“Uncle Treeleaf!” Litter Grape and Little Apple shouted excitedly as they ran towards Ye Xun.
Ye Xun wanted to hug them like he always did, but losing one arm stopped him from doing that.
Little Grape ran into his arm and kept asking him to throw him in the air.
When Little Apple tried to grab Ye Xun’s left arm, he found out nothing was inside the sleeve.
“Where’s your arm?” Little Apple asked.
Thinking that the question might hurt Ye Xun, Jing Xi tried to change the subject, but Ye Xun explained his situation to the kids himself.
“A bomb took my arm away in the war.” Ye Xun smiled. “I’m sorry, but I can’t throw any of you in the air anymore.”
“Then… Does it hurt?” Little Grape asked as he tried to massage where Ye Xun’s arm was amputated.
Little Grape also joined his brother and said, “I’m going to invent a machine arm for you when I grow up! Then Uncle Treeleaf can become Superman!”
“Okay! I’ll wait for you.” Ye Xun laughed as he patted the little kids’ heads.
Ying Bao was also staring at Ye Xun’s empty left sleeve. Knowing that he’d lost his arm, Ying Bao was deeply saddened by it.
Ye Xun heard a faint sob and turned to see the little girl standing at the door with tears in her eyes.
“My daughter! Come and let me have a good look at you!”
Ying Bao had always been the closest to Ye Xun. Ye Xun felt really bad as he saw her cry.
Ying Bao ran into his hug and cried.
“Come on, I’m still perfectly fine, aren’t I?” Ye Xun smiled as he lifted her up. “Look, I can still lift you up.”
“Wait! Let me down!”
Ying Bao didn’t want to harm Ye Xun even further since she had gotten heavier than when she was younger.
Ying Bao then sobbed and asked, “Are you really marrying Auntie Sanyan this time?”
“Of course I am! I’m 100% sure of it!”
“Then, you’ll be our uncle for real this time!”
“Wait, does a man have to lose one arm to become someone else’s uncle?”
“What? Who told you that?”
“The wuxia novel that Uncle Jin Yong wrote!”
Everyone couldn’t help but laugh when they heard Ying Bao referencing Jin Yong’s The Return of the Condor Heroes.
In the story, the main protagonist, Yang Guo, had to go through twists and turns, even losing an arm to be with the one he loved.
Ye Xun and Huo Sanyan also had a similar story. They finally got together, not before going through a lot of setbacks.
It showed them that obstacles will always be present to reach true love. Happiness was not something that could be achieved easily.
And that was what made happiness precious.
Both Ye Xun and Huo Sanyan stayed at the palace for lunch before heading off to Bai Yanchuan’s mansion.
Ning Luoxiao had been staying in the mansion for quite some time. Yet, when they arrived, Ning Luoxiao was the only one at home, and Bai Yanchuan was nowhere to be found.
