My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 149
As Lu Lixing was just an arm’s length away from her, the distance between them was very short. Ji Qingqing could almost feel his breath on her. Her heart started beating rapidly. She could feel every inch of her body’s muscles tensing and quivering. In an attempt to shield herself, she grabbed the script and held it in front of her chest. Her eyes wandered uneasily as she looked at him nervously.
When one feels guilty, this is generally the way they will act.
——“One minute left.”
Lu Lixing looked down and noticed Ji Qingqing’s uneasy and flustered gaze.
The tips of her ears were bright red, tempting one to bite down. His eyes darkened and his throat moved.
“I… Earlier, I actually was…”
He bent over and whispered in Ji Qingqing’s ears, “Baby, I also love you.”
The thick script slipped from Ji Qingqing’s hands, and landed on Lu Lixing’s feet.
“Ah?” Ji Qingqing blurted, she felt that she misheard him.
——“Response is a success, life point +1. Current life points are worth 4 hours.”
——“Daily mission progress 1/3, life point +1. Current life points are worth 5 hours.”
The next minute, Ji Qingqing finally reacted.
I also love you? Lu Lixing couldn’t have misunderstood that I like him, right?
Instantly, Ji Qingqing’s face turned crimson again. Her toes curled helplessly in her slippers from the embarrassment.
“No no no…No, it’s not what you’re thinking, You…you you you listen to me, I was just mem-memorising the lines. If you don’t believe me, I can show you!”
She suddenly bent down to grab the script that had fallen on the floor, intending to show him that dialogue. But, as she was too anxious, when she bent, her head directly collided with Lu Lixing’s chin.
Ji Qingqing heard that gasp of pain and immediately looked up. Her head collided with Lu Lixing’s chin once again.
Ji Qingqing saw Lu Lixing covering his chin with his hand with his brows furrowed. She immediately apologized, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, are you okay?”
“I’m fine.” Lu Lixing replied.
He lowered his hand, his chin was obviously red.
”Do you want me to get some medicinal oil for you?”
“I’m really fine.” Lu Lixing’s gaze fell on the script in her hands. “What were you saying just now?”
Ji Qingqing immediately flipped to the page with that dialogue and showed him. “Earlier I was practicing this dialogue, It doesn’t… It doesn’t mean… I like you, don’t misunderstand.”
“The dialogue contains someone called ‘Lu Lixing’?”
“…No, I got momentarily excited and imagined you as the drama’s main character.”
Hearing that, Lu Lixing glanced at the script and spotted these two sentences, ‘You ungrateful, cruel, shameless bastard!’ and ‘Lu Lixing do you even have a conscience?’ He narrowed his eyes and asked, “I am this kind of person?”
Ji Qingqing was stunned for a second. Soon after, she responded and shook her head. “No!”
Knowing she did it for the sake of rehearsing, Lu Lixing decided not to give her a difficult time.
Ji Qingqing clutched his sleeve. She was still too embarrassed to face him directly. Lowering her gaze nervously, she asked in a soft voice, “You didn’t misunderstand, right?”
Ji Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief.
It’s a good thing that he didn’t misunderstand her.
“Are you rehearsing your lines?” Lu Lixing took the script from her hands and flipped through it with interest. “Do you need my help?”
Ji Qingqing immediately shook her head.
You must be joking. After that screw-up earlier, how could she still ask him for help?
“I’m going to find Wen Rou.”
“Since I’m here, why don’t you ask me instead of her?” He walked towards the sofa located at the side of the bed and sat down. “Let’s continue, starting from this line, Why do you not love me, what does she have that I don’t?.”
Ji Qingqing didn’t reply.
Lu Lixing raised his eyes and looked at her. “I heard that Director Zhou scolded the crew today. Do you also want to end up getting scolded publicly and lose face tomorrow?”
