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.
“Transform!” Lu Yaoyao’s tender voice became louder.
Nothing changed. Was it necessary to add special movements?
Lu Yaoyao spun her body around and yelled with a serious face: “Trans—” Before she could finish, her body lost its balance. She fell ass first on the ground, feeling very dizzy.
On the top of Cangshan Mountain, there was a huge basin that resembled a sinkhole. It was about ten meters high, with no vegetation growing on it. The ground was bare and brown, surrounded by steep walls undulated by sparse rocks of various sizes.
The cubs hopped over and stopped at the edge of the basin.
