Chapter 831 I Will Protect You From Now On!
Ying Ying looked at the lollipop Lue Xi handed over and observed Lue Xi. The two had a staring contest again.
Lue Xi’s mouth twitched upon seeing Ying Ying’s expressionless face. Just when she was about to take the lollipop back, Ying Ying suddenly went closer and bit the lollipop. When she raised her head again, only the stick remained from the candy. Lue Xi: “???”
Thereafter, Ying Ying said expressionlessly, “… Not tasty.’
Lue Xi complained, “That’s because you ate it without tearing off the wrapper!!! Wait… why did you eat the stick too?!”
Lue Xi’s skin crawled. She felt this cute-looking little girl didn’t seem to be an ordinary person…
Although she had sensed this girl was somewhat powerful when she appeared, she didn’t expect the latter to gobble up the lollipop.
Seeing the confused Ying Ying, Lue Xi took out another lollipop. She tore off the wrapper and handed it to Ying Ying. “Don’t eat the stick inside! Lick it!”
Lue Xi felt the ache in her heart. This lollipop was limited edition!’
If it wasn’t that Ying Ying seemed to know sister Hesha and the rest, she wouldn’t give her one. Ying Ying took the lollipop and licked it. Right away, her eyes lit up. “It’s very sweet.”
It wasn’t as tasty as Alice’s treats, but the taste was very unique. She felt it was great.
Lue Xi smiled. “Yes, it’s very tasty!”
Ying Ying nodded and gave Lue Xi a thumbs-up. “Friend! I will protect you from now on!”
This girl gave her food. She was definitely a good person! Lue Xi felt dazed, but she still nodded in the end. “Oh…”
A smile appeared on her face. “Let’s go and play in the backyard! There’s many fun stuff there!”
Ying Ying licked the lollipop as she nodded and let Lue Xi drag her away.
Two hours later, Lu Ze lay on the bed lifelessly.
‘Just what did he do wrong?’ He was almost beaten to death.
On the side, Nangong Jing and the girls were tired. Despite the exhaustion, they still sat on the bed as they seethed with anger.
However, they felt much better after releasing out their emotions.
Nangong Jing still glared at Qiuyue Hesha from time to time. “Fox Demon!”
Qiuyue Hesha grinned.
At this moment, Lin Ling asked, “Where is Ying Ying?”
Everyone was bewildered. They looked around and realized Ying Ying was gone!
The girls grew anxious. They were so set on punis.h.i.+ng Lu Ze that they didn’t notice Ying Ying left the room.
Lu Ze struggled to get up and said, “Let’s go out and see.”
Ying Ying usually didn’t like to explore outside. She just stayed on the bed watching cartoons.
The group nodded and quickly left the room. They scanned the entire place with their mental force and soon looked strangely at each other.
In the backyard, Ying Ying and Lue Xi were sitting on the swing. Lue Xi was smiling and talking while Ying Ying listened expressionlessly. She nodded from time to time and sometimes partic.i.p.ated in the conversation.
Everyone was taken aback. They remembered seeing Ying Ying sitting on the swing with that girl named Ting Ting when she was just born.
Lu Ze smiled at the sight. “Let them play first.”
Qiuyue Hesha nodded. “Xiao Xi is a good girl. It’s fine for the two of them to play together.”
Just when they wanted to leave, Ying Ying suddenly turned around and looked at Lu Ze and the girls. “Ying Ying, let me tell you, the so-called adult game is—”
“—What are you looking at, Ying Ying?”
She looked in Ying Ying’s direction and saw Qiuyue Hesha and the rest. Her body stiffened. Immediately, she started sweating. Her eyes looked around nervously.
‘Would Sister Hesha notice?’
‘Could she still maintain her innocent appearance?’
‘Would Sister Hesha not like her anymore?’
‘I can’t look at those things anymore…’
‘I must remain a good innocent child!’
She helped Ying Ying to get down the swing.
“Sister Hesha, you guys are here?”
Qiuyue Hesha saw the two little girls, and her maternal instinct kicked in. They were both very cute.
Nangong Jing smiled. “So she’s Lue Xi? She’s really cute.”
Lue Xi smiled shyly. “h.e.l.lo, Sister Jing.”
Nangong Jing nodded. “Mhm, you’re really nice.”
Lue Xi greeted the other girls too.
Qiuyue Hesha asked curiously, “Xiao Xi, Ying Ying, what are you guys talking about?”
Lue Xi’s body stiffened, but she smiled when she replied, “I was telling Ying Ying about the center.”
Luckily, she hadn’t discussed the “adult game” yet. Otherwise, she would be over.
Ying Ying nodded. “Xiao Xi gave me a lollipop. She’s a nice person.”
Lu Ze and the girls breathed easy.
Ying Ying was a child after all. It wasn’t good for her to play by herself always. It would be good for Ying Ying to have a friend like Xiao Xi.
Lu Ze carried Ying Ying and rubbed her head. “Then, you can visit here and play with Xiao Xi when you’re free.”
Ying Ying’s eyes lit up subtly, and she nodded. She was always expressionless, but they could tell she was quite happy right now.
They needed to cultivate now and had less time to play with her. The group felt responsible.
Everyone played until dark.
After dinner, they returned to Qiuyue Hesha’s
Lu Ze looked at Ying Ying and asked, “How many insectoids are there left in the Federation?”
Ying Ying’s eyes glowed a blue light. She then said, “There are none left inside, but there are still some at the border.”
The group felt relieved. They took out their devices and looked at the news.
The Federation showed a competent response in such a crisis. Other than being caught off guard on the first day, they mobilized all sorts of measures immediately.
The situation was stabilized within a short time.
This all happened in less than three days.
The Human Race’s power was greater than they had expected.
Of course, Ying Ying helped too.
The insectoids appeared too suddenly. There were still deaths and economic loss to deal with.
Lu Ze asked Ying Ying, “How is Elder Nangong?”
