Chapter 119 – Why did that wolf pick a flower? Was it for her? (1)
Ruan Qiuqiu, whose eyes were a bit red at the corners, heard Little Yu’s words and thought of her nominal husband. Her gaze softened, but her heart felt bitter.
She pointed at the small wooden container that Little Yu had stuffed into her arms. The container was covered with animal skin. Based on how heavy it was, she guessed there were many things inside. She asked the child, “What’s in here?”
“It’s soup that Grandpa made.” Mo Yu smiled and his eyes brightened. The gloomy air around him dispersed, revealing the liveliness belonging to his age. “Big Sister Qiuqiu, my older brother woke up.”
Ruan Qiuqiu widened her eyes in happy surprise. “That’s great, then he should be fine after properly eating medicine and recuperating.”
Mo Yu touched his head and grinned at her. “Big Sister Qiuqiu, thank you.”
“No need. I still have to thank you for bringing us fish soup.” Ruan Qiuqiu curved her lips.
Holding the things from Grandpa Mo’s family, she looked up at the gradually darkening sky. She hesitated before saying, “Little Yu, wait here for me.”
Ruan Qiuqiu ran back to the cave, placed the soft sheepskin and wooden container with fish soup inside on the stone table, went to the storage room, and chose a cut of bison meat that was small enough that Little Yu could carry it. After removing the small bit of remaining fiend energy in the meat with her spiritual energy, she brought it out.
“Here, my husband hunted a small bison. Take it back for your grandpa and the others to eat.” In a rare overbearing moment for Ruan Qiuqiu, she stuffed the bison meat into Little Yu’s arms. “It’s already been treated. There’s no curse on it. Alright, the weather isn’t good. You should hurry home soon.”
“Big Sister Qiuqiu…” Little Yu felt torn. He had come here to give something as a thank you for Ruan Qiuqiu’s generosity, but she gave him something in return…
“Alright, I have to go out to pick up my husband. Go on home.” Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t give Little Yu the chance to speak. Clutching the spear, she turned and left.
“…” Looking like a little adult, Mo Yu sighed. He took off the straw cape that he was wearing and offered it to her. “Little Bohe made this for me. I’ll be home before it starts snowing. Big Sister Qiuqiu, you can take this to use. You can adjust the size on it. Although Little Bohe’s handywork isn’t good, the straw cape can still block out some rain and snow.”
It was only now that Ruan Qiuqiu noticed that Little Mo Yu had been wearing an ugly straw cape. It was only big enough to cover his upper body.
She didn’t refuse his kind intentions. She accepted the straw cape that had been crudely woven together and draped it over herself.
After Mo Yu left, Ruan Qiuqiu scurried around the vicinity of the cave to investigate prints in the snow. Following the footprints, she arrived at a large tree.
The snowy ground was messy here. There were obvious traces that something heavy had been dragged through here. The blood drops on the snow were messed up and mixed into the snow, not easily seen.
She furrowed her brow. From her position behind the tree, she could see the entrance to the cave.
Was this the spot that the wolf had been hiding in when Lu Ziran came looking for her?
Thinking of that wolf’s physical condition, Ruan Qiuqiu felt angry and sad. The last time she checked, the fiend energy in his body hadn’t completely dissipated and his wounds were only a little bit better than when they first met. He should be at home recuperating and not out hunting.
Although he mysteriously had the ability to land a critical strike on the male lead, so what? That wouldn’t lighten his pain. She was sure that gray wolf Tianluo would pay a corresponding price for this.
Ruan Qiuqiu leaned over and brushed away the blood-stained snow. Sensing the dense fiend energy hovering over it, she felt increasing uneasy.
Last time, he had almost been buried under the snow and became a wolf popsicle after dealing with that fiend that was around level 3.
This time, he had dealt with the male lead, who had a heaven-defying halo. That wolf was unrivaled for his stubbornness, but was also awkward and proud. Most likely, he had been hurt to a certain degree and didn’t want her to see him when he was looking wretched. That’s probably why he had put her to sleep.
Ruan Qiuqiu bit her lip. Her finger touched a flower stem that had turned hard from being frozen.
A flower stem?
Furrowing her brow, Ruan Qiuqiu found a few scattered petals on the nearby snowy ground. Why did that wolf pick a flower? Was it for her?
Ruan Qiuqiu smiled and shook her head. She felt that the possibility of that was very high.
She carefully picked up the petals and put them in backpack’s side pocket, then she stood up and continued to jog around, looking for tracks.
The sky had gradually grown dark. After she had been tracking the footprints for over ten minutes, the tracks abruptly ended.
Pressing her lips tightly together, she looked at the flashes of lightning in the sky. After thinking it over, she decided to take a trip to the nearby passageway.
