When you sit at home behind closed doors, disaster comes from the sky.
With his newly awakened and increasingly powerful strength, no one dared to challenge his authority to his face yet. So, since his coming of age ceremony, his life had been smooth, comfortable and pleasant. Simply perfect.
The Empire was strong, although the old man had been sleeping, which threw everything to him to manage, but the ministers under his hand will naturally do their duty to him and handle everything. He only needed to make decisions on the big things. Occasionally, he would also go to the battlefield to stretch his legs, so that those who didn’t know the virtues of subservience could appreciate the iron hand of the Empire.
If he had to list one thing that he wasn’t quite satisfied with, it would probably be his personal life.
He’d been an adult for a month now, and still didn’t have a spouse to show for it.
Because of the urging of his family, but more because of boredom, he had begun to take this issue seriously. He got the details of the noble ladies from all over the Empire from his retainer, who had to approve them three times before they could be submitted to him.
To be outstanding in appearance, perfect in body, outstanding in genes, dignified and noble, elegant and generous…He had heard that the strictness of the selection caused many noble ladies who had fallen in love with him, to leave the palace in tears.
It took him three full days to tepidly select five that were still to his liking. Then he actually went to visit some more. Finally he selected, the family background was not too prominent, Miss Mira.
This choice, for once made his men doubt his vision or something, but he wouldn’t say that she was chosen by comparison to his first love!
That white, soft, smooth fur. Those beautiful blue eyes like the sky. The meek and good looks. The world really wasn’t a good place! Unfortunately, he already had a domineering and fierce husband with many flaws. Because he couldn’t save that beauty, he was lost for a month…
The good thing was that he found a very similar girl, and that very similar-looking character nourished his heart.
Saint Gerald rolled over comfortably in the lake. Because of what was happening on this side of Stua, several important civilizations had come there, but the damned barren asteroid actually didn’t even have a proper bathing place. It was a good thing he had found this lake hidden in a deep valley. But the lake wasn’t very big. After he turned into a beast, he occupied almost the entire lake. Hey, it wasn’t easy to take a bath. He couldn’t ask for more.
Well, the first step of his personally developed plan to pursue a mate had been completed. Miss Mira didn’t seem to resent him. One look at her shy smile, bright eyes, and smiling red lips and anyone would know that.
He was confident that when he went back to start the second step, Miss Mira would agree to become his girlfriend. Then they would have a romantic date, an engagement ceremony, the blessing of the elders and a grand wedding.
Then they would begin a happy and fulfilling married life, and in due course, Miss Mira would lay an egg for him–
The rushing sound of something falling from the sky interrupted Saint Gerald’s fantasy of a better future. He looked up reluctantly to see that something white was smashing towards him with increasing speed. A sneak attack?
Saint Gerald held out a claw with contempt. They must not have inquired about his true strength! Even if an ion cannon came at him head-on, with the solidity of his scales, he was completely undaunted!
The tip of Saint Gerald’s claw flashed with a sharp golden light, and looked like it would poke the sneaky guy into pieces. But at the last moment, panic suddenly flashed in Saint Gerald’s eyes.
“Oh no! It’s an egg!” He hadn’t expect the culprit of the sneak attack to be an egg. A small life. The abominable sneak attacker simply counted on the only soft place in his heart.
Saint Gerald hesitated for a bare moment then quickly withdrew his sharp nails, and tried to make his palm the softest as he wrapped Spiritual Power around it to catch the egg, although he knew that the chances of an egg being saved after falling from such a high place were very low.
Things were as bad as Saint Gerald had expected. Although he caught it securely, the egg shell was still a little cracked. But the worst was yet to come as Saint Gerald looked incredulously at the hint of red on the eggshell.
His golden eyes took on a look of shame and anger. This! What is this? Why is his blood on the eggshell?
My God! It was his nails that caused the trouble. There is nothing worse than that!
The Horned Dragon’s heart blood was the most precious. With the Horned Dragon’s unbelievably hard scales, almost no one could get the Horned Dragon’s heart blood without the Dragon’s consent. They simply couldn’t find a weapon that could cut through the Horned Dragon’s scales.
However, the horned dragon’s own sharp claws weren’t included in that.
Just now, as Saint Gerald withdrew his claws, he accidentally cut a small wound on his fingertips, and the blood stained the eggshell along with his fingers.
Horned dragons didn’t give away their heart blood easily, because the first time all horned dragons gave away their heart blood, it had to be to their wife.
At that moment, while Saint Gerald was voluntarily trying to protect the egg, there was a blood vessel at the tip of the horned dragon’s ring finger that was directly connected to the heart, so the seal of blood wrapped around the entire egg as the blood dripped down onto the white eggshell. And it was only because of this variable that the eggshell, which had been on the verge of breaking, slowly regained its smoothness.
Saint Gerald stared at the egg with unparalleled anger, resignation and shame. He would have soon had a girlfriend, a fiancée, a wife, even a child!
But all this beauty was ruined by this egg!
He couldn’t accept, no matter what, that his wife was an egg!
However, when Saint Gerald looked at the warm and vital egg in his hand, he couldn’t destroy it. He thought he must be crazy. Such self-sacrifice was, in fact, not his style…
But, now he couldn’t leave this egg. It wouldn’t be able to live. The first three years of the blood seal couldn’t be cultivated without the heart and soul of the horned dragon.
I really can’t. I can only reluctantly marry it, and then marry another person of my choice. La, horned dragons are allowed to have two wives. Hey, now the road to pursue a mate had a lot more twists and turns. He really couldn’t stand two women’s jealousy and things like that.
Saint Gerald began to hold the egg, and complain about the bad luck of the day, but he didn’t think that his misfortune was far from over.
Yuan Xi got on the mecha with Luo XiaoLou in his arms and descended as fast as he could. 125 was clinging to Cloudy Sky’s shoulder and staring sorrowfully downwards, unable to believe that those Empire people had lost his dear Bebe, the name he had chosen for him, and that the poor baby had ended up falling off a cliff!
The family plus two mecha made it to the bottom of the valley in the shortest possible time. The first thing they spotted was the big lake and the golden dragon beside it, whose colors were just too eye-catching.
Yuan Xi stared viciously at the egg held by the golden dragon. He jumped out of the mecha, drew his energy sword and pointed it at the golden dragon who couldn’t seem to find to his senses.
“You bastard! Quickly let go of him!” The stance was like catching a bad boy who had stolen a kiss from his daughter.
The golden dragon froze for a moment when Yuan Xi came out, that annoying human prince, but his eyes visibly lit up when he saw Luo XiaoLou.
With a flash of golden light, a blond youth appeared in front of them, and he greeted Luo XiaoLou across the black-faced Yuan Xi, “Hi, my dear. Do you remember me? I’ve been thinking about you ever since that wonderful first encounter on LuoFu Star, and our date on the beautiful grassland–“
“When did you ever go out with him?!” Yuan Xi snapped and looked at Luo XiaoLou, as he shouted angrily.
“Of course not. It’s just a misunderstanding, I met him when I went to mine the ore–” Luo XiaoLou hurriedly explained, but then he quickly remembered, “Wait, aren’t we here to find the child? Saint Gerald, that egg, the one in your hand. It fell from above, right?”
Luo XiaoLou looked at the white egg with hope. He felt it. It carried a familiar aura. He only hoped that the child didn’t come to any harm.
Saint Gerald was busy checking himself, his clothes, his hair, and his current image. But when he heard Luo XiaoLou’s words, he remembered that this was not the time to look back on his beautiful first love. He looked dejectedly at the egg in his hand. “Yes. Hey, this little guy, he’s really going to get me killed.”
By the time Saint Gerald finished, Luo XiaoLou was speechless, while Yuan Xi went straight into a rage. It was a good thing Yuan Xi knew to put the egg carefully into Luo XiaoLou’s hand first, and then greeted Saint Gerald directly with his fist, as he nearly beat the poor golden dragon to death.
While he was beating him, Yuan Xi also yelled, “You want to marry my daughter? Don’t even think about it! I will never give her to you. You die!”
Saint Gerald dodged. Innocent and depressed, he shouted, “Who wants to marry her? I don’t want to, but she has sucked my essence blood. Leaving me too far away isn’t good for her. If you want her to stay weak, I lost some essence blood for nothing–“
Yuan Xi’s anger rose once again, “What do you mean, you don’t want to marry her? It’s you who is not worthy of my daughter at all!”
Saint Gerald, “…”
He suddenly felt that he hadn’t only saved a small life, but also got into unbearable trouble. As it turned out, Saint Gerald’s premonition at that moment became a terrible reality, for during the three years after he brought the egg home, Yuan Xi would arrive almost every month. The child was thin, he had to scold. The child’s fur wasn’t good, he had to scold. The child…
So much so that Saint Gerald, in order to avoid trouble, fed the little guy all the way towards the spherical, until he became one of the most rounded and fleshy exotic beast babies.
Luo XiaoLou, who had a hard time pulling Yuan Xi, tried to persuade. “This thing can’t be blamed on him. Besides he also saved our child. Now there is time to think about it, Saint Gerald did also say that the blood seal can be lifted.”
Finally, Yuan Xi took Luo XiaoLou and the child back to the ship, and, by the way, he also compulsively took Saint Gerald with him. Of course, Saint Gerald went for the sake of the poor egg. He was half pushed, half came with.To save people was to save them, and he didn’t want that, and his own blood seal to conclude with the little guy having any problems.
Shen Yuan and others looked with unusual amazement at the child that Luo XiaoLou had, after he returned from the trip. Ling Xu also looked twice from time to time. Almost no one on the ship didn’t like the little one. Although he was only a few months old, he had Yuan Xi’s cool features and porcelain dolls were generally cute.
Soon, people realized that he had not only the appearance, but also the character and was very much like his father.
Teases were ignored, but whenever someone looked at him, his dark eyes glared back and his expressionless little face had a very imposing look. White tender fingers gently held onto Luo XiaoLou’s hand. If Luo XiaoLou tried to leave, he would throw a tantrum.
After the crowd of onlookers finally dispersed, the two fathers had their hands full with the little baby, but began to fumble.
Luo XiaoLou was holding the baby, and wanted to take the bottle 125 was handing him, but he was worried about dropping the baby.
That moment, Yuan Xi was standing next to him with a tense face, so he put the baby into his hands. Yuan Xi almost jumped up, and seemed to want to lose his temper with Luo XiaoLou, but he was afraid of making noise around the child, so he finally took him with trembling hands.
