Night soon fell after the decision was made to establish a base.
Wu Wenqi’s villa had high-quality facilities in terms of security and had numerous rooms, so everyone didn’t need to crowd in one room and sleep on the floor this time.
Since it had been a long time since they had lain down on a big, soft, and cozy bed, with three to five people sharing a room, they soon entered the land of dreams, looking forward to the future and mind filled with high hopes.
In those dreams, the apocalypse had ended and the world appeared to have had its original prosperity and tranquility restored.
Nie Xiao and the little hamster were also luxuriously staying in a guest bedroom tonight. Due to Nie Xiao’s cold handsome face, the others didn’t have the guts to stay in the same room with Nie Xiao and share the same bed, even if they thought that the little hamster was cute.
If it weren’t for the little hamster keeping him company, Nie Xiao would definitely be the only person in that room tonight like usual, choosing to be the lone wolf among everyone present. In response, Nie Xiao couldn’t help but rub the little hamster on the pillow who was accompanying him.
The little hamster was caught off guard by this rubbing. He immediately raised his head and looked at Nie Xiao with two little black eyes, hesitating, as if he had something he wanted to say.
Nie Xiao keenly sensed the little dumpling’s emotions and looked at the little guy on the pillow by his side. The quiet night made his voice appear gentle and soft.
“Choubao, what’s wrong? Wanna go to the bathroom?”
The little hamster gazed at Nie Xiao. He remembered that he had kept his little secret from his daddy throughout the day and he suddenly felt a little guilty. The little cutie let out a cute cry and decided to tell his daddy.
“Chi!” Daddy, Baby has a big baobei to show you!
Nie Xiao: “…”
“Don’t make noise.” Nie Xiao helplessly said.
He then covered the little hamster’s body with his palm, patted him gently, and whispered, “Be good, sleep early, there’s still a lot more to do tomorrow, isn’t there?”
The little hamster was covered by the “automatic tiny human palm heating blanket,” his whole body was wrapped completely and he couldn’t struggle one bit. It thoroughly eliminated the possibility of kicking the comforter off and freezing his little belly.
Seeing that Nie Xiao had already closed his eyes and was about to go to sleep, the little hamster immediately felt anxious. Because he really couldn’t get out, he simply turned into his biped form.
Then, Nie Xiao felt a sudden change with the sensation under his palm and the sudden dipping of the side of the mattress. As soon as he opened his eyes, his eyes were dazzled by the shining, pale body in front of him.
“Daddy, Baby really has a big baobei to show you!”
In the darkness of the night, Nie Xiao’s face instantly turned red. He abruptly sat up, lifted the comforter on his body, and wrapped it around the youth.
Xiao WuYi was caught off guard and was wrapped up in a comforter, directly bundled like a little egg roll and yet again couldn’t struggle.
Xiao Wuyi looked at his daddy, who had become somewhat angry and couldn’t help feeling wronged.
But since the matter had already been brought up, he might as well see through it to the end. He opened his little mouth with an “aowu” and directly bit Nie Xiao’s palm, swallowing his daddy into his own little storage.
Nie Xiao only felt whiteness overtake his vision, and suddenly, he was shocked by the scenery of green mountains and blue waters surrounding him.
The youth’s cute laughter echoed all throughout.
“Baby ate Daddy and took him into the storage, la!”
Wrapped in a comforter, Xiao Wuyi struggled to sit up on the bed. His line of sight went around his own little storage and soon fell on his Daddy who was still in a daze, which he felt was very novel.
For fear of scaring his daddy, Xiao Wuyi didn’t tarry and disappeared on the bed with the comforter still wrapped around him.
When Nie Xiao recovered from the shock, he right away saw the young boy wrapped in a comforter appear in front of him out of thin air.
Seeing the youth standing barefoot on the green grass, Nie Xiao instantly moved faster than his thoughts, and directly picked the other up, even though he himself was also standing barefoot on the ground.
Feeling the youth being as light as a feather, Nie Xiao couldn’t help but frown.
On the other hand, Xiao WuYi, who was carried by Nie Xiao, felt quite happy and extended his arms to embrace his daddy’s neck. “This is the big baobei I wanted to show Daddy oh! Why did Dad get angry with Baby earlier?”
“Did Daddy think of my baobei as something else?”
Nie Xiao’s back immediately stiffened: “…”
Blame the dirty adult world.
Nie Xiao, who couldn’t come up with an answer, resourcefully decided to shift the topic. He looked at the space with green mountains and blue waters, and asked, “This is Baby’s space ability? Then why is there nothing else here?”
Nie Xiao looked as far as his eyes could see and only saw a particularly familiar-looking villa as well as a fertile field where crops were being cultivated. The things Wuyi stored in his space before must be more than just these things.
Xiao Wuyi was fooled by Nie Xiao. His attention was quickly diverted to this topic and he truthfully told Nie Xiao about the changes and properties of his two little storages.
Learning that the youth had more than one space, the confused Nie Xiao couldn’t help but be surprised. But thinking of the little hamster’s original two cheek pouches, he realized that it was reasonable.
“Daddy, there’s actually one more thing. My ability seems to be different from everyone else, and I can’t absorb crystal nuclei.” Xiao WuYi hesitantly looked at Nie Xiao. He was fidgeting with his fingers, somewhat at a loss. “Baby seems very strange.”
After hearing this, Nie Xiao immediately took it seriously. He rubbed the young boy’s head so that he would not be afraid, and then he let him try to absorb a crystal nucleus. The result was just like what he said.
At the moment, Nie Xiao was also unclear about what was going on and could only appease his little child who became a fairy, “No worries, Choubao is now a little fairy and it’s normal to be different from everyone, you don’t need to be afraid.”
Xiao Wuyi immediately felt relieved when he heard these words and nodded enthusiastically.
“Daddy, you’re the only one Baby has told about this at the moment! Do I still need to keep hiding it from everyone?”
Having heard this, Nie Xiao’s heart was touched by the youth’s unconditional trust and his whole heart melted. Rubbing the youth’s head, he pondered carefully for a moment before saying, “Let’s not tell anyone else yet. This will be mine and your little secret in the future.”
Before thoroughly understanding this matter, Nie Xiao doesn’t dare guarantee that the youth’s huge treasure wouldn’t be coveted by others. Concealing it would be the safest move.
Xiao Wuyi was also willing to share this secret with his daddy and, without thinking further about it, happily agreed.
Later, Xiao WuYi took Nie Xiao to tour his little storage. After learning that the very familiar-looking villa was their own villa in Yuncheng, the confused Nie Xiao couldn’t help but turn silent.
It was obvious that the pipeline of this house was already gone.
Rubbing the little hamster’s head, Nie Xiao ignored his own thoughts and said, “Choubao is really smart.”
The little hamster nodded happily. “Un! This is my and Daddy’s home.”
Hearing the warm word “home,” Nie Xiao felt his heart soften again, and he tenderly rubbed the youth’s fat baby-ish cheeks. “You can count as home.”
The little hamster couldn’t help but tilt his head in confusion.
The two wandered around in the space, and finally stood in front of the field of crops at the front of the villa.
The young boy immediately talked to Nie Xiao about his sadness and fatigue these past few days and then casually sprinkled a packet of seeds in the ground in front of Nie Xiao.
“Daddy, you don’t know this, but baby worked hard to plant every day, fortunately, baby can finally feed the family now. “
With that said, Xiao Wuyi changed back into a little hamster and ran a few circles in between the field. Suddenly, all the crops grew at a magical speed.
Nie Xiao: “…” This is that hard work?
Nie Xiao didn’t know that the little hamster could still bring him a lot more shock. He looked on blankly as the pack of seeds instantly turned into a robust plant. For a while he couldn’t return to his senses afterwards.
At that moment, the growing plants suddenly moved. Some long vines stretched out, blooming huge garish, gorgeous flowers, and headed straight toward the happy little hamster in the field to attack him.
Seeing this scene, Nie Xiao abruptly snapped out of it and almost subconsciously stretched out his hand to fly a wind blade out. The strange flowers and vines were swept aside and he swiftly took the little hamster out of the field.
The little hamster who didn’t know what happened felt dizzied by Nie Xiao’s actions. He was then stuffed into a pocket by Nie Xiao amidst his confusion.
The Man-eating Vine and the Overlord Flower in the ground seemed like they had suffered some huge grievances and blows. They furiously attacked Nie Xiao who kept the little hamster in his pocket.
In the end, Nie Xiao tidied them up and nearly transformed them back into seeds again.
The Man-eating Vine and Overlord Flower: QAQ
At that time, the little hamster had finally wriggled out of Nie Xiao’s pocket and stopped Nie Xiao’s digging and eradication with a “chi.”
Nie Xiao remained alert as he looked at the already dying plants. The little hamster looked at them, and his mind could not help but be baffled.
Daddy, I seem to know them!
Listening to the words of their little master, the Man-eating Vine and the Overlord Flower shook their broken vines and flowers happily. Then, Nie Xiao’s cold eyes swept across them and they became wilted once again.
“Baby, where did you get these seeds?” Nie Xiao didn’t let the little hamster come close to them. Who knows if these weird monster plants were just pretending to be weak and pitiful.
The Man-eating Vines and Overlord flowers were also a bit terrified when facing Nie Xiao, and they didn’t dare to be rash. They lay down facing the direction of their little master. If they had eyes, then they would probably be gazing eagerly and hopefully.
The little hamster didn’t pay attention earlier and simply took out a packet of seeds from his space. Now that he thought of it, those seemed to be the seeds in the packet that he found in the cave where the big tiger lives.
But based on the big tiger’s manners at that time, it seemed that he also didn’t know what kind of seeds these were.
After listening to the little hamster’s story, Nie Xiao silently remembered the big tiger outside the space. He then looked at the two plants in front of him that seemed to have become fairy plants, eyes showing coldness.
Regardless, he would not allow any possible harm to come to his child.
The Overlord Flower and Man-eating Vine immediately trembled.
Boohoo the little master has recognized the thief as his own father1 recognized the thief as his own father: idiom, meaning betrayal .
Seeing the pitiful appearance of the Overlord Flower and the Man-eating Vine, the little hamster finally couldn’t help but feel compassionate and jumped down from Nie Xiao’s shoulders.
His subconscious was telling him that these two plants would never harm him.
The little hamster moved too fast and Nie Xiao wasn’t able to stop him. He was just about to rush up to rescue his child when he saw the two weird, savage plants hold the hamster escapee and throw him high as if they were crazily rejoicing.
The little hamster was also extremely amused and played along.
And as soon as they came in contact with the little hamster, the Overlord Flower and Man-eating Vine, which had been tortured previously, instantly became vigorous and strong, their whole bodies thriving with vitality.
At that exact moment, among the bright, boundless starry sky, in some unknown, secret research room.
A man in a black robe was fiddling with a pile of colorful and gem-like ability cores. Under his bizarre manipulation, all of the ability cores gradually fused together.
Soon after, an embryonic form of a small world was formed which tore at the surrounding space and floated and existed independently.
The man in black stared fiercely at the small world in front of him.
Then, he raised his hand and inserted some plants in once again. However, it was disappointing that the plants did not grow as he had imagined, instead, as soon as they were integrated, they lost their vitality and withered into wisps of ashes.
Even if it was wielded together with a plant system’s ability core, there was no life in them at all.
Looking at this constant small world that seemed as if it would never change forever, the black-clothed man finally couldn’t contain his anger and smashed it to pieces.
A world without time and life force is a complete failure.
This fusion experiment had already been repeated over and over again, and the same results were obtained every time.
Saath finally couldn’t help but angrily sweep the countless ability cores and crystal nuclei around him to the ground. But as his line of sight unintentionally crossed over the latest major news displayed on the quantum brain, his actions suddenly stopped.
——【In recent days, it has been revealed that the little prince of the Nemo race’s royal family has been missing for three years.】
In that moment, Saath remembered an ancient legend that had been circulating in the interstellar world and his eyes suddenly burst with profound light.
It is said that every prince of the Nemo Royal Family was born with inherent power to control space-time and vitality.
Baobei could also mean treasure. Nie Xiao probably thought WuYi was talking about a big baby.
Innocent Xiao WuYi: Daddy, Baby has a big [baby] to [give] you!
Stiff Adult Nie Xiao: Don’t make noise! [I don’t want another baby!]
Edit: HOLD UP! Someone in the comments section enlightened me. I thought too innocently, while they thought Nie Xiao was thinking that WuYi was going to show his pp. YOU’RE FREE TO THINK WHATEVER hahahahh
