Chapter 376: A too-caring mother will spoil the son
“If you’re done eating, go to the backyard to cultivate.” Di Ming Jue drawls in a taunting tone, “Didn’t you say that in the future, you’ll become stronger to protect your mother? Yet you’re so protected right now?”
Xiao Bao’s features are stiff. The anger on his face slowly disappears, but his mouth is still set on a stubborn line, “You don’t need to nag, I will train, and one day, I will be stronger than you!”
“Oh, quite the ambition.”
He loosens his hand, and Xiao Bao lands on the floor.
But he doesn’t wrap around Muyan again, like he did just moments before. He turns to look at her instead, “Niangqin, Xiao Bao is going to cultivate.”
After saying that, he goes off to the backyard.
Muyan watches his very small and lonely figure, and she’s somewhat distressed.
Her Xiao Bao is only four years old, and other four-year-old children are still acting spoiled in their parent’s embrace, but he has to bear so much.
In the end however, she doesn’t say anything.
Instead, she watches his tiny form go to the backyard, and begin to scrupulously exercise the martial skills that Di Ming Jue gave him.
Muyan isn’t a person who’s unable to tell good from bad.
She could tell that the martial skills Di Ming Jue handed over to Xiao Bao may look ordinary, but in cultivation, the Mysterious Energy within Xiao Bao gets a little more purified and refined.
His cultivation doesn’t improve rapidly, but his foundation has become more and more stable.
Nowadays, although Xiao Bao’s cultivation is still mid Heaven Stage, his real strength has already surpassed that of Shi Lanling, even though she’s on the same stage as him.
And all of these is something that Di MIng Jue had secretly and silently done for them.
“Muyan…” the man’s low voice could be heard from behind, and Muyan turns around to see that Di Ming Jue has already taken a seat by the table — where she and Xiao Bao originally were.
She watches as Di Ming Jue unhurriedly hands some chopsticks over to her, and Muyan reveals a confused expression.
The next moment, she hears the man’s magnetic and seductive voice slowly saying: “It’s a family of three, Muyan, you can’t favor one and neglect the other.”
Favor one and neglect the other? Favor one and neglect the other!
Muyan stares blankly at first, the she reacts to what the man is saying.
Favor one and ignore the other, is he saying that since she fed and kissed Xiao Bao, she also has to feed and kiss him?!
Kuh! Can this man get even more shameless!
One unspeakable breakfast has come to an end, and Xiao Bao has also finished practicing. He returns to Muyan’s side.
His little face is flushed, and there’s crystalline beads of sweat on his forehead. He’s somewhat gasping as he breathes, but those big eyes are filled with excitement.
That’s because Xiao Bao feels that he’s really getting stronger after each round of cultivating those martial skills.
One day, he would be able to protect his mother properly.
Muyan wipes the sweat from his face, her eyes are gentle beyond words, “Xiao Bao is so great, niangqin will take you to bathe, all right?”
Xiao Bao heavily nods his head.
But before Muyan could take Xiao Bao’s hand, Xiao Bao’s little form is already rising up, and gets into Di Ming Jue’s arms.
This time, Jun Shang’s posture of carrying a child has already become very standard.
But unfortunately, Xiao Bao doesn’t appreciate it. He struggles indignantly, “Let go, I want niangqin…”
“Such a big man, and you still want your mother to give you a bath?” Di Ming Jue drawls these words.
This immediately silences Xiao Bao’s screams of grievance.
But thinking of his mother gently rubbing his back and washing his hair, Xiao Bao is somewhat reluctant and unwilling.
His tiny hand can’t help but stretch towards Muyan’s direction.
Muyan promptly holds out her hand, wanting to carry him, “Xiao Bao is still so small, what’s wrong with me giving him a bath? Di Ming Jue, let go, let me carry him.”
Di Ming Jue casts her a glance, and leisurely words drift over once again, “A too-caring mother would spoil a child… a son, it would be better give him to Ben Jun to teach him. When we have a daughter in the future, Muyan, you can have your turn to guide her.”
Chapter 375: Stupid Apprentice is missing
Ru Yan and the others sees so many draughts, and they all reveal expressions of pleasant surprise.
Whether it’s the Ink Camp or the Tianji Unit, at this time, they have more or less used up all their draughts.
And nothing compares to the draughts that Muyan refines.
You simply can’t put them with the ones on the pharmacy outside.
Ru Yan and Yan Haotian were just worrying about what they should do after training Tianji Unit and Ink Camp personnel.
Now that Muyan is giving them so many of these special draughts, how can it not make them happy?
“Oh, that’s right – where’s Lou Beiyu? Why haven’t I seen him?”
Muyan suddenly asks.
“Reporting to Miss,” Ru Yan bows and says, “The Third Prince went out yesterday and hasn’t come back since.”
Muyan lifts her eyes, flabbergasted.
“Because of the fact that Miss have been missing, it might be needed to use a lot of precious and uncommon herbs to cure His Highness’ older brother. So during this time, the Third Prince has been wandering about at every big pharmacy.”
If you ask: who among the people in the Junji Medical Center has the most faith in Muyan and Xiao Bao – it would definitely be Lou Beiyu.
Other people were still more or less worried that Muyan might suffer, or Xiao Bao might get kidnapped on the road.
Nevertheless, Lou Beiyu has been firm in his belief: “Who do you take my Master and Little Senior for! Under the sun, whoever wants to do them harm would surely get beaten so hard, they won’t be able to move half their body – miserable beyond compare. I just have to obediently wait here, collect herbs, then wait for Master to return to save my older brother.”
Ru Yan recalls Lou Beiyu’s calmness and confidence, and she can’t help but sigh in her mind.
This Third Prince of Chi Yan, he obviously doesn’t have the strength to even truss a chicken, but he can become the young lady’s apprentice, and gain the Little Master’s approval – surely, there’s some sense to it.
“Anyway, Miss shouldn’t worry.” Ru Yan quickly adds, “When His Highness left, he had guards by his side, and was followed by two people from Ink Camp. There shouldn’t be any danger in Tianyuan City.”
Muyan frowns a bit, then she nods.
Her stupid apprentice can’t be so unlucky to fall into someone’s hands, right?
Although the layout of Di Yuan is luxurious and comfortable, it still couldn’t compare to her own home.
That evening, Muyan and Xiao Bao had a beautiful night’s sleep.
Xiao Bao’s cheeks are rosy, and although there’s no expression on his little face, his eyes are particularly bright and glittering.
But today, Xiao Bao sticks to Muyan more than usual.
When Muyan goes on with her ablutions, he would hold her thighs, look up and stare fixedly at her.
Like he’s afraid that his mother would disappear once again.
When they’re eating, he would show a rare softness in Muyan’s arms, and let her feed him.
Muyan hasn’t seen Xiao Bao for seven days, and had absolutely missed him.
So not only does she not reject Xiao Bao clinginess, she’s extremely happy with it instead.
The two are like this: you feed me a bite, I spoon feed you. At this time, Muyan would even bow down to kiss Xiao Bao’s little cheeks.
Then Xiao Bao’s little face would go red and he would also kiss Muyan’s cheek.
It’s exceedingly sticky sweet.
As Di Ming Jue comes in to see this scene, the vinegar in his heart immediately becomes an ocean that could turn the sky and earth upside down.
He steps forward in large strides, and grabs Xiao Bao by his scruff, directly lifting him up.
“Let me go!” Xia Bao angrily yells, and uses his limbs to try and struggle free – but his hands and feet are short, there’s no way he could get out of Di Ming Jue’s hold.
Muyan quickly reaches her hand out, wanting to snatch him back, “Di Ming Jue, let go of my son!”
Di Ming Jue turns a deaf ear, and coldly stares at Xiao Bao, “Have you finished eating your breakfast?”
Xiao Bao angrily glares at him, not speaking.
