The mountain closest to the abyss was not inhabited by demons. It was full of moss-covered jagged rocks, with some sparse grass growing here and there. The whole place looked very barren and lifeless. If not for a demon who accidentally noticed when passing by this place, the Duanping residents probably would still be ignorant about the abnormality in the abyss.
The branches and leaves on a single tree in the courtyard shook silently with the wind. On the gray-brown branches, yellowed dead leaves shook the most. After a while, the leaves were separated from the branches and fell gracefully on the ground.
Since that day, Lu Yaoyao had two more fun. One was to learn using the wooden sword with Father, and the other was to learn the whip with Daddy. Lu Yaoyao was extremely happy to have Father and Daddy playing with her every day, but after a few days, the novelty wore off, and she felt that the practices were no longer as fun as before. Thinking that her friends should have finished their punishment, Lu Yaoyao promptly abandoned her two old fathers and rushed out to find other cubs.
“The road of cultivation is long and insipid. You must have a high determination and be able to bear what ordinary people can’t bear. Your heart must be firm, to be able to press forward with an indomitable will…” His daughter took the initiative to learn swordsmanship, which greatly pleased Yao Jiuxiao. His effort these past few days to subtly influence the child’s curiosity was not in vain. However, he didn’t immediately teach sword moves to her. Instead, he began with a basic lesson of cultivation.
Lu Yaoyao felt that she was the most pitiful cub, and tears began to fall from her eyes. “Do you have another cub, so you now dislike me?”
“What makes you think so? Who told you this messy nonsense?” Lu Qingyu was furious. If he caught out whoever dared to talk nonsense in front of his daughter, he would make them regret being born in this world!
The wooden house illuminated by several luminous pearls was as bright as day. On the corner of the main room, a small red dumpling stood motionless, facing the wall with head hanging down.
Even from her back figure, it could be seen that she was an adorable little girl.
The cubs had never learned to hunt before. They only knew to utilize the demonic aura in their body to make themselves more agile. When the mutant beast rushed in, they screamed and ran away in all directions.
Lu Yaoyao wanted to run too, but the beast was very close and ran directly towards her. She had no time to run. After Song Xiaoqi ran away, he looked back and saw Lu Yaoyao stood blankly in the place. In an instant, the little squirrel quickly turned around and rushed over like a cannonball. His head rammed hard, but only managed to deflected the beast’s trajectory a bit. But it gave Lu Yaoyao enough chance to hurriedly escape from the beast’s open mouth.
Duanping’s cubs usually played on the mountain where they lived, but occasionally, they would also run over to nearby mountains. Cangshan Mountain was located on the southeast part of Duanping Mountain Range, only two mountains away from the nearest border to the wasteland.
A group of cubs walked vigorously and soon ran over two mountains, out of the range of Duanping Mountain Range. Lu Yaoyao was still in a daze, but she was soon affected by her friends’ excitement and became energetic.
The next morning, Lu Yaoyao woke up energetically. When Yao Jiuxiao fed her breakfast, her small mouth couldn’t stop babbling, happily sharing yesterday’s interesting things with her two fathers.
Seeing his daughter was so excited, Lu Qingyu thoughtfully asked: “Do you like this kind of lively event?”
Song Xiaoqi’s birthday was very lively. All Cangshan cubs came to celebrate. Demons without cubs didn’t come, but they also sent a gift. The squirrel family’s house was located in a trunk of a tall and sturdy tree halfway up the Cangshan Mountain. This tree was very old, with magnificent roots, large branches, and a size that required about five or six adults to hug it.
