My Wife is My Life! - Chapter 233
“It wasn’t much. Just some groundless rumors. Wasn’t there an occasion where Lixing gave you 99 roses? Everyone else said that it was gifted by Shuyi. Later on, I heard that when you went to the filming city to film, higher-ups of the company followed and at that time, Shuyi also happened to be on a business trip, so I ended up misunderstanding it.”
Hearing Lin Zhen recount those matters, Ji Qingqing’s face turned red. “It’s good that the misunderstanding has been cleared. My matters caused trouble for President Chen. I’m really sorry for this.”
“No worries, it’s all over. Did you know how surprised I was when I first listened to Shuyi’s explanation? The three of us were all old classmates and Lu Lixing, that guy, giving a girl 99 roses? To add on, he, himself, is a workaholic and there were instances where he worked continuously for a couple of days. The scenario was too unlikely so at that time I thought Shuyi was using Lixing as an excuse.”
Saying that Lin Zhen looked at Lu Lixing and teased him, “Lu Lixing, quite impressive ah! You secretly managed to get yourself a wife. That year both of us and a couple of classmates betted on when you would finally acquire some sense and get married. And from the looks of it now, we all lost the bet. But I’m rather curious, how did the two of you end up together?”
Ji Qingqing subconsciously glanced at Lu Lixing and noticed that his gaze was locked onto her.
“The car accident that time.”
Lin Zhen instantly understood.
“When I went to the hospital to visit you, the doctors all said that your injuries were serious and that if you survived this ordeal without dying, you would be bound to have good fortune in the future. Looks like that fortune of yours is Ji Qingqing. How lucky.”
Lu Lixing sighed gloomily. “Luck? It’s already good enough if she doesn’t get mad at me.”
Ji Qingqing glared at him.
Lin Zhen laughed. “Don’t couples always quarrel? At the start, Shuyi also always pissed me off. Luckily, I’m tolerant and I don’t kick a fuss over this with him.”
Chen Shuyi bent his head and pecked Lin Zhen’s forehead. “Thank you for not being petty with me.”
Lin Zhen half laid in his arms and smiled contently.
The program hadn’t even started and they were already beginning to be lovey-dovey with each other.
“Seeing the two behave like this now, I presume the next five of days should be able to get filmed smoothly. Qingqing, this should also be your first time participating in this kind of program. There’s no need to be nervous. Actually, this program is nothing much. It just films our daily life. We can just behave like how we usually do at home.”
“Five days?” Ji Qingqing was slightly surprised. “Why is it five days? Wasn’t the program supposed to last for three days?”
“You don’t know about this?” Chen Shuyi questioned back and ignored the gaze Lu Lixing was directing at him. “At the start, there were guests that left at the last minute so Director Wang asked me to invite Lixing to settle this emergency. Lixing requested to change the filming time to five days as his condition before accepting Director Wang’s invitation to attend.”
“Ke Ke——” Lu Lixing gave two low coughs and clarified, “Director Wang is the program’s director. The program’s schedule has already been decided prior to this. Why would he change the entire schedule for me alone?”
Hearing Lu Lixing’s clarification, Chen Shuyi appeared to have finally got it. He suddenly exclaimed, “Yes… Yes! That’s right, Director Wang probably should have his own reasons for doing this.”
Ji Qingqing nodded her head as if she had somewhat understood. She looked at Lu Lixing and smiled. “So that was the case. I see.”
Lu Lixing instinctively wanted to take a teacup from the coffee table to hide his awkward expression, but the coffee table was empty. It had nothing at all. He glanced at Chen Shuyi and his wife. “Do the both of you want something to drink?”
Chen Shuyi smiled. “No need.”
“Alright then. Since the both of you aren’t drinking anything, we’ll end it here today.” Lu Lixing stood up, appearing like he wanted to send them out. “Let’s stop chatting. You two should also head back and rest first.”
Chen Shuyi: “…”
