Yang Yang actually woke up with that laugh, but in the Soul Cube.
One second, he was holding the big tail in his hand, the next second his hand was empty. Yang Yang looked at the empty palm with some regret. But as soon as the regret was born, it was interrupted.
A weak and mournful voice came from a distance, the “jii” sound he heard at first was familiar, but what was the situation with the second sound?
Yang Yang followed the sound and saw little twig running towards the door on the planting side, with a caramel-colored “fruit” stuck to it.
Yang Yang: “…”
This fruit was a bit familiar.
Bean Sprout came straight to Yang Yang, and when it reached him it cried out: “Ji! Jiijii!”
After a long time, Yang Yang actually understood what it meant — there is a monster eating me!
Yang Yang was unhappy after hearing this: “What monster, that’s my cub, very cute!”
The fluorescent ball flickered wildly: That’s right!
However, Yang Yang still reached out and took off the fluorescent ball.
The fluorescent ball seemed to be reluctant and its soul force stretched into cotton candy treads and wrapped around Bean Sprout’s leaves, finally, pulling out a “sugar ball” from the leaf. The sugar ball was formed from the condensed soul power. It was milky white and looked very tasty.
And after the fluorescent ball pulled out the sugar ball, part of the crisp and tender Bean Sprout’s leaves suddenly withered, the withered part turned into ash, and then dispersed in the Soul Cube. ——This kind of dead thing also had a “negative” effect on its soul-cultivating side, and it was automatically eliminated.
Yang Yang: “…”
Bean Sprout: “…”
Bean Sprout sat directly on the ground, and burst into tears: “Jiiiii—!”
Yang Yang: “…”
Yang Yang glanced at the fluorescent ball in his hand, the fluorescent ball glued the “sugar ball” to its body and ate happily.
He didn’t know if it was caused by the progressing embryonic development, Yang Yang’s perception of the fluorescent ball’s emotions was getting more and more detailed. For example, now, the “pleasure” being conveyed also contained sense of expecting “one more bite”.
Yang Yang: “…”
Whose little bandit was this?
Yang Yang reluctantly rubbed the fluorescent ball with his thumb: “Be polite, someone is crying.”

Yang Yang looked at Bean Sprout again: “Don’t cry, aren’t you able to grow it back? Seeing that your arm has grown out, the speed of recovery should be quite fast.”
Bean Sprout waved the newly grown branches and shouted angrily: “Jiji jiii.”
Leaves are much harder to grow than branches!
Yang Yang: “It can always grow back again. Look, the soul power you grew back your arc with was provided by me, so what wrong with me giving my cub something to eat after you grow back?”
The fluorescent ball flashed frantically again: Exactly, what’s wrong!
Yang Yang raised her eyebrows, tapped the fluorescent ball with his fingers, and went on to educate by hitting: “You too, greet people before before eating. Also, the quality of soul essence plants is thanks to its soul power. If you eat too much, it will be gone. So from now on, you can eat a little bit every day, you know?”

Yang Yang reassured Bean Sprout again: Don’t be afraid, it won’t live here all the time, it will only come in with me when I fall asleep and will be born in four months at most.”
Bean sprouts slumped on the ground reluctantly, and its mournful emotions turned into a voice that was transmitted to Yang Yang’s mind — but it takes more than four months to grow a new leaf, and it only takes four bites of your cub to eat one of my leaves.
Yang Yang looked at Bean Sprouts in surprise, “You didn’t say anything, how could I hear your words? ——Speaking of which, why can I understand your words?”
Bean Sprout: “…”
Can you respect the point in my words?
But no one cared about it.
Roth’s voice sounded, explaining Yang Yang: “Master, after signing the master-slave contract you can communicate at the soul level. As long as something has self-consciousness, you can communicate even without a language.”
Yang Yang nodded: “Then it’s quite convenient.”
Then Yang Yang looked at the Bean Sprout and went back to the topic just now: “Since your leaves are so difficult to grow, can you bear fruit to eat? Or squeeze out a little soul power every day? ——My family’s cub doesn’t eat much.”
Bean Sprout: “…”
At this moment, Bean Sprout finally understood that it had entered the den of thieves. ——But the soul power here was really mellow and delicious.
Seeing Bean Sprout’s hesitation, Yang Yang stepped up to say: “If you can agree to that, I will make it not bother you. You also don’t want to be caught by it every day, right.”
Bean Sprout considered for two seconds, then let out a“ji”, agreeing.
What else could it do? qwq
Yang Yang was very satisfied, and then went to discuss the “three laws*” with the fluorescent ball. With the gradual formation of fluorescent ball’s self-awareness, Yang Yang discovered that the fluorescent ball was not only well-behaved, but also has the curiosity and adventurous spirit unique to children.
*from what I found, it refers to three laws set by some emperor figure.
In short: naughty.
Yang Yang and fluorescent ball analyzed the pros and cons, and then fluorescent ball glanced at Bean Sprout with reluctance. Unfortunately, it turned out that it wasn’t a snack from Big Dad.
In the end, the fluorescent ball agreed obediently, and in order to show closeness, he “hugged” Bean Sprout like it did earlier, but this time it didn’t take any soul power away.
Bean Sprout accepted the hug in horror, only when it found that it was still alive it finally believed what Yang Yang said.
After resolving the “contradiction” between the two little ones, Yang Yang yawned and said, “Okay, you can play by yourself, I have to rest for a while.”

Bean sprouts: alertness.jpg
But the fluorescent ball was very obedient to Big Daddy. If he didn’t want it to eat, it won’t eat it — in any case, this “sugar ball” was enough to lick for a while.
Yang Yang slept for about half an hour before being woken up.
Yang Yang opened his eyes, and the first thing he saw was the big tail in his arms, the black scales seemed softer as they were outlined in the dusk light outside the window.
Yang Yang tightened his hands a little, and wanted to lower his head and rub his face.
Unfortunately, before he could touch it, Archibald took back his tail, and reminded with an alert look: “Don’t rub, you have been hugging all the way.”
He actually acted as a pillow for me all the way?
Yang Yang was a little happy in her heart, and a smile appeared on his face: “I won’t rub, have we arrived at home?”
Then he opened the door and got out of the car.
Archibald stopped him and said confidently: “You hugged my tail all the way and I should touch your belly too.”
Yang Yang: “…”
He turned out to be waiting for this.
Yang Yang’s current good mood turned into helplessness, and finally turned into amusment .
“Okay, I’ll let you touch.”
Archibald immediately came over, and familiarly stuck his hand under Yang Yang’s clothes and put it on Yang Yang’s belly.
But soon, Archibald’s face changed, it didn’t seem like he couldn’t sense it, but he didn’t have the same happy expression as before.
Yang Yang was also a little puzzled: “What’s wrong?”
Archibald retracted his hand after a while, and said: “It won’t eat my soul power.”
Yang Yang shrugged: “Maybe it’s not hungry.”
Maybe its still holding the “sugar ball” and licking, how can it eat your soul power.
“Go back to the house, I’m a little hungry.”
Yang Yang sorted out his clothes, put on his coat and got out of the car.
Archibald and Monta also got out of the car. Monta acted as a driver all the way and found some small details, but he still needed to continue observations to make a conclusion.
Archibald, on the other hand, kept frowning and was very silent.
When Yang Yang was changing his shoes at the entrance, Archibald seemed to finally come to a conclusion.
He looked at Yang Yang in shock and anger, and asked: “Do you have someone else outside?”
Yang Yang: “…”
Four elders who were having a dinner in the house: “???”
Yang Yang felt helpless — because before he heard this sentence, he didn’t think about it at all, but immediately understood what Archibald meant: you have someone else outside = someone else touched your belly = someone else fed the child soul power = so it doesn’t eat my soul power.
Yang Yang: “…”
Well, this could be considered a tacit understanding.
But even questioning that he would go back on his word was a taboo in any kind of relationship. Therefore, this kind of signs must be snuffed out in the cradle from the beginning.
So Yang Yang turned back, with a silent frown and a sad expression on his face: “I thought we could trust each other a little more.”
Archibald was startled, he had never seen Yang Yang show such an expression before. For a moment, he was inexplicably panicked, as if he had done something wrong.
Yang Yang retracted his gaze with his eyelids drooping slightly, “I promised you so and today no one has touched my belly except you. If you don’t believe me, then so be it. I’ll go up and rest first.”
After that, Yang Yang greeted the four elders dispiritedly, and then went upstairs.
Yang Yang was actually very hungry, so as soon as he returned to the room and took off his coat, he took out a package of snacks from the storage area — in the storage area, Yang Yang stocked up a lot of food, most of which were the ones Monta paid for, as well as the Seablue Star specialities sent by Xiaoqing.
Yang Yang was sitting cross-legged on the sofa eating, and Roth was lying on the side, very worried: “Master, don’t you like the Duke? Why are you making trouble with him like this?”
Yang Yang: “It’s not called making trouble, it’s called love education.”
Roth: “Then what if the Duke ignores you?”
Yang Yang smiled: “Impossible.”
Roth was suspicious, but still chose to believe its master. Facts have proved that its trust was not given in vain.
In less than ten minutes, there was a knock on Yang Yang’s door.
Yang Yang smiled at Roth: “It’s coming.”
After speaking, Yang Yang sealed the snacks and put them aside, and wiped his mouth. Then he regained his sorrowful expression and went to open the door.
Outside the door, Archibald was standing with a dinner plate. Although there was still no expression on his face, his tail was hanging lowly and the tip of his tail was unconscionably shaking nervously slightly.
Yang Yang looked at Archibald without speaking.
Archibald pursed his lips, then handed the plate to Yang Yang: “Didn’t you say you were hungry?”
Yang Yang glanced at the plate and didn’t take it.
Archibald paused for a while, then took a breath and said: “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have said that. ——I was born with predestined to have relationship with children, and I only now I have the opportunity to develop a relationship with my child, so I’m feeling a little anxious. .”
Education of love, success.
After getting the apology, Yang Yang turned from cloudy to sunny: “I forgive you.”
Archibald looked up at Yang Yang — so simple?
Yang Yang stretched out his hand to take the dinner plate and said: “I know you didn’t mean that, but you should also know that not trusting me like this is very hurtful.”
Archibald was silent for a second, then he said in a serious tone: “I won’t do it in the future. I promise.”
Yang Yang: “En, if you doubt me again, I will speak ill of you to the child.”
Yang Yang laughed suddenly: “I lied to you.”
Maybe it was because the expression on his face was too serious before, but the sudden smile on Yang Yang’s face felt very different. Like a flower bud that suddenly blooming in the land of ice and snow, letting out fragnant smell in an instant.
Archibald’s was dazzled for a moment, and for the first time, he faced a truth in his heart: Yang Yang was really beautiful.
Yang Yang was worried that Bean Sprout would eat his plants but Bean Sprout was eaten instead by his cub. The circle of life!
