Chapter 184 – Aowu. (It wasn’t me.) (2)
Ruan Qiuqiu noticed that the level 4 spiritual energy stone that she had stuffed into his hand was gone, and there were only powdered remains left on the bed. Yuan Jue must have absorbed all of the spiritual energy from that stone.
Fortunately, she was lucky today and found small spiritual energy stones inside that fat pigeon. Otherwise, there really wouldn’t be enough.
Ruan Qiuqiu climbed onto the stone bed. She took out two small spiritual energy stones and stuffed them into the wolf’s hand.
She sat down near Yuan Jue and chose to save the remaining two small spiritual energy stones as backup instead of using them herself. She started cultivating to restore her spiritual energy.
Keeping in mind that Grandma Ruyi had said it was easy for Yuan Jue to fall into a nightmare, so she had to talk to him more, Ruan Qiuqiu only circulated spiritual energy for two cycles before stopping. That was enough to recover her physical strength. Then, she took a deep breath and started chatting with the gray wolf.
He was in a very bad state now. Although his injuries had already healed, his expression was gloomy and fierce even with his fangs put away. From time to time, he growled warningly in his sleep.
While stroking his tail, Ruan Qiuqiu shared with him what happened today.
“Grandma Ruyi told me she’s half-fiend and half-demon. Mr. Gray Wolf Tianluo, do you know what that is?” Ruan Qiuqiu’s voice was soft without any concealment. “She said you’re a half-fiend and half-demon too.”
“Grandpa Mo looks older than he is because he tried to save Grandma Ruyi.” As Ruan Qiuqiu said this, her smile became wry and also relieved.
Ruan Qiuqiu slowly sorted out what Grandma Ruyi had told her. “We also have a new enemy. It’s a fiend that’s about to become a fiend king. That sounds a bit scary. Still, I didn’t know you used to be a powerful level 5 warrior. I thought you were at level 3… I really don’t know you very well.”
Ruan Qiuqiu found her words funny and laughed, but she strangely felt a bit sad too.
At the beginning, she had assumed that Mr. Gray Wolf and her were cannon fodder in other people’s stories, and they were meant to die early. She had thought their strength and radiance would never be greater than that of Lu Ziran’s and Rou Yuerao’s, but Mr. Gray Wolf was actually much stronger.
Thinking about it now, Mr Gray Wolf probably didn’t die of natural causes in winter in the book. He was probably killed by Grandma Ruyi’s master.
Ruan Qiuqiu’s heart palpitated at the thought of that.
She blinked and lowered her head to look at the wolf’s expression.
Not only did her chatter fail to ease his expression, he looked even more gloomy than before. Was he in too much pain?
After a slight consideration, she stretched her hand out to mesh her spiritual energy with the fiend energy in his body to share some of his pain.
However, as soon as she released a trace of spiritual energy, she saw the wolf, whose eyes had been tightly shut, stir.
He opened his long, narrow eyes, revealing scarlet pupils.
Ruan Qiuqiu paused and called out, “Husband… Are you awake?”
“Aowu. (It wasn’t me.)” Hearing Ruan Qiuqiu’s voice, Yuan Jue slowly closed his eyes again. His eyelashes trembled. His eyes were left open by a crack. Suddenly, he grabbed Ruan Qiuqiu’s arm.
Ruan Qiuqiu: “???”
“Ao… (Wasn’t….)” Yuan Jue mumbled. While Ruan Qiuqiu was trying to guess what the wolf was saying, he slowly sat up. In his unclear state, he was shaky and his upper body fell down on her.
Ruan Qiuqiu: “…”
Caught off guard by the sudden heavy weight, she ended up being slammed down on the stone bed.
The wolf’s slightly rough breathing was by her ears. Ruan Qiuqiu’s auricles turned red. Her mind went blank, and there was only one thought left – fortunately, she had made pillows from the soft sheepskin. Her head had hit the pillow, so it didn’t hurt too much. Still, she had yelped in surprise from the wolf’s sudden movement.
“Ao…” Yuan Jue propped himself up. He looked down at her with narrowed scarlet eyes.
From Ruan Qiuqiu’s perspective, this wolf had kabedon-ed her and was even staring at her.
If she didn’t know that the wolf wasn’t fully conscious from the fiend energy taking over, she would think Yuan Jue had other intentions.
