Chapter 118: Believe in Bai Yan! (1)


Holly chuckled with a mouthful of cream, and cut another piece of cake with a knife in her hand, then stuffed it into her mouth while making smacking sounds.

"Oh, it's so touching. It's really delicious. By the way, do you think I might not gain too much weight if I have three 'cheat meals' a week?"

Her rabbit's ears twitched slightly, making Holly appear truly excited.

A piece of cake was left for Black Vulture, while the remaining cake was divided among Bai Yan, Adelaide, and the big guy… and as for the rest, it all went into the rabbit's belly.

Holly suddenly realized that this group of people were all staring at her, especially that guy Bai Yan, who kept looking at her belly!

"Don't look at me like that with those eyes, ╰(<em>°▽°</em>)╯, oh my, it's just because I usually burn more calories, that's why I ate so much… and besides, I paid for this cake!"

"But it's the captain's birthday today, not yours."

Bai Yan said calmly, realizing that he seemed to enjoy arguing with her.

"Men who are so serious about such small things may not find girlfriends." Holly had a serious expression.

"Can you say that again while looking me in the face?"

"Not all women are obsessed with appearance! And you don't have a girlfriend, do you?"

"I am not in a hurry."

Holly shook her head and said with a smile, "Oh my, I am different. When I come of age, I will immediately find a good husband to marry!"

"Why are you in such a hurry?"

Holly said, "I'm anxious about giving birth, because I can only live until my early thirties."

Bai Yan was stunned on the chair, feeling as if theory of life had suddenly stabbed him in the back.

Holly also faltered, saying, "Don't you know? The lifespan of half-orcs is even shorter than that of orcs. Living up to forty is considered a ripe old age."

The pleasant mood of the past few tens of minutes began to gradually diminish.

Observing the girl's countenance devoid of despondency, Bai Yan's emotions gradually became intricate. He spoke calmly, "Mmm… I wasn't aware before."

Holly seemed to notice something and said with a smile, "Oh, don't you sympathize with me either. Aren't you humans also unable to live as long as elves, and you haven't seen anyone self-pity and lament every day, have you?"

She paused for a moment, calmly saying, "Moreover, I am an extraordinary person, perhaps I will live longer…I just…want my parents to see that I am no longer a child before they leave."

"Let's skip this topic." The big guy shook his head and seemed to recall some memories in his eyes. "Our birthday star is celebrating today, everyone please try to talk about something happy."

At this moment, Bai Yan suddenly noticed that Adelaide was acting strangely.

She had been keeping her head down, smiling faintly while listening to the argument between Holly and Bai Yan, holding a partially lit lady cigarette.

For some reason, Adelaide's expression became very struggling at the moment, and she seemed to be trying hard to restrain herself. The cigarette in her hand was also shaking constantly.

"Captain?" Bai Yan couldn't help but ask.


Adelaide's voice trembled, with a hint of tears.

Bai Yan was stunned, not knowing what was going on with her, and the big guy and Holly also noticed that something was wrong.

Her fragile appearance was unseen by anyone present.

What's the matter?

Bai Yan furrowed his brows, sensing a strong feeling of unease. Adelaide's face showed a struggling smile, as if mocking herself.

"Oh, could it be that I have eaten too much cake?" Holly immediately panicked and said, "I'm sorry, it was my mistake. I shouldn't have said something that would make people unhappy."

"Holly, it's fine. I'm very happy!"

Adelaide completely changed from tears to laughter, shook her head, and waved her hand to indicate that she was okay.

"It's nothing, I'm just too happy, too excited."

The big guy still frowned, and Bai Yan couldn't forget the scene just now.

Holly patted her small chest and said with a smile, "Great, I thought you were angry again. I remember when you first became the captain, you were always unpredictable, getting mad and even hitting people!"

"I'm sorry," Adelaide shook her head and apologized with a smile.

"Over the years, the captain has softened," the big guy said calmly, "no longer keeping his distance from us."

Bai Yan silently looked at Adelaide's face, suddenly remembering two things.

When he first met her, Adelaide wasn't very polite and directly claimed him to be a new "problem child."

He initially assumed that this was just her temperament.

However, she also got angry at him in the car later on, but immediately lost her temper when he responded in kind.

In recent days, Bai Yan has increasingly come to realize that Adelaide's true nature is not that of a domineering person… Especially after hearing what Holly and the big guy said.

She deliberately kept her distance from others…this was the only conclusion Bai Yan could draw.

But what was the reason?

Bai Yan didn't know.

He only knew that at least today Adelaide had let go of her disguise and showed a happy smile.


Inside the Babel Tower.

Soft music lingered as it was time for the staff's lunch break.

In the white gigantic research center, the interior of the hall, which was entirely made of metal, had rows and rows of metal tables and chairs.

On the table, pots of well-balanced and nutritious food magically appeared, one after another.

Despite the fact that each pot was filled with nutritious food and had a balanced ratio, their appearance was extremely unappetizing, looking like a big blob of colorful slime.

The door slowly opened on the white wall of the hall.
