FV: Chapter 94
With Lin Luoqing by his side, Ji Yuxiao got a rare good night’s sleep.
The next morning, the alarm clock rang and Lin Luoqing reached out to turn off the alarm clock. He felt the person behind him move and hug him tightly.
Ji Yuxiao’s hands were still across his chest and his chin was on his shoulders. The blanket was warm and for a moment, Lin Luoqing didn’t want to get up early to go to work.
He held Ji Yuxiao’s hand and lay down for a short time before finally getting up.
Ji Yuxiao sensed his movement and asked him vaguely, “Are you going to the set?”
“Yes,” Lin Luoqing replied. “I have to do my makeup.”
Ji Yuxiao subconsciously hugged him tighter and rubbed against his shoulders like a spoiled dog.
Lin Luoqing boldly turned around, raised a hand and touched his head. “Be good.”
Ji Yuxiao, “……”
Ji Yuxiao silently opened his eyes. Unfortunately, there was obvious tenderness in the eyes that had just woken up so there was no lethality at all.
Lin Luoqing smiled and withdrew his hand. “Continue to sleep. I’ll just let Xiao Li send me there.”
“I’ll accompany you,” Ji Yuxiao said.
“What about the children?”
“I’ll leave them a note. In addition, isn’t there Luo Jia?”
“So you asked Luo Jia to come with you just to take care of the children?”
“Otherwise?” Ji Yuxiao took it for granted. “This is his honor. I advise him to cherish it.”
Lin Luoqing thought, ‘…As expected of you. You are as narcissistic as always.’
He sat up, got out of bed and went into the bathroom.
Ji Yuxiao sent Lin Luoqing to the set, watched him finish his makeup and sighed. “You really look like a university student.”
“It hasn’t been long since I graduated from university,” Lin Luoqing told him.
“That’s true.” Ji Yuxiao nodded. “You are still young.”
“You are young too,” Lin Luoqing told him.
Ji Yuxiao chuckled. As they were talking, Shi Zheng came over.
The steamed buns he bought for Lin Luoqing last time tasted good and Lin Luoqing really liked them. He had given a few words of praise on WeChat and Shi Zheng noted it down. It happened that he had gone with others to the steamed buns store again this morning, so he bought a few back for Lin Luoqing.
Lin Luoqing hadn’t expected Shi Zheng to buy it for him again. He quickly took it and thanked him.
Shi Zheng smiled. “You’re welcome.”
He planned to leave after this.
Lin Luoqing stopped him. He looked at Ji Yuxiao and gave an introduction. “This is my brother, Ji Yuxiao.”
Immediately afterward, he turned to Ji Yuxiao. “This is Shi Zheng.”
Shi Zheng had actually seen Ji Yuxiao a long time ago, but he was always polite. Even if he was curious about the identity of this person, he wouldn’t ask in front of Ji Yuxiao. Now that Lin Luoqing introduced them, he also looked over and said heartily, “Hello.”
Ji Yuxiao leaned back in the wheelchair and examined this person from the bottom up. He was indeed heroic and looked a bit understanding, but…
Ji Yuxiao sighed with relief. There was still a big difference compared to himself.
“Hello,” he said calmly.
Shi Zheng saw that despite being in a wheelchair and having to look up at him, the man’s eyes contained no waves. It wasn’t like he was looking up but like a person who had been in a high position for a long time looking condescendingly at him and thinking in his heart, ‘This should be a person.’
It seemed that Lin Luoqing might have a better background than he thought.
Shi Zheng didn’t think much of it. He politely greeted Ji Yuxiao and left, not staying for long.
Ji Yuxiao watched his back and asked Lin Luoqing, “He left just like that? He came here just to give you the steamed buns?”
Lin Luoqing nodded. “He is also quite busy.”
Shi Zheng was doing this to repay the favor. He was good to Shi Zheng before, causing Shi Zheng to care about him in some aspects.
However, that was it. There were no unclear aspects, let alone any thoughts to get anything from him. Therefore, Shi Zheng always came generously, walked away in a dashing manner and never rushed to do anything.
If he needed it, Shi Zheng would accompany him to practice some scenes with other actors. If he didn’t need it, Shi Zheng wouldn’t ask.
Lin Luoqing liked this type of personality. There was no pressure to get along with him so he wouldn’t feel uncomfortable.
“I haven’t talked to him about signing the contract yet. I want to tell him when he is about to leave the crew, so he can think about it after he goes back. This way, his judgment won’t be affected by seeing me every day in the crew.”
“You are saying this but as he is now, isn’t it a good thing for him that you are willing to sign him?”
“It is a good thing, but good things also need to be thought about, right? It is such a big thing and I need to give him time to think.”
Ji Yuxiao felt that he was really considerate. If it was him, he definitely wouldn’t think so much. A surprise fell from the sky but Lin Luoqing gave them time to accept and digest this surprise. He was really a very conscientious capitalist.
Ji Yuxiao sat on the set for a while. Then the other actors came to find Lin Luoqing one after another.
Wu Jia was the first one to come today. Her scene was first so she ran over after putting on makeup. She wanted to practice with Lin Luoqing in advance.
Lin Luoqing naturally wouldn’t refuse. He talked to Ji Yuxiao and went to practice with Wu Jia.
Ji Yuxiao watched them say a few words before starting. Then he turned his head quickly out of fear that he would fall asleep again.
However, he thought about it again. Didn’t he come here to see Lin Luoqing? So he turned his head back again.
Sure enough, Ji Yuxiao soon felt his eyelids becoming heavy. Lin Luoqing in his eyes became smaller and smaller, until he couldn’t be seen.
He fell asleep again.
Lin Luoqing and Wu Jia finished a rehearsal and wanted to drink some water. Then as soon as they turned around, they saw the sleeping Ji Yuxiao.
Lin Luoqing, “……”
Okay, he was used to it.
He sighed and grabbed a blanket to help cover Ji Yuxiao’s body.
Wu Jia watched while silently holding her face. No matter whether it was a brother or friend, it was a really beautiful relationship. She also wanted a brother, hehe.
Ma Bozhong happened to see this scene as he got out of the business car and walked toward his tent.
Ji Yuxiao had his face turned sideways and his body tilted. His silhouette couldn’t be seen too clearly. Ma Bozhong could only see that he was sitting in a wheelchair.
“Who is that?” Ma Bozhong asked his assistant.
“I don’t know, I’ll help you ask.”
Mo Bozhong nodded and his assistant immediately walked over.
“Is Teacher Xiao Lin busy?”
Lin Luoqing was about to start his second round of small lessons when he heard the voice of Ma Bozhong’s assistant. He looked back at him and nodded, “I have to practice with Sister Wu and then it is time to go film.”
“I see.” The assistant replied. Then he looked at the sleeping Ji Yuxiao in surprise. “This is?”
“My brother,” Lin Luoqing said with a smile. “He came to visit the set.”
As he spoke, his eyes swept over the wheelchair under Ji Yuxiao.
Lin Luoqing didn’t like others giving Ji Yuxiao such a look, so he said, “It is none of your business.”
The assistant heard his tone become tough and thought that Lin Luoqing probably didn’t want others to think his brother was miserable. He didn’t say anything else and returned to report to Ma Bozhong.
Ma Bozhong listened to his words and pondered over the word ‘brother’ in his mouth.
He didn’t know what type of brother it was. If it was his real brother, with his brother disabled, Lin Luoqing needed money and resources even more. If it was his lover brother, the fact that Lin Luoqing was willing to be with a cripple despite his young age and good looks meant it was for money or resources.
Either way, it was much easier than he thought.
He had already checked Lin Luoqing. Lin Luoqing was kicked out by his father and stepmother, who were from a small, rich family. He had no money and no rights when entering the entertainment industry. He had acted in two dramas before, but unfortunately, his acting skills were extremely poor. The company was therefore unwilling to give him resources. This year, he was inexplicably favored by Xingyi and Xingyi poached him. Lin Luoqing had probably grown up a bit after being on the bench for the past year, so his acting skills had improved a lot.
However, he had experienced the indifference of his previous company. Such a person wouldn’t feel at ease even if he was now in Xingyi. He would worry about experiencing the previous things again.
From this perspective, it wasn’t impossible for him to find a lover brother for himself so he could stabilize his treatment.
Ma Bozhong looked in the mirror. He was in good shape. He might be almost 50 but his appearance was in the 40s. He was also in good health. No matter how he looked at it, he had a better chance than his lover brother.
Therefore, it didn’t matter whether this person was Lin Luoqing’s real brother or lover brother. Ma Bozhong could give it a try.
He thought up to here and couldn’t help looking down a bit on Lin Luoqing.
He thought Lin Luoqing was a person who would be difficult to find an entry point. He hadn’t expected that Lin Luoqing might not be as clean as he thought. He actually had a gilded exterior while being shabby on the inside.
If it wasn’t for the fact that his face and temperament were really in line with his preferences, Ma Bozhong felt that he would want to give up on Lin Luoqing’s likely unclean body.
Ji Yuxiao slept soundly all morning. It was only when the sun slowly rose up high that he opened his eyes like he had slept enough.
The blanket on his body slipped down. Xiao Wang helped him pick it up and covered his legs.
Ji Yuxiao moved his shoulders and stretched his bones. He was like a plant that had just absorbed water. At this moment, he regained his spirit.
“What about Luoqing?” He asked Xiao Wang.
Xiao Wang gestured to the filming area. “He is still listening to the director. He can rest for a while after this scene.”
Ji Yuxiao looked at Lin Luoqing’s lowered, handsome side profile. He stared silently for a long time before taking out his phone.
Ji Leyu and Lin Fei had already woken up and were doing their homework under Luo Jia’s supervision.
[When will you be back?] Luo Jia asked him.
Ji Yuxiao thought about it before telling him: [I should be back soon.]
He guessed that Lin Luoqing would want to eat lunch with the two children.
Sure enough, Lin Luoqing ran up to him after filming the scene and teased him, “Yo, you woke up.”
Ji Yuxiao was in good spirits at this time, so he directly pinched Lin Luoqing’s face and pulled and pulled.
Lin Luoqing reached out to pat Ji Yuxiao’s hand and was reassured to see that his face did look much better than before.
It was estimated that he was still tired. Now that he got enough sleep, he wasn’t too ill.
“Let’s go back to eat,” he said.
“Yes.” Ji Yuxiao withdrew his hand.
Lin Luoqing pushed him and walked out.
Mo Bozhong was chatting with others when he looked up and happened to see this scene.
He secretly thought about it. In a few days when the other person was gone, he would be able to make his move.
It didn’t matter what type of brother he was. Ma Bozhong had the most basic understanding after seeing him. Ma Bozhong was suitable for taking advantage of the other person’s misery and forming a strong contrast with him.
At that time, Lin Luoqing should make the choice that suited Ma Bozhong.
Mo Bozhong smiled and continued to talk to others.
