CRA Chapter 29

To Yunbao Branch

The big bird was flying with his small cub. Xie Luan followed them with his eyes as they soared high above and after a while, he lowered his head and touched the back feathers of the two fluffy cubs in his arms.


Although their hearts were filled with longing and they were very envious, the cubs obediently stayed in Xie Luan’s arms and gazed up at the sky. When they felt their back feathers being touched, they chirped and turned their heads to look up at Xie Luan before snuggling into his shirt.

The fluffy kuwei cub with yellow feathers was called Rawei and the gray cotto cub was called Leeds. [1] Xie Luan silently stroked the two fluffy cubs for a while and then said, “Should I fly with you later?”

When he spoke this sentence, Xie Luan did not stop to think about how he, as a human being, would be able to fly with them as the Kuthi cub’s father had. He simply asked this first.

“Tiuh! Tiuh! Tiuh!”

As soon as the youth said this, the two fluffy cubs immediately raised their heads and chirped in excitement, they seemed very happy.

Lightly poking the two lively cubs’ soft chests and bellies, Xie Luan mentally noted down this matter and started contemplating on how to do this.

This was the interstellar era, certainly, there must exist some kind of equipment that could let him accomplish this and make him able to fly in the sky.

For example… maybe something similar to the equipment of Iron Man?

Xie Luan did not think too deeply about this for the time being.

Ultimately, some adults of the same race as the two cubs might come and apply for guardianship. After all, these two cubs were so good, so cute, so outstanding—

In the heart of Xie Luan, who had already attained the mentality of a parent, all the cubs in their club were good cubs who deserved being spoiled and pampered.

After listening to the two cubs’ response, Xie Luan felt his neck and cheek being rubbed by something fluffy.

Already accustomed to being rubbed by the nox cub on his shoulder, Xie Luan turned his head and took the initiative to return the gentle rub.

The nox started emitting a low hum as he got nuzzled by the youth and his pupils seemed to slightly tighten with satisfaction.

By the time the huge Phoenix-like creature and the little red cub had completed the parent-child activity and the cub and father came face to face once again, the fluffy cub showed almost no timidity when meeting the father’s usual stern face.

When the pair now approached Fuya and Xie Luan together, the little cub was even squatting on top of his father’s head, his small claws clutching the hair of similar color.

A stern, cold-faced man, with a small round fluffy cub on his head…. this scene, it really made one feel an absurd contrast…

However, for Fuya, seeing this scene only filled her with joy. That her husband and their cub got along so well, this truly was the best possible outcome.

Xie Luan was naturally also very happy to see that everything had turned out well and that the kuhti cub had two parents who loved him dearly.

“Our Peipei… I will have to ask that your club continue to care for him in the future.” When he said these carefully chosen words, the man’s stern face held a barely noticeable embarrassment.

Not long ago, he had used a tough unyielding attitude and the same questioning tone to ask his wife why she had sent their cub to an unfamous nursing club.

At that time, Tanner had believed in his heart that the conditions at the club had to be very poor and it would not be a good living environment for the cub. The same goes for the caretakers, at such a club, how could the caretakers possibly provide the care the cub needed?

However, he had been wrong, seeing the improvement of his cub for himself, Tanner could not deny this. They had made the cub able to fly. As for the caretakers, just looking at the intimate and caring attitude of the youth in front of them was enough.

He must have been very attentive.

The fact that he once disliked this nursing club called “Yunbao” was only known to his wife and even though she would not mention this, Tanner still felt a sense of embarrassment.

Xie Luan nodded at his words and tiptoed to retrieve the cub sitting on the man’s head.

The flying competition at Orte was over and the cub’s family matter had been resolved. Now was time for Xie Luan and the cubs to return to Gaia. To their club.


When leaving, the little red fluffy cub called out two times to his parents, but still obediently stayed put in Xie Luan’s arms.

Out of the two chirps, one was meant to him.

Thinking this, the stern man’s face unconsciously relaxed a bit.

While the butler accompanied the guests to the gate, Tanner faced his wife in the living room and her silence made him a little uneasy.

Without saying anything, she took in his whole appearance, starting from the bottom. When her eyes reached the top of his head, she abruptly raised a hand to cover her mouth and she made a snorting sound similar to that of suppressed laughter.

“…” Not understanding the origin of the laughter, Tanner held back from asking and instead went into the study. After closing the door behind him, he picked up the photo standing on the desk.

As soon as he saw his own reflection in the glass, Tanner understood why.

His hair that always was tidy and fixed with hair gel, was now in a complete mess and it could be described as a bird’s nest, literally.

It was probably from when he let the little cub sit on his head… No hair gel would be a match for the cub’s small claws as he moved around on top of his head.

In the past, Tanner’s first reaction would have been to lose face. [2]

But now, after having experienced the feeling of being close to his cub, Tanner did not feel any negative emotions when he discovered this.

The cub had been so happy when he sat on his head, and this had made him happy as well…

When it came down to it, which was more important, maintaining face or his own cub?

Having already put down his barriers once, Tanner suddenly felt that it was not very difficult to let them down a second or third time.

After leaving the Warren estate, Xie Luan took the four cubs and boarded the returning starship.

This time, he managed to book a place on the latest commercial starship model, and so, about half a day later, Xie Luan arrived at Gaia together with the nox cub and the three proud cubs wearing medals.

It was at this time that the “flying contest” tread on Xingyou reached its climax.

When some people were discussing how an unknown club had managed to make a kuhti cub who had never been able to learn how to fly, master it and also win first place in the competition. A message suddenly emerged in the thread from a staff member of the Ary branch which attracted the attention of many people.

The Ary branch was ranked tenth among all nursing clubs in the interstellar and it was undoubtedly on many parents’ list when they decided on a club for their cub.

The message had not been officially issued by the Ary branch per se, but it had been sent by one of the staff members’ private accounts.

“That kuhti cub stayed at our branch for more than half a year. The caretakers at our club gave spiritual guidance to the cub every day. Although it’s a pity that he did not fully grasp it before he left, I’m happy to see that the cub can now fly.”

Even though nothing was directly stated, just like as if it was only the person’s own emotions, they still specifically mentioned that the caretakers at their club had given spiritual guidance every day, and this, of course, made many people wonder.

After all, even though Ary branch, compared with the top three, still had a long way to go when it came to capital, background, and so on. There was one thing that made them able to compete with the high-ranking clubs—- They had an S- level caretaker.

The kuhti cub had been at the branch for over half a year and every day an S-level caretaker had used their spiritual power to guide the cub… when the cub later mastered flying, maybe it was actually because of Ary branch’s hard work?

This speculation was not groundless. Just thinking about an S- level caretaker’s excellent spiritual strength, it was quite reasonable to believe that the fact that the kuhti cub had later acquired his flying ability was because of the repeated guidance given by Ary branch’s caretaker.

In addition to Ary branch, this kuhti cub has been treated at several other clubs in the past as well. But even though some staff at these clubs had similar ideas, they could now only silently store these thoughts away in their heart.

Even though there was only a small hint in the other’s message, in the eyes of the other clubs, it was equal to claiming credit.

“It was obviously thanks to Ah Luan’s hard work and encouragement that the cub was willing to take the initiative to learn how to fly.” Seeing the comments on Xingyou which favored Ary branch, the staff at Yunbao branch immediately became dissatisfied.

Since it was not only the youth’s efforts but also because of the cub’s own hard work that he was able to learn how to fly, they did not feel it right to comment and let their club take all credit for this. But this didn’t mean that they were okay with watching others talk nonsense.

“The cub worked hard. Ah Luan often trained with him and the other two cubs also helped and flew with him every day. It is clearly because of this that the cub was slowly able to learn.” Xia Qi and the other staff members could not help curl their lips in disgust as they read the countless comments on Xingyou. They felt they were all complete rubbish—

The Vice President and investor of their club had said the reason the cub was not able to fly was psychological. Later, this had also turned out to be true. So what could spiritual guidance possibly have to do with it??

Through the live broadcast on the starnet, the staff members knew that all three of their club’s fluffy cubs had gotten good placements and received medals in the competition. Xia Qi had not rushed things and had thought that when they came back, they could take a photo of Xie Luan standing with the three cubs by the gate. They could then upload it onto the official account of their club.

She hadn’t expected that it would become such a hot topic on Xingyou…

Not being able to stand it, she had logged onto her own private Xingyou account and tried to clear things up.

But it had been helpless, the comments refreshed too quickly, and her rebuttal drowned in the massive stream of comments.

She was outnumbered. With so many people believing the same thing, it was hard to make a difference, and the new people who joined in were of course quickly persuaded by the masses.

However, as the public opinion got more and more unified, a thank-you letter from the kuhti cub’s parents suddenly surfaced.

The first paragraph in the letter read—

To Yunbao Branch.

A stone stirs thousands of waves. The hot topic which had gradually calmed down due to the convergence of the public opinion once again started to boil.


Translator’s note:

We finally got to know the kuwei and cotto cubs’ names! ٩( ‘ω’ )و

For the fun of it, since there are different ways to translate them, I will let you guys decide. (See footnote) You can comment which name you prefer and I will announce the results next week.

By the way, sorry for the late update, my internet was down so I couldn’t publish. But to make up for it, here is a super cute picture that I recently found of the trio:

 But to make up for it, here is a super cute picture for the novel that I found:

[1] – The kuwei cub’s name would better be translated as Ravi or Ravey, but the second character in his name is the same as the “wei” in “kuwei”, hence why I wrote “Rawei”. The cotto cub’s name can be translated as “Leeds” or “Lidz”. I leave it up to you readers to decide what the two fluffy cubs should be called. (^^)

[2] – To lose face basically means something humiliating happens which makes you appear weak and makes people respect or admire you less.

  1. I’ll go with the flow because I’m bad with the names … I’m glad that pei pei’s parents clarify the situation and do not let the shameless of other clubs steal the credit of the puppies and XT

    Thanks for the chapter! ???

  2. The picture is adorable ? and I’m cool with Leeds and Ravey (since it sounds nearer to Rawei).

    I’m so glad Tanner is turning over a new leaf here ?

    How dare those pretentious people claim Xie Tao’s credit! It would be nice if there’s a video of Xie Tao and Peipei training but well… pretty sure that would have pressured the cub more but thank god Peipei’s parent cane forward to clear up this topic.

  3. Too cute! XDD Can’t wait to see how Xie Tao learns to fly so that he can take Rawei and Leeds flying lol! Thanks for the chapter!

  4. This was such a fluff full chapter but ugh those other pretentious clubs… can’t wait for the face slapping

    I like the names Ravi and Lidz, they’re both cute! ?

    Thanks for the chapter!

  5. Thank you for the chapter, I always have a smile on my face when I see a new chapter released. Keep up the great work with the translation. Ah, I like Ravi and Lidz names 😀

  6. Thanks for the chapter! I like your translation of the cubs’ names. I’m sorry, but Lidz sounds like something that should be on the top of a Pringle’s can. Actually, there is a shop where I come from called Lidz that specializes in baseball caps…

  7. Thanks for the chapterrr uwu i wish i have one of those fluffy bird balls…. But my nose is sensitive T,T

  8. That pic is adora-fluff!
    I like the names ‘Lidz’ and ‘Ravi’. I don’t think the gender of the other cubs were specified but Lidz kinda sounds like a girl name and I’m all for that lineup! XD

  9. A stern, cold-faced man, with a small round fluffy cub on his head…. this scene, it really made one feel … like jumping him!

    That’s actually what I was kinda expecting, or y’know Fuya thought he was super attractive after that.

  10. I like all the names so no help on that front here. Thanks for the chapter omg so much fluff. I can’t believe (or rather don’t wish to) that they posted like that taking advantage of the situation. I wonder if they will post anything after the slap incoming from the parents letter 😀

  11. Thank you for the translation.
    And wasn’t the mc called ‘Xie Luan’ and not ‘Xie Tao’? wasn’t ‘Xie Tao’ the golden ball who brought XL (mc) to fluffiness? (this is first time I remember the names)

    1. The golden ball is called Xia Zuo. The reason the name changed is because I’m in the middle of changing the mc’s name from Xie Tao to Xie Luan (which is the correct name). Sorry for the confusion.
