Chapter 196 – Ruan Qiuqiu opened up her eyes slowly and she saw bright light in front of her (1)
Young Mr. Grey Wolf could no longer touch her right foot that was transparent by now.
The parts that were transparent continued to grow. That was perhaps the amount of time that she had left in this memory world. As the transparent area continued to expand. She figured she had perhaps two more days’ time to spend here with him.
Ruan Qiuqiu looked at the piece of giant leave that young Mr. Grey Wolf got from somewhere with sparkling water inside of it and her heart ached. She didn’t know what to say.
young Mr. Grey Wolf, who had keen observation, noticed that she was a bit blue and seemingly unhappy.
Pursing his lips, he hesitated for a little while before he shook off the water droplets that was stuck to his long eyelashes from his earlier trip and removed the two pinches of wolf hair that were stick to Ruan Qiuqiu’s mask.
Young Mr. Grey Wolf carefully held the hair in his palm. These were hair that now had little wife’s odor. He would keep it somewhere safe later.
“Wolf, aowu… … go out… … (wolf will go outside. Qiuqiu should get up quickly.)” young Mr. Grey Wolf looked at Ruan Qiuqiu and anticipation sparkled in his spring-like eyes. “Aoru… … (Would you like wolf to take you fishing in a little while?)”
Perhaps she would feel better if they go out some.
Ruan Qiuqiu picked up his hand. She wanted very much to nod but, never mind about going fishing, with her current state, if she was not super careful, young Mr. Grey Wolf might very well notice that her right foot had disappeared.
His anticipating look made her heart ached.
Ruan Qiuqiu’s eyes reddened. She didn’t know how to tell the little wolf cub in front of her that she would not be able to go fishing with him.
Not only would she not be able to go fishing with him. Pretty soon, she would not even be able to talk to him anymore.
Ruan Qiuqiu couldn’t help but wonder whether he would be more upset when she disappeared in three days’ time or her telling him now that none of this was real.
She parted her lips and her throat was dry, “I… …”
Ruan Qiuqiu was half way through her sentence when little Yuan Jue interrupted her.
“Aoru~ (The wolf got it. Qiuqiu is sick, right?)” A certain wolf, who still refusing to wake up, remained in his wolf cub state. His pretty eyes became more lonesome.
“Ao… … Auru. (Wolf will go look for herbs.)” There was an almost unnoticeable plea in the bottom of his eyes. Looking intensely at Ruan Qiuqiu, a hint of redness rose from the bottom of his eyes and his eyes reddened.
He looked like he was about to cry.
The wolf made Ruan Qiuqiu wanted to cry as well.
She knew that this little wolf cub in front of her right now was big Mr. Gray Wolf who had pinned her to the stone bed at home.
She also knew that big Mr. Gray Wolf subconsciously refused to wake up.
Even though she would not leave him after he woke up.
As such, why was this wolf so clingy?
As much as she understood that, the wolf still touched the soft part of her heart.
She reached out and held onto young Mr. Grey Wolf’s hand. “My legs hurt. I can’t go fishing today.
“We have enough food at home. What say you stay home and keep me company today?”
Young Mr. Grey Wolf’s eyes reddened even more when he heard the word “home” coming from Ruan Qiuqiu.
Finally, the human and the wolf had gone nowhere. The two of them stayed inside the cave and had more lesson on human language.
Ruan Qiuqiu’s right foot did not recover. In fact, the rate that it spread was faster than she was anticipated.
By that evening, everything below her calf was already transparent.
Luckily, there was no associated pain as her consciousness turn transparent. Ruan Qiuqiu did not feel any discomfort.
Ruan Qiuqiu wouldn’t let young Mr. Grey Wolf left in the day that followed.
Her right leg and her back had almost all become transparent.
Young Mr. Grey Wolf had noticed something was wrong with her a while ago but he did not insist on remove the dried grass from over her right leg. He acted very normal in front of her and everything appeared to be calm.
By the afternoon of the second day, young Mr. Grey Wolf suddenly said that he needed to go hunt and to have Ruan Qiuqiu wait for him at home.
