When they arrived at the imperial quarters, the child was already asleep. Luo XiaoLou sat on the edge of the bed and stared at the child’s eyebrows. He thought of him growing up slowly under everyone’s affection, with a pretty little face like Yuan Xi’s. He dared to say he had never seen such a pretty and lovely baby, with the same domineering nature as Yuan Xi, who would sweetly call him father, and pamper him by jumping into his arms…
The first thing you needed to do was to get your hands on your son.
Oh! The little guy was so incredibly soft, and different from everyone else in the world! He was really the most unique and adorable baby…The only small drawback was his looks. Yuan Xi peeked at Luo XiaoLou without shame.
If the baby looked like Luo XiaoLou, then the process of raising him from childhood would be how perfect…
125 with a pleased and grateful expression guarded the two eggs, and maintained a pose with both paws crossed over his chest, as he prayed reverently and praised God/Goddess Buddha/Aura! Let his little babies be safely back at his side. He couldn’t bear the consequences of losing them. This was still the first time he had nurtured. The little master of breeding! If it weren’t for his own lack of hair, he would have simply willed it all to Bala under the burden of hatching eggs.
And forced to guard one of the eggs next him was Saint Gerald who didn’t feel the same gratitude of 125. He has to be there every once in a while for the egg with his blood pattern to channel the horned dragon spiritual energy, but that included, every ten seconds or so, to suffer under 125’s white eyes. That didn’t even include his complaints.
Jesus Christ, he was just trying to take a nice bath and plan his future. What the hell did he do wrong!
Given that His Royal Highness Prince, and His Royal Highness Prince Consort had completely fallen into happy, silly daddy mode, Ling Xu stopped the others from bothering them again after they came over once.
After the ship landed, Luo XiaoLou carefully put the still-sleeping child into the safety pod, and Yuan Xi took the pod directly down to the ship.
Luo XiaoLou saw Shao Rong below, who had come along on the ship and now apparently intended to leave. He hesitated, walked over and asked, “What are your plans after this?”
Shao Rong, who should have had no ill will toward him, whispered in his ear as he killed him as Su Lan had requested, “You really surprised me with this skill.”
At that time, Shao Rong knew he wasn’t going to be killed. Moreover, when he struck, he even pushed back Luo XiaoLou, who was hidden behind his out-of-body illusion form, by about ten meters.
The illusionary form outside the body was not a real person, but a human form condensed from Yuan Power. If Shao Rong had really wanted to make a move on him, he would have been able to find Luo XiaoLou’s hidden real body.
Shao Rong looked at him quietly. “I won’t go back to Federation. Oh, I’ve become a poor homeless person now.”
Luo XiaoLou froze, so to speak. Every time he saw Shao Rong, he had a smile, that was pleasant, lazy, bizarre, and even made him feel dangerous.
But for the first time, Luo XiaoLou saw sadness in the eyes of this powerful man, who seemed to be overflowing with blood. Although it was only a flash, Luo XiaoLou felt a sudden sourness in his heart. Perhaps because their bloodline had been abandoned by humans and exotic beasts. Perhaps because Shao Rong once helped him.
“Then do you want to go back to the exotic beast side? My brother and the others will also come over…” Luo XiaoLou suggested, if it wasn’t as a last resort, Luo XiaoLou will definitely wouldn’t ask about the exotic beast side of things.
Shao Rong’s black eyes looked at him for a while. Eventually he said nothing, just silently lowered his head, as his shoulders began to tremble.
Luo XiaoLou widened his eyes. He was almost shocked at his ability to stir up emotions, when he suddenly heard a familiar laugh.
With an evil and hateful smile, Shao Rong approached Luo XiaoLou’s ear and asked, “I say, you don’t really believe it, do you? Tsk, it’s really deceiving and cute–“
Luo XiaoLou stood dumbfounded. The little bit of sourness in his heart completely didn’t know which corner to run to. He definitely shouldn’t meddle in this matter…
“I’ve seen your mother.” Shao Rong suddenly said. “She was a very smart woman, while your father is more perverted than me. I really don’t know who you take after, but I’m glad you’re this kind of character.”
After he said that, Shao Rong raised his hand, touched Luo XiaoLou’s face and turned away. “Don’t worry about me. I already feel them coming.”
It seemed that Shao Rong had decided to return the exotic beasts. The call of that bloodline was almost an insistence in all exotic beasts’ hearts.
Luo XiaoLou sighed with relief in his heart, and turned around to chase in the direction of Yuan Xi, whose face was already very wrong.
They saw not only the Empire’s quarters, but also Federation, the two second level civilizations, Telles and Attius, and even some other first level civilizations’ quarters.
Saint Gerald, after he repeatedly assured that the egg would be absolutely fine for a short time, was finally set free and followed the Attius guard that had come to greet the prince.
He felt that the rare good temper in his life had been exhausted on this day.
Luo XiaoLou and Yuan Xi were welcomed into the imperial quarters, and went to meet Yuan Lie and Feng JiaLing first. Surprisingly, Feng JiaLing actually leaned on the bed to meet them.
Looking at Feng JiaLing, who was holding the child with a smile, Luo XiaoLou looked at Yuan Che. He could see his concern, and explained softly, “Mother isn’t feeling well. He said it’s the water and soil. It’s not a problem.”
Luo XiaoLou almost wanted to vomit blood. This wasn’t even bothering to find a perfunctory reason…
He stole a glance at Yuan Lie, whose face was even colder than usual, and Luo XiaoLou swallowed all his doubts.
The child had woken up. He looked around and seemed to want to reach Luo XiaoLou, like before in the airship. Now in addition to Yuan Xi to hug him, others who wanted to approach would get a black face or baby growl.
But when he saw that it was Feng JiaLing who was holding him, the child’s black eyes stared at the person for a few seconds and then he opened his mouth to reveal a smile.
The two fathers’ hearts were instantly flooded with sourness at that good and lovely look.
Yuan Nuo tsked twice and exclaimed, “What a magical effect. No matter what time it is, as long as he reaches for Mother, he immediately becomes good and will smile, while for us…”
Luo XiaoLou then realized that the child, although he was obediently leting Feng JiaLing hold him. The child’s eyes were still looking at himself and Yuan Xi, and it was obvious that the child was both loving and fearful of his grandfather.
Yuan Xi looked at the child for a while, then suddenly got up and bowed to his father and mother and said solemnly, “Father, mother, no matter what happens, I will face it with Luo XiaoLou.”
Since this statement was so informative, everyone in the room looked at Yuan Xi in surprise.
Luo XiaoLou, although touched with warmth in his heart, still blurted out, “You didn’t even consult with me about naming your child?”
Feng JiaLing, on the other hand, calmly and elegantly asked, “By the way, explain to us what his younger brothers are?”
Yuan Xi looked back at 125, who immediately ran over and placed a small basket on the bed, opening the pink towel in the basket to reveal the two eggs inside.
Yuan Xi coughed and said, “I know it’s hard to believe, but these two are our children as well.”
The group in the room looked at each other, then finally realized that Yuan Xi wasn’t joking with them.
Yuan Nuo lost his voice for a moment, then shouted, “aren’t these the baby’s toys?” Once he tossed them to play. Such things he could never say…
Feng JiaLing and Yuan Lie looked at each other. After the surprise, the smile in their eyes deepened. Obviously they felt very satisfied with the addition of two more offspring.
Yuan Che, on the other hand, couldn’t understand. He looked at Luo XiaoLou, sized him up several times until Luo XiaoLou’s hair was about to explode, before he said with interest, “So you are able to lay eggs?”
Luo XiaoLou winced, and said with slight difficulty, “No. That was actually, just a misunderstanding.” He apologized to Li Mo in his heart. He really didn’t mean to discredit the exotic beast family. If Yuan Che had some kind of expectation of Li Mo because of this, it really had nothing to do with him. Ah, it was all 125 the whole way!
Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou, proudly, and said with a bit of a show-off tone, “I thought for hours about the name for him. Yuan Yu.”
Luo XiaoLou mouth corners twitched as he looked at Yuan Xi. A few hours after he saw the child, when before all he’d been thinking about wasnthe arrival of the resident…
When he noticed Yuan Xi was eagerly staring at his eyes and red-stained ears, Luo XiaoLou’s eyes showed a smile. He thought about it and said, “The name is good. Let’s do this.”
Yu. Bright, dazzling, topsy-turvy. This was probably Yuan Xi’s expectation for his eldest son.
Yuan Xi’s eyes did light up, and he proudly came over to Luo XiaoLou and whispered, “Actually, I also have a name for those two children. The one stolen by that damned golden dragon, should be called Yuan Yuan. What do you think?”
Round? Luo XiaoLou considered it for a moment. He understood that Yuan Xi was worried that the child not be hurt in it’s vitalitiy by the eggshell damage, so to go with this name to make up for it…?
“It’s good.” In fact, Luo XiaoLou rarely rejected Yuan Xi’s decision. In 125’s words, the phrase, married from the husband, was perfectly embodied in Luo XiaoLou.
Affirmed, Yuan Xi proudly took Luo XiaoLou’s hand. As for the name of the other child, he planned to take his time thinking about it. He and Luo XiaoLou would have it long enough.
After adding the surprise of two new family members, Yuan Xi looked to Yuan Lie and asked, “Father, why are so many people coming to Stua?”
Yuan Lie stood next to Feng JiaLing, put his hand on his shoulder and said coldly, “Someone found out that those octopus people seem to have a connection with this place as well. And Telles, it seems, has known about this place for a long time.”
“I think they came here because they think it’s profitable. There are huge new energy sources detected here. Whether it’s energy, or more advanced technology, or weapons that haven’t appeared it’s possible, and that’s reason why they are scrambling.”
Luo XiaoLou quietly touched his chest. He had to come for his own life. The people of the Empire and Federation were there for their enemies. The rest, although under the guise of helping the Empire and Federation, their real purpose was probably to come and get a piece of the pie.
Yuan Che interjected, “Our enemies, who will be more than just the octopus people, must have prepared well in advance.”
Yuan Xi nodded admiringly. He was about to speak when he saw Luo XiaoLou with his head down, and thought he was tired. He spoke to his father, and moved to send Luo XiaoLou back to his room first, while 125 picked up the small basket and followed them.
Yuan Yu blearily looked in the direction the two fathers and his younger siblings left, but didn’t dare squeal.
After Yuan Xi left, Luo XiaoLou laid down and gently touched the two eggs. He used his Yuan Power to help them detach, as 125 had said, and to make the babies healthy, strong and come out of their shells sooner.
Ten minutes later, Luo XiaoLou’s heart suddenly stirred. His eyes grew dazed, He let go of the two eggs, slowly sat up, got out of bed and walked outside.
125’s attention finally shifted from the eggs, and he realized something was wrong. He shouted, “Hey! Where are you going?”
Luo XiaoLou ignored 125, moved stiffly to the door and opened it. Just as 125 was anxiously readying himself to contact Yuan Xi, a man blocked the doorway.
The man made a silent gesture at 125 on the bed, then pushed Luo XiaoLou back, dodged inside the door, and closed it tightly again.
