Chapter 1834: Mengchen’s Call
Right before them were Luo Bin and Lin Xue.
To Luo Puti, this gift was far more important and far more valuable than all the other gifts Chen Xiaobei had presented her!
The ice in her heart began to chip away one piece after another, melting in the warmth of family love.
The troubled heart that caused Luo Puti to sacrifice her youth was now unraveled!
“Dad! Mum!” Luo Puti threw her arms around her foster parents, bawling like a misunderstood little girl.
Chen Xiaobei left the Star Plucking Deck to give them some privacy.
He thought he was going to bed Luo Puti today but obviously, it was not a good time.
Star Plucking Deck.
Chen Xiaobei had Helian Tulong brought to him.
The two soldiers who were escorting the captive threw him to Chen Xiaobei’s feet.
“You can leave.” Chen Xiaobei waved them off.
With his Dantian destroyed and the severity of his injuries, Helian Tulong could not stand himself up. So, he remained on the ground, pleading, “Childe Zhufeng… Have mercy… Please have mercy on me… I know that I was wrong… I will never do it again…”
“Huh?” Chen Xiaobei looked down at him. “Weren’t you very certain that you no longer cared for your useless life? Aren’t you scared?”
“Yes… I’m terrified… I’m absolutely terrified. I was just pretending to be brave…” Helian Tulong confessed. “I thought that I could scare you using my lineage… but after what I’ve seen, I understand now that my family cannot compare to you… I won’t pretend anymore… I don’t want to die… I really don’t want to die…”
Chen Xiaobei sniffed. “I actually thought that you had a backbone but I guess I overestimated you! Apparently, you’re just a scared fool!”
Helian Tulong nodded profusely. “Yes, yes, yes! I’m scared! I’m afraid to die…. Please have mercy… Forgive me…”
“Open your mouth!” Chen Xiaobei took out a Heavenly Dog Biscuit. “Here. Eat this, and you can live. Also, I can cure your Dantian!”
“Really…? Okay! I’ll eat it! Give it to me, now! I’m willing to eat it…” Helian Tulong’s eyes widened, looking at the biscuit hungrily.
Helian Tulong was now useless, and may very well be dead soon.
If eating a dog biscuit could change this pathetic fate, Helian Tulong was more than willing to do it!
After he ate the biscuit and acknowledged Chen Xiaobei as his master, he was given a Taiyi Life Enhancement pill.
The pill was made according to a formula from the Heavenly Realm. Although it was not as good as a Divine Pill, it was a lot better than primitive human medicine from the human realm.
In his time back on earth, Chen Xiaobei had already been using the Taiyi Life Enhancement pill to restore people’s Dantian.
“What a miraculous pill… I feel much better already…” Helian Tulong could feel his body healing gradually.
Because Helian Tulong’s health was much stronger than the cultivators back on earth, the effects were unable to take full effect instantaneously.
Chen Xiaobei took out nine more of the Taiyi Life Enhancement pills and some high-grade Spiritual Medicines.
“Take one pill every three days. Make a broth out of the Spiritual Medicine and drink one bowl every night before going bed! Your Dantian should recover completely after a month!”
“Thank you, master! You are my huge benefactor….” Helian Tulong was so happy, feeling like he had just been born again.
“Alright, that’s it. Go find somewhere to tend to your injuries! You should know what to do about your family!” Chen Xiaobei signaled for him to leave.
“Don’t worry, master! I will make sure that my family knows that you are my friend and that Saint Duke is also my friend! I promise that my family will not bring trouble to Saint Duke. We’ll even help Saint Duke in every way possible!”
“Go ahead!” Chen Xiaobei nodded. He was one hundred percent confident in his loyal hound.
Helian Tulong nodded, took out a long cape and left the place stealthily.
Helian Tulong had a special identity. Keeping him alive would also keep the Helian family pacified in the short term.
In the long term, it would prove to be really helpful to Chen Xiaobei in Apocalypse starfield.
Giving Helian Tulong the Heavenly Dog Biscuit was worth every penny it cost!
After a while, Luo Puti came down the Star Plucking Deck with her foster parents.
Luo Bin and Lin Xue, again, repeatedly expressed their gratitude towards Chen Xiaobei.
When they found out about Chen Xiaobei’s proposal to Luo Puti, they were as pleased as Punch.
To them, Chen Xiaobei was the perfect son-in-law.
“Alright!” Luo Bin said, grinning. “Xiaobei, your auntie Lin and I have been the third wheel for long enough. We’ll give you some privacy!”
Lin Xue smiled cheekily. “Xiaobei! You have to gentle with Puti! She’s still a girl!”
“I know… I know…” Chen Xiaobei rubbed his forehead, grinning like an idiot.
“Dad! Mum! Don’t leave! I didn’t say I want to be alone with Xiaobei!” Luo Puti blushed.
But her parents were already far away.
“Come over here!” Chen Xiaobei grinned teasingly at his fiancé, pulling her into his arms. “Sooner or later, you’re mine! Don’t you think of escaping!”
“If that’s the case, then why are you rushing?” Luo Puti murmured shyly. “Let me go! I don’t want my parents to misunderstand!”
“I’m not letting go!” Chen Xiaobei cocked an eyebrow at her. “I meant that you’re mine all the time! Be it sooner or later!”
“You…” Luo Puti had gone completely crimson at this point.
“Come! Let’s kiss…” Chen Xiaobei beamed, ready to unleash his long-unused lips and tongue.
Ding! Ring! Ring!
“Urgh! Who picked this time to call?! I’m not taking it!” Chen Xiaobei was going to reject the call when he saw the name on the screen – Lan Mengcheng.
“Did she leave earth with you?” Luo Puti saw the name, too.
“Go ahead and pick up! I don’t mind!” Luo Puti removed herself from Chen Xiaobei’s arms.
“I… No… That’s not okay…” Chen Xiaobei was feeling really guilty.
“What’s not okay about that? Coming to Saint Duke, I’ve seen many men practice polygamy! Take my uncle Luo Shanhe for example. He has 23 wives! You are ten thousand times more outstanding compared to my eighth uncle! There’s no reason for you to marry only one woman!”
“I..” Chen Xiaobei could feel a trickle of sweat run down the back of his neck.
“Pick up the call! What if she’s in danger? You don’t want to have any regrets later on!” Luo Puti said.
“Oh… Okay…” Chen Xiaobei knew that Lan Mengcheng would not have called unless it was something important.
When he picked up the call, the expression on his face changed dramatically.
