Chapter 122 – He was a very normal wolf without any peculiar hobbies (1)
Seeing the familiar figure in the curtain of rain, Ruan Qiuqiu abruptly widened her eyes. Tears welled up, blurring her vision.
She could only vaguely make out the giant figure in the heavy rain. Hail and cold rain hit Mr. Gray Wolf’s drenched fur. He looked like a wolf that had fallen into a pot of soup. So pitiful.
He was even taller than when they had first met. The rain and hail smashed down on the firewood on his back and continued falling down along the edges.
Although he looked wretched, he was still alive.
Ruan Qiuqiu had overdrafted on her physical strength and her legs and feet were also numb, but her originally silent heart jumped up a bit.
Ignoring that her clothes were dirty, she vigorously wiped her eyes. Not caring about the horrible weather and the pins and needle sensation from her legs as she got up, she rushed out of the cave and towards him.
Once again, Ruan Qiuqiu had woken up earlier than he anticipated. His little scheme and plan had fizzled out to nothing.
He swept his demon conscious over her and saw the dirt on her body and that her hair had gotten messy from the rain. Almost instantly, he was sure of one thing – his little wife had gone out looking for him again.
He had gotten chilled from being hit by hail, and now his blood was heating up. That warmth swelled up and flowed through his damaged meridians and to his wildly beating heart.
Before he could calm down and respond to her, Ruan Qiuqiu had already reached him and he felt a soft, warm touch on his right front paw.
With his dwindling demon consciousness, Yuan Jue saw his little teary-eyed wife, who he always thought about, was wrinkling her nose and hugging his front right paw.
When he realized what was happening, he was dumbstruck.
Why… Why was she… Why was she hugging him?!
He felt as if the originally soft and warm feeling suddenly changed for the worse. It now felt numb, itchy, and hot. That strange limp and numb feeling spread to his heart. It felt as if someone was scratching his heart.
His body stretched taut and his giant, furry ears instinctively shook, flinging down rain water. But other than that, he didn’t move at all. He was terrified that he would accidentally hurt Ruan Qiuqiu with his giant body.
Enduring the slight pain that came from the hail and rain and his body’s rising temperature, he stood there, allowing her to hug his front paw.
“Stupid wolf…” Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t know what was wrong with her. By the time she returned to senses, she was already next to him. She felt very ashamed that she was hugging his giant front paw.
Wet wolf fur didn’t feel nice to touch, especially on her face. It was painful to be jabbed by it, and the water on the fur made her already wet clothes even wetter.
The tip of her nose was full of the smell of rain and blood. That smell was mixed with a familiar scent of wood. Ruan Qiuqiu quickly understood what the wolf had gone off to do.
There wasn’t enough firewood at home. If she was frugal with it, it would only last them four or five days. She had been planning making do with gathering ordinary wood from nearby, and then looking for the special firewood later. She had also planned on modifying the spear so that it was easier to cut wood with it.
And now, there was no need.
Ruan Qiuqiu’s eyes felt sour, but there was no way for her to feel angry at all. When she had accidentally connected with him before, she had felt his pain that was so bad that she almost couldn’t breath. Even if Mr. Gray Wolf had once been a powerful level 5 warrior, it didn’t mean that he wouldn’t feel pain when he was injured.
Ruan Qiuqiu pushed down her sympathy and let go of his front paw. She knew that Mr. Gray Wolf’s condition and health was very bad. She had hugged his paw because she had temporarily been unable to hold back her emotions. She had thought he wouldn’t be able to come back.
She was cold all over and her lips were trembling. She couldn’t say a word.
Ruan Qiuqiu took a few quick steps to the side so that she wasn’t blocking his way to the cave. She wanted him to go inside.
Before the hail and rain had a chance to fall on Ruan Qiuqiu past a few seconds, light and shadow passed over her eyes and she felt a moist gust by her ears.
She looked up and saw a giant wolf paw over her head. The paw was slightly flexed and the claws coming out of it were very long, but it blocked all of the rain and hail for her.
Ruan Qiuqiu: “…”
