Long Yuan flew him and the baby to the location of Ye Shao’s previously inputted home address. The sky was dark and fish-like shapes could be seen everywhere across the sky, Countless aircrafts were flying in the deep night sky, just like fluorescent fish swimming around in the deep sea.
Long Yuan docked the aircraft in front of Ye Shao’s house and brought the baby out. Although he already knew in his heart that Ye Shao would not be here, Long Yuan still felt a slight disappointment when he saw darkness from the house in front of him.
It had become an established fact that Ye Shao was abducted by monsters, but those monsters had been eliminated by him. The only clue he had left was Beck, who was once under their control. But Beck seemed like he was no longer under control. Could he still get information about Ye Shao from Beck? Plus, what made him even more confused was why would the monsters kidnap Ye Shao instead of directly killing him?
But no matter what, he was somewhat glad that this confusion existed. Long Yuan squeezed his hand. Looking at the dark house in front of him, Long Yuan turned around, preparing to leave with the baby.
“Isn’t mommy here?” With his arms around Long Yuan’s neck, the baby turned his head and looked at the house behind him that felt familiar to him. His mother used to live here with him for several days. Although he couldn’t see the scene outside from his mother’s stomach, the house was surrounded by some tiny scent left by his mother.
Long Yuan held the baby in his arms tightly. “No matter what, I will find Ye Shao.” Long Yuan said, trying to put his hand on the necklace and take out the aircraft again.
Just then, an old woman’s voice came from behind Long Yuan, “Are you looking for Xiao Shao?”
Long Yuan turned around and saw a figure in blue hunched slightly at the door of the lit house next to Ye Shao’s. The old woman at the door smiled graciously at him.
Long Yuan couldn’t help but pause in his steps and look at the old woman who had a gentle gaze in front of him. Although he was now feeling anxious in his heart because he was trying to look for Ye Shao – he had never felt this kind of emotion, no matter what happened, he would always have a good grasp of things, he couldn’t feel calm only when it was regarding Ye Shao. But when he saw the old woman, the restlessness he was feeling felt soothed.
Long Yuan’s expression softened a little and nodded at the old woman. “Yes, but he’s not here.”
“You must be Xiao Shao’s good friend. No one has ever come here to look for Xiao Shao.” The old woman walked slowly to Long Yuan. “Now Xiao Shao has gone to work in the palace, and he has not come back these days. If you are looking for him, I can contact Xiao Shao for you.”
“And you are?” Long Yuan still asked cautiously.
“I watched Xiao Shao grow up. You can call me Grandma Irene just like Xiao Shao.” The old woman said with a kind smile.
Long Yuan recalled that Ye Shao did occasionally contact someone when he was alone. He also heard Ye Shao mention the name Grandma Irene. At that time, Ye Shao’s expression had a slight smile. The warm and relaxed smile was a very rare sight to him. Even in front of him, Ye Shao was often a little cautious, with some distrust for him in his eyes, fearing that he would lose something important.
That’s why he wanted to establish a relationship with Ye Shao earlier so that he could really open up to him. Even if Ye Shao hesitated, he would never let go. He wanted to make Ye Shao completely his, so that he couldn’t escape from his side.
“Hello, if things go on without a hitch, I am Ye Shao’s future husband.” Thinking of the relationship between the old woman and Ye Shao, Long Yuan’s expression suddenly softened a lot. He did not intend to hide his desire to possess Ye Shao.
“Xiao Shao’s husband?” Grandma Irene couldn’t help but laugh.
“Xiao Shao never mentioned this to me,” The pale, brown haired old woman was about to walk up to Long Yuan. When she was close to him, her smiling expression suddenly changed. “May I ask where you are from?”
Long Yuan was puzzled by the sudden change of Granny Irene’s expresion, but he still replied, “I just came from the palace. The palace was attacked by monsters just now… Because of my mistake by killing all the monsters attacking the palace, Ye Shao… You can rest assured that I will find him. I swear on this as the future Emperor of the Empire.”
The old woman with light brown hair was not shocked by Long Yuan’s revealed identity. On the contrary, her expression turned even uglier, “Is Xiao Shao gone?”
“Yes, I suspect he was taken by the monster.” Long Yuan’s eyes darkened. “I will find him.” As if this sentence was his only belief, Long Yuan repeatedly reminded himself. Long Yuan said to Granny Irene, “I’m sorry I can’t chat with you anymore. I’m going back to the palace, hoping to find some information about Ye Shao.” Now he could only hope to get useful information from Beck.
But Grandma Irene stopped Long Yuan. She looked at Long Yuan with an ugly expression. After a long pause, she said to Long Yuan, “Can you guarantee that you will always have the same feelings for Xiao Shao? Even if… he’s not human?” After that, she fixed her gaze on Long Yuan’s eyes. As long as his eyes would waver slightly, she would not say anymore to Long Yuan.
Long Yuan showed a surprised expression, but soon he looked at Grandma Irene with determined eyes, “Ye Shao is Ye Shao, what I love is him, and I will not change my mind because of his change in identity.”
Grandma Irene watched Long Yuan for a long time before finally smiling. “I believe in Xiao Shao’s choice.” She said while taking out a lavender crystal out of her collar, “What do you think, Your Highness?”
“I also believe in Shao Shao’s choice,” A light flashed on the lavender stone, and a gentle female voice came from inside. “Hello, I’m Shao Shao’s mother.”
The author has something to say:
The reasons why Long Yuan did what he did.
First of all, Long Yuan didn’t know where little shou1 Ye had been kidnapped off to. Moreover, he destroyed all those clues and lost little shou Ye like that. He must be anxious, but he didn’t know where to start at all.
- He really wants to deceive himself ← ← lying to oneself is actually a kind of psychological way of making oneself feel better. For example, when something bad happens to me, I would lie to myself. Furthermore, he just lost someone important to him. This reaction should be normal, right? (orz, if there’s something wrong, you must tell me)
- He knew that little shou Ye was taken away by a monster. Why is he so slow? Please refer to the previous article ↑-↑ (well, it is also said in the chapter that he has a gut feeling that little shou Ye was most likely kidnapped, so why? Please continue to refer to the previous ↑-↑)
……This chapter we finally see little gong Long and little shou Ye’s mother meet. The stupid author has been moved to tears..QAQ
