Ye Shao, after getting off the public suspension car, rode along the path of a Wutong tree trail, and walked along until he saw a single house behind the trees.
At the end of the path, a robot sweeping the road slowly rotated to clean the ground. Ye Shao turned into a corner on the right and immediately saw two houses next to each other. He went to the house on the right and rang the doorbell.
“Dingdong~ Sorry, master is out. Please come back later.”
It seemed that Granny Irene was out for a walk. Maybe she went to the supermarket at the entrance of the community to buy ingredients. Although it was said that you can buy anything through the OmniStar network, and it would be delivered in a few minutes, many people still liked to choose their things by themselves.
Ye Shao didn’t stop and turned to the house on the left. Through iris detection and fingerprint verification, Ye Shao opened the door and went in. As soon as he entered the room, he saw a half-man tall cylinder robot in an apron rushing out of a corner. He saw his two red electronic eyes flashing constantly, “Welcome back, master!” As he said, it took out his slippers from the shoe cabinet and put his head upside down in front of Ye Shao. “What would you like to eat tonight?”
“No, I’ll eat at grandma Irene’s tonight.” Ye Shao sat at the entrance of the porch, took off his shoes and put on his slippers.
“Okay, what else can I do for you?” The robot overlapped a pair of manipulators in front of its chest and followed Ye Shao. The three mechanical fingers rotating once in a while.
“Not yet. You don’t have to follow.” Ye Shao walked up the stairs.
“Okay.” The cylinder robot stood at the top of the stairs and looked in the direction Ye Shao was going up. Its electronic eyes flashed. When Ye Shao disappeared at the corner of the stairs, it turned left and walked away.
Ye Shao walked up the second floor and stood outside a locked room for a while before walking into the next room. The room remained as he had left it, and nothing had moved. Ye Shao unpacked some clothes and put them into the wall-mounted wardrobe. He took a bath and changed into more casual clothes.
“Daddy~” The baby turned over a few times in Ye Shao’s stomach, then began running it’s mouth. “When will baby be able to eat vitality again? It’s been almost a month and a half since the last time. Baby is a little hungry…”
Ye Shao’s original act of changing clothes was immediately stopped. The tips of his ears, which were originally like white jade, turned a little red, and his pink lips pursed. If it was not for the baby’s warning, he would have forgotten this matter. The forced entry scene of that day suddenly appeared in his mind, and then the picture of Long Yuan getting along with him, pressing him on the bed and kissing each other in the woods on Alpha, and finally the scene of Long Yuan kissing him on the cheek and leaving.
Ye Shao didn’t know why his heart beat faster for half a beat. He immediately waved the scene in his head and said with a reddish complexion, “I’ll try to find a way. Isn’t there another half a month?”
“Oh, if only that uncle didn’t leave. Although the uncle was very dangerous, baby still wanted to eat his energy~~” The baby rolled happily. Thinking of the delicious food at that time, it couldn’t help but drool.
Ye Shao froze and said in a hurry, “Shut up.” Even his voice was a little tense.
The baby was aggrieved and wriggled a few times, but did not make a sound. The baby did not say anything wrong, why was mother so angry? Sure enough, the world of adults could not be understood by babies…
Two hours later, the doorbell rang in front of Ye Shao’s door, and Ye Shao immediately realized that it was grandma Irene. He went downstairs and opened the door. Outside, a light-brown haired, kind-hearted old woman in a light green dress laughed at him, “Little Shao, you are back at last. Do you want to come to my house? By the way, I just went out to buy a silver fish from Asia Star, so come have dinner at grandmother’s house.”
“Okay.” Ye Shao nodded and looked at the old woman in front of him gently, then changed his shoes and followed her to her house.
After dinner, he sat on the sofa in the living room and talked for a long time with this kind old woman. Then Ye Shao got up and went home.
What he didn’t know was that when he opened the door of his house and went in, the old lady, who was sitting on the sofa, listened to him carefully. Then she took out a piece of lavender stone which was tied around her neck. It seemed that she was talking to herself, “Young master Shao is doing well, and you have heard it yourself. You can be rest assured now. I will say that young master Shao did not have anything to do with it.”
After a long time, from the lavender stone came a simple and gentle female voice, “Mn, everything is fine with him, I can hear it.”
On a deserted planet in the territory of the Empire, there were endless yellow sands everywhere. A graceful woman wrapped in white gauze was walking slowly, and behind her were shallow footprints.
All of a sudden, she stopped and listened to the sound coming from a piece of lavender stone on her chest. Under the white gauze covering her half face, her pink lips moved, and a trace of golden light flashed in her black eyes from time to time.
A long time later, after hearing an old woman’s voice, she said, “Mn, everything is fine with him. I can hear it.” Then her voice stopped for a moment, reached out and stroked the chestnut hair in front of her forehead. “My brother has been pressing me more and more closely recently. Last time, he stopped on Alpha to see my dear son, and found his whereabouts and came after him. Fortunately, he didn’t find Shaoshao. For the sake of his safety, I may not be able to contact you frequently during this period. Please watch over Shaoshao.”
“Yes, your Highness.”
After hearing the old woman’s reply, the woman lowered her long black eyelashes and put the lavender stone back into her clothes. The wind in the desert suddenly became stronger, blowing away the white yarn wrapped on the woman’s head, revealing long chestnut curly hair.
The woman immediately rearranged the scattered white yarn and continued to walk forward.
Although it was said to be walking, her speed was much faster. Almost every time one looked back at her figure, it would be dozens of meters away. Soon the figure of the woman turned into a small black spot, and then quickly disappeared.
The huge crystal lamp cast a bright light. The maid in the white dress clasped her hands in front of her, straightened her waist and hung her head slightly beside the wall of the wide room. There was a long dining table in the room. The pure white tablecloth was ironed inch by inch without any wrinkles. In the middle of the table was a vase with a rose that had just been cut and was stained with dew. The atmosphere looked quite good.
Long Yuan was dressed in a black, gold-edged dress, and his dark hair was carefully arranged, revealing his full forehead and slanting sword eyebrows. At this time, he was raising his eyebrows. From time to time, the oppressive blue light flashed in his dark eyes. His eyes were heavy looking at the middle-aged man with a somewhat fat figure sitting opposite him.
Under the gaze of Long Yuan, the middle-aged man constantly took out the handkerchief in his pocket and wiped the cold sweat on his forehead. Beside the middle-aged man sat a girl with long light brown hair in a light blue skirt. Under the radiation of Long Yuan’s oppressive eyes, her body was slightly stiff.
“I don’t remember when I promised to be engaged to Miss Ling.” Long Yuan’s slender fingers tapped several times on the table, and the blue light in his eyes was getting deeper and deeper.
“This… The Queen has no objection either…” The sweat on the Duke’s face became worse.
“I hope to hear about the dissolution of the engagement tomorrow, as soon as possible.” Long Yuan pulled at the bow tie on his neck, then stood up and took the matching long windbreaker next to him. Finally, he leaned down, his eyes narrowed slightly, with dangerous light, but the corners of his lips were upturned. “You two enjoy dinner slowly. I’ll go first.” With that, he did not see Prince Feist’s pale face any more. He opened the heavily carved bronze door and went out.
“Reed.” Just out of the door, he began to call the old housekeeper standing on the side.
“Yes, my dear Highness.”
“Has the letter of notice been sent?”
“Yes, they have been sent to master Ye’s communicator according to your orders.”
“Good.” Long Yuan raised his lips, but this time he was in a good mood. He couldn’t wait to see Ye Shao. The deep blue in Long Yuan’s eyes rolled up like the sea that had just set off a storm.
In the distant galaxy, in the majestic palace, on the throne covered with white fur, the silver haired King squinted, “I need to know more about that galaxy, and for my successor, I need more and more human beings.” Long white fingers stroked the silver white hair that had been dragged to the steps under the throne, and the golden pupils showed animal brilliance.
“I will certainly fulfill the king’s request.” The shadow kneeling under the throne disappeared.
In the magnificent universe, a black shadow jumped in the scattered floating meteorites. The fast-moving shadow tore out a black hole the size of a basketball in the space. Then the black shadow suddenly became a twisted black line and ran into the black hole. After it’d disappeared in the black hole, the hole gradually closed and vanished.
