My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 188
When Lu Lixing’s face appeared on the phone screen, Ji Qingqing turned her hand and her phone landed flat on the bed with the screen facing down.
The night was already dark and windy. What is he doing by staying up and video calling her?
Could it be that he can’t fall asleep like her?
But why did he call her if he couldn’t fall asleep?
Ji Qingqing was confused. She combed through her messy hair from the tossing and turning and picked up the phone, moving closer to the screen.
Lu Lixing was still bewildered about the sudden dark screen when half of Ji Qingqing’s face was greatly enlarged on his screen. Caught off guard, Lu Lixing jerked his head backwards, surprised by her eyes that were enlarged on the screen.
Ji Qingqing took a look at her face in the video call. After making sure that she looked fine, she nonchalantly asked, “It’s so late. Is there anything?”
Lu Lixing slightly froze.
Just then, “-zila” sounds of paws scratching against the door from outside could be heard. It was immediately followed by barking sounds that became more distant.
Lu Lixing regained his composure. “Nothing much. I just wanted to tell you that Si Si is adjusting well to the environment here and Aunt Pei likes Si Si a lot.”
“It’s great that Aunt Pei likes Si Si. It’s too late now. But if there’s a day that you aren’t busy, send me some videos of Si Si.”
Lu Lixing Mn-ed.
“How’s Grandpa’s health?”
“And Aunt Pei’s?”
“Aunt Pei’s health is also pretty good.”
Ji Qingqing nodded.
The two of them remained silent simultaneously and the atmosphere became rather awkward for a moment.
Both spoke at the same time, yet they both fell silent again.
“Is there anything else?”
Lu Lixing pondered for a bit and asked, “When are you done with the filming?”
“It’s still early into the filming. It will probably take a month and a half if everything goes well, but if the progress gets delayed, then maybe 2-3 months.”
“Two-three months… this long?”
Puzzled, Ji Qingqing asked, “Is there anything wrong?”
“Nothing. Just asking.”
Once again, their conversation came to a halt momentarily.
“You were rushing to leave today. Did something happen at the company?”
Lu Lixing nodded. “One of the projects had some issues, so I rushed back.”
“Issues? Are they serious?”
The project will affect the future development direction of the company. Of course, it was serious. Someone will try to stir up the Board of Directors and some big shareholders will form alliances to exert pressure hoping to change the company’s operations. These people came prepared and Lu Lixing was placed in a tight position.
But he didn’t intend to inform Ji Qingqing about any of this.
“It’s not serious.”
Ji Qingqing recalled that Lu Lixing’s flight was at 2 pm. Since there were some problems with the company, he probably headed there directly to handle those matters. Given his workaholic attitude, he would have just gotten back home to rest. It will be 11 pm soon. Why was he still not asleep with all the travel fatigue and the exhaustion from his continuous workload?
“Are you still doing your work now?”
Lu Lixing glanced over at the files next to him. “En, there are still some company matters that I have to take care of.”
“Then did I distract you from working?”
“No, I needed some rest anyway.”
Ji Qingqing nodded.
“How was your filming today?”
“It was ok. It went on pretty smoothly. We filmed another scene after you left and we only refilmed it twice.” Once Ji Qingqing mentioned this, her face beamed with joy. She added, “Did you know that Director Zhou complimented me today? He said that I have the potential and the talent to act. So long as I put in the effort, I can definitely act in a movie as the sole main lead someday.”
“Really? Are you sure that Director Zhou didn’t say it to flatter you?’
“Why would he flatter me? Director Zhou is not someone who would care about how others feel. He even yelled at Sister Jingyun when she made a mistake.”
“True. He wouldn’t praise you for no reason if you had no talent. Not bad. Keep it up.”
Ji Qingqing laughed. Suddenly she thought of something and looked at Lu Lixing with a secretive look on her face. Inching closer to the screen she whispered, “Did you know? I learned a big scoop about Sister Jingyun today!
Lu Lixing raised his eyebrows. “What big scoop?”
“Sister Jingyun has a boyfriend! I accidentally saw her message today…” Ji Qingqing immediately explained, “But don’t get me wrong. I just happened to see it by accident. I was studying my script and a text message popped out on her screen and I saw it.”
