"Mom" shouted in a young voice, a child who seemed seven or eight years old clenched his hand into a fist and jumped in excitement.

"What's the matter, sweetie?" The woman walked up to the child with traces of flour on her hands, she came in a hurry without time to wash it off.

The child opened his mouth and pointed to the hollow gum on the left, "Mom, my tooth has fallen out. I am going to become an adult! "

The woman smiled and gently stroked the child’s head. "Remember to put the tooth under the pillow, the tooth fairy will come and take your tooth."

The child's eyes became bright in an instant, "What will the tooth fairy give me?"

"I'm not sure, but it must be a toy." The woman said lispingly.

"Well, I hope I can get a whole box of toys like you, mom."

Hearing these words, the woman smiled in a wide range, revealing hollow gums without teeth.

Not a single tooth was seen.
