin Fei suddenly remembered that he didn’t seem to have given anything to Lin Luoqing. That day, Lin Luoqing asked him to pick a cactus pot for Ji Leyu but didn’t have Lin Fei pick one for him.
Ji Leyu sat down beside him. “I am not someone else. We live together and we’re a family.”
Lin Fei was silent.
“Continue to give it to me.” Ji Leyu looked at him, eyes containing a rare true innocence and sincerity. “I will like the gift you give me in the future. I like this cactus very much now.”
He added, “If you give me a gift, I’ll give you one as well.”
Lin Fei glanced at the emerald green small cactus in his arms and the simple red brick flower pot and was silent.
He didn’t speak and Ji Leyu felt helpless.
He also regretted it. Why hadn’t he treated his pot of cactus well from the beginning? If he knew that he and Lin Fei would have such a day, he would’ve put this pot of cactus on the table from the beginning.
Ji Leyu was a bit worried and a bit overwhelmed. He looked at the cactus in his arms for a long time before thinking of something. Then he told Lin Fei, “If I raise my cactus well and it blossoms, you should give me a gift, okay?”
His voice was soft and his amber eyes were clear and beautiful.
“I’ll give you the flowers from it and you give me the flowers from your cactus, okay?”
Lin Fei softened for a moment.
He looked at his own cactus that was quietly growing in the sun.
It was still very small and green, standing firmly in its pot.
It was the same as Ji Leyu’s cactus.
He didn’t need Ji Leyu to give him the cactus flowers but Ji Leyu’s eyes were full of expectation.
‘If I want it to blossom—’ Lin Fei thought, ‘I can look at my own flowers first.’
“Yes.” Lin Fei’s voice was low.
Ji Leyu was happy.
He proudly declared, “I will definitely raise it well and its flowers will be the most beautiful flowers in the world.”
A slight smile appeared in Lin Fei’s eyes.
JI Leyu approached him and asked, “What color is the cactus flower? What does it look like? Does it look good? Of course, anything I raise must look good.”
Lin Fei, “……”
Lin Fei sighed. He once again felt that Ji Leyu should read more books.
He left the bay window again, took out a book from the bookcase and showed him what a cactus looked like after it bloomed.
Lin Luoqing came to call them to eat and saw the two children sitting on the bay window and reading a book.
He asked curiously, “What are you looking at?”
“Uncle, do you know that cacti can bloom?” Ji Leyu asked.
Lin Luoqing nodded. “I know.”
Ji Leyu puffed out his cheeks. Okay, he was the only one who didn’t know.
“Do you want your cactus to bloom?” Lin Luoqing asked.
Ji Leyu held his cactus and nodded gently. “Once the flowers bloom, I can give them to Brother Fei Fei.”
Now Lin Luoqing really found it a bit strange.
Oh my god, what did his little Fei Fei do in a place he didn’t know? Why did Ji Leyu want to give him flowers?
Lin Luoqing turned to look at Lin Fei. Lin Fei was calm, as if he didn’t think it was a big deal.
As expected of you, you are still as cold as ever.
Awesome, my baby!
“That’s good.” Lin Luoqing smiled. “I will be waiting for your cactus to bloom.”
Ji Leyu nodded happily. “Yes.”
He happily held his cactus and went out with Lin Luoqing and Lin Fei. He learned from Lin Fei and also put his cactus on the bay window.
‘Let it get more sunshine and it should bloom earlier,’ Ji Leyu thought hopefully.
Lin Luoqing saw him like this and inexplicably felt a bit warm.
He thought that perhaps it was right that he didn’t directly challenge Ji Leyu about the Ji Xin matter.
A child who seriously hoped that flowers would bloom and thought of giving it to others showed that at least right now, he still had the temperature of the sun.
Lin Luoqing should give him and Lin Fei more time and trust. He believed that Lin Fei could guide Ji Leyu and believed that Ji Leyu could control the darkness in his heart.
He was still young and Ji Yuxiao was still here. Therefore, his world hadn’t collapsed. His bottom line and attachment to this world still existed. He might have a different and better future.
The adult Ji Leyu in the book wasn’t happy.
He had no love for the world and no attachment. Therefore, the moment he found out that he had a trace of affection for the heroine, he unscrupulously wanted her to stay by his side.
However, he didn’t love the heroine deeply so he never wronged himself. Even if the heroine saw his true self and started to fear him, he didn’t restrain his darkness.
He hadn’t loved anyone in so long and just wanted to keep this thin affection, even if it was just a little bit. However, he was destined to be unable to keep it.
In the book, Lin Fei voluntarily gave up the heroine while Ji Leyu was abandoned by the heroine.
They stood at different ends but they were full of the same and different distrust of the world.
However, they were currently just children who hadn’t grown up. Their personalities might be different from other children but they would seriously raise a pot of flowers and wait for the flowers to bloom.
They were still living in this world and hadn’t abandoned the world that had hurt them. They were innocent, immature, stumbling and expectant. They waited for tomorrow to come, waiting for the flowers in their heart to bloom.
Not every pot of cacti would bloom but Lin Luoqing hoped that their cacti could produce the most beautiful flowers.
He smiled and patted Lin Fei and Ji Leyu on the shoulders. Then he turned around and walked toward Ji Yuxiao’s study.
