TLJDFL: Chapter-23 (Part-1)


When Li Jin returned, the lights were already lit at home.

When the teenager saw Li Jin entering the door, he finally bent his tight back slightly.

After taking a bath, Li Jin returned to the room. And the little bun immediately happily smiled in the teenager’s arms.

The teenager looked at the happy child and said, “He has learned to smile at Daddy now.”

Li Jin smiled and picked up the little bun. The little bun’s face instantly became expressionless.

Li Jin, “…”

Qin Mu Wen, “???”

To make the child laugh, Li Jin hugged the little bun and teased him a few more times. 

The child always remained sullen but as soon as Li Jin returned him to the teenager’s arms, the little bun suddenly laughed.

Qin Mu Wen, “???”

Li Jin didn’t feel embarrassed in his heart. As a doctor, he knew that this was purely a newborn baby’s instinctive reaction towards his birth mother…no, in this case, towards his birth father.

But a child like his little cub, who didn’t give any face to his father, he really had seen for the first time.

Li Jin laughed and put his wet hair behind his head, and smilingly said, “He changes face fast.”

Li Jin teased and went to practice calligraphy.

Li Jin felt a bit impulsive when he wrote that ‘letter’ before, but he did not regret it.

In any case, the bad words were said by those gers’ and it was those people’s fault.

Besides, even if they were asked to apologize at that time, it wouldn’t affect their normal lives at all.

At most, it was to let them know that Qin Mu Wen was no longer something that they could afford to offend.

With this thought, Li Jin couldn’t slack off in this imperial exam and had to study hard.

Li Jin picked up the pen and began to copy the “Sacred Edict”.

Although it was dark now, it was still early to sleep. 

The little bun was also full of sleep and food and was acting like a baby in the arms of the youth.

Seeing that Little Bun didn’t give his father any face, Qin Mu Wen was worried that Li Jin would be angry.

Therefore, he stared at Li Jin’s back with some anxiety, he tried to open his mouth but didn’t know how to explain it.

Qin Mu Wen could see that Li Jin really loved this child, but the little bun, the child, really wasn’t self-aware.

This child really didn’t know who was the boss of the family and treated his father so boldly…

Before the teenager could come up with a reason, Li Jin had already finished writing “Sacred Edict”.

Li Jin stood up to take the bamboo paper from the bedside cabinet.

Li Jin said, “Come on, dad will read you “Sacred Edict”. After listening, he must know to honor his dad.”

Qin Mu Wen, “…”

This was what Li Jin said, but the person who was listening was the teenager.

Li Jin’s lips opened and closed, he didn’t read as slow as most people read.

His tone of voice had no ups and downs, and the voice was like a spring in the mountains. 

The pause after every sentence was just right. Even people who haven’t read the book would understand some of it.

Qin Mu Wen had never imagined that he would hear A’Jin’s read a book to him and the child.

Li Jin’s eyelashes were long and straight. As he lowered his eyes, his eyes looked deeper.

As Li Jin read the book for the third time, the little bun was already asleep.

Li Jin shook his head and went to copy the book again by himself.

Qin Mu Wen was completely relieved. He now knew that A’Jin didn’t have any dissatisfaction with Little Bun’s behavior.

Qin Mu Wen quietly got out of bed and went to light the wick of the oil lamp.

Qin Mu Wen had found out that Li Jin seemed to know how to do some housework, such as washing and cooking, but he didn’t pay attention to many things.

For example, if the oil lamp had been lit for a long time, the wick would soften and wouldn’t burn as bright as before.

Because of this, Li Jin would frown but he didn’t know that as long as he picked the wick, the light would brighten again.

After Qin Mu Wen finished this, he returned to the bed and started looking at Li Jin again.
