Chapter 15 – For the very first time, the Big Bad Wolf felt that losing his sight was such a bad thing (1)
As Ruan Qiuqiu slowly half-pulled and half-supported the Mr. Gray Wolf into his solitary cave, the not-so-pleasant bloody smell was right in her face. Ruan Qiuqiu furrowed her brow. Enduring the smell of rot that creeped into her nose, she slowly gasped for breath.
Supporting Mr. Big Bad Wolf, who was slumped over and still taller than her, she tried her best to walk into the cave as fast as possible.
His injuries were very serious. He couldn’t continue staying outside in the ice and snow. She had to quickly get him to bed so that he could lie down, then she could go boil water and use it to clean his injuries.
Ruan Qiuqiu followed the light shining into the cave and stumbled with supporting his weight as she looked around for a bed.
Where was his stone bed?
The cave got darker as they went further inside. After turning a corner, Ruan Qiuqiu finally saw a stone bed.
However, that large stone bed didn’t have any bedding on it. Lying on it was the same as lying on the ground.
However, Mr. Gray Wolf’s body was very dirty. She had to clean him up first. If she put him down on a piece of animal skin, the animal skin would get dirty too.
Ruan Qiuqiu bit her lip and thought through her options. No longer hesitating, she struggled to put the “unconscious” Mr. Big Bad Wolf on the stone bed.
During this movement, Ruan Qiuqiu’s fingertips, which hadn’t completely gone numb from the cold, accidentally touched Mr. Gray Wolf’s injured shoulder.
From her fingertips, she felt that his shoulder was about the same temperature as the cold snow on the ground outside and his wound had the grainy texture of frozen blood.
Ruan Qiuqiu froze in surprise for a moment. The surprise was followed by worry.
How could Mr. Gray Wolf’s injury have frozen over so quickly? They had only been outside for a short period.
Could it be that in the short time he had fallen unconscious to now, he had already…
Shocked, Ruan Qiuqiu checked with a shaking hand if there was breath flowing under the tip of Mr. Big Bad Wolf’s nose. When she felt his faint breath, she slightly relaxed.
“Thank god…” Ruan Qiuqiu exhaled in relief. With a slightly bitter voice, she poked fun of herself and joked, “Thank god he’s still alive. Otherwise, if he dies in his human form, I won’t be able to make wolf jerky…”
Mr. Big Bad Wolf, who had been working hard to use the last bit of his demon energy to freeze his open wound: “…”
Mr. Big Bad Wolf: “???”
What was wrong with this human? She had already found out that he was seriously injured and saw his broken body. Not only had she not run away in terror, she had boldly entered his territory.
Just when he was about to flatter himself into thinking that she was different from other humans, he found out that she wanted to make him into wolf jerky…
Probably because he was too heavily injured, Yuan Jue, who was about to faint for real now, couldn’t tell if Ruan Qiuqiu was joking or not.
He just felt that his tangled up heart felt even worse.
He felt that he should be feeling regret. But, an inexplicable sorrow and grievance drowned out that regret.
Because of those inexplicable feelings, he didn’t even question the fundamental issue of why Ruan Qiuqiu would want to eat a demon. The wolf sunk into depression.
Sure enough, he had been mistaken when he thought she was blushing. He had been deluding himself. He was the one with too many presumptuous notions.
