Chapter 103 – Was their marriage an old wolf eating tender grass or two minors playing house…? (2)
The little boy felt bad about accepting her kind intentions and said, “I don’t need half. That’s too much. I just need this much.”
He hesitantly picked out six pieces of small ginger and two more herbs, then he said he wouldn’t take anymore.
Ruan Qiuqiu sighed. Little Yu was young and didn’t know what items were good. She couldn’t take advantage of him. Just as she was about to speak, Little Yu said, “Big sister Qiuqiu, if you think you’re taking advantage of me, can you me a little bit more of…”
Ruan Qiuqiu: “What?”
Little Mo Yu bit his lip. “That… The treasure in your husband’s cave…”
Ruan Qiuqiu froze in surprise for a moment before realizing he meant the water with healing effects.
She laughed in spite of herself. “Of course.”
Since Little Yu had said this, Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t need to insist on giving him more. After all, Mr. Gray Wolf had a greater need for herbs and spiritual energy stones.
However, thinking of how Mo Mao was a half-demon, she gave one of the spiritual energy stones to Little Yu. “This thing is very good for your older brother, but big sister’s husband needs this more than him. Can I take the remaining three pieces?”
Mo Yu nodded. “I didn’t do anything and I drank a lot of the treasure water yesterday. One piece is enough.”
Ruan Qiuqiu’s expression softened. She also gave Mo Yu the smaller fish. He didn’t refuse and wrapped everything up in the old animal skin he had brought.
When they were leaving the hole in the tree, Ruan Qiuqiu had an uneasy feeling. After she and Little Yu had walked ten minutes and was about to part ways, that feeling grew even stronger.
It was as if some troublesome thing had come to look for Mr. Gray Wolf and her.
Was it something dangerous or was it Lu Ziran and Rou Yuerao?
Thinking of these possibilities, Ruan Qiuqiu halted.
Little Yu was straining to carry the fish and herbs. He turned around, bowed at her, and said, “Big sister Qiuqiu, I’ll head home from here. Thank you for today. The next time the snow stops, come visit us. Little Bohe likes you a lot.”
Ruan Qiuqiu felt increasingly uneasy. She forced herself to smile and did her best to look as if there was nothing wrong. She waved at the little boy. “Okay, bye Little Yu.”
After watching Mo Yu walk away and after he had gotten a certain distance from her, Ruan Qiuqiu hesitated before turning around and running back. She climbed up into the hidden hole in the tree, went into the passageway, and hid most of the valuable things in the backpack. She only left half a piece of ginger, a few small pieces of ginseng, and half a blood-clotting plant.
She couldn’t break the spiritual energy stone into smaller pieces, so she held one in her hand and absorbed the spiritual energy until she had fully recovered the spiritual energy in her dantian. She hesitated but decided against taking the fish with her. She picked up the spear, blocked the hole in the tree again, and jogged back towards the vicinity of the cave.
Her decision had been correct. Just as she was about to reach the cave, Ruan Qiuqiu saw Lu Ziran walking over here from the opposite direction in an aggressive manner
His face was livid and angry. From a distance, he started shouting, “Ruan Qiuqiu! Ruan Qiuqiu, come out!”
His voice was angry and bitter as if his wife had cheated on him. He acted as if Ruan Qiuqiu had wronged him somehow.
“… F*ck.” Ruan Qiuqiu couldn’t help cursing. Why did this scumbag lion come here?
Was it because Rou Yuerao wouldn’t let off her “rival in love” and told Lu Ziran to come here to cause her trouble? Although Rou Yuerao was a bit of a white lotus, she didn’t think she was the type that would go as far as to kill someone.
So then it had to be Lu Ziran that came here of his own volition? Or, could this be a conspiracy by the Fire Wolf Tribe?
Ruan Qiuqiu wasn’t in a hurry to come out. She hid behind a huge tree that was over 20 meters away from the cave and waited there to see what Lu Ziran would do next.
