Chapter 175 – If one day, the wolf couldn’t bear the pain from the fiend transformation period and ran away without telling her, she would 100% be angry (1)
Grandma Ruyi supported Ruan Qiuqiu with a willow branch. Seeing her pale face, she eased her tone, “Grandma knows of a place. It’s far from here and close to the Winter Bear Tribe.”
Grandma Ruyi smiled. “We can talk about this later. You overdrafted on your spiritual energy. Grandma will bring you back to her home. Once you rested and feel better, Grandma will take you home.”
“I…” Ruan Qiuqiu instinctively wanted to refuse Grandma Ruyi’s offer. Although she hadn’t been out for long, she had this nagging feeling that Mr. Gray Wolf was at a critical period and felt uneasy if she wasn’t watching him.
Qing Ruyi tapped Ruan Qiuqiu’s forehead. “A half-demon and half-fiend’s vitality is very tenacious. You’re weaker now. If you rashly go back, not only will you not be able to help him, you’ll just make the situation worse. Alright, go back with Grandma. I’ll tell you about cultivation methods and information about the nearby tribes on the walk back.”
Qing Ruyi stopped concealing her power. She used willow branches to dig out the remaining wild vegetables, and it didn’t take her long to finish. She also caught a passing fat bird with a willow branch without much effort.
She weaved the willow branches together to make a mat for Ruan Qiuqiu to sit on. After settling Ruan Qiuqiu on it, she started walking back.
If Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t know that Grandma Ruyi was several times stronger than her, she would feel embarrassed seeing a bent over old lady dragging the willow mat. Besides, she had a hard time standing, much less walking.
Since Qing Ruyi didn’t slow down her pace in consideration of Ruan Qiuqiu, it didn’t take them long to return to the vicinity of Grandpa Mo’s cave.
It was usually quiet here, but when they were almost at the cave, they heard cursing.
“Uncle Lin Xun, this rotten brat, Mo Yu, is the one that snuck into the clan shaman’s cave last time and stole a lot of herbs. You little brat, hurry up and apologize!”
Hearing that familiar young wolf demon’s voice, Ruan Qiuqiu raised her head and saw Ning Yue. He was the wolf demon that had given her a hard time when she went to the Fire Wolf Tribe to try to trade for herbs.
There was a middle-aged wolf demon next to Ning Yue. He was the leader of the group that had brought her here from the Wind Lion Tribe.
Near the two wolf demons, there was the Mo family. There were wounds and dirt of varying degrees on them. Grandpa Mo and Mo Mao were standing in front of Little Yu and Little Bohe and holding bone knives that they usually used to cut meat.
“Old Man, get out of my way.” Ning Yue’s tone was unkind. He pointed at Little Yu, who was behind Grandpa Mo. “Your grandson needs to apologize. According to the rules, we’ll let you off after making the thief’s mark on his face.”
Ruan Qiuqiu stood up. She was full of anger, but because of her weakened condition, her words came out weakly. “Are you kidding me?”
If they carved the thief’s mark on Little Yu’s face, then he would be ostracized for the rest of his life. Moreover, Little Yu had never stolen herbs from the clan’s witch’s cave. He had only gone there to see what the herbs looked like, so he could find them himself. If he had stolen herbs, then he wouldn’t have risked his safety to go looking for herbs with her in the forest.
As for the middle-aged wolf demon Lu Xun, although he didn’t say anything, he obviously agreed with Ning Yue’s words. Even if he knew the clan shaman’s herbs had actually been taken by other demons, so what?
In his eyes, Grandpa Mo and his family, who had only lived in the Fire Wolf Tribe for a short period of time, were just people of no importance.
