Chapter 108 – If anyone was going to mention forcing, then it was obviously her forcing Mr. Gray Wolf this entire time (2)
“You’re willing?!” Lu Ziran raised his voice. The anger that had dissipated rushed up again.
Even when Ruan Qiuqiu had been in her “fool” state in the past, she absolutely wouldn’t allow him to get too close to her. He hadn’t even touched her hand. But now, she was telling him that she willingly mated with that gray wolf?
Who was she kidding?
“If there’s nothing else, I’m going in. My husband is still waiting for me.” Lu Ziran’s expression was ugly, but Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t want to say another word to him. “Excuse me.”
Willing. My husband is still waiting for me.
Those simple short words helped Yuan Jue, who had been enduring pain and was despicably eavesdropping in a corner, regained a bit of strength.
He didn’t know what was up with himself. The corners of his lips suddenly curved up, and his large tail wagged a bit. A smile that couldn’t be hidden snuck out of his eyes that had been indifferent for so long. Just like that, those long, narrow eyes suddenly lit up like two gloomy stars in the abyss.
He knew it. The feeling that Ruan Qiuqiu had for him was unusual too. She had even hinted at him last time to do something to her. As he thought about how Ruan Qiuqiu had said she was going to take a bath, Yuan Jue’s cheeks gradually became hot.
He was a gray wolf that loved cleanliness. Even in winter, he would often change into his wolf form and roll around the snow to clean his fur. He was much better than that lion that smelled bad even from a distance.
It was just that he had gone out hunting today, and there was the smell of blood on his body. He hadn’t had time to wash yet…
Although his thoughts had drifted far away, Yuan Jue didn’t forget about the annoying scumbag lion that wouldn’t stop talking.
He didn’t want to use the fiend energy. He used the little remaining demon energy he had to support him in walking. He turned around and wanted to come out from behind the giant tree, and then beat up this lion.
However, before he had time to take a step forward, Lu Ziran’s voice traveled to him from a distance.
“Ruan Qiuqiu, look at yourself. Do you think you’re living well? You’re not doing well at all.”
It was as if a basin of cold water had been poured over his heart, extinguishing all of his happiness and even the stars in his eyes dimmed.
And yet, Lu Ziran continued to say, “There’s frostbite all over your hands and feet. You lost so much weight that there’s almost no flesh on your face. You have injuries all over. The animal skin you’re wearing right now is still the one you got last winter in Wind Lion Tribe, right?
“Although your cave wasn’t in a good location before, it wouldn’t be that much worse than anyone else. You wouldn’t be in such a dire state. You don’t even have an animal skin curtain. Honestly, I was surprised to see that you’re still alive. Even if that crippled wolf didn’t force you, he’s already a cripple. What kind of life can he give you? You have a pretty good appearance and very pretty long hair, but now you don’t even have a single accessory.”
Lu Ziran’s words were like countless sharp knives that stabbed Yuan Jue’s chest. Lu Ziran was right. As a crippled wolf demon, what kind of life could he give her?
A cold cave, only having rare opportunities to eat tender bison, and not being able to wear thick animal skin because he couldn’t hunt down those types of animals?
There was a dull pain in his chest. The injuries he had gotten from not being careful enough and getting kicked by the bison herd hurt even more.
Realizing that this was a warning sign of a coughing fit, Yuan Jue somewhat helplessly covered his mouth with his right hand. There was an unbearable itchy feeling in his throat. Blood flowed down through the gaps between his well-defined fingers.
He instinctively lifted his left hand to wipe the blood. In that moment when his heart throbbed with pain, he forgot that he was holding a wildflower he had accidentally found growing in a crack. That flower wasn’t remarkable or big. Its leaves somewhat spread out, and it was buried by the snow in the crack.
An hour ago, he had carefully brushed off the snow covering the crack and picked the half opened light blue flower. This flower was suitable for her to put in her hair. He knew that although she didn’t say anything, she liked little things like this.
He had wanted to give this flower to her. But now, because of his carelessness, that light blue flower was splashed with his blood.
He had dirtied it.
Translator Ramblings: I hope that when Yuan Jue sees the herbs, fish, and spiritual energy stone that Ruan Qiuqiu got, he’ll see that she’s capable of supporting herself and won’t feel such pressure. He doesn’t have to be so hard on himself. Even though she knows that her quality of life would improve if she joined a tribe that’s friendly to humans, I don’t think she minds that her quality of life has fallen. She is someone that takes joy in her small successes and the little things in life, like patting furry tails =). At the beginning, she had no choice but to come here, but by now, she is choosing to stay with him.
