The Idol Group Pet Became a Final Boss! - chapter 40
Xiang Yi’s actions shocked countless people in front of the screen.
Even the staff members on site were startled.
They thought Xiang Yi was just boasting, but they didn’t think she actually knew how to chop wood!
Yan Nai’s gaze widened with shock.
She really… did it…
Suddenly, a soft and quiet voice was heard. “It’s not that you’re not strong enough, the issue lies in the technique used. Try this.”
“Heh?” Yan Nai paused for a moment before realizing Xiang Yi was addressing him.
She slowed down as her voice became patient, explaining the process in a very logical way. Yan Nai actually managed to split a smaller piece of wood after listening to her and trying it!
Yan Zhenhua was happy to see this, but he was a typical male chauvinist character as he snorted. “Hmph, you’ve only chopped one piece. What’s there to be happy about.”
He didn’t think it was anything. After all, Yan Nai’s grandfather, or his father, had taught him in the same way.
Yan Nai’s eyes that had just lit up gradually dimmed.
The live comments: [Is Yan Zhenhua poisonous? How hard is it to praise your son? Why do you have to attack him like that??]
The “thump thump” of a clap sounded off from Xiang Yi as she cheered him on. “Great job.”
Yan Nai squeezed the wooden handle of the axe sheepishly. “It’s… It’s nothing, really…”
He had obviously hated this woman before, but after getting praised, he felt…
The corner of Shi Sui’s mouth turned up slightly as he cooperated. “Mhmm. Ah Nai is a quick learner and has strong hands-on skills.”
The young boy was overjoyed. If he had a tail, it would probably be wagging fiercely.
Xiang Yi looked toward Yan Zhenhua and deftly smiled. “Director Yan, shouldn’t you praise Yan Nai?”
Yan Zhenhua waved his hands. “Aiyah, how could I say these things.”
He could praise actors, but to praise his son… That would be too embarrassing.
“I think children should be praised more.” Xiang Yi picked up another axe and began to chop wood without delay. “When I was a kid, I really liked it when the elders praised me. Whenever they did, I felt more motivated.”
Her words resonated with many people.
—[That’s me, the more the teacher praises me, the more motivated I get]
—[I really like flattering and boosting my sisters, and I really like when they find creative ways to lie to me too hahahahaha]
—[Yi mei* is so diligent. She is nimble, but she is sassy and gentle as well. QQQQ I’ve been converted!]
Yan Nai did not harbor any hope for Yan Zhenhua. He knew that his father loved him, but his expression was restrained.
Hence, it didn’t matter that much to him. He did not need his father’s validation.
Yan Zhenhua cleared his throat. “Uh, Uhm… It’s pretty good, keep going.”
Yan Nai jerked his head up, staring at his father in disbelief.
Yan Zhenhua rubbed his belly and walked away, feeling embarrassed after he said those words. “I’m gonna go check on the chickens. I can’t cut firewood, but I can kill chickens!”
* Yi mei means little sister Xiang Yi; probably an endearing name coined by fans
