The egg custard was golden in color and silky in texture, supplemented with finely-chopped seasoning. It was very tasty and soft.
Lu Yaoyao sat on Beautiful Father’s lap, with her back leaning against him. Her tender and chubby little hands were holding Father’s white sleeve tightly, afraid that he would disappear again.
Lu Qingyu took out the space ring, erased the registered aura on it, and swept the inside with his spiritual sense. There was nothing useful—only a bunch of things that were totally useless for the mighty Devil Venerable. Besides a pile of useless spiritual pills, there were also many spiritual stones. Most of which were middle-grade and lower-grade, with a few pieces of highest-grade spiritual stones.
But thinking about it, their belongings were too expensive to use without attracting problems, so these things were about right.
A thick bloody smell spread in the air, and the pure white snow was stained with dazzling red, rendering the whole place absolutely conspicuous among the silvery white. In the middle of the bloody world, a man in a red robe stood, carrying a little baby in his arms.
When Yao Jiuxiao arrived, what he saw was such a scene.
The crocodile demon stood in front of Lu Qingyu. His face was full of murderous intent: “You killed the snake.” It was an affirmation, not a question.
“Big brother, there is no need to be polite. Let’s kill him to avenge the snake!”
Lu Yaoyao slept very soundly. The moment she opened her eyes again, what she saw was an unfamiliar ceiling. This made her uneasy, and she subconsciously wanted to cry. But when she turned her head to the side and saw Daddy was lying next to her, she immediately felt relieved and stopped the cry.
Lu Yaoyao propped herself with her tiny hands and sat up. Her head swayed left and right as her big eyes twirled around, searching for another familiar figure.
Lu Yaoyao played for a long time before finally fell asleep. Covered with a warm cloak, she lay comfortably on the beast skin blanket. Her chubby little face was flushed in her sleep, making her looked very well-behaved.
Lu Qingyu sighed in relief.
Lu Yaoyao listened intently to their conversation. She seemed to only partially understand, however, and thus was made confused by what she heard. Because she was listening so intently, she didn’t even realize when she had finished eating the spiritual egg custard.
Lu Qingyu took out a medium-grade spirit stone and placed it on the table, “Do you have a guest room open?”
Lu Yaoyao heard the voices and turned her head curiously. What she saw was a group of tall ‘people,’ each one with a complete human form, although their appearances looked mediocre. Only the two women among them looked pretty in comparison. However, what Lu Yaoyao saw every day since her birth was her two handsome fathers.
Facing men like Lu Qingyu and Yao Jiuxiao day and night, Lu Yaoyao’s standard had become much higher without her realizing it. Therefore, even if the two woman’s looks were above average, they were still mediocre in her eyes.
Lu Qingyu’s plan was perfect. After returning to his territory, he would immediately close the border to the Devil Realm. Even with Yao Jiuxiao’s strength, it would be impossible to forcefully tear open the realm’s boundary within a short amount of time.
As long as he had ten to twenty years, Lu Qingyu could raise the child as a proper devil race member. When the time came, all the dust would have been settled, and Yao Jiuxiao would be powerless to change the result.
This year’s snow had been falling longer compared with previous years. After three days of continuous fall, the snow showed no sign of stopping and was getting heavier instead. Almost the entire Demon Realm was covered in snowflakes, turning the scenery into a boring white-clad world.
An old wooden door suddenly squeaked open. Storm-engulfed snowflakes blew into the building, followed by the cold air that shook the dim candlelight.
