Chapter 1281: How a tadpole swims in.

Her mother answered, ‘You are the crystallization of mommy’s and daddy’s love. We love each other, so we have you!’
She remained ignorant about the matters of men and women until she reached her adolescence of twelve or thirteen. Only then did the school have physiology classes. She still remembered the shy shrieks from her classmates when the teacher showed them the different physiological structure of men and women.
From those physiological lessons, she intuitively understood that her birth could not simply be explained by ‘crystallization of love’.
Thus, she gave her son an explanation. “Darling, have you seen a tadpole before?”
He nodded. “Yes! Tadpoles are really small, black in color, and have a long tail; they’re really cute!”
“At the beginning, you and your brother were small tadpoles in daddy’s body.”
His eyes widened in amazement. “Eh? I’m a little tadpole in daddy’s body?”
As he spoke, his curious gaze landed on his father, sizing him up. As if he wished he had X-ray vision, his eyes widened so big that they looked as if they would pierce through his body.
Mu Yazhe fell silent.
That was a good explanation.
She then explained, “When mommy and daddy got together afterward, that tadpole in his body swam into my body!”
“Pfft!” The man could not help bursting into laughter.
With reddening face, she flew into a rage out of humiliation and lifted her head to glare at him. “Do you have any objection to my explanation?”
His face quickly assumed a mask of solemnness. “Nope.”
She covered her face in vexation, belatedly realizing that her explanation sounded even dirtier!
However, in Yichen’s eyes, this was an extremely mysterious process! Although he was still unable to comprehend it fully, he got a more vivid and graphic impression from her explanation!
Using metaphors, she continued roughly explaining to him how the ‘little tadpoles’, after swimming into her body, developed into babies and were finally born.
At the end of her explanation, the boy still remained perplexed. “I almost fully understood what mommy is saying!”
“Well, well! Little Yichen is the best!”
He then threw out a thorny question out of the blue. “The point is that I’m not a little tadpole; what I don’t understand is how did I swim from daddy’s body to yours?”
His parents were completely stumped.
It seemed that they could not underestimate the child’s thirst for knowledge.
In a way, it was extremely distressing to answer the various perplexities of this child perfectly!
“Mommy can’t answer that, too?” The boy pouted wryly, apparently a little disappointed.
She blushed in shame. “This…”
The man flicked his finger at his son’s forehead. “Little fool, you won’t understand it even if we explain!”
Looking aggrieved, he hugged his forehead in pain as he glared at his father. His fragile little heart seemed to have been hurt. “Daddy, you bully me… Are you bullying me because I’m stupid?”
“Pfft!” The woman chuckled.
Did this child need to be so honest? How silly and cute!
“Mommy, you’re laughing at me, too…” he whined accusingly.
His father said, “Little fool, go ask Youyou about this; he’ll give you a satisfactory answer!”
