FV: Chapter 5

Ji Yuxiao: !!!

Ji Yuxiao almost spat out a mouthful of water.

Who made you call me husband?

Did I let you call me husband?

You’re welcome!

Not reserved at all!

No shame!

He helplessly replied to Lin Luoqing: [It is better to call me Brother.]

Lin Luoqing felt this person was quite picky to be so tangled up over a name. Still, who let this person be the thick thigh he was going to hold? So a brother was a brother.

He did as he was told. [Brother~]

Ji Yuxiao saw this soul-destroying wave and felt that this person wasn’t ashamed at all.

Lin Luoqing asked again: [So when will I go to you tomorrow?]

Ji Yuxiao thought about it and replied to him: [Around 2 o’clock in the afternoon.]

[Yes.] Lin Luoqing responded.

It just so happened that after he finished meeting Ji Yuxiao, he could stop by to pick up Lin Fei from school. There was no delay.

After replying to the message, he heard movement from outside the door and walked out. He found that Lin Fei had entered the bathroom and was preparing to take a bath by himself.

“Are you going to take a bath?” He asked Lin Fei.

Lin Fei nodded and ran the bath water in a familiar manner.

Lin Luoqing saw this and quickly walked to his side, saying positively, “Uncle will help you wash.”

Lin Fei’s expression was calm. “I will wash myself.”

Lin Luoqing couldn’t miss any opportunity to increase their intimacy. He bent down and touched the child’s head. “The feeling of washing yourself or being washed by your uncle isn’t the same. You will feel it today. Don’t pay money if you’re not comfortable.”

Lin Fei, “……”

“Of course, it doesn’t cost anything if you are comfortable.”

Lin Fei, “……”

Lin Luoqing saw that the water was almost done so he turned off the water and prepared to help Lin Fei undress.

Lin Fei was startled and quickly said, “I will take it off myself.”

He raised his hand to take off his short sleeved shirt and trousers. Then he stepped into the bathtub and obediently sat in the position where he usually sat.

Lin Luoqing rolled up his sleeves, crouched down next to the bathtub and started to bathe him.

“I will send you to school tomorrow morning?” He asked Lin Fei while washing. “I’ll also pick you up from school in the afternoon.”

Lin Fei felt it was unnecessary. “I can do it myself.”

“You are still a child. It isn’t safe for you to go to and from school alone. It is better for Uncle to pick you up.”

As he said this, he suddenly remembered that Lin Fei didn’t know about his marriage to Ji Yuxiao.

Don’t blame him. Initially when he transmigrated, he didn’t remember at all that Lin Fei was still a child at this time and living with the original owner. So in order to survive, he could only choose the road of marriage.

After returning home and seeing  Lin Fei as a child, he was busy saving himself. How could he still remember the marriage?

Confusion had created the current situation.

Lin Luoqing was a bit weak-hearted for a moment and he couldn’t help his voice softening. “By the way, Uncle has one thing to say to you.”

Lin Fei turned to look at him as if there were some doubts.

Lin Luoqing smiled and said calmly, “I might be about to get married.”

Lin Fei, ‘Huh?’

“Get married?”

“Of course, I am still thinking about it. Mainly, it concerns you so you have to agree. If you don’t agree then I won’t get married.”

So baby, agree okay?

Lin Luoqing tried to persuade Lin Fei. “Here is the thing. I am at the age to get married…”

“You are only 22,” Lin Fei said calmly.

“Yes, it is the legal age of marriage. It is time to get married.”

Lin Fei, “……”

Lin Fei turned to look at him with 30% disbelief, 40% contempt and 30% ‘if you say so’ in his eyes.

Lin Luoqing could only raise the corners of his lips and smile awkwardly but politely. He continued to coax the child. “In fact, the person I am marrying is very good.”

The book said that Ji Yuxiao was cold and noble, cloudy and temperamental. However, after making contact with him today, Ji Yuxiao didn’t raise a hand despite the original owner’s words. It could be seen that he was still very restrained and cultured. As long as he didn’t commit domestic violence then everything else didn’t matter.

“In addition, he has a child who is around the same age as you. You can play together.”

Lin Fei seemed somewhat interested when he heard this. “He also has a child?”

“Yes, it is a little boy as well. It is just…” Lin Luoqing said this and he couldn’t help feeling weak again. “The child might be a bit more fierce.”

“Fierce?” Lin Fei was confused.

Could he not be fierce?

The original owner might’ve humiliated Ji Yuxiao but it wasn’t to the point of marrying a dog! In addition, letting his friends and family watch! If they couldn’t come then he would broadcast it live to them! Could this be done by ordinary people?

Compared with him, the cold-faced Lin Fei was simply an angelic being.

“In any case, I heard he might be more fierce but you don’t have to be afraid. I am your uncle. If he dares to bully you, I will let his father teach him. In short, I won’t let you suffer losses.”

Lin Fei didn’t quite believe it but Lin Luoqing nodded firmly. “Really. You should believe in your uncle.”

Lin Fei raised an eyebrow as if to ask him, ‘Do you think you are trustworthy?’

Lin Luoqing, “……”

Lin Luoqing raised a hand to wipe his face and close his suspicious eyes.

“So are you willing?” He asked with some uncertainty.

In this case, it was normal if Lin Fei wasn’t willing. He and the original owner originally had a bad relationship. Now the original owner wanted to get married and the marriage partner had a child. The child also wasn’t a good child. Which child would be willing? Lin Luoqing was thinking this when he heard Lin Fei’s calm voice.

“I don’t care.”

Lin Luoqing, “????”

“Would you like to?”

“Hmm.” Lin Fei answered calmly.

Lin Luoqing was overjoyed. He put his arms around Lin Fei’s neck and started to kiss his face. “Fei Fei, you are really great. Uncle loves you. You are really the most considerate baby in the world~”

Lin Fei avoided it in disgust but he couldn’t avoid it. He could only be helplessly hugged and kissed by Lin Luoqing several times.

It really didn’t matter. Lin Luoqing was the one getting married, not him. In any case, they would be separated in the future. It didn’t matter who Lin Luoqing married. He would just live here with Lin Luoqing for a while. Once he grew up and knew more about the world, he would leave.

He was just surprised that someone like Lin Luoqing would have someone willing to marry him. Even so, this had nothing to do with him. He was only surprised for a short time and he didn’t really care.

Lin Luoqing saw that Lin Fei had no opinion and the worry in his heart was finally put down. He helped Lin Fei apply shower gel while reassuring him, “Even if I get married, you are my most important person. I will definitely be good to you. Your future aunt will also be good to you.”

Lin Fei let out a cold ‘hmm’ and didn’t show much emotion.

Lin Luoqing felt that Lin Fei probably had a bad relationship with the original owner and didn’t dare express too many views on his marriage. Thus, he didn’t continue this topic.

He had just transmigrated and it was really unrealistic for Lin Fei to abandon his dissatisfaction with the original owner and kiss and cuddle him within half a day.

He only needed to slowly let Lin Fei change his opinion of him. It would be good for Lin Fei to accept him and like him in the future.

Lin Luoqing helped the child wash the foam on his body. Then he picked up Lin Fei, grabbed a towel to wipe him down and helped him put on pajamas.

He carried Lin Fei back to the room, put him on the bed and told him, “I’ll go take a shower. Then I’ll come and sleep with you in a bit.”

Lin Fei. “????”

Lin Fei felt that this really wasn’t needed!

“I can sleep by myself.”

“It’s fine. Uncle can tell you stories if I sleep with you.”

Lin Fei, “……”

He didn’t want to hear stories.

He didn’t draw a fan-shaped chart in his eyes this time but they were full of rejection. It was just that Lin Luoqing didn’t see it. He rubbed the little head and said gently, “You play by yourself. Your uncle will come over in a moment.”

Lin Fei, “……”

Lin Fei watched him stand up and walk out of the bedroom. He covered his eyes with one hand and his heart was full of helplessness.

Why do you have to come here?

I really don’t need you to come over!

Don’t come here!

Lin Fei lay on the bed and felt that his heart was really too tired.

Lin Luoqing quickly finished taking a shower and returned to Lin Fei’s bedroom.

Lin Fei hadn’t fallen asleep yet. He was lying on the bed and reading a book.

He was reading the ‘Idiom Story’ with pinyin. Lin Luoqing saw it and suddenly thought of something. He walked over and lay down beside Lin Fei. “Uncle will tell you a story.”

Lin Fei turned to look at him, eyes full of the words, ‘Are you really going to sleep with me tonight?’

Lin Luoqing’s answer was a yes. “Of course, Baby.”

Lin Fei, “……”

Lin Fei gave up in his heart.

He closed the book, lay down under the quilt and closed his eyes.

Lin Luoqing originally wanted to tell a story but he was too sleepy. He had just opened his mouth when he yawned. He also gave up and planned to tell it tomorrow.

He reached over and kissed Lin Fei on the cheek. “Good night. Fei Fei, have good dreams.”

‘I hope so,’ Lin Fei thought.

“It is better to dream of Uncle~” Lin Luoqing added.

…Then it probably wouldn’t be a good dream.

Lin Luoqing closed his eyes, hugged the child in his arms and slowly fell asleep.

He had a very long dream. There were many people in his dream such as a weak mother, a serious father, a gentle sister and a sensible Lin Fei. In addition, all types of other people kept appearing in his dreams.

It wasn’t until the next morning when Lin Fei’s bedside alarm clock rang and Lin Luoqing raised a hand to help turn it off that he discovered in a trance that he seemed to have the memories of the original owner.

The veil was finally lifted over these shadowy memories and entered his mind.

It was strange but it also gave him a rough understanding of the past of the original owner.

Lin Luoqing sorted out some of the memories. Then he didn’t think too much about it after seeing that Lin Fei had sat up and started to change his clothes. He helped Lin Fei prepare breakfast and sent him to school.

He went home to rest for a while, ate a meal and headed to Ji Yuxiao’s house.

At this time, Ji Yuxiao was reading a book. He heard a knock on the door and said, “Enter.” Then he saw the person he had been thinking about repeatedly all morning.

“I came.” Lin Luoqing smiled.

He smiled very beautifully. It was warm and bright like the afternoon sun. Ji Yuxiao saw it and felt that the other person was really someone who couldn’t be understood by himself.

Still, that wasn’t the point. The point was that he now had to see if it was really a coincidence when he fell asleep last night or if it had anything to do with Lin Luoqing.

“Sit,” Ji Yuxiao said politely.

Lin Luoqing sat down on the sofa not far away and said positively, “Should we talk about marriage today?”

This was really… he never forgot his own personality.

Ji Yuxiao silently commented in his heart before replying, “That’s right. However, don’t be in a rush. Let’s talk about your career first.”

Career?

Lin Luoqing was a bit confused. “Talk about what?”

“You are an actor right?” Ji Yuxiao asked politely.

“Yes.”

“How is your acting?”

“I think it is okay,” Lin Luoqing answered modestly.

“I’ll check it.” Ji Yuxiao leaned back slightly and rested against the back of the chair.

??? What did this mean? He hadn’t even filmed in this world and he had to act on the spot?

“You can choose a familiar scene to perform. If you need the lines, I can print them out for you.” Ji Yuxiao gave the solution.

It was really a live performance.

If you say this then I’m not sleepy!

Lin Luoqing immediately came to his senses. He stood up and moved his shoulders, ready to start his performance time!

“What style do you like?” He took the initiative to ask. “Implicit forbearance? Emotional outbursts? Fresh literature? Or a blank space? You can choose one and I can do it.”

Ji Yuxiao didn’t expect that this would be a multiple choice question. He thought for a moment before answering, “Implicit forbearance.”

After all, yesterday’s emotional dream was really enough dog blood.

Lin Luoqing gave him an ‘okay’ gesture and turned around to gather his emotions. Then he turned back with an already miserable look.

His face was white and transparent. He looked fragile and vulnerable. His brow was slightly furrowed and his eyes were sad and tearful. He looked at Ji Yuxiao, wanting to say something only to stop.

Ji Yuxiao couldn’t help nodding, secretly thinking that this did have some of the meaning.

“You… what do you mean by that?” Lin Luoqing whispered.

His tone was soft and slow, as if he had been wronged and he didn’t know what to say. “You are like this. I… what can I do?”

This was a scene he had auditioned before and he was a poor and fragile young master. He liked it but he wasn’t selected. At this time, Lin Luoqing could still remember most of his lines and how he didn’t mean his words.

Ji Yuxiao watched and slowly felt as if he couldn’t hear what the other person was saying.

He involuntarily closed his eyes but he didn’t want to be discovered by Lin Luoqing. He used the last of his willpower to raise his right hand.

Therefore, when the tears in Lin Luoqing’s eyes finally fell and he looked at Ji Yuxiao after ending this scene, he was surprised to find his fiance was bowing his head and holding his forehead in his hand in a contemplative pose.

This… was his acting skills so poor that he pained the eyes of his future husband?

No, he wasn’t that bad was he?

Yet if that wasn’t the case, how could Ji Yuxiao have this awkward pose?

“I… didn’t I act well?” Lin Luoqing asked hesitantly.

Ji Yuxiao was silent because he was asleep.

Lin Luoqing saw that this person didn’t answer and thought Ji Yuxiao was thinking about how to reply to himself euphemistically. He immediately rushed to say, “Then I will repeat it. I will change the way I act this time so it is more subtle!”

Ji Yuxiao continued to sleep.

Lin Luoqing turned around, sighed and gathered up his emotions again. He faced Ji Yuxiao and started a new round of performance.

This time, in addition to performing the young master’s sadness and forbearance, he also performed his stubbornness and simplicity. There was no problem!

Lin Luoqing confidently prepared to be met with praise only to find that Ji Yuxiao still had the appearance of a troubled contemplator.

…No way!

Was he really bad at acting?!

No, it shouldn’t be!

Could it be that the previous directors who praised him for being good at acting but lacking luck and resources were actually being perfunctory?

No!

Lin Luoqing looked at the man in front of him who didn’t know how to open his mouth and felt his confidence falling. “Just say it if you want to say anything. I can bear it.”

Ji Yuxiao continued to be on standby.

Lin Luoqing became more and more worried. “Really, Brother. You don’t have to worry. I will definitely accept it with an open mind and listen carefully to the audience’s suggestions.

Ji Yuxiao was still on standby.

Lin Luoqing saw that this person hadn’t spoken the entire time and couldn’t help wondering, ‘Is it so difficult to open his mouth? How bad am I?’

He stared at Ji Yuxiao curiously and finally sensed that something was wrong. He bypassed the desk and walked to Ji Yuxiao’s side. “Brother?”

He saw that Ji Yuxiao was sleeping soundly and his breathing was even.

Lin Luoqing, “…………”

The author has something to say:

President Ji: Sleep is so fragrant, so comfortable~~~

Lin Luoqing, “……”
