Ji Yuxiao heard the knock on the door so he gave one last piece of advice before hanging up the phone.
Lin Luoqing walked in and told him, “It is time to eat.”
“Okay.” Ji Yuxiao put away his phone and pushed the wheelchair forward.
He had never been a hesitant person. Now that he doubted his father, Ji Yuxiao wouldn’t pretend he didn’t see it and choose to escape.
In just a day’s work, he had already arranged several people to check on Father Ji’s affairs.
It was just that his father was an old fox. He couldn’t guarantee how much and how long it would take to find out this information without letting him discover it.
Nevertheless, Ji Yuxiao wasn’t in a hurry. As long as it was a fox, the fox’s tail will be revealed eventually. Ji Yuxiao was already prepared for the worst so there was naturally nothing to be afraid of.
Ji Yuxiao felt sad. He never thought that he would doubt his father one day and that his father would make him feel doubts. Such a father-son relationship made him feel pitiful and pathetic.
Then his emotions soon subsided. He exited the study with Lin Luoqing like nothing happened and headed toward the elevator.
Ji Leyu saw him coming from a distance and asked him, “Dad, do you know that cacti can bloom flowers?”
“I know.” Ji Yuxiao smiled. “Why are you suddenly asking me about this?”
Ji Leyu pouted in a childish manner. “It is because I’m the only one at home who doesn’t know it.”
Mrs Zhang laughed when she heard this. “Xiao Yu just asked me if I knew this.”
Lin Luoqing also laughed. “He asked me as well.”
Ji Leyu, “……”
Ji Leyu’s little face puffed up.
Ji Yuxiao was amused by him. “Why do you suddenly care about whether cacti can bloom or not?”
“Brother Fei Fei said that it can grow flowers. I didn’t know this and thought you didn’t know either.”
“It is normal for you not to know. You are young. You will know more once you grow up.” Ji Yuxiao sat down in his seat.
“But Brother Fei Fei knows.” Ji Leyu sulked.
“Did you ask Fei Fei how he knows?”
Ji Leyu, “……”
“How do you know, Fei Fei?” Lin Luoqing asked him.
“It said it in a book,” Lin Fei calmly replied.
Ji Yuxiao nodded and looked at Ji Leyu. “Did you hear that? It said it in a book.”
Ji Leyu, “……”
“So you still need to read more.” Ji Yuxiao educated him.
Ji Leyu, “……”
Okay, he shouldn’t have asked.
Ji Leyu snorted and lowered his head to eat.
Lin Luoqing and Ji Yuxiao smiled and also started to eat.
After the meal, Ji Leyu and Lin Fei went back to their rooms to do homework and read books.
Lin Luoqing also returned to his and Ji Yuxiao’s bedroom. He was about to play a mobile phone game but the moment he turned it on, there was an incoming call. It was Chen Feng’s number.
That was when Lin Luoqing remembered. Yes, Chen Feng and the original owner’s cheap father planned to rely on his and Ji Yuxiao’s marriage to climb the big tree that was the Ji family. Now they knew he had received the certificate so it was time to disturb him.
He picked up the call, walked to the balcony and asked lazily, “What is it?”
“You and Ji Yuxiao got the certificate?” Chen Feng cut to the chase.
“Then when will you come back to see your parents?”
“Wait a while.” Lin Luoqing replied in a perfunctory manner. “You should know that Ji Yuxiao is moody and uncertain right now. He doesn’t want to see anyone other than me.”
“Who are you calling someone other than you? We are your parents! I heard them say that Ji Yuxiao likes you. Can’t you persuade him?”
Lin Luoqing snorted. ‘We are your parents.’ When the original owner and Lin Luoxi were kicked out, why didn’t they remember that they were parents?
It was really ridiculous.
He deliberately sighed. “Isn’t the problem that he likes me?”
“What do you mean?”
“He likes me so he feels that you and my father abused me. This means he doesn’t want to go back and see you. I persuaded and talked to him but he won’t listen.”
Chen Feng persuaded him. “In this world, there are only unfilial children in the world. How can there be parents who make mistakes? Weren’t we doing it for your own good? Could he marry you without the two of us?”
“Yes.” Lin Luoqing was heartbroken. “I also told him this but he didn’t listen. He is too stubborn.”
“You can solve this matter.” Chen Feng acted compassionate. “Luo Luo, don’t say that I didn’t remind you. Your father still remembers you well right now. He knows that it isn’t easy for you to marry Ji Yuxiao in place of Xiao Jing and feels sorry for you. He is willing to recognize you home. If you don’t hurry up and cherish it, be careful that this isn’t your last chance!”
Lin Luoqing, “……”
Lin Luoqing saw that Ji Yuxiao had sat on the bed at some point and hurriedly walked over to sit beside him.
Ji Yuxiao just thought he wanted to take the phone call in a different place. Unexpectedly, he saw Lin Luoqing turn on the speaker mode of the phone and shouted, “What are you doing? Don’t grab my phone!”
Ji Yuxiao, “……”
He looked at Lin Luoqing suspiciously.
Lin Luoqing moved his mouth without making a sound. He just mouthed, ‘Play along with me.’
Ji Yuxiao raised an eyebrow. What trick was this person playing?
Chen Feng wondered, “Luo Luo?”
Lin Luoqing signaled for Ji Yuxiao to speak up. Then he picked up a pen and paper and started to write on the post-it note.
Ji Yuxiao, “……”
Ji Yuxiao had to cooperate. “It is me.”
Chen Feng was stunned for a moment when she heard his voice. She instantly made a false laugh. “It is you, Xiao Ji.”
“I don’t know you that well.” Ji Yuxiao’s voice was cold.
Then he saw Lin Luoqing tear off a post-it note and show it to him.
Ji Yuxiao looked at the words on it and smiled. Then he read it accordingly, “Do you have a mirror at home?”
Chen Feng, “???”
“Go and take a photo. It must be the same as the moon during the Mid-Autumn Festival.”
Chen Feng, “????”
“It is round and big! Mainly, it is big!”
Chen Feng, “……”
Chen Feng finally realized that this person was saying she had a big face and instantly became angry. However, she didn’t dare to lose her temper at Ji Yuxiao.
She could only grit her teeth and smile. “Is Luo Luo next to you? Can you give him the phone?”
Ji Yuxiao was about to say something but Lin Luoqing interrupted him, “Give it to me. Don’t grab my phone.”
He explained into the phone, “Sorry, Auntie. He just snatched my phone. Are you okay? He doesn’t talk very well but don’t mind it. After all, he is so rich.”
Of course, Chen Feng couldn’t care about Ji Yuxiao so she could only take her temper out on Lin Luoqing. “In any case, I have already reminded you. You can come back if you want or not. I don’t want you to come back. If you hadn’t acted like a pug before and ran home every day to let your father recognize you back, I wouldn’t have been kind enough to remind you of this. Kindness really isn’t rewarded! You deserve to have your father dislike you!”
Ji Yuxiao’s expression darkened instantly.
Lin Luoqing pretended to be wrong. “It isn’t that I don’t want to come back. He won’t let me come back. What can I do? He has such a bad temper now and I don’t dare to talk back him.”
It was while writing quickly.
Then once he finished writing, he started shouting again. “Ji Yuxiao, what are you doing? I’m on the phone!”
JI Yuxiao who didn’t do anything, “……”
Ji Yuxiao who was silently watching the play, “……”
Lin Luoqing handed him the post-it note. Ji Yuxiao grabbed it and started to read the new lines. “How can you say such a thing? You are really shameless. Weren’t you the one who caused it when Luoqing was kicked out by his father? This time, you are pretending to be a good person. You are actually the big bad wolf pretending to be Little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother! How can you treat yourself as a human?!”
“You!” Chen Feng was so angry that she couldn’t speak!
“What are you? Don’t call Luoqing in the future or I will be annoyed.”
Ji Yuxiao finished speaking and hung up the phone at Lin Luoqing’s gesture.
Chen Feng looked at the phone that was suddenly hung up and pinched it fiercely in anger. Then she took the phone and went to find Father Ji. She cried and told him that Lin Luoqing bullied her. Of course, she just cried dryly and there were no actual tears. After all, she still hadn’t practiced crying.
Ji Yuxiao returned the phone to Lin Luoqing and heard Lin Luoqing applaud him in an exaggerated manner. “Good acting. Brother, your lines are so good!”
“Why didn’t you just tell her yourself?” Ji Yuxiao wondered.
“I can’t. I have to pretend to be a little white flower so that I can proceed with the next step.”
“The next step?” Ji Yuxiao was curious. What was the next step?
Originally, there wasn’t such a thing. However, Chen Feng was so obsessed with him that he had to have one now.
After all, the original owner was Father Lin’s own son and Lin Fei was his grandson. The original owner’s mother was Lin Fei’s grandmother and the original wife who accompanied Father Lin to make a fortune.
In the end, the original wife died and the mistress entered through the door. The original owner and his sister were kicked out and Father Lin didn’t give them any of his property.
Lin Luoxi took away only part of the inheritance left to her by their mother and the money she had saved since she was a child.
Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been wiped out by the original owner so quickly.
Since Chen Feng wanted to contact him, he would allow her and Father Lin, a scumbag, to become a pair of qualified ATMs.
Lin Luoqing thought about it. He didn’t want this money. He would keep it all for Lin Fei. It was just enough for Lin Fei to start a business in the future.
He was the real Lin family, Lin Luoxi’s son, Father Lin’s grandson and the most suitable person to own the Lin family’s property.
Lin Luoqing sorted out his words a bit. He didn’t reveal that he wasn’t the original owner. He just said that he hadn’t understood back then and spent too much of Lin Luoxi’s money. Now that he wanted money from the Lin family, he should naturally give it to Lin Fei. This could be regarded as making up for the mistake of his past.
Ji Yuxiao listened to his words and felt sorry for him again.
“At that time, you were still young and suddenly suffered such a big change. I don’t blame you for this and I believe your sister didn’t blame you either.”
That was natural. How could Lin Luoxi blame the original owner? She had become like a mother to the original owner and she was as tolerant of him as her son.
Lin Luoqing really didn’t want to hear him making excuses for the original owner.
He didn’t like the original owner. Obviously, Father Lin threw him out with Lin Luoxi but he still wanted to run back and beg Father Lin to let him go home.
This was why Chen Feng would remind him again and again that Father Lin was now willing to recognize him, as if it was such a great gift.
It was ridiculous.
He treated Lin Fei badly while acting submissively to his father.
Bullying the weak and fearing the strong. What a heartless and cowardly thing.\
