"Is Qianqian willing to give the toys back to Youyou, then?"
Yun Shishi gently led her on. When she saw that the little girl was wavering while looking dismayed, she added, "Wait for aunt. I'll go win a pair for you, too. All right?"
As soon as Youyou heard that, his blood ran cold as his face paled.
At the thought of his mother going through the trouble of playing the game again just to satisfy the imp, his heart throbbed with a dull pain.
Therefore, when Qianqian reluctantly returned the toys to Youyou, he gritted his teeth and pushed them back to her, pretending to be magnanimous. "I don't want them anymore! I'm giving you these toys!"
Qianqian's eyes nearly popped out from shock. Jiang Li was astonished by Youyou's maturity and generosity and prompted her daughter right away. "Qianqian, quickly thank Youyou!"
"Thank you, big brother! Thank you, big brother! Qianqian loves big brother the most!"
He turned away pridefully.
He did not like her at all!
Yun Shishi gently stroked his head as her heart ached at him needing to be generous and mature. "Youyou is so sweet and knows to let go for a younger sister!"
"I can't stoop to the same level as a kid." Youyou helplessly shrugged before he spouted these words where Jiang Li could not hear them.
Yun Shishi did not know whether to laugh or cry.
Did he forget that he was also a child when he said that?
Actually, his willingness to give away the toys to the little girl surprised her. She then thought of gifting him with another toy.
Hence, she halted her steps when her eyes caught sight of a toy panda, about 1.5 meters tall, on another stall's display shelf.
"Youyou, do you like that one?"
"I do, but… "
"Alright! Wait a bit for mommy!"
She stepped forward to play the game after saying that.
To win the prize, one had to pop 20 balloons in 60 seconds using the toy gun provided.
Yun Shishi's eyes lit up with determination. She had 60 seconds to burst 20 balloons. This was not too difficult of a task.
She showed prowess in shooting back when she was undergoing military training in university. Hence, she had some confidence in winning the prize.
However, the moment she lifted the toy gun, the confidence she had was entirely dispelled.
It was unusually heavy.
It had the same weight and size as that gun she had used for target practice during the military training, but she did not feel comfortable holding this replica as it seemed to be of poor quality.
She weighed it in her hands and managed to get used to it, albeit with some difficulty.
The staff came over and was about to inquire when she flashed him her VIP ticket. He got the message upon seeing the ticket and told her the rules of the game.
She lost some of her spirit when he explained the rules.
It turned out that skill alone would not do to succeed in the game; one required a stroke of luck as well.
Not only must one pop the balloons, a point token would fall for every successful attempt, one also had to burst 20 balloons in 60 seconds and accumulate a total of 200 points!
It was quite challenging!
No pain, no gain, indeed.
However, even though it was challenging, since she was already here, why should she not enjoy the game?!
The game, thus, began.
The shot she fired did hit the target accurately, but the balloon did not pop!
Still, generally speaking, the smaller the balloon was, the more resilient it was at being punctured. The bullets from the toy gun did not have a powerful impact. If the shot was fired at an inaccurate angle, even if it did hit the balloon, the balloon would not pop.
The balloons were simply springy enough to bounce the bullets off.
Five shots were consecutively fired off, yet all did not puncture even one balloon.
She was undoubtedly stumped by this challenge.
