Chapter 1727: Sit Tight
The stage turned dark gradually, and a beam of light suddenly shone onto the center of the stage. Amy, who was wearing a little white dress and a rabbit-eared hat, appeared in front of everyone.
The audience’s eyes lit up. What an adorable little girl. She looked so exquisite, just like an angel. Although it wasn’t their first time seeing her, they still wished to go up to squeeze her adorable cheeks.
Mag was also looking at Amy with a smile. He was pleased with the confidence that the little one displayed. She was no longer the pitiful, inferior, and timid little girl that he’d first met. She could already arrange her own show, and signed up to perform it in front of thousands of people.
Regarding the rabbit dance, Mag could, in fact, guess from Amy’s getup. However, in order to let Amy preserve the sense of mystery, he pretended not to know anything the whole time.
Right then, a rhythmic and happy music sounded.
Amy began to dance along with the music like a cute bunny hopping on the stage. She stepped on every beat accurately, and the ears went up and down along with the music.
Her smile was relaxed and confident. Only her gaze would occasionally sweep over to Mag, making sure that he was watching seriously.
“Aaaah. So cute!”
The enchanting music together with Amy’s adorable dance had set the hall on fire. The children were cheering, while the parents smiled dotingly.
“I’ve died again…” Daphne slumped over the chair again.
“Although this dance is a little weird, I have to admit that… it’s rather cute,” Ignatsu said seriously.
“Little Amy is so awesome.” Luna was also looking at Amy with a smile. She had witnessed this little one’s change during this time, and her gaze couldn’t help but land on Mag. During this time, Mr. Mag had done a father’s responsibility. Perhaps she should say that he was far more responsible than many other fathers.
The short four minutes brought extreme joy to everyone.
The music stopped, and Amy bowed to the audience.
Applause resounded throughout the hall, and the cheers were so loud that they almost ripped the roof off.
Is that applause for me? Amy looked at the audience with surprise. After a moment of thought, she bowed once to each side of the stage before skipping off the stage, and ran towards Mag. She wanted to ask her father if she had danced well.
That beam of light continued to follow her until she leaped into Mag’s embrace.
Mag picked up Amy with a smile, and said, “You did a marvelous job, Little Amy.”
“Really?” Amy stared at Mag seriously.
Mag, too, nodded his head, and seriously replied, “Of course, everyone’s applause is the best proof.”
“Thank you, Father.” Amy hugged Mag’s neck, and gave him a kiss on his cheeks.
“Why are you thanking me?” Mag asked with a smile.
“I only dared to go on stage to perform for everyone because you’re here,” Amy replied without any hesitation. Then, she got close to Mag’s ear. “If only Mother was here too. But it’s fine. I can dance for her alone when I go back.”
“What a pair of father and daughter who make people envious.”
The audience watched this scene with a smile until the beam of light disappeared and returned to the stage. The little emcee began to announce the next program.
Nobody noticed that a white figure had appeared on the hall’s eaves for a while before disappearing again.
The textile factory in the northern part of the city.
Irina said to Ashley, “Settle this batch of elves. Their injuries are already healed, but they have suffered badly in that cellar, so we’ve got to counsel them.”
“Yes, my princess.” Ashley nodded. She looked at Irina’s blood-stained shirt, and worriedly asked, “Are you injured, Your Highness?”
“It’s not my blood.” Irina waved her sleeve, and the bloodstain at the corner of her skirt disappeared. With a cold expression, she said, “There are still some unrepentant fellows in the demon race. Get someone to copy this letter, and send it to every demon tribe. If they’re still trying to imprison the elves or help the Wind Forest oppress the elves, they will be deemed the Night Elves’ enemies, and I will make them pay a 100-fold price for it.”
Ashley received the letter with both hands with a solemn expression, and replied, “Yes.”
“The factory’s got to keep up with its production, but we cannot slack on the elves’ cultivation, either. We Night Elves need to have the ability to protect ourselves in order to survive on the Norland Continent. We cannot rely on Chaos City for protection.” Irina touched her ring, and a huge pile of treasures and gemstones appeared on the floor. “We can only protect ourselves when we are powerful.”
“Yes.” Ashley nodded gravely.
“I’m tired. I’ll make a move first,” Irina said. A golden beam flashed under her feet, and she disappeared.
Ashley summoned a few elves, and they began to sort the resources that Irina had left behind.
The party only ended at 9pm. The performances were appraised, and awards were given. Amy’s rabbit dance got the most popular performance award, which was well-deserved.
“Goodbye, Daphne and Ignatsu.” Amy waved to her friends on the back of the bicycle before urgently saying to Mag, “Ride faster, Father. Let’s hurry home!”
“Why is Little Amy in such a hurry?” Mag smilingly asked while he stepped on the bicycle.
“Because I want to go back to dance the rabbit dance for Mother. She might be asleep if we’re late,” Amy replied matter-of-factly.
“Alright, sit tight then.” Mag accelerated the bicycle, and overtook a horse-drawn carriage. They reached Mamy Restaurant within 10 minutes.
“The lights are still on!” Amy hopped off the bicycle as she looked at the lit restaurant, and exclaimed, “Mother must be back!”
Indeed, before Mag could open the door, the restaurant’s door was opened from inside, and Irina was looking at them smilingly at the entrance.
“Mother!” Amy leaped into Irina’s arms right away, but she soon began to show off the medals and certificates. “Mother, look. This is my contribution award’s medal, and this is the most popular award certificate that I received for my dance. Father said I got the loudest applause and cheers, so they gave it to me.”
“Mm-hmm, Little Amy is the best.” Irina was full of gentle smiles.
“I wanted to record the performance with the photostone at first, but Amy said she wanted to dance for you personally.” Mag carried the bicycle in, and then closed the door.
Amy nodded, and said, “Yes. I want to dance for Mother alone.”
“Alright, then Little Amy will dance for me.” Irina nodded before she tilted her head to look at Mag, and said in a coquettish tone, “I want to eat grilled fish. I’m hungry.”
Mag looked at Irina, who was usually cold and elegant, but was now looking at him coyly, in a daze. He only regained his wits after a while and nodded. “Alright. What does Little Amy want to eat? You did very well today, so Father will make whatever you want to eat.”
Amy pondered seriously for a while before replying, “Then… I want to have roast mutton kebab and strawberry ice cream.”
“Alright. Please wait for a while.” Mag carried a table away for Amy before going into the kitchen.
