The ceiling had been specially decorated with star-shaped nightlights of different sizes. At night, with the nightlights on, the ceiling would be transformed into a starry sky.
Huo Yunshen had carefully picked out everything in the room for Ying Bao, from the Minnie bed sheets and the decorative lamps to the toys and the storybooks on the colorful bookshelves.
Ying Bao’s jaw dropped when she entered the room.
Wow, what a beautiful room!
It was covered in her favorite colors, and she absolutely adored the Minnie patterns.
It was the prettiest room she had ever seen. Surely only a beautiful princess was worthy of living in it?
“Wow~ It’s just as pretty as a princess’s room in a fairy tale. I love it.”
Ying Bao skipped around the room, unable to contain her excitement. “Daddy, are you sure I’m allowed to stay in such a pretty room?”

The three of them finished their dinner, showered, and climbed into bed.
Huo Yunshen lay on Ying Bao’s left, while Xu Xiyan lay on her right. Ying Bao lay between them, enveloped in happiness. She couldn’t stop smiling.
