722 Caution!

    As the attendant looked at her in shock, Ling Lan slowly walked up the stairs. She saw a whole house of dolls and soft toys. Surprisingly, a few bulky men, from majors to lieutenant colonels, were standing in front of the shelves of the soft toys with a troubled look.

    The attendants that should be attending to them were nowhere in sight. They might have frightened them away or they might be busy with other customers.

    Ling Lan was walking past them but when a cold-looking lieutenant colonel saw her, his eyes lit up as though he saw his life savior. He hurriedly called out, "Excuse me..."

    Ling Lan stopped in her tracks. She looked at the person curiously. Why did he call her?

    "Erm, sorry to disturb you. My daughter is around the same age as you. I want to buy something for her. What kind of dolls do girls your age..." The officer's face turned gentle when he talked about his daughter. At that moment, he realized he wasn't sure what gender the person in front of him was. He looked at Ling Lan's epaulette and got a shock. "I'm sorry, major."

    If this person is a major, he should be a man. The lieutenant colonel knew although there were many outstanding women in the military, their rise in rank would be much slower than a man would. The new generation was even more stringent towards women, so to be a major while being a young female was quite unlikely.

    Ling Lan knew without her force of presence, such situations would definitely happen. However, she had a good impression of this lieutenant colonel. It might be because he reminded her of her father, Ling Xiao. Both of them pampered their daughter very much.

    Thinking about this, she nodded and said, "How old is your daughter?" She had read many novels and mangas in her past life. Even if she didn't have a clear idea of what girls in this world like, it should be similar to her own experiences.

    "She is 15 years old." The lieutenant colonel's eyes turned gentle. He had not seen her for three years. Is she doing well?

    15 years old... a young lady. She should like cute things like me. Ling Lan pointed to a cute soft toy. "This one."

    The lieutenant colonel looked at the round ball which had a dumb-looking face on it. He couldn't tell what this was. Would his daughter like it? However, since someone of a similar age chose it, it should be right. The lieutenant colonel thought for a moment and decided to listen to the young man. He took the soft toy.

    The officers around them had been eavesdropping on their conversation. The moment the lieutenant colonel took the soft toy, they hurriedly grab the rest too.

    These officers shopped together to buy gifts for their daughters. To maintain their fierce and stern image, they rejected the help of the attendants and wanted to do it themselves. However, they underestimated the complexity of a young girl's mind. They looked at all the soft toys dejectedly. After thinking for a long time, they still didn't know what to buy.

    Luckily, one of them was smart enough to grab a young man who was of a similar age. This young man helped them solved their problems.

    After they paid for the soft toy, they suddenly remembered the minimum age to enter the military was 18 years old. If the young man was from the military academy, he should be at least 21 years old now... how could there be such a young major?

    They turned back but the young man was nowhere in sight. It was as though he never here... the officers felt a chill down their spine. Did they see something they shouldn't have?

    After Ling Lan helped these officers, she walked towards the resting area which was located deeper in the shop.

    Ling Lan liked those soft toys but she couldn't buy them. To prevent herself from being tempted by the soft toys, she decisively waited in the resting area for Han Xuya and Luo Chao to finish shopping. That way, she would not feel the pain of not being able to buy what she wanted.

    Ling Lan was smart and logical. She didn't give herself any chance to make a mistake. She sat on the sofa and flipped through the internal information viewable only to a major on her communicator, trying to find some useful information.

    Suddenly, her pocket started bulging. A few white lines slowly weaved out of her pocket. Very soon, something white and round popped out of her pocket. It surveyed its surroundings before climbing out. It was Little White, the creature Ling Lan smuggled from the Planet Juhao.

    It noticed its master was focused on her communicator and wasn't paying attention to it. It was elating. It wanted to leave Ling Lan and shop somewhere else. However, just as it was about to escape, a slender hand grabbed it.

    "Ouch!" It hurts! Little White looked at its master with tears in its eyes. Didn't she know it hurts to pinch someone?

    With its size and its expression, Little White could win over the hearts of 99.99% of young girls. Even Ling Lan felt her heart softening. But, the brutal training in the learning space made her firm. She raised her eyebrows and looked at Little White dangerously. "Painful? Hmph!"

    How dare it used its spiritual power against her? No wonder she lost her concentration for a moment. Was Little White looking for death?

    Little White knew it had angered its master. It lowered its head to show its master it knew its mistake. It also held Ling Lan's finger with some of its tentacles and pulled it lightly. It seemed to be whining and asking her for forgiveness.

    Ling Lan wanted to laugh. After leaving the Planet Juhao, Little White's intelligence seemed to have increased. It didn't know where Little White learned this cute action from. Every time she wanted to scold it, it would use this expression to get away...

    Little Four heard his boss's thoughts and hurriedly ran away.

    "Little White, there is a limit to my patience. This is the last time. If you disobey me again, you will disappear permanently," Ling Lan threatened in a calm tone.

    She liked Little White's cuteness but she knew what it really was. If she didn't manage to subdue it, Little White could cause huge damage to the human world. Ling Lan couldn't let that happen. Hence, she must watch over Little White carefully and prevent it from going out of her sight.
