Chapter 138 – Senior, my wife heard that you got married and told me to bring over a present (1)
The raptor’s light brown eyes turned and landed on Ruan Qiuqiu’s red ears and cheeks. Wth, why was this human covered in Yuan Jue’s scent? It couldn’t be… No way, right?
The raptor was dumbstruck. He blankly stood there. Other than his red feathers that were being constantly blown by the cold wind, his body was frozen stiff.
Ruan Qiuqiu saw that the red raptor had suddenly stopped moving. Worried, she took a few steps forward and asked, “Brother Raptor, are you okay?”
The cold wind drilled in through the gaps between the half-open door and blew over Ruan Qiuqiu, chilling her hands and feet. She shivered. When she was in the bedroom, she hadn’t noticed that the outside temperature had dropped so much.
Through his demon consciousness, Yuan Jue saw that she was slowly clutching the white wool closer to herself. His pitch-black eyebrows furrowed unhappily. Gripping the wooden stick in his left hand, he took half a step forward.
There was a quick movement, and Ruan Qiuqiu’s line of sight was blocked. She couldn’t see the raptor anymore. The only thing that she could see was that the fur on Yuan Jue’s motley animal skin robe was moving from the wind.
Yuan Jue pursed his lips. His long black hair was slightly dampened as the wind blew in the rain. His voice was still very cold, but there was an unobtrusive trace of being emotionally moved. “Tian Xiu, why are you here?”
So this raptor’s name was Tian Xiu?
Ruan Qiuqiu wanted to laugh, but she felt that the raptor, who had been waiting outside in the rain for a long time, was pitiful, so she resisted that impulse.
The raptor returned to his senses after hearing Yuan Jue’s voice. The giant beak opened and closed, making sounds that Ruan Qiuqiu couldn’t understand.
“Kee-eeeee-arr”（Senior, my wife heard that you got married and told me to bring over a gift.)
Tian Xiu deliberated over what language to use and settled on using demon language.
Negative feelings like guilt and regret were a hindrance when it came to cultivating. He didn’t want to have those feelings in the future, that was part of the reason why he had come here to repay his debt of gratitude. However, it was also true that his wife had asked him to bring a gift over to congratulate Yuan Jue on his marriage. Tian Xiu felt that the latter reason would be more acceptable to the wolf.
He guessed correctly.
After Yuan Jue heard that Tian Xiu had brought a gift to congratulate him for getting married, his grim expression softened. “Really? Thank you.”
Although Ruan Qiuqiu couldn’t understand what the raptor said, it was obvious that Yuan Jue wasn’t annoyed by it. This was her first time hearing Yuan Jue speaking in that tone. Perhaps, he and the raptor were friends?
Coming here under such circumstances, this raptor was truly a good person.
Ruan Qiuqiu smiled. She was about to ask the raptor to come inside to hide from the rain and warm up for a bit, but then she remembered the fiend energy on the wolf and gave up on that idea.
However, it was rare for someone to visit Yuan Jue. They couldn’t just send him away without inviting him to sit for a while.
Ruan Qiuqiu deliberated her tone and said to Yuan Jue, “Let’s have the guest come in and hide from the rain. You guys can stay by the door. I’ll bring hot water over.”
Yuan Jue gripped the wooden stick. He paused and pursed his pale lips. His expression was somewhat strange.
Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t wait to hear his response. She turned around to go to the bedroom to get water.
As soon as she did that, Yuan Jue unenthusiastically said, “We don’t have any bowls for him to drink out of.”
Ruan Qiuqiu: “…” They only had two wooden bowls. One was hers, and the other one was Yuan Jue’s. The latter one was made later. They shared a wooden bowl at first.
Was he worried that the raptor would mind using their bowls? She was surprised that Yuan Jue was so thoughtful of other people.
Ruan Qiuqiu smiled. “It’s okay. I made new wooden cups. He can use the one we haven’t used yet.”
The wolf’s expression became even more interesting. He had secretly used the wooden cup meant for Ruan Qiuqiu. She just didn’t know it.
Not having any extra bowls was just an excuse. The real reason was that the terribly possessive and paranoid wolf didn’t want another demon to drink water poured by his wife.
