Pei Xiao Bao was immediately sent to his grandparents’ house. As evidenced by the fact that he couldn’t walk on his own, so he let them hold him when he went out. He can’t eat on his own, so he has to be fed by Madame Dai. He needs a new toy every day, and his rich grandfather, Pei Zong, was the most wealthy, so Pei Xiao Bao’s toys had been upgraded from a plastic mecha to a four-wheel-drive spacecraft – the kind he could really sit in and drive away.
Then, several seniors say this transformation had absolutely nothing to do with them.
“I can’t help it if your son doesn’t let you hold him when you go out.” Madame Dai complained sweetly.
“…” Pei Yutu’s head hurt. “You’re the one who had to inspire him! Just get out of the car and ask him if he’s tired!”
“It’s just a little car. The kid only comes here once in a while, so if he wants it, I can buy it.” Pei Zong was very proud and overbearing.
“This mini spacecraft must be worth six figures, right? Who would buy such an expensive toy for a child?” Pei Yutu felt very tired. “And why didn’t I have one when I was a kid?”
Pei Zong said seriously, “It’s not the same, Xiao Bao is cuter.”
Pei Yutu, “…”
“Xiao Bao is not very good at eating on his own, and he eats too slowly without being fed. Look at how thin he is.” General Dai analyzed it seriously.
“Forget it. We can’t help it if you say he’s skinny.” Pei Yutu looked at his son’s fleshy little face, and finally gave up the fight.
In a few days, the couple abandoned the dangerous idea of leaving their son at his grandparents’ house, firmly decided to submit a transfer report, and intended to start preparations as soon as they returned to the station to try to transfer both of them back to the main planet within a year.
Pei Yutu and Ping Mo took their son out and decided to show Xiao Bao his future elementary school. They were worried that Pei Xiao Bao’s pettiness from his grandparents’ home would be difficult to cure, but he was cured in a few minutes.
As soon as they arrived in the city center and got off the bus, Pei Xiao Bao opened his arms and called out to Ping Mo, “Daddy, hug!”
Before Instructor Ping could say anything, Pei Yutu kicked him in the buttocks, and glared at him. “Don’t you have legs?”
Pei Xiao Bao immediately howled in aggression, and very cleverly cried at Ping Mo. However, after five minutes of dry howling, the little father didn’t say anything.
Pei Xiao Bao, “…” Pei Xiao Bao wiped away his tears and changed tactics. He grunted, “I can walk by myself.” Before he had taken two steps, he raised his little face, curled his big gray-blue eyes, and said in a brittle and pleasing way, “I’m old enough to walk on my own. Right, Daddy?”
This little thing was born really well. Since the child wasn’t yet grown, his big eyes took up almost half of his whole face. The baby fat hadn’t yet faded, so his cheeks were fat, and his smile was like a little angel. With this look, their anger was gone and the two dads surrendered.
Pei Xiao Bao stretched as he held his father’s hand. His short little legs moved fast, and in the blink of an eye, they arrived at the destination.
“This is the elementary school you will go to,” Pei Yutu said, as he pointed to the First Experimental Primary School in Star City, “Little Daddy will go in with you, while Daddy goes to do some business and will come back to you later.”
The Military Ministry’s office in Star City wasn’t far from this elementary school, and Pei Yutu had already made an appointment to meet his comrades and pave the way for his future transfer. Ping Mo led Pei Xiao Bao and showed the gatekeeper his officer’s ID. The gatekeeper readily let them in, but since the elementary school was closed, there was nothing to see on the campus, and the visit was much shorter than expected.
“Daddy will take you for a stroll around the neighborhood. Let’s see if there is a mini-mart,” Ping Mo suggested.
Pei Xiao Bao nodded his head like chicken pecking rice. “Then I want to buy toys!”
“You have enough toys.” Once off of the campus, Instructor Ping put on his sunglasses and casually refused.
The problem came from the early years. Whenever Ping Mo was in a crowded place, he would always cover his face. He was without a duck-tongue hat, but had taken some polarized glasses that Pei Yutu wore from the car.
It was hard to keep a low profile when he was a high profile person. Even with sunglasses on, he was really eye-catching, which made people suspect that this was a little star who was afraid of being recognized by fans. The little one he was leading had exquisite features, with big eyes that took up half of his face. He could shoot children’s commercials even just standing still, but he was especially lively, with his little mouth chattering all the time.
Ping Mo only occasionally answered with a single syllable, so the little bean could continue to chat on his own. His childish voice was soft and crisp. When they went into the convenience store, the clerk couldn’t help but stare at them. He watched one small and large person go into the snack area.
Instructor Ping easily grabbed two bags of fruity candies, then picked a few pieces of today’s new cupcakes, while his mini me tugged on his lapel, giggled about something, and seemingly pouted to buy something.
However, the little one obviously didn’t succeed, so when the two returned to the cashier, Pei Xiao Bao still had a puffed out little face, and not a very happy look as he muttered protests. “I don’t eat candy, I want toys.”
The sales clerk girl really couldn’t hold back. She smiled and asked, “Child, you don’t like candy? Your brother bought a lot of them.”
Pei Xiao Bao did not recognize it at all, and replied in a loud voice, “I don’t like candy, that candy is–“
A lollipop shut him up.
Ping Mo coughed awkwardly and lightly. “There is no child who doesn’t love candy. Ignore him, please check us out.”
The sales clerk lady looked at the child. The little bean said he didn’t like candy, but his body was honest. After tasting the sweetness, he smiled and licked it quite happily.
At that moment, someone suddenly in the store shouted, “You stole my phone, right? Don’t run!”
Then a figure flashed by. The alarm at the door followed, and the clerk shouted, “Oh! He hasn’t paid yet! Catch the thief!”
In a flash, Ping Mo picked up Pei Xiao Bao, stuffed him into the arms of the clerk, then chased after the thief like an arrow.
The thief was a repeat offender who often committed crimes in the neighborhood. Even the police hadn’t been able to do anything about him. They never thought that someone would really be brave enough to stop his way. The “warm-hearted citizen” even looked young, well-dressed, with fine skin. He looked like a rich family’s pampered young master, and shouldn’t be much of a fighter. The thief had the courage to pull out a knife to scare him. “Don’t you come over! I have a knife!”
At this time the shopkeepers and customers had also chased out after him, and there were even passers-by stopping by.
The thief was under increased pressure in full view of everyone, so he held up the knife and waved it around. “Get out of the way! My knife doesn’t have eyes–“
Before the words were out of his mouth, he felt a numbness, then the knife made a beautiful twist in the air and landed in Ping Mo’s hand with a flash of light.
Instructor Ping held up the knife, and accurately cut open all the thief’s pockets. Out came five cell phones and four wallets. The stolen goods had been recovered.
Although the knife was very accurate, and only cut his clothes, the thief looked at the blade that several times came near his own skin. There was a ghost of illusion, and he was scared silly. He rigidly kept one hand still behind him and let the man search him.
That’s when the change happened!
Pei Xiao Bao somehow ran out, the thief seemed to have returned to life. The hand behind his waist suddenly came out. Ping Mo’s eyebrows jumped. He no longer cared about face and under the emergency, directly sent out a flying kick.
“Crack!” there was the toothsome sound of a bone fracturing. This direct kick broke the thief’s hand!
At the same time, something from the thief’s hand slanted out, and just landed at the feet of Pei Xiao Bao. It was actually a pistol!
Since he had grown up in the military barracks, Pei Xiao Bao had longed for a real gun as a toy for a long time.
While they were waiting for the police to arrive, the customer who lost his cell phone kept thanking Ping Mo, and the sales clerk took the opportunity to ask Pei Xiao Bao, “Kid, your brother is so handsome. Is he seeing someone?”
Pei Xiao Bao didn’t understand what ‘seeing someone’ meant and shook his head in confusion. “No, but he’s not my brother.”
A few young customers also came over, and gathered around Pei Xiao Bao to inquire with interest, “Then who is he to you? What does he do? Is he a student at the nearby Star University?”
Pei Xiao Bao proudly puffed out his little chest. “He’s my father!”
“No way. Kids shouldn’t lie. That little brother looks like he’s in his early twenties, how could he give birth to a son as big as you?”
“I’m not lying, he really is my father! If you do not believe, ask -” Pei Xiao Bao suddenly jumped, “My other father is also here!”
Pei Xiao Bao, with short legs, ran out of the door and jumped into the arms of a tall young man with big hands. The young man’s features were deep, his shoulders and back straight, and he was very manly and handsome. He had a bandit air between his eyebrows, and a very unpleasant expression. As soon as he entered the door, the room of chattering young people subconsciously shut up, and watched him hold the little bean with one hand as he strode towards the one in the sunglasses.
“Why didn’t you answer your cell phone?” Pei Yutu said. “I heard someone on the road saying that there was a street fight with knives or something. I rushed over, but it is really you. Are you all right Xiao Mo?”
Ping Mo shook his head and was about to speak, but Pei Xiao Bo blabbed the answer, “Dad! I want to tell you something very important!”
The whole convenience store looked at him, and just when everyone thought that the little bean was going to tell them about the bravery of the little brother with the sunglasses, or to brag about his beautiful skills, Pei Xiao Bao complained clearly, “Dad, Daddy just bought candy using me as an excuse again!”
The crowd, “What?”
Ping Mo, “…”
Pei Xiao Bao was righteous. “He even bought cupcakes! He said I wanted to eat them, but he wanted to eat them himself. If Daddy always eats sweets, his teeth will break!”
Ping Mo saw the citizens freeze, and his idol baggage fell away like heavy ink. Now he only had one thought in mind. Thank God I’m wearing sunglasses.
