Chapter 125 – Yuan, Jue, wolf demon (2)
Ruan Qiuqiu used her below average acting skills to lead him forward. “Ah, we’re here.”
Knowing that he couldn’t see, she endured the dizziness to stand in front of him and try her best to be his eyes.
Maintaining this strange state of affairs, the two people returned to the bedroom.
He was much taller than her. Anyone else would feel a sense of oppression if the wolf, who had lost his unparalleled beauty, was looming behind them, but Ruan Qiuqiu wasn’t the slightest bit scared.
If it wasn’t for Mr. Gray Wolf, she would have already died several times. Since that was the case, what was there to be scared of?
She was just feeling worried because she had said so much, but he had remained silent.
Back when she was living in the base, she had heard that many people with powerful abilities would be unable to come out of their depression after suffering a setback in the form of failing to advance to the next level or being injured by a mutant beast. A lot of those people would end up self-harming or going crazy.
Although she didn’t think gray wolf Tianluo had this problem, she hesitated and deliberated before turning around and looking. She was surprised to see that Mr. Gray Wolf’s narrow eyes were slightly red.
A faint line shone on his face. She could see his pale lips and how half of his face was blended into the darkness and the other half remained in the light.
It looked quite nefarious and also very weak as if he was going to leave and disappear at any moment.
Ruan Qiuqiu felt as if a needle had pierced her heart. Once she started feeling upset, the comforting words she wanted to say were replaced with words that came from her uncontrollable worry and fear.
Ruan Qiuqiu dug her nails into her palm. Opening her mouth, her eyes were evasive as she said, “Next time…” don’t suddenly leave, okay? I was so scared.
Before Ruan Qiuqiu could finish speaking, Yuan Jue, whose body was almost at the limit, decided to follow through with his original plan.
He could tell more or less that they were in the bedroom, but he didn’t know why her voice sounded upset. They had enough food, they weren’t lacking in firewood, and someone had given her a new animal skin. She should be feeling happy.
Sure enough, she was still scared by that hateful lion, right? That old lion better not appear in front of him again or else…
It didn’t occur to Yuan Jue that Ruan Qiuqiu would feel upset over him. The scheming wolf wickedly took a few steps forward with the support of the walking stick and tentatively stretched his hand towards her.
Ruan Qiuqiu had been feeling very upset, but when she saw Mr. Gray Wolf stretching his hand out in a direction away from her, she wanted to laugh. Should she cooperate with whatever play he wanted to perform?
Ruan Qiuqiu carefully moved closer. “What’s wrong?”
As he lightly felt the warm breath that came from her when she spoke, he felt that he was one step closer to having his wish fulfilled. With a cold look, he pretended to nonchalantly withdraw his hand. He had kept his head lowered this entire time because he didn’t want her to see his face. At this time, he tilted his head and his blind eyes happened to meet hers.
Ruan Qiuqiu slightly widened her eyes. For the first time, she got a clear look of him when he was clear-headed.
His long black hair was hanging down, and his deep, gray-blue eyes were flickering with a faint scarlet light. His magnetic and hoarse voice sounded cold, but there seemed to be a hard-to-detect anticipation when he said, “… Yuan, Jue.”
His gray-blue eyes that were staring at her seemed cold, but he was actually very nervous. Perhaps, it was because he was about to reach his physical limit and the pain was overwhelming, his speech was intermittent,”… Wolf demon.”
Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. She was dizzy and looking at Mr. Gray Wolf, who was swaying and seemed dizzy too. Despite that, he was trying to put on a very cold, domineering posture.
Ignoring that he had said he didn’t need help, she reached out and supported him by the arm before he toppled over.
Before fainting, the disappointed, but scary-looking wolf heard his wife replying, “Ruan, Qiuqiu, human.”
Translator Ramblings: I think its sweet that Ruan Qiuqiu plays along when she notices that Yuan Jue is trying to do something, even though she has no idea what he’s trying to do.
