When Beauty Meets Beasts - Chapter 879
879 Side Story Three
After returning, she thought for a long time but could not think of a way to get the best of both worlds.
In the end, she could only turn to the almighty Daddy System.
“Little Brat, what do you think I should do?”
Little Brat replied very firmly, “If it were me, I definitely wouldn’t resurrect the demon king!”
“But he saved me, and he lost his life for me.”
“So what? He’s a demon king who kills without batting an eyelid. What if he kills the innocent in the future? Can you bear the responsibility?!”
Huanhuan couldn’t answer.
Logic told her that Little Brat was right.
But emotionally, she could not make such a cold and decisive choice.
Seeing that she was in a dilemma, Little Brat slowly added, “If you really want to make it up to him, then resurrect him.”
“But what if he kills innocent people?”
Little Brat said, “Your youngest son is a heaven-devouring python. His lethality is not much lower than the Soul-Devouring Vine. Didn’t you still raise him well?”
“That’s true, but Clement is different from Xing Chen. Clement is my son. I can’t ignore him…”
“But you don’t look like you can ignore Xing Chen either.”
Huanhuan was speechless.
“Since you can’t bear to ignore him, proceed with your plan. If Xing Chen really wants to cause trouble, let your precious youngest son eat him. The heaven-devouring python vs the Soul-Devouring Vine. Just thinking about it makes me feel that it’ll be super exciting!”
What the hell was with his expectant tone?!
Although she suspected that Little Brat suggested resurrecting Xing Chen to watch a good show, what he said was not unreasonable.
She was no longer the little girl who could not even protect herself.
She was now the prophet of the 10,000 Beast Temple. She had four very powerful male beast companions, 12 divine guards, and eight precious children with unlimited potential for growth.
She was full of confidence and did not need to be afraid at all.
Huanhuan made up her mind to revive Xing Chen.
However, resurrecting was not an easy task.
She ran to the altar to contact Yin Ji.
“I want to revive Xing Chen!”
Yin Ji was not surprised by her decision. He said gently, “I wish you success.”
“Thank you. I have a few questions I’d like to ask you. Is it convenient for you to help?”
“I’ve never raised the Soul-Devouring Vine. I don’t know what to do now. Do I have to find a flowerpot to plant him? Does he like to bask in the sun? Should I water him every few days? Will insects be attracted to him? Should I get him some fertilizer? Will ordinary fertilizer and insect repellent work on him? Hmm? Yin Ji, are you listening? Yin Ji!”
She called Yin Ji’s name a few more times and realized that he had already cut off the connection.
Yin Ji found her annoying and ran away.
Huanhuan could only look for Little Brat to ask for advice. At first, Little Brat ignored her, but later on, he was annoyed and simply covered his ears and pretended not to hear.
Thus, she had no choice but to seek advice from the tree people who were best at planting.
The patriarch and elders of the tree people were very happy. They loved to discuss their experience in planting.
After a month of frequent discussion and experimentation, the seed of the Soul-Devouring Vine finally germinated.
As a demonic creature, the Soul-Devouring Vine grew in a unique environment. He did not like soil or water. He had to rely on Huanhuan to grow.
Little Brat was also very surprised.
“You’re the Divine Wood, and the Soul-Devouring Vine is a demonic creature. Logically speaking, you should be the Soul-Devouring Vine’s nemesis. He’ll be injured as soon as he touches you. Why would he rely on you like a mother?”
Huanhuan’s face turned expressionless. “Does he think of me as his mother?”
“That’s right. Doesn’t he look like a son who’s attached to his mother?!”
Although she really did not want to admit it, Huanhuan was unable to refute.
‘Forget it. So be it. I’ll just treat it as adopting a son.’
Anyway, she already had eight children. One more wouldn’t matter.
She comforted herself in her heart.
The Soul-Devouring Vine wrapped around Huanhuan every day, causing the lotus to be dissatisfied.
However, the lotus could not defeat the Soul-Devouring Vine and did not dare to provoke him. It could only secretly be envious and jealous.
When the Soul-Devouring Vine had just sprouted, Huanhuan could still hide him from others. However, as time passed, he grew bigger and bigger, and he became more and more restless. He often appeared from her sleeve when she was unprepared.
In the end, he was discovered by Shuang Yun.
Shuang Yun did not know that he was the Soul-Devouring Vine. She thought that he was a new pet raised by Huanhuan, so he did not take him seriously.
That was until Bai Di and Xue Ling returned from the abyss.
They had already found Lin Qing’s corpse and scattered his ashes into the sea, fulfilling Lin Qing’s wish.
Bai Di and Xue Ling, who had not seen the little female for a long time, were about to get intimate with her when they entered. Unexpectedly, just as they touched her face, a black vine darted out of her sleeve and pounced at the two of them!
Fortunately, the two of them reacted very quickly. They reached out at the same time and grabbed the vine of the Soul-Devouring Vine.
The sneak attack failed. The Soul-Devouring Vine struggled with all his might.
Xue Ling looked at the vine in his hand and immediately frowned. “Is this the Soul-Devouring Vine?!”
When Shuang Yun heard this, he was very surprised. “Isn’t this Huanhuan’s new pet? Huanhuan even named him Little Xing.”
Bai Di said in a deep voice, “There’s only one Soul-Devouring Vine in this world. His name is Xing Chen.”
Xing Chen… Little Xing…
The three of them looked at Huanhuan in unison as if they were accusing her of being a heartless woman!
Huanhuan felt guilty under their gaze.
She subconsciously took two steps back. At the same time, she took off the lotus on her head and placed it in front of her to increase her sense of security.
Although the lotus was also very afraid, it still stubbornly bloomed its petals like a shield to protect its mother.
Huanhuan forced herself to quibble. “I don’t know anything. This is the seed I casually picked up outside. I planted it and it grew. I didn’t know that it was the Soul-Devouring Vine. Don’t look at me like that.”
Xue Ling sneered. “In that case, let’s burn the Soul-Devouring Vine to prevent him from causing so much trouble when he grows up.”
With that, flames appeared in his palm as he pretended to burn the vines.
She quickly stopped him. “Don’t! He’s still a child. Don’t be so cruel!”
“Have you forgotten what Xing Chen did back then? Even if he’s just a child, he’s still full of danger.”
In order to prevent Xing Chen from being burned, Huanhuan argued, “I’ll work hard to raise him, just like how I raised Clement. I won’t let him walk the same path as before. Please believe me this time!”
When he heard her compare Xing Chen with Clement, Shuang Yun couldn’t help but ask, “If Clement is your son, what about Xing Chen? What do you treat him as?”
Huanhuan said calmly, “I treat him as my son.”
Bai Di, Shuang Yun, and Xue Ling: “…”
When they thought about how the devil who had stirred up trouble in the past was actually going to become their son, they actually felt a little excited!
The three of them looked at the Soul-Devouring Vine kindly.
