Black Eggs loves green - so vegetables are da da da king !
Uncle is Mean! He gave Black an injection! Black Eggs becomes a watering can - why is Uncle smiling?!
Underneath the infant moved, Ji Huan looked at grandfather's dim eyes, he unwrapped the bundle he had been holding tightly, in swaddled clothing the "baby" finally exposed it's face.
A terrifying face.
Like a blanket of darkness, any one who first saw this face would not think this is a part of a human baby's, between "Black Mist" There were two white rings, when Ji Huan opened the scarf, two "rings" unerringly pointed straight towards Ji Huan's location. When grandfather moved near the "rings" quickly turned towards the direction of the elder.
The two "Rings" are the child's eyes.
The child's eyes are odd, whites are abnormally white while the pupils are enlarged and black like the night.
It was a little face which gave people the creeps just looking at it.
The first time he saw the child, Ji Huan didn't sleep that night. He would fall asleep have nightmares and woke up to see the child again, just like a living nightmare.
Anyone with common sense knew that this child was wrong, Ji Huan naturally knew, but his sister had entrusted her child to him, her child is all Ji Huan has left of her -
He bought a very strong backpack, and then went into the baby product store.
No trace of hesitation, he will bring this terrible child back.
"A little baby, I can not see ah ...... this, looks a bit dark?" Grandpa trembling asked, Ji Huan is glad Grandfather has lost his sight.
"Ah he's a bit dark." Ji Huan replied without blinking an eye.
"Black is all right, when your sister was born she was also black, then white with lots of milk, yes, you bought him milk yet? Oh! No, I heard that children who drink domestic milk have alot of issues, you have to buy imported ...... "
The old man had been struggling with the news of his granddaughter's death, perhaps his eyes turned blind from crying. When Ji Huan brought back this child, the only consolation for the elder, it was the last straw, he could not wait and carefully touched the child's little face.
Old rough, wrinkled fingers gently scraped across a small forehead, suddenly dark little paws, exploring, grabs onto the elders index finger.
Bird claws, real "claws", although it can barely be seen it's divided into five fingers, above are sharp nails, it barely resembled a human baby's hands, it looks more like the paw of some legendary monsters!
However, grabbed by horrible little paws, grandfather laughed.
Eyes squinting grandfather laughed heartily.
"This child, really awkward."The old man laughed as tears came out.
Grandpa looked at the bundle and smiled, Ji Huan was startled, then he smiled, bowed his head, he caught the small black birds paws in time to stop the little guy's impulse to explore, not resisting Ji Huan, the little hand retreated back to the infant, and then use a scarf rewrapped the bundle of swaddling clothes, but this time, the little guy sharp little claws didn't stick out.
Yes, the child was born with nails, very sharp nails in fact, on several occasions, While Ji Huan was feeding him, he'd been scratched. He didn't want Grandpa getting hurt, so Ji Huan chose to detain the little baby through wraps.
"His hands are cold." In order not to arouse the attention of grandfather, Ji Huan made an excuse.
"Ah! Right, right! Weather's so cold, cold for the child is bad, I'll go open the heating, yes, have to heat the water for baby milk, right? Xiao Hua had not eaten ...... "mouth nattering, grandfather hastily turned away, secretly wiped his teary eyes with one hand, he immediately wanted to go into the kitchen.
Following Huan hastily stopped him.
Checking the infant inside had been completely wrapped by the scarf and was unable to move, Ji Huan placed the infant into the arms of grandfather, took the apron from grandfather rolled up his sleeves and went to the kitchen.
clean vegetables, cut vegetables, ignition, wok, put in oil.
Ji Huan actions weren't fast, before grandfather had not let him cook.
But he's often in the kitchen, along the way had seen alot, the cooking steps were thoroughly cooked into his heart. When the oil's hot, Ji Huan also set a pot of water to boil.
Two hot dishes and rice on the table, Ji Huan placed three meals before the niche, and thought, then added another plate.
A deserted and icy room full of sandalwood incense and food, began to warm up.
After the water boiled, then checked to make sure it was cool enough, Ji Huan turned back to retrive the third duffel bag which at the moment was completely stuffed full of baby items.
Opening the bag he retrived a bottle of milk. Ji Huan carefully followed the instructions on the bottle and made a bottle of milk.
Once this is done, Ji Huan holding the bottle, walked back to the table.
In dim lighting, grandfather maintained the previous posture, sitting next to the table, Ji Huan had not come, he refused to eat, the old man gently rocking the small infant, his face looked peaceful and serene.
The elder could not see the baby he was holding in his arms was staring at his face unblinkedly. White circles peeping up at the elder, it looked very strange.
"Grandpa, eat. Give me the child, he'll drink milk." From grandfather Ji Huan picked up the tiny infant, then sat across from grandfather.
Two white circles instantly locked onto him.
Blankly looking at the little child, he picked up the bottle and with skillful arms aligned it with the child's mouth. Seeing the milk decreasing within the bottle, Ji Huan did not continue looking, his left hand holding the infant, his right hand picked up a pair of chopsticks, he clipped a large piece of meat and placed it within his Grandfather's bowl.
"Grandpa, have some meat."
