TL: Moonlit

The hazelnut necklace that Shu Shuishui gave to Gu Langu is not just a simple decoration.
The high-quality spirit stone itself possesses a concentrated and powerful spiritual energy.
Shu Shuishui doesn’t waste it and decides to engrave a formation on it.
Of course, it’s not visible on the surface, perhaps only faint lines can be seen under sunlight, but it would be mistaken for mere ornamentation.

As for the purpose of the formation, Shu Shuishui can proudly tell others that it is a sensing formation.
If Gu Langu, who wears the necklace, encounters a life-threatening situation, no matter where it happens, Shu Shuishui can sense it and quickly rush to the scene to save Gu Langu.

Shu Shuishui felt that it was his responsibility of being a master.
However, before Shu Shuishui had a chance to tell Gu Langu, he couldn’t resist the temptation of the bed and fell asleep.

Just before collapsing onto the small bed, Shu Shuishui made an effort to widen his eyes and hid the necklace under Gu Langu’s pillow.
The hazelnut necklace would replace Shu Shuishui in bidding Gu Langu goodnight.
With closed eyes, Shu Shuishui returned to the small bed, plopped down, and quickly entered dreamland.

The next morning, the disturbing morning light not only awakened all things but also stubbornly poured through the window, casting light on the bedside table and the small bed.
In his slumber, the little dormouse lifted his paw and covered his eyes, as if this would keep the sunlight at bay and undisturbed.

After a moment, the little dormouse realized that this method wasn’t very effective, so he skillfully pulled the small blanket up, covering himself and leaving only his two little ears poking out.

On the small bed, already a fluffy round ball, now appeared even more plump.
Underneath the grass-green small blanket, there was a bulge that tempted one to reach out and give it a poke to test its feel.

Gu Langu, who had already woken up and prepared to greet Shu Shuishui at the first opportunity, opened his mouth toward the small bundle on the bed.

The little bundle on the bed remained oblivious, completely unaware that someone was ready to say good morning to him.
It was only an hour later, when Yu Jin came upstairs knocking on the door, announcing that it was time for Shu Shuishui and Gu Langu to have breakfast, that the little bundle on the bed showed some movement.

The small blanket was slowly pulled down, revealing Shu Shuishui’s two little ears and forehead, followed by his tightly closed eyes.
It took a while for the eyes to open a narrow slit.

In the blurry vision, Gu Langu seemed to have just awakened as well and gently said, “Good morning, Shuishui.”

Shu Shuishui yawned and his vision became even blurrier.
“Good morning, Gu Gu.”

With Yu Jin’s urging, the human and dormouse duo finally reluctantly left the bed.
Shu Shuishui, in a plump bundle, climbed down from the small bed and then squinted his eyes to neatly fold the small blanket.
Only then did he hop down with a thud and head toward the bathroom to freshen up.

Climbing onto the washstand, Gu Langu had already poured water into Shu Shuishui’s usual bottle cap.
Shu Shuishui extended his paw and touched it.
The water temperature was just right, neither cold nor hot.
The little dormouse’s ears twitched, and with his eyes half-closed, he washed his face.

After washing his face, Shu Shuishui closed his eyes as usual, waiting for the fur on his face to dry.
However, he soon felt a soft touch, and out of instinct, he opened his eyes and found a particularly small handkerchief in front of him, perfectly suitable for his use.
In addition to the handkerchief, there was also a set of very small dental tools, clearly prepared for him.

Gu Langu dragged the toothbrush holder and the dental tools with his finger.
“I changed these during our previous search.
See if they fit.” Gu Langu had been wanting to find these items for a long time, especially every time he saw the little dormouse washing his face and waiting with closed eyes for a long time to dry his face.

Shu Shuishui took the small towel and dental tools, extending his paw and giving the towel a poke.
He applied a bit too much force, as if he wanted to break the towel with his sharp claws, but it seemed that the towel was of good quality and remained intact beneath Shu Shuishui’s sharp claws.

“To be honest, I think I don’t need the towel.
This way, I can moisturize my face, and the next day, my makeup won’t peel off, won’t cake, won’t crease…” Shu Shuishui tried hard to search for the benefits of not using a towel in his little brain, hoping to gain a few more minutes of drying his face.
Shu Shuishui felt that he could dry his face perfectly well with his own abilities, so why use a towel? Others wanted to dry their faces, but they didn’t even have fur.

Gu Langu: …Why does it feel like the little mouse is talking nonsense with a straight face?

Seeing that Gu Langu seemed skeptical, Shu Shuishui, in order to increase his credibility, finally found a bag of cotton pads from the corners of his spiritual storage.
The size was just right for use as a towel.
“Look, I have a bag of towels.
If I wanted to use them, I would have used them long ago.
So what I said is true.”

It is evident that the statement about not having peeling or cakey makeup that Shu Shuishui made was learned from somewhere else.
It turns out that this internet-illiterate dormouse accidentally clicked on a makeup video while searching for seaweed dance videos.
He immediately took notice of a bag of cotton pads in the video.
At that time, Shu Shuishui had just woken up from hibernation and thought of washing his face properly to bid farewell to the hibernation ritual.
So he patiently waited until the cotton pads that Shu Bao ordered arrived before washing his face.
He diligently used the cotton pads to pat dry his cheeks.

But now, after several days of maintaining a regular sleep schedule of going to bed early and waking up early, Shu Shuishui cherished every minute of sleep even more and tried to maximize the benefits for himself.

Gu Langu noticed that the bag of “small towels” that Shu Shuishui brought out was made of pure cotton and actually contained cotton.
The corners of his lips involuntarily curved downward, and he reached out to take back the little towel he had given.

Shu Shuishui’s ears twitched, and he turned his little body around to neatly fold the towel.
“But this towel is also cute.
Can I put it away even if I don’t use it to wipe my face?”

“Of course,” Gu Langu immediately responded.

Shu Shuishui (^-^) stored the towel in his spiritual storage, placing it next to the high-grade spiritual stone.

With the face-wiping issue resolved, Shu Shuishui’s sleepiness dissipated.
The little dormouse became interested in examining the new dental tools he had just received: a small beige toothbrush holder, a grass-green toothbrush, and a tube of toothpaste.

Gu Langu explained, “There is no green toothbrush holder, only this color.
However, the toothpaste is green and has a seaweed flavor.”

Shu Shuishui tilted his little head.
Indeed, Gu Langu really liked the color green.
But shouldn’t toothpaste be mint-flavored? What does seaweed-flavored toothpaste taste like?

Curiously, Shu Shuishui carried the toothbrush holder to the faucet to get some water.
However, due to the small size of the cup, the water splashed and nearly gave Shu Shuishui an unintended shower.
Fortunately, Gu Langu’s hand reached out at a critical moment and blocked the water splashes.
Shu Shuishui pointed to the faucet.
“We need to conserve water.
You go ahead and wash first.
When you’re done, close the faucet.
The last two drops that fall will be enough for me.”

Gu Langu: “…”

In the end, Shu Shuishui didn’t wait for the faucet to drip because he discovered that the devices in this world were quite water-efficient.
Once closed, the faucet didn’t drip at all.
So, in the end, Shu Shuishui used his own little cup to scoop some water from Gu Langu’s large cup, allowing him to try the seaweed-flavored toothpaste.

Shu Shuishui diligently brushed each of his teeth, then smacked his lips, feeling the fresh seaweed flavor in his breath.
It wasn’t bad at all.
The little dormouse happily shook his head, fluffing up the fur on his face to facilitate the evaporation of moisture.

After finishing their morning routine, Shu Shuishui tiptoed and placed his toothbrush cup next to Gu Langu’s cup.
He pointed at the cups with a slight surprise and said, “Gu Langu, look, our cups are the same, just different in size.
They look like couple cups, don’t they?”

A subtle panic flickered in Gu Langu’s eyes.
“Yes, when we exchanged them, I didn’t notice.”

Shu Shuishui remained oblivious.
“This proves that we have fate.” After saying that, he happily trotted out of the bathroom, heading downstairs to have breakfast.

During the meal, for some reason, Yu Jin felt that Gu Langu’s presence was particularly strong today, causing him to glance at him several times, but he couldn’t figure out what was wrong.

Could it be because he was still upset about Yu Jin roasting Shu Shuishui’s grasshoppers? Yu Jin’s heart pounded, and he couldn’t help but quicken his pace.
After finishing his meal, he was ready to leave.
But just as he was about to get up, Gu Langu shot him a sharp gaze.

Yu Jin instinctively sat back down, his gaze wandering around, and by chance, he noticed the crystal necklace around Gu Langu’s neck.
He immediately found a topic to discuss.
“Boss, that necklace of yours is nice, it complements your temperament.
Where did you get it?”

Gu Langu sat upright.
“It was a gift from Shu Shuishui.
I think it’s really nice too.”

Upon hearing this, Yu Jin immediately shifted his attention to Shu Shuishui, who was usually more approachable.
“Shu Shuishui, where did you get it? Do you have any more? Can you give me one too?”

Gu Langu looked at Yu Jin with indifference.
“Have you finished eating?”

Yu Jin reflexively replied, “Yes, I finished.”

Gu Langu coldly looked over.
“If you’ve finished eating, then why haven’t you left?”

Yu Jin: ??? Could it be that the sharp gaze just now was just his imagination? Yu Jin didn’t dare to doubt it naturally, fearing that the plate with Shu Shuishui and Gu Langu and the chair they sat on would remind them of Shu Shuishui’s grasshoppers incident.
He quickly made his escape.

Once outside, Yu Jin felt that something was off.
He had a strange sensation of being used and then discarded, but he couldn’t recall doing anything wrong.
At that moment, Yu Jin couldn’t possibly fathom that their boss, who was usually single-minded, had learned the art of subtly showing off.

Shu Shuishui, who hadn’t had a chance to answer, paused for a moment and continued nibbling on the purple tree cake he was holding.
After painstakingly finishing the cake without dropping any crumbs, Gu Langu immediately handed him another piece.
“Shuishui seems to really like the purple tree cake? Here, have mine too.”

Shu Shuishui: “…” immediately shook his little head frantically.
It didn’t taste good at all, and it didn’t even resemble purple sweet potatoes! “What kind of plant is this, really? I don’t find it tasty at all.”

Gu Langu retrieved information about the purple tree from his mind.
“The purple tree is a starchy and fibrous plant that can survive in many extreme environments.
It can be consumed as food, whether it is an annual or perennial plant.
It can reach a maximum diameter of one meter and a height of ten meters.
It provides a good sense of satiety and energy supply.
Currently, it is the main cultivable crop on the Cang Zhan Star.”

Shu Shuishui: “…” So, it’s basically just a tree! People in this world are actually eating trees, without any regard for environmental protection.
“Gu Gu, how many more days do we have before we set off? Can I bring a few flower pots during the migration process?”

“Of course, you can.” During the migration process, Gu Langu would have his own separate vehicle, and he never had the habit of carrying anything, so there was plenty of space in the car.

Shu Shuishui nodded contentedly and then trotted back to the second floor.
He took out his notebook, planning what he wanted to plant and also to purify the energy stones as soon as possible, so that when they arrived at their destination, he could directly…

Energy stones! Shu Shuishui jumped a little and suddenly remembered that he didn’t even have a single energy stone.
He felt very poor.

The poor dormouse spun in place for a few rounds, feeling burdened, and then left the room to find Gu Langu.
However, it seemed that Gu Langu had already gone out for something, but he bumped into Yu Jin first.
“Shuishui? Why do you look unhappy?”

Shu Shuishui perked up his little ears.
“I’m so poor, I’m so incredibly poor that I can’t even support a family.”

Yu Jin stumbled a bit.
If Shu Shuishui said he was poor, then who in this base could claim to be rich? And what does he mean by ‘supporting a family’? “Does Shuishui have a litter of cubs to take care of?”

Shu Shuishui glanced at Yu Jin.
“I only have Gu Langu to take care of, and your hands aren’t pretty, so I don’t want to take care of you.”

Yu Jin: ???
