July 27, 3022, Garden Road, QingYuan District.
It was a beautiful summer day, with the clear sun shining on the Sky Blue Star at all times, and the weather rarely affected the rhythm of people’s lives. However, on Jing Man’s birthday, it was a different story.
When Jing Man woke up in the morning and took Big Bear for a walk, he saw the sky was foggy and misty. The gray clouds were so thick and heavy that the sun’s rays had been eaten away. The wind rolled down the clouds and continued to press down, hating the tall buildings, the cedars and sycamores, and the pedestrians on the street were all swallowed into their bellies.
It was clearly midsummer, the wind rolled away the morning dew, yet was able to blow cold with ease. Jing Man began to regret that he only wore a thin T-shirt when he went out, and the drum of retreat sounded in his heart. But… Today was the last day to walk with Big Bear in person. According to Brother Mu, by 3032, Big Bear had already died after living a long life. So, he deliberately let the children rest, and took Big Bear out alone.
This was less than half of the journey. The golden retriever not only vented enough energy, but also riveted with a big tail to go forward. Now when he stopped, Big Bear also stopped his pace, tilting his head and smiling with his tongue, his beady eyes asking his master ‘why did you stop?’
Big Bear was so cute!
“It’s okay, keep walking!” Jing Man laughed and petted his dog’s head a few times. He looked up, thought it wouldn’t rain anytime soon, and continued along the road.
When he was walking on the road, he didn’t feel anything, but once he got home, he sneezed when the heat and cold alternated. After one sneeze, he sneezed two more times and got a chill.
Xiao Sang was the first to react, running over and pulling the hem of Jing Man’s shirt to make him squat down. He touched his forehead to Daddy’s to check his temperature.
When they found out that Daddy was back, the other children also ran over and surrounded him.
Xiao Jin frowned slightly and looked like a small adult, “Daddy, you don’t have a cold, do you? I heard you sneeze three times! The weather forecast says it’s going to rain, and you didn’t put on more.”
ZhiZhi took the leash from Jing Man, “How is Big Bear today, Daddy hasn’t walked him alone for a long time, he looks so happy.”
BaiBai gave Jing Man a kiss on the cheek and wished him a happy birthday, “Happy birthday, Daddy! Happy birthday! I’m the first one to wish you a happy birthday, aren’t I? I was going to say it as soon as it was past twelve, but you didn’t answer when I knocked on the door!”
Ah, this. Jing Man thought back to last night at twelve o’clock… He was naked and so busy tussling with the demonic Brother Mu that he didn’t notice the knock on the door. As he reached his peak, Brother Mu said Happy Birthday and I love you over and over again in a hot, wet tone in his ear.
Brother Mu’s voice could make people’s ears pregnant, he was up and down into a mess of paste…
So according to this, BaiBai was not the first person to send his wishes.
But! There’s nothing wrong with making out with your lover at night, and there’s no need for a dad to let his child down on such a trivial matter. So, Jing Man’s lips hooked slightly and he lied without blushing, “Yes, BaiBai is the first one to wish Daddy a happy birthday, and Daddy wishes you a happy birthday forever!”
The other kids were not happy to hear this, and they all shouted Happy Birthday to Daddy.
At noon, Yan Xiu’er and Jing HanYang also took the time to come over. The family opened a private room at Long’s and had a beautiful meal. The food at Long’s never disappoints, and was no worse than the banquets the two usually eat, and Jing Man’s parents raved about it.
After they had eaten, they sat and talked while it rained outside. The summer rain was so sharp and painful that each raindrop wanted to smash into the flesh and blood of the earth.
Jing Man stood in front of the floor-to-ceiling window with his children watching the rain. He suddenly exclaimed, his eyes falling helplessly on Mu CangZhou, “Oops, we can’t go to the playground if it’s raining!”
Their original plan was to take the kids to the largest playground in the QingYuan District for a good day of fun. After all, they were going back to the future tomorrow, and their last day had to be a full one.
Mu CangZhou didn’t think it would be a problem, “It’s okay ManMan, there are indoor programs in the playground.”
Jing Man stubbornly shook his head, “No! It’s not comfortable to play in the rain.”
Mu CangZhou felt it was cute seeing the other’s hair puff out. However, his mother-in-law and father-in-law were in front of him, so he couldn’t go and rub Jing Man all over the place, so he asked softly, “What do you want?”
Jing Man puffed up, “Go home, check the kids’ homework, and forget about it.”
The additional homework assigned by the teacher was different for the kids because of their race. Jing Man, a pure human, initially had a headache every time he did this, feeling the time pass like years. Now that he’s learned a lot about it, he finally doesn’t have a headache anymore, but it’s still a difficult task for him.
If he had to be fulfilled, he couldn’t find anything more fulfilling to do than this. Yan Xiu’er and Jing HanYang excused themselves when the rain lightened a bit. Before they left, Jing Man dragged them to take a picture. He opened his mouth, wanting to confess the absurdity and drama of his life in the past two years. But in the end, he only said to take care of their health and didn’t say anything more.
Although he could not really accompany his parents, there will be another him to accompany them through these ten years. When they return to the future and inherit the memories, the two parties will not even create a hint of missing out.
As soon as he got home, Jing Man was excited to start checking his children’s homework.
But of course, his children were too well-behaved …
Except for FanFan, who was too lazy to write the process and skipped the answers, and Xiao Sang, who didn’t want to write for some of the questions that were meaningless, the rest of the kids’ homework was fine.
After a long day of hard work as a dad, he couldn’t find any mistakes, so there was no sense of accomplishment.
So, the eyes fell on the children.
Since the children became human, they quickly mastered this skill and never easily became their original forms again. Bored stiff, he held the nice and warm, fluffy, teeny tiny white tiger and petted a few times. Jing Man looked at the other kids and narrowed his eyes.
It had been a long time since he’d seen the golden dragon child, the lush peach blossom treant, the medusa with anti-gravity hair and sharp eyes like a blade, the cute and soft like a little angel BaiBai1BaiBai’s ABO form is also humanoid, but it matches his actual age, so he looks younger.2, and the noble, elegant, little zombie with an air of despair.
Peach blossom eyes swept over the children, Jing Man smiled and said, “Today is Daddy’s birthday, so everyone must listen to Daddy, right?”
The kids were not sure, you look at me, I look at you, a hundred should give face, “Of course! Whatever Daddy says is right!”
Jing Man rubbed his fists, “Then…. Daddy doesn’t have any other wishes, he just wants to see your original forms. What are you waiting for? Change for me.”
In the next chapter, they go back to the future, and then the novel will be finished.
Thanks for reading this! Love you guys! Mwa-da!
I’m not sure I could leave, if it were me… even if memory gaps would be filled and the loss wouldn’t be felt by either side. At this point in time it would feel too much like a goodbye 😢
Thanks for translating and editing.
It’s feels so weird that they will go back to the future… Well, let’s see~
Thank You for the new chapter (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤
