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.
When Lu Qingyu and Yao Jiuxiao sent Lu Yaoyao to bed, they saw the girl carefully placed an ordinary little stone next to her pillow. They only glanced at it for a moment, but did not stop her.
After the child fell asleep, the two adults who didn’t need to sleep fell into silence. After a moment, it was Yao Jiuxiao who took the initiative to speak: “Yaoyao’s birthday is coming soon.”
After Lu Yaoyao stayed with Father and Daddy for two days, she went out to play with her friends again. After all, little children liked to play with older children.
Lu Yaoyao’s little abacus crackled craftily. One day with Father, one day with Daddy, two days out to play. A total of four alternating days. And she found out that after she went out to play for two days, once she came back to coax Father and Daddy in turn, they would still give her other tasty snacks even if they didn’t give her fruits or candies!
For a moment, the atmosphere became peaceful and harmonious.
After playing with her friends for many days, Lu Yaoyao finally remembered the two old and lonely fathers she abandoned at home. Remembering that it had been a long time since she accompanied her Father and Daddy, Lu Yaoyao refused the cubs’ invitation to play and decided to stay at home for a few days.
On the shore of the lake, Yao Jiuxiao skillfully cleaned out the remaining broth, washed the pot, and put it back into the storage room in the house. After that, he carefully cleaned the inside and outside the house with a dirt-removal spell.
Since the two venerables began to raise Lu Yaoyao, things began to pile up in the house. Usually, both Lu Qingyu and Yao Jiuxiao put most of the daily objects in their grotto-space, but before they even realized it, many things slowly had a permanent place in the house. The small wooden house, which initially was so bare and desolate, was now full of living traces.
Lu Qingyu frowned. A strand of devil aura entered Lu Yaoyao’s body, trying to find to cause of her fright.
He found no trace of a dream fiend, so why did the child have a nightmare?
Was there any fiend that could escape his eyes and invade Yaoyao’s dream?
Lu Yaoyao was heartbroken. She was a beautiful little cub, and Father and Daddy’s human forms were also very handsome. So why were their original forms so ugly?
Forget it. As a daughter, she shouldn’t dislike her fathers’ ugliness. After all, they were ugly together.
Lu Yaoyao sadly braced herself to accept this tragic fact.
